Gujarat, Karnataka ranked best states in providing strong ecosystem for startups

Startups The exercise by the DPIIT is aimed at supporting states and UTs in developing their startup ecosystem and learning from each other's best practices. PTI Gujarat and Karnataka have been ranked as the best performers in developing startup ecosystem for budding entrepreneurs, according to the ranking of states and Union territories by the Department for Promotion of Industry and Internal Trade (DPIIT). Among smaller states having population of less than one crore, Meghalaya has been adjudged as the best performer. The rankings are based on the initiatives taken to develop the startup ecosystem for promoting budding entrepreneurs. For the third time in a row, Gujarat was ranked as the best performer. The exercise is aimed at supporting states and Union territories (UTs) in developing their startup ecosystem and learning from each other's best practices. A total of 24 states and 7 UTs participated in the exercise, which ranked them under five categories -- best performers, top performers, leaders, aspiring leaders and emerging startup ecosystems. The states and UTs were also ranked under these five categories based on the population of less than one crore. Kerala, Maharashtra, Odisha, Telangana and Jammu and Kashmir were categorised as the top performers. Punjab, Tamil Nadu, Uttarakhand, Uttar Pradesh, Andaman and Nicobar Islands, Arunachal Pradesh, and Goa are in the leaders category. States and UTs in the aspiring leaders' category include Chhattisgarh, Delhi, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, Chandigarh, Puducherry and Nagaland. According to the ranking, the emerging startup ecosystems category includes Andhra Pradesh, Bihar, Mizoram and Ladakh. They were evaluated across seven reform areas consisting of 26 action points, ranging from institutional support, fostering innovation, access to market, incubation and funding support. DPIIT Secretary Anurag Jain said that the exercise plays a crucial role in easing the business environment for startups in the country. The states' startup ranking 2021 was released by Commerce and Industry Minister Piyush Goyal in New Delhi. Goyal suggested all the stakeholders to aspire for becoming the number one startup ecosystem in the world from the third position at present.Can we look at some district-level competition also, he asked. He also asked the states to share best practices and handhold each other in further improving the ecosystem. The government, he said, has acted as a catalyst for startups rather than a controller through initiatives like Fund of Funds, Seed Fund Scheme, income tax exemption for three years and resolving the issue of Angel Tax. Commenting on the rankings, Fintech company IOUX co-founder Vineet K Sachdev said that presently startups are subjected to a large number of regulatory compliances of various departments like Income Tax, GST, Labour, Environment, and Banks, he said.IOUX plans to offer blockchain-based solutions to this cumbersome process to ease the compliance burden of startups. Through the blockchain based process, all concerned departments like taxation, banks, and non-banking financial companies will be allowed to verify documents with proper e-KYC and digital signatures for recording regulatory compliances, Sachdev added.

Trans activists disappointed as Madras HC dismisses plea seeking separate reservations

