Now, Apply For Passport From Anywhere In India

Now, Apply For Passport From Anywhere In India

Now, Apply For Passport From Anywhere In India
NEW DELHI: 
External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj today launched a new scheme under which a person can apply for a passport from anywhere in India irrespective of the place of stay.
The minister also launched a mobile application, available in Android and iOS platforms, that would have the facilities for applying, paying and scheduling appointments for acquiring a passport.
Under the new scheme, launched on the occasion of the Sixth Passport Seva Divas, a person can now choose the Regional Passport Office (RPO) and the Passport Seva Kendra (PSK) or Post Office Passport Seva Kendra (POPSK) for submitting the application.
The application can be submitted irrespective of whether the person’s present residential address was within the jurisdiction of the selected RPO or not, a Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) statement said.
The police verification, if required for a specific passport, would be conducted at the address specified in the application form, it said.
The passport will be printed and despatched by the RPO selected for application submission by the applicant to the address specified in the application, the statement said.
For example, a resident of Jaipur, who is temporarily residing in Kolkata, will now be able to apply at a PSK or POPSK under the RPO, Kolkata, and will not have to travel all the way back to Jaipur to submit an application for a passport at a PSK or POPSK under the Jaipur RPO.
This citizen-centric initiative of the ministry is expected to benefit the applicants who are unable to apply at a PSK or POPSK near their ordinary place of residence, the statement said.
With the launch of the ‘mPassport Seva App’, a person would not require access to a computer and printer to apply for a passport, the MEA said.
Ms Swaraj, while speaking at the launch of the initiatives, said there had been “revolutionary” changes in the process for applying for a passport.
There were 77 Passport Seva Kendras made available in 48 years, while 231 more were added in the last 48 months, she said at the event attended by Minister of State for Communications Manoj Sinha and Minister of State for External Affairs General (Retd) V K Singh.
Noting that at present there were 307 PSKs in the country, she announced that at least one PSK or POPSK would be made available in all the 543 Lok Sabha constituencies.
Ms Swaraj said unnecessary requirements for a passport have been scrapped since she took charge of the ministry, including doing away with marriage certificate.

The endeavour this year is to provide a onetime financial assistance to disabled soldiers who have been boarded out from service on medical grounds and are rendered non-employable due to their medical or physical conditions.

Indian Army recognizes the inherent stress and strain on such soldiers & their dependents and has well established rehabilitation programmes and beneficiary schemes but these require to be reinforced. The Government is considering proposal of major grant to establish a separate fund which can be further enhanced by contributions from individuals, establishments and corporate sector thus facilitating meaningful initiatives for disabled soldiers. 

Indian Army plans to create awareness on organizational support available to soldiers and their dependents with respect to medical, rehabilitation, various beneficiary schemes of Central and State Governments, vocational opportunities and assistance for their placement. Indian Army also plans to showcase talent of disabled soldiers by organizing sports and physical activities, cultural events and their art exhibitions. These disabled soldiers have inspiring deeds behind them, hence, it is planned to felicitate them along with selected organizations which dedicate in their rehabilitation.

Management of disabled soldiers is an onerous responsibility. Indian Army plans to galvanise due support for the unemployable disabled soldier, his wife and his family with initial financial support to ensure a life of dignity through partially-funded entrepreneurship venture.

HOW MS BRANCH PLAYS WITH CAREERS OF OFFICERS

, by indianmilitaryveterans


HOW MS BRANCH PLAYS WITH CAREERS OF OFFICERS



It has been known for a while now that all is not well in the Military Secretary's (MS) branch. It has been suspected for some time now that wrapped in secrecy, despite tall claims of transparency, the MS branch utilises the opaqueness to play with careers of officers. Why and at whose bidding, it is not known. But it may vary from case to case. And now it stands utterly and totally exposed. By none other than the Principal Bench of the Armed Forces Tribunal.

The bench of Justice AK Mathur, Chairperson of the Tribunal and the administrative member, Lt Gen SS Dhillon, have blown the lid off one of the worst kept secrets in the Indian Army. That all is not well in the MS Branch and a comprehensive review of how it functions is the need of the hour.

