Endosulfan victims start indefinite fast at Kokkada 27.5.2017 Deccan Herald - News
Endosulfan victims have launched a mega protest and an indefinite fast unto death under the banner of Endo Virodhi Horata Samithi at Kokkada on Saturday. Lifetime victims of endosulfan who are struggling to lead a normal life were part of the protest. The endosulfan have been seeking fulfilment of demands like a pension of Rs 5,000 per month, a compensation of Rs 10 lakh and a permanent rehabilitation centre in each taluk. Noting that the schemes introduced for the endo victims have not been implemented properly, the protesters said that despite staging a stir at Freedom Park in Bengaluru, the chief minister has not set aside funds for the compensation in the budget. Kamala Kanyadi said, "I don't have any working male member in my family. I cannot leave my endosulfan affected children and go for work. The government has failed to give us the facilities that are due to us." When the Kerala government can give benefits to the victims, why can't the Karnataka government, she sought to know and added that ...

Help your domestic staff get insurance 14.5.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
Recently, my maid's husband met with an accident. It was so saddening to hear the financial crisis her family was going through due to hospital expenses, medicine expenses, and on top of it, reduced family income. Though we did help them in whatever way we could, but this made me think about the problems which unorganised workers face in their lives. Yes, they cannot afford private insurers, but there are various schemes offered by the government to this strata of society which they are not even aware of. We all are aware of the role of domestic workers in our lives. They take care of our homes, our families, and often take responsibility of looking after our children. So, it becomes our responsibility to at least educate them on various schemes available for them to protect their families from unforeseen emergencies. Let's discuss some of these schemes for you to enroll your domestic staff to these schemes. Rashtriya Swasthya Bima Yojna RSBY was launched in 2008 with the objective to increase access to ...

Opposition asks govt to revisit Aadhaar rules 10.4.2017 Business Standard: News Now
New Delhi, April 10Several opposition members today criticized the Centre's move to make Aadhaar mandatory for schemes like mid-day meal for school children, while Information Technology and Law Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad maintained that Aadhaar remained voluntary and is being made foolproof. Prasad said 34,000 operators have been blacklisted since 2010, including 1,000 operators since December, for polluting the system.Opposition members argued that Aadhaar has become a tool of "exclusion". During a discussion on the issue in the Rajya Sabha, Congress member Jairam Ramesh argued that Aadhaar has increasingly become an instrument of exclusion, with up to 25 per cent intended beneficiaries of government schemes not receiving benefits. "What sterilisation was to the Emergency, Aadhaar seeding is becoming to your Government," Ramesh said.Several other opposition members, particularly Trinamool Congress member Derek O'Brien, highlighted the dangers of Aadhaar data being compromised, or .

HC stays Upalokayukta directions on withholding official's pension 20.3.2017 Deccan Herald - City
The Karnataka High Court on Monday granted stay on the Upalokayukta's recommendation and directions to impose penalty of permanently withholding 10% of pension payable to a petitioner. The petitioner, H P Nagaraj, who was working as tahsildar in 2007 in Davangere, had issued cultivation slips to certain farmers and had later withdrawn them. A private complaint was registered against him with the Lokayukta. The Upalokayukta had issued certain recommendations to the state government following an enquiry into the complaint. The Upalokayukta had recommended to the government to impose a penalty of permanently withholding 10% pension payable to petitioner. The petitioner questioned the recommendation of the Upalokayukta overlooking Rule 14A(d) of the Karnataka Civil Services (Classification, Control and Appeal) Rules, 1957, which is the procedure to be followed by the Lokayukta and the Upalokayukta. The petitioner has said that the word "recommendation" suffers from unreasonableness and vagueness and hence ...

700 Gulf delegates threaten protest if PM doesn't announce concrete steps 7.1.2017 deccanherald.com
As Karnataka and the Centre beckoned the Indian diaspora seeking investments, 700 delegates from the Middle East stood waiting for an assurance from Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Despite being the source of maximum remittances to the country, they felt ignored and not engaged enough. On the sidelines of the Pravasi Bharatiya Divas 2017 event here on Saturday, the delegates articulated their concerns about rehabilitation, denial of voting rights and a lack of direction in the Centre's engagement with them. The demands had been pending for 25 years, the Sharjah-based Indian Association president Y A Rahim told DH. "Millions of Indians settled in the Gulf have been seeking contributory pension and NRI free-zones in districts to help them set up small-scale industries," he said. The Gulf community had matured enough to turn entrepreneurs, and the governments here could exploit it for mutual benefit. "China has done so, making millions of dollars in the process. We contribute $ 69 billion to India in ...
