Free Education For Children of India's Martyrs

Martyrs' families are losing their sole bread earner in order to save our lives. We can lead safe, secure lives because of them. If Indian government leaders, or any Indian is sleeping peacefully then the credit goes only to these soldiers. It is the Indian government's foremost duty to help the children of India's martyrs graduate, i.e. provide them free of cost education. Their sacrifice is priceless. These kids have no one to support their dreams, they've lost their fathers so that India could be safe. Providing a one time compensation is not enough, rather it is insulting their sacrifice. These children deserve constant support in order to give wings to their dreams.

Passport for my daughter with mother´s name

I am a single parent. My Husband abandoned my daughter and me when she was born just because she was a girl. He never looked back and doesn’t even care whether we’re dead or alive.  Recently, I applied for the passport of my daughter. My daughter doesn’t want her father’s name on the document. Our application was denied and we were told that both names are required. My daughter did her schooling with my name only. Her voter ID card, Aadhar card and bank account have my name. Why was only the passport denied?  My daughter and I were forced to go through mental agony and torture. We tried to convince the passport officer, wrote letters, met senior officers but our request was denied. In the end we were forced to include his name. Every time my daughter looks at her Passport, she sees the name of a person who hurt her, who abandoned her. Single fathers and mothers face several hardships. Often there is a traumatic story behind the reason we are single. We have to work extra-hard to support our children and be there for them. The judiciary has given progressive judgments that say that the Father’s name is not required. My humble request is for the Prime Minister and the Ministry of Home Affairs to look into this matter and help single parents - fathers and mothers, so that they don’t have to go through this agony.

.@SushmaSwaraj @MEAQuery @passportsevamea: Help me get a passport for my minor son

Dear Madam, After a lot of failed attempts since past 3 years consistently; I have decided to write this petition in order to get permission granted to acquire a passport for my son. I am a single parent of a 10 year old boy. I was married to an abusive man who did not spare me even during my pregnancy. I some how managed to come back to my parents home after 3 months while pregnant with my unborn child and firmly opted not to go to that man ever again. To which he retaliated by filing for the custody of my baby and harassed me for 6 years. Despite all his slanders and attempts to harass me I won the case since I was abused and also because my ex had not given any child support, maintenance or alimony. The man I was married to lives in Dubai currently. Its been 4 years now, he has not gained access to visit my son. Now he is married for the 3rd time and has a family of his own. He has no contact with my son what so ever, nor does he make any effort to visit him. Kindly consider my petition to help me get a passport for my son, it would mean a lot to the little one. Thank You.

Help my disabled daughters get passports

For 40 years we have been taking care of our disabled daughters. I am 70 and my husband is 75. We don’t know how much longer we can take care of them. My younger daughter R. Sarvani  is 90% disabled and cannot move. The elder daughter R. Gayathridevi is 72% disabled, when she walks, she often slips and falls and needs constant assistance. Our sons are settled in the US and Canada. They would like to take care of their sisters when we cannot. Unfortunately we have not been able to apply for a passport due to my daughters’ severe physical disabilities..   The nearest Passport Seva Kendra is 110 km away from our residence and my daughters have to be personally present in order to apply. Travelling by bus or train is very hard for them. Due to our old age, my husband and me are also not able to help them travel. It is our humble and earnest appeal to Smt Sushma Swaraj and the Ministry of External Affairs to help us get passports for our daughters without insisting their physical presence at Passport Seva Centre distantly located. I have faith that Smt Sushma Swaraj and the Ministry of External Affairs will listen to our request and help us get passports. Sign our petition and help us get the passports for our daughters. - Subbalakshmi & RS Rallapalli

1 crore + Govt Job + Kids Education to the families of martyrs in forces

We see very often the people in forces be it Army or Police sacrifice their lives for our safety. Every time there is an event like this, we feel anger , sad, protest , comments on FB, Twitter, have lunch discussions and then slowly life moves on. We forget the incidence and move on.  The most hurt is the family of the brave heart who sacrificed the life for our country. They have to lead a life of misery with little pension or fund money or the amount which is declared by the govt for the martyrs. When we as citizens are ready to spend money on swach bharat by giving extra as taxes, we are ready to give gifts and amounts to the players who win in different competition representing country.  Why are we not ready to pay a amount to the family of brave heart so that they are not miserable financially. We request the Prime Minister of India to declare a policy of Policy of 1 crore + Govt Job + Kids Education to the families of martyrs in forces who do Supreme Sacrifice for the country in any of the forces in India.   Thanks!!

