L-G Anil Baijal’s note on scheme ‘saddens’ Manish Sisodia

Continuing the attack on Lieutenant-Governor (L-G) Anil Baijal, Delhi deputy chief minister Manish Sisodia said on Wednesday that he was “extremely saddened” after reading the noting of the L-G on doorstep delivery of services scheme.On Tuesday, Sisodia had alleged that the L-G rejected the proposal for 40 doorstep services in the national Capital. “I am unable to understand why the L-G has a problem with residents of Delhi getting delivery of services at their doorstep? The basic question that arises is that should a selected L-G have the power to reject a major decision of the elected government?” Sisodia asked on Wednesday.Among the 40 public services that were to be covered under the scheme in the first phase were caste certificates, income certificates, driving licences, duplicate driving licences, new water and sewer connections, handicap pension schemes, domicile certificates, delayed birth order, Lal Dora certificates, etc. Clarifying the doubts raised by the L-G, Sisodia said these services will put an end to the long queues in government offices. “There will be a 100 per cent feedback system to check corruption and quality of services. There is no fear of documents going missing as the executive will visit your place, scan the documents, and upload them then and there. This system will be super quick. The executive will visit your place on a phone call and provide the services,” he explained.The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government had planned to hire a private agency to implement the decision. According to the plan, mobile sahayaks (facilitators) will be hired through the agency, which would set up call centres.

Army for stricter scrutiny to weed out tainted during promotions

The Indian Army has put in place a stringent disciplinary policy for stricter scrutiny, when it promotes officers, to ensure those tainted do not move up in its hierarchy.The regime will keep a record of even minor offences, including misconducts of at least 10 years, and in some cases, the entire service duration, if the condemnation has been awarded by the Chief or the Central government.This is in wake of senior officers found involved in cases of misbehaviour or un-officer like acts early in their careers and reaching high ranks. Land scams, involving senior officers, scandalous affairs and sexual misconduct in some cases have dented the Army’s image.Sources said several cases at higher levels showed officers who had committed serious misdemeanours managed to go past scrutiny and got promoted. This triggered a change in the Army’s policy.”An in-house review suggested that more scrutiny is needed to make sure serial offenders don’t rise in service as many such cases were identified recently,” said an Army source.There were many instances when wrongdoings of the past were not detected and officers went on to hold high offices.”The change in policy will make sure that an officer’s shady past will not go unnoticed,” the source added.The disciplinary policy is divided into two: Court Martial for serious offences, including criminal acts, and Administrative Action in the form of a Censure, which till now was recordable and non-recordable.Non-recordable offences were minor in nature and were not part of Annual Confidential Reports (ACRs) or a dossier maintained for every officer.”The customs of service of the Army demand the highest standards of personal conduct and respect for military law. The selection of officers now requires the past disciplinary and administrative record of officers to be placed before the selection boards,” a letter circulated to all sections of the Army said.With the new policy in place, non-recordable offences are a thing of the past. Every censure will be part of records for a period of at least 10 years and will reflect in ACRs that could impact future promotions.Censures are awarded for acts considered “minor in nature” and don’t involve criminality or moral turpitude. According to the new policy, cases that do not fall under the minor offence category but are not criminal acts to be tried under a Court Martial can be forwarded to the headquarters for award of a censure by the Army Chief.Censures will be of two types: severe displeasure or displeasure.While the award of a censure will not debar an officer from being considered for promotion but it will be taken note of as part of the overall record of service in assessing the credentials of the officer. This will ensure that the entire record of the officer will be placed before the selection board.

