Google delivers 'return to sender' code for iOS

Code is king at Google, and a Google-made software module for iOS released on Tuesday allows you to go from third-party app to Chrome for iOS and back again with a simple tap.

The module, called OpenInChromeController class with x-callback, is the second end-run around core Apple restrictions in as many days. On Monday, Google updated Gmail for iOS with the ability to open links from Gmail in Google's other iOS apps. Once developers incorporate the new software module, it will open links from the app in Google Chrome, provided that the user has Chrome for iOS installed.

Both the Gmail update and the software module circumvent one of iOS's most-complained about and unique restrictions, which forces all links to open in the browser Safari, even when the default browser has been changed. Apple did not immediately return a request for comment, but it's hard to imagine that Apple would allow Google or any other app maker to alter such a central iOS behavior.

Current iOS behavior requires developers to either create a Web browser frame inside their app, or force their users out of their app and into Safari.
Google engineer Michele Aiello wrote in the blog post announcing the callback module that it will be not only be able to detect if Chrome for iOS is installed, but that it can open links in Chrome in a new tab or in the current tab. Developers can also choose whether they want the return button to appear.

SPEAK ASIA well known certified for fraud comapany, successfully lost my money and my frendz hope almost 3 years . :-)

The Indian rupee fell by 46 paise to a record low of Rs 54.17 per US dollar in early trade today, breaching the Rs 54 per dollar-mark for the first time in history on sustained foreign capital outflows and dollar gains against the euro and other rivals overseas.

The domestic currency had tumbled by 48 paise to close at a record low of Rs 53.71/72 per dollar in the previous session on strong demand for the American currency and strengthening of the dollar against its rivals overseas.

Forex dealers said in addition to continued demand for the American currency from importers and some banks, dollar gains against the euro and other currencies amid concerns over the euro zone debt crisis put pressure on the Indian rupee.

Meanwhile, the BSE benchmark Sensex fell by 158.51 points, or 1 per cent, to 15,722.63 in opening trade today.

Customers suffer the brunt of the bulk SMS ban

New Delhi :

Shivani Anand, 28, was mystified when she didn't receive transaction alerts after swiping her credit card in a shopping spree.

A concerned Shivani called up her bank's (ICICI) helpline, only to find out she would not be getting any updates or alerts from the bank on her transactions till Sep 30.

The bank's automated voice response system informed customers that they would not be receiving any alerts in the in the wake of the government banning bulk SMS service across the country.

'I was very confused and a little nervous as I these messages help me in keeping a track of my account,' said Shivani.

For Anvesh Ghosh, a manager in a multi national company in Gurgaon. things turned out to be hilarious when he gave his credit card to his wife for shopping but did not receive any details of the purchase done.

'I was relaxed that I will get the transaction alerts but now I have no idea of how much amount remains remains in my account,' he said jokingly.

There are many like Shibani and Anvesh who have been affected by the government's decision to extend the ban on all bulk SMS services until Sep 30 after the Supreme Court decided to defer by a week its judgement in the Ayodhya land title suit.

The government had initially banned bulk SMS and MMS services till Saturday ahead of the Ayodhya verdict Sep 24, in a bid to check the spread of rumours or hateful messages. However, the Supreme Court on Thursday postponed the verdict till Sep 28, resulting in an extension of the ban till Sep 30.

Complying with the centre's rule, banks and financial companies have stopped sending SMS alerts to customers and equity trading account holders on transactions carried out via the ATM or Internet.

Most of banks have issued statements on their websites and customer helplines stating that the customers will not receive SMS alerts during the ban period.

'As per the telecom ministry directive, SMS alert services will not be available till midnight of Wednesday, 30-09-2010. We would advise you to exercise additional caution in your banking and credit card transactions. Inconvenience caused is regretted,' said a note on the HDFC Bank's website.

The cellular operators association of India (COAI) has also submitted a request to the department of telecom (DOT) to relax the ban for certain essential services for the convenience of subscribers.

'We have already submitted request to the telecom department to relax the ban for essential services,' said Rajan Mattews, director general of COAI.

'The operators communication with its customers can be easily tracked,' he added.

However, the DOT could not be contacted despite repeated attempts.

thanks for ur reply

A regulation to control unsolicited commercial calls/messages on mobile phones will be finalised by this month-end, while a national broadband plan with the aim of reaching every home by 2020 will be ready by October-end, according to Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) Chairman J. S. Sarma.

Talking to reporters after TRAI held its first 'Open house discussion on national broadband plan' with stakeholders here on Monday, he said the TRAI finalised the report and the "necessary regulation" would be in place by September-end. It would come into effect immediately after the announcement.

He said studies have proved that broadband utilisation had tremendous effect on gross domestic product (GDP). A 10 percentage point increase in broadband penetration accounted for 1.38 percentage point increase in per capita GDP growth in developing economies.

Although the National Broadband Policy of 2004 envisaged 20 million broadband connections by 2010, only 50 per cent was achieved with the country having 10 million broadband users at present.

Mr. Sarma said TRAI had set out the idea of developing a National Broadband Plan by using different technologies to ensure broadband access to at least 100 million homes by 2014.

The plan would seek to achieve the objective through telecom, internet and cable operators.

Issues such as definition of minimum speed of broadband, the type of spectrum to be allocated for wireless broadband, separate broadband speeds for urban and rural areas, the charges being collected by municipalities for giving Right of Way (RoW) permission and the lack of power supply were discussed in the open house. Some of the stakeholders suggested the need for a national telecom infrastructure policy and wanted the proposed National Broadband Plan to be implemented in three phases up to 2020.

Replying to a question, he said number portability for mobiles would be allowed from November 1.

Wipro recognised as first Bluetooth test facility in India

Bangalore:  Global software major Wipro Technologies has been recognised as India's first Bluetooth qualification test facility by the Bluetooth trade association, the IT bellwether said late Tuesday.

Bluetooth is an open wireless technology standard for exchanging data over short distances (using short length radio waves) from fixed and mobile devices, creating personal area networks (PANs) with high levels of security.

The recognition makes Wipro competent to perform Bluetooth qualification conformance or compliance tests, the company said in a statement here.

"We will test products submitted by members of the Bluetooth special interest group at our test lab in the electronics city campus. The tests will also include Bluetooth protocol conformance," said Wipro vice-president C.P. Gangadharaiah.

Bluetooth qualification is the certification process required for any product using Bluetooth wireless technology and a pre-condition of the intellectual property (IP) license for Bluetooth technology.

"India is known for its strong software expert pool. Many profiles and protocol stacks of Bluetooth-enabled products were developed in India. This market is influential in the Bluetooth original equipment manufacturer (OEM) automotive market and in the Bluetooth mobile advertising," Bluetooth chief technology officer Andy Glass said in the statement.

