It's Time For RBI's Employee To Question For Loss Of Autonomy

Today, a reserve bank of India employees union has in print to Governor Urjit Patel objecting to a finance ministry step to propel a joint secretary to manage cash operations at the central bank. As per the copy posted on the website the United Forum of reserve bank officers and employees has named thus step ‘unfortunate’. In a stalwartly worded letter to the governor, it is written that’ impinged on reserve bank of India autonomy and its statutory as well as operational jurisdiction’.

This letter also highlights that RBI Act 1934 sanctions the central bank to control the issue of bank notes. Reserve bank of India has come under a lot of criticism after the government determined to invalidate 500Rs and 1000 Rs notes and about 86 percent of the country’s currency in circulation. Its position in the judgment building process and its arrangements have come under the question with the central bank setting out at least 60 notification in the initial 50 days, a few often overturning previous conclusions.

As per this letter union said ‘It is painful to note that Reserve bank of India is being criticized from many quarters for its operational management’ and they also said ‘autonomy and image have been dented beyond repair’. This letter comes at the time when previous governors Y.V.Reddy and Bimal Jalan also hoisted anxieties about the wearing away autonomy of central bank.

According to former RBI’s governor Y.V. Reddy said in an interview that Reserve Bank of India’s autonomy had been gnarled and that recent denigration by global rating agencies now intimidates to negotiate the central bank’s hard earned status. As per the letter from RBI employees ‘ may we request you that as the governor of RBI, its highest functionary and protector of its autonomy and prestige, you will please do the needful urgently to do away with this unwarranted hindrance from the ministry of finance and guarantee accordingly as the staff feels humiliated’.

Kerala Students Invokes Controversy on Death Of Jisnu Pranoy

According to a quote in Jishnu Pranoy’s Facebook page “Whenever death may surprise us, let it be welcome if our battle cry has reached even one receptive ear and another hand reaches out to take up our arms” it is been wrote by Argentinian revolutionary Che Guevara.

Its been 6 days, the Education Minister of Kerela, C Raveendranath visited the family of Jishnu Pronoy who allegedly committed suicide last Friday, he was a first-year student of the Nehru Engineering College. This suicide case has activated protests and assured of strict action. As per a connected development, engineering colleges involved to the Kerala Self Financing Engineering College Managements Association remained closed today to protest the attack on its headquarters.

This is not the first time happened in the history of India, many students have taken such a huge step for some reason or other. Jishnu was last seen by his hostel-mates of Nehru Engineering College at Pambady near Thrissur around 6 pm. This guy who was just 18-year-old was definitely in the ordeal.  Just an hour earlier, he was called to the room of vice-principal Sakthivel and no one had clue about what happened in that room.

The chain of events that dragged Jishnu to death started in the afternoon when he was writing an examination in the college. The invigilator, Praveen C.P., accused the teenager of cheating in the exam. The person who they embrace partially responsible for their classmate’s death is their own teacher named Praveen. He is a teacher in the mechanical engineering department, even abused and insulted 18-year-old Jishnu in full view of the students in the hall. Then, Jishnu was taken to the vice principal’s room around 4:15 pm and that was the last time his classmates encountered with him.

All the students in Kerala were seen on streets, demanding justice for Jishnu who committed suicide in his hostel room on Friday. These furious activists damaged the office building of the Kerala Self Financing Engineering College Management’s Association (KSFECMA) which is situated near Maradu. These people smashed the doors and the windows of the office too.   

Amongst continuing protests on the alleged suicide of engineering college student Jishnu in the cabinet meeting, led by Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan, took the decision of giving financial aid to the family of Jishnu. As per the rule of APJ Abdul Kalam Technological University, the principal is in charge of the examinations held in an affiliated college. Then, why was Jishnu taken to the office of the vice-principal, not to the office of the Principal? And why was he detained up there for an-hour-and-a-half, asks his classmates.

The unfortunate death of Jishnu points to a warning tendency where the needle of doubt turns to the teachers who give assurance to the fresher students and their parents/ guardians from the troubles created by the sadistic senior students. Those who were giving assurance are themselves being accused in this case.His classmates suspected that Jishnu committed suicide for the shame he suffered because of his teacher.

This suicide case has raised a storm amongst students and so they are becoming a part of the protest irrespective of their political affiliation. It is proven from the scenario that the public outcry would not die down until the culprits are brought to justice.
