Bonded Labourers of Western Odisha are yet to get Rehabilitation Assistance.By SudhirMishra/Bolangir(India)
Bonded Labourers of Western Odisha are yet to get Rehabilitation Assistance.
Bolangir; Even though the rehabilitation of laboueres ,especially the Bonded Labour release with Bonded labour release certificate years ago, should receive top priority ,however thanks to apathy of officials, they are yet to get their “rehabilitation assistance” ,much to the chagrin of many.
As per the BondedLabour Systems (Abolitions)Act of 1976, a labourer released as Bonded labourer, is entitled to get assistance of rupees 20,000/. While rupees one1000 is given on the spot and the rest19000rupess is given to them at the home state.
The total amount of release assistance is shared by both the State and Central Government on 50;50basis;whiletheCenter gives rupees 10,000/ the state Government gives other 10000 rupees.
Most of the Bondeed labourers hails from the ten backward and migrant ion prone districts of western Odisha.
We don’t have Bonded labourer in our district. We get them as Bonded Labourer with the release certificate after they are rescued from outside State .So far 146Bonded labourers of Nuapada district are yet to receive their rehabilitation assistance. We have sent their proposal to Panchyat Raj Department, which has been pending there since last one and half years says a DRDA official of Nuapdaa.
In Bolangir district officially 94 proposals of Bonded labourers, which includes 38male, 32 female and 24 children’s are yet to receive their rehabilitation assistance is pending with panchyatiRaj Department .
In Kalhandi district 54Bondedlabouers are yet to receive their assistance, says DilipDas ofKalhandi .
Besides Bolangir,Kalhandi,Nuapada, in Bargarh district ,unofficially the number of Bonded labourers yet to receive their rehabilitation assistance stands at 104.
(The rehabilitation assistance money of Bonded labour of Bolangir district was lying with Panchyatri Raj department was for more than two years and after it was published in The Pioneer and it was put before the National Human RightsCommission(NHRC) three day camp court held at Bhubneshwaron 10-12Novermber2014,,the NHRC issued notice to Bolngir collector to give money them first and a total of 251 Bonded labourers were given rehabilitation assistance in two phase .
By giving rupees 19,000/- the district administration believe that its responsibility is over .Where as the Bonded labourer should be rehabilitated with a comprehensive planning and by providing linkages with all the social security schemes, Job work, land development and other programme so that these labourers would live a decent living and would not migrate again. In Bargarh district the district administration initiated steps to provide land to less bonded labourer, opines aNGO activist.
Moreover the Bonded labourers should receive priority in getting Indira Awaaas Yojana as mentioned in the guideline which hardly followed properly opines an NGO activist.
There seem to be gap between officials and people representatives of this region on this issue .
“I was not appraised about the Bonded labour assistance of 146 Bonded labourers pending at Bhubneshwar since last one and half year .I would look into this issue” says BasantPanda MLA Nuapada to this correspondent.
Apparently taking a cue from Bolangir bonded labourgetting assistance last year and peeved at the apathy of officials towards santctioning of Rehabilitation assistance money peopleof Nuapada are contemplating to move toNHRC to address the issue .
“We are going to submit a petition to NHRC about Bonded laboureers of Nuapada district not getting their rehabilitation assistance money since last one and half year ,says Fanindam Deo of Nuapadadistrict to this correspondent..

BALANGIR DHH REPORTS 62 BURN CASES ON DIWALI
Friday, 13 November 2015 | SUDHIR MISHRA | BALANGIR | in Bhubaneswar
Diwali, the festival of light, was observed with pomp and gaiety across India and even in abroad on November 11 last. On the day, crackers were burst, besides lightening of the lamps. As the crackers burst, people rejoiced. At times the exploding crackers produced high-decibel sounds they were seen shutting their ears in a bid to escape their effect.
When a human being is injured, he or she is immediately rushed to a hospital and given treatment. A total of 62 burn injury cases were reported in the evening in Balangir District Headquarters Hospital on Diwali evening. The patients were discharged after their burn treatment.
However, amidst the rejoice the worst affected were the birds and animals. Birds, which are the most silent and beautiful creatures of nature, maintain ecological balance by eating harmful pests and are most effective players in regeneration of plants and forests in natural ways. However, there were few takers for their safety as they suffered the worst due to high explosion and noise, besides smoke and atmospheric pollution.
Every time a cracker is burst they (birds) tried to fly away from their nests. Already a large number of birds are becoming extinct from due to ecological imbalance, loss of habitat, rising temperature and radiation from cell phone towers.
The harmful sound effect on night of Diwali due to bursting of crackers, needless to say, was excess and never calculated by anybody and nor steps taken to protect them. Who will take care of the silent sufferers? Will the Supreme Court of India take suo mutto cognisance?

