Petition to Narendra Modi (Prime Minister of India), Maneka Gandhi, Shashi Tharoor

Demanding stringent laws to protect Women and bring their violators to instant justice

As a Daughter of India (sometimes it's hard to take that as a compliment), I urge everyone of you to look into Nancy Jha's case and sign this petition. Nancy, a 12 year innocent girl from Bihar was brutally killed by her own uncles in an acid attack. The police won't budge initially and had been suspended on grounds of negligence. An SIT team had to be set up to probe into the case. Though the accused turned themselves in to the police hoping for lesser punishment, the manner in which they killed the innocent and the reasons behind are spine chilling and deserve no forgiveness. It's unfortunate how India has to mourn a daughter lost every day. To know what happened with Nancy, let me paint a picture for you. She was gang raped (which is still to be made official), her wrists and throat were slit and acid was poured into her body which led to her fateful death. Her body was found in an unspeakable condition just a mile away from her home, leaving her family devastated. And this happens not a week after another infant was thrown out of a moving vehicle and killed by some rapists, and her 19 year old mother raped to rags. No one should ever go through this again! Today it's them, tomorrow it can be a dear one, but India stands on the spirit of treating everyone with utmost respect. Rape and murder is not the culture of India. We do not tolerate these crimes here. So I want you to come forward and sign this petition, so our PM, Narendra Modi can resolve this issue by escalating it and making stricter laws to punish the culprits. It's the only way to minimize and prevent future crimes at this level. Thank you! Sincerely Daughter Of India

Petition to Mr. Narendra Modi, PMO India, Hon'ble Shri PRANAB MUKHERJEE, Supreme Court of India, Sh. Gajapathi Raju, Mr. Gajapathi Raju, Ministry of Civil Aviation, Airport Authority of India

Change in Arbitrary Internship Policies in Government Offices

First of all Greeting for the day! I am Shashank Shekhar Pandey , 3rd year student of Symbiosis Law School Noida. Today I am addressing this petition to you all as my belief on the current system of governance has been distorted by the reply that I got from one of the "Miniratna" Enterprise i.e. Airport Authority of India. This incident happened around 1 PM today when I called the HR department of Airport Authority of India to Inquire about the procedure of how to apply for an internship in Legal Department as I was very keen to work with the said authority. The reply I got from the officer on the other side was in form of a question "Do you have any reference?". Further, I replied it in a negative as I and none of my family members do have any contact in Airports Authority of India. Furthermore, He went on and told me "We do not give Internships without any reference". This statement of the officer has sent me to a shock and my belief on the governance and laws in this country has been destroyed. By this Petition, I want to attract your attention towards such practices happening across the country in many other offices and we the people who do not have "Contacts" and "References" are not getting Equal Opportunities. This is prima facie violation of our right to equality given to us under the Indian Constitution itself. The AAI is not having a set parameter for providing internship but the HR Policy says only for people with a reference can get the work done. And the current government talks about providing equal opportunity to all, to reduce corruption, to promote skill India and what not. But they fail to understand that the problem is in the machinery and we have to feed the virus so that our lives can be less cumbersome. All I aim through this petition is to question the government on the issue of policy making and existence of such arbitrary rules in the government enterprises.  Sir, with due respect, I want you to ask you all through this petition; Aren't such practices such as one mentioned above is promoting corruption? How will we hone our skill as students or professionals if every other office starts giving the reason that, if you do not have a reference then you are not entitled to an internship? Isn't It high time to move on from such contact approach to rather an approach where everyone gets a fair opportunity to work with such offices and hone their skills.  Also, I would like the government to promote such internship programs in each field where everyone gets an equal opportunity and also gets a first-hand experience of how the administration or governance works? How do these enterprises function? How does machinery and offices function? As after promoting such programs we can develop database as well of the people having sufficient skills and they can be further helpful to hone skills of other people and thus improving the Human Capital of this country. I could go on and on but there are contraints here , I wish all of you see the motive behind this and will support this cause selflessly. If I get your support in this I will be forever grateful to you all. Thanks

Petition to Election Commission of INDIA, Pmo, President of India, Prime Minister of India

Bring back the ballot paper and stop using EVMs in Elections

Here are my points regarding my petition & why Ballot Papers are better than EVM:- Today in all over the world Ballot paper is the most reliable method for voting. Many countries like Japan, US, Germany, Netherlands etc had refused to use EVM. After spending close to $75 million on its EVMs, Ireland found them to be so insecure they literally scrapped them. If people start believing that EVM are fishy or fraud happening in the election then it's very bad sign for democracy.  The problems with EVM security have been widely known since the large-scale irregularities in Florida during the 2000 US elections. Many countries have moved to get rid of them. In 2006 Dutch TV aired a documentary showing how easy it was to hack the EVMs that were about to be used in their general election. The machines were subsequently withdrawn and the Netherlands went back to paper ballots. Ballot papers can’t be hacked like EVMs. One can easily change thousand of votes in EVM withing few minutes. People can’t complain that our vote gone to other candidates as ballot papers are not virtual. Ballot papers method may take few extra time on the day of counting but in India, we already spent months in elections and it happens in several stages so for the sake of transparency we can give some time. Supreme Court of India had also asked for EC for a plan on EVMs with the paper trail:- A bench, comprising Justices Ranjan Gogoi and L Nageshwara Rao ordered: “… we direct the Election Commission to bring on record the approximate time within which the entire system of VVPAT can be introduced, subject to the grant of sanction and release of funds as and when required.” “We also request the Solicitor General of India to assist the court in so far as sanction and release of funds is concerned. List the matter after eight weeks,” the bench said. News Link - https://goo.gl/knfw7L  You can watch this video (This explanatory video shows EVMs can easily be manipulated) Youtube Video Link - https://goo.gl/C67am2 Therefore I want from to Election commission of India to stop using EVM and start using Paper Ballot like many countries did. I appeal every political party & people to raise voice against EVMs.

