Dalits denied pattas, driven out: Study

Express News Service

First Published : 30 Dec 2010 04:04:27 AM IST

CHENNAI: A study conducted by the Tamil Nadu Untouchability Eradication Front (TNUEF) has revealed that families belonging to Scheduled Castes in Chennai have been struggling for the past several decades to get pattas for their lands.

The report on the field study done in 31 localities in Chennai between September and October was released on Wednesday by TNUEF president P Sampath and general secretary K Samuelraj. Denial of patta was a primary problem faced by them, the report stated. Their demand for pattas has not yielded results despite struggling for the past half-a-century. They have been fighting for pattas in many areas, including Kumarasami Rajapuram and M S Nagar in Egmore, Korukkupet, Sikkanderpalayam, Perambur, Mettupalayam, Kolathur SRP Colony and Dharmapuram.

Under the guise of removing encroachments, the oppressed people were being driven out of their traditional residential areas. Also, the benefits of urbanisation have not reached them. There were no adequate toilet facilities forcing them to defecate in the open, the report stated. The facilities in the hostels meant for Scheduled Caste students too were appalling.

Dalits were being driven out of places where they had traditionally lived. They were being forced to live in tenements of just 120 sq ft size in new residential areas in Sholinganullur and Semmancherry, the report pointed out.

PNS | DEHRADUN

To discuss on problems faced by people belonging to SC/ST and OBCs', National Action Forum for Social Justice organised a seminar in Dehradun on Wednesday. National Scheduled Caste Commission Chairman PL Puniya was the chief guest on the occasion.

While addressing the gathering, Puniya said that after the 61 years of implementation of the Constitution, the exploitation of Dalits is still continuing in various parts of country. Untouchables still exist in various states of the country including Uttar Pradesh, Harayana, Uttarakhand, Bihar, Punjab, Jharkhand, Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Bihar and others. Mid-day Meal cooked by the Dalits (Bhojan Mata) is being boycotted at various places, which can be read in newspapers and TV news channels. The execution of Central and State Government sponsored schemes including rations, scholarships, pensions, reservations; food for works and others for SC/ST is very poor in various states.

The purpose of the seminar is to create awareness among the people about their rights and how to get it. In addition to that State Government should ensure that welfare schemes are being reached to the beneficiaries. "The people belonging to SC/ST should be given reservation in private sectors also.

While talking to The Pioneer State President SP Singh said that people belonging to SC/ST are facing huge problem to get their caste certificates as they are being asked by district administer to submit a proof of ancestors caste certificates (before 50 years).

The Central and State Government should make a committee, who will review the welfare schemes run by both Governments for the welfare of the SC/ST and OBCs. He said that the poor farmers belonging to the SC/ST, especially in Haridwar districts are being exploited by the administrative officers. He demanded that the State Government should submit the reports to the commission what action was being taken against those officers who were responsible for it.

State Opposition Leader Harak Singh Rawat said that the Central and State Government welfare schemes are not reaching to the beneficiaries. He alleged that the BJP-led Government failed to provide basic rights to the people belonging to SC/ST and OBCs.

Among those present on the occasion were Hira Singh Bisht, Lal Chandra Sharma, Prabhat Dabral, Subodh Uniyal, Vinod Nautiyal, Anail Kumar Sharma, Madan Rawat, Bhupendra Kumar, Sharad Bahuguan and others.

SC/ST Commission Visits Deceased Dalit Sisters' Home

http://news.outlookindia.com/item.aspx?706761

Chairman of the SC/ST Commission today visited Kothiwal Nagar here to take stock of the situation after two Dalit sisters were charred to death allegedly by a mob on December 18.

P L Punia, the chairman of the Commission, talked to the victims' relatives and summoned the District Magistrate, DIG, SP (city) and Circle Officer (city), Moradabad, to appear before the Commission on January 10.

"The case of the Dalit sisters being burnt was an open case of murder, while the local administration has tried to mould the case into that of an accident or suicide," Punia told PTI.

He said in a similar case of crime against Dalits in Delhi, the Police Commissioner had summoned the Deputy Commissioner of Police and Secretary, Social Welfare, R K Srivastava, who was arrested after ignoring the summons.

On a question on the status of Dalits in India, Punia said that while the position of the Dalits is not satisfactory in any state, it is the worst in Uttar Pradesh, even though the state's Chief Minister Mayawati belongs to the Dalit community.

