 ‘Women going to pubs in short skirts is against Indian culture’: Goa PWD Min
After endorsing and supporting the moral policing goon and Sri Ram Sena Chief Pramod Muthalik’s view that women going to pubs in short skirts is against Indian culture, Goa PWD Minister Sudin Dhavalkar added another controversy saying ‘bikinis should be banned on state’s beaches’.
“Wearing bikinis should be banned on Goa’s beaches,” said Dhavalikar, state’s Public Works Department Minister, comments that may not go down well with hordes of foreign tourists who throng Goa’s shores every year to soak in the sun. 

“We should not allow girls with bikinis to enter public places because it very difficult to control people who arrive in Goa from different states. By the time victim reaches the police it is too late. It is better to control such type of activities on the beaches,” he said. 
Dhavalikar, whose Maharashtrawadi Gomantak Party is an ally of ruling BJP, said even Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar was in favour of such a ban. 
“Chief minister knows it very well what I say. He has already started taking action against massage parlours. He will take up this issue (banning bikinis) in a different way to stop this nonsense,” he said.
Parrikar was not available for comment but BJP distanced itself from the remarks, saying bikinis cannot be banned. 
“According to me, something which is not a sin across India, cannot be a sin in Goa,” BJP Goa spokesman Wilfred Mesquita told a news agency. 
He said when bikinis are not banned across India “we cannot ban them in Goa”. 
“Why bikinis are required to swim in the sea. In earlier days, there was no bikini (but girls swam),” Dhavalikar said. 
“Young girls going to pubs in short dresses does not fit in our culture. What will happen to our Goan culture, if we allow this?… The scantily dressed girls visiting pubs project wrong culture and this should be stopped,” he had said on Tuesday. 
Congress party’s Goa unit has reacted strongly to “moral policing” by Dhavalikar and couriered a mini skirt to the minister’s residence as a mark of protest. 
“We will not tolerate moral policing. The Constitution allows those above 18 years to decide for themselves what is good or bad,” Congress spokesman Durgadas Kamat said. 


 

Argentina beat Swiss : Belgium beat USA 2-1

   Belgium beat USA 2-1 to set up a QF date with Argentina

Belgium defeated United States of America 2-1 in a pulsating contest, while Angel Di Maria came to Argentina’s rescue in the dying minutes of extra-time to set up a quarterfinal clash against each other in the FIFA World Cup.
Kevin De Bruyne and substitute Romelu Lukaku’s scored two goals in the first half of extra-time before teenager Julian Green, who came in the second period of extra-time, reduced the deficit for USA with his first touch.Belgium will now face two-time champions Argentina in the quarterfinals in Brasilia on Saturday after the La Albiceleste’s rode on a goal from Di Maria deep into additional time to beat Switzerland 1-0 in Sao Paulo in another last-16 match. After both Belgium and USA failed to break the stalemate in regulation time, it took a super effort from De Bruyne to open the scoring in the 92nd minute. The Wolfsburg midfielder leapt onto Lukaku’s assist to fire low into the corner. Lukaku then doubled the lead in the 106th minute, this time with an assist from De Bruyne, to put the game beyound USA’s reach. But USA did not give up without a fight and fired back when Bayern Munich teenager Green pulled one back with a first-time volley from a Michael Bradley pass. Belgium had to go through some nervous moments in the final 10 minutes of the match but did enough to hold on to their slender lead. Earlier Di Maria’s scored a late extra-time goal to help Argentina eke out a hard-fought 1-0 win over Switzerland and progress to the quarterfinals. He didn’t score but four-time world footballer of the year and skipper Lionel Messi set up Di Maria for the only goal of the match deep into extra-time after both the teams were tied 0-0 in regulation 90 minutes. As expected Argentina controlled the lions share of possession in the match but their strikers failed breach the stubborn Swiss defence. The game plan for the Swiss was to mark Messi closely and create chances in counter-attack. They managed to do that for most part of the game before the Argentine skipper came up with a brilliant run to set it up for Di Maria who made no mistake in finding the back of the net with a left-footer in the 118th minute. A goalless draw seemed inevitable until Messi produced one of his patented dribbles to set up Di Maria. After the change of ends it was all Argentina as they exerted relentless pressure on the Swiss defence with persistent attacks. Marcos Rojo broke into the left of the Swiss penalty area but fired straight at Diego Benaglio before Gonzalo Higuain’s close-range header was acrobatically tipped over by the Swiss goalie. Rodrigo Palacio, who came in for Ezequiel Lavezzi with just 16 minutes remaining, was straight in action as he within seconds headed a Messi cross wide from six yards out. Swiftly, Messi gathered a poor clearance on the edge of the box, side-stepped his marker and fires a low drive, which Benaglio did well to first keep out and then jump on amid flying boots.



