By: M.S.Yatnatti: Editor and Video Journalist Bengaluru: Despite CM Siddaramaiah recommended on the file number CM/313/NOM/17 Dated 31-01-2017 name of Sri Shankar B.K face of Vishwakarma community in Karnataka and congress worker for 25 years worked in various capacities in KPCC for any membership of the board, but till date the orders were not issued by CM secretariat. “Siddaramaiah's assurances to Sri Shankar B.K of the community is aimed to neutralizing and checkmating Nanjundi who has been trying to provoke the community against the Congress. AICC general secretary K C Venugopal need to look into such lapses and correct them before elections as he was picked by Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi for election-bound Karnataka to strategize and motivate the party's rank and file .During the past four months, Venugopal's sole agenda has been to sort out misunderstandings among members. In an interview, reportedly he said the Uttar Pradesh polls were a learning experience for the party .UP assembly polls: The Congress learnt some lessons from the UP polls where the BJP created sub-castes among castes. Reportedly Working on his caste arithmetic ahead of the 2018 elections, CM Siddaramaiah has started wooing the fragmented Vishwakarma community with assurances of granting land and increasing financial aid to it.The community (comprising goldsmiths, blacksmiths, bronze artisans, carpenters and stone masons) had been obscure on the state's political map till recently . But the CM has put the spotlight on the community by stating “it should be an integral part of the mainstream society“, and his government will do everything for them.So, why is Siddaramaiah suddenly so upbeat about this community? Sources said it is part of a strategy geared at consolidating the Ahinda votes. Unlike other leaders who ignored the Vishwakarma community , Siddaramaiah viewed it as a potent political force. His yet-to-be-revealed caste census reportedly pegs the Vishwakarma population in the state at around 15 lakh. This is quite a huge number and when added to the other backward classes' category, the overall number goes up significantly. Realizing there is no platform for community members to hone their professional skills, Siddaramaiah reportedly said his government will work towards opening an exclusive university for youngsters of the community.

By : M.S.Yatnatti Editor and Video Journalist Bengaluru: Department of Labour by its draft notification dated 07-09-2017b intends to create contract labour or NMR daily wage worker which karnataka government banned in 2007 as per SC order. And also creating two categories of One will be contract employee paid Rs 17 000/- and other will be permanent employee paid about 40,000/- and discrimination among employee and both are paid by BBMP different salaries where as SC order mandated Equal pay for equal work . The Department of Labour is one of the oldest Departments of Government and is carrying out the responsibility of labour welfare and maintenance of smooth industrial relations. The activities regarding enforcement of labour laws and promotion of industrial peace are simultaneously carried on, so that the twin objectives of industrial growth and labour welfare can be achieved. Pourakarmikas were demanding total abolition of contract system in BBMP and total regularization of Pourakarmikas. .Instead of abolishing the contract system government itself is promoting contract labour or NMR daily wage worker which karnataka government banned in 2007. One will be contract employee paid Rs 17 000/- and other will be permanent employee paid about 40,000/- and discrimination among employee and both are paid by BBMP different salaries. Equal pay for equal work.In civil appeal number 213 of 2013 the issue for consideration of the Hon’ble Supreme Court was as under:“whether temporarily engaged employees (daily-wage employees, ad- appointees, employees appointed on casual basis, contractual employees and the like), are entitled to minimum of the regular pay-scale, along-with dearness allowance (as revised from time to time) on account of their performing the same duties, which are discharged by those engaged on regular basis, against sanctioned posts”.The Hon’ble Supreme Court held that:“There can be no doubt, that the principle of ‘equal pay for equal work’ would be applicable to all the concerned temporary employees, so as to vest in them the right to claim wages, at par with the minimum of the pay-scale of regularly engaged Government employees, holding the same post”.In so far as the contract labour is concerned, the Contract Labour (Regulation & Abolition) Act, 1970 and the rules framed thereunder regulate the employment of contract labour.

