Banks have no liability for loss of valuables in lockers: RBI



Banks have no liability for loss of valuables in lockers: RBI 
New Delhi, June 25
Do not expect any compensation for theft or burglary of valuables in safe deposit boxes of public sector banks as the locker hiring agreement absolves them of all liability.

This bitter truth was disclosed in an RTI response by the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) and 19 PSU banks.
Stung by the revelation, the lawyer who had sought information under the transparency law has now moved the Competition Commission of India (CCI) alleging “cartelisation” and “anti-competitive practices” by the banks in respect of the locker service.


He has informed the CCI that the RTI response from the RBI has said it has not issued any specific direction in this regard or prescribed any parameters to assess the loss suffered by a customer.
Even under the RTI response, all public sectors banks have washed their hands off any responsibility.
According to the information availed by the lawyer, the unanimous reason given by the 19 banks, including Bank of India, Oriental Bank of Commerce, Punjab National Bank, UCO and Canara, among others, is that “the relationship they have with customers with regard to lockers is that of lessee (landlord) and lessor (tenant)”.
The banks have contended that in such a relationship, the lessor is responsible for his or her valuables kept in the locker which is owned by the bank.
Some banks, in their locker hiring agreements, have made it clear that any item stored in the locker is at the customer’s own risk and he or she may, in their own interest, insure the valuables.
The common feature of all locker hiring agreements states, “As per safe deposit memorandum of hiring locker, the bank will not be responsible for any loss or damage of the contents kept in the safe deposit vault as a result of any act of war or civil disorder or theft or burglary and the contents will be kept by the hirer at his or her sole risk and responsibility.
“While the bank will exercise all such normal precautions, it does not accept any liability or responsibility for any loss or damage whatsoever sustained to items deposited with it. Accordingly, hirers are advised in their own interest to insure any item of value deposited in a safe deposit locker in the bank,” they have said.
Aggrieved by the responses, the lawyer—Kush Kalra—raised questions before the CCI—why not just keep the valuables at home after insuring them, instead of paying rent to the bank for a locker when it is not going to take any responsibility for the contents.
He alleged that all these banks, also including the State Bank of India, Indian Overseas Bank, Syndicate Bank, Allahabad Bank and others have formed a “cartel” to indulge in such “anti-competitive” practices.
He further alleged that the banks by forming an association or cartel are “trying to limit the improvement of services which is directly affecting the competition in the market and interests of the consumer”.
The lawyer has sought a probe under the Competition Act into the allegation of cartelisation by the banks in respect of the locker service. PTI

Aadhaar not valid for travel to Nepal, Bhutan: Home ministry

By PTI | Updated: Jun 25, 2017, 11.59 AM IST NEW DELHI: Aadhaar is not a valid identification document for Indians travelling to Nepal and Bhutan, the Union home ministry has said.
Indians can travel to Nepal and Bhutan--both countries for which they don't need visas--if they possess a valid national passport or election ID card issued by the Election Commission.
Moreover, to ease travel, persons over 65 and below 15 years can show documents with photographs to confirm their age and identity. These include PAN card, driving licence, Central Government Health Service (CGHS) card and ration card but not Aadhaar.

Strange behaviour of LIC Pensioners Top Leaders

Dear Editor

Recently a confidential letter written by ED (Personnel) at LIC C O Mumbai to MOF GOI has come into public domain.
We were expecting that all leaders will immediately come into action as contents of said letter are totally contradictory to position taken up by LIC in our legal battle at Delhi High Court where arguments came to close on 21st February 2017  and verdict against Pensioners was delivered on 27th April 2017
But nothing of the sort has happened.
Really , it is highly disturbing as well as  a case of very strange behaviour by top leaders of all  LIC Pensioners Associations.
One thing more, LIC management tells MOF in said letter about formation of a joint front by various unions for LIC employees
Whether our leaders are going to learn anything or still they wish to  continue with their very large ego  and befooling their cadres as usual  telling we are fighting for all pensioners with our full strength.
God bless such great leaders whose  eyes are closed due to presence of " I  " there

GST i.e Goods and service tax or according to our Rajasthani folks GST means Ghadho saaro Tax. Yes off course it is not like this but for general public who are still not aware of what is GST and what changes are to be implying to them after the implementation of GST.
Through this article, I don’t make any attention towards the point that what is GST and how will our Government take any action for its implementation.
Here I only present the current and after scenario which is directly or indirectly related to common man.

