ALL PAN CARDS NOT LINKED TO AADHAAR CARD WILL BE CANCELLED QUOTE AADHAAR NUMBER MANDATORY FOR FILING I-T RETURNS, APPLYING FOR PAN CARD
by Admin User - Friday, 24 March 2017, 08:11 AM
 

By: M.S.Yatnatti: Editor and Video Journalist Bangalore: "Every person who has been allotted permanent account number as on the day 1st of July 2017, and who is eligible to obtain Aadhaar number, shall intimate his Aadhaar number to such authority in such form and manner as may be prescribed, on or before a date to be in notified by the Central Government in the Official Gazette," notes the amendments inserted in the Finance Bill. "Provided that in case of failure to intimate the Aadhaar number, the permanent account number (PAN) allotted to the person shall be deemed to be invalid and the other provisions of this Act shall apply, as if the person had not applied for allotment of permanent account number."Interestingly, the government move comes despite of the Supreme Court ruling that Aadhaar number can be used only for providing welfare services and not as in ID tool or a requirement for general services.It is not clear why the government wants to link all PAN cards to the Aadhaar card and what it hopes to achieve by making Aadhaar a mandatory requirement for filing income tax returns. But from the proposed amendments it seems that Aadhaar number will soon render the PAN number useless and in future government may just use Aadhaar number in all the places where currently the PAN card is required. At the same time, with Aadhaar card connected to the PAN card, and effectively with bank accounts, government will be able to track the income and expenditures of millions of Indians each time there is a transaction that involves a bank account.

You must have already reportedly heard that from this year filling of income tax returns will require you to your Aadhaar number. In case you don't have the Aadhaar card and you wish to pay taxes, you have to get one now. But the Aadhaar doesn't just stop at the income tax. The Aadhaar number will also have to be linked to the PAN (permanent account number) card or else the PAN card will be cancelled.The new rule is part of the proposed amendments in the new Finance Bill, which is certain to be passed. The proposed rules note that linking of Aadhaar card with PAN card will be mandatory from July 1. Aadhaar has been gaining ground with several financial transactions being linked to it. Work is already in progress of all bank accounts being linked to Aadhaar number.Recently, the I-T department had announced a mobile app for paying taxes and tracking of refunds. It had also said it was considering issuing PANs on real time basis using Aadhaar biometric.Sources said the decision to link Aadhaar to a bank account and to make it necessary for filing Income Tax returns was taken last year.The Government aims at making financial transactions more transparent by linking Aadhaar to bank accounts, Income Tax returns and PAN cards.The government is working on linking all bank accounts to Aadhaar numbers. And from April 1 onwards, Aadhaar IDs will be a pre-requisite for opening an Employee Provident Fund account that helps you collate a pension.The Aadhaar program was introduced by the previous UPA government in 2009. By offering instantaneous checking of a person's credentials, it aims at making it much easier to open a bank account, or for legitimate beneficiaries to receive subsidies in welfare reform schemes.

Loan tenure: The tenure of a loan is the number of years or months the loan has been borrowed for. nterest rate: This is In the rate of interest charged for the money bor rowed. In case of a floating rate loan, this may keep varying through its tenure.Generally, higher the loan amount, higher will be the EMIs. Further, higher the interest rate, higher will be the EMIs. Shorter the loan tenure, higher will be the EMIs.On the other hand, the EMIs will be lower in case of a lesser loan amount, lower interest rate or in case the loan tenure is longer. While the EMIs will come down if you increase the tenure of the loan, the catch is that the total amount of interest payable over the loan tenure will be higher.In case of a floating rate loan, the interest rate will vary based on the marginal cost of funds based lending rate (MCLR) of the bank. Hence, the EMIs also change whenever there is a change in the MCLR effected by the bank. As against this, in case of a fixed rate loan, the EMIs remain constant during the period when the rate is fixed.

Reportedly the tenure is a major factor you need to decide on while availing a home loan. It has an impact on the total amount of interest you pay for the loan. A loan tenure is the duration of the loan.A home loan is generally taken for a long term. The EMI amount will depend on the tenure of the loan and loan amount.As a home loan is mostly for a long tenure, it is very important to be realistic and practical while choosing the loan amount and tenure. This is despite the fact that a bank may be willing to provide you a higher loan amount or a lower interest rate. The decision has to be based on your requirements, resources, repayment capacity and ability to service the loan through the tenure. A longer tenure will mean a lower EMI, which can be serviced more easily.A longer home loan tenure increases the cost of borrowing as the interest has to be paid over a longer time period. You have to consider your financial sources and needs over a few years at least, while deciding on the loan's tenure.You should make a cashflow statement, covering likely receipts and payments over the next few years. This should include the estimated increase in income over the years self and spouse. Also, it should capture the funds requirements over the next few years children's education, marriage, insurance, anticipated medical expenses, investments and of course some buffer to meet contingencies.One way to decide on the loan amount and tenure is with a reverse calculation. Make a cashflow statement for the next few years covering likely receipts and expenditures. Find out the surplus you have each month in a year. Now, the EMI has to be paid from this surplus amount. Using the EMI as the base, you can then calculate backwards to find out how much loan you should ideally borrow.This will also give you a good idea on the home loan repayment you can easily service with your present and likely resources.If you have a monthly income of Rs 1 lakh and expenses of Rs 60,000, you have a disposable income of Rs 40,000. Around 5070 percent of this can be used to pay the EMIs. So, you can pay up to Rs 28,000 as EMIs. Now with EMI, the interest rate and tenure, you can compute the loan amount. So, for 11 percent interest and loan tenure of 10 years, with the EMI of Rs 28,000, the loan amount will come to Rs 20 lakhs approximately. If the tenure is increased to 20 years, the loan amount will be Rs 27 lakhs. Generally, the EMI should not be more than 40 percent of your monthly income.As the loan tenure increases, the EMI amount comes down. This increases the eligibility for the home loan. As there is no prepayment penalty charge, you can prepay on the loan in future, once your income increases. So, initially, you should opt for a longer tenure loan so that you can service it easily. Although a shorter tenure loan will reduce the interest burden, it will also increase the risk of being unable to pay timely instalments.Age is also an important factor. The maximum tenure is restricted by your age at the end of the tenure. Normally, banks lend only up to 60 years of age. Thus, a 50-year-old person cannot get a 30year loan as it will be long past retirement by then.One will be eligible only for a 10-year loan at 50 years of age.The right tenure is such that the borrower can pay the EMIs without ever defaulting. The EMI calculated on the basis of the chosen tenure must have some leverage to be enhanced in case the interest rates go up in the future.

EMI stands for 'equated monthly instalment'. A home loan is re paid through EMIs. EMIs are set at the inception of the loan and are expected to be equal every month. However, there are certain circumstances in which it can change.The EMI depends on the loan amount, the interest rate and the tenure of the loan. Based on these factors, you can easily compute your EMI amount. EMI payments include contributions towards both the principal and interest components of the loan amount. In the initial years, the interest component constitutes a major portion of the EMI amount. During the later years of a loan tenure, the portion of the interest compo nent reduces and that of the principal component increases.The EMI amount you need to pay on your home loan depends on: Loan amount: This means the total amount of money you have borrowed.

How you can reduce your EMIs :This will depend on the attendant factors. In case you make a part prepayment of some amount of the principal component, it will reduce your outstanding loan amount. This will lead to a reduction in your EMIs. Alternatively, you can opt to keep the EMIs the same, but reduce the loan tenure. This will also reduce the total interest payable over the tenure. If you keep the EMIs low initially, the loan tenure will have to be stretched.This will increase your total interest cost.In case of a floating interest rate loan, you can take advantage of a reduction in the interest rate. In case the interest rate goes down, your EMIs can still remain the same. However, by virtue of the reduction in the interest rate, the tenure of your loan will be reduced you can keep the EMIs the same, but reduce the tenure. This will also make you debtfree earlier.

