What is the reason of fued between BJP and Shivsena

Maharashtra /28-October-2017 (News release India): The tension between Maharashtra allied ruling party BJP and Shivsena In the last three years has gone bad to worse as now both the parties have started individual campaign for 2019 assembly election.

Though both the parties have given ultimatum to each other in the past but the “Power” is what had made them to stick with each other. When BJP is trying to show that everything is alright between both the parties then there is Shivsena who openly challenges and criticize the BJP.

The top leadership has also decided that during electoral politics, there will be no alliance between the two parties and that the Sena and BJP are sticking together just to maintain stability of the government in Maharashtra.

In the earlier years after forming government in the state, the BJP-had to face many challenges from the Sena and Swabhimani Shetkari Sanghatana (SSS). The common refrain from president Uddhav Thackeray and SSS president Raju Shetti was BJP’s highhandedness in dealing with partners. The discomfort repeatedly expressed was BJP’s politics proving detrimental to the electoral growth of the partners and their power share in the government.

Uddhav Thackeray said that these things would take less than a minute to break up from the government. What has kept both the parties together is the public mandate who elected both the parties to run the state.

Shivsena has always taken a stand against BJP on various issues such as demonetisation and questioning over various issues.

SSS president Raju Shetti that the problem with the BJP is that  BJP does not give its alliance partners proper participatory role in important policy making. Nor are the recommendations made by our party on critical issues of farmers ever addressed.

However, sidelining the differences, leaders of other allied parties supporting the NDA share a good relationship with Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis, which has helped the BJP diffuse tensions several times.

Khot who also cited several instances when Fadnavis had consulted their party and leaders on every policy decision has said that the problems within the SSS were not because of BJP but an outcome of internal politics because of them.

For now, Congress’s student wing, the NSUI has alleged that a student of Narmada girls college in Hoshangabad has levelled allegations of being threatened by ABVP not to contest the elections.

4 national parks earned MP locals 75 crore in 2016-17

4 national parks earned MP locals 75 crore in 2016-17

A new wildlife report claims that tourism-related opportunities in and around four tiger reserves in Madhya Pradesh contributed nearly Rs75 crore to the local community while generating Rs19 crore in revenue for the government during the financial year 2016-2017.

Titled ‘The Value of Wildlife Tourism for Conservation and Communities’, the report by eminent tiger expert Raghunandan S Chundawat was launched here on Thursday.

Based on surveys conducted around Panna, Bandhavgarh, Kanha and Pench tiger reserves in Madhya Pradesh, the report noted that the local communities were among the major beneficiaries of the money generated by guided-tours, drivers, vehicle owners, local shops, eateries etc.

“With direct employment and non-salaried employment, including guides and safari vehicle owners, the major beneficiaries of wildlife tourism are the local communities. In fact, over 80% of lodge employees are locals,” Chundawat said.

Only 31% occupancy seen in 133 lodges per year
 Exclusionary models of conservation are no longer feasible over a large landscape. Our findings show that wildlife tourism can provide one way of doing this. With support and improved sustainable practices, tourism could provide a paradigm to spread benefit to tigers and people over a much broader area than seen before.”

Raghunandan S Chundawat, Tiger expert Based on a survey done in 133 lodges in the area, the report found that the facilities see only 31 per cent occupancy per annum on an average.

Despite this, the tourism sector was able to plough back into the local economy nearly Rs 75 crore, which was almost 45% of the communities’ total revenue, he added.

Chundawat pointed out that although successful, most tiger reserves in India are small and the tiger population protected within their boundaries are’nt viable.

He suggested that there was a need to look at new, parallel and complementary models to build on the success of these protected areas and ‘take tiger conservation beyond their boundaries’.

The report, commissioned by conservation charity ‘TOFTigers’, also suggested that since the employment generated by wildlife tourism is higher, ‘the dependency of these communities on the forest is reduced and their attitude towards wildlife conservation is much better now’.

‘Growth questionable’
According to wildlife activist Ajay Dubey, tourism industry due to tiger reserves in Madhya Pradesh has witnessed growth but the claim of this report that communities have also grown is questionable. He said migration of several communities due to drought have been reported from various tiger reserves in the state. In such circumstances, the report’s claim that the local communities have seen growth was unacceptable. He further said such reports were meant for image building of the tourism industry and has nothing to do with the reality on ground.

