NHRC summons Delhi Education Secretary
Tribune News Service

New Delhi, July 6
Students terrorised by corporal punishment have reasons to cheer. Expressing concern over reports of corporal punishment in schools, the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) has directed the Education Secretary of the Delhi Government as well as the Director of Primary Education in the Municipal Corporation of Delhi to appear before it on July 30 to discuss the issue.

The commission has taken cognisance of a complaint filed on behalf of a 12-year-old student, who was subjected to corporal punishment by a teacher. The commission has said in a recent order that it would be “appropriate” to have a discussion with the senior officials of the Education Department on corporal punishment and the rules framed under the Delhi Education Act, 1973.

The commission had received a complaint alleging that Aarti Saroj, a student of Government Co-Educational Senior Secondary School, Mukherjee Nagar, was beaten by her class teacher and had received grievous injuries.

The commission, taking cognizance of the complaint, forwarded it to the Education Secretary for appropriate action. The Education Secretary submitted a report denying the allegations. After considering the reports received from the Education Secretary, the Additional DCP as well as the comments of the complainant on the report and the complaint of the father of the victim, the commission was prima facie satisfied that the student was administered corporal punishment by her teacher in the school on September 21, 1996.

The commission had earlier observed that though it did not propose to proceed in the case, an important and fundamental issue required its attention: Whether the Delhi School Education Act permits corporal punishment in schools or not? “The issue essentially concerns the human rights of the child and is in contravention of the international convention,” it said.

After analysing the provisions of the Delhi School Education Act, the commission concluded that teachers were not empowered to mete out any kind of corporal punishment. Only the head of the school could award corporal punishment.

The commission, in its order, directed the Education Secretary and the principal of the school to show cause why “immediate interim relief” under the Protection of Human Rights Act should not be awarded to the student.


Bansi Lal: Promises, promises, promises…
Tribune News Service

Faridabad, July 6
Former Chief Minister and Haryana Vikas Party supremo Bansi Lal has promised to reduce the power rates in the state if his party comes to power in the next elections.

Addressing a well-attended public rally at Hodal, about 50 km from here, today, Mr Bansi Lal said that the rates of power would be reduced for all categories of consumers. Reiterating his resolve to provide unemployment allowance to jobless educated youths, he said the INLD government had failed to fulfil the promises made in this regard.

Mr Bansi Lal announced that he would also take up the construction of the Mewat canal. During his tenure, he had sanctioned a Rs 200 crore plan to construct the canal but it had been shelved by the INLD government, he alleged.

He also expressed concern over the rise in the prices of fodder in southern Haryana. He was not against sending fodder to Rajasthan, but it should not be done at the cost of Haryana.

He did not favour imposition of house tax on self-owned dwelling units. However, the tax must be imposed if the building was used for commercial purposes or was leased out. The HVP leader, who was cheered many times during his speech, said that if his party returned to power, he would have all statues of Devi Lal removed within a month.

He also criticised the Congress for not taking interest in the completion of the SYL canal. He alleged that the local Congress leaders had failed to exert pressure on the party president, Ms Sonia Gandhi, to wield her authority in this regard.

He asserted that the HVP would provide residential plots to scheduled castes in the villages and ensure that unemployment allowance and old age pension were delivered by the seventh day of each month. He said VAT should not be imposed in Haryana until it was implemented throughout the country.

Gurgaon emerging major hub in north: Chautala

Gurgaon: Gurgaon has emerged as a major centre of industry in north India with 330 big and 9,300 small- and medium-scale units accounting for an annual turnover of Rs 35,000 crore and providing employment to 1.75 lakh people.

This was revealed by the Haryana Chief Minister Om Prakash Chautala while addressing the 34th annual session of Gurgaon Industrial Association on ‘Industry and Government — Prosperity through Partnership’ here last evening.

He said that a high-level committee, under the chairmanship of the Chief Secretary, had already been constituted to resolve pending issues of industrialists. At the same time, his government had also started “Sarkar Udmiyon Ke Naam,” on the lines of “Sarkar Apke Dwar,” to sort out the problems of industrialists at their door step.


Chautala to protect interests of commission agents

Sonepat: The Haryana Chief Minister, Mr Om Prakash Chautala, has reportedly assured representatives of the Gohana Foodgrain Dealers Association that the state government will not sacrifice the interests of thousands of ‘pucca’ commission agents for the sake of 15 rice exporters in the purchase of paddy during the coming procurement season.

