100 government websites differently-abled friendly soon

100 government websites differently-abled friendly soon

New Delhi: Work is on to make 100 government websites differently-abled friendly and 16 such websites are ready, Union Minister for Electronics & Information Technology Ravi Shankar Prasad said today.

Optical fibre measuring 1.39 lakh kms to connect village panchayats with internet has been laid since last two years as against 398 km from 2011-14 during the UPA.

He claimed nearly 104 crore people, comparable to the size of population of Italy and France, are in the ambit of the Aadhar and mobile connections in India since last two years.

“What is Digital India? We are seeking to bridge the divide between Digital Haves and Digital Have-nots,” he said while listing the achievements of Modi government since last two years.

“Of 125 crore people 104 have Aadhar card. They are digitally verifiable. With one click, you can view your face, your iris and finger-tip. It has happened in a completely secure condition and we have are the first ones to have done this,” Prasad claimed.

He was speaking at the launch of Sugamya Pustakalaya- an online library for persons with visual disabilities.

The online library was launched by Prasad, Union HRD Minister Prakash Javadekar, Union Minister for Social Justice and Empowerment Thaawarchand Gehlot, and his two deputies Krishan Pal Gurjar and Ramdas Athawal.

Books are available in accessible formats for people with visual impairment and other print disabilities.

People can access over two lakhs books in diverse languages, integrating libraries across India and the globe, including the largest international library ‘Bookshare’.

“We have linked ‘divyangjans’ with the common service centres in our country. National Informatics Centre (NIC) is in the process of making 100 Government websites ‘divyang’ friendly of which 16 have already been made ‘divyang’ friendly,” Prasad said, as he urged NGOs and citizens to use ‘My Gov’ to provide valuable inputs on central schemes.

Prasad said in order to help children suffering from autism, an e-learning tool has also been developed by the National Institute of Mentally Handicapped and all the scholarships will be under one banner.

Javadekar said there are 23 lakh people special ability under the Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan.

As the HRD Minister, Javadekar said, he receives invitations for convocations, but he has accepted the first invitation from the University meant for differently abled in Thiruvanathapuram.

Gurjar said people with special abilities don’t need sympathy of the people but deserve their love, affection and support.

Reservation in Promotion

The instructions issued by Department of Personnel & Training provide for reservation in promotion to persons belonging to Scheduled Castes (SCs) and Scheduled Tribes (STs) in posts in the Central Government upto the lowest rung of Group ‘A’. These instructions are also being implemented by Central Public Sector Undertakings, wherever reservation in promotion is applicable.

The Supreme Court in its judgment dated 19.10.2006 in the matter of M. Nagaraj & Others vs. Union of India and Ors., while upholding the validity of some of the Constitutional Amendments, observed that the concerned State will have to show in each case the existence of compelling reasons, namely, backwardness, inadequacy of representation and overall efficiency of administration before providing reservation in promotion. In order to provide impediment free reservation in promotion to SCs and STs, the Constitution (One Hundred and Seventeenth Amendment) Bill, 2012 was introduced in Rajya Sabha in September, 2012. The Bill was passed by the Rajya Sabha on 17.12.2012 and transmitted to the Lok Sabha for consideration and passing. The Bill could not be considered in the Lok Sabha and lapsed on the dissolution of 15th Lok Sabha. The issues emanating from the Supreme Court judgment in M. Nagaraj case are under examination.

This was stated by Minister of State for Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions and Minister of State in the PMO Dr. Jitendra Singh in a written reply to a question by Shri Kaushal Kishore in the Lok Sabha today.

Time Taken to Dispose Appeal

As per the Right to Information Act, 2005 it is mandatory on the part of Public Information Officer either to provide the information or reject the request for any of the reasons specified by the RTI Act within 30 days of receipt of the request. However, information concerning life or liberty of a person has to be provided in forty-eight hours of the receipt of request.

Similarly, as per the RTI Act, an appeal shall be disposed of within 30 days on the receipt of the appeal by the First Appellate Authority or within such extended period not exceeding a total of 45 days from the date of filing thereof, as the case may be, for reasons to be recorded in writing.

The Act, however, does not prescribe time limit or target for disposal of 2nd appeal/complaint by the Central Information Commission.

The Commission, however, on 22.03.2011 decided that each Information Commissioner including Chief Information Commissioner will endeavour to decide about 3200 appeals/complaints per year. During 2015, a total of 27,922 appeals/complaints were disposed off.

This was stated by Minister of State for Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions and Minister of State in the PMO Dr. Jitendra Singh in a written reply to a question by Shri Sharad Tripathi, Shri Y.V. Subba Reddy and Shri K.N. Ramachandran in the Lok Sabha today.

Simplified Forms

The subjects like registration of birth and death certificate falls within the State List of the Constitution of India. It is for the States and Union Territory Administrations to take action for simplification of their forms as per the need and requirement. As a part of `Minimum Government & Maximum governance’ various initiatives are being undertaken in the Central Government for reforms, which includes simplification of procedures and forms. Accordingly, Department of Administrative Reforms & Public Grievances has on 15.02.2016 requested all Ministries/Departments to undertake an exercise to review forms concerning citizens’ services and explore the possibility making them one page. Further, administrative reforms, inter-alia, concerning simplification of procedures and forms are a continuous exercise and depend on the requirements of the day.

This was stated by Minister of State for Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions and Minister of State in the PMO Dr. Jitendra Singh in a written reply to a question by Shri V. Panneerselvam, Shri B. Vinod Kumar, Shri Prem Singh Chandumajra, Shri PR Senthil Nathan and Shrimati V. Sathya Bama in the Lok Sabha today.

