Union Ministers Shri Sarbananda Sonowal, Shri Mansukh Mandaviya & Shri Ashwini Vaishnaw discuss aspects relating to Container production

Posted On: 15 AUG 2022 8:28PM by PIB Delhi

A high powered meeting was held between Union Minister of Ports, Shipping & Waterways and Ayush, Shri Sarbananda Sonowal and the Union Minister of Railways, Communications and Electronics & Information Technology, Shri Ashwini Vaishnaw in presence of the Union Minister of Health & Family Welfare and Chemicals & Fertiliser, Shri  Mansukh Mandaviya at New Delhi today. The  meeting was held to deliberate and facilitate an eco system for Container production under Make In India programme.

In a move to make India ‘Atmanirbhar’ in its requirement for containers, the high-powered meeting deliberated various aspects in this regard. With a cluster base manufacturing in focus, the CONCOR will be working closely with the Ministry of Ports, Shipping & Waterways (MoPSW). The meeting also discussed how the availability of Make In India containers may open up the avenue for domestic cargo transportation using the vast expanse of inland waterways of India. Various ways and means to encourage Indian producers of containers were also discussed. In the meeting, the ministers also discussed the possibility of movement of bulk cargos like cement, foodgrains, fertilisers etc through coastal and inland waterways in containerised form. This will contribute to reduction in the cost of logistics, handling charges as it will be through an economical, ecological & easier mode of transportation.

Earlier, a committee was formed comprising of Joint Secretary (Ports), Joint Secretary (Customs), Joint Secretary (Logistics), Joint Secretary (Steel), Representative from CONCOR and NICDC to assess the demand of containers in domestic trade, EXIM trade as well as the problem faced in the domestic manufacturing of containers.

The MoPSW also interacted with the representatives from CONCOR, Association of Container Train Operators (ACTO), steel manufacturing companies, container manufacturers, Container Shipping Line Association (CSLA). In EXIM segment, container availability & space onboard vessels are consistently improving. In the domestic segment, CONCOR has requirement for approximately 50,000 containers in next 3 years. The meeting was an extension to this findings to craft an ecosystem that can help domestic producers to produce Make In India containers with an ultimate aim to help our trading community in the EXIM sector & help realise the vision of PM to make India a USD 5 Trillion economy.

UIDAI enrolls over 79 lakh children under Bal Aadhaar initiative in last four months

The Unique Identification Authority has enrolled more than 79 lakh children in the 0 – 5 age group during the first four months (April – July) of the current financial year.

This is part of a renewed effort to reach out to more children in the 0-5 age group under the Bal Aadhaar initiative and help parents and children avail multiple benefits. While 2.64 crore children in the 0-5 age group had Bal Aadhaar by the end of 31 March 2022, this number has increased to 3.43 crore by the end of July 2022.

Bal Aadhaar registration is progressing very well, with increased speed across the country. Enrolments of children in the 0-5 age group in states like Himachal Pradesh and Haryana have already covered more than 70% of the targeted age group. Registration of children (0-5 age group) has also done exceedingly well in several other states and UTs including Jammu and Kashmir, Mizoram, Delhi, Andhra Pradesh and Lakshadweep.

Over all, Aadhaar saturation at present is around 94%. Aadhaar saturation among adults is almost 100%. Aadhaar is now a catalyst of both, ease of living and ease of doing business.

UIDAI and its regional offices have been constantly encouraging residents to come forward and register their children under Bal Aadhaar initiative. Bal Aadhaar works as a facilitator in availing several welfare benefits, and also works as a digital photo identity for children right from birth.

Children in the age group of 0-5 years are issued Bal Aadhaar. Collection of biometric (finger prints and iris)  is a key feature in issuing Aadhaar as the same is required to establish uniqueness based on de-duplication of these biometrics. However, for Aadhaar enrolment of children in the age group of 0-5 years, these biometrics are not collected.

Aadhaar enrolment of children in the age group of 0-5 years are carried out based on facial image of the child, and biometric authentication of the parent/guardian (having a valid Aadhaar). A proof of relationship document (preferably birth certificate) is collected at the time of enrolment for Bal Aadhaar.

To differentiate the Bal Aadhaar from normal Aadhaar, it is issued in blue colour, with a remark that this is valid till the child attains the age of 5 years. On attaining the age of 5, the child is required to furnish his or her biometrics at an Aadhaar Seva Kendra to complete a process called mandatory biometric update (MBU).

The MBU process goes through a de-duplication process. After completion of this process, the child is issued a normal Aadhaar without any change in the Aadhaar number.

यूआईडीएआई ने पिछले चार महीनों में बाल आधार पहल के तहत 79 लाख से अधिक बच्चों का नामांकन किया है

Posted On: 15 AUG 2022 4:47PM by PIB Delhi

विशिष्ट पहचान प्राधिकरण ने चालू वित्त वर्ष के पहले चार महीनों (अप्रैल- जुलाई) के दौरान 0 से 5 आयु समूह के 79 लाख से अधिक बच्चों का नामांकन किया है।

यह बाल आधार पहल के तहत 0 से 5 आयु समूह के अधिक से अधिक बच्चों तक पहुंचने तथा माता-पिता और बच्चों को विभिन्न प्रकार के फायदों का लाभ उठाने में सहायता करने के लिए एक नए प्रयास का हिस्सा है। जहां 31 मार्च, 2022 के अंत तक 0 से 5 आयु समूह के 2.64 करोड़ बच्चों को बाल आधार प्राप्त हो चुका था, जुलाई 2022 के अंत तक यह संख्या बढ़ कर 3.43 करोड़ तक पहुंच गई है।

