Chinas new plan on maritime cooperation in disputed SCS

first_imgFrom K J M VarmaBeijing, Apr 28 (PTI) China is working on a new plan for international cooperation in the South China Sea and its neighbouring waters in a bid to shore up ties with a number of southeast Asian countries affected by the maritime dispute.The plan to cover the next five yearswill focus on partnerships between China and the ASEAN and in East Asia, Chen Yue, deputy directorr, international cooperation, in ChinasState Oceanic Administration (SOA) said today.Chen did not go into specifics or say when the plan will be unveiled, state-run Xinhua news agency reported.China is currently entangled in a simmering maritime dispute over the South China Sea with Vietnam, the Philippines, Malaysia, Brunei and Taiwan who counter its claim over almost the whole of the waterway.The US waded into the dispute backing the smaller countries to assert their rights against China.The Philippines petition challenging Chinas claims is being heard by a tribunal established under the UN Convention on Law of the Seas (UNCLOS) which is boycotted by Beijing.The two projects under the new plan are expected to be jointly established by the SOA and the government of southeast Chinas coastal Fujian Province as well as the SOA and the government of east Chinas Shandong Province, respectively.Under the previous five-year plan covering 2011 to 2015, China signed 19 intergovernmental and 17 inter-institutional documents on marine cooperation with 15 countries around the South China Sea, the Indian Ocean and the South Pacific, according to SOA figures.China also led, initiated and carried out more than 30 cooperation projects, and offered apparatus for four ocean observation stations for southeast Asian countries including Indonesia and Malaysia, the Xinhua report said.advertisementDuring the period, the Chinese government offered scholarships to 71 students from 27 developing countries and regions to study for masters or doctoral degrees in related majors in China, Chen said.

Nowhere in the world people sent to gas chambers to die says

first_imgNew Delhi: Expressing serious concern over people dying during manual scavenging and sewage cleaning in India, the Supreme Court Wednesday said nowhere in the world people are sent to “gas chambers to die”. Although over 70 years have passed since the Independence, caste discrimination still persists in the country, the apex court said while making scathing observations on the practice. A bench headed by Justice Arun Mishra questioned Attorney General K K Venugopal, appearing for the Centre, as to why proper protective gear like mask and oxygen cylinders were not being provided to people engaged in manual scavenging and cleaning of sewage or manholes. Also Read – India gets first tranche of Swiss bank a/c details “Why are you not providing them masks and oxygen cylinders? In no country in the world, people are sent to gas chambers to die. Four to five people are dying due to this every month,” said the bench also comprising justices M R Shah and B R Gavai. The Constitution has provided that all human beings are equal but they are not being given equal facilities by the authorities, it said. The bench termed as “inhuman” the situation where the people are not provided with any protective gear and they are dying during the process of cleaning of sewage and manholes across the country. Also Read – Tourists to be allowed in J&K from Thursday The apex court made these hard-hitting observations while it was hearing the Centre’s plea seeking review of its last year’s verdict which had virtually diluted the provisions of arrest under the SC/ST Act. Venugopal told the bench that no law of tort, which deals with civil wrong and its liabilities thereof, is developed in the country and the magistrates are not empowered to take cognisance on their own of such incidents. A case can’t be filed against the person who is sweeping the street or cleaning the manholes but the supervisory officers or the authorities, on whose instruction the work is carried out, should be held liable for this, he said. “This is most inhuman to treat the human beings like this,” the bench observed. The bench also made observations on the aspect of untouchability in the country. “Despite the constitution abolishing untouchability in the country, I am asking you people, do you shake hands with them? The answer is no. That is the way we are going on. The condition must improve. We have moved 70 years since Independence but these things are still happening,” Justice Mishra said.last_img read more

UKs Johnson caught lying to dad of sick child on hospital visit

first_imgLondon: British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has said he was not embarrassed after being filmed lying to the father of a sick child angrily confronting him during a hospital visit on Wednesday. Johnson was stopped by the dad, whose daughter was being treated at the London facility, to hear complaints about cuts to health funding and criticism that he was using the visit as a “press opportunity”. The British leader could then be heard telling the father that “there’s no press here” — despite media standing nearby filming the incident.

