I was watching TV 9 news just a few days back and there was a report of BJP sporting a lotus engraved ventilator it was in Raichur I guess.Those houses looked pretty bad.

RWH gaining ground in Kolar district

Quote:
Even as the farmers in the drought-hit district are mulling over sinking borewells to a depth of over thousand feet to fetch water, people have taken up rain water harvesting in two villages of the taluk.

Supported by Council for Advancement of Peoples Action and Rural Technology (CAPART), an agency of the Union Ministry of Rural Development, the project to educate people on imperative of taking up rain water harvesting is going at full steam in Seesandra and Seepur villages.

The two villages are selected for the project under which non-governmental organisations will be roped in to motivate people for construction of rain water harvesting structures and create awareness in the community. In the first phase, the work on construction of RWH structures in eight houses of Seepur has begun. Selected families are being trained in maintaining such structures and testing the quality of the water so obtained. The responsibility has been given to Buddha Rural Development Society.

In the second phase, rain water harvesting structures will be constructed in ten houses of Seesandra, one school and one community hall.

Use of environment-friendly technology is the notable feature of the project. In most of the cases, storage tanks are constructed using cement and bricks. But here, ferocement is being utilised which do not cause harm to the environment. The construction labourers are also being trained in this new technology.

The project is being implemented with community participation. While the Union government will bear the 80 pc of the cost incurred, the beneficiary family will have to bear the rest of 20 pc. Roping in the community is expected to ensure success of the project.

“The rain water harvesting structures installed at government schools under Suvarna Jala Yojane are not maintained well.

However, it is an act worth emulating that people of Seepuru and Seesandra have come forward to take up the task,” H S Chowdappa, the secretary of Buddha Rural Development Society told Deccan Herald.

They too have realised that only rain water conservation can guarantee water for future, he said.

Nabard sanctions Rs 70 cr to state under RIDF

Quote:
The National Bank for Agriculture and Rural Development (Nabard) has sanctioned Rs 69.89 crore for infrastructure development as the 15th tranche of the Rural Infrastructure Development Fund (RIDF XV) to the Karnataka government. With this, the cumulative sanctions under the present tranche (RIDF XV) to the state have reached Rs 642.36 crore.

This includes Rs 19 crore for 31 minor irrigation projects, Rs 14.60 crore for construction of six government industrial training institutes, Rs 35.56 crore for 69 rural road and 35 bridge projects and Rs 73.14 lakh for the establishment of four rural markets, Venkatesh Tagat, chief general manager, Karnataka region said.

The 31 minor irrigation projects to be implemented by the state water resources department in the nine districts of Bijapur, Bagalkot, Koppal, Gulbarga, Haveri, Dharwad, Davanagere, Chitradurga and Chikkaballapur, on completion, would provide irrigation facilities to 1,837.42 hectares. The projects will also generate recurring employment of 100 jobs per year and non-recurring employment of 667,000 mandays.

The road and bridge projects will provide all-weather roads, to the extent of 184.80 km, to 92 villages, 27 rural marketing centres, and two pilgrimage places. This includes construction of bridge on Asangi-Alur road in Bagalkot district and construction of a bridge on the Madappadi-Khadyaru road in Dakshina Kannada district and one tourist centre, spread across 25 districts in the state.

Financial inclusion to cover villages of over 2,000 people

Quote:
The State Level Bankers’ Committee (SLBC) has initiated steps to begin a renewed drive to achieve financial inclusion in the state by opening “no frills” accounts for families that do not have a bank account. It has set a target to bring all villages in Karnataka with a population of more than 2,000 under the banking fold by March 31, 2010, a senior banker said.

“All households across all villages in the state which have been issued photo identity cards by the state government will be covered under the financial inclusion programme with the opening of “no frills” accounts by March 31, 2010,” Basant Seth, CMD, Syndicate Bank told the SLBC meeting, here on Monday.

Seth, who is also the chairman of SLBC, said all families who do not have a bank account on the basis of the data from the department of food and civil supplies would be brought under the new programme. In order to focus on the quality of financial inclusion, at least 50 per cent of all the “no frills” accounts existing as on March 31, 2009, would be made active by March 31, 2010.

