Greetings of Canada day to all the visitors

Canada Day celebrates the birthday of Canada. On July 1, 1867 Canada became a new federation with its own constitution by signing the Constitution Act - formerly known as the British North America Act.

Canada Day is a national statutory holiday celebrated in all provinces and territories and it is a day off for most businesses. There is, of course, a lot more to Canada Day but the purpose of this page is only to give you a date and a brief history.

Canada day in 2015 is on a Wednesday so you'd have to take two days off (Monday and Tuesday or Thursday and Friday) to make Canada day a long weekend - which may not be such a bad idea: a five-day long weekend!....

New Delhi, July 1, 2015: The Supreme Court today adopted a tough stand on the settlement in rape cases, saying that any attempt of mediation between a rapist and a victim is against the dignity of women. The court's observation came days after the Madras High Court granted bail to a rape accused to mediate with the survivor.
Media reports that the apex court said that courts cannot take a soft approach on mediation as any such attempt is illegal. The court termed it a spectacular error on the part of the court to promote any such mediation. The top court said that there should be no mediation and no compromise in rape cases as a woman's body is her temple.

The Madras High Court's order was issued in response to an appeal and a bail plea from the convict, who was sentenced to seven years and slapped with a fine of 2 lakh rupees by a Women Court in Cuddalore, Tamil Nadu, in 2002. Holding that alternative dispute resolution such as mediation is now being used in criminal cases as well, Justice P Devadass of the court had said that the result of it is very good as there is no victor and no vanquished.

The victim, however, had said that she did not want to mediate with the culprit. The Supreme Court was today hearing an appeal filed by the Madhya Pradesh government in another rape case.....

Bhiwani (Harayana), July 1, 2015: A former spokesman of the Haryana Pradesh Congress Committee, Ashok Buwaniwala, has demanded re-survey of BPL families in state.

In a press release issued here today, he said the families living under below poverty line were not getting facilities being given under related schemes. Buwaniwala said names of several eligible families had been removed from BPL list or benefits of such people was being diverted to their favourites by the government employees. He further said the BPL families were facing arrogance of employees.

Flaying CM window scheme launched by the Manohar Lal Khattar led BJP government, Buwaniwala said it was launched for settlement of complaints of general public but it had become just an ‘eye-wash’. Several eligible families have made complaints through CM windows for their eligibility but all in vain. “Even after a lapse of months these complaints are still unnoticed and concerned officials are preparing false reports with connivance of accused,” he said adding the collusion in this matter could not be ruled out.
Demanding stern action after an impartial probe against such accused, Buwaniwala said the state government should take cooperation of social organisation to get a thorough report.
Welcoming decision of separate call centres for CM Window, he said special officer should be appointed for early settlement of complaints being received through it and complainant might know the status of his complaint.....

Chandigarh, July 1, 2015: Haryana Government has taken a major step in the interest of those people in the State who do not have any age proof for availing the benefit of Old Age Allowance scheme. For such people, the age of their children would be considered as age proof.
While giving this information here today, Social Justice and Empowerment Minister Mrs Kavita Jain said that since the year 2011, voter card, school certificate, birth certificate, driving licence and passport are valid for availing the benefit under the scheme in the State.
She said that for availing the benefit of Old Age Allowance scheme, the beneficiary should be 60 years or above and he should be the bona fide resident of Haryana. Apart from this, the income of the applicant including both husband and wife should not be exceeding Rs two lakh annually and the applicant should not have retired from government or semi government , local bodies, board, corporations and any business in which government has made financial investment.
The Minister said that complaints have been received from few districts that those people whose age is registered less than 60 years in the voter card, were getting prepared new voter cards from the Election Office by citing their age above 60 years just to take benefit of old age allowance scheme. Apart from this, the department also got an information that the age of few new applicants are registered less in the voter cards whereas they are above 60 years. Keeping all these facts in view, the new applicants were being asked to provide the age proof of their elder child in place of voter card, she added. She said that if the age of their elder child is 42 years or above and if the applicant is a female then her age would be considered as 60 years and if the applicant is male then his age would be considered as 63 years. All the District Social Welfare Officers in the State have been directed to approve all these cases for Old Age Allowance scheme, she added.
Mrs Jain said that no fresh directions have been issued by the department regarding other documents regarding the age proof like driving licence and passport. These documents are valid as age proof for availing benefit of old age allowance scheme since the year 2011. She also made it clear that it is mandatory for the applicants to furnish any one of such documents as age proof along with the application form.