 

Police shielding culprits who attempted to rape AAP leader in Bihar

The Aam Aadmi Party strongly condemns the role of Bihar Police in shielding the culprits who attempted to rape the party’s candidate from Buxar Lok Sabha constituency, Dr Shweta Pathak.
The incident reflects the deteriorating law and order situation in the state, where the hoodlums who attempted to rape a 33 year-old medical doctor last week are still at large.
What can be more shameful than the role played by the state police in the entire matter ? The police instead of nabbing the culprits who tried to commit a heinous crime in broad daylight, brutally beat up Dr Pathak in the police station.
Dr Pathak, who had not even recovered from the trauma of attempted rape against her, went through hell again when the police in complete connivance with the relatives of the accused, beat her up, causing severe injuries in her neck, arms and legs.
Photographs posted on social media by the local people and friends of Dr Pathak show the extent of police brutality on a woman victim, who was demanding justice.
The AAP demands that all the police officials involved in this shameful incident should be immediately suspended and a judicial inquiry be ordered on how the police handled the entire matter.
The AAP leaders will be visiting Bihar to meet Dr Pathak and the party will submit a memorandum to the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC), seeking an independent inquiry into the entire matter.

Circulating the You Tube link on Smoking Gun Recovered

Sikhs Helping Sikhs
To Me
 
Today at 11:18 AM
 
UNITED SIKHS premiered on 24th June 2014 on Sangat TV the first episode of a three-part documentary series ‘Unheard Voices’, which tells the story of how Sikhs continue their 30-year wait for justice for the thousands of innocent pilgrims who were killed by the Indian Army and for the restitution of the Sikh Reference Library, whose contents were removed before it was burnt by the Army during the attack on the Darbar Sahib (Golden Temple) Complex. This massacre of pilgrims took place during the Indian Army attack, codenamed Blue Star, on Darbar Sahib from the 1st of June to the 6th of June 1984, killing thousands whilst desecrating the sanctum sanctorum of Sikhs.

This 20-minute episode of ‘The Smoking Gun Recovered’ was premiered on Sangat TV via Sky 847 (Europe) on the 24th of June 2014 at 8.30pm BST and repeated on Friday the 27th of June at 9.00 to 9.30pm. It is viewable on You Tube atwww.youtube.com/UNITEDSIKHSTV The remaining two episodes of the Unheard Voices series — ‘In the Line of Fire’ and ‘A Body of Evidence’ will be premiered on Sangat TV in July, on a date to be announced at https://www.facebook.com/UNITEDSIKHS.org andtwitter.com/unitedsikhs

‘The Smoking Gun Recovered’, presents eyewitness accounts of how the contents of the Sikh Reference Library, which was located in the Darbar Sahib complex and which held the invaluable heritage of the Sikhs, were removed by the Indian Army before it was burnt during the June 1984 attack. The Library housed historical saroops of Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji, the eternal Sikh Guru, one of which was dated 1604.

In 1991, the Government of India, under pressure from Sikhs for the return of their heritage, returned some 29 books, which included four original Accession Registers that were a catalogue of the Library’s contents. The Registers were the ‘smoking gun’ that proved that the Library’s contents, including the Saroops of Guru Granth Sahib Ji, were removed by the Indian Government before the Library was burnt. Despite a Punjab and Haryana High Court order in 2004, the Indian Government has failed to return the contents of the Library.

UNITED SIKHS seeks your support so that we may advocate for the restitution of the Sikh Reference Library whose contents were removed by the Indian Army before it was burnt in June 1984 and to deliver justice for the thousands of innocent victims who perished at Darbar Sahib in June 1984.

