Educational bodies top tax defaulters
Tuesday, October 06, 2015
Vijayawada: Educational institutions including schools, colleges and charity trusts, churches and others are among the top property tax defaulters. Polytechnic College, a government organisation, allegedly is the top defaulter among educational institutions with a due of Rs 1.75 crore for the last 28 years. The college has a due of RS 1.91 crore in the form of interest to the actual amount payable.
Similarly, other government educational institutions like Industrial Training Institute, Basic Training Centre are due to pay more than half a crore to the local body. However, as per the section 85 of AP Municipal Act, building used by philanthropic institutions need not pay the property tax and education institutions which are run by charitable organisations are also included in it.
However, only schools are included so far and government aided colleges that provide education on no profit basis are still forced to pay property tax. “We are still paying property tax. Decades ago all government-aided institutions including schools and colleges are exempted from paying property tax. Later it was confined to schools only. We charge only Rs 2000 per student per year and are facing lack of property faculty,” said secretary of Syed Appalswamy College Mr Jayaprakash Rampillai.
Mr Jayaprakasah further said that representatives of education institutions would meet chief minister on October 8 and demand for removal of property tax. While institutions like rehabilitation, orphans, streetchildren, religious places and public grounds are also exempted from property tax; properties owned by religious institutions have to pay the tax.
APSRTC too owes Rs 2 crore:
Several state and central government organisations have topped the list of tax defaulters with the pending amount exceeding Rs 20 crore in form of vacant land tax (VLT) and commercial taxes. Also, private organisations, associations, educational institutions have found entry in the list of tax defaulters, according to the data uploaded on the Vijayawada Municipal Corporation website, ourvmc.org.
The state government’s largest organisation, APSRTC, has approximately Rs 2 crore pending in the form of VLT for its lands at Vidydharapuram. However, the corporation seems to be in no mood to clear the pending taxes at present. Apart from APSRTC, among others Punnami hotels run by AP Tourism, government colleges, post offices, BSNL central office at Chuttugunta and KR Market, road and buildings department in Labbipet, Polytechnic College, were also in the defaulters’ list

Karimnagar: The management of Sri Raja Rajeshwara Degree College has embarked on a novel mission. The institution in association with Telangana state’s department of language and culture has decided to revive Perini Shivatandavam, an ancient dance form of Telangana which once enjoyed a royal status but vanished over a period of time. The 60-year-old institution is organising a first-of-its kind 15-day-long residential camp by roping in vast experienced dance master. A total of 70 students have been undergoing rigorous training from October 1.
Elizabeth Rani of mathematics department at SRRDC and convener of the training camp, said that the residential camp was conceived to bring back the past glory of this region’s dance form and to promote it. Jakka Srikrishna, who carries 33-year long experience in teaching Perini Shivatandavam and his assistants were deployed for training the students. There are 40 girls and 30 boys who are learning the dance form. Dr B. Madhusudan Reddy, principal of institution, stated that the department of language and culture had given its nod and sanctioned Rs 1 lakh for organising the camp after a proposal was sent to it few days back.
“The revival of Perini will help Telangana state to have its own classical dance form. The neighbouring state AP has Kuchipudi.” The teacher, Srikri-shna, said that the Perini originated and prospered during Kakatiya period, around 700 years ago. “However, the dance form vanished over the years. Padmashriawardee Dr Nataraja Ramakrishna tried to revive it a few years back. The dance signifies Raudra rasam (terrible) and is divided into two types, Perini Shivatandavam and Lasyam. Shivatandam is practised by male dancers and girls do the Lasyam. The armed forces of Kakatiya dynasty used to learn this before preparing for a battle,” he added
Osmania University faces shortage of study material
Wednesday, September 30, 2015
Hyderabad: Osmania University’s G. Ram Reddy Center for Distance Education has surplus funds, an unlikely thing in OU but still its affairs are in poor state. The center is staring at a huge shortage of study material which has to be supplied to around 10,000 students.
Every year as soon as students take admission they are given study material by the university. This year as admissions have started for various courses offered by the center officials are worried that they might not be able to provide study material to all of them.
The center has only a limited number of books. However, this is not enough to provide books to everyone. To print new books there are specific procedures like inviting tenders for printing which needs the attention of the VC, which none of the university’s entities have been fortunate to get from the in-charge VC.
Moreover, the distance education center has not changed the number and variety of courses it offers. It offers 20 under graduation, PG and diploma courses which have stayed the same since three decades.
While the central and state governments have been talking a lot about skill development the center for distance education in OU does not offer a single course on it.
There are no bachelor courses on offer in the science stream and at the PG level M.Sc is offered only in Mathematics and Statistics.