The scathing indictment of the most important branch of the Indian Army, as far as the officer cadre's career is concerned, came as a result of a petition filed by a Brigadier of the Corps of Engineers. Brig VG Gole, of June 1979 seniority, was shocked when he found out that he had not been empanelled for promotion in the selection board held for the rank of Major General in late 2010. As an officer who had been getting consistently good ACRs, he could not fathom why he was not selected.
And then he found out the reason. To his shock he came to know that the IO portion of his most recent ACR has been effaced, or removed from records in the selection process, as a result of which he fell back in the comparative merit. Why? Because of the following explanation given by the respondents when he filed a case in the AFT:

"A reply has been filed by the respondents contesting the position and took resort to a policy decision at Para 137 of Army Order 45/2001/MS which gives them power to efface the assessment if it is found that the ACR of the incumbent is grossly inconsistent or with inflationary/deflationary/ subjective reporting. This effacing could be done after due approval of the Chief of Army Staff. In this case, the ACR was found grossly inconsistent, therefore, IO’s 
assessment was expunged after approval of the Chief of Army Staff".

When the bench called for the records to see if this was true, they found out that this was not so. The decision to efface had been made arbitrarily. The bench found out that:

"We called upon the respondents to produce the original record before us and after perusing the record, we are constrained to observe that the powers exercised by the respondents is arbitrary. We have seen the ACR record of the petitioner from 2006 to 2010 and we find that during this period 
he has earned seven ACRs and has not secured less than 8 marks in any of the qualities mentioned in the ACR. We also found that the IO’s assessment in the ACR from January, 2009 to June, 2009 has been totally effaced. We do not know how much marks were given by the IO but at least we have seen the RO’s assessment in which petitioner was given 8 marks in 5 qualities while in the remaining 12 qualities he has obtained 9 marks. Subsequently, even in the ACR from July, 2009 to November, 2009 he has received almost 8 or 9 marks. From February, 2010 to June, 2010, we find that petitioner has again secured 8 & 9 marks in all the qualities. The explanation given by the respondents is hardly satisfactory. Learned counsel for the respondents has produced before us a minute sheet to justify their stand, but we regret to say that it is a totally arbitrary and if we may say malafide in law also".

The bench found that there was room for investigating into how and why the officer's career had been adversely affected. They asked for the officer responsible to be pinpointed and ordered that the Brigadier be considered afresh for promotion notwithstanding his impending retirement and also imposed a cost of Rs 10,000 on the respondents.

"It speaks volumes that such kind of illegality can be committed against an officer. This is a serious matter and we are constrained to observe that it requires deeper consideration by the higher authority and they should pinpoint the officer responsible who has played foul thereby affecting the career of the officer. We allow this petition and expunge the effacing of the ACR of the petitioner for the period from January, 2009 to June, 2009 given by the IO. The marks should be restored back and petitioner should be reconsidered for promotion to the post of Maj Gen in accordance with rules. The impending retirement will not come in the way of consideration of the petitioner for promotion to the post of Maj Gen. The petition is allowed with cost of Rs 10,000". 

If this is how the MS branch functions and if this is how the Chief of Army Staff goes about rubber stamping the illogical and illegal decisions of MS branch put up to him, then it paints a sad picture indeed of the Army hierarchy. How many such cases may have gone unnoticed in the past? What about the time when the AFT was not there? Such cases would drag on and on and the officer's career be marred for ever by the time he got relief, if any. Criminal, to say the least.

The officer holding the Military secretary's appointment at the time when this particular case took place is answerable to the entire officer cadre of the Army. He should be held responsible and action taken against him for such illegal action. And Chiefs of Army Staff must sign on the dotted line with their eyes open. Regimental loyalties must not come in the way of being fair to those who serve under the COAS. To say the last.

The article BELOW raises immediate questions like "kisne khaaya aur kisne khaane diya?" and also  "kisne khilaaya?".

, by indianmilitaryveterans

The article BELOW raises immediate questions like "kisne khaaya aur kisne khaane diya?" and also  "kisne khilaaya?". 

