Centre derailing NRC, says Gogoi

Posted on by

first_imgFormer Assam Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi on Saturday said the Narendra Modi government was trying to derail the exercise to update the National Register of Citizens (NRC) by disclosing data and attacking NRC State Coordinator Prateek Hajela.Mr. Gogoi, who had been the Chief Minister for three terms, said this was an indication that the BJP was not interested in resolving the foreigners’ issue.“The BJP government has focussed on certain districts to claim that the names of Bangladeshi-origin people have been registered in the NRC. If Hajela, conducting the exercise, is doing this, why is he not being removed or transferred? After all, he is not a constitutional authority but a government servant and is directly answerable to the administration,” Mr. Gogoi said.He reiterated that the NRC would end up as “waste paper” and leave out many genuine citizens belonging to different communities.  “This exercise will only be 50% successful. Many among the Bengali Muslims, tea garden workers, Gorkhas and others will miss out while some foreigners will be included,” he said.The Sarbananda Sonowal government in the State , he said, must ensure the inclusion of all legal citizens in the NRC.last_img read more

Indias economy big worry for PM Modi needs stimulus FICCI

Posted on by

first_imgA scrap dealer searches for useful material at a weaving factory, that was shut a year ago, in Panipat in the northern state of Haryana, August 29, 2018.ReutersIndia’s slowing economic growth is of serious concern and the country needs to urgently cut tax and interest rates to revive the economy, a top industrial body said on Monday ahead of the inauguration of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s second term.The economy grew 6.6 per cent in the three months to December – the slowest pace in five quarters – and the Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce & Industry (FICCI) said the bigger worry was that domestic consumption was not growing fast enough to offset a weakening global economic environment.”The recent signs of a slowdown in the economy stem not only from slow growth in investments and subdued exports but also from weakening growth in consumption demand,” FICCI said in a statement suggesting various measures the government could adopt in the next budget expected in a month.”This is a matter of serious concern and if not addressed urgently, the repercussions would be long term.”Narendra Modi – who won a thumping majority in the general election despite the agricultural sector’s economic woes, a shortage of jobs and the stuttering economy – takes the oath of office on Thursday and will need a finance minister who can help navigate through the challenges facing the economy.Some of the issues are slowing industrial output and manufacturing growth, slumping car and two-wheeler sales, and a drop in airline passenger traffic.FICCI said the new government should cut corporate and individual taxes, expand a programme of handing 6,000 rupees ($86) a year to poor farmers to boost consumption demand and consider tax concessions for export-oriented manufacturers.The Confederation of Indian Industry, another industry body, said it was crucial to reduce the income tax burden and expand the scope of investment allowance to all sectors, while higher incentives should be given to exporters.The FICCI also called for an interest rate cut from the Reserve Bank of India (RBI), as real interest rates have remained high for a long time with commercial banks reluctant to pass on the benefits of recent cuts.When PM Modi took power for the first time in 2014, global oil prices slumped. But as he gets set for a second term, rising oil prices could push the current account deficit higher.The body also said the trade war between the United States and China could further slow down global trade and hurt India’s already sluggish exports.”Amidst rising uncertainties and economic challenges on both the domestic and global front, there is an urgent need to re-energise the engines of growth and pump prime the economy,” FICCI said.”The upcoming budget…is an opportunity for the government to boost consumption and investments through appropriate fiscal stimulus and policies.”Government bureaucrats have started consultations with industry bodies, such as the FICCI, before the budget.last_img read more

8 of the Coolest Projects to Come Out of X Googles Moonshot

first_imgJanuary 23, 2019 4 min read Attend this free webinar and learn how you can maximize efficiency while getting the most critical things done right. Register Now »center_img Free Webinar | Sept 5: Tips and Tools for Making Progress Toward Important Goals Since 2010, Google has dedicated resources to Moonshot projects, forward thinking endeavors designed to solve the world’s biggest problems. So what has the Alphabet-owned company been cooking up?To start, it’s not entirely a surprise that a division with an emphasis on science fiction is intent on making robots a reality. Not much is available to the public on this particular area, but according to the X website, “teams are investigating how machine learning can be used to teach robots new skills that will enable them to reliably perform useful tasks in unstructured environments.” (Alphabet formerly owned Boston Robotics.)So all in good time, we suppose.Read on for some of the most intriguing projects being worked on in X, the Moonshot Factory.Related: These Are the 10 Highest Paying Jobs at GoogleMakaniMakani energy kites, which look like model airplanes tricked out with a bunch of propellers and have the wingspan of a smaller jet plane, are X’s attempt to better harness wind energy. They can generate up to 600 kilowatts of energy, which is enough to power roughly 300 homes. So how does it work? The M600 kite is attached to a ground station, and as the kite is flown, the wind moves through the propellers and the spinning action generates power, which is then sent down to the grid via a tether.Glass Enterprise EditionThough the company’s first stab at Google Glass proved that we weren’t quite ready to wear computers on our faces in casual social settings, the Moonshot factory is currently working on Glass Enterprise Edition, designed with manufacturing and outdoor workers in mind. The idea is that Glass can be clipped onto safety goggles or shields, so if something needs to be repaired, for example, workers can use the display to read directions.Free Space Optics This project is working to bring high-speed internet to areas that do not have access without requiring extensive digging and the laying of lines. Essentially, free space optics is the utilization of beams of light to transmit high speed data between point A and point B. It is currently being implemented in Andhra Pradesh, a state in India.Waymo As of the end of the 2016, with more than 2 million miles in the books — roughly 300 years of human driving, including the first ride on public roads — Google’s self-driving car project graduated from X. Now named Waymo, its first public trial is currently happening in Phoenix, Ariz.Related: Three Things To Learn From Google’s Workplace CultureWingDeveloped in an effort to increase access to goods and reduce traffic and pollution, this effort to create delivery drones made its first real-world deliveries in 2014, bringing first-aid supplies, candy, dog treats and water to farmers in Queensland, Australia. In 2016, it completed what was at the time the largest and longest drone delivery in the U.S., when students at Virginia Tech got air dropped some delicious burritos. The project officially graduated in July 2018.Loon  Project Loon was developed to try a different way of connecting people to the internet — instead of wires in the ground, a network of stratospheric balloons. In 2017, Loon worked with Spanish telecom firm Telefonica to provide internet connectivity to people in Peru who had to leave their homes due to flooding. After Hurricane Maria in 2018, Loon worked with AT&T and T-Mobile to get more than 200,000 people in Puerto Rico back online.VerilyThis team is focused on improving medical tech, developing prototypes for smart contact lenses that could accurately measure biological markers in our eyes, nanotech that could potentially identify and latch onto cancer cells and wearables that could tell when those nanoparticles found the cells and eating utensils that could help users with hand tremors or limited mobility.MaltaOne way you probably didn’t realize you could store energy was in giant tanks of molten salt and chilled liquid. But Malta does just that, sending electricity back to the grid when it’s needed the most. The team is currently at work developing a pilot plant to show whether the tech can be used at a broad commercial scale.last_img read more
