कमिश्नर प्रणाली को राज्यपाल की मंजूरी

Quote:
राज्यपाल शिवराज पाटील ने जयपुर और जोधपुर में पुलिस कमिश्नर प्रणाली लागू करने को हरी झंडी दे दी है। राजभवन से इस प्रस्ताव की फाइल सोमवार को सरकार के पास आ गई। माना जा रहा है कि कमिश्नर प्रणाली 1 जनवरी 2011 से लागू हो जाएगी।

इससे पहले राज्य सरकार अधिसूचना जारी करने के साथ ही इस पद पर नियुक्ति की प्रक्रिया को भी पूरा कर लेगी। पुलिस महकमे में कमिश्नर पद की नियुक्ति को लेकर कवायद शुरू हो गई है। गौरतलब है कि राज्य में कानून व्यवस्था सुधारने और अपराध कम करने के लिए यह प्रणाली प्रयोग के तौर पर पहले जयपुर और जोधपुर में लागू की जा रही है। इसमें पुलिस को अधिक अधिकार मिल जाएंगे। पुलिस एक्ट 2008 में प्रावधान किया गया था कि 10 लाख से अधिक की आबादी वाले शहर में कमिश्नर प्रणाली होगी।

'Oil' is well with Raj revenue gains

Quote:
Jaipur: Oil production is helping Rajasthan earn more revenue than was expected. At the beginning of this financial year, the state government had projected a revenue of Rs 700 crore from oil production in Barmer.

The government has already earned more than Rs 1,000 crore royalty from oil production between April and December 2010.

Officials in the petroleum and mines department said that the expectations were based on the projected crude oil production during the current fiscal and the overall revenue generated from mining in the state.

"The government had generated revenue of more than Rs 1,400 crore from mining in the last fiscal [2009-10]," a government official said.

Since the government had estimated an additional Rs 700 crore revenue from oil production in 2010-11, the government expected that oil revenue will alone account for one-third of the total revenue from mining in the state.

But, the latest revenue chart has beaten all projections with its unprecedented growth rate. "In the first three quarters of the present fiscal, our earning from mining [other than petroleum] has been Rs 1,200 crore," petroleum minister Ram Lal Jat said. The oil revenue during the same period has been around Rs 1,020 crore, he added.

With current revenue from oil production, the government believes that the oil production will account for half of the total mining revenue in the state in future.

Officials said that the ongoing oil extraction at the Barmer-Sanchore basin would yield up to 1.75 lakh barrels of oil every day when the production reaches its peak.

At its peak, the oil production in Rajasthan would then account for 20 per cent of the total oil drilled in the entire country, officials said. Oil production in Barmer had officially started in Rajasthan last year.

Despite the generous revenue from oil production in the state, the government's demand for an oil refinery in Rajasthan is yet to be implemented by the Union government.

Chief minister Ashok Gehlot had included the demand in his budget speech realising the importance of a refinery in the state.

Several national and foreign oil exploration companies are involved in oil exploration and production activity in Rajasthan.

Besides, Scotland-based Cairn India, an Italian company ENI, Reliance Industries and Focus Energy are working on the oil sites in the state.

Rajasthan lift first Ranji Trophy

Quote:
Rajasthan have claimed their first ever Ranji Trophy on the basis of their 33-run first-innings lead over Baroda. The championship caps an improbable season that began in the Plate Division, and saw Rajasthan knock out their nemisis, and defending champions, Mumbai in the quarters before ousting Tamil Nadu in the semis to set up a finals clash with Baroda.

Ashok Menaria and Rashmi Parida were the batting heroes, with Parida claiming the Man of the Match award for his two half-centuries, while Menaria made a crucial hundred in the second innings, sharing a 165-run partnership with Parida after Rajasthan had slumped to 61-4.



Finally after being in the finals for 8 times Rajasthan has finally managed in the 9th go!

Now, CCTVs to keep an eye on cops

Quote:
Jaipur: Under the newly introduced commissionerate system, all the police stations under four police districts of Jaipur would have Closed-circuit television (CCTV) cameras to monitor onduty officers. The senior officers have chalked out a plan to keep vigil on the activities of duty officers especially while they deal with people.