Max hospital case: Probe to be delayed in twin baby case as police still waiting for DMC’s reply

Delhi Police’s probe into the case of the twin babies, one of whom was wrongly declared dead by the Max Hospital in Shalimar Bagh, may be delayed since it is waiting for the Delhi Medical Council’s (DMC) reply on the matter.The DMC has already issued a notice to nine doctors and two nurses of the hospital on December 20 for alleged medical negligence in connection with the case and has sought a response from them in 15 days.Currently, the case is being probed by Delhi Police’s Crime Branch.A senior police officer, privy to the probe, said that since the case was of medical negligence, they had to rely on expert’s opinion.”Our officers have interacted with the doctors and nurses of the hospital. We have also spoken to the child’s family but there are some technical points that we need clarity on before we proceed ahead in the probe,” he said.The officer said that the baby was 22-weeks-old and premature. According to medical guidelines, babies born before 22 weeks or around that time usually do not survive and were not considered as deliveries.There are medical guidelines, but the fact that the baby was declared dead despite being alive, was being probed, he said.The officer said that they were awaiting the council’s report in the matter and further investigation will be based on the report.The case pertains to a baby boy being wrongly declared dead after his birth on November 30 by the upscale private hospital. The other twin, a girl, was still-born. The infant boy died a week later at a nursing home in Pitampura.The case sparked a public outcry and the family has been protesting in front of the hospital, soon after an appellate authority stayed the order by the Delhi government to cancel the licence of the facility.

‘Disruption’ during Christmas celebration in Rajasthan, Hindu activists allege religious conversions

Christmas celebrations in Rajasthan’s Pratapgarh town were allegedly disrupted by Hindu activists on Tuesday. Hindu activists have alleged that organisers were carrying out religious conversions. According to reports, around 7: 30 pm on Tuesday, a group of people accompanied by the police arrived and ordered the organisers of the event to halt the proceedings. A couple of tribals were allegedly taken into the custody but later released, say media reports. Police officers have denied the allegations of vandalism. “The organisers did not have permission to hold a religious gathering. So, they voluntarily halted the programme upon being approached by the police,” Hindustan Times quoted Pratapgarh superintendent of police Shivraj Meena as saying. The organisers have submitted a memorandum to the district administration, demanded action against those who disrupted the programme. Both the parties have not registered an FIR in the case. Some villagers have alleged that tension has been brewing up for a long time here. “Pratapgarh is a tribal area, the people are being lured to convert,” alleged Sachin Patwa, a villager who demanded action against such conversion. The organisers have denied allegations of conversions. “We come here to pray, and don’t offer any inducement to make people convert,” said Ramesh, Secretary Masih Shakti Samiti. Senior leaders of Vishwa Hindu Parishad and Shiv Sena have denied any knowledge of the incident.

WB Mahila Morcha leader slams Mamata Banerjee over record

National president of the BJP Mahila Morcha, Vijaya Rahatkar on Wednesday criticised West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee and stated that in spite of being a woman, her state tops the list in atrocities against women.”According to the recent report of the National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB), West Bengal is ahead in violence against women. Domestic violence is the highest here and it also leads in the number of acid attack cases. Of the 283 acid attacks last year, Bengal alone accounted for 76 cases and affected 83 victims. In spite of there being specific Supreme Court guidelines in terms of storage and sale of acids, it is flouted rampantly in West Bengal and the state government has failed to check it,” she said after a day-long meeting with the Bengal BJP women’s wing.She also said that Bengal heads the list of cases of human trafficking. “Bengal shares its border with countries like Bangladesh, Nepal and Bhutan because of which human trafficking is very high here. Of the 8132 cases nationwide last year, Bengal registered 3579 cases. The state has a woman Chief Minister and we expect her to be sensitive but we find the government here is insensitive,” she said.She also said that her instruction to the Bengal chapter was to put up a movement against this government.

Over 250 MHADA flats to be on offer

Here’s good news for homebuyers who have been looking for affordable houses within city limits. According to senior MHADA officials, the forthcoming lottery that in most likelihood will be held in May will have 278 homes in the affordable segment in the Wadala region. If one doesn’t consider Sion, then the authority hasn’t had many affordable home projects on this side of the city. This will help MHADA have its image correction as the lottery in November had only eight homes in the Economically Weaker Section.MHADA faced criticism from various corners after the November lottery had very few homes on offer — 820 to be precise. But what was worse that the number of homes for the EWS category was the lowest.