Ayushmann Khurana: From a Rejected Candidate to a Role Model

2072014

Life comes back a full circle for the talented actor on ‘India’s Best Cine Stars Ki Khoj’

At the recently held press conference of Zee TV’snext big-ticket non-fiction show ‘Cera India’s Best Cine Stars Ki Khoj’, actor Ayushmann Khuranarevealed that even though he has been currently brought on board as a role model and a source of inspiration for this season’s contestants, he was once a rejected candidate of the same show. Showing up at the auditions as a lanky, somewhat self-conscious  19 year old, Ayushmann had given the reality show a shot several years ago  in the hopes of landing his dream job as a lead actor in Bollywood.

Today, many years later, as he has successfully carved a niche for himself as a multi-faceted, youth icon and a mainstream actor with a distinct following of his own, he has been brought on board ‘Cera India’s Best Cinestars Ki Khoj’ as a ‘Bollywood Buddy’ who will share valuable insights with the current crop of contestants … pointers that will help them understand the ground realities of working in the industry. In two episodes that form a part of the reality show’s  audition phase, Ayushmann will be seated alongside the judges of the show Sonali Bendre and Dhoom 3 director Vijay Krishna Acharya and will offer feedback and constructive criticism to the performing candidates. He will even be involved with the selection process of the candidates.

“It is a feeling of  life coming back a full circle when India’s best Cinestars Ki Khoj that had once rejected me, has now brought me on board as a role model for its contestants. Back then, the industry was not as open to unconventional artistes as it is today. Of course, I was very raw back then, have worked on myself a great deal. But it is indeed a feeling of vindication when the doors that were once closed on you, welcome you with open arms” says the actor. Bravo, Ayushmann! Way to go!

Catch Parineeti Chopra and Ayushmann Khurana amongst a slew of other film achievers join hands with judges Sonali Bendre and Victor in selecting the best candidates for ‘Cera India’s Best Cine Stars Ki Khoj powered by Glam-Up’. The show premieres on Saturday, 5th July at 9 PM only on Zee TV.


 

Clear conflict of interest of Nitin Gadkari

Clear conflict of interest of Nitin Gadkari
From: Media Cell AAP  Tue, 1 Jul ’14 6:42p

                                              Tuesday, July 1

The established link of union surface transport minister and former BJP President, Mr Nitin Gadkari, with a Nagpur based e-rickshaw manufacturing company is a clear case of direct conflict of interest.
The weak defence offered by Mr Gadkari conceals more facts than revealing the real situation.
The Aam Aadmi Party demands that Prime Minister Mr Narendra Modi should atleast change Mr Gadkari’s portfolio following the latest revelations about his conflict of interest, which he is unable to deny.
Though Mr Modi had promised clean administration in his election campaign and had attacked the Congress-led UPA regime for its nepotism, but within a month of coming into power, his government is heading in the same direction and appears to be devoid of political morality.
Mr Gadkari has not been able to deny any of the facts mentioned in the news story published by the Indian Express on Tuesday. He has not denied that Purti Green Technologies Pvt Ltd, is now owned by his brother-in-law.
The former BJP President has also not disputed the fact that the company is part of the Purti Group, which was founded by him.    
By today saying that Mr Gadkari “has no commercial interest whatsoever with the e-rickshaw manufacturing sector”, he has tried to mislead the country.  
Is it not a fact that Mr Gadkari had attended a function with Mr Sharad Pawar at Nagpur in January last year to showcase e-rickshaws manufactured by Purti Green Technologies ?            
Can Mr Gadkari deny his link with the Deen Dayal Trust, which according to him was to bear a part of the manufacturing cost of these battery-run rickshaws ?
What is worse is that Mr Gadkari shrouded his business interest in the e-rickshaw business by trying to project the steps being taken by his ministry as welfare steps for operators and drivers.
It is shocking that Mr Gadkari has tried to mix his family business with his ministry’s official functioning, which is a clear act of impropriety.
The Prime Minister should ensure that his council of ministers and particularly the senior ministers do not play with the sentiments of poor people. (ENDS)

Modi government forgets electoral promise, does nothing to curb inflation

2072014

From: AAP Media Cell  Tue, 1 Jul ’14 7:57p
                                   Tuesday, July 1

Narendra Modi led NDA government’s recent decisions indicate that inflation and hardship faced by the common man due to rising prices of essential commodities is missing from its agenda. Instead of taking immediate steps to curb inflation, the government has added to common man’s misery by first increasing rail fares and increasing import duty on sugar leading to price rise and then hiking LPG price by 16.5 rupees. Price of petrol has also gone up.

