Anna Bhagya shop loses licence for cheating BPL families 17.11.2017 deccanherald.com
The Department of Food and Civil Supplies raided two fair price shops in the city following complaints that they were cheating BPL families under the Anna Bhagya scheme. The licence of one shop has been cancelled while the fate of the other is yet to be decided. Discrepancies were, however, found in both the shops. NGO Lancha Mukta Karnataka Nirmana Vedike recently conducted a sting operation on two shops and found that while one was supplying 2-3 kg less than the quota of foodgrains, the other was sending the beneficiaries away by claiming there was no stock. This happened in spite of the fact that beneficiaries provided their biometric and Aadhaar details. On Wednesday, a team of food inspectors and the NGO visited a fair price shop in Gurappanapalya. It checked the stock and found that the details didnt match with the distribution data submitted online. The shop had a stock of 184.50 quintals of rice whereas the actual stock after the distribution, as indicated in the system, should be ...

Making engineers job-ready 15.11.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
A renowned Kannada poet urged students not to be the bags collecting paddy, but rather be the fields growing paddy. The current Indian education system is accused of drying out inquisitiveness that is natural in children. Consequently, students are finding themselves less competent to solve societal and industrial problems. This is more conspicuous in technical programmes like engineering. Technical education and research, the backbone of Indian economy, is provided by institutions identified under tier I, tier II and tier III categories. Although, tier I and tier II institutions are known for high quality education, they account for a tiny proportion of technical manpower supply to Indian economy. It is the Tier III institutes, which are mostly university-affiliated institutes, that supply more than 90% of the human resource. Thus, they determine the quality of technical core of our economy. However, some of these institutes are blamed for producing graduates who may not have the necessary knowledge and ...

PDS shops cheating the poor under Anna Bhagya, shows NGO sting 10.11.2017 deccanherald.com
At least two fair price shops in the city are cheating BPL families under the state governments flagship Anna Bhagya scheme. They are either sending them back by saying there is no stock or are supplying 2-3 kg less than the designated quota. In a sting operation, Lancha Mukta Karnataka Nirmana Vedike, an NGO, found that fair price shops are under-providing rice though the beneficiaries are linked to biometric and Aadhaar-linked systems.
