Chandigarh, August 28, 2015: The advanced centre for technical development of Punjabi language, literature and culture enhanced its vastly popular website (www.learnpunjabi.org) for Punjabi teaching by adding video lectures and multi media e-book to the website.
Twenty one video lectures by world renowned linguist Dr. Harjit Singh Gill have been developed in collaboration with EMMRC, Patiala. They cover instructions and illustrations in the phonetic structure of Punjabi. There are numerous examples in different phonologic and syntactic contexts. These structures have been compared with English and French to show linguistic and cultural differences amongst these languages.
In addition the book, A Start in Punjabi, by Dr Gleason and Dr Gill has also been converted into a multi-media e-book containing 20 chapters. For each example, word or sentence appearing in the book, there is a corresponding pronunciation, transcription and translation in English. The book is based on detailed analyses of sound patterns and syntactic structures of Punjabi.
The multi-media based website already includes pictorial vocabulary, games, quizzes, rhymes and talking stories besides lessons on alphabets, orthography, pronunciation, word building, sentence building, and Punjabi grammar. The website is being used in more than 156 countries for Punjabi learning in schools, colleges and universities in India, UK, Canada and USA and these videos and e-book can supplement the classroom teaching
The project has been completed under the guidance of Dr. Gurpreet Singh Lehal, Director Advanced Centre for Technical Development of Punjabi language, literature and culture, Punjabi University, Patiala. Other members of the project are Dr. Tejinder Singh Saini, Mandeep Singh, Prof. Mukhtiar Singh Gill, Nishant Jain, Rakesh Dawra, Dr. Harvinder Kaur and Dr. Jaspal Singh.

Qadian, August 28, 2015 (Ch.Maqbool Ahmad): The World Head of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, the Fifth Khalifa (Caliph), His Holiness, Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad, has delivered a powerful and authoritative response to critics of Islam who blame the world's problems on the religion. Whilst delivering a comprehensive defense of Islam’s true teachings to the Ahmadiyy Community in a live telecast through Muslim Television Ahmadiyya. His Holiness condemned all forms of terrorism and extremism as completely against the teachings of Islam. Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad rejected the notion that religion was the cause of violence or warfare. He said that amongst those who claimed Islam to be a religion of violence were people who continued to justify the deployment of nuclear weapons against Japan during the Second World War and those who had supported the failed military interventions in Libya in 2011 and Iraq in 2003 in which hundreds of thousands of innocent lives had been lost. Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad said: “Many people in the developed world consider religion to be the primary cause of world disorder, however this is due to a misunderstanding of religion itself. The disorder and injustice we see around the world is not as a result of religion, rather it is being perpetrated by self-interest and greed. It is a result of people misusing the name of God to fulfill their vested interests, and it is also a result of the denial of the very existence of God.” His Holiness recounted how recently an academic he met had stated that religion should evolve and adapt to suit the modern age and the latest cultural trends. Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad responded: “Religion is there to lead and guide humanity, not to follow people’s worldly desires. And so we believe in that book (the Holy Quran) which has been preserved for more than 1400 years and whose teaching is in every way perfect and complete. It is a teaching for the people of every age and every land!” Speaking about the desperate state of much of the world, Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad said: “Today we are clearly seeing the fulfillment of the prophecy of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (peace be on him) in which he said a time would come when the Muslim clerics would not spread anything but ignorance, injustice and disorder and their words would be at complete odds with their deeds.” Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad said that anti-Islamic powers were taking advantage of the widespread conflict within the Muslim world and were fanning the flames of fear and mistrust of Islam. Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad said: “We see that the opponents of Islam are levelling false allegations against Islam as a matter of routine. They are declaring Islam to be a religion of disorder and extremism whereas others are portrayed as the flag bearers of world peace and harmony.”
Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad continued: “On the one hand we see that certain leaders or commentators say that Islam is not a violent religion, yet on the other hand they are also claiming that there is a link between Islam and extremism. Their remarks are contradictory and an attempt to placate all sides. Thus let me make it clear that no other teaching promotes peace and tolerance to the extent that Islam has championed.” Later in his address, His Holiness said that Islam teaches one to favor others and to priorities their rights over one’s own rights. However, the major powers rarely sought to favor those who were vulnerable and any help or aid they gave was generally contingent on the fulfillment of certain conditions or criteria. Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad said that before objecting to Islamic teachings, those opposed to Islam should look to their own examples. His Holiness said that those who had dropped atomic bombs on Japan continued to feel no sorrow or shame. They continued to claim that the use of nuclear weapons at Hiroshima and Nagasaki were acts of bravery and honor, even though hundreds of thousands of innocent men, women and children were killed and generation and after generation had suffered the ill effects of those devastating attacks.

