GIVE THEM CHANCE

GIVEN an  opportunity, even students belonging to the most deprived classes of the society living in the farthest corner can also excel. This was amply proved when a project of Ms. Jaya Megane, a 12-year-old tribal girl from Shahapur taluka in Thane district, was selected for the National Children’s Science Congress, to be held in Ahmedabad. And her project was also unique- soil-less farm. This is not a sole such example. There are several tribal sportspersons who have represented the country at Olympics and won medals, competing with champions coming from across the globe. This calls for making educational and other facilities available to the students living in all the corners of the country.  Unfortunately, the spread of quality education has remained restricted to big cities only, depriving rural students a level playing field. Because of this, most of the rural students fail to make it big.  The country has a vast pool of talent in villages. However, it remains untapped. Rural students must also be given equal opportunities to excel.

WELCOME INCENTIVE

 

THE Union Government has done well to raise export incentives to labour-intensive industries, especially MSME and services sectors by Rs. 8450 crores. This should meet the demands and concerns of industries in these two critical sectors which contribute substantially to foreign exchange earnings. By offering enhanced incentives the Government has sought to achieve several goals. Leather, agriculture, carpets, handicrafts and marine products are labour-intensive sectors. Hence by offering larger incentives to these sectors the Government is seeking to raise job creation possibilities. Secondly it also will meet the Government’s aim of promoting MSME sector because of their nature of being job-intensive. Thirdly, the Government wants to give fillip to the sagging export sector, which has shown some decline in recent quarters of the current fiscal, thereby raising concerns about the rising Current Account Deficit (CAD). And lastly the Government wants to correct the disruption caused after the introduction of GST regime.