Bluetooth technology has expanded beyond headset and mobile phone applications to high-growth market segments, including health and fitness and gaming.

"Gaming is the second largest application in terms of Bluetooth shipments. About 1,000 new Bluetooth enabled product designs were evolved and over 3,000 Bluetooth enabled products were tested and qualified in 2009," Glass added.

'Re-examination of jobs must in knowledge era'

COIMBATORE: Re-examination of jobs, managers and work processes is a must in knowledge era, Vice-Chancellor, Anna University, Coimbatore, K. Karunakaran, said here on Thursday.

Speaking at the 'First International Conference on Intelligent Information Systems and Management', organised at RVS Group of Engineering and Management Institutions, he said, "the reassessment is necessary because knowledge will form the foundation of successful enterprises in future."


"Knowledge built on intelligent information will allow organisations to be more flexible and better able to adapt to the continuously changing and often complex environment."

This was because intelligent systems helped identify relevant causes of problems, evaluated the benefit of proposed solutions and documented them even where they involved vagueness and uncertainty.


"Intelligent systems focus on how to achieve desired result rather than simply providing data or reports that are required," he said.

Intelligent information systems, when built, should provide support to decision makers with an emphasis on semi-structured and unstructured decisions. It should support managers at all levels and provide integration between levels.

Intelligence would have to be added to the available data to adequately support complex decisions that required interpretation and evaluation to potential consequences and outcomes.

And finally, a friendlier computer interface, including visualisation and multimedia support, would be needed to be incorporated.

M. Durai Singh, Country Business Manager, HP India Sales Private Limited, Bangalore, spoke on the company's green computing initiative and also on how technology got transferred to students. K. Senthil Ganesh, Managing Trustee, RVS Educational Trust, presided over the function.

V. Gunaraj, Principal, Welcomed the gathering. K.V. Kupusamy, Chairman, was present on the occasion.

SBI plans Rs. 20,000 cr rights issue

NEW DELHI: State Bank of India on Wednesday announced that it had plans to raise Rs.20,000 crore through a rights issue along with another Rs.200 crore from bonds this fiscal to fund business growth.

"We are expecting to raise Rs.20,000 crore from a rights issue,'' bank Chairman O. P. Bhatt told reporters here on the sidelines of a CII event.

He said the issue might come up by this fiscal end since the bank was now talking to the government about it. "It is still at the talks stage. That is why if at all it comes up, it would be towards the end of this fiscal,'' he added. The government holds about 59 per cent stake in SBI and the rights issue is subscribed by the existing shareholders.

On the bond issue to retail investors, Mr. Bhatt said, the bank planned to raise around Rs.200 crore in the first half of this fiscal. The money would be raised from the domestic market and bonds would be offered to retail investors..

LIC to act as registrar for UID project

MUMBAI: Life Insurance Corporation of India (LIC) on Wednesday signed a memorandum of understanding with the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) to act as a registrar for the delivery of the unique 12-digit identity numbers to customers, making it the first institution other than State governments to sign up with UIDAI.

UIDAI has envisioned the UID as a number that will make it possible for Indian residents to easily establish their identity to facilitate their interaction with various public and private agencies across the country. It is to be based on demographic and biometric data, that is, photograph, fingerprints (all ten fingers) and iris scan of an individual and hence prevents duplication. The UID number has been branded 'Aadhaar' (foundation).

Addressing the media here, LIC Chairman T. S. Vijayan said, "LIC will be able to uniquely identify its customers thereby enhancing its efficiency in service delivery and achieving a high level of effectiveness in various operations. We know how to contact people and that is our strength. With over 14 lakh agents last year, we covered over six crore lives selling 3.88 crore new policies.''

Big challenge

UIDAI Chairman Nandan Nilekani said, "when conceptualising UID, we took a few decisions very early on, one of which was to provide a number and not a card to all Indian residents. The big challenge is to ensure no duplication and so we will use biometrics. We also needed to have the concept of 'online authentication' where an individual comes to a service point and his identity can be verified in seconds. The only equipment required is a mobile phone with a fingerprint reader. We decided to have multiple registrars to give as many UIDs as soon as possible and LIC is appropriate as the first registrar. We are also talking to organisations like the Reserve Bank of India, the Indian Banks' Association (IBA) and the Ministry of Finance.''

He added that the two main matrices of success were the speed of getting more people to have UID numbers and the speed of having them being able to derive value from it. "Inclusion is also most important because there are a few 100 million Indians with no IDs and ID has effectively become a divide between 'haves and have-nots''. The UID project is a platform to bridge that gap.''

On schedule

According to UIDAI Director General and Mission Director R. S. Sharma, the roll out of the UID numbers is on schedule and would be between August 2010 and February 2011. "We are in the process of setting up back-end business continuity centres in Bangalore and New Delhi. The software is being delivered on time and there is a whole list of empanelled agencies to choose from for data collection.''

Mr. Sharma also clarified that the UID was "as of now only for resident Indians and non-resident Indians and other categories are not covered although the government may decide at a later date to do so.''

'Railway season tickets being misused'

Coimbatore: The Coimbatore Consumer Cause (CCC) has appealed to Railway Minister Mamata Banerjee to check misuse of monthly season tickets issued for those below the poverty line.

In a memorandum to the Minister, Secretary of CCC K. Kathirmathiyon pointed out that as per the norms, people whose monthly income is below Rs.1,500 could travel a distance of up to 100 km..

For a distance of up to 100 km, the cost of normal season ticket was around Rs.300 and it was Rs. 25 under concession.

The regular season ticket itself was cheaper compared to the bus fare. From the statistics available, it was found that concessional tickets issued at Coimbatore Jn. Tirupur, Erode and Salem are nearly 50 per cent. Nearly 3,900 monthly season tickets were issued at concession rates in these stations for a month. In Erode, it was found that the concession tickets issued were more than the season tickets. Before introduction of the scheme, the total season tickets issued at Erode were 1,377. But under the concession scheme 1, 718 tickets were issued at the particular station. The scheme was announced to help those living below poverty line. Unfortunately, a sizeable number of people are misusing it.

More than 40 per cent of the people travelling with the season tickets have concessional tickets.

Some people are even travelling more than 100 km also by availing the concessional ticket. CCC expects the Railways to be transparent in collecting its fare. There was no proper mechanism to verify the genuineness of the beneficiaries and no provision for any penal action if the scheme was misused.

NEYVELI: All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam leader Jayalalithaa on Sunday promised a power-cut free Tamil Nadu if returned to power in 2011.

It would be her priority to tide over power shortage within months of coming back to power and ensure uninterrupted supply round the clock to all sections of society, she said while addressing a demonstration here to protest against the failure of the Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam government on the power front.

During the AIADMK rule till May 2006 the State was surplus in power. Now it had turned power deficient. The entire State had been plunged into darkness and day-to-day life had come to a standstill, affecting the economy.

