Real estate body presents pre-budget petition to government 17.2.2017 deccanherald.com
The Karnataka chapter of Confederation of Real Estate Developers' Association of India on Friday urged the state government to reduce stamp duty on immovable properties to 3% from 5%. In a pre-budget memorandum submitted to Chief Minister Siddaramaiah, CREDAI said reduction in stamp duty will not only help the real estate sector overcome the sluggishness but increases revenue to the government. Currently, a property buyer pays 6.5% to the government (5% stamp duty, 1% registration fee and 0.5% cess), it added. CREDAI has also sought reduction in stamp duty on joint development agreements (JDAs) and affordable housing units (less than Rs 50 lakh or up to 60 sq mtr). A JDA is only an understanding between the land owners and the developer to take up a project. The actual transfer of properties happens after the project is developed. Hence, a nominal stamp duty of 0.5% should charged instead of 2%. The Real Estate Regulatory Act which will come into force from May this year, allows sale of sites immediately ...

Early release of Rs 2.19 cr student scholarship: Minister 3.2.2017 deccanherald.com
Home Minister GParameshwara on Friday promised to facilitate the early release of the pending Rs 2.19-crore student scholarship funds from the Department of Social Welfare. Presiding over the quarterly Karnataka Development Programmes (KDP) progress review meeting held here, Parameshwara, who is also the district in-charge minister, reacted to the demand of MLADNJeevaraj. The legislator brought it to the notice of the minister that the scholarship funds were pending for last three years, owing to failure to sanction funds as explained by officials. Fellow MLAs from the district, CTRavi and BBNingaiah, seconded Jeevaraj's demand, saying the officials are misleading the minister in this regard. Following this, Parameshwara, who termed it a serious issue that needs to be dealt with, said, "I fall in the same bracket, as I also pursued education with the aid of scholarship." Jeevaraj also complained against the Forest Department for unnecessarily troubling the forest dwellers of the Kudremukh National Park ...

Where sloth bears can live without fear 30.1.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
With their habitats changing, sloth bears are more prone to conflicts with humans. Efforts should be taken up more diligently to save both from such situations, writes B K Singh. While animals such as tigers and elephants dominate the attention of wildlife managers with regard to conservation strategy and research, some lesser-known species are often forgotten. One such animal is sloth bear, which is the most common bear species in India. Sloth bears feed on termites and ants. Despite morphological specialisation like long front claws, short hind legs, long and near naked muzzle, long and raised palate and loss of first maxillary incisors in adults, they have a considerably broader diet. This is because they adapt to seasonal and geographic changes in food availability. Sloth bears are vulnerable in the wild, and are listed in Scheduled I of Wildlife Protection Act 1972. Often, the habitats of sloth bears are disturbed by urbanisation and by people collecting minor forest produces such as honey and ...
