2015 9:02 am Prime Minister Narendra Modi in Parliament Related News The Congress always downplayed contributions of its late Prime Minister P V Narasimha Rao But in a rare move on Wednesday the party invoked Rao and recounted a couple of initiatives of his government to counter Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s argument in Rajya Sabha on Tuesday that several of UPA’s programmes were recycled versions of A B Vajpayee government’s initiatives The Congress alleged that Modi misled the House and indicated that the party could raise a question of privilege in the House “If legally found admissible why action will not be taken” party spokesman Abhishek Singhvi said at the AICC briefing when asked if the party was contemplating moving the Privileges Committee Singhvi said many of the schemes listed out by the Prime Minister were “conceptualised” by the UPA government and many “started in the original form” during the 1991-1996 Congress government led by Rao What Modi said and what the Congress claimed: * The PM said the Vajyapee government had a scheme named “Multipurpose National Identity Project” which the UPA brought in as “Aadhaar UIDAI” The Congress said while the BJP manifesto of 1999 promised a national register of citizens and a multipurpose national identity project it did nothing and repeated the promise in 2009 Singhvi said the NDA government in September 2003 six months before elections merely said the government is contemplating preparation of a national register of Indian citizens and the issue of multipurpose national identity cards The Congress he said promised in its manifesto in 2004 and the first tranche of multipurpose national identity card was handed over in May 2007 * Modi said there was Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan during NDA’s tenure while the UPA brought the “Right of Children to Free and Compulsory Education Act” The Congress said the Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan was nothing but the district primary education programme “started by us in 1993-94” the object of both of which was universal primary education * The PM said the NDA government brought the Insurance Regulatory and Development Authority and the UPA set up a similar body in the pension sector The Congress said the 1999 Insurance Regulatory Act owes is genesis to the Malhotra committee report The committee was constituted by the Rao government in 1993 and its report came in January 1994 Singhvi said * The PM said there was Antyodaya Anna Yojana under which the poorest of poor households are entitled to food grains every month at subsidised rates — and the UPA brought in the National Food Security Act Singhvi said the Antyodaya Anna Yojana was minimally implemented while the food Act is a legal entitlement * Lastly the PM drew a parallel between NDA’s Sampoorna Grameen Rojgaar Yojna and UPA’s MNREGA Singhvi said it was like comparing apples with oranges and gold with dirt NDA schemes vs UPA schemes PM Modi claimed that several of UPA’s key schemes were actually revised versions of initiatives taken by the NDA under A B Vajpayee The Indian Express does a fact check 1 The Multipurpose National Identity Project vs Aadhaar: While MNIP involved a national identity card with a micro chip for each citizen Aadhaar gives out a unique 12-digit number to all residents (and not just citizens) Aadhaar involves collection of biometrics and details of the residents 2 Sampoorna Grameen Rozgar Yojana vs UPA’s MNREGA : SGRY was a scheme aimed to provide employment with payment in both cash and food grains to BPL rural poor MGNREGA is an Act that legally entitles each rural poor household to seek 100 days of employment every year at a given wage rate Since it is a legislation MGNREGA lays down clear stipulations of timely wages 3 Freedom of Information Act vs Right to Information Act: The former had a limited definition of “information” while the RTI Act says that exemptions may be overruled by the public authority if it is “satisfied that larger public interest warrants the disclosure of such information” In the Freedom of Information Act there was no provision of Information Commissions and after the first appeal the applicant had no option Under the RTI Act decisions of Information Commissions can be challenged before courts The RTI Act also has provision of penalties 4 Antyodaya Anna Yojana vs National Food Security Act: The Antyodaya Anna Yojana targets 1 crore “poorest of the poor” families and provides them with 35 kg of wheat and rice per month at Rs 2 and Rs 3 per kg respectively Its similarity with the Food Security Act is only the pricing Under the food security Act grains are to be given as a legal entitlement It provides 5 kg per person per month of wheat or rice at Rs 2 and Rs 3/kg respectively to up to 75% of the rural population and up to 50 % of urban population 5 Sarv Shiksha Abhiyaan vs UPA’s Right of Children to Free and Compulsory Education Act: SSA aims to achieve universalization of elementary education in a time-bound manner and is implemented in partnership with state governmentsThe RTE Act 2009 makes elementary education an entitlement for children in the age group of 6-14 SSA had no legal backing RTE is binding 6 Swaranjayanti Gram Swarozgar Yojana vs UPA’s National Rural Livelihoods Mission: SGSY aimed at self-employment to villagers through self-help groups It was then restructured to NRLM which had a demand-driven strategy against the former’s allocation-based strategy It identified the poor using the Participatory Identification of the Poor process unlike SGSY which used the BPL list For

