 Chandigarh, Sept 11--The Haryana Agriculture and Farmers’ Welfare Minister, Mr O.P. Dhankar, has made it clear that the state government is not entering into any fresh dialogue to come to an agreement with the Punjab Government on the state’s share in river waters.
           There will be no digression from our chosen path of securing implementation of the Supreme Court orders regarding construction of the Sutlej Yamuna Link (SYL) Canal in Punjab, and bringing to Haryana its rightful share in river waters, Mr Dhankar said while reacting to the statement of former Chief Minister, Mr Bhupinder Singh Hooda, on the river waters issue published in a daily, today.
                The state government is committed to getting the SYL Canal constructed in Punjab region and getting Haryana’s fair share in river waters, he added.

      After this decision, Punjab's Termination of Agreements Act-2004 is rendered invalid. Now the passage for getting Haryana its just and rightful share in Ravi and Beas waters is clear through the medium of SYL, he added.

Haryana Government plans to launch ‘Haryana 100’, Centralised Police Emergency Management System

Chandigarh, Sept 11—From Independence Day next Year, Haryana will have a common state-level emergency no ‘Haryana 100.’ It will replace similar facilities districts have at present.
         The Haryana Government plans to launch ‘Haryana 100’, Centralised Police Emergency Management System, to quickly arrest the offenders who flee the crime spot, and provide immediate police assistance to the victims. It will be launched by the Chief Minister, Mr Manohar Lal, on August 15, 2018 from Panchkula. 
          This decision was taken at a review meeting of the project presided over by the Chief Minister, here today.
          Currently, the Police Emergency Management System in Haryana is decentralized. Every district has its own call centre, sometimes leading to issues like citizens calling 100 usually finding the line busy, facing rude and un-responsive behaviour of the operator receiving the call, and the police reaching the spot of incidence in 35-40 minutes after the event.
          ‘Haryana 100’ will be headquartered in Panchkula and a separate building is being constructed for it. There will be 100 dedicated Call Centre Operators and 50 dedicated dispatch officers at the headquarters.
       Six hundred specially fabricated four-wheelers would be deployed all over the state to ensure quick action on receiving any complaint. After the launch of this project, the police will ensure that they reach the spot of incident within a maximum of 15-20 minutes.
          In order to fast-track the project, Mr. Venkat Changavalli has been appointed Advisor to the Haryana Government. He was first CEO of Emergency Management and Research Institute (EMRI) for providing ‘Free Medical Emergency Response Services 108’.
          The Chief Minister said he would lay stone of the building of ‘Haryana 100’ on October 15, 2017 in Panchkula. He issued directions to officers to fast-track the project which would improve the working of police and make people have more faith in the force.
          Others present at the meeting included Principal Secretary to Chief Minister, Mr Rajesh Khullar, Additional Principal Secretary, Dr Rakesh Gupta, Additional Chief Secretary, Home, Mr Ram Niwas, Director General of Police, Mr B.S. Sandhu, Additional Director General of Police, Headquarters, Mr Prashant Aggarwal, and senior officers.

 Haryana Government to hold camps from September 18 to 23 at block level to verify the documents of beneficiaries of all social security pensions in the state
 
Chandigarh, Sept 11---The Haryana Government has decided to hold camps from September 18 to 23 at block level to verify the documents of beneficiaries of all social security pensions in the state
       This was disclosed by the Minister of State for Social Justice and Empowerment, Mr Krishan Kumar Bedi, after a meeting with the Chief Minister, Mr Manohar Lal, here today. Principal Secretary to Chief Minister, Mr Rajesh Khullar, and Principal Secretary, Social Justice and Empowerment Department, Mr Ashok Khemka, were also present at the meeting.
           Mr Bedi appealed to eligible beneficiaries to get their documents verified at these camps so that their pension, along with arrears, could be deposited in their accounts at the earliest.
           If any eligible beneficiary is not able to get the documents verified at these camps due to any reason, he could get it done in the next two months at the district headquarters. Also, those beneficiaries who do not have Aadhaar Card could also get these made during that period and submit the documents to the department, Mr Bedi added. 
        It may be recalled that the state government has de-activated direct benefit transfer of pension to 3,21,000 beneficiaries due to their Aadhaar cards not being valid or fake, registered outside the state, and also not linked with pension. After verification of the documents, the amount of pension along with arrears would be credited to the bank accounts of all eligible beneficiaries.
