LED, renewable energy helps civic body save Rs 30.25 crore

The introduction of LED streetlights by AMC has helped it save 26 million units of electricity helping it reduce its power bill by Rs15.50 crore a year. With this measure, the civic body says the carbon dioxide emmission would be reduced by 2,900 tonne anually.Not only this, the wind and solar power initiatives by the AMC alongwith the LED will help it ease its wallet burden by a total of Rs 30.25 crore.”We have implemented energy conservation programme under which we have installed 1.35 lakh LED bulbs on 2,800 km of road network,” said Deepak Suthar, additional chief engineer, streetlight and project, AMC. He added that by the end of January 2018, AMC will replace 14,000 more conventional streetlights with LED bulbs. “To generate a kilo watt of energy from fossil fuel, 0.546 emission of carbon dioxide occurs. We don’t use that much energy, and it has been saved. We have calculated the consumption, hence we are saying that we will reduce emission of 2,900 tonne of carbon dioxide annually,” the engineer explained.Meanwhile, a 4.2 MW wind power plant has been commissioned by AMC at Nakhtrana in Kutch which generates 11 million units of energy, which saves Rs7.14 crore a year. Another 4.2 MW capacity’s wind power plant is under construction. Both will help AMC save Rs14.3 crore a year. The civic body has also installed 540 KW solar rooftop power system as a part of renewble energy which generates 6.5 lakh electricity units annually which will help it save Rs45.5 lakh.However, city based environmentalist Mahesh Pandya scrapped AMC claims: “Construction business is mushrooming here. There is a loss in tree cover. Even for the Metro rail project, more than 2,000 trees were chopped.”…& ANALYSISThe AMC’s green efforts which are also pocket savvy are laudable. Its effort to calculate its CO2 emission reduction by introducing LED lights and renewable energy measures is noteworthy. But, it is high time that the wealthiest civic body in Gujarat shifts its focus to calculate carbon footprint on a yearly basis regularly.

15-year-old, who killed mother and sister, shows no remorse

The 15-year-old boy, who was arrested for killing his mother and sisterat their Greater Noida residence, seems to be enjoying his time at the juvenile home. A team of doctors, including psychologists, are keeping a check on to see his behavioural changes.Speaking to DNA, the boy’s counselor, Smita Pandey, revealed that the boy is unemotional and doesn’t have seem to be guilty for killing his mother and sister.”He is a rarest of the rare case as kids come to the juvenile home with heads down and having guilt. But this boy is unstable and emotionless as he looks right into the eyes and talks. He admits to have killed his mother and sister but says that killing the mother does not make any difference in his life while as he misses his sister. He also says that he is most attached to his uncle’s son and he likes it here,” revealed Pandey.She further added that initially the boy was quiet and didn’t speak much but now he is enjoying his time as he has made a lot of friends inside the house.”The boy always expresses fascination for branded stuff as his mother never brought him suck clothes. And as he was never good in studies, he always wanted such an environment where he does not have to study at all. He also feels superior than the other kids as he is fluent in English. The boy is also insomniac as it is observed that he has a habit of being awake at night,” Pandey added.The boy is psychosexual also, as recently one of the inmates at the home had complained of sexual abuse against him.” There is an inmate named Aarav to whom the juveniles call Aarav Bhai. This boy said that Aarav reminded him of his childhood best friend but recently Aarav complained about him that he talks dirty things to him because of which his room was also changed,” Pandey stated.

