Students across India laud PM Modi for decision to exempt PG accommodation from GST

Students across India laud PM Modi for decision to exempt PG accommodation from GST Students from across the nation expressed their gratitude to Prime Minister Narendra Modi for the Union Cabinet's decision to remove Goods and Services Tax (GST) on paying guest (PG) and hostel accommodation. The GST Council earlier on June 22 exempted services of hostel accommodation outside educational institutions from GST. Accommodation services valued up to Rs 20,000 per person per month, provided for a continuous period of at least 90 days, will be exempt. Several students appreciated the decision and said that this will make higher education significantly more affordable and accessible for many across the country. Calling it a relief, Chitra, an MSc Horticulture student from Haryana pursuing her degree from Lovely Professional University, said, The GST on PG rentals was a significant added expense, and now we can redirect those funds towards our education and living costs. I am grateful to PM Modi for prioritizing the needs of students. Another student pursuing his engineering degree at LPU and hailing from Himachal Pradesh, Anshul Rana referred to the move as a estament to the government's commitment to academic growth. The elimination of GST on PG accommodations is a gamechanger. It will make higher education more accessible, especially for students from middle-class and underprivileged backgrounds. This is a true testament to the government's commitment to our academic and personal growth, Anshul Rana told ANI on Sunday. A Maharashtra Public Service Commission (MPSC) aspirant, Manoj from Maharashtra's Pune thanked the central government and said, I accept that this is a good decision taken by the government. I welcome it. A student from Punjab's Mohali said, Both parents and students look forward to something affordable. We, as students, look for other countries that are affordable to live in or for our tuition fees. The government of India has taken this step and it's helpful. Another student from Mohali called it a good decision coming from the ministry and said, it will benefit students and the parents. Students can save their money for higher education. A student from Rajasthan's Kota said, It is beneficial to the students and their parents because while coming here, we are worried about our parents. Though GST is a small amount, that amount of reduction in expense is also a huge support. This is a very good step. Another student from Kota said, Those students who could not afford to come to Kota can now do it because the hostel expenses will decrease. This is a very good step from the government. Varsity professors also lauded the government's decision and said that by eliminating the GST burden on PG housing, the government has demonstrated a strong commitment to empowering the youth and investing in the future of India. They also said that the benefits of this policy change will be far-reaching, as it will enable more students to pursue higher education without the added financial burden of GST on their living expenses. This decisive move by the Prime Minister is a significant step towards making India a global leader in affordable and accessible education. We deeply appreciate Prime Minister Modi's decisive action in removing the GST from PG accommodations, said Ashok Kumar Mittal, Member of Parliament (Rajya Sabha) and Chancellor of Lovely Professional University (LPU). This move will ease the financial strain on students and their families, allowing them to focus on their studies and unlock their full potential. It is a true win for the academic community in India, he added. Chancellor of Chandigarh University and Rajya Sabha member Satnam Singh Sandhu called it a very big historic decision and said that it is a very big relief to students and parents. In its third tenure, the Modi government has given a very big gift to the students of the country. So a large number of students used to live in PG or hostels away from the campus the burden of 12 per cent GST has been removed. This is a very big relief news for the students as well as for their parents, he said. This is a very big gift given by the Modi Government to the students. Apart from money, this is a very big encouragement. This is an indication that our new government is very concerned about the students of our country, Sandhu added. According to officials, prior to this change, PG owners had to navigate complex legal requirements and engage financial advisors to properly file GST returns, with the associated costs being passed on to the students. The GST on PG rentals was a significant added expense for us, both in terms of the tax itself and the administrative burden, said Sukhpreet Singh, a PG owner in Phagwara. Now, this burden has been lifted, and we can provide more affordable accommodation to students, he added. (ANI)

