2016 5:28 am Several strikes in the last two years by civic bodies led to pile-up of garbage across the capital Archive Top News DESPITE BEING strapped for cash the three civic bodies in the national capital have announced a slew of measures including a property amnesty scheme for 95 per cent of Delhi’s population With projected budget deficits for the East corporation to the tune of Rs 2000 crore and Rs 2700 crore in the North taxpayers were given rebate on payment of full arrears and a waiver on penalty and interest amounts with a eye on the municipal polls early in 2017 The last two years witnessed strikes across municipal corporation departments after salaries and pensions were delayed which led to conflict between the civic bodies and the state government for several months After several austerity measures and two bailouts from the state government the corporations were able to pay salaries on time and resume basic functions In February this year heaps of garbage remained uncollected across most colonies in Delhi after a 13-day strike by sanitation workers over non-payment of salaries Owing to the lack of funds this year was marred by strikes and most developmental work were put on hold In the recent revised budget estimates no new developmental projects has been announced by the North and the East corporations and emphasis has been laid on completion of those already in motion With expenditure outweighing income the corporations are still struggling to come back on track But calling it a “landmark” scheme the corporations provided substantial relief to those property taxpayers who have not cleared their dues on this account Taxpayers were given rebate on payment of full arrears and a waiver on penalty and interest amounts The waiver extends to all categories of properties whether they are residential commercial or government buildings The 100 per cent waiver will extend to all taxpayers till February 28 and post that rebate on interest will be halved by 50 per cent and no penalties will be charged However with the elections to the municipal bodies slated for early next year both the BJP and the Congress passed and supported the move respectively albeit for different reasons Ashish Sood General Secretary of the Delhi BJP said that the amnesty on tax was a long-standing political demand and before fighting the election it is important to give people some benefits “This helps the corporation because the time and effort we spend in legal tangles with defaulters against whom hundreds of crores in tax and penalty are pending we can resolve them with a single move” He added that it was important that the scheme was launched by all three corporations together to ensure uniformity across the capital The Congress however supported the move since they did not want to be seen opposing a people-friendly move “The scheme is in public interest We would be seen as villains if we opposed this move Yes there would be some loss to the corporation which is already financially weak but we could not have opposed it” Leader of the Opposition in the North Corporation Mukesh Goel said Meanwhile the executive wing of the corporations which had been building pressure on defaulters to pay up dues as the end of the financial year approached said the announcement of the amnesty scheme during a period of increased cash flow deflated those efforts Some officials however say that giving amnesty to defaulters hurt not just the corporations but also the honest taxpayers “Only about 40 per cent of the population pays tax Instead of incentivising those who do pay tax the scheme incentivises those who do not Also when people are paying by the crores providing amnesty means skimming off a chunk of money that is readily coming in as it helps people dispose off cash that does not hold value elsewhere in the market” a senior official said For all the latest Delhi News download Indian Express App More Top NewsWritten by Sriram Veera | Indore | Updated: October 12 2016 11:33 am Pujara’s 101 not out was his first century after 9 Tests His scores in this series read 62 78 87 4 41 and 101* (Source: Reuters) Top News The phase in the second innings of the Indore Test where Cheteshwar Pujara moved breezily from fifty to hundred is being feted by the critics on air and in the social media as some turnaround moment It isn’t The first fifty where he looked so reassured was the real deal It was what made Pujara valuable in the first place for India and it’s what going to make him relevant and viable in the future There were (and are) other valid reasons to be concerned about Pujara – the troubles against the incoming deliveries the sudden losses in concentration after he gets the startsthe almost tame push of the bat in defense during those lack-of-focus phases – loose iffy and without conviction which widens the bat-pad-gap and of course his inconsistent performances overseas It has taken 14 months for Pujara to score his eighth hundred You could even blame the unfair hype on him as a technically-perfect player