Supply of rupees 2000 notes restricted
Dear Editor, It refers to media-reports about a dip in supply of rupees-2000 notes from Reserve Bank of India-RBI. Such a decision is welcome to prevent remerging of black money after bold step of demonetisation of old currency in denominations of rupees 500 and 1000 on 08.11.2017. It is a known perception that whole idea of issuing rupees 2000 notes was just a timely measure needed for smoothening difficult procedure of demonetisation in a vast country like India with 130 crores population. With tough phase of note-exchange being over, RBI should stop printing of rupees 2000 notes. RBI Deputy Governor B P Kanungo on 07.06.2017 revealed that 82.67 percent currency was remonetised till that date with figure having risen in later days. Such high figure of remonetisation crushed whole big ...

NFSA - Aasmaan se girey khajoor per atkey
Dear Editor, The Central Government introduced National Food Security Act (NFSA) in the country claiming to provide security of food to everybody. Since its implementation in the state of Jammu and Kashmir, the food distribution system has been put in jeopardy as the people do not get ration goods as they were getting before the launch of NFSA. The ration depots very oftenly have gone out of stock The Minister In charge, however, claim that the situation has improved a lot and online system is being introduced to bring transparency. The ground situation is that the quota of ration goods has been slashed substantially and prices have been pushed higher. The higher authorities of CA & PD reportedly stated that price of levy sugar has been raised further from Rs. 13.50 to Rs. 25 per kg an...

Farmers suicides on the rise alarmingly
Dear Editor, The Farmers who provide food and other eatables to the people of the whole country are being forced by the circumstances created by the policies by the successive governments to commit suicides which is on rise alarmingly leaving behind their families in utter distress. Around three lakh farmers have reportedly committed suicides so far. The peasants with small land holdings or no holdings at all are the worst victims of the age old system of exploitation, victimsation and high handedness of the rural money lenders. There are many factors which appears to be responsible for the situation like this. One major factor is debt taken from the money lenders, from Banks and cooperative societies for the purchase of seeds and fertilizers. Other factor may be the high cost seeds an...

DMRC should run Metro for 24 hrs
Dear Editor Delhi Metro Rail Corporation-DMRC should run Airport Express Metro throughout the day continuously for 24 hours day-night. It is very necessary because even many domestic flights take arrive after present closing hours of Airport Express Metro. Likewise check-in time for even departing domestic flights at times is earlier than start of Airport Express Metro service. Extension of Airport Express Metro Service round the day for 24 hours will provide much needed relief to air-passengers through economical, fast and comfortable metro-journey. However frequency of Airport express Metro service can be kept reduced in night-hours to save on running-expenses. —Subhash Chandra Agrawal, 1775 Kucha Lattushah Dariba, Delhi....

GST on sanitary-napkins
Dear Editor, It refers to petition filed at Delhi High Court challenging imposition of 12-percent GST on sanitary-napkins. While at a time, central government is spending and rightly so on doing away with defecation in public, promotion and awareness about sanitary-napkins should also be promoted by central government. At least there is no logic in imposing GST on such an item essential for body-hygiene. Petitioner in the court has pointed out that presently 88-percent of menstruating women in India do not have access to sanitary-napkins. It is noteworthy that free sanitary-napkins are provided to girl-students in schools on start of age for menstruating. It is therefore like taking money from one pocket of government to spend on providing free napkins, and then putting same money in ot...

Pay-Commission report to be applicable for MPs
Dear Editor, It refers to semi-justified demand of SP leader Naresh Agrawal in Rajya Sabha on 19.07.2017 that pay-commission reports should be applicable for Parliamentarians too. But at the same times all their allowances other than those applicable to bureaucrats should be abolished. Presently multiple types of special allowances available to Parliamentarians make their take-home package much more than salaries of government-officers. It is noteworthy that while Parliamentarians are allowed to earn and even earn from other sources also, government-servants are not allowed to do business. Even state-legislators and other elected representatives should also be paid salaries, allowances, perks, pensions and facilities in tune with pay-commission recommendations according to some set for...