Since the figures span both UPA and NDA governments, one needs to ask some more questions like:
  # Who were the beneficiaries of these write-offs?  
 # How much loan amount was given to each of these beneficiaries, and what are their names?
  # Whose money was actually lost to these beneficiaries from which banks?  
 # What action was taken to recover these amounts? 
 # True that NPAs are a legacy problem based upon undeniable corporate influence on governance, but can Finance Ministry confirm (or deny with "true facts") the figures provided by ICRA?

 This is quite apart from the Revenue Foregone (through excused corporate tax, excise & customs duties) in successive Budgets by both UPA and NDA. The Finance Ministry might like to tabulate this data and place it in the public domain.  The Finance Ministry needs to place the bank fraud loss amounts (tabulated year-wise) in the public domain. The Finance Ministry also needs to permanently shelve the FRDI Bill, which seeks to take the savings of investors to bail-in truant banks or ill-managed or criminally negligent banks.  Finally, similar things are happening at State level too ... and this needs to be questioned.

  Indian Banks Wrote off Rs 1.44 Lakh Crore in Loans in 2017-2018 Loan write-offs by banks rose by a whopping 61% to Rs 1.44 lakh crore in 2017-18 from the previous year, data compiled by credit rating agency ICRA shows.

 New Delhi: Faced with rising delinquencies, the Indian banking sector has written off loans worth Rs 4.8 lakh crore in the past decade. Loan write-offs by banks rose by a whopping 61% to Rs 1.44 lakh crore in 2017-18 from the previous year, data compiled by credit rating agency ICRA shows. This data was first reported by the Indian Express. Public sector banks (PSBs) accounted for 83.4% of total loan write-offs by the banking sector during the decade. In the last fiscal too, PSBs’ share in banking industry’s total loan write-offs was nearly the same. Banks write off their loans when recovery will take longer than expected. However, the latest data shows that recovery of written-off loans has been less than optimal: for instance, government data shows that between April 2014 and December 2017, PSBs wrote off Rs 2.72 lakh crore worth of loans. In the same period, they managed to recover only Rs 29,343 crore – a mere 10.7% – of the loans that had been written off in that three-year period.

 Loan write-offs by public, private sector banks in the last decade FY Loan write-offs by banking sector ( Rs crore) 
 2008-09           2,165 
 2009-10         15,068
 2010-11         20,299 
 2011-12         18,248 
 2012-13         31,549 
 2013-14         25,424
 2014-15         52,947 the 
 2015-16         71,253 
 2016-17         89,048 
 2017-18       1,44,093 
 Total       480,093 

 Source: ICRA 

 In 2017-18, the SBI wrote off bad loans of Rs 40,281 crore in 2017-18,
 scam-hit PNB Rs 7,407 crore and
 Indian Overseas Bank Rs 10,307 crore. 

 Private banks too saw a jump in their loan write-offs in 2017-18. They together wrote off Rs 23,928 crore in bad loans, 82% higher compared to the previous year. 
Axis Bank wrote off Rs 11,688 crore and
 ICICI Bank Rs 9,110 crore.

 Private sector banks wrote off loans of Rs 79,490 crore over 10 years. 

 The banking sector’s bad loans continue to rise inexorably even as the Narendra Modi government and the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) pile pressure on lenders to go after big corporate defaulters. This has kept banks from stepping up credit disbursal to support the economic recovery. 
 Following RBI directive, lenders have taken a dozen corporate borrowers including Bhushan Steel, Essar Steel and Monnet Power and Steel, which together account for nearly Rs 1.75 lakh crore of the bank sector’s bad loans, have been taken to bankruptcy court by lenders. Several cases have been decided. However, lenders have been forced to take big hair cuts. The RBI has tightened its guidelines for identification and resolution of stressed loans in February this year to put pressure on banks to expedite recovery and clean up balance sheets. However, ICRA has expressed fears that the new norms could led to greater under-reporting of bad loans by banks. Total bad loans of banking sector is estimated to have risen to Rs 9.3 lakh crore at the end of March, from Rs 8.83 lakh crore at the end of December 2017.
