Maharashtra is home to most Internet subscribers in India: Survey

Quote:
The state's economic survey that was recently presented to the legislature revealed some interesting figures plotting just how Maharashtra is faring; and there is something that should prompt us to sit back and smile. According to the survey, Maharashtra has emerged as the topper, as far as the number of Internet subscribers in the country is concerned. The state, according to the survey report emerged as the topper with the largest Internet (of less than 256 kbps) subscriber base of 14.93 lakh and broadband (of greater than or equal to 256 kbps) subscriber base of 22.88 lakh in India, as on March 31, 2011. According to reports, the survey further pointed out that mobile number portability, too has been doing exceptionally well in the state. Maharashtra, in general and Mumbai, in particular has been seeing a steadfast increase in the number of porting requests. By the end of December 2011, roughly 33.36 lakh subscribers in the state opted for mobile number portability and subsequently submitted their porting requests, 10.23 lakh requests, out of which came from Mumbai alone.
The report states that the communications segment in the country has been flying high, owing to the immense contribution coming from the private sector. Reportedly, in Maharashtra, private sector operators, alone managed to hold onto 91.7 percent of wireless market share. PSU operators, BSNL and MTNL collectively hold over 8.3 percent of the market share. The survey, further acknowledges the latest entrants in the telecom space - 3G services and MNP. Cell phone and landline connections, too have been doing well for themselves in the state with the cell phone users per lakh population at the end of December 2011 being 94,181, while total number of landline connections at the end of December 2011 was 56.69 lakh.

I've removed Goa from the title since it's best to let the state threads grow independently. You can start a separate discussion thread for Goa here:

Maharashtra's midday meal scheme in tatters

Quote:
Congress corporator Ajanta Yadav’s act of offering top officials of the BMC’s education department substandard khichdi from municipal schools may be seen as a gimmick, but the larger issue that she has raised — that the midday meal scheme in Maharashtra is in tatters — should not be missed.

To understand the significance of the scheme, one needn’t look beyond Tamil Nadu, where it was first implemented by MG Ramachandran in 1982 and is a key reason that state is now near the top in most development indices. Contrast this with Maharashtra, where the need for such a scheme assumes greater significance considering the alarming rise in malnutrition and starvation deaths. Not long ago, a study revealed that only 12% of Maharashtra’s 70 lakh students got cooked meals in violation of the Supreme Court’s guidelines.

The midday meal scheme — at least as a concept — is one of the few areas where state intervention can leave a lasting impact and lift up the poor. Though it is a nationally instituted scheme with ample funds set aside by the Centre as well as the states, implementation has always been a problem, especially in Maharashtra, because local administrations, quite literally, make a meal of it.

The scheme is critical in more ways than one. Not only does it ensure that every child’s nutritional needs are taken care of, it also increases school enrolment. Maharashtra, once considered a ‘developed state’, is now facing a plethora of problems, chief among them being farmer suicides and malnutrition, thanks to the short-sightedness of its self-serving politicians. Failing to ensure that our children are fed well will nudge the state into an abyss, climbing out of which will be very difficult.

Maharashtra lets farmers bypass APMC

Quote:
PUNE: Maharashtra farmers can now sell their produce directly to anyone without the interference of APMCs. The state government has issued a notification for moving 30 fruits and vegetables out of APMC regulation. APMCs will not charge any cess on the excluded commodities. Farmers have for long demanded that the state tackle the hassles created by APMCs.

"Direct marketing of these commodities will help reducing the handling of fruits and vegetables. The commodities will remain in good condition ," said Kishor Toshnival, director (marketing), government of Maharashtra . Though Maharashtra has incorporated some provisions of the Model APMC Act in its state marketing act, organised retail has been facing difficulties in sourcing fruits and vegetables from farmers despite having direct marketing licences.

There were allegations that middlemen were forcing vehicles carrying vegetables to organised retail stores to go via Vashi APMC. The compulsion of selling agriculture commodities at APMCs has been one of the important reasons for the inflation in the prices of perishable commodities.

The average difference in wholesale and retail prices of fruits and vegetables is 40-50 %. The system also causes delays in the supply chain. Vegetable growers are happy about the development. "The removal of the APMC regulation will help farmers to get a better price for their produce while consumers can get their vegetables cheaper and fresher," said Sriram Gadhve, president, All India Vegetable Growers' Association.

