SHRI PRAVEEN RASHTRAPAL: Sir, you should appreciate it. They were ruling this country for seven years. They have not removed Article 370, and today they are arguing on the same article. ...(Interruptions)...

SHRI MOINUL HASSAN: Sir, I would also like to say something.

ֳ֯ : ֯ ׻֋

SHRI MOINUL HASSAN (WEST BENGAL): Sir, I rise in support of the Bill. I would like to speak just about the financial allocation. ...(Interruptions)...

MR. DEPUTY CHAIRMAN: You will not take one minute.

SHRI MOINUL HASSAN: Sir, I would like to raise only one or two questions. I will speak only for two-three minutes. Sir, as far as the financial allocation is concerned, when the number of district covered was 200 -- here in the Bill, it is mentioned 197 and it is extended up to 330 districts throughout the country -- the allocation was Rs. 11,300 crores. Sir, now, when another 130 more districted are covered under this Programme, the allocation is increased by only Rs. 700 crores. So, in terms of providing some more funds, the allocation has increased, but in real term, it is decreased. How is it possible to cover all the districts, so far as the financial allocation is concerned? (Followed by 1u/SKC)

1u/12.35/skc-sc

SHRI MOINUL HASSAN (CONTD.): My question is this: In real terms, why is the financial allocation reducing? And, when the financial allocation is reducing, how is it possible to cover the entire nation under this scheme? That is my first question.

My second point, which I had raised even earlier when a full-fledged discussion had taken place in this august House, is this. There is only earthwork in the rural areas. I would like to suggest that this may be extended to rural development, to building up artisan sheds, getting pucca roads, rural hatt and irrigation projects as well. It would cover the rural population throughout the country.

The third point relates to my State of West Bengal. In West Bengal, already 17 districts in Kolkata have been covered under this scheme. Only one, the district of Howrah, has been kept out of the purview of the scheme. That should be included in the scheme. There is a large part of rural India in this industrial district of my State.

These are the three points which I would like the hon. Minister to consider. (Ends)

SHRI RAVULA CHANDRA SEKAR REDDY (ANDHRA PRADESH): Sir, I rise to support the Bill.

Sir, we have discussed this issue during the last sitting. This scheme was implemented in 200 districts in the initial stage; it has already completed one year in those areas. Our experience in the field shows that there are a lot of problems with field assistants. They are not being paid properly. When a person who is a full-time worker in the field is not paid properly, he may be tempted to enter into corruption or diversion of funds. Please look into this aspect. Otherwise, they will have their own share out of the kitty. I would request the hon. Minister to throw some light over this aspect.

Secondly, since it is only wage employment, I would like to request the hon. Minister to explore the possibility of having asset creation also. Otherwise, there will not be anything when the audit party comes or a social audit takes places; there would be nothing available on the field. Only some jungle clearings and other things would be there and the money would have been swallowed. There are a lot of such instances. I don't want to take much time, but in one instance, an individual had drawn Rs. 70,000 in his name. This was in the district of Anantpur, where the scheme was launched by the hon. Prime Minister. In that village, Rs. 70,000 was paid in the name of a single person. There are a lot of problems in the field. I would request the hon. Minister to examine the records, social audit reports, etc. In certain places, people were not allowed to enter the village for social audit; they were locked up in the room. You are going to extend this scheme to other parts of the country. Please, go into the details of our experience in the field. Otherwise, this scheme is going to be a waste, and shall remain only on paper. The earlier schemes of NREGP, the National Rural Employment Guarantee Programme, RLEGP, Rural Landless Employment Guarantee Programme, NREP, EAS, all these schemes have together been renamed as the National Rural Employment Guarantee Act; it is nothing new. The only new addition is corruption. Please look into this aspect. (ENDS)

MR. DEPUTY CHAIRMAN: Dr. Malaisamy. You have only half a minute.

DR. K. MALAISAMY (ANDHRA PRADESH): Sir, I give my full assurance that I shall not take more than a minute.

Sir, from what our friends have been saying and what we have been given to understand, the position of Jammu & Kashmir is very much clear, in the sense that in terms of law and order, internal security, and everything else, due to terrorism and other activity, the State is almost in turmoil. People are very much afraid of moving out. In such a situation, it is a welcome move, as far as you are concerned, to extend the same Act to other parts of the country along with Jammu & Kashmir. While I appreciate the move, I am very much concerned about whether it would be implemented. The idea is very good, but will there be action on the ground? That is my point. Now, why am I saying this? In other parts of the country, the scheme has been in existence for several years. (Contd. by 1w/hk)

HK-MP/1w/12.40

DR. K. MALAISAMY (CONTD.): We are able to see, in many places, that during the time of their implementation in the name of giving employment to people huge machinery have been imported and they do the job. I agree with them. But it is not done by manpower or human labour, etc., on the other hand, it is done by machinery. Sir, to be honest with you, records are prepared in such a way that this much of work has been done by so many people. This is happening even in other parts of the country. ..(Interruptions)..

MR. DEPUTY CHAIRMAN: One minute is over. ..(Interruptions).. Please complete. ..(Interruptions)..