Bolangir ;Dipawali the festival of light was observed with pomp and gaiety across the India and even in abroad on 11th November2015(Wednesday). On this day crackers were burst besides lightening the lamp. As the crackers, burst children/people rejoice and shot their ears to prevent from any effect of noise.
When a human being is inured ,he is immediately rushed to a hospital given treatment. A total of 62 burn injuries were reported in the evening at Bolangir District headquarter hospital on Dipawali evening who were discharged after their burn treatment
However, amidst this rejoice, the worst affected in this activity are the birds. Birds who are one of the most silent and beautiful creature of nature, maintains ecological balance eating harmful pest, and one of the most effective player in regeneration of plant, forest in natural ways are the worst sufferer of the noise and atmospheric pollution.
Every time a cracker is burst they(birds) try to flew away from their nest to escape from the effect I do not know how much birds were affected and to what extentin this process onDipawali day.
Already a large number of birds are becoming extinct from our society due to ecological imbalance, loss of habitat, rising temperature and radiation from cell phone tower .
I tried to capture some moments of birds trying to escape from the effect of sound by flowing away from, my mobile in a busy location.( some sound disturbance is coming from behind) on Dipawali evening( around4.45pm).The harmful sound effect on night ofDipawali dueto bursting of crackers, needless to say “ is excess and never calculated by anybody and nor steps are to prevent them .
It would be pertinent to mention that, a bird rises in the early morning searches for food and returns to her nest at the sun goes down in the west(Sunset) and she takes rest till the next morning.
We(the Individual ) has every right to take part in any activity and enjoy but i think do not think human being has right to affect the life of birds
As the crackers burst children rejoice and we shot our ears to prevent from any effect of noise .But who will protect the birds from Injuries, damages caused by sound pollution ; Who will take care of these birds suffering from sound pollution on Dipawali evening and night. =============================================

Coach indicators and an electronic display board on train timings would be installed at the Balangir railway station by January 2016.
Sambalpur DRM DK Singh, who visited the railway station on Saturday, said this while responding to a query of our correspondent. Notably, the Railways have already sanctioned for installation of coach indicators and a train display board here.
The entire station was cleaned up ahead of his visit.
A delegation of BJP Yuva Morcha activists led by Dinesh Sharma submitted a memorandum to the DRM demanding installation of these systems and other facilities at the railway station.
The DRM went around the station and asked the officials to take steps to keep chairs at proper places and ensure lighting and water supply facilities at the station.
It would be pertinent to mention that due to absence of coach indicators, commuters are getting confused during night hours to find out coaches within stipulated times.
This problem was first highlighted in The Pioneer and subsequently the systems were sanctioned by the Railways.
The authorities had also promised to install four CCTV cameras at the railway station.
Before the Railway Budget, Balangir MP Kalikesh Narayan Singh Deo had also raised these demands.

B’NGIR AS ‘TOTAL DROUGHT-HIT’ DISTRICT DEMANDED
Wednesday, 04 November 2015 | PNS | BALANGIR | in Bhubaneswar
Members of the Ang irrigation project committee led by Akash Mishra, former MP Balgopal Mishra and many other farmer leaders of Agalpur, Loisingha on Tuesday marched in the town demanding declaration of Balangir district as “total drought-hit”.
Earlier, the Ang irrigation project committee members had demanded that unless the Government declares the district as drought area, it would
gherao the district Collectorate. Farmers also declared to stage a hunger strike.
Criticising the Naveen Patnaik Government for its anti-farmer policy, Bolagopal Mishra said the district should be declared as drought-affected.
The agricultural loan given to farmers should be waived totally. In India, if the industry sector can be given subsidy of around `3 lakh crore, why the farmers’ loan cannot be waived, Mishra asked. Farmers should be given remunerative price for their crops, Misha added.
Kosal Dal leader Pramod Mishra, Gopalji Panigrahi, Basu Pati and many other leaders of different organisations of the district were also present. They submitted a memorandum to the district administration.
