Central medical units not following MCI norms

In its recently revised guidelines, the Medical Council of India (MCI) has enhanced the upper age limit for appointment to senior residentship from 33 to 40 years. Some doctors have, however, pointed out that some Central and autonomous medical institutions have still not implemented these guidelines.In a letter written to the Health Minister on December 25, 2017, the Federation of Resident Doctors’ Association (FORDA), an umbrella body of resident doctors, pointed out that the guidelines have been implemented in Delhi government institutions but the not in Institutions such as AIIMS and PGI, Chandigarh.”Implementation of the 40 year age criteria for senior residents will help in filling up the posts lying vacant in our medical institutions. In addition to this, various state governments have rural service bonds after MBBS and some have service bonds after post-graduation as well. Many doctors are well above the age of 33 years when they complete the compulsory posting. Bringing uniformity in age criteria for SRs will help in solving the problem of shortage of doctors in the country,” stated the letter signed by FORDA president Dr Vivek Chouksey.

Not for granted! More checks for rural funds

The Central government will no longer give direct funds to higher education institutions under the Unnat Bharat Abhiyan (UAB), a plan meant to connect them to villages and find solutions to rural India problems. Institutions like IITs and NITs will now have to fight for funds by coming up with implementable technology to address issues like sanitation, water and electricity.The Union Ministry of Human Resource Development (HRD) issued a circular on December 18 to all education institutions, asking them to manage the scheme with their own funds and with the help of the local administration.UAB is Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s idea, launched by the NDA government in 2014 as a flagship programme of the HRD Ministry. The scheme is meant to address the twin objectives of transformative rural development and introduction of greater social relevance in the higher education sector.The policy under UAB has been changed after the government realised that institutions, which are the main centres for technological research, were not utilising funds properly for working with villages.”We found that many institutions, including IITs, were not serious about UAB, so we have decided to stop giving funds to them at the initial level.We don’t want them to use the money for their excursions to villages,” a senior HRD Ministry official said.”We want only those institutions that are seriously interested in working for the rural sector to register for the programme. This will weed out all non-serious participants,” he said.”The entire financial assistance for funding solutions would flow from district authorities, with UBA funding a small portion of the financial gap. UBA component of the resources for customising or installing an existing technology would be provided through challenge method,” the circular said.”There shall be an open call to all higher education institutions to participate, rather than the adoption of pick and chose method. Selection of institutions shall be based on challenge method, according to the fulfilment of criteria like adequacy of qualified faculty, campus, facilities and academic merit, adequacy in number of students, work done in rural areas by institution, proven aptitude of faculty for rural development etc.”

A wedding that exhibits innovations, spreads awareness

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>In an attempt to make a difference and boost innovation, an Amdavadi has got his wedding card printed that mentions sustainable practises of Honey Bee Network, which is a crucible of innovators, farmers, scholars and academicians documenting traditional knowledge and innovation.Chetan Patel who works with Society for Research and Initiatives for Sustainable Technologies and Institutions (SRISTI), a part of Honey Bee Network, has not only made a difference with his wedding card but also exhibited 30 innovations during his marriage ceremony on Saturday.”Wedding cards have a larger community reach, which is why I thought to use it as a means to spread awareness,” Patel said.Commenting on his initiative, professor Anil Gupta, founder of SRISTI said, “This has happened for the first time in 30 years that someone has even thought of this kind of a blend of cultural and social ways. While the card included numerous practices of innovations by children and farmers, he also gave an opportunity to exhibitors to display their innovations at his marriage. Chetan is the man who organises Shodh Yatra every year. Hence, it is overwhelming to even imagine what he has foreseen through this initiative.”He remarked, “This is a beautiful way of sharing information about what he has learnt with us by including these in this sacred ritual. Instead of a pamphlet, spreading awareness in such a manner is significant.”On exhibition, professor Gupta said, “The exhibition had a farmer from Haryana who had processed 200 kg fruits to make juice for 3,500 guests. He gave the remaining fruits to villagers to make ice cream out of them. We at SRISTI would be happy to help and support if any marriages or ceremonies are planned in an innovation fair where people can have a corner of creativity for their guests. Guests have to wait for long during such ceremonies and they can visit the creative corner.”

