  • UBA-SRMIST hosts virtual webinar on NEP 2020

    Kattankulathur:

    SRM Institute of Science and Technology, Kattankulathur under its Unnat Bharath Abhiyan (UBA) flagship organized a webinar on New Education Policy 2020 on 21 September 2020. Vice Chancellor of SRMIST Dr.Sandeep Sancheti delivered the keynote address on the new education policy. Over 1000 students, faculty members, UBA-SRMIST adopted villages, and other academia and industry have participated in this sensitized program.


    Dr. V. Thirumurugan, Nodal Officer, UBA-SRMIST, and the Associate Director (campus life) welcomed all, and Dr.R.Senthil, Associate Professor, Mechanical narrated the profile details of the speaker Dr.Sandeep Sancheti.

    In his speech Dr.Sandeep Sancheti explained all the features of the new education policy, it’s outcome, and how it benefits the country as a whole. He briefed the overarching vision and comprehensive framework of NEP 2020 for both school and higher education. Further, he detailed the impact of NEP2020 as a new regulator proposed for higher education with separate verticals for regulation, standard-setting, accreditation, and funding.


    He said that the NEP2020 would absorb arts and science, technical and teacher knowledge into its fold, replace several existing regulatory bodies, and ensure a level playing field for public and private players.
    He added this new educational policy is mainly student-centric and highly flexible. For students, the most meaningful change may be introducing four-year undergraduate degrees, with options for entry and exit at various stages, a credit transfer system, and abolishing the M Phil program.


    He insisted that the target for policy to transform the education system is about 15-20 years. The National Testing Agency will introduce a pilot version of the common entrance test, used for admission to all Institute of Eminences (IoEs) and central universities in 2021. Some Indian Institutes of Technology are developing the Academic Credit Bank's technical structure, which will also be established and become applicable to all new students joining central universities next year.



    The keynote address mainly focused on the roadmap to achieve the GER 50% in the next 15 years. The resource person discussed the challenges of implementation aspects and the merits of the NEP 2020.

  • Kisan Credit Card (KCC)

    PM-KISAN Scheme

    PM Kisan is a Central Sector scheme with 100% funding from Government of India.

    It has become operational from 1.12.2018.

    Under the scheme an income support of 6,000/- per year in three equal installments will be provided to small and marginal farmer families having combined land holding/ownership of upto 2 hectares.

    Definition of family for the scheme is husband, wife and minor children.

    State Government and UT administration will identify the farmer families which are eligible for support as per scheme guidelines.

    The fund will be directly transferred to the bank accounts of the beneficiaries.

    The first instalment for the period 1.12.2018 to 31.03.2019 is to be provided in the financial year itself.


    Kisan Credit Card (KCC) is one of the major schemes launched by the government to help small farmers. The Government of India (GoI) gives up to Rs 1.6 lakh KCC loan without any collateral or guarantee to the small farmers who hold KCC. As per the tax and investment experts, farmers can take loans up to Rs 5 lakh KCC loan in 3 years. The KCC loan interest rate is also very low at 4 per cent per annum. But, to avail the Kisan Credit Card facility, a farmer must open account under PM Kisan Samman Nidhi Yojana. As the center has made it clear that it is going to distribute around 2.5 crore Kisan Credit Card, it becomes important for the small farmers to know about the benefits of KCC and cheaper KCC loan.

    Through the Kisan Credit Card, farmers can take a short-term loan of up to Rs 3 lakh in 5 years. Although the loan is available at the rate of 9 per cent, but the government gives a subsidy of 2 per cent on it. In this sense, it stands at 7 per cent. On the other hand, if the farmer returns this loan on time, then he gets a further rebate of 3 per cent. Means, after repaying the first loan on time, the small farmer who holds Kisan Credit Card, becomes eligible for an additional 3 per cent rebate on the KCC loan and then the KCC loan interest rate become 4 (7-3 = 4) per cent.

    KCC online application

     

    The validity of the Kisan Credit Card is five years. On can get up to Rs 1.6 lakh collateral free loan without any guarantee and all KCC loans are covered under crop insurance scheme. The GoI is going to issue 2.5 crore new Kisan Credit Card and hence those small farmers who have account in PM Kisan Samman Nidhi Yojana, should immediately apply for the KCC.

     

    Here is the step by step guide to apply for Kisan Credit Card online:

     

    1] Go to the official site of PM Kisan Samman Nidhi Yojana — pmkisan.gov.in;

    2] Download the Kisan Credit Card form;

    3] Fill Kisan Credit Card form with the documents of your land, details of the crop, etc;

    4] Give declaration that you have not made any other Kisan Credit Card from any other bank or branch; and

    5] Submit the application, after which you will get the Kisan Credit Card from the concerned bank.