Hopefully will bring down the prices a bit more.

Gutka ban proposal receives CMs nod
Quote:
There is absolutely no going back on the plan to ban gutka and paan masala now.On July 7,chief minister Prithviraj Chavan approved the food and drug administrations proposal in this regard.
Having already obtained the approval of deputy chief minister Ajit Pawar and completed other formalities,the proposal is now set to be introduced before the state cabinet.And with both the Congress and ally National Congress Party (NCP) publicly endorsing the ban,the cabinet nod is a mere formality.
The department had initiated a proposal in this regard on June 14.It was referred back to the department after senior officials felt that there was a need to invoke provisions of the Food Safety and Standards Act,2006,along with provisions under the Prevention of Food Adulteration Act,1954,to ensure that manufacturers and distributors of these products find it difficult to obtain a stay against implementation of the proposal.Accordingly,the department has now introduced Section 30(2) (a) of the 2006 Act,which empowers the food safety commissioner to prohibit manufacturing,storage,distribution and sale of food articles perceived to be against public interest for a period extending to a year.
The original proposal had justified the ban using rule 2.3.4 of the 1954 Act,which stipulates that use of nicotine and tobacco was banned in food products.Rule 3.1.7 of the same Act,which stipulates that the use of magnesium carbonate in limited proportion was only permitted in some fruit powders and syrups,was used to justify the ban on magnesium carbonate-laced paan masala.The fresh proposal has retained these provisions in the fresh proposal,while introducing the Food Safety provision afresh.In its edition on June 16,TOI had carried a news item providing details about the new provision.
After getting a nod from the chief secretary's office,the proposal was approved by the deputy chief minister Ajit Pawar on July 4 and finally the CM on July 7.
It could come up for discussion at the state cabinet meeting this week.Sources said that the models of the similar ban imposed in other
states including Kerala,Uttar Pradesh,Bihar,and Madhya Pradesh,among others were studied in details before drafting the finalproposal.Our aim is to present a watertight proposal which can stand its ground even if challenged on any grounds, a senior state official said.
An attempt to ban the products using provisions of the 1954 Act could not be successfully implemented.

Tankers exit Marathwada as conservation project delivers


CM's Pet Scheme Helps Dry Region Quench Its Thirst
The implementation of chief minister Devendra Fadnavis's Jalyukta Shivar scheme has resulted in most districts in droughtprone Marathwada not needing tankers at all or reducing their requirement of tankers for the supply of drinking water.
A few months after he took over the reins of the state in October 2014, Fadnavis launched the Jalyukta Shivar scheme to make the state drought-free by 2019. Under the scheme, Fadnavis proposed to make 5,000 villages free of water scarcity every year.The scheme envisages deepening and widening of stre ams, construction of cement and earth stop dams, work on nullahs and digging of farm ponds and removal of silt from lakes.

“It was an attempt to halt further depletion of underground water level and enhance it by undertaking new techniques with the involvement of villagers. Our aim is to ensure that in the next two years, all the 23,000 villages will be drought-free. We have proposed to utilise Rs 3,766 crore for the scheme. Besides budgetary provision, we expect to garner CSR (corporate social responsibility) funds,“ a bureaucrat said.

The bureaucrat said that for the effective implementation of the scheme, a high-level committee headed by the chief secretary had been set up. At the district level, an independent committee headed by the collector monitors the plan.

The bureaucrat said that against 4,640 tankers deployed on April 25 last year for providing drinking water to 3,586 villages and 5,993 hamlets, now only 669 tankers have been deployed for 886 villages and 2207 hamlets. “There is a marked improvement in drought-prone areas in Marathwada region,“ the official said.

In Aurangabad, 712 tankers were deployed last year kers were deployed last year against 256 this year, while in Parbhani, Hingoli, Nanded, Osmanabad and Latur, so far there was no need to deploy tankers. Last year, the department deployed 455 tankers in Jalna, 838 in Beed, 200 in Parbhani, 30 in Hingoli, 306 in Nanded, 373 in Osmanabad and 260 in Latur, hometown of former chief minster Vilasrao Deshmukh. In Latur, the situation was so bad that besides imposing prohibitory orders, Fadnavis and railway minister Suresh Prabhu had to intervene and provide drinking water by train.
