According to information obtained under RTI by Desai, the central government has spent Rs 632.18 crore on print media, Rs 475.11 crore on electronic media and Rs 208.54 crore on outdoor media. The information on how much money spent on the advertisement on foreign media is not available with the Bureau of Outreach and Communication.

"It is shocking to see that central government spent almost Rs 1315.83 crore. Which means the government spends Rs 3.65 crore per day. That's a huge amount but they have given just Rs 600 crore to Kerala state which is in distress due to floods," said Desai.

Comprehensive Sexuality Education soon!

Replying to an RTI query, ministry’s central public information officer (CPIO) Anand Prakash, also the deputy secretary, informed that he had directed the department of school education to take necessary action on the issues related to MHRD urgently, as directed by Madras HC. He also sent a copy of his reply to Dr Indrajit Khandekar, professor and in-charge of Clinical Forensic Medicine Unit (CFMU) at Mahatma Gandhi Institute of Medical Sciences (MGIMS), Sevagram. 
In the order, justice N Kirubalan had directed the central government to take a decision to introduce free and compulsory comprehensive sexuality education at the high school level. It should be done to enable students to understand gender identity, sexuality, age-related physical changes and problems, and to protect themselves from sexual advances and abuses. “India has its commitment under United Nations International Conference on Population and Development (ICPD) Agenda 1994, affirming the sexual and reproductive rights (SRRs) of adolescents and young people as per Article 253 of the Constitution of India,” the judge had said.

    3 officers out of 122 passed police academy exam of 2016 batch of IPS officers

      Of the 122 IPS officers, 119 failed in one or more subjects. The batch has a total of 136 officers, including 14 from foreign police forces. Despite failing in the exam, the officers graduated and are now probationers in their respective cadres.

    They may be emerging as future police bosses in their respective states, but an overwhelming majority of Indian Police Service (IPS) officers of the 2016 regular recruit (RR) batch failed to pass the necessary exams they took before graduating from the Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel National Police Academy (SVPNPA) in Hyderabad.

    Of the 122 IPS officers, 119 failed in one or more subjects. The batch has a total of 136 officers, including 14 from foreign police forces. Despite failing in the exam, the officers graduated and are now probationers in their respective cadres. But they will have to pass in each subject and will be allowed three attempts to clear the exams. If an officer fails to clear the exams, he/she cannot remain in the service.

    While IAS officers are trained at the Lal Bahadur Shashtri National Academy of Administration in Mussoorie, IPS officers get their training at SVPNPA. In the 2016 batch, two IPS officers have failed to graduate from the academy.
    Of the total 136 officers, 133 failed in one or more subjects, including Indian Penal Code (IPC) and Criminal Procedure Code (CrPC). The IPS probationers who failed included those who had received medals and trophies at the passing out parade in October which was attended by Union home minister Rajnath Singh.

    All the foreign police officers failed the exams.

    An IPS probationer told TOI that the officers are now re-appearing in exams in which they failed during the phase 2 training. "This is an abnormal result which has not happened in the academy's history. Failing in exams is not new. But mass failure is a big thing," he said, adding that 90% of the probationers had failed in basic courses like law and order and internal security.

    The probationer said that marks obtained during training are counted towards seniority and failure in subjects implies a loss of seniority.

    TOI is in possession of the controller of examination's list of the 2016 RR batch IPS officers and the subjects in which they failed. Emails sent to the SVPNPA director and administrator remained unanswered.

    Let us hope, that shortly Govt either scrap this examination thrash, or transfer the concerned Principal for not  making everyone pass or they may start lobbying for such pass as part of their training further.