30,000 illegal shops still operational in Saki Naka

Even after an inferno in an illegal farsan manufacturing shop killed 12 people in Mumbai’s Saki Naka area, there are still thousands of shops running illegally in the area becoming virtual ticking tinderboxes for potential fires to happen. With population over 10 lakh and over 60,000 shops, officials from the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation’s (BMC) L ward are having a tough time keeping vigil on unlicensed shops. Officials are now demanding a split of the ward for effective management. Every month, the ward receives over 1500 fresh applications seeking permission to open a new shop. With limited number of staff available in the Shop and Establishment department, number of applications is always high. Additionally officials also have to visit to the site to verify documents. “We have only four employees in the Shop and Establishment department who have to look after all new applications they receive every month,” said Ajit Kumar Ambi, assistant commissioner of L ward.Though the civic administration have been pushing the online system as part of ease of doing business, it is mandatory for the officials to carry a site visit. “In the days to come, the pressure is likely to come down while registering new shops in the ward, but keeping a vigil on existing shops is a difficult task,” said an official from the Shop and Establishment department of L ward. “There is a consensus issue among the corporators on merging and splitting of wards in the city which is delaying it’s implementation,” said the official.However, following the fire incident the administration has sprung into action. “ Merging and splitting of L ward is under consideration and a decision will be taken in days to come,” said Sudhir Naik, Deputy Municipal Commissioner(DMC) of BMC. Of around 60000 shops registered with the L ward, around 30,000 tiny small scale manufacturing units in the ward around the Khairane Road in Saki Naka are running illegally. According to senior civic officials, politicians have vested interest in flourishing such shops.RESOURCE CRUNCHPopulation of L ward: 10 lakh Corporators: 16 Vacant staffs in the ward: 45 Shop and Establishment: 5

Gujarat Election Results: Did NOTA cost Congress the state?

The Bharatiya Janta Party (BJP) will end up forming the government for the sixth term, but in some constituencies the elections saw NOTA as a key player.NOTA or None of The Above is exercised by a voter when s/he does not wish to choose any of the candidates on the ballot.The vote share of NOTA stands at 1.8%, higher than that of parties such as the BSP and the NCP. In essence, if NOTA was a party, it would have been the third most polled beside Congress and BJP. In all, 5,40,566 NOTA votes were recorded in Gujarat, the Election Commission shared on its website. According to the constitutional body, 1.8% of the voters didn’t vote for any party. BJP so far has won 49% of the vote, while the Congress has won 41% of the vote.But the question arises: given how close this election has turned out to be, has the NOTA votes cost the Congress? Data suggests that the margin of victory for the BJP was less than 10% in 33 constituencies. Porbunder was one of the seats that witnessed this. The winning margin of the BJP’s Babubhai Bokhriya is 1,855, while NOTA received 3,433 votes. There are 15 seats where the difference between winner and loser is less than 1000 votes. Also readGujarat Elections 2017: No longer a cakewalk for BJP in 2019 LS poll, says TRS leaderThus it can well be said NOTA and the fact that Gujarat witnessed a sharp drop in voting, finally helped BJP bunk the anti-incumbency trend. Interestingly, the Supreme Court said that a re-election was out of the question if NOTA was ever a majority in a general, assembly or civic election. The landmark judgment that was passed last month debunked a petition and said that conducting polls was an expensive exercise.Also read5 reasons why BJP managed to win Gujarat for consecutive 6th timeA bench led by Chief Justice Dipak Misra further observed that to entertain the plea, the court would have to declare that a candidate should compulsorily get 51 per cent of the votes to be declared winner.The top court termed the suggestion “unworkable” and said, “we cannot destroy our democracy just like that… holding an election in our country is a very serious and expensive business. Today we cannot say that unless a person gets 51 per cent of votes, he cannot be declared elected.”