According to the sources, under the commissionerate system, senior officers would ensure that police don't act as autocrats and misuse their powers.

Jaipur police commissioner BL Soni while talking to DNA on Monday, said, "CCTV cameras would be installed in chambers of duty officers so that they entertain complainants. Likewise, the camera recordings would also give an insight to the senior officers on the activities in police stations."

Soni further added that a duty officer is the first person a complainant meets and if duty officers gives people right advice and listen to their complaints seriously, many cases and issues such as family disputes can be resolved.

"I think the way a duty officer behaves with a common man at police stations actually shows how the particular police station works. We would ensure the duty officer do not take complainants for granted and listen to complaints patiently," Soni said.

The Jaipur police is also planning to install CCTV cameras and TVs at police stations in crowded areas of the city especially in the Walled City.

"There are many police stations, which are situated in crowded markets and are close to the multiplexes and shopping malls. CCTV cameras and TVs would also be installed in such areas," a senior police officer said.

Now, smart cards to replace ration cards

Quote:
Jaipur: Getting two different gas connections on one ration card will not be possible now. The food and civil supplies department has given a go ahead to the smart card-type family ration cards after old ration cards expired on January 1.

There are 1.23 crore people holding ration cards in the state. The old cards will be renewed in the coming months by the department.

Jaipur alone has 12.30 lakh ration card holders.

"The chief minister has given the go-ahead for the project and our officials will now expedite the process to issue smart ration cards," food and civil supplies minister Babu Lal Nagar said.

According to the officials, a special software with a swipe machine will be given to PDS (public distribution shops) shop owners and the data related to sale of food items and kerosene will be recorded in servers of the department.

"The new system is aimed at plugging the loopholes in the public distribution system across the state. Once the project is implemented, the data regarding every PDS shop will be available online for scrutiny by the officials at various levels," a senior department official said.

Last year, 6,436 metric tonnes of wheat was distributed among the above poverty line (APL) families in the state while the BPL families got 93,210 metric tonnes of wheat through the PDS, the official added.

Besides acting as identity and residence proof, the new smart ration cards is expected to iron out several other anomalies.

"People get their other documents made by using ration cards as identity proof. The new card will make it difficult for people to furnish false documents," advocate Santosh Jaiman said.

Road rules to be a part of secondary syllabus now

Quote:
Jaipur: Students will now have to learn about traffic rules as a part of their secondary curriculum. The Rajasthan Board of Secondary Education (RBSE) has approved a proposal for inclusion of traffic education in the school syllabus on Tuesday.

"The education department will finalise the details of traffic education. The proposal for its inclusion in the secondary education has already been cleared by the government," said a senior government official.

The Rajasthan police department had previously put forward a proposition to the state government to include traffic education as a part of school curriculum as has been done in Punjab. On Tuesday, chief minister Ashok Gehlot stressed on the need for educating students over road safety. Traffic experts will now help the education board to draft a new course for students. According to the initial proposal, put forward by the police department traffic education should be imparted from classes 1 to 5.

"The young generation must be aware of the traffic rules and should be made aware of the rules to be followed on road and while driving. This will not only help to reduce accidents but also to ease traffic congestion on road," said a police officer.

Majority of the cases received by the hospitals pertain to road accidents. Almost 80 per cent of complex bone injuries being reported at the city hospitals are due to road accidents.

Several private schools in the state have already included traffic education with the help of senior retired officials of transport and traffic departments. The new course is expected to be included in the RBSE schools from the next session and would also require training of the teachers.

I wonder if this might be a wasteage of govt expenditure especially considering UID is on its way - one of its missions is to rationalize the PDS system effectively!! Multiplication of such cards (though this one is better than the easily forgeable ration card!!) might just increase confusion about which forms of IDS matter more and which ones to use when and so on..

Central univarsity plans special study of Rajasthani

Quote:
JAIPUR: Central University of Rajasthan to set up a Centre of Indian Languages to document, preserve and focus on research in Indian languages.

