Delhi Nursery admissions: Govt tightens grip over pvt schools flouting norms

Tightening the noose around the private schools violating norms by setting abolished criteria for the nursery admissions, the Delhi government’s Directorate of Education (DoE) has started examining the regulations set by such schools.The admission process in the entry-level classes at 1,700 private unaided recognised Delhi schools kicked off on Wednesday. While most of the schools are giving heavy weightage to the ‘neighborhood’ criteria — children residing within the 0-3 km radius, arbitrary regulations issued by several schools are giving nightmares to parents seeking seats for their wards.”We have been receiving complaints against several private schools. We have already started examining the criteria set by these schools and are in the process of sending showcause notices to them,” said Atishi Marlena, Advisor to Education Minister Manish Sisodia.In blatant violation of the DoE guidelines, while some schools, including Mahavir Senior Model School on GT-Karnal Road, are granting extra points to “vegetarian”, “non-smoker” and “teetotaler” parents, some like the Apeejay School in Sheikh Sarai are preferring children/grandchildren of former school promoters or office bearers.Some schools, including St Michael’s Junior School in Prasad Nagar and Vidya Bal Bhawan School in Shakarpur are even violating the Right to Education (RTE) Act guidelines by calling parents and their wards for”interaction”. In another violation of the DoE norms, Abhinav Public School in Pitampura and Sachdeva Public School in Rohini have asked parents to give details of their monthly income, educational and professional qualification in the forms.”Some schools have issued absurd admission criteria which are nowhere mentioned in the DoE’s circular issued on December 19. DoE’s intervention only can stop them from following these unreasonable criteria,” said Ritika Singh, a parent seeking admission for her 3-year-old daughter.Meanwhile, experts have welcomed the government’s decision to intervene.”Schools are not only violating the DoE’s norms but also the RTE guidelines. It is good that the DoE has started looking into the matter,” said Sumit Vohra, founder of www.admissionsnursery.com.VIOLATIONIn blatant violation of the DoE guidelines, some schools, including Mahavir Senior Model School on GT-Karnal Road, are granting extra points to “vegetarian”, “non-smoker” and “teetotaler” parents.

The proposal was made after considering local sentiments and discussions with the residents of Mira Road and Bhayandar. There is nothing else to read into it.”A MMRDA official said, “We proposed names of nine Metro stations according to the locality but the MBMC corporators had a few demands. Hence we asked for their suggestions.”UPS Madan, Metropolitan Commissioner, told DNA, “When we get suggestions, we forward them to the state government (urban development department) which takes the final decision.”Earlier this year, Shiv Sena Minister Ravindra Waikar had demanded that the proposed Metro station at Jogeshwari-Vikhroli Link Road (JVLR) be named Balasaheb Thackeray Trauma Centre.The Mira Road-Bhayandar Metro corridor, also known as Metro-10, is an extension of two Metro corridors planned on Link Road and Western Express Highway, connecting Dahisar and Andheri.Rohidas Patil, BJP corporator, MBMC, said, “It is a purely local demand taking into consideration the sentiments of the local citizens.”WHAT’S IN A NAME?Route: Dahisar Check Naka to Mira Road-BhayandarLength: 9 kmEstimated cost: Rs 3,600 croreStation name by MMRDA: Jankar FactoryProposed by MBMC: Chatrapati Shivaji MaharajStation name by MMRDA: Sai Baba NagarProposed by MBMC: Sardar Vallabhbhai PatelStation name by MMRDA: Deepak HospitalProposed by MBMC: Nanasaheb DharmadhikariStation name by MMRDA: Palika Krida SankulProposed by MBMC: Maharana PratapStation name by MMRDA: Shubhash Chandra Bose GardenProposed by MBMC: Sadanad MaharajStation name by MMRDA: Bhayandar (West)Proposed by MBMC: Mahavir SwamiStation name by MMRDA: Amar PalaceProposed by MBMC: Mira VillageStation name by MMRDA: Pandurang WadiProposed by MBMC: Penkarpada

