Relief For Mobile Users As Trai Cuts MNP Fee To Just Rs 4 Telcos Welcome Move

Relief For Mobile Users As Trai Cuts MNP Fee To Just Rs 4 Telcos Welcome Move

India’s telecom regulator, Trai, on Wednesday reduced the fee for Mobile Number Portability (MNP) facility to a maximum to Rs 4 from present Rs 19, which means mobile phone users would now need to pay much lower for the facility. Trai’s decision comes on the back of consultation paper issued on December 18, 2017, and several stakeholder views.

Telcos had then said that the charge should be lowered to Rs 2 or abolished altogether, as some carriers absorb the charge. However, MNP service providers had wanted the charge to stay at Rs 19.

The Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (Trai) said the decision to reduce the fee was based on the fact that costs of operations of MNP service providers had substantially gone down and at the same time the volume of MNP traffic had soared. It added that change would come into effect immediately.

“After taking into consideration the views/ comments received from stakeholders and the other relevant facts, the Authority has decided that the per port transaction charge may be reduced as the costs of operations of MNP service providers have substantially gone down and at the same time the volume of MNP traffic has increased by leaps and bounds,” the regulator said. “As a result of this amendment, there will be an automatic reduction in the ceiling of the charges leviable from subscribers for MNP from Rs 19 to Rs 4.”

Rajan S. Mathews, Director General of COAI, which represents GSM telcos, said, “We welcome the decision of TRAI to reduce the MNP per port transaction charge to Rs. 4 for each successful porting request.”

He said that a revision was long overdue, and operators had been requesting the regulator to bring down this charge as the MNP transaction has increased manifold since the inception of MNP. In several instances, the operators were bearing this cost on behalf of the customers approaching them for the port-in. Hence, it will be beneficial for both customers and operators as the cost of porting will be greatly reduced, he added.

Traffic Plan on National Highway For 01.02.2018

Kashmir News Network

Traffic Plan on National Highway For 01.02.2018

The weather along the NHW is by and large clear. The commuters are, however, advised to confirm status of the road from Traffic Control Units at Srinagar, Ramban and Jammu before starting jouney on the NHW as chances of occuring of sudden landslides/shooting stones at vulnerable/landslide prone areas during night hours cannot be ruled out.

Keeping in view the over all condition of the road, especially between Jawahar Tunnel and Ramban coupled with narrow width of the NHW at some places, allowing two way movement of HMVs on the NHW is not feasible.

Subject to fair weather and good condition of the road, in order to facilitate the passengers and emergency vehicles on 01.02.2018, movement of passenger vehicles/LMVs on the NHW shall be allowed both ways viz. from Srinagar towards Jammu and vice versa in a very strict manner and for a specified time. Under the said plan, movement of passenger vehicles/LMVs shall be allowed from Nagrota (Jammu) from 0600 hours upto 1000 hours and from Udhampur upto 1100 hours only. Similarly, movement of passenger vehicles/LMVs shall be allowed from Levdora (Qazigund) from 0700 upto 1400 hours strictly beyond which no Jammu bound passenger vehicle/LMV shall be allowed to cross the said location for onwards journey. No movement of any Jammu bound passenger vehicle/LMV shall be allowed from Pantha Chowk, Srinagar after 1200 hours to avoid congestion on the NHW.

The movement of Load carriers shall be one way only and tomorrow on 01.02.2018 movement of these vehicles shall be allowed from Srinagar towards Jammu side in a regulated manner. Under the said plan movement of load carriers (except trailers/multi-axle vehicles)shall be allowed from Levdora, Qazigund from 0700 hours (depending on weather/road condition) and all these vehicles shall cross Jawahar Tunnel upto 1230 hours positively.

Strict implementation of the cut off timings/traffic plan, as above, shall be ensured. Moreover, the commuters are advised to exhibit highest order of driving discipline on the NHW in general and while crossing Chenani-Nashri Tunnel in particular. They shall avoid overtaking, over speeding, doubling, especially inside the tunnel and adhere to the road signs and instructions/ Do’s and Don’ts displayed on either sides of the Tunnel for their safe crossing and hassle free movement of traffic inside the tunnel.

No movement of load carriers and convoys of Army, BSF, CRPF, ITBP, SSB etc. shall be allowed from Jammu towards Srinagar side on 01.02.2018 under any circumstances in order to ensure smooth flow of traffic on the NHW.

