What are actions we can take against them , so these things will never repeat in future?
But what are the impediments to pulses production??? what to do to reduce the prices?
Though the people of metropolitan cities have proper amenities, most of them are well settled and we know everything about their life.they are very efficient and skillful in all the corners but they r not having peace in their life, they must run round the clock all the day.
MORE DEVELOPMENT------- HIGH DENSITY OF POPULATION ------ MORE CRIMES------THE RICH BECOME MORE RICH----- MAY GET MORE JOBS BUT MAINTENANCE ALSO HIGH.----- RUN FOR MONEY------ DAY TO NIGHT----- TENSIONS----- NO PEACE.
but in VILLAGES and TOWNS, there may be no planes and buildings but have peaceful life and survive with what they have.
NO PROBLEM FOR BASIC PROVISIONS---- HIGH BODING IN BTWN PEOPLE----- WORK PROPORTIONAL TO MONEY---- PEACE.
Why dont govt give a little salary to farmers. So that there wont be any sucides. Need much debate on solving agriculture problems.
Food products in India are cheap when compared to US, S.korea,etc.........We have 3 crop seasons, unlike in US, europe, Russia where for 3 to 4 months entire land is covered with snow. We have more than 15 lakh milch cattle..If we are able to increase their productivity we can 'SWIM' in that milk..we can export milk products, even domestically we can curb mal-nutrition & adulteration of milk...
We have tremendous potential......A little support from Executive can make wonders on this land
1. Covering revenue deficit.
2. Education and health institutions.
4. Help in Polavaram project
5. Help in Capital facilities
6. Incentives to promote investment
All the first five are being taken care of. Regarding investment, only limited incentives are offered. If AP can persuade Govt of India to give IT and GST / Excise exemption for new industries in at least backward districts, it will help.
India and Pakistan resolved Baglihar and Kishenganga project differences amicably. Why can’t our own states resolve the disputes without politics and violence? Each state wants to appear to be a hero to impress the voters. Adversity must be shared, and disputes must be resolved amicably without arousing animosities. Otherwise, there will be no nation left.
I hve three doubts about agriculture
1:-Every budget provide lot of money to utilise and development for agriculture, so y formers are going to commit suicide,
2:- in abroad agriculture universities and engineers invention lot new tech and breeds
Y not India
If in india already runs dis y shud we not able to take dat resources
3:- y not ask a single amendment for all states
Like rithu bazar, etc..... we shud not allowed brokerage and political background
I don't know English much if used any wrong words pls ...... thank u sir
Since independence our Indian govt had spent lakhs of crores on agriculture till now,
But we had seen many farmers who had attempted suicide and ended their lives.
Actually where our government is failing in reaching the farmers ?
What could be the reasons that are discouraging farmers to practice agriculture?
Ravi Thej Dantala
This would decrease the % employment in farming and increase the GDP.
There has to be a middle ground focusing a lot on how farmers can benifit from private sector
How can one implement new technologies without governments support?
In case of non-perishable commodities, all farmers need are storage and pledge loans so that they can wait for a good price. No need for distress sale
1. How to give incentive to people to willingly pay tax. Right now most people have no real faith in government, and feel that their tax money is wasted. They only pay because they cannot avoid it.
2. How to localize taxation and services in a manner that people see where the money is going in their locality.
Until these fundamental changes take place, new taxes and more powers to officials will lead to more corruption and more alienation.
As a principle, I believe inheritance tax is legitimate, and should be imposed to promote equity. But the challenge is a bigger one.
Let me make my case, with the advent of social media and the drastic drop in the attention span of the public given the amount of information, true and false, being fed to them, short term fixes are being favoured and supported in lieu of long term measure which is what governance and policy is about. Hence, jingoistic statements and favours are in vogue rather than well-thought concrete measures and the impatience in the populace is being fed further.
Keeping this new world in mind, what can the government do to combat misinformation and at the same time maintain the transparency that everyone deserves.
Also, the existing setup is inherently resistant to change with lawmakers passing laws and policies which further crony capitalism rather than accept the new realities. How can this mindset be changed and how can we encourage youngsters to not be fatigued by the system and rather motivate them and make them believe that each system has to evolve and it can only do so with everyone's participation and input.
In addition, if power is truly decentralised and brought to the doorsteps of the people to the extent possible things will improve. In a Resident Welfare Association, people act responsibly since the issues matter to them, the money is theirs and failure to manage things well will hurt them directly and immediately. This logic applies to governance. If at least 50% of public governance is localized with checks and balances, we can insulate decisions from the emotion and transience of skewed debate.
• Independent regulatory authority to prevent abnormal pricing and fixing of reasonable prices is necessary. Fair return on investment to seed producers and developers, and affordable price to farmers - both must be ensured by an independent regulatory authority. Lok Satta has sought such a direction from the Supreme Court in the application made in relation to the case pending before the Court
• Regulatory agencies in bio-technology need to be constituted only with individuals who are known experts with global exposure in the field. In order to prevent vested interest developing and to ensure keeping pace with changes in technology, the experts in regulatory agency should serve a fixed tenure – say, three years. No one should be allowed to continue for long term.
• Under Indian law, holders of patents are allowed monopoly of technology for 20 years from the date of registration in India – not 20 years from the date of first patent anywhere in the world. MNCs are using this provision to register patents in India only after commercialisation of products. Law needs to be amended to reduce such monopolistic tendencies. Also companies may resort to small, insignificant, cosmetic changes in existing technologies and file them as new patents to get extended patent life of 20 years. Safeguards should be institutionalized by patent Authority.
• All these and other necessary steps should be taken to protect our national interest as well as farmers’ interests. However, rejection of technology because of our unease with MNCs is like cutting the nose to spite the face, and is not an option.
i'm afraid that this kind of GM, which involves introducing a poisonous bacteria to the seed for increasing the yield, might kill all the medicinal properties of our traditional mustard.
1. Day to day governance improvement, reducing corruption & better services.
2. Greater autonomy, local government empowerment to involve people in issues that matter to them most, and a long-term road map for an innovative federal solution
3. Addressing the international problem in the long term and terrorist problem on daily basis.
J&K is a case of missed opportunities time and again. It needs time, patience, clear road map and long-term approach.
1. Have strict accreditation policy and close down substandard colleges
2. Create autonomous agency for rating and make findings public regularly
3. Allow top class corporates and global universities to establish universities here subject to credibility and quality
4. Scrap current model of AICTE, and revamp regulation, moving from licensing to rating and transparency.
5. Let there be exit regulation at the time of entry into profession.
Sir I heard you at IIM Bangalore couple of years ago. Yous spoke about many reforms that can be taken in the sector. 2 years have passed and we didn't see any of them being implemented.
Is it true that 'Is desh ka kuch nhi ho skta?"
There are a lot of technological advances happening around the world.
What in your view is stopping us from implementing integrated systems which connect to all the modules in the government related to civic amenities (like power, water, waste disposal, etc) and provide better facilities to the citizens.
This would enable optimal utilization of the resources(both personnel and machinery) and also brings transparency to the citizens on the work that is being done.
