The Single Bench of Justice Prathiba M Singh further directed the Central Government to submit a detailed affidavit highlighting the kind of portal it is proposing to create for the registration of migrant workers in Delhi. The order has come in a writ petition filed by Mr Shashank S Mangal, seeking registration of migrant workers in Delhi. In the last hearing, the court had directed both the Centre as well as the Delhi Government to submit detailed status reports indicating the data related to migrant workers and three procedures laid down for their registration. In today’s hearing, the Delhi Government informed the court that not a single worker is registered under the Inter-State Migrant Workmen (Regulation of Employment and Conditions of Service) Act, 1979. However, the government further informed, that under the Building and Other Construction Workers (Regulation of Employment and Conditions of Service) Act, 1996, there are various schemes which are available for construction workers. Moreover, the registration of these workers takes place through the e-district portal. It was also submitted by the Delhi Government that during the lockdown period, 39,600 registered construction workers have been disbursed financial assistance. In addition to this, the Union of India submitted that the the Ministry of Labour and Employment, held a video conference on 16th June, 2020 with the intention to prepare a uniform registration format with software for portability across the country to enable the registration of migrant workers. It was further mentioned that despite the fact that the Shram Suvidha portal of the Central Government does provide registration and issue license under the 1979 Act, no request has come so far from the migrant workers in Delhi. In light of these submissions, the court noted that: ‘A perusal of the above two reports/notes shows that there is a dire need for creating a mechanism for registration of migrant workers. Though some progress appears to have been made under the BOCW Act, registration/grant of licences under the 1979 Act is almost negligible, if not nil. This position needs to be altered and solved in order to ensure that migrant labour is adequately protected in terms of the Acts and benefits meant for them are also passed on to them.’ Therefore, the court that directed the Central Government to file a detailed affidavit highlighting the kind of portal, which is sought to be created, for the registration of migrant labour across the country. Such a portal ought to have on board all the state governments so that the ingress and egress of migrant labour is duly recorded and reported. The court will next take up the matter on July 22.

Operation Martillo making strides in counter-narcotics fight

first_imgBy Dialogo July 29, 2013 MIAMI, U.S.A. – The United States’ teaming with Western Hemisphere and European countries has led to the seizure of more than 245,000 kilograms of narcotics as the result of Operation Martillo, an international mission that gathers partner nations to curtail illicit trafficking routes on both coasts of the Central American isthmus. “[U.S. Southern Command’s] commitment to working with partners, both in the region and throughout the U.S. government – from the military to the rest of our government – is helping build an integrated network of defense in the Western Hemisphere, based on shared responsibility and shared values,” United States Deputy Defense Secretary Ash Carter said in a prepared statement. “Through initiatives such as Operation Martillo, U.S. Southern Command and its partners are dismantling transnational criminal networks and disrupting illicit drug trafficking.” Operation Martillo, which is led by the U.S. Joint Interagency Task Force South and includes Canada, Belize, Colombia, Costa Rica, El Salvador, France, Guatemala, Honduras, the Netherlands, Nicaragua, Panama, Spain, and the United Kingdom, strives to disrupt transnational criminal organizations by limiting their ability to use Central America as a transit zone. From Jan. 15, 2012 to July 17, 2013, Operation Martillo, which was launched in January 2012, resulted in the seizure of 207,740 kilograms of cocaine and 37,397 kilograms of marijuana, 472 arrests and the confiscation of 152 assets. The Joint Interagency Task Force South and U.S. Southern Command will continue to work closely with partner nations through Operation Martillo, as 69% of the disruptions made during the past fiscal year were supported by a member nation. During the 2011 fiscal year, 59% of disruptions included a partner nation. The operation directly supports the curtailing of trafficking and the dismantlement of transnational criminal networks in Central America, which are key objectives of the Central America Regional Security Initiative (CARSI). “Operation Martillo demonstrates a clear commitment of the Western Hemisphere and European nations to work as partners to counter the spread of transnational criminal organizations, and to protect citizens in Central America from the violence, harm and exploitation created by these criminal networks,” the Joint Interagency Task Force South and U.S. Southern Command said in a prepared statement. Operation Martillo is integral to the counter-narcotics fight, as about 80% of cocaine shipments are moved via maritime routes. Nearly 90% of the cocaine that reaches the United States comes through Mexico and Central America, according to the United Nations International Narcotics Control Board. “Operation Martillo has been a huge success and demonstrates our clear commitment to work together with our partner nations and interagency community to combat the influence of organized crime and disrupt the flow of illicit drugs into the U.S.,” Rear Adm. Sinclair Harris, commander, U.S. Naval Forces Southern Command, U.S. 4th Fleet, said in a prepared statement. “By teaming up with our partner nations and allied forces to scrutinize the littorals, our goal is to deny them the ability to transit so that the sea lines are not free for illicit traffic.” Partner nations are committed to Operation Martillo. “Canada has steadfast, growing relationships with the people and nations of the Caribbean and Central America,” Canadian Minister of State of Foreign Affairs Diane Ablonczy said in a prepared statement. “We are committed to building on those ties by sharing expertise and pooling our resources to tackle common threats such as international drug smuggling. By working together, we are achieving greater security and prosperity for our hemisphere.”last_img read more

