CHANDRAYAAN-2 CALLED OFF DUE TO TECHNICAL SNAG

Monday, 15 July 2019 04:21 Written by

Odishabarta,Bureau 

Sriharikota,15/07/19:India’s ambitious moon landing mission Chandrayaan-2 launch was called off due to technical snag in the ‘Bahubali’ rocket on Monday about one hour before it was to blast-off. 

“It is not possible to make the launch within the launch window. The revised launch schedule will be announced later,” an official announced from the Mission Control Centre. 

Minutes before making this announcement, the officials put on hold the countdown for less than five minutes. 

“The technical snag was noticed. We first have to approach the vehicle to assess the problem. First we have to empty the fuel loaded in the rocket, then the rocket will be taken back for further investigation,” an ISRO official told IANS. 

“This process will take 10 days after that only we can decide on the launch schedule,” he added. 

The launch was called off nearly one hour before the actual time of launch which was 2.51 a.m. 

“A technical snag was observed in launch vehicle system at T-56 minute. As a measure of abundant precaution, #Chandrayaan2 launch has been called off for today. Revised launch date will be announced later,” ISRO tweeted later. 

Standing at about 44 metre tall, the 640-tonne rocket Geosynchronous Satellite Launch Vehicle-Mark III (GSLV-Mk III) is nicknamed ‘Bahubali’. And just like the hero in the hit film by the same name lifted a heavy ‘lingam’, the rocket will carry the 3.8 tonne Chandrayaan-2 spacecraft. 

The Rs 978 crore Chandrayaan-2 mission was prestigious one as it aimed to make India as the fourth nation in the world to land and ride on the moon. 

The other three nations that had achieved this feat are Russia, the US and China. 

The Chandrayaan-2 consists of three segments – the Orbiter (weighing 2,379 kg, eight payloads), the lander-Vikram (1,471 kg, four payloads) and rover Pragyan (27 kg, two payloads). 

The GSLV-Mk III with a capacity to carry four ton satellite, is a three stage/engine rocket with two strap-on motors powered by solid fuel. The second stage is a core liquid fuel booster and the third is the cryogenic engine. 

To date ISRO has sent up three GSLV-Mk III rockets. The first one was on 18.12.2014 carrying Crew Module Atmospheric Reentry Experiment (3.7 ton). The mission was also to test the rocket’s inflight structural stability. 

The second and third GSLV-Mk III’s went up on 5.6.2017 and 14.11.2018 carrying communication satellites GSAT-19 (3.1 ton) and GSAT-29 (3.4 ton) respectively. 

Interestingly, GSLV-Mk III will be used for India’s manned space mission slated in 2022. 

India presently has two fully operational rockets — the Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV) and GSLV-Mk II — with a lift-off mass of 415 ton and a carrying capacity of 2.5 tonnes.

ODISHA MP URGES IN HOUSE TO MERGE PM-KISAN SCHEME WITH KALIA

Saturday, 13 July 2019 04:47 Written by

Report;Bureau,Odishabarta 

Bhubaneswar,12/07/19: Making a volte face on its earlier stand, the ruling-BJD has requested the Centre to prepare a cohesive plan for Odisha by merging the State’s Krushak Assistance for Livelihood and Income Augmentation (KALIA) scheme with the PM KISAN programme.

BJD MPs Bhartruhari Mahatab and Prasanna Acharya during a debate on the Budget, suggested the BJP-led Central government that both Odisha’s KALIA scheme and the Centre’s PM-KISAN schemes should be amalgamated to lessen the financial burden on the Centre and pass on more financial benefits to farmers.

“I want to suggest the Centre that it should share 70 per cent of the KALIA scheme so that the State will bear 30 per cent fund required for the scheme. Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik had also suggested the same during the NITI Aayog meeting. Let’s make it a cohesive programme where both the Centre and state can work together for overall welfare of farmers,” BJD MP from Cuttack Bhartruhari Mahatab said.

Participating in the debate in the Upper House, party MP Prasanna Acharya said, “Why doesn’t the Centre coordinate with States like Andhra Pradesh and Odisha and let the schemes be merged, thereby both the Centre and States can share the monetary burden. This will lead to better social security for farmers.”

The BJD parliamentarians push for the merger of schemes has raised many eyebrows as PM-KISAN is a central scheme and doesn’t have any share from States.