However, ruling party functionaries, government officials, dignitaries and foreign companies in Chennai were assured of 24-hour supply while the rest of Tamil Nadu was sweating it out.

She cited the following reasons for the present state of affairs: dismal functioning of thermal stations owing to lack of maintenance and administrative lapses, corruption in the TNEB, reduction in Tamil Nadu's share from the Central power grid and import of substandard quality coal.

Chief Minister M. Karunanidhi was not staking claim to the State's rightful share from the Central grid for fear of losing power and was passing on the blame to her.

Ms Jayalalithaa said that during her regime the total installed power generation capacity was 10,011 MW, which had now declined to 7,300 MW.

The Chief Secretary had gone on record stating that the power situation would not improve before 2011, implying that as long as the present DMK government lasted, there would be no respite from power cut.

TNEB losses

Besides causing immense hardships to all sections of society by imposing frequent power cuts, both scheduled and unscheduled, the Karunanidhi government had inflicted losses to the tune of Rs.2,522 crore on the TNEB.

She alleged that in the procurement of coal, corruption was taking place. For instance, about 2.1 million tonnes of coal was being imported annually from Indonesia at $103 a tonne, while the actual cost was $82, thereby causing a loss of $44 million (Rs.200 crore).

Over 1,000 vacancies filled in Corporation

COIMBATORE: As many as 1,008 vacancies to various posts in the Coimbatore Corporation were filled in the last three years, Minister for Rural Industries and Animal Husbandry said here recently.

Handing over orders of appointment to 32 persons to the post of Junior Assistant-cum-typist and to 76 conservancy workers, the Minister said the present government had enabled the filling up of a huge number of vacancies caused by a ban on recruitment before it assumed power.

The Minister said the city would witness a great amount of development as infrastructure works were on in connection with the World Classical Tamil Conference to be held in June this year.

Apart from the conference-related works, the projects under the Jawaharlal Nehru National Urban Renewal Mission would step up the development in the city.

Mayor R. Venkatachalam and Deputy Mayor N. Karthik also listed the efforts being taken to improve the city's infrastructure.

Corporation Commissioner Anshul Mishra said that 73 employees in various positions had been promoted in the Corporation. While 1,008 persons were recruited directly, 243 were appointed on compassionate grounds.

The Corporation was taking efforts to get another 288 posts, including that of doctors in its health centres, filled.

Maths "tough" at IIT-JEE

CHENNAI: About 6,000 students took the Indian Institute of Technology-Joint Entrance Examination (IIT-JEE) in 12 centres across the city on Sunday. A total of 4.72 lakh students appeared for the examination all over the country.

This year's examination pattern did not spring too many surprises. The only minor changes were the absence of negative marking in two sections and a partial marking system (marks based on the number of right choices) in the multiple right answer questions.

Explaining the rationale behind the removal of negative marking in some sections, T. S. Natarajan, organising chairman, JEE 2010, said, "Students who study so hard end up getting frustrated when they get negative marks on something. We do not want to stretch it beyond a point and want to move towards a system in which the effect of negative marking is minimised."

The testing followed the same kind of pattern that has been adopted over the past four years with questions from the following categories -- multiple choice, assertion and reasoning, reading comprehension and match the following.

Ajay Antony, course director, IIT-JEE, TIME, said: "The integer type questions in maths were especially tough."

Suchit Vasudevan, one of the test takers, said: "Maths was twice as hard as the last year paper that we took during mock exams. It was a good mix of conceptual and numerical questions. But there were some questions that you have a look at and you are absolutely clueless."

Pointing out that most students found the mathematics paper time consuming, K.K. Anand, founder and director of SMART Institute, said that it might result in the cut-off coming down in comparison to last year.

The results of the examination will be out in the last week of May.

"The counselling and seat allotment process will go online this year," said Mr. Natarajan.

General candidate students can select their course from the convenience of their homes. However, students availing themselves of the quota will have to go in person to show proof of identity.

Students will be able to fill in their preference of courses and college online, and seats will be offered in order of rank and preference. It will be held between May 27 and June 9.

Mahatma Gandhi University in Nalgonda has 230 seats while Palamuru University, Mahabubnagar, has 320 seats. The newly formed universities offer only a few courses as of now. Students can seek admission in any of these four universities on the basis of the rank secured.

Director, Directorate of Examinations, Rajeshwar Reddy, said that last year 1,21,799 candidates had registered of which 99,789 candidates had appeared and 68,704 candidates qualified.

"Health is a state of physical, mental and social well being"

DINDIGUL: Participation of communities, cooperation of individuals and massive awareness among masses were essential for effective implementation of any government scheme, particularly health schemes. Government alone cannot implement all schemes effectively.

These were highlighted at the World Health Day function at Oddanchatram near here on Wednesday.

Superintendent of Police M.S. Muthusamy, in his guest address, said sociological needs pressed people to migrate to urban areas from villages.

Opportunities for better education, employment and transport and other facilities draws people towards cities.

With advancements in science and technology, several facilities in the field of education and health available in urban localities have been made available in rural areas, he pointed out. "We can lead a better life in a healthy atmosphere at villages."

In his special address, Joint Director of Health Services T. Jayabal said the main aim was to highlight the impact of urban living on human health and encourage efforts to make cities healthier places for the people to live. The motive behind this year's World Health Day was to focus on urbanization and health.

Every one should think of what should be done instead of what should not be.

Spreading of new diseases was due to destruction of nature, denudation of forests and drilling earth to draw water, he deplored. "If we protect nature, it will protect us."

Deputy Director of Health Services R. Balaji expressed grave concern over resurgence of communicable diseases.

Road accidents too were on the raise. Urbanisation was the main reason for such threats, he added.

Tamil Nadu Health System Project Coordinator A. Asai Thambi said health was a state of complete physical, mental and social well being and not mere absence of diseases or infirmity.

Best teacher Chenni Shanmugam said real health was mental health and good personality.

Later, prizes were distributed to best performing nurses, 108 ambulance staff and winners of various competitions.

Anna University-Tirunelveli to offer B.E. Geo Informatics from this academic year

TIRUNELVELI: Anna University - Tirunelveli is all set to launch a four-year BE Geo Informatics programme from the forthcoming academic year following increasing demand for qualified young technocrats in space research organisations and allied fields.

As the university is already offering two-year M.Tech. and Ph.D. programmes in Geo Informatics and it has become the only technical institution outside Anna University-Chennai in the State to offer this much-wanted course, demand for this programme is likely to be very high.

Speaking to The Hindu here on Monday, Vice-Chancellor S. Kaliappan, who was previously the head of Anna University - Chennai's Centre for Remote Sensing, said that the M. Tech. Geo Informatics students' hard work, sincerity and the understanding of the subject, all doing their projects with prestigious institutions such as National Remote Sensing Agency, Hyderabad, and Indian Space Research Organisation, Bangalore, had won the hearts of senior scientists working for these research facilities. Hence, Anna University - Tirunelveli decided to start BE Geo Informatics from this academic year.