Bloody business: Pvt blood banks irk donor

A voluntary blood donor has decided to write a letter against non-government blood banks that force relatives of patients to purchase blood bags from the hospital’s blood banks where the patient is admitted.According to Zahid Khambatti, a voluntary blood donor, relatives of patients are charged extra and forced to purchase blood bags and other blood components from the hospital where the patient is admitted, instead of letting them bring blood bags from outside. Khambatti has discussed the issue with an official from the State Blood Transfusion Council (SBTC).Khambatti said, “Saifee Hospital in Charni Road charged a bypass surgery patient to buy blood bags from the hospital’s blood bank even when the patient was willing to buy the blood bags from outside. When a blood bag is purchased from the hospital where the patient is admitted, he has to shell out more money.” However, Saifee Hospital’s blood transfusion officer (BTO) denied the information. Dr Ainy Choonia said, “We are not forcing anybody to buy from our blood bank. They directly communicate with the consultant about the requirements and it is arranged accordingly.”As per a Right To Information (RTI) reply, 34 non-government blood banks that collect more than 2,000 units of blood have a shortage of BTOs. According to SBTC, every shift requires one BTO and one extra for camps.RTI activist, Chetan Kothari, said, “FDA has taken action against almost all corporation and government blood banks for shortage of staff but are not willing to take action against non-government blood banks. The list of violators includes big hospitals like Lilavati, Jaslok, and Breach Candy hospital.”

Closed Circuit Television (CCTV) cameras installed inside Junior Crafting Nursery, the preschool in Sher-e-Punjab, Andheri (East) into which a leopard found its way on Sunday morning, made the rescue operation easier for forest officers. According to the officials, it’s the live feed of the cameras that helped them keep a track on the leopard’s movement.The leopard, which was first spotted in the local Gurudwara’s garden, jumped inside the preschool from its rear. Fortunately, being a Sunday morning, the day care center and preschool were shut and there were no casualties.Ritu Sethi, owner of the preschool, who stays nearby, was immediately contacted by residents of the building. Sethi said, “More than 250 children are part of this preschool. We don’t know what would have happened if the leopard had entered on a weekday but we are thankful to god that there was no tragedy.” She added, “I got a call from the building residents stating that a leopard has entered the preschool premises. Since I stay close by, it took me a few minutes to get to the spot. While the leopard was moving in the building premises, some people began shouting which may have frightened it due to which it may have jumped inside the preschool.”Honorary Wildlife Warden (Mumbai city) Sunish Kunju said, “Since there were many cameras, it helped us track the exact movement of the leopard for more than 10 hours till the time he was trapped and rescued. Regular updates of the leopard’s movement made it easier for us to locate him especially because he was in an enclosed space.”Sethi, who was on the spot for more than 10 hours showing the live feed to the officials, stated that the preschool and day care center is usually open from 8 am to 10 pm on all days except Sunday.On the precautions to be taken henceforth, Sethi, added, “It was a long day for us as we were on the spot since morning. We will think about precaution measures to be taken in the future. We are simply happy that no one was injured.”CONFLICTS IN THE CITYSeptember 30, 2017Two women are attacked by a leopard, suspected to be behind five other attacks, in Aarey Colony.August 21, 2016 A leopard attacks and kills a man near Tokawade, Shahpur, Thane.August 20, 2016 A leopard attacks and kills 52-year-old Barku Bhoir while he was grazing cattle in the Palu-Sonavale dam area.August 15, 2016 A female leopard attacks Vasant Irim, a resident of Amgaon, Talasari who later died.October 11, 2015 A four-year-old girl from Kamtipada in Thane district died after she was attacked by a leopard when she was asleep in her open house.January 13, 2015 A fast-moving car rammed into two leopards, killing one, while they were crossing the Mumbai-Ahmedabad highway.October 2013 Seven-year-old Prakash Salunkhe, who was on his way home from Aarey municipal school, was killed after a leopard attacked him.October 2013 A leopard mauled four-year-old Hiya Mhase while she was out answering nature’s call close to her house at Khadakpada in Aarey colony.January 2013 Ten-year-old Saurabh Yadav was killed by a leopard at Adarsh Nagar in Aarey when he was answering nature’s call.January 2013 Vinod Hadal, an 18-year-old from Moroshi Pada in Thane district, was attacked by a leopard.November 2012 Sitabai Paage, 50, a resident of Moroshi Pada in Thane district, was killed by a leopard when she stepped out of her house at night to relieve herself.Compiled by DNA — Research N Archives

Reel to real: How a south Indian movie gave shoe-tastic idea to this Rajasthan lineman!