It’s shocking to see that Narendra Modi led BJP, which won the Lok Sabha elections on the plank of curbing inflation, has shown complete indifference to the rising prices of essential commodities including vegetables and sugar, and has done nothing but lip service to contain rising prices.

The Aam Aadmi Party wants to remind Prime Minister Narendra Modi that his party in its manifesto had promised, “Our immediate task will be to rein in inflation.” The Aam Aadmi Party wants to ask the government what immediate steps it has taken so far to tackle price rise and food inflation. The BJP manifesto had also said that a group of Chief Ministers headed by the then Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi had given a report to the centre in March 2011 detailing what steps could be taken to contain inflation, but the report was not acted upon by the UPA government. This report is now gathering dust in Mr. Modi’s office. If he thinks that his recommendations had some substance, it’s time for him to implement the same.

A simple observation of the retail and wholesale market shows that there is no serious supply constraint in case of onions. It’s only price manipulation by the middlemen which is causing steep rise in onion prices. Instead of importing onions to ease supply, dealing with hoarders with an iron hand would have yielded results and also would have saved precious foreign currency. But for that the government will have to crack the whip on hoarders and go beyond issuing customary advisories to state governments.

Farmer’s GENUINE Agenda – India Shreshtra in 60 Days
July02, 2014
PM please not India shall never be SHRESHTRA in million years when its
Farmers are not paid for their produce that earns them net income at
par with Urban Indians.
It is Unfortunate That my Friends Ajay Vir Jakhar and MJ Khan had let
down Indian Farmers in presenting Weak Lame Duck demands.
Shreshtra Countries pay highest wages to difficult and risky jobs. An
Offshore Drilling Rig Operator earns Three Times More than a Software
Engineer, Plumber three times than a Bank Manger. Farmers in
Switzerland are paid $100,000 annual subsidy so that they earn more
than Urban Swiss Nationals.
Inventors and Engineers earn thrice much more than accountants and
moneylenders and traders. India must REVERSE MALPRACTICES in our
economy.
ONION – CAULIFLOWER LESSONS
Farmers are paid just Rs.5 to Rs.8 per kg for Onion that retails for
Rs.25 to Rs.100 per kg, middlemen cum moneylenders in the ILLEGAL
OPERATIONS earn hundreds of crores in a single day but neither Provide
Safe & Hygienic Storage of Foods nor Provide Insurance to Farmers for
Crop Loss not Let Farmers Harvest Fully Mature Crops.
250gm of Cauliflower or 20 gm Onions are not Unhealthy Crop but mostly
Crops are harvested PRE-MATURELY. A Cauliflower a couple of more days
in field would grow to 1200 gm to even 2 kg. Onions maturing to full
size would be 200 gm.
Traders and Moneylenders compel them to Harvest Premature Crops –
Farmers are at their mercy would not get even Rs.2 per kg for
Cauliflower or Onion for high production would not earn a penny for
their hard work.
India can’t be Shreshtra, Healthy Wealthy & Educated when
    It can’t Produce Enough Food for its People,
    It can’t Store, Deliver Foods Safely, Hygienically that Retain Nutrition.
    It Provides Foods at Affordable Prices.
    Localize Production of Food wherever Possible.
Progress of 800m Indian Is Directly Related to Profitable Agriculture.
GOI Need Not Provide Any Subsidized Foods, Toilets, Home Loans, Jobs
etc. Wealth of 95% Indians and GDP Growth Shall Double.
1.  Farmers to Store, Process and Direct Market Foods to Consumers.
2.  Consumers shall get Cake for the Price of Bread
3.  Processed or Clean, Dressed Up, Nutritious Fruits & Vegetables
4.  Cut LPG use by Half, Reduce Garbage by 70%
5.  Promote FARMERS owned Commodity Boards for Major Crops to Ensure
Stable Prices, Adequate Hygienic Production & Storage of Crops Locally
Produced to Be Delivered Farm Fresh.
GOI has PUBLIC MANDATE to implement REAL REFORM in Indian Economy.
This shall create 10 crore jobs shortly.
India Has Over Rs.80,00,000 Crores Bank Deposits, Rs.100,00,000 Crores
Gold and other Properties.
India Needs PROGRESSIVE ECONOMIC POLICIES, promotion of Inventors to
SERVE WORLD MARKET, Manufacturers, and Farmers than Middlemen and
Commission Agents.

