DLF-HULIMAVU-BEGUR-BANGALORE SOUTH – ROCKS THE ASSEMBLY – SPEAKER REFUSES PERMISSION FOR THE DISCUSSION


The opposition parties demanded a discussion on the alleged illegalities and encroachment by DLF in Bangalore South and sent a request to the Speaker, which was rejected and the opposition raised the issue in the legislative assembly and was promised that their submission will be looked into.

Rainy Season and the problems of low lying areas and illegal layouts-Water Pollution and Noise Pollution


Even before the onset of Monsoon, Bangalore received a good spell of rains, but the BBMP as usual was not prepared and the citizens suffered.

But, as a responsible citizen, cannot blame the system or the BBMP alone.

Illegal construction, blockage of drains, construction in the low lying areas are the main reasons for the flooding.

The revenue sites and the Converted layouts have blocked the normal flow of water in the canals, by forming illegal and unauthorised layouts and blaming the administration for their own mistake.

Water borne diseases are on the rise and the ground water is contaminated beyond repair.

All these illegal layouts discharge highly toxic sewage into the valleys or raja kaluve or in the soakpit, thus the lakes became poisonous and the ground water is highly contaminated as untreated sewage is let into the ground.  Later, the same people, drill borewell and use the contaminated water, resulting in skin and respiratory disorders.

All the social media abuzz with the dangers of water, air and noise pollution.  All these talks only on the internet and nothing useful has come out of it, till date.

Noise pollution is affecting the children, much more than the elders.  Everyday, the vehicles emit poisonous gases and ALTERED (ILLEGAL) SILENCERS AND THE SHRILL HORNS, POSE MAJOR RISK TO THE HEARING PROBLEMS.

The Police, the kspcb and the RTO have turned blind eye towards these illegal alterations and noise pollution.  The normal parameter set by the CPCB is 75db in the residential areas, whereas the vehicles, spew venom and with their shrill horns and silencers, make life miserable with 100db to 200db sound, which will make any normal human being DEAF, very soon.

JOB CUTS IN IT SECTOR AND NRN`s MOST INVALUABLE SUGGESTION AND ADVICE TO SENIORS- A NEWS REPORT


As layoffs in the IT sector make international headlines, tech titan NR Narayana Murthy said that jobs of junior executives can be protected if bosses take pay cuts.

“I have a feeling that it is possible for us to protect the jobs of youngsters if the senior management people were to make some minor adjustments – adjustment of taking salary cuts,” the co-founder of Infosys said to news channel ET Now.

“Let me give you example of Infosys itself. When the market became very tough and it shrank actually in 2001, we all sat together with senior management and then we said – look let us make some sacrifice and ensure that we protect the jobs of youngsters,” Mr Murthy said.

In recent months, Mr Murthy and other founders of India’s second-largest software exporter have clashed with the board over pay hikes of as much as 60-70 per cent for top bosses and severance packages for others, describing them as “grossly unfair to the majority of the Infosys employees.”

IT outsourcing has long been one of India’s flagship industries but experts say automation, a failure to keep up with new technologies and US President Donald Trump’s clampdown on visas is creating industry-wide upheaval.

The biggest IT firms are gradually laying off thousands of staff while research has claimed that hundreds of thousands of jobs could disappear in the next four years, although the companies themselves have refused to comment on numbers.

The industry employs nearly four million Indians and rakes in revenues of more than $150 billion, according to the trade body National Association of Software and Services Companies (Nasscom).

Mr Murthy said the industry has survived major setbacks in the past and gloomy forecasts are not valid. “Let us remember we have gone through this several times in the past. We went through that in 2008, in 2001. So, this is nothing new. Therefore, there is no need for us to become extremely anxious. We have had solutions to such problems in the past,” he said.
While Nasscom is bullish about the future for India’s tech titans, HfS Research, a US-based business advisory firm, estimates automation could mean a 14 percent decline in India’s IT workforce with 480,000 jobs at risk by 2021.

That’s a worrying prospect for the hundreds of thousands of aspiring engineers at India’s IT colleges. Nasscom this month dismissed widespread reports of thousands of layoffs but conceded that the rate of hiring was slowing.

India’s top IT companies have been complaining for a while about the difficulty of picking up new clients as businesses explore automation, robotics and innovative technologies such as cloud computing. Amid reports of layoffs, companies like Wipro and Cognizant have said that under-performance is the sole reason for workers being asked to leave.

Although layoffs are not uncommon in the industry, particularly in the final quarter of the financial year, union chiefs say staff are being made redundant in unprecedented numbers this year as firms deal with narrowing profits.

“Companies are unwilling to talk about the layoffs or how many techies have been served notice to leave as part of their annual appraisal,” said JSR Prasad, chairman of the National Confederation of Unions of IT Employees.

Retraining and upskilling programmes have been described as the urgent need of the hour. Mr Murthy said industry leaders should identify new areas of opportunity and train new recruits and ask them to ensure they are in a position to add value to the company in next one year, and if they failed they could look out for another job.

“It is not fair to simply send somebody home, and then let them become very very anxious, because they may have families depending on them,” he said.
