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
Indian Nationals who die abroad, their mortal remains to be carried back to India for free
Mortal remains of Indian Nationals who die outside India should be bought back to India by Indian carriers, free of charge. (All airlines operating from India or atleast the National Carriers.) Currently the charge to send a dead body from the UAE to India is AED 18 per Kilo. Ticket cost to send a dead body is more than five times the regular fare. Usually if the relatives of the dead do not have funds then the Indian Community raises the required funds to send the body back to India. However, chances are that there could be a delay if necessary funds are not arranged on time. There is a large number of Indian labor force working in the Middle East region. These people do not have any relatives in the country they work and cannot afford a regular airline ticket. God forbid if anyone die's, then the mortal remains are sent to India, subject to collection of funds from company mates or Indian Community. This is an appeal to all Indians to come sign this petition to help families who have lost their loved one. Together we can made a difference
Support for Kartarpur Sahib Corridor
Sikhs sentiments are strongly attached with the long standing demand of Kartarpur Sahib Langa (Corridor) where direct access has to provide to historic Kartarpur Sahib Gurudwara without visa.This is place where Guru Nanak Dev Ji, the Guardian of Humanity, had spent last 18 years of his life and attained salvation. Kartarpur Sahib is situated within Pakistan border with 3-4 KM distance from Dera Baba Nanak,India. Sikhs have emotional involvement with this place but borders have separated humans. Since Pakistani Government has taken step forward and decided to give their approval now we need consent from Indian Prime Minister Narender Modi Ji. Please sign this petition and show your support for this noble cause. This support letter would be sent to Honorable Prime Minister of India. Thanking you in anticipation.
Officially Declare Pakistan as a Terrorist State
Ever since the birth of Pakistan, it has been creating a mess for all of its neighboring countries; be it Afghanistan, Iran or most importantly India. A country that can't feed its own people due to lack of funds but always has money for Nuclear warheads and sponsoring terrorism. A country where UN-designated terrorist lives lavishly and even try to fight elections. A country which took billions of dollars from the United States to counter Terrorism but was a safe haven for the worlds most wanted terrorist as he was shielded by their own army. A country that shields worlds well-known, terrorists ... A country that is not safe for its citizens but its a heaven for Terrorists. Its high time we realize the facts and stop doing the mistakes we have been doing for over 70 years. India foolishly offered Pakistan the status of Most Favored Nation for over 20+ years, while in return we were backstabbed on multiple occasions. America offered Pakistan a huge amount of money and weapons to counter Terrorism but instead, they shielded worlds most wanted, terrorists. We need to take Actions, and the Action Begins here. I request the Indian and American Governments along with the UN and UNSC to take these major steps. Terrorism has to end. Sign this petition and share it with your friends and families to make the world a safer place.
Withdraw Proposed Changes for Indian Passport. Orange Passport is Discriminatory.
We have noticed the government's decision to introduce two changes in the Indian Passport.For Non Resident Indians, their passport is the only document to show their address, father’s name, mother's name or spouse’s name. Many countries are demanding all these information for issuing visit and resident visas. The decision to do away with the last page of the passport which shows all these vital information will create a lot of inconveniences for NRIs.So I strongly feel that the government should NOT implement the decision. It is also not fair to segregate citizens based on their emigration status by issuing an Orange Passport. This decision is discriminatory and against human dignity. This will create a biased view of the different classes of NRIs seeking better pastures outside the country. We therefore request you to withdraw these proposals altogether.
Fight Against Injustice- Stand With Ritu Jaiswal
In a series of unprecedented events- the iron lady of our Bihar who lately gained immense recognition for leaving behind the fine luxuries of city life and decided to dedicate her life towards the upliftment of Singhwahini Panchayat, Sitamarhi Bihar- Ritu Jaiswal (Mukhiya) has been wrongly accused of the Prevention of Atrocities SC/ST Act. Considering the unfairly stringent provisions which follow under the law- she along with her team will be facing imprisonment or legal custody very soon. Ritu Jaiswal is widely recognised for the extra ordinary work she has done towards the betterment of Singhwahini Panchayat. Be it from bringing electricity to the place back in 2016 to declaring the entire Panchayat Open Defecation Free in the same year. We present this news with the utmost sadness that such selflessness and dedication towards social betterment is met unfairly. The accusations are briefly wrong and serve as a tool towards the benefit of corrupt local politicians and goons. Here’s a series of events which took place. RItu Jaiswal received a complaint for harassment against a local goon- Virendra Ram (who’s infamous for drug peddling and Sand Trafficking). When she arrived at the spot along with her team- she was mobbed and threatened with unlicensed arms and weapons. The notorious goon along with his accomplices threatened her to leave the spot immediately stating that otherwise he will (taking advantage of his caste) book her under the SC/ST or Dalit Act. After suppressing the matter, Ritu had to flee the place considering the threat to her life. Later on, the goons proceeded to the local Dalit Station and accused her of violating the status of Dalits. The accusation under SC/ST act leads to direct arrest i.e. without any substantial evidence. Hence, it proves to be a sure shot method to defame any individual without considering the seriousness of their offence. Ritu’s work clearly suggest that her efforts are for the poor and un-prejudiced. Now be it for the Dalits or General. She believes in equality and her work clearly glorifies the same. She’s highly vocal about the Rights for Minorities and believes that their upliftment can be brought through working on Education and Job Opportunities rather than creating such laws which only proceed to create more unequality and tension in the society. Though we never present our statistics based on caste or religion, such events force us to do so. Therefore- last year she has educated over 500 students from minorities, has planted over 53 solar water pumps, constructed over 2000 toilets, skill training and job opportunites for over 20 girls. As a society, it’s our core responsibility that we raise our voices against such injustice and show our support to people who work on ground level and depict an infinite sense of selflessness and hope.
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

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.

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