As another step towards financial inclusion, he said, lead district managers have been instructed to constitute a sub-committee of the district consultative committee to draw up a roadmap by March 2010 to provide banking services through a banking outlet in every village having a population of over 2,000, by March 2011.

In order to step up financial inclusion programme, the banks should make use of technology-based banking models, including Business Correspondents, Business Facilitators.

He, however, advised all banks to not just focus on opening bank accounts, but focus on operationalising such accounts by allowing a small overdraft, issuing general credit card and providing remittance and insurance facility. All banks should at least provide a small overdraft of Rs 500 or some micro insurance/remittance to the “no frills” account holders.

Seth also suggested all banks in the state make all efforts to issue at least 200,000 smart cards by February-end 2010 so that the electronic benefit transfer system (EBT) can be launched across the state on the basis of the experience gained in implementing the pilot projects.

Presently, two pilot projects are underway to implement the EBT system on a ‘One district, One bank’ model in three districts by State Bank of Mysore in Chamarajanagar, Axis Bank in Dharwad and Vijaya Bank in Mandya. The lead banks are implementing other pilot projects in Bellary, Chitradurga and Gulbarga districts for payment of social security pensions and wages under the Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme.

Based on the experience, the government will take a decision to implement the better of the two models for extending EBT scheme to the entire state, Seth added.

Rural BPO: Karnataka keeps IT biggies away

Quote:
Through the initiative the government plans to serve two purposes - to generate employment in the rural areas and to encourage young entrepreneurs
Quote:
BANGALORE, INDIA: The Rural BPO program started by the Government of Karnataka (GoK) would not see any direct participation from the established global BPO players as application criterion says that the company should be led by an independent party and not a branch office of the lager player.

Speaking to CIOL, Ashok Kumar C. Manoli, Principal Secretary to Government, Department of Information Technology, Biotechnology and Science & Technology, said through the initiative the government plans to serve two purposes; first is to generate employment in the rural areas and second to encourage young entrepreneurs.

"We would want to see more Narayana Murthys and Premjis coming out for India's development," he said.

Earlier companies like Wipro and Infosys had talked opening up rural BPOs. Last year, Infosys BPO Limited, a subsidiary of Infosys, had signed an agreement with the Andhra Pradesh government to set up rural BPO centers in 22 districts of the state.

According to Manoli, Karnataka follows a different pattern, and the partnership under question is most likely a practice of corporate social responsibility. Perhaps, this is why it could happen in Andhra Pradesh rather than Karnataka.

"Big IT companies are not allowed to open up their branches under this program. This is a rural BPO, working under independent and individual owner, the entrepreneur. We do not want the major to grow. Instead we intend to help the small firm to get bigger." However, he added, "The major IT companies could have certain collaboration with the participating company. But the registered company needs to be led by an entrepreneur."

Elaborating on the initiative he said that the government would play a role of the catalyst. It would introduce the proposal, provide financial and infrastructural (like the computers, chairs, rooms) support to the company.

"As the objective of the scheme is to set up BPO Centres, the applicants must examine the business opportunities in the BPO Sector before submitting the application. No assistance will be provided by KBITS or the Government in getting business for running the BPO Centre or providing employment."

He informed that the government is also following a 'touch-me-not' policy, so even the choice of people (graduate/ above, women/men-only) would be at the company's discretion. Talking about the basic regulations, Manoli informed that the BPO should employee people from village, should be at least 100 seater and should cover one hobli (cluster of four to five villages), with less than one lakh population.

Earlier, Manoli reported that financial support would be of Rs. 5,000 per employee as subsidy to meet the cost of building rentals and Internet connectivity – Restricted to first two years of the operation of each unit. This would be offered even to such BPO units, which set up exceeding 100 seats. The financial support will however be offered in multiples of 100 seater and not in fraction.

Starting with the first such initiative at Srirangapatna in Mandya District, in a span of six to seven months, Karnataka has helped open around 15 centers, with another four on their final stages and would start by end of this month.

