ndian history has it that the first time a group of social-workers (or so they call themselves as) formed a political party, and within a year of its establishment, the party formed a government by contesting elections. However, it is unfair to not give due credit to the historic achievements of the Aam Aadmi Party, formed by now-so-popular politician Arvind Kejriwal, who seemed too firm on his ideologies to be distracted until the results of the recently concluded Delhi assembly elections came out. The success of Arvind Kejriwal and his party is a result of constant efforts. Picking up some eye-cathing points such as Jan-Lokpal and RTI, along with countless number of other issues, at important times, and then placing the issues before the public in a good manner, aided Kejriwal in winning the trust of people. Consequently, he has been crowned as the chief minister of Delhi. Still, the task of Kejriwal or his Aam Aadmi Party has not finished. Instead, being Delhi’s CM has tightened the ropes on him. The numerous promises that he made, prior to the elections, about providing an all out face-lift to the lives of common people, are yet to be fulfilled. These promises like cutting the cost of electricity and providing 700 litres of free water every day seem to be far from being realistic, and indicate that AAP had the least thought of forming the government. Now, as Kejriwal has become Delhi’s CM (whatever had been the turn of events), he has been placed in a situation that he may get his name written in golden letters on the pages of Indian history, or the public will have to bear the consequences. It will be interesting to see the moves of Kejriwal, who has already stunned the public on many times with his smart moves. The public, here, has plenty to loose, while Kejriwal and his AAP has plenty to gain, depending on the actions taken to fulfill the pre-election promises of the party formed by people who call themselves as social-workers. Public expects a lot from Kejriwal and AAP. It can be noted from the history that public has been made to pay for trusting new people and handing them the reins to drive the country. This is not expected of AAP or Kejriwal, even if their politics is being tagged as opportunistic politics and a politics of comfort. Politics is also a matter of dedication and sacrifices, something that Arvind Kejriwal may need to learn, sooner or later.

Swaraj the new way of politics locality. Though it deems to infringe on Central Government's control over law and order of the national capital, but in reality it is an step towards collective responsibility and collective sharing. The key features of the finalised draft of the Delhi Nagar Swaraj Act 2014 are as follows...

I

t is the irony of our country that, we the people of India now struggling of those basic rights which were used to be the major causes of India's independence. Swaraj was the dream of Mhatma Gandhi, mission of B. G. Tilak and spirit of every Indian during the freedom struggle which ended 65 years ago. But, why the historic speech of Pandit Jawahar Lal Nehru 'Tryst With Destiny' which used to enthuse a common man that time sounds unrealistic today to majority of deprived, underprivileged and hapless citizens. The paradox is bitterly appalling; the largest democracy of the world is among those five unfortunate democracies which do not have constitutional provisions of the direct participation of people in the policy making. The unprecedented move of the Aam Admi Party ( AAP) in the initiaton of Swaraj Bill reminds the golden stand in the Indian Constitution which happened 40 years ago. Yes, The Panchayati Raj Bill that is milestone decision to empowers to local self government in our constitution. AAP's Swaraj Bill is seemed to be another ray of hope in this regime, something we all have been desperately waiting for the last four decades. The purpose and objective of Swaraj Bill which is drafted by AAP is to create a transparent political system where politicians will be accountable for each and every actions not only before the law but, in fact before the common man who elected them. Following the footmarks of The Father of Nation, AAP'S vision is to translate the dream of SWARAJ that Gandhiji had envisaged in our real practices. People are not seeking or expecting hypothetical democratic sovereignty, they

want to feel and see an established democracy where the power of governance and rights will be in the hands of the people of India and they shall no longer we restricted in the hands of few influencial groups like political parties, bureaucrats and corporate honchos. In a recent development in Delhi, the AAP Government seems determined to decentralise the power through the formation of the Swaraj Bill. In January, 2014 the Delhi government has finalised the draft of Swaraj Bill, a legislation aimed to the decentralisation of power which was promised by the Aam Aadmi Party in its election manifesto. The highly exclusive feature of Swaraj Bill is the formation of Mohalla Sabhas. These Mohalla Sabhas will be entrusted with many unique powers and the prominent among them is the 'power to recall councillors'. These Mohalla Sabhas will also be able to recommend police action against miscreant in the particular

1. After the final enactment of Swaraj Act, each ward shall be divided in minimum eight and maximum 12 mohallas. 2. Each Mohalla Sabha will have one Mohalla committee consisting of one woman and one man. Transgender will be equally treated and it is up to their wish to project themselves as either male or female. 3. At least one meeting in a month is required by each Mohalla Sabha. 4. The tenure of Mohalla Sabha will be five year, that is equal to Municipal Corporation. 5. All of the Mohalla Sabha meeting will be video recorded. 6. And these recorded meetings of the Mohalla Sabha will be telecasted on local cable networks and aired on radio stations. 7. All of the representatives of Mohalla Sabha shall be liable to abide by the rules of Mohalla Sabha. 8. Mohalla Sabha will have the discretionary power to recall the councillor. In this regard ten percent or above of the total registered voters

JANTA CONNECT should have a consent for the recommendation and 2/3rd of the total voters should be unanimous to approve the recall, that is the removal. 9. In case of removal, it is the duty of State Elections Commission to conduct fresh election within a month for the selection of a new councillor. What the society will expect from these Mohalla Sabhas ? AAP envisioned some core functions as well as duties of the Mohalla Sabhas. The prime focus shall be on the education for all in their respective Mohallas, the next objective or concern will be the health care facilities in the Mohalla Sabha. Appropriate arrangement of food and eradication of hunger is of course a major and indispensable objective behind the formation of Mohalla Sabha. Among the other major duties and challehges of Mohalla Sabha is the arrangement of shelter for the homeless, protection and welfare of the senior citizens, physically challenged people and other vulnerable sections of the society.

Powerful Tools of Mohalla Sabha: 1. Shall have powers to get any information from any state government official or municipal body. 2. The shall be able to hire a consultant if required. 3. Authorise to allocate and distribute resources and incur expenditure. 4. Shall be entitled to impose penalties or impart rewards to govt officials working directly under the Mohalla Sabha. 5. Right of direct confrontation with the Delhi Development Authority, no conversion of any land shall be allowed without consultation of affected Mohalla Sabha. 6. Mohalla Sabha will have power to stop the operation of liquor shop opened without the approval of Mohalla Sabha. 7. Closure of existing liquor shops if people found unwholesome environment there. 8.

