At a time when differently abled people find it difficult to avail themselves of the welfare schemes of the government owing to their physical condition, here is a man who uses his free time helping such people.

'Respond promptly to cyber crime complaints' 30.5.2017 Deccan Herald - District
Encrypted messages on social networking sites like WhatsApp have raked up privacy and cyber security concerns, felt CID DGP Kishore Chandra. He was speaking at the 17th cyber crime awareness workshop for law enforcement agencies organised by Data Security Council of India (DSCI), Karnataka Police and Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology here on Tuesday. The DGP said the new security features in social networking sites encrypt all types of data that can be read or viewed only by recipients. This has been posing a challenge to social security. Prompt response to complaints on cyber crime is necessary to check loss of money to phishing or online bank frauds by deactivating SIM cards of bank customers and attempt to siphoning of cash. There is a need to change rules of procedure to CrPC, various changes in IPC Act to tackle cyber crime. The police need to keep up with the times as IT is developing at a fast pace. The DGP later told reporters that the workshop was organised in Mangaluru, a ...

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 ...