In blow to Rajasthan, SC stays, caps Gujjar quota

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>In a setback for the Vasundhara Raje government, the Supreme Court (SC) on Wednesday stayed Rajasthan’s move to grant reservation benefits to Gujjars. The top court further directed the state to cap reservations to Gujjars up to 50 per cent until the High Court finally decides the issue.The order came on the heels of an appeal filed by the Rajasthan government challenging a November 9 High Court (HC) order which restrained the state from implementing a bill that provided five per cent quota to five OBCs (Other Backward Classes) and six sub-castes, including Gujjars, raising the reservation in the state to 54 per cent.The order, pronounced by a bench headed by the Chief Justice of India Dipak Misra, comes months ahead of next year’s Rajasthan Assembly polls.”…taking into consideration the facts and circumstances of the case and various decisions of this court, we are inclined to restrain the state government from taking any action or decision on the administrative side or in any manner conferring the benefit of reservation, which will have the result of crossing the total reservation beyond 50 per cent,” the SC said. During the course of hearing, state government said that it has power to pass such a bill and the court cannot interfere with the legislative process. Agreeing with this reasoning, the apex court bench, that also comprised Justices AM Khanwilkar and DY Chandrachud, proceeded to partially set aside the HC order.Earlier this month, Rajasthan High court had said that since the SC had already asked the state government to maintain status quo after the 2015 Gujjar reservation Bill was struck down by Rajasthan High Court, “it will not be appropriate to allow the state government to do anything contrary to the Supreme Court’s order and they are restrained from acting upon the Bill.”The Rajasthan Backward Classes (Reservation of Seats in Educational Institutions in the State and of Appointment and Posts in Services under the State) Bill, 2017, which was passed on October 26 this year, sought to increase OBC quota from 21 per cent to 26 per cent, and create a separate category of ‘More Backward Classes’ for Banjara, Gadiya Lohar, Gujjar, Raika and Gadariya castes, giving them a five per cent reservation.Ganga Sahay Sharma, the petitioner who had approached the Rajasthan HC against the bill, said the state government introduced reservation bills for Gujjars in 2008 and in 2015; both were quashed by the High Court, mainly because they exceeded the 50 per cent reservation limit set by the apex court.

During the course of hearing state Government said that Government has power to pass such a bill and Court cannot interfere with the legislative process. Petitioner who challenged the bill in HC said that Rajasthan government had violated Supreme court order of maintaining status quo.On last Thusday, Rajasthan High court said since the Supreme Court had already asked the state government to maintain status quo after the 2015 Gujjar reservation Bill was struck down by Rajasthan High Court, “it will not be appropriate to allow the state government to do anything contrary to the Supreme Court’s order and they are restrained from acting upon the Bill.” The Rajasthan Backward Classes (Reservation of Seats in Educational Institutions in the State and of Appointment and Posts in Services under the State) Bill, 2017, which was passed on October 26 this year, sought to increase OBC quota from 21 per cent to 26 per cent, and create a separate category of ‘More Backward Classes’ for Banjara, Gadiya Lohar, Gujjar, Raika and Gadariya castes, giving them a five per cent reservation.Ganga Sahay Sharma, the petitioner who had approached the Rajasthan HC against the Bill, said the state government introduced reservation Bills for Gujjars in 2008 and in 2015; both were quashed by the high court, mainly because they exceeded the 50 per cent reservation limit set by the apex court.

MU fails at UGC plagiarism guidelines

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>Even as the University Grants Commission (UGC) aims to make its rules against plagiarism more stringent, the University of Mumbai is yet to follow some of the provisions made under the earlier guidelines set by UGC.More than three years after the university’s Management Council approved the setting up of a special mechanism to detect plagiarism including a software to scan research papers and theses, the plan seems to have gone into cold storage. The university has still not adhered to some of the minimum standard guidelines set for awarding MPhil and PhD degrees.In a public notice dated September 1, the UGC released a draft of the Promotion of Academic Integrity and Prevention of Plagiarism in Higher Education Institutions Regulations, 2017.As per the draft guidelines, each university should have a Plagiarism Disciplinary Authority (PDA) to take action against students or staff members who are found submitting plagiarised assignments or academic work. However, in the absence of a basic infrastructure, the university would find it difficult to implement the new guidelines.