Single-mother's plight to get passport for minor child without father's consent

I applied for son's passport in June 2015. Visited PSK twice with necessary documents but at the end of 2nd appointment was told to bring an affidavit (annex G) attested by first class judicial magistrate. The time, money and energy spent in getting the affidavit attested has been fruitless! Visited both Dy. Commissioner's and Addl. Dy Commissioner's offices for attestation and have returned empty-handed every time! I was unofficially told that no passport-related documents are being attested by officials for reasons beyond my comprehension. Called the passport helpline and was told to instead submit annex H with spouse's consent. I have had a traumatic time since June 2015 and it doesn't seem to have an end! It looks like I may not be able to make a passport for my child ever and this is a loss on so many levels - educational, professional and recreational. Since my divorce in 2014, my ex-husband has chosen not to keep in touch with us or involve himself in the child's upbringing. I respect his decision because by the grace of God, I am in a position to take care of my child without spousal support. I have not claimed alimony and have ensured that my child is nurtured in a holistic manner. Divorce order states that I have sole custody and am legal guardian. It is also likely that my child has forgotten his father's face. Why is the passport application then being treated as one where the father has not given consent? (My first communication to him since my divorce in 2014, requesting for consent, has been met with silence). I am at wits end because I have had to forgo international professional opportunities for self and educational opportunities for my child. Even on a recreational front, I have not been able to plan for international holidays for want of his passport. Every time my son mentions that it would be a great experience to meet Santa Claus in the North Pole or  visit Legoland in Germany, I have stopped short of shutting myself up and crying. I feel that helpless because I am failing not only as a mother but also, from a legal standpoint, as his guardian and one who has his sole custody. All I seek is for the passport authorities to consider the fact that I am a single mother and  the sole custodian of my child (divorce decree) and process his passport application with only my signature. If as a mother, I do not have the best interests of my child at heart, who would?!

Builders of Dwarakamai layout forcefully depriving basic amenities to Villa owners