Citizens can force every PA to create information every day strictly as per the system and procedure as per listed Acts and rules regulations listed under 4(1) (a) (b) (c) every day and that can be cross cheeked by applicant by asking reasons under 4(1) (d) by the affected person and copy of the same can be given to any applicant under 2( f) of RTI Act .Promote transparency and accountability in the working of every public authority. Policy on Prevention, Detection, and Remediation of Fraud and Corruption by government is must and a major element of good governance is the control of corruption. For that reason, controlling corruption has been a key indicator. Good governance is a keystone of government. UPA government has given you RTI Act: Use It optimally :All opposition parties should use RTI optimally .Let they create booth wise RTI activists among their members or cadets and give them training and set of questions and gather that booth level information to perform better as opposition parties .Prime Minister should listen to opposition parties as they are voice of 66% voters. All responsible citizens should send RTI Question to each MP and each Minister and Prime Minister and get to know every day what they are doing and what they are performing and keep check on their performances and give them clear indication that India is awakened and want responsible Government which listens citizens.. All 70 MLAs and 543 MPs are public servants : After election are over all MLAs are public servants and they are MLA for all the constituency .All MLAs should chalk out their plans for development of their constituencies irrespective of who voted for them or who is not voted for them . THE RIGHT TO INFORMATION ACT, 2005 is an Act to provide for setting out the practical regime of right to information for citizens to secure access to information under the control of public authorities, in order to promote transparency and accountability in the working of every public authority.

Transform your classroom into a hub for digital learning and teaching with a device that turns monitors into fully functional computers—the Intel® Compute Stick.Teaching with proprietary software too costly and using open source software in an open access environment is less costly. To this end, the concept of the LiveCD versus a standard Microsoft Windows architecture as a desktop platform for general-purpose computing needs within a public access computer lab can be better option. To this end, the concept of the portable OS on USB a desktop platform for general-purpose computing needs within a public access computer lab can be better option. To this end, the concept of the Compu stick with portable OS which can directly connected to BIG TV Screen as black boarded in class room and each student on a desk top use live CD or portable OS on USB as a desktop platform for general-purpose computing needs within a public access computer lab will be explored.

Any teacher or student Carry Any Operating System or portable apps (compendium of OSS) in his Pocket CD DVD Portable Lab on Stick and Portable OS with Application on compu stick according to his subject. “Technology Assisted Learning Projects (TALP) are being introduced .Incorporate technology into teaching and Technology could not replace a teacher totally. “Technology and teaching must go hand in hand.

KPNUT will give on line training on all these unlimited technologies with certifications and recruitment and placements service. It’s not always necessary to reserve a special computer lab when you want to integrate computer activities into your course. Traditional computer labs have fixed seating and aren’t well-suited to group work or discussion; students are hidden behind large screens.

KPNUT is planning to bring one by one as per request of educational institution requirements several thousand available open source software’s Top apps and portable OS in 2017 that help business education training to grow .KPN shall provide all the available technology for user thousands of apps and hundreds of Linux Distributions .Why do you need portable apps? Well, we're usually faced with a space crunch on our hard drives due to the huge file sizes that result from 4 GB and Full HD videos, 20MP photos, lossless audio rips, graphic-heavy games, and the sheer amount of data we store on our PCs. Also, it doesn't make sense to install each and every software ­ most of which we might use occasionally ­ on our already packed computers. In such cases, all you need to do is use a 16GB pen drive and pack it with the myriad software that you need. Using these is as simple as plugging the USB stick into your machine, and clicking on the app to start. Besides, your `cleaner' computer will boot up faster, and you can also use these software on the go when your own PC is not at hand.If you travel frequently, or going to attend seminars or you are converting existing computer lab to your specific Lab or taking your class it can be frustrating to have to use a system that doesn’t have your favorite open source software already installed. Fortunately, many of the most popular open source applications come in portable versions that you can take with you on a USB thumb drive or other portable media. What makes an application portable? These apps can run from any portable device (a thumb drive, CD, DVD, portable hard drive or other device) without needing to be installed directly on the hard drive of the system you're using. They also don't leave behind any files on the host system, and they don't interfere with other software installed on that system. For this list, we've compiled some of the best portable open source applications available. Some of these were originally designed by the project owner to be portable. Others are open source applications that have been re-packaged for portability by a third party.

Reportedly Plagiarism is considered academic dishonesty and a breach of educational ethics. It is subject to sanctions like penalties, suspension, and even expulsion. Recently, cases of 'extreme plagiarism' have been identified in academia .Time is ripe .Educators need to adopt the technologies to impart education. Online education clubbed with outsourced Lab are the present and future of education .You agree or agree not to agree. This is a reality written on the walls on universities .Entire teaching and learning revolve around minds getting and sustaining their attention and interest holds the key to success in this tricky process. Teaching and learning can be tech enabled. Smartphone’s tablets desktops laptops computers have become class rooms laboratories and research centers and playgrounds and virtually become everything..Sakai software platform is one of a vibrant, international community that collaborates to create technology that enhances teaching, learning and research. Member organizations include large universities and small colleges, K-12 systems, hospitals, government organizations, research societies and political parties. In 2004, four leading U.S. universities, together with Jasig, the parent organization of the uPortal portal framework, began a collaboration to combine and synchronize their assorted learning software into a collection of integrated, open source tools. MHRD UGC association of Indian universities NAAC and all universities should conduct seminars and workshops to educate and train the University students to use latest technologies in research and bring out a common code conduct for all students of all Universities and all should support the University administration for taking stern actions on students violating university rules and code in respect of research . Research Students can Collect Organise Cite Sync Collaborate and Grab your research with a single click. Zotero is software that allows you to easily collect, manage, and save bibliographic information about the items you find on the Web. It also works with word processing programs to help you easily cite your sources as you write. The reference management is the most laborious task while preparing a research paper or thesis .The important point to be noted is that publishing a paper or article by using already published content without adding citations to the source is known as plagiarism which would lead to copyright infringements .In research and universities plagiarism is considered a series issue .A reference manager makes your life simpler by adding and removing the references swiftly. Samsung Smart School is one among the best : These mobile educational solutions enable students and teachers to benefit from a broad range of education-related information on their mobile device. They include up-to-date school information, access to crucial learning resources and real-time attendance and participation trackers, all of which serve to increase your students' engagement and performance.

