Mukesh Kumar, DDG inaugurates solar energy plants at AIR Kargil


A pledge to Mother Nature: Mukesh Kumar

Three stations of All India Radio in Kargil have become the first radio stations in India to run on solar energy in keeping with Government of India’s vision to promote the use of renewable energy.

DDG (E) of AIR, Kargil, Mukesh Kumar said that this is great gift for the environment and the nation. “This is Swachhta Hi Seva in the real sense!” he added. He was speaking at an event organised to celebrate Swatchata Abhiyan and inaugurate the installation of solar plants at AIR and Doordarshan in the frontier district of Kargil.

Mr. Kumar said that Ladakh is a cold desert and has been affected by human-induced global warming. “The use of technologies such as Diesel Generator (DG) sets disrupts the ecology of this region. All India Radio Kargil is making an effort to reduce the emission of greenhouse gases through the use of renewable energy for its daily activities,” he said.

He added that AIR stations at Drass, Tai Suru and Padum, where the primary source of energy to operate the Radio stations was Diesel Generators and DMC Kargil, are using solar energy as its primary source of electricity. “3 numbers of, 5kW Solar Photovoltaic Rooftop plants has replaced 62.5 KVA DG sets at each of the AIR stations and 2 numbers of, 5kW solar Photovoltaic Rooftop Solar plants has replaced a 25 KVA DG set at DMC,” he informed.

In total, 242.5 KVA generated from different DG sets has been replaced by solar photovoltaic (SPV) rooftop systems. In addition, the Very Low Power Televisions (VLPTVs) of Doordarshan at different locations of Kargil that were non-functional are now in operation with the installation of a 5kW SPV rooftop system. The switch to renewable energy technology is expected to reduce the annual consumption to the tune of 4 lakh litres of diesel and in effect reduce greenhouse gas emission of 400 tonnes of carbon into the atmosphere.

Mukesh Kumar also pointed out that now the radio stations in Drass, Tai Suru and Padum have uninterrupted electricity. “Earlier the FM Transmission from these stations used to run for six hours. Now, they will be in operations for 24 hours. This part of AIR Kargil efforts to protect the environment, while tirelessly serving the people of the district. Next, we will work to make AIR, Kargil the first High Power Transmission station to run on renewable energy technology by replacing the 1MW DG Set with a solar power plant as well as the upcoming projects of FM10 Kw and TV station 10 Kw at Hombotingla to run from Solar Power.” he added.

The event was attended by Programme Head AIR Kargil Sonam Angchuk, Assistant Engineers DK Gupta and NK Sharma, along with officers and family members from radio colony, Kargil.

Earlier all the Staff members and DDG (E) Mukesh Kumar cleaned the premises of the Station and took Swatchatta Pledge.

Inspiration-Small Rajasthan Town Came Together to Send This Labourer’s Son as an Engineer to Google, US.

Teja Ram Sankhla and his wife Rami Devi used to sell vegetables in a small town called Sojat in Pali district of Rajasthan. Teja Ram working in a henna-making factory, where he would load and unload cartons full of henna products. His wife too took up a job at a construction site. One of their primary goals in life was to build a house of their own. Hence they borrowed funds from a moneylender and bought a parcel of land.

Ram Chandra was the eldest of their three children and at an age when he was able to understand the hardships that his parents were going through.Ram was a bright child but his parents could afford to send him only to the local Hindi medium government school.Ram scored a merit position in class 10.However, when he scored above 90% in his Class X examination, the family could see a ray of hope.He then moved to Pali, which was 40 km from his town Sojat, to continue his studies., he got a good exposure staying at Pali and knew what he was going to do further. He now decided to prepare for the IIT entrance test by enrolling for coaching at Kota.

“All I can say is that it was all a miracle. There was a childhood friend I used to play with. I had never been to his place or met his parents. But on hearing the news of me getting into IIT, his parents came to our place and gave us a cheque of a certain amount which was enough to pay the fees of the counseling and the first semester,” Ram informs.

When Ram returned home for his first Diwali vacation after joining the IIT, there was another surprise waiting for him. One of his neighbors insisted that he accompany him to their community gathering.

“I saw unknown faces at this gathering and yet strangely enough, they had collected Rs 30,000 for me to buy a laptop,”I was a computer science engineering student. A laptop was necessary to complete all our assignments but I could not afford one. This was a pleasant surprise. I am so thankful that I came across such wonderful people in my life,” adds Ram.

“My father never begged of anyone. Whenever he needed money, he took a loan and paid it with interest. Unfortunately, our system is such that it discourages financially weak students to get ahead in life. Getting an education loan was a nightmare,” says Ram.

He finally got an education loan when he entered the second year. He also excelled in studies and won a scholarship of Rs 30,000 per year. The first thing he did with his scholarship amount was to get a moped for his father, which his father rides proudly even today. The next thing he did was to get the kitchen and toilet constructed with his next two years’ scholarship.