Transgender rights The Madras High Court had on Wednesday dismissed a petition seeking special reservations for transgender persons, after the Tamil Nadu government submitted that they were already getting reservation benefits under MBC quota. Nithya Pandian The Madras High Courts decision to dismiss a petition seeking reservations for transgender persons in government jobs has come as an upsetting setback to activists in Tamil Nadu, who have been fighting for separate reservations for the transgender community for years. Chief Justice Munishwar Nath Bhandari and Justice N Mala had on Wednesday, June 29, disposed of the plea filed by activist P Sudha, after the Tamil Nadu government submitted that people of the community have already been listed under the Most Backward Classes (MBC) category, and that they can hence get reservation benefits under the MBC quota. In the petition, the activist had pointed out that while the Supreme Court has recognised transgender persons and ordered to provide them with voter ID cards, passports, admission to educational institutions etc, they were yet to get any welfare assistance or reservation. As the petition was being heard, Advocate General R Shunmugasundaram, representing the Tamil Nadu government, stated in court that if the person concerned belongs to a Scheduled Caste (SC) or Scheduled Tribe (ST), they are entitled to get reservation under those respective categories. He also presented in court a government order that made trans women entitled to the 30% reservation provided to cisgender women in the state for government employment. The Madras High Court recorded his submission and dismissed the petition, which Sudha had filed afterthe Uttarakhand High Court in 2018 directed the state government to provide reservation to transgenders in educational institutions and public appointments. Read: Gay teen allegedly locked up by family in TN, partner approaches Madras HC Sudha, a Chennai-based trans rights activist and a former member of the Tamil Nadu Transgender Welfare Board, had approached the High Court seeking separate reservation for trans persons four years ago after her requests for the same were denied by the Board. Speaking to TNM, Sudha reiterated the need for at least 1-2% separate reservation for transgender people, considering the heavy competition within the already existing quota. It would be difficult for people in the community to get reservation via the existing quota. Separate reservations are the only way to empower them, she said. The activist pointed out that the High Court too had earlier recommended the government to consider providing separate reservation to transgender people. But now, the judges have just accepted the state government's submission. I hope this government will consider our demands and provide separate reservations, she added. It was on March 2 that a Madras HC judge strongly urged the state government to adopt a specified percentage of special reservation for trans persons in public employment, apart from other relaxations and concessions extended to the socially and economically backward classes. Justice MS Ramesh had observed that clubbing transgender candidates who identify themselves as female along with women candidates, and those who identify themselves as male or third gender under the general category, was an infringement on their right to equality. After the HC disposed of the petition on Wednesday, trans rights activist Grace Banu took to Twitter to point out that Not all the trans are MBC. SC/ST Trans is also there. How do we access the MBC category? Is this your social justice? not at all (sic). In another tweet, she tagged Tamil Nadu Chief Minister MK Stalin along with a hashtag calling for horizontal reservation for trans persons. Horizontal reservation refers to the equal opportunity provided to other categories of beneficiaries such as women, veterans, the transgender community, and individuals with disabilities, cutting through the reservation for vertical categories such as SC, ST, and OBC. This is already done by @AIADMKOfficial we are completely against this order its against social justice Not all the trans are MBC @mkstalin .Sc/St Trans is also there how do we access the MBC category? is this your social justice? not at all. https://t.co/5igzvqhA2p GRACE BANU (@thirunangai) June 29, 2022 The fight for horizontal reservation for trans people started in 2013. This observation by the court is never going to stop us from continuing this fight, Grace Banu told TNM. It was after many legal fights that members of the trans community were even able to participate in the Tamil Nadu Public Service Commission (TNPSC) and Tamil Nadu Uniformed Services Recruitment Board (TNUSRB) exams, she pointed out. In 2016, the Madras HC had asked the state government to decide on providing reservations for trans people. The then AIADMK government too had categorised the entire transgender community under the MBC category, in accordance with the NALSA Vs Union of India judgment, which states that trans people can be recognised as a socially and educationally backward class of citizens. But that doesn't mean that they have to compete with the castes listed under the MBC category for reservation, Grace said. In 2017, Grace had approached the Madras HC as well as the Supreme Court of India seeking horizontal reservation for trans persons. The hearing of that petition is still underway in the HC. In (Wednesdays) hearing, the Tamil Nadu government has only reiterated the details of a decision already made by the former AIADMK government. The party (DMK) which always speaks of social justice has nothing of its own to say in the court now, she said. Grace added that regarding the empowerment of cis women, Chief Minister MK Stalin had said that education was the only powerful tool that would empower them. Is it not the same for transgender persons? Welfare measures alone would take the trans community nowhere. What we need is a rights-based approach towards empowerment, she said. Jaya, General Manager of the Sahodaran organisation, which works for the empowerment of transgender persons, noted that the current DMK government has introduced many good initiatives to empower and improve the lives of trans people. But the governments reply to the HC on Wednesday was a disappointment for us. It sounded like a hasty decision. We expect this DMK government to make things easier for us, as it has always done in the past, she told TNM. The decision might have been made based on the NALSA vs Union of India judgment. But that was in 2014. Trans persons had welcomed the move at the time because they had not received any recognition before that. But now, we are expecting proactive actions from the state government to empower the community, she said. The DMK government had also submitted in the court that trans women are entitled to the 30% reservation that exists for cis women, Jaya pointed out. But the underprivileged and marginalised trans community has to fight very hard to win such a competition for reservation benefits. Even a BJP-governed state like Karnataka has introduced separate reservation for trans people, she said. She demanded that the DMK government, which has introduced many schemes for the betterment of the community, also take measures to provide separate reservations for trans persons. It would be the only way to empower the community, she added. Watch: How ISRO scientist Nambi Narayanan was exonerated in the ISRO spy case

