RBI moves to curb black money

RBI moves to curb black money:

The Reserve bank of India has  decided to withdraw from circulation all currency notes issued prior to 2005.“From April 1, the public will be required to approach banks for exchanging these notes. Banks will provide exchange facility for these notes until further communication,’’ the RBI said on Wednesday, clarifying that notes issued before 2005 would continue to be legal tender.
“The public can easily identify the notes to be withdrawn as the notes issued before 2005 do not have on them the year of printing on the reverse side,’’ the RBI said.

From July 1, however, those wanting to exchange more than 10 pieces of 500 and 1000 rupee notes in a bank where they do not have an account will have to provide proof of residence and identity. The RBI’s move will have the effect of flushing out black money, according to bankers.

The move will have very good impact on many issues like

1 ) As per RBI the notes printed after 2005 has additional technical features which can control fake currency circulation.

2 ) The move will have effect on black money holders, since they have to submit their notes in banks with valid authentication.

3 ) Since the election is very near, and the black money will have a very huge effect in the elections in India, The move from RBI will have very positive effect on election also.

4 )  The move helps RBI to calculate the money circulation in the country, in-turn to calculate the inflation.

5 ) The move may help out to flush out the fake notes in the circulation.

Having all these positive points, we hope the process gives better for the country economy.

Please post your views in regards this view ..

Cancellation of 2011 notification..

Cancellation of 2011 notification, almost there ?

The notification for 352 posts of gazetted probationers is almost at the door step of cancellation. According to news published on 22nd and 23rd of Jan 2014 in Prajavani Kannada daily news paper.
According to the news the administrative reform committee has suggested Government to cancel the notification of 2011 batch and recommended for fresh notification including the new openings in Karnataka.
According to committee there is no meaning in going ahead with the current list since the irregularities have been proved in CID report. Now the report is with Chief minister Siddaramaiah, he may take the call very soon may be after consulting with his cabinet colleagues.

  This news may  turn good for some students and bad for some more. But ultimate truth is we are changing the way things were happening. Hope our system change with the time.

Revaluation has not started yet

The KPSC gazetted probationary (KAS) main exam revaluation news has become older now. There were vague news that the process has started already. In contradictory to that there was a news in Vijayavani which says the process has not started yet and it may take much more time. The other issue would be that when KPSC is going to compete thet process ?

Revaluation with tabulation may take around 4 months of time, so need long relationship with KPSC :)..

KPSC Notification 2013

We have UPSC in the center with well planned schedule every year and we have KPSC in the state with almost no plan.KPSC has not completed process for 2011 Gazetted Probationers batch. KPSC  Gazetted Probationers 2011 batch main papers are yet to be evaluated and personality test and other process are not yet scheduled scheduled. 

Before thinking about next notification there is one more point, The article 371j, with respect to which state Govt. has not completely done with the policy.

 Taking all these points together, we may not be in a situation to expect new notification with the tag "Gazetted Probationers 2013" very soon. But according some source the new notification may come on November or December 2013, with changes in the main exam pattern. The number of post may be bigger than our previous 2011 batch as there is a long gap since 2011 notification. All these are vague statements until KPSC comes with new notification on it's website, which is almost static from last one year.

Lets hope we are going to see new notification with the subject line "Gazetted Probationers 2013"  if it come before December 2013 or we will have to start discussing about new notification with the tag "Gazetted Probationers 2014"  There are so many positive points about new notification, it is coming with new pattern and new process in accordance with UPSC and number of posts may be bigger than previous notification. Lets see how these positive changes change the negative image of KPSC in next coming years.

All the best ...
