Afghanistan pavilion charms visitors at the Trade Fair 22.11.2017 DNA: Recent Columns
Passing by the Afghanistan pavilion at the India International Trade Fair in Pragati Maidan, this writer cannot help but reminisce about a childhood that was peppered with the story of a little girl, Mini and her friendship with Kabuliwala, a dry fruit seller.  Dressed in their traditional attire of Pathani suits, the tall, well-built Pathans at this pavilion seem taken straight out of the tale written by Rabindranath Tagore. Afghanistan, a long standing ally of India, has been provided a special block this year as a mark of decades of long friendship between the two nations. More than 50 different stalls have been put up in the area, bringing to the host nations all the highlights of Afghani culture. It has its most famous advertisement —dry fruits— ranging from almonds, raisins, hazelnuts, spices like saffron, handicrafts, embroidered clothes and marble figurines.

FCC chairman sets out to scrap open internet access rules 22.11.2017
The chairman of the Federal Communications Commission set out on Tuesday to scrap rules around open internet access, a move that would allow giant cable and telecom companies to throttle broadband speeds and favour their own services if they wish. Ajit Pai followed through on a pledge to try to repeal "net neutrality" regulations enacted under the Obama administration. The current rules treat internet service providers such as Comcast, AT&T and Verizon as if they were utility companies that provide essential services, like electricity. The rules mandate that they give equal access to all online content and apps. Pai said those rules discourage investments that could provide even better and faster online access. Instead, he said new rules would force ISPs to be transparent about their services and management policies, and they would let the market decide. "Under my proposal, the federal government will stop micromanaging the internet," Pai said in a statement. Pai distributed ...

What is net neutrality and why does it matter? 22.11.2017
"Net neutrality" regulations, designed to prevent internet service providers like Verizon, AT&T, Comcast and Charter from favouring some sites and apps over others, are on the chopping block. Federal Communications Commission Chairman Ajit Pai, a Republican, on Tuesday, unveiled a plan to undo the Obama-era rules that have been in place since 2015. Here"s a look at what the developments mean for consumers and companies. WHAT IS NET NEUTRALITY? Net neutrality is the principle that internet providers treat all web traffic equally, and it"s pretty much how the internet has worked since its creation. But regulators, consumer advocates and internet companies were concerned about what broadband companies could do with their power as the pathway to the internet — blocking or slowing down apps that rival their own services, for example. WHAT DID THE GOVERNMENT DO ABOUT IT? The FCC in 2015 approved rules, on a party-line vote, that made sure cable and phone companies don"t ...

Economic panel denies clearance for Kerala NH tendering 22.11.2017
THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: The tendering process for  NH 17 and NH 47 works are being postponed due to non-clearance from the cabinet committee on economic affairs. The NH projects which require more than Rs 1,000 crore need the clearance of the union cabinet. Land acquisition has been delayed although chief minister Pinarayi Vijayan had taken the initiative to end the stalemate.  PWD minister G. Sudhakaran had told DC that  the  NH 17 and NH 47 works can be resumed only by next year.  The work on the Cherthala – Kazhakkoo-ttam stretch under  NH 47 has not gained momentum due to the issues created  by the National Highway Authority of India."The delays caused by NHAI and red-tapism in the state government are hindering the progress,"  said a  PWD official. Currently, Rs 35–Rs 40 crore is required for developing a km of stretch of the state highway.   Former Planning Commission member B.K. Chaturvedi, who headed the committee for ...

Hyderabad High Court irked that big transporters get away lightly 22.11.2017
Hyderabad: The Hyderabad High Court on Tuesday told AP and TS governments to crack the whip against the powerful lobby of private bus operators. A division bench comprising Acting Chief Justice Ramesh Ranganathan and Justice G. Shyam Prasad was dealing with a PIL by city advocate K.V. Subba Reddy seeking a direction to the governments to frame guidelines for effective implementation of the provisions of Motor Vehi-cles Act 1988, Motor Trans-port Workers Act, 1961 and AP Motor Transport Workers Rules, 1963. The bench asked why the governments were taking a lenient view of big private bus operators and targeting small players. The bench said if the governments were not prepared to take stringent action, the court would deal with the issue. The bench felt that the meagre fines would not have any impact. TS Advocate-General D. Prakash Reddy said that operators of 4.28 lakh vehicles had given assurances to the government that they would implement the laws, and 1,247 vehicles had been registered with the ...