Chandigarh, July 1, 2015: Reducing the interview marks to 12 per cent from 30 per cent reflects the true commitment of the present government in bringing complete transparency in the upcoming recruitment process to be started by Haryana Government at a large scale in the state.
The Chief Minister Mr. Manohar Lal said this while responding to a question asked about nepotism and favoritism prevailing in government jobs in the earlier regimes during a press conference held here today.
He said that present government has brought down the marks of interview which clearly shows that it had given importance to qualification and merit system. “We will also make the examination system leak proof and selection would be made purely on merit basis”.
In reply to another question, the Chief Minister said that compensation is being given to the persons as per the recommendation of T. P. Garg Commission. We are releasing an installment of interim relief and the remaining amount would be released after making a provision in the supplementary budget.
On being asked to comment on the quantum of additional burden in implementing innovative voluntary scheme “Mhara Gaon- Jagmag Gaon”, the Chief Minister said that the scheme would cost additional burden of Rs five crore. But we do not consider it a burden as people will enthusiastically pay their outstanding bills which would result in elimination of pendency as well as line losses. Line losses would be less than 20 per cent and bill realization would be over 90 per cent, he added.
In reply to another query, he said that a sum of Rs 290 crore had already been released to Cooperative Sugarmills in the state for payment of sugarcane to the farmers. Besides, financial assistance had also been released to Saraswati Sugarmill, Yamunanagar for similar purpose.....

Lt Gen RN Nair, Director General Recruiting inaugurated the function by cutting of ribbon.

Chandigarh, July 1, 2015: The campaign for mobilising farmers under the banner Jai Kisan Andolan, led by Yogendra Yadav, has taken a new impetus in Punjab. Yesterday meetings of the active farmers were held in the districts of Ferozepur and Sangrur and they constituted district campaign committees similar to the state campaign committee. It is worth mentioning here that at the state level a 55 member campaign committee covering 19 districts has been constituted with the following office bearers: Prof Manjit Singh, convener, Harjeshwarpal Singh, secretary, Tarsem Jodhan and Gurbax Singh both Co-convenor, Charanjit Singh and Inderjit Nandan, both Joint Secretary, Surinder Singh treasurer and Kamaldeep Singh media coordinator (members’ list enclosed).
The state campaign committee, besides mobilising farmers from Punjab, is also attracting farmers from the neighbouring states of Himachal Pradesh and Jammu and Kashmir for taking part in a 500KMs long march to the Parliment starting from 1st August from the village of Thikriwala in Barnala. The 10days long march, before culminating into a massive gathering of farmers at Delhi on the 10th August, would pass through four states, namely Punjab, Haryana, Uttar Pradesh, and Rajasthan.
The farmers are opposing Land Acquisition Bill which actually is no less than a land grabbing bill.
Prof Manjit Singh, convenor, state campaign committee for Jai Kisan Andolan stated that there is massive response to our appeal to the farmers and they are collecting soil in a ‘sacred’ pot from their respective villages only to present before the parliamentarians on the 10 August. Jai Kisan Andolan while opposing the passing of Land Acquisition Act in the present form also demands that there has to be legislation on the minimum income guarantee for the farmers, revised and universal crop insurance at nominal premium, and implementation of debt relief measures of the existing relevant Act. The union government does not seem to be honest in its promise of implementing Swaminathan report. In the defence of the farmers we are approaching all the farmers unions to build a broad platform and build a strong resistance to the bulldozing strategy of the government, Prof. Singh added.