CM shivraj singh invites US firms to invest in MP

CM shivraj singh invites US firms to invest in MP

Bhopal/27-October-2017 (News release India):  Even as chief minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan is on a six-day tour of the US to convince companies there to invest in Madhya Pradesh, thousands of micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs) in the state are facing a severe crisis.

As per the government’s records, more than 22,000 such industries are sick in the state, with many of them on the verge of closure. The winding up of these sick units would render lakhs of workers jobless in Madhya Pradesh, said sources.

Unable to pay loans
These loss-making industries have not been able to pay back the loans worth Rs1,416 crore that they have taken from various banks. The loans to these units have almost become non-performing assets.

This is among the many issues that have been raised by industries association in a meeting of Small Industries Board.

MSME department has prepared an agenda pertaining to these issues and has sent the same to the state chief secretary (CS). DB Post has a copy of the said agenda.

CS to convene a meeting
Considering the gravity of the issue, BP Singh (CS) would soon convene a meeting with the officers of the departments concerned to deliberate upon the current state of these units.

The government is worried that if the industries begin to close, not only would people lose their jobs but it could also have a negative impact on the forthcoming Assembly elections, said sources.

It would also give ammunition to the Opposition, especially Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi, to attack the government over job losses and lack of job growth in the country.

•Such issues will not lure investors to invest in the state, irrespective of the number of road shows held in the US, and global summits organised by MP governmenr, said sources

After the issues are discussed with Chouhan, the following measures could be expected:
1 MSME rehabilitation board may be formed to assist the sick enterprises on the lines of board for industrial and financial reconstruction instituted by the Centre to rehabilitate loss-making mega industries. The industries association had already demanded that the MP government form such a board
2 Complying with the demands of the association, the board may have representation from the association, said sources
3 The government may rejig the control of the bureaucracy over the MSMEs as it is not confirming with ease of doing business formula propagated by the Prime Minister, said sources

Even as chief minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan is on a six-day tour of the US to convince companies there to invest in Madhya Pradesh, thousands of micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs) in the state are facing a severe crisis.

As per the government’s records, more than 22,000 such industries are sick in the state, with many of them on the verge of closure. The winding up of these sick units would render lakhs of workers jobless in Madhya Pradesh, said sources.

It would also give ammunition to the Opposition, especially Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi, to attack the government over job losses and lack of job growth in the country.

Bank loans worth 1,416 crore taken by MSMEs close to becoming NPAs

Policy impacting business
30% subsidy on power usage was available to the MSMEs as electricity connection up to 25 horse power (HP) was kept in the ‘Low Tension’ (LT) category 40% (approx) increase in the power expenses is being witnessed by the industries because of the change in LT category and increase in other charges

•The energy department had fixed 20 HP limit for LT category without even giving a proposal to the MP Electricity Regulatory Commission, due to which extra burden came over the MSMEs, as they had taken connections for 25 HP
•Fixed charges payable in MP by the industries per horse power is 40% higher than Maharashtra, while minimum charges are 35% higher

The compliance level of GST hits the lowest in the month of September

The compliance level of GST hits the lowest in the month of September

New Delhi /22-October-2017 (News release India): Even after three months of the implementation of the goods and services tax (GST), the level of compliance continues to be low in filing returns moreover it is less than half of tax return filed summary returns under the GST for September, for which the deadline was October 20.

The Government officials have claimed the latest data of tax return was similar to that in the previous two months. But this time signs of worry can be seen and tax experts are saying to the authorities to figure out why such large number of assessees are not filing returns.

According to the sources till friday only 3.94 million of the total 8 million assessees filed their GSTR 3B returns.

Abhishek Rastogi executive of Khaitan & Co said that the submission level is still about 50 per cent against targeted. Is that because of current going festival season if not then the better mechanism would be to analyse the reasons for the non-filers. Now time has come when the government should send a reminder to such taxpayers to pay their return.

Another expert aditya Singhania of Taxmann said that lack of awareness and confusion among the people at ground zero level, could be the reasons for poor filing of returns for September.

Singhania also  said that many may have not filed the returns due to the GST Council’s decision to allow those having a turnover of up to Rs 1.5 crore of annual turnover will have to file quarterly returns. The very fact that the decision would be effective when notification is issued is not known to many assessees.

Two days ago GSTN chairman Ajay Bhushan Pandey  said that during the first two months of GST implementation, many businesses filed their due returns after the end of due date and that the number for September return would go up eventually.

Pandey also said that if GSTN look at the network, then it is using only 30 per cent of the capacity. So there are a lot of headroom available for the server to file more number of returns.
