E Mail from PM : Give your feedback on 500/1000 rupee Demonetisation

Narendra Modi
28th Nov. at 8.26 pm

Dear Ji ,
A few days ago I had appealed to the people of India to tell me what they feel about the Government’s decision on 500 and 1000 Rupee notes ceasing to be legal tender. I was delighted to note that since my asking, over 10 lakh people from the length and breadth of India have shared their feedback on the ‘Narendra Modi App’.
I request you to please take part in the survey and enrich it with your valuable views.
The decision that Government took on 8th November is inspired by the collective will to take India to new heights of progress. It is high time we uproot the evils of corruption and black money, which were hampering the growth of India. 
I am fully aware that the people of India are facing temporary hardships. However, these temporary hardships will pave way for a glorious future and build an India that is strong, prosperous and inclusive.
The ability of the people of India to withstand and overcome short-term pain for long term gain has humbled me and given me more energy to work for the development of India.
I again request you to take part in the survey and share your honest and unbiased opinion. This will be extremely helpful for me personally and for the Government. Click on the following link to download the App and take part in the survey-
Jai Hind,
Narendra Modi

Economy may slow down - atleast for some time

Note Ban to slow down economy, warn experts. Unorganised sector which provides 80% jobs, to be hit the hardest, consumption expenditure set to shrink. Those who got a hike in the salary under the seventh pay commission may be happy but the truth is Many factories are in the process of shut down after this notebandi. No more job possibilities there in such units resulting into mass retrenchment. What next ?

सोच कर जवाब दीजिए !

ये कैसी राजनीति चल रही है. हर कोई अपनी पार्टी लाइन पे चल कर अपने नंबर बनाने मे लगा हुआ है. देश हित से किसी को कोई भी मतलब नही. अगर आपकी पार्टी ने कह दिया कि समर्थन करना है तो सभी समर्थन के नारे लगाने लगते हैं और अगर आपकी पार्टी ने कह दिया कि विरोध करना है तो सभी विरोध करने लगते हैं. यानी कि इस देश का भविषय हम देश के नागरिक तय नही करेंगे बल्कि वो राजनीतिक दल करेंगे जो पल पल मे, अपनी राजनीतिक जोड़ तोड़ मे, अपना दामन बदलते रहते हैं क्या कभी हम लोगों को अकल आएगी, या फिर भेड बकरियों की तरह, कोई ना कोई, हमेशा, हमे हांकता रहेगा ? सोच कर जवाब दीजिए.

RWAs are ready to help Banks but no answer from Banks so far !

RWAs of #Delhi are ready to help #Banks : Times of India

RWAs offer help to ease long queues : Mail Today

And now, it is the turn of residents’ welfare associations that have come forward and proposed a helping hand to the banks to assist crowds and bank employees to make the cash swap process a little easier. 

The RWAs have reached out to the nationalised banks to assist the crowd and make it convenient for both the stakeholders to carry out the process of exchanging and depositing cash easier by helping customers fulfill all the necessary steps before reaching the window so that queues can move faster. 

“Although people are currently facing problem during the phase of demonetisation, soon the benefit can be reaped. In the fight against the black money, it is important for the residents to cooperate with the banks,” said BS Vohra from East Delhi RWAs Joint Front Federation. 

“We have reached out to the banks on social media, and expressed our desire to help the banks. The banks can include us after conducting a verification process. We can help the visitors in filling the forms, clearing their doubts, ensuring the completion of the required documents so that bank employees can cater to more and more customers faster,” he said. 

Vohra also said that the invitations have been sent to several other RWAs across the city to participate in the movement against black money. 

Kunal Maheshwari, a resident in South Delhi who experienced the hospitality of some kind individuals while waiting outside the ATM, said: “The community participation plays an important role in making such movement powerful and effective. The government should also rope in RWAs in such projects so that the access to facility becomes a convenient experience.”

Demonetization : India in Queue

A good and bold step by PM of India, but Public is sad and angry on account of mismanagement on the part of the Bankers. Long queues for a meagre 4000 rupees and that too at the mercy of banks. Though the public generally supported the move by the Government with a hope for the better, but seems the banks are unable to cope up with the huge rush of the cash starved residents.

मोदी सरकार का फ़ैसला तो अछा है लेकिन...........

पूर्वी दिल्ली के कृष्णा नगर मे, 500 व 1000 रुपये के नोटों को बंद करने की वजह से लोगों मे दोनो तरह की प्रतिक्रिया देखी गई. लोग खुश भी थे कि देश से काला धन हटाने के लिए मोदी जी ने बड़ा अछा कदम उठाया है.

और लोग परेशान भी थे की उनको टाइम नही मिला जिस वजह से उनके पास 100 रुपये के नोट नही हैं जिस करके रोज मररा की ज़रूरतों को पूरा करने मे, दूध, सब्जी इत्यादि लेने मे भारी दिक्कत आ रही है क्योंकि दुकानदार 500 या फिर 1000 के नोट नही ले रहे हैं.