He isn’t Not many batsmen are It was an unfair tag that was later used to whip him The worst though was the fuss about his strike rate For some reason it had suddenly became the focal point as if this Indian team needed a marauding Pujara As if they didn’t have the likes of Virat Kohli Ajinkya Rahane and Rohit Sharma for that As if India’s Test fortunes hinged on Pujara scoring a violent hundred As if it was all or bust otherwise It was all quite silly If anything the need to score quickly was probably one of his problems not the solution His strike rate shouldn’t have been a concern — after all he made his name in international cricket with a sparklingly counter-attacking knock against Australia on his debut And in the subsequent knocks he had shown that he knows how to pace his innings well It’s the inconsistency that should have worried them However the hand-wringing over his strike-rate meant he arrived into this series with some understandable concern By his own admission he was a touch worried It’s here that Anil Kumble India’s new coach stepped in with some common sense It’s learnt that Kumble had a special one-on-one session with Pujara where frank words were exchanged Kumble cleared the inner doubts and told Pujara in as many words that the pressure (of strike rate) shouldn’t have been created in the first place He was told that he is doing what the team needs and that runs would come soon Soon Kumble even went public on the strike-rate issue making it clear to one and all within the team and outside to stop pressuring Pujara on a non-issue Pujara was lucky to have Kumble step in the way he did Doubts cleared he returned to doing what he does best Be solid Set up a base Tire out the pacers And he is a very fine attacking batsman against spin his footwork against the tweakers has impressed the likes of Ian Chappell someone who isn’t prone to giving false praises If Pujara can do the hard work for the middle order to express themselves and kept one end plugged he would have done his job It helped that he got some first-class cricket in between the West Indies series and the home season Since his return from the Caribbean Pujara scored 826 first-class runs at an average of 137 with three centuries and three fifties in five games including two in Duleep Trophy It wasn’t a surprise then that he has finished this New Zealand series as the top-scorer with 373 runs with one hundred and three half centuries In Kolkata Indian were 3 down for 46 before Pujara revived them with a half century In Indore India had lost openers Murali Vijay and Gautam Gambhir in first hour but Pujara remained firm His 41 might not have been crowd-pleasing act but by seeing through the first session he gave Kohli and Rahane the foundation and freedom to carry on for a big score On Tuesday in the second innings Pujara took his time and when the time came for acceleration he shifted gears almost effortlessly Pre-series criticism The pre-series criticism must have been tough on him Just put yourself in his shoes for a moment He grew up with his cricket-obsessed father Arvind as his coach Strike rates were never discussed in that household Talks revolved around on how solid he can make his technique that would help him spend hours in the middle He is almost from an older era in that sense To his credit this wasn’t the first time his batting mode has come under discussion When he was piling up the runs in domestic cricket and still couldn’t get into the Indian team such talk has come up And he worked hard on it added more zing to his batting widened his repertoire worked on his mindset and not only continued to get the big runs but also got them at a good rate Times have changed of course and the definition of “good rate” has also changed Sometimes self-expression is also viewed lopsidedly in the cricketing quarters The current hot term is “express yourself” It was also seen in the way Kohli framed his praise of Pujara “We told batsmen to express themselves If you see Pujara hitting a fast bowler back part his head that’s expression” It’s easy to understand what the Indian captain meant and as a No 3 batsman one needs to know how to alter the tempo of batting The recent sweating over Pujara however also raises another thought: Expressing oneself doesn’t always mean smashing the bowlers For someone like Pujara it could be getting in line keeping the head still maintaining the balance and offering the perfect dead bat That’s also expressing oneself On Tuesday his first fifty came in 96 balls and the next 50 took just 51 balls It was the work and confidence gained in those 96 balls that did the trick for the acceleration that followed And er 50 in 96 balls isn’t slow Even in this era As things stand the way the home Tests are finishing in under four days it wouldn’t hurt India if it’s No 3 batsman takes 100 balls to score 50 And when they eventually start touring again where India also occasionally fold up in four days 50 in 100 balls would be priceless For all the latest Sports News download