In 2013, Ram completed his BTech degree in Computer Science from IIT and got a job as a software engineer in Google India’s Bengaluru office.

He moved to Google’s Seattle office in USA in April this year. Incidentally, his father continues to work as a loader in the henna factory by choice and his mother looks after their home.

“I am really proud of my son. He keeps telling me to relax at home but I like to work. It keeps me healthy,” says Teja Ram Sankhla, the proud father of Ram.

Central Government Commutation of Pension – Frequently Asked Questions

G.1 How much of the pension can be commuted?
A pensioner can opt to commute up to 40% of the pension admissible at the time of retirement.
G.2 Is there any limit on commutation of pension?
A Government servant shall be entitled to commute for a lump sum payment up to 40 per cent of his pension.
G.3 Is there any restriction on commutation of pension?
Yes. No Government servant against whom departmental or judicial proceedings as referred to in Rule 9 of the Pension Rules, have been instituted before the date of his retirement or the pensioner against whom such proceedings are instituted after the date of retirement, shall be eligible to commute a fraction of his provisional pension authorised under Rule 69 of the Pension Rules or the pension, as the case may be, during the pendency of such proceedings.
G.4 Whether the family can be given the benefit of 40 per cent commutation if a pensioner dies before exercising option?
In view of Governments clarificatory orders, no such benefit can be given to the family.
G.5 What will be the effective date of reduced pension if,
a) The applicant is drawing pension from PAO?
b) The applicant is drawing pension from a branch of Public Sector Bank?
c) A Government servant who retired on superannuation and commutation applied in Form 1-A of CCS(Commutation of Pension) Rules before the date of retirement and commutation paid through Head of Office within the first month of retirement ?
a) The reduction in the amount of pension on account of the commutation shall be operative from the date of receipt of the commuted value of pension or at the end of three months after issue of authority by the PAO for the payment of commuted value of pension, whichever is earlier.
(b) The reduction in the amount of pension on account of commutation shall be operative from the date on which the commuted value of pension is credited by the bank to the applicant’s account to which pension is being credited.
(c) The reduction in the amount of pension on account of commutation shall be operative from its inception. The commuted value is paid in two stages as such the reduction in the amount of pension shall be made from the respective dates of the payment as per (a) or (b) above, as the case may be.
G.6 How does the period of 15 years for restoration of commuted portion of pension reckon?
The 15-year period for restoration may be reckoned from the date of retirement itself only in case where the payment of commuted value of pension was/is made during the first month of retirement leading to appropriate reduction on account of commutation in the first pension itself. In all other cases, where the commutation of pension led/leads to a reduction in the second or subsequent month, the 15-year period will be reckoned from the date on which reduction in pension became/becomes effective.
G.7 Is any authorization for restoration of commuted portion of pension after 15 years required from PAO/CPAO?
No. Restoration of commuted portion of pension after 15 years (from the date of crediting of commuted value) or as fixed by the Government from time to time is to be made automatically by bank on receipt of application in prescribed proforma from the eligible pensioner. In cases where the date of commutation is not readily available in the PPO, the bank will obtain the information from the concerned PAO who issued the PPO through CPAO before restoring the commuted portion of pension.
G.8 What has the pensioner to do for restoration of commuted portion of pension? From what date is it restored?
Commuted portion of pension is to be restored after 15 years from the date of commutation. This restoration was introduced w.e.f. 1.4.85 i.e. those who completed 15 years on or after 1.4.85, their pension was to be restored. This period of 15 years is to be counted from date of discharge provided commutation was sanctioned simultaneously with service pension in the same PPO.
However, where commutation was sanctioned subsequent to the date of discharge the restoration of commuted portion of pension will be done on completion of 15 years from the date from which the amount of capitalized value is paid or credited to the pensioner’s account. Every pensioner has to apply to his PDA (Pension Disbursing authority) through an application after completion of 15 years for restoration of commuted portion of pension.
G.9 Whether restoration of commuted portion of pension is admissible to those who were absorbed permanently in autonomous bodies/PSUs and have drawn 100% lump-sum payment in lieu of pension?
Yes. Only 1/3rd portion of pension may be restored after 15 years from the date of commutation in terms of O.M. dated 6.9.2007, O.M. dated 15.9.2008 and 11.07.2013. Additional pension applicable to old pensioners (80 years and above) and dearness relief on full pension is also payable
G.10 What is restoration of pension and when is it due?
Restoration of the fraction of the pension commuted by the pensioners becomes due for restoration after completion of 15 years period from the date of payment of lumpsum value of commutation.
G.11 What is reduce/residual/residuary pension?
Reduce/residual/residuary pension is the part of pension which is payable after deducting commuted portion of the pension.
G.12 What would be the age to be used for commutation of additional commutable pension and which factor would be used for such additional commuted value of pension ?