As per the orders issued by Government of Karnataka nn 07-08-2017 BBMP will recruit 5486 pourakarmikas and others will be contract pourakarmikas will be paid by BBMP directly .Permanent pourakarmikas will have different salaries and contract pourakarmikas will have different salary. No equal pay to equal work. Earlier contractors were exploiting and now government will exploit them. pourakarmikas were demanding that all should be made BBMP employees. Earlier BBMP had announced recruitment of 4000 pourakarmikas and stopped recruitment process stating that according to court order it will regularize the pourakarmikas but without the knowledge of pourakarmikas Bengaluru Minister and chief Minister it challenged the order on flimsy and technical ground and got stay of the order on it and now neither recruitment nor regularization and nor abolition of contract system as promised to high court of Karnataka .Why BBMP is playing the dirty game with the lives of pourakarmikas is big question being asked by everyone in Karnataka who are interested with welfare of SC ST development. in recent order by HKHC in WP Nos 201021-022/2015 (s-res) dated 5-06-2015 to all commissioners of BBMP ,city corporations of Tumkur Shivamogga , Vijayapura Mngalore Belgaum Bellary Davangere Huballi-Dharwad Kalburgi and Mysuru are directed to take appropriate and immediate steps to regularize the services of daily wade sweepers scavengers or purakarmikas either working on out sorce or through contractors wthin six months from date of order. The Government could have implemented this order and resolved the issues with pourakarmikas instead it challenged it on on a technical ground and got injustice to all pourakarmikas .Reportedly few officers have vested interest and in connivance with few contractors are spell bound to inflict injuries to pourakarmikas by not allowing the BBMP to regularize the pourakarmikas despite legal remidies were available and made BBMP to back stab by challenging the beneficial court order HKHC in WP Nos 201021-022/2015 (s-res) dated 5-06-2015 stopped the recruitment process or regularization process by abolishing contract system  . It all dirty game played by few people to inflict injustice on SC ST Persons .This is nothing but atrocity on SC ST persons according to newly amended POA Act 2015 .

KARNATAKA STATE NEED TO MAKE FULLY FUNCTIONAL STATE LEVEL VIGILANCE COMMITTEE (VCS) U/S SECTION 29 PER NATIONAL FOOD SECURITY ACT 2013
by Admin User - Saturday, 16 September 2017, 05:00 PM
 

 

By: M.S.Yatnatti: Editor and Video Journalist Bengaluru: Given that leakages in PDS reportedly range from 40 to 50 percent, and in some states reportedly go as high as 60 to 70 percent, GoI should defer implementation of NFSA in states that have not done end to end computerization; have not put the list of beneficiaries online for anyone to verify, and have not set up vigilance committees to check pilferage from PDS. Karnataka government has reportedly nominated five persons for state level food vigilance committee .The State Government with an aim to monitor the distribution of the essential commodities that are being distributed through the Public Distribution System (PDS) and thereby to ensure the participation of the Public in monitoring of PDS, has constituted vigilance committees. State level has been constituted by nominating five unofficial members with host o official members and public representatives which will under the chairmanship of Hon' ble Minister for Food, Civil supplies and Consumer Protection.

High Level Committee (HCL) on restructuring of Food Corporation of India (FCI) has submitted its report to the Government. It was submitted by Shri Shanta Kumar, Chairman of the Committee to the Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi 21-01-2015 . The HCL was set up by the Government on 20th August, 2014.The major issue before the Committee was how to make the entire food grain management system more efficient by reorienting the role of FCI in MSP operations, procurement, storage and distribution of grains under Targeted Public Distribution System (TPDS).The Committee had wide consultations with several Chief Ministers, Food Secretaries and other stakeholders in various States. Suggestions from public were invited through various newspapers also. Executive Summary of the report is as follows- Backdrop: Government of India (GoI) set up a High Level Committee (HLC) in August 2014 with Shri Shanta Kumar as the Chairman, six members and a special invitee to suggest restructuring or unbundling of FCI with a view to improve its operational efficiency and financial management. GoI also asked HLC to suggest measures for overall improvement in management of foodgrains by FCI; to suggest reorienting the role and functions of FCI in MSP operations, storage and distribution of foodgrains and food security systems of the country; and to suggest cost effective models for storage and movement of grains and integration of supply chain of foodgrains in the country.