Political crisis in Nagaland
Dear Editor, It refers to political crisis now in Nagaland where state-governor PB Acharya has desired state Chief Minister Shurhozelie Liezietsu to take a floor test and prove his majority in the face of TR Zeliang claiming he had more MLAs on his side. Such happenings have become quite common in Indian politics. To prevent Horse-Trading of MLAs through corrupt means, and to ensure full-terms of these state-assemblies, Chief Ministers in these two states should be elected through secret and compulsory votes of all members of respective legislative assemblies (MLAs) through Electronic Voting Machines (EVMs) on nominations signed by at least 34-percent MLAs. Members not participating in the democratic process of electing Chief Ministers may lose voting-right in the assembly even though r...

Exchange of vital information
Dear Editor, Marriage-relations were fixed usually amongst known families in ancient times. But with fast modernisation of society equipped with social networking, marriages are now-a-days fixed at times even through chatting without any personal meeting between marrying couple, what to talk about any meeting between family-members of two sides. Result is India following a western culture where spouses are changed like clothes. Unlike in ancient era when marriage-ties were considered life-long union, there is often lack of trust between husband and wife resulting in unhappy married and family life. Since one of the main reasons in such case is hiding or misrepresentation of income and financial-background from the other side, central government should consider idea of making it compulso...

Fratricide incidents on rise
Dear Editor, It is unfortunate that the incidents of fratricide are becoming frequent in the army and other para-military forces and that too over trivial matters. In the recent incident, one Major was shot dead by a jawan in Uri sector in Jammu and Kashmir the other day after they entered into an altercation as the former (Major) had objected to the use of phone by the latter while on duty. The past two decades have seen a steady rise in such incidents thus alarming the security set up and compelling them to devise ways and means to check the disturbing trend. Spiralling stress, frustration levels, exhausting patience, growing intolerance due to long stretched out conflict like situation particularly in J&K were figured out as major reasons behind rise in such incidents. The forces h...

Rail Fare subsidy
Dear Editor, It refers to Indian Railways considering idea of motivating affording people to give up subsidies available to various categories of people on rail-fares. Idea is not bad to offset losses to public-sector transporter. But there are little chances of affording people leaving privileged facility of subsidies voluntarily. Therefore best is to necessitate income-certificate for those who wish to avail subsidy-benefit for railway-services. It may be recalled that repeated appeals including from Prime Minister have not been effective for those with family-incomes above rupees ten lakhs in getting LPG-subsidy surrendered. However if rule would have been to provide LPG-subsidy only on giving affidavits regarding family-income, number of people availing LPG-subsidy would have ...

Tejaswy Yadav claims innocence
Dear Editor, It refers to Bihar Deputy Chief Minister clarifying that allegations about him are about the era when he was a child without even mustachio and beard, meaning thereby that all such acquisitions should be on the father who might have misused his position to grab and acquire wealth in name of his minor child. Such a statement makes cases against fodder-scam accused former Bihar Chief Minister even stronger. It is indeed funny that son through his kid-like statement is trying to confirm blame on father, unlike Shravankumar who did everything to serve his blind parents. Government-agencies including Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) and Enforcement Directorate (ED) deserve all compliments for treating viral of corruption in complete body-family rather than in separate body-...

Save middle-class traders
Dear Editor, It is now certain that central government is not going to look into practical difficulties faced by a totally irrational and non-practical procedure stipulated for otherwise ideal Goods and Service Tax-GST forced on the nation from 01.07.2017. At least central government should look into a manifold increased high fees now being charged by auditors, consultants and chartered-accountants, which can be done by making filing of GST-returns on quarterly basis at least in the initial phase of implementation of GST. Perception of Union Revenue Secretary that GST-returns can even be filed by a click through mobile-phones of kin of illiterate traders is far from a practical aspect, because with too many complexities in trade and industry and general government-perception of taking t...