Mukerian/Hoshiarpur/Jalandhar, August 28, 2015: The Punjab Congress President Mr Partap Singh Bajwa would sit on fast unto death from November 16 in Chandigarh in case the Sugar Mills don’t start the crushing of sugarcane by November 15. He appealed to the farmers organisations to extend support in this common cause. He served ultimatum to the government to accept the demands of the farmers by November 15.

Addressing a dharna in front of the sugar mill here, the PPCC President said the Punjab the Badal government should evolve policy to subsidise farmers and sugar mills on the pattern of Uttar Pradesh and Bihar. He said as compared to these two states, the amount to be paid in Punjab was much less. He demanded subsidy at the rate of Rs 30 to Rs 35 per quintal on sugarcane to the farmers so that the mills become viable.

At the same time, he urged the Narendra Modi government at the centre to announce package for Punjab Farmers at least Rs 51000 crore on the pattern of Bihar to offset the debt liability of the farmers who were increasingly committing suicide.

He berated the Modi government for being anti-minority and anti-Punjab. He especially referred to the threat of eviction facing the Punjabi farmers settled in Gujarat as the state government has failed to with its special leave petition from the Supreme Court.

He lashed at Badal saying the chief minister had failed on all fronts. According to recent census survey the fall in the Punjabi especially Sikh population was alarming and one of the reasons was migration of about 1.5 lakh youth from the state to other countries every year as employment opportunities were absent here. The situation had reached its nadir in the absence of lack of capital investment due to bad governance.

He announced that the next dharna would be staged by the party in front of the Kiri Afghana sugar mill on September 12.

Chandigarh, August 28, 2015: It seems to be another case in the making of harassment of NRIs’ by an insensitive system & people. Late Mr. T L Verma, who was a liquor baron of the region and was owner of T L Verma & Co Ltd and many other subsidiary companies as well as properties, passed away in Pakistan on 19th August, where he was on a business trip. The business magnate’s assets, including all properties; estimated at several thousands of Crores has become a bone of contention in the family. Verma had two marriages the first was with Madhu Verma, which ended in a divorce and Verma had two children from this – both Non Resident Indians (NRIS’) – Mr. Deepak & Mrs. Geeta Verma, who are based in USA & Canada respectively. The second marriage was with Mrs. Manjit Kaur, who has expired & Verma had a son Mohit from his wedlock with Late Manjit Kaur.
When Deepak and Geeta came for the last rites of their father to India, they were informed by a close relative that there was no WILL left behind and that they do not have any share in the businessman’s assets. This was informed by Geeta Verma in a press meet held at Chandigarh. The two were cold shouldered by Mohit who behaved in an arrogant way by not letting Deepak perform the last rites though he was the elder son. Their step brother Mohit, refuses to talk to them. “We were told by someone close to Mohit that he was not in the mood to talk to us and will only discuss anything related to property after 6 months as he is in a state of shock. We cannot wait for that long as there is a fear that he may misuse the assets by selling or liquidating these when we return to our respective countries. We are asking Mohit to show us the WILL we want to know what is its content. If there is something for us we have a right to it, if not, then we will go back.” Said Deepak Verma.
Geeta also showed the media a copy of a Supreme Court of India order, given in relation to the alimony decided in the divorce case between T L and Madhu Verma. It is clearly written in this that the payment being made to the children will not affect their right to a share, if any, in respect to property of Late T L Verma. “My father had very good relations with all of us despite his second marriage. He showered his love on us whenever we used to come to Chandigarh to meet him. I recall that in the last meeting with him in January 2015, he said that he did not want us to get into legal tussles in case he dies and that he will make a WILL to remove all doubts about our share. Even if our father died intestate (without leaving a WILL) then also we are entitled to 1/3 rd share in keeping with the SC order and because of the fact that we are his lawful children from first wedlock of our late Father.”Said Mrs. Geeta Verma.
The children demanded that bank accounts & lockers in name of Late T L Verma be sealed and an embargo be put on selling of land belonging to Late T L Verma till the matters associated with his Estate are not finalized in a fair & legal manner. This was important so as to obviate legal imbroglios for people entering into purchase agreements with Mohit, who could sell properties by posing as the only heir. ....