86% seats of B Planning course in Guj go vacant

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>The Bachelor of Planning (B Planning) course, offered by five institutes across the state, has failed to evoke much response from students. As per fresh details emerging from the latest development at Admissions Committee for Professional Courses (ACPC), of the 260 B Planning seats offered by various institutes across Gujarat, 220 are to be filled through ACPC and of those 220, only 34 have been filled so far. While the response from the entire state looks gloomy, Nirma University has emerged to be the most preferred institute.The University Grants Commission (UGC) had last year asked universities and colleges across the country to start a course on urban planning after PM Narendra Modi unveiled the roadmap to develop 500 cities under the Smart Cities Mission project.Confirming the same, member secretary of ACPC GP Vadodaria said, “Like last year, very few have opted for the course this year and in fact, the numbers have dipped even further.”When DNA asked him for the reason behind the lack of interest in students, Vadodaria said, “This is a specialised area and not a renowned one. Of the 34 seats, 32 have been filled at Nirma because of the brand and location. One seat each has been filled at Anant Institute of Architecture and Bhagwan Mahavir College of Architecture.”This year, 50% of admissions are being done by ACPC, whereas the remaining 50% (open for all India) are being conducted by the institutes. Interestingly, in 2013, CEPT had received about 800 applications for 40 seats.

Mohan Bhagwat seeks ban on cow slaughter

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>Wading into the cow slaughter debate, Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) chief Mohan Bhagwat on Sunday advocated a countrywide law banning cow slaughter.The leader of the RSS, the BJP’s ideological mentor, said at the same time that any violence perpetrated in the name of cow protection could hurt the cause. “There should be no violence during cow protection. Cow vigilante groups should keep in mind that no sentiments are hurt in the process, or questions will be raised on the methods of cow protection,” he said while speaking at a function here on Mahavir Jayanti.His remarks come a week after a dairy farm owner, Pehlu Khan, was killed in Alwar in Rajasthan over allegations that he was transporting cows. The Supreme Court recently asked six states, five of which have BJP governments and one ruled by the Congress, to respond to a PIL seeking a ban on cow vigilante groups.Bhagwat’s comments against violence in the name of cow protection are in line with Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s criticism last year of “self-appointed gau rakshaks” who indulged in “anti-social activities” at night.Of the 29 states, 24 have various regulations on cow slaughter or sale of cows. BJP leaders in Kerala and the NorthEast have expressed reservations about a ban.

JD (U) condemns Mohan Bhagwat’s remark on cow protection

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –> Strongly condemning Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) chief Mohan Bhagwat?s remark that violence in the name of cow protection defames his organisation, the Janata Dal (United) on Monday said that those who follow the party?s ideology are involving in acts of violence. ?Those who have created this controversy should stop these things. That party is in power. Those who follow the party?s ideology are doing this. These kinds of things do not last long. Hatred is a temporary phase,? JD (U) leader Ali Anwar told ANI. Resonating similar views, another JD (U) leader K.C. Tyagi alleged that the RSS chief?s organisation has been indulging in killing humans under the garb of cow slaughter. ?There is absolute lawlessness. Unsocial elements are doing what they feel like by taking the law in their hands. So Bhagwat ji must address them as well,? he added. Bhagwat has condemned the violence by the cow protection groups, saying it ?defames? the cause. His remarks at an event to observe the birth anniversary of Lord Mahavir came against the backdrop of the lynching of a Muslim man by cow vigilantes in Alwar in BJP-ruled Rajasthan that sparked protests from opposition parties and put the saffron party on the defensive. “Nothing should be done while protecting cows that hurts the belief of some people. Nothing should be done that is violent. It only defames the efforts of cow protectors… The work of cow conservation should be carried out while obeying laws and the Constitution,” Bhagwat added.(This article has not been edited by DNA’s editorial team and is auto-generated from an agency feed.)

BJP MLA wants slaughter houses closed for Mahavir Jayanti

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>BJP MLA Mangal Prabhat Lodha and some representatives of the Jain community today demanded here that slaughter houses in Maharashtra should remain closed tomorrow on account of Mahavir Jayanti. The Bombay High Court recently set aside an old government directive to municipal bodies to ban meat sale on Mahavir Jayanti. Lodha, accompanied by representatives of Jain International Organisation, Jain Shakti Foundation, Vardhaman Pariwar, Ahimsa Sangh and some other outfits, held a press conference here today. “The state government is planning to approach Supreme Court after Bombay High Court allowed slaughter houses to remain open, but they would remain open on Sunday (tomorrow) when Jains will be celebrating Mahavir Jayanti. We are requesting that these shops be closed for one day, and we hope the state will take some decision,” Lodha said. “We also want to make an appeal to the owners of slaughter houses to voluntarily close their shops on Sunday,” he said, as the state would find it difficult to move the apex court against the HC order on weekend. Maharashtra has the tradition of abattoirs remaining closed on Mahavir Jayanti, the BJP MLA said.(This article has not been edited by DNA’s editorial team and is auto-generated from an agency feed.)