Zotero is an amazing open source software tool that helps writers to manage the various references used in their research articles and presentations .Essentially it helps them to add these references in their articles with minimal drudgery but with surgical precision. Reference management software, citation management software or personal bibliographic management software is software for scholars and authors to use for recording and utilising bibliographic citations (references). Once a citation has been recorded, it can be used time and again in generating bibliographies, such as lists of references in scholarly books, articles and essays. The development of reference management packages has been driven by the rapid expansion of scientific literature. These software packages normally consist of a database in which full bibliographic references can be entered, plus a system for generating selective lists of articles in the different formats required by publishers and scholarly journals. Modern reference management packages can usually be integrated with word processors so that a reference list in the appropriate format is produced automatically as an article is written, reducing the risk that a cited source is not included in the reference list. They will also have a facility for importing the details of publications from bibliographic databases. Reference management software does not do the same job as a bibliographic database, which tries to list all articles published in a particular discipline or group of disciplines; examples are those provided by Ovid Technologies (e.g. Medline), the Institute for Scientific Information (e.g. Web of Knowledge) or mono disciplinary learned societies e.g. the American Psychological Association (PsysINFO)). These databases are large and have to be housed on major server installations. Reference management software collects a much smaller database, of the publications that have been used or are likely to be used by a particular author or group, and such a database can easily be housed on an individual's personal computer. Apart from managing references, most reference management software also enables users to search references from online libraries. These online libraries are usually based on Z39.50 public protocol. Users just need to specify the IP address, database name and keywords to start a Z39.50 search. It is quicker and more efficient than a web browser. However, Z39.50 is a little out of date. Some popular scientific websites, such as Google Scholar, IEEE Xpl Which one is the best reference management software? That’s a question any student or researcher should think about quite carefully, because choosing the best reference manager may save lots of time and increase the quality of your work significantly. So, which reference manager is best? Zotero? Mendeley? Docear? …? The answer is: “It depends”, because different people have different needs.

Engineering research demands a computation platform that is free from patents and it is not plagued by proprietary rules. It is all about innovation. Engineering complex systems and making significant contributions to any particular field of research is the key motive to any researcher. Budding researchers should build on existing research platforms without ambiguity. In this context, it is necessary to recognize the importance of open source software and GNU general public licence. The software tools for research include Ubuntu-14.04-LTS, which is a Debian distribution built on OS Linux-3.19.0-61-generic kernel. The processor used is Intel N3540, which is a low wattage (TDS) processor with a decent clock frequency. The processor gives considerable battery backup and performance. The other handy open source software tools are:Linux:Linux kernel 0.01 was released by Linus Torvalds in 1991. He wrote it in C programming language with a GCC compiler. It had 10,239 lines of code then. Now, it has more than 2 billion lines of code. An estimated 3 billion Android phones with the Linux kernel were sold in 2014. Almost all electronic devices support this code. Supercomputers and servers are run on Linux. They are so stable that upgrades are possible without even shutting them down. In 2005, Linus Torvalds said, “Linux is evolution, not intelligent design’. Hence, this portable module will keep on upgrading into new variants and a feature rich kernel, with the GNU general public license and keeping the source code intact. LaTex:In research, publication is a must in order to validate the work. With LaTex, you can write a journal or conference paper without worrying about its alignment. LaTex is capable of aligning books, your thesis or even your presentation slides. Learning LaTex can be a challenge, but a graphical user interface (GUI) like Tex Live can be used for easy learning. The file system in LaTex is open source. After installation, you can check your software package version in your computer by typing the following command in command line Interface (CLI or terminal).

“UGC SANCTIONED MINIMUM POSTS NOT FILLED FINDS CUK ACADEMIC AND ADMINISTRATIVE AUDIT REPORT”
by Admin User - Tuesday, 21 March 2017, 02:03 PM
 

By: M.S.Yatnatti: Editor and Video Journalist Bangalore: President of India, Shri Pranab Mukherjee at the second Annual Convocation of the Central University of Karnataka had said that “A developing country like India needs innovative solutions to issues in renewable energy, climate change, drinking water, sanitation and urbanization. It is incumbent on our universities to align their research priorities with these challenges. Our universities have to be the breeding grounds for creative pursuits and cutting-edge technology. They have to inculcate in their students a scientific temper and a spirit of inquiry. Research promotion at the under-graduate level could facilitate this objective. This land carries with it a legacy of diverse educational experiments and experiences. It is the seat of two universities in the past – Anubhava Mantapa of Basavanna and Mahmud Gawan’s Madrsa – both of which attracted intellectuals from across the country and abroad. It is also worth mentioning about Sannati, an ancient Buddhist centre of learning, and Nagavi Ghatikasthan. It is incumbent on the contemporary educational institutions in the state to take forward this tradition of knowledge. In this, I see a prominent role for the Central University of Karnataka. Being a new university, it can set its educational priorities to achieve the lofty ideals set by the earlier seers and educationists. A good education system is one that can help develop social responsiveness in students. Ways should be devised to integrate student engagement with society in the academic framework. For instance, higher level students can be assigned to teach in government schools located nearby. It will help address the existing shortage of teachers at primary and secondary levels and also create a desire in them to enter the teaching profession. Students can also be deployed to undertake community-based projects. They can identify problems and involve themselves in research to find solutions. Measures like these would mould students into confident and purposeful human beings, who can through their conviction and own example inspire others.”

Central government is giving money Central University of Karnataka (CUK) but un-utilized amount reportedly is more than utilized money .Dr Deene is appointed as Assistant professor but he is also made co-ordinator of SC ST Cell and he is also full time internal auditor of Central University of Karnataka (CUK).One man three post .

The UGC sanctioned 140 faculty positions for Central University of Karnataka (CUK) but CUK reportedly has filled only 40 positions. This data is officially available at UGC Website .If this position exists in a private college the college is de-recognized by University and UGC then why Dr Sandhu and NAAC and MHRD is failed to censure the Central University of Karnataka (CUK). with this kind of faculty shortages how can ANY BODY dream of making it world-class Central University.N.R. Shetty, Chancellor of the Central University of Karnataka (CUK), Kalaburagi, called upon the teaching and non-teaching staff to work together to make the university one among the top performing institutions in the world. He was delivering the Foundation Day lecture at the university in Kadaganchi, off Aland Road, recently.Babasaheb Bhimrao Ambedkar University (BBAU) is a Central University in Lucknow 226025 Accredited 'A' Grade by NAAC in 2015,in Uttar Pradesh. The university is named after Babasaheb Bhimrao Ambedkar, the architect of the Indian Constitution. Even then Karnataka state higher education Minister has reportedly proposed that Central University of Karnataka (CUK) be named after Babasaheb Bhimrao Ambedkar despite already a central university in UP is already named after Babasaheb Bhimrao Ambedkar out 46 central universities .Public is demanding that Central University of Karnataka (CUK) be named after saint Basaweshwara.I have asked PIO CUK to provide me the information and reasons under section 4(I) RTI Act for not adopting UGC (Credit Framework for Online Learning Courses through SWAYAM) Regulation, 2016 (https://swayam.gov.in/Home) for students of CUK and providing high quality 4 G WIFI in campus free of cost and providing free laptops to SC ST and EWS students in campus as The Union Minister for Finance and Corporate Affairs, Shri Arun Jaitley while presenting the General Budget 2017-18 in Parliament reportedly said that the Government proposes to leverage information technology and launch SWAYAM Platform with at least 350 online courses. In his Budget Speech, the Finance Minister said this will enable students to virtually attend the courses taught by the best faculty; access high quality reading resources, participate in discussion forums; take tests and earn academic grades. Access to SWAYAM would be widened by linkage with DTH channels, dedicated to education. This information and reasons need to be provided to me as per Guide on RTI to Information Act 2005 published by the Government of India Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances & Pensions Department of Personnel & Training (available here :http://rti.gov.in/RTICorner/Guideonrti.pdf) on page 12 and Para 9, following is stated: Providing Reasons for Decisions: The public authorities take various administrative and quasi-judicial decisions which affect the interests of certain persons. It is mandatory for the concerned public authority to provide reasons for such decisions to the affected persons. It may be done by using appropriate mode of communication .Attention is also invited towards the thread 'affected person ' under rti act.In fact, it can be said that "Affected" refers back to an action. The "Affected Persons" are the ones who are affected by that action. The reasons need to be given to affected person and copy of that can be given to me under 2 f of RTI Act. The CUK office is THE PUBLIC AUTHORITY under obligation to provide information “PUBLICLY” under section 4(1) (a) (b) (c) (d).