"Each constituent colleges of the university -- at Palayamkottai, Nagercoil and Tuticorin -- will admit 120 students in this course, for which we've designed a world-class curriculum. The existing infrastructure we've developed in this revolutionary field will be an added advantage," Dr. Kaliappan said.

Utilising his close contacts with ISRO and its senior scientists, including its chairman K. Radhakrishnan, who was awarded Ph.D. by Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur, in 2000 for his thesis on 'Some strategies for management of Indian earth observation system', the Vice-Chancellor has already initiated steps to establish a highly sophisticated research station on its premises at Government College of Engineering, Tirunelveli, with the funding of ISRO.

"Students of BE and M.Tech. and research scholars of Geo Informatics will have the rare opportunity of handling the high-end gadgets, normally used in the space research establishments across the globe," Dr. Kaliappan said.

Chennai topple leaders Mumbai

Chennai Super Kings completed a sweep of their three-match home leg after the Mumbai Indians' batting fell apart in a rash of poor strokes following Sachin Tendulkar's retirement due to dehydration. On a track where 467 runs were plundered three days ago, boundaries were hard to come by and, despite being hampered by dew, Chennai easily defended their moderate total.


Tendulkar was on his haunches and breathing heavily as early as the fourth over of the chase. However, he and Shikhar Dhawan provided their customary solid start, hitting a four an over in the Powerplay to take Mumbai to 46 for 0. Dhawan chopped on Thilan Thushara's first delivery, but Mumbai progressed smoothly, if slowly, to 62 after nine overs when Tendulkar decided to retire.

After looking in control of the match till then, Mumbai imploded, losing a wicket in each of the next six overs. Ambati Rayudu was the first to go, stumped after tearing out of the crease and missing when looking to loft a short ball from Suresh Raina. When Chennai celebrated, Rayudu practised the stroke that would have served him better, a cut.

The potentially explosive Trinidad pair of Dwayne Bravo and Kieron Pollard have done little of note with the bat all tournament, and the trend continued at the MA Chidambaram Stadium. Both looked to launch the ball into the crowds beyond the sightscreen but got more height than distance on their strokes, and a pair of well-held catches sent them on their way.

In between, the promising youngster Saurabh Tiwary who had looked the most assured of the Mumbai batsmen barring Tendulkar, also perished, slogging straight to deep midwicket off the impressive Shadab Jakati, whose solid tournament continued.

R Sathish and Ryan McLaren were involved in some nervy running before Sathish was caught out by a direct hit from S Badrinath at short cover. The only wicket the bowler can take credit for in the entire collapse was McLaren's - offspinner R Ashwin trapping him lbw in front of offstump, so plumb that Chennai's appeal was more a celebration than a question. Mumbai had lurched to 92 for 7 and even the return of Tendulkar couldn't extend their winning run.

Their bowlers had done a better job earlier in the evening, shackling a powerful Chennai batting line-up. Opener M Vijay couldn't complete a hat-trick of brutal innings in front of his home crowd, bottom-edging Harbhajan Singh onto the stumps early.

Matthew Hayden is supposed to be the bruiser at the top of the Chennai line-up, but yet again he couldn't find the boundaries, dealing mainly in singles. After the lethargy in the Powerplays, Suresh Raina was just starting to catalyse the innings before failing in his attempt to clear midwicket off a short ball

Chennai were kept on their toes when Dhoni made a typical bustling start, and Hayden flicked and drove Bravo for ten runs in the next over. When Dhoni edged one past the keeper for four in the 12th over, 63 runs had come off the previous six. It was two overs later that the match swung. Pollard's slow bouncer tricked Dhoni, and Hayden's Mongoose bat wasn't enough to clear long-on off the next delivery.

The home side slid to 119 for 4, after which boundaries again proved scarce, none coming in the next four overs. Michael Hussey and S Badrinath picked off the singles but struggled to hit top gear, before some innovative strokeplay from Badrinath lifted Chennai to 165, which ultimately proved enough for their third straight win.
Students motivated by Arjuna awardee during sports meet

THANJAVUR: Noted Athlete Arjuna awardee Shiny Wilson stressed the importance of hard work to come up in life. Speaking at the 26th Sports Day celebration of SASTRA University here on Monday, Shiny Wilson cited her own example to impress the students. "I ran to a distance of 15 to 20 kms every day. I practised for four hours in the morning and four hours in the evening" she said. I made up my mind to participate in Olympics at one point of time. I followed my decision with hard work. I could succeed, she said.

She later gave away prizes to winners in various sports events. Srivatsava, Registrar of the University, Badrinath, Dean, Paramasivam, Physical Education director, participated.

Exhibition on school education begins

CHENNAI: A two-day exhibition on school education, being organised by the Chennai Corporation, began on Monday at the Corporation Higher Secondary School, Saidapet.

Speaking at the inauguration, Mayor M.Subramanian said "The new admissions to Corporation schools started on April 1 and the response has been encouraging. Around 915 students have been admitted to the schools."

A total of 743 students have been admitted to the I Standard and 172 students have been admitted to Standard VI on the first day of admissions, he said.

The Chennai Corporation Schools would be renamed on Thursday as Chennai Schools. He distributed admission cards to 80 students, including those who have dropped out of school sometime ago. The English medium schools of the Corporation had enrolled around 800 students last year, said Mr. Subramanian.

Parents should disseminate information about the education schemes of the Corporation for the benefit of other students in their neighbourhood, he added.

The results of Corporation schools have been better than other schools because of the welfare measures, he said.

The 29 stalls at the exhibition cover the measures initiated by the civic body for improving school education. It includes measures such as launch of special schools for students with disability, English education, scholarships, free shoes bags and school uniforms, computer training, community colleges and night shelters.

The exhibition has been organised to increase awareness of the initiatives taken by the Corporation and help more students belonging to the weaker sections gain access to better education, said Corporation Commissioner Rajesh Lakhoni. Deputy Commissioner Education M.Balaji participated.


BSNL network jammed

Coimbatore: The subscribers of Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) cellular network in Coimbatore secondary switching area went through a harrowing experience on Sunday following a network failure. The subscribers were not able to receive or make calls occasionally.

BSNL officials said the problems were being attended to.
Tata Nano may ferry Taj hotel guests

Mumbai/Kolkata: Tata-promoted Taj Hotels may decide to add the Nano to their line of chauffeur-driven cars used for guest transfers.

ndian Hotels (IHCL), owner of the Taj brand of premium hotels and the biggest hospitality chain in Asia, recently inducted some Jaguar sedans into its fold, post the Tata acquisition of the brand. It may now look at the Nano, produced by group company Tata Motors.