Taxes for Common Man Responsibility or a Burden Direct tax collections Rs 4.29 lakh crore period in 2012-13 I

ncome tax is the tax levied by the government on the aggregate income of an individual or company at the end of a fiscal year at the rate determined by the government. There are different income tax slab that are divided between different income sections like upper class and middle class. The revenue collected by the government through the income tax is the biggest source of funding for a country. It is through the funding of income tax revenue that the government carries out its various public welfare activities and other duties. The Indian government impose tax on all the taxable income for HUF’s (Hindu Undivided Families), individual personals, associations, corporate, firms, companies etc. The tax levied by the government is different for every category. This is stated under the Indian Income Tax Act, 1961. In India, middle class or the working class is the main contributor of the income tax revenue to the government. The main brunt of the income tax is always carried out by the middle class or the working class. They are bent by the large slab of the income tax that is weighed down by numerous day to day taxes that are paid by them apart from the fixed taxes on the taxable income. Ten to sixty percent of the income is put to the national treasury in the form of one tax or the other. A middle class salaried person pays thirty to fifty percent of his or her salary in taxes annually on an average. In the beginning of every fiscal year, working class is hopeful that the budget will bring something new and hopeful for them. They expect the government to reduce the tax slab. In the recent couple 06

of years, the middle class is more hopeful as it is facing a very high rate of inflation as well. Higher taxes and high inflation are the sore woes of an average working middle class Indian. Inflation has taken on a new dimension in the past year. Common house hold commodities have soared so high that it has become increasingly difficult for the average Indian to meets the basic living requirements. Everything from electricity to onions is expensive. Government is adding taxes every day. Indian democracy

is very disappointed in the ruling government and is expectantly waiting for the elections. The middle class especially is hopeful that the new government will bring about changes that will grant them relief from the huge tax slab and eventually the extra ordinary inflation that never ceases to strike terror in the heart of a honest working class. It is becoming increasingly difficult to eat a proper meal with increased rates of edibles as well. The government is taking undue advantage of the citizens in the name of modernization and development. In the

last budgetary speech, it was revealed by the finance minister that only about forty three thousand people in India have declared income of over one crore annually that is taxable. India is a economy that has the tax payers base f around four crore individuals and only 400, 00 individuals pays income tax on income exceeding twenty lakh. This constitutes only sixty three percent of total tax payers base that consists of around four crore. it is seen that brunt of paying tax is settled on the middle class salaried persons as they cannot evade tax, as it is cut directly from their salaries or in the form of TDS. While the people who pay minimum of tax are encouraged to file tax returns. Thus, it is seen that it is the middleclass only that is in dire need of freedom from this ever tangling net of tax that is becoming a hindrance in their financial development as well as saving initiatives. They are left with nothing to save. After settling the taxes and fighting inflation, a middle class salaried person is left with empty pockets. It is the responsibility of the government to give relief to the major class that is the main contributor to the tax revenue. The tax slab for the middle class should be reduced so that an average person can think ahead of taxes and plan the future saving for the children’s education, housing finance or other personal plans. The only hope of middle class is now on the governmental change that may occur in the upcoming elections. One of the main contenders for the post of India’s Prime Minister, BJP’s Mr. Modi, recently spoke about the financial

He said that this reform will be targeted specially towards the working class or middle class, as they are the main victims of the system. He said that reform is direly required at this point of time and he will make sure that this reform is brought about when he comes into power. Not only this, BJP’s main contender for the Prime Minister’s post even gave hints of totally abolishing income tax. He stated that if he comes into power, he will change the present system as what good it would be if he can’t change the existing system. Well, it is music to the Indian population that is thirsting for the change. In its two term governance, the ruling government has managed to bring tears to the middle and lower class who is struggling to make end meets in the face of such high inflation. This vision statement made by the Prime Minister’s post candidate has made an average person hopeful. But it should not be forgotten that to turn the events around and win the post, radical promises and propositions have to be given to the voters to gain their confidence. But, will this proposal, also lighten the burden of inflation too. This has to be seen. According to the fiscal policy, increase in the tax is the direct way of reducing the inflation as there is not much disposable

household cash left with the consumers after paying the taxes. So, if an average salaried middle class person is hopeful of getting relief from taxes, can he or she also be sure that inflation will decrease. After a considerable break, as promised by Mr.Modi, if he comes to power, middle class will be left with more disposable income. Its spending power will increase and it will in turn increase the demand. Increased demand paves the way for increased production. Thus a chain is created that will increase the rates of commodities and inflation is likely to go up. The reduction of the tax slab may not very strongly affect the inflation that is the main concern of the middle class Indians at present. Although inflation is another matter that government has to tackle in other ways, the question is that should government reduce the tax slab for the middle class or not. The answer is very simple. Yes. As it is the middle class India that is the largest tax paying base, it deserves a tax break. The rich or upper class does not have to contend with taxes levied on salaries, as their main income is not from salaries but from other sources of savings, dividends and bonds. Reducing the tax slab will provide the much sought after relief and middle class persons can think about personal savings. It will also increase their spending power as they will have increased disposable

Royalty tax Increased from 10% to 25%

Cigarette and Tobacco Increased Excise Duty by 18%

Sports Utility Vechicles Excise Duty Increased from 27% to 30% income. This will directly affect the Indian economy as increase in demand will increase the production as well. At this crucial time bracket of impending elections, the hopeful candidates for forming the new government of India have a very powerful tool at their disposal. An average Indian is patiently waiting for radical changes as the back breaking inflation and huge tax slab has bewildered them. By reducing the tax slab for the middle class, the government will lighten some of the burden. At least, a salaried person will have enough disposable income at hand to meet the inflation. Higher taxes and still higher inflation is the sure shot recipe for dissatisfaction among the masses. The common man deserves a tax break. More than half of what they earn is consumed by different tax that they are liable to pay, where as the rich or upper class do not have to pay as much tax as their salaries are comparably lower than the middle and lower middle class salaried persons. Most of their income is sourced from alternative means that provides them tax relief. But the money earned by middle class is the white money that cannot be camouflaged in any form and tax is paid honestly. Thus, it is the duty of the government to provide amendments in the tax system that will make the common Indian realize that government really cars for them.

Schools to Refund Extra Fees- Delhi Govt.

The committee found that in around 100 schools, either no records were maintained or the accounts were fudged. It counseled strict action against these schools.

Till now, the committee has counseled that 242 faculties ought to come back excess fees they need collected from the parents with 9% interest from 2008 to 2011. The committee found that in around 100 schools, either no records were maintained or the accounts were fudged. It counseled strict action against these schools. Advocate Ashok Aggarwal, who filed the PIL against fee hikes, said: "Now 242 faculties need to come back excess fees and as per recommendation, action are taken around one hundred faculties found not maintaining correct accounts." Many of the faculties within the town were in operation while not even a checking account and year once year they were granted recognition, the committee report has aforementioned. Several of the faculties haven't been maintaining correct accounts and weren't obtaining their accounts audited as needed by the law, and were additionally not filing annual returns, the report aforementioned. After the implementation of the Sixth Pay Commission, the schools raised the fees, citing further monetary burden thanks to raised salaries of academics. In August 2011, the court gave directions for fitting a three-member committee to audit the accounts of every of the faculties to determine if the fee hike by them was needed. This order came on a petition filed by nongovernmental organization Social Jurists, through advocate Agarwal, which alleged that schools had hiked the fees "unreasonably" however they did not pay the salaries of the teaching and nonteaching workers as per the pay panel recommendations.

