Karnataka Institute of Diabetology (KID) Director K R Narasimha Setty's mobile bill claim not only overshot the Rs 3,000-limit set by the government, but also beats the price of many best phones.

As per the internal records of the institute, the director has self-approved the claim and also justified it: "Calls which could not have been postponed or avoided were made.

Congress, BJP have 'gut feeling': Higher turnout will favour them 19.4.2014 deccanherald.com
Both the Congress and the BJP think the higher turnout on Thursday would favour them. Their claims, however, do not reflect any exit poll or scientific study but their "gut feeling". KPCC president, G Parameshwara, welcomed the higher turnout, but said he was disappointed by the percentage of polling in Bangalore, though it was better than the 2009 figure. Voter apathy and extended holiday could be the reasons for low turnout in Bangalore, he told reporters here. But he did not delve into the reasons for the good turnout elsewhere. Higher Education Minister R V Deshpande, whose son Prashant contested from Uttara Kannada, said there were 58,000 young voters, from all communities in that constituency. The turnout was almost 70 per cent, an impressive increase from the 59 per cent in 2009. "It will naturally benefit the Congress which enjoys the support of SC/STs, OBCs and the minorities. The higher the turnout the better for the Congress," he claimed. The reason for good turnout elsewhere, according to ...

The process of evaluating SSLC answer papers is set to commence on April 20.

Rajesh Angadi, a school teacher in Koppal said: "Just one mark can make a big difference for students and can determine their chances of getting or not getting colleges and careers of their choice. This system will make teachers accountable for every mistake and make them cautious against committing such mistakes." According to the new system, evaluators who make mistakes in the range of zero to 15 marks will be issued a warning. Mistakes of 15 marks to 30 marks will attract a fine of Rs 800 to Rs 1,000.
