Chandigarh, July 28 , 2015 : Although drifting away from earlier traditions, seven day state mourning was announced by the Government of India to mark the respect to the former president of India but contrary to the expectations of the employees and other sections of the society , the union government and many state governments did not declared public holiday on the death of Abdul Kalam. We got several calls last evening and today morning as the people were anxious to know whether July 28 would be declared a public holiday by the central or state governments. We tried to confirm from the top officials of Punjab and Haryana Governments but nobody replied or confirmed about the holiday . A section of vernacular papers created confusion by carrying a single line news stating that National Holiday was declared by the Modi Govt. but the details could not be found because there was no such declaration.
A senior Punjab officers told babushahi.com that there is tradition of declaring holiday on the death of former PM and former president of India.
Only Karnatka Government have clarified that why the holiday was not declared to mark the respect to the departed soul. The Chief Secretary of the state Mr. Kaushik Mukherjee has been quoted by The Hindu claiming that Dr Kalam did not want holiday on his death."
Hindu wrote ," He claimed that the former President A.P.J. Abdul Kalam, who passed away on Tuesday, had said earlier that he did not want a holiday to be declared on the day after he died."
It is not clear where and when Dr Kalam expressed such desire.(Posted at 9.50 AM)

The BJP leader said that the timely action by Prime Minister Narendra Modi led NDA government at the centre and SAD-BJP government in Punjab foiled the plan of Pak aided infiltrators giving a clear message to Pakistan that India won't take the things lying down.

Chugh saluted the brave officers of Punjab Police, Army Jawans and commandos who worked as a team to neutralize the infiltrators.

He said that it was quite unfortunate that policemen including Baljit Singh, a SP level officer were martyred during the operation against terrorists. "The country bows before the Heroes who have sacrificed their lives to protect the lives and honour of the people of country," he said.

New Delhi, July 27, 2015: The UGC has informed that under CBCS, universities are requested to shift from numerical marking system, which is followed presently in universities, to grading system of evaluation. The grading system is considered to be better than the conventional marks system and hence it has been followed in the top institutions in India and abroad. This will facilitate student mobility across institutions within and across countries and also enable potential employers to assess the performance of students.
Further, under CBCS, Universities will move from the conventional annual system to semester system. The semester system accelerates the teaching-learning process and enables vertical and horizontal mobility in learning. The credit based semester system provides flexibility in assigning credits based on the course content and hours of teaching. The guidelines issued by UGC are available at http://www.ugc.ac.in/pdfnews/ 9555132_Guidelines.pdf

The UGC has informed that all the 39 Central Universities, funded by the UGC, are going to implement the Choice Based Credit System from the ensuing academic session. In addition, 21 State Public Universities, 5 State Private Universities and 6 Deemed to be Universities have also expressed their readiness for implementing CBCS.

The UGC has further informed that the CBCS would be different from the existing teaching-learning process as it would be based on modularized semester system leading to the award of credits. In addition, the performance of students will be adjudged in terms of grades rather than numerical marks. Further, it would also provide greater choices to the prospective students as they may be able to earn credits in their chosen subjects from across the departments as also from across the institutions.

Under Choice Based Credit System (CBCS) the availability of elective subjects increases and the student is not held hostage to academic inflexibility. This enables students to take courses of their choice, learn at their own pace, undergo additional courses and acquire more than the required credits, and adopt an interdisciplinary approach to learning. The UGC has informed that introduction of CBCS will help resolve various difficulties faced by the students due to the diversity in evaluation system followed by different universities in India. Further, CBCS would ensure seamless mobility of students across the higher education institutions in the country as well as abroad where such system is a norm.

This information was given by Union Minister of Human Resource Development Smt. Smriti Irani in a written reply to the Rajya Sabha Question today.

New Delhi, July 27, 2015: Ministry of Women and Child Development has notified revised Guidelines Governing Adoption of Children 2015 effective from1.8.2015. The 2015 Guidelines issued by the Central Adoption Resource Authority (CARA) would replace the 2011 Adoption Guidelines.

