In Education on June 14, 2014 at 19:15

There are 110 Metric schools are in the market for sale in Tamil Nadu.

 

Of this one group of Institution  near Namakkal Tamil Nadu is on sale (with Engineering college) is expecting a price of 650 Crore.

 

 

The share of government schools in the total number of schools in India appears to be declining, with the growing interest amongst corporate entities

and organisations to enter the K-12 education space (primary and secondary), given the huge target market and profit potential(on February 14, 2014)

Education Rural India.

 

But,

 

With a median age of 25 years, India has over 550 million people below the age of 25 years. According to Census figures, over 32 per cent of the 1.1 billion population is between the age group 0–14 years. This means that the number of people in India needing primary and secondary education alone exceeds the entire population of the US. Since these students will be seeking higher education in India over the next decade, it illustrates the sheer size of the Indian education market.

The private education sector is estimated to reach US$ 115 billion by 2018, according to consulting firm Technopak. Technopak sees enrollments in Kindergarten-12th grade (K-12) growing to 351 million, requiring an additional 34 million seats by 2018.

According to a report ‘Education in India: Securing the demographic dividend’, published by Grant Thornton, the primary and secondary education, or K-12 sector is expected to reach US$ 50 billion in 2015 from US$ 24.5 billion in 2008, growing at an estimated compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 14 per cent.

Further, according to the report ’40 million by 2020: Preparing for a new paradigm in Indian Higher Education’ released by Ernst & Young, the higher education sector in India is expected to witness a growth of 18 per cent CAGR till 2020. At present, the sector witnesses spends of more than Rs 46,200 crore (US$ 7.68 billion), which is estimated to grow over Rs 232,500 crore (US$ 38.69 billion) in 10 years.”

 

 

 

A report has identified that the slow rollout of government schools as compared to private schools could be due to tight government finances.

With the growing disposable income of Indian households, education from private schools appears to be the preferred medium as compared to government schools, according to a study on ‘Indian Education Industry – Expanding reach and growing awareness to fuel industry growth’ by Care Research.

Robust growth

Rising income levels, rapid urbanisation, coupled with increasing awareness about the importance of quality education have resulted in the robust growth of the Indian educational industry. The report states that the network of Indian education industry ranks amongst the largest in the world, with more than 1.4 million schools and 35,000 higher education institutes.

With the increasing role of private sector in setting up educational institutes, especially in the K-12 and higher education segments, the market size of the Indian education industry was estimated at ₹3,83,310 crore during FY 2013.”

How come the sudden interest in Indian Education?

The market size.

Government’ encouragement of the private sector at the cost of the Public sector(Government schools).

The changes in Educational Policy in respect of giving room to Private Sector will not be visible unless you read between the lines.

First Rajiv Gandhi, then  Narasimha Rao and Manmohan Singh followed it up.

Uniform system of Education system was abolished.

Setting up of Navodaya type of Schools was encouraged.

The National Policy on Education (NPE) is a policy formulated by the Government of India to promote education amongst India’s people. The policy covers elementary education to colleges in both rural and urban India. The first NPE was promulgated in 1968 by the government of Prime Minister Indira Gandhi, and the second by Prime MinisterRajiv Gandhi in 1986. It emphasizes three aspects in relation to elementary education:

  • universal access and enrolment,
  • universal retention of children up to 14 years of age, and
  • a substantial improvement in the quality of education to enable all children to achieve
  • Revival of Sanskrit and other classical languages for contemporary use.

..Based on the report and recommendations of the Education Commission (1964–1966), the government of Prime Minister Indira Gandhi announced the first National Policy on Education in 1968, which called for a “radical restructuring” and equalise educational opportunities in order to achieve national integration and greater cultural and economic development.[2] The policy called for fulfilling compulsory education for all children up to the age of 14, as stipulated by the Constitution of India, and the better training and qualification of teachers.[2] The policy called for focus on learning of regional languages, outlining the “three language formula” to be implemented in secondary education – the instruction of the English language, the official language of the state where the school was based, and Hindi, the national language.[2] Language education was seen as essential to reduce the gulf between the intelligentsia and the masses. Although the decision to adopt Hindi as the national language had proven controversial, the policy called for use and learning of Hindi to be encouraged uniformly to promote a common language for all Indians.[2] The policy also encouraged the teaching of the ancient Sanskrit language, which was considered an essential part of India’s culture and heritage. The NPE of 1968 called for education spending to increase to six percent of the national income. As of 2013,the NPE 1968 has moved location on the national website’

 

What remains vague is the watering down of Compulsory education at Government schools, citing poor resources, opening up the private sector.

 

corporate schools.

 

Then why the scramble to sell off these schools which touted as he best and are the ones that produce 100 % results and state ranks?

 

It is ironical that he Tamil Nadu top Ranks in Public examinations are secured by Small Government run schools.