देश भर में बढ़ी हुई गति के साथ बाल आधार पंजीकरण बहुत अच्छी तरह से प्रगति कर रहा है। हिमाचल प्रदेश और हरियाणा जैसे राज्यो में 0 से 5 आयु समूह के बच्चों का नामांकन पहले ही लक्षित आयु समूह के 70 प्रतिशत से अधिक को कवर कर चुका है। बच्चों के पंजीकरण (0 से 5 आयु समूह) ने जम्मू एवं कश्मीर, मिजोरम, दिल्ली, आंध्र प्रदेश और लक्षद्वीप सहित कई अन्य राज्यों एवं केंद्र शासित प्रदेशों में भी अत्यधिक बढ़िया प्रदर्शन किया है।

कुल मिला कर, वर्तमान में आधार संतृप्ति लगभग 94 प्रतिशत है। वयस्कों में आधार संतृप्ति लगभग 100 प्रतिशत है। आधार अब जीवन यापन में सुगमता तथा व्यवसाय करने में सुगमता दोनों में ही उत्प्रेरक यानी सहायता उपलब्ध कराने वाला बन गया है।

यूआईडीएआई और इसके क्षेत्रीय कार्यालय निरंतर निवासियों को आगे आने और बाल आधार पहल के तहत अपने बच्चों को पंजीकृत करने के लिए प्रोत्साहित कर रहे हैं। बाल आधार कई प्रकार के कल्याणकारी लाभों का फायदा उठाने में सुगमकर्ता का काम करता है तथा जन्म से ही बच्चों के लिए एक डिजिटल फोटो पहचान के रूप में भी काम करता है।

0 से 5 आयु समूह के बच्चों को बाल आधार जारी किया जाता है। आधार जारी करने में बायोमीट्रिक (उंगली का निशान एवं आंख की पुतली) का संग्रह एक प्रमुख विशेषता है क्योंकि इन बायोमीट्रिक्स के डी-डुप्लीकेशन के आधार पर विशिष्टता स्थापित करने के लिए इसकी आवश्यकता होती है। बहरहाल, 0 से 5 आयु समूह के बच्चों के आधार नामांकन के लिए इन बायोमीट्रिक्स को एकत्र करने की आवश्यकता नहीं होती है।

0 से 5 आयु समूह के बच्चों का आधार नामांकन बच्चे की चेहरे की छवि और माता पिता/अभिभावक के बायोमीट्रिक प्रमाणीकरण (वैध आधार होने) के आधार पर किया जाता है। बाल आधार के लिए नामांकन के समय संबंध दस्तावेज (विशेषतः) का प्रमाण एकत्र किया जाता है।

बाल आधार को सामान्य आधार से अलग करने के लिए, इस टिप्पणी के साथ कि यह तब तक वैध है जब तक बच्चा पांच वर्ष की आयु प्राप्त नहीं कर लेता, इसे नीले रंग में जारी किया जाता है। पांच वर्ष की आयु प्राप्त कर लेने के बाद, बच्चे को अनिवार्य बायोमीट्रिक अपडेट (एमबीयू) नामक एक प्रक्रिया को पूरी करने के लिए एक आधार सेवा केंद्र में अपना बायोमीट्रिक्स प्रस्तुत करना आवश्यक है।

एमबीयू प्रक्रिया एक डी-डुप्लीकेशन प्रक्रिया के माध्यम से पूरी होती है। इस प्रक्रिया के पूरी होने के बाद, बच्चे को आधार संख्या में बिना किसी बदलाव के सामान्य आधार जारी किया जाता है।  

ADDRESS TO THE NATION BY HON’BLE PRESIDENT OF INDIA SMT. DROUPADI MURMU ON THE EVE OF THE 76TH INDEPENDENCE DAY

souce: Press Information Bureau, President’s Secretariat, Govt. of India

Posted On: 14 AUG 2022 7:32PM by PIB Delhi

My dear fellow citizens,

Namaskar!

My heartiest greetings in advance to all Indians living in the country and abroad on the eve of the 76th Independence Day. I am delighted to address you on this momentous occasion. India is completing 75 years as an independent nation. Fourteenth August is observed as ‘Partition Horrors Remembrance Day’ so as to promote social harmony, unity and empowerment of people. Tomorrow marks the day when we had freed ourselves from the shackles of colonial rulers and decided to reshape our destiny. As all of us celebrate the anniversary of that day, we bow to all those men and women who made enormous sacrifices to make it possible for us to live in a free India.

It is a cause of celebration not only for all of us but also for every advocate of democracy around the world. When India won independence, there were many international leaders and experts who were skeptical about the success of democratic form of government in India. They had their reasons to be doubtful. In those days, democracy was limited to economically advanced nations. India, after so many years of exploitation at the hands of foreign rulers, was marked by poverty and illiteracy. But we Indians proved the skeptics wrong. Democracy not only grew roots in this soil, it was enriched too.

In most other well-established democracies, women had to wage long-drawn struggles to get the right to vote. But India adopted universal adult franchise right since the beginning of the Republic. Thus, the makers of modern India enabled each and every adult citizen to participate in the collective process of nation-building. Thus, India can be credited to have helped the world discover the true potential of democracy.

I believe this was not a coincidence. At the beginning of civilisation, saints and seers of this land had developed a vision of humanity that was defined by equality of all; indeed, oneness of all. The great Freedom Struggle and its leaders like Mahatma Gandhi re-discovered our ancient values for modern times. Then, it is no wonder our democracy has Indian characteristics. Gandhiji advocated decentralisation and power to the people.