Commuters are requested/advised that vehicles are not parked in any landslide/ vulnerable zone of NHW, especially from Jawahar Tunnel – Ramban and Jawahar Tunnel-Lower Munda under any circumstance. The said road stretches are vulnerable/slide prone zone and therefore should be kept free from all sorts of traffic to avoid any eventuality.

People are requested to undertake journey on the National Highway after confirming status of the road from TCUs as the chances of occurring of sudden land slides on the NHW cannot be ruled out. They shall contact TCU Srinagar (01942450022, 2485396), TCU Ramban (9419993745) and TCU Jammu (01912459048, 9419147732) to get the status of the road before starting their journey. They shall also contact Traffic Police officers viz. IGP Traffic J&K (9419192362); SSP Traffic, Rural Kashmir (9419091281); SSP Traffic NHW (9596304020); Dy.SsP Traffic Udhampur/Reasi (9419013015); Ramban (9419185925); Banihal (9419233978) and Dy.SP Traffic, Kulgam/Qazigund (9697009080) in case of any assistance en-route. 

Result ‘Discrepancies’ Leave Many 10th Class Students, Parents ‘Frustrated

Result ‘Discrepancies’ Leave Many 10th Class Students, Parents ‘Frustrated

BOSE Chairman says committee will be formed, assures action

Hundreds of students and their parents have been left virtually frustrated by State Board of School Education owning to “discrepancies” in the 10th class results declared by the J&KBOSE earlier this month.

After going through “turbulent times”, a number of students, who were earlier shown to have qualified with lesser grade or even failed in the 10th class, have been declared to have qualified with better grades on getting Xerox copies of the answer sheets, provided ten days after the results by the JKBOSE.

One of the students, Arusha Naseer (8161246), who was shown to have got E2 grade in Hindi paper with overall remarks of “qualified but to improve” on getting Xerox copy has distinction with 417 out of 500 marks.

Arusha Naseer had results of A1 (10 grade) in mathematics and science while she had grade 9 and 7 in social science and English.

“I was at a loss to comprehend how she could get E2 grade in Hindi and better marks in other subjects,” Arusha’s mother and teacher Gazala Syed Naseer told GNS. Subsequently, she said: “we decided to get Xerox copy and revaluate the (Hindi) paper.”

“When we reached the BOSE office, there was sea of people with grievance similar to ours. After waiting for few hours in a queue, we were first told that our daughter was absent as per records and once we confronted BOSE official how she is shown E2 grade in marks sheet, they advised us to get Xerox copies,” she said, adding, “we applied and got the Xerox after 10 days. We cannot describe how we spent all these days. It was frustrating.” Arusha, she says, now has distinction as her grade in Hindi is a better one.

“We firmly think that this was a not mistake but a deliberate attempt by the BOSE to keep discrepancies in the result to get revenue out of Xerox and revaluation process,” she said. “Honestly speaking, when we thought of applying for the Xerox and revaluation, we thought we were only few but there were sea of people,” she said and urged the BOSE to respect the sentiments of students and the parents.

“It is painful for student and parents to undergo through such turbulent times. Metric certificate is very valid. I request Board authorities not to make business out of it and not rush through the results and make people suffer. Let them take fifteen days more to declare results,” she added. A number of other students and parents shared same details.

BOSE Chairperson Veena Pandita denied mass scale discrepancies even though she assured that a committee would be constituted to look into it.

She also rejected claims by parents that BOSE was doing business on account of Xerox and revaluation process.

“Now you have brought it into my notice I will look into it. We cannot out rightly reject a few errors which would be due to decoding or computer error,” I will also constitute a committee to look into all the discrepancies”, she said.

Asked about the allegations by parents that the BOSE has turned Xerox and evaluation process a business, she said: “the money goes into the govt exchequer. I out rightly reject such claims.

J&K Government Plans To Abolish Posts Which Are Vacant For 5 Years

The Government is planning to abolish all posts which have been vacant for more than five years, and has directed all ministries and department to submit a comprehensive report on the matter

In an office memorandum, the Finance Ministry said it had asked all ministries and departments to submit an action-taken report regarding abolition of posts vacant for more than five years.

Some departments and ministries have responded but some, instead of providing a comprehensive report, have submitted the requisite information in piecemeal manner, it said.