According to the president of the association, Mr Ram Dhari Gupta, a delegation of the association recently met the Chief Minister and apprised him of the new proposals. The exporters would not be required to pay 4 per cent value added tax (VAT) if they buy paddy directly from the `kutcha’ commission agents. But VAT would be charged if the purchase was made through the ‘pucca’ commission agents as per the directions of the sales tax office, he said. The association informed the CM that no exporter would buy the paddy through the `pucca’ commission agents to save 4 per cent VAT. In this way, the ‘pucca’ commission agents in the state would be ruined, he said. OC


3rd Front wants upper caste quota in Capital
Tribune News Service

New Delhi, July 6
After Rajasthan, it is the turn of political parties in NCT of Delhi to demand reservation of jobs in the government for the upper castes.

The Lok Janshakti Party, which has floated the Third Front to contest the Assembly elections against the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and the Indian National Congress (INC), says 15 per cent of the government jobs should be reserved for the economically backward upper castes.

Chairman of Third Front and Vice President of Lok Janshakti Party Ramvir Singh Bidhuri says 10 per cent of the jobs should be reserved for the minorities also. “We have mentioned this in the charter of demands that was submitted to Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit,” Bidhuri told media persons.

Bidhuri was talking to reporters after courting arrest outside the residence of the chief minister. Bidhuri and the other office bearers of the Third Front were demonstrating against the recent hike in electricity tariff and acute shortage of drinking water. The Third Front, Bidhuri said, wanted the hike in tariff to be rolled back. “The upward revision of tariff burdens the economically challenged. The Government of NCT of Delhi should devise ways to cushion the burden or roll back the hike,” he said.

The charter of demands also demands that colonies that had come up illegally till March 2003 be regularised. “No development charge or penalty should be levied on the people living in them,” he said. He also sought a waiver of house tax for villages in the designated rural areas. Regularisation of properties that had come up beyond the Lal Dora limit in villages till March 2003 and setting up of a Walled City Development Board for the management of the Old City also found a mention in the charter of demands.

Engine snag delays train

Thousands of passengers remained stranded for at least two hours at Sonepat and nearby railway stations after the engine of 303 UP passenger train bound for Kalka developed a snag at the Badli railway station, about 40 km from here, last evening.

According to a report, train services on Sonepat-Delhi section of the Northern Railway remained disrupted when the engine of the passenger train developed a mechanical defect at Badli.

Cent per cent education still a pipedream
Our Correspondent

Noida, July 6
Over 7,000 children between six and 14 years of age in Gautam Budh Nagar district are not getting the benefit of school education. This information was provided on the basis of figures for the year 2003-04 released at a seminar on ‘Education for cent per cent children in Gautam Budh Nagar district’ on Saturday.

Presiding over the seminar in Government Inter College, Sector 12 here, the District Basic Education Officer, Shailender Singh Verma, said that a target to provide education to cent per cent children in the state had been set.

He said the authorities were trying to raise the percentage of girl students attending schools. There was a serious problem in rural areas where girl students could not continue their education after primary level because parents were reluctant to send them to schools in other villages, he said. Principal of Inter College R. S. Yadav said the percentage of women getting education was 54, which needed to be improved. The need to attract children of slums and rural areas to schools was also stressed at the seminar. The administration is making special efforts for the education of physically challenged children. Some NGOs and humanitarian organisations like Rotary Club, Noida Lok Manch etc have already come forward to help in the matter.

The president of the Rotary Club here, Narinder Kumar, said parents should motivate their children to attend schools. Greater Noida Rotary Club president M. N. Lari emphasised on the need to pay special attention to the education of children employed in commercial establishments.

JE bid to cheat Panchayat Dept of Rs 50,000

Rohtak: A junior engineer allegedly tried to cheat the Panchayat Department and pocket Rs 50,000 in the name of digging work of a village pond.

According to sources, the District Rural Development Agency (DRDA) had handed over Rs one lakh to the panchayat of Mokhra Khas village for digging ponds under the ‘food for work’ scheme last year. It is learnt, the digging work of a pond near a school had been completed in December last year and a junior engineer, Ram Kawar, had received Rs 20,000 for the said work.

