A Comment on Economic Survey's proposal to tax PPF interest withdrawals

My Comment on an article titled "Tax PPF returns at the time of withdrawal, says Economic Survey" published in the Dated 27/02/2016 at 10:50 pm. 

"Taxing interest earned is an injustice. 

Most people may not be having any other sources of income except these small savings schemes like PPF,Fixed Deposits,Time deposits and NSCs. 

Common man and retired people meet their regular monthly expenses from these incomes only. So, they should not be deprived of their bread by reducing their earnings. 

Government should realise this fact and should not heed to Economic Survey proposals."

A Comment on washing of blankets that are supplied during journey by Railways

Your comment on the article ''You smelt it right, Railways washes blankets every two months'' is now displayed on Dated 27/02/2016 at 2:50 pm.

''Very sorry to know this fact.

I just travelled in AC and was very glad to see that railways supplied bed sheets and blankets to each passenger. I used them very happily by covering myself with the linen blanket to protect myself from cold and did not experience any bad smell at all.

I wish that Railways can afford to wash the linens every week, if not daily or otherwise. The AC class fares charged are already enough to bear the washing expenses. They can offer them to private parties for washing, if they do not have enough washing facilities at their end.

I hope Railways will think over it and care for our health.''

A Comment on Rail Budget 2016

My Comment on an article "Rail Budget 2016: Suresh Prabhu's 11 announcements to make common man happy" published in the Dated 25/02/2016. 

"Very good initiatives announced by our Rail minister, Suresh Prabhu. 

The Antyodaya Express with unreserved coaches can be much friendly for the poor common man, who may not be able to plan his journeys before-hand. Now, he can perform his journey instantly at any time upon his immediate requirements with no worry of accommodation. Deen Dayalu coaches also serve his purpose in the same manner. 

The SMART coaches and introduction of TEJAS,Humsafar and UDAY services are all of much welcome as they provide many useful services in easing the travel with better amenities and entertainment to the passengers. 

No increase in fares is another most glad and welcome step taken by the Railway Minister. 

Suresh Prabhu must be commended for showering all these good favours on us and that too along with so many additional favours at no extra cost. 

This is the greatest Rail Budget ever presented."

A Comment on provision and durability of fly ash houses to poor

My Comment on a news article "Government to provide housing in less than Rs.5 lacs: Nitin Gadkari" published on Dated 10/02/2016 at  10 pm. 

"Happy to know that government is keen in providing housing to poor families at a very low cost of only Rs.5 lakh per house with an area of 450 sq.feet. 

It is a very good proposal, if it really works out. 

What is the durability of fly ash houses, I do not know. Can they bear cyclones, strong winds, floods and extreme heat temperatures? 

You need to confirm all these points by testing the houses and then certify them as safe shelters."

A Comment on introduction of Anti-spitting Bill in Mumbai and Maharashtra

My comment on an article "Maharashtra government to table Anti-spitting bill in Budget session" published in the economic Dated 07/02/2016 at 9.50 pm.

"It is a good idea if works out for ever sincerely. 

Spitting at public places like in the corridors of buildings, on roads and at parking places is a very bad and ugly habit. 

They do not even feel guilty of themselves committing such ugly actions. 

I think it should be implemented not only in Maharashtra but in all other states also like U.P., Bihar, Madhya Pradesh and any other state where it has become a dirty habit."

A Comment on Zika threat being spread in rumors throughout India

Your comment on the article ''With no testing facility, doctors see Zika threat in India; Western Ghats, coasts at risk'' is now displayed on Dated 01/02/2016 at 11:30 am.

''This is one more new name added to the already lengthy list of infections and fevers resulting from the bites of mosquitoes.

Instead of finding remedies for the diseases, the medical professionals are going on adding new names for diseases to frighten the already scary common man.''

A Comment on the acts of demonstrators and agitators causing injury to public

Your comment on the article ''Kapus in Andhra set 6 train bogies, 2 police stations ablaze for quota'' is now displayed on dated 01/02/2016 at 11 am.

''This is one worst habit of people making demonstrations, agitations and strikes. They do not care for humanity.

They indulge in all sorts of violence and destruction. They do not even realise or want to realise that by indulging in such activities, they are harming their own brethren. People get killed or injured in such activities besides loss of huge property.

I think they should find some other means of displaying their anger and resent in a more gentle and peaceful manner.''