Films imitate life or is it vice versa? If the linemen of the electricity department at Bhilwara are to be believed films have given them a brilliant idea to make their job easier. A scene from a south Indian dubbed film had a man climbing a pole with fabricated iron shoes that could be fixed on the pole.One of the linemen working with the Ajmer Discom at Bhilwara saw it and decided to get similar shoes fabricated to end his pole climbing woes. What is the linemen’s problem – The linemen have to climb poles to rectify faults which necessitates carrying a ladder, that further makes presence of two employees necessary so that the ladder can be carried. Once the lineman climbs the ladder, he needs to use one hand to keep his balance and connection with the pole. It further necessitates a vehicle to carry the ladder. When linemen travel to distant rural areas, they have to hire ladders. How the shoes were fabricated – The linemen went to a local ironsmith and got the shoes fabricated. That too at a cost below Rs 500. The plastic shoes to be worn with then came at Rs 400 approximately. So at a nominal cost, the linemen were all set to climb poles much like spidermen. The fame of the shoes spread across villages and now linemen in 25 panchayats of Bhilwara are using the shoes to make their job easier. “We climb up the poles in a jiffy. Can travel to the location on motorcycles. The shoes are a boon,” said Sakruddin, a lineman. But there is a catch to the innovative shoes; iron is a bad conductor and linemen are at a risk. But as it is not an official contraption, the department is legally not responsible. According to official sources, “The linemen are doing it on their own. The department has not issued the shoes or asked them to use them. There is a risk of electrocution.” The linemen have a philosophical view, “The poles are made of cement and so are safe. As for the electricity wires, we are at risk even when using the ladders.” said Vinod Jat, a lineman. The electricity department has however, not issued any advisory or instructions about the possible risk of using the shoes.

Ola driver allegedly harasses Bengaluru woman, uses child lock to trap her in cab

An Ola cab driver allegedly harassed a 23-year-old woman after trapping her in the car using child lock on Sunday night in Bengaluru. The woman, whose mobile phone battery had run out, could not alert anyone and was let go by the driver after she started banging on the windows and screamed. According to media reports, the incident took place around 10.30 pm on Sunday when the woman, a fashion stylist, booked the cab. The driver took her to a deserted spot on the Ring Road in south east Bengaluru and suddenly stopped, the woman said. The driver then locked the doors engaging child safety locks and started harassing her. The woman said he kept harassing her until he was forced to unlock the car when she banged on the windows and screamed.The woman said that she ran for a few hundred meters before she found an auto-rickshaw. “There was nobody on the road. I was looking out of the window when he suddenly stopped and started touching my legs. I warned him and tried to damage the car. He let me go then. He tried calling me later to warn me but then I blocked his number,” she was quoted as saying by NDTV.She went to the police but decided not to file a complaint as the driver had been warned.Responding to the incident, an Ola spokesperson said, “We regret the unfortunate experience the customer had during their ride. We have zero tolerance to such incidents and the driver has been suspended from the platform as an immediate action upon receiving the complaint.”The company urged the the woman to file a formal complaint, adding that it would give “full support” to the investigation against the driver.The woman, however, alleged that Ola did not inform her about the action it took against the driver.”I reported the incident to Ola on Sunday night itself but even on Monday, when the police asked, they had not taken any action. Even now they haven’t told me what action has been taken. He was rated 4.9 on the app. What is the company doing to ensure women who use the service are safe?” she asked.