Political pundits are of the opinion that while the Odisha government been reluctant in implementing the Centre’s Ayushman Bharat scheme, its demands for assistance over implementation of its own KALIA scheme has left many questions unanswered.

While the Congress has criticised the State government over the development, the BJP has said both the schemes should be implemented separately for more benefit of the farmers of Odisha.

“As the Centre is providing Rs 6,000 under its PM-KISAN scheme and the State is releasing Rs 10,000 under its KALIA scheme, the money together will decline the financial burden on the State government so CM Naveen Patnaik has intentionally asked his two party MPs to raise this issue in Parliament to get political mileage over the issue,” alleged Tara Prasad Bahinipati, Congress MLA.

In his reaction, BJP MLA Jayanarayan Mishra said there is no harm if the State government adopts both KALIA and PM-KISAN schemes. “Prior to launching the schemes, the State government should have worried about the funds. We want that Odisha farmers should get benefit of both the schemes,” Mishra added.

The State government had earlier released Rs 1,244 crore from contingency fund to distribute money among farmers under the KALIA scheme.

Friday, 12 July 2019 12:53 Written by

Report;Bureau,Odishabarta 

New Delhi,12/07/19:Expert-committee chaired by known economist LK Jha which was set up by Union Government to suggest new financial-year, had suggested systematic calendar-year of January-December to replace current system of April-March financial-year due to multiple advantageous, and also to be in tune with most other countries of the world. But as usual, recommendations of LK Jha committee set up at high cost were dumped by the then political rulers without being implemented. It is time that both financial and working year for the complete country may be unified as the systematic calendar year to replace present financial-year of April-March which is being in continuation as a British legacy even after seven long decades of the country having achieved independence.

CELEBRATING WORLD POPULATION DAY THROUGH NEWSPAPER-ADVERTISEMENTS

Thursday, 11 July 2019 04:46 Written by

Report;Bureau,Odishabarta 

New Delhi,11/07/19:Some government-departments from central and state governments have given newspaper-advertisements on 11th July desiring people to stabilize population. But this formality is of no use till strict enforcement may be done to curb population-explosion through legislation like is demanded through a PIL presently pending in Supreme Court, and demanded by 125 Parliamentarians of earlier Lok Sabha cutting across party-lines. Central government should support PIL in the Apex Court. 

All government-facilities including all types of subsidies like on LPG and ration, reservation-benefits, promotion and appointment in government-jobs, right to contest elections etc should be abolished on having a third child in the family. It should be mandatory for every hospital, private or government, to compulsorily sterilize the woman on birth of third child, where husband or wife have more than three children. It is also time to follow other Islamic countries where only one wife may be permissible for a man.

CRITICISM ON HIKING PRICES OF PETROL AND DIESEL IN UNION BUDGET FOR 2019-20

Sunday, 07 July 2019 07:17 Written by

Report;Bureau,Odishabarta 

New Delhi,07/07/19;Central government could fetch much-more revenue from some practical steps rather than by raising price of petrol and diesel by rupees two per litre in the Union Budget for 2019-20. Since distribution of petrol and diesel is done only by four public-sector oil-companies under control of Union Ministry of petroleum, new mechanism should be set up whereby prices once hiked may not be roll-back even in case of international price-fall of crude oil. Extra money so earned could be better utilised to bear loss in case of price-rise of crude-oil thus maintaining uniform pricing for quite some time rather than daily-change in prices of petrol and diesel. It is significant that price of commodities and transportation once raised because of rise of fuel-price, is never rolled back in case of fall in fuel-price. Discounts on petrol and diesel purchased by affluent class through credit-cards should be abolished. 

Since government is the biggest user of petroleum products, Union Government apart from cutting down its own expenditure should launch austerity drive by announcing stiff measures for a drastic cut in consumption of petrol and diesel including installation of GPS in all government-vehicles to check large-scale misuse of government-vehicles for private purpose. Only economical cars should be purchased at cost of public-exchequers except for use of President, Vice President, Prime Minister and foreign dignitaries. Car-loans should also be only for economical cars. Costlier cars should bear double GST (in form of cess), road-tax and other levies. LPG subsidy should be only on filing affidavits about combined family-incomes rather than government expecting voluntary surrendering subsidy from those with high family-income.