The Moradabad case of atrocities against Dalits is "horrible", he said, adding, it shows the status of the Dalits in the state.

Talking about the facilities available to the SC/STs, Punia alleged the funds for the benefit and uplift of SC/STs are being diverted to works like development of roads, medical colleges and even the Commonwealth Games.

Reservation was also not providing good jobs to those belonging to the backward castes, Punia said.

The Commission has started an awareness campaign to make Dalits aware of their rights, he said.

Discrimination at the Puri Temple

http://www.southasiamail.com/news.php?id=93602

By Dr. Anuradha Sharma

On 28th December, 2010 the report came to me like a bolt from the blue that Katie Leonard with her pal was detained at the temple of Puri. I have never visited the shrine of Jagannath and would not like to visit a place that categorizes people on the basis of their nationality. India has given right to its people to visit religious places. Even this is incomprehensible that the policies of a holy place inflict restrictions on the foreigners.

These pundits, who have damaged the culture of the country for centuries and left us to bemoan on the fate of reservation and a long list of dalits, are not ashamed on their part played in shaping a painful history for this country. A culture, that sings for universal peace and Vasudhaiva Kutumbkam, is seemed hollow when it's deities inside the tight security are polluted by the entry of an American student.

A Lord has polluted by the entry and He is made pure by washing again drawing the student out of the temple premises. This discriminatory history goes back when in the same temple Late Prime Minister Indira Gandhi was not allowed to enter though she was an Indian. Hindus are not those who follow the Hindu religion but those who live in Hindustan. Have the authorities ever asked every Hindu before framing such biased policy for the temple.

I am not aware about the constitution of Jagannath Temple but I am proud of the cultural heritage of this country that says "Atithi Devo Bhav" (guests are God). We daily watch a few advertisements promulgating the values of "welcoming guests". Born and brought up with the culture of humanity I could never digest this discrimination based on religion. The establishment that hates humans cannot be welcomed. If it is something that prohibits entry of living souls into the temple it is not something normal. I am of the firm conviction if there is anything anti-human then it should be changed immediately.

I pray for those mentally sick priests of the temple to get well soon from their indefinable psychological complexes. God must give them insight to recognize the unfathomable beliefs of the culture of India. Philosophers have said that Hiduism is not a religion it is a way of life. Common souls like me only can pity those who do not know the depth of religion and pose themselves as the pillars of the religion.

Last month when I visited Canada I had very good experiences. The people I met there took extra care so that I may not get a bitter experience or bring black image of their country back home. I feel we fail in doing the same.

T.K. RAJALAKSHMI

A convention of Muslim organisations calls for speedy implementation of the Ranganath Mishra and Sachar reports.

"I AM a domestic worker and have four children, the youngest is six months old. My husband is a rickshaw-puller, he remains ill most of the time and so I have to work. My eldest daughter is six years old – she looks after the other children when I am gone. We have no ration card or any other proof of identity – I cannot get my daughter admitted to school as they demand proof of birth and identity. I have neither. They ask money for making a ration card or giving admissions. I live on rent and do not know when my hutment will get demolished. I have worked in many places in Delhi and the National Capital Region ever since I remember."

These are the words of Rukhsana, 30, a Muslim and a migrant. She has not heard either of the Ranganath Mishra Commission or the Sachar Committee report.

In the tenure of the United Progressive Alliance (UPA) government, the years 2006 and 2007 assume special importance as two important reports pertaining to minorities, particularly Muslims, were prepared by two commissions with the intent of framing remedial policies for the uplift of the indigent sections among them.

On December 4, the National Convention for Muslim Rights, held by leading Muslim organisations, along with representatives of political parties in the capital, urged the Union government to implement without further delay the comprehensive recommendations made by the two commissions.

The organisations included the Kolkata-based Democratic Forum for National Integration, the Delhi-based Muslim Intelligentsia Forum and the Hyderabad-based Awaaz . The delegates, comprising academics and experts, political party representatives and State government functionaries, concluded unanimously that the Union government had developed cold feet on the recommendations of the two commissions. Among the speakers were K. Rahman Khan, Deputy Chairman, Rajya Sabha; Syeda Saiyidain Hameed, Member, Planning Commission; Maulana Anisur Rahman Qasmi, Member, All India Muslim Personal Law Board; Zahid Ali Khan, editor of Hyderabad-based Siasat; and Anwar Pasha, Associate Professor at the Centre for Indian Languages, Jawaharlal Nehru University.

