One of the great unsung miracles of modern India.

http://thebreakthrough.org/index.php/pr ... ufferaaf0b

India’s declining fertility rate, now only slightly higher than that of the United States, is part of a global trend of lower population growth. Yet the media and many educated Americans have entirely missed this major development, instead sticking to erroneous perceptions about inexorable global population growth that continue to fuel panicked rhetoric about everything from environmental degradation and immigration to food and resource scarcity.

In a recent exercise, most of my students believed that India’s total fertility rate (TFR) was twice that of the United States. Many of my colleagues believed the same. In actuality, it is only 2.5, barely above the estimated U.S. rate of 2.1 in 2011, and essentially the replacement level. (A more recent study now pegs U.S. fertility at 1.93.) Still, from a global perspective, India and the United States fall in the same general fertility category, as can be seen in the map below.

if we go by 'development leads to lesser birth rate' - then we can see it holding true for NE and BIMARU

True, but classes created by capitalism tend to be more dynamic, less birth-based. Capitalism in India would tend to change the British-imposed rigid birth-based caste rules and move it to more like the fluid class system in older India. Hopefully.

RTI aggregation platform, Rapid Action Against Corruption in India (RAACI) has launched YourAdhikar, an online platform to file applications under Right to Information Act (2005).

When we checked the website, we noticed that users have to sign up with their email address and password. After signing up, users can either file RTIs with correct address and PIOs information or view RTIs filed so far. Users can file RTI applications free of cost. In the back end, the company has a person who does the manual filing of the applications. Once the response is received, it is uploaded into their database and a scanned copy of the response is sent to the applicant.

In addition to filing RTIs, the platform also has provision for users to file first and second appeal to higher authorities as well. The company plans to add status update on the filing soon.

RTI response aggregation: Besides this, it also intends to aggregate the RTI responses, anonymise the data and make them available through RAACI’s website for public access. The company said that the data will be anonymised to protect the identity of the people filing the application. When we checked, we also noticed that the website’s privacy policy states that YourAdhikar reserves ” the full rights to publish and share any such information obtained” through the RTIs filed.

Speaking to Medianama, Raj Shekhar Singh, co-founder of RAACI said that they had initially tried to aggregate RTI responses by asking applicants to upload their responses to RAACI’s website so that all others in need of the same information could also access it. However, they had to pivot due to difficulties in getting people to upload their responses.

Private filing: The company has kept its plans for private RTI filing on hold since there may be legal issues with respect to private filing. Physical signature of the applicant may also be required for private filings in case of documents like passport applications, among others.

While the company intends to keep the platform free for users, Singh said that they are looking at B2B monetisation of this platform.

Online government filing of RTI: In April 2013, the government of India had launched www.rtionline.gov.in, an online platform to file applications under Right to Information Act 2005 (RTI). At the time of launch, this website was accepting RTI applications only for the Department of Personnel & Training (DoPT).

However, it looks like the platform is now accepting RTI applications for several departments including Department of Animal Husbandry, Dairying and Fisheries, Department of Chemicals & Petrochemicals, Department of Commerce, Department of Consumer Affairs, among several others. Users are required to pay for the filing of application on this website, either through Internet banking or using debit/credit cards.

Some of the other players in this space include Rtination that charge Rs 150 per application and Onlinerti.com that charges Rs 75 per request.


Awesome service! :)

India becomes part of regional trading bloc despite Chinese opposition.

India overcame resistance from China to become a part of the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP) agreement, an Asean + 6 grouping which is set to emerge as one of the most significant free trading blocs in the world, government sources confirmed.

Despite Beijing's reservations, India participated in the first round of negotiations held recently for RCEP because of support from several Asean nations led by Malaysia which insisted on India's involvement. The RCEP comprises China, India, Australia, New Zealand, Japan and South Korea apart from the 10-member Asean.

Government sources here as well as Malaysia's minister for international trade and industry Mustapa bin Mohamed told TOI that there was no objection any longer to India's participation in RCEP which seeks to achieve greater regional economic integration. "Let us not go into the past... the fact is that there is complete unanimity in RCEP now and that is what matters,'' he said in reply to a query about China's opposition to India's involvement.