Now, SRISTI to organise Shodh Yatra 4 times a year

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>From 2018 onwards, Shodh Yatra, a journey for the search of knowledge, creativity and innovations at the grassroots organised by Society for Research and Initiatives for Sustainable Technologies and Institutions (SRISTI), will be held four times a year.It is an attempt to reach out to the remotest parts of the country with a firm belief that the hardships and challenges of natural surroundings are prime motivators of creativity and innovations. Rameshbhai Patel, secretary, SRISTI said, “Until now, it was conducted twice a year in summer and winter. Now, Shodh Yatra will be conducted four times.”Professor Anil Gupta, SRISTI founder, spoke to DNA from a village in Uttarakhand, where he is accompanied by 30 students of the IIMA including five foreign exchange students as part of the Shodh Yatra.”We are in Bharwa Katal village in Dhanaulti exploring and meeting the villagers and understanding their problems. We have decided to hold such yatras frequently as more number of foreign exchange and doctoral students want to be a part of the yatra,” he said.Professor Gupta said, “One of our first visits was to a school where we realised that there was only one girl in class 9 which means girl students drop out after class 8.”Shodh Yatra was started in 1998, out of a meeting organised at Titodi in Junagadh district of Gujarat. The farmers present there felt it was important and necessary to encourage organic farming. Moreover, there were many people from nearby villages who had found the solutions of their own problems through their inborn ability and presence of mind.

Rajiv Gandhi left indelible mark through his contributions:

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>Senior Congress leader Randeep Singh Surjewala today said former prime minister Rajiv Gandhi left an indelible impression on the lives of people through his contributions. Addressing a public meeting here after paying tributes to Rajiv Gandhi on his birth anniversary, he said the former prime minister played a pivotal role in bringing Information Technology revolution in the country, the fruits of which were being reaped by the people today. Hitting out at the BJP government at the Centre, Surjewala, who is a Congress MLA from Kaithal, said, “After the failure of ‘Achhe Din Jumla’, the ‘New India’ is the latest addition to ‘political Jumla’ of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.” “Due to the wrong policies of the BJP government, 35 farmers are forced to commit suicide every day. The youth are disappointed and the traders are facing recession,” he alleged. Surjewala claimed, “The farmers are not getting due prices for Basmati rice, wheat, maize, cotton, potato and sunflower.” He reminded the people at the gathering that when Rajiv Gandhi had visualised and implemented IT revolution, the then opposition leaders had said that it would lead to loss of jobs, but now the youths of the country are earning a name and employment at global level through this. Surejwala said the former prime minister had reduced the voting age from 21 to 18 and gave constitutional provision to Panchayati Raj Institutions.(This article has not been edited by DNA’s editorial team and is auto-generated from an agency feed.)

A 11-member Admission and Fee Regulatory Committee, chaired by a retired judge of the supreme court, would be formed to determine fee and admission process. The bill provides that any person aggrieved by an order of the Committee could appeal before the high court within 30 days from the date of such orders.

Cabinet approves scrapping of no-detention policy till Class 8

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>The Union Cabinet on Wednesday approved the scrapping of the no-detention policy in schools till Class 8.It also gave its nod to the Human Resource Development Ministry’s plan of creating 20 world-class institutions in the country. An enabling provision will be made in the Right of Children for Free and Compulsory Education Amendment Bill which will allow states to detain students in class 5 and class 8 if they fail in the year-end exam. However, the students will have to be given a second chance to improve via an examination before they are detained.The bill will now be placed in Parliament for approval.Under the present provision of RTE Act, students are promoted automatically to higher classes till class 8. This is one of the key components of the RTE Act which came into force on April 1, 2010. The Union Cabinet, which had deferred its decision in June, about creation of 20 world-class institutions in the country, also approved it today. The University Grants Commission (UGC) had in February passed a new set of regulations to set up 10 world-class institutions in the public sector and as many in the private sector.Of the 20 universities, first proposed in this year’s budget, the 10 state-supported institutions are expected to receive public funding of up to Rs 500 crore each.

Existing universities don’t have such freedom and are guided by the detailed UGC rules.