Amritsar, August 28, 2015: Bhartiya Janata Party state vice president Rajinder Mohan Singh Chhina today said that the smart city tag for the city of Golden Tempel is well deserved and timely. Thanking the BJP led NDA government in the Centre, Chhina said that the new status and the facilities that the new projects would usher in bring an all around development for the `holy city’.

Chhina said the city residents would always remain thankful to Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley for various development projects announced for Amritsatr in the near past. He said apart from the IIM, the heritage city status and horticulture mission and now the smart city status, the city has got plethora of central schemes.

He said it rare honour that Amritsar is included in the list of the 98 smart cities, which the city which attract tourists and pilgrims from all over the country and abroad, well deserve. ``It is the only BJP led NDA government in Centre that had identified the potential of the city to become best in the country in the coming years. He hoped that the state government and the city administration would make the optimum use of the grants which are received under central schemes and the basic infrastructure is strengthened to make the life of the city residents easy, safe and progressive’, said Chhina.

Chhina said that the city, being a border district had been ignored by the successive governments both at the centre and state and it is the high time that the city is developed as most modern one in the future. He said the city gets visitors and tourists who are shocked to see the dirty roads, streets and piles of garbage all around.

``The city’s traffic is worst possible and the surroundings of the Golden Temple pose a picture of neglect. The public transport is negligible and everywhere there are illegal encroachments and mismanagement’’, said he asking the city’s Mayor Bakshi Ram Arora and city administration to seriously work for the betterment of the city, which today poses a picture of dirt, mismanaged traffic and disorder all around.....

Nevada (USA), August 28, 2015: Sri Sri Radha Krishna Temple of Devotion & Understanding opens in Seberang Jaya, (Penang, Malaysia) on August 29.

First of its kind in Malaysia, this about 10 million Malaysian Ringgit octagonal-shaped multi-storey unique temple established by International Society for Krishna Consciousness (ISKCON) has 16 chatris, was designed after two well-known temples in India and its decorations were undertaken by artisans from India. Besides worship services, this temple also proposes to instruct devotees on yoga, chanting, spirituality, etc.; run an education center; provide free vegetarian food and include a Srila Prabhupada Gallery.

New Delhi, August 28, 2015: NITI Aayog launched the second version of the India Energy Security Scenarios 2047 calculator (IESS 2047), an open source web based tool. The tool aims to explore a range of potential future energy scenarios for India, for diverse energy demand and supply sectors leading up to 2047. It explores India’s possible energy scenarios across energy supply sectors such as solar, wind, bio fuels, oil, gas, coal and nuclear and energy demand sectors such as transport, industry, agriculture, cooking and lighting appliances. The model allows users to interactively make energy choices, and explore a range of outcomes for the country-from carbon dioxide emissions and import dependence to land use.

The tool was launched by the NITI Aayog Vice Chairman Arvind Panagariya in presence of a select gathering at a function at the Federation House in New Delhi yesterday. In his remarks, the Vice-Chairman of NITI Aayog, Shri Aravind Panagariya said The IESS 2047 calculator has already been playing an instrumental role in shaping India’s energy policy. With the launch of the second version, one can look forward to a more comprehensive policy discourse on India’s future energy planning by policy makers, academicians, private sector and other stakeholders. The Member, NITI Aayog, Dr. Bibek Debroy, lauded the efforts in operationalization of IESS 2047 calculator. He said the interactive tool will offer policy makers to create an energy pathway which is secure and addresses the need of the people and climate. The other Member of NITI Aayog, Dr. VKSaraswat expressed hope that the IESS 2047 calculator will support India’s future energy planning to help the country become self-sufficient in energy. It will support the Government’s vision of achieving power for all and 175 GW of renewables by 2022, rural electrification and reducing import dependency.