One of the smallest cars in the world but also among the biggest brands within the Tata conglomerate, the Nano had generated significant interest across the world, especially from auto makers and car enthusiasts. IHCL would perhaps look to leverage this strength for itself, according to a senior company executive.

Ajoy K Misra, senior vice president, sales and marketing, IHCL, said: "We always look for synergies within the Tata Group by sharing of products and brands. It's possible, going forward, when the production of the Nano is being stretched at some stage, that we would not rule out its being in one of our line-ups."

While it is not known if any such request from a guest for the car had come in, the company believes such a demand could arise, considering the excitement the Nano created. "I don't rule out any demand of that kind from us, moving forward," added Misra.

The company doesn't expect widespread demand for the Nano, which would mostly come from international travellers coming to India, as the car is yet to be launched overseas.

"There is much curiosity and interest attached with the Nano ever since the car was unveiled a couple of years ago. With Tata Motors stating there is still more than a year for the car to hit international roads, foreign travellers can only get to drive in it in India. This is what will make Taj add the car to its line-up," stated a senior official from another hotel chain.

Focus on importance of soft skills for students

PALANI: Communication skill, soft skills, personality development and change in attitude were basic requirements for graduates to become employable. Ability to communicate effectively was important to face stiff competition in every sphere of life, said P. R. Sampath, Commissioner, Hindu Religious and Charitable Endowments.

Delivering the 27 {+t} {+h} Graduation Day address at Arulmigu Palani Andavar College of Arts and Culture here on Saturday, he said that the 'right speaking skill' had been neglected for a long time in our school and college curricula. Fading habit of reading books also contributed to the inability of students to communicate in a better way.

Spoken English must be taught as a separate subject in schools and colleges using modern methods of teaching, training and testing. Practical exercises on extempore speech, prepared speeches, group discussion and debates were some of the techniques to be followed to enhance communication skills. Video recording of speech, speaking before mike, voice training, gesture exercise, confidence building measures and eye contact would certainly enhance speaking skills, he said.

Stating that recession was temporary, the Commissioner said that six lakh jobs would be created in the Information Technology sector in the next three years.

A continuous process

Learning must become a continuous process. Acquiring a job should not become an end of learning. Graduates should inculcate a habit of reading, observing nature and refining abilities to become successful. Education should create magnanimity, fair-mindedness and sacrifice to work for a goal, Mr. Sampath said.

Education, in the recent past, had become a tool for a learner to get a job and for countries to develop economy. It should also make a man civilised. Higher education must develop basic courtesy and culture among people. Graduates should develop friendship and cooperation while learning to co-exist in a socio-economic environment. Above all, education should develop one's personality.

The Department of Hindu Religious and Charitable Endowments had been managing five arts colleges, one polytechnic college and 36 schools, he added.

Tamil Virtual University to lose university label

CHENNAI: The State government has renamed Tamil Virtual University, which has been functioning since 2001, as the "International Academy for Internet Tamil."

A government order was issued on March 26 by the Information Technology department and received by the university on Thursday.

Speaking to The Hindu, V.C.Kulandai Swamy, chairman of the institution, said a number of delegates who attended the Tamil internet conference in 1999 had suggested that a university be created to ensure that developments in Tamil computing were collected and preserved.

Following this, Tamil Virtual University was created in 2001 as an autonomous institution functioning under the State government. Apart from providing course content, the institution website hosts a digital library and provides access to Tamil software.

"The institution does not award diplomas or degrees. All degrees and diplomas are awarded by Tamil University at Thanjavur. Even our Academic Council resolutions are forwarded to Tamil University for its approval. Our function is to prepare and help students," Dr. Kulandai Swamy said. Since the name "university" could not be used without due permission, he had written a letter to the State government over two months ago, he said.

He suggested that either an Act be passed in the Assembly to create a university under the name or that the name of the institution be changed to avoid controversy.

[To be called a university, an institution needs to seek approval from the University Grants Commission (UGC) or the State or Central legislature should pass an Act creating it as a university.]

He clarified that he had taken this step of his own accord and that there had been no demand or order from any quarter. Poongothai Aladi Aruna, State IT Minister, said the government had decided to avoid controversies and had decided on the name change. P.W.C.Davidar, IT secretary, said the institution had been created to facilitate global access to Tamil enthusiasts over the internet.

 Airport authorities planning introduction of overseas flights

MADURAI: With the new terminal building in Madurai airport expected to become fully operational by July-August, the authorities are contemplating introduction of international services to destinations like Singapore and Kuala Lumpur based on market feedback.

A reliable Airports Authority of India (AAI) source said here on Wednesday that after the recent visit of the AAI Chairman, work is in full-swing at the airport.

The Confederation of Indian Industry, Tamil Nadu Chamber of Commerce and Industry and Madurai District Tiny and Small Scale Industries Association have impressed upon the officials about the need to introduce international flights from the temple city.

The proposals are being examined at the top level for implementation.

Currently, Madurai has nine flights per day to Chennai and one each to Mumbai and Bangalore.

The capacity for Chennai is 654 seats, 45 for Mumbai and 66 for Bangalore. But the demand is so high that on an average most of the carriers operate on 80 per cent seat factor. A seat in economy class to Chennai is priced around Rs 15,000. Though this might not directly reflect on the need for international services, it was an indicator of the potential in Madurai, the source said.

There is good potential for export of cargo to Asian countries. Madurai's jasmine, sungudi sarees and textile goods are some of the goods in demand.

The AAI has been requested to consider the proposals to operate Chennai-Madurai-Male, Madurai-Muscat, Madurai-Dubai and Singapore or Kuala Lumpur-Chennai-Madurai-Chennai flights thrice a day.

The travel industry has suggested the timings as follows: departure Chennai 12 hours, arrival Madurai 12.50; departure Madurai 13.30 and arrival Male 14.35.

In the return direction, it may leave Male at 15.35 hours, arrive Madurai at 16.40, depart Madurai at 17.30 and reach Chennai at 18.20.

The proposed Male flight on arrival at Madurai may take Singapore and Kuala Lumpur passengers on three days a week.

The suggested timings are: Chennai departure 19.20 hours, Singapore or Kuala Lumpur arrival 23.20, Singapore or Kuala Lumpur departure 01.00, arrival Chennai 05.00 and depart at 06.00; arrival at Madurai 06.50 hours and departure for Chennai at 07.30.

The travel industry has recommended that 30 to 40 passengers may fly (per flight) to Male from Madurai and that Chennai will provide a load of 40 to 50 passengers per flight.

Union Minister for Fertilizers and Chemicals M.K. Alagiri had in his election manifesto promised to introduce international services from the Madurai airport. The officials had briefed the Minister about the progress at a recent meeting.