Petition to Mr. Narendra Modi, Hon'ble Prime Minister of India

Petition to control the compounding fee hike by Pvt. Schools. Plz sign-in and share others

Esteemed Sir, Now a days the monthly Tuition Fee charges by Pvt. Schools / Education Institutions are very very huge which is non-bearable by Upper Middle Class people to Lower Class People. when the fee charged by Pvt.Schools are started from Rs.40,000/- P.A. from LKG Class student now, his tuition fee will be Rs.2,06,020/- p.a. in class X, and Rs.2,20,000/- p.a. in class XI if it continues with present compounding % Hike rate. In fact, the earning of a genuine white money income person will hike on this rate? or, schools are paying salary to their employees/teachers in this growth rate? Then why there's no any breaking policy in this system? The collections made by Schools in different form (In terms of monthly tuition fees/Book Selling / Annual Function / Smart Class / Activity fees),is really expended in appropriate manner ?? If some developed schools and its each Managing Body would inspected through CBI, the fact would come to public. Is the School Trust is helping to develop the Nation or, they individually developing themselves using Public Money and Property.  !!! First of all I'ld suggest the DAV Public School, Unit-8, Bhubaneswar and its Trustees would investigated through CBI. In fact, Now Schools are enhancing the fees minimum 15% each year (on previous year fees) on compounding way. Moreover when a child jumps from one class slab to other class slab, the hike percentage is crossing 22 to 30% on which coming years hike will be calculated. Plz see the picture above "Tuition Fee matrix" of a School is clearly presented here, when this year LKG going child is paying Rs.36,840/- per annum, it will be Rs.2,06,020 p.a. when he will reach in Class X. and Rs.2,20,000/- p.a. on Class XI. Now all most all citizens even in lower class people wants to give good education to his son/daughter to be at par with competitive educated society. So a lower income citizen also seeking a good schooling for his/her child in terms of sacrificing his life time effort and remaining in hungry also.  But our Education System is like this: The System of govt. Schools affiliated to State Board is very poor and administration is very poor. Teachers in Govt. Schools are busy with hesitation or, pvt. tuition due to failure of State Govt. Mechanism. Now all most all parents are eager to admit their child in CBSE/ICSE affiliated Schools. But it's found very rare Central Govt. Schools and Heavy rush in these schools.  So most of us are compelled to admit their child in Pvt. Schools affiliated to CBSE/ICSE. And all most all such School Management are running their Schools as Business Centre. Neither there is direct control by State Govt. nor by Central Govt. so these school management are free to accumulate their Black money in the name of giving Quality Education. They are exploiting public (those wards are admitted in these schools) in the name of Quality Education, in the name of development of Infrastructure, in the name of salary to the teachers. In practical, is this happening in the hike rate of Fee they are collecting from Parents? Who is looking after this ? They have designed their system to hike the fees on compounding percentage of previous year tuition fee. Cleverly the schools are picking up some parents as PTCC through lottery system each year and very rare meeting with them and object is to pass the fee hike proposal in PTCC Meeting in the end of the education year for coming year. Now Schools are in a trend to hike min.15% hike on last year tuition compounding fees. Also it's 20 to 30% compounding hike when a student jumps from one slab to another class slab. (ie. lkg,ukg: Slab-1 to Std.I-III: Slab-2, Std.IV,V: Slab-3, Std.VI to St.VIII: Slab4, Std.IX & X: Slab5,  Std.XI : Slab6 and Std.XI,Sc. is Slab7) School Authorities are also playing game in this PTCC Meeting keeping in their hand  in different form to  Higher Secondary PTCC representatives as they have in their mind to Quit within couple of years and their child should not targeted by the School. In fact, the compounding fee hike is  coming burden to the parents admitting their child in lower classes. PTCC Members are not acting as Parents Representative but they are playing role to raise their hand being influenced by School. And we must consider,  within a year how outside person can understand the school account system? It's also too much time taking and professionalism required to investigate all those that's why PTCC Representatives compels to sign in the fee enhance memorandum. If such situation continues, time will come when it'll cross the situation like "Farmers Suicide in every state" Now Parents are started suicide for their children. Its colorising as Farmers Suicide now. Is the income of a person hikes in the rate school is taking fees? If it continues what a parent can do for his child for his Higher Studies..? On this situation Younger Generation also refusing to get marry and Lower middle or Middle class people fearing to bring their new generation seeing this Money Exploitation in the name of Quality Education.  Now people have hope only our Honb'le Prime Minister Mr. Narenda Modi who is constantly fighting to eradicate corruption from the country and trying to give good governance to the people of India. Considering the situation repetitive petitions may please forwarded to our Honb'le Prime Minister to form a Central Regulatory Authority to control Pvt.
