The main difference is the agri diploma teaches only about agriculture, whereas agri engineering trains on both agriculture and farm mechanization, the students informed. Advertise With Us “When the government is boasting about encouraging farm mechanization, it should also encourage the agri engineers too”, the students observed. He further added that, “There are jobs in government for agriculture polytechnic diploma holders. We are asking the government to consider the agriculture engineering polytechnic diploma holders also for it”.last_img read more

Bharat producer Atul Agnihotri on Priyanka Chopras exit She still hasnt texted

first_imgSalman Khan and Priyanka ChopraSEBASTIAN D’SOUZA/AFP/Getty ImagesSoon after Priyanka Chorpa had walked out of Salman Khan starrer Bharat, Katrina Kaif was brought in to fill in the shoes of the leading lady of the film. Director Ali Abbas Zafar wanted Priyanka and Salman to reunite after a decade but things were not meant to happen as it should’ve been. However, producer Atul Agnihotri is happy with the way Bharat has taken shape. But he just couldn’t let go Priyanka from conveying things that bothered him.Priyanka was supposed to start shooting for Bharat days before she informed Arpita Khan Sharma about her exit which was later conveyed to Salman and the film’s team. But she didn’t inform Atul and still haven’t.”Priyanka still hasn’t texted me. She never spoke to me about walking out of Bharat. It was a message I received on the set. I was like, ‘It’s okay, yeh ho gaya. But let’s now fix it’. The news came to me via people,” Atul Agnihotri told Pinkvilla.He added, “I understand she was getting married and was in love. So, it’s okay because that’s the bigger decision of her life. Of course, it’s great to discover and find love and it’s even better to marry the person you love. I wish her all the best for her life. That one day, I could have felt a little different, but at the end of it, when you see things from the hindsight, it’s fine.”Recently, even Salman took a dig at Priyanka when he along with Katrina were interacting with their fans in a Facebook live video. But as they say, let bygones be bygones.last_img read more

GST needs major rate structure revamp says Hasmukh Adhia

first_imgIndia’s Financial Services Secretary Hasmukh Adhia answers a question during a news conference in New Delhi, India August 14, 2015.REUTERS/Adnan Abidi/File photoRevenue secretary Hasmukh Adhia believes that the new goods and services tax (GST) regime has been well-established, and a complete overhaul of the tax rates is now required to reduce the burden on small and medium businessesIn an interview to PTI, Adhia said, “There is a complete overhauling that is required. It is possible that some items in the same chapter are divided. So ideally we should do harmonisation of items chapter wise and wherever we find there is a big burden on small and medium businesses and on common man, we have to bring them down (and) then only there will be a better compliance, a better acceptability of GST.”The revenue secretary, however, said the overhauling would require some calculations by the fitment committee, which will decide which items need a rationalisation of rate under the GST regime.It’s almost four months since the new tax regime was rolled out, which merged various indirect taxes into one. But under GST, both common people and businesses are facing major difficulties and compliance issues.GST Council—the highest decision-making body of GST implementations has already made several changes. To ease hassles facing medium and small businesses in paying taxes and filing GST returns, it has tweaked various aspects of the new indirect tax regime to make it industry-friendly.To address growing criticism, earlier this month, the government eased tax rules for small and medium-sized companies. It said small businesses would be allowed to file tax returns once a quarter instead of every month.”The committee will work on it for a month and then we will try and bring something as early as in Guwahati or later on,” Adhia told PTI.The GST council is scheduled to hold its 23rd meeting in Guwahati on 10 November, the meeting will be chaired by Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley and will comprise of representatives of all states.”We are very keen to do it as early as possible, it depends on how much time the fitment committee takes to work on it. They need data, calculate revenue loss. They need various comparisons. But harmonisation has to be done. A complete review has to be done,” the revenue secretary said.last_img read more

Congressional Republicans Race To Minimize Damage From Trump Family Separation Policy