For 75 weeks now, the nation has been commemorating these noble ideals that won us freedom. In March 2021, we began the ‘Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav’ with the re-enactment of the Dandi March. This way, our celebrations began with a tribute to that watershed event which had put our struggle on the world map. This festival is dedicated to the people of India. Based on the success achieved by the people, the resolve to build ‘Atmanirbhar Bharat’ is also a part of this Mahotsav. Citizens from all age-groups have keenly participated in a series of events held across the country. This grand festival is going ahead with the ‘Har Ghar Tiranga Abhiyan’. The Indian tricolours are fluttering in every nook and corner of the country. Great martyrs would have been thrilled to see the spirit of the Independence Movement coming alive again on such a massive scale.

Our glorious Freedom Struggle was waged bravely across the vast territory of our country. Many great freedom fighters did their duty and passed on the torch of awakening leaving little trace of their heroic deeds. Forgotten for long were many heroes and their struggles, especially among the peasant and tribal populations. The government’s decision last year to observe 15th November as ‘Janajatiya Gaurav Divas’ is welcome because our tribal heroes are not merely local or regional icons but they inspire the entire nation.

Dear Citizens,

For a nation, particularly an ancient one such as India, the passage of 75 years is merely a blink of an eye. But for us as individuals, it is a lifetime. Senior citizens among us have witnessed a dramatic change in their lifetime. They have seen how, after Independence, all the generations have toiled hard; how we met great challenges and how we have taken charge of our destiny. The lessons learnt in the process will prove useful as we move towards the next milestone in the journey of the nation – the Amrit Kaal, the 25 years to the celebration of the centenary of our Independence.

By the year 2047, we will have fully realised the dreams of our freedom fighters. We will have given a concrete shape to the vision of those who, led by Babasaheb Bhimrao Ambedkar, drafted the Constitution. We are already on course to build an Atmanirbhar Bharat, an India that would have realised its true potential.

The world has seen a new India rising in recent years, more so after the outbreak of COVID-19. Our response to the pandemic has been appreciated everywhere. We launched the biggest vaccination drive in human history with vaccines manufactured in the country itself. Last month we crossed the 200-crore mark in cumulative vaccine coverage. In combating the pandemic, our achievements have been better than those of many developed countries. For this feat, we are grateful to our scientists, doctors, nurses, paramedics and the staff associated with vaccination.   

The pandemic has uprooted lives and also economies in the entire world. When the world has been battling the economic consequences of the great crisis, India got its act together and is now moving forward. India is among the fastest growing major economies in the world. India’s start-up eco-system ranks high in the world. The success of start-ups in our country, especially the growing number of unicorns is a shining example of our industrial progress. The government and policy-makers deserve credit for beating the global trend and helping the economy flourish. During the last few years, unprecedented progress has been made in the development of physical and digital infrastructure. Through the Pradhan Mantri Gati-Shakti Yojana, all the modes of connectivity based on water, land, air etc. are being integrated in the whole country to enable seamless transportation across the country. For the vibrancy of growth visible in our country, credit must also be given to workers and farmers whose hard work has made it possible and entrepreneurs whose business acumen has created wealth. What is all the more heartening is that the growth is becoming more inclusive and regional disparities too are reducing.

But this is only the beginning. A series of economic reforms and policy initiatives have been preparing the ground for a long term. Digital India, for example, is creating the bedrock of a knowledge economy. The ‘National Education Policy’ is aimed at preparing the future generation for the next stage of industrial revolution while also reconnecting it with our heritage.

Economic success is leading to an ease in living too. Economic reforms are rightly accompanied by innovative welfare initiatives. A home of one’s own is no longer a dream for the poor, but a reality for more and more people, thanks to the ‘Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana’. Similarly, under the ‘Jal Jeevan Mission’, tap water connection is being provided to every household since the launch of the ‘Har Ghar Jal’ scheme.

The aim of these and many other similar efforts is to provide basic amenities to all, particularly the poor. The keyword for India today is compassion; for the downtrodden, for the needy and for those on the margins. Some of our national values have been incorporated in our Constitution as the Fundamental Duties of the citizens. I appeal to every citizen to know about their Fundamental Duties and follow them in letter and spirit so that our nation reaches new heights.

Dear Citizens,

At the core of the transformation, we have been witnessing in healthcare, education, economy as well as a number of related areas is the stress on good governance. When work is done with the spirit of ‘Nation First’, it is bound to reflect in every decision and every sector. This is also reflected in India’s standing in the world.

India’s new-found confidence stems from the spirit of its youth, its farmers, and above all, its women. Gender inequalities are reducing and women are moving ahead, breaking many glass ceilings. Their increasing participation in social and political processes will prove decisive. At the grassroots level, we have more than 14 lakh elected women representatives in Panchayati Raj Institutions.   

Our daughters are the biggest hope for the nation. Some of them brought laurels for the country at the recently held Commonwealth Games. Of course, India’s sportspersons have been making the country proud by their performance in international competitions. A large number of our winners come from underprivileged segments of society. From becoming fighter pilots to space scientists, our daughters are scaling great heights.

Dear Citizens,

In celebrating Independence Day, we are celebrating our ‘Bharatiyata’. Our country is full of diversity. But, at the same time, we all have something in common. It is this common thread which binds all of us together and inspires us to walk together with the spirit of Ek Bharat, Shreshtha Bharat.

India is a very beautiful country, also because of its mountains, rivers, lakes and forests and the animals and birds that live in such landscapes. When the environment is facing new challenges, we must remain determined to preserve all that makes India beautiful. Conserving water, soil and bio-diversity is our duty towards our children. Caring for Mother Nature has been part and parcel of Indian culture. With our traditional life style, we Indians can show the way to the rest of the world. Yoga and Ayurveda are India’s invaluable gifts to the world. Their popularity is on the rise all over the globe.