The situation is so pathetic that even after 38 years of its establishment the center has been able to open just 10 centers in the state, that too in just five districts, Nizamabad, Medak, Ranga Reddy, Mahbubnagar and Nalgonda.
These centers serve as contact points for students from districts with the university and also as exam centers.
Women show big interest
Women who are not privileged enough to go for regular education are increasingly taking to distance education, as is evident from the intakes at OU’s Center for Distance Education.
The center has about 50,000 students pursuing various courses, of which over 50 per cent are women. This year, among all the courses on offer MBA saw the largest jump in interest from students.
Apart from MBA, MA in English and Telugu and M.Com are the other most sought after courses in distance mode
IIT-Madras student satellite to be ready by April

Chennai: The Indian Institute of Technology Madras (IIT-M) student satellite project, an exploratory mission which was conceived six years back by a group of students and touted for having potential to predict earthquakes, has reached its final stage of completion.
A nano-satellite weighing just 12 kg will be ready for launch in April next year. Currently, the satellite is being integrated at the IIT-M campus after which it will be evaluated by Isro scientists.
Called as IITMSAT, the satellite will be placed in orbit around the Earth at a height of around 700km and designed to measure the proton and electron bursts in the upper ionosphere or magnetosphere throughout its mission life of one year and in the process study occurrence of solar flares, lighting storms and earthquakes.
The project is estimated to cost `3 crore, most of which is funded by the alumni. Harichandran Ramachandran, Electrical Engineering, IIT-M, who gave a presentation about the project to Nasa delegates on Monday, said chances of predicting earthquakes would be an over statement at this juncture, but what we are trying right now is to see electron and proton bursts and study the seismic events and see whether there is any correlation.
To a query, Ramachandran said the whole deliberation about predicting earthquakes is based on a hypothesis that prior to an earthquake there are some re-adjustments that happen 40-50 km beneath the surface and discharge low frequency pulses that can couple in the upper ionosphere. "It's just a theory as of now".
Akshay Gulati, a key member of Team IITMSAT, said predicting earthquakes was not the goal. "We want to provide information for the scientific community. First, our mission is to measure the fluctuations in charges particle fluxes precipitated from the radiation belts to Low Earth Orbit (LEO). Understanding these phenomena may aid in the development of a global earthquake warning system in the future". Earlier studies done by a few exploratory missions indicated that a satellite in low-earth orbit can detect the particle bursts and correlate to the location of epicentre of the impending earthquake
Colleges told to equip laboratories
Thursday, September 24, 2015
Hyderabad High Court
Hyderabad: The Hyderabad High Court on Wednesday ordered the managements of private engineering colleges to procure within six weeks, equipment, machinery and other materials which are deficient in their laboratories as pointed out by the inspection teams from the All India Council for Technical Education and the Jawaharlal Nehru Technological University of Hyderabad.
A division bench comprising acting Chief Justice Dilip B. Bhosale and Justice S.V. Bhatt was granting the interim order while dealing with a batch of petitions and appeals with regard to the affiliation row between the managements and the awaharlal Nehru Technological University. The bench gave the managements three months to appoint faculty having Ph.Ds. The bench said after three months the government will constitute teams, including a member of the High Court, to conduct inspections afresh and the court will pass appropriate orders after perusing the fresh reports.
The bench made it clear that if it found that any of the colleges had failed to comply with the norms, the court would pass orders either for closure of the institution or cancellation of the course concerned. The bench said these interim orders would be applicable to colleges that have approached the court after rejection of affiliation by the JNTU despite approval from the AICTE.
The bench ordered the managements of tech colleges to file an affidavit assuring the court that they will rectify the deficiencies pointed out by the inspection teams.
The bench adjourned the case to November 4.
Respond to ACB plea, Revanth told:
Justice Raja Elango of the Hyderabad High Court on Wednesday issued a notice to TD MLA Revanth Reddy, the prime accused in the cash-for-vote scam, seeking his stance on a plea by the TS ACB, seeking cancellation of his bail.
Mr Ravi Kiran Rao, special public prosecutor of ACB, brought to the notice of the court that the accused had violated his bail conditions. He said that the court, while relaxing the bail conditions of Mr Reddy, had ordered that that he should not interfere with the investigation and would not make any remarks in connection with the case.
He pointed out that Mr Reddy had attended a TD workers’ meeting on September 9 in a function hall in LB Nagar where he had made certain remarks which would not only deter the witnesses in the case but also lead to intimidation of the witnesses. While issuing the notice to the TD MLA, the judge asked the counsel of the MLA to properly advise the accused to honour his bail conditions and adjourned the hearing.
