Reserving 33 Percent Posts for Women in CPMFs
There is no proposal to increase the percentage of women personnel in CAPF upto 33 percent. However, in compliance of recommendations given by Parliamentary Committee on Empowerment of Women in its sixth report, directions have been issued to all CAPFs to bring percentage of women in the forces to 5%. The force-wise details of women personnel at present are as under:-

Force/ Orgz’n Posted Strength Female %age of Women w.r.t. posted strength
CRPF 286892 6120 2.13%
CISF 126636 6203 4.89%
SSB 79049 1186 1.50%
BSF 248882 3534 1.42%
ITBP 80864 1570 1.75%
AR 65609 485 0.74%
Total 887932 19098 2.15%
 
To enhance the strength of women in CAPFs, Government is taking continuous steps. Some of these steps are as follows:-
  • In the ongoing recruitment of Constables/General Duty, out of total vacancies of 62390, 8533 (about 14%) are earmarked for women.
  • Government has approved recruitment of 2772 Mahila personnel (21 Companies) during the year 2014-15 to 2017-18 in Sashastra Seema Bal (SSB).
  • Government has approved raising of 02 Mahila (women) Battalions in place of 02 General Duty Battalions in Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) to be raised in the year 2015-16 and 2016-17.
Women personnel of General Duty cadre are deployed for performing combat duties like:-
 
(i) Gate management, Checking and Frisking

(iii) Interrogation and escorting of female apprehendees.
(iv) Law & Order duties
(v) Static guard duties at some of vital installations and also deployed during Shri Amarnathji Yatra

The First Meeting of ‘Kayakalp’, the Innovative Council of Indian Railways held

The first meeting of ‘Kayakalp’. The innovative council of Indian Railways was held today. This Council is headed by noted Industrialist Shri Ratan Tata. The other members of ‘Kayakalp’ Council include Shri S.G.Mishra, General Secretary, All India Railwaymen’s Federation (AIRF), Shri M.Raghaviah, General Secretary, National Federation of Indian Railwaymen (NFIR). Ms. Ragini Yechury, Executive Director (Industrial Relations), Railway Board and Dr. Madhukar Sinha, Executive Director (Innovation), Railway Board. Dr. Sinha will work as Secretary for the council. The Railway Board Members were also present on this occasion.

This Council has been setup by the Railway Minister in accordance with the vision of Hon’ble Prime Minister for Innovation, Technology Development and Manufacturing. The Railway Budget 2015-16 speech has mentioned that every dynamic and thriving organization needs to innovate and re-invent its practices and hence the council has been setup for the purpose of business re-engineering and introducing a spirit of innovation in Railways.

Speaking on the occasion, the Railway Minister Shri Suresh Prabhu said that Indian Railways, on one hand, has to fulfill its social obligation of providing affordable travel facilities to the public in different parts of the country while on the other hand, has to work as a commercial organisation earning profit. There is a need to balance these two requirements and function in a manner so that best services could be provided to the people at affordable prices and the Railways emerge as an effective engine of growth for the country’s economy. He said that while it is necessary to formulate a future roadmap for expansion and growth of Indian Railways, but at the same time it is necessary to understand and address present challenges which could not be overlooked. The Railway Minister pointed out that Indian Railways has a huge dedicated manpower which is its inherent strength. We all have to work collectively to make Indian Railways as No. 1 Railway in the world, so that it can serve people and nation in the best possible manner.

The Minister of State Shri Manoj Kumar Sinha hoped that the Council would give useful suggestions for improvement and innovation.

In his address, Chairman, Railway Board Shri A.K.Mital said that the Railway Board will work in close cooperation with the Council. He said that Indian Railways in its 160 years of existence has grown substantially in all aspects but it further needs to undertake more technological upgradation to improve services.

Shri Ratan Tata in his address said that the Council would work in close cooperation with everybody concerned and be on the same page for the betterment of Indian Railway and it would not be in conflict with anybody as there is shared objective of making Railway better. He said it will be useful to showcase improvements even in small increments in various aspects like equipments, processes, procedures, consumer acceptance etc.

In their addresses, Railway Employees’ Union Representatives Shri S.G. Mishra and Shri M. Raghaviah thanked the Railway Minister for reposing faith in the employees’ federations in undertaking the important job of the Council. They affirmed that the entire workforce of the Indian Railways would extend its cooperation in this endeavour.

Thereafter, the Kayakalp discussed the approach towards its future work.

Cabinet clears bill to check benami transactions

Cabinet clears bill to check benami transactions

New Delhi: The Cabinet today approved the new Benami Transaction (Prohibition) Bill which aims at curbing the generation of domestic black money.

“The Union Cabinet has approved the new Benami Transaction (Prohibition) Bill to curb generation of black money,” said a source after the Cabinet meeting here.

Apart from confiscation, the Bill provides for prosecution and aims to act as a major avenue for blocking generation and holding of black money in the form of benami property, especially in real estate.

The government had in Budget 2015-16, presented at the end of February, announced that it would come out with a new and more comprehensive Benami Transactions (Prohibition) Bill.

The Benami Transactions (Prohibition) Act was earlier enacted in 1988, but the rules under that Act could not be formulated due to inherent infirmities in it.

Following this, in 2011 the government introduced in Parliament a Benami Transactions (Prohibition) Bill, which proposed replacing the 1988 Act.

The Bill was referred to the Standing Committee on Finance for examination, which submitted its report in June 2012.

However, the Bill lapsed with the dissolution of 15th Lok Sabha.

Wait list passengers in Railway will be offered plane tickets

Wait list passengers in Railway will be offered plane tickets

Wait list passengers in Railway will be offered flight tickets: Indian Express News

Dropped from railway waiting list? Well IRCTC will now let you book last-minute flight tickets
For once, it might be a good thing to be dropped from an Indian Railway waiting list at the last moment. IRCTC has launched a new scheme that lets customers who have been dropped from a waiting list avail a last minute flight ticket at a “competitive” fare.

This is how the scheme works, as per IRCTC:

First you will have to have a wait-listed train tickets booked three days prior to the date of journey and not confirmed at the time of chart preparation. Only people with such tickets are eligible for the offer.

Such passengers will get an e-mail from IRCTC showing eligibility. They can then log in to irctc.co.in and choose the passengers name from the train ticket list and click flight search.

Again, this will work only if flights are available to the said destination or another in the same sector. If there is a flight, passengers can choose the next day button and book.

The passengers will have to make full payments for the flights and the refund for the train booking will not be deducted from the same. That will be refunded as usual.

However, be aware that these are last minute flights and you will hardly get any refund if you don’t reach the airport on time.