यहाँ तक की डॉक्टर्स भी 100 रुपये के नोट या चेक़ माँग रहे हैं, और जिनके पास 100 रुपय के नोट या चेक नही हैं, उनको अपने इलाज या ज़रूरी टेस्ट भी कल या परसों के लिए टालने पड़ रहे हैं.

लोगों की परेशानी की वजह ये भी है की सरकार ने सिर्फ़ 4000 रुपये रोज बदलने की बात करी है जबकि किसी के घर मे शादी है या फिर कोई ओर प्रोग्राम या फंकशन है और सभी लोग अब छोटे नोट ही माँगेगे. 

लोगों का सॉफ सॉफ कहना था की मोदी सरकार का फ़ैसला तो अछा है लेकिन अगर कुछ समय मिल जाता तो जो मुश्किलें या तकलीफें हो रही हैं, वो ना होतीं. हालाँकि लोगों का यह भी कहना था की शॉर्ट टर्म मे या फिर कुछ दिनों के लिए मुश्किल हो सकती है, लेकिन लोंग टर्म मे फायदा होने वाला है, काला धन ख़तम होने वाला है.

Suggestions to check Air pollution

Dear Sir,

Few suggestions to check pollution. As per report published in HT

1.Pollution from Crackers 11%
2.Stubble and waste burning 26%
3.Road dust 38%
4.Vehicular emission 20%
5.Thermal power plants 5%


1.Instead of Total Ban on crackers due to religious practices ,tribunal should allow crackers with permissible limits of sound and air pollution. No to Cracker campaigns have lost its appeal and a law needs to be framed to check indiscriminate usage of crackers. Community Deepawali be celebrated, ban sale of crackers to individuals.

2. Agriculture waste should be used for making organic compost, Government `should issue guidelines in this direction by declaring it as a source of carbon for organic composting after consultations with agriculture ministry. Farmers will not burn resource.

a)Constructions be stopped during peak pollution months and sprinklers be made mandatory on construction sites.
b) Sweeping of roads by brooms be stopped instead dust suction machines be used. As immediate measures sweeping be allowed twice a week. impose heavy fines on littering of garbage.
c) installation of sprinklers be made mandatory on high rise buildings, these to be made operational during fixed hours especially  during peak hours of pollution.
d) Guidelines and penalties to Polluting industries / factories.
e)Since lower speed of vehicles leads to more pollution ,odd even scheme should be implemented again.
f) improve last mile connectivity to metro stations, shared autos be encouraged

g) Goods trains to run on metro lines after midnight to check pollution by trucks entering the city.

4. Emissions from power plants be checked by installing filters or water sprinklers as wind carries dust particles from as far as 300km so even power stations based outside the city continue to pollute environment.

5. Total ban on dumping of wet green waste on landfill sites as this waste when burns with plastic waste produces green house toxic  gases. All landfill sites continuously generate smoke due to slow burning of wet waste. Sites for neighbourhood composting should be earmarked to reduce waste generation.Awareness campaigns on importance of waste segregation and composting at source be launched. Trainings be conducted in this regard.

7 Total ban on manufacturing and sale of polybags as they emit toxic fumes at landfill sites.

6. Horticulture department should plant more trees which have smaller leaves to trap dust particles eg  Amla,tamrind ,Shishir ,Neem and gulmohar.

Best regards

How to pick the right helmet: That roadside, low-cost one won’t save your head : Hindustan Times

Cheap, poor-quality helmets are not hard to come by in the Capital. In fact, you can find these for as low as Rs 25 at the nearby general stores. It may save you some money but may end up costing your life.
These fragile helmets — which look like caps made of thin plastic and sponge with attached elastic straps — do not provide the required protection in case of an accident. With no minimum quality standards, helmets have been reduced to an accessory needed only to escape the traffic cops.
 “Almost three years ago I lost a close friend in a bike accident as his helmet was of poor quality, and again just seven days ago lost another friend in a bike accident as he was not wearing a helmet. To save some money we are ready to risk our lives,” said BS Vohra, president of the East Delhi Residents Welfare Association, who has been working for citizen safety for over a decade now. 

Road safety activists and residents like Vohra have been stressing on the need for quality of helmets.
“I don’t blame the shopkeepers who sell low quality helmets. They sell what people buy. The government agencies which ignore the safety of commuters are to be held responsible. A person who can afford a two-wheeler costing around Rs50,000 can surely afford a safety gear worth Rs 2,500 but no one bothers as it is not mandatory,” said Mohammad Imran, founder of the NGO Safe Road Foundation which has been working to create awareness among people about safe road practices.
 Imran also said that let alone an accident these cheap versions do not even survive the force of a fall. “Drop these helmets from a height of 4 feet and they will crack at the centre. How will these protect your skull from the impact of an accident?” he asks.
Making pillion riders — particularly women — wear helmets is another challenge for cops. “The skull of a woman is no different from that of a man and is likely to experience equal or more damage if not equipped with proper safety. Traffic constables hear all kinds of excuses ranging from beauty to religious reasons for not wearing helmets. The law should be equally implemented for both genders,” said joint commissioner of police (traffic), Garima Bhatnagar.