No PAN? Be prepared to pay 20% tax from tomorrow

NEW DELHI: Get ready to shell out more tax up front on any income received if you are unable to provide your permanent account number from April 1. The tax deducted at source, or TDS, on payments could be as high as 20% for those not quoting PAN against the regular rate of 2%-10%.

The Budget 2009-10 had made it mandatory for residents and non-residents to quote this number or face a higher rate of withholding tax. It comes into effect from Thursday, April 1.

The idea behind the rule is to encourage more people to obtain PAN, a 10-digit alphanumeric tax payer identification number, and thereby become visible to tax authorities. The tax base of the country is a mere 3.3 crore because of massive underreporting of incomes and large-scale exemptions.

Quoting of PAN will allow income tax authorities to establish an audit trail and catch tax evaders. Some experts feel the measure is excessive. "This would put unnecessary burden on senior citizens who do not have a tax liability," said Kishan Malhotra, Executive Director, KPMG.

Senior citizens could just file Form 15H in absence of tax liability and become eligible for exemption from TDS. If they do not furnish a PAN they will have to face a TDS rate of 20%.

Other Indian residents not falling within the tax bracket will also have to obtain a PAN and quote it where required. Tax deducted at source can be adjusted against a taxpayer's actual tax liability. But in the case where there is no tax liability it has to be claimed back by filing returns.

The new rule comes with a severe penalty if not followed. Any failure to deduct taxes at appropriate rates will result in disallowance of expenditure for the one making payment, recovery of tax from him, and levy of interest and penalty. Interestingly, the total number of PAN issued in the country is in excess of 8 crore. Income Tax department issues the permanent account number in partnership with UTITSL and NSDL.

With this provision coming into effect even non-residents, having just one-off transaction with Indian parties will have to obtain PAN, failing which they will suffer a much higher withholding tax on their income.

Typically, payments by residents to non-residents in the nature of royalties or fees for technical services attract withholding tax at rate of 10.56% under the Income Tax Act or at 10% under certain tax treaties in the absence of a permanent establishment or a fixed place of work in India.

Similarly, interest payments to non-residents attract withholding tax at a rate lower than 20% under certain tax treaties. The PAN is required to be quoted in document pertaining relating to sale of property, sale or purchase of a motor vehicle requiring registration other than two-wheelers. Most of the banking transactions require PAN to be quoted.

Nokia enhances 'email on the mobile' service

BANGALORE: Nokia has enhanced its 'email on the mobile' services, for messaging and social networking.

Speaking to reporters here on Tuesday, Head Online Marketing, Viral Oza said "The service can support up to 10 email accounts''. Rights now Nokia had tied up with mail provider Ovi Mail. Nokia will have corporate and consumer versions of its offering.

BSNL IPTV regional bouquet gets better

CHENNAI: Bharat Sanchar Nigam Ltd (BSNL) will look to roll out Internet Protocol Television (IPTV) services more aggressively across major cities in the State with most channels on the Sun Network set to join the IPTV bouquet from April.

BSNL's IPTV services had gone commercial with about 140 channels in October in Chennai, and later in Puducherry and Coimbatore, without the major Sun channels on offer. IPTV, which offers several interactive features such as movie-on-demand, was launched in partnership with MyWay services of the Smart TV Group.

"We have planned a major expansion campaign after we host most Tamil, Telugu and Kannada channels on the Sun Network," a MyWay official said.

IPTV will now feature 16 regional channels of the Network.

However, for IPTV users this could cut both ways. While they will have access to richer regional content, the pricing of the packages could be tweaked shortly.

The next phase of the IPTV rollout in Tamil Nadu will cover Madurai and Coimbatore. "We had to delay the rollout in these cities as we needed to enlarge the bouquet of Tamil content", the official said.

BSNL sources say that one of the reasons for the below-par performance of the IPTV segment had been the insufficient Tamil content. In the five months since it migrated to the billed platform, the IPTV subscriber base has only grown to about 1,500.

"We're now looking to raise the subscriber base to over 7,000 and have planned a major campaign in the months ahead," an official said. The IPTV franchise is also expected to launch two new features soon. The "Time Shift TV" feature will enable users to catch up with any time programme that they miss on about 40 favourite channels (seven days of content is stored on a MyWay server for this). Another value-addition is the recording feature that will allow viewers to record their favourite programmes on a memory stick.

It is proposed to offer both features free for the high-end packages, sources said.
CD on self-learning English course released

Tirupur: The Chikkanna Government Arts College, Tirupur, officially released the CD on self-learning English language course, prepared under a UGC-funded project, here recently.

Titled 'Shine with power of English', the CD contains lessons titled under basic conversation skills, listening skills, speaking skills, pronunciation and test yourself.

Releasing the CD, college principal Mohammed Kani said that the contents were prepared with utmost care to make even beginners grasp it easily.


"Instructions have been incorporated in English as well as in Tamil to make this e-tool user-friendly," he added.

A salient feature of the courseware was the embedded facilities to evaluate one-self and identify the areas for improvement as well correct the defects after undergoing the course.

"If correctly followed the instructions in the CD, a student can gain comfortable command over the language within a month," Mr Kani said.

The CDs were distributed free to all students in the first year of their various undergraduate courses in the college.

Members of the research team A.S. Mohanagiri, G. Subramanian, M. Muthukumar, Muralidhara Kannan and Manimekalai, all faculty members in the Department of English, were present.

Hat-trick for missile technologists, armed forces

HYDERABAD:In a hat-trick for missile technologists and the armed forces in the last two days, Agni-I, which can carry nuclear weapons and has range of 700 km, was flight-tested successfully from the Wheeler's Island, off the Orissa coast, on Sunday.
The ship-based Dhanush and Prithvi-II were test-fired in a salvo mode on Saturday.
The medium range surface-to-surface Agni-I, fired at 1.07 hours from a mobile launcher, homed in on the target within a few metres of accuracy as it splashed down in the Bay of Bengal.
The launch was carried out by Army personnel as part of a training exercise.
Best-ever launch
Describing it as one of the best-ever launches, Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) officials said the specialised navigation and guidance system enabled the missile to reach the target with a high degree of accuracy after a 500-second flight duration.
During the course of the flight, it reached an altitude of 300 km and re-entered the atmosphere, withstanding high temperatures of more than 2,000 degree Celsius, as specially-developed heat shields provided protection to the electronic components and the payload.
The radars and electro-optical tracking system along the coast monitored the missile's path and trajectory-related parameters in real time.
Two down-range naval ships, about 700 km from the Wheeler's Island, tracked the missile reaching the target.
The 14-metre tall Agni-I is a single stage, solid-propelled weapon system. It can carry a payload of 1,000 kg.
It is equipped with features to defeat the enemy's anti-ballistic missile system.
The Agni series of missiles form the mainstay of India's nuclear deterrence programme.
The launch operations were monitored by Scientific Adviser to the Defence Minister and DRDO Director-General V.K. Saraswat, Programme Director (Agni) and Director of the Advanced Systems Laboratory Avinash Chander, Director of the Research Centre (Imarat) S.K. Ray, and Director of the Defence Research and Defence Laboratory P. Venugopalan.
Dr. Saraswat congratulated the Army and DRDO teams for the successful launch.

