Declaration of 25th January as the National Voters’ Day every year The Union Cabinet today approved declaration of 25th January every year as the "National Voters' Day" beginning from this year and to provide voters a badge with its logo and the slogan “Proud to be a voter – Ready to vote”.
The Constitution (Sixty-first Amendment) Act, 1988 was enacted to amend article 326 of the Constitution lowering the voting age from 21 years to 18 years so as to provide the unrepresented youth of the country an opportunity to give vent to their feelings and help them become a part of the political process.
It has been noticed that the new voters (18+ age) are not getting enrolled in the electoral roll in a big way year after year. In certain cases, the level of their enrolment is as low as 20 to 25%. In order to effectively deal with this problem, the Election Commission has decided to take up a vigorous exercise to identify all eligible voters attaining the age of 18 years as on 1st of January every year, in each of the 8.5 lakh polling station areas of the country. Such eligible voters shall be enrolled on time and handed over their Elector Photo Identity Card (EPIC) on the 25lh January every year at a brief felicitation to be organised in each polling station area. This initiation is expected to give the youth a sense of responsible citizenship, empowerment, pride and participation and inspire them to exercise their newly acquired franchise, when occasion arises.

Retirement benefit can not be denied to employee  even if charges against him are pending The Madurai bench of the Madras High Court has ruled that Government cannot deny retirement benefits to an employee who was asked to go on conditional retirement because charges against him were pending. A Division Bench of Justice R.Banumathi and Justice S.Nagamuthu rejected the contention of the government that Sankaran, an Assistant Tahsildhar had been allowed to retire on certain conditions as charges were pending against him,and hence he could not be given retirement benefits.
A single judge had already revoked the order of the collector suspending payment of retirement benefits.
Similarly Raja,a retired Sub-Registrar of cooperatives was allowed conditional retirement on April 30, 2010. But his retirement benefits were suspended as charges were pending against him. His writ petition was dismissed by a single judge, and he had come on appeal.
The Judges said when the Government employees are allowed to retire on condition, disciplinary action could be taken against them or inquiry conducted afresh. But government had no power to suspend payment of retirement benefits to them, the court said.
In a common order passed for both of them, the bench said when they are allowed to retire they should be given their retirement benefits.
Only government had power to take decision on disciplinary action against them, the bench observed and directed that all retirement benefits be paid to them.

Procedure for Mobile Number Portability
We all know that Mobile Number Portability will be a reality from 20th January 2011, as Government has at last announced the launch of this facility for the entire India from this date.
We do not know at this stage how this arrangement would span out but it's really boon for the customers who want to shift to other mobile network for want of quality, lesser cost or for more facility such as 3G.
The procedure for switching over from one mobile network to another mobile network is as follows:

The customer should send a SMS (PORTMobile Number) from the number he wishes to transfer from one mobile network to the other, to number 1900.

Then the customer will receive a Unique Porting Code (UPC) by SMS from his current service provider.

Now the paper work comes. The Customer will have to furnish his details in the prescribed application form to the chosen new mobile network along with Unique Porting Code (UPC) that he got through SMS.

The new mobile network company should then ensure that the switched over customer gets the connection from the new mobile network within seven working days.

TRAI has fixed a ceiling of Rs 19 on porting charges which the new service provider may collect from the subscriber.

Post-paid subscribers, before making the porting request, have to make sure that their last bill has been paid failing which the request for change to new service provider shall be rejected.

In the case of pre-paid subscriber, any balance amount left will not be carried forward when the number is transferred to the new service provider.

Once a subscriber ports his number to the new operator, then, he will have to wait for at least 90 days before he can change his operator again.

Pakistan Post : Employees stage protest against privatization

KARACHI: A large number of postal employees staged a demonstration at II Chundrigar Road on Wednesday to protest against proposals to privatize the Pakistan Post Office.
The Postal Action Committee for Anti-privatization, an alliance of different unions, organized the demonstration. It has planned to hold more such protests.  Syed Akhtar Ahmed and Syed Qamar Abbas Zaidi, central leaders of the Postal Action Committee, while speaking to the employees, termed the proposed privatization an “economic genocide of 47,000 employees of the department.” They said that the state-run unit is the cheapest mode of postal services. They alleged that privatization was aimed at appeasing the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank and vowed to resist such attempts.   
The protesters were carrying banners and placards inscribed with calls for stopping the privatization, allowing the department to introduce reforms, restructuring of the department in consultation with trade unions to modernize postal services and running the organization on modern lines.  
 The protesters also demanded a green signal from the government for using Post Office for distribution of funds under the Benazir Bhutto Income Support Programme, abolition of two postal ministries to reduce the financial burden and restriction on other courier services.Published in The Express Tribune, January 6th, 2011

Whatever the price of onion is, the D.A will not be as sweet as July last year. As per the All India Index published by Labour Bureau, Govt. of India the Dearness Allowance payable to the Central Govt.staff with effect from January 2011 may not be more than 6 percent. The figure for Nov'10 has just released and it stands at 182. The December figure is expected in the end of January. Even if the figure touches 185 in December, which is very unlikely, the D.A. hike will be limited to 6%.
Only thing to cheer is the fixed allowances such as Washing Allowance,Children Education Allowance, Conveyance Allowance for some category of staff will be 25% more as the D.A. will certainly cross the 50% mark. It may be remembered that D.A. linked allowances such as Transport Allowances will be unchanged.