Public has waited more than enough thinking that it will withdraw Deene Circular and issue a comprehensive circular encompassing ten portraits and solve the problem. But this is not happening .Then a PIL will be filed against the CUK for violating section 7 of CUK Act . The demand is made from several quarters that Central University of Karnataka (CUK) AT Kalburgi should take all sections of society along and issue a Fresh circular for portraits for inclusion of the incumbent President, Swami Vivekananda , Mahatma Gandhi, Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru, great Sufi saint Khwaja Bande Nawaz. , saint Basaweshwara , Dr , B.R. Ambedkar and incumbent Vice Chancellor and Pro Vice Chancellor and Chancellor in CUK .Central University of Karnataka (CUK) AT Kalburgi cannot ill offer to display only one portrait of one National leader as proposed and implemented by Dr Deene of CUK leaving all others .Protocol of Portrait Display is very important. Dr Deene Circular violates section 7 of Central University Act as University is open to all caste, creed, race or class and cannot force one belief on others.University cannot ill offer to display only one portrait of one leader as proposed leaving all others. An illegal circular was issued by Dr Deene on authorization of VC which is about only one portrait of one national leader as proposed and leaving all others as University has to take along all sections of society creed and religion and cannot ill offered to display only one portrait of one leader as proposed leaving all others so this Circular violates section 7 of Central University Act as University is open to all caste, creed, race or class and cannot force one belief on others. Protocol of Portrait Display is very important. Diversity in language, culture, belief, tradition, knowledge-systems and way of life, which mark the inclusive secular character of this country and make it unique in the whole world, has to be reflected in the University curricula and in all its academic and research activities including display of portraits. University cannot ill offer to display only one portrait of one leader as proposed leaving all others. A portrait is a painting, photograph, sculpture, or other artistic representation of a person, in which the face and its expression is predominant. The intent is to display the likeness, personality, and even the mood of the person. For this reason, in photography a portrait is generally not a snapshot, but a composed image of a person in a still position. A portrait often shows a person looking directly at the painter or photographer, in order to most successfully engage the subject with the viewer.The doorway to South India, Kalburgi is a miraculous gift the land of Karnataka embraces. Drawing the quality of 'Unity in Diversity' from the homeland country India, Kalburgi carries the legacy of rich cultural heritage imbibed in its fine arts, music and dance forms, people and cuisines. The attribute of being a cosmopolitan city, Kalburgi mirrors confluence of all the diverse cultures nourishing within its boundaries. The residents of the city living in sheer harmony with each other confirm that the varied culture exists, but not at the cost of peace and tranquility of Kalburgi. The festivals colour Kalburgi in the fun and fervour of the celebrations. A number of monuments silently express the glorious history of the city they witnessed, the traditional art forms they preserved and continued to keep it alive. The spirit of Kalburgi, vibrant culture and reminiscent traditions all make the city wonderful and tremendously important as a part of Indian heritage.The University is well aware of the challenges of the contemporary world in establishing a quality educational institution. It is heartening that the system is committed to bring all the required changes to achieve this goal. It is indeed a pleasure to note that the University is advancing significantly in terms of academic activities, infrastructural facilities, and performance of its academia. The Central University of Karnataka (CUK) has been established by an Act of the Parliament (No. 3 of 2009) at Kalaburagi, Karnataka. It is one of the 16 new Central Universities established by the Government of India during the UGC XI Plan Period to address to the concerns of ‘equity and access’ and to increase the access to quality higher education by people in less educationally developed districts which have a Graduate Enrolment Ratio of less than the national average of 11%. .The CUK, with its territorial jurisdiction all over Karnataka has been initiated its activities from the academic year beginning August 2009 in keeping with the philosophy of achieving and maintaining the highest levels of academic excellence, sensitivity to equity and access in enrolment and recruitment and emerging as a premier national educational and research institution in the country. The University has 654 acres campus, situated near Kadaganchi village in the district of Kalaburagi, Karnataka State (30 km from Kalaburagi city towards Solapur). It is claimed that CUK is the first Central University to move to its permanent campus in a short time among the new ones. The main objective of the University is integrating the components of Teaching, Research, Innovation, Training and Skill Development (TRI-TSD) with an aspiration to excel in dual degree, post graduate and doctoral programs. The University offers the programs in following five dominant areas: Arts, Humanities, Management, Sciences, and Engineering. Currently the University is running 16 Departments spread in 8 Schools and 1 Centre, and offering 9 Dual degree programs, 15 Master degree programs, 16 Research (PhD) programs.Objectives of The Central University of Karnataka (CUK) : To disseminate and advance knowledge by providing instructional and research facilities in such branches of learning as it may deem fit.To make special provisions for integrated courses in humanities, social sciences, science and technology in its educational programmes. To take appropriate measures for promoting innovations in teaching-learning process and inter- disciplinary studies and research. To educate and train manpower for the development of the country. To establish linkages with industries for the promotion of science and technology; and to pay special attention to the improvement of the social and economic conditions and welfare of the people, their intellectual, academic and cultural development.. Kalaburagi is 623 km north of the state capital of Bengaluru and 200 km from Hyderabad. Although initially part of Hyderabad State, the city is the administrative headquarters of the district. In Kannada kala means stones, buragi means land thus the name kalaburgi - land of stones. Kalaburagi is a historic place being the origin of the social reformist movement of the great 12th century saint Basaweshwara and also the seat of the great Sufi saint Khwaja Bande Nawaz. The university identifies itself with these universal symbols of humanism and harmony who were also responsible for the general trend of education in the sense of enlightenment and upliftment of the masses. These ideas have found expression through the famous and old symbol of the ‘Tree of Life’ which is the basic motif for the university logo. The figurine at the bottom, representing the scholar, is symbolic of life reaching in all its expansiveness and leading to knowledge and enlightenment. Kalaburagi district is situated in northern Karnataka between 76°.04' and 77°.42 east longitude, and 17°.12' and 17°.46' north latitude, covering an area of 10,951 km².

RESEARCHERS EXCELLENCE IN TECHNOLOGY THAT ENHANCES TEACHING, LEARNING AND RESEARCH PLAGIARISM IS ACADEMIC DISHONESTY
by Admin User - Monday, 20 March 2017, 11:59 PM
 

By : M.S.Yatnatti: Editor and Video Journalist Bangaluru : Reportedly Plagiarism is considered academic dishonesty and a breach of educational ethics. It is subject to sanctions like penalties, suspension, and even expulsion. Recently, cases of 'extreme plagiarism' have been identified in academia .Time is ripe .Educators need to adopt the technologies to impart education. Online education clubbed with outsourced Lab are the present and future of education .You agree or agree not to agree. This is a reality written on the walls on universities .Entire teaching and learning revolve around minds getting and sustaining their attention and interest holds the key to success in this tricky process. Teaching and learning can be tech enabled. Smartphone’s tablets desktops laptops computers have become class rooms laboratories and research centers and playgrounds and virtually become everything..Sakai software platform is one of a vibrant, international community that collaborates to create technology that enhances teaching, learning and research. Member organizations include large universities and small colleges, K-12 systems, hospitals, government organizations, research societies and political parties. In 2004, four leading U.S. universities, together with Jasig, the parent organization of the uPortal portal framework, began a collaboration to combine and synchronize their assorted learning software into a collection of integrated, open source tools. MHRD UGC association of Indian universities NAAC and all universities should conduct seminars and workshops to educate and train the University students to use latest technologies in research and bring out a common code conduct for all students of all Universities and all should support the University administration for taking stern actions on students violating university rules and code in respect of research . Research Students can Collect Organise Cite Sync Collaborate and Grab your research with a single click. Zotero is software that allows you to easily collect, manage, and save bibliographic information about the items you find on the Web. It also works with word processing programs to help you easily cite your sources as you write. The reference management is the most laborious task while preparing a research paper or thesis .The important point to be noted is that publishing a paper or article by using already published content without adding citations to the source is known as plagiarism which would lead to copyright infringements .In research and universities plagiarism is considered a series issue .A reference manager makes your life simpler by adding and removing the references swiftly. Samsung Smart School is one among the best : These mobile educational solutions enable students and teachers to benefit from a broad range of education-related information on their mobile device. They include up-to-date school information, access to crucial learning resources and real-time attendance and participation trackers, all of which serve to increase your students' engagement and performance.