Dear fellow citizens,

Our beloved country has given us everything we have in our life. We should pledge to give everything we can for the sake of safety, security, progress and prosperity of our country. Our existence will become meaningful only in building a glorious India. The great nationalist poet Kuvempu, who enriched Indian literature through Kannada language, had written:

Naanu aliwe, Neenu aliwe

Namma elubugal mele

Mooduvudu – Mooduvudu

Navabharatda leele

Which means:

‘I will pass

So will you

But on our bones will arise

The great tale of a new India’

This is a clarion call of the nationalist poet for making total sacrifice for the motherland and upliftment of fellow citizens. To follow these ideals is my special appeal to the youth of the country who are going to build the India of 2047.

Before I conclude, I would like to extend Independence Day greetings to the armed forces, to the members of Indian missions abroad, and to the Indian diaspora who continue to make their motherland proud. My best wishes to all of you.

Jai Hind!

भारत की माननीया राष्ट्रपति श्रीमती द्रौपदी मुर्मु का 76वें स्वाधीनता दिवस की पूर्व संध्या पर राष्ट्र के नाम संदेश

Posted On: 14 AUG 2022 7:18PM by PIB Delhi

मेरे प्यारे देशवासियो,

नमस्कार!

छिहत्तरवें स्वाधीनता दिवस की पूर्व संध्या पर देश-विदेश में रहने वाले सभी भारतीयों को मैं हार्दिक बधाई देती हूं। इस गौरवपूर्ण अवसर पर आपको संबोधित करते हुए मुझे बहुत खुशी हो रही है। एक स्वाधीन देश के रूप में भारत 75 साल पूरे कर रहा है। 14 अगस्त के दिन को विभाजन-विभीषिका स्मृति-दिवस के रूप में मनाया जा रहा है। इस स्मृति दिवस को मनाने का उद्देश्य सामाजिक सद्भाव, मानव सशक्तीकरण और एकता को बढ़ावा देना है। 15 अगस्त 1947 के दिन हमने औपनिवेशिक शासन की बेड़ियों को काट दिया था। उस दिन हमने अपनी नियति को नया स्वरूप देने का निर्णय लिया था। उस शुभ-दिवस की वर्षगांठ मनाते हुए हम लोग सभी स्वाधीनता सेनानियों को सादर नमन करते हैं। उन्होंने अपना सर्वस्व बलिदान कर दिया ताकि हम सब एक स्वाधीन भारत में सांस ले सकें।

भारत की आजादी हमारे साथ-साथ विश्व में लोकतंत्र के हर समर्थक के लिए उत्सव का विषय है। जब भारत स्वाधीन हुआ तो अनेक अंतरराष्ट्रीय नेताओं और विचारकों ने हमारी लोकतान्त्रिक शासन प्रणाली की सफलता के विषय में आशंका व्यक्त की थी। उनकी इस आशंका के कई कारण भी थे। उन दिनों लोकतंत्र आर्थिक रूप से उन्नत राष्ट्रों तक ही सीमित था। विदेशी शासकों ने वर्षों तक भारत का शोषण किया था। इस कारण भारत के लोग गरीबी और अशिक्षा से जूझ रहे थे। लेकिन भारतवासियों ने उन लोगों की आशंकाओं को गलत साबित कर दिया। भारत की मिट्टी में लोकतंत्र की जड़ें लगातार गहरी और मजबूत होती गईं।

अधिकांश लोकतान्त्रिक देशों में वोट देने का अधिकार प्राप्त करने के लिए महिलाओं को लंबे समय तक संघर्ष करना पड़ा था। लेकिन हमारे गणतंत्र की शुरुआत से ही भारत ने सार्वभौमिक वयस्क मताधिकार को अपनाया। इस प्रकार आधुनिक भारत के निर्माताओं ने प्रत्येक वयस्क नागरिक को राष्ट्र-निर्माण की सामूहिक प्रक्रिया में भाग लेने का अवसर प्रदान किया। भारत को यह श्रेय जाता है कि उसने विश्व समुदाय को लोकतंत्र की वास्तविक क्षमता से परिचित कराया।

मैं मानती हूं कि भारत की यह उपलब्धि केवल संयोग नहीं थी। सभ्यता के आरंभ में ही भारत-भूमि के संतों और महात्माओं ने सभी प्राणियों की समानता व एकता पर आधारित जीवन-दृष्टि विकसित कर ली थी। महात्मा गांधी जैसे महानायकों के नेतृत्व में हुए स्वाधीनता संग्राम के दौरान हमारे प्राचीन जीवन-मूल्यों को आधुनिक युग में फिर से स्थापित किया गया। इसी कारण से हमारे लोकतंत्र में भारतीयता के तत्व दिखाई देते हैं। गांधीजी सत्ता के विकेंद्रीकरण और जन-साधारण को अधिकार-सम्पन्न बनाने के पक्षधर थे।

