As per the plan, all the ATMs should have been ready by yesterday.

These machines needed to be re-calibrated after the government on 8 November announced the scrapping of old 500 and 1,000 rupee notes in a bid to crack down on black money, and introduced of new 500 and 2,000 rupee notes of different size and high security features.

“A working group, formed under a RBI headed task force, was given a deadline to recalibrate all the ATMs by 30 November. About 90 percent, which is around 1.80 lakh ATMs, have been re-calibrated so far to dispense new Rs 500 and Rs 2,000 notes,” ATM manufacturer NCR Corporation’s managing director, (India & South Asia) Navroze Dastur told PTI.

Following the announcement to scrap old high currency notes, a task force was set up on 14 November under the chairmanship of Reserve Bank deputy governor S S Mundra to oversee the recalibration process of all the ATMs.

Under the task force, a working group was formed which included of representatives of ATMs manufacturers like NCR, Diebold Nixdor, cash in transit companies and managed service providers, among others.

Dastur said the working group consisted of around 40-60 people and they have been recalibrating on an average 12,000 ATMs per day.

He said the rest of the ATMs would be re-calibrated over the next 10 days to dispense new notes.

Thousands of students appear for board exams in restive Kashmir

The government had decided to hold the exams as scheduled despite demands by parents that they be put off as the unrest had disrupted educational activities in the Valley. Massive security arrangements are in place for the smooth conduct of the examinations. However, there were no restrictions on the movement of people anywhere in the Valley, the officials said.

Along with the heavy rush of vehicles, shops were also open in areas like civil lines and outskirts of the city as well as in few of the rural areas in other districts of Kashmir.

Inter-district cabs were also plying on different routes, the officials said. Many vendors had put up their stalls along TRC Chowk-Batamaloo axis through Lal Chowk city centre, while banks were also open across the Valley and witnessed rush of customers.

However, many shops, fuel stations and other business establishments in other areas of the Valley were shut due to a separatist sponsored strike. The separatists have been issuing weekly protest programmes since the killing of Hizbul Mujahideen militant Burhan Wani in July.

As many as 85 people, including two police men, have been killed and several thousand others injured in the ongoing unrest in the Valley. Around 5000 security forces personnel have also been injured in the clashes.

GST portal goes live, software almost ready: GSTN Chairman Navin Kumar

New Delhi: A new and simpler portal for the incoming Goods and Services Tax regime went live today that will enable easy filing of returns and tax payments through credit/debit cards and other modes.

As much as 60 per cent of the software needed to run GST is ready and GSTN – the company building the gigantic infrastructure and IT backbone for it, made the www.gst.gov.in portal live for migrating existing tax payers.

It will test the software for integrating a welter of state and central levies before the ‘one market, one rate’ tax model comes into being from April next year.

GSTN Chairman Navin Kumar said migrating more than 65 lakh VAT payers, about 20 lakh service tax payers and about 3-4 lakh central excise duty payers to a new portal has started. A provisional identification number, called GSTIN for the assesses who have moved to the new portal is being generated, Kumar told PTI.

New registrations under GST will start from April 2017. On the new portal, businessmen and traders who currently have to file separate returns for array of indirect taxes like excise duty, service tax and VAT, will file a single monthly return and pay tax online through various payment cards, including credit and debit, he said.

GSTN is building a network that will not just integrate the assessees paying service tax, excise and other local levies, but will also help in building the IT backbone for online registration, refund, return filing and tax payment.

“Because we started work in November 2015, today we are in a happy position that 60 per cent of the software development has been completed; 40 per cent is balance and
that work is going on,” Kumar said.

The GSTN is building four data centres spread across Delhi and Bengaluru to ensure that the data is safe, secure and to ensure data recovery, whenever required.

Kumar said GSTN has started importing hardware and by December all equipment would be ready and testing would start.

“About 80 lakh tax payers will be migrated from the existing to GST regime. That migration we are starting now. We will generate a PAN-based provisional ID for each tax payer. By December, all the hardware equipment will be ready. Then, the software will be put on the data centre and then the testing will start,” he said.

