and Research (PGIMER) issued a notification inviting applications for the post of a new director the north India’s premier medical hub continues to remain without a regular director The selection process this time is mired in controversy and several questions have been raised over the manner in which the shortlisting was conducted by the union health ministry The PGI’s faculty association meanwhile on Saturday said that they have decided to take up the delay in the appointment with the union health ministry Watch What Else Is Making News: The Institute is currently headed by Dean of the Institute Dr Subhash Verma who was made the officiating director for the six months by the health ministry The six-month tenure of Verma would end on April 6 In March last year the PGIMER authority had issued a circular seeking applications for the top post Subsequently a search and selection committee headed by Union Health Secretary CK Mishra formed by the Union Health Minister JP Nadda recommended a panel of three PGI doctors comprising Dr Anil Bhansali head of Department of EndocrinologyDr Meenu Singh who is from the Department of Pediatrics and Dr Jagat Ram head Advance Eye Centre The shortlisted panel however triggered resentment among the PGI faculty which termed the selection “unfair” The final call about the selection process has to be done by the Cabinet’s Appointments Committee National Commission of SC and ST also recommended to health ministry that a panel of doctors shortlisted by a search committee “may be reviewed”The SC/ST body of PGI went to the SC Commission alleging discrimination in the selection process The delay in the selection process is now being questioned by senior PGI professors who say the prolonged delay would affect the proper functioning of the Institute “The new director should have been announced much before the tenure of the previous director ends The health ministry’s approach towards this prestigious Institute is very shocking” said a senior PGI professor “The officiating director would not try to take any policy decision as he knows that he is there for a temporary period” Another PGI faculty member who was in the race for director’s post told Chandigarh Newsline “After so much of criticism the government should take a decision quickly about the selection” PGI faculty association head Dr TD Yadav told Chandigarh Newsline that the association would soon take up the issue with the health ministry “We will soon write a letter to the health ministry that regular director should be appointed soon for the smooth functioning of the PGI” he said While the Union Health Secretary CK Mishra was unavailable for comments health ministry sources said that “they are expecting some development about the issue very soon” Asked the reason about the delay a health ministry official said “The delay in the selection happened because the case reached the SC and ST Commission which also added to the delay”

More Top NewsWritten by Subhomoy Bhattacharjee | Published: April 22 2013 1:06 am Related News In a denouement of sorts this weekthe Union Cabinet will end the plan for price pooling mechanism for coal which was a sort of throwback to Soviet style pan-national distribution mechanismyet was being rehashed as a reform for the sector The importerCoal India (CIL) did not want anything to do with it; its key shareholders like The Childrens Investment Fund wanted less of it States with coal reserves did not want it and the buyers including NTPC (on record) and private power generation companies (off the record) did not want it The only reason it still was being knocked around is for two reasons There is no way as of now that coal mining can be de-nationalised So CIL has to be the only supplier But as per the governments own projection it cannot supply more than what it currently supplies to power plantstill 2015 Meanwhile new generation capacity is coming upso by 2014-15 the coal ministry expects domestic coal supply will not be enough to meet even 65 per cent of the requirement of these plants The power ministry has had to literally ban any fresh capacity creation Pooling is the only option that keeps this absurd situation from imploding The other is the discomfort with raising the price of power supplied to the consumers Pooling of imported coal with the cheaper domestic coal gives an opportunity to bypass the full extent of rise from the consumers of electricity The reason why the mechanism has failed is because each affected party including the states sought to preserve their self interest The replacementwhich will be considered by the Cabinetfinally recognises this self interest and switches to cost plus pricing For public sector projects since this will be passed on to state discomsthis is okay with them For private sector projectsmostly won as competitive bids the problem will be solved by the two ministriespower and coal admitting there is a change in policy and advising the power regulators to accept claims for power hike accordingly Of course coal will still be mined only by CILbut the higher cost of electricity the public will have to pay is the price for keeping up the belief that nationalisation helps In the interest of pricing of natural resources in the countrythis is a better option than pooling It carries lessons for sectors like natural gas toojunking the effort to create a pan India price Such a single price imposes stiff control requirements on the government to keep the system from falling apart and is hardly the face of

pyramid contests the mandals have complained Also with little time left to co-ordinate with sponsors and participants the celebrations that are to be organised on August 15 could be somewhat low-key this time On Monday the Bombay High Court refused to pass any order related to age and height restrictions for formation of human pyramids during the Dahi Handi festival Members of the Dahi Handi Co-ordination Committee claim that the delay has left many mandals without enough time to practise “Many mandals actually waited for the decision before commencing practice A few have started rigorous practise after the order came The effects of this could be seen on the final day of the festival” said Kamlesh Bhoir a member of the Dahi Handi Co-ordination Committee The state government is likely to call a meeting this week to discuss if any limit is to be imposed on the number of tiers in the human pyramids “There should be no competition between the mandals while forming the tiers Each mandal must perform as they have practised Apart from that we have also asked for safety measures to be implemented by each mandal including jackets and helmets for the Govindas” said Bala Padelkar who is also associated with the committee The committee has introduced an insurance of Rs 10 lakh for every mandal and an additional Rs 1 lakh for each mandal to cover medical charges “The delay in the process also did not leave us with enough time to plan our marketing or sponsorship process Many sponsors were dissuaded from funding the teams due to the impact of the Goods and Services Tax (GST) on their companies The dip in business due to GST further led to sponsors drifting away This has forced many organisers to put in their own money to fund the requirements of Govindas including t-shirts and other logistics” Bhoir added Bhoir believes that it may also impact the number of participating mandals From an average of 900 mandals in the festival only 700 are expected participate

farmers’ organisations and opposition parties are sceptical about the extent of the waiver that the government has planned and demand that loans taken by farmers from private money lenders should also be waived along with loans taken from lending institutions The core group constituted to assess farm debt headed by Dr T Haque has found that of a total debt of Rs 74000 crore owed by Punjab farmers only Rs 9000 crore was lent by cooperative banks Rs 12000 crore by nationalised banks and the rest by private banks and moneylenders As the government prepares to help small and marginal farmers it is not likely to pay off loans by private banks “Uttar Pradesh has announced the loan waiver Maharashtra has also done it Punjab should also follow the path taken by these other states Amarinder Singh

who committed suicide due to loans and economic hardships a government job each for a family member of such farmers and totally waiving loans of such farmers with immediate effect “The farmers have
