projects under PM Package including the Civil Secretariat, Itanagar Water Supply
Scheme and MLA Apartments at Itanagar. The Prime Minister consented to the same at
a meeting with the CM at New Delhi today to discuss important issues related to the
development of the state.
The Chief Minister highlighted the important issue of the state including losing
out on projects funded by agencies such as World Bank and Asian Development Bank
(ADB) due to irrational objections of China. He fervently appealed the Prime Minister
to compensate the same with alternative funds.
Tuki reiterated that Arunachal Pradesh is the only state in the North Eastern Region
deprived of project funding from external international agencies which has impeded
development in crucial sectors such as Water Resources, Roads etc. He specifically
pointed out a case of the Integrated Flood and River Erosion Management (IFREM) project
of ADB where Arunachal Pradesh was initially included for funding of Rs. 396 Crore
but was subsequently left out. Tuki urged the PM to facilitate funding for the same
from other sources.

to the Trans Arunachal Highway, Border Roads Organisation (BRO) Projects, Central
Road Funds among others. In view of the slow pace of the road projects undertaken
by BRO, the Chief Minister appealed to Fernandez to transfer certain BRO roads to

some of the BRO roads to other reputed agencies.

appealed for increasing the allocation under Central Roads Fund from the present
Rs. 40 crores allotted to the state.

projects related to 4 laning of Itanagar to Banderdewa road and 2 laning of Itanagar
to Jote road. He emphasised that Jote is an upcoming educational hub which needs
enhanced connectivity to the state capital.

Aohali drinking water project yet to see light of day
PASIGHAT, Jun 24: Inordinate delay in completion of drinking water mega project executed
by Public Health Engineering Department (PHED) at Aohali in Mebo Sub-Division has
irked the villagers.
The much-hyped drinking water mega projects at Aohali, 21 km east of Mebo town started
in 2010 and its scheduled time of completion was March 2012. The project, if once
completed, will supply drinking water to the villages like Siluk, Kiyit, Ngopok,
The project worth Rs 20 crore was funded by Union Ministry of Development of Northeastern
Region (DoNER)) under Non-Lapsable Central Pool of Resources (NLCPR). The DoNER ministry,
during March, 2010 accorded necessary administrative and financial approval for “Providing
potable drinking water supply to Mebo Sub-division headquarters and adjoining villages
in East Siang district.
Lack of safe drinking water supply in the villages is compelling the consumers to
fetch water from unhygienic sources resulting in spread of various water-born diseases.
It is alleged that insufficient water is being supplied through this 200 mm DI pipe
to Mebo town, which is causing concern among the local residents.
“Though huge amount has been spent out of the released fund water supply has not
been improved under the project,” alleged some leading citizens of Mebo area.
It is alleged that the department is constructing some light RCC post for holding
the heavy DI pipe at river-crossing points instead of Bailey bridge.
It is observed that the weak RCC structures have already started to fell down onset
of monsoon this year. Some RCC posts meant for laying DI pipe at Kadang River are
seen falling down on the riverbed thanks to utter irresponsibility of the PHC engineers.
“It will be interesting to see how the weak RCC posts will hold the heavy DI pipes
at the time of flood when they started to fall on the ground in the pre monsoon shower”,
quipped a local people.
Annoyed over the irresponsible conduct of the PHC engineers regarding the mega drinking
water project, Lenzing Pertin, a senior BJP leader of Mebo has sought proper enquiry
into the alleged financial irregularity in the implementation of the mega project.
He also flayed local MLA for his ‘indifferent attitude’ towards the problems faced
by the people of his constituency.
Allegations false and baseless: Apex Bank
ITANAGAR, Jun 24: Arunachal Pradesh Apex Bank has reacted strongly to the news items
published in this daily on July 22 and said that the allegations were false and
Giving up-to-date information regarding implementation of the Mukhya Mantri Prayatan
Vikash Yojana and role of the Apex Bank, the Bank’s Managing Director Tsering
Thongdok in a release today said that publication of such news item without going
through the details informations discouraged the initiative of the bank.
In the news item a group of beneficiaries from East Siang have complained against
Apex Bank for ‘refusing to pay the subsidy amount as promised earlier’. According
to the beneficiaries bank is refusing to release the subsidy amount and is insisting
that it will release it only after beneficiaries clear the loan amount in 36 months
duration. However, the Apex Bank said the beneficiaries have raised complaint without
knowing the facts.
“If any individual beneficiary has any sort of confusion in the matter of MMPVY,
they should visit the Apex Bank H.O. for clarification and verify the records before
going to press. If any beneficiary is not satisfied with the Govt/ Apex Bank arrangement
for this scheme, they are free to opt out of the scheme at any time,” the release
“The management of the bank after thorough examination of the scheme, agreed to finance
100 vehicles on relaxed terms and conditions like exemption from maintenance of bank
account for at least 6 months, margin money reduced to 20% from minimum 25%, exemption
of cash security (FD) of 20% of the loan amount etc., considering the importance
of the scheme for economic development of the state.
The selection of the beneficiaries were done by the respective Deputy Commissioners
at the district level through a transparent mechanism and list of the selected candidates
were provided to bank by the Directorate of Tourism with a request to sanction and
release before 14th April as the panchayat election code of conduct came into effect
from 16th April last. A special meeting of the banks’ Loan Committee was convened
on 9.4.2013 and sanctioned all the 54 loan applications received. The bank could
complete formalities and sanctioned loan of 44 beneficiaries by 12th April and made
payments to different dealers amounting to Rs. 440.94 Lakhs being the cost of vehicles
through RTGS out of which Bank Loan Component was Rs. 2,62,64,000.00, subsidy Rs132,00,000,
rest Rs. 98.56 Lakhs as margin money. By that time the department could not park
any govt. subsidy against the vehicles due to ban imposed by state govt. However,
the bank had made full payment to dealers so that the dealers can make delivery to
beneficiaries smoothly. By 13th April only 35 nos. of vehicles were delivered by
the dealers which were flagged off ceremonially and the remaining 9 vehicles were
also delivered by the dealers subsequently.
As 46 applicants could not submit their applications before flag off ceremony, the
MD of the Apex Bank met State Election Commissioner, Panchayati Raj in order to enquire
whether bank can sanction the remaining schemes. SEC, however, said that bank should
not sanction any loan during period of code of conduct. So the bank could not process
for sanction of the loan till Code of Conduct was over on 23rd May, the release said
adding in the meantime the Tourism department released subsidy amount of Rs. 300
lakhs to the bank in May’13 only. The subsidy amount has been passed on the respective
branches for parking as back-ended subsidy against the loans disbursed by the branches.
Immediately after completion of election process, the bank called for submission
of applications from the remaining 46 beneficiaries and the Loan Committee meeting
was held on 5th June and sanctioned all the pending applications. However, as some
of the beneficiaries could not submit requisite documents, another 10 days time was
allowed to complete the formalities and on 16th June he committee formally sanctioned
all Loan proposals and disbursement of loans has started from 18th June onwards.
As the schemes for 2012-13 is almost implemented, the Secretary Tourism convened
a meeting on 20th June at his office inviting Apex bank officials and Dealers in
the Arunachal Pradesh for smooth implementation of next phase of the scheme for the
year 2013-14. In the meeting all the issues relating to scheme was discussed and
resolved for the interest of the beneficiaries and to make success of the noble
scheme of the CM, the MD further clarified.