Meanwhile, Mr Ram Kawar was shifted to some other village and another junior engineer took over. This engineer recently claimed Rs 49,000 for digging up the same site once again. He approached an officer of the Panchayat Department for the clearance of his bill. The officer concerned inspected the pond and found that it was filled with water and no digging work had been undertaken. He reported the matter to the higher authorities. OC


Liquor smuggling: It is a one-way street to Sonepat
Our Correspondent

Sonepat, July 6
Various brands of liquor are reportedly smuggled into Sonepat from Delhi through the 40-km stretch from Yamuna up to Kundal barrier on the Kharkhauda-Bawana-Delhi road. 

The liquor prices are higher in Sonepat than in Delhi. The difference in prices ranges between 40 and 80 per cent. A bottle of country liquor, which costs around Rs 40 in Delhi, is sold for nearly Rs 80 in Sonepat. Similarly, an Aristocrat Premium bottle is sold for Rs 180-Rs 200 whereas it costs only Rs 110 in Delhi (See picture).

Inquiries made by the NCR Tribune revealed that all kinds of transport — trains, maxicabs, jeeps and private cars — are used in smuggling liquor. The smugglers use different modus operandi. Sometimes, they use their own vehicles and offload the stock at different pre-determined points, mostly in villages. The liquor is then forwarded to the interested parties. Besides, there are between 35,000 and 40,000 daily commuters to Delhi from Sonepat, who buy liquor in the Capital for their personal consumption. Smuggling of liquor by private carriers is the biggest menace as far as the liquor contractors in Sonepat are concerned. In fact, the latter have been forced to reduce the prices of some of the brands to counter the menace. One such contractor, Ravinder Kaur, said that the government must take stern action against the smugglers; otherwise, the contractors in Sonepat and other neighbouring districts of Delhi would have to absorb hefty losses.

A large number of Delhi liquor shops are located on the border. Those adjoining Sonepat do a roaring business.

The Excise and Taxation Department in Sonepat reluctantly admits to some instances of liquor smuggling, but asserts that it was not on a large scale. A strict vigil was being maintained at the entry points by the department teams, it is claimed.

Tribune News Service

Faridabad, July 6
Power scenario in the state is complex. While the state government has been claiming improvement in the supply position, there are several issues that need to be addressed. Some of them were discussed at an Interactive meeting between the top authorities of the ‘Haryana Vidyut Prasaran Nigam’ (HVPN) and the representatives of industry organised by the Faridabad Industries Association (FIA) here on Saturday.

Maj-Gen (retd) B S Rathee, chairman of the HVPN, UHBVN and DHBVN, who was the chief guest at the special session admitted that the power department had been faced with several challenges. On the one hand, he said the Nigam faced an uphill task of recovering almost Rs 900 crore pending as power bills in the rural areas, the other task was to improve the supply (distribution) and overall functioning of the department.

He pointed out that there was a feeling in the rural areas that all the pending bills might be ‘waived off’ sooner or later and this, he said, had a factor proving a deterrent in regular payment of bills by a villager.

According to Gen Rathee, there were some priority areas on which he and his team had been focussing at present.

He said that the ‘customer relation’, checking the losses (thefts), improving manpower and recovering dues and bills were very important.

He said the present power supply would have been adequate if there had been no line loss or power theft.

He said to stop illegal ‘Kundi’ connections in residential and industrial areas, the department had started replacing open wires with insulated cables and putting meters on the transformers.

He said the urban consumers were very important for the HVPN and the Nigam had gone for measures to make the department consumer-friendly and responsive.

He said the starting of the ‘Bijli Sewa Kendra’ (BSK) at Faridabad was one step in the direction. He said the Nigam would take strict action against the employees or staff, that was found involved in irregularities and not attending the complaints of consumers.

Admitting that there was a shortage of field staff in the Nigam, he said recruitment against the vacant posts would soon be taken up.

Claiming that senior officials of the HVPN and DHBVN were ‘efficient’, he said there was a need to discipline the lower rung staff.

Some of the entrepreneurs present at the meeting raised the problems faced during getting new connections and rectification of faults, the HVPN chairman said that efforts were being made to improve the present infrastructure and the services of the Nigam.

About the complaints of breakdowns, loadshedding and the delay and corruption in the movement of files of applicant in the Nigam offices, the officials said that power supply situation had improved a lot in the past one year.