The purpose of the IESS tool is to engage various stakeholders in the country’s energy planning and facilitate informed debates at different levels. This tool will enable policy makers and parliamentarians make a more secure and sustainable energy future for India. The tool allows the user develop a secure future pathway and suggest current policy interventions for the same. The tool has been developed in consultation with multiple stakeholders, such as think tanks, industry bodies and research organizations.

Recommends need to Regulate Pet Shops and Dog and Aquarium Fish Breeding

New Delhi, August 28, 2015: The Law Commission of India has, on 28th August 2015, i.e. today submitted its Report No. 261 on the “Need to Regulate Pet Shops and Dog and Aquarium Fish Breeding” to the Union Minister of Law and Justice. The report observes that pet shops and breeders violate provisions of animal welfare laws with impunity, and recommends that it is necessary to regulate their practices.

India has a pet trade estimated to have an annual turnover of several thousand crore rupees, and growing at a fast pace every year, according to representations received by the Law Commission from animal rights and animal welfare organisations across India. However, the business remains largely unregulated. This appears to because rules in this regard have not been issued under the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act, 1960.

As a result, while thousands of breeders and pet shops exist in the Indian market, there are no regulations protecting the animals they breed or sell. Reports suggest that these animals are kept in terribly inhumane conditions. For instance, it appears that puppies are drugged to prevent them from crying, large birds are stuffed into small cages and fish become stressed and sometimes die because of confinement, crowding, contaminated water and unnatural temperatures. Other common harmful practices include de-beaking birds, docking the tails of dogs, selling unweaned pups, and de-clawing kittens. Poor conditions in pet shops and a lack of basic veterinary care also put the general human public at increased risk of contracting diseases transmitted through animals.

The Law Commission undertook a thorough analysis of the legal position, various representations, as well as the large number of reports on the issue, and has noted that the provisions of the law are violated with impunity by pet shops and breeders. Given the gravity of the issue, the Central Government must seriously take cognizance of the issue and regulate such trade and breeding practices.

Further, the rules on pet shops, dog breeding and aquarium fish breeding have been drafted in consultation with stakeholders and lying pending with the concerned ministry since 2010. The Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change, based on the opinion of the Legislative Department and the Department of Legal Affairs, Ministry of Law and Justice, believes that the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act, 1960, does not have enabling or substantive provisions to issue these regulations, and thus, issuing these regulations would be beyond the powers of the Ministry under the law. The Law Commission emphasises, however, that there are sufficient powers contained in the law which allow these rules to be issued, and recommends that the rules be notified and implemented at the earliest. ....

Chandigarh, August 28, 2015: Organised as part of Elante Wednesdays, a customer-centric concept introduced by the mall to create an open forum for interaction and learning for tricity’s women folk, the workshop by acclaimed Home Decor expert Ms Komal Bhatiani offered many valuable tips on making homes aesthetically more appealing
The latest edition of Elante Mall’s much-cherished Elante Wednesdays came as a lovely change for the tricity’s women folk with the mall hosting an exclusive workshop for them on “Home Decor” by acclaimed Home Decor expert Ms Komal Bhatiani this Wednesday.

The two-hour workshop conducted at InV Home in Elante Mall elicited an enthusiastic response as women across the tricity and beyond turned up at the venue in large numbers to learn the nuances of home decor. Coming at an opportune time ahead of the festive season, the workshop offered many valuable tips on making homes aesthetically more appealing. About xx women attended the workshop.

Elante Wednesdays is a customer-centric concept introduced by the mall to create an open forum for interaction and learning for the women folk of the tricity.

Ms Bhatiani, a creative entrepreneur with expertise in luxury home décor designs, brands and products, kept the participants engaged with her expert knowledge on home decor, giving practical, affordable and yet classy decor tips that don’t burn a hole in one’s pocket. Stressing on the key elements of space, colour, cleanliness and garden, Ms Bhatiani offered insights on how to blend these elements for that perfect festive look.

