Grant them your divine intervention in finding kidnapped and lost persons, help them in their search and rescues so that more people will be recovered safe and alive. And Oh Lord, I ask you to protect our officers home and abroad; may they escape death and injury.”It was a unique moment surrounded by riveting charges to dig deeper and reach higher, oodles of thanks for bravery and perseverance, congratulations on jobs well done and a moment of silence for a fallen police officer, Prince Smith, who was in 2005 killed on the beat. The Governor, the Deputy Premier, the Leader of the Opposition, the President of the Civil Service Association and the Deputy Commissioner of Police all addressed the scores of Police, Customs, Immigration, Fire Branch and other Government workers in law enforcement attending the high spirited service at New Testament Church of God. Bishop Rueben Johnson delivered passionately on a message of ‘Love’; we will have more on the annual thanksgiving service later today.

High Court Rejects Vijay Mallyas Plea Again

first_imgKingfisher Airlines (KFA) plea against United Bank of India (UBI), which declared the company as “willful defaulters,” got rejected by Kolkata High Court.In May, Kolkata-based UBI sent a willful defaulter notice on KFA including its board members. The KFA chairman Vijay Mallya, along with board members, was called before the panel on 27 June, which was later re-scheduled to 9 July.The grounded airline submitted their plea before Justice Dipankar Dutta to withdraw the notice by UBI and to allow them a personal hearing along with legal representative on the issue, reports the Mint. But the plea got rejected and the company was asked for recovery proceedings.”Justice Dipankar Dutta has given a positive judgment and bank’s concerns have been rightly addressed,” UBI executive director Deepak Narang told the Economic Times. “The judgment will be a guiding principle for the entire banking industry in the time to come.”It was not the first time when KFA’s plea got dismissed by a High Court. The Karnataka HC turned down a petition filed by the airline in December last year of a consortium of its lenders to take possession of Kingfisher House property.Even in April 2013, Bombay HC dismissed petition filed by United Breweries Holdings to grant interim relief to Kingfisher Airlines’ lenders from selling pledged shares of UB group companies. This company markets beer under Kingfisher brand and is headquartered in Bangalore, Karnataka.The debt-ridden airline owes around ₹6,400 crore to a consortium of lenders led by State Bank of India, including payment of dues to UBI of nearly ₹350 crore.In December last year and January this year, SBI and a UK-based aviation service firm, Aerotron, filed petitions on KFA claiming due of ₹6,203 crore and ₹37 crore, reports the Financial Express.The eight-year-old airline had shut down its operations on 20 October 2012 as the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) suspended its flight certificate.In February 2012, it received a notice from Airports Authority of India regarding dues of ₹2551 million. Since the last six months, it was operating on a cash-and-carry basis.last_img read more

A cold storage facility in Siliguri for Haringhata Meat

first_imgKolkata: In a bid to cater to the huge demand of Haringhata Meat in North Bengal, the West Bengal Livestock Development Corporation (WBLDC) has come up with a cold storage facility in Siliguri which will act as a central store for storing frozen meat.”We have as many as 35 franchises ready to sell Haringhata Meat in North Bengal. However, due to lack of cold processing unit in North Bengal, we were facing difficulty to supply to these franchises from our unit in Haringhata, Nadia. This 10 metric tonne facility will help us to provide quality meat to the people of North Bengal in a more organised way,” Gouri Shankar Koner, managing director of WBLDC said. Also Read – Heavy rain hits traffic, flightsThe same building with the storage facility also has an animal hospital with facilities for investigation of diseases and guest house facilities. The whole project has entailed an investment of around Rs 2.16 crore. Koner said WBLDC, which comes under the aegis of the state Animal Resource Development department, has also set up a pig breeding farm at Mohitnagar in Jalpaiguri. Around 1,800 animals will be produced annually there.”Haringhata Meat procures pig from farmers and in some cases, there have been concerns over quality. Now, we will have our own infrastructure for pig breeding and these animals will be slaughtered in our pig processing plant at Haringhata,” Koner said.

The pig breeding farm has had an investment of Rs 2.29 crore. WBLDC has a 3.5 metric tonne capacity processing unit of chicken and pork at Haringhata in Nadia. Frozen meat and a plethora of value-added products made from meat are sold in 230-odd outlets in the state, under the brand name Haringhata Meat. WBLDC is setting up a chicken and pork processing plant at Phansidewa in Darjeeling district which is expected to be operational by the middle of 2018.”All these projects will help us to cater to the gap of demand and supply in North Bengal and most importantly open up an avenue for export to North-Eastern states and Bhutan where there is a huge demand for quality meat,” Koner said.last_img read more

Khadi soot mala A unique ticket for Charkha Museum

first_imgIn the heart of Delhi, you can buy a ticket that, apart from giving you some pleasure, can give you a chestful of pride. For a mere Rs 20, you can buy a colourful Khadi mala at the Heritage Charkha Museum in Connaught place and can view charkhas that spun the earth fabric nearly a hundred years ago and helped determine the path of self reliance, which the father of the nation tread along with thousands, to secure us as an independent country and a free civilization. Over a dozen heritage charkhas are exhibited and a glimpse of the history of over a hundred years is showcased at this museum situated at Palika Bazar Park, just opposite Khadi India outlet. Also Read – Add new books to your shelfIf you take a deep look down this veneer of pleasure, you will realize that the ticket you bought is a building block of someone’s well-deserved livelihood. The ‘Khadi soot mala’ is made of wasted material drawn from Khadi and Village Industries Commission’ s (KVIC) Central Silver Plant. It may be noted that in a land from where Mahatma Gandhi kicked off his Satyagraha, i.e., in the silver plant at Hazipur in Patna, as many as 30 women are making these ‘soot malas’. Back in the heart of the national Capital, as many as 10 women are engaged in making these ‘soot malas’, better known as ‘Khadi Gundi’ as an entry ticket for the Museum at Gangaben Kuttir. Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsiveKVIC Chairman, V K Saxena has some socio-economic perspective behind this act of making ‘soot malas’, he says, “With a simple effort to bring out positive changes in the lives of artisans, we are providing direct employment to altogether 45 women, i.e., 10 in Gangaben Kutir, 30 at Hazipur and five in the dying work for the ‘soots malas’.”Every time you buy this ticket, you have a memento that provides momentous support to an artisanal family. Besides, even the women inmates of Tihar Jail, under its reformation programme, also get benefited from your purchase. Between May 2017 and January 2018, these ticket sales have fetched over Rs 20 lakhs. Nearly a lakh people have bought these tickets already. In a nutshell, a ticket at the heart of the Capital – besides giving satisfaction to the visitors of Charkha Museum, also builds some people’s lives elsewhere. And KVIC plans to turn the corpus secured from the sale of these tickets into a trust for the welfare of poor Khadi artisanal families, as this is a unique ticket of pride, sympathy and an invisible purpose of national support. There was never a ticket that so directly sustained livelihoods of most deserving people.last_img read more