Rajinikanth to float political party: The journey of Shivaji Rao Gaekwad

Superstar Rajinikanth, who rode to stardom with his unique acting style and cast a spell on people cutting across barriers, has come a long way from his humble beginnings to his much-delayed political plunge.Shivaji Rao Gaekwad, rechristened Rajinikanth on screen, is set to unveil his brand new theme of spiritual politics as he seeks to follow in the footsteps of his illustrious seniors in the industry – such as M G Ramachandran and Jayalalithaa, who rose to rule the state after successful film careers.The 67-year old actor, who had kept everyone in suspense on his political entry for the past over two decades, has chosen to make the much-awaited announcement today, saying he would form a party ahead of the next assembly elections.Also readTop 10 quotes from Rajinikanth’s speech to launch new political partyHis political plunge comes at a time when Tamil Nadu is passing through a state of flux with the death of Jayalalithaa last year and wheelchair-bound nonagenarian DMK patriarch M Karunanidhi’s virtual retirement owing to age-related issues.Born on December 12, 1950, to Ramabai and Ramoji Rao Gaekwad in Karnataka, Rajinikanth tried his hand at several odd jobs before becoming a bus conductor.Also readTamil Nadu: Rajinikanth to float political party, says, will contest next assembly pollsTo chase his dream, acting, he had to quit as a conductor on then Bangalore Transport Service’s “10 A” bus route.The first movie offer came to him when he was in the Film Institute here where he was spotted by noted director K Balachander, credited with introducing several actors who made it big in filmdom.Also readSwamy calls Rajinikanth ‘illiterate’, says ‘political entry only media hype, people of Tamil Nadu are intelligent’He made his celluloid debut in 1975 in Tamil film “Apoorva Ragangal”, a family drama directed by Balachander who gave him the screen name Rajinikanth.In his first appearance, Rajinikanth exhibited uniqueness in doing even the most mundane things like opening a gate with his leg while smoking a cigar, indicating he was a star to reckon with.He gained immense popularity with his unique style which included popping cigarettes into his mouth with ease and one- liners such as “Idhu eppadi irukku” (How is it?) in his formative years film “16 Vayadhinile”.After starting with negative image characters, Rajinikanth exploded into the Tamil film world as his potential as a hero came to the surface a few years later.His fan following kept swelling and scenes of ‘milk bath’ of his life-size cutouts and bursting of crackers became synonymous with release of his films most of which went on to become box office hits.A Padma Vibushan awardee, a honour he received last year, Rajinikanth has to his credit over 150 films, including some in Hindi and Telugu.If movies like ‘Billa’, “Aarilrundhu Arubathu Varai’ and ‘Murattu Kaalai,’ (during his formative first ten years) dramatically improved both his performance and rating as a top hero, later flicks like ‘Padayappa,’ ‘Annamalai,’ ‘Arunachalam,’ helped him become the ultimate ‘superstar’.Notably “Muthu,” became a hit even in Japan bringing him Nipponese fans.Rajinikanth’s recent super hit films include ‘Kabali’, ‘Endhiran’, ‘Chandramukhi’, and ‘Shivaji the Boss’.The cult image he had developed over the years gave away for expectations among his die-hard fans of his political foray though he appeared reluctant apparently knowing that not all matinee idols replicated their reel success in politics.Top yesteryear star and a contemporary of MGR, Shivaji Ganesan’s debut in politics turned out to be a nightmare as he was trounced his his home Thanjavur District in 1989.Many of Rajinikanth’s later films were sprinkled with “punch dialogues”, apparently aimed to please the masses.A dialogue in one of his films “Muthu” (1995) which translated “none can predict when and how I will come, but will arrive at the right time” became a rage and further fuelled hopes of his fans.Rajinikanth’s other popular punchlines including “En vazhi thani vazhi” (my way is a unique, separate way) (Padayappa), “Andavan solran Arunachalam Seiyaran (God directs me, I do it, – Arunachalam) contributed immensely to his mass appeal.For the first time, he had a taste of politics when he famously voiced his opposition to Jayalalithaa in 1996 and conversely supporting the then DMK-led coalition which captured power in the state that year.Though the actor’s opposition to Jayalalithaa was hyped by his fans as a prime factor for DMK’s success in the hustings in 1996, his declaration that he will vote for the BJP-led front in 2004 Parliamentary polls did not have any bearing.Rainikanth had said his move to support the front was based on an assurance given by the National Democratic Alliance that it would strive for linking all rivers.A spiritually inclined person, Rajinikanth has survived a serious ailment in 2011, which he referred to in his ongoing interaction with fans here yesterday and said because of their prayers to God he was alive.Despite Rajinikanth’s stature, he is not without opposition in Tamil Nadu. Fringe pro-Tamil outfits, oppose him for his Marathi roots and previous Karnataka domicile.The actor had also often been targeted for allegedly not fighting for the state’s lifeline issues such as Cauvery water row with Karnataka.Every time, the Cauvery issue erupted, the pro-Tamil outfits used to target him for his “silence,” in the matter.Seeking to counter such attacks, in 2002 the actor had said he would start a people’s movement the Cauvery issue stressing on interlinking of Himalayan and peninsular rivers.The actor had also said some months ago said he was a “Pachai Tamilan.” (A pure Tamil).Pointing to living in Tamil Nadu for over four decades patronised by the people, he had said that his father was born in Tamil Nadu’s Krishnagiri district.Rajinikanth married a Tamil Brahmin woman Latha and has two daughters Aishwarya and Soundarya, who have also entered the film world as directors.