People in rural areas to get healthcare on the doorstep

Quote:
* Mobile mini-hospital facility will be introduced: Sriramulu
* Deputy Commissioner told to look into problems at the Kodagu District Hospital
* Vacant posts of doctor at the hospital to be filled by the month-end

VIP visitor: Health Minister B. Sriramulu speaking to a patient in the District Hospital in Madikeri on Tuesday.

Madikeri: People in rural areas of the State will soon get medical services on the doorstep with the introduction of mobile “mini-hospitals”, Health Minister B. Sriramulu said here on Tuesday.

He was addressing presspersons at the District Hospital here after visiting several wards and interacting with patients.

The mobile medical services could be availed of by dialling 104, Mr. Sriramulu said.

The facility will benefit people in remote areas who do not have access to medical services.

Besides, the Arogya Raksha health insurance scheme was being implemented on a pilot basis in the districts of Bellary, Koppal, Raichur, Bidar and Yadgir, he said. Under the scheme, over 16 lakh poor people from below the poverty line families could avail themselves of treatment for nearly 400 diseases in speciality hospitals up to an extent of Rs. 2 lakh.

This scheme had proved that the Bhartiya Janata Party Government had concern for the poor in the State, he said.

Chief Minister B.S. Yeddyurappa would be requested to earmark Rs. 300 crore in the next budget for the scheme, the Minister said.

The Arogya Kavacha scheme in which ambulances could be called by dialling 108 was being implemented well, Mr. Sriramulu said. Over 1.2 crore calls had been made to 108 so far and 3.02 lakh lives had been saved, the Minister said.

The Minister warned that if any doctor was found prescribing medicines for purchase from outside the hospital, they would be suspended.

When presspersons told the Minister about problems in the District Hospital, Mr. Sriramulu asked the Deputy Commissioner to look into them. Problems such as corruption, dysfunctional ultrasound scanner, and lack of intensive care unit (ICU), and dialysis and telemedicine facilities were brought to his notice by presspersons.

The Minister, responding to Madikeri MLA M.P. Appachu Ranjan’s request, agreed to fill vacant posts of doctor at the District Hospital by the month-end.

Construction of new houses begins in T.S. Kudlur village

Quote:
* The foundation stone for the project was laid in October last
* 650 new houses to be built in T.S. Kudlur
* Each housing unit to have 15 x 12 sq.ft. built-up area

T.S. Kudlur (Bellary district): The much-touted construction of houses for people who live on the banks of the Tungabhadra and Vedavati and are frequently affected by floods has finally begun.

Although the foundation stones were laid in October 2009, construction has begun only in T.S. Kudlur village. Preliminary work, such as layout marking and work on roads, has been taken up in the other villages.

The State Government, based on a report submitted by the district administration, decided to shift 18 villages — 16 in Sirguppa taluk and two in Hadagali taluk — elsewhere. Under the stewardship of Minister for Tourism and district in-charge G. Janardhan Reddy, several mine owners volunteered to help, and 6,580 houses were to be constructed as part of a permanent rehabilitation programme.

Mr. Reddy laid the foundation stones for the construction of houses on October 28 last at T.S. Kudlur and Matur villages, and promised to allot the new houses to the people within six months.

In T.S. Kudlur, mining company B.M.M Ispat had taken up construction of 650 houses. Each house would have a built-up area of 15ft x 12ft. Each house would be built on a 30ft x 50ft site, Deputy Commissioner B. Shivappa told The Hindu. Each house was estimated to cost Rs. 1.24 lakh, he said. Space had also been reserved for schools, common harvesting areas, burial grounds and hospitals.

Enquiries revealed that the company had planned to construct four houses with common walls and at an estimated of Rs. 1.15 lakh a unit.

Following objections from the people, who demanded separate houses with RCC roofing, the company was persuaded to agree to change the design and also shoulder the additional cost.

Roads and drains would be constructed by the Government.

Foundation stone laid for housing scheme

Minister skips official programme for this
Quote:
Belgaum: Minister for Housing Katta Subramanya Naidu laid the foundation stone to kick start construction work on a housing scheme in Santhibastwad village of Belgaum taluk on Thursday.

The Minister skipped his official programme to lay the foundation stone to start the work on 1,000 houses under the Rajiv Gandhi Awaas Yojana in Mannur village near here following angry protest by the villagers on Wednesday.

