Guidelines regarding grant of Group Pilgrim Visa streamlined 

It has been reported that the minority communities in Pakistan coming on Group Pilgrim Visa issued by the High Commission of India in Pakistan were facing difficulties with regard to reporting to the Foreigners Registration Officer (FRO) concerned at the place of their visit. 

The Union Ministry of Home Affairs has therefore streamlined the procedure for grant of Group Pilgrim Visa to people of minority communities in Pakistan who wish to visit India and are facing problems. Relaxation has also been granted to facilitate their entry and stay in India. 

The revised guidelines for the grant of Group Pilgrim Visa allow the number in each Group to 50 and every group to have a group leader. The individual members of the Group will not be required to report to the FRO concerned. The group leader will only be responsible for reporting to the Foreigners Registration Officer (FRO) concerned at each place of visit within 24 hours of arrival at the specified place of stay.

The Central Government and the UGC have laid down various provisions for regulating recruitment of teachers and academic staff in universities and colleges and their career advancement in UGC funded institutions.

The Government has also received several petitions regarding the policy for selections to the post of Assistant Professors in Universities and Colleges, including such State higher educational institutions. The UGC has further, in the past, made certain recommendations in the matter.

(a) Evaluation of the Academic Performance Indicator (API) Scheme as regards the entry point and career advancement of teachers by taking into account its criticism and suggest suitable improvements/alternatives. 

(b) Evaluation of Ph.D-NET qualifications for entry of teachers and to accordingly suggest a policy for selections. 

(c) Consideration of the problems and issues related to Ad-hoc and Contractual appointments in Central Universities and recommendations to resolve them. 

The Committee is chaired by Prof. Arun Nigavekar, former Chairman, UGC. The Committee Members are Shri Sumit Bose, former Secretary, Government of India, Prof. Sunil Gupta, former Vice-Chancellor, Himachal Pradesh University, Prof. B. Thimme Gowda, former Vice-Chancellor, Bangalore University, Prof. Ashwini Kumar Mohapatra, Professor, Jawaharlal Nehru University and Shri S.S. Sandhu, Joint Secretary, MHRD (as the Member-Convener).

“CERC has Played a Parenting Role in the Regulatory set up of the Country”- Shri Piyush Goyal 

Inaugurates CERC’s New Logo and Website 

Shri Piyush Goyal, Union Minister of State (IC) for Power, Coal and New & Renewable Energy said that Central Electricity Regulatory Commission (CERC) has played a parenting role in the regulatory set up in the country. While speaking at the function of CERC’s foundation day here today, Shri Goyal said that CERC has acted as benchmark regulator in the country. Complimenting CERC for completing 17 years of remarkable contribution and service to the nation, the Minister said that regulator has to act as a bridge between developers and the consumers and the regulator simultaneously balancing the interest of both parties. He expressed his satisfaction that the regulators in India have contributed immensely in this regard. He narrated five principles of proportionality, consistency, accountability, transparency and targeting for better productivity. Shri Goyal underlined the need for fast decision making and also to keep power affordable. 

On the occasion , Sh. M.J. Akbar, Member of Parliament (RS), in his annual day lecture, emphasized the role of electricity in enhancing productivity of work, creation of jobs, elimination of poverty and democratisation of knowledge. Shri Gireesh Pradhan, Chairperson CERC, said that the institute has contributed to the growth and development of power sector over the years. 

The Minister also inaugurated the modified website of CERC on the occasion. The website is given a new presentation in order to improve user interface and to provide better access to information to the masses. Shri Goyal also unveiled new logo of CERC along with the website. The new logo was designed by National Institute of Design, Ahmedabad to symbolise the changing face of CERC in the country from merely being a “tariff setter” to a “facilitator of development” of power sector and the market. The existing logo of CERC was designed in late 1990s which basically focussed on CERC role of being fair and impartial regulator balancing the interest of generators of power and the consumers. Shri A.K. Singhal, Member, CERC, Ahri A.S. Bakshi, Member, CERC, officers and staff of CERC were also present at the event. 

CERC BACKGROUND

The Central Electricity Regulatory Commission (CERC) was established in 1998 under Electricity Regulatory Commission (ERC) Act, 1998. The main objective of CERC is to monitor power tariff regulations in the country. The Commission intends to promote competition, efficiency and economy in bulk power markets, improve the quality of supply, promote investments and advise government on the removal of institutional barriers to bridge the demand supply gap and thus foster the interests of consumers.