Therefore, financial advisors and joint  secretaries (administration)  of all ministries/ departments are requested to identify the posts which are vacant for more than five years and submit a comprehensive report on abolition of such posts in main ministry and their respective subordinate organisations at the earliest, the office memorandum, dated January 16, 2018, said.

Following this, the Ministry of Home Affairs has directed all its additional secretaries, joint secretaries, chiefs of paramilitary forces and other attached organisations to submit comprehensive reports, a home ministry official said.

According to a preliminary estimate, there are several thousand central government posts which are lying vacant for five or more years, the official said. (PTI)

J&K: Bail Denied To Judicial Officer involved in Rape Case

J&K: Bail Denied To Judicial Officer involved in Rape Case

Presiding Officer Fast Track Court Haq Nawaz Zargar on Tuesday rejected the bail application of Rajesh Kumar Abrol, Sub-Judge (under suspension), who is allegedly involved in a rape case.

After hearing APP Vijay Sharma along with Advocate Deepika Singh Rajawat for the State/complainant, the court observed, “petitioner being a Judicial Officer, himself till his suspension, must be knowing the ethics and cautions that need to be taken while occupying the divine chair”.

“The Judicial Officers cannot have two standards, one in the court and other in the public life. The bench mark is the impeccable, integrity, honesty, both the inside and outside the court, without giving any chance to anyone to raise any kind of finger towards him”, the court said, adding “he cannot even remotely remain unworthy of the office he occupies”.

Court further observed, “it is true that offence of rape is more serious offences against the woman and the person who is prima facie found to have committed such offences is not entitled to the concession of bail.

The offences more particularly against the women have been viewed to be offences against the society at large and letting the petitioner on bail in such heinous offences, if prima facie, committed, would definitely have deleterious effect on the mind of general public and would encourage re-occurrence of such crime”.

With these observations, court rejected the bail application.

Delhi Court Rejects Shabir Shah’s Bail Plea

Delhi Court Rejects Shabir Shah’s Bail Plea

A Delhi court Wednesday rejected the bail plea of Kashmiri Pro-freedom leader Shabir Shah in a 2007 money laundering case related to alleged terror financing.

Additional Sessions Judge Sidharth Sharma, who had in August last year denied the relief to Shah citing the ongoing probe, dismissed his fresh bail plea.

In his bail application filed through advocate M S Khan, the accused had told the court that investigation into the case was complete as the agency has filed its charge sheet and there was no chance for Shah to hamper the probe.

The court had on August 22 last year rejected Shah’s earlier bail plea after the ED said it was probing whether he had received money to promote terrorism in India.

On November 15, the court had framed money laundering charges against Shah and alleged hawala dealer Mohammad Aslam Wani in the case. Both the accused have pleaded not guilty and claimed trial.

The central probe agency, in its charge sheet filed under sections of the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA), had furnished Shah’s statements where he had allegedly told the investigators that he had “no source of income of his own” and that had “not filed any Income Tax Return (ITR).”

The probe agency had recorded the statement of 36-year- old Wani where he allegedly said that he came to Delhi from Srinagar “at the directions of Shah” sometime in April, 2003 and that was the first time he had met him. Wani was arrested by the ED on August 6 from Srinagar.

The ED alleged that Wani was asked by Shah to “work for him (on a commission basis) in collecting hawala money from Delhi and deliver to him at Srinagar”.

The case dates back to August 2005 in which the Delhi Police’s Special Cell had earlier arrested Wani. PTI

10 Most Corrupt Police Forces in the World, Must Read

10 Most Corrupt Police Forces in the World, Must Read

Just about every country deals with corruption in one way or another, but some can’t even trust the people whose sole job is to protect them. All around the world, police forces have been plagued by deep-rooted corruption and criminal activity that have hurt society and endangered its citizens. Many policemen are underpaid and turn to corruption to make more money, but their selfish deeds have wreaked havoc on countries that desperately need help. Here are the 10 most corrupt police forces in the world

Haiti: Haiti is notorious for having one of the most corrupt police forces in the world. The Haitian police have negatively influenced society and Haitian culture with their unethical practices for quite awhile. In recent years, the Haitian National Police have violated various human rights and broken numerous laws, such as kidnapping, drug trafficking and police brutality. They have even resisted preventing or responding to gang-related violence. The lawlessness of the HNP appears to have died down slightly after the catastrophic earthquake in January 2010, but only time will tell if it will stay this way.