Signify India's Role in Global Lighting Revolution

Signify India's Role in Global Lighting Revolution Signify's India market is gaining prominence daily as the company evaluates its manufacturing capacity in the country under the China Plus-One strategy, a senior official disclosed. Signify India's Vice-Chairman and Managing Director, Sumit Joshi, highlighted that the Indian market is not only vital for domestic business but also in propelling Signify's global growth from India. Formerly known as Philips Lighting, Signify India is instrumental in the design and R&D for the global lighting business, with a burgeoning role in the electronics ecosystem as semiconductor development advances. India's market is extremely crucial due to its domestic potential and the increasing global importance, Joshi told PTI. The company envisions India as a significant manufacturing base for global markets, driven by the China Plus-One strategy. Joshi noted that Indias electronics ecosystem is expected to mature over the next 6-7 years, despite the current lack of crucial components like semiconductors. A concerted effort by the government and private players will enhance this ecosystem, expanding the role of manufacturing, he added. Signifys R&D transformation in India is evident, spurred by the Indian government's successful PLI scheme for LED light manufacturing. The company has utilized this scheme for substantial capital investments and is keenly awaiting its next phase. Signify operates R&D facilities in Noida and Pune, an innovation lab in Bengaluru, and a manufacturing plant in Vadodara. Brands like Ecolink, created in India for the affordable segment, now operate in over 15 countries, with Signify exporting to around 15 markets from India. The Indian lighting industry, transitioning from CFL to LED, is witnessing growth driven by consumer upgrades to smart connected lighting. Joshi emphasized that the next phase of lighting evolution involves smart connected lighting, expected to see significant uptake in various sectors including hospitality, healthcare, and residential uses. The industrys shift towards efficient LED technology is also helping India in energy consumption.

Home supply drops 13% in Apr-Jun due to fewer project launches: PropEquity

Fresh supply of housing units is estimated to decline 13 per cent during this quarter across nine major cities with builders launching less number of projects because of the general election, according to real estate data analytic firm PropEquity.