Zotero is an amazing open source software tool that helps writers to manage the various references used in their research articles and presentations .Essentially it helps them to add these references in their articles with minimal drudgery but with surgical precision. Reference management software, citation management software or personal bibliographic management software is software for scholars and authors to use for recording and utilising bibliographic citations (references). Once a citation has been recorded, it can be used time and again in generating bibliographies, such as lists of references in scholarly books, articles and essays. The development of reference management packages has been driven by the rapid expansion of scientific literature. These software packages normally consist of a database in which full bibliographic references can be entered, plus a system for generating selective lists of articles in the different formats required by publishers and scholarly journals. Modern reference management packages can usually be integrated with word processors so that a reference list in the appropriate format is produced automatically as an article is written, reducing the risk that a cited source is not included in the reference list. They will also have a facility for importing the details of publications from bibliographic databases. Reference management software does not do the same job as a bibliographic database, which tries to list all articles published in a particular discipline or group of disciplines; examples are those provided by Ovid Technologies (e.g. Medline), the Institute for Scientific Information (e.g. Web of Knowledge) or mono disciplinary learned societies e.g. the American Psychological Association (PsysINFO)). These databases are large and have to be housed on major server installations. Reference management software collects a much smaller database, of the publications that have been used or are likely to be used by a particular author or group, and such a database can easily be housed on an individual's personal computer. Apart from managing references, most reference management software also enables users to search references from online libraries. These online libraries are usually based on Z39.50 public protocol. Users just need to specify the IP address, database name and keywords to start a Z39.50 search. It is quicker and more efficient than a web browser. However, Z39.50 is a little out of date. Some popular scientific websites, such as Google Scholar, IEEE Xpl Which one is the best reference management software? That’s a question any student or researcher should think about quite carefully, because choosing the best reference manager may save lots of time and increase the quality of your work significantly. So, which reference manager is best? Zotero? Mendeley? Docear? …? The answer is: “It depends”, because different people have different needs.

Engineering research demands a computation platform that is free from patents and it is not plagued by proprietary rules. It is all about innovation. Engineering complex systems and making significant contributions to any particular field of research is the key motive to any researcher. Budding researchers should build on existing research platforms without ambiguity. In this context, it is necessary to recognize the importance of open source software and GNU general public licence. The software tools I currently use in my research include Ubuntu-14.04-LTS, which is a Debian distribution built on OS Linux-3.19.0-61-generic kernel. The processor used is Intel N3540, which is a low wattage (TDS) processor with a decent clock frequency. The processor gives considerable battery backup and performance. The other handy open source software tools are:Linux:Linux kernel 0.01 was released by Linus Torvalds in 1991. He wrote it in C programming language with a GCC compiler. It had 10,239 lines of code then. Now, it has more than 2 billion lines of code. An estimated 3 billion Android phones with the Linux kernel were sold in 2014. Almost all electronic devices support this code. Supercomputers and servers are run on Linux. They are so stable that upgrades are possible without even shutting them down. In 2005, Linus Torvalds said, “Linux is evolution, not intelligent design’. Hence, this portable module will keep on upgrading into new variants and a feature rich kernel, with the GNU general public license and keeping the source code intact.

EVOLVE TECH TO SOLVE “TRAFFIC CONGESTION PROBLEMS” AS IN 9 MONTHS 3.40 LAKHS TWO WHEELERS 90 K CARS ADDED TO BENAGALURU RAODS
by Admin User - Saturday, 18 March 2017, 02:16 PM
 

By: M.S.Yatnatti: Editor and Video Journalist Bengaluru : Evolve Technology to solve traffic congestion and implement ruthlessly as in the past nine months more than 4.33 lakhs new cars and two wheelers hace been added to the stream of traffic on city’s roads and correspondingly government cannot increase the width of Road. I have asked BMTC PIO provide me information and reasons under section 4(I) RTI Act for not implementing IT solutions with the aid and assistance of Banaglore IT industry to solve the tarrfic congestion problems..This information and reasons need to be provided to me as per Guide on RTI to Information Act 2005 published by the Government of India Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances & Pensions Department of Personnel & Training (available here :http://rti.gov.in/RTICorner/Guideonrti.pdf) on page 12 and Para 9, following is stated: Providing Reasons for Decisions: The public authorities take various administrative and quasi-judicial decisions which affect the interests of certain persons.

Bangalore, India’s third largest city and its answer to Silicon Valley, can take a considerable share of the credit for the nation’s economic revival in recent years. But city infrastructure has failed to keep pace with the rapid influx of residents to the state capital, and the result is an agonizing and perpetual state of gridlock. Involve IT industry to resolve traffic problems of Begaluru City as IT industry is biggest mass employer in the city. The annual cost of congestion to local IT and business process outsourcing (BPO) companies to be a staggering $6.5bn every year,BMTC Buses are themselves creators of traffic congestion and every bus need not come to majestic bus station or ITPL .Decentralize BMTC buses routes means divide them and you conquer the traffic woos .Less busses on roads less traffic congestion. The busses plying on ring roads should not come on other roads .The buses coming to ITPL should not go beyond Marthalli bridge or vice versa .With this the traffic congestion can be controlled .Easing Bangalore Traffic – is not a Rocket Science? .If someone wants to check who will win the race on ITPL roads : turtles or rabbits? It appears that the turtles (considering pedestrians as slow walkers) would win the race hands down, leaving the rabbits (motorists) still honking their horns. Bangalore traffic police must seek Solutions from citizens. Of course, this can be perceived as a good way to involve citizens in planning and solving their commutes .What is the leanest traffic period to travel to ITPL from Koramangala or Majestic or Jyanagar during working days? A) In the morning/ first half of the day B) During the second half (afternoon/ evening), travelling back. How the companies are recruiting its manpower or they are considering where their employees stay or how much far they stay from their working places. Whether employers provide accommodation to their staff within or nearby their working places .ITPL was made with the concept of work play live concept. All SEZ should have accommodation for their staffs within their respective areas .This will ease the traffic .If Infosys and all IT companies provide accommodation to its staff in nearby areas traffic woos will drastically come down in Bangalore.