Euphoria gripped fans of superstar Rajinikanth soon after he announced his political entry here today, with admirers of the actor bursting firecrackers and distributing sweets across Tamil Nadu.Immediately after the actor announced his political debut, his fans waved the fan club flags outside the meeting venue, and raised slogans hailing his decision.After announcing his decision, Rajinikanth walked up to the balcony of the marriage hall, and waved to his fans who had gathered in large numbers outside the venue too.In his characteristic style, he lifted both his arms and wished them in the traditional style.In reciprocation, his fans shouted slogans of ‘Thalaiva,’ (leader) and danced to popular tunes waving placards that carried his portrait, typical of his real look of the late 1980’s and 1990’s.”It is Thalaivar’s New Year gift to us,” they said.The neighbourhood in and around Raghavendra Kalyana Mandapam, the meet venue and several other locations in the city and other parts of the State echoed with sounds of firecrackers.Hailing the move, they also distributed sweets to passengers in buses, trains and other public places.The fan club flag featuring stripes of blue, white and red with a star in the centre within which an image of Rajinikanth was embossed fluttered in parts of the city.In prominent locations, mega-size wall posters hailing Rajinikanth had already appeared anticipating his political entry.

Power dept pulls plug on rly stn

It was a rude shock, but it was a reality. The power company pulled the plug on Neem Ka Thana railway station at Sikar district on Friday. The department officials were anguished over electricity bills pending. Railway officials, however, denied that any dues were pending.”We have a robust system for payment of bills and they are deposited online,” said a senior officer at North Western Railway.The railway station, meanwhile, remained in the dark for a couple of hours on a wintry evening. The payment though remained pending till the supply was resumed after nearly seven hours. “The bills have been pending for several months now and total amount is nearly two lakh,” said an assistant engineer at the discom. “We have resumed the supply for now considering public interest,” he added.This is not the first time that a public office has been held a defaulter. However, as the electricity distribution companies are under financial pressure, officials are too being pushed to reduce the due.

Outlets arrange for cabs for party-goers

Restaurants and pubs in the city have become proactive towards the safety of their customers ahead of the New Year’s Eve. To ensure that they do not drink and drive, and reach home safely after partying, a lot of outlets are arranging for cab facility.Inderjeet Singh Banga, owner of Prankster, said: “Safety of our customers is definitely of prime importance. At the same time, we don’t want them to compromise on their enjoyment, with concerns about who will drive them back home. Hence, we are offering special arrangement to pick and drop them on Sunday.”Sahil Sambhi, who runs Molecule, has tied up with cab aggregators Ola and Uber for diners who think they won’t be able to drive back home after downing a few drinks.Vault Cafe, Junction are some of the other places in the Capital which are taking measures to avoid cases of drunk driving. Umang Tewari, a restaurateur, said: “Traffic in Delhi-NCR becomes unruly, especially on days such as NYE. Constant checking, fog, unpredictable traffic, and alcohol intake, all factors are not safe to add to your positive party vibes. So, we are doing pre-bookings for transport.”