Under the GST regime, taxes can be paid using debit, credit cards as well as through NEFT/RTGS transfers.

Kerala: Jailed beedi tycoon Mohammed Nisham running business from prison

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>Relatives of Mohammed Nisham, the multi-millionaire ‘beedi king’ of Kerala who is serving a life sentence, have filed a complaint alleging that he is running his business from inside the prison where he is currently in and that he has been sending them death threats.He also has access to two mobile phones, as per NDTV report.In the complaint filed to the Thrissur Police chief, the kin of Nisham, who has been convicted of killing a security guard by driving his Hummer into him, have alleged that he has access to a mobile phone inside the jail through which he was also running his business.According to reports, Nisham’s family handed over audio clip of telephonic conversation to police where he is threatening them. He also allegedly threatened his relatives over phone while he was being taken to Bangalore for investigation. Earlier, a controversy had erupted over Nisham’s stay in jail as on one journey back from court, he was filmed treating his police escorts to a lavish meal, following which five policemen were suspended.Meanwhile, a quick probe has been ordered as it is believed that a nexus between Nisham and police officers exist, giving him access to run his business. About a year ago Nisham had rammed his SUV into 51-year-old security guard Chandrabose, pinned him to a wall, dragged him for 700 metres, stomped on him and then allegedly shouted “this dog will not die”. In January this year, Nisham was awarded life sentence by a Kerala court and was ordered to give Rs 71 lakh fine for the murder of Chandrabose.

New Hizbul commander asks Kashmiri Pandits to return to Valley

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –> Militant outfit Hizbul Mujahideen has asked migrant Kashmiri Pandits, who were forced to flee the Valley in early 1990 after the eruption of militancy, to return to their homes, assuring protection to them, and also said it was planning to raise a group of Sikh youths.”We request Kashmiri Pandits to return to their homes. We take responsibility of their safety,” Zakir Rashid Bhat alias ‘Musa’, the self-styled commander of the militant outfit, said in a brief video message released yesterday.Thousands of Kashmiri Pandits were forced to flee the Valley after they were targeted by militant groups during the outbreak of militancy and have been living in Jammu and other parts of the country. “They should look at those Pandits who never left Kashmir. Who has harassed or killed them?” asked slain militant Burhan Wani’s ‘successor’.Dressed in military camouflage and fiddling with a grenade in the video, Bhat, who dropped out of engineering course from a Punjab college and joined Hizbul Mujahideen some years back, also gave a bizzare argument that Pandits were forced out of the Valley under a planned strategy to target Muslims. He claimed that the government was planning to take action in the Valley in an operation similar to ‘Operation Blue Star’ in Punjab.Bhat revealed in the 1.38 minute video that the militant was planning to raise an exclusive group of Sikh youths in the outfit.”Our Sikh brothers are requesting us to join Hizbul Mujahideen…We are with them on every front and God willing, we will try and make an exclusive group for Sikhs in the outfit,” he said. About the latest trend of weapon snatching in the Valley, especially in south Kashmir districts, he said, “Many youths have taken to Jihad, snatched the weapons and joined our ranks.”Two green banners with religious slogans and as many weapons on both sides behind him could also been seen in the video which was shot at an unknown location. South Kashmir witnessed a spurt in weapon snatching incidents over the past three months of unrest which was triggered by the killing of Wani in an encounter with security forces on July 8. The unrest has so far claimed 84 lives and injured thousands of others.

Surgical strikes done? Let’s ban Bollywood but continue our business with Pakistan

Now that one week has passed after India’s surgical strikes against terrorists camps in Pakistan, can we please stop congratulating ourselves? Can we please sit down and calmly look at issues raised? Specifically, can all of us walk into a cinema hall and look at what happened to Bollywood?

In the beginning of this tragic-comedy drama, the Maharastra Navnirman Sena gave a 48-hour ultimatum to all Pakistani actors to leave India. They protested outside Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions office.

Poster of 'Ae Dil Hai Mushkil'Poster of 'Ae Dil Hai Mushkil'

Poster of ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’

They said they will not allow Dharma’s Ae Dil Hai Mukshil (which features Pakistani actor Fawad Khan) to release on Oct 28th.