The villagers have opposed the acquisition of 10 acres of land, the only open space in the village used for grazing cattle, for the scheme.

Among those present included Sanjay Patil, MLA (Belgaum Rural) and Deputy Commissioner J. Ravishankar. Speaking on the occasion, Mr. Naidu said that the Government had planned to construct houses under a pilot scheme covering both rural and urban centres in the State.

Under the scheme, houses will be constructed at a cost of Rs. 65,000 each in rural areas and Rs. 1.25 lakh in urban centres.

In Santibastwad, 60 houses spread over 3.5 acres of land on the outskirts of the village will be constructed by Rajiv Gandhi Housing Corporation in three or four months from now.

Satellites to regulate water flow in canals

Quote:
BANGALORE: Very soon the water usage and discharge in the reservoirs and canals in the state might be regulated with the help of the information generated from satellites.

An experiment to monitor relevant parameters in left bank Canal of the Ghataprabha River using satellites has proved to be successful. This sort of experiment is the first of its kind in the country.

The Central Water Committee and Union Ministry of Water Resources have evinced keen interest in studying this experiment.

A sensor that transmitted data to a satellite was placed in the canal. The sensor was programmed to generate data regarding the depth of water in the canal and the speed of the water flow.

The data generated through the experiment helped hydorlogists and engineers to calculate the amount of water that is released on the basis of the width and depth of the canal. With this information in hand, officials can direct the employee to regulate the water discharge depending on the situation. The quantity of water that has to be released in different canals can also be calculated using this technology.

One of the officials from the Karnataka Niravari Nigama Limited (KNNL) said: “Earlier we used to calculate the quantity of water that we have released after assessing the decrease in the water level in the dams. That procedure takes several days. But now we can get the details immediately.

This will help us to minimise the water wastage and to direct the water to the areas to which it is not supplied.”

She would also meet her devotees during the visit.

Amrutagitananda Puri of the Mutt said that it had been involved in various such relief and rehabilitation activities not just in India but also in foreign countries.

Referring to the floods of 2009 that rendered many people in the state homeless, he said that they were rehabilitating four hamlets in Raichur district by constructing 700 houses.

“The first phase of 100 houses is completed and the houses will be given out when Amma is in the city. The other houses will be complete before the start of the rainy season,” Puri said. The 100 houses were completed in 20 days and for the construction, help had been sought from leading architects and engineers, he said.

The houses are in Dongramapur and Atkur villages bordering Andhra Pradesh.

He said that the houses for the flood victims, which measure 250 square feet each, were built at a cost of Rs 1.45 lakh each and the entire project was estimated to cost Rs 10 crore.

Govt to grant 15 acres for hospital

Quote:
Bangalore, Feb 17, DHNS:Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa on Wednesday announced that 15 acres in Ramasandra in Kengeri would be provided to Matha Amritanandamayi Math for construction of a hospital for the poor. The Math has built 100 houses.
Speaking at a function organised in Bangalore, the Chief Minister, who formally received the keys for 100 houses constructed by the math at flood-affected Dongarampur village in Raichur, said the Government will also provide grant of Rs five crore for the hospital.

The math had taken up construction of houses to the villagers of Kuravakuda, Mankigaddi, Karavakala, Agrahara besides Dongarampur in Raichur who lost their dwellings in the devastating floods last year. Yeddyurappa said 100 houses had been constructed in a record time of 20 days under the guidance of ‘Amma’. He said the commitment shown by “Amma” should be an inspiration for other donors who had committed to construct houses under the Asare scheme. The Chief Minister said each house constructed by the math cost Rs 1.45 lakh.

CM to go ahead with Dandavati project
Quote:
Bangalore, Feb 20, DHNS:Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa has declared that he will go ahead with the Dandavati irrigation project despite resistance to its implementation.

Speaking to reporters in Bangalore on Saturday, the CM said those who are against development have been opposing the project. “Deve Gowda and Bangarappa unnecessarily held protest against the project in Soraba on Friday. Unmindful of the agitations, I will implement the project,” he added.

“Former CM Bangarappa had earlier requested the government in writing to implement the Dandavati project. It is surprising that he is opposing it now,” Yeddyurappa said.