Victims of Bipolar disorder are also human beings: Shreevatsa Nevatia

Q. How was the experience of writing the book on the disorder given that you yourself is afflicted from it?I think if someone is not a writer, and then he writes a book about bipolarity, that is brave. For someone who has always wanted to write, writing this book, was, more than courageous, it was cathartic. I felt much better after having written about my experiences. I felt I could make sense of it. One thing I have learnt is that the more you talk about things, the more you try and give it a guise of a story, the more are people able to participate in your narrative.Q. Do you think it is important to talk about the disorder?I don’t think people who want to keep it private, should be forced to make it public. I am blessed with a support system, a social circle, that allows me to talk about my condition and not judge me for it. There might be people who are bipolar, who do not want to talk about it because their support system might not encourage them to do so. One must keep in mind that not everyone has a luxury to talk. I am blessed to have a support system.Q. What are the ways in which they can be helped?More than coming out, it would help if you talk about it and see if you can find a kind and patient hear. If you find one such person, sometimes that might just be enough for you to come out of whatever it is that you might be suffering from. A medical or a therapeutic help is something that you should seek.Q. What can be done to understand a person suffering from the disorder?I would quite simply say, create spaces so that people can talk and you can listen. People who are bipolar, or afflicted with any kind of mental disorder, all they require is, their narratives and stories to be given some validity. Don’t just dismiss them as mad or as strange. Try to see whether you are able to detect, from what they say, a certain amount of logic. Like everyone else, they can also teach you that life can be lived. They are as human as anyone else.Coming to terms:Taking about the most difficult part of the book to write, Shreevatsa Nevatia said, “It was talking about my child sexual abuse that was most difficult.”“That was certainly hard because I have never stopped to think about to or give it some form. However, having written about it, I felt I had drawn a line. It does not bother me as much any more. It doesn’t define me,” he added.KNOW THE AUTHORShreevatsa Nevatia is the editor-in-chief of National Geographic Traveller India. The book, How To Travel Light, maps Nevatia’s journey as he deals with mania and depression. Progressing through his life, as a victim of child abuse Nevatia was diagnosed with bipolar disorder in 2007. The book is an insight into the mind of a maniac and gives the reader an insight into the life of the one suffering from the mental illness and yet coming out to the world as a fighter.“I would not want to be a manic again, but I am certainly not embarrassed about my mania now,” Nevatia said.

ASI finds Mughal-era paintings inside Red Fort’s Chhata Bazaar

The Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) has found rare Mughal-era wall paintings at Chhata Bazaar, set up by emperor Shah Jahan, inside the Red Fort, during lime plaster removal. India’s apex conservation body is now working on scientific treatment of the paintings.”The bazaar has been in use since the 17th century. There have been several coatings of lime plaster. After the removal of six layers, we started to see colourful patterns, well preserved in the seventh layer,” said ASI’s Dr DN Dimri.These are intrinsic floral geometric patterns in red, yellow, green and black — common during the Mughal era.Chhata Bazaar (roofed market) was earlier known as Bazaar-i-Musaqaf — ‘safaq’ means roof — as markets in those times were mainly open. This was one of its kind that led people directly from Lahori Gate to Naubat Khana and Diwan-i-Am, crossing through a fine exhibition of carpets, zari, velvets and even gold and ivories.The market still attracts crowds visiting the fort, but silk shops now mostly sell handicraft.The ASI’s work will take at least a year to complete as it is taking the layers off the entire ceilings and walls and applying chemicals to preserve the findings.There might be plans to copy the paintings on canvas for exhibition. “I had no idea that the walls are so pretty. Though they are all covered up with scaffoldings, I climbed up to see the work that and was amazed,” said Dharampal Nagar, a third-generation shopkeeper.