“Festivals are special occasions in India when we all want to decorate our homes. The lighting, decoration material and flowers that we choose should be pleasing to the eyes. The simplest of decors can look more breathtaking and heavenly than a loud, over-bearing decor, when done the right way. One can take some liberty with décor elements in view of the festive season. Sparkly decor looks nice, but it should not be overdone to look garish,” said Ms Bhatiani.

Clarifying that Home Decor is not as difficult or complicated as it seems to be, she said, “But you must have a clear idea of what you want and what your budget is before going about the task. Once you get started, make sure you decide upon the colour scheme, furniture and other items to complement the amount of space you have. Pleasing colour-tones which are not overbearing and give the place a more spacious feel leave more room for experimentation when it comes to furniture and other decor items.”

Ms Bhatiani also gave handy tips on how to make washrooms look appealingly hygienic and how to further beautify gardens.

Instrumental in setting up the world-class INV Home stores in Delhi and Chandigarh, Ms Bhatiani has handled over 700 home product categories. Her choice of designs, products and brands have been widely covered in the media and top home décor magazines like Elle Décor, Better Homes & Gardens, Good Housekeeping, Architecture Design and many more. She also offers consultancy to Indian and international luxury segment customers as well as Home Décor experts on the designs, products and accessories best suited to them.

Commenting on the Elante Wednesday’s initiative, Mr Manoj Agarwal, Head of Operations, Elante Mall, said, “We turn every Elante Wednesday into an opportunity for visitors to learn something new and exciting. That’s precisely why Elante Wednesdays have become such a hit among the women visiting the mall. With the festive season on the anvil, we were of the view that home decor would be a top priority for most people.”

Bathinda, August 28, 2015: Keeping in view the damaged to cotton crop due to whitefly pest attack, the Punjab government has motivated progressive farmers to coordinate with the farmers and agriculture department providing important information on the issue.


In a press statement issued here today the Deputy Commissioner Bathinda Dr Basant Garg stated that to create awareness and disseminate information on white fly, the agriculture department has asked one progressive farmer to work in each of the two villages to carry out this work by providing information and coordinating between the farmers and agriculture department.

He added that already the Chief Minister Punjab has ordered special girdawari of the areas affected due to attack of whitefly pest. Following the orders of Chief Minister Punjab, the revenue department has immediately asked to conduct survey and submit reports. For this, teams have been constituted at the sub-division level, which will contact the farmers, assess damage incurred due to the whitefly and prepare detailed reports.

Regarding this the SDM, tehsildars and naib-tehsildars have been asked to especially monitor the ongoing girdawari process so that the procedure is completed soon and reports are sent on time. Thereafter the farmers will be given adequate compensation for their losses.

The Chief Agriculture Officer Dr Rakesh Kumar Singla said that total 1.45 lacs hectares of area in district Bathinda was under cotton cultivation. Hence the Punjab government had given cotton farmers 30000 liters of Oberon and 6000 kg of Ectara named pesticides earlier at 50 percent subsidy.

The agriculture department was also holding village level awareness camps. Many villages level camps have been held at the affected villages and besides this the farmers are being educated about technical know-how in managing cotton crop.