UGC: Not a proper Supreme Court Issued a notice to UGC

S

upreme Court has asked University grants commission (UGC) to inspect about the 44 deemed universities which are derecognized. To the surprise, UGC itself has prepared a report regarding this issue but has not gone through the reports prepared by Prof Tandon. The time duration given by the SC to UGC is just two months to acknowledge all the matters regarding this and give a valid documentary for the respective. This inspection is just for the sake of legal aspects of the respective deemed universities as confirmed by the justice K.S. Radhakrishanan and Vikramjit Sen. If the legal boundation are crossed to a greater extent by any of the institution, then it may result a bad result for the default institution as they may lose the status of deemed university status by the central government. Punjab and Haryana court had issued apprehension to UGC and Haryana government regarding the retirement age of the teachers in government colleges (58 years) and private colleges (60 years). Similar notice was issued by SC to UGC and Bihar state government with respect to the petition filed by the faculty of Dr. B R Ambedkar Bihar University to escalate the age of superannuation from 62 to 65 years. It has become the obligation of Supreme Court and High Court to indulge them in the matter of UGC to sort out the issues which are generated by UGC itself.

Inception of UGC: The University Grants Commission (UGC) of India may be a statutory organization created by the Union government in 1956, charged with management, determination and safeguarding standards of university education. It provides affirmation to universities in India, and disburses funds to such perceived universities and faculties.

Universities as Disasters

Chandra Mohan Jha (CMJ) University was entrenched in Meghalaya in year 2009 as a private University and started functioning from 17 October 2010. Shri C M Jha is themselves-

controller regarding 44 deemed Universities appointed chancellor of the University. The university flares in the headlines for awarding 434 Ph. D degrees in one educational year. The case against University was filed in High court. A writ petition was filed for the re appointment of new chancellor. Meghalaya high court ousted the writ petition of CMJ against the proposal of appointment of new chancellor. The university has been prominent for selling the degrees even. In September Supreme Court sent away the petition of the chancellor and forwarded the order of governor to dissolve the university in three months. It is not the lone case. Another case is of EIILM University. EIILM

University is established under the Sikkim state legislature act no. 4, 2006. It is the first university to be awarded with the prestigious ISO 9001:14001 certification by UKAS. After receiving this award even what the university did? It started running it’s off campus study centers, Distance learning centers, in technical and various other courses tampering with the notification issued by UGC on 27 July 2013 that no private university can run it’s off campus center. Neither Universities nor UGC suffer has to deteriorate in any case but the victims are the students. With so many dreams and a characterized aim, a student takes admission in a university so that after getting a certificate he/she will get a prudent job. But what if the student has taken admission in a university like CMJ, or EIILM, GLOBAL University? At the end either their university course will get stuck in between or their certificates will

be proved invalid. After dissipating three to four years, handful amount of money, life & career, what they get- nothing. This happens because the concerned authorities (UGC/ AICTE/ MHRD) do not take the responsibility of the universities earnestly. There is no action taken on the complaint against the university and their working procedure? May be this is the only reason because if the stride would have taken on the very first day then the situation would not have levitated. The case of CMJ, EIILM and GLOBAL University degree violation is not the matter of one day only, it had started years back but the authorities took months to grasp that something is erroneous. During these years, so many RTI’s are filed by students and parents to discern about the admission procedure related to the courses (VALID OR NOT), but UGC hardly answered and transferred it to DEB (Distance Education Bureau). Even if we will visit the website of UGC to find out the facts about the Universities, hardly we will find outright information about any university. Only the Name of the Website of the university is present over there. If any student or their parents appetite any information you have to explore on your own. If the expert statutory authority cannot update its own website what else can we expect. In spite of the fact UGC is always found saying that each information is provided on our official website.

World may Perceive Many students visit abroad in quest of jobs and there they enact our culture and also our educational system. Suppose they are the students of CMJ university and their degrees are proved as uncertified. What other countries will perceive about Indian educational system. How they will certitude on genuine things later. It is not only about CMJ or EIILM but many other Universities are also pursuing this pattern. Bountiful many Private

universities are running part time mode with the name CIB, IBL, IIBL, etc. UGC always issue different notification but do not try to find out whether Universities are following the regulation it or not. UGC issued a notice on June 2013 that no private university can sprint off campus study center and examination center. Is this the proper way of UGC to issue a notification and not to take action in order to constrain the activities of Universities? Will the universities stop awarding the power to the information study centers? If the off campus or study centers will be banned than what will happen to the future of thousands of students and where the level of literacy go, because educational study centers have played a vital role in enhancing India literacy level. They help in overcoming the financial resistance of the students. Many private Universities are running their off campus study centers. UGC is having information about it but currently they will not look into the matter but will wait for the circumstances to become worse. These kinds of university degrees (CIB, IBL) allotted to students are not accepted to be valid and when the student’s complaints regarding the same, they themselves get the expostulation for not verifying about the university before taking admission. But no one notify them from where they can take the factual information. FOR EXAMPLE: It is same that a fake doctor without degree is sitting in a big clinic and giving prescriptions to the patients, when the patients are not benefitted and complain, they are only blamed for not verifying about the doctor. Is this the power of the patient to ask for the MBBS degree of the doctor or the liabilities of the Government? A student name Rajan Prasad (changed name) was waiting outside UGC to probe about a university which is situated in Rajasthan. He gave the information that The University is “Established by Rajasthan State Government Legislature by the Act No. 29 of 2013” (as per the website) and has not got the affiliation to be a university but it has started its functioning as a university. When he inquired, they replied that they will get the affiliation for the university after 6 months. Rajan Prasad has informed University Grants Commission (UGC) about that university through an RTI. And when he

FUTURE CONNECT didn’t have the echo for the RTI, he came here to know. Prasad find the reply that UGC is not responsible to give any kind of information about regular of Distance course, the question emanates over here is that if the University will not get affiliated after 6 months than what will happen to the future of the students? If the request is revoked then who will take the responsibility of these students life? Working of an authority like UGC should not be like this. How can a educational institute commence operation as a University without approval? The fact is that UGC is already mindful with this but is sitting mutely and waiting disasters to happen.

