By 121 News

Chandigarh 30th May:- After a hectic week at work, Sundays then make it a perfect day to slip into your pajamas and watch your favorite romantic movie. To add to your Sunday splendour, &pictures, Naye India Ka Blockbuster Movie Channel, brings romantic-drama Sanam Teri Kasam on Sunday, 4th June at 3 PM.

Starring the handsome Harshvardhan Rane and the beautiful Mawra Hocane, the film is a young modern day love story encapsulating romance, heartbreaks and intense emotions. Melodious music by Himesh Reshammiya and powerful performances by the lead pair makes the film a perfect watch.

Directed by the duo Radhika Rao and Vinay Sapru, Sanam Teri Kasam is a charming story of a bespectacled plain Jane 'Saru' (Mawra Hocane)  who is rejected by all due to her simple appearance. Dejected Saru takes the matter in her own hands and reaches out to her dashing yet unruly neighbor Inder (Harshvardhan Rane) for a makeover. As luck would have it, their lives change when Saru's father renounces her due to a massive misunderstanding. With nowhere to go, Saru finds solace in Inder who is in process to transform her into a beautiful young lady. 

Sewa Kendra: An Act to Curb Bribery and Corruption

By 121 News

Chandigarh 30th May:- E-governance has become the governing mantra of our fast-developing nation. Digital India is a flagship programme of the Central government, with a clear focus on delivering citizen-centric services with the aid of Information and Communication Technology. Speaking on the occasion of digitisation of the Supreme Court of India, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that E-governance is easy, effective and economical. It is also environment friendly. And paperless offices will benefit the environment. 

The e-governance project had a significant positive impact on the country. The e-filing and e-processing of documents have replaced manual filing and handling of paper documents, making government offices paperless. This initiative has ultimately reduced the physical interface of the business community with the departmental officers and provides a corruption-free environment with improved taxpayer services.

Punjab, along with many other states, has been at the forefront of this drive to start and extend e-governance initiatives for the welfare of the citizens. Certainly, the decision of the Punjab government last year to set up Sewa Kendras in cities and villages across the state to deliver services expeditiously is a laudable one. 

There are 2,147 kendras across Punjab which provide about 67 services, including applying for various documents at one centre with a minimal fee. The kendras provide services related to birth and death certificates, arms licence, power supply bill, water and sewerage bill, tenant verification among many others defined under the Punjab Right to Services Act, 2011. They serve as a one-stop centre for citizens to avail a range of government services. There is a Sewa Kendra every 2.5 to three kilometres in urban and rural areas to facilitate citizens who were earlier required to travel 20-25 kilometres and stand in long queues for availing basic services. 

The Sewa Kendras can be transformative if allowed to continue. E-governance is national imperative; such a citizen-centric project should be the vision of current government involving local urban bodies in the state to mitigate the problems of rural & urban population. It would be interesting to see if the present government raises the bar above politics or choose to ignore the "Citizens FIRST agenda" or continue the hoary tradition of dumping projects in the name of politics.

To see worthy public projects through the prism of political partisanship is short-sighted. Sewa kendras employ about 5,000 persons. With e-governance, the corruption and the proportion of paying bribes have reduced from drastically. Such is the buzz created by its success that several states like Kerala, Haryana, Orissa, Bihar, Madhya Pradesh and Maharashtra have shown interest to replicate the e-governance model. It also sends out a negative perception to other companies interested in investing in Punjab while it is possible there could be some lag in the functioning of the Sewa Kendras, surely that doesn't necessarily have to mean rolling up the project altogether. Rather, the government should encourage improving the working, so that the process of empowering citizens is not disrupted. That would be an anomaly in the making of Digital India.

NGO Demands Higher Tax Slab Over Bidis to Save Precious Lives

By 121 News

Chandigarh 30th May:- Consumer and health activists have come together to show concern over how a lower GST rate for bidis than for cigarettes will hurt the health of millions. The national NGO Citizens Awareness Group, headquartered in Chandigarh has informed that while the GST Council is still debating the structure of rates, there is overreaching consensus that tobacco needs to be taxed at the highest rate.

While voicing his concern over the issue, the chairman of Citizens Awareness Group, Surinder Verma said that Bidis are mostly consumed by the poor strata of the society and keeping them under a low tax regime will not only be detrimental to public health but also anti poor. The central government should pay attention in this regard in its upcoming GST meeting to be held on June 3. We request that bidis should be taxed in highest slab of more than 28 per cent. Besides, It is disappointing that some states are in favour of lower taxation on bidis which shows that they are ignoring the health concerns over the commercial gains..

As per the relevant date over 1 million deaths in India every year are tobacco related and almost two thirds of tobacco consumers in India actually consume bidis leading to debilitating diseases and even death. According to a report published by the Union Ministry of Health and Family Welfare in 2008, Titled  'Bidi Smoking and Public Health', it reviewed 15 studies conducted in India. It stated that bidi smoking poses a very high risk for cancer and in many cases bidi smokers were at greater risk for oral cancer, stomach cancer and lung cancer than non-smokers.

Ashim Sanyal, COO, Voluntary Organisation in Interest of Consumer Education (VOICE) said that Bidis are the most commonly used tobacco product in India, accounting for 64% of all tobacco consumption. Also Bidi's are disproportionately consumed by the poor and contribute majorly towards the tobacco death which needs immediate attention since it is making consumers poorer. Hence law makers should put Bidis in the highest GST Rate slab to discourage its consumption and save lives.

The forthcoming 3rdJune GST Council meeting is hence a historic fiscal opportunity the Government should utilize to prioritize it's stated public health intentions- one of the fundamental pillars of the rate fitment exercise.
