Increase in freight charges irks industry

Ludhiana, March 9
The local industry has condemned the hike in freight charges by the Ministry of Railways. It feels that 15 per cent to 37 per cent hike in steel, 18 per cent to 24 per cent in coal and 50 per cent in domestic iron ore will shake the state’s economy as it doesn’t have any natural resource of its own.

President of the Federation of Punjab Small Industries Associations, Badish Jindal, said: “Punjab sells 80 per cent of its production to other states. Thus products made in Punjab will become costlier for other states. The exports will suffer, as Punjab is a land-locked state. Due to this, the steel prices will increase by 2 per cent, which are already high in Punjab as compared to other states.”

Jindal said: “This step, it seems, has been taken to boost the economy of West Bengal as it boast of natural resources like steel and coal; is s nearer to the coast.”

The hike in freight of coal will cause the rise in the cost of power generation. This will have adverse impact on thermal power plants to be set up in Punjab. The increase in the cost of power generation will add to the manufacturing cost.

Jatin Gandhi, an exporter, said the hike in freight charges would adversely affect exports from the state.

Rural schools cry for attention
Broken chairs, no water say it all

Jagraon, March 9
Tall claims of the government fall flat when it comes to rural government schools. Schools in Bet area are in a state of neglect. The dearth of classrooms and adequate staff, broken chairs and blackboards, unavailability of clean drinking water and overgrown weeds are only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the schools in rural areas.

In most of the schools located in rural areas, especially in primary schools, only one or two teachers are left to handle all responsibilities, including the duties of clerical staff. In such a situation, the students are made to do odd jobs of Class IV employees.

The infrastructure in government schools at villages like Sadarpura, Sangatpura, Bangsipura, Janetpura, Tihara, Parjian Biharipur, Gorsian, Talwandi, Gidarwindi, Pamal, Ramghar, Dhapy and several others is literally falling apart.

While some of these schools lack infrastructure, others do not have teaching and non-teaching staff. Sources said the schools had not been renovated for years.

“The poor cannot afford education of their wards in private schools. In such a situation they are forced to enrol their children in government schools which lack facilities,” said Sohan Singh Salempuri, a social activist, who has been running from pillar to post to get the schools in rural areas upgraded.

Bet area has a thick population of people living below poverty line.

“The government’s claims of raising the educational standard of rural schools are baseless. The residents of these villages have been demanding improvement in infrastructure for several years but their pleas have not been heeded,” added Sohan Singh.

The state of affairs is such that some classrooms have collapsed while others are near collapsing. Due to which students are forced to study in the open whether it is summer or winter.

Block education officer Mohinder Singh said rural schools lacked infrastructure and adequate staff. “I have written to the education department a number of times to provide funds for upgrading infrastructure in rural schools, but the department has offered no assistance for improving the situation,” he stated.

On seeing the girls in trouble, some nearby shopkeepers came to their rescue and thrashed the accused. They then informed the police about the incident.

Demand for diesel cars goes up

Ludhiana, March 9
The demand for diesel cars has shot up in the past few weeks as consumers fear the imposition of a new tax on such vehicles in the budget. A proposed tax to the tune of Rs 80,000 is expected to be slapped on diesel cars to address the imbalance between these and the petrol versions caused by the widening price gap between the fuels.

A salesman at one of the car showrooms said it had seen a 30 per cent rise in monthly queries for diesel cars in the past few weeks. “The anxiety among buyers about the diesel tax has increased the demand of diesel variants. We have a waiting period of nearly six months,” said a salesman.

Mahindra’s Verito as well as SUVs like Xylo and Scorpio and Toyota’s Etios and Liva are in great demand these days. The tax fear has attributed to the rise in demand of these cars.

Rashmi, who recently bought a Renault Pulse, said they opted for the car as it had “ready delivery”.

“Earlier, we thought of buying Toyota Liva but since it had a long waiting period we opted for Pulse which had ready delivery. We do not want to waste money on tax due to which we changed our car choice. The immediate availability of the car has played a key role in our purchase consideration,” she stated.

There has been a perceptible change in the last three to four weeks in the buying decisions of consumers. Another salesman dealing in Tata cars said due to skyrocketing petrol prices, people were opting for diesel cars and this was the main reason behind the long waiting period. “Those, who were planning to buy a car in the next six months, have preponed their plans,” he added.

The day began with excitement for many as they were wished good morning with a friendly “gulal-teeka” and colour, while some were chased out of bed by the friendly splash of colours until they had the water and colour bash outdoors.

The boys went all out covering one another with colour from head to toe.

Ludhiana, March 9
For conserving water on Holi, residents of Canal View Apartments, HIG Flats, located in Block A of Bhai Randhir Singh Nagar celebrated Holi with flowers. This is not for the first time that the residents of these flats have made efforts for water conservation.

The depleting ground water table in the state has been a cause of concern for many years now, with many blocks of the state declared black zones by the state government. Even in the city, the ground water has gone down by a few feet and the environmentalists have been urging the government to take some steps in this regard.

Dr GS Hira, who retired as additional director research (Agriculture) from Punjab Agricultural University and is a resident of Canal View Apartments, HIG Flats, said that they had started celebrating Holi with flowers around five years ago.

“Earlier, the youth and children of our locality wasted several litres of water on holi. Besides, synthetic colours were also used on the occasion. That is why, one day, we decided that from now on we would not waste water or use synthetic colours for celebrating Holi. And now, be it senior citizens or youth, all of them gather and celebrate Holi by using flowers and flower petals ,” informed Hira.

Manmohan Singh, vice-president of Canal View Apartments Welfare Society said that ground water was fast depleting. “And our city residents waste lakhs of litres of water on Holi. People should keep it in their mind that if they waste water like this, the coming generations would suffer. I hope that the city residents take a cue from us and start contributing their own bit for this social cause,” said Manmohan Singh, a retired deputy excise and taxation commissioner.

For conserving water, the residents of this locality have also installed grass-paver tiles instead of interlocking tiles along their roads. With the help of a grass paver tile, one can save a lot of rainwater as the water seeps into ground and does not accumulate on the road.