Perambur flyover to be named after Maran

CHENNAI: Chief Minister M. Karunanidhi inaugurated the Perambur flyover on Sunday and announced it would be named after former Union Minister Murasoli Maran.


Speaking at the inauguration, Mr. Karunanidhi said: “Political parties should cooperate with one another and give up animosity, when there is a need for welfare measures for the people.”
He observed that political parties in many States did not nurture animosity when there was a need to take development initiatives. Assuring the people that the government would take measures to construct more bridges in north Chennai, he said that the newly inaugurated flyover would serve as a bridge that would link Tamils. Commending Deputy Chief Minister M.K. Stalin at the function, he said: “I consider him as the Minister who assists me.”

The Rs.51-crore flyover has been constructed under the Jawaharlal Nehru National Urban Renewal Mission with the Centre's grant of 35 per cent of the project cost. The State government has provided 15 per cent of the project cost as an interest-free loan and the rest has been borne by the Corporation of Chennai, he said.

Mr. Stalin said that had other political parties willed, the flyover could have been completed a few years ago.

The flyover would serve as a crucial link according to Niranjan Mardi, Secretary to Government, Municipal Administration and Water Supply Department.
This year, eight locations in north Chennai would have new facilities, said Mayor M. Subramanian.

[font=arial]Tips to Reduce Fuel Consumption & Increase Efficiency

[font=times new roman][/font][font=verdana]Here are some very good tips on improving your vehicle's Fuel Economy / Increase Fuel Efficiency / Mileage. With increasing fuel prices it is becoming more and more prudent to use them.

[font=verdana]Use your gears wisely.Driving in the highest gear possible without labouring the engine is a fuel-efficient way of driving. A vehicle travelling at 60kmph in third gear uses 25 percent more fuel than at the same speed in fifth gear[/font][font=verdana]Drive smoothlyThink ahead! By applying light throttle and avoiding heavy braking, you can reduce both fuel consumption and wear and tear. Try to predict traffic at junctions and when in queuing to avoid accelerating and then braking. Research suggests driving techniques can influence car fuel efficiency by as much as 30 percent.[/font][font=verdana]Switch off your engineThere are two schools of thought on this one. Switching your engine off for short periods of time can actually increase fuel consumption, as it requires more fuel to get the engine started. Also your catalytic converter will no longer be running at full temperature and so your car will be less efficient, increasing the amount of pollution you cause. However if you are stopped for more than a few minutes then your car will simply burn less fuel with the engine stopped.[/font][font=verdana]Drive off promptly to prevent wasting fuelDon't leave your engine running when you first start up. Drive off straight away if you can, but drive gently until the engine has reached its normal operating temperature.

This doesn't increase fuel efficiency as such, but it does mean your engine is switched on for less time.[/font]
[font=verdana]Lighten your loadThink carefully about what you need on a journey.

If you do not need something, do not pack it. Remove roof racks if not needed. The lighter the load, the lower the fuel consumption, and emissions, and the higher the fuel efficiency.[/font]
[font=verdana]Tyres effect fuel efficiencyIt is estimated that about 50% of tyres on the road are under inflated. Aside from increasing the rate of wear, this wastes fuel and decreased your fuel efficiency. Check your tyre pressures every fortnight. Worn tyres will also decrease fuel efficiency (and your safety!), so check the tread regularly. If you are replacing tyres then consider some of the newer 'Eco' tyres that are designed specifically to increase fuel efficiency.[/font][font=verdana]Car WindowsDriving with your windows open drastically reduces your fuel efficiency, far more so than putting the air conditioning on when motorway driving. So in those hot summers(?) preferably keep the windows shut, and the air conditioning on if you want to keep cool. Of course the air conditioning decreases fuel efficiency too, so try not to over use it.[/font][font=verdana]Invest in a new fuel efficient carNew cars come in all shapes and sizes, but it is possible to pick a new car that can greatly reduce your fuel bill, and your fuel emissions.[/font][font=verdana]Size matters. Choose an economical car - small cars use far more fuel efficient and produce lower emissions than large cars.[/font][font=verdana]Drive the most fuel-efficient car that meets your needs. Compare models and classes. Even similarly sized cars can vary in fuel efficiency by up to 45%.[/font][font=verdana]Consider diesel engines (with a particulate trap), and LPG (Liquefied Petroleum Gas) and CNG (Compressed Natural Gas) fuelled cars - all have lower CO2 emissions than standard petrol cars.[/font][font=verdana]Consider 'hybrid' vehicles - they combine a conventional engine with an electric motor and battery. These offer reduced fuel consumption and CO2 with potentially lower emissions of all pollutants.[/font][font=verdana]Diesel EnginesIf your going to buy a diesel, ensure it is a new 'common rail' type, as these are approximately 10% more efficient than older diesels. Also replace (or clean if applicable) air cleaner elements as often as is required by your vehicles servicing schedule.[/font][font=verdana]Regular Maintenance maintains fuel efficiency[/font][font=verdana]Air Filter:One of the most common reasons for a drop in fuel efficiency is a dirty intake filter. This will decrease the amount of air entering the cylinders of the engine resulting in incomplete combustion. Check the filter regularly to ensure that it is clean.[/font][font=verdana]Spark PlugsEnsure your spark plugs are in good condition. Renew the plugs and wires at intervals specified by the owners manual. This will keep all cylinders firing properly resulting in higher efficiency.[/font][font=verdana]Lube Oil:Change the lube oil at intervals specified by the owners manual. Use the recommended oil only especially in newer cars. Use of an engine flush before changing the oil will help to get rid of a lot of the dirt that collects in the engine that a normal oil change will not remove. On older engines it is advisable to use an oil treatment agent.

This basically thickens the oil which creates a better seal between the piston and the liner, preventing blow past and consequent loss of combustion pressure, resulting in higher fuel efficiency.[/font]
[font=verdana]Exhausts alter fuel efficiencyMost cars have special sizes for the exhaust. When cars are reasonably old the silences has to be changed. The garage people always try to fit a size that they have in the garage it self. Which might not be the exact size recommended for the car.