They have also threatened to stop the release of Excel & Red Chillies forthcoming film Raees (which features Pakistani actress Mahira Khan in a leading role opposite Shahrukh Khan).

I am puzzled by what gives MNS the right to demand this? Could it be sheer goonda power?

After all this is a party which won one seat out of the 219 it contested in the 2014 elections and its lone MLA from Junnar, SB Sonawane has already launched another party.

But then MNS is not just the comedian we see on our screen. Soon the BJP, Shiv Sena, Congress, NCP and others also asked Bollywood to boycott Pakistani artistes. Many well-known personalities (many from Bollywood themselves), TV news anchors and media companies also called for a boycott. The accusation leveled at Bollywood: How can you use Pakistani artiste when your Jawans are being killed by Pakistan-supported terrorists?

I am no admirer of Fawad Khan or Mahira Khan. I think India has far better actors if they are given a chance. But I fail to understand: Why didn’t the government of India which is directly affected by cross border terrorism ban the use of Pakistani talent in India? How can the Modi sarkar issues visas (since 2014) to Pakistani artistes when our Jawans are being killed by Pakistan-supported terrorists?

Is it because Pakistan artiste operating in Bollywood is a not really such an important issue for the government? Is it because the government wants officially to project that we don’t want to mix art with politics or military actions? The answers to these questions are not what party officials, Arnab Goswami, or rabble rousing military experts would want to hear.

Whilst we are seated inside the cinema hall and watching this Bollywood-under- attack dramedy, let us take a commercial break:India’s exports to Pakistan in 2015-16 was $2.17 billion. India’s imports were less than $500 million during the same period. Simply put, India makes more from Pakistan than Pakistan from India.

This year in Pakistan there has been a surge in demand for Indian cotton, dairy products and sugar. Incidentally, Pakistan was the largest buyer of Indian cotton in the 2015/16 season.

So in the last six months as an anti-Pakistan fever was gripping us, Indian companies were happily sending cotton and sugar from Mumbai’s port to Karachi. Have you ever seen the Shiv Sena or the MNS threatening to beat up these Mumbai based trading companies or Mumbai Port Trust officials?

In the case of cement it is the reverse scenario. Because of Indian demand, there is a surge in cement imports from Pakistan. Cement from Pakistan turns out to be cheaper. The average price of a sack of an Indian brand is around Rs 550 but Pakistani supplies are sold at Rs 480-500.

Have you ever seen Arnab scolding Indian businessmen on how dare they import cheaper cement from Pakistan when thousands of innocent Indians are being killed in Pak-sponsored terrorist acts?

Remember, these are all official Indo-Pak trades authorized by the Indian government.

According to an ICRIER report released in July 2016, India’s annual informal trade with Pakistan is about US$ 4.71 billion. Of this, India’s exports to Pakistan are estimated to be USD 3.99 billion and imports from Pakistan USD 0.72 billion.

The ICRIER report gives an interesting example of informal trade: The New Textile Market is a major textile hub in Surat with about 50,000 members. About 42,000 of its members are exporting overseas. The main export items of these exporters are Salwar Kameez Dupatta (SKD) and dyed and other fabrics etc. About 90 percent of these exporters export to Pakistan via Dubai and only 10 percent do it directly.
I have not yet seen any “nationalistic” party asking how dare these Surat traders send Salwar Kameez Dupatta to Pakistan?

Enough of this blaming Bollywood dramedy or as the Anupam Khers and Ashok Pandits exemplify nautanki.

Even though it’s a cliché this is true: Bollywood is a soft target.

(L-R) 'Ae Dil Hai Mushkil', 'Raees' and 'Dear Zindagi'(L-R) 'Ae Dil Hai Mushkil', 'Raees' and 'Dear Zindagi'

(L-R) ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’, ‘Raees’ and ‘Dear Zindagi’ all have Pakistani artists in them.

Today you will hear these psudeo-nationalists call for a ban on Ae Dil Hai Mushkil. In some days you will hear them asking to ban Amazon which is planning to launch Ae Dil Hai Mushkil in its paid digital video service. Next year they will ask Salman Khan and Kabir Khan’s Tubelight to be banned because it features Chinese actress Zhu Zhu and China is supplying weapons to Pakistan or because Salman Khan made a stupid statement.