Acumen behind the incapability of the UGC Prof. Ved Prakash is the present chairman of University Grants Commission. He is acclaimed academician and author of a number of books and he has also worked as the vice chancellor of National University of Education Planning and Administration (NUEPA) from 2005 to 2009. He is also a visiting faculty at University at university Windsor and Harvard institute of international development (HIID) in United States. He was also the head of NCERT. He ratified Shivaji University center for Distance education. Instead of all these achievements there were many questions raised on the selection of Prof. Ved Prakash as the chairman of UGC. In year 2012 Society for values and ethics in education had filed a writ appeal in the High court of Delhi against the selection of Prof. VedPrakash as the vice president was acting as president for 18 months when the seat of chairman was deserted. Before this the seat had not remained vacant for more than 6 months and even the current chairman was jilted 14

for the post by the search cum selection committee. Finally UGC got its chairman after facing so many challenges on 18 January 2013 appointed by government of India. Prof. VedPrakash again came into limelight under the charge of getting Ph. D degree for his wife Mrs. Shimla illegally. On the petition of an NGO, Supreme Court issued notice to VedPrakash, His wife and JamiaHamdard University (Delhi) which cateredher degree. In the petition it was mentioned that Mrs. Shimla lacked in the minimum educational qualification to apply for Ph. D. She hadn’t even scored 55% marks in MA (English). When she was in look out for Ph. D at the same time she was working on full time basis at YMCA University of science & Technology in Faridabad. If you are frenzied to meet the UGC chairman in order to deliberate relevant facts and educational issues than do not worry because you can meet him very handily as the process is very transparent. You just need to drop a mail on the e mail id – chm.ugc@gmail.comand then continuous follow up is prescribed for more than 1 or 2, month time and every time you will receive the same answer that when he will get time will call you but that time will never come hit. We always curse the institutions, Universities for not to listening to our

problems. But it’s not their fault because the concerned authority is not interested to listen to the queries. Some Universities are not following the Proper track, no doubt, but what is the reason behind, it is the slack of the University Grants Commission. It provides the space to the educational institutes to go wrong. Notifications are issued but it is never looked after whether those notifications are worked upon or not. Audit of universities is a thing which we can imagine only in our dreams.

Study centers are helpful for the students There is nothing wrong with the universities, institutes, study centers, information centers and other bodies, but the problem is with the managing authorities which do not bear the responsibilities properly. Information and study centers are helpful for the students as they provide the information to the students in a proper way. A counselor can explain the things in the best way. India is a democratic country and we have got the right to decide about us. As per democracy student has got the right to take admission in any of the state and university.

Suggestions: State govt. along with UGC should check the record of the students in the university in proper way. They should have the complete information about the courses running in the university. 2 Visits in a year in the universities from the side of the government and UGC should be done, cross reification is also necessary if we really want to secure the future of the country youth.

INTERVIEW Sh. S.B.K.Singh (IPS) Joint Commissioner of Police Crime Branch

How has been your journey from an IPS to crime commissioner? t has been wonderful. I did my graduation from St. Stephen’s college in physics honours. After that I took up the exam for IPS and got selected and was allotted the UP cadet. I have worked in Delhi, Arunachal Pradesh, and Pondicherry. My first posting was in Delhi and I started as ACP Karolbagh. Do you think change in government affects the education system of our country? According to me, change in government do not have any effect on education system because aim of education should be the same for every government. Foreign Universities are going to enter in India. Where our education system doeslies at international level? It is not about Domestic or international education but it is about the importance which we should give to the education. Being literate and being educated are two different things. It is about the parameters on the basis of which you are judged. These parameters could the skills which helps you to adjust under all circumstances in a society, empathy towards others which motivates you to move ahead. Everybody lives for themselves but Education should teach the people to live for others as well. Let me clear one thing, whatever one learns in school and colleges forget within a year or two. There are very few people who are employed in their area of specialization. In real world practicality is required rather than learned knowledge, reason being we forget majority of the learned knowledge, but a part always remains in us that is the real knowledge. Is any change required in our education system? No comments on this because research should be done on this topic, certain parameters have to be fixed as what is the main goal of being educated? What is going on in the schools, colleges, and Universities? What curriculum they are

following? What is there mission and vision? We need to find out the answers of these questions in order to take a decision. Without research it would be immature to reply. We should be aware about the tools required to live life. Very few people take the initiative. If we will talk about the arts students, they don’t require to possess the knowledge of computer application but they should know how to send a mail. For learning this thing they need exposure and facility and this should be the part of our curriculum. With the increase in the stats of criminal activities and corruption, everybody should be made aware about how can they safeguard themselves, things they should remember while travelling, how to create a password and protect it. These curriculums should be added as optional courses along with facilities and exposure to those facilities. We are having regular courses, as per you vocational and optional courses should be added as well? Not vocational, but optional courses which should be linked with daily requirements, these optional courses should be targeted towards making the citizens of the country responsible, self-dependent and humble. If we talk about facilities, Rural India lacks in that instead of having so much talent. How can we make the facilities reach rural India? It has to start from somewhere, even at all the places. For that we need to put efforts. While selecting a candidate it does not matter whether he is from a city or a village, what matters is their exposure, value system, interest, capability, eligibility, aptitude, and also your destiny. I want to know about the vocational training facility program started for the police and youth by police department? This training programme named UYVA has been started for the youth of the country to prevent them from going into wrong hands. After completion of training they get the chance to work also if they are interested. If children of any policeman want to take the training, they are also welcome. Before starting the program we realized that the youth of India has got the ability to work and they need money, we planned to channelize their energy in doing something

constructive, in order to protect them from falling into the gulf of crime. We provide them with classes, training and employment. What are the safety parameters decided for the women constables? Each organization has anti sexual harassment committee. If she feels harassed, she can file a complaint than the committee looks after the matter. During training these constables are encouraged to take armed combocourses.it is not exactly judo karate but simpler to that. They are provided with self-defence training and are explained about what sort of action should be taken under what circumstances. Their confidence level is high. Why there is a gap between common men and police department? There are many reasons behind this. The Colonial hangover that is embedded in our inner side could be one of the reason, Presentation of police department through Movies and TV serials, Insensitive behaviour on part of some police persons of ground level are also the reasons behind this. There is a gap between the expectations of the mass and the expectations that police can fulfil according to the law. If we want to bridge this gap than we need to clarify the laws to the common people. They should be made aware about their rights, they should know the procedure of coming to the police. The difference between bail able and nonbail able offences should be made clear. Police department should also try to change its image by changing their attitude. I am sharing my Meerut PHQ visit experience with you, everything there was synchronized, everybody was well mannered, but in the local than scenario was just reverse. When we (media) did not received proper response over there than how can we expect that common person will get proper treatment? That’s what I have been telling you. The police personals are not manufactured in some other factory, they are also the part of this society only. In a year training only we can impart a few skills to them but changing somebody’s inheritance in one year is next to impossible. If he has put on the dress, it does not mean he has become different. We can just teach them but the thing that needs concentration is the upbringing part that we need to focus.

