Assam: Rhino numbers rise, but rampant poaching continues

Recommended Posts

akhilesh yadav

The forest department’s biannual census in Kaziranga National Park shows a healthy upswing in the rhino population — from 2,330 two years ago to 2,401 in 2015 — although a hundred of these majestic endangered animals fell to poachers’ bullets for their prized horn that fetches millions of dollars in the clandestine international animal parts market.

 

 

At the same time, a reply to a right to information (RTI) application reveals that the state hasn’t been able to convict a single of the 243 people arrested for poaching since 2009.

RTIs punch holes in Prakash Javadekar's claims on growing rhino count

 

NEW DELHI: Environment minister Prakash Javadekar's claim that all's well with the country's rhinoceros population is only half the story. While the population of the one-horned rhinoceros is on the rise -- 2,401 at the most recent count undertaken in March -- instances of poaching too have increased, with nine rhinos being killed by poachers in the first 100 days of this year.

      I was working for a Bangalore based IT company between 1999 and 2004. I left the organization on 31-mar-2004. I didn't remember whether I withdrew my EPF amount of the organization. But I am sure I didn't transfer the amount to my next employer. Of late, I applied for my EPF withdrawal through the Bangalore organization. I got a letter from EPF Office, K.R. Puram, Bangalore stating that the claim was settled on 24-Jun-04. Unfortunately I am not able to recall it. I checked my ICICI bank transaction history of 2004. I didn't find any clue of having received the EPF amount. Now I have the following queries.
      1) The claim was settled within three months since I left the Bangalore Organization (31-Mar-2004). I was told that if someone wanted to withdraw their EPF before retirement, they need to wait for a few months since they left the organization and only the claim can be processed. In my case, it had been settled within three month since I left the Bangalore organization. Is it possible?
      2) Now I want to know the full details of My EPF account of the Bangalore organization like what was the balance amount available in the account when I left the organization and If the settlement is done, how the EPF amount was sent to me (through DD/directly credited in my bank account). How to get this details?
       
      Please help me. I am looking forward to response

      Hello,
      The company for which I was working has been closed. I had applied for my PF money. Since nobody is available in the company now, I couldn't get the employer signature in the PF application form.
       
      But in the PF office they said they haven't received any 'Closure Certificate' from the company. So they sent my claim form to my employer address.
       
      After one month, I am unaware of the status of my application. The web site's "Know your Claim Status" section doesn't work. When I try to call the office, there is no response.
       
      What do I do?