The Indian government will turn a deaf ear to all this threats or shrug it off and say this is not our official policy. India will officially continue doing business with Pakistan and making pots of money, terrorism be damned.

And then our nationalists and our country’s conscience keepers will wait for another chance to hit Bollywood and grab eyeballs.

India not doing enough to protect kids from online abuse: UNICEF

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>UNICEF on Thursday released a first-of-its-kind, comprehensive report analysing the use of the Internet and mobile phones among children in India. The report has presented a scathing commentary on the lack of preparedness of Indian agencies to tackle online abuse of children. There are currently 40 lakh Internet users in India. The report estimates that 13.4 lakh Indian children use mobile phones.Social networking site Facebook and cross-platform application WhatsApp are increasingly posing a threat to the security of children online.A 13-year-old Indian boy was targeted by one of his classmates who used a fake identity to create a Facebook account to send out offensive messages to other children in the school. The victim did not have a Facebook account. He was hauled by his parents and teachers for misbehaviour. In another incident, a girl was forced out of a school WhatsApp group where a morphed obscene picture of her was shared.The report states the police and judiciary in India fail to appropriately respond to complaints of online harassment of children. “Such cases are often not registered or investigated due to limited understanding of child online offences system. Also, there is inadequate forensic capacity to investigate online offences and inadequate cooperation by India for investigating international offences,” the report states.It also states that the conviction rates for child online abuse are extremely low due to poor quality of evidence and the lack of police capacities to handle cyber evidence. The report goes on to say, “Police have often not been trained to preserve e-mails as evidence in child sexual abuse case. They also often do not attach a 65-B certificate due to which the evidence cannot be admitted in court. As a result, victims of online abuse are denied justice, while perpetrators enjoy impunity.”Weighing in on the effectiveness of the judiciary, the report states, “Even as the cyber appellate tribunal, to appeal in case of online harassment cases was formed in 2006, a judge to preside and decide on the cases has not been appointed since 2011,” stated the report.Picking loopholes in Indian law, the report states that emotional harassment, cyber-bullying, sexting, social exclusion, ideological indoctrination or exposure to inappropriate content do not constitute legal offences under Indian law.In 2015, a survey carried out by a private IT company threw up shocking results. About 43 per cent of children active on social media claimed to have witnessed cruel behaviour, while 52 per cent of children indicated that they had themselves bullied people over social media. This included being mean to other children, the bullies saying they did not like them and taking a dig at someone by calling them ‘fat’ or ‘ugly’, making fun of someone’s physical appearances or tagging them in mean pictures. Such emotional harassment under cyber-bullying is not considered a ‘legal’ offence under Indian law, making it impossible to bring perpetrators to book.The report recommends to make priority interventions in formulating a national framework for child online safety in India. It also recommends the review and revision of cyber laws in India pertaining to child abuse and exploitation.

Mohalla clinics help to cure 97 per cent of patients’ problems: CM Arvind Kejriwal

New Delhi: Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Monday said ‘mohalla’ (community) clinics set up by his government help in taking care of 97 per cent of the problems that patients come with and 1,000 such clinics will come up by the end of this year.

In his address during the Delhi Assembly Lecture Series’ inaugural talk on ‘Water and Farm Crisis in India’ delivered by veteran journalist P Sainath, he said that the government will be launching 150 poly-clinics in the state, which will be little bigger than mohalla clinics and have more facilities.

“The patients who come to the mohalla clinics, 97 per cent of their problems are cured here. For the rest three per cent, they have to go to the hospitals. These clinics and polyclinics have replaced the dispensaries which had already collapsed,” Kejriwal said talking about the three-tier system of health infrastructure in Delhi.

“About 212 tests are are done at these clinics free of cost and the medicines are given free of cost,” he said.