The revised guidelines have been framed keeping in mind the issues and challenges faced by CARA, Adoption Agencies and Prospective Adoptive Parents (PAPs).
These Guidelines are intended to provide for more effective regulation for adoption of orphan, abandoned and surrendered children and would bring more transparency and efficiency in the adoption system. With the new guidelines, it would become possible for PAPs to track the status of their application making the entire system more user friendly.

Accordingly, Central Adoption Resource Information Guidance System (CARINGS), as an e-governance measure created for the purpose of facilitating adoption of children, has been revamped. CARINGS will facilitate the adoption of maximum number of adoptable children and ensure a smoother adoption process by curbing undue delays. For hassle-free adoption, CARINGS will contain a centralized data bank of adoptable children and PAPs. Clear cut timelines for domestic and inter-country adoption have been laid down to ensure early deinstitutionalization of such children.

All District Child Protection Units (DCPUs) will be connected online to CARINGS. DCPUs will be responsible for making newspaper publications of abandoned children and the expenditure, if required, could be incurred under Integrated Child Protection Units (ICPS) Fund. One DCPU member will also be part of the Adoption Committee.

Salient features of the Guidelines Governing Adoption of Children, 2015:

(i) Clear and transparent procedure for registration of resident Indians and provision for uploading required documents online.

(ii) PAPs have an option to select an adoption agency of their choice for conducting Home Study Report (HSR) and preferred State also.

(iii) Home study Report of PAPs can be prepared by SARA/DCPU empanelled social worker.

(iv) Seniority of PAPs would be maintained from the date of registration.

(v) The maximum combined age for married couple has been increased from 105 years to 110 years to encourage adoption of older children.

(vi) Minimum 25 years age gap between the child and adoptive parents has been prescribed.

(vii) More clarity in adoption of special needs children, older children and siblings. Older children and siblings would no more be considered as special needs children.

(viii) All Specialised Adoption Agencies (SAAs) would be authorised to do In-country & Inter-country adoption.

(ix) Inter-state adoptions made simpler to boost adoptions within the country; No permission of State Adoption Resource Agency (SARA) is required for domestic adoption from another State.

(x) NRIs would be treated at par with resident Indians in terms of priority regarding referral of a child.

(xi) Greater clarity in the process and documentation for OCI and Foreign PAPs living in India.

(xii) Adoption expenses for different category of PAPs prescribed.

(xiii) Authorised Foreign Adoption Agency (AFAA) would have a provision of renewal after a period of five years.

(xiv) All adoptions (in-country or inter-country) to proceed on CARINGS, adoption outside CARINGS is strictly prohibited.

The new simplified guidelines are available on the website of the Ministry of Women and Child Development “www.wcd.nic.in” and website of CARA “www.adoptionindia.nic.in.”....

Chandigarh, July 27, 2015: The Govt. of Punjab, Department of Health and Family Welfare has always been striving to provide best health care facilities to the general public with a view to minimize out of pocket expenditure to the patients in R/o Health Care. The department has taken various initiatives in this regard and providing medicines for treatment of Hepatitis B & C to the patients at highly subsidized rates is one of such initiatives apart from various other initiatives like providing free essential drugs, free deliveries including medicines and consumables to the patients visiting Govt. Health facility and providing Cancer Treatment Drugs at subsidized rates to the patients through empanelled hospitals as well as Jan Aushadhi Stores (JAS). This was revealed here today by Ms. Vini Mahajan, Principal Secretary Health & Family Welfare, Punjab.
She said that Hepatitis C is an infectious disease which spreads through a virus. The transmission of the disease is through infected syringes, transfusion of infected blood, to new born baby from infected mother. The main symptoms are fever, weakness, loss of appetite, yellow colored urine etc. The Punjab Health Systems Corporation (Deptt. of Health and Family Welfare, Govt. of Punjab) has finalized the Rate Contract for Tab. Entecavir 0.5 mg and Injection Peginterferon α 2b in the month of October, 2014. These medicines are used for treatment of Hepatitis B & C respectively. The rates of these medicines in the Rate Contract finalized by the department and MRP are as under:
Name of the Medicine Name of the Firm Unit pack Size Rate finalized in Rate Contract (In Rs.) MRP
(in Rs.)
Tab. Entecavir 0.5 mg
M/s Ranbaxy Laboratories Ltd. 10's 299.25 897.00
Peginterferon alfa 2b 50 mcg M/s Fulford (India) Ltd. One Vial 4252.50 9268.00