Re: Clarification reg. M C Jain vs. LICI

Dear sir,

I am a life member from inception of  Airief. I retired as class 2 officer (development officer as direct recruit) having put in a service of 30 years, retired on 31 Aug 1992. My strong belief is l am also eligible to get the benefits  due to me  as per the  honourable court order.
I represented the matter quoting  direction of the court  to the dn.office, zonal office and to central office. SINCE I did not get any reply from anywhere for my two reminders, l approached  the minister for state finance, GOI. I got a response asking me to approach  one Sri.Srinivas Rao, economic advisor dept of financial services (insurance division),12 B,3rd floor,jeevan deep building. Sansad marg,New Delhi.
I submitted a representation with all correspondences made and requested him to direct LIC to honour  the direction of the court. And in the meantime I received a letter from central office stating that the petitioner would be entitled for revised pay scale as per notification dated 18/7/1996 with consequential benefits.
Immediately I addressed another letter to sri. Srinivasrao enclosing  the copy of the central office letter requesting  him  giving two options open  for both
a)LIC may consider the matter leniently to show its magnanimity voluntarily.Here the pensioners are none other than once employees who contributed for the growth of the Institution.
b)the pensioners have the option to move  again honourable court to claim their legitimate benefits. Here it leads to unnecessary litigation again causing both sides financial burden and delay.
In view of this I requested  to insist upon lic to accept the first option to avoid the second option.
I have not received any reply from sri Srinivas rao yet , and in the meantime I got a phone call from zonal office  to submit all correspondences made which I have sent.
WIII you please  throw any light on this and clarify  class 2 officers are also eligible?
with regards,

S.Ananthamurthy from Hospet.

PSLV-C38 Successfully Launches 31 Satellites in a Single Flight
ISRO’s Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle PSLV-C38 successfully launched the 712 kg Cartosat-2 Series Satellite along with 30 co-passenger satellites today from Satish Dhawan Space Centre SHAR, Sriharikota. This is the thirty ninth consecutively successful mission of PSLV.
PSLV-C38 lifted off at 0929 hrs (9:29 am) IST, as planned, from the First Launch Pad. After a flight of about 16 minutes, the satellites achieved a polar Sun Synchronous Orbit of 505 km inclined at an angle of 97.44 degree to the equator (very close to the intended orbit) and in the succeeding seven and a half minutes, all the 31 satellites successfully separated from the PSLV in a predetermined sequence beginning with Cartosat-2 series satellite, followed by NIUSAT and 29 customer satellites. The total number of Indian satellites launched by PSLV now stands at 48.
After separation, the two solar arrays of Cartosat-2 series satellite were deployed automatically and ISRO's Telemetry, Tracking and Command Network (ISTRAC) at Bangalore took over the control of the satellite. In the coming days, the satellite will be brought to its final operational configuration following which it will begin to provide various remote sensing services using its panchromatic (black and white) and multispectral (colour) cameras.
One of the 30 co-passenger satellites carried by PSLV-C38 was the 15 kg NIUSAT, a University/Academic Institute satellite from Nurul Islam University, Tamil Nadu, India. The remaining 29 co-passenger satellites carried were international customer satellites from USA (10), United Kingdom (3), Belgium (3), Italy (3), Austria (1), Chile (1), Czech Republic (1), Finland (1), France (1), Germany (1), Japan (1), Latvia (1), Lithuania (1) and Slovakia (1).
With today’s successful launch, the total number of customer satellites from abroad placed in orbit by India’s workhorse launch vehicle PSLV has reached 209.

Passport application fees reduced for those under 8 years and over 60 years of age: Sushma Swaraj

By PTI | Updated: Jun 23, 2017, 05.12 PM IST
NEW DELHI: Passports would now be in both Hindi and English, instead of just English, External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj announced today.
In changes aimed at easing the process of getting a passport, the minister also announced 10 per cent reduction in passport fee for applicants who are under eight and over 60 and said ration cards could be submitted while applying for tatkal passports.
Giving the option of submitting submit a ration card would greatly help people in rural areas who do not have a PAN card.
Personal details in passports are now printed only in English and Swaraj said she had received several complaints about it.
"Passports should at least be bilingual. All Arab countries have their passport in Arabic, Germany makes it in German and Russia makes it in Russian. Why can't we make it Hindi?
"Now, we have given an order to Nashik Printing Press that passports should be (printed) in Hindi as well. So you will receive passports in Hindi and English," Swaraj said at an event to mark 50 years of the Passport Act, 1967.
The postal department released a commemorative stamp on the occasion. The event was attended by Communications Minister Manoj Sinha and Ministers of State in the External Affairs Ministry V K Singh and M J Akbar.
Swaraj said there was a rise in the demand for passports for the elderly.
"There will be a 10 per cent reduction in passport fee for applicants who are under eight and over 60. And this will be applicable from tomorrow," she announced.
During the Vedic era, she said, eight years was when children were admitted to a gurukul and vanasprartha (a retired life where time is dedicated to social service) falls in the 60-year age group.
Swaraj said she had received several complaints about difficulties in getting a passport.
After studying passport rules, she realised that some norms were "unnecessary, obsolete or impractical".
She also highlighted the steps taken by her ministry in easing rules for getting the international travel document, especially for orphans, single mothers and divorced women.
While applying for tatkal passports, the minister said, applicants could give a copy of their Aadhar card, PAN card or ration card, voter identification card apart from a self- attested letter that he/she does not have any criminal compliant against him/her.
Police verification, a major part of the passport issuing process, takes time, the minister pointed out.
Swaraj asked other states to emulate Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, Delhi, Chandigarh, Gujarat and Goa that complete the police verification process in less than six days.
Swaraj sought to assuage fears of passport department officials and said their promotion and career growth would not be hampered because of Post Office Passport Seva Kendras (PoPSK).
"No work will be done by the ministry that is detrimental to your interests. I take this responsibility that your interests will not be hampered," she told the passport officials.
After the NDA government came to power, the external affairs ministry started PoPSK services in different post offices of the country. In the first phase, it announced 86 such centres and 149 in the second phase.