Phishing email in garb of IT dept lurking in Indian cyberspace Advisory

first_imgNew Delhi: An information stealing computer malware by masking as a message from the Income Tax Department has been found prowling in the Indian cyberspace, a federal cyber security agency has warned in a recent advisory. “A phishing and malware campaign is active since at least September 12 and is targeting individuals as well as financial organisations. The campaign involves fake emails purporting to be sent from Indian Income Tax Department,” the CERT-In said its latest advisory accessed by PTI. Also Read – Commercial vehicle sales to remain subdued in current fiscal: Icra Indian Computer Emergency Response Team (CERT-In) is the national agency to combat hacking, phishing incidents and to fortify security-related defences of the Indian Internet domain. While phishing denotes to a category of cyber crime where a person’s personal vital information like banking, credit card details and passwords are stolen, malware is an e-virus.

The advisory said at least two variants of the latest malware emails have been observed. First variant includes an attachment with extension .img which contains a malicious .pif file while the second variant lures the users to download a malicious “.pif file hosted on a sharepoint page via a link of fraudulent domain incometaxindia[.]info, it said. This domain, it said, has now been disabled. “The malware samples add persistence by modifying the Windows registry and have been observed to have information stealing capabilities,” it said.

The agency also suggested some counter-measures: Do not to open documents from untrusted sources and should disable running macros in MS Office by default; don’t open attachments in unsolicited e-mails, even if they come from people in your contact lists and never click on a URL contained in an unsolicited e-mail, even if the link seems benign, it said. In cases of genuine URLs, close the e-mail and go to the organisation’s website directly through browser, the Cert-In said.last_img read more

Govt to appoint global consultant to sell surplus land of PSUs

first_imgMumbai: The government wants to sell excess land holdings held by state-run enterprises and will soon be appointing international consultants to help on the same, a senior official said on Thursday. The process, to be carried out by the Niti Aayog with the help of the Finance Ministry’s Department of Investment and Public Asset Management (DIPAM), will be a big source of revenue in the next two years. The government is at present on the look-out to tap newer sources of revenue as it tries to address the country’s developmental needs. It has also had to sharply cut taxes to spur investments and push up growth which has slipped to a six year low.

Once identified, the land parcels will be segregated into three categories – clear title, one with non-clarity and also facing hurdles like litigations. He said there are a lot of issues with titles because both the States and Centre had Congress governments and the lines blurred, wherein land held by a state government was cited as one held by a state-run company.last_img read more

2 held for duping over 1000 people on pretext of linking Aadhaar

first_imgNew Delhi: More than 1,100 bank accounts were opened at fake addresses to adjust crores of rupees embezzled through online fraud, revealed the investigation in a case in which Delhi Police arrested two persons in online banking racket from Karol Bagh and Ajmer in Rajasthan. Over 1,000 persons were cheated by the fraudsters through sim card swapping.The investigating agency said that the accused persuade their victims to share confidential details on the pretext of linking their Aadhaar cards with their mobile numbers. Police identified the accused as Alimuddin Ansari (27), a native of Jharkhand and his associate Manoj Yadav (31) who lives in Azamgarh, UP. 81 debit cards, 104 cheque books and 130 passbooks of different bank accounts used in cheating were recovered. “Ansari was arrested from Ajmer whereas Yadav was nabbed from Karol Bagh area,” police said. Also Read – More good air days in Delhi due to Centre’s steps: JavadekarDeputy Commissioner of Police (Dwarka) Anto Alphonse said Ansari was the mastermind of this syndicate. He allegedly operated his illegal business through multiple unorganized call centres from Jharkhand. The team of Dwarka district cyber cell led by sub-inspector Arvind Kumar and Dwarka North police station team investigated the case. “Yadav’s job was to provide Bank accounts to adjust the cheated amount via online fraud. Yadav targets the poor and the labour class people. He offered Rs 2,000 per account to these people if they provide him Bank account on their IDs,” said Dwarka DCP. More than 1100 bank accounts were opened. Also Read – Union min Hardeep Singh Puri, Delhi L-G lay foundation stones for various projects in DwarkaInvestigator said that Ansari and his associates call up people posing as customer care executives of the telecom service provider or bank employee, and on the pretext of linking their Aadhar numbers with their mobile numbers or bank accounts, ask for card details of the Bank accounts linked with that number. After getting all the details, they sent a message to them and asked them to forward the message to the customer care number. Once the target is convinced to send the SMS, that carried the 20 digit number of the new SIM card (which is already in possession of the fraudsters), the original SIM card with the victims are deactivated forever. As a result, the group gets access to all the bank account details and other potential areas where a mobile number is used to receive the OTP or other security passwords. Within minutes, the accused do account transactions through mobile banking without victim’s knowledge.last_img read more