Climate change: Volcanic eruption of heatwaves

NEW DELHI : This summer has seen among the longest prolonged heatwave periods in Indias meteorological history. Soaring temperatures of 45-50C - some places reported over 50C - continued for over a month in May and June in the Northwest region. Multiple fire accidents during the same period added to the distress, severely taking its toll on the health and medical infrastructure of the country. The record breaking spell of excess heatwaves created a domino effect and a perfect storm for a series of disasters. It all began with the massive wildfires in Uttarakhand and Himachal Pradesh, affecting the quality of air and increasing the heat-trapping greenhouse gases. Frequent incidents of fire in hospitals and high rises followed, leading to unfortunate loss of lives. The demand for electricity to run cooling equipment shot up like never before. And Delhi is witnessing an unprecedented drinking water crisis. On June 6, Union Cabinet Secretary Rajiv Gauba chaired a meeting of the National Crisis Management Committee to review the preparedness to deal with heatwaves and forest fires. Earlier, on June 2, Prime Minister Narendra Modi chaired a meeting on forest fire incidents and directed mitigation efforts with more alacrity. Rise in fire cases An unusually long period of severe heatwave made the situation unbearable in the Northwest. Cities recorded an unprecedented rise in fire emergencies. For instance, the Delhi Fire Service has been getting as many as 100-200 SOS calls every day. The only parallel for this level of intensity of calls is during Diwali where cracker accidents keep the fire service department on their toes. The first 20 days of June this year witnessed a 155% rise in fire SOS calls compared to the same period in Delhi last year. In June 2023, the Delhi Fire Service reported 997 fire calls; the corresponding figure this year is 2,549. Even the loss of lives reported during the same period was double that of the previous year. Moreover, April and May recorded an increase in fire cases and the number of deaths. Distress calls zoomed, which include animal and bird rescue calls. Overloaded electrical outlets increased the strain on the systems significantly, heightening the fire risk. It was responsible for 70% of the residential or commercial complex fires, said Atul Garg, Directorate General Fire Services, Civil Defence and Home Guards, Union home ministry to this newspaper. Besides, there are a number of cases where commercial establishments flout fire safety norms, like the gaming zone blaze in Gujarats Rajkot that killed 27 weekend revellers and the one at a children's hospital in Delhi where seven babies died. Reports suggest that Delhi witnessed over 66 hospital fires in the past two years. Hospitals have a confluence of factors that heighten fire risk, said Keerthi DSouza, a fire safety auditor with Life Giver Assurance Services, Bengaluru. High concentrations of oxygen in intensive care units, neonatal intensive care units, and operation rooms create an environment ripe for combustion, she explained. Additionally, split air conditioners, commonly used in these areas, can malfunction and ignite. Furthermore, cost concerns may lead hospitals to neglect essential fire safety measures, putting lives at stake,said DSouza. According to the latest National Crime Record Bureau data, 7,435 people died in 7,566 fire accidents across the country in 2022. Rising urban fire is a combination of high temperature, extremely dry conditions and the absence of sufficient green spaces, said Monalisa Sen of ICLEI, which works on urban sustainable development. Fire cases get further compounded with poor urban planning, Sen added. The load of the intense heat falls on the air conditioning (AC) system. Compressors in the air conditioners, which are exposed to direct sunlight, have been known to catch fire. For instance, a fire in a garment company in the Delhi-NCR region began at the AC unit from where it quickly spread and triggered an LPG cylinder blast. Bursting of AC is because of overheating and overloading, said R Srinivas, a former Town Planner. Direct exposure of the AC to sunlight leads to overheating of condensers, which reduces its efficiency and keeps the room warmer. So, the thermostat doesn't come into play and the AC works longer, leading to overheating and fire accidents, he added. Urban heat island The rise in the number of migrant populations in urban areas led to an increase in unplanned urbanisation. Buildings came up in encroached forest areas and water bodies, which are essential for regulating heat in urban areas. For instance, in the 1970s, there were over 200 water bodies in Delhi and its surrounding areas. Now, only 20 such lakes exist. Consequently, cities have turned into urban heat islands where buildings, roads and other infrastructures absorb and re-emit heat, making the urban jungle several degrees hotter than the surrounding rural areas. High-rise buildings and the concrete setup in the cities do not let the excess heat escape at night. As the structures fail to cool down, the heatwave continues into the night. Open green spaces and natural environments with trees can help release the heat faster during the night, said Dr Roxy Mathew Koll, climate scientist at the Indian Institute of Tropical Meteorology in Pune. Koll explained that people do not appreciate natural spaces as much as they do skyscrapers. Add to that some haphazard city planning, poor architecture and unsustainable construction, and the recipe for an urban heat island is complete, said Koll. The longest streak of heatwaves led to a record power demand in Delhi. The all-time high demand in the Capital this year was of a whopping 8,647 MW. Another record was of Delhis peak power demand crossing 7,000 MW for the 30th consecutive day. On the business side, the cooling equipment industry hasn't had it this good in years. Its sales volume has gone up by over 40% this year as compared to last summer. In fact, manufacturers of branded ACs flew in critical parts from abroad to meet the unexpectedly high demand. However, reports on regular power outages from various parts of Delhi-NCR added to the people's misery. It increased the health risk to children and the elderly. The current drinking water crisis in the Capital and its surrounding areas, with the Delhi government accusing Haryana of less supply of water, pushed the city to its brink. Health emergency Recent visuals of unclaimed bodies bound in white and polybags strewn outside hospitals in Delhi-NCR due to lack of space in mortuaries captured the plight of the marginalised lot. Reports suggest that the relentless spell of heatwaves claimed multiple lives of the destitute and the homeless. The videos went viral on social media and evoked strong reactions. However, the official heatwave toll compiled from across the country recently stood at just 143, while only around 42,000 people suffered from heat stroke between March 1 and June 20. But experts are not convinced the data captures the actual situation on the ground. For example, the Centre for Holistic Development, a Delhi-based non-profit, claimed that 278 homeless people have been found dead on Delhi-NCR streets this month alone till June 19 due to severe heatwaves. Delhis largest crematorium, Nigambodh Ghat, is busier than ever. The average cremation count per day is 142, up from 60 before the heatwave. Even during the severe cold wave, the peak daily cremation was 90. Only when the Covid-19 pandemic struck, the per day cremation at Nigambodh Ghat was 253. Our body is not prepared for such a level of warming in this unprecedented summer heat, says well known environmentalist Sunita Narain, Director General of the Centre for Science and Environment. Besides, a new analysis shows that Indians are getting less sleep due to rising nighttime temperature above the 25C threshold. Mumbai tops the list among the metros while the situation is the worst in the East. This decidedly is something policy makers need to sleep on and evolve quick solutions.