Food prices in India – Uncertainty rules the roost
Jun 19, 2014,
By Ajay Vir Jakhar
Everyone is worried about food inflation, which is now near
double-digit levels. But farmers are worried about farm gate price
deflation. Several ministries are talking to each other on ways to
tame food prices. But it’s a tall order, because at the farm, most
food prices are already very low and the threat of a weak monsoon
looms large this year.
The farmer is worried that gram, or chana, is selling today at same
price as it was in 2006. Mustard and barley prices are the same as in
2008. These are non-perishables, under the government-administered
minimum support price umbrella.
Consider perishables like vegetables: last year bitter gourd or
karela, was sold by farmers at Rs 15 per kg. Today, farmers sell it at
Rs 4 per kg. The same karela is being sold in Nizamuddin, a locality
in New Delhi, for Rs 20 per kg. Sponge gourd, or tori, sold on the
farm for Rs 20 per kg last year; today farmers sell it for Rs 6 per kg
and consumers pay Rs 30 for it. So, just for selling the same thing
from a city pavement after an overnight tempo ride, the seller makes a
margin of 500%.
It gets worse. Last year, farmers sold green pepper at Rs 12 per kg,
but today he is compelled to do a distress sale at Rs 2, where the
cost of picking the peppers is also Rs 2. Add to that the cost of
transport and other commissions. The irony is that even though the
green pepper price has fallen by 600% in one year on the farm, the
street price remains the same: Rs 60 per kg.
Tomato processing is the much-trumpeted success story of the food
processing sector. Last year, farmers sold tomatoes for Rs 10 per kg,
but now, for only Rs 2 per kg. Punjab farmers are offering to give
their tomato crop for free, if prospective buyers pay for harvesting,
loading and transportation. The same free tomatoes are being bought by
consumers at Rs 15 per kg in the market, a 750% margin.
The rate of growth of the food processing sector has slowed over the
last 30 years. A few years ago the finance minister did not even find
it worthwhile to mention the sector in his Budget speech. Permanent
food imports cannot solve food inflation. There are other more
credible policy options at hand.
Who could better hide these windfall margins than the middlemen of
mandis like Azadpur, in Delhi and Navi Mumbai, street vendors and
shopkeepers? If left unchecked by the BJP, these very profiteers will
shatter the dream of millions, who elected a new government to tame
persistent inflation. Some harsh decisions need be adopted, including
a law to limit the maximum commission chargeable for a sale of
agriculture produce at 2%, instead of today’s exorbitant 7%.
Agriculture is a state subject and most changes have to take place at
the state level, but certain things in Delhi can help. The government
will invest in urban infrastructure through the JNNURM, or whatever it
chooses to rename the project as. When it invests in cities, it must
ensure space for 25,000 farmer markets in the 4,000 census towns
across India.
We do not oppose middlemen; all we ask is for is enforcing regulations
and disbanding trade monopolies. Supply-side constraints can be
resolved and price volatility of fruits and vegetables can be stemmed
with political will and some decisive action.
More For Every Acre
We must increase the yield per acre of each crop. Diversification is
not enough: it increases production by transferring area under crops
like wheat and rice to other crops. Something else is needed.
India has one of the lowest yields in farming among other nations.
Yields have to go up dramatically. Farm profitability will follow.
Farming has to be a remunerative profession. Otherwise farmers will
use their land for other purposes and India’s overall farm output will
decline. That would be a disaster.
To avoid that, the government has to ensure reasonably priced
perishables for consumers as well as a decent price at the farm gate.
And yields have to increase from the existing area to offset the
increasing cost of inputs. Input costs have increased rapidly, far
ahead of productivity gains for many years now.
Create Farm Jobs
There are no short cuts: the finance minister can push us on to that
path by boosting investment in farm research and development (R&D) to
around 2% of GDP, the developed world average.
India should triple the spend on activities like horticulture,
fisheries, poultry and livestock rearing, not by extra allotment of
funds, but by smarter reallocation of existing financial resources.
One complaint against the UPA II was the lack of job creation: well,
horticulture generates five times more jobs than any other sector with
the same investment. The government consults some farm experts for
advice. Instead, it should now talk to organisations that directly
represent farmers.