The HLC had wide consultations with various stakeholders in its several meetings in different parts of the country. It also invited comments through advertisements in newspapers and electronic media. HLC would like to gratefully acknowledge that it has benefitted immensely from this consultative process, and many of its recommendations are based on very intensive discussions with stakeholders. In order to conceive reorienting the role of FCI and its consequent restructuring, one has to revisit the basic objectives with which FCI was created, and what was the background of food situation at that time. It is against that backdrop, one has to see how far FCI has achieved its objectives, what the current situation on foodgrain front, what are the new challenges with regard to food security, and how best these challenges can be met with a reoriented or restructured institution like FCI.FCI was set up in 1965 (under the Food Corporation Act, 1964) against the backdrop of major shortage of grains, especially wheat, in the country. Imports of wheat under PL- 480 were as high as 6-7 MMT, when country's wheat production hovered around 10-12 MMT, and country did not have enough foreign exchange to buy that much quantity of wheat from global markets. Self-sufficiency in grains was the most pressing objective, and keeping that in mind high yielding seeds of wheat were imported from Mexico. Agricultural Prices Commission was created in 1965 to recommend remunerative prices to farmers, and FCI was mandated with three basic objectives: (1) to provide effective price support to farmers; (2) to procure and supply grains to PDS for distributing subsidized staples to economically vulnerable sections of society; and (3) keep a strategic reserve to stabilize markets for basic foodgrains. How far FCI has achieved these objectives and how far the nation has moved on food security front? The NSSO's (70th round) data for 2012-13 reveals that of all the paddy farmers who reported sale of paddy during July-December 2012, only 13.5 percent farmers sold it to any procurement agency (during January-June 2013, this ratio for paddy farmers is only 10 percent), and in case of wheat farmers (January-June, 2013), only 16.2 percent farmers sold to any procurement agency. Together, they account for only 6 percent of total farmers in the country, who have gained from selling wheat and paddy directly to any procurement agency. That diversions of grains from PDS amounted to 46.7 percent in 2011-12 (based on calculations of offtake from central pool and NSSO's (68th round) consumption data from PDS); and that country had hugely surplus grain stocks, much above the buffer stock norms, even when cereal inflation was hovering between 8-12 percent in the last few years. This situation existed even after exporting more than 42 MMT of cereals during 2012-13 and 2013-14 combined, which India has presumably never done in its recorded history. What all this indicates is that India has moved far away from the shortages of 1960s, into surpluses of cereals in post-2010 period, but somehow the food management system, of which FCI is an integral part, has not been able to deliver on its objectives very efficiently. The benefits of procurement have not gone to larger number of farmers beyond a few states, and leakages in TPDS remain unacceptably high. Needless to say, this necessitates a re-look at the very role and functions of FCI within the ambit of overall food management systems, and concerns of food security.

Major Recommendations of HLC: Below is a summary of major recommendations of HLC keeping in mind how procurement benefits can reach larger number of farmers; how PDS system can be re-oriented to give better deal to economically vulnerable consumers at a lower cost and in a financially sustainable manner; and finally how stocking and movement operations can be made more efficient and cost effective in not only feeding PDS but also in stabilizing grain markets. On PDS and NFSA related issues: HLC recommends that GoI has a second look at NFSA, its commitments and implementation. Given that leakages in PDS range from 40 to 50 percent, and in some states go as high as 60 to 70 percent, GoI should defer implementation of NFSA in states that have not done end to end computerization; have not put the list of beneficiaries online for anyone to verify, and have not set up vigilance committees to check pilferage from PDS. HLC also recommends to have a relook at the current coverage of 67 percent of population; priority households getting only 5 kgs/person as allocation; and central issue prices being frozen for three years at Rs 3/2/1/kg for rice/wheat/coarse cereals respectively. HLC's examination of these issue reveals that 67 percent coverage of population is on much higher side, and should be brought down to around 40 percent, which will comfortably cover BPL families and some even above that; 5kg grain per person to priority households is actually making BPL households worse off, who used to get 7kg/person under the TPDS. So, HLC recommends that they be given 7kg/person. On central issue prices, HLC recommends while Antyodya households can be given grains at Rs 3/2/1/kg for the time being, but pricing for priority households must be linked to MSP, say 50 percent of MSP. Else, HLC feels that this NFSA will put undue financial burden on the exchequer, and investments in agriculture and food space may suffer. HLC would recommend greater investments in agriculture in stabilizing production and building efficient value chains to help the poor as well as farmers. HLC recommends that targeted beneficiaries under NFSA or TPDS are given 6 months ration immediately after the procurement season ends. This will save the consumers from various hassles of monthly arrivals at FPS and also save on the storage costs of agencies. Consumers can be given well designed bins at highly subsidized rates to keep the rations safely in their homes. HLC recommends gradual introduction of cash transfers in PDS, starting with large cities with more than 1 million population; extending it to grain surplus states, and then giving option to deficit states to opt for cash or physical grain distribution. This will be much more cost effective way to help the poor, without much distortion in the production basket, and in line with best international practices. HLC's calculations reveal that it can save the exchequer more than Rs 30,000 crores annually, and still giving better deal to consumers. Cash transfers can be indexed with overall price level to protect the amount of real income transfers, given in the name of lady of the house, and routed through Prime Minister's Jan-Dhan Yojana (PMJDY) and dovetailing Aadhaar and Unique Identification (UID) number. This will empower the consumers, plug high leakages in PDS, save resources, and it can be rolled out over the next 2-3 years. On stocking and movement related issues:HLC recommends that FCI should outsource its stocking operations to various agencies such as Central Warehousing Corporation, State Warehousing Corporation, Private Sector under Private Entrepreneur Guarantee (PEG) scheme, and even state governments that are building silos through private sector on state lands (as in Madhya Pradesh). It should be done on competitive bidding basis, inviting various stakeholders and creating competition to bring down costs of storage. India needs more bulk handling facilities than it currently has. Many of FCI's old conventional storages that have existed for long number of years can be converted to silos with the help of private sector and other stocking agencies. Better mechanization is needed in all silos as well as conventional storages.Covered and plinth (CAP) storage should be gradually phased out with no grain stocks remaining in CAP for more than 3 months. Silo bag technology and conventional storages where ever possible should replace CAP. Movement of grains needs to be gradually containerized which will help reduce transit losses, and have faster turn-around-time by having more mechanized facilities at railway sidings. HLC recommends total end to end computerization of the entire food management system, starting from procurement from farmers, to stocking, movement and finally distribution through TPDS. It can be done on real time basis, and some states have done a commendable job on computerizing the procurement operations. But its dovetailing with movement and distribution in TPDS has been a weak link, and that is where much of the diversions take place.

