High resolution satellite launch in Oct

Chandigarh, September 21
While India is all set to launch an indigenous high resolution satellite next month, the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO), in a novel experiment, is planning to use its polar satellite launch vehicle (PSLV) to inject satellites into geosynchronous orbits. Talking to TNS here today, the Director of ISRO’s Applied Optics Area, Dr T.G.K. Murthy, said that an earth imaging satellite designated as the Indian Remote Sensing Technology Experimental Satellite (IRS-TES) is scheduled to be launched in October.

Stating that the satellite would have a resolution of one metre, Dr Murthy added that this satellite would considerably enhance our imaging capabilities. The IRS series already in orbit have a resolution of five meters and above. This implies that while the present series can provide image of camps and settlements through a large field of view, a satellite with a resolution of one metre can pick up and identify objects of the size of car. Smaller objects can also be identified with image enhancing technology, which is already available in the country.

It may be pertinent to mention here that following the failure to detect intrusions by Pakistani intruders in the Kargil conflict in 1999, which led to a limited border conflict, the armed forces have been clamouring for a high resolution satellite for intelligence gathering.

ISRO is also working to use the PSLV to launch satellites into geosynchronous orbits. PSLV, which is the launch vehicles for the IRS series, is used to inject satellites into orbits 800 - 900 kms above the earth, while geo-synchrous satellites orbit at a height of 36,000 km. This is the first project of its kind in the world.

Dr Murthy said that this could be achieved by reducing the weight of the satellite to less than two tonnes to enable the PSLV to carry it. Satellites in geosynchronous orbits like the INSAT series are used for communication as well as weather forecast. Dr Murthy said that the geo-synchrous satellite to be launched by PSLV would have only one of the functions, that is weather forecasting, to reduce its weight. The proposed launch for the single function satellite for weather forecast is stated to be the second or third quarter of next year.

While India has been supplying images and data derived from the IRS satellites to other countries, it has, in addition, supplied space sub-systems and critical components to several European and Asian countries worth about Rs 40 crore. Dr Murthy added Japan recently procured solar sails from ISRO worth about Rs 5 crore.



MC in financial mess, needs Administration’s help

Chandigarh, September 21
The cash strapped Municipal Corporation of Chandigarh (MCC) may further sink into financial mess if the Chandigarh Administration does not come to its rescue immediately. Sources said it would not be in a position to even give salaries to its employees, if the prevailing financial crisis continued for some more time.

Two days back, the Mayor Ms Harjinder Kaur, had called on the UT Administrator to seek an immediate grant of Rs 20.5 crore to cope with the financial crisis. The Administrator reportedly assured her that he would find a way out to help the MC. The matter is also likely to be deliberated in the next meeting of the vital Finance and Contract Committee on September 24.

Sources further reveal that certain unforeseen liabilities, which were not budgeted have added to the woes of the MC. For instance, it has to pay a sum of Rs 3.25 lakh as dearness allowance (DA) to its daily wagers from January 1, 1996 to July 31, 2001 in accordance with the directions of the Supreme Court and the Punjab and Haryana High Court. A sum of Rs 1 crore is to be paid to to the families of 250 deceased employees, arrears to the tune of Rs 99,000 to the ITI diploma holders tubewell operators working in Public Health circle due to grant of higher pay scales. Besides this, the MC has to bear an additional expenditure of Rs 1.04 crore to comply with the directions of the High Court regarding the installation of new water meters, a sum of Rs 70,000 due to increase in pension contribution, another Rs 3.3 crore for the maintenance and operation of tubewells, water works including Kajauli water work, and a sum of Rs 2.14 crore is to be refunded to the UT Electricity Department as electricity dues from February 22, 2001 to March 31, 2001.

Sources add if MC does not make these payments within the stipulated time, it may have to face contempt of court. Hence, the MC has to perforce make these payments.

Since the coffers of MC are empty and it has failed to generate its own financial resources to meet these unforseen expenditures, it has to look upto to the Administration for help.