पिछले 75 सप्ताह से हमारे देश में स्वाधीनता संग्राम के महान आदर्शों का स्मरण किया जा रहा है। ‘आज़ादी का अमृत महोत्सव’ मार्च 2021 में दांडी यात्रा की स्मृति को फिर से जीवंत रूप देकर शुरू किया गया। उस युगांतरकारी आंदोलन ने हमारे संघर्ष को विश्व-पटल पर स्थापित किया। उसे सम्मान देकर हमारे इस महोत्सव की शुरुआत की गई। यह महोत्सव भारत की जनता को समर्पित है। देशवासियों द्वारा हासिल की गई सफलता के आधार पर ‘आत्मनिर्भर भारत’ के निर्माण का संकल्प भी इस उत्सव का हिस्सा है। हर आयु वर्ग के नागरिक पूरे देश में आयोजित इस महोत्सव के कार्यक्रमों में उत्साहपूर्वक भाग ले रहे हैं। यह भव्य महोत्सव अब ‘हर घर तिरंगा अभियान’ के साथ आगे बढ़ रहा है। आज देश के कोने-कोने में हमारा तिरंगा शान से लहरा रहा है। स्वाधीनता आंदोलन के आदर्शों के प्रति इतने व्यापक स्तर पर लोगों में जागरूकता को देखकर हमारे स्वाधीनता सेनानी अवश्य प्रफुल्लित हुए होते।

हमारा गौरवशाली स्वाधीनता संग्राम इस विशाल भारत-भूमि में बहादुरी के साथ संचालित होता रहा। अनेक महान स्वाधीनता सेनानियों ने वीरता के उदाहरण प्रस्तुत किए और राष्ट्र-जागरण की मशाल अगली पीढ़ी को सौंपी। अनेक वीर योद्धाओं तथा उनके संघर्षों विशेषकर किसानों और आदिवासी समुदाय के वीरों का योगदान एक लंबे समय तक सामूहिक स्मृति से बाहर रहा। पिछले वर्ष से हर 15 नवंबर को ‘जन-जातीय गौरव दिवस’ के रूप में मनाने का सरकार का निर्णय स्वागत-योग्य है। हमारे जन-जातीय महानायक केवल स्थानीय या क्षेत्रीय प्रतीक नहीं हैं बल्कि वे पूरे देश के लिए प्रेरणा का स्रोत हैं।

प्यारे देशवासियो,

एक राष्ट्र के लिए, विशेष रूप से भारत जैसे प्राचीन देश के लंबे इतिहास में, 75 वर्ष का समय बहुत छोटा प्रतीत होता है। लेकिन व्यक्तिगत स्तर पर यह काल-खंड एक जीवन-यात्रा जैसा है। हमारे वरिष्ठ नागरिकों ने अपने जीवनकाल में अद्भुत परिवर्तन देखे हैं। वे गवाह हैं कि कैसे आजादी के बाद सभी पीढ़ियों ने कड़ी मेहनत की, विशाल चुनौतियों का सामना किया और स्वयं अपने भाग्य-विधाता बने। इस दौर में हमने जो कुछ सीखा है वह सब उपयोगी साबित होगा क्योंकि हम राष्ट्र की यात्रा में एक ऐतिहासिक पड़ाव की ओर आगे बढ़ रहे हैं। हम सब 2047 में स्वाधीनता के शताब्दी-उत्सव तक की 25 वर्ष की अवधि यानि भारत के अमृत-काल में प्रवेश कर रहे हैं।

हमारा संकल्प है कि वर्ष 2047 तक हम अपने स्वाधीनता सेनानियों के सपनों को पूरी तरह साकार कर लेंगे। इसी काल-खंड में हम बाबासाहब भीमराव आम्बेडकर के नेतृत्व में संविधान का निर्माण करने वाली विभूतियों के vision को साकार कर चुके होंगे। एक आत्मनिर्भर भारत के निर्माण में हम पहले से ही तत्पर हैं। वह एक ऐसा भारत होगा जो अपनी संभावनाओं को साकार कर चुका होगा।

दुनिया ने हाल के वर्षों में एक नए भारत को उभरते हुए देखा है, खासकर COVID-19 के प्रकोप के बाद। इस महामारी का सामना हमने जिस तरह किया है उसकी सर्वत्र सराहना की गई है। हमने देश में ही निर्मित वैक्सीन के साथ मानव इतिहास का सबसे बड़ा टीकाकरण अभियान शुरू किया। पिछले महीने हमने दो सौ करोड़ वैक्सीन कवरेज का आंकड़ा पार कर लिया है। इस महामारी का सामना करने में हमारी उपलब्धियां विश्व के अनेक विकसित देशों से अधिक रही हैं। इस प्रशंसनीय उपलब्धि के लिए हम अपने वैज्ञानिकों, डॉक्टरों, नर्सों, पैरामेडिक्स और टीकाकरण से जुड़े कर्मचारियों के आभारी हैं। इस आपदा में कोरोना योद्धाओं द्वारा किया गया योगदान विशेष रूप से प्रशंसनीय है।

कोरोना महामारी ने पूरे विश्व में मानव-जीवन और अर्थ-व्यवस्थाओं पर कठोर प्रहार किया है। जब दुनिया इस गंभीर संकट के आर्थिक परिणामों से जूझ रही थी तब भारत ने स्वयं को संभाला और अब पुनः तीव्र गति से आगे बढ़ने लगा है। इस समय भारत दुनिया में सबसे तेजी से बढ़ रही प्रमुख अर्थ-व्यवस्थाओं में से एक है। भारत के start-up eco-system का विश्व में ऊंचा स्थान है। हमारे देश में start-ups की सफलता, विशेषकर unicorns की बढ़ती हुई संख्या, हमारी औद्योगिक प्रगति का शानदार उदाहरण है। विश्व में चल रही आर्थिक कठिनाई के विपरीत, भारत की अर्थ-व्यवस्था को तेजी से आगे बढ़ाने का श्रेय सरकार तथा नीति-निर्माताओं को जाता है। पिछले कुछ वर्षों के दौरान physical और digital infrastructure के विकास में अभूतपूर्व प्रगति हुई है। प्रधानमंत्री गति-शक्ति योजना के द्वारा connectivity को बेहतर बनाया जा रहा है। परिवहन के जल, थल, वायु आदि पर आधारित सभी माध्यमों को भली-भांति एक दूसरे के साथ जोड़कर पूरे देश में आवागमन को सुगम बनाया जा रहा है। प्रगति के प्रति हमारे देश में दिखाई दे रहे उत्साह का श्रेय कड़ी मेहनत करने वाले हमारे किसान व मजदूर भाई-बहनों को भी जाता है। साथ ही व्यवसाय की सूझ-बूझ से समृद्धि का सृजन करने वाले हमारे उद्यमियों को भी जाता है। सबसे अधिक खुशी की बात यह है कि देश का आर्थिक विकास और अधिक समावेशी होता जा रहा है तथा क्षेत्रीय विषमताएं भी कम हो रही हैं।