 

The Government indirectly encourages private schools at the primary level by not opening sufficient  number of  KG sections, thus forcing the children to go to private schools where the standard of education varies(CBSE etc)

 

Onec children get settled there they go later to  only private schools, thus forcing the Government schools languish .

 

Yet the schools want to sell.

 

These Institutions are/were stated mainly Politicians and others to convert Black Money into white and once the job is dome they want to get out.

 

Second they,underestimating the capacity to pay have invested very heavily on these schools.

 

Once reality dawns they want to sell off.

 

Education!

 

Where are you ?

Wife Children ‘Not Applicable’ Manmohan Singh Document

In India on April 22, 2014 at 11:04

 

Dr.Manmohan Singh, Prime Miniser of India, in an Affidavit filed to The Returning Officer for Rajya Sabha Elections , attested/accepted by a Commisioner of Oaths, Delhi, has declared  in the column marked ‘Names of Dependents’, as

 

N/A  ( Not applicable)

 

Rajya Sabha Affidavit of Manmohan Sings

Mnmohan Singh Rajya Sabha Affidavit.image credit. http://pbs.twimg.com/media/BlAfOuSCYAEqY3l.jpg:medium

 

Hope it does not mean Not Available!

 

This means that,

 

1.The Commissioner of Oaths had signed this with out Manmohan Singh being present, which is a violation, or

 

2.Manmohan Singh really means NA or Not Available

 

3.He  does not have The permission to Declare or

 

4.He had it filled up by some one,which is more likely, signed blindly

 

or a combination of all these.

 

Narendra  Modi married?

 

BJP on  Saturday claimed Prime Minister Manmohan Singh had not mentioned his wife’s name in the affidavit submitted along with nomination he filed as a Rajya Sabha candidate, as the party sought to blunt Congress’attack on Narendra Modi over his marital status.

“This is Manmohan Singh’s affidavit that was put before the Rajya Sabha (Returning Officer). He has not put his wife’s name in that affidavit. Why should we talk about such issues?” BJP spokesman Ravishankar Prasad told a press meet here while waving a copy of what he claimed was the PM’s affidavit.

Prasad did not say the affidavit was from which year, but Gujarat BJP leaders claimed it was filed in 2013 when Singh was re-elected to the Upper House of Parliament.

“This country has been following a tradition that personal issues are not raised in public. His (Modi’s) elder brother made a statement that he had left his home and family life to serve the country,” he said.

Prasad was answering a volley of questions related to Modi’s affidavit, submitted along with nomination paper filed from Vadodara Lok Sabha constituency, where for the first time he revealed he is married.

Launching a counter-attack on Congress Vice-President Rahul Gandhi, who had on Friday referred to Modi’s personal life, Prasad said, “Rahul Gandhi’s understanding is very limited and people of the country have understood it.”

2 G Hawala Dealer Linked To Sonia Gandhi, IT Dept.

In Corruption on April 17, 2014 at 18:55

 

The Sonia Gandhi Link to 2 G Spectrum Scam was pointed out by Subramanaian Swamy , when he sought the sanction from The Prime Minster

Manmohan Singh, to prosecute Sonia Gandhi.

 

Excerpts of the letter .

 

Sonia Gandhi

Sonia Gandhi, Chair person UPA

 

November 24, 2010.

Dr. Manmohan Singh,
Prime Minister of India,
South Block,
New Delhi.

Dear Prime Minister:

You may by now have realized that the 2G Spectrum scandal is not only bad for the country in the dimension of corruption, but now it emerges that there is a national security dimension too. The RAW, IB, CBI, ED all have enough material which they may have placed before you regarding the dubious aspects of the principal player in this scam.

According to my information two sisters, Anushka and Nadia, of Ms. Sonia Gandhi had received sixty percent of the kickbacks in this deal i.e. Rs.18,000 crores each. The frequent travel of Sonia Gandhi and her immediate family to Malaysia, Hong Kong, Dubai and parts of Europe including London requires to be probed under the law. What requires your special attention is the mode of the travel, not by commercial airliners, but by jets provided by the corporate sector which itself is illegal under the DGCA Rules. I find that often Ms. Sonia Gandhi and family have traveled to Dubai and then traveled onwards on private jets provided by dubious Arab business interests to Europe. It is not clear on what passport they have traveled. In Dubai they were felicitated by agencies of countries which are hostile to India including that of Pakistan.”

See more information at the Link provided a the bottom of this post.

 

Latest Development.

 The British Revenue Intelligence Authority alerted the Indian Income Tax Authority that an Indian businessman was transferring huge amount of money from Dubai to London ,couple of moths ago.

 

The Income Tax authorities tapped his telephone.

 

A raid was on  after  over two months of call recordings. 