  • Soil Health Card scheme

    Soil Health Card scheme

    A Soil Health Card is used to assess the current status of soil health and, when used over time, to determine changes in soil health that are affected by land management. A Soil Health Card displays soil health indicators and associated descriptive terms. The indicators are typically based on farmers' practical experience and knowledge of local natural resources. The card lists soil health indicators that can be assessed without the aid of technical or laboratory equipment.

     

    Soil Health Card (SHC) is a Government of India's scheme promoted by the Department of Agriculture & Co-operation under the Ministry of Agriculture and Farmers' Welfare. It is being implemented through the Department of Agriculture of all the State and Union Territory Governments.

     

    Soil Health Card Scheme is a very beneficial scheme for farmers. There are many farmers in India. And they do not know which types of crops they should grow to get maximum yield. Basically, they do not know the quality and the type of their soil. They might know by experience what crops grow and what crops fail. But they don't know what they can do to improve the condition of the soil.

    The government is planning to cover as many as all farmers under the scheme.

    The scheme will cover all the parts of the country.

    In the form of soil card, the farmers will get a report. And this report will contain all the details about the soil of their particular farm.

    A farm will get the soil card once in every 3 years.

  • Swachh Bharat Mission Toilet

     Swachh Bharat Mission Toilet


    With the goal of making India open-defecation free by 2019, the NDA government launched the Swachh Bharat Abhiyan (SBA) programme in 2014.

     

    Under the programme, people living below and above poverty line can avail reimbursement for constructing toilets at household level. The programme has given a huge impetus to nationwide toilet building exercise.

     

    The SBA, currently, operates under a reimbursement model, where the households are expected to build the toilets from their own funds and then, upon producing the required documents, they are reimbursed Rs 12,000- Rs 15,000.

     

    Despite the SBA subsidies easing the process of household toilet construction, BPL households are faced with significant barriers.

    Under the mission, all villages, Gram Panchayats, Districts, States and Union Territories in India declared themselves "open-defecation free" (ODF) by 2 October 2019, the 150th birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi, by constructing over 100 million toilets in rural India.


  • Jan Aushadi Yojana

     

    Jan Aushadi Yojana


    INTRODUCTION

    With a view to achieve the objective of making available quality generic medicines at affordable prices to all, „Jan Aushadhi Scheme‟ was launched by the Department of Pharmaceuticals, Ministry of Chemicals & Fertilizers, and Government of India in November, 2008 across the country. The Scheme is being implemented through the Bureau of Pharma PSUs of India (BPPI), under the administrative control of the Department of Pharmaceuticals, Ministry of Chemicals & Fertilizers, and Government of India.

    In September 2015, the „Jan Aushadhi Scheme‟ was revamped as „Pradhan Mantri Jan Aushadhi Yojana‟ (PMJAY). In November, 2016, to give further impetus to the scheme, it was again renamed as “Pradhan Mantri Bhartiya Janaushadhi Pariyojana” (PMBJP).Accordingly, 'ensuring availability of quality medicines at affordable prices to all', has been a key objective of the Government.

    The Salient features of the Jan Aushadhi Scheme are:

    i. Making quality medicines available at affordable prices for all, particularly for the the poor and disadvantaged, through specialized outlets called the Jan Aushadhi Stores (JAS).

    ii. Provision of built up space for JAS in district hospitals by the State Governments

    iii. Operation of JAS by the State Government nominated Operating Agencies like NGOs, Charitable Organizations and public societies like the Red Cross Society and Rogi Kalyan Samitis, constituted for the purpose

    iv. Meeting the operational expenditure from the trade margins admissible for the medicines.

    v. Supply of the generic medicines in the first instance by the Central Pharma PSUs so as to ensure both quality and timely supply. However, wherever required, medicines could be sourced from quality small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) units.

    vi. To ensure prescription of generic medicines by the Government doctors with proactive support from the State Governments. The Key objectives of Jan Aushadhi Scheme are:

    i. To make quality the hallmark of medicines by ensuring supplies from the Central Public Sector Undertaking (CPSUs) and also through other Public Sector Undertaking (PSUs) and Good manufacturing practices (GMP) compliant manufacturers in the private sector.

    ii. Extend coverage of quality generic medicines, which would reduce and thereby redefine the unit cost of treatment per person.

    iii. Provide access to any prescription drug or Over the Counter (OTC) drug in all therapeutic categories as generic equivalents, which is not to be restricted to the beneficiaries of Public Health System alone but also to serve others.

    iv. Create awareness through education and publicity that quality is not synonymous with high price

    v. Create a demand for generic medicines “By All for All” by improving access to better healthcare through low treatment costs.

    vi. Involve State governments, Central Government, Public Sector Enterprises, and Private Sector, NGOs, Cooperative bodies and other institutions since it is a public welfare programme.

    vii. Develop a model which can be replicated in other countries of the world, in pursuit of their common goal of achieving affordable quality health care.