लेकिन यह तो केवल शुरुआत ही है। दूरगामी परिणामों वाले सुधारों और नीतियों द्वारा इन परिवर्तनों की आधार-भूमि पहले से ही तैयार की जा रही थी। उदाहरण के लिए ‘Digital India’ अभियान द्वारा ज्ञान पर आधारित अर्थ-व्यवस्था की आधारशिला स्थापित की जा रही है। ‘राष्ट्रीय शिक्षा नीति’ का उद्देश्य भावी पीढ़ी को औद्योगिक क्रांति के अगले चरण के लिए तैयार करना तथा उन्हें हमारी विरासत के साथ फिर से जोड़ना भी है।

आर्थिक प्रगति से देशवासियों का जीवन और भी सुगम होता जा रहा है। आर्थिक सुधारों के साथ-साथ जन-कल्याण के नए कदम भी उठाए जा रहे हैं। ‘प्रधानमंत्री आवास योजना’ की सहायता से गरीब के पास स्वयं का घर होना अब एक सपना नहीं रह गया है बल्कि सच्चाई का रूप ले चुका है। इसी तरह ‘जल जीवन मिशन’ के अंतर्गत ‘हर घर जल’ योजना पर कार्य चल रहा है।

इन उपायों का और इसी तरह के अन्य प्रयासों का उद्देश्य सभी को, विशेषकर गरीबों को, बुनियादी सुविधाएं प्रदान करना है। भारत में आज संवेदनशीलता व करुणा के जीवन-मूल्यों को प्रमुखता दी जा रही है। इन जीवन-मूल्यों का मुख्य उद्देश्य हमारे वंचित, जरूरतमंद तथा समाज के हाशिये पर रहने वाले लोगों के कल्याण हेतु कार्य करना है। हमारे राष्ट्रीय मूल्यों को, नागरिकों के मूल कर्तव्यों के रूप में, भारत के संविधान में समाहित किया गया है। देश के प्रत्येक नागरिक से मेरा अनुरोध है कि वे अपने मूल कर्तव्यों के बारे में जानें, उनका पालन करें, जिससे हमारा राष्ट्र नई ऊंचाइयों को छू सके।    

प्यारे देशवासियो,

आज देश में स्वास्थ्य, शिक्षा और अर्थ-व्यवस्था तथा इनके साथ जुड़े अन्य क्षेत्रों में जो अच्छे बदलाव दिखाई दे रहे हैं उनके मूल में सुशासन पर विशेष बल दिए जाने की प्रमुख भूमिका है। जब ‘राष्ट्र सर्वोपरि’ की भावना से कार्य किया जाता है तो उसका प्रभाव प्रत्येक निर्णय एवं कार्य-क्षेत्र में दिखाई देता है। यह बदलाव विश्व समुदाय में भारत की प्रतिष्ठा में भी दिखाई दे रहा है।

भारत के नए आत्म-विश्वास का स्रोत देश के युवा, किसान और सबसे बढ़कर देश की महिलाएं हैं। अब देश में स्त्री-पुरुष के आधार पर असमानता कम हो रही है। महिलाएं अनेक रूढ़ियों और बाधाओं को पार करते हुए आगे बढ़ रही हैं। सामाजिक और राजनीतिक प्रक्रियाओं में उनकी बढ़ती भागीदारी निर्णायक साबित होगी। आज हमारी पंचायती राज संस्थाओं में निर्वाचित महिला प्रतिनिधियों की संख्या चौदह लाख से कहीं अधिक है।

भारत अपने पहाड़ों, नदियों, झीलों और वनों तथा उन क्षेत्रों में रहने वाले जीव-जंतुओं के कारण भी अत्यंत आकर्षक है। आज जब हमारे पर्यावरण के सम्मुख नई-नई चुनौतियां आ रही हैं तब हमें भारत की सुंदरता से जुड़ी हर चीज का दृढ़तापूर्वक संरक्षण करना चाहिए। जल, मिट्टी और जैविक विविधता का संरक्षण हमारी भावी पीढ़ियों के प्रति हमारा कर्तव्य है। प्रकृति की देखभाल माँ की तरह करना हमारी भारतीय संस्कृति का अभिन्न अंग रहा है। हम भारतवासी अपनी पारंपरिक जीवन-शैली से पूरी दुनिया को सही राह दिखा सकते हैं। योग एवं आयुर्वेद विश्व-समुदाय को भारत का अमूल्य उपहार है जिसकी लोकप्रियता पूरी दुनिया में निरंतर बढ़ रही है।  