various cases of Uttar Pradesh violating the rules instead of reforming the people they themselves are opposing and using their powers in a wrong way. Uttar Pradesh has always been a state when laws are taken in the hands of police officials. They wear their police uniform as a weapon to dominate over the citizens and even the officials working under them. Every other day, a bad face of the UP police is being shown in the newspapers and televisions. Recently only on 14th January 2014, news came from Firozabad where late night a women was beaten ruthlessly by three cops for protesting against the dead body lying at the highway. For sure, the cops were suspended afterwards but this bad face of the police force was being shown to the people. Ghaziabad subinspector Vikas Yadav was arrested by a team of Delhi Police for allegedly sending pornographic clips to a woman journalist. Taking action against the sub-inspector, Ghaziabad police today suspended him with immediate effect. Woman journalist had filed a complaint against Vikas Yadav for sending obscene video clips on her mobile phone."Accused sub-inspector, who was posted at Brijvihar police post, was arrested by a team of Delhi Police. The police officials at higher level do not give respect and importance to the persons working under them. Sometimes, they insult and make them do such thing which humiliates the person from inner core for the life they are living. A case was filed by a constable in September 2012, when a constable in Uttar Pradesh complained against ASP (Additional Superintendent of Police) that the latter forced the former low division constable to tie his shoes laces. This is clearly the misuse of the powers given to the person for the security of common people but not to dominate the lower division constables. One more case in Ghaziabad, Six Uttar Pradesh police constables were suspended with immediate effect for their alleged involvement in extortion. Senior superintendent of police Dharmender Singh took the decision to suspend the policemen, including a traffic constable, after several complaints reached his office, a senior police officer said here. The SSP's office got complaints that these policemen were indulging in extortion. A departmental inquiry was conducted and they were found guilty. All six policemen were suspended with immediate effect. Varanasi: A Station House Officer

According to SSP Ghaziabad-“The reason behind the suspension of police officials is hiding themselves from their responsibilities and 1% suspension is the outcome of their involvement in unlawful activities. To be privileged they take shortcuts in their life.” Stats say that the number of suspended police officials in year 2010 was 171, in 2011 was 136, in 2012 was 113, in 2013 was 128, in January 2014- 10 have been suspended, out of which 4 has been fired. (SHO) has been suspended for alleged laxity in probing the murder case , Aniruddh Singh, SHO Cant, was suspended for his laxity in probing the deputy jailor murder case," Senior Superintendent of police (SSP) Rajesh D Modak said, adding that even ten days after the incident, the investigations have not reached any conclusions. 367 suspension orders were issued during this period. While 516 police officers were suspended, subsequent action was followed against only 223 policemen. Senior officers completely forgot 287 policemen (56 per cent) after suspending them. Out of these 223 officers in which subsequent action was taken, 36 were found not guilty and thus only 187 policemen (around one-third of those suspended) were finally punished in any manner," In her plea, she had said that in a number of orders the Supreme Court and Allahabad High Court have clearly stated that suspension of officials should not be a routing exercise but a step taken in extraordinary circumstances after studying complete facts. In her letter to the DGP, she said two-thirds of the suspended

police officials were not found guilty and were reinstated which raises question marks over the decision making process of the senior officers. "One ASI Vinod Kumar was suspended within 20 days reinstated. He was again suspended after 40 days on May 19 and was reinstated in two months. What was the reason behind suspending an officer twice in five months and reinstating him, “point is this? There are numerous cases that show the true colors of today’s police force in Uttar Pradesh and even the other states of India. But, we cannot deny the fact that in this time also there are some honest and responsible officers who know their duties well and even perform them with their best efforts. They stake their lives at risk to save the common man. But, due to some of the corrupt and defaulter cops, the image of the whole police force is being destroyed in the eyes of the common citizens. Instead of being the saviors, a common man is saving himself or herself from the UP police force. They do not find themselves safe in the hands of this official department. A policeman single handed on duty can devise or demolish the entire image of

REALITY CONNECT the Uttar Pradesh Police system. Why gap between police and public? There is a difference between how we want our police to be, how Uttar Pradesh police are and how they really want to police us. There is a widening gap between the common people and police services. Obviously, the faith of the people on police has been lost. When the one official is found in any of the scam, the whole of the department is judge don that basis only. The budding anomaly between the two is a worrying situation in the future. The major reason behind this gap is the minimum interaction of the people with the police department. The distrust of the UP police is so much that people prefer to live with the crime situations than going to the police officials for any support. But to maintain the commanding government of India, there is a necessity to reform the Indian police force. An eye is needed for the accountability of the officials of the police department. Accountability of Indian police: There is a lack of commanding bodies to keep a check over the police officials. According to the Central Government of India, the Supreme Court has ordered that: l There is an authority for the lodging of complaints against the police officials up to the rank of Deputy Superintendent of India. l The authority has also the rights to investigate against any police officials in any case. l In India, we have 18 states police complaints authorities. l A serious action will be taken against the officials found guilty and the court will give a decision for the big crimes committed by any. l Internal investigation can also be done by the superior officials to every movement of the officials working under them. l Internal mechanisms are more effective’s one than the external mechanism since the internal officials are known with the structure and culture of the police department. l The complainants can directly sue any official who has assaulted them in any way. l There is accountability for the police officials through the civic bodies, government agencies or court or legislatives. l Courts can give the decisions for the 18

default police officers of their fault are proved by any person. The parliament of India can take a measurable action by giving a legislative for any kind of misconduct of the police official for any common citizen or the lower division officials. They can pass a unique budget for the resource allocation to the officers taking in concern all their activities so that they need not go for any other means. Government can create awareness among the people about the laws made for the misconduct of any police official and encourage the common citizen to initiate and take a step against the crime. Independent statutory bodies are made for the reinforcement of laws made for the corrupt police officers and human rights violators. Through these agencies, more cases of scams come in to limelight. There is a constant push from some external agency; more probability is there for the following of the laws. The establishment of independent commission works with the police department only but they oversee the activities carried by each state police department for the upcoming problems and if any complaint is lodged against any state department police, investigation is done on the basis of the complaint.