Rajasthan govt puts 14,000 shell cos under scanner

Struck off by the Ministry of Corporate Affairs, thousands of shell companies registered in Rajasthan have now come under the state government scanner. The state industries department has on Thursday written to all district collectors and several departments to identify assets of these companies in the next 15 days.”More than 14,000 companies registered in Rajasthan are among the 2,24,734 listed as suspicious by the central ministry. The industry department is a nodal agency that has now initiated action against these at the state-level,” said Rajpal Singh Shekhawat, Rajasthan industries minister.To be struck off, these companies have been dormant for nearly two years or have registered suspicious transactions since demonetization.After the central ministry action, which had extended restrictions on their bank accounts, the responsibility to prevent sale of their immovable properties and other assets is to be ensured by respective state government.Industry department of the state, as nodal agency, has now written to departments of transport, revenue, tourism and other concerned departments to ensure that no vehicle, land or asset gets disposed.In addition to the companies registered at state, such companies based in other states could also have held assets in Rajasthan.”However, the state agencies have to remain aware of the dubious operations of many of these companies. Also the department is yet to decide on action against the operation of ‘suspicious board directors’ of these companies,” he said.The central ministry, while cancelling registration of these companies, also disqualified over three lakh board directors for irregularities in financial statements.On the radarTo be struck off, these companies have been dormant for nearly two years or have registered suspicious transactions since demonetisation

Allahbad University spends all its money fighting 300 legal battles

A month after the Ministry of Human Resource Development requested for a Visitor inquiry against Allahbad University Vice Chancellor Professor Ratanlal Hanglu, an audit report of the university has found that it has been fighting as many as 300 court cases and all the funds go into fighting legal battles rather than focusing on academic development.The committee appointed by University Grants Commission (UGC) was one of the committees conducting audits of ten central universities across the country. The audit team that visited the university between November 13-15 has recently submitted its report to the ministry. In the report, the committee has mentioned that the university administration is “wasting all its time, energy and funds in fighting the numerous court battles that have arisen as a result of the internal politics in the university”.”There is a group of retired teachers in the university, which has been conspiring against the Vice Chancellor and his work is getting affected because of it. There are many cases of corruption and financial irregularities levelled against the VC,” the committee in its report said.Because of the current situation, the university has been facing serious lack of funds and everything from academic development to salaries of employees is getting affected due to this. There is no co-ordination between the registrar and finance officer of the university and the university has no plans for its future, the committee said.The committee also said that law and order situation in the campus is very bad, in fact “it cannot be worse in any other university campus”, it said in its report.

Jignesh Mevani denied permission for Vadaj victory rally

Jignesh Mevani, now elected to state legislative assembly from Vadgam and Dalit agitation leader, was denied permission for the victory rally that was scheduled in Vadaj on Thursday.Ahmedabad police decided to crack whip after Mevani held a massive protest outside Gomtipur police station on Wednesday night alleging that liquor dens were still rampant in the area and even threatened to launch an agitation if the dens were not shut within 24 hours.During the protest, Mevani had alleged that the local police personnel were also involved in the liquor racket and even threatened to strip the cops of their uniform. The protest lasted until late night and was dispersed after he had a word with the senior police officers.Mevani held a roadshow after the locals apprised him of the illicit liquor being sold despite a statewide ban. He later converted the show into an impromptu protest where he made serious allegations against the government and police department in general.The cops then decided to cancel permission for Mevani’s rally on Thursday. Mevani then met the city police commissioner A K Singh.”We had a meeting with Mevani regarding the Gomtipur incident. He seemed apologetic during the meeting. His utterances were utmost disrespectful towards the policemen, I and the department and they were made in public. We will not tolerate such language and may seek action against him,” Singh said.A detailed report will be sent to the Vidhan Sabha Speaker regarding the disrespectful speech by Mevani, he said.When asked about the allegations made by Mevani, Singh said, “We don’t claim we have shut down all the liquor dens in the city, but we have raided scores of them. This is part of our routine activities and we make arrests too.”

