‘India Aviation’ 2016 resonates well with our policy initiatives of ‘Make in India’, ‘Stand up India’ and ‘Start up India’, says President
Post by NPTV Thursday 17th Mar, 2016
The President of India, Shri Pranab Mukherjee inaugurated the 5thEdition of ‘India Aviation’ today (March 16, 2016) at Hyderabad.
Speaking on the occasion, the President said India is at the threshold of taking a major leap in the aviation sector. ‘India Aviation’ 2016 is well timed and resonates well with our latest policy initiatives of ‘Make in India’, ‘Stand up India’ and ‘Start Up India’. It is for global giants to seize this opportunity and take the lead to forge long-term partnerships. He expressed hope that this platform will usher a new era in strategic partnerships and collaboration in the Indian civil aviation sector enabling India become a hub of world class aerospace technology and services.
The President said Indian civil aviation market is growing at a rapid pace and now ranks ninth in the world. It is estimated that by 2020, India would be the third largest civil aviation market. With a network of domestic and international airlines connecting 40 countries, Indian airports handled passenger traffic of 190 million persons in 2015. Yet India is one of the least penetrated air-markets in the world with 0.04 trips per capita per annum as compared to 0.3 of China and more than 2 in the USA. The development of tourism, trade and travel has contributed to increased passenger traffic in India. By 2020, total passenger traffic in India is likely to touch 421 million. It is time for the government and all stakeholders of the Civil Aviation Industry to leverage this tremendous business opportunity.
The President said the civil aviation sector of India is poised for a faster and sustainable growth with the development of 100 smart cities; new economic corridors; more than 50 new airports and expansion of existing airports. The government is planning to invest over 120 Billion US$ in the development of airport infrastructure and Aviation Navigation Services over the next decade. The deeper air penetration to smaller cities; better connectivity to North Eastern part of India and higher disposable incomes of the middle class of India is expected to further propel the growth of Indian Civil Aviation Industry.
Double-digit growth in current global scenario impossible with pending reforms: Jaitley
Post by NPTV Thursday 17th Mar, 2016
Finance minister Arun Jaitley today said that double-digit growth in the current global environment would prove difficult for India, but said if pending reforms were addressed, it would have the necessary economic impact. Speaking at a media conclave in New Delhi, Mr. Jaitley said it was important to aim higher and continue with reforms to get the desired results. Mr. Jaitley said, he had been saying that agriculture has the most potential, adding that a sustained focus on eastern part of India as a region and agriculture as a sector can deliver double-digit growth in India. He said manufacturing sector growth can be stepped up now that wages are rising in China, the global industrial powerhouse. But for that domestic reforms are needed, he added. He specifically listed the proposed pan-India goods and services tax (GST) regime right upfront and said but for one party all the rest were supporting it. Mr. Jaitley also said that Vijay Mallya case is pending in court and every government agency is going to take strong action wherever he has violated the law. He said, Banks are going all out to recover every penny that they have given to Mallya. He also said the government has been trying to address the problem of NPAs in sectors like steel, textile, highways and infrastructure, which are on account of economic slowdown. He further said the immediate job of the government was to make sure public sector banks remained strong. "So I am trying to recapitalise banks", he said.
Police Recruitment will ease the job of the Personnel
Post by NPTV Thursday 17th Mar, 2016
Karnataka police are looked upon with respect elsewhere in the country. Modern systems need to be installed for early detection of modern age crimes-Parameshwara
The process of recruiting police personnel has been set into motion in the state. Already we have recruited about 8,000 new police personnel. 8,000 more are being appointed shortly. 450 to 500 new sub-inspectors are also being recruited by the home department," said state home minister, Dr G Parameshwar.
Addressing a press conference organized at the newly built police station at Dharmasthala, Parameshwara said that to fall in line with the national average, Karnataka should have had a police force of around a lac. But we have only 75,000 police personnel as of now. Because of this adverse situation, people in police department are working under tremendous pressure. To bring down this pressure, we have started to recruit police. Dakshina Kannada will get 24 new district armed reserve police and ten civil police personnel," the minister revealed.
The minister confessed that his attention has been drawn towards lacunae in the functioning of Karnataka Police Complaints Authority and said that has already held discussions with police top brass, and everything is being set right now. 40 new police stations have been allotted to the state, and we will get a clearer picture about the actual number of police stations sanctioned once the state budget is presented. We are setting up exclusive women's police stations in each of the districts. We are making sure that outside interference is avoided in police officers transfer and no one is allowed to meddle with the departmental discipline," the minister explained.
