GR on selfies to track student attendance stayed 12.1.2017 DNA: Opinion
Bringing relief to school teachers, the state school education and sports departments have temporarily stayed the implementation of a Government Resolution (GR) mandating teachers to take selfies with groups of 10 students on two Mondays of each month to track attendance and reduce dropouts. Many teachers had complained on Tuesday that their selfies with students were not getting uploaded on the website specified by the government, and that they had wasted their whole day on Monday grappling with the problem. Education Minister Vinod Tawde on Wednesday issued a statement to the press that the implementation of the GR was being carried out erroneously by education officials at the zilla and taluka levels, and that a meeting with education officials would soon be called to discuss the right manner of implementation. From the start of the year, teachers were instructed to click selfies with groups of ten students and upload them on the SARAL website through a specified link. The government wants teachers to ...

PM Modi cannot perform padmasana, but made entire country do shirsasan: Congress 11.1.2017 DNA: Mumbai
Setting the tone for Congress' campaign in assembly polls in five states, Rahul Gandhi launched a no holds barred attack on Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday, accusing him of instilling fear among people and wrecking the economy through demonetization, while asserting his party will unseat BJP from power in 2019. A day-long national convention, called in the wake of demonetization, saw top Congress leaders including former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and former Finance Minister P Chidambaram coming down hard on Modi. Singh cautioned people that "worse is still to come". Squarely blaming the Prime Minister for "undermining" institutions like Reserve Bank of India, Election Commission and judiciary, the Congress Vice President said the ruling dispensation has also created fear among the media which he felt was not being able to carry out its responsibility as a watchdog effectively. Billed as 'Jan Vedna' Sammelan, the meet attended by CWC members, Congress Chief Ministers, AICC office bearers, ...

Govt to take decision on single entrance examination for engineering after consulting states 11.1.2017 DNA: Wide Angle
Government will take a final decision on holding of a NEET like single entrance examination for admission to engineering colleges after holding consultation with different states. According to official sources, at a high level meeting of the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) on Wednesday, the issue of holding a single examination for engineering college admissions, similar to what NEET is for medical college admissions came up. The proposal received widespread support from a lot of participants but it was decided that before a final decision is taken in the matter it should be discussed with various states as well.