The National Commission for Religious and Linguistic Minorities, headed by Justice Ranganath Mishra, was notified on October 29, 2004. The first UPA government, backed by the Left parties, had made a commitment in its Common Minimum Programme "to establishing a National Commission to see how best the welfare of socially and economically backward sections among religious and linguistic minorities, including reservation in education and employment, is enhanced".

The commission was to suggest criteria for identifying socially and economically backward sections among religious and linguistic minorities and recommend measures for the welfare of these sections, including measures such as reservation in education and government employment, and suggest constitutional, legal and administrative modalities for the implementation of the recommendations. It submitted its report on March 10, 2007, and it was tabled two years later, in December 2009. The irony is that the report was tabled without an action-taken report, which made it unclear whether the recommendations had been accepted or not by the Union government.

"We wrote not once but four times asking for a debate on the Ranganath Mishra Commission recommendations. I raised this at every session of the Rajya Sabha," said Ali Anwar Ansari, a Rajya Sabha member from the Janata Dal (United). He pointed out that it was on the instructions of the Supreme Court that the terms of reference were expanded to include the Dalits among Muslims.

"Both the commissions had concluded that the Muslim community was not a monolith and homogenous one. The Sachar Committee used terms like Ashraf, Ajlal and Ajmal from the Arabic to show that the community was socially stratified," he said. Ansari lauded the West Bengal government's decision to give 10 per cent reservation for Muslims in government jobs. Nearly 85 per cent of the Muslim population in the State was covered under reservation, explained delegates from the ruling Left Front in West Bengal. In Andhra Pradesh, where a similar step was undertaken, the Supreme Court, in an interim order, upheld the validity of 4 per cent reservation to backward members of the Muslim community.

The Ranganath Mishra Commission said: "Since the minorities – especially the Muslims – are very much under-represented, and sometimes wholly unrepresented, in government employment, we recommend that they should be regarded as backward in this respect within the meaning of that term as used in Article 16 (4) of the Constitution." The commission recommended 15 per cent reservation for backward minorities in education and jobs, with 10 per cent earmarked for Muslims (as they constituted 73 per cent in the total minority population in the country) and 5 per cent for other minorities.

Delegates at the conference demanded the speedy implementation of the commission's recommendation of 10 per cent reservation for socially and educationally backward Muslims and the extension of the benefits of reservation available to the Scheduled Castes among Hindus, Sikhs and Buddhists to their counterparts among Muslims and Christians. In a resolution, the delegates demanded that any additional allocation should be made from the open quota without disturbing the present quota fixed for Other Backward Classes and the S.Cs. If necessary, the government should initiate the process for a constitutional amendment to ensure that over 50 per cent reservation can be provided, they said.

Shocking revelations

The Sachar Committee, a high-level committee on the social, economic and educational status of the Muslim community in India, was constituted in March 2005. It came up with shocking revelations about the low status of Muslims, who had slipped behind the Scheduled Castes and the Scheduled Tribes in terms of socio-economic and educational indicators. Delegates at the convention said that a complete review of the implementation of the committee's proposals and a debate in Parliament were needed. They asked why the government had ignored the widespread demand, which was also made by the National Minorities Commission, for a 15 per cent budgetary sub-plan for the development of the Muslim community. They pointed out that the government had not even accepted the M.A.A. Fatmi Committee's recommendations. (Fatmi, who was a Minister of State in the Human Resource Development Ministry, headed a high-powered committee that prepared an action plan.)

The Sachar Committee's report was tabled in the Lok Sabha on November 30, 2006. Nine months later, on August 30, 2007, "follow-up Action on the recommendations of the Sachar Committee" was placed in Parliament, but no discussion was held despite a demand from political parties.

Speakers at the conference observed that the follow-up action did not contain any new policies or mention time-bound targets or a clear-cut financial allocation. What was reiterated and emphasised was the Prime Minister's 15-point programme for the welfare of minorities, which pre-dated the Sachar Committee's recommendations. And the situation seemed to have improved only marginally in some sectors. The government had set up a three-year timeline in 2007 for ensuring 15 per cent priority-sector lending by banks to members of the minority communities; by 2010, only 13.77 per cent lending was achieved.