The wrong size a bigger or smaller silencer size effects on the MPG of the car and the HP of the car. It may be cheaper to put another size than your recommended size for your car but on the long run it will cost you in many ways, especially on fuel consumption. Always put the recommended size of the exhaust that is indicated in your car manual because the car company knows how to optimize the performance of your car.[/font]
Polaris Software acquires IndigoTX

CHENNAI: Polaris Software Lab, a financial technology company, on Friday said that it had acquired IndigoTX, a SaaS (software as a service) company that provides GO TX, an enterprise brokerage solution for the securities market on a pay per use model.
Polaris, however, did not disclose the cost of the deal. Company officials indicated that the acquisition would be effected in two-phases. In the initial phase, Polaris would take 51 per cent stake and acquire the balance within a timeframe. The IndigoTX buy, sources said, would help Polaris gain entry into the capital market side of product development space.
According to a release, GO TX brokerage platform is a cutting edge technology platform that runs on a GRID architecture providing tremendous amount of scalability and performance using commodity hardware platforms. The GO TX system allows brokers the luxury of a single platform that provides trading in multiple instruments such as equities, derivatives, mutual funds, commodities and currencies, providing access to multiple markets.
Trading platform
"Our trading platform for brokerages is what ERP (enterprise resource planning) is to manufacturing. With proven technologies in place, we needed a partner who can fuel our growth and also provide access to various global markets. We are excited to join the Polaris family that has a large reach and reputation as a cutting edge solution provider to large financial institutions," says a release quoting Chandra Balaraman, Founder & CEO of IndigoTX.
"Technology investments continue to be the major bottleneck for many brokerage houses that are nurturing big growth ambitions. GO TX leverages modern technology of software as a service (SaaS) to offer trade-based pricing. In effect, brokerage houses can move away from technology related concerns completely and enjoy the freedom of 'pay as you grow'," the release quotes Arun Jain, Chairman and CEO of Polaris Software, as saying.

BSNL employees take casual leave en masse

Tirupur: As many as 228 employees of Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited, attached to 30 telephone exchanges in Tirupur division, went on an en masse casual leave on Friday to protest against the proposed move to implement Sam Pitroda panel's report favouring 30 percent disinvestment, among other suggestions.
The agitating employees, including executive and non-executive cadre officials, also staged a dharna on the BSNL office premises in the city.
The various BSNL employees' unions came together to state that the disinvestment of 30 percent stake of the government in the BSNL would be detrimental to both the organisation as well as the employees.
Voluntary retirement
Similarly, Pitroda panel's suggestion for downsizing the workforce by forcing one lakh employees to go on voluntary retirement was termed by the employees' unions as "anti-employee" and "anti-BSNL" moves.
"There is no need of asking the people to opt for voluntary retirement since 10,000 employees are retiring every year and no fresh recruitment taking place to fill the gaps arisen," the staff pointed out.
Another proposal of Mr. Pitroda that came under severe criticism of the employees was the move to divide BSNL into four business units in the pretext of restructuring the organisation.
According to Pitroda panel, separate business units should be created for fixed access, mobility, enterprise and new businesses.

An annual examination with a difference for CBSE students

CHENNAI: While all the buzz is usually around board examinations of students in classes X and XII, class IX students going to CBSE schools are taking an annual examination of a different nature this year.
For the first time, they did not get examination question papers set by their subject teachers. The CBSE, emphasising the need for uniformity in summative assessment across schools as part of its Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation (CCE), prepared question papers for various subjects and mailed the CDs to schools. The schools also received the answer scheme and marking scheme from the Board.
Schools, which are warming up to the new system, not only have to conduct the examination in a manner specified, but also have to ensure students feel at ease.
According to Seethalakshmi Viswanath, Principal, Amrita Vidyalayam School in Nesapakkam, the question papers have been set rationally, and seek to test students' Higher Order Thinking Skills (HOTS).
"While attempting question papers set by our school teachers, often, only those who work really hard do well. But in these papers, any student who knows the concepts well can do reasonably well irrespective of the effort put in just before the examinations," she says.
Ms. Viswanath also says that schools would be able to build a good question bank that would help test students' conceptual understanding. "Also, besides relieving teachers of the task of setting question papers, it gives them exposure to good question papers that follow desirable standards of testing."
T.M.J. Padmanabhan, Principal, Sindhi Model Senior Secondary School, Kellys, says this is a "creative change" in the examination system. "If the school sets the paper, it becomes predictable at some level. And, teachers may sometimes set papers according to what they have emphasised in class. The new system rules out such possibilities." On whether students were stressed about attempting a paper set by the 'Board', he says that they did not seem frightened or pressured. "In fact, this examination will help schools understand where their students really stand."
Students do seem quite confident. M.S. Himashiny, a class IX student of DAV Girls School, Gopalapuram, says though she and her friends were initially a little anxious about how these question papers might be, after three examinations they are pretty comfortable taking them. "We expected it to be difficult, but actually they were fairly straight forward papers," she says. On what the atmosphere in school was like before the examinations, she says: "After our formative assessment, some of us started relaxing. Teachers would ask us to prepare well only to make sure we don't lose focus. And that helped," she adds.
Charis Daniel, a class VIII student of SBOA School, Anna Nagar, says she looks forward to the annual examination next year. "I think it is good that we have a chance to solve papers set by the CBSE. Now that we do not have a board examination in class X, it will give us practice to take the board examination in class XII."

Google saves face with half-way retreat

Google  chose morals over profits in shutting down its China  portal -- and has already paid a hefty price as a result. Yet the search engine  will keep a toehold in the world's biggest market of internet users, re-routing  searches to Hong Kong and keeping on staff. That means it won't be starting from  scratch if Beijing's censors relax their grip in future.
Google  threatened in January to stop censoring politically sensitive searches at  Beijing's behest. But it has only half pulled out. For now, users can still use  its Hong Kong site -- although there have been reports that the Chinese  authorities are censoring sensitive searches such as the crackdown in Tiananmen  Square in 1989.
That said, Google might have to wait a long time for  Beijing to change its mind and, in the meantime, its presence on the ground  could be a wasting asset. The firm is unlikely to keep much of its 30 percent  market share of advertising revenues in China. Traffic may also fall if Chinese  Internet users tire of slow connection times -- assuming Beijing does not shut  Google out completely.
Remaining employees may not stick around either.  The Silicon Valley firm has been publicly accused of violating a written promise  by government officials. It may be hard to keep the high calibre young engineers  Google sought in the past if they sense their employer has little future in  China.
Currently, China revenue is only 1-2 percent of Google's annual  total. But the growth trajectory -- which Google is now giving up on -- is  exponential. As a result, the market values Chinese Internet companies highly.  Rival Baidu  trades on Nasdaq at 41 times forecast 2011 earnings,  double Google's own rating. Since the U.S. firm said in mid-January that it  intends to stop censoring search results in China, the stock has fallen about 6  percent, wiping away $11.6 billion in market capitalisation. During the same  period, Baidu rose 40 percent, adding $5.5 billion of market capitalisation.
Google would have lost credibility among global users if it didn't leave  China in some form. Pulling out only half way saves the search giant some face,  but with a hefty price tag.