Bobblehead for Dodgers organist Nancy Bea off to hall of fame

first_imgNancy Bea Hefley still has hundreds of boxes to unpack since she retired as the Los Angeles Dodgers organist and moved from Southern California to Carson City last week.But on Wednesday, an item in one of those boxes became Hall of Fame-worthy. OK, not THAT hall of fame.The organist discovered her rare likeness in bobblehead form was headed to Milwaukee to be a part of next year’s inaugural display at the Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum. Sklar said there will be between 7,000 and 10,000 bobbleheads as part of rotating displays and will feature stars of the four major American sports, including Babe Ruth, Sandy Koufax, LeBron James and Wayne Gretzky.Hefley’s bobblehead will join Nancy Faust’s as the only two organists in the museum. Faust was the Chicago White Sox organist who retired in 2010.RIGHT TIME TO LEAVEThe 79-year-old Hefley announced her retirement shortly before the Dodgers season ended and played her last game at the organ Oct. 15 when the New York Mets won Game 5 of the National League Division Series.She said because of her husband’s health issues and the grind of the schedule and the diminished role of the organ as the Dodgers moved more to pre-recorded music, it was the right time to leave. In the 28 years she was the Dodger’s organist, she said she sometimes would play about 40 songs per game during the years the O’Malley family ran the team. Through ownership changes — Fox, Frank McCourt and now Guggenheim Baseball Management — the organ’s presence had lessened to the point where Hefley said she would sometimes only play about two songs, including “Take Me Out to the Ballgame.”When she announced her retirement, she said she had to stop taking her usual walks around the box level because she would get stopped by so many people who wanted to talk with her before she left.“I often wondered if I would be able to accept it when it was time to make the change because it’s been a part of our life for so long,” she said. “But it just feels right.”RETIREMENT PERKSThere will be some upsides to her retirement, however.In addition to bobblehead honors and an invitation by the Dodgers to come back for a guest appearance — or an open invitation to whenever she wants to visit — she said she’d finally be able to see the games on television.While the Dodgers and Time Warner Cable have not been able to get other television carriers like DirecTV and Dish Network to carry the team’s games, Hefley had to follow her team’s progress on the Major League Baseball mobile app.She also found it hard to get to other stadiums since she was working for the Dodgers during the season. She said she’d like to travel and visit a few of the ballparks that she couldn’t get to during the regular season.And she said she’s already thought about what it will be like not having to work Opening Day in 2016.“I already miss the people and I’m sure I will be nostalgic,” she said. “But I’ll be thankful I’m not in that grind.” “I was pretty surprised by it,” Bea said. “I didn’t even know there was such a thing as the Bobblehead Hall of Fame. But that’s great.”LIMITED RELEASEMarc Nehamen of Ontario-based Ultimate Pastime Sports said there were 1,200 made and 200 were signed by Hefley. One of the unique aspects of the bobblehead is while the head shakes, so does her hand above the organ.It’s the only one of her in existence, and Phil Sklar, co-founder of the Bobblehead Hall of Fame, said that added to the value of having it be a part of the first exhibit in their new building in the fall.“There are 40 of Kobe, but only one of Nancy,” Sklar said. “And the value is enhanced with baseball being America’s pastime and it honors the people behind the scenes at the stadium for the 100-year existence of the game and made it so enjoyable to generations of fans.”center_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more