Similarly, 90 districts with a concentration of minority communities were identified for the implementation of a Multi-Sectoral Development Programme for Minorities (MSDP). Political parties, including the Left parties, had demanded that blocks be identified as units for the implementation of the programme instead of entire districts. In any event, these 90 districts, selected under the "targeted" policy, covered only 35 per cent of the Muslim population. The allocation, too, was meagre. The Eleventh Plan had envisaged an allocation of Rs.30.5 crore for each district over five years for the development of the minorities; of this, only Rs.1,440.29 crore was released for 89 districts until November 30, 2010, which came to slightly over Rs.16 crore a district, almost half of what was allocated by the Plan.

The scheme for providing quality education in madrasas was allocated Rs.325 crore under the Eleventh Plan, but an outlay of only Rs.95 crore was made over a period of three years. The delegates from West Bengal pointed out that the State's budget provision for madrasa education for a single year, 2009-10, was Rs.526 crore, surpassing the Plan period's total allocation for five years. Even the total expenditure of Rs.7,000 crore on all Central and Centrally sponsored schemes for the minorities over five years constituted a minuscule 0.32 per cent of the total outlay for the Eleventh Plan. And less than half of what was allocated had been spent in the first three years of the Plan period.

P.S. Krishnan, former Member Secretary of the National Commission for Backward Classes, said that in Hutton's (J.H. Hutton's census of 1931) Census report, only the untouchables among Hindus were included as such; the untouchables in other communities were not considered. He recommended that a portion of the Plan should go to the minorities with specific allocations to Dalits and backward Muslims. The Minister of State for Minority Development and Madrasa Education in West Bengal, Abdus Sattar, said that the Union government refused to consider a sub-plan for minorities despite the Sachar Committee placing Muslims below the S.Cs and the S.Ts in some indicators.

The Chairman of the West Bengal Minorities Development Finance Commission, Mohammad Salim, made a fervent plea for a discussion in Parliament on the Sachar Committee recommendations. "Conditions were created so that no discussion takes place. The appeasement theory has been laid bare by the findings of the report," he added. Salim also pointed out that the MSDP was a brainchild of the United Front government, and the Left parties had insisted that the block should be the unit of implementation for it to be effective. The demand, made more than a decade ago, was still valid, he said.

"The Sachar report is a diagnostic one; the Ranganath Mishra report is the operative part," he said, adding that the government needed to act on both with equal urgency.

Focussing on the issue of education for Muslims, M.A.A. Fatmi said that he was "disturbed" that the recommendations of his committee pertaining to education were not even considered. The recommendations had addressed all areas including adult literacy and higher education.

"We said that wherever there was a population of 250, a school should be opened; we recommended that Kendriya Vidyalayas be opened in Muslim majority areas and that an Urdu university be started. Had that happened, this would have helped lots of Muslim children," he said.

    Investors' wealth swells over 10-fold in 10 years

    MUMBAI: In an eventful decade, the wealth of investors in the Indian stock market has grown over 10-fold to nearly Rs 73 lakh crore by the end of 2010.


    Besides, during the decade ended today, the total investor wealth, measured in terms of cumulative market capitalisation of all listed companies on the Bombay Stock Exchange , grew to nearly 10-fold from about Rs 7,00,000 crore at the end of the year 2000, to Rs 72,96,725.14 as on December 31, 2010.


    Last 10 years have seen the stock markets bellwether Sensex travelling from 4,000 mark in 2001, to over 20,500 by the end of 2010.


    "Sensex has grown over five-fold over the past decade. To put in other words, if somebody has invested Rs 1,00,000 in Sensex at the beginning of the decade, it would have, at present, become Rs 5,16,792," SMC Capitals equity head Jagannadham Thunuguntla said.


    Stock markets have witnessed a smart surge over the decade on the back of robust overseas investments and strong India growth story, said an expert.


    "The barometer of Indian capital markets Sensex has moved up five fold from 4,000 to 20,000 in this decade and the FII investment, which was Rs 6,200 crores in the year 2000 has surpassed Rs 1,00,000 crore in 2010," Unicon Securities Vice President Research Madhumita Ghosh said.


    Going forward, experts feel that with the growing stature of India on the global front, the coming decade will also be equally fruitful for India.

    Friends, I was offline for last week as I was busy in 27th Mulnivais Bamcef National Conference in Durgapur.

    Last year, we could not get a Venue in Bengal and the Venue was shifted to Jaipur in Rajasthan where no less than EIGHTY Four Thousand Delegates joined the convention last year.