Kolkata The economic slowdown has dimmed the ligh

first_imgKolkata: The economic slowdown has dimmed the lights of Bengal’s biggest festival this time, forcing Durga puja organizers to scale down celebrations due to shrinking sponsorship. Not just small-budget pujas, big-ticket ones have also curtailed their budget by nearly 15% to 30%, mostly compromising on marquee decoration, according to organisers. On an average, setting up a theme-based marquee for the five-day fiesta, replete with safety arrangements and basic amenities, costs anything between Rs 12 lakh and Rs 30 crore in Bengal. Also Read – Bengal family worships Muslim girl as Goddess Durga in Kumari Puja “Owing to economic slowdown, we failed to achieve our target of Rs 65 lakh. We are running short of Rs 20 lakh. Most sponsors, this time, either declined to make a contribution or paid less than what they do,” Sudipto Kumar, an official of Deshapriya Park community Puja in south Kolkata, said. Corporate firms are not willing to spend on advertisements, he claimed. “Every year, huge advertisement hoardings and posters greet revelers outside the puja pandals, but this time, the numbers have shrunk considerably,” he added. Also Read – Bengal civic volunteer dies in road mishap on national highway Echoing similar sentiments, Ekdalia Evergreen Club said several sponsors have gone back on their promise, citing the ailing economy. “Some sponsors, who had signed a contract with us, have also backed out. In 2008-2009 (during global recession), we had faced a similar situation,” club secretary Gautam Mukherjee said. Organizers have made several modifications this year, mostly cutting down on promotional activities. Kajal Sarkar, the president of Forum for Durgotsab, said sponsorship has fallen by 30-50 per cent. “Donations, subscriptions and retail advertisements cover about 30 per cent of the expenses, the rest is usually taken care of by corporate funding,” Sarkar said. The situation has gone worse for small-budget Durga pujas committees, with some of the organizers opting for a marquee without any distinct theme. “We had decided to adorn our pandal with glass structures, but lack of funds forced us to find an alternative in plaster of paris,” said Ashok Deb, an official of a Durga Puja committee in North 24 Parganas district. According to advertising agencies, weak consumer sentiment is also one of the reasons for lack of sponsorship. “Most advertisers in India try to leverage the festive season. In the current year, advertising spends across multiple sectors have taken a hit due to weak consumer sentiment. “Nevertheless, the government is taking active measures to tackle the scenario by providing relief in corporate tax rates,” Anand Bhadkamkar, the CEO of Dentsu Aegis Network India, stated. The Trinamool Congress (TMC) leadership, however, blamed its arch rival Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) for the economic slowdown in the country. It also slammed the BJP-led government at the Centre for allegedly issuing income tax notices to several Durga Puja committees here, contending that festivals should be exempt from levies. The Central Board of Direct Taxes had, however, denied sending any notice to the organizers, ahead of the puja. “Durga puja is usually organised with the help of subscriptions and sponsorships. But harassment by the I-T department and the economic slowdown have hit the celebration hard this year,” a senior TMC leader maintained. Denying the TMC allegation, a BJP leader said the crackdown on chit fund firms have left the state high and dry. “The TMC allegations are baseless and bereft of truth. Funds for Durga puja have dried up due to crackdown on chit funds companies,” he added.last_img read more