Jobs in Renewable Energy Expand in Turbulent Process

Jobs in Renewable Energy Expand in Turbulent Process

New analysis examines global trends in employment in the renewable energy sector

Washington, D.C.—-There may now be as many as 6.5 million direct and indirect jobs in renewable energy, according to updated data from the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA). Earlier assessments had put the global estimate at 2.3 million jobs in 2008 (United Nations Environment Programme) and at 5 million jobs in 2012 (International Labour Organization). Although these estimates suggest a strong expansion in employment in renewable energy, the figures also represent successive efforts to broaden data collection across countries and sectors, write Worldwatch Senior Researcher Michael Renner and IRENA’s Rabia Ferroukhi, Arslan Khalid, and Alvaro Lopez-Peña in the Worldwatch Institute’s latest Vital Signs Online trend (www.worldwatch.org).
The overall upward trend in renewable energy jobs has been accompanied by considerable turmoil in some industries. Nowhere are the upheavals more noticeable than in the solar photovoltaic (PV) sector, where intensified competition, massive overcapacities, and tumbling prices have caused a high degree of turbulence in the last two to three years, but they have also triggered a boom in installations. Global PV employment is thought to have expanded from 1.4 million jobs in 2012 to as many as 2.3 million in 2013.
Solar PV has bypassed biofuels (ethanol and biodiesel) as the top renewable energy job generator. Most of the 1.45 million biofuels jobs are found in the growing and harvesting of feedstock such as sugar cane, corn, or palm oil. This involves physically demanding manual work, and workers often contend with oppressive workplace conditions. Processing of the feedstock into fuels offers far fewer jobs, but the ones created are higher skilled and they pay better.
Employment in the next-largest renewables sector, wind power, is estimated to run to some 834,000 jobs. Uncertainty about the future direction of policies in several countries weakened job creation in this field in 2013, leading to a sharp drop in new installations in the United States and to weak markets in large parts of Europe and in India. In contrast, developments in China and Canada were more positive.
Countries that are home to half of the world’s population-China, members of the European Union, Brazil, the United States, and India-account for the bulk of renewable energy employment: 5.8 million direct and indirect (supply chain) jobs out of 6.5 million worldwide.
Better information is necessary for a range of countries to generate a more complete and accurate renewable energy employment picture. Attention is also needed on the question of whether development of renewable energy leads to job loss elsewhere, including in the conventional energy industries.
All in all, available information suggests that renewable energy has grown to become a significant source of jobs. Rising labor productivity notwithstanding, the job numbers are likely to grow in coming decades as the world’s energy system shifts toward low-carbon sources.

Country Highlights from the Report:
  • China is the largest employer in the renewable energy sector. The latest estimates by the country’s National Renewable Energy Center suggest almost 1.6 million jobs in the solar PV industry in 2013. Other major sources of renewables employment provide close to 1 million jobs.
  • European Union member states had more than 1.2 million renewable energy jobs in 2012. Even though Germany suffered some job losses in 2013, the country remains the dominant renewable energy employer in Europe, with about 371,000 jobs. Spain’s renewables sector has been hit hard by economic crisis and a series of adverse government policy changes. The country suffered a net loss of 23,700 jobs between 2008 and 2012, or 17 percent.
  • In Brazil, renewable energy is largely synonymous with sugarcane-based ethanol. A factor of rising importance is the growing mechanization of sugarcane harvesting, which has brought the number of direct jobs down from 460,000 in 2006 to 331,000 in 2012, even as ethanol processing jobs increased.
  • In the United States, the number of wind and ethanol jobs has fluctuated, but solar employment has been rising fast. In the wind sector, the stop-and-go nature of the U.S. Production Tax Credit has affected employment, with the 92 percent drop in new wind installations during 2013 resulting in a decline from 80,700 jobs in 2012 to 50,500 jobs in 2013. U.S. ethanol employment fell in 2012 because of rising feedstock prices, reduced yields due to drought, and lower demand, although conditions improved and employment stabilized in 2013. Solar employment was close to 143,000 jobs in 2013, a gain of 20 percent.
  • In most other countries, the number of renewable energy jobs is still limited, and often there is simply no reliable information at all.


