“I believe that it is important to ask this question to oneself. We often feel wronged or cheated and believe that a legal course of action will be right. But when you are coming from a feeling being wronged, you going to end up meeting a lawyer or a doctor or somebody who’s intend going to wrong you further,” pointed out Ms Mookhey.
“We should rather ask ourselves: 'Do I really want to get into litigation? Do we really want to fight against something or do I really want to put my energy, all my emotional charge into something else that I rather believe in,” said Ms Mookhey who has been involved in a tough divorce battle.
“I felt that had I been in different time and place I could have dealt with my personal life situation very differently. I may feel I am right and I need to prove that I am right and the law says this are my rights and this what I should get and this is what has been done wrongly etc. But those who want to fight legal battles also should know that letting go is also a great act. So, I would really want to suggest among the various things being offered at Moneylife Foundation LRC, one of the things which must always be offered is emotional counselling!"
A clarification on delinking Aadhaar account from disbursal of subsidised LPG cylinders would be issued within a week, the minister told the Lok Sabha
Consumers across the country can buy subsidised LPG cylinders without an Aadhaar-linked bank account, the government informed the Lok Sabha on Friday.
A clarification on delinking Aadhaar account from disbursal of subsidised LPG cylinders would be issued within a week, Petroleum and Natural Gas Minister Veerappa Moily said during the Question Hour.
As far as direct benefit transfer (DBT) is concerned, Cabinet has decided to delink Aadhar account from disbursal of subsidised LPG cylinders. Now, subsidised cylinders can be purchased without Aadhaar account, the minister said.
He said there have been some problems in DBT programme, mainly related to banks, which have been given Rs435 per cylinder (for subsidy) which is not enough since the subsidised price of one cylinder has increased to Rs700.
He also emphasised that the government has not increased the price of subsidised cylinders for consumers.
Under DBT, about 4.86 crore accounts have been made and around 2.06 crore households have received subsidised cylinders.
Regarding know your customer (KYC) norms for LPG connections, the minister said the government has already issued clarifications regarding multiple connections and would liberally look into the matter if required.
“If there are two separate LPG connections in the same address, it would be allowed if there are separate kitchens or separate households... A declaration has to be made (by the consumer),” he added.