In the 520 hours of call recordings, names of four cabinet ministers, a political leader allegedly very close to 10 Janpath and many big corporates linked to 2G scam have surfaced, as per sources.

The 520 hours phone recordings in digital format is stored in DGIT office at Jhandewalan.

 

According to the source, a former CBI director had rented out his house (C-134, Defence Colony), registered in his mother’s name to Moin Qureshi, a Hawala Dealer for office space. The bribe money, which the former CBI director received from a corporate named in 2G case, is allegedly routed by Qureshi via Dubai-London route.

The IT department has also searched two other offices in Defence Colony D-318 and D-268. D-318 which are being operated as the office  of a famous school’s Old Boys’ Association.l in Uttakhand- Qureshi is the President.


Cabinet minister RPN Singh is the Vice President of the association.

 

The IT authority is certain that the businessman allegedly holds assets on behalf of powerful government officials. The prime accused in this case is former CBI director whose name has come under scrutiny. The seized documents show Qureshi was allegedly working as a middleman on behalf of this CBI director and in many sensitive cases the accused have paid huge bribes, which were traced to Dubai bank accounts. A number of seized lockers have been opened and the contents show Qureshi had a cosy relationship with the former CBI director and a powerful political secretary in town. Interestingly, this former CBI director was handling sensitive cases related to the 2G scam, the coal scam and other headline-grabbing cases where allegations were raised that the investigations never reached logical end.

From the seized documents and Qureshi’s telephonic conversations it is evident that he was in touch with several powerful businessmen who were facing various kinds of CBI investigations. He was playing the role of a middleman in settling these cases in exchange of huge monetary benefits.
IT sleuths suspect that businessmen have paid huge bribes which were transferred through hawala channel. The former CBI director’s daughter is based out of Paris and runs a jewellery shop.

 

The 60-day long raid and survey by the IT department on alleged Hawala operator and meat exporter Moin Qureshi ended Tuesday exposing links with cabinet ministers and a political leader allegedly very close to 10 Janpath.

Since its first raid on February 16, 2014, the IT department has so far raided various locations at Delhi, Gurgaon, Noida and a farmhouse at Chhatarpur belonging to Moin Qureshi.

According to sources, the department seized over Rs 6 crores in cash and 20 lockers in the name of Qureshi’s employees during its first raid. Later during interrogation, Qureshi is said to have admitted that lockers belonged to him which had huge cash deposit.

The raid followed after IT officials intercepted over two months of call recordings. 

In the 520 hours of call recordings, names of four cabinet ministers, a political leader allegedly very close to 10 Janpath and many big corporates linked to 2G scam have surfaced, as per sources.”

Story:

Do you know there is a 500 page report prepared by an inquiry committee headed by myself? When I placed the report in Parliament, have you heard any single Opposition leader give a notice for discussion?’

‘Why are they not demanding a discussion in Parliament on the report? They could have established that there was a scam. Today, a Parliament Committee report is as good as a Parliament report and this report says the 2G scam is no scam. Our government is suffering because of the media hype on these scams,’ Congress MP P C Chacko tells Rediff.com‘s Shobha Warrier.

P C Chacko, the Congress MP from Thrissur, was the Chairman of the Joint Parliamentary Committee that probed the 2G scam.

Taking time off from canvassing for the Lok Sabha election, Chacko, below, left, spoke to Rediff.com‘s Shobha Warrier over the telephone on various issues ranging from the 2G scam to forming the United Progressive Alliance 3.

At a press conference you said the prime minister was responsible for the UPA getting a bad image as he never spoke to the media or tried to talk about the good things the UPA had done. Do you hold Dr Manmohan Singh solely responsible for the UPA’s bad image?

No. In fact, my statement was only partially reported. I was explaining the UPA’s achievements in the last 10 years. Somebody asked me why our party was on the defensive. I said we could not sell our achievements properly.

Then he asked me, whose failure is it? What I said was: From the prime minister to every member of our party, is responsible.

Our achievements should have reached the people, and if we couldn’t do so, it is our failure.

We were not communicative as we should have been, and it was a collective failure. I never blamed the prime minister.

I also said, we would form the next government, UPA 3.

You spoke of the UPA’s achievements. There were so many scams. Almost everyday, one scam or the other was being reported…

Instead he attacked the PM and said that Manmohan Singh was silent and did not accept the PMO recommendations. “It must be fair to say that issues enumerated by the CBI and CAG were not presented by the government in front of appropriate forums,” Raja said. When asked whether Manmohan Singh and Finance Minister P Chidambaram should be questioned in the case, Raja said that it was upto the CBI to question them. “The CBI should decided who should be called and who should not be called for questioning in the 2G scam case,” he said. Raja also said that there was a parallel case which was not taken up by the CBI or the CAG. “Unsigned note was given to PM by telecom corporates regarding spectrum auction and how subscriber criteria can be devised,” he said.
