The tape is cut on the new Finn Valley extension today.The official opening of the new extension to the Finn Valley Centre took place today following the recent completion of a €300K Construction Works Contract. Funding of €150,000 was provided by Donegal Local Development Company (DLDC) through the LEADER Programme with a similar amount of match funding being committed by the local committee of the Finn Valley AC Ltd.The Leader Programme is one of the core funding programmes administered by DLDC and has played a major role in revitalising rural communities in the Finn Valley area as well as numerous projects across Donegal. This new facility sees a major expansion to the existing Finn Valley facilities and will help address the recent increase in demand for several activities.Speaking at the opening Patsy McGonagle of Finn Valley said he is delighted to mark this occasion in partnership with DLDC. The added facility is already key to supporting the various services that Finn Valley are pleased to roll out to the community.Already it has supported the delivery of same and has in addition enabled the club to offer both full and part time employment. The club continues to remain active indeed proactive in considering new programmes that will benefit the social, education and health/wellbeing of the community. Our motto is “Active in the community since 1971” and this most welcome support and encouragement from the D L D C enables this. We are most appreciative of D L D C contribution.Also speaking at the event, Chairman of DLDC said it was a tremendous pleasure for him to represent DLDC and join with the Finn Valley Committee in the official opening of the new additional facility in Stranorlar. “The Finn Valley Centre is a testament to the success of the local committee and the LEADER Rural Development Programme both here in the county as well as throughout the nation. The aim of the LEADER Programme throughout Europe is to encourage local actors like the Finn Valley Committee to develop innovative enterprise and community facilities throughout Donegal. It is our view that this project is an excellent example of an initiative which meets the challenges and aims of LEADER.“While we acknowledge the importance of the LEADER grant, we must also acknowledge the commitment and input from the local committee who provided match funding of €150,000 to ensure the project was delivered to the outstanding specification which we witness here today”.Through various Leader Programmes Donegal Local Development Company has so far provided in excess of €23M to some 725 projects in Donegal. Along with match funding by project promoters an up to date total of over €55M has been invested in rural development projects by DLDC and local promoters which has contributed in a strategic way to building the Donegal economy.

In an attempt to curb stubble burning by farmers, the Punjab government is considering a proposal to amend the Panchayati Raj Act and bar such farmers from contesting panchayat elections.“We are seriously considering a proposal to make farmers ineligible for contesting panchayat elections if found guilty of burning stubble,” said Rural Development and Panchayat Minister Tript Rajinder Singh Bajwa on Thursday.Mr. Bajwa said the practice of stubble burning is not only polluting the environment but also the soil which is losing its fertility day by day.“The government has launched a vigorous campaign to make farmers aware of the ill effects of stubble burning and some legal actions are also being taken to stop this practice. We are providing subsidies on the agricultural implements used for mulching paddy straw into the soil. This has led to 40% decrease in stubble burning by the farmers,” said Mr. Bajwa.‘Hard decisions’The Minister said the government did not want to make strict laws or take strict actions, but to save the future generations “such hard decisions were the need of the hour”.
The Bombay High Court recently granted ad interim relief from prosecution to JP Morgan Services India Private Limited for not sharing the Aadhaar and bank details of their employees with the Employees’ Provident Fund Organisation (EPFO).The company had moved a Division Bench of Justices Ranjit More and N.M. Jamadar, seeking to quash a criminal complaint filed against it by the EPFO with the Esplanade metropolitan magistrate for failing to furnish the details.‘Avoid prosecution’Senior counsel Amit Desai, appearing for JP Morgan, told the court that providing such details was in contravention of Articles 14 (Equality before law) and 21 (Right to Life) of the Constitution. He produced a letter sent by the Association of Corporate Counsel (Legal) to all regional provident fund commissioners regarding the Supreme Court judgement on Aadhaar, which said, “It is advised to avoid any coercive action by way of prosecution till further orders.”Mr. Desai told the court that despite the letter, subsequent prosecutions were initiated against the company for not submitting the Aadhaar and bank details of its employees. He said employees had refused to supply the documents based on the apex court’s ruling.The EPFO, however, contended that supplying Aadhaar and bank details of the employees was mandatory and part of the online process.The court granted ad interim relief by staying the proceedings initiated by the magistrate till the matter is heard and disposed of. The Bench directed the EPFO to file an affidavit and posted the matter to be heard on October 14.

