Cabinet approves e-auction of third batch of Phase-III FM Radio licenses

The Union Cabinet has approved the auction of 683 channels in 236 cities in the third batch of Phase-III FM radio licenses. With the roll out of the third batch of auctions, the coverage of private FM radio broadcasting will span across all 29 States and 6 Union Territories. The third phase will also include a large number of cities where there are no private FM radio channels as well as cities with a population of less than one lakh.

Batch-I and Batch-II auctions of private FM radio Stations were conducted in 2015 and 2016 respectively. The first batch of Phase 3 auction, which concluded in September 2015, had 135 channels in 69 cities on offer. The total value of channels sold was Rs1,187cr.

However, Batch-II earned only Rs200cr, as only 66 out of 266 frequencies were sold. 66 channels in 48 cities were sold in Batch-II. Many leading FM radio players stayed away from the Batch-II auction due to the high reserve prices set by the government. Notable absences from the auction included DB Corp, HT Media, Reliance Broadcast Network and Music Broadcast.

The government estimates that it would yield more than Rs1,100cr from the e-auction of third batch of Phase-III FM Radio licenses.

Gyan Vani FM goes on air after 3 years

Three years after all the 37 Gyan Vani radio stations went off the air, Indira Gandhi National Open University (Ignou) re-launched its own educational FM channel on Doordarshan Kendra Campus on Friday. The Nagpur station is the first in the state and fourth in the country to seek revival after Banaras, Hyderabad and Delhi. Clearing the air about non-payment of dues by Ignou which led to shutting down of all stations, Kapil Kumar, director, Electronic Media Production Centre (EMPC) at Ignou said that there was never a 'financial crunch' but misunderstandings and clashes between stakeholders resulted in withdrawal.

Transmitters and instruments which became faulty during the discontinuation period need technical fitting and repairs. With some foreign purchases involved, the expenditure might go up to Rs10 to 15 crore, said Kumar. "In the long run, we want to aggressively promote the channel in foreign countries where people of Indian origin are more in numbers. People abroad are keen to learn about the culture and heritage and this way we can bring back their contribution to the nation," said Kumar. He inaugurated the studio in the presence of Yashwant Chivande, director of Akashwani, P Sivaswaroop, regional director of Ignou and Noor-ul-Hasan, assistant regional director.

The move comes as a breath of fresh air for listeners who were dependant on the station for various local, educational and socio-cultural needs. "We have received a good response from non-Ignou students and these dedicated listeners come up with frequent queries. It is highly encouraging and gives hint about the popularity of Gyan Vani," said Sivaswaroop while speaking to TOI.

Government cuts interest rate on small savings plans

The government on Wednesday trimmed interest rates on small savings schemes such as National Savings Certificate (NSC) and Public Provident Fund (PPF) by 20 basis points but spared senior citizens. One hundred basis points equals one percentage point. At the same time, investments in the five-year Senior Citizens Savings Scheme has been retained at 8.3 per cent. The interest rate on the senior citizens’ scheme is paid quarterly. The government had kept rates unchanged in the October-December quarter. The finance ministry also retained the savings deposit rate at 4%. A finance ministry notification said rates have been reduced across the board for schemes such as National Savings Certificate (NSC), Sukanya Samriddhi Account, Kisan Vikas Patra (KVP) and Public Provident Fund (PPF). However, interest on savings deposits has been retained at 4 per cent annually.

Since April last year, interest rates on all small savings schemes have been recalibrated on a quarterly basis. As per the notification, PPF and NSC will fetch a lower annual rate of 7.6 per cent while KVP will yield 7.3 per cent and mature in 11 months. Term deposits of 1-5 years will fetch a lower interest rate of 6.6-7.4 per cent, to be paid quarterly, while the five-year recurring deposit is pegged at 6.9 per cent. The lowering of rates on small savings comes against the backdrop of lower fixed deposit rates by banks. The interest rate on the Employees Provident (EPF) is 8.65%.