Harjeshwarpal Singh, secretary, warned that more than 3 crore tribal people have been uprooted from their abodes in the name of development without caring for their proper rehabilitation. The present union government is insensitive to the lives and problems of the Indian farmers.....

Chandigarh, July 1, 2015: Haryana has become the first state in the country to launch an innovative voluntary scheme “Mhara Gaon- Jagmag Gaon” aimed at providing 24 hour uninterrupted power supply to rural domestic consumers in a phased manner with their active participation.
Haryana Chief Minister Mr Manohar Lal gave details about the scheme to the media persons in a press conference here today. The scheme is also aimed at further strengthening the distribution network system for the convenience of the people. Later in the day, the scheme was formally launched by him from village Dayalpur in district Kurukshetra.
While explaining about the scheme, the Chief Minister said that at present rural consumers were being supplied electricity for only 12 hours daily. In the first phase of the scheme, 83 feeders have been identified covering 310 villages having minimum line losses and which have made payment of their electricity bills. Power supply would be ensured for 15 hours in these villages from today onwards instead of 12 hour power supply they were getting at present.
The consumers in these 310 villages falling under these 83 feeders would now be urged to install their meters outside their houses and get their old electricity wires replaced with insulated wires. If this happens, power supply in these villages would then be increased by three more hours and these would be supplied power for 18 hours. In the next step, the power supply would be further increased to 21 hours on those feeders where the payment of bills would cross the mark of 90 per cent. Finally, the feeders where the outstanding amount of electricity bills has been paid in five equal installments, their penalty and interest would be waived off and power supply for 24 hours would be ensured on those feeders. Chief Minister said that this scheme would also be implemented in other villages that would approach the department for the same, he further added.
The Chief Minister said that ‘Bijli Panchayat’ would also be organized in all villages falling under such feeders. The officers of electricity department would also be present in these panchayats who would resolve the complaints of consumers on the spot. Complaints like replacement of meters, electricity wire, installment of new poles and enhancement of load would be resolved within a week. Apart from this, a Nodal Officer of the level of a Junior Engineer would also be appointed on every feeder, who would coordinate various activities at village level to ensure the effective implementation of the scheme, he added.
He said that under the scheme the electricity bills would depict the information like line losses on the particular feeder and pending amount of electricity bill so as to ensure transparency. In case, if any consumer cites any difference in the data, the department as well as officials concerned would be held accountable for the same. He disclosed that state would bear an additional expenditure of Rs 15 to 20 lakh per village for implementation of this scheme. He said that State government will continue to supply eight hours electricity to agriculture tubewells.
The Chief Minister said that adequate electricity is available in the state to meet the present requirement. But with the implementation of this scheme, the requirement of electricity would go further up and the government has already made elaborate arrangements for meeting the future power demands. Besides, strengthening the power infrastructure, 800 MW Super Critical Thermal Plant is being set up at Panipat to replace the existing obsolete units each of 110 MW. Similarly, 800 MW Super Critical Thermal Power Plant would also be established at Yamunanagar.
He said that special emphasis is being laid to generate renewable energy by installing solar power plants on roof tops. The government has set a target to generate 400 MW renewable energy by the year 2020. In addition, under the Central Government Deen Dayal Upadhyaya Gram Jyoti Yojana, a programme costing Rs 2000 crore has been launched for further strengthening distribution system in the state.
Those present on this occasion included Chief Secretary Mr. D.S.Dhesi, Principal Secretary to Chief Minister Mr. Sanjeev Kaushal, Special Principal Secretary to Chief Minister, Mr. R.K.Khullar, Additional Chief Secretary Power, Mr. Rajan Gupta, Director General Information, Public Relations and Cultural Affairs Department Dr. Abhilaksh Likhi, Political Advisor to Chief Minister Mr. Jagdish Chopra and Media Advisor Mr. Amit Arya.....