"The department of cultural studies will begin from the forthcoming session and it will have a special focus on Rajasthani languages and culture," said vice-chancellor of the Central University of Rajasthan Professor M M Salunkhe on Thursday.

There would be documentation, collection and study of Rajasthani culture and its languages and they would be located in the larger context of culture in general, he said.

The step was taken in the context of the slow death of the regional languages and culture due to neglect. He said, "Initially, we are planning on study of Rajasthani and other languages would be taken up in due course.

He pointed out that Central University of Rajasthan has taken up a major initiative to contribute to the culture and languages of India with special emphasis on Rajasthan. In the coming academic session the university is opening a post-graduate programme in cultural studies with emphasis on Rajasthan's culture, literature and arts and yet another post-graduate programme in environmental studies with special focus on desert.

The programme include collection of data and digitalisation of manuscripts. He said Prof Ganesh Devy of 'Bhasha' head of a trust under the Union Ministry of tribal affairs has agreed to co-ordinate with the University in the designing and the development of the Cultural Studies Programme and also in the Centre of Indian Languages. The Vice chancellor Salunkhe pointed out that it is an area of great significance because if our indigenous languages die not only our culture will be affected but at the same time we will also lose forever our own knowledge systems.

He expressed the hope that the association of Central University of Rajasthan and Bhasha' will go a long way in their common objective of serving the nation and society.

Nine more cubs bring cheer in Ranthambore

Quote:
JAIPUR: Ranthambore National Park, which lost 10 tigers recently due to deaths or straying, may have got back its count with at least nine cubs being sighted in the park.

Since last September, five cubs have been caught on camera while forest guards spotted two more tigress which are said to be lactating, park sources said.

A trap camera caught three cubs recently in the Indala region of the park. Though the news of the birth of the cubs at the Indala region came sometime back, forest officials could not confirm it as pictures were not available. There was even confusion on the number of cubs.

"Now since we have clicked the pictures of the cubs, we are sure. It is not two but three cubs that have been born to the Indala tigress. However, as the picture of the mother is not clear, we are still unable to specify the tigress,'' said RN Mehrotra, Rajasthan's principal chief conservator of forests.

The birth of these three cubs takes the official figure of newborns to five with another tigress, T-13, having littered two cubs in September 2010.

However, sources said that there are four more cubs have been spotted in separate areas in the park. "These four cubs are in two separate areas of the park. But there is no official confirmation on them as of now,'' the source said.

According to Rajpal Singh, member of the state wildlife board, the Indala tigress was the same one that gave birth to three cubs in 2006. However, none of those survived.

State govt to now make babus' assets public

Quote:
JAIPUR: After disclosing assets of its ministers, the state government is contemplating making the assets of state officials public to bring in transparency.

"We discussed the matter in the cabinet meeting today. If all goes as planned, assets of IAS, IPS and other officers will be made public,'' said chief minister Ashok Gehlot, while briefing reporters after the state cabinet meeting in Jaipur on Friday.

As per existing norms, bureaucrats belonging to all India services in the state file their property details with the department of personnel, but the same cannot be accessed publicly.

"We are looking into the legalities and if no hurdles crop up, bureaucrats too will have to declare their assets, which would be available online," Gehlot said. "In accordance with UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi's five-point programme for transparent governance, we (chief minister and ministers) made available the details of our assets and liabilities recently and it would be better if the bureaucrats also do so," the CM added.

Gehlot said that besides babus, he was in favour of disclosing legislators' assets too, provided all political parties unanimously agree to it. He said,"This is not for the state government to decide. It has to be an all-party decision. The idea of asset declaration is acceptable to us but we can't say the same for the Opposition parties. The state government will not and does not have a problem asking the public representatives to declare their assets."

Gehlot, during the last cabinet meeting on January 19, had asked his cabinet ministers to publicly declare their assets, which are now available on the state government's as well as the chief minister's website. The decision was taken by Gehlot as a measure to fight corruption.