U.S. moves to reduce salt in restaurant, packaged food | Reuters

WASHINGTON The United States moved on Wednesday to cut the amount of salt in packaged and restaurant food in a bid to reduce the number of heart attacks and strokes linked to consuming too much sodium.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration issued draft guidelines for major food manufacturers and big chain restaurants that are aimed at reducing salt in foods such as soup, pizza, deli meat, dips, hamburgers, baked goods, snack foods and more.

The agency’s move is aimed at lowering the average American’s salt consumption by a third, saying people in the United States consume almost 50 percent more sodium than recommended by most experts.

Many U.S. food companies, including Campbell Soup Co, General Mills Inc and Kraft Heinz Co, have already cut salt levels to some extent in anticipation of the guidelines, which have been in the works since 2011.

The FDA proposed a daily sodium intake target of 2,300 milligrams a day, down from the current average adult intake of about 3,400 milligrams a day.

The agency will discuss the draft with the public and industry before making the guidelines final, and that daily target may be modified.

“Like others inside and outside of government, we believe additional work is needed to determine the acceptable range of sodium intake for optimal health,” said Leon Bruner, chief science officer at the Grocery Manufacturers Association, the industry’s biggest lobbying organization.

“This evaluation should include research that indicates health risks for people who consume too much sodium as well as health risks from consuming too little sodium,” Bruner added.

FDA Commissioner Robert Califf acknowledged on a conference call with reporters that there is controversy about the impact of sodium on health and what levels are considered safe for public health, but said the agency’s goal is to get the overall salt intake down to “reasonable levels.”

Different food categories will have different targets, and some products have more room for reductions than others. The agency singled out salad dressing as an example, saying the amount of sodium ranges from 150 mg per hundred grams to more than 2,000. Wheat bread ranges from 220 mg to 671 mg, it said.

Increased sodium intake is linked to high blood pressure, which can lead to heart disease and stroke, two major causes of death in the United States. (1.usa.gov/282RWBD)

About half the money spent by Americans on food goes toward food eaten outside the home, according to government figures.

The guidelines were issued less than two weeks after the FDA said it planned a major overhaul of the way packaged foods are labeled to reflect the amount of added sugar and specific serving sizes.

Scuffle between jewellers, BJP workers

A scuffle broke out between protesting jewellers demanding roll back of excise duty on jewellery items and BJP workers after the agitators failed to elicit an assurance from Union minister Venkaiah Naidu.As Naidu was leaving after inaugurating a public toilet at a East Delhi market, sloganeering protesters, who had met him earlier, wanted a promise from him that the government would consider their demands.<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>However, police escorted Naidu to his vehicle, which agitators tried to stop.After he left, BJP workers and protesters clashed, leading to chaos and heavy traffic on the road.Police, however, managed to control the situation in about 15 minutes.In his speech, Naidu earlier said, “I had asked them what their demands are. They were not ready to say anything. I sought a representation from them which I could look into and find the solution. I think they did not come for that. They must have come for getting publicity through protest.” About 50 protesters had gathered at the venue and were shouting slogans, ‘Bharat Mata ki Jai’ and ‘Excise duty vaapas lo’ (roll back excise duty) as the minister was about to reach the venue in the evening.Reaching the spot, Naidu got down of the vehicle and asked the security people to let him talk to them.In a democracy, the minister said everybody has the right to express their views but there should not be ruckus in the public meeting.In such meeting, he said the people should meet the representative and hand over the representation seeking their demands.However, a jeweller said they were holding protest peacefully but BJP workers started beating them after Naidu left.

