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.

The Karnataka PU Lecturers' Association has hinted that its members might boycott the evaluation of II PUC answer scripts if their demands are not addressed. On Saturday, the association would submit a memorandum listing its demands to Chief Minister Siddaramaiah, seeking his intervention. Association president Thimayya Purle said that one of their primary demands was that the government has to pay the lecturers full salary when they go on leave to stuidy BEd. "During a discussion, we were told that lecturers would be paid 50% of their salary. This would come up to Rs 17,000. Of this, Rs 8,000 gets deducted towards non-pension scheme and other deductions. How can anyone run a family with just Rs 9,000," he questioned. The state government on Thursday had announced that it would give scholarships to lecturers who have to pursue BEd.

Aadhaar-linked DBT  rollout may be delayed 10.12.2016 deccanherald.com
The state government's plan to roll out Aadhaar-based direct benefit transfer system for disbursing social security pensions and wages under the employment guarantee scheme is likely to be delayed by at least six months. Reason: Nationalised banks are refusing to link beneficiaries' bank accounts with their Unique Identification Numbers (UIN or Aaadhar) without their consent. The banks have asked the government to furnish the consent letter of each beneficiary under these schemes to link bank accounts with their Aadhaar numbers - which is key for introducing Aadhaar-linked direct benefit transfer (DBT) system. The Aadhaar (Targeted Delivery of Financial and other Subsidies, Benefits and Services) Act, 2016, which came into effect from September this year, has made it mandatory to take the beneficiaries' consent to use their Aadhaar details. Aadhaar-based DBT is aimed at preventing misuse of subsidy schemes. Karnataka has over 56 lakh beneficiaries under 13 different social security pension schemes and ...
