WATER IS MAJOR ISSUE 

BERHAMPUR,24/06/19: Even after three years of its functioning, the Indian Institute of Science Education and Research (IISER) is running from a transit campus here amid inadequate facilities. 

the Central Government had set up the seventh IISER of the country in Berhampur in 2016.The premier institute has been functioning from a Government ITI here since 2016. 

Though the state government had allotted 200-acre land at Laudigaon village under Kanishi tehsil,under construction work failed to take off due to non-availability of water at the proposed site. 

Notably the proposed institute comes under the constituency of MLA Gopalpur.  

As groundwater level depleted drastically at the site, arranging water for construction work will be highly expensive. 

Even the proposed site is nearer to the sea and the authorities concerned have not obtained the necessary clearance from Coastal Regulation Zone (CRZ).  

According to the information the institute requires around 25,000 litres of water daily for drinking as well as research purpose.In order to the issues, a meeting was convened where IISER authorities apprised Ganjam Collector Vijay Amrita Kulange of the problems at Chhatrapur recently. 

It was revealed that last year, IISER had sought two more floors from the ITI, which, however, refused.Later, the ITI authorities agreed, but demanded Rs 95 lakh from IISER to shift the equipment from these two floors. 

However, the issue remained unresolved as the IISER authorities agreed to pay only Rs 65 lakh as per estimation of the CPWD.  

The Collector directed the Executive Engineer of PHEO to initiate necessary measures to provide adequate water to both transit and permanent campuses. 

The IISER authorities also proposed to construct three approach roads from the NH  to its new campus immediately. The Collector said work on the approach roads will begin after sanction of funds.  

He also assured that he will urge the state government to sanction Rs11 crore for supplying power to IISER from Narendrapur GRID, also directed the ADM to monitor progress.

Rupees 200-crores marriage-party leaves 220 quintal waste: Impose marriage-tax and other measures to regulate and discourage mega-budgeted marriages 

New Delhi,24/06/19:Media-reports indicate that high-profile weddings of brothers Suryakant and Shashank of South Africa based Gupta family with estimated spending of rupees 200 crores in Auli of Uttarakhand, left 220 quintals waste requiring 7-8 trucks daily for ten days to clear.

India should follow Afghanistan to curb mega-budgeted marriage-celebrations. Large-scale wastage of food-items in marriage-celebrations should be prevented by re-introducing Guest Control Order 1960 with only soft drinks and beverages allowed in such functions. Principle adopted by then Delhi Chief Minister Shiela Dixit to boycott mega-budgeted functions should be an ideal for politicians cutting across party-lines. Marriage-tax should be imposed on marriage-celebrations exceeding say rupees five lakhs by one side as was suggested in a private-member bill introduced in Lok Sabha in February 2017. 

Supreme Court directive on 12.07.2018 asking central government to consider making it compulsory for families to disclose wedding expenditure by both sides of the families of bride and groom jointly to the marriage officer concerned should be implemented. It will not only limit wasteful expenditure at times due to social bindings on marriages but also effectively check unaccounted money being spent on marriage-related functions apart from lodging false claims made by bride-side in case of marital-disputes and divorces. 

It has become a trend to spend heavily on fancy boxes of wedding-invitation cards worth several thousands of rupees each which are practically of no use. Costly platters (with imported items where Indian substitutes are better and cheaper) and cash-envelopes from parents of brides should be banned through a legislative action in interest of society where this menace is causing problems especially in middle-class families. Introducing such measures will make people take birth of girl-child in family as boon rather than bane.