Ms Vini Mahajan further added that these medicines are being provided at subsidized rates to the patients through 21 Jan Aushadhi Stores located at District and Sub Divisional Hospitals in the State of Punjab. The particulars of drugs were finalized under expert guidance from Deptt. of Hepatolgy, PGIMER, Chandigarh. As per the conditions of the Rate Contract the suppliers are monitoring tests free of cost to the patients from NABL Accredited laboratories.
She said that with the finalization of the Rate Contract for treatment of Hepatitis B & C, it is expected that out of pocket expenditure for the patients suffering from Hepatitis B&C will be reduced substantially and their exploitation at the hands of Chemists/Suppliers who were supplying these medicines at exorbitant rates will be reduced to a great extent. Till date approximately 1400 injections of Peginterferon alfa 2b (used for treatment of Hepatitis B) and 6000 tablets Entecavir (used for treatment of Hepatitis B) have been provided to the patients under the Rate Contract through Jan Aushadhi Stores
She said that further as per inputs received from PGIMER, oral drugs are now available for treatment of Hepatitis C. Tenure of treatment under oral therapy is 3 to 6 months compared to one- two years through injections and consequently rates of injections have fallen/ scaled down considerably. Therefore the rates of Injection Peginterferon (used for treatment of Hepatitis C) are also being revised under the Rate Contact and fresh tenders are being invited for Rate Contract of Oral Drugs. ....

He questioned Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal for passing on responsibility to the centre.
SP Baljit Singh's sacrifice shows that the state has brave police officers who are willing to lay down their lives for the sake of the nation. A hockey-player who began his international career against a match against South Africa, SP Baljit Singh's first served the country in the playing fields, and has now given his life in an ultimate sacrifice.
He said what had happened in Dinananar was not only of concern to Punjab but also a warning to the Narendra Modi government as it seemed to be well planned operation going by the way explosives had also been planted on the railway track nearby.
He said one could never anticipate such attacks but at the same time, the Chief Minister could not pass the buck by saying that the border should be completely sealed. The state police too should have been vigilant.
He recalled Punjab had passed through more than a decade of turbulence in which thousands of lives were lost and as such, the need was to maintain extra vigilance, all the more so when the police budget was on the rise every year.....

Qadian, July 27, 2015 (Ch.Maqbool Ahmad): The Punjab Congress President Partap Singh Bajwa, while strongly condemning the terrorist attack at Dinanagar, said it exposed the vulnerability of the state and its soft underbelly, besides the laxity of the Akali Dal-BJP government led by Parkash Singh Badal. He said it was also a warning to the Narendra Modi government. He paid tributes to Baljit Singh, SP(D) who sacrificed his life while battling terrorists.
“However, what is shocking that the Chief Minister Mr Parkash Singh Badal has tried to pass the buck to the centre saying that the infiltration should have been stopped at the border itself. His party is part of the government at the centre and as such, he must share the blame. He can’t shift responsibility. Moreover, the activities of the terrorists continued for some time before they started the attack going by the way explosives were planted on the rail track. It is the vigilance that was lacking”, he said.

He recalled that Punjab had been through the worst for more than a decade and what had happened today seemed to be an indication that the effort was to once again provoke the situation.

He said here was an issue which was not political but Mr Badal could not be absolved of his responsibility as he had been repeatedly been maintaining that the state was peaceful.

He said this incident could be linked to the death sentence to Yakub Menon, celebration of Kargil Divas, parliament being in session or forthcoming Independence Day.

He called for strengthening of the intelligence wing of the state police.

He said he along with the AICC General Secretary Mr Shakeel Ahmad would visit the spot tomorrow.....