Reacting to reports that some cabinet ministers had declared their assets as these were two years ago at the time of assembly elections, he said, "The decision was taken and immediately implemented, not giving ministers enough time to update. However, now the assets will be updated online and a deadline will be announced well in advance for ministers to be prepared.''

Three-layer committee for Raj census

Quote:
JAIPUR: A special three-layer committee at district, tehsil and village levels for the second phase of census beginning Wednesday will make Rajasthan stand out among the other states of the country.

The committees have been formed to cover a wider cross-section of people in the colossal enumeration exercise, which would be concentrating more on women-related data.

"The committees will have representations from the collector to the BDO, ANM, anganwadi workers and various other people. Such committees have been formed only in Rajasthan to ensure the coverage of a cross-section of people in the exercise," Subhra Singh, joint secretary and director of census operation, Rajasthan, said.

Besides, several teachers, ration officers, state and central government employees, totalling 1,24,200 personnel, will also be involved in the task that concludes across the country on February 28.

While the revisional round will be held between March 1 and March 5, the provisional figures will only be out by March end. Also, the caste census in the state will begin in June this year.

For the mammoth exercise, the Centre has made cricketer Sachin Tendulkar and actor Priyanka Chopra as brand ambassadors.

On the challenges, Singh said, "Census in Rajasthan has it owns problems. The state has the largest in terms of geographical area and is the eight most populated state. People here live in deserts, hills, forests and far-flung areas.

"We have 8.42% of the country's adivasi population and more than a lakh nomadic and homeless people. Besides there are many social issues here that curbs the free flow of data but our challenge will be to do our jobs efficiently so as to bring out the best figures by the end of the month."

Highlighting the many changes in this year's enumeration table, she said, "For women, even if she is just working at home or milking a cow or making papad, we will be counting them in the economic activity' category. We have also made provisions to specially enumerate women, who are heading a family and their mother tongue or the number of births they have given and so on. This time, the martial status column has separate provisions for divorced, separated and that of child marriage.

"We hope that people come out with the truth so that we can find out their exact status in the state. Our assurance is that of complete secrecy. Such data collected under census cannot be disclosed even under the RTI, or in a court of law or to the police."

Other aspects of the census include a state of the art schedule or a tabulation chart that for the first time has bar coding and separate numbers for each form.

"These forms will be scanned and fed into the computer for quick evaluation. For the first time, the forms also have provisions for enumerating eunuchs, precise date of births of a person, detailed column for disabled persons, a special code to check school attendance and a new category for people who have worked for less than three months. Earlier, the forms counted only those who had worked for a minimum period of six months," she added.

Geographical Indication tags for Rajasthani products soon

Quote:
aipur: The Jaipuri jooti may soon gain the same reputation as champagne, scotch or tequila. The state government's efforts to cover Rajasthan's traditional products under the Geographical Indication (GI) Act will succeed when the 'policy for the registration and protection of Geographical Indications of goods in Rajasthan' gets enacted.

The GI registration would ensure that local goods do not get produced outside the region of their origin, thus conserving the business for local artisans who have contributed in their development.

"A notification will soon be released for the new policy and efforts will be made to organise traditional manufacturers and help them acquire GI certificates," said a senior administrative official.

"Certain products such as Bikaneri bhujiya and Sanganeri block print have already gained GI tags; addition of more goods in the list will increase revenue for the manufactures," he added.

The Patent Information Centre (PIC), Rajasthan, has been made the nodal agency for GI protection.

The Centre will identify GIs in Rajasthan in consultation with concerned organisations. Cost of registration under the GI Act will be borne through the department of science and technology.

The GI Act provides that after a good is registered, its manufacture outside the marked area can attract legal action by authorised users, whose names have been entered in the register.

Constituted in 1999, the GI Act was enforced in Rajasthan in 2003. Kota Doriya was the first product in the handloom sector to get a GI certification.

A later study showed that since the certification, work availability increased for local handicraft artisans and they started earning nearly three times more for their work.

The new policy has sought approval from the state governor and a state-level committee has been constituted under the chairmanship of principal secretary, science and technology department. The committee will review the policy and related issues from time to time.
really good move!