Chandigarh/Mohali, August 28, 2015: Gaiety and Traditional fervour marked the Teej Celebrations organised by the Rural Development & Panchayats Department, Punjab. It was a day of fun and frolic, as ladies clad in colourful dresses enjoyed them at the Vikas Bhawan, Mohali.
Dressed in colourful and traditional attires, guests including the wives of local Officers as well as the women employees of various government departments had a good time during the two hours long festivities. On this occasion they performed folk dances of Punjab. The women enjoyed the main attraction of the festival- the swings decorated with flowers. The place reverberated with the beat of drums. The participants presented songs from a series of their choicest collections. Special attraction of the day was “Teej Queen” competition. Kamalpreet Kaur was selected as the Teej Queen and was crowned by folk singer Dolly Gularia. Bibi Surjit Kaur Maluka wife of S. Sikander Singh Maluka was special guest and also enjoyed this Teej Mela.
Mr. Sikander Singh Maluka, Rural Development & Panchyats Minister Punjab, sharing his feelings said that earlier people, particularly those in rural areas used to celebrate Teej in a big way. But with the passage of time, the festivities have lost their glory and are confined to a few common places like educational institutions in the urban areas and symbolic celebrations for the entertainment of children in villages. He added that Teej celebrations nowadays are vapid due to many reasons, mainly the growing individualism in the society, degradation of social values, change in the professional temperament of people and missing of big trees of peepal and neem on the banks of village ponds and the outskirts of the village which used to serve the purposes for putting swings earlier.
He added that during the month of Shravan, a decade or two ago, women used to go in the groups for swinging in gardens after completing their domestic chores and used to sing folk songs. Talking about the decline in the trend of Teej celebration, he attributed it to the rapid growth of entertainment means through electronic media. “Earlier, major occasions of entertainment used to be the festivals”, he said and added, “Today’s young girls hardly remember shravan folk songs and it shows a decline in our folk culture.”
The minister said that that our young generation is following the western culture today and forgetting their rich cultural heritage. He said that by organising this type of an event an attempt has been made by the department to put in its bit to save the rich cultural heritage of Punjab and portray one of its fast fading aspects to the new generation so that they may be acquainted with our cultural heritage.
Besides the female government employees, the members of prominent Non Government Organisations, social workers, the wives of local Officers, Principal secretary Mr. Roshan Sunkaria, IAS, Joint Secretary-cum-commissioner Mr. Gurdev Singh Ghumman IAS, Director Sukhjit Singh Bains IAS, Joint Secretary Mr. J.P. Singla & Editor Sade Pind Magazine Jagtar Singh Sidhu also participated in the celebrations.....

Asks to release Rs. 120 Crore for setting up of State Cancer Institute at Amritsar
Demands such two more institutes for Hoshiarpur & Fazilka

Urges Health Ministry to take up issue with MCI for revising norms for more PG seats

New Delhi, August 28, 2015: On the personal intervention of the Punjab Chief Minister Mr. Parkash Singh Badal, the Government of India (GoI) has finally approved the long pending proposal of state government to allow parity in the fat standards of cow milk in Punjab with other states across the country thus bringing it down from 4% to 3.5% as permitted in rest of India by the Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI).
This decision was conveyed to Mr. Badal by the Union Health & Family Welfare Minister Mr. JP Nadda during a meeting here in his office at Nirman Bhawan this morning.
Taking part in the deliberations, Mr. Nadda informed the Chief Minister that the issue related to bringing the prescribed fat standards of cow milk in Punjab, Haryana and UT Chandigarh at par with other states of the country has been cleared by the task force group on milk and milk products constituted by the FSSAI. The Union Minister further said the final notification in this regard would be issued by the Ministry of Health, GoI within two months after getting green signal from the World Trade Organization (WTO) as it was mandatory under the prescribed rules & regulations for the Ministry to seek its nod prior issuing a notification.
Expressing gratitude to Mr. Nadda for taking a positive call on this issue, the Chief Minister said that this path breaking decision would go a long way in giving a major boost to the Dairy sector and offer a level playing field to the dairy farmers in the state.
On another issue related to setting up of AIIMS at Bathinda, Mr. Nadda informed the Chief Minister that all the requisite formalities have been completed and cleared by the special committee constituted by the Ministry of Health GoI, which has also inspected the site and now the Ministry would finally get this prestigious project cleared in the next meeting of Union Cabinet. He assured Mr. Badal that immediately after getting Cabinet’s nod, the work on this mega health project would be taken up on war footing. The Chief Minister also extended a formal invite to Mr. Nadda to lay the foundation stone of AIIMS at Bathinda as per his convenience and same was accepted by Mr. Nadda graciously.
Seeking special funds for reviving the glorious legacy and heritage of Government Medical College, Amritsar- one of the oldest and prestigious Medical Colleges in the country, Mr. Badal urged the Union Health Ministry to allow one-time special grant to refurbish its heritage grandeur. Mr. Nadda asked the state government to send a comprehensive proposal in this behalf to enable him to take up this issue with the Finance Ministry separately for seeking funds for this Medical College in view of its rich heritage.
The Chief Minister also sought funds to the tune of Rs. 120 crore required for the setting up of State Cancer Institute at Amritsar to cope up with the curse of Cancer effectively. He however also requested Mr. Nadda to sanction similar projects for Hoshiarpur and Fazilka in order to provide the best treatment to cancer patients and asked the Ministry to grant approval for these cancer treatment Institutes expeditiously.
Responding to another demand to seek financial assistance for additional trauma Centres at Government Hospitals on national Highways, Mr. Nadda asked the Chief Minister to send a detailed action plan in this regard so that his Ministry could take an appropriate call on the issue and assured that there was considerable scope for the up-gradation of trauma centres with innovative techniques and facilities to provide the best possible treatment to the accidental victims.
Demanding increase in the quota of PG seats, the Chief Minister sought Health Ministry’s direct intervention to take up the issue of revising norms for allotment of PG seats with the Medical Council of India (MCI) and thus allowing three PG seats per Professor instead of existing norm of two seats per Professor. He brought into the notice of Mr. Nadda that the State Medical Colleges were grappling with acute shortage of Post Graduate Specialists in Psychiatry, Radiology, Anesthesia, Gynae, Forensic Medicine and orthopedics. Similarly, Mr. Badal also raised the issue to enhance MBBS seats in Government Medical College, Amritsar from 150 to 200. He informed Mr. Nadda that the state government had re-submitted a fresh proposal in this regard. Mr. Badal also requested the Union Health Ministry to immediately release Rs. 84 crore for the 50 increased seats in each GMC, Patiala and Amritsar. Mr. Nadda assured the Chief Minister that he would soon take up this matter with MCI so as to secure a viable solution to address the issue of scarcity of Medical Specialists and enhancing the MBBS seats in GMC, Amritsar.
The Chief Minister was accompanied by his Special Principal Secretary Mr. Gaggandip Singh Brar, Principal Secretary Health & Family Welfare Mrs. Vinni Mahajan, Secretary Health, Medical Education & Research Mr. Hussan Lal and Principal Resident Commissioner Punjab Bhawan New Delhi Mrs. Kalpna Mittal Barua. ....