We will capture south states: Amit Shah at BJP meeting in Hyderabad

Politics One of the crucial subjects discussed while passing the political resolution was the recent Supreme Court verdict, which gave a clean chit to Prime Minister Narendra Modi in the 2002 Gujarat riots case. Balakrishna Ganeshan File Photo of Amit Shah/PTI Asserting that the BJP has captured and strengthened its position in the north eastern states, Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Sunday, July 3 said that its next focus would be on the southern non-BJP states like Telangana, Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu, Kerala, and even Orissa and West Bengal. Speaking on the second day of the partys National Executive Meeting being held in Hyderabad, the Home Minister said that the BJP will soon put an end to the dynasty politics of the TRS and the Trinamool Congress in Telangana and West Bengal respectively and come to power, according to Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma, who briefed the media about the political resolution passed by Shah. The resolution was seconded by Karnataka Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai and Biswa. Referring to the partys recent victory in Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Manipur and Goa, Shah said that the BJP had ended politics based on caste, dynasty politics and appeasement politics. The politics is now spoken on the lines of performance, development and prosperity, Biswa quoted Shah as saying. Shah further reportedly asserted that the BJP would remain in power for the next 30 years. One of the crucial subjects discussed while passing the political resolution was the recent Supreme Court verdict, which gave a clean chit to Prime Minister Narendra Modi in the 2002 Gujarat riots case based on the Special Investigation Team probe. Shah said that the verdict was historic and exposed the alleged conspiracy by certain sections of the media opposed to the ideology of the BJP, NGOs and the Opposition parties who had allegedly colluded against Modi. Presently, two persons activist Teesta Setalvad and former Gujarat police intelligence chief RB Sreekumar have been arrested for allegedly fabricating evidence against Modi in the case. Eulogising Modi, Shah said that for 20 years the Prime Minister struggled like Lord Shiva, who drank poison, and faced insults by appearing before the SIT. He didnt enact any drama while appearing before the SIT, unlike others (referring to Rahul Gandhi) facing law enforcement agencies, Shah reportedly said in the meeting. In the meeting, PM Modi while being thankful for the opportunity to endorse the candidature of President Ramnath Kovind who belongs to a Dalit community and now Draupadi Murmu who belongs to the Adivasi community, as the President, urged the party members to widely publicise the stories of her background and humble beginnings, Biswa said. Though it is a poll process involving the electoral college, Murmus story should be brought into the limelight, the PM reportedly said. Shah said that the BJP would soon form the government in both Telangana and West Bengal.