Goa forest dept hunting for a bison which killed farmer

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>Goa forest department is relying on technology as well as traditional methods to trace a bison which allegedly gored a farmer to death in the area lying between Bondla and Bhagwan Mahavir wildlife sanctuaries. Vigilance cameras have been set up across the forest around Shivdem village in Dharbandora tehsil, South Goa. A `gaur’ (Indian bison) reportedly killed Yeno Solienkar (51), a farmer from the village, on March 31. “Search is going on round-the-clock in and around Shivdem village. We tried tracing bison movement in the area through cameras but could not find any,” a senior official said. Forest officials are also using an elephant from Bondla sanctuary to comb the area. This is the first time the forest department is using `elephant-mounted human surveillance’ in such an operation. Gaur is Goa’s state animal and is also protected under the Wildlife Protection Act. Panic spread in Shivdem village after Solienkar was found dead, apparently gored by bison. However, round-the-clock monitoring by forest officials hasn’t led to spotting of a single bison in the area. “Usually bison move in a herd but this one is alone. After spotting it, if it is found to be wounded, we will tranquilise it and treat it,” the official said.(This article has not been edited by DNA’s editorial team and is auto-generated from an agency feed.)

Delhi Police rescues women who locked themselves up in room

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>Police today rescued a mother-daughter duo who had allegedly locked themselves up at their house in southwest Delhi’s Mahavir Enclave area. They are apparently suffering from depression. After a neighbour made a PCR call informing police that Kalavati (42) and Deepa (20) had locked themselves up in a first-floor room of their house, they were rescued and admitted to a hospital, said a senior police officer. Police are questioning the woman’s father-in-law who had been staying with them in the house, he said. He said that when police reached the spot, they found that the door of their room was open. The women were malnourished and staying in an unhygienic condition, he added. They even refused to go to the hospital with police. The duo are apparently suffering from a mental disorder and hallucinations, he said. Police said Kalavati’s father-in-law, Mahaveer Mishra, lived in the adjacent room and gave them food once a day whenever they asked for it. Mishra told police that his wife passed away in 2000 and his two sons were killed in a road accident four years ago. He claimed that Kalavati and Deepa had locked themselves up in the room since then. He used to work as a linesman with MTNL and the family was surviving on Mishra’s meagre pension, he claimed. Mishra said the women often claimed they spoke to his sons in the room and survived days without food. He said a local doctor was treating them as he did not have enough savings to admit them to a hospital.(This article has not been edited by DNA’s editorial team and is auto-generated from an agency feed.)

Congress: Rahul Gandhi’s use of party symbol was not objectionable

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>Senior Congress leader PL Punia on Saturday, expressing his views on Bharatiya Janata Party’s (BJP) complaint against Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi for hurting religious sentiments, said that Rahul Gandhi’s use of the Congress symbol was not offensive in any manner as it was not against any religion. There is nothing objectionable to it, they said.”What Rahul Gandhi said regarding the Congress symbol was not offensive. He didn’t ask for votes on the basis of any religion. He talked about all religions. I think everybody should imitate that. There are many people who talk against one single religion, which should be seen as derogatory. He (Rahul Gandhi) showed respect to each and every religion,” said Punia.He added that the BJP has not been able to live up to its promises made during the 2014 election.The BJP on Friday had filed a complaint with the poll panel against Rahul for hurting religious sentiments, by co-relating the hand symbol of the Congress with religious gods such as Lord Shiva, Guru Nanak, Buddha, Islam and Mahavir.In the complaint to the Chief Electoral Officer, the BJP alleged that Rahul, during a Jan Vedna Sammelan convention, held in Delhi, violated the provisions of Representation of Peoples Act, 1951, Model Code of Conduct and guidelines issued by the Supreme Court.