Modi in Brussels: PM takes a veiled dig at Pakistan

In a veiled dig at Pakistan, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday said “some neighbours” don’t understand that issues can be resolved peacefully by talks as he cited the example of Bangladesh with which decades-old disputes, including boundary question, were solved.LIVE INDIA vs WEST INDIES 2nd semi final T20, ICC World T20While talking about how disputes with Bangladesh were solved, he said, “We presented an example before the world that by talking, issues can be resolved with neighbouring countries. (But) some neighbours do not understand this. Now, how can we change our neighbours? They will also understand, some day they will also understand.”<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>He did not name Pakistan but was apparently referring to this country with which there are several disputes and India wants these to be resolved through talks.”Sometimes we wonder whether there can be solutions to problems with neighbours….There was a land dispute with Bangladesh since that country was born in 1971. Since then, the question was pending. One issue was about water sharing, another about demarcation of boundary in the sea and third about land boundary,” Modi said addressing a gathering of Indian diaspora in Brussels.”You would be happy to know that after our government came, without firing any bullet, without any fight, by just sitting with Bangladesh, the border dispute was ended. Whoever had to come to India, they came, whoever had to go to Bangladesh they went, the border was dermarcated and now fencing work is going on there. The disease of infiltration will also end and both the countries will live peacefully and happily. Water dispute has also been resolved,” Modi said.He was enlisting various steps taken by his 22-month-old government to take the country forward.The Prime Minister said while the world was going through an economic crisis, global analysts and rating agencies like IMF see India as a “land of hope”. India is currently one of the fastest growing economies, “not because of ‘naseeb’ (luck), nor because of Modi but the reason for this is the efforts by 125 crore people of the country,” he said.”If the direction is right, policy is clear and above all, intention is clear, then nobody can stop India. India can progress,” he said.Modi, who enlisted before NRIs the various initiatives of the government during the one-hour speech, said he was giving account of his work as he considers himself ‘pradhan sevak’ (prime servant) and not Prime Minister.”In a democracy, it is obligatory to give account of your work to the people,” he said.Talking about corruption, he said he was confident that the menace can end with little changes. The Prime Minister said his government’s initiatives have helped curb theft and pilferage to the tune of thousands of crores of rupees.”When Modi does this, will he not be troubled? Will not there be some people who would have suffered losses? Having usurped so much, their shouting capacity too will be big. That is why they say all around that ‘Modi is useless’, ‘he does nothing’. You will get to hear that ‘Modi does nothing’. It is normal since their condition has become bad after grabing the cream for so many years,” he said, taking a dig at critics.While talking about efforts to stop pilferages, he referred to urea and said the government had decided to neem coat the product, which ensures that it can be of no use except as a fertilizer.”And the result was that diversion of urea to chemical factories ended. The assessment is being made. It will end theft of thousands of crores of rupees. And if you hear voices against Modi, then you should conclude that Modi has tightened the screws somewhere. The more stronger the voices against me, you should understand that there is something wrong… Sometimes ‘poori daal hi kaali nazar aati hai’. What I want to say is that things can be changed and results can also be got.”About his government’s initiatives, Modi said the year 2015 saw the highest production of power, urea, ethanol, coal and milk. He said 90 lakh people had given up LPG subsidy following his call and this was being diverted to poor people who still cook using firewood. The government will bear the cost of first LPG cylinder of 5 crore poor people.The railways saw maximum expansion and construction of highways saw a jump from 2 kms per day during previous government to 20-22 kms per day, Modi said.On the ‘ease of doing business’, India rose in the rank by 12 points and the maximum amount of foreign exchange was received, the Prime Minister told the Indian diaspora. He said while banks were nationalised by Indira Gandhi in 1969, 40 per cent of people remained out of the banking system.Under the NDA government’s Jandhan scheme, 21 crore new accounts were opened and “Today, almost all the citizens have Aaadhar-linked bank accounts”, Modi said. Rs 34,000 crore have been deposited in these accounts.JAM (Jandhan, Aadhaar, Mobile) scheme of providing subsidy to the intended poor people ensured that theft of about 14,000-15,000 crore was stopped every year, he said.”When our government came to power, 18,000 villages did not have electricity even after nearly 70 years after Independence…I said on Independence Day last year that these villages will be electrified in 1000 days. Seven months have passed since then, and in more than 7000 villages, poles, cables etc have reached,” Modi said.He said people can keep track of the progress by using a GARV App.About the intention to achieve 175 Gigawatt of renewable power generation, Modi said he was confident of achieving it. With regard to toilets in schools, he said the target was to build 4.25 lakh toilets and “today no school is left without a toilet”. He also talked about ‘One-Rank, One-Pension’ scheme, saying the demand had been pending for over 40 years and his government had fulfilled it within no time.”The earlier governments used to keep Rs 200 crore for it…it costs Rs 10,000 crore every year. Earlier, only promises were made to the soldiers who die for the country but we fulfilled the promise,” Modi said.