Cyber crime conviction rate in Maharashtra touches alarming level

In a bid to increase detection and conviction rate of cyber crimes in the state and the city, the Mumbai police have organised five days cyber crime training workshop for policemen and have setup a specialsed cyber crime investigation units at each police station in Mumbai. According to the statistics provided by Maharashtra Police, the state Police has an extremely poor conviction as well as detection rate in Cyber-Crime cases. Statistics shows that since 2012, on an average, almost 80 % of the cases results in acquittal of accused. The poor conviction rate only raises questions over the investigation techniques adopted and evidences gathered by the police department in probing Cyber-Crime cases.From 2012 till June 2017, trial in 184 cyber-crime cases got completed, of which there were convictions in 34 cases and acquittals in 150 cases, statistics revealed.Also readBaba Ramdev’s Patanjali to step into solar power business, will invest Rs 100 croreAccording to the statistics, the detection rate of Cyber Crime cases is only 31% in last five-and-a-half years. Out of 10,419 cases registered under Information Technology Act along with Indian Penal Code and Special law cases, since year 2012 till June 2017, only 3167 cases have been detected.While registration of Cyber-Crime cases have increased from 900 cases in 2012 to 2417 in year 2016, the detection rate has fallen from 33.3 percent in 2012 to 23.07 in the year 2016.Also readAirAsia tickets in Rs 999: deal details you need to knowAlso the pendency of Cyber-Crime cases in court is on the higher side. As per the statistics, 10,235 Cyber-Crime cases are still pending in the court. Cyber experts and cyber criminal lawyers said that lack of proper training and poor investigation skills leads to poor conviction rate and detection rate. “Electronic evidence requires to be collected and processed expeditiously and in a manner which stands the test of trial. Inordinate delay in either collection or forensic analyses will adversely affect the legality and proving of such evidence. The forensic cyber lab in Mumbai is grossly over worked and hence forensic analysis and reports are much delayed in many cases. In addition, delays in registration of cases and in investigations by the police irreparably harm effective decisions in cases,” said N. S. Nappinai, advocate and author specialising in cyber laws.Also readPaytm ka ATM is here! Firm plans to invest Rs 3000 crore over next 3 years to expand offline distribution network”Sometimes complainants also delay filing of complaints – this may be due to either confusion with respect to rights available with them or lack of confidence in the system. That the number of cases filed does not reflect the actual cyber-crimes committed is probably a reflection of this! Each of the above may be contributory factors resulting in the abysmally low convictions,” Nappinai added. “Since police is unable to gather sufficient evidences in such cases, it results in poor conviction. There is a need for special cyber-crime courts to fast track the cases. Also the quality of training should be upgraded. There is load on forensic lab too and report is delayed there. Even citizens should be aware and beware from being a cyber crime victim,” said Ritesh Bhatia, cyber security expert.”We conduct regular training sessions for police on cyber-crimes. The reason behind the less detection is that most of the crimes occur overseas or from the other cities and states due to which it becomes difficult to trace the culprits. Other technical factors too results in delayed probe,” said a senior IPS officer.Following the low rates the city police has setup the cyber crime investigation unit has been established at each police station in #Mumbai. Will consist of a seven member team. Five day training session started from Monday.”One inspector, two assistant inspectors.or sub inspectors and three to four constables selected for forming cyber crime units at each police station.we are also appealing citizens to come to police stations and register their complaints if they have become a victim of cyber crime,” said Deepak Devraj, Mumbai police spokesperson and Deputy Commissioner of Police.