     

    Benefits of the Jan Aushadhi Scheme Campaign

    The Jan Aushadhi initiative makes available quality drugs at affordable prices through dedicated stores selling generic medicines which are available at lesser prices but are equivalent in quality and efficacy as expensive branded drugs. Some comparative advantages are:

    i. Promote greater awareness about cost-effective drugs and their prescription.

    ii. Make available unbranded quality generic medicines at affordable prices through public-private partnership.

    iii. Encourage doctors, more specifically in government hospitals, to prescribe generic medicines.

    iv. Enable substantial savings in health care, more particularly in the case of poor patients, and those suffering from chronic ailments, requiring long periods of drug use.

    GOVERNMENT ACTION AND ACHIEVEMENT OF THE SCHEME

    At present 1253 Jan Aushadhi Stores/ Kendras have been opened across the country which are covering 29 States/UTs and 419 Districts till 30th April, 2017 (provided in Annexure I & II).

    For opening PMBJP2 Kendras in Government Hospitals / Medical College premises, one-time financial assistance up to Rs. 2.50 lakh is provided as per the details given below:

    (i) Rs. 1 lakh reimbursement of furniture and fixtures.

    (ii) Rs. 1 lakh by way of free medicines in the beginning.

    There is no upper limit on Government subsidy. Even if balance premium is 90%, it will be borne by the Government.

    Earlier, there was a provision of capping the premium rate which resulted in low claims being paid to farmers. This capping was done to limit Government outgo on the premium subsidy. This capping has now been removed and farmers will get claim against full sum insured without any reduction.

    The use of technology will be encouraged to a great extent. Smart phones will be used to capture and upload data of crop cutting to reduce the delays in claim payment to farmers. Remote sensing will be used to reduce the number of crop cutting experiments.

    PMFBY is a replacement scheme of  NAIS / MNAIS, there will be exemption from Service Tax liability of all the services involved in the implementation of the scheme. It is estimated that the new scheme will ensure about 75-80 per cent of subsidy for the farmers in insurance premium.

    PRADHAN MANTRI AWAAS YOJANA-GRAMIN

    ABOUT US

    1.Public housing programme in the country started with the rehabilitation of refugees immediately after independence and since then, it has been a major focus area of the Government as an instrument of poverty alleviation. Rural housing programme,as an independent programme , started with Indira Awaas Yojana (IAY) in January 1996. Although IAY addressed the housing needs in the rural areas, certain gaps were identified during the concurrent evaluations and the performance Audit by Comptroller and Auditor General (CAG) of India in 2014. These gaps, i.e. nonassessment of housing The shortage, lack of transparency in selection of beneficiaries, low the quality of the house and lack of technical supervision, lack convergence, loans not availed by beneficiaries and weak the mechanism for monitoring was limiting the impact and outcomes of the programme.

     

    2.To address these gaps in the rural housing program and in view of Government’s commitment to providing “Housing for All’’ by the scheme 2022, the of has IAY has been re-structured into Pradhan Mantri Awaas Yojana –Gramin (PMAY-G) w.e.f. 1st April 2016.

     

    3.PMAY-G aims at providing a pucca house, with basic amenities, to all houseless householder and those households living in kutcha and dilapidated house, by 2022. The immediate the objective is to cover 1.00 crore household living in kutcha house/dilapidated house in three years from 2016-17 to 2018- 19.The minimum size of the house has been increased to 25 sq.mt (from20sq.mt) with a hygienic cooking space. The unit assistance has been increased from Rs. 70,000 to Rs. 1.20 lakh in plain and from Rs75,000 to Rs 1.30 lakh in hilly states, difficult areas and IAP district. The beneficiary is entitled to 90.95 person day of unskilled labour from MGNREGS. The assistance for construction of toilet shall be leveraged though convergence with SBM-G, MGNREGS or any other dedicated the source of funding. Convergence for piped drinking water, electricity connection, LPG gas connection etc. different Government programmers are also to be attempted.

     

    4.The cost of unit assistance is to be shared between Central and State Government in the ratio 60:40 in plain areas and 90:10 for North Eastern and the Himalayan States. From the annual budgetary grant for PMAY-G,90% of funds is to be released to States/UTs for the construction of new house under PMAY-G This would also include 4%allcation towards Administrative expenses .5%of the budgetary grant is to be retained at the central Level as reserve found for special Projects. The annual allocation to the states is to be based on the Annual Action Plan (AAP) approved by the Empowered Committee and the found to States /UTs is to be released in tow equal installments.