प्यारे देशवासियो,

हमारे पास जो कुछ भी है वह हमारी मातृभूमि का दिया हुआ है। इसलिए हमें अपने देश की सुरक्षा, प्रगति और समृद्धि के लिए अपना सब कुछ अर्पण कर देने का संकल्प लेना चाहिए। हमारे अस्तित्व की सार्थकता एक महान भारत के निर्माण में ही दिखाई देगी। कन्नड़ा भाषा के माध्यम से भारतीय साहित्य को समृद्ध करने वाले महान राष्ट्रवादी कवि ‘कुवेम्पु’ ने कहा है:

नानु अलिवेनीनु अलिवे

नम्मा एलुबुगल मेले

मूडुवुदु मूडुवुदु

नवभारत-द लीले।

अर्थात

मैं नहीं रहूंगा

न रहोगे तुम

परन्तु हमारी अस्थियों पर

उदित होगीउदित होगी

नये भारत की महागाथा।‌

उस राष्ट्रवादी कवि का यह स्पष्ट आह्वान है कि मातृ-भूमि तथा देशवासियों के उत्थान के लिए सर्वस्व बलिदान करना हमारा आदर्श होना चाहिए। इन आदर्शों को अपनाने के लिए मैं अपने देश के युवाओं से विशेष अनुरोध करती हूं। वे युवा ही 2047 के भारत का निर्माण करेंगे।

अपना सम्बोधन समाप्त करने से पहले मैं भारत के सशस्त्र बलों, विदेशों में स्थित भारतीय मिशनों और अपनी मातृभूमि को गौरवान्वित करने वाले प्रवासी-भारतीयों को स्वाधीनता दिवस की बधाई देती हूं। मैं सभी देशवासियों के सुखद और मंगलमय जीवन के लिए शुभकामनाएं व्यक्त करती हूं।

धन्यवाद,

जय हिन्द!

Posted On: 10 AUG 2022 7:46PM by PIB Delhi

In order to provide a defined framework for collection of specified details relating to international passengers travelling by Air, the Passenger Name Record Information Regulations, 2022 (the ‘Regulations’) were notified on 08th August, 2022. These regulations are meant to enhance detection, interdiction and investigative capabilities of Customs Authorities using non-intrusive techniques for combating offences related to smuggling of contraband such as narcotics, psychotropic substances, gold, arms & ammunition etc. that directly impact national security. This mechanism is being widely used by border management agencies of several administrations.

The salient points of the Regulations are as under:

  • The Regulations require the operator of Aircrafts (i.e airlines) to transmit specified information electronically to the designated Customs System. Passengers are not required to individually submit any information to Customs, neither do they need to furnish any additional information to the Airlines on account of these regulations. Airlines are already collecting this information under the aegis of the Chicago Convention on International Civil Aviation.
  • The data exchange between the Airlines and the Customs Systems is through the PNRGOV EDIFACT message format. This is a standard electronic message format endorsed jointly by the World Customs Organisation (WCO), International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) and the International Air Transport Association (IATA) and is widely used internationally.
  • Although some data elements included in the Regulations are available from other sources, the objective of these regulations is to obtain this data in advance of departure or arrival of the passengers for analytics by the Customs Risk Management System.
  • The information collected is subject to strict information privacy and data protection and there are adequate legal and administrative safeguards built in. Processing of the information to reveal ethnicity, race, religious or philosophical beliefs, health etc. is strictly prohibited. Hardware and software necessary for data protection has already been envisaged. The information received is used for further processing only by a senior officer of the rank of Principal Additional Director General/Additional Director General.
  • In normal course, the data collected is stored only for five years after which it is disposed of by depersonalisation or anonymisation. The Regulations provide for an extensive and independent system audit and security audit to prevent misuse of the information.

The Regulations strike a good balance between the needs of privacy and the imperatives of security. The Central Board of Indirect Taxes & Customs is committed to work with all stakeholders to enable a smooth transition and implementation of these regulations

The expansion that GeM has achieved is unimaginable, there are about 62,000 government buyers available on GeM and around 49 lakh sellers

The Union Minister for Home & Cooperation, Shri Amit Shah e-launched the onboarding of cooperatives on the Government e Marketplace (GeM) portal in New Delhi today

Source: Press Information Bureau / Ministry of Cooperation, Govt of India

Posted On: 09 AUG 2022 6:48PM by PIB Delhi

This day is important for cooperatives, as GeM has been made available to all cooperative societies in the country

There is immense potential in the cooperative sector and GeM portal will be a very useful platform for expansion of this sector

Under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the Ministry of Cooperation has taken many measures for cooperatives and in the last one year, the Ministry is constantly working on 25 to 30 initiatives

The Cooperative policy is also being prepared with a holistic approach from PACS to APEX, the government has to expand cooperatives, but there is lack of a database, therefore the ministry is also creating a national level database of different category of cooperatives

A population of 60 crores pent their time in worrying about their meals and other daily necessities

Prime Minister Narendra Modi has awakened aspirations of this population of 60 crore by fulfilling their primary needs, by opening bank accounts, providing gas cylinders, toilets, electricity, pure drinking water and free food grains, and cooperatives have the potential to fulfil these aspirations

The cooperative model allowspeople with limited capital to come together and work on a large scale

If a system does not change itself with the times it becomes out dated, therefore it is necessary that the system improves for the expansion of the cooperative sector

This area has been neglected since Independence, however Prime Minister Narendra Modi is accelerating its expansion through historic reforms and modernization

Establishment of a cooperative university is progressing, and will help in training those working in the cooperative sector as well as new employees

An export house is also being registered, for which the process will be completed by December, it will be a platform for export of products by cooperatives

