Delhi protests: Some defining moments at Raisina Hill and India Gate, when tear gas shells and water failed to deter the protesters who refused to vacate the area that houses the North and South Blocks including the Prime Minister's office and turned the area into a virtual battleground

BEFORE I REPLY I WOULD LIKE TO BOW OUR HEADS IN SHAME AND PRAY FOR THE SOUL OF DEPARTED VICTIM.

Mr. Khera you and I are discussing different issues of the same subject.I discussed the lawless and crossing Luxman Rekha while you are discussing the unfortunate rape and now death of the victim.
Let us hope that she becomes the soul searching of us Indian men .Why do we look on the other side when a woman is being molested, grabbed and goosed in buses and trains. Why do not speak up when eve teasing is going on.Are we not responsible for such acts
Sacrificing is necessity and she has given her life but breaking Law is not a sacrifice

This can be changed to large extent if there is timely JUSTICE DELIVERY system.One should be fearful of punishment,but exactly opposite is happening here.Punitive action is need of hour.

There can be no two opinions that the horrendous gangrape in Delhi and other crimes of sexual assault-- on women, children, foreign tourists and so on, elsewhere in the country call for a determined effort at preventing them. But, is the present discussion, concentrated on death for the guilty, fast track courts, tougher laws etc. an adequate response? Instead of retributive justice alone, should we not aim at closing the tap which feeds a mentality of only the lust, towards women. A mentality, which considers women as the object to be physically used, with no regard for a mutually respectful and healthy mental and sexual relationship.
If India is to prevent such crimes, we need to take a much closer look at what causes them. The beginning has to be made in the schools, where the civic studies must include a portion each year, devoted to equality of genders and a respect for the opposite sex.
Much additional training must go into moulding of all administrative and law enforcement personnel, to sensitise them into understanding a healthy, man woman relationship, based on equality and respect.
May be this has already been done and most of us not aware of it, but extensive studies need to be undertaken to determine if repressed sexual desires cause such crimes. If yes, the social factors which cause such repression, need to be identified and measures for avoiding such repression need to be implemented. Is poverty and lack privacy the only reason of repression as a stray opinion expressed by a social activist? Then why have even wealthy individuals been found indulging in such acts of atrocities on women?
I am a lay person but know for sure that ancient Indian Philosophy boasted of many women scholars in positions of eminence. The multitude of politicians, senior police officials as well as local bodies like Khap Panchayats, who want to restrict women on various counts, need to be aware of this. Social equality for women does not mean aping Western standards but means restoring ancient Indian wisdom. It will be ironical, if in the land of Khajuraho, a healthy, open man -woman relationship, shorn of hypocritic male dominence, is not accepted.
Although politicians of all parties have been found wanting in their response, Mr Rahul Gandhi's comment that " Any hasty decision will have undesirable consequeces", is an admission of total lack of thinking by the rulers so far,on the issue. Or else a decision now would not be called hasty.

These photos don't do justice to the nation. It shows how lawless we are and when the police tries to protect the Govt buildings., why riots. When the barriers has been placed as a Luxman Rekha why cross and try tom push the police???
No one can deny that police might have used moe force but it was provoked.
It is unfortunate that trouble makers from outside with view of looting took over and students were misled and all the efforts for justice for rape was diverted into this police brutality.
Why can we the citizen not be Law abiding????

Mr. Katyal, have some pity and empathy for the protesters who braved the chill and faced water cannon and batons. They left the cosy comfort of their homes to protest against the brutality of inhumans who perperated the heineous crime and wanted change. In a democracy, citizens have the right to protest and seek change. This cannot be achieved without some sacrifice. What right the authorities had to clamp sec 144 and order lathicharge. State is insensitive to the changing scenario and its mindset is still steeped in the british rulers. They try to quell dissenting voice by the use of excessive force. 'Ahinsa parmo dharam' is ok, state must know that it also has to work within laxman rekha,Indiscriminate use of powers and force will not be tolerated and anger amongst the citizens will lead to this kind of situation.

NBFCs allowed to migrate to new standard cheques till March

RBI extended the time for NBFCs up to 31 March 2013 to ensure withdrawal of Non-CTS 2010 Standard compliant cheques and replace them with CTS-2010 Standard compliant cheques

New Delhi: Borrowers from non-banking finance companies (NBFCs) have now time till 31st March to replace their old system bank cheques with new ones with added security features for their equated monthly instalments (EMI) payments, as the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) has extended the deadline in this regard for them, reports PTI.

 

In a circular RBI said that it has been decided to extend the time for NBFCs up to 31 March 2013 "to ensure withdrawal of Non-CTS 2010 Standard compliant cheques and replace them with CTS-2010 Standard compliant cheques".

 

In a move to standardise and enhance security features on cheque leaflets, the central bank had asked all banks to migrate to 'CTS-2010' standard cheques by 31 December 2012, which was later extended till 31 March 2013.

 

In effect to this, NBFCs accepting cheque payments for future instalments from their customers were asked to get it replaced with the new standard cheques.

 

"However, it may be noted that the residual Non-CTS-2010 Standard compliant cheques that get presented in the clearing system beyond the extended period, will continue to be accepted for the clearing but will be cleared at less frequent intervals," the RBI circular added.

 

Cheque truncation system (CTS) 2010, with set of minimum security features would ensure uniformity across all cheque forms issued by banks in the country and also help presenting banks while scrutinising and recognising cheques of drawee banks in an image-based processing scenario, RBI had said.

 

Several developments in the cheque clearing process, namely growing use of multi-city and payable-at-par cheques at any branch of a bank, increasing popularity of speed clearing for local processing of outstation cheques and implementation of grid based CTS for image-based cheque processing, also led to this directive by RBI, it had said.

What if the borrower refuses? The NBFC is stuck. Collection costs will go up.