Watch: Elephant, calf enter a house to find food – here’s what happened next

We all know elephants are gentle giants. But often their interaction with humans lead to unfortunate results. In many places, elephants who enter human locality lead to massive destruction of public property and sometimes attack people too. But it was not the case in Coimbatore recently. According to a clip, which has gone viral and shared by news agency ANI, an elephant and its calf entered the yard of a house looking to get some food. However, not seeing any food in the vicinity, the elephants slowly made their way out without causing any harm to property. Luckily there wasn’t any human being in the vicinity, so no was injured. However sometimes the situation is not so rosy. Last month, on the 24th, a herd of seven elephants damaged standing paddy crop in a number of villages in Gajapati district of Odisha. The herd strayed into the villages under Goshani block near Paralakhemundi and it might have migrated from Lakhari elephant reserve via Srikakulam in Andhra Pradesh, Divisional Forest Officer, Berhampur, A K Behera, who is also the in-charge of Paralakhemundi Forest Divicion said.With increasing urbanisation, the number of conflicts between humans and animals are on the rise. According to reports, over 1000 people have been killed in the last three years owing to attack from elephants.Also readBangladesh: Wild elephants trample two Rohingya refugees to deathWith PTI inputs

JMC’s call centre number changed without notice

Jaipur Municipal Corporation changed the number of its call centre a week ago but did not inform the public about it, creating unnecessary inconvenience for the common man.People are unable to register complaints regarding cleanliness, street lights, stray cattle, sewer, encroachment and other problems. A separate call center should have set up for complaint related to Door to Door Waste Collection but the JMC is using the same call centre for this purpose.For almost 13 years, the JMC call center has been operational. BJP state president Ashok Parnami introduced this service during his tenure as mayor. This call center number was 5110111, 5110686 and 2742900. Former mayor Jyoti Khandelwal extended this call centre and added call centre toll-free number 1800-180-6681. All types of complaints were registered on toll-free number. This toll-free number was advertised in the city through hoardings and boards. About 15 days ago, all the numbers were changed including the toll-free number. The new toll-free number is 2747400. According to sources, the number of call centre was changed to benefit the BVG company, working for Door to Door Waste Collection in the city. Under the terms of Door to Door Waste Collection Project, the company had to set up the separate call centre. This number should have been written on the Door to Door Waste Collection vehicles so that people could file complaints related to the company. Instead of doing so, the company’s employees were put in the existing call center of JMC.

Order freezing tribal rights in tiger reserves violates FRA, NCST tells tiger authority

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>The National Tiger Conservation Authority’s (NTCA) controversial directive from March this year asking states to stop settlement of tribal rights inside tiger reserves violates the Forest Rights Act, 2006, and should be thus kept in abeyance, the National Commission for Scheduled Tribes (NCST) told NTCA in a meeting.The NTCA, under the Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change (MoEF&CC), had said in the directive to 17 tiger bearing states that the rights settlement should be halted as the guidelines to notify ‘critical wildlife habitats’ were not formulated. This was the responsibility of MoEF&CC, and the guidelines that were to be prepared in 2007 are still pending.The NCST had taken cognizance of news reports on the NTCA directive and its secretary held a meeting with NTCA’s senior officials. It told the NTCA Member Secretary, Debabrata Swain, that a legal process cannot be halted because of the pending guidelines, and asked the authority to not displace tribals till they finalize the guidelines. The NCST chairman, Nand Kumar Sai, is also expected to convene a meeting on this issue in December.Critical wildlife habitats are essentially areas inside national parks and sanctuaries that have to be kept inviolate, free of human encumbrance. But, the Forest Rights Act (FRA) mandates settling of the rights of forest dwelling communities living inside tiger reserves, and even critical wildlife habitats. The relocation of tribals from such areas has to be done on a voluntary’ basis, only after settling their rights and taking their consent.According to official estimates, as many as 45,000 families still live in the core or critical tiger habitats.”We told them that they should not allow displacement until they have cleared the critical wildlife habitats guidelines with us. We informed them that this needs closer understanding and scrutiny and the commission has made it clear in discussions that this (directive) is in violation of the Forest Rights Act (FRA),” said Raghav Chandra, Secretary, NCST.NTCA were directed to fast track the process of formulating the guidelines. According to NCST officials, NTCA sought two to three years of time to complete this process. This was outright rejected and NTCA was told that the settlement of rights of cannot be halted because of a pending matter and they would have to to prepare the guidelines in a time-bound manner. NTCA member secretary Debabrata Swain could not be reached for comment.