For that reason, controlling corruption has been a key indicator. Good governance is a keystone of government.

Vigilance Committees (VCs) have been in existence since the inception of the rationing system. The Central Government has been requesting the State Governments from time to time to activate these Committees for monitoring of PDS and reconstitute them, if not done so, by associating members from amongst the card holders and consumer activists as well as Members of Parliament. In the Model Citizens’ Charter, issued in November, 1997, constitution of VCs by the State Governments at the level of Panchayat /Ward, Taluk, District and State/UT was emphasised. In the guidelines issued in June 1999 for the Involvement of the Panchayati Raj Institutions in the implementation of TPDS, it was mentioned that the Gram Panchayat/Gram Sabha should be encouraged to form FPS committees. The main functions of VCs are to ensure smooth functioning of PDS and redressal of problems related with it. The Government has also issued instructions to States/UTs to constitute VCs at FPS/Panchayat, Block, District and the State/UT level drawing members from the Government, social organisations, consumer organization and local bodies to periodically review the functioning of the schemes/FPS under PDS. Instructions have also been issued to all the States/UTs to involve Sarpanch, Pradhan, Pramukh, and Food Minister/Food Secretaries as the Chairmen of the VCs at village/FPS, block, districts and State level respectively. Despite the instructions taken up with the States from time to time, it is still felt that lot of work needs to be done by the States for making the VCs effective on ground to address the problems in the system.

The PDS (C) Order, 2001 notified on 31.08.2001 provides for the holding of the meeting of the VCs at the State, District, Block and FPS level by the State Government at least on quarterly basis. The Date and periodicity of the meeting to be notified by the State Governments.

In order to further strengthen the provisions of the VCs, the setting of the Committees has been brought under the provisions of the National Food Security Act, 2013. The provisions have been more elaborated in the new TPDS (Control) Order, 2015 notified on 20.03.2015.

The Targeted Public Distribution System (Control) Order, 2015 has been notified on 20.03.2015 in supersession of the PDS (C) Order, 2001 under section 3 of the Essential Commodities Act, 1955 and in consonance with the NFSA, 2013. The TPDS (C) Order, 2015 prescribes various provisions on the VCs for supervision and monitoring of the TPDS by the State Government.

Manjunatha Prasad BBMP Commissioner has created unnecessary lawlessness and confusion and unwarranted dispute.

“Under BBMP Commissioner, there is complete lawlessness right under his nose”. This is how a Mr Narsimha Elected President of “BBMP Poura Karmikara and Arogya Gangman Gala Sangaha” described the prevailing atmosphere in the BBMP, when commissioner Manjunatha Prasad reverses his order of conducting election to “BBMP Poura Karmikara and Arogya Gangman Gala Sangaha” after declaring the election schedule BBMP commissioner had not read amendments and has not read the UDD Circulars and orders, in respect of trade Unions. “Formation of Trade Unions in BBMP Permitted by UDD Order No UDD 49 MNY 2007 Dated 30-03-2010” whereas legal cell of BBMP gave illegal advice to then BBMP Commissioner .