GUEST HOUSE FACILITY AT AIR PASSIGHAT(Reposted-Original-05.04.2015)

Welcome to Passighat

Welcome to Pasighat, the oldest town of Arunachal Pradesh. The town was established in 1911 by the British. It is the headquarter of the East Siang district. Due to its 'strategic' situation where the Siang leaves the mountains, Pasighat has been often called the gateway to the state of Arunachal Pradesh.
Pasighat is situated on the banks of the river Siang and is at a height of 152 m. from the sea level. It's population is almost 23,000.

The climate is hot and humid in summers and temperate during winters. The average daytime temperature varies from around 32°C in Summer to around 23°C in winter. At night the average winter temperature is around 8°C

How to get there:

The nearest airport is at Lilabari. Another option (and a more interesting one) is Mohanbari (Dibrugarh), from where you can take a ferry across the Brahmaputra to Oiramghat, which is a few kms from Pasighat. Tip: avoid it during the rainy season when the river is flooded. Pasighat can also be reached by bus from Guwahati (overnight journey), Lakhimpur and Itanagar.

Inspiration:A Botched Surgery Might Have Disabled Her, but Her Poetry Will Give You Strength!


Sathi Mondal hasn’t been able to eat a morsel of food or drink a drop of water through her mouth for the past eight years, but that hasn’t stopped her from penning down hundreds of poems.Emerging as an embodiment of unwavering resilience and strength, she found her refuge in poetry and has channelled years of excruciating pain into thoughtfully written poetic verses.Following an intestinal infection and a wrongly diagnosed medical treatment in 2009, Sathi’s well-planned life went utterly off-track, and it was poetry that came as a respite for the young woman, as she shuttled between home and hospitals for multiple treatments.

“When I write poetry, or see my poems getting published in print, I forget all my problems. I feel I can live a hundred years,” she told IANS from her hospital bed.A resident of Ghoshpara in Nadia district of West Bengal, Sathi’s family, has always struggled to make ends meet.Having envisioned a career in sports, she took her studies quite seriously until a botched-up surgery dampened all her plans.A fitment of Ryles Tube in her stomach has been helping her ingest a liquid diet all these years. However, the process has been quite a strain for Sathi and often causes complications leading to frequent hospital visits for a change of tubes.

Having written more than 500 poems, at least a hundred pieces by Sathi have found its way to Bengali magazines like Collarge, Khola Haoa, Udvas, Lekha Diye Rekhapat, Chhayaman and Krishnachura. In fact, her poems have not just appealed to readers but have also garnered critical acclaim, and she now finds herself often being invited to various literary conferences across the state.

She considers Nobel poet laureate Rabindranath Tagore as her role model and also looks up to renowned Bengali poets like Nirendranath Chakraborty and Aranyak Basu, the latter of whom helps the young woman with monthly subsistence amount of ₹1,000.

All India Radio’s revenue arm marks golden jubilee

 Amid an era of impossibly expensive TV and print advertisements, All India Radio (AIR) charges as little as Rs 400 for 10 seconds on its primary network. It comes with the advantage of having the largest reach of any broadcaster in the world.AIR is preparing to celebrate a rare milestone in its journey. Its Central Sales Unit (CSU), the nodal unit at Churchgate which books commercials for all AIR channels nationwide, will complete its golden jubilee October 1, 2018.

All India Radio has 201 primary channels and local radio stations, 41 Vividh Bharati stations, 25 FM Rainbow and five FM Gold channels. Festivities began Wednesday at the AIR auditorium near Churchgate. A show called 'Lok Dhara' featured bhangra dancer Nirmal Sidhu, lavni artiste Surekha Punekar and Rajasthani Langa-Manganiyar folk musician Bundu Khan who brought the house down.

Inspiration:A Lost Childhood and a Langar Inspired This 83-Year-Old to Feed Hundreds of Poor Kids Everyday


The ‘Langar Baba’ of Chandigarh is a popular person among underprivileged children. Every day, for the past 30 years, the 83-year-old has been visiting different areas at different timings and feeding over a thousand children, so that they don’t sleep hungry.Jagdish Lal Ahuja’s Langar has very deep emotional roots. At the age of 12, due to the Partition, Ahuja had to leave his hometown in Peshawar and come to India.