Few persons travel almost every day to ITPL. Before 8:30 am, 10:30 - 12:30, 14:30 - 17:00, post 21:00 are your best bets, irrespective of route. Marathahalli can get very choked during peak hours (all times I have excluded above). Your best bet from Koramangala would be to hit the ORR, turn right at Marathahalli and follow the signs to ITPL/EPIP. Another option is to take Sarjapura Road until a 4 road intersection and turn left when you see a BPCL bunk on your right (after the intersection) - this will take you past Varthur Kere (Lake). Keep straight after the lake, past some super rumbler strips and turn left at the traffic light to reach ITPL.The need of the hour is to decongest traffic and the solution is to build an exclusive IT corridor for Whitefield, say experts. . It could be short term solution in the form differential office timings for all companies en-route ITPL from Majestic to K.R.Market or Jayanagar or long term It could be an elevated expressway similar to the one on Hosur Road or the Metro Rail line to reach Whitefield that could bring down traffic congestion to an extent. “Whitefield has only one access road that is the old Airport Road which is narrow. It goes straight into Whitefield without any entry or exit roads. The major arterial road that connects this stretch is the Marathahalli Outer Ring Road which connects Sarjapur Road on one side and K.R. Puram road on the other. Kundalahalli Main Road going towards Mahadevpura and ITPL Roads too contribute to the traffic mess,”.1. Driving towards ITPL, you need to cross Marathahalli junction before 8AM. A delay here means a delay at Kundalahalli junction and from Cosmos mall all the way till Graphite junction. If you need to go to ITPL directly, then you can head straight from Kundalahalli junction towards Varthur & then take left to Whitefield all the way till you get a signal, taking left at the signal will take you to ITPL. This route is slightly long but better than going through Brookfields.2. 11 AM till 3:30 PM is a good time even if you opt for Brookfields route 3. From ITPL, either start at 3:30PM or after 8:30PM.

5-6 lakh people use road daily :Anywhere between 5 and 6 lakh people move in and out of Whitefield IT zone every day. The IT belt has over 1,400 companies clustered around Marathahalli and Bellandur junctions near Sarjapura Road and Mahadevpura, ITPL and Hope Farm in Whitefield. On an average, each commuter spends at least 4 hours of travelling on choked Bengaluru roads, which is nearly two months a year! The city with a population of 10 million has 5 million vehicles, which is one vehicle for every two people.Yelahanka is the next Whitefield :Yelahanka is the next Whitefield in the making, warned V. Ravichandar as per reports . There is an IT boom in the area and hundreds of tech companies are sprouting in and around Yelahanka. It will face the same problems as Whitefield soon, he said. Though citizen-initiated groups, like Whitefield Rising, have been working hard to address civic issues, including the traffic menace, there has been no visible relief to commuters. “We can only persuade citizens to follow traffic rules, and highlight issues faced by road users to the authorities. But it is up to the authorities to intervene and make changes,” said Mr Pravir Bagrodia, a spokesperson for Whitefield Rising. “Accidents in and around Whitefield bring traffic to a grinding halt. But we can only highlight the cause of each accident and report it to the authorities,” he said.When the IT corridor was being built on the stretch, authorities should have taken due care to widen the road. Though the two-lane road was made into a four-lane one, it was never a solution. As this is the main stretch for vehicles coming from both west and south Bangalore via Marathahalli, it leads to chock-a-block traffic,Most affected junctions: Marathahalli, KR Puram underbridge, Hoodi, Kundalahalli, ITPL, Varthur, Hope Farm, Big Bazaar, Phoenix Mall, Vydehi Hospital and Anjaneya temple junctions were the most affected in the traffic jam.

THE CUK REGISTRAR & THE FIRST APPELLATE AUTHORITY SHOULD DISPOSE OFF THE APPEAL WITHIN 30 /45 DAYS OF RECEIPT OF THE APPEAL
by Admin User - Friday, 17 March 2017, 01:06 AM
 

By: M.S.Yatnatti: Editor and Video Journalist Bengaluru: The first appellate authority should dispose off the appeal within 30 days of receipt of the appeal. In some exceptional cases, the Appellate Authority may take 45 days for its disposal. However, in such cases , the Appellate Authority should record ,in writing ,the reasons for not deciding the appeal within 30 days.The CUK registrar notice dated 16-03-2017 is ignored as it is time barred under section 19(1) of RTI Act 2005 as CIC Appeal is filed .The CUK registrar requested to not threaten me as he is too late to conduct appellate authority hearing after 30 /45 days and his notices have no legal meaning and his threatened orders have no meaning in RTI Act.. We shall concentrate on CIC hearing and bring all CUK violations before CIC.Despite all violations of RTI Act I was interested to meet and resolve the issues on give respect and take respect policy. He is disrespecting me stating that he have pardoned me .For which crime he is pardoning I do not understand. As a public authority he need to follow Central University Act and other Acts as per and under section 4(1) (a) (b) (c) (d) RTI Act 2005 and you have no power to violate or issue any orders or circulars in Violation of section 7 of Central University Act. Dr deene circular as approved by VC and Registrar violates section 7 of Central University Act and based on this filing an POA Act on a fellow Assistant professor is violation of section 7 of Central University Act and approving this action by VC Registrar and Dr Deene and Mr Kamble Attracts penal provisions of CCA Rules 1957 as this is gross irregularity is committed and conducted in violations of provisions enumerated under section 4(1) (a) (b) (c) (d) RTI Act 2005 .I still respect and request CUK to resolve all problems within and under section 4(1) (a) (b) (c) (d) RTI Act 2005 of RTI Act and agree to compromise as suggested by elders.The Right to Information Act, 2005 already provides for imposition of penalty and recommendation of disciplinary action by the Central Information Commission/State Information Commission, as the case may be, against the Public Information Officer who has knowingly given incorrect, incomplete or misleading information under the RTI Act. The CIC/SICs have been imposing such penalties and also recommending disciplinary action against such Public Information Officers and directions issued to all the departments to fix responsibility and take action under the Government Employees Conduct Rules 1957. Giving Knowingly false information and forged information attracts IPC 464 Making a false document and IPC 468. Forgery for purpose of cheating.—Whoever commits forgery, intending that the 1[document or electronic record forged] shall be used for the purpose of cheating, shall be punished with imprisonment of either description for a term which may extend to seven years, and shall also be liable to fine. Punishment—Imprisonment for 7 years and fine—Cognizable—Non-bailable—-Triable by Magistrate of the first class—Non-compound­able. Section 166 of IPC : Public servant disobeying law, with intent to cause injury to any person : Whoever, being a public servant, knowingly disobeys any direction of the law as to the way in which he is to conduct himself as such public servant, intending to cause, or knowing it to be likely that he will, by such disobedience, cause injury to any person, shall be punished with simple imprisonment for a term which may extend to one year, or with fine, or with both. Most importantly in cited case law by Karira, the Commission themselves have invoked Section 166 of IPC(but have not initiated any action), which further strengthens this line of argument .The relevant extract from the said Order of the CIC is reproduced below;10. On perusal of this correspondence the Commission is constrained to conclude that Dr. S.K. Sarkar, Joint Secretary (AT&T) has obstructed, and Ms Anuradha Chagti and the DoPT as a public authority have knowingly violated and disobeyed the orders passed by the Commission knowing that the directions given by this Commission under Section 19(8) read with Section 19(7) are binding under the law. By their conduct, they have therefore committed offences punishable under Sections 166, 187 and 188 of the Indian Penal Code.Hence, if proved, the possibility of action under Section 166 of IPC cannot be ruled out.

