  4. Page-l: Nirbhaya scheme in disarray: Supreme court. Central Victim Compensation Fund has been created under the Nirbhaya scheme. . S.C.bench recorded that there is a lot of confusion among the three Ministries-Finance, Home Affairs and Women and Child Development scheme is concerned. over what their responsibilities are as far as the The Centre has disbursed 200 crore each to the States to compensate sexual assault victims under the Nirbhaya fund. Certain lacunae in the implementation: [i] Continuous Feedback loop: Centre had never asked for any feedback from the States on how they had spent the Nirbhaya funds. [ii] No uniformity in disbursal to victims or when to pay them compensation or how much compensation to pay. For instance, in Chandigarh, compensation is paid to the rape victim only after conviction of the accused. In Delhi, compensation is paid on the request of the SHO It should be made sure that compensation is disbursed at the time of the complaint filed by the sexual assault victim. [i] Some States have spent the money on CCTV cameras and other "paraphernalia" rather than using it to pay compensation to the human victims of sexual assault and abuse

Under this initiative, a Corpus Fund is disbursed to States/UT to facilitate States/UTs in providing compensation to the victim (including survivors of rape and acid attack) or her dependents who have suffered loss or injury as a result of the crime.

Crisis Centres: Under this scheme, the states were supposed to set up one-stop crisis centres in each district. Accordingly, 653 crisis centres were supposed to be operational across the country. But the progress on this count has so far been tardy. No uniformity among the states in implementing the schemes.There also exists difference in the compensation paid by the states.While some states pay Rs 10 lakh, few others pay only Rs 50,000 to the survivors who were victims of crimes

She was at the centrestage at the UNGA this year, with the Rohingya crisis deepening along Bangladesh's border with Myanmar. Hasina's five-point proposal says: ilMyanmar must stop the violence and the practice of ethnic cleansing in the Rakhine State unconditionally, immediately and forever; [i]UN Secretary General should immediately send a fact-finding mission to Myanmar; [ii] All civilians, irrespective of religion and ethnicity, must be protected in Myanmar; For this, 'safe zones' could be created inside Myanmar under UN supervision; [iv]Sustainable return of all forcibly displaced Rohingyas in Bangladesh to their homes in Myanmar must be ensured; and [v] Recommendations of the Kofi Annan Commission Report must be implemented immediately, nally and entirely.

The official, however, said that the ASEAN countries are yet to take a united step to force Myanmar to take effective measures. He also said that China needs to be more vocal in stopping the tragedy inflicted on the Rohingya.

  11. Page-10: Defiant Iran unveils latest ballistic missile. Iran's Revolutionary Guard unveiled its latest ballistic missile capable of reaching much of the Middle East, including Israel, while the country's President vowed that Tehran would press ahead with its missile program in defiance of U.S. demands to the contrary. The unveiling came during a military parade in Tehran that commemorated the 1980's Iraq-Iran war. The move was a direct challenge to U.S. President Donald Trump, who in August signed a Bill imposing mandatory penalties on those involved in Iran's ballistic missile program and anyone who does business with them. Though Iran has long boasted of having missiles in the same range in its arsenal, it was the first time that the Khoramshahr, with a range of 2,000 km was displayed in public. In February,Iran test-fired the same medium-range type of missile, prompting Mr.Trump to say that the United States is "putting Iran on notice

  13. The Centre said while the GSTN application for refund was getting ready, the Centre was in the process of finding other ways of giving refund,if necessary, through a manual procedure. Committee on Export, set up by the GST Council, has discussed various methods of resolving the issue of blockage of funds for the exporters. In the meantime, the State and Union government authorities have been asked to clear the pending refund claims of Central Excise and VAT for the pre-GST period so that exporters will get immediate relief. Pointing out that the duty drawback scheme was extended in the post-GST regime for three months upto September 30, 2017-subject to exporters not taking input tax credit under GST, the Centre said this means that as of now, for 66% of the value of exports, there is no blockage of funds. . The remaining 33% of exporters always used to prefer a normal refund route for taxes Paid on inputs for Central Excise separately and for VAT separately. . The refund was made available to them only after the actual exports took place and, for such class of exporters, earlier also there was a normal blockage of funds for a period of 5 6 months at least except for those using facility of advance authorisation. Hence, the problem is not as grievous as it is made out to be.

India had submitted to the World Trade Organisation (WTO) a proposal for the TFS, aimed at easing norms, including those related to the movement of skilled workers across borders for short-term work, to boost global services trade growth. . India is keen that the TFS proposal gains traction before the WTO's Ministerial Conference in December in Argentina.