EARN MORE “MONEY” BY CREATING “STUNNING VIDEOS” CUT, SLICE, AND EDIT ANY VIDEO WITH OPENSHOT VIDEO EDITOR
by Admin User - Wednesday, 13 September 2017, 12:15 AM
 

By : M.S.Yatnatti: Editor and Video Journalist Bengaluru : Open Shot is a free, simple-to-use, feature-rich video editor for Linux Windows and Mac. The brainchild of programmer Jonathan Thomas, OpenShot has garnered a large and enthusiastic following for many reasons, one being Thomas’s responsiveness to user feedback. To quickly see the best uses of OpenShot, check out the beautifully created videos using open shot. “In short OpenShot is: 1. Easy to use. 2. Can work with HD video smoothly 3. Can change video colouring/lighting, among other things 4. Gives users the ability to add effects. 5. Can render video at a very high speed (especially when compared to Windows editing programs). This really makes OpenShot a powerful addition to the Linux community.” Help manuals for OpenShot are available in several languages – and each includes a simple "Learn OpenShot in 5 Minutes" section. When video production is required of all students, it makes sense to steer students towards an easy-to-use, yet powerful free video editor. OpenShot is that video editor. OpenShot is, quite simply, a cross-platform, free software (GPL licensed) video editing package. It’s available for Linux and, according to their download page, for Windows and Mac, as well.Interestingly, OpenShot is distributed via appimage. That means they provide a single binary that can be run on just about any modern Linux distribution. So, what makes OpenShot 2.3 so ridiculously awesome?.To start with, the new transformation tool is absolutely stupendous. It allows you to easily add some very cool animations to your videos. Simply drop an item (say, an image of your kid playing hockey) on the timeline. Select a spot on the timeline to start the animation, select Transform, then adjust the image however you want in a WYSIWYG way. Drag it around. Resize/reshape it. Then move to the next spot on the timeline that you want the image to do something else and repeat. OpenShot will do the hard work of calculating and rendering all of the frames in between those two points for you. The result is a nice smooth animation put together in just a few minutes. Not only is it easy, but the performance was quite peppy. This new version also adds to create titles for your videos. This is, hands down, the most fun title editor . Some of the built-in templates are a ton of fun and look absolutely fantastic.

Today even inexpensive cell phones offer 4K resolution for video recording capability .Many News channels have dumped big camera setups for mobile phone journalism. Many news channels are using YouTube have YouTube channels. Now, anyone with a cell phone is both a content creator as well as a content distributor while of course also continuing to be a content consumer. Great opportunity available for talented persons. Making videos for YouTube and then earning money is one of the possibility and becoming successful with little extra efforts. Many youngsters today are making up their career goals to upload more than one video a week and build a channel and a personal brand. It is a smart move despite the risks, and that video and social media marketing skills are sought after these days. “Even if it doesn’t work very well, they would have built either a personal brand by then or enough skill set to be easily hired by marketing agencies or marketing functions of different organizations . The main way that people make money through YouTube is through advertising revenue from Google AdSense. You earn money for the amount of views and ad clicks that your videos get.You need to create good content in order to get views and make money. A lot of people start out by vlogging or filming themselves playing video games.When a video is posted to YouTube, but gets zero views, does it even exist? This is the eternal question for any video marketer. With 300 hours of video uploaded to the platform every single minute, it can be tough for any YouTubers who are trying to get their message out.You’ve heard it over and over again—to the point where you’re seeing a ‘Skip Ad’ button in your dreams—but 2017 is the year of video. Promoting your YouTube channel is a fine art, and one that can be the difference between having your content acknowledged with crickets or with a standing ovation.The following guide will help you Promote your YouTube channel in a way that will make sure your videos stand out from the crowd. YouTube doesn't pay for the number of views you get on your video. YouTube pays you on the number of people who've clicked or watched an ad. This is called 'Engagement' with the ad.Advertisers have two models based on which they choose the advertisement.a) Cost per View (CPV)b) Cost per Click (CPC)a) In CPV, the advertiser pays for the number of times the ad has been viewed. It doesn't matter if a viewer clicks on the advertisement, they pay only for the views. b) In CPC, the advertiser pays for the number of clicks. So the advertiser is charged only when someone clicks on the advertisement.

Creating Awesome Videos: This is what you should focus on first. Learn how to use your tools, the hardware and software.Commit yourself to improving the quality of your videos each time you create one. Your first video may suck.But keep trying on YouTube. Keep on practicing and improve . Your videos may not be perfect but each video gets better as you keep working .Focus on making sure you take care of the aspects that will determine if a person continues watching your videos, thumbs up, comment and subscribe to your channel in respect of Sound,Light,Resolution,Length,Clarity and Those are some of the key aspects to focus on. Improve in each area and your videos will get better, fast. Nobody wants to view and share a video with boring content or too out-dated content. So, first of all one of your best bets is to create some topic content about something that is big right now. Make it more persuasive, informative and shareable. Focus on what the customer want to listen.The better the content the more likely it is that other popular websites will share it. Additionally, staying on top of trends while creating your video is another helpful strategy, if people are searching for it, they might just find you.