Every month, 150 male passengers barge into women Metro coaches

Every month, more than 150 male passengers, who had barged into the women’s coach of the Delhi Metro, were pulled out and fined by ‘Kaali’ – a special CISF women commando group. Senior officials said that the numbers are a result of special drives undertaken to keep away the nuisance created by men in women coaches.According to a data, in all the incidents, 1,941 men were caught in 2017 for violating women’s safety norms in Metro that zeroes down to more than 160 a month.”Kaali is a women commando group that specialises in unarmed combat. They are trained in multi-martial arts and can easily take down their opponent in closed spaces like a Metro. When it was noticed that the menace of men travelling in women coaches is increasing, Kaali was given the job to keep an eye on such men, pull them out of the coaches and slap an applicable fine on them through the station controllers,” said Hemendra Singh, AIG and PRO, CISF.Throughout 2017, more than 150 such special drives were undertaken by Kaali, in which they caught 1,941 men, travelling in the women’s coaches. These women work in teams and even board Metro trains in civil dresses to keep watch on miscreants.”It has been noticed that often during late hours, seeing women coaches not very crowded, men board these coaches, to which women object, leading to altercations. Kaali often makes surprise visits to women coaches. They often deal with those creating brawl after drinking or with the men who try to flout norms. When required, the Delhi Metro Rail Police is also roped in for legal action,” Singh said, adding that this is a step to ensure the safety of women in Metro.BIG NUMBERSAccording to a data, in all the incidents, 1,941 men were caught in 2017 for violating women’s safety norms in Metro that zeroes down to more than 160 a month.

28 Air India pilots skipped alcohol test in 2017, govt informs Parliament

Twenty eight pilots and nine cabin crew of Air India skipped the mandatory alcohol test this year, the Centre informed parliament today.As part of the safety regulations of Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA), all pilots and cabin crew must undergo the breath analyser (BA) test, before and after flights.”As on 21.12.2017, 28 pilots and 9 cabin crew have skipped the BA test,” Minister of State for Civil Aviation Jayant Sinha said in response to a question in Lok Sabha.He said the license of these pilots and cabin crew were suspended for three months.Any crew member, who tests positive in the pre-flight medical check or refuses to take a breath analyser test, is taken off flying duty for at least four weeks, and the airline is required to initiate disciplinary proceedings, according to civil aviation rules.Air India was also involved in a controversy earlier this year when the DGCA warned that more than 500 of its pilots and crew could be grounded for skipping the alcohol test.Then Air India CMD Rajiv Bansal had written to the DGCA, requesting it to take a lenient view as he said that the airline management had misinterpreted the rules and had taken corrective measures.

Finance Minister Arun Jaitley introduces bill to recover bad loans

Finance Minister Arun Jaitley on Thursday introduced a bill in the Lok Sabha to bar wilful defaulters as well as those with NPA accounts from bidding in auctions to recover bad loans through insolvency proceedings.The Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code (Amendment) Bill, 2017 seeks to replace an ordinance which was promulgated in November to prevent unscrupulous persons from misusing or vitiating the provisions of the IBC.The Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code (IBC) was enacted last year to consolidate and amend laws relating to reorganisation and insolvency resolution of corporate persons, partnership firms and individuals in a time-bound manner.Also readZero loss theory was disproved in 2012 itself: Arun JaitleyAccording to the statement of objects and reasons of the bill introduced by Jaitley, the amendment “provides clarity as to the persons who can submit resolution plan in response to an invitation made by the resolution professional”.The amendment bill also makes certain persons ineligible for being a resolution applicant.Also readFirst time in history, govt to overtake disinvestment target, says Arun Jaitley The ineligible persons or entities will include, undischarged insolvent, willful defaulter, and those whose accounts have been classified as non-performing asset.These persons, however, can become “eligible to submit a resolution plan” if they clear all overdue amounts with interest and other charges relating to NPA accounts.The amendment to the IBC has been brought to address concerns that “persons who, with their misconduct contributed to defaults of companies or otherwise undesirable, may misuse this situation due to lack of prohibition or restrictions to participate in the resolution or liquidation process, and gain or regain control of corporate debtor”.Moreover, this may undermine the process laid down in the IBC as “unscrupulous person would be seen to be rewarded at the expense of creditors”.