    We tried our best to get a place in Kolkata or adjoined to Kolkata, but failed. Finally, we managed to get Chitralaya Ground, HARICHAND GURUCHAND NAGAR  in Durgapur which was not controlled by the Marxists Government.

    Since Bamcef started, it is the First ever National Convention in Bengal which crossed the Jaipur record on the first day.

    One Lac Eight Thousand delegates joined this year and Bengal  delegates were no less than Five thousand.

    Disturbances in railway schedule in Rajsthan due to Gurjjar Movement and Terror struck South Eastern Railway had been great hinderance. But this time, delegates form South India, Orissa, Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, Jharkhand, Gujrat, Chhattishgargh and MP overwhelmed all expectations.

    The Ruling Brahaminical Hegemony arranged a Baba Ramdev Yoga Tour since 20th to 28th December in Bengal and hijacked the Anti Brahaminical Matua Movement, but Bengali delegates recorded Highest Number! The Brahaminical Toilet Media has Branded Harichand Thakur who led the Indigenous aboriginal Peasantry comprising of SC, ST,BC, OBC and Minority  communities in Indigo Revolt and Rejected Brahaminical Religion and Ritual establishing Matua Religion, as Brahaminical and Matua as Religious Sect!What a Manipulation of History as Harichand Thakur led the Great Chandal Movement to ABOLISH Untouchability and Annihilition of Caste was his Fundamental Objective even before Phule, Ambedkar and Narayan Guru.

    As Pune Peetpawan Brahamins made Dada Kondu Ramdas the Biological father of Chhatrapati Shivaji defaming JIJAU Mata, the Bengali Kayastha Brahamins do try to Bastardise the Aboriginal Legacy of Matua Chandal Indigo Pesantry Insurrections!

    The Matuas - a subaltern religious sect, comprising mainly lower caste, poor Hindu refugees from East Pakistan/Bangladesh - achieved the near impossible by getting top CPM and Trinamool Congress leaders on the same stage at Esplanade on Tuesday, along with those of the Congress, the BJP and the Forward Bloc.

    It's proof that the Matuas are a force no party in Bengal can ignore. The community, a 5-lakh-strong vote base, first made its presence felt in the Bongaon assembly bypolls in 2006 when it rose against the CPM and handed the ruling party a crushing defeat.

    This is why CPM leaders Gautam Deb and Kanti Biswas could not refuse the Matua Mahasangh invite for a mega rally in the city to place their chief demand - citizenship rights to Bangladeshi refugees who moved to India after 1971. There were no slogans or political banners. The Matuas announced their might with conch shells and drums and "horibol" on their lips.

    While the mega rally choked the heart of the city, chief minister Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee entertained a Matua delegation at Writers' and assured he would take up their demands with the Centre.

    On the dais, Pradesh Congress chief Manas Bhuniya promised to speak to Congress president Sonia Gandhi, PM Manmohan Singh and home minister P Chidambaram by the second week of January.

    Former BJP state chief Tathagata Roy repeatedly pointed out his party had all along been sympathetic to Hindu refugees fleeing Bangladesh even after May 25, 1971. Trinamool MP Mukul Roy, the Union MoS for shipping, also showed along with party MP Gobinda Naskar and MLA Jyotipriya Mullick (both representatives of Matua-dominated areas).

    Roy and Deb shared the dais for a few minutes before the Trinamool leader got a call on his mobile and climbed down. He spent the rest of the afternoon at a nearby tea stall.

    Deb congratulated the Matua organizers for being able to rally all mainstream parties. "It makes me happy to see Congress, CPM, Trinamool and BJP leaders on stage. You have a valid point. Let all MPs from Bengal set aside their political differences and take up with Delhi the plight of the refugees.

    When it comes to the interest of state, we should not stick to narrow politics. My department did not hesitate to hand over 72 acres of land in Haldia to Kolkata Port Trust although Trinamool's Mukul Roy is the minister of state for shipping," the Bengal housing minister said.