'Sambhavami Yuge Yuge' Movie Review: Bridging ancient wisdom with present-day realities

The title Sambhavami Yuge Yuge draws a connection to ancient mythology, echoing Lord Sri Krishnas pledge in the Bhagavad Gita to reincarnate across ages to uphold righteousness. Chetan Chandrashekar ingeniously intertwines this timeless mythos with the rustic backdrop of contemporary India, skillfully reimagining the epic saga of Arjuna and Krishna within the confines of a modern village. At the heart of the narrative is Arjun (Jayaram Shetty), a young and dynamic leader who navigates the intricacies of the village panchayat with unwavering dedication. His initiatives to address fundamental needs like clean water and a cooperative dairy earn him the respect and admiration of the villagers. However, the arrival of DC Pratap (Pramod Shetty) disrupts this harmonious equilibrium, sparking a clash of egos that threatens the villages progress. As tensions mount, the film compellingly examines whether Arjuns visionary leadership can withstand external pressures or whether the village will succumb to unforeseen challenges. Amidst these trials, personal tragedies, such as the heartbreaking loss of his mother, test Arjuns resilience and determination.

NCP (SP) won't settle for less in assembly seat-sharing: Sharad Pawar

The NCP (SP) agreed to contest fewer seats than its Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) allies during the Lok Sabha elections but the situation would be different in the assembly polls, a party leader has quoted its supremo Sharad Pawar as saying.

Rising night temp leading to lesser sleep, finds study

NEW DELHI: Night-time temperature rising above threshold level 25C is leading to inadequate sleep among Indians, as per a new analysis. While Mumbai tops among the metros, the Eastern part of the country is the worst where sleeplessness is higher. Higher night-time temperatures can cause physiological discomfort and impact human health by preventing body temperature from cooling off during the night, increasing mortality risks. Studies show that above the 25 C tropical threshold, sleep quality deteriorates and makes it harder for people to recover from the heat of the day. The new analysis carried out by independent research organisations Climate Central and Climate trends shows that between 2018 and 2023, climate change is leading to a rise in night-time warming, which is impacting sleep quality and human health in Unfortunately, night-time temperatures have increased even more rapidly than daytime temperatures, eroding quality human sleep that can have a range of impacts such as impairing cognitive functioning, negatively affecting childrens brain development, and making workplace accidents more likely. Among the metro cities, Mumbai has seen the highest changes in the night time temperatures, with the city experiencing an additional 65 days of warmer nights whereas Delhi added four warmer nights. Moreover, the condition is getting worse in West Bengal and Assam. Cities like Jalpaiguri, Guwahati, Silchar, Dibrugarh and Siliguri experience between 80 and 86 additional days each year above the 25C threshold. Several cities across India saw between 15 and 50 additional days where the minimum temperatures exceeded 25C due to the influence of climate change, including Jaipur, with an additional 19 hot nights attributable to climate change. The high-rise buildings and concrete setup in the cities do not let the excess heat escape during the night, said Dr Roxy Mathew Koll, Climate Scientist, Indian Institute of Tropical Meteorology, Pune. As the temperatures do not cool down, the heatwave continues into the night. Open green spaces and natural environments can help release the heat, he added.