“I was 12 when we left Peshawar. We arrived at the Patiala base camp from where we were sent to camps in Amritsar. I stayed there for some months and shifted back to Patiala” Ahuja tells Hindustan Times.Here, Ahuja was the only person earning for the family. He would buy Dal Namkeen (a traditional Indian dry snack) for ₹1 and sell it at a profit of 2 aane. He worked all day, and says that “By the time I got home, my feet and hand would be full of blisters, but still had to earn or else I would go hungry for days.”At the age of 21, he had shifted from his parents’ house and started selling oranges on a cart. Working hard throughout the years, Ahuja went from selling oranges to buying a property to earning crores!The turning point in his life came on his son’s eighth birthday, when he organised a langar for children, with the idea of giving back to the society.

“We cooked food for 150 children and served it in the market in Sector 26. The moment I saw the joy on the faces of children, it reminded me of my childhood. I then decided to make it a daily occurrence,” he recalls.“Main apna bachpan dekhda haan, inna ch (I see my childhood in them).”
Eventually, he started distributing rice, chapati, dal, sweets, and balloons in several areas in Chandigarh.For three decades, this man has been religiously feeding children on streets. He recently sold his seventh property to arrange for the finances on the daily langar. Ahuja’s financial and health troubles in the recent times have made it difficult for him to keep up with the langar. However, he hasn’t stopped completely.

“Earlier, I made this langar for over 2000 people daily; now it is for 500. I have reduced the quantity after 2015,” he told HT.He is even battling cancer, which does not allow him to be present for the entire langar. So, he settles for visiting the children only at the end of the distribution.Even with so many troubles surrounding him, Ahuja refuses to take financial help from other people, because that’s against his ethics. He only hopes for help from the government. “I have never sought a favour from anyone, but can only expect some help from the government. Kindly convey my message to the governor that I might need his help in continuing the langar in the near future,” says Ahuja.

Inspiration:Meet Aanya Soni, the 13-Year-Old Indian Chosen for an Antarctica Expedition!




Meet Aanya Soni.All of 13, she has become the youngest Indian to be selected for the Antarctica 2018 Expedition set to take place between 27th Feb-12th March 2018, fueled by the 2041 foundation.
The 2041 foundation was founded by polar explorer, environmental leader and public speaker Robert Swan who the first person in history to walk to both the North and South Pole.

What is the Antarctica Expedition 2018 all about?

Antarctica is a protected, pristine and untouched zone. A 50-year treaty that was signed to prohibit any research, drilling or exploitation of Antarctica ends in 2041. Sir Robert Swan started the foundation to protect Antarctica and spread awareness about climate change.Every year for the past 14 years, Sir Robert Swan’s 2041 foundation has been selecting 80 people from across the world for this expedition, to build leaders who will embrace a sustainable life and impact change in their families, communities and on a corporate level.

Aanya’s journey

While she hails from Ahmedabad, Aanya is currently a student of Class 8, at the Sahyadri School in Pune. Aanya remembers watching Al Gore’s documentary on Climate Change, An Inconvenient truth and being moved by it. It reminded her of the Ted Talk by Sir Robert that she watched earlier this year.Later, she also had the opportunity to meet another Indian, Tanisha Arora, who was chosen for the expedition in 2017 and informed Aanya and her mother, Pratibha, that applications were open and Aanya could also apply for it.Since Aanya is a minor, she needed a guardian. So, she will be joined by Pratibha on her journey to ‘the last wilderness left on earth’ as she calls it.

While Pratibha is a homemaker, Aanya’s father works at Ecolibrium Energy, which helps big and medium-size industries optimise their energy in a sustainable and an ecologically-balanced manner.Aanya might just be 13, but her lifestyle is a lot more sustainable than most adults. As part of the Kids4aCause core team, founded in 2015, Aanya and her friends have been recycling materials and creating functional and useful products for sales, every year during Diwali.......