    IANS

    A crore votes at stake, Trinamool, CPI-M, Congress, BJP share dais


    KolkKolkata, Dec 28 (IANS) The compulsions of vote bank politics presented a rare sight here Tuesday when leaders of West Bengal's arch-rivals Communist Party of India-Marxist (CPI-M) and Trinamool Congress, as also of the Congress and the BJP, shared the dais at a rally organised by a group of Scheduled Castes organised by a group of Scheduled Castes


    This, when the main opposition Trinamool has been boycotting, since last year's Lok Sabha polls, government functions where CPI-M ministers and leaders were in attendance.
    The union ministers from Trinamool had even in the past left the venue of government functions midway to avoid been seen with CPI-M functionaries.
    However, with the All India Matua Mahasangha group, said to wield influence over more than one crore voters mostly in the state's southern districts, political parties made a beeline for the rally in the heart of Kolkata.
    Among those at the rally were state Housing Minister and CPI-M state secretariat member Gautam Deb and Trinamool top gun and union Minister of State for Shipping Mukul Roy - the latter having come with two other party leaders - besides state Congress chief Manas Bhunia and BJP's Tathagata Roy, apart from leaders of other partners of the ruling Left Front.
    'This is historic. It is great that Trinamool leaders are also here, besides leaders of other parties,' said Deb in his address.
    'It is a difficult task to bring all political parties in our state together for a cause, but the Matua Mahasangha has successfully done this,' said Deb expressing his thanks to Barama - Binapani Debi, who heads the group of SCs and OBCs comprising mostly immigrants from Bangaldesh.
    Deb also urged all political parties, mainly the Trinamool leaders, to keep aside the political differences and come together to launch the movement on development issues and noble causes.
    'All the 42 Lok Sabha members from West Bengal and the MPs in Rajya Sabha irrespective of their political affiliations should come together and place the demands of the Matua Mahasangha in parliament,' said Deb.
    Roy and other Trinamool leaders sat on the dais but did not speak. Echoing Deb, Bhunia said his party will support whole heartedly if all the parties come together on the issues raised by the Matua Mahasangha.
    'A Congress delegation, including me, will place the demands of the Matua before Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, Home Minister P. Chidambaram, Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee and Congress president Sonia Gandhi in January,' said Bhunia.
    The Matua Sangha, founded by Binapani Devi's husband's great grandfather Harichand Thakur, a Brahmin, at Gopalganj in Faridpur (now in Bangladesh), held the rally demanding changes in the Citizenship (Amendment) Act 2003 to give citizenship, voting rights and proper rehabilitation to refuges staying in India over decades.
    A team of delegates of the Matua Mahasangha also submitted a deputation before Governor M. K. Naranayan and Chief Minister Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee.

      Sensex enters New Year on optimistic note; gains over 3,000 points in 2010

      MUMBAI: India's robust economic growth and record overseas investments helped the stock market add about Rs 12 trillion to investor wealth, as the BSE benchmark Sensex gained over 3,000 points during 2010. It gained 17 percent in 2010, to be among the best-performing major Asian markets this year.

      As the stock market closed on a bullish note on the last day 2010, with a 120.02 point surge in Sensex today, the benchmark index rose by 3044.28 points for the entire year.

      In the process, the total investor wealth, measured in terms of cumulative market capitalisation of all listed companies, rose to Rs 72,96,725.14 crore, from Rs 60,79,000 crore at the end of 2009. During the period, the Sensex rose from 17,464.81 points on December 31, 2009 to 20,509.09 points today.

      Besides, during the decade ended today, the total investor wealth grew over 10-fold from about Rs 7,00,000 crore at the end of the year 2000. The Sensex registered nearly five-fold rise over the 10-year period.

      "The barometer of Indian capital markets Sensex has moved up five fold from 4,000 to 20,000 in this decade and the FII investment, which was Rs 6,200 crores in the year 2,000, has surpassed Rs 1,00,000 crore in 2010," Unicon Securities Vice President Research Madhumita Ghosh said.

      Market experts said the key driving forces behind the market rally this year, when the stocks rose by an average of over 17 per cent, were impressive FII inflows as also the continuing robustness of domestic economy, which inched closer to the 9 per cent annual growth level.

      "In 2009-10, in lieu of the global meltdown Indian market showed better resilience due to stricter banking norms and robust domestic demand. We showed faster recovery and reverted to to GDP growth of closer to 9 per cent in FY10," Globe Capital PMS Head KK Mittal said.

      The year also saw the Sensex hitting its record closing level of 21004.96 points on Diwali day, November 5. However, the record-breaking bull run continued only till Diwali, and consolidation, marked with bouts of sluggishness, was seen on the bourses in the last two months of 2010.

      Scrap coal nationalisation

      It is unfortunate that the environment and coal ministries are at loggerheads over the so-called 'no-go' areas for mining. The coal ministry has reportedly sought the Union Cabinet's nod for 203 coal blocks that are being denied mining permission, because they fall in the no-go areas.