 

THE MEGA Rs 23,000 crore 4G SCAM BY the GOVERNMENT AND RELIANCE 

2072014
After the 2G spectrum allocation scam during the former UPA government, another major telecom scandal in the allocation of 4G spectrum (Broadband and Wireless Access – BWA) ) has now been exposed in its latest report submitted by the Comptroller & Auditor General (CAG) to the central government. 
 
According to the information available so far, this scam has caused a loss of around Rs 23,000 crore to the public exchequer in the initial estimates and this amount will definitely go up in case a thorough and impartial probe is ordered by the Narendra Modi government.
 
The Aam Aadmi Party demands that the BJP-led NDA’s central  government should  immediately cancel the telecom license and allotment of 4G spectrum given to Reliance Industries and also order a CBI probe for a through criminal investigation into this scam involving
Reliance Industries and the UPA government.
 
If the NDA government delays tabling of the CAG report on the 4G spectrum & BWA allocation scam and does not cancel its allotment, it will become clear that this government also is favouring corporates and allowing them to loot national resources. 
The details of this scam are as follows :   
 
The UPA government in March 2013 allowed a back-door entry of Reliance Jio Infocomm into voice telephony in violation of the judgment of the Supreme Court in the 2G case. This was done at the price discovered in 2001 of Rs 1,658 crore for a pan-India licence, which is the same price that was struck down by the Supreme Court in its 2G judgment, because that had caused a huge loss to the public exchequer.
During May-June 2010 the auctions for 3G and 4G were concluded. The 3G auction fetched Rs 16,750.58 crore for 5+5 MHz spectrum in 2100 MHz (or 2.1 GHz) band. Thus, per MHz, the price worked out to be Rs 1,675 crore. Immediately, after the 3G auction, the 4G auction began which fetched Rs 12,847.77 crore for 20 MHz pan-India license in the 2300 MHz (or 2.3 GHz) band. This works out to be Rs 642.39 crore per MHz.
This was so because all documents stated that 4G spectrum was for data services only, whereas 3G spectrum can be used for both data and voice telephony. (All relevant documents – including the CAG report, Reliance Jio Infocomm reply and Department of Telecom response are attached with this press release).
Infotel Broadband Services Pvt Ltd (IBSPL) emerged as the only company to have acquired pan-India 4G spectrum. IBSPL had an internet license since November 2007 and had just one subscriber with revenue of Rs 16.28 lakhs during 2009-10, and its authorized share capital was Rs three crore and the paid up capital was Rs 2.51 crore. Infotel Digicomm Pvt Ltd (IDPL) held 99.99% share of the IBSPL at the time of submission of application in March 2010.
Within hours of completion of 4G auction on 11.06.2010, IBSPL increased the authorised share capital from Rs three crore to Rs 6,000 crore. On 17.06.2010, the company authorized its Board of Directors to allot Rs 475 crore equity share of Rs 10 each to Reliance Industries Ltd (RIL) and 25 crore equity share of Rs 10 to Infotech Digicomm Pvt Ltd (IDPL) aggregating to the equity capital of Rs 5,000 crore. On the same day, the company also decided to change from a private company to Public Limited Company (Infotel Broadband Services Ltd). Thus, the
company within a week of winning the 4G spectrum disposed off 95% shares to RIL while 5% was retained by IDPL. Much later in March 2013, the company was renamed as Reliance Jio Infocomm Pvt Ltd.
CAG has found that the Government did not protect its interest at the time of framing eligibility criteria for the 4G auction. It allowed participation of internet (ISP) licensees without ensuring adequate safeguards in terms of net-worth of the companies participating in the auction. It found that while a UAS licensee or even a new company without a license was allowed to participate in the 4G auction, but
they had to pass through the test of net-worth in order to become eligible, but no such criteria was specified for the existing internet (ISP) licensees participating in 4G auction. CAG observed that this criterion was important even for ISP-A licensees as they had to participate in the bidding where the reserve price was fixed at Rs 1,750 crore per pan-India license for 20 MHz spectrum in 2.3 GHz band.
The only company which won the pan-India 4G license, was an ISP-A licensee, Infotel Broadband Services Pvt Ltd (IBSPL), a HFCL promoted group company. CAG has stated that IBSPL was given the ISP-A license in November 2007, and it had just one leased-line subscribers as on December 2009 and total revenue of just Rs 16.28 lakh for FY 2009-10. The paid-up capital was just Rs 2.51 crore and 99.99 per cent of it was held by Infotel Digicom Pvt Ltd at the time of submission of application for the 4G auction in March 2010. Thus, this company could not be termed as a serious player. And there were no checks in-built
in the auction process to eliminate such non-serious players, CAG has observed.
After the company was taken over Reliance Industries, the government allowed it to provide voice telephony (which was earlier prohibited) without conducting a fresh auction. This was done at the rate of Rs 1,658 crore which was fixed in 2001, and had been struck down by the Supreme Court in the 2G case for causing huge loss to public exchequer. The CAG has now concluded that besides vitiating the
auction process, an undue advantage of Rs 22,842 crore was given to RIL at the cost of exchequer. The relevant part of the CAG’s report is reproduced below: -
It was found that the basis of the decision i.e. payment of entry fee of Rs 1,658 crore by ISP licensee for a permission to Pan India
provision of mobile voice services using BWA spectrum considered by the DoT Committee, Telecom Commission and the MOC&IT, was primarily intended to fill the gap between the eligibility criterion stipulated for participation in the 3G / BWA auction in 2010 as UAS / CMTS licensees had paid entry fee of Rs 1,658 crore while ISP licensees had paid only Rs 30 lakh.
The DoT Committee, Telecom Commission and the Ministry of communication &IT  however ignored the fact that the quantum of entry fee i.e. Rs 1,658 crore was basically discovered in 2001 through the bidding for the 4th Cellular licenses. Market conditions since then have changed drastically, and this price needed to be modified to reflect the present value. 
 