IITs take initiative to reduce suicide among students

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>Twelve students have committed suicide and some attempted at suicide across various Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs) in the country in last three years.5 such cases were reported in 2015, 4 cases in 2014, and 3 in 2016. This information was revealed by minister of state, human resource development, Mahendra Nath Pandey, in response to a written question in Parliament on Thursday.According to the ministry, the reasons vary from academic stress to domestic and personal reasons. The institutions themselves, however realise that the problem is serious. Hence, the institutions have started taking various initiatives to make the students feel comfortable, specially freshers and those who have a problem with the medium of learning.”IITs have been taking various steps such as peer assisted learning, special languages classes for students who need help with studies, in order to ease the academic stress. In addition to this, IITs also conduct workshops/ seminars on wellness, regular sessions on Yoga, induction programmes, extracurricular activities, including sports and cultural activities, to create a friendly environment for students,” the minister added.IIT Delhi, which is one of the oldest IITs in the country and gets students from various parts of the country, is going to pay special attention to its first year students from this year. From their orientation session to extra-curricular activities, the institute is taking some new initiatives.”We have appointed senior students as guides for first year students. These students will go around at hostels in the night after 8 p.m. to help students with studies. Since the class size in IITs is big, its is difficult to give special attention to students, such efforts will help. This will also keep the stress off students,” a professor at IIT Delhi said.IIT Ropar, which is one of the new age IITs is also going to organise a two-week induction programme for freshers to introduce them to the institute, departments, facilities and life on campus. Other than these, one of the most important reasons for this special extended induction programme is to get the students engaged in extra-curricular activities like sports, yoga and to enhance their social & team skills.

Scrap minority commission, minority affairs ministry: VHP

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>The Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) today demanded scrapping of the National Commission for Minorities (NCM) and the minority affairs ministry, saying both the institutions give credence to a “separatist mindset”. The VHP alleged that with the help of the NCM, jihadi groups and missionaries gathered sympathy and carried out “anti-Hindu and anti-national activities”. The VHP, in its central governing council meeting in Vadtal in Gujarat, passed a resolution demanding immediate scrapping of both the commission and the ministry, it said in a statement. It suggested that the there was no need for a commission for the minorities as the National Human Rights Commission was more than enough to take care of the rights of all citizens of the country.(This article has not been edited by DNA’s editorial team and is auto-generated from an agency feed.)

MFIs suffer note ban blues; stressed loans balloon to 14%

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>The demonetisation move has severely affected microlenders, with their stressed assets ratio shooting up to 14.1 per cent as of March 31, 2017. The portfolio at risk, measured by loans which are unpaid for over 30 days, increased to 14.1 per cent from 0.40 per cent in the year ago period, the Microfinance Institutions Network, an industry body that acts as a self regulatory organisation, said in a statement. “This abnormal increase in PAR is attributed to lower recoveries post demonetisation on November 9, 2016 which resulted in shortage of cash and related adverse impact on income and livelihoods of low income households,” it said. The PAR90 ratio, of assets which are unpaid for over 90 days, grew to 8.18 per cent from the year-ago’s 0.2 per cent.

Police to be sensitised on doctors protection Act: Minister

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>The police in Maharashtra will be sensitised on invoking a special law meant to protect doctors and deal with cases of attack on them, a Minister said today. Doctors have complained the police does not book the accused in such cases under the Maharashtra Medicare Service Persons and Medicare Service Institutions (Prevention of Violence and Damage of Property) Act, 2010. “The government has taken the issue of attacks on doctors very seriously. Wherever there are police outposts, the government has provided additional personnel to deal with such cases,” Minister of State for Home Ranjit Patil said. As per the Act, an attack on a doctor attracts jail term of up to three years and a fine of Rs 50,000. “There is already a law in place which provides for three-year imprisonment for anyone attacking a doctor. But, this law is often not applied because police officials are unaware about it and also due to pressure on them from relatives of patients,” said Sagar Mundada, Indian Medical Association Youth Wing Chairman, Maharashtra. According to him, there have been around 55 cases of attacks on doctors in the last 3 years. Late last month, residents doctors in the state went on a strike to protest a spate of attacks on their colleagues by relatives of patients. The strike was called off after the government assured them of security at their workplaces. “Doctors are routinely held to ransom by relatives of patients,” said Ramen Goel, director of bariatric surgery at Wockhardt Hospitals. Vijay D’Silva of Mumbai’s Asian Heart said doctors cannot work in an environment where they feel constant threat to their lives. “Laws meant for their protection should be implemented effectively.” Goel said if violence against doctors continues, they might stop accepting complicated medical cases. “The government is in the process of providing 1100- 1200 additional police personnel for deployment in OPDs and casualty departments (of state-run hospitals),” he added. Patil said in case of private hospitals, the Quick Response Teams have been notified to immediately reach a place where an assault has occurred and take necessary action. The minister said the police will be sensitised about the 2010 Act and asked to seriously deal with cases of assault on medical professionals.(This article has not been edited by DNA’s editorial team and is auto-generated from an agency feed.)