According to government sources, there were certain issues raised by China over India's participation but Beijing had no option but to acquiesce after it noticed popular support for India. The second round of negotiations for RCEP will be held in Australia in September. The agreement is likely to come into effect in 2015.

After it was first proposed in the 2011 Asean summit, RCEP has been looked upon by Malaysia and other nations in the region as one of the most ambitious regional economic integration initiatives meant to integrate Asean economy with the global economy.

Asean countries, many of which have had territorial spats with Beijing in the South China Sea, look upon India as an important partner, not least Malaysia which is fast emerging as a crucial economic partner for India. While the FTA with Asean in services and investment is still being awaited, India's high commissioner to Malaysia Vijay Gokhale said Malaysia has already given India a lot bilaterally in services.

Replying to a query over the India-Asean FTA in services, Mohamed said an agreement will be signed in August.

Mindful of the interests of several Asean countries in South China Sea, India also came out in support of the demand for a code of conduct to avoid any conflict in the disputed region. "We urge all parties concerned to take forward these discussions towards adoption of a code of conduct in the South China Sea on the basis of consensus,'' foreign minister Salman Khurshid said at the 20th ARF meet in Brunei.

"We oppose the use or threat of use of force. We hope that all parties to disputes in the South China Sea region will abide by the 2002 Declaration on Conduct in the South China Sea and work together to ensure peaceful resolution of disputes, in accordance with international law, including 1982 UNCLOS,'' he added.

Abhaey, very good and commendable effort. However, someone needs to highlight the discoveries and inventions/innovations of modern India( I know you did mention J.C Bose and S.N Bose), which for some reason, are not known or acknowledged in the international mainstream media. "The Indians discovered zero and our decimal system" is getting a bit stale, though there are people who still don't know or won't acknowledge even that, for some strange reason! Even "there's that Indian guy who read a license plate and said the number was very interesting" (Ramanujam) is a bit dreary. Reamrks like these tend to fossilise Indian science.

What are some of the important and impressive scientific discoveries and innovations in the *post independence* phase, 1947 to the present? There are scientists like Narlikar, Ramachandran, Swarup, Sharma, and a host of others who made major contributions to modern science and technology.

Abheay, one of the aspects which gets overlooked by the scientific community is the salt-taxes, which were only lifted at independence, prevented many communities in the colouring and textile trades from maintaining their industries as the different varieties of salts were crucial to the type of fabric. The salt taxes also prevented the emergence of a genuine chlor-alkali industry and India had to wait until independence to set up a genuine chemicals industry that encompasses both organic and inorganic chemistry.

Abhaey, nice work. Another suggestion is the greatest invention ever, which i and some others consider is the number 10. While Zero, Shunya, nothingness can be symbolized, putting the shunya ahead of the 1 for the number 10 or X in Roman is a genius masterstroke of the nth magnitude. That was done by some Rishi and it changed counting, math and the history of civilization. WIth Roman numerals one cannot multiply two 3 digit numbers in a week. When we represent numbers with a X represented by a 1 followed by a Zero/ 0/ Shunya the whole concept changes and vista's open. From being barely able to count sheep in the flock we can give numbers to stars and grain of sand in the universe! Suggest Georges Iffrah's Universal History of Numbers, a classic read and he too can't stop praising Indian mathematical contributions and the number 10.

Isro, Tata Motors develop India's first fuel cell bus
BANGALORE: For the first time in the country, a Hydrogen-powered automobile bus has been developed by Tata Motors Limited (TML) and Isro after several years of research.

The hydrogen fuel-fitted bus was demonstrated at Liquid Propulsion Systems Centre, an Isro facility in Mahendragiri in Tamil Nadu.
The hydrogen cells were a spin-off of the cryogenic technology that Isro had been developing for the last few years, the Bangalore-headquartered Isro officials said.

"That's not exactly the cryogenic technology...(It's) liquid hydrogen handling and that's where Isro has some expertise," they said.

context : http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/indi ... 656881.cms

CHENNAI/BANGALORE: Crossing a major milestone in the country's space history, Isro's Mars Orbiter Mission on Sunday ventured out of Earth's sphere of influence for the first time in an attempt to reach the red planet's orbit.