Mexico: Mexico has one of the most corrupt police forces in the world and it continues to get worse every day. Crime is at an all-time high in Mexico City and border towns, but many police officers are only making it worse. Mexican police turn to corruption to find other means of money because the pay is low. Police will bribe criminals and extort tourists and have been known to give victims the option of “plata o plomo,” which means they can either accept a bribe or be killed. Mexican police also work with drug cartels to protect them and enforce drug trafficking. They often ignore reported crimes and do not investigate them, often imprisoning innocent citizens to cover up their dirty work.

Kenya: Kenya has one of the most corrupt police forces in the world. According to a Transparency International repot, an astounding 92 percent of Kenyans ranked their police as the most corrupt and many of them have paid a bribe to Kenyan police within the last 12 months. Citizens are bribed into paying police for access to various services, such as Customs, healthcare, police, education, registration and permits, and even utility services. Kenyan police have even targeted Somali refugees who’ve crossed the border in desperation by raping, beating and blackmailing them.

Uzbekistan: The Ministry of Interior (MOI) controls the police in Uzbekistan, which has a long history of corruption. The Uzbekistan police have been known to detain citizens to extort bribes and take away their human rights. Police brutality and bribery have also been committed by Uzbekistan law enforcement.

Bribery is used in Uzbekistan for just about everything – traffic stops, civil lawsuits and even admission to leading educational institutions. With the rise of the bribery system, police protection does not come free to the people of Uzbekistan.

Burma: Burma is another country with a troubled police force. Corruption among police is nothing out of the norm here. The Burma police force has been known to make victims pay for criminal investigations and often extort money from civilians. Burma is ruled by a highly authoritarian military regime, which has a direct hold on the police force and the rights of citizens.

Iraq: The Iraqi police have had a long history of corruption and, despite funds and retraining efforts, they’ve managed to maintain their corruption. Iraqi police continue to be highly sectarian and participate in kidnappings, ransom payments and bribery. They have proven to be ineffective at controlling terrorism efforts and protecting civilians in the ways they need to be.

Somalia: The Somali police force is one of the most corrupt agencies in the world. This war-torn country continues to face a great deal of adversity and civilians are at the greatest risk. Somali police have been known to be ineffective and crooked. Because they are underpaid, many Somali police officers steal, extort, bribe and harass individuals to get money. They’ve also had a history of police brutality and often ignore societal violence. In 2009, nearly 1,000 Somali police officers went missing after receiving extensive training funded by the German government. It is believed that the police officers escaped to join the Islamist militia Al-Shabaab

.Afghanistan: Afghanistan has had one of the most corrupt police forces in the world, and it seems like it’s only getting worse with time. Graft has made it impossible for Afghan police to improve and effectively do their job, but corruption is witnessed within the police force, as well. Afghan police have been known to extort money and inflict violence on civilians at police checkpoints around the country. Police also bribe civilians into paying them for their release from prison or to avoid arrest.

Although police corruption has gotten slightly better with international efforts and retraining, it continues to suffer at the whim of governmental corruption and power.

Sudan: Sudan is one of the most corrupt countries for various reasons. Not only has their former president Oman Al-Bashir been indicted for war crimes and genocide, but this nation suffers from a corrupt police force. Sudanese police have been known to extort bribes from civilians in order to supplement their incomes. Police rarely file reports or investigate crimes, and often use violence and retaliation against people who complain about police abuses.

Russia: Russian government is no stranger to corruption, especially within its police force. Within recent years, facts have surfaced about the corruption and crimes being committed by Russian police officers. Police brutality, extorting bribes and arresting innocent citizens are all crimes that have been committed among Russian police forces. In order to ensure monthly quotas and make ends meet, Russian police turn to corruption and bribery.

IT Department Attaches Shahrukh Khan’s Farmhouse

IT Department Attaches Shahrukh Khan’s Farmhouse

Bollywood superstar Shahrukh Khan’s Alibaug farmhouse in Maharashtra has been provisionally attached by the Income Tax department under the new Benami Transactions (Prohibition) Amended Act, 2016, said a media report.

Khan, through Deja Vu Farms, made an application for purchase of agriculture land for farming in Alibaug, but subsequently converted the land into a farmhouse for personal use, reported The Indian Express. This, the tax authority said, was a “benami transaction” under Section 2 (9) of the Act, mentioned the report and the tax authority alleged that Deja Vu Farms acted as benamidar for Khan.