Choosing a particular strategy to reform our police department is a bit peculiar ones because not any one reform or law can mend it all way. Each law has its own positive and negative points. The cases upheld in the supreme court of various officials are still pending form various past years and the faulty officials are still enjoying their independence and the suffering body is once again the common man. The management of any independent body is not efficient enough to catch the crime of the officials. The range of matters is an incomplete approach for any government or civic body. The independent bodies are either unresourced or understaffed. The dissatisfaction of the public with the lodging of complaints of corrupt officials is another issue to be resolved. If we take in to account, there are various issues that are to be solved and resolved by the Government. A proper management is needed to strengthen the relation between police officials and citizenry. We must make such laws and amendments that make our country’s security the best one and renowned one in the world. Every person of each age group must feel safe whether it is a women or any other citizen. The police officials are dissolved themselves in the viscous circle created by the police department.

t x e n

Being the head of the Parliament, Prime minister of India must possess assorted qualities.

understand what is in the interest of the people and the country and make all the efforts to accomplish them. GOOD POlITICIAN- To be the Prime Minister, one should first be great politician. If he comes out to be an outstanding politician, then only he can make others believe that politics is not a nasty game.

He must have personal courage to take many tough decisions for the country and maintaining cool at the same time. APPROACHABlE- The head of the country should be one who is distinct but at the same time he could be approached by the common people. He must be unique individual, distinguished from us but still should understand the situation of common people and can be easily approached by them in their need. He should maintain the perfect balance. HOW PEOPlE WANT TO SEE FUTURE OF INDIA India is an ancient land, where rays of wisdom stroke first before it made its way to other countries. But if we talk about present, problems hovering over our country are more complicated than any other country. It’s mainly because of diverse religions, languages, cultures, traditions. On the other hand, they can become the ideals of the national unity. As we have entered twenty first century, Indians compare their country with one of the most developed and developing nations like America, China, Australia. They look for stable economy unlike today's shaky economy of the country. People of India want to see a picture of tremendous progress and prosperity. They want that standard of living of people must be raised in the coming years. Problems of employment,

revolutionize the way...

poverty, illiteracy should be eradicated from roots. Indians also look for a safer India where every individual feels secure specially women whose safety is at risk these days. People aspire for highly educated, young, dynamic, energetic and dedicated leaders to run their country in the future. They want that voice of united India would be heard with utmost attention throughout the world. A developed nation is the mission that Indians want to take up, it’s not mere a vision in their minds. Indians should take decision of selecting new Prime Minister on the following basis: Prime Minister must have a unique personality. He should be well educated person with the pleasing personality. He must have the lineage to represent our country in the foremost councils of the world. He must have innovative ideas to take the country on the progressive path. The most important thing that he should be the role model and should not have any kind of criminal record ever in his past. He should have the caliber to take up the challenges and fulfill them on time. It would be better if people go for a candidate who has already ruled a province or a state as he would have the right ideology to run the government because he has already gone through various situations although on a lower level. But definitely he would have an idea how to deal with them. The Prime Ministerial candidate must have proved himself earlier and should not be just the one who make false

promises. One more quality which people must look for in the candidate is that he should be grounded and would not be a high headed person. He should be such a person who would take responsibility of the country and its people. He would lead the country from the front and show his caliber by his work not by just mere words. Now it’s up to us how we choose our Prime Minister.

QUAlITIES OF NARENDRA MODI ANAlYzER- Long term planning and clear focus is what made Mr. Modi and the biggest example is Gujarat. He has an extraordinary role in the development of the state which could never be possible if he didn’t analyze the problems at that time. Moreover by analyzing the stuff, he knows when and how he can make deep impact on people as well as media. We call it game plan or what but Modi maintains his brand value like no other politician could make. SElF-MADE MAN- Modi is the admirer of Gandhi and he himself says there's no greater inspiration than Mahatma Gandhi for taking the lessons on brand building. From his biography it is clear that he has started struggling at such an early age and now he has reached to such heights only by his own efforts and struggle.

POSSIBlE PRIME MINISTER CHAIR HOlDER In the coming elections for Prime Minister post, Narender Modi has the chance of winning as stated by news channels and magazines that conducted opinion polls. National Democratic Alliance (NDA) could gain five percent increase in share, if Mr. Modi is envisaged as Prime Minister Candidate. As he has proved himself a phenomenal leader in Gujarat by taking it to all the heights of development, Modi has gained support from many by now. By virtue of his qualities, he has become most trusted public figure. He fulfills all the adequacies for the position of Prime Minister who can shape the future of India.

common man if the citizens will know their rights and the power they are having in their hands. Maintaining criminal justice is the duty of the governing bodies of the country but letting it implement in the society or not is really in the hands of a common people of the country. Crime occurs in the society occurs when

these factors merge together and let the crime to commit: l The individual has a desire to participate in a banned or illegal matters l The tools required to commit that crime l An opportunity or the weak persons for the crime to be acted upon One cannot change the thoughts or

desires of any being but definitely we can make ourself aware of the powers and rights that our constituency has given us to fight for ourselves and our near and dear ones. Government is trying their level best to protect us from crimes as much as possible by one or the other way but we must try from our level to fight against any crime and take a stand for ourself. With the modern technology, the ways of policing and other law enforcement techniques are changing but the need of the hour is of the awareness among the common man. There is a need for sure by the government also to mend the laws much more in a better way. The tasks of the police force are amended in the following areas: l Preventing any type of crime l Security of VIP’s l Investigation of crime and find the true evidence l Collation of intelligence l Prevent the illegal means and works in the country like smuggling l Monitor the border areas and railways Most of us are not aware of our rights and sit silently accepting it as the God’s will power. But there is a great saying of some great persons that God help those who help themselves. So, instead of relying totally on the governing bodies, it’s better to take a stand for yourself and try your level best to protect yourself from any kind of cheat, fraud, dispute and discrimination by raising a voice for yourself and make a landmark history for other people also who are silent just because of the fear of the consequences. Indian being a democratic country adheres to the problems of all but the need is to make the government listen to your issues through the means of media since we have the weapons of modern technology in our hands. There is need of the campaigns and news channels to promote the laws and rights that are made for the humans instead of wasting time. Strict adherence to the people working in government agencies is required so that they employ their effectiveness in the service of the people but not in their self- interests. If certain amendments are made, we can hope for a better vision of our country and make it a reliable and developed country within few years only.

In today technological world, internet is used in every field and by each age group people. Every single day, computers have long lasting effect on the lives of people because of its utilization.