Parameshwar revealed that 40 acres of land has been sanctioned for building a new district prison at Mangaluru. He said that he is aware of the problems created because of installation of jammers at the prisons to block calls through cellphones. At the same time, jammers will become purposeless if their coverage is restricted. He hoped that this problem will get solved once the new prison building comes up.
Dr Parameshwar noted that the policemen from the state earn less and work more as compared to their counterparts in the neighbouring states. "The government has thought of building 11,000 residential quarters for the policemen. Out of them, 3,000 houses have already been built, and 4,500 more are being built this year," he stated.
The minister said that the police personnel find it impossible to get rented houses within the limits of their salaries. "Therefore, the government has given impetus to the scheme of providing housing to them. During the last year, there has been a notable decline in incidences of crime in the state. Karnataka police are looked upon with respect elsewhere in the country. We understand that modern systems need to be installed for early detection of modern age crimes," he observed.
Parameshwar claimed that efforts are being made to see that police department works in a people-friendly manner, and that police stations keep organizing programmes to bring the policemen closer to the people. He said that 60 percent of the population in India comprises of youth and a feeling that equality, brotherhood and freedom should settle in is getting embedded in the minds of every citizen in the recent past.
Dharmasthala Dharmadhikari, Dr D Veerendra Heggade, in his address, said that every society has good people and bad, just like light and darkness prevail in the world. He pointed out that there are people who like to lead peaceful and contented life, while there are those who believe in crimes. "As per deeply rooted belief, the Lord provides us protection. In real world, policemen, army etc help us to get protection from evil forces," he stated. He asked the home department to provide residential quarters for policemen and new police station building in Dharmasthala at the earliest. Heggade also felt that people's representatives may get power to do right things if an idol of a deity is installed in Vidhan Soudha.
Police outpost had started functioning in Dharmasthala in 1980. The new station functions from a rented premises owned by gram panchayat. Two police sub-inspectors, two assistant sub-inspectors, ten head constables and 30 personnel have been sanctioned. 20 have been deputed to this station for the present.

The Home minister refused to buy reports that the probe into the murder of scholar M M Kalburgi has hit a dead end. There are convincing similarities between the murders of rationalists in Maharashtra and Kalaburgi but we are looking for more evidence to establish it in the court of law.

Parameshwara denied that his recent meeting with AICC chairperson Sonia Gandhi had anything to do with Chief Minister Siddaramaiah controversial Hublot watch or the outcome of panchayat poll. We had only discussed about strengthening the party in the state,'' he added.
PM at Budget Session of Parliment
PM's reply to motion of thanks to President's address in Lok Sabha
PM appeals to opposition for co-operation in passage of important bills in Parliament
Prime Minister Narendra Modi has appealed to the entire opposition to extend their support for the passage of important bills in Parliament saying these legislations are in the interest of the people.
He said, Goods and Services Tax Bill, waterways Bill and Consumer Protection Bill are some of the key bills which need opposition support to sail through in Parliament. Replying to a debate in the Lok Sabha on motion of thanks to President's address in joint sitting of Parliament, Mr. Modi said that when Parliament does not function, the nation suffers and MPs suffer more as they cannot discuss issues of public interest.
He said, the nation is anxious because of what has being going on in Parliament in the last few days. Mr. Modi took a dig at Congress by invoking former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi's statement disapproving disruptions and said hindering debate in the House is very counter-productive.
The Prime Minister also said that the MPs should follow the advice of the President on the functioning of Parliament. He added the House is a place where debates are to take place, but sanctity of the debates should be maintained.
Mr. Modi also suggested that only women MPs should speak in Parliament on the occasion of International women Day on 8th March. He also stressed the need for focusing on primary education and water conservation.
The Prime Minister observed that NDA government is making efforts to strengthen the MGNREGA by plugging loopholes as it has failed to address the poverty alleviation. The Prime Minister also rejected the Congress allegation of not implementing the Food Security Act in Gujarat.
He said that the State Government has already implemented it. He however, reminded the main opposition, the Congress, that four states ruled by it are yet to implement the Food Security Act. He also sought the opposition support in making the bureaucracy accountable to the people.
Later, the House adopted the Motion of Thanks to the President for his address to Parliament after negating amendments moved by opposition.