      The way to resolve the issue is to keep the big picture in mind, and to proceed with pragmatism, taking note of the ground realities. Coal-bearing areas amount to only about 0.54% of the total land mass. Further, forest cover on coal-rich land adds up to just 0.16% of India .s landmass.


      The minuscule forest cover involved need not mean that the environmental consequences can be dismissed out of hand. The coal-rich forest areas may be ecologically fragile regions or involve core areas of biodiversity.


      But the point to note is that much of our coal, which provides for over half our commercial energy needs and accounts for 70% of power generation, is sourced from a regionally concentrated zone in south-central India. Estimates also suggest that the identified 203 blocks can double the total installed thermal power capacity. But we do need to differentiate between mere possibility and practicality.


      It may well be that many of the blocks are simply too remote and inaccessible to provide coal-linkage at reasonable cost. In many cases, it would be far more cost-effective to import, say, Australian coal and reap the benefits of high mining yields abroad (and access better coal grades as well).


      Also, it is possible that some of the coal-bearing forested areas are amenable to environmentally-sustainable mining practices. This would require compensatory afforestation so that the overall forest cover of the coal-belt is not reduced.


      But more important is the need for proactive policy for inclusive development in the mineral and coal rich areas, which paradoxically also have the highest poverty ratios and are industrially, economically and socially backward.


      Additionally, instead of encouraging sprinkling of capacity, we need to step up productivity in domestic mining with reforms and do away with a panoply of existing rigidities. The continuing policy of coal nationalisation is a glaring anachronism indeed.

      The EPFO mess

      The Employees Provident Fund Organisation's ( EPFO ) move to ask the government to bar workers from withdrawing their PF balances on switching jobs is a frantic but incremental step to salvage the employees' provident fund scheme.


      Sure, the proposal — based on an internal study which showed that only 0.8% of workers opted to transfer their PF account to their new job — will help workers build a retirement corpus. However, the suggestion has come too late. The EPFO is in a mess. The management of the EPF is opaque and the guaranteed return is sub-optimal .


      Its accounting systems are archaic , hindering seamless portability. A new rule to bolster the retirement corpus of workers is no guarantee that the EPFO will manage its funds efficiently. Workers need professional asset managers to better manage their retirement savings.


      This is available in the form of the New Pension System (NPS) that manages pension funds of civil servants who joined service in 2004 or thereafter, and, later, of voluntary individual members. The NPS offers seamless portability and also has restrictions on withdrawals. The government should amend the EPF Act, allow workers to exit the EPFO and take their provident fund account to the NPS along with the employers' contribution.


      Unlike the EPFO, the NPS is a well-designed scheme. Individuals can choose their fund manager and the risk profile of the allocation of their savings to different investments .


      Their contributions and returns are deposited in a pension account that does not allow any withdrawals . At retirement, the individual has to invest at least 40% of the pension wealth to buy an annuity that provides a monthly income for life. However, in addition to the pension account, an individual can have a voluntary tier-II account.


      Withdrawals from this account are possible at any time. The two-tier structure gives more flexibility. The returns from NPS, which charges the lowest fund management and record keeping fees globally , are superior. More efforts to revamp the EPF will be futile. Instead, the NPS should be marketed better, with more incentives for its distributors.

      Ratan Tata dreams of cars running on water: Scientist

      BANGALORE: Tata Group Chairman Ratan Tata's dream is to see cars run on water and he has invested USD 15 million in a start-up firm supporting research in the field, an eminent scientist said today.


      Chairman of the Scientific Advisory Council to the Prime Minister Prof C N R Rao said one of his close friends and a professor in the famed Massechusetts Institute of Technology in the US has found a way to split water directly into hydrogen and oxygen.


      " Ratan Tata has given him (the Professor) 15 million (US) dollars so that he (Tata) can own that company when it comes up," Prof Rao said.


      "He (Tata) wants to invest in a company which will split water directly into hydrogen and oxygen," Rao said, adding, when any kind of water -- toilet water, rain water or sea water -- can split to hydrogen and oxygen, then these components can be used for energy.


      "And a dream of Ratan Tata is eventually cars will be run on water. My dream is also that," he said, referring to a recent conversation he had with the Tata Group Chairman.


      Rao spoke on this initiative during a press conference convened by the Chemical Research Society of India to give details of the organisation's planned activities in 2011, an year which had been declared as the "International Year of Chemistry" by the United Nations.