Did you know your Aadhaar can become inactive? Here's how to check and activate it

Devansh Sharma
Aadhaar has become a crucial document and a 'must have' given its increasing importance for financial transactions and the government's social security schemes.
However, even if you have Aadhaar, did you know it could have become inactive? If you do not use your Aadhaar for three continuous years then it well may become inactive, as per the UIDAI helpline and officials at an Aadhaar enrolment centre.
If your Aadhaar has not been used for the last three consecutive years i.e. you haven't linked it to any bank account or to your PAN or used it for any other transaction such as giving Aadhaar details to EPFO to claim pension and so on then it could have been deactivated.
Here's how to check the status:
On the UIDAI website homepage, under the Aadhaar services tab, there's an option saying 'Verify Aadhaar Number'.
Click here to go to UIDAI homepage
Did you know your Aadhaar can become inactive? Here's how to check and activate it
Clicking 'Verify Aadhaar Number' will redirect you to a new page.
Did you know your Aadhaar can become inactive? Here's how to check and activate it
Enter your Aadhaar number, captcha and click verify. If the green checkmark appears, your Aadhaar is active.
Did you know your Aadhaar can become inactive? Here's how to check and activate it
What to do if your Aadhaar is inactive?
If your Aadhaar is inactive, you need to visit the nearest enrolment centre along with the supporting documents.
Click here to find the nearest enrolment centre
You will be required to fill out the Aadhaar update form and your biometrics will be re-verified and updated. You need to pay a fee of Rs 25 at the enrolment centre for the update. Mentioning a valid mobile number would be mandatory during the process.
Since process to activate the Aadhaar requires your biometrics to be re-verified and updated in the UIDAI database, you need to pay a personal visit to the enrolment centre and this can't be done online or by post. The officials at the Aadhaar enrolment centre will match your new biometrics with the biometrics previously recorded with that Aadhaar number and only if the two sets match then the updation will be done.
The above information was checked by the correspondent from UIDAI helpline and re-verified with officials of a a local enrolment centre in sector 10 Noida, Uttar Pradesh.

Why do away with re-evaluation, Delhi HC asks CBSE

Posted: 21 Jun 2017 04:40 PM PDT
Why do away with re-evaluation, Delhi HC asks CBSE
Why do away with re-evaluation, Delhi HC asks CBSE
“Why should you do away with re- evaluation?” This was a query put to the CBSE by the Delhi High Court after being shown answer sheets where correct responses to questions had been awarded zero marks.
A bench of justices Sanjeev Sachdeva and A K Chawla asked the CBSE to explain such “apparent errors” in evaluation, saying if it happens with only one student, then too that person’s career would be put at stake.
The remark by the court came in response to the claim of the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE), represented by Additional Solicitor General (ASG) Sanjay Jain, that the number of errors in evaluation were minuscule, which is why re-evaluation was done away with.
Not convinced by the CBSE’s argument, the court asked it, whether, for an instance, one can rely on evaluation by a Maths teacher who cannot even correctly total the marks awarded.
This assumes significance as there were news reports recently which said that the CBSE had made errors in totalling of marks awarded to several students in various subjects, including Maths, and the mistakes were brought out when re- verification was opted for.
The bench asked the Board to file on record its governing body and examination committee’s reasoning behind the decision of October last year and listed the matter for hearing on June 23.
It also asked the CBSE to explain how zero marks were awarded to one of the students when the answer was correct as per the marking scheme.
The court’s observations came while hearing several pleas by students, who gave the board exams this year, against the CBSE’s decision to scrap its re-evaluation policy.
The students have also sought parity with an Orissa High Court order directing CBSE to re-evaluate the answer sheets of 150 students of that state.
The Orissa High Court order had come after a CBSE lawyer there had submitted that the re-evaluation policy was still in existence.
However, before the Delhi High Court another CBSE lawyer said the statement made before the Orissa High Court was incorrect and the board is going to appeal against the order directing re-evaluation of the answer sheets.
Today the CBSE told the Delhi High Court that the Orissa High Court would be setting up a special bench to hear the board’s plea.