RTI is a total problem solving mechanism and poor man’s tool to solve his problems and not just record providing tool RTI Act is not just 2(f) .It provides transparency under 2(f) and 4(1) (a) (b) (c) and Accountability under 4(1) (d). 4(1) (d) is check on whether public authority function under and as per 4(1) (a) (b) (c).RTI is a total problem solving mechanism and not just record providing tool.RTI will provide transparency and Accountability and this reduces the corruption. This information and reasons need to be provided to me as per Guide on RTI to Information Act 2005 published by the Government of India Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances & Pensions Department of Personnel & Training (available here :http://rti.gov.in/RTICorner/Guideonrti.pdf) on page 12 and Para 9, following is stated: Providing Reasons for Decisions: The public authorities take various administrative and quasi-judicial decisions which affect the interests of certain persons. It is mandatory for the concerned public authority to provide reasons for such decisions to the affected persons. It may be done by using appropriate mode of communication .Attention is also invited towards the thread 'Affected Person ' under RTI ACT. In fact, it can be said that "Affected" refers back to an action. The "Affected Persons" are the ones who are affected by that action. The reasons need to be given to affected person and copy of that can be given to me under 2 f of RTI Act. The Co-Opeartion Department is THE PUBLIC AUTHORITY under obligation to provide information “PUBLICLY” under section 4(1) (a) (b) (c) (d).

Public authorities cannot take excuse of “missing files” for denying information under the RTI Act as such claims have no legality under the transparency law for withholding records, the Central Information Commission has held.“Unless proved the record was destroyed as per the prescribed rules of destruction/retention policy, it is deemed that record continues to be held by the public authority,” Information Commissioner Sridhar Acharyulu said in his order.The case came before the CIC after one Om Prakash sought to know information from Land and Building Department of Delhi Government regarding allotment of alternative plot in lieu of his land acquired by the Government.The Department admitted before the Commission that the relevant file is missing and it could not be traced even though the officers personally inspected room of the Land and Building Department after receiving the RTI application. The official representing the department said there is no possibility of retrieving the missing record .In a terse order, the Commissioner said loss of records that are required to be kept and maintained permanently, if considered as evidence in a case, should invite criminal complaint against officials under section 201 of Indian Penal Code (punishable with imprisonment which is directly proportional to seriousness of offence charged from seven years to 10 years and for life.) “Claim of file missing or not traceable has no legality as it is not recognised as exception by the RTI Act.

By practice “missing file” cannot be read into as exception in addition to exceptions prescribed by RTI Act.“It amounts to breach of Public Records Act, 1993 and punishable with imprisonment up to a term of five years or with fine or both,” Mr. Acharyulu said. The Commissioner also issued a show cause notice to the Land and Building Department official asking why maximum penalty of Rs 25,000 be not levied upon him.Mr. Acharyulu recommended to the public authority to consider the issue “seriously” as the Commission has been hearing excuse of missing files on many occasions and also to initiate action under Public Records Act, 1993 against responsible persons.“The public authority also has a duty to designate an officer as records officer and protect the records. A thorough search for the file, inquiry to find out public servant responsible, disciplinary action and action against under Public Records Act, reconstruction of alternative file, relief to the person affected by the loss of file are the basic actions the public authority is legitimately expected to perform,” he said.He said, prima facie, public authority cannot deny the right of the appellant by putting forward an excuse of the missing file.“If the file is really not traceable, it reflects the inefficient and pathetic management of files by the Public Authority. If the file could not be traced in spite of best efforts, it is the duty of the respondent authority to reconstruct the file or develop a mechanism to address the issue raised by the appellant,” he said.

INFORMATION DIRECTOR NEEDS TO RECOGNIZE WEB PORTALS AS PER RULE 22 MEDIA ACCREDITATION RULES -2009 “WEB JOURNALISTS” BE GIVEN ID CARDS
by Admin User - Thursday, 16 March 2017, 03:34 AM
 

By: M.S.Yatnatti: Editor and Video Journalist Bangalore: Any running web portal as per section 22 Media accreditation rules -2009 the information director is duty bound to put that web portal in the accredited media list and the journalist working with such web portal need to be given accredited journalist status and given ID Card as per rules of information department. The World Wide Web is an ideal medium of information distribution because it takes away the time lag associated with publishing content and actually making it available to users. With the World Wide Web, you can distribute various announcements to millions of users in a timely manner. Because there is virtually no time lag from the time it takes to publish information to making the information available to users, the Web is an ideal medium to publicize announcements. As more people discover the virtues of the Web and get connected to the Internet, the Web will become the medium of choice for many organizations and individuals to publicize various announcements. The director information has shown disrespect to “web portals” and “web journalists” by declining media accreditation and Vidhan Soudha passes.

The information director instead of disseminating information on various activities of the Government to the people through the web journalists and social media and providing feedback to the Government on important matters reflected in the web portal media the director is closing the doors of Vidhan Soudha to web journalists. The information department should stop treating and discriminating between accredited journalist and non-accredited journalists. There should not be any discrimination between journalists. Government can happily give government facilities to accredited journalist but Vidhan soudha passes need to be given to all journalists as non-accredited journalist do same service without the status of accredited journalists .The Information & Public Relations Department (I & PR) is the nodal agency of the Government of Karnataka for disseminating information on various activities of the Government to the people through the media and providing feedback to the Government on important matters reflected in the media. In addition, it is also the authoritative and official publicity agency of Government of Karnataka .The Department plays a pivotal role in the promotion of schemes and policies that lead to a greater and better understanding between the Government and the people.

It also works as communication medium between the Government and all Media journalists whether accredited by department or not and plays a vital role in taking the welfare schemes to the people.With the atmosphere of peace and a new era for development, the Department strives to promote Karnataka, "The Land of Peace and Progress" to the millions of people around the world. Therefore, the Department of Information & Public Relations is charged with multifarious duties of creating awareness among the people about the nation, the state, its history, diversity, heritage, traditions, its development in various fields and its problems. It disseminates information about the Government, its activities, policies and programmes and also solicits and motivates the public to participate in the national endeavour for the integrated development of the state. It also gives feedback to the Government about its activities. All these involve public relations work such as multi-media publicity campaign, coordination with various departments, the press, Electronic media including web portals and social media AIR, Doordarshan and Local Cable TV operators.The Department is headed by a Director,.

 

Online Journalists are people who gather information that is relevant to the public and communicate this over various media. An online journalist would collect, write or edit news-reports, articles, features, interviews, opinion pieces, photographs or even podcasts and videos on news and events on an online platform.If you are located and work from India, all the laws applicable to citizens of India will also apply to you. These include the Constitution of India, Press Laws and Acts, provisions of the Indian Penal Code and the Criminal Procedures Code, Broadcasting regulations etc. The Press Council of India has a comprehensive list of acts applicable for journalists. Besides, the amended Information Technology Act, 2000, governs all electronic communication. So, if a print, television, radio or mobile media journalist transmitted any information electronically, the provisions of the IT Act would also be applicable.Print media content is governed by a number of laws, including the Constitution of India’s provisions on freedom of expression and privacy, other specific laws on registration of publications, provisions in the Indian Penal Code, etc. An online article will attract different provision of the Information Technology Act, along with all the other laws.

