MUMBAI: Union Minister Sarbananda Sonowal said on Saturday that the government has set up a high-level committee to create an ecosystem conducive to the development of cruise tourism in the country.

The committee is made up of government officials and cruise industry stakeholders.

Sonowal opened the first two-day international cruise conference held here on Saturday.

Speaking to the media on the sidelines of the event, the minister said the government aims to make India the most attractive cruise tourism destination and the biggest industry in the world.

The Minister of Ports, Navigation and Waterways also informed that the government has set up a working group under the leadership of the Secretary of the Ministry of Tourism and the Secretary of Navigation as Vice President.

The high-level committee will help the working group with its ideas and suggestions to the committee, he said.

Emphasizing that the aim of the international conference is to make India a hub for cruise tourism, the minister said the government will provide all the modern infrastructure needed to achieve the goal.

He also expressed hope that state governments will also play their part in promoting the industry, which is seeing demand return after being hit during the pandemic.

“India is going to be the most attractive destination for cruise tourism, and there is no doubt about that because any potential we have in coastal areas and inland waterways is now ready to be explored. It is still untapped. So we will explore with our most modern infrastructure,” Sonowal said.

India aims to increase cruise passenger traffic from the current 0.4 million to 4 million.

The economic potential of cruise tourism is expected to grow from $110 million to $5.5 billion in the coming years, according to an official statement.

To boost the cruise tourism industry in the country, the government has taken several initiatives including upgrading infrastructure, streamlining port charges, abolishing eviction fees, granting priority berthage to cruise ships and the provision of electronic visa facilities, among others, the added version.

The upgrade and modernization is underway at seven major ports in the country including the new flagship international cruise terminal in Mumbai with a total cost of around Rs 495 crore.

Sonowal said India’s cruise market has the potential to grow 10-fold over the next decade, driven by rising demand and disposable income.

“The government realizes this potential and is determined to position India as a global cruise hub with state-of-the-art infrastructure for ocean and river cruises,” he said.

The upcoming offshore cruise terminal at BPX-Indira Dock is expected to be commissioned by July 2024.

It will have a capacity of 200 ships and 1 million passengers per year.

Similar infrastructure upgrading is underway in Goa, New Mangalore, Kochi, Chennai, Visakhapatnam and Kolkata.

“Four themed coastal destination tours, such as Gujarat Pilgrimage Tours, West Coast – Cultural and Scenic Tours, South Coast – Ayurvedic Wellness Tours and East Coast – Heritage Tourism have been developed to activate demand cruising,” Naik said at the conference. .

“The development of lighthouses and islands is also underway to attract coastal tourists, while river or inland cruises are another potential component of cruise tourism that could be explored,” he added.

The state government has taken over the administration of Koosamma Shambhu Shetty Memorial Haji Abdullah Mother and Child Hospital in Udupi.

In a decree passed recently, the Government indicated that it will ensure the maintenance of this new hospital built in public-private partnership. He will also assume all other responsibilities related to this new mother-child hospital.

The Institute was granted a 30-year lease to manage the hospital.

A few weeks after the operations, problems began with the employees who went on strike due to non-payment of wages. Staff members went on strike for a few days in August 2021. They stopped all other work except emergency services in February 2021. Some doctors and nurses stalled work in June 2021 demanding the payment of three months salary pending.

It was on June 9, 2021 that the Institute wrote to the state government stating that it was unable to run the hospital.

Udupi MLA K. Raghupathi Bhat then urged the state government to take over the hospital. During the laying of the foundation stone for the 250-bed district hospital in August 2021 in Udupi, Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai said that a resumption order for the mother and child hospital would be passed.

The state government notified the taking over of the mother and child hospital on April 13, 2022.

Patna, April 26 (IANS): Bihar Assembly Opposition Leader Tejashwi Yadav has announced that a bulletin on the current tenure of Nitish Kumar’s government will be issued on June 5.

The decision was made after meeting with the leaders of the other Mahagathbandhan constituents – CPI, CPI-M and CPI-ML in the RJD office here. However, Congress was not invited and its status is unclear.

“As promised by the NDA government survey led by Nitish Kumar, he had mentioned issues like corruption, employment, good law and order status. Nitish Kumar’s government failed to address these issues over the past 1.5 years, therefore, we decided to issue a bulletin highlighting its failure on June 5,” Tejashwi Yadav said.

“Bihar has a dual engine government but it has failed on all fronts. NDA leaders are not talking about the 19 lakh jobs they promised in the 2020 assembly elections. Criminals are happening frequently in Bihar. Price rise in fuel and raw materials is also exploding in Bihar,” he said.

Karnataka government to implement Azaan law Fri, 22 Apr 2022 12:27:35 +0000

Bangalore, April 22 (IANS): The Karnataka government is ready to strictly enforce the law in relation to Azaan. The move is likely to add to existing social unrest in the state.

Karnataka Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai and CEO of State and IGP Praveen Sood made it clear on Friday that everyone should abide by the law in this regard.

Meanwhile, Sri Ram Sena founder Pramod Muthalik said he had started an “Azaan se Azadi” campaign in the state. He had demanded that the government ensure enforcement of the law on breaking the rules when performing Azaan in mosques.

Instructions were given to harmoniously resolve the Azaan issue by holding peace committee meetings at the police station. The process is ongoing. Everyone should follow the law, Bommai said.

There is a High Court order on Azaan. A circular has already been published to this effect. The rule also specifies the decibel level. The DG has already issued the circular, he said.