The tax department alleged that Deja Vu Farms had so far not shown any income from farming activity and has also alleged that the Khan’s firm had taken unsecured loans of Rs 8.4 crore from Khan for the purchase of land in Alibaug, said the report.

The provisional attachment by the tax authority will have to be ratified by the adjudicating authority of Income Tax after giving Khan a chance to present his arguments on the provisional attachment, said the report.

In case, according to the report, adjudicating authority confirms the attachment, Khan can challenge the order before the Income Tax Appellate Tribunal.

The case pertaining to Deja Vu Farms came under the tax scanner last year after Raigad district collector Vijay Suryavanshi claimed that a farmhouse, allegedly owned by the actor along the sea in Alibaug, was among 87 farmhouses on which the collector’s office had sought legal opinion for action over alleged Coastal Regulatory Zone (CRZ) violations, said the report.

The report also mentioned that subsequently, a complaint was also filed at a Mumbai police station, alleging that Khan had violated the Maharashtra Tenancy and Agricultural Lands Act — it bars transfer of agriculture land to a non-agriculturist without the permission of the collector or state government.

The Alibaug farmhouse of Khan, according to the tax department, is spread over 19,960 sq metres and has amenities such as a swimming pool, beach and a private helipad, said the report.

According to the Ministry of Corporate Affairs, Gauri Khan’s father Ramesh Chibba, her mother Savita Chibba and her sister Namita Chibba are directors of Deja Vu Farms, the report mentioned.

Under the Act, a benami transaction means any transaction in which property is transferred to one person for a consideration paid or provided by another person. The Act provides for provisional attachment and subsequent confiscation of benami properties, whether movable or immovable. It also allows for prosecution of the beneficial owner, the benamidar and the abettor to benami transactions, which may result in rigorous imprisonment up to seven years and a fine of up to 25 per cent of fair market value of the property.

HADITH FOR THE DAY

HADITH FOR THE DAY

BY

SHAHID WANI

Abu Juhaifah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Prophet (PBUH) made a bond of brotherhood between Salman and Abud-Darda’. Salman paid a visit to Abud-Darda’ and found Umm Darda’ (his wife) dressed in shabby clothes and asked her why she was in that state. She replied: “Your brother Abud-Darda’ is not interested in (the luxuries of) this world. In the meantime Abud-Darda’ came in and prepared a meal for Salman. Salman requested Abud-Darda’ to eat (with him) but Abud-Darda’ said: “I am fasting.” Salman said: “I am not going to eat unless you eat.” So, Abud-Darda’ ate (with Salman). When it was night and (a part of the night passed), Abud-Darda’ got up (to offer the night prayer) but Salman asked him to sleep and Abud-Darda’ slept. After some time Abud- Darda’ again got up but Salman asked him to sleep. When it was the last hours of the night, Salman asked him to get up and both of them offered (Tahajjud) prayer. Then Salman told Abud-Darda’: “You owe a duty to your Rubb, you owe a duty to your body; you owe a duty to your family; so you should give to every one his due. Abud-Darda’ came to the Prophet (PBUH) and reported the whole story. Prophet (PBUH) said, “Salman is right”. [Al-Bukhari].

Rape and Murder of Ashifa: Protesters Block Road in Jammu Demanding Arrest of Culprits

A day after family of Bakarwal minor girl Ashifa met Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti, the Gujjar Bakarwal community Tuesday staged a protest in Jammu and halted vehicular movement near Jewel Chowk for hours.

The protesters demanded justice against gruesome act and capital punishment for the culprits who are involved in the rape and murder of Ashifa.

Reports said that a large number of people carried out a protest rally and then staged a sit-in near Jewel Chowk Jammu.

The protesters said that the state government has failed to protect the citizens: no mother, sister and daughter are safe in the state. “Even the CM of the state is herself a female and could have done a lot to safeguard the women but she utterly failed to do so. When it was Nirbaya rape and murder case whole India was outraged but the same is not seen in Aasifa’s case because these branded civil society have become racist just like government,” they said.

The protesters said that government’s intention to shield culprits became clear when they arrested social activist Talib Hussain for raising voice against this gruesome rape and murder.

Civil and police officials visited the spot and pacified them with an assurance that Crime Branch has already been investigating the case.