first_img Share Chip Somodevilla/Getty ImagesPresident Trump presides over a meeting about immigration with Republican and Democratic members of Congress at the White House on Tuesday. Congress and the White House are trying to work out an immigration deal prior to Jan. 19.Updated at 2:20 p.m. ETCongressional Republicans are racing to find legislative options to stop a White House policy of separating migrant children from their parents at the U.S. border amid widespread condemnation of the practice.Republicans in both the House and the Senate began ramping up pressure on the White House to reverse the policy Monday amid outcry about children being housed in detention centers after being separated from their parents. President Trump is scheduled to meet with House Republicans on immigration Tuesday evening and lawmakers expect the family separation issue to be a prominent part of that conversation.Trump further complicated the already chaotic atmosphere around immigration Tuesday afternoon when he seemed to dismiss some nascent proposals to change the policy and vowed to change House GOP legislation if it is passed.Trump told an audience at the National Federation of Independent Businesses that current law gives his administration only two options for handling people who cross the border illegally: “Totally open borders or criminal prosecution.”“What I’m asking Congress to do is to give us a third option which we have been requesting last year,” Trump said. “The legal authority to detain and properly remove families together as a unit.”Many in Congress, including many Trump supporters, say he is wrong. A growing number of Republicans have pushed back, including Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, who is circulating a letter to urge the White House to suspend the policy immediately to give Congress time to address the issue.The clash is the latest flare-up in what has become a nearly monthlong drama within the Republican party over immigration. Trump’s latest demands add even greater pressure on congressional Republicans to pass legislation despite deep, long-standing divides within the party over how to handle both legal and illegal immigration.Many Republicans worry that it could take Congress weeks or more to craft a bill that can pass both the House and the Senate. Congress has not been able to pass comprehensive immigration legislation for several decades. One hurdle this week is that Republicans can’t agree if they should fix the family separation issue on its own or include it in a broader bill — like spending legislation or a more comprehensive immigration policy overhaul.“Congress doesn’t have the best track record in moving quickly on things like this,” said Arkansas Republican Sen. Tom Cotton.The House is expected to vote later this week on a pair of immigration proposals that are expected to address the issue of family separation but it isn’t clear that either bill has the votes to pass. Many Republicans say privately that they are concerned that a failure to act quickly will result in a prolonged crisis and public outrage. And this latest internal battle over the issue comes months before the November midterms. GOP lawmakers want to tout economic numbers and their tax cut bill, but the president is keeping the spotlight on the contentious issue of immigration instead.The result has been a haphazard series of targeted legislative proposals from different factions of the GOP that address pieces of the problem, instead of a broader immigration overhaul effort.Texas Sen. Ted Cruz was among the first Republicans to say he will introduce legislation which would double the number of federal immigration judges to 750, expand detention facilities with temporary shelters and expedite processing for asylum claims while mandating that families be housed together during the proceedings.“It is a solution that guarantees that children stay with their parents and also provides funding and expedited processes so claims of asylum can be adjudicated and adjudicated promptly,” Cruz told reporters Tuesday. “I believe all of us need to come together and solve this problem. Nobody wants to see children pulled away from their parents.”But Trump seemed to dismiss that proposal on Tuesday, and others like it in his speech on Tuesday afternoon.“Ultimately we need to have a real border, not judges,” Trump said. “Thousands and thousands of judges they want to hire. Who are these people?”Increased judicial capacity is the cornerstone of several of the plans circulating among Republicans. Trump’s statement raises fresh doubts that he will sign any solution that is reached.Senate GOP leaders are hoping to craft a consensus plan in the coming days, according to GOP sources. Other senators, including Sens. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., and John Cornyn, R-Texas, also say they are working on legislation.Cornyn, the number two Republican in the Senate, in particular has great sway within Senate GOP circles, and is working with Rep. Henry Cuellar, D-Texas, on a bill to expedite hearings and keep families together.“I don’t think we should have to choose between enforcing the law and keeping families together,” Cornyn said. “I think we can do both.”Cornyn was among the first senators to agree with the White House position that Congress has a responsibility to address the issue.Another proposal from conservative House Freedom Caucus Chairman Rep. Mark Meadows, R-N.C., would keep families together while cracking down on the rules for those seeking asylum. Meadows announced the proposal at an informal press conference at the White House on Tuesday following a meeting with Trump.“By cutting down on asylum fraud, we can keep families together without running a greater risk of traffickers or violent criminals using children to take advantage of the rules,” Meadows said in a statement. “We need to better enforce our immigration laws, but we can do so while keeping parents and children together.”Meadows said his bill is a backup plan if the House fails to pass broader immigration proposals this week.Democrats are not backing any of the Republican efforts to end family separation. House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer, D-Md., dismissed language in the broader House Republican immigration bill, saying it “doesn’t deal with the issue.” He said Democrats want to see an up-or-down vote on a stand-alone bill along the lines of the measure introduced by California Sen. Diane Feinstein, and supported by all 49 Senate Democrats.Feinstein’s proposal hasn’t gained traction among most Republicans, in part because it includes pointed language some view as political.“An agency may not remove a child from a parent or legal guardian solely for the policy goal of deterring individuals from migrating to the United States,” the bill says. “Or for the policy goal of promoting compliance with civil immigration laws.”Top Republicans have dismissed that bill as insufficient.“It doesn’t solve the real problem,” Cornyn said.But Colorado GOP Rep. Mike Coffman, who is facing pressure to act as one of the most vulnerable House GOP members facing re-election this fall, tweeted that he was supportive of the Democratic bill.House Republican leaders are primarily still focused on upcoming votes on a pair of broader immigration bills. The first bill up for a vote on Thursday will be a hard-line conservative proposal written by House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., that is expected to fail. The second bill is a compromise between conservatives and centrists that has been brokered by House GOP leaders. That bill has a slightly better odds, though leaders have stopped short of promising it will pass.Support for the compromise bill may hinge on what Trump tells House GOP members at the closed-door meeting Tuesday night. Many members are wary of supporting any immigration bill following a chaotic week where Trump appeared to switch his position on immigration several times.Some members fear that Trump has a history of mercurial support for policies, like the omnibus spending bill earlier this year and during the health care debate in 2017. In both cases, Trump said he backed certain policies only to turn around later and blast the same idea — and those who voted for them — later on Twitter.That lack of confidence and fear of retribution could make it significantly harder for Republicans to pass any politically risky immigration proposals ahead of the midterm elections in November.NPR’s Scott Detrow contributed to this reportCopyright 2018 NPR.