2012 176126
2013 209637
2014 270255

Amendment in SC/ST Act is need of hour –Gehlot

Amendment in SC/ST Act is need of hour –Gehlot

Union Minister of Social Justice & Empowerment Shri Thaawarchand Gehlot today said that amendment in SC/ST act is the need of the hour. Expressing concern in a meeting held here to review and amend the provisions in the Protection of Civil Rights {PCR} Act, 1955 and the Scheduled Castes and the Scheduled Tribes (Prevention of Atrocities) {PoA} Act, 1989, he said that objective behind this amendment is not only to identify more cases of atrocities which were left unreported earlier but also to increase the successful ending and conviction in this issue so that controlling these kind of small incidents will lead to a just and equal society.

The Minister said that despite the deterrent provisions made in the PoA Act, continuing atrocities against the members of Scheduled Castes (SCs) and Scheduled Tribes (STs) had been a cause of concern. High incidence of occurrences of offences against members of SCs and STs also indicated that the deterrent effect of the PoA Act was not adequately felt by the accused. It was, therefore, considered appropriate to strengthen the Act and make the relevant provisions of the Act more effective. Shri Gehlot added that based on the consultation process with all the stakeholders, amendments in the PoA Act were proposed to broadly cover five areas namely (i) Amendments to Chapter II (Offences of Atrocities) to include new definitions, new offences, to re -phrase existing sections and expand the scope of presumptions, (ii) Institutional Strengthening, (iii) Appeals (a new section), (iv) Establishing Rights of Victims and Witnesses (a new chapter) and (v) strengthening preventive measures. The objective of these amendments in the PoA Act is to deliver members of SCs and STs, a greater justice as well as be an enhanced deterrent to the offenders. The Scheduled Castes and the Scheduled Tribes (Prevention of Atrocities) Amendment Bill, 2015 to effect amendments in the PoA Act as passed by the Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha on 04.08.2015 and 21.12.2015 respectively and assented to by the President on 31.12.2015, has been notified with effect from 26.01.2016.

Article 17 of the Constitution of India abolished ‘untouchability’, forbade its practice in any form and made enforcement of any disability arising out of untouchability as an offence punishable in accordance with the law. An Act of Parliament namely the Scheduled Castes and the Scheduled Tribes (Prevention of Atrocities) {PoA} Act, 1989, which falls within the provisions of Article 17 of the Constitution was enacted for preventing atrocities against members of Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes, to provide for Special Courts for the trial of such offences as well as relief and rehabilitation of the victims of atrocities. The PoA Act extends to the whole of India except Jammu & Kashmir, and responsibility for its implementation rests with State Governments.

A Committee under the Chairpersonship of Union Minister for Social Justice and Empowerment with members from Ministries of Home Affairs, Tribal Affairs, Law and Justice, Department of Justice, National Commission for Scheduled Castes, National Commission for Scheduled Tribes and three non-official members( two amongst SCs and one amongst SC) , which was set up in the year 2006 on a recommendation of the Parliament Committee, to devise ways and means to curb offences of atrocities and ensure effective administration Acts of Parliament namely the Protection of Civil Rights{PCR} Act, 1955 and the Scheduled Castes and the Scheduled Tribes(Prevention of Atrocities){PoA} Act, 1989, was held meeting to review implementation status of PCR and PoA Acts in States and Union Territories.

The aforesaid meeting has a special significance in view of amendments made in the PoA Act as it has cast a greater responsibility on the concerned State Governments and Union Territory Administrations to augment the infrastructure and human resource for its implementation.

Representatives from various states and union territories presented their opinions and suggestions in terms of successful implementation and practice regarding these acts in their respective states. Shri Gehlot presided over the meeting. Minister of State Shri Krishan Pal Gurjar and Shri Vijay Sampla also addressed the august gathering.

“The reservation in promotion is provided to Scheduled Castes (SCs) and Scheduled Tribes (STs) at the rate of 15% and 7.5% respectively in posts and services under the Central Government. As on 1.1.2013, the representation of SCs and STs was 17.55% and 7.72% respectively.

The Hon’ble Supreme Court, on 19.10.2006, in the matter of M. Nagaraj & Ors. V/s Union of India, while upholding the validity of the Constitutional Amendments made in favour of Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes, inter-alia, observed that the State will have to collect quantifiable data of backwardness, inadequacy of representation before providing reservation in promotion.

In order to provide impediment free reservation in promotion to SCs and STs, the Constitutional (One Hundred and Seventeenth Amendment) Bill was introduced in the Rajya Sabha by the Government in September, 2012. The Bill was passed by the Rajya Sabha on 17.12.2012 and transmitted to the Lok Sabha for consideration and passing.

Government order on promotion in jobs to SC-ST employees set aside

Government order on promotion in jobs to SC-ST employees set aside

Patna: The Patna High Court today set aside a government order relating to promotion of employees belonging to Schedule Castes and Schedule Tribes in government jobs.

Justice V Nath pronounced the judgement on the writ petition of one Sushil Kuar Singh.

Justice Nath quashed the order of 2014 after finding that it was not in conformity with a Supreme Court judgement in M Nagaraj case in 2006.

The 2006 order of the apex court had defined condition for providing reservation in promotion in government jobs on caste line.

The government order of December 21, 2014 had stated reservation with consequential seniority in promotion to SC & ST employees.