Remembering 26/11 | Resolve Ayodhya issue to end terrorism: MN Singh

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>The government should resolve Ayodhya issue at the earliest and resolve it through mutual negotiations by arriving at an amicable solution if the problem of terrorism in India has to end. Other things can be taken up later on, former Mumbai police commissioner MN Singh told DNA on the eve of the ninth anniversary of 26/11.”Whether one likes it or not minorities are feeling a little uneasy in their minds. After this government came there is great anxiety in their minds. No efforts were made to resolve the Ram temple-Babri Masjid dispute in three and half years. Hindus will definitely like that the temple is built up there as they are not going to settle down for anything less than it. The government is eminently poised to take the initiative. Instead of doing that lot of other things are talked about such as Love Jihad, beef ban. It has created more tension and controversy.””We have done a great deal but there is always a possibility as far as that discontent element is there and that internal support base remains,” Singh said. He added that there have been 12 terrorist attacks in Mumbai in the last 24 years, and from 1992-93 onwards all of them were the handiwork of Muslim groups. According to Singh, the 26/11 attack was an invasion by Pakistan carried out by 10 well-trained fidayins with local support.”You may have security infrastructure but as long as there is anxiety and some discontent there will always be terror attacks in the country. In our country what has been going on is a threat from Islamic forces,” Singh said. He further added that there are two aspects of terrorism in India — one is internal and the other external.

Pay Rs 10 lakh each to 150 students for illegal admissions: SC directs medical college

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>The Supreme Court on Thursday directed a Lucknow-based medical college to pay Rs 10 lakh each to 150 students as a compensation for illegal admissions.Terming it the case ‘judicial indiscipline and impropriety’, the top court has barred the college from admitting students for the academic year 2018-19.A bench of Chief Justice Dipak Misra and Justices A M Khanwilkar and D Y Chandrachud directed the college to refund the admission fee paid by the students and slapped a fine of Rs 25 lakh to be paid to the SC registry, reported Times of India.The lawyers appearing for the Medical Council of India ( MCI ), told the bench that the High Court allowed admissions even though the college didn’t have formal. According to Hindustan Times, the case came under the scanner in September when one judge of a two-member Allahabad high court bench made hand written corrections to its original order to allow the medical college to admit students to MBBS course for 2017-18.The top court also said that the High Court bench virtually overruled the SC order, saying it may cause an institutional problem.In September, the CBI had arrested retired Orissa High Court judge Ishrat Masroor Quddusi and five others, including the chairman of a private medical college in Lucknow, which was barred from admitting students for two academic years 2017-2018 and 2018-2019.The former High Court judge was allegedly trying to help the Lucknow-based Prasad Educational Trust to overcome a bar on admitting students in its medical college for two academic years (2017-2018 and 2018-2019).Quddusi was granted bail on September 27.(With agency inputs)

Music cos masked dues as assets, finds ED

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>The Enforcement Directorate (ED), probing the case of non-payment of royalty to musicians and artistes, conducted searches at the premises of two more companies in Mumbai and found that a few of them allegedly camouflaged the dues owed by them to artistes as their company’s assets.According to the ED officials, searches were conducted at the premises of Phonographic Performance Limited (PPL) and Select Media Holdings Private Limited (SMHPL) in connection with the case. The agency also recorded the statement of PPL’s chief operating officer on Wednesday.PPL and SMHPL were to pass on the collected royalty to the Indian Performing Rights Society (IPRS) who had given them the rights of collecting the royalty. During the raid, ED found a rate card of 30,000 establishments like malls, hotels, bars and restaurants to whom the companies had provided licenses for playing music in return of royalty. “Few music companies had altered their books to mask the outstanding dues and shown it as their company’s asset instead of liability. After collecting the royalties from consumers they did not pass it on to the IPRS,” said an ED official. “We have now sought their bank account details. According to our preliminary probe, it seems that from 2008 to 2013, royalties were collected by PPL and SMHPL but were not passed on to IPRS and subsequently did not reach the artistes,” said another official.