DR. K. MALAISAMY: If that be the case, while implementing it in Jammu & Kashmir where people are afraid, give targets to officials who are supposed to implement the scheme. If people are not responding, then it will be very difficult and they are likely to misuse it. So, what I am trying to ask the Minister is: Have you taken care of the situation in which Kashmir is placed? Is there a congenial atmosphere through which you can certainly implement it? What safeguard have you taken to see that the scheme is well implemented? (ENDS)

SPECIAL MENTIONS

CONCERN OVER ILLEGAL TRANSFER OF LAND ALLOTTED TO SOUTH EASTERN COALFIELD LTD. TO A PRIVATE COMPANY

 

SHRI MANGANI LAL MANDAL (BIHAR): Sir, the South Eastern Coalfield Ltd. Company has acquired 1701.36 hectares of land in the year 1986 under C.B.A. Act for mining activities for Deepak Mines which is now 25 million tonnes project in Korba District of Chattisgarh. But the Government of Chattisgarh allotted a land measuring 37.91 acre at village Ratija to M/s MCCPL. This land falls within the leased boundary of the land acquired by SECL which was kept reserved for rehabilitation purpose. Although the project has already rehabilitated 1645 families and provided employment to about 1445 project affected people, the State Government officials have manipulated the lease record of village Ratija and have changed the old Khasra Nos. and allotted new Khasra Nos. But according to the judgement of the Chattisgarh High Court in a Public Interest Litigation Nos.1264/03, 4167/03, and 1382/03 dated 19.12.2006, the District Collector or any official have no power under any statute to provide imaginary Khasra numbers. In spite of that, the Government of Chattisgarh is trying to give possession of the concerned land to M/s MCCPL. In the meantime, the Civil Court Katgorha has passed orders for the status quo.

My humble submission to the Government of India is its immediate intervention and necessary action in the matter.

DEMAND TO DECLARE VARANASI A WORLD HERITAGE SITE

SHRI SANTOSH BAGRODIA (RAJASTHAN): Sir, I rise to draw the attention of this House to the serious degradation of one of the oldest living cities of human civilisation, Varansai. The city is part of our tangible and intangible heritage. However, the city is suffering from rapid urban degradation due to encroachment of monuments and increasing levels of pollution in the river Ganga. Despite the instructions by the ASI to freeze all illegal constructions and in utter disregard to the Allahabad High Court's order to demolish such illegal constructions, the local Varanasi Development Authority has not taken necessary steps. Ghats are being encroached by commercial structures. (Contd. by 1z)

-YSR/MKS/AKG/12.55/1Z

SHRI SANTOSH BAGRODIA (CONTD.): The city development plan proposes to construct jetties on the Ghats, thereby defacing the very identity of the city. The initiatives by UNESCO and INTACH towards restoration could not fructify due to indifference by the Varanasi Development Authority. The River Ganga remains polluted due to untreated discharge of urban sewage and effluent of dying and polishing units around the city. The urban infrastructure is under severe duress due to mushrooming malls and cineplexes. The city roads remain clogged with ever increasing traffic. I request the Government to plead with UNESCO to declare Varanasi a World Heritage site. The urban development and city planning should be in conformity with the heritage of the city and should not violate it. The Government should restore the industrial and urban effluent treatment facilities in and around Varanasi to restore the sanctity of the Ganga. The city should become the living symbol of Incredible India. (Ends)

CONCERN OVER CANCELLATION OF CONTRACTS OF

SPECIAL PHONE BOOTHS ALLOTTED TO PHYSICALLY

HANDICAPPED PERSONS

 

SHRI PRASANTA CHATTERJEE (WEST BENGAL): Sir, I stand to draw the attention of the Union Government and the Ministry of Railways, in particular, to the most inhuman and cruellest decision reportedly taken by the Railway Board to terminate all the existing contracts of Special Phone Booths, which were allotted under a Central Scheme to rehabilitate the disabled persons in 1981, the International Year of Disabled.

(THE VICE-CHAIRMAN, SHRI SANTOSH BAGRODIA, in the Chair.)

It is learnt that without any acceptable logic, the Railway Board has decided to terminate the contracts on April 27, 2007 and thus throwing as many as ten thousand disabled persons out of their only sources of income. It has further been reported that Shri Vayalar Ravi, Minister of Overseas Affairs, wrote to the Railway Minister on February 26, 2007 seeking extension for the disabled booth owners. But that too has been negated. Considering the gravity of the issue, I demand immediate action to scrap the decision of the Ministry of Railways for termination of the existing contracts and thus allow the existing operators to run the booths. (Ends)

CONCERN OVER WITHDRAWAL OF TAX EXEMPTION UNDER

SECTION 80(P) TO URBAN COOPERATIVE BANKS

SHRI MOINUL HASSAN (WEST BENGAL): In view of the Government's decision to withdraw the exemption under Section 80(P) of the Income Tax Act to Urban Cooperative Banks, they are now forced to pay a hefty 33 per cent income tax on the profits they earn. Sir, cooperative banking, being one of the important branches of cooperative movement, has done a great service, over the years, to the salaried class, weavers, farmers, artisans, etc. Cooperative Banks, in fact, were encouraged by the Government of India to enable the vast section of the society, which was excluded from the financial system to get the much-needed financial assistance in order to save the people from the grip of moneylenders. The growth of Cooperative Banks amply justifies this encouragement. The urban Cooperative Banks have shown a stupendous growth in mobilising the small savings from Rs.11,108 crores, in 1991-92, to Rs.1,05,000 crores in 2005. The credit facilities have shown an impressive growth during the same period. Even the State-level Apex Banks and DCC Banks have done exceedingly well in performing their assigned tasks. They have been providing loans at cheaper rates to the agricultural sector. Several Committees have recommended the Government to actively promote the Cooperative Banks. In the recent past too, RBI is talking about financial inclusion to cover the underprivileged section of the population. After the onset of liberalisation, the Cooperative Banks are under a disadvantageous position. They have to compete with the giant banks in the public and private sectors. Therefore, it is imperative to maintain exemption under Section 80P and extend the concession under Section 80C. (Ends)