A TV antenna in Mizoram and (inset) W.A. Sangma: Broken promisesThe World Cup football frenzy last month had more than a billion people glued to their television sets.

Sangma: Broken promisesThe World Cup football frenzy last month had more than a billion people glued to their television sets. Some of them were in the northeastern state of Meghalaya, where the chief minister and a few of his cabinet members clustered round a set in the Government Circuit House in monsoon-drenched Cherrapunji to watch the proceedings in faraway Spain, courtesy Bangladesh television. And thereby hangs a tale.Doordarshan has not reached out to the north-east despite all the promises, hence proving once again that the noblest of government schemes for that region have a habit of running into the most elementary problems.While the Information and Broadcasting (I&B) Ministry engineers cool their heels and the deadlines draw closer, they have not been allotted the land at Gauhati for building the television studio and transmission facilities that were supposed to bring the north-east on the country’s TV map.The chances of completing this scheme within the Sixth Plan period are remote. However, for some time hopes were raised by a promise of giving the region at least an INSAT-linked network for the time being. But, as is wont, the scheme has remained only on paper, with little indication of implementation.Even if these are taken up, there is little chance of the north-easterners watching the Asiad on Doordarshan. Said Meghalaya’s Congress(I) Chief Minister W.A. Sangma, at a recent high-level conference in Delhi: “We want the television before the Asiad. Our people do not want to see the Games on the Bangladesh TV.”advertisementSanction: The INSAT link plan has also suffered due to the official apathy in Delhi. The North-Eastern Council (NEC) sanctioned Rs 25 crore for the scheme, for setting up studios at the seven state and Union territory capitals in the north-east and 13 transmitters: three in Assam, four in Arunachal Pradesh, two in Meghalaya and one each in Nagaland, Manipur, Mizoram and Tripura.Meanwhile the I&B Ministry presented a working paper proposing to channelise programmes produced at these studios through a grid at Shillong, besides relaying national network programmes for an hour a day. Although the Planning Commission has given a go-ahead on the plan, there seems to be no sign of action. Sources in the I&B Ministry and the NEC seem certain that the Asiad viewing is out of the reckoning.In spite of this, in border towns like Agartala, Aizawl, Tura (Garo Hills) and even to an extent Shillong, TV showrooms are reporting brisk business. Skylines in Agartala, Aizawl and Tura are already dotted with TV antennae and comprehensive sales and maintenance establishments have come up with no prospect of Doordarshan reaching the region for yearsEncouraging Experience: The Bangladesh viewers have had encouraging experience during the World Cup football on TV – for them it was one way of living through the curfew and violence. It nearly threw the Government out of gear in Meghalaya, where, apart from privately owned TV sets in border villages a set has been installed in the Government Circuit House at Cherrapunji.For days together a majority of Cabinet ministers including the chief minister drove in a procession, braving the typical Cherrapunji monsoon and holding cabinet sittings of a sporting kind. They were joined on the day of the finals by almost 1,000 – leading very nearly to a fracas of the kind common on Indian playing fields.A young entrepreneur who had installed a receiver at Mawphland, about 20 km from Shillong, preferred to dismantle it and bring it back before the finals began rather than accommodate a crowd of drunken supporters of the Assembly speaker. The latter was a special invitee but since Mawphland is his constituency he could not say no to his soccer-crazy supporters.It was good fun till it lasted and now people are making sure they do not have to be in the queues during the Asiad. But this will help only in the border belt. Most of the Assamese cannot catch Bangladesh TV. Experts say the best course is to arrange for community viewing on the site (satellite instructional television experiment) pattern, using mesh-type antennae (each costing Rs 8,000) receiving signals from INSAT-IA.
