government is likely to be presented on February 1 instead of the last day of the month as part of an overhaul that would also scrap the practice of a separate railway budget The proposal for advancing of the budget and the merger of the railway budget with it will be considered on Wednesday at a meeting of the union Cabinet to be chaired by prime minister Narendra Modi who has been pushing for it PTI The cabinet will also consider the proposal for doing away with the distinction between plan and non-plan expenditure According to the proposal the entire Budget-making exercise will be advanced by 3-4 weeks so as to complete the legislative part of financial business before 1 April the start of a financial year Sources said the government plans to convene the Budget Session of Parliament before 25 January 2017 present the pre-Budget Economic Survey a day or two before the finance minister reads out the Budget on 1 February Towards that end the advance estimates for GDP will now be made on 7 January instead of 7 February and mid-year review of expenditure by various ministries is proposed to be completed by November 15 The idea sources said is to get the Budget passed by Parliament along with Appropriation Bill and the Finance Bill before 24 March as this would ensure implementation of the Budget proposals from April 1 According to the proposal moved by the ministry of finance Parliament would take a three-week break — from February 10/15 to March 10/15 to complete ministerial or departmental scrutiny by various parliamentary committees Once the rail and general Budgets are merged and the date of presentation is advanced there will be no requirement of separate Appropriation Bills as well as Vote on Account as is the current practice Even after the separate railway budget is scrapped and its proposals clubbed in the general Budget the Railways would continue to maintain its distinct entity status as a departmentally-run commercial undertaking as at present Also the Railways would be allowed to retain its functional autonomy with delegation of financial power rules to continue as is the case now sources said After the merger the Railways would not have to pay dividend to the central government and its capital at charge would stand to be wiped off Like for other departments the ministry of finance will provide gross budgetary support to the Railways for incurring its capital expenditure As regards removing the Plan and non-Plan classification of accounts it has already been announced by Finance Minister Arun Jaitley in his Budget for 2016-17 According to the proposal to ensure better targeting of benefits all concessional railway passes provided to various categories of concessionaires will be linked to Aadhar number Also the Railway Convention Committee which reviews the rate of dividend payable by the railways to the government will be disbanded Currently the panel also suggests the level of appropriation to various funds of the railways such as depreciation reserve funds development fund and pension fund Sources said advancement of presentation of the budget by a month and completion of budget related legislative business before March 31 would pave the way for early completion of budget cycle and enable ministries and departments to ensure better planning and execution of schemes from the beginning of the financial year Accordingly the budget calendar would be advanced by about 3 weeks from the current schedule of it starting from the last week of October Pre-budget consultations with various stakeholders are proposed to be completed by December 25 Ministries and departments would be asked to present their detailed Demand for Grants to Parliament by February 7 2017 After the merger of railway budget with the general budget one single Appropriation Bill will be presented to Parliament for consideration and voting on or before 24 March 2017 With the rollout of the goods and services

Justices AM Khanwilkar and DY Chandrachud issued notice to the Ryan International Group CEO Ryan Pinto and his parents founding chairman Augustine Pinto and managing director Grace Pinto and posted the matter for further hearing on 30 October The plea filed by Pradyuman’s father Barun Chandra Thakur sought cancellation of their interim bail granted by the High Court on 7 October The high court had on 28 September stayed the arrest of the three trustees of the Ryan group who had sought anticipatory bail in the case On 5 October the CBSE had told the apex court that the gruesome killing of a minor boy of Gurugram school took place due to the "negligence" of its administration as drivers conductors were allowed to use washrooms meant only for kids and staff The plea by Thakur alleges that the high court order granting interim bail and its order extending the relief was "erroneous" and should be set aside The petition said that CBI’s investigation was at a preliminary stage and granting interim bail to the respondents now "frustrates the criminal justice delivery system" The Pintos who are based in Mumbai had earlier approached the Bombay High Court as they apprehended arrest in the

really don’t know what these films will do but they are very timely” Rakeysh told IANS He has a point According to Unicef India the country has the largest number of people — over 564 million — still defecating in the open Also about 65 per cent of people in rural areas in India do not have access to toilets While Toilet: Ek Prem Katha releasing on Friday is trying to spread the message of Swachh Bharat by delving on the importance of making toilets in an entertaining way Mere Pyaare Prime Minister — with its intriguing title — will tell a humble story of a slum boy who wants to build a toilet for his mother Mehra said these stories go beyond the subject of toilets “The stories are not about toilets Stories are about human beings… So I hope that as a human story ‘Mere Pyaare…’ can reach out and touch hearts and move you in a way which is very positive and thereby the story becomes a part of a collective consciousness rather than what just might concern a selective consciousness” “I hope it becomes not just a talking point but an awareness Once there’s an awareness something can be done about it” He said somewhere “the voice of the film even tells you that rather than making mosques and temples it’s more important to make toilets” Prodded on why he said that the National Award-winning filmmaker clarified “I am not defying a belief… I don’t believe in mosques and temples I do believe they are essential to a society and people find their peace of mind and spiritual connect… But I also feel that the focus of the nation cannot be kept on that “It needs to shift now towards giving social security social benefits to the people of this country… Just making their lives happier” He added: “Maybe what I am trying to say is that you can go without going to the mosque or temple for a day or even go without a meal but you can’t just go without going to the toilet everyday I am saying it in a practical way and not saying it in a frivolous way or like a joke It’s a simple biological fact of life” The Rang De Basanti and Bhaag Milkha Bhaag director is doing his bit by being associated with the Yuva Unstoppable NGO for the cause of building toilets in municipal schools in various parts of India Having grown up in Delhi Rakeysh has been staying in Mumbai since almost three decades now It is the “contrast between the haves and have-nots” in the country’s financial

Mehra took his cameras to Mumbai suburbs Amrut Nagar and Passpoli to capture the true-to-life scenes and locations where people defecate in the open “When you take a flight to Mumbai your plane feels like it will land on slums and suddenly there’s a runway When I shifted to Mumbai around 30 years ago there was one slum called Dharavi… the biggest in Asia and all of that And now when I look around there are a hundred Dharavis around us There are more slums than buildings So I always wondered what’s life like there” In the quest to find that he realised that “against all odds there’s an immense celebration there Despite all the problems people don’t give up hope That hope inspired me to get into this film… I wanted to tell a story of inspiration” For all the latest Entertainment News