Similar is the case for internet. Internet is today used in every field and it eases the person in every way. But along with its prosperity comes the obstruction also. The major obstruction in the internet world is the “Cybercrime”. Cybercrime if we describe in a simple language is basically the criminal exploitation of internet. The grouping of computer, internet and the human brain for the lousy motives leads to the foundation of Cybercrime. Whereas if we

define it in technological definition, Cybercrime is defined as the offences committed against a person or a group to disservice them physically or mentally by their criminal motive using modern technologies of internet like chat rooms, emails, notice boards or groups etc. such violations can harm not only the integrity of any individual but even the security of any country. In these crimes, basically any private information is being hacked by violators by unlawful means and unauthorized intruders. Cybercriminals use computer technology to access the private data, business proposals, spread virus in the system for malicious purposes. The individual or the groups of individuals who perform such offensive tasks are called as “hackers”. This insecurity of the information technology has led to the doubt that if this much development of the technology is really beneficial or not. The hacker’s success in their hacking with the help of following modes explained below:-

Cybercrimes are very common in every part of the world. Attack at Zapoos.com on January 2012 is one of the major attacks by the criminals when the credit card numbers, billing and other shipping information of the clients was being revealed. Similar was the case in in 1970 when millions of money was robbed through internet from someone’s saving account in a bank from high security constraints on the user’s accounts. Likewise, there are numerous Cybercrime cases occurring frequently in every corner of the world by the hacker’s mind. These crimes are mostly for the money only but recently some cases have been found in which the hackers revealed the personal data of the people because of their personal conflict and hate and in a lure to insult them. Cyber law in India As there is a well saying that criminology will go in every field where the opportunity will prevail. Indian government keeping in mind the increasing depth and rate of cybercrimes in the country has made certain amendments to reform and halt these criminals to safeguard the common

This techniques involves the modifying the raw data before the processing of the data and then again altering it after its processing. The major victims of this Cybercrime are the electricity boards and telephone exchanges. People cheat the government so as to pay less electricity and telephone bills by altering the data and management of the admin panel of the websites.

Protection of Sites from Hackers: All of us are well known with some social networking sites like Facebook, Twitter and various other websites in which transactions takes place. There are various points upon which a developer or even some naïve person making any website must keep in mind while developing the code: We must test our modules differently before making the site online or updating any module to the live website. Testing of each module is very important. There are certain secure codes and limitationsprovided in each language that does not allow the easy hacking and cracking of the login ID’S and passwords. The developer must acknowledge those codes for their respective languages and software’s. There are various tools available in the market to check the weak points in any code or the modules like Yasca, Parasoft for checking the source code of any language. One can also defend the code by giving sufficient buffer space for each input data. If you trust your data blindly, then your data may be at risk. The regular check-ups with your databases is mandatory. The coder must avoid cross-site scripting as it may arise various issues like flaws in the current web page or SQL injections.

n order to establish any group or any big organization, laws are the basic amendments. To structure any organization certain laws are required to be made and to be followed, then how can a country work without any laws. For the peaceful environment and smooth running of any group, certain rules and regulations are needed to be implemented. Laws form the foundation of any system. Laws basically are a system of rules and regulations that are to be enforced by the federal government of any country. The law establishes limitations to every field for the welfare and better working in any field.

in the Constitution of India. This is the lawbook of India in which all the laws and offences are written and the one opposing any of the law is being punished accordingly. The laws in India are made after a long research on the law book of various countries. The influence of Ireland and Spanish laws can be seen clearly in the Indian Constitution. There is no any discrimination of religion, breed or caste in the foundation of any of the Indian law system. There are near about 1221 laws embedded in the Constitution of India. The importance of laws in various sectors is explained below: l Security from any kind of harm: The law protects us from any kind of harm that may be physical, mental or social. After the acknowledgement of any kind of crime by any citizen, referred

investigation is being held for the crime and if the person is found guilty for any kind of crime, he or she may be given certain punishment or fine to be paid to the government. It not only protects the citizens of the country bit also aids in the development of the country. For every type of crime, distinct courts are being set up by the government. l Acknowledge us with our rights: If we know our rights, we can deal with any situation or difficulty in a better way.

weapons of laws, how can we use them in any way but if we at least know that our government has given us certain powers we can at least think of using them in an effective way to protect our self from any kind of harm. They are important for the security of families and enhance the way of life. To overlook the smooth running of groups: For any department, there is a urgent need to supervise it in better and effective ways, but the points is who will supervise these agencies and organizations since every being is busy in their own works. For this deed, government has made the various agencies and bodies to overlook the smooth working of these departments. Certain laws are made to be followed by all these agencies and the employees working under the respective for the service of the common people. Laws are implemented to carry out number of functions and promote the good common and resolve the conflicts between various departments and groups.

law education in schools: We can reside the laws in the coming generations so that till the time they grow up and become a responsible person, they are well equipped with the facts what is wrong and right for them. But the thing is how law education can be implemented in the schools and colleges. Various ways and facts through which laws can be implemented are given below: l In schools and colleges, students are most receptive to learn new things and shape their values accordingly. So, if we give little bit of law education to the students, they can become a responsible citizens. l If we teach students to not break any law at their school and college law, they will gradually understand the importance of laws and the consequences of breaking those laws. l The schools deal with various types of deals and contracts to purchase any goods. The students must be illustrated with such examples to acknowledge them with the aspects of contracts and the after effects of winding up the contracts in between. These little issues help them to get the knowledge of simple tactics of law that will help them understand the complex law afterwards in a better way. l Discipline is the most important

requirement in the smooth functioning of any organization. Pupils must be taught to live and work in discipline. Since various people are being employed in the schools or universities, the authorities must not be biased in any way with any worker of small or big division. This teaches the students ti be fair with every being and not to discriminate the beings on any basis. If we take a simple example, when a student cheats in any exam, we just punish that student but no one ponders upon making the student understand that why cheating is bad for him or her or how this effect can later in their future.

Common laws for every citizen: There are certain laws that every citizen of India must know. Some of them are explained below: l Criminal laws: these laws are made for any being who commits any type of crime. The federal government has made certain laws for the degree of crime committed by the humans. These laws made the humans secure from any harm that may be physical, mental or social. The proofs required to prove the accused the criminal must be very certain. Even a single doubt does not lead to the final decision. l Contract laws: This law regards the employees hired by any big or small organization. The liabilities of the employees are taken in concern. The law is divided in to various subcategories such as wages, bonus pay, working hours, working environment and many other factors that influence the life of an employee. Various acts are being made for every specific category. It regards the legal documents and contracts being signed between two groups or between an employee and boss. The law implements personal implications and obligations to the each contract that may be private or government approved. l Tax laws: Various laws are prescribed by the Indian government for the assets belonging to them. Income tax, sales tax and property taxes are being implemented on the citizens of India. The Income Tax Act was made in 1961 for all the people residing in the country to pay certain amount of earnings to the government for the maintenance and creating the public assets for their welfare only. The tax

l

rules and notifications are clearly given on the official and various other sites created by the government soas to acknowledge every citizen with these laws. labor law: This law deals with the employment regulation in India. Till date, more than fifty two laws are being made for the employees on the national or state level. It focuses on the protection of workers that may be working in some private or government firm. Certain laws like minimum wages, working hours are being limited by the government for every employee. Civil laws: the civil laws deals with the disputes between any family members or even two groups for any personal or professional or social reasons. There are civil courts in all major states to resolve the issues of that particular state. For nay filing of case in civil courts, there is a certain procedure to be followed by every citizen. These are not criminal offences. The disputes are mostly for the financial property or some usual fight between two bodies. The burden of proof is less in civil cases as compared to the criminal cases. Family laws: These laws deals with the family matters such as divorce, marriage, dowry, domestic relationships, unions or any disputes in the family. If we say in one sentence, family law is the one dealing with the breaking or making of a family. Adoption case and child custody also comes under this category. Bailable and Non-Bailable offences under law:

The offences committed by any accused are of two types: Bailable and Non-Bailable, both of which are explained below: Bailable offences: If the person is detained or arrested without any prior warrant or information to the accused to the police station. Non-bailable offences: in these offenses, the case is investigated for the refuse or grant of the bail to the accused. If any strong grounds are found for the person to be guilt, the bail is being refused. On the other side, if it is found that the accused case is strong, he or she can be granted the bail for few days or till the nest hearing. In this case, the officer or court doing so requires jolting down for his grant or refusal of bail.

he Constitution (Eighty-sixth Amendment) Act, 2002 inserted Article 21-A in the Constitution of India to provide free and compulsory education of all children in the age group of six to fourteen years as a fundamental right in such a manner as the state may, by law, determine. The Right of Children to Free and Compulsory Education (RTE) Act, 2009 means that every child has a right to full time elementary education of satisfactory and equitable quality in a formal school which satisfies certain essential norms and standards.

The RTE Act provides for the: (i) Right of children to free and compulsory education until achievement of basic education in neighborhood school. (ii) It clarifies that ‘compulsory education’ means that obligation of the suitable government to produce free basic education and guarantee 36

required admission, group action and completion of basic education to each kid within the six to 14 years. ‘Free’ implies that no kid shall be at risk of pay any reasonably fee or charges or expenses which can stop him or her from following and finishing basic education. (iii) It makes provisions for a nonadmitted kid to be admitted to associate degree age acceptable category. (iv) It specifies the duties and responsibilities of acceptable Governments, agency and parents in providing free and required education, and sharing of monetary and alternative responsibilities between the Central and State Governments. (v) It lays down the norms and standards relating inter alia to Pupil Teacher Ratios (PTRs), buildings and infrastructure, school-working days, teacher-working hours.

(vi) It provides for balanced employment of teachers by making certain that the required pupil teacher ratio is maintained for every faculty, instead of even as a median for the State or District or Block, so making certain that there's no urban-rural imbalance in teacher postings. It conjointly provides for prohibition of employment of teachers for noneducational work, aside from decennial census, elections to local authority, state legislatures and parliament, and disaster relief. (vii) It provides for appointment of suitable trained faculties, i.e. faculty with the requisite entry and educational qualifications. (viii)It prohibits (a) physical social control and mental harassment; (b) screening procedures for admission of children; (c) revenue enhancement fee; (d) personal tuition by academics and (e) running of schools while not recognition,

RTE Act came into effect on 1st April 2010 and has done a little in increasing the literacy rate. India, being home to 19% of the world’s children, needs words of awareness more. About one third of its population (around 48 crores, according to the 2001 census) is below the age of 18, and around 74% of this population lives in countryside areas. The population in the age group of zero to twenty five is 56 crores, which in turn is 54% of the country’s total population. Indeed, India has the world’s largest number of youngsters. Diversity in Languages can be said as one of the biggest challenges in implementing RTE Act. Around 1,618 languages, 544 dialects and 1,942 Local tongues are spoken in India; schools impart education in 148 different modes. Some 27000 small and big newspapers and magazines are published in the country. All of this poses a huge challenge to India to produce educated and empowered young citizens. India has one third of the world’s illiterate population – a worrisome trend (2011 fig. 74.04% of people above the age of 7 are literate). Male literacy level has reached 82.12%, whereas female literacy level is 64.46%, the difference being that of 16%. The total literacy growth of 12.6% (from 1991 – 2001) has declined to 9.21%. The unawareness of RTE Act, 2009 can be blamed for increase in the child labour level. It would cost $760 billion over a 20-year period to end child labour (over 60 million children are found doing labour). The estimated benefits in terms of better education and health is about six times that - over $4 trillion in economies where child labours are found. Some children are forced to work up to 18 hours in a day, often never leaving the boundaries of the factory or loom shed depriving them of their rights to Education! RTE Act for 2014-15, a survey presented that it was a droop show in Karnataka in the past two years. The main cause of the setback is that many private

iConnect

schools are not even aware of the rules. RTE requires all Private/Government aided schools to reserve 25% of seats to children (to be reimbursed by the state as part of the public-private partnership plan). Kids are admitted in to the private schools based on caste based reservations. It also prohibits all unrecognized schools from practice and makes provisions for no donation or capitation fees and no interview of the child or parent/s for admission. The act also provides that no child shall be detained back, barred or required to pass a board examination until the completion of elementary education. There is also a provision for different training of school drop-outs to bring them up to par with students of the same age. Bishop’s, St. Mary’s and SV Union schools had filed a petition against the 25% Seats for children from financially and socially challenged sections of society. They filed this petition on behalf of the Supreme Court judgement on 2012 according to which RTE should not be applicable on the unaided minority schools. But even if these schools do not get any support from the government in financial terms it does not mean they are not aided because they get concession in property tax, lease, and other charges. This way they also come under the aided minority schools and indirectly under the RTE act. Delhi's Education Minister Manish Sisodia had lamented that of the 2.65 lakh students who badge out from schools in

Delhi only 90,000 succeed to get into Delhi colleges. He proposed 90% seats be reserved for Delhi residents in DU colleges that which are fully funded by Delhi government. This decision has disappointed the students from across India, including the North-eastern students who flock to Delhi for Quality education. In a survey in 131 Delhi schools it was found that they were not working as per the norms of RTE. As per the act 40 students should be there in one class but there were round 80 to 100 students in every class. Proper drinking water facilities are not there, few schools are lacking in outdoor facilities. UNICEF states that for every 30 students there should be a competent and trained teacher, but our education system lacks in that too. As per 2011 census Kerala was praised for having the highest literacy rate 93.9% but the situation was reverse in Bihar with just 63.8% literacy rate. According to 2013 survey Tripura has left Kerala behind by attaining 94.65% literacy rate. Instead of these factors 287 million Indians cannot read or write, and that counts to be 39% of the world’s illiterate adults. We need to find out the shortcoming in the RTE act and should try to improve them in order to make our education system best in the world. India is blessed with the average number of youngsters during this time so we should try to utilize this advantage by making them eligible and compatible.