The critical manoeuvre to place the Mars orbiter spacecraft in the Mars transfer trajectory was successfully carried out almost an hour past midnight.

During this manoeuvre, which began at 00:49 hours, the spacecraft's 440 Newton liquid engine was fired for about 22 minutes providing a velocity increment of 648 metres/second to the spacecraft.

"Following the completion of this manoeuvre, the Earth orbiting phase of the spacecraft ended. The spacecraft is now on a course to encounter Mars after a journey of about 10 months around the Sun," the Bangalore-headquartered Indian Space Research Organisation said in a statement.

One could, somewhat flippantly, state that the Mars Orbiter has always been in the orbit of the sun, since the planet Earth itself is heliocentric! But of course, the real significance is that Mangalyaan has escaped totally from Earth's gravitational influence, and is now in a purely Sun-centric orbit, with whatever minor influence the planet Mars exerts at this time( does it at all?).

ECIL LAUNCHES “NIRBHAYA”, A GPS BASED TELE DISTRESS ALARM DEVICE

“NIRBHAYA” is developed at BARC and commercialized by ECIL. This compact electronic device, used in conjunction with a cell phone, sends information to near and dear ones including police in case of severe distress or fear of attack. In case of need, a switch provided on the device is pressed. It automatically sends a signal to the cell phone along with its location. The software loaded in the cell phone sends a pre-formatted message through SMS to pre-selected five cell phone numbers. These five phone numbers are user selectable. These can include phone numbers of parents, relatives, friends, family doctor and police. NIRBHAYA can thus assure that help is on hand when it is needed.

The Pallonji Mistrys control only 13 per cent of the Tata Sons share capital. Cyrus Mistry may be Irish but a lot depends on the institutional structure under which they are held. If these are held by family trusts registered in India then it is a different matter altogether. Also his sister is married to Noel Tata. Not sure she is Irish either.

X-post, (there was some discussion about benefits for program like GIAN, NaMo/Obama's program about "Teach in India")

Here is a viewpoint, very similar to what I said, from Field medalist Manjul Bhargava on GIAN.

Manjul Talks very admiringly about NaMo and the leadership.


GIAN will bring top scientists to India: Manjul
BENGALURU: Manjul Bhargava, the R Brandon Fradd Professor of Mathematics at Princeton University, and a winner of the Fields Medal, considered the Nobel Prize of mathematics, (Also a Padma Bhusan) is spearheading the government's GIAN initiative, also known as Teach In India. In Bengaluru on Wednesday, he talked admiringly about the homework Prime Minister Narendra Modi put in when meeting scientists at the Indian Science Congress earlier this month and his GIAN initiative.

"He had read up on everybody and asked questions related to their field," Bhargava said. Global Initiative of Academic Networks plans to get at around 1,000 top scientists from all over the world to teach in India over the next year. "It's worth taking a pay cut to come to India," he said. He also talked about the achievements of ancient India.

State plans to build bypass, widen Mumbai-Pune E-way

The idea is to have a 14-lane connectivity that will include six lanes of NH4 and eight of the expressway. The project also envisages building a bypass between Khalapur toll naka near Khopoli and Sinhgad institute through an underground tunnel and a cable-stayed bridge to cut travel time.
......
The Rs 7,000 crore project will have to be approved by the Union ministry of environment and forests as the underground tunnel for the bypass road will have to be built 180 metres below the Lonavla lake. The irrigation department has already given an NOC for the project.

India has been ranked 37 out of 102 countries in the Open Government Index, that measures the government openness based on the general public's experiences and perceptions.

In the World Justice Project's (WJP) Open Government Index 2015 report, India was ranked at the 37th place, with an overall score of 0.57, followed by its BRIC peer Brazil at the 38th place.

The WJP Open government index uses four dimensions to measure government openness. Publicised laws and government data, right to information, civic participation and complaint mechanisms.

Scores range from 0 to 1 (with 1 indicating greatest openness).