Kerala, other states urge Union govt to extend GST compensation by five more years

Finance A final decision is likely to be taken in the next GST council meeting in the first week of August, Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman said. PTI PTI The Kerala government on Wednesday, June 29, sent a letter to Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman requesting her to consider extending the period of GST compensation to states, which is set to expire at the end of this month, by another five years and to enhance the revenue sharing of tax to a 60:40 ratio between the states and the Union government. In the letter written by Kerala Finance Minister KN Balagopal, the southern state also urged the Union Minister, who is also the chairperson of the GST Council, to consider phasing out the unusually higher rates of cesses and surcharges under Article 271 of the Constitution. The communication was sent by Balagopal after the conclusion of the GST Council meeting in which about a dozen states pitched for extending by a few years the compensation paid to states for revenue lost from the implementation of the Goods and Services Tax (GST) regime. The GST Council, the highest decision-making body of the indirect tax regime, however, did not take any decision at its meeting held in Chandigarh. A final decision is likely to be taken in the next GST council meeting in the first week of August, Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman said while talking to the media after the 47th GST Council meeting. As many as 16 states spoke on GST compensation in today's meeting. Of this there were 3-4 states that said that they have to stand on their own and not depend on compensation, Nirmala said. Meanwhile, the Kerala Finance Minister, in his letter, cites the adverse impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and resultant hard fiscal squeeze on states, continuous reduction in the inter se share of Kerala from the divisible pool as well which causes a fall in central share and the Union Finance Ministry's move to truncate open market borrowing ceilings of the states, as reasons behind the request. To catalyse economic growth and lend support to sections of society who bore the brunt of the pandemic, the states cannot cut back their welfare spending at this moment and in the near future, he said. With rigid borrowing conditions and downwardly inflexible expenditure, even if the revenue grows in a normal manner, the states' finances will face liquidity constraints. It is in this context that the continuance of the GST compensation becomes critically important for the states, the letter said. Balagopal further said that in a cooperative federal set up, if the states' finances are in difficulty, the country's overall economic growth will also be stymied. Hence, we request that the compensation should be continued till the situation shows definite signs of a turnaround. The issue should be considered as an agenda item in the forthcoming meeting of the GST Council, he said. He also said that despite expert committees recommending a higher share for the states at a 60:40 ratio in the GST revenue, presently it was a 50-50 division. Balagopal said the states had agreed that State GST (SGST) be imposed at the same rate as Central GST (CGST) in the expectation of legislatively guaranteed GST compensation. He further said that reduction in GST rates in 2017 has not led to any reduction in prices of goods and ordinary people did not benefit from the same. The other reasons he cited for the continuation of the GST compensation period included GST return system not fully materialised yet, cross verification of invoices not complete at present and in addition to that the share of central surcharges and cesses have been increasing from around 10% to 20% over the last decade which has led to reduction in share of states from the divisible pool as a percentage of the Gross Tax Revenue of the Union. As per data on revenue growth collated for the Council meeting, only five out of 31 states/UTs Arunachal Pradesh, Manipur, Mizoram, Nagaland, Sikkim registered a revenue growth higher than the protected revenue rate for states under the GST in the financial year 2021-22. Puducherry, Punjab, Uttarakhand and Himachal Pradesh have recorded the highest revenue gap between the protected revenue and post-settlement gross state GST revenue in 2021-22. Though states' protected revenue has been growing at 14% compounded growth, the cess collection did not increase in the same proportion, the COVID-19 pandemic further increased the gap between projected revenue and the actual revenue receipt, including a reduction in cess collection. To meet the resource gap of the states due to the short release of compensation, the Union government borrowed Rs 1.1 lakh crore in 2020-21 and Rs 1.59 lakh crore in 2021-22 as back-to-back loans to meet a part of the shortfall in cess collection. The Union government, last week, notified extension of the compensation cess, levied on luxury and demerit goods, till March 2026 to repay borrowing that were done in 2020-21 and 2021-22 to compensate states for GST revenue loss.

Subsequently, the Vigilance Department had started cracking down on the IAS officer. Following the complaint, Dr. Ram Vilas Yadav's assets were being disclosed one after the other. Yadav is said to have a big bungalow in Lucknow's Dilkusha Vihar Colony. He also has a school in the name of Janata Vidyalaya on a government land in Kursi Road. In the name of his wife Kusum Vilas, two lands worth lakhs have been found in Ghazipur district.