A senior official of the Union Home Ministry, Mr P.D. Shenoy, had announced a grant of Rs 5 crore to enable the MC tide over the crisis, but this amount is yet to be received by the MC. The Assistant Commissioner-I, Ms Ashok Vashistha, has only a few days back in a letter written to the UT Administration demanded that the promised grant should be made available to the MC at the earliest. This money will be used to complete all pending developmental works in the city.


Housefed may get land for flats soon
Tribune News Service

Chandigarh, September 21
The Chandigarh State Federation of Cooperative House Building Societies (Housefed), a conglomeration of cooperative housing societies, has demanded that it should be allotted land for the construction of flats for allotment to members of the public on the pattern of similar schemes functioning in Punjab and other states across the country.

The Board of Directors of Housefed have passed a resolution which will be forwarded to the Chandigarh Administration as well as the National Cooperative Housing Federation. The Housefed will also send the same demand for incorporation into the Model Coop Housing Societies Act which is being framed by the Union Ministry of Agriculture and Cooperation.

The idea to seek land came up at the Housefed here after a three-member delegation comprising the Chairman, Mr Sunil Parti, the Finance Director, Mr Bhupinder Singh Badheri, and the Executive Director, Mr Surjit Chaudhary, was a party to discussions at a national-level meeting held in Goa last week.

The scheme to allot land to Housefed for the construction of flats is in vogue in Punjab and also in Andhra Pradesh and Maharasthra. Firstly, such a scheme allows for flats at competitive rates as Housefed is a cooperative movement and also brings in revenue for the Housefed. In the past two weeks Punjab Housefed has offered flats at highly competitive rates in Ludhiana while builders have been charging much more.

In Chandigarh, Housefed is just a loaning agency for member co-operative housing societies. Allotment of land for individual plots and also for multistoreyed flats in the southern sectors has been made through cooperative societies.

Housefed will be seeking land in the upcoming Sectors like 54, 55 or 56. Since land will be allotted in these sectors for prospective Chandigarh Housing Board (CHB) schemes and the Housefed will be seeking a project for itself. The Chairman, Mr Parti asserted, ‘‘We will be competitive and give another alternative to affordable housing for the salaried class and also for the self-employed.’’ 


Driven by hunger, undertrial raises slogans
Kiran Deep

Chandigarh, September 21
In an interesting case an undertrial has raised hue and cry over not being provided food at makeshift jail in the District Courts here today. The accused, Idrish Khan, reportedly raised slogans in demanding food and other facilities in the afternoon. The police tried to stop the undertrial, but when he continued to raise slogans they produced him before the magistrate.

The accused was produced in the court of UT Judicial Magistrate at about 4 pm.The accused prayed before the court that he was feeling hungry and should be provided tea or food in the makeshift jail. Later, he was sent to judicial remand. As per the jail rules the prisoners are provided food twice a day — in the morning and evening.

The city police had arrested the accused along with four others on August 12 and registered a case under Sections 153(A), 153(B), 295(A) and 120-B of the Indian Penal Code at the Sector 34 police station.

Sources informed that undertrials have been facing various basic problems at the makeshift jail. The UT District and Sessions Judge and Chief Judicial Magistrate had inspected the makeshift jail on August 19 on the complaint of an undertrial about drainage problem in the jail. The undertrial had complained that the water was collecting in the wards because there was no outlet. The undertrial had also prayed to provide pots in the wards of the makeshift jail.

The Supreme Court in the case Sunil Batra-II vs Delhi Administration observed that “ prisoners are also persons and they do not lose all their basic rights because they are put in jail. When their rights either under the Constitution or under any other law are violated, the writ power of the Supreme Court or the High Court should run to their rescue. Whether inside prison or outside, a person shall not be deprived of his freedom except by method “right, just and fair”. The court has a continuing responsibility to ensure that the constitution purpose of the deprivation is not defeated by the jail administration.

The court also stated that the Prison Act was in need of total overhaul and correction and rehabilitation should be made the objective of the punishment. The jail authorities must keep grievance deposit boxes in prominent places and the prisoners should be given access to them. The District Magistrate should open them periodically and take suitable remedial action.