IGP Praveen Sood had said that as per the rule, notices have been sent to mosques and other places where loudspeakers are used. “We will not allow any violation of the High Court rule at any cost. Police have issued notices across the state. We will not allow any violation,” he said.

“We will not let the peace be disturbed in the state,” he said. Sources within the police department, however, said any action against a mosque or temple over the use of compounds would have chaotic consequences for the state.

Government must have a ‘human face’: Ask Dr Manmohan Singh Thu, 21 Apr 2022 12:43:48 +0000

A few days ago I read what is generally known in journalistic parlance as a ‘human interest’ story in News Trail titled ‘Orissa High Court orders reinstatement of physically handicapped teacher’ or what we call a teacher “disabled”.

The teacher’s name is Santosh Kumar Padhi. He had previously served in a school (Kokodaguda) for three years as an assistant (SikshyaSahayak). The school is located in the Nabarangpur district of Orissa.

He was later appointed as a junior teacher at the same school effective April 28, 2014. However, he was ‘disengaged’ from the service on February 5, 2018. Santosh Kumar Padhi then appealed to the High Court to challenge the dismissal order.

The High Court issued the order on April 5, 2022, declaring that the applicant’s “disengagement” from the service is not lasting in the eyes of the law and quashed the order.

The judgment rendered by Judge SK Mishra was tempered with such mercy that he ordered not only the reinstatement of the teacher in service, he also ordered the payment of the full salary arrears and all other services from the date of Padhi’s disengagement. More importantly, the judge’s order must be executed within four weeks.

This time-limited payment for services order is specifically passed, probably because, as we all know, bureaucrats usually delay the implementation of such orders for one reason or another. We call this “bureaucratic red tape”. Apparently, the learned, wise and compassionate judge knew the state of mind and bewilderment of the bureaucrats, no matter that the beneficiary was a disabled person.

The school authorities had raised an objection (after so many years) to the disability certificate, saying it was not in the proper legal form. However, the school authorities had overlooked the fact that the content of the said certificate had proven to be accurate. The amiable judge had observed that “mere technicality cannot prevent conferring appropriate advantages on the person concerned”.

The officer, who was the cause of Santosh Kumar Padhi’s problems, was the state commissioner for the disabled. I wonder how many other disabled people like Padhi must have suffered under this bureaucrat.

The judge is so gentle and humane that he observes “obviously the teacher cannot be blamed for the same (handicap)”. Padhi was twice tested by the medical board and on both occasions found the disability to be the reality.

What Justice SK Mishra said further should be a revelation to all government officials and elected representatives and of course ministers. According to the report, Justice Mishra said: “It should be kept in mind that the state is supposed to be a model employer and as such cannot be allowed to take arbitrary and contrary to law.

As I read this report, I remembered what our former prime minister, Dr Manmohan Singh, said as prime minister. He assured the nation that “my government will have a human face”. Of course, that assurance evaporated into thin air. He also had a second term in 2009 and his term ended in disaster for other reasons.

The report on this disabled teacher clearly shows the ‘human face’ of the judiciary when we could not find the ‘human face’ in government as promised by the then Prime Minister himself.

It is interesting to know the timeline of service timeline of Santosh Kumar Padhi in this school. He joined the school as a SikshyaSahayak on April 29, 2011, under the premiership of Dr. Manmohan Singh, who has spoken of a “human face” in administration.

This “human face” continued to work its magic on April 28, 2014 (Dr Manmohan Singh was still Prime Minister), when Padhi was appointed as a junior teacher at the same school.

Yet, paradoxically, Padhi stepped down on February 5, 2018, when Narendra Modi was prime minister. What happened to the “human face”? Probably the bureaucracy thought that the concept of “human face” only applied to the period of the government of the then Prime Minister, Dr. Manmohan Singh, and did not apply to the government of Narendra Modi!

However, fortunately for Padhi, Justice SK Mishra was there to uphold the “human face” principle in the administration.

These types of incidents bring us to a more serious question of the availability of legal protection for the bureaucracy even when it makes mistakes, knowingly or unknowingly, for reasons of corruption or revenge.

When a citizen feels they are being treated unfairly by a government official and reacts in an abusive, violent, or resentful manner, the official is protected by law. The Officer may lodge a complaint with the police against the victimized citizen on the grounds of having prevented an official from carrying out his duties.

Interestingly, today’s Deccan Herald publishes a news article that says a local court in Mangalore has sentenced farmer Sai Giridhara Rai of Sullia taluk to two years simple imprisonment under Section 353 of the IPC (for deterring an official from carrying out his duties) and other relevant articles. .

The reason for the condemnation is that farmer Sai Giridhara Rai had expressed his anger over the frequent load shedding and low voltage to the then Minister of Energy, DK Shivakumar, over the phone. Beware of officials and ministers.

If a government official makes a mistake in their decision or action, they cover themselves up on the pretext that it was an honest mistake.

This brings me to that lofty precept engraved on the massive granite facade of our VidhanaSoudha, the Legislative Assembly building. The formulations are: “The work of government is the work of God” ( ಸರ್ಕಾರದ ಕೆಲಸ ದೇವರ ಕೆಲಸ). Really?

Cordier: An article in the Deccan Herald titled “High Court questions undue sympathy for delinquent officer” also discusses the “sympathy” these officials get from various constitutional and governmental circles. We have judges and Soloman type officers to deal with these delinquent officers, but their numbers are negligible.