Working women in India's metros are nearly twice as likely to invest to get rich
than those in smaller towns according to a nationwide survey report released on Friday
last. Only 18 per cent, or less than one in every five working women in non-metro
cities invest to become rich as compared to 34 per cent in metros.
This is essentially because women in the larger cities are far more anxious about
the financial security and the future of their children. These working women are
also keener on saving on taxes. The education of their children and the security
of their families top their list of priorities followed by concerns regarding the
marriage of their children.
The survey shows that around 41 per cent of working women, or two in every five,
are confident about their knowledge of financial products whereas around two women
in every three said they were willing to learn more about these instruments so that
they are more confident about investing. Nearly an equal number of women added they
would like to know how they could invest better.
Nearly three out of four women surveyed said that classroom training about financial
products was the best mode of learning about these instruments. In India, financial
planners and advisors conduct seminars and classes to educate investors.

the examination days for the last two- three years. In this connection, it is to
state that the electricity connection of the Circuit House-cum-Inspection Bungalow
has been disconnected since many years. When enquired, I have been told that due
to non-clearance of Electricity Bills to the Assam State Electricity Board (ASEB),
North Lakhimpur, the power supply has been withdrawn.

into the matters as a very special case and clear the dues at the earliest, so that
the boarders of Circuit House-cum-Inspection Bungalow, North Lakhimpur will take

Where are we heading?
Are we Arunachalees highly reactive or born with abnormal impulse behavioral genes?
Are we abnormally materialistic, abnormally egoist and hyperactive to day-to-day
activities? Are we abnormally having too much sense of belongingness to own community
or place or clan? Are we born with destructive and violent blood? Are our upbringing
and home atmosphere were at fault? So many such questions. Whom to blame-to govt,
to parents, to seniors, elders, society/community or to self??
My dear arunachalee brothers and sisters what went wrong with us and where we are
heading for? What is the solution for all this? Shall we blame it only to the Govt.
as usual and we are not part of the problems at all? Who will tackle and solve these
problems -state govt., central govt., America or UNO and can they and will they do
for us and why they will do us? My dear Arunachalee brothers and sisters, how long
shall we wait for external power to come and do for us and I hope they are surely
not an idiot. Shall we not do or even try ourselves at all before our own created
problems explode beyond recognition and never to mend .
My dear respected community based leaders like NGOs, societies, student unions, religious
organizations, business organizations, etc. the hopes for finding lasting solutions
rest only with all of you. My dear respected leaders find out lasting solutions for
us through discussions, dialogues, adopting right confidence building methodologies,
etc..We have high expectations from all of you that you will lead us for peaceful
coexistence and development for peace but do not lead us for destruction, anger,
hatred, dividing societies into tribal lines. My dear highly respected community
based leaders come forward and take up challenging work of Big Brotherly roles and
lead us where all the community feel Safe, Secure and Trust each other.

mean the government would only subsidy maximum Rs. 3.00 lacs (not 40% of the project
cost) even if you purchase a vehicle (like Renault Duster) which would cost around
Rs. 12.00 lacs. Likewise if one purchases a Tata Sumo with a price tag of Rs. 6.00
lacs, he can expect only 40% (Rs.2.40 lacs) and not Rs. 3.00 lacs. Therein there
are beneficiaries who misleadingly expect the higher margin money, irrespective of
the actual project cost.
Hope this clears the air for the too positive thinker.