Chandigarh, July 01, 2015: “There is an imperative and urgent need of the Government of India and its related agencies and the Punjab Government to work aggressively and remove the existing disconnect between the farmers and the market which includes the Govt and private procurement agencies, if we have to improve the fate of the farmers”, said Mr Suresh Kumar, Addl Chief Secretary & Financial Commissioner- Development, Punjab at an Outreach Program for Agro & Food Processing Industry organised by Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) and Agricultural and Processed Food Products Export Development Authority (APEDA) at CII NR Headquarters in sector 31 A, here today.
“We understand that our farmers are going through a very tough phase and we are fully with you in these tough times, he shared while addressing hundreds of participants from different departments of Punjab Government, industry, farmers and other millers associations.
Lamenting further on the vicious circle of farmers’ poor condition existing across the country, he added that “It is so very depressing and disheartening that, at times the farmers have to cry in fields if there is low production owing to drought or untimely rains. And if the farmers are happy in the fields i.e the production is healthy, they have to cry in the market, because their produce doesn’t get them the desired price owing to huge supply and lesser demand and inadequate infrastructure and marketing facilities available”.
Regarding the apprehensions on Basmati’s demand, he clarified that “there is no reduction in its demand and the exports have not gone down at all. I would reassure the farmers that we would make all efforts to ensure proper market and buyers for their produce in October and November. But there is some unrest amongst the millers, processors, intermediaries and the farmers too on its procurement which needs to be sorted out at the earliest”.
He also called for self-imposed regulations by farmers. “I would however request the farmers to follow our guidelines on the timing of sowing of crops, its harvest, judicious use of pesticides and weedicides so as to maintain minimum global standards for better price and profits. I would also urge farmers to just do farming and not mining on the soil, i.e avoid excessive cultivation and undue burden on it”, he added.
Regarding Punjab’s contribution in processed food industry, he mentioned that “Only 15 % of our produce is processed and even being the food bowl of the country, we are the net importer of wheat. Value addition of the farm produce would benefit the state in tremendous ways. There is immense untapped potential in Punjab for processed food industry in the fields of maize, fruit juices, vegetables, honey, potato chips, dairy products, basmati etc. it would help the cause of the farmer as well. The government is fully committed to promote processed food industry in Punjab and our fiscal incentives in this regard include VAT exemption for 10 years which would lead to break even of all capital investment for plants in 10 years. We have also planned 2 mega food parks in Punjab”.
“Cluster development is another key focus of our Govt. I would request CII and APEDA to assist us in this reagard and get genuine participants for our food processing clusters at Rajpura, Garhshankar, Somana and Hoshairpur which are belts of fruits and vegetables etc”, ,he added.
Mr Krishan Kumar, Chairman, Agricultural and Processed Food Products Export Development Authority (APEDA) shared that “India is the 6th largest exporter of farm produce commodities but we are far behind as far as processed food is concerned. The processed food industry hasincredible potential and scope in Punjab and needs a strong push. And if it prospers here, Punjab’s economy prosper as a whole. APEDA is fully committed to promote Agri exports and we have various schemes in association with the state government to set up various food processing plants across Punjab.
“Regarding the non-tariff barriers, he mentioned that “Our farmers and the industry need to ensure that the farm produce satisfy the minimum standards of quality so that other countries do not reject our commodities on the basis of standards”, he added.
“Further we need the state Govt’s support to strengthen backward linkages to reach out to the last farmer in the remotest area and educate him at block and village level. We have alsoidentified Punjab as a state which needs drastic infrastructure improvements for various crops and GoI would fund it in association with the state Govt. We are conducting study in this regard”.
Mr S S Bhogal, Chairman, CII Punjab State Council & Managing Partner, Bhogal Sales Corporation shared that “As this region, better known as the Food Bowl of the country is today at cross roads because of increasing input costs, inclement weather patterns and experts dwelling on the need to break from the traditional wheat & paddy cycle and enhance value addition so as to make farming & food industry a viable option for people associated with this critical sector. CII is all geared up to actively partner with the farmers, govt and the industry to promote the food processing sector”.

“Today’s interaction provides an excellent opportunity for both the state Government and the Industry and Farmer community to chalk out a common Roadmap for the progress & holistic development of Agro & Food processing sector in the state”, he added.....