parents will have to pay a fine of Rs 5 lakh the first time and Rs 10 lakh if it is found doing so again Top News Ahead of the winter session of the Delhi assembly the AAP government announced its intention to introduce major changes in the city’s education system by amending existing rules and introducing new ones Some of the measures include levying heavy fines on schools charging a capitation fee scrutinising the accounts of private schools and even centralising EWS admissions The government plans to amend the Delhi School Education Act and Rules (DSEAR) in the forthcoming winter session which starts on Thursday According to sources the new rules will be implemented for admissions to nursery schools in January next year An amendment to Rule 145 of the Act will grant the government the power to create guidelines for nursery schools Under the proposed guidelines schools found guilty of charging a capitation fee will have to pay 10 times the fee amount or a fine of Rs 5 lakh whichever is higher Schools found screening teachers or parents will have to pay a fine of Rs 5 lakh the first time and Rs 10 lakh if it is found doing so again Share This Article Related Article Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Tuesday said that the government was also mulling new guidelines for nursery admissions and was going to hold widespread consultations on the issue “Ideally the admissions process for EWS (economically weaker sections) which will be applicable from this year should apply for nursery admissions…But I think it is too difficult and too early for us to do it this academic year… Widespread consultations are needed for this and we need more time We should have better clarity in 15-20 days” Kejriwal said The process of EWS admissions is set to go online this year with the government introducing a centralised portal for admissions “For EWS admissions the government will start a lottery system this year and direct schools to admit children…There will be a centralised lottery system for all EWS children The government will allot students to schools based on the lottery and schools will have to accept the children The lottery will no longer be carried out by the schools” said Kejriwal Explaining the rationale behind new guidelines for nursery admissions Atishi Marlena Manish Sisodia’s adviser on education said “As of now the government doesn’t have the power to create guidelines… When the lieutenant governor had created guidelines earlier the Delhi High Court had said that the government doesn’t have the power to prescribe guidelines By bringing in an amendment to DSEAR we are giving the government the power to prescribe the guidelines With that power a more transparent system can be created and we can work things out” The government will also introduce an amendment to Section 24 under which the government only has the power to derecognise schools The amendment will give the education department the power to impose certain graded punishments to schools in accordance with the seriousness of their offense and the power to regulate admissions or impose penalties The government also plans to introduce the Delhi Schools Verification of Accounts and Refund of Excess Fee Act this assembly session to conduct financial audits of private schools said Kejriwal The Act proposes the setting up of a committee — headed by a retired judge — which will audit the accounts of private schools and ensure that no money is “siphoned off” “The government cannot interfere with the fees structure But we can check whether the fees charged is being reasonably spent by the school or if it is being siphoned off to some other trust The schools will need to justify their expenditure on the facilities provided to students The exorbitant fees should not be spent anywhere else as schools are run as non-profit entities… ” said Kejriwal He added that the government will rope in chartered accountants to ensure that the accounts and expenditure records provided by the school are above board As per the proposed Act if a school is found guilty of siphoning off money the committee would have the power to determine its fees for the next session The committee would also have the power to make the school return the “excess fees” to parents The Act has also proposed punitive measures including criminal proceedings against erring schools said Deputy CM Manish Sisodia The government also plans to put up the accounts furnished by the schools on the education department’s website “It is justified for the government to take action against schools charging capitation fee or indulging in such practices We appreciate the decision” said S K Bhattacharya president Action Committee for Unaided Private Schools However he added “Under rule 180 we have been submitting our balance sheets to the department every year Nothing changes in that respect Chartered accounts inspecting accounts is only meant to induce a sense of