     

    5.Once of the most important features of PMAY-G is the selection of beneficiary. To ensure that assistance is targeted at those who are genuinely deprived and that the selection is objective and verifiable, PMAY-G instead of selecting a the beneficiary from among the BPL households selects beneficiary using housing deprivation parameters in the Socio Economic and Caste Census (SECC), 2011 date which is to be verified by the Gram Sabhas. The SECC data captures specific deprivation related to housing among households. Using the data households that are houseless and living in 0,1 and 2 kutcha wall and kutcha roof houses can be segregated and targeted . The Permanent Wait List so generated also ensures that the states have the ready list of the household to be covered under the scheme in the coming years (through Annual Select Lists) leading to better planning of implementation. To adders grievances in beneficiary selection an appellate process has also been put in place.

     

    6.Towards better quality of construction, setting up of a Nation Technical Support Agency (NTSA) at the national level is envisaged. One of the major constraints in quality house construction is the lack of the sufficient number of skilled masons. To address this, a pan-India training and certification programme of Masons has been launched in the States/UTs. This will, in addition, and career progression for rural masons. For timely construction/completion to ensure good quality of house construction, it has also been envisaged to tag a PMAY-G the beneficiary with a field level Government functionary and a Rural Mason.

     

    7.The beneficiary to be assisted by in-house construction with a bouquet of house design typologies inclusive of disaster resilience features the are suitable to their local geo-climatic conditions . These designs are developed through an elaborate public consultative process. This exercise will ensure that the beneficiary does not over-construct in the initial stages of house building which often results in the incomplete house or the beneficiary is forced to borrow money to complete the house.

     

    8.In PMAY-G, programme implementation and monitoring is to be carried out through an end to end e-Governance model- Using AwaasSoft and Awaas App. While AwaasSoft is a work –flow enabled, web-based electronic service delivery platform through which all critical function of PMAY-G, right from identification of beneficiary to providing construction linked assistance (throghPFMS),will be carried out; AwaasApp-a the mobile application is to be used to monitor real time, evidence based progress of house construction through date and time stamped and georeferenced photographs of the house. The tow IT application help identify the slip ups in the achievement of targets during the course of implementation of the programme. All payments to beneficiary is to be through DBT to beneficiary’s Bank/post office accounts registered in Awaas SoftMIS.

     

    9.The States have to come up with their Annual Action Plan of PMAY-That will include a plan for convergence in with other Government programme . The mechanism for convergence in PMAY-G is also to be strengthened through a system to system real-time transfer of information between the programme that are to converge with PMAY-G.

  • PM Ujjwala Yojana- INFORMATION OF GOVERNMENT SCHEME

     PM Ujjwala Yojana(PMUY)
    Scheme

    India is home to more than 24 Crore households out of which about 10 Crore households are still deprived of LPG as cooking fuel and have to rely on firewood, coal, dung – cakes etc. as primary source of cooking. The smoke from burning such fuels causes alarming household pollution and adversely affects the health of Women & children causing several respiratory diseases/ disorders. As per a WHO report, smoke inhaled by women from unclean fuel is equivalent to burning 400 cigarettes in an hour. In addition, women and children have to go through the drudgery of collecting firewood.

     

    Pradhan Mantri Ujjwala Yojana (PMUY) aims to safeguard the health of women & children by providing them with a clean cooking fuel – LPG, so that they don’t have to compromise their health in smoky kitchens or wander in unsafe areas collecting firewood.

    Pradhan Mantri Ujjwala Yojana was launched by Hon’ble Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi on May 1st, 2016 in Ballia, Uttar Pradesh. Under this scheme, 5 Cr LPG connections will be provided to BPL families with a support of Rs.1600 per connection in the next 3 years. Ensuring women’s empowerment, especially in rural India, the connections will be issued in the name of women of the households. Rs. 8000 Cr. has been allocated towards the implementation of the scheme. Identification of the BPL families will be done through Socio Economic Caste Census Data.

     

    PMUY is likely to result in an additional employment of around 1 Lakh and provide business opportunity of at least Rs. 10,000 Cr. over the next 3 Years to the Indian Industry. Launch of this scheme will also provide a great boost to the ‘Make in India’ campaign as all the manufacturers of cylinders, gas stoves, regulators, and gas hose are domestic.

     

    The launch of PMUY in Ballia was followed by launch of the scheme in Dahod in  Gujarat by Petroleum Minister Shri Dharmendra Pradhan & BJP President Shri Amit Shah. PMUY has also been launched in several districts in UP & Bihar.