Why are Millennials Locked Out of the Housing Market

first_imgWhy are Millennials Locked Out of the Housing Market? April 6, 2016 629 Views Share in Daily Dose, Data, Headlines, Market Studies, Newscenter_img Home Builders Housing Market Millennials Realtor.com 2016-04-06 Staff Writer There are two factors keeping millennials out of the housing market: rising home prices and a lack of  affordable, newly constructed homes for sale.A recent report from Realtor.com found that home builders, who could create an entire new stock of affordable, entry-level homes, do not plan to do so any time soon.”Much like home buyers themselves, builders are still struggling to recover from the housing crash of ’08—dealing with lenders who don’t want to lend and higher costs for all things housing-related,” the report said.Robert Dietz, Chief Economist at the National Association of Home Builders expects construction on single-family homes to be up about 15 percent year-over-year. The Department of Commerce reported that about 647,900 new, single-family homes were completed in 2015.“Builders are creating larger, more expensive homes for older buyers” with the money to burn, Dietz says.Home building rebounded recently with a surge in single-family home construction, inducing starts, permits, and completions, signaling newfound confidence in the housing market and economy.The U.S. Census Bureau and the HUD jointly released new residential construction statistics for February 2016, which showed single-family housing starts bounced back more than expected in February to their highest level in five months, led by a the largest jump in single-family units in nine years.According to the data, February’s housing starts rose 5.2 percent to an annual rate of 1,178,000, compared to January’s estimate of 1,120,000. Year-over-year housing starts experienced major gains, rising 30.9 percent compared to the February 2015 rate of 900,000. Overall starts have not been this high since September 2015 when the figure was 1,207,000.On the singe-family side, housing starts were at a rate of 822,000 in February, up 7.2 percent from the revised January figure of 767,000. Single-family starts have not been this high since November 2007 when they were at 833,000.”The very positive single-family report further supports other housing and general economic reports that the housing recovery continues unabated,” said David Crowe, National Association of Home Builders Former Chief Economist and SVP. “Low mortgage rates, increases in employment, continued US economic expansion and growing pent up demand particularly among existing home owners are supporting more single-family home building.”last_img read more

Newsweek story posting from an authentic ID that had gone silent five years ago The fascination with the identity of the creator of an anonymous currency is ironic It has distracted attention from the real Bitcoin story — its runaway success shows that there is a demand for a completely dematerialised currency which is not based on physical value but only on the calculus of scarcity and which can be transmitted across the internet bypassing formal banking channels A market for such currencies obviously exists and nations should collaborate to regulate them rather than driving them offshore and underground In the media Bitcoin coverage has been driven by the fear of the unknown Stories highlight the popularity of Bitcoin with internet escrow services which facilitate peer to peer trades in drugs and other contraband They neglect to mention that Bitcoin powers a tiny fraction of the global contraband trade almost all of which is transacted in paper currencies like dollars and euros Gleeful reports abound about excessive Bitcoin volatility about China banning the currency to prevent offshoring about the biggest Bitcoin agency being hacked and filing for bankruptcy Bitcoin is