Neither the DoT Committee / TC under the Chairmanship of the Secretary DoT nor the ministry felt the need for revision of the price discovered in 2001 as the entry fee for UASL in 2013, even when the Hon’ble Supreme Court of India had cancelled 122 licenses granted in 2008 on the basis of the same entry fee stating that it was impossible for them to approve the action of the DoT.
Therefore, by permitting ISPs to provide mobile voice service using BWA spectrum won in 2010 auction post-auction, the government has brought ISP licensees with BWA spectrum at par with UAS / CMTS 3G spectrum winners so far as provision of services are concerned –
Voice, Data, etc., and post auction interpretation of such vital nature would appear to be arbitrary, inconsistent and not appropriate.
Hence, IBSPL, now Reliance JioInfocomm, appeared to have been accorded undue advantage of Rs 22,842 crore i.e. the difference of the
proportionate prices for 20 MHz block size in 2.1 GHz spectrum band (3G spectrum) and 2.3 GHz spectrum band (BWA spectrum) plus the Net Present Value of the entry fee for UASL at the end of FY 2009-10 (Rs 20,653 crore plus Rs 3,847 crore – Rs 1,658 crore). Besides, the sanctity of the entire auction process has been rendered vitiated due to post auction interpretations and interventions after three years.
It was therefore no surprise that Reliance JioInfocomm was among the first group of companies which applied for UL immediately after introduction of the scheme and obtained the Letter of Intent (LoI).
Had the spectrum blocks been specified and declared as liberalised spectrum blocks i.e. open for all technology / services in the NIA in
February 2010, there was no doubt that bidders would have taken informed decision for putting up their bid and the market discovered
price would have been significantly different for 3G and BWA spectrum.
AAP leader and senior lawyer Prashant Bhushan has filed a PIL in the Supreme Court seeking cancellation of Reliance Industries’ telecom license and a through criminal investigation. Supreme Court had issued notice to the government and Reliance on that petition on 9th May 2014.