 

 

If you are a print journalist and your report appears online in media company’s website, Information Technology Act apply to you.Unlike print publications, online news sites or portals do not have to be registered in India. All you need is a domain name registration.Only some press laws will apply to a news website in India. Online media does not come under the purview of the Press Council of India, the Working Journalists Act, The Press and Registration of Books Act, 1867, The Young Persons (Harmful Publications) Act, 1956 and the Delivery of Books and Newspapers (Public Libraries) Act, 1954.However, since the amended Information Technology Act, 2000, governs all electronic communication, a news website will come under its purview. Reporters and web editors are legally responsible for content on a site. Under the amended IT Act, 2000, all responsibility for ensuring that no ‘objectionable’ content is uploaded online and for taking down content will vest with the intermediary. Facebook relies on its user community to determine if the content is offensive or not. Every wall post, photo, note etc. has a report abuse link embedded in it. Unlike Twitter, Facebook maintains no record of censorship.The intermediary hosting your site, your editor, reporter will be held responsible.Content on social media networks is usually public, unless users activate privacy settings to restrict viewers. So journalists can use content from social media networks but it is a good idea to be ethical in using material that can compromise privacy.If a blogger posts blogs that are journalistic in nature, i.e., the blogger uses the blogging platforms for posting reports, views, opinions, comments on events, then the blogger can be called a journalist. Bloggers and journalists share the same protection under the law because article 19 (1) (a) that defines freedom of expression applies to all citizens. The media in India does not enjoy special privileges under the law unlike US, where freedom of press was ratified by the First Amendment.A journalist can publish their stories on their personal blogs. A lot depends on the nature of contract with the concerned media organisation s/he works for. A journalist can publish their stories giving an attribution to the employer that published the story originally. If the contract is such that the journalist retains her/his copyright of the story, then the journalist ought to mention it clearly.An online journalistic report seeks to collect and provide information that has a public interest. A blog post can be about a wide range of subjects written in various styles- from one’s opinions, reports and factual information to personal accounts of one’s travels, cookery, pets, health, philosophy etc. Legally, both online journalistic reports as well as blog-posts have the same status under the IT Act.

 

 

 

The blog owner is responsible for the comments on his/her blog. The responsibility also extends to the websites offering free blogging services or the blog hosts.The intermediary is solely responsible for taking down content. If a report elicits comments that are deemed offensive, then the web editor, the reporter, the publisher of the website (if any) will be held primarily responsible and a suit can be filed against them even after takedown of the content. Currently, under the IT Act, there is no provision or forum for you to challenge a complaint or a take down notice. You will have to take down the content within 36 hour of receipt of the complaint and then challenge it in a court of law.Content on social media networks is usually public, unless users activate privacy settings to restrict viewers. So journalists can use content from social media networks but it is a good idea to be ethical in using material that can compromise privacy.If the content is part of a blog created by an individual blog creator, it will vest with the creator. It is a very good idea to state the terms of ownership and sharing of the content prominently on the site.If the content is part of a website, it will vest with the owner of the website.Several bloggers or website owners do try to share content for non-commercial use and obtain limited licences for this. More information can be obtained from CreativeCommons and Copyleft.Copyright comes into existence as soon as a work is created and no formality is required to be completed for acquiring copyright. However, it is advisable to state the terms of copyright at the bottom of your website.No. There is no copyright over news. However, there is copyright over the way in which a news item is reported. http://presscouncil.nic.in/norms.htm For photographers, refer Section 17(b) and for journalists, refer Section 17(a) of amended Copyright Act, 1957

 

 

Web journalism is search-based. A reader can locate the story of his choice by typing the search word or a search phrase. A news story once published on the site can be accessed 24/7 from the newspaper’s online archives in contrast to a printed newspaper where one has to visit a library to locate a story that has been printed a month or a year ago. Newspapers can never match the convenience that media websites bring in terms of access and retrieval. The website can be updated round-the-clock in contrast to the printed newspaper which is printed only once in a day for a specific distribution area. This gives web journalism a big plus over the printed paper. A news website can publish news stories as video reports or multimedia stories, making web journalism a highly versatile news medium . A newspaper is limited to text. This limits the appeal of a newspaper considerably. Citizens can force every PA to create information every day strictly as per the system and procedure as per listed Acts and rules regulations listed under 4(1) (a) (b) (c) every day and that can be cross cheeked by applicant by asking reasons under 4(1) (d) by the affected person and copy of the same can be given to any applicant under 2( f) of RTI Act .Promote transparency and accountability in the working of every public authority. Policy on Prevention, Detection, and Remediation of Fraud and Corruption by government is must and a major element of good governance is the control of corruption. For that reason, controlling corruption has been a key indicator. Good governance is a keystone of government. UPA government has given you RTI Act: Use It optimally :All opposition parties should use RTI optimally .Let they create booth wise RTI activists among their members or cadets and give them training and set of questions and gather that booth level information to perform better as opposition parties .Prime Minister should listen to opposition parties as they are voice of 66% voters. All responsible citizens should send RTI Question to each MP and each Minister and Prime Minister and get to know every day what they are doing and what they are performing and keep check on their performances and give them clear indication that India is awakened and want responsible Government which listens citizens.. All 70 MLAs and 543 MPs are public servants : After election are over all MLAs are public servants and they are MLA for all the constituency .All MLAs should chalk out their plans for development of their constituencies irrespective of who voted for them or who is not voted for them . THE RIGHT TO INFORMATION ACT, 2005 is an Act to provide for setting out the practical regime of right to information for citizens to secure access to information under the control of public authorities, in order to promote transparency and accountability in the working of every public authority.

KNOWINGLY GIVEN INCORRECT, INCOMPLETE OR MISLEADING INFORMATION UNDER THE RTI ACT ATTRACTS DISCIPLINARY ACTION AND 464 /468/166 IPC
by Admin User - Wednesday, 15 March 2017, 02:25 AM
 

By: M.S.Yatnatti: Editor and Video Journalist Bengaluru: The Right to Information Act, 2005 already provides for imposition of penalty and recommendation of disciplinary action by the Central Information Commission/State Information Commission, as the case may be, against the Public Information Officer who has knowingly given incorrect, incomplete or misleading information under the RTI Act. The CIC/SICs have been imposing such penalties and also recommending disciplinary action against such Public Information Officers and directions issued to all the departments to fix responsibility and take action under the Government Employees Conduct Rules 1957. Giving Knowingly false information and forged information attracts IPC 464 Making a false document and IPC 468. Forgery for purpose of cheating.—Whoever commits forgery, intending that the 1[document or electronic record forged] shall be used for the purpose of cheating, shall be punished with imprisonment of either description for a term which may extend to seven years, and shall also be liable to fine.

Section 166 of IPC : Public servant disobeying law, with intent to cause injury to any person : Whoever, being a public servant, knowingly disobeys any direction of the law as to the way in which he is to conduct himself as such public servant, intending to cause, or knowing it to be likely that he will, by such disobedience, cause injury to any person, shall be punished with simple imprisonment for a term which may extend to one year, or with fine, or with both. Most importantly in cited case law by Karira, the Commission themselves have invoked Section 166 of IPC(but have not initiated any action), which further strengthens this line of argument .The relevant extract from the said Order of the CIC is reproduced below;10.

By their conduct, they have therefore committed offences punishable under Sections 166, 187 and 188 of the Indian Penal Code.Hence, if proved, the possibility of action under Section 166 of IPC cannot be ruled out.

The DC and all PAs has to publish every year the work they carry out or the information they create under 4(1) (a) (b) (c) every day ,but it did not published all the work carried out by the DC  under section 4(1) (a) (b) (c) (d) of RTI Act 2005 and it has not provided citizens and opportunity to ask the reasons under section 4(1) (d) . This information and reasons need to be provided to everybody as per Guide on RTI to Information Act 2005 published by the Government of India Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances & Pensions Department of Personnel & Training (available here :http://rti.gov.in/RTICorner/Guideonrti.pdf) on page 12 and Para 9, following is stated: Providing Reasons for Decisions: The public authorities take various administrative and quasi-judicial decisions which affect the interests of certain persons.

The KSOU office is THE PUBLIC AUTHORITY under obligation to provide information “PUBLICLY” under section 4(1) (a) (b) (c) (d). The state government and all its departments need to publish everything they do in year as per RTI Act 2005 and this need to be published every year and applicant asking information becomes easier to provide also to the applicant and Government becomes transparent .