Shooting time: State may throw open monuments to film makers

In order to encourage movie producers to come and shoot in the state, the government may allow film shooting free of charge in the monuments of the state.Though no decision is taken on this yet, the government has made a committee of various officials of department of archaeology and museums to review the rates of shooting in monuments and if found feasible the decision regarding this may be taken.Sources informed that the committee will be reviewing the current rates as they have not been revised since long. Based on the report of the committee which will be received in a week’s time. A final decision will be taken on whether making movie shooting at monuments can be made free.The present review may also be seen as a step to keep the movie producers happy and encouraged to shoot in Rajasthan.While it is being claimed that Padmavati issue has nothing to do with the present review, but the timing of making a review of shooting rates at monuments is being taken in some quarters as an indication of pacifying the movie producers. Moreover, the committee will also decide the rate for pre wedding shootings at monuments.Currently there is no pre decided rate for such thing and every time a proposal of pre wedding shoot at monument comes, rate is decided based on case to case, informed the sources. The basic idea is to increase the number of movie makers shooting at monuments.It may be recalled that several parts of controversial movie Padmavati were shot in Jaipur. Director Sanjay Bhansali faced opposition and was even roughed up which created controversy. Apart from Padmavati, movies like Salman Khan starrer Veer, Aishwarya Rai’s Jodha Akbar etc in recent years have been shot in Amber and other monuments of Jaipur and Rajasthan.Pre wedding shootsThe timing of making a review of shooting rates at monuments is being taken in some quarters as an indication of pacifying the movie producers.The committee will also decide the rate for pre wedding shootings at monuments. Currently there is no pre decided rate for such thing and every time a proposal of pre wedding shoot at monument comes, rate is decided based on case to case.

The applicants include Major Charu Sharma and Major Neha Bhatnagar.During the hearing of the applications on Friday, the Supreme Court warned the Centre that it would not grant any more adjournments in a matter where Indian Army officers are seeking the effective grant of reckonable Commissioned Service benefits, particularly SSCOs commissioned under the Women Special Entry Scheme (WSES).The bench led by Chief Justice of India Dipak Misra commented on the over one year delay, and said the matter would be heard after two weeks and no further delay will be tolerated thereafter.The case of over 100 Army officers — serving and retired — for grant of parity with officers of permanent commission — in accordance with the report of Defence Ministry’s Committee of Experts authored by former Defence Secretary AV Singh, is pending before the top court.The report, which proposed time-bound promotions for the ranks of Capt, Major, and Lt Col in two, six, and thirteen years, respectively, was accepted by the Centre.However, the applicants have accused the establishment of gender-based discrimination.Leading the all-women’s charge, advocate Aishwarya Bhatti said that mere lip service is not enough, the government needs to implement the reforms if it is serious about women empowerment.They have said that even though the Centre has already issued orders under the Army Act extending the benefit of promotions as applicable to Permanent Commissioned Officers to all SSCOs (Men and Women), the reason given by the Army HQ for non-grant of the statutory benefit “reflects nothing but an argument which is an epitome of banality”.The applicants have also pointed out that the Navy and the Air Force have already institutionalised these promotional avenues to all without any cut-off stipulation or specious reason of “reckonable commissioned service”.
