मोदी के शपथ के बाद निकले जुलूस में भड़की हिंसा, 12 घायल
बीजापुर (कर्नाटक) नरेंद्र मोदी के देश के नए प्रधानमंत्री बनने के जश्न में कर्नाटक के बीजापुर में निकाले गए जुलूस के दौरान दो गुटों के बीच हिंसा भड़क उठी। इस हिंसा में 12 लोगों के घायल होने की खबर है। अंग्रेजी अखबार 'हिन्दुस्तान टाइम्स' के मुताबिक यह हिंसा उस वक्त हुई, जब पूर्व मंत्री बसनगौड़ा की अगुआई में बीजेपी के कार्यकर्ताओं ने सब्जी मार्केट में कुछ लोगों को गुलाल लगाने की कोशिश की। अखबार के मुताबिक यह घटना शहर के गांधी चौक पुलिस स्टेशन के पास हुई। इसके बाद तकरीबन एक घंटे तक हिंसक टकराव हुए, जिससे लाखों की प्रॉपर्टी के नुकसान की खबर है।

This was the bjp guy arrested today Bijapur Clash: Cops on Lookout for Ex-minister Yatnal

BIJAPUR: Police say they have definite proof, including video footage, that former minister Basanagouda Patil Yatnal was responsible for Monday’s communal clash in the city. IGP (Belgaum division) Bhaskar Rao told reporters here on Tuesday that Yatnal has been absconding since violence erupted in the Gandhi Chowk vegetable market. Three cases have been booked against him and he will be arrested soon. About ten of his followers are also absconding, the IGP said. Rao said seven FIRs have also been registered against the trouble-makers. By Tuesday, 26 people from both groups were taken into custody and more arrests will follow, he added. He said Dharwad Superintendent of Police Lokesh is heading the investigation. Besides the Bijapur SP, SPs from Bagalkot, Gadag and Dharwad are also in the city to monitor the situation while the IGP himself has been here for the last two days. Rao said the violence has been pre-planned. He said a few vehicles were damaged and business establishments had suffered losses. Four people, including two policemen, were injured. He said 120 out-station buses were provided police escorts. He appealed to people not to pay heed to any rumours. Rao said it is essential now to undertake confidence building measures. The IGP said two groups had applied for permission to take out rallies to celebrate Narendra Modi’s swearing-in as Prime Minister on Monday. The BJP district unit had sought permission for a bike rally and sweet distribution programme which passed off peacefully. The Swami Vivekananda organisation, headed by Raghu Annigeri, a staunch loyalist of Yatnal, was also given permission, but with certain restrictions. Yatnal participated in this rally and violence erupted when it reached the Gandhi Chowk market. Minster Tours Affected Areas Water Resources and District Minister M B Patil toured the affected areas near Gandhi Chowk in the city on Tuesday. The clash was restricted to the market lane between Nehru Market and LBS Market. Patil told reporters on Tuesday that innocent vegetable vendors have borne the brunt of Monday’s violence. Basanagouda Patil Yatnal is directly responsible for the incident and it was all pre-planned, the minister added. He instructed the police to take action against the guilty. He said the Congress government is fully prepared to deal with those who disturb peace. He said the vegetable vendors should be compensated. Many vendors, especially women, complained about the complacency of the police. “We could have shut the place for a day if we were warned before,” said Jahannubi Inadar, a vegetable vendor.

New Delhi: Leading from the front and by personal example has been Narendra Modi's style of working in Gujarat. The new ministers got their first lesson on the “Gujarat model†of governance when they were advised by the Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions department of Personnel & Training to not appoint their relatives as personal staff. As per reports, the advisory, said to be the among the first documents signed by Modi after he assumed charge as PM, outlines rules that will have to be followed in the appointment of personal staff attached to ministers. The most important operative part of the order - ministers will henceforth appoint secretaries and other personal staff only from the "general pool". Is is probably for the first time that ministers are being nudged by a prime minister to keep their relatives away from official work

Low-cost housing, which found several mentions in BJP's 2014 election manifesto, is likely to get infrastructure status, making it easier for real-estate developers to get finance from banks and for longer tenures, and eventually increasing the supply of houses. While developers are in favour of an infrastructure tag to the housing sector as a whole, the government is likely to grant it only to the low-cost segment, said a senior government official, who did not wish to be named.

The new Union health minister Harsh Vardhan, who assumed office on Tuesday afternoon, promised that the government would work to provide 'health insurance coverage for all' through a national insurance policy for health. "The Rashtriya Swasthya Bima Yojana of the ministry of labour is working fine in some states but its reach is limited to BPL (below poverty line) families. I plan to rope in all economic groups and make the health ministry a sort of regulatory body for oversight on e ..
I am not in favour of taxpayer's money being used to push a one-size fits all health policy. From this morning itself, I have started contacting public health practitioners on the roadmap to ensure that available resources will be utilized more optimally," he said. Immediately after assuming office, Vardhan took an hour-long meeting with senior officials at the ministry to get a status report from them. The health minister said focus would be on operating the health ministry with full transparency, and to do that, he would move fast to put in place e-governgovernance systems in all government-to-citizens and government-to-business interfaces under the ministry at all its offices throughout the country.