political communication The May 7 poll in Andhra Pradesh marked the culmination of one of the most difficult and trying election campaigns for political parties in the states of AP and (still to be formed) Telangana At the same time these elections solidified some trends observed in parties across the polity Political parties with some rare exceptions are increasingly content chasing voters and maximising their vote share rather than emphasising policies and mobilising their own stable voting public Unlike earlier elections in AP this time around it was almost like a “founding” election and there was a great deal of uncertainty given the three striking changes that have taken place since the previous elections in 2009 First the impending bifurcation of the state threw both political parties and the party system itself into complete disarray There was a shuffling of party personnel with multiple crossovers between parties Most parties now have a fair sprinkling of former Congress members leaving the Congress itself substantially emaciated Second the electoral scene in AP has just been crowded with a couple of new players and in future it could look increasingly like its southern counterparts Tamil Nadu and Kerala Third thanks to the proactive role of the Election Commission there was a sizeable increase in new voters More importantly more than 16 per cent of the total electorate is in the 18 to 25 age bracket These three changes together pushed political parties hard Parties had to both recalibrate and reposition themselves and this was most visible in the nature of the electioneering As in other parts of the country electioneering went through a series of changes affecting the voter-party relationship and interaction The more prominent changes include the increasing reliance on both technology and marketing techniques for political communication Nearly all political parties have an online presence and today the use of social media to reach out to the public is almost considered passé Technology savvy and more importantly resource rich parties like the Telugu Desam Party (TDP) the Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) and the Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) also used 3D holographic projection technology extensively to beam public addresses of their respective leaders across multiple locations simultaneously Some of the parties were also reported to have used specialised constituency management software to centrally manage the entire electioneering process The TDP also experimented with an Interactive Voice Response System (IVRS) not only to reach out to the voters but for candidate selection itself Like business enterprises parties in the state also regularly used “market intelligence” in the form of surveys to not only assess themselves but also obtain information about what voters wanted Many individual leaders reportedly held polls in their respective constituencies to gauge public opinion on the popularity of parties before crossing over Technology and political marketing techniques individualised both the campaign and the message At the same time they further downgraded the importance of the party organisation But we do not know whether the organisation stepped down due to new trends in electioneering or whether it is because of another feature which Andhra shares with other parts of the country — the leader-centric nature of its political parties All the state-based parties including the TDP TRS Jai Samaikyandhra Party (JSP) Jana Sena Party YSR Congress party All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) are distinctly tied to the particular leaders The polity-wide parties are not an exception to this trend; the only difference is that the Congress and the BJP are bound to a leadership external to the state In leader-centric parties the organisation exists only as a vestigial organ And suddenly German sociologist Robert Michels’s message “who says organisation says oligarchy” begins to ring loud and clear As the role of the organisation diminishes parties find it more expedient to implement a voter-chasing strategy than a voter-mobilising strategy Studies would argue that real electoral campaigns across the world have a mix of both these elements and fall somewhere on a continuum between these two ideal types Political scientist Robert Rohrschneider who first made this distinction notes that each of the strategies involves a trade-off between elements While chasing attempts to maximise vote share mobilising is motivated by policies While mobilising focuses on core voters chasing goes after the unaligned Chasing depends a great deal on technology while mobilising relies on history and ideology While mobilising looks to its core constituencies chasing emphasises leaders A comparison of the party positions and the campaign in Telangana and AP will highlight the chasing strategy In Telangana parties/ alliances wanted exclusive credit for the formation of the new state Most manifestos had something for the so-called martyrs of Telangana However the relevant parties repositioned themselves in Andhra where their main focus was on blaming others for the division of the state This works only with an unwritten don’t ask don’t tell agreement among parties An examination of other promises also brings out the demand-driven orientation The TRS first promised to have a Dalit as chief minister and a Muslim as deputy CM It conveniently ignored this promise until very late in the campaign when it resurrected the Muslim-as-deputy CM plank The TDP pushed for a backward caste CM while the Congress increased the pool of potential CMs to include women During the campaign in AP the TDP said that there would be two deputy CMs including one from a backward caste and another from the Kapus The campaign was obviously catering to specific audiences The distinctive feature was that parties were not mobilising their core constituencies but aiming to attract converts and the unaligned When parties prefer to cater to the market and rely more on technology and leaders for political communication will there be space for party organisations Without an organisation will it still be a party The writer is with the department of political science University of Hyderabad express@expressindiacom For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Related
