UID/Aadhaar
No Aadhaar during Bihar elections
The Election Commission has removed Aadhaar from its list of identity documents during the ongoing Bihar Assembly elections 
 
The Election Commission of India (ECI) has removed the 12-digit unique identification number (Aadhaar) from its list of identity documents during the ongoing Bihar Assembly elections. On 12 October 2015, the ECI published advertisements in newspapers in Bihar removing Aadhaar from among the 11 alternative documents besides voter ID cards for casting votes.
 
 
Welcoming the ECI decision to remove Aadhaar as identity document from Bihar elections, the Citizens Forum for Civil Liberties (CFCL), "...the ECI's removal of illegitimate and legally questionable UID/ Aadhaar from its list of identity documents following application of its own legal mind and in compliance with the Supreme Court's orders dated 11 August, 2015, we wish to place on record our appreciation for upholding the natural, inalienable and fundamental right of privacy guaranteed by Constitution of India."
 
ECI's advertisement in newspapers on 11 October, 2015 had mentioned Aadhaar in the list of the 11 alternative identity documents. "We submit that it becomes quite clear that ECI has thought it prudent and legally appropriate to take this decision against Aadhaar," CFCL said in a statement.
 
The Forum said, "We submit that India's Aadhaar number generating national population register (NPR) for identity cards is admittedly following the footprints of identity cards that has now been abandoned in UK. There is a need to guard against ID card cartels and learn from the sad fate of such databases in Egypt, Pakistan and Greece. ECI must set up a committee to examine why countries like China, US, Australia and France abandoned such ID projects."

HONEY , I SHRUNK THE EVM !

EVM = Electronic Voting Machine

In my earlier blog ( 18 Aug 2013 ) , I had suggested that all Elections ( National / State / Municipal / Panchayat ) , be conducted using a Mobile App called,
VotesApp

Idea was to shrink the EVM to a personalized Mobile , which , everyone carries in his pocket
Entire process of how this App will work , is described in my blog
Now you may ask :

HOW WILL IT HELP ?


* No need for 930,000 polling booths / EVMs / Ink / Papers etc

Every voter's own mobile becomes a miniature EVM !

Any registered Voter can vote from anywhere in the World !


* Nor any need to deploy 1,100,000 people to conduct the polls


* No need for millions of Police / Military personnel


* No need for months of advance preparations, across entire country


* Voting can be completed in just ONE day - instead of over 6 weeks -
and results can be declared next day !


* Voting could be 95 % or more !


* No worry for booth-capture


* No bogus voting ( Bio-metric ID from built-in camera )


* No duplicate voting ( Self-destruct after single usage )


* No worry for any terrorist attacks


* Enormous saving of time for Voters


* No need to declare a public holiday - costing thousands of crores
worth of production


* Central Government will save, at least , Rs 2,000 Crores .


* For the Central Government , a potential to earn Rs 20,000 crores , by
enabling 15 million Indian businesses to advertise to 814 million voters
thru this mobile VotesApp ,

sharply targeting by Gender / Age / Marital Status / City / Street /
Education / Income Tax paid / Employed or Jobless ..etc


* No need for Central Government to stop taking even routine decisions
( due to Model Code of Conduct )


If a tiny country like Estonia ( population 1.6 million ) can elect its Members of Parliament thru a VotesApp type mobile App , why can't we ?

Already 900+ million Indians have mobiles - all of which , will soon become Smart Phones

As far as designing / developing of VotesApp is concerned , it is NOT a Rocket Science
Any IT / E-Comm Start Up , should be able to develop VotesApp in 3 months
On this Dussehara day , can you think of a better way for Good to prevail over Evil ?
A better way for " E-delivery of Service " ?

SEBI directs Sunheaven Agro India to refund money collected from investors
SEBI (Securities and Exchange Board of India) passed an order on Sunheaven Agro India and its directors directing it to refund the money collected by the company through issuance of Redeemable Preference Shares from investors, with interest at the rate of 15% per annum compounded at half yearly intervals. Also, it is not to access the capital market or deal in securities for four years after completion of the refund to investors.
 
The directors, as per the SEBI Order, are also restrained from associating themselves with any listed public company which intends to raise money from the public, or any intermediary registered with SEBI for a period of four years after completion of refund to investors. Its present directors, viz. Madhab Chandra Das, Khokon Biswas,  Provash  Bala,  Kanai  Lal  Pramanik  and  Shri  Ganesh  Dam and its past directors, viz. Suranjan Mondal, Kashi Nath Chanda, Mrityunjay  Bar and Pijush Kanti Jana are bound by the SEBI Order.
 
The company was engaged in fund mobilising activity through issuance of Redeemable Preference Shares (RPS), to more than 49 persons, without complying with the relevant provisions of the Companies Act, 1956.
 
The SEBI Order notes that the company had mobilised about Rs11.54 crore from at least 7,772 persons under its offer and issue of RPS and in doing so it has failed to comply with the provisions of the Companies Act, 1956. The SEBI Order also noted that the company had commenced the offer and issuance of RPS from 2009-2010 and continued with its money mobilisation activity till the financial year 2012-13.
 
Sunheaven Agro India will also be required to advertise in the press and give publicity to investors who have lost money, so that they come forward and take the refunds.

Nifty, Sensex precariously poised – Tuesday closing report
Nifty will be headed lower if it closes below 8,080
 
We had mentioned in Monday’s closing report that Nifty, Sensex are turning weak and that Nifty will be in a downward stretch if it closes below 8,115. The major indices in the Indian stock markets performed listlessly in Tuesday’s trading and closed marginally lower than Monday’s close by less than 0.25%. The trends of the indices in Tuesday’s trading are summarised in the table below:
 
 
Caution over the ongoing results season and weak global cues coupled with reduced chances of a future lending rate cuts dampened investor sentiment and led the major indices in the Indian stock markets to close marginally lower than Monday’s close. The indices had opened lower due to negative import-export data coming out of China. Even the healthy domestic macro data points released on Monday were not able to arrest the slide in Tuesday's trade.
 
The top gainers and top losers of select indices are given in the table below:
 
 
The closing values of the major Asian indices are given in the table below:
 
 
The European indices were trading 1%-1.2% lower and the US premarket futures were down 0.5%.