Singh has also asked for current status of National Highway in Ghaziabad and numbers of government schools and college. "Is there any plan pending of regularization of unauthorized colonies? How many bus shelters are there in Ghaziabad? Is there any plan to increase the numbers?," Gen (retd) Singh asked. Gen (retd) Singh has sought details of 20 issues of Ghaziabad including infrastructure, electricity, water, medical facilities, educational facilities etc.
BJP leader also said in his letter that he was being approached by Ghaziabad's residents and on this, provide him the current status of water supplies across the district. "We have been reaching out to people seeking advice on the changes they think in Ghaziabad and the rest of west UP. A politician or bureaucrat has no right to impose any infrastucture on public. Such projects are meant for public and we should seek their advise and incorporate their positive suggestion before finalizing the project line," Gen (retd) Singh had said.

The new law and telecom minister on Tuesday hinted that his government may avoid retrospective taxation and provide stable policies so that there are no uncertainties for foreign investors. The comment holds out a glimmer of hope on sorting out the long-drawn tax dispute with British mobile operator Vodafone. "Retrospectivity in law should normally be avoided, as it is very evident that India needs foreign investment," Ravi Shankar Prasad told reporters on assuming charge of the la ..
The minister promised to focus on the National Judicial Commission— another commitment in BJP's manifesto —which is expected to ensure a broader consultative process in the appointment of superior court judges and give the political executive a say in the process. "There is an existing Bill on this. We will hold more consultations on this and consider it," he said. Under the current collegium system, the judiciary has the final say on all such appointments.

Piyush Goyal, minister for power, coal and renewable energy, has slammed the door on corporate lobbyists and agents, and sent a stern message to bureaucrats on his first day at office that such people should not be sighted in the corridors of power. His ministries have traditionally been high on the agenda of wheeler-dealers as they deal with intense lobbying due to opaque process, grant of mines to private companies, juicy contracts, heavy outgo of subsidies, recommendations for for promotions, land acquisition etc.
The minister said he should not get to hear any instance of liaison officers being entertained in the corridors of the ministries. He has even asked to bar their entry," said a source familiar with the deliberations of Goyal's meeting with bureaucrats. Goyal, who is seen as media savvy, also asked the bureaucrats to put more focus on formulating policies than talking about them. "The minister said that the emphasis of the ministry should be policy and process. Emphasising on a wholes ..

Lowering home loan rates top priority: Venkaiah Naidu Reference: http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/business/india-business/Lowering-home-loan-rates-top-priority-Venkaiah-Naidu/articleshow/35694550.cms New urban development and housing minister Venkaiah Naidu said his priority will be to ensure housing for all by 2020 and reduce interest rates on home loans. Acche din? Current ROI for housing loan is about 10.50% for most private banks and might vary from bank to bank. Will be interesting to see the reduced interest rate. Will private banks get it to 9.75%. Will this actually happen and will the reduced rates stay under 10% for ext 5 years atleast. The longer they stay below 10% the better.

more than reducing the interest rate for home loans , they should do something to bring the apartment prices down.. typical 1500 sq ft 3 BHK in ORR ( bellandur till HSR layout ) costs close to 80L is way too much for what it offers.. 1100 sq ft 2 BHK in BTM costs 75L easily .. for that kind of money i can quit my job and start a small textiles with 3 or 4 autolooms :P

Partly correct in the sense that SBI has the lowest housing loan rate. With one leading PSU bank, the home loan rate was 10.25 in Nov 2012. It reduced to 10.15 in May 2013, only to increase to 10.40 in Nov 2013, and further increased to 10.50 in Feb 2014. The effect it has on the principal:interest ratio is lot. When i read the news today i was feeling like Acche din anewale hai.

:omg: You are lucky dude. Here in Mumbai we get only 550 sq. ft. for 80 L. that too only in mid range apartments. In some localities the square feet rate it gets many times higher. Yes, the apartment rates are getting higher. However, i don't see them coming down. Reducing interest rates by even 0.25% makes a lot of difference imo. If Naidu manages to reduce the interest rates below 10% across all banks during the 5 year tenure then that will be great in housing aspects at least.

mumbai is a different story i guess in blore , now they r giving some freebees but builders r reluctant to reduce the price .. my cousin booked 1 apartment for 65L in 2010 .. he occupied last year , but now half of the flats r unoccupied but the builder is still quoting 70L

If the apartments are unsold it clearly indicates weaker demand. In Mumbai too a lot of apartments were unsold last year and the increase of interest rate was the cause for the demand getting lesser. The other reason is off course exorbitant prices. Only citizens can do the price correction to a considerable extent by not buying them at the over priced value. The other reason for the high property costs is that a lot of under table money is given to gov. officials by promoters/builders to get the projects sanctioned for various things like obtaining working license, water facilities, electricity sanctions , work completion certificates, registrations etc etc. This added cost is ultimately indirectly paid by the people who purchase the property. The banks are fully exploiting this over priced costing as well. I mean, banks now give 80% (resale property) to 100% (on new property) loans so buyers do not have to worry much about the cash money or their contribution. It is easy to buy a new property because of this factor imo. whereas in resale property purchase one has to put his own 20% as most banks do not offer 100% loan. I doubt the costing of apartments will go down unless some regulations are passed and corruption while getting sanctions during construction are totally removed or as i mentioned earlier if people do not buy highly over priced apartments.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday decided to abolish all the 30 ministerial groups to bring more accountability and faster decision making among his colleagues who head the various ministries and departments. There are currently nine empowered groups of ministers (EGoMs) and 21 groups of ministers (GoMs), which were set up to take decisions on various matters before bringing them for the Cabinet's consideration.

Have to say. I agree.
just like there are too many secular parties. There are also too many secular mainstream channels. Regardless of what view or political stance one takes from a purely business POV there is a market for viewers with centre right affiliations. Why not fulfill that?