Save water, diversify crops, take up allied jobs: PM Modi tells farmers

With back-to-back droughts hitting the agriculture output hard, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday called for steps to conserve water and asked farmers to focus on crop diversification and go for allied activities like dairy, poultry and food processing to boost their income.Inaugurating a 3-day ‘Krishi Unnati Mela’, Modi said since May 2014 when it came to power, his government has taken several initiatives for agriculture growth, including introduction of a new insurance scheme and giving soil health cards to farmers, with a view to doubling their income by 2022.<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>As per the latest government data, the all-India average monthly income of agricultural households during the crop year July 2012-June 2013 was estimated at Rs 6,426.He even gave a clarion call for second green revolution in eastern states, which have adequate water and fertile land, through adoption of modern technologies.Putting a premium on water conservation to raise farm productivity and income, Modi said the government has identified 90 stuck irrigation projects which can irrigate 80 lakh hectares. The government is spending Rs 20,000 crore to boost irrigation projects.Attacking opposition parties for claiming that all projects and programmes started when they were in power, the Prime Minister said: “You would be surprised to know that as much as 90 projects which are full of water like dams have been built, but there is no way to provide water to farmers.” He added: “Now, my government is working to provide water from these projects and once it is completed, around 80 lakh hectares will get water. And once water reaches there, you all can think how much that land will give us back.” The Prime Minister spoke of funds from MNREGA programme to be utilised this summer for creation of assets such as ponds to conserve water.”About MNREGA, many discussions take place, but no asset has been created. This government is emphasising… during this summer in every village, one work should be done through MNREGA and that is desilting of ponds, deepening of ponds and creating new ones. In this Budget, the government is aiming at 5 lakh ponds,” Modi said.For good part, the Prime Minister emphasised on micro and drip irrigation as well as liquid fertiliser to reduce cost of production and raise farmers’ income level.”Water harvesting is of as much importance as water conservation. We do not have the right to waste water. Per drop more crop is how we can do that,” Modi said.The Prime Minister asked farmers to continue with their regular farming activity, but also told them to adopt animal husbandry, grow timber and go for value addition and processing.”Food processing is the best way to increase the farmers’ income,” he suggested.

dna Impact: Maharashtra govt ignores definition of kin, saves 3 lives

Maharashtra government’s decision to forget the legal definition of who is a ‘close relative’ is going to save three lives.For nine months, a 62-year-old man had wanted to donate his kidney to his 45-year-old niece, under what is called a domino transplant.But the Human Organ Transplant Act (HOTA), 1994, under which kidney transplants are performed in India, insists that donors and recipients should be close relatives. This Act doesn’t recognise a maternal uncle and niece as close relatives.In this case, the transplant covered three persons. dna is withholding the names of the three to protect their identities.When several meetings with state authorisation committee officials, who give the go-ahead for domino transplants, did not yield results, relatives of the patients approached Governor C Vidyasagar Rao.dna had published a series of articles, starting from April 4, 2015, highlighting their case. The last report was published on November 8, 2015.With the government nod, the transplant will now take place in the third week of January.Of the three surgeries, two will be done at PD Hinduja hospital and one at Bombay hospital. Hinduja hospital nephrologist Dr Jatin Kothari, who is part of the transplant, said: “The two previous domino transplants were hugely successful. Their success has set a precedent. It encourages people to opt for the transplant as it reduces waiting time.””Great thanks to Governor C Vidyasagar Rao, chief minister Devendra Fadnavis and minister of medical education Vinod Tawde, who all took keen interest in the case. This is the third time we will be performing a domino transplant,” he said.”All three transplants will be conducted the same day. About 20-24 doctors will perform the transplant in six operation theatres,” he said.The previous domino transplant, consisting of six donors and six recipients, was held on January 25, 2014, in Mumbai.Talking to dna, Tawde said: “We carefully examined the case to see that there is no exploitation and everyone benefits. On humanitarian grounds, we granted permission as it will save three lives. In future, if such cases come to us, definitely we will look at them positively. The law cannot be above human life.”<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>