We are residents of Dwarakamai Layout at ECC Road Whitefield, Bangalore. We have spent all our lifetime saving to buy a villa in Dwarakamai Layout, but have been staying in this layout with no peace of mind. Due to the feudalistic mindset of the builder, we residents are being put to immense hardship for no faults of ours. Even after 8 years of selling the first villa, the builder has not formed the Association. Fed up with harassment and illegitimate claim for money from the builder, all the 14 owners who bought the villas from builder got together and formed Dwarakamai Home Owners Association. After that, the builder forcefully locked the common area Water Treatment Plant (WTP), Street lights, Diesel Generator, Intercom with the motive to harass the residents and we are without water for more than a month. The builder has already collected money from us during Sale of Villa for construction of the common area amenities like WTP, Street Lights, Diesel Generator, Children Park and now forcefully denying us access by locking it. Infact, as per Sale Deed, they should have constructed Swimming Pool and Clubhouse, that is non-existent till date. Jatti Engineering India Pvt. Ltd. (JEIPL, the builder, represented by its director Mr. D. B. Jatti and Smt. Lakshmi D. Jatti) is the builder for Dwarakamai Layout, Sy. No. 51, ECC Road, Whitefield. The builder got Bangalore Development Authority (BDA) approval for the layout bearing no. BDA/TPM/PL-24/04-05 on 18/05/2005 and BDA also issued an Endorsement dated 06/09/2006. The first Villa was sold in Mar 2009. Ever since the builder JEIPL has been maintaining it. The builder has never been transparent with respect to maintenance charge, recruitment of maintenance staff and their operation. Builder has been harassing each Villa Owner, their kids, their parents individually. Some owners were not allowed to walk or jog in the internal road, kids are not allowed to cycle. They put autocratic rules like Utility vehicles like Gas, airport Taxi are not allowed inside the premises, car lights should be switched OFF while entering the premises, fees to be paid to use the park, internal road for parking. The builder had even cut DG, water of few Villa owners for not following these autocratic rules, even though the residents have been regularly paying maintenance. They claim to hail from prestigious and reputed family and are proud to have us stay on their Eco-Friendly property but they enjoy creating social divides and misunderstandings between the owners. It’s not at all congenial to live and there is no positive energy being enthused from builders. They are manipulative and play one owner against the other. Builder stays in the layout and is illegally claiming ownership of the common area, they have illegally encroached the internal road between Villa 7 and Villa 8 and built a private garden for their exclusive usage. They have dumped construction material between Villa 12 and Villa 14 that is causing lot of inconvenience to the residents. The builder is badly maintaining the sewerage, garbage disposal area, park causing bad smell and has become a breeding ground for mosquitoes, snakes. Even after 8 years of sale of first villa, the builder is not cooperating to form Association. Builder has never shared with us the audited account report for the maintenance. When we asked them regarding association formation, instead of cooperating, they sent us illegal demand notice for maintenance payment dated back to 2012, even though residents has paid maintenance regularly.  Fed up with these autocratic and authoritative style of functioning of the builder, all the Villa owners joined together and formed Dwarakamai Home Owners Association (DHOA) on 22nd July 2017 with Registration no. SOR-3/294/2017-18. The builder has been dead against it and has illegally locked the Water plant, Diesel Generator, Intercom and Street Light power. Builder threatens to De-register the association and even brought rowdies to scare us (we have CCTV footage of the same). Association has raised a complaint with BBMP Joint Commissioner, Mahadevpura Zone on 07/08/2017.  The association have got an injunction order from the Honorable Civil Court (Filing No. – OS/739/2017 and Registration No. – OS/712/2017 dated 04/08/2017) against the builder, JEIPL for not interfering and disrupting the basic amenities like electricity, water, sewerage, DG etc. Still the builder is not cooperating to connect water, DG, intercom. Association has sent the builder multiple request for discussion on the issue, but the builder didn’t bother to cooperate. Fed up, Association has filed a harassment complaint with Whitefield Police Station  on 12/08/2017 for disobeying the orders for the Honorable High Court and the builder still continues to disrupt water, DG, intercom,common area street lights. The builder is not even cooperating with police.Builder is creating problem with security agency who have been legally appointed by the Association to maintain the layout.  We want Builder should not disrupt Association's work on maintaining the amenities and common area facilities and stop harassing each villa owners mentally. Please join us and support this case else we common people will loose faith from the legal system of India and our hard earn money will go in vain. Regards, Dwarakamai Home Owners Association Sy 51 & 51/1 ECC Road, Whitefield, Bengaluru 560066

EXTEND THE AGE LIMIT OF UPSC CDS AND CAPF UPTO 27 YEARS

I Love my country and I Love my Indian Army. I am 25 years old and I want UPSC should extend the age of CDS and CAPF Examinations to 27 years because many worthy candidates or aspirants will be benefited from this decision. When UPSC can extend the age of civil services examination to 32 years and SSC can do upto 30 years, then why not UPSC CDS and CAPF ? Indian Armed forces has entry up to 27 years for TGC(technical graduate scheme), AEC(Army education corp) and JAG. There are thousands of youngsters like me, who wants to serve the Armed Forces with great honesty and loyalty but due to age factor we cannot apply anymore. Yes, we did faced SSB many times but still the feeling is same as it was in childhood of wearing the uniform and to serve my great nation. Please feel the passion which we Youths have for country. Please sign my petition. Make it happen. JAI HIND TO ALL THE VETERANS AND MY FELLOW COUNTRYMEN