The cooperative sector will not be given second class treatment, however those in the sector will also have to initiate change and bring in transparency

GeM portal will bring transparency into the cooperative sector, farmers and milk producers’ trust in committees and their members will also increase when there is transparency

Shri Narendra Modi has brought transparency in government procurement through the GeM portal, this is a new system, there may be some initial administrative problems, but no one should doubt the intentions of bringing in this new system

Shri Amit Shah said he was confident that the world will recognize this successful transparent model of government procurement in the five years

The expansion that GeM has achieved is unimaginable, there are about 62,000 government buyers available on GeM and around 49 lakh sellers

More than 10,000 products and more than 288 services are listed, so far business worth Rs. 2.78 thousand crore has taken place and this is a huge achievement for GeM

The Union Home and Cooperation Minister, Shri Amit Shah launched the onboarding of cooperatives on the Government e-Marketplace (GeM) portal, today in New Delhi. The program organized by the Ministry of Cooperation, Government of India, the National Cooperative Union of India (NCUI) and GeM was also attended by Union Minister of Commerce and Industry Shri Piyush Goyal, Union Minister of State for Cooperation and North East Region Development Shri B.L. Verma and the NCUI President Shri Dilip Sanghani and many other dignitaries.

In his address, Shri Amit Shah said that today is a very important day in Indian history. In 1942, on August 9, Gandhiji began the Quit India Movement against British Rule and today another important work is being done task is taking place on the occasion of AzadikaAmritMahotsav on August 9, in which access to GeM has been given to cooperative societies in the country.  He said there is immense potential in the cooperative sector and the GeM portal will be a very useful platform for the expansion of this sector. The Union Minister of Cooperation said most of units of the government buy through GeM, so cooperatives should also start preparing for registration for supply on GeM to increase their market. He also appealed to the National Cooperative Union of India (NCUI) to expand marketing of cooperatives and for this there can be no better way than the GeM.

The Cooperation Minister said this sector has been neglected since Independence, but Prime Minister Narendra Modi is accelerating its expansion with historic reforms and modernization. Under the leadership of Shri Modi, the Ministry of Cooperation has taken a number of measures for expansion and in the last year the Ministry has been continuously working on 25 to 30 initiatives.

The government has to expand cooperatives but there is no database, therefore the ministry is also creating a national level database of different categories of cooperatives. Arrangements for training will also be made available. Shri Shah said an export house is also being registered the work for which will be completed by December. It will provide a platform for export from cooperatives across the country. He said radical changes are also being made in the Multistate Cooperative Act and the government led by Shri Narendra Modi has also decided to computerize all PACS.

 Amit Shah said population size is a great advantage in an economy, because ultimately the population is also the market. Till 2014, India’s population was 130 crore, but the market was only 60 crore, as 70 crore people did not have purchasing capacity. 60 crore people worried about their next meal and other basic needs and generations went through the same ordeal. Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi opened bank accounts, provided gas cylinders, toilets, electricity, pure drinking water and food grains free of cost to the poor and as a result awakened the aspirations of these 60 crore people by fulfilling their basic needs and cooperatives have the potential to fulfil all these aspirations. Today after fulfilling their primary needs, these people have ambitions to move ahead in life by earning more money and through cooperatives they can fulfil these ambitions. Shri Amit Shah said if these 60 crore people have just Rs. 5,000, they can run the biggest of cooperatives. Giving the example of Amul, Shri Shah said today this cooperative has crossed a turnover of Rs.60,000crore and 20 lakh women members are not only running the cooperative, but have also been  making profits for many years.

The Union Cooperation Minister said the cooperative model is a model in which even with limited capital people can come together and undertake large tasks easily. He said earlier the cooperative model did not have much potential, but Shri Narendra Modi has awakened the aspirations of 60 crore people. He said if a system does not change itself with the times, then it becomes out dated, and therefore it is necessary to improve the cooperative system for the expansion of the sector. India’s cooperative system is 115 years old, the laws are also very old, though small changes have taken place from time to time, radical changes and modernization according to the times have not taken place.

Shri Shah said now the cooperative sector cannot be given second class treatment, however there is a need to bring about change and to move in the direction of bringing transparency and for cooperatives to prepare themselves for change. The GeM portal will be very useful in bringing in transparency in the cooperative sector and when there is transparency, the trust of farmers and milk producers will also increase on the committees and their members. He said that by bringing the GeM portal, Shri Narendra Modi has brought in transparency in government procurement. This is a new system, and therefore there may be some initial administrative problems, but no one should doubt the intention of bringing in this new system. Shri Shah said it is also very important to bring transparency in three areas within cooperatives – elections, recruitment and purchase. There can be no better medium than the GeM to bring transparency in procurement. The Union Minister of Cooperation said he is confident that the world will recognize this successful model of transparent government procurement in the next five5 years.

The Union Minister of Cooperation said he is very optimistic about the future of GeM’s journey under the leadership of Union Minister for Commerce and Industry, Shri Piyush Goyal. He said of the589 of the committees to be added have a turnover of about Rs.100croreare of the state government and till date 289 of them have joined, as well as 45 of the 54 multistate cooperatives have also joined, which is a huge achievement. Also more than 10,000 products and more than 288 services have been listed. Till now business worth Rs. 2.78 lakh thousand crore has also been completed which is a huge achievement of the GeM. Shri Shah said this day is important for the Nation as the Quit India movement began on August 9 and six years ago on August 9 the GeM was also launched and today onboarding of cooperatives has been initiated on this day. Shri Amit Shah congratulated those associated with cooperatives, the entire team of the GeM and eight lakh cooperative societies and especially Shri Piyush Goyal.
