increase in tur acreage in the state prices of the commodity has been volatile Increased arrival has resulted in a slump in prices and the tur has been trading below the minimum support price (MSP) of Rs 5050 in most markets Low prices had in fact led to distress sale as farmers offloaded their stock in fear of further price drop “We have been purchasing the produce at stipulated MSP and the

radio diagnosis at the Postgraduate Institute of Medical Education and Research (PGIMER) here on Wednesday The stay has come as a major setback for the PGI director Dr Jagat Ram who had issued the retirement order Professor Bansal had mentioned in the application challenging the retirement order that the age of superannuation of an assistant professor was 65 years and he had turned 62 on January 15 this year So he was yet to attain the age of retirement as he had been redesignated assistant professor on September 5 2016 The case is now slated to come up for hearing on July 17 Passing the order the tribunal said that if the competent authority “intends to revert the applicant to the post of lecturer and then retire him in that eventuality it was incumbent upon the authority to issue show-cause notice to provide the applicant an opportunity to be heard in order to observe the principals of natural justice” Professor Bansal had stated in the application that he was abruptly retired on May 31 this year by the director who is not the competent authority He also said that he had joined as lecturer (medical technology) on an ad hoc basis and continued to work as such till

the applicant was re-designated as assistant professor (non-medical) in the payscale of assistant professor with orders dated September 5 2016 Once the post of the applicant was redesignated by the

latest Pune News download Indian Express App More Top NewsWritten by Jasjit Singh | Published: February 7 2012 3:29 am Related News The next step for India is to build design and development capacity> The much delayed process of aircraft acquisition and the excruciatingly tough trials to evaluate the six aircraft on offer has finally led to the shortlisting of the French Rafale as the key MMRCA (Medium Multi-Role Combat Aircraft) for the coming years But there are many items on the acquisition chart to be ticked stilland knowing the complex business of the arms marketthe possibilities of unknown roadblocks or at least hiccups may still have to be overcome although the end result may remain unchanged from what today looks like the final choice The process of acquiring the 126 MMRCAoften termed by the media as the mother of all deals (though the India-Russia deal on Sukhois Su-30MKI for over 300 aircraftwith a follow up T-50 fifth generation fighterwould then have to be called the father of all deals)has taken a long time during which ever more combat aircraft have completed their design lifeleading to a continuing drop in the combat force level of the Indian Air Force But this processsystematic and almost scientific even if rather prolongedshould also finally lay the ghost of Bofors that has been the major cause of delays in defence modernisation for the past quarter century to rest Its utility would last only if the principles on which the shortlisting and final contract are signed became a regular procedure even for aircraft designed and produced domestically But this can only happen if the armed forceswho are the most crucial stakeholders in arms acquisitionsbecome an integrated part of the process from the design to the end state The selection of the Rafale as the IAFs next MMRCA still has quite a distance to goalthough professionally it proves that the IAFs expectations of acquiring more of the Mirage 2000since the end of 2000was professionally sound At another levelthough this factor did not play a part in the current procedureFrance has been a reliable partner in Indias quest for self-reliance in combat aircraft except that previous attempts to manufacture them in India had not borne fruit The first lesson in diversifying sources of arms was learnt when India mobilised and deployed its armed forces on the border in early 1951 in response to Pakistans threat of war And the aircraft selected was the Dassaults Ouragon in preference to the British Meteor US arms aid to Pakistan after 1954 led to an expansion of the IAF and the first fighter selected was the Dassaults Mystere IVAthe most heavily armed combat aircraft that the IAF has had till the Su-30MKI joined the fleet Unfortunatelythis process did not lead to licence manufacture even after the Mirage 2000-H was acquired in early 1980s; andmeanwhilethe French preferred to sell the Mirage III and V to Pakistan Dassault acquired great experience with delta-wing fighters and this now showed up in the Rafale There is still a long process ahead in negotiating the terms of the contract where offsets no doubt will constitute a key factor It would be a gross error to think of the offsets only in terms of the financial element in that 50 per cent of the cost would have to be ploughed back into Indian industry and economy We need to understand that the reason we are buying the MMRCA is that we were not able to design and develop it in spite of having manufactured and overhauled thousands of aircraft and engines in our aircraft industry which has grown into a colossus over the past 72 years The offsets process must be seen as a lever to acquire greater capability in design and development of aircraft and its systems After allthe Rafale has already been designed and over 160 aircraft have been manufactured and are in service with the French Air Forcesome of which were employed in the strikes over Libya But it is obvious that with a life of nearly three to four decades (in actual service)the Rafale will require upgrades in technological terms to a large number of its systems and sub-systems like radarECM systemsetc in another 10-15 years from now The research and development of such upgrades (and the prioritisation of such steps) must be planned now in conjunction with Dassault and other manufacturers of such systems The crux of the matter is that such upgrades must be developed and applied in India by the OEM (original equipment manufacturer) in partnership with Indian entitiespreferably in the private sectorwhich would also help raise the technological and design capabilities in aviation and other sectors and in turn energise Indian industry and economy In the first casesuch an approach may require 70:30 partnerships led by the OEMwhich should lead to Indian companies taking on 70 per cent share by the time the aircraft gets ready for the next major upgrades 10-15 years later These joint ventures would form the base for design and development of systems and components for military and civil aviation in India for the future The government must avoid the temptation of accepting offsets in the shape of already designed systems like mission simulatoras has been done in the case of Lockheed C-130 Super Hercules; or that of seeking to do everything in and through HAL Building design and development capacity and capability in a whole range of weapons connected systems and components/ spares is the route that will make any mother of deals productive and cost-effective in the decades ahead The writera