He said that government would soon launch a multi media campaign to generate awareness regarding various Acts protecting women and children.
Inaugurating a Sensitization Workshop organised jointly by Mahatma Gandhi State Institute for Public Administration and Punjab State Commission for the Protection of Child Rights on Child Rights, Chief Secretary Mr. Sarvesh Kaushal advocated the need of strong mechanism for effective implementation of Child and Women Rights Acts enacted at National and State levels for providing much needed support to these vulnerable sections of the society. The sensitization process of the functionaries of the implementation agencies for schemes of social sectors needs to be further geared up by organizing workshops and seminars at divisional and district levels.
Mr. Kaushal directed them to ensure effective implementation of various Acts protecting women and children. He said that that social sector needs special focus of our efforts for giving a push to the overall growth in the country. He lamented that the officers posted in departments of state government looking after social security programmes lacks interest, which leads to tardy process in ensuring benefits of schemes envisaged for the poor strata of society. He said that this attitude must change and all including Government officials NGOs and individuals must actively involve in giving a push to the welfare programmes for children and women.
Mr. Kaushal asked the Child Rights Commission to launch a website and prepare a compendium illustrating various measures for protection of Child Rights which should be available with every functionary in different departments dealing with child protection projects.

Professing for adopting child specific approach, Mr. Kaushal said that Child labour was completely banned in Punjab and he has asked the members of civil society not to employ children as domestic help, at dhabhas and other unorganized sectors of employment. He said instead of giving them labour job, give them opportunity to pursue goals of quality education so that they could become a part of civilized society.
Lauding the work being done by the Central government by checking the violation of Rights of Children and women and also online tracking system for missing children, the Chief Secretary said that the Punjab Government departments and Child Rights Commission must follow suite and work in the same spirit and focus.

Chandigarh, August 28, 2015: The Punjab Government issued directions to all departments to strictly implement the judgement of Supreme Court and said that in the cases of recovery of excess payment or wrongly paid benefits made by the Employer to the employee.
According to an official spokesman, the communiqué has quoted the judgement of Supreme Court in state of Punjab vs Rafique Masih and others and quoted that “Ít is not possible to postulate all situations of hardship which would govern employees on the issue of recovery, where payments have mistakenly been made by employer, in excess of their entitlement. Be that as it may, based on decisions the referred to herein above, we may, as a ready reference, summarise the following few situations where in recoveries by employer, would be impermissible in law’’. The spokesman said that as per judgement in such cases, recovery from employees belonging to class-3 or class-4 service (Group-c or d service), recovery from retired employees, or employees who are due to retire within one year of the order of recovery, or recovery from employees, when the excess payment has been made for a period in excess of five years, before the order of recovery is issued.
The communiqué explained that as per order, the recovery from those employees who has wrongfully been required to discharge duties of higher post, even though he should have rightfully been required to work against an inferior post, was also impermissible. The court has concluded that recovery should not be taken in the cases where the court arrives at conclusion that recovery if made from employee would be iniquitous or harsh or arbitrary to an extent, as would far outweigh the equitable balance of employers’ right to recover. It said that in future recovery of excess payment made to employees is to be regulated as per ratio of judgement 18.12.14
The Spokesman said that The Punjab Government has withdrawn existing instructions dated 5-10-2012 on the subject.....

Moga, August 27, 2015 : The government doctors in Moga called off their one day strike following the transfer of Superintendent of civil surgeon office Moga on Thursday.

Jagjit Singh, superintendent of civil surgeon Moga, has been transferred to Ludhiana while enquiry has been marked to civil surgeon Ferozpur.

The doctors of the district under the banner of Punjab Civil Medical Services Association (PCMSA) had announced a one day strike for August 28 in a press release emailed to media persons today afternoon but reversed the decision later in the evening following the transfer orders of the superintendent.

The PCMSA had announced to shut OPD services across the district including all blocks and district hospital but exempted emergency services.

In a revised press release sent to media persons via email, the Punjab Civil Medical Services association (PCMSA) called off the strike. Earlier during the day, the PCMSA alleged that the state government had taken no action against the erring superintendent of the civil surgeon office Jagjit Singh. The PCMSA had emailed a complaint to Principal Secretary, Health & Family Welfare Punjab Winni Mahajan on August 21.

“We had served an ultimatum to the health secretary for today but the state government took no action against Jagjit Singh till afternoon and we announced a strike for tomorrow but the transfer orders of Jagjit Singh were received by the civil surgeon on his email in the evening, hence we called off the strike”, Dr Gagan Deep Singh, president district body of the PCMSA said.

“Jagjit Singh had insulted office bearers of the PCMSA when they were holding a meeting with civil surgeon Moga on August 21, and he had even dared the senior doctors to have face to face fight with him. We had emailed the complaint while Civil surgeon Moga Dr Renu Mangla also recommended action against Jagjit Singh”, he added.

According to the orders of director Health and Family Welfare Punjab Dr Bhag Mall, Superintendent Jagjit Singh has been transferred on the vacant post of superintendent of civil surgeon Ludhiana. In a separate order, Dr Bhag Mall has marked an enquiry to civil surgeon Ferozpur Dr Pardeep Chawla and asked him to submit the enquiry report within 21 days of the orders.

Earlier on August 21, in the complaint letter emailed to the Principal Secretary health department Winni Mahajan, the body had alleged that a superintendent of civil surgeon office Moga Jagjit Singh insulted representatives of PCMSA in front of civil surgeon Moga Dr Renu Mangla when the body was raising doctors’ concerns over Emergency duties of specialist doctors and having no facility of transport for field tours for the doctors during a meeting with civil surgeon Moga.

“Superintendent Jagjit Singh deliberately blamed the doctors that they were not willing to work and their attitude towards the government duties was too lethargic. He even threatened the doctors of dire consequences and also dared them to have face to face fight outside the civil surgeon office”, Dr. Indervir Singh Gill, senior vice president of PCMSA alleged.

It is pertinent to mention here that superintendent Jagjit Singh was transferred from Moga district few years ago in a similar case and then civil surgeon Moga Dr Amarjit Singh had written DO letter to the government against him in December 2011.
