Pradhan Mantri Ujjwala Yojana – Free LPG Connection Scheme for BPL Families

Indian Government is all set to launch a new mega social welfare scheme on 1st May. Narendra Modi government is launching Pradhan Mantri Ujjwala Yojana, a LPG connection distribution scheme.

Narendra Modi Government under the Pradhan Mantri Ujjwala Yojana has planned to provide free LPG connections to BPL (Below Poverty Line) households in India. The central government has set a target of distributing free LPG connections to 5 crore BPL households across the country.

The scheme will be implemented over three years starting from 2016-17 to 2018-19. For the financial year 2016-17 alone, the central government has set aside a budget of Rs. 2000 Crores to distribute free LPG connection to 1.5 Crore BPL families.

A total budget provision of Rs. 8000 Crores have been made by the central government for implementation of the Ujjwala Yojana over three years. State government and union territories will help in identification of eligible BPL households for the scheme.


Free LPG Connection Scheme for BPL Families

The main objective of the Pradhan Mantri Ujjwala Yojana is not just the distribution of free LPG connection but also empowering women in rural areas and protecting their health. Cutting short the indoor as well as outdoor pollution are also among the long term goals of the scheme that can be fulfilled. If the scheme is implemented successfully, it will also help reducing the number of diseases in children and women caused due to burning of unclean fossil fuel in households.

A financial assistance of Rs. 1600 will be provided to each BPL beneficiary under the scheme to purchase LPG connection. The assistance would be given only in the name of women person in the household in whose name the LPG connection is to be purchased. EMI facility will also be provided to beneficiaries to buy stove and refill cylinder.

Funding of the scheme will come from the money saved through “Give-it-up” campaign in LPG subsidies. Since the launch of campaign in January 2015, about 1.13 Crore LPG subscribers have voluntarily have given up the LPG subsidy and buying the LPG cylinder at market price. This way, the central government has also saved thousands of Crores.

There are about 16.64 crore LPG subscribers in the country at present out of which most are in Urban and Semi Urban areas.Rural areas in the country are still using fossil fuel for cooking food which is dangerous for both health and environment. Rural areas in the country have very limited access to the LPG.

Talking about the current state of LPG in India, the current total requirement is 21 million tonne out of which India imports about 40% or about 8.5 million tonne. The import may reach to 50-55% if the Ujjwala Yojana is implemented successfully and 5 crore new subscribers are added.

You can also read Pradhan Mantri Ujjwala Yojana in Hindi with complete details about the scheme.

Overall, the scheme can prove to be a great initiative by the Narendra Modi government which will not only empower women belonging to the poorest households in India but also protect their health and of their children.

Content Providers in India

Information about anything and everything that anyone needs is widely available on the net. Unlike the bygone days, there is no need to keep hordes of books and encyclopedia or subscribe to umpteen newspapers and magazines for eliciting information. As everything is so easily available on the net, it does seem that the work of the common man is easy. However, as the content or information is so easily available and also because of the sheer volume of the content, which makes it impossible to either verify its accuracy, or to actually search for the correct information, content writers in India are in a heavy demand. Web content writers are the people who, for a fee, start writing on any particular given topic, after conducting an extensive research and verifying the authenticity of the information.
content writer

In the fast paced life, these days, it seems to be almost impossible for any person to spend so much of time in research and writing down the content, and as the saying goes, ‘necessity is the mother of invention’, it is not surprising that a new job is available for many people. This is the job of a content writer or content provider.

After an exhaustive research, spanning scores of websites and/or some books or magazines, content providers give out the content or information to the clients, according to their necessity.

content writer in india


Contentmart, a content writing service is the first Indian company, employing Indian freelance writers. Contentmart is definitely a perfect meeting place between writers and clients, as they deal with only content writing assignments and they ensure maximum client satisfaction, through almost accurate information being given to the clients.

Strong anti-plagiarism codes are incorporated into the Contentmart system, ensuring almost complete accuracy and originality of the content. Only after it has been given the final green signal by Contentmart, is it sent to the client, which ensures high satisfaction from the client.

How to be self-reliant in studies

According to the Merriam Webster dictionary, self-reliant means confident in your own abilities and able to do things for yourself; not needing help from other people.

Learning to be self-reliant takes time, patience and perseverance. Self-reliance is something that you develop in stages as you get older, learn from experience, and gradually become more and more independent.

In order to take on larger responsibilities, you have to know how to carry out those responsibilities, which are handed to you. In some of the societies, the youth continue to let parents do things for them, with the excuse that they just don’t know how to do those things themselves. They often turn to their parents to also make decisions for them, for the same reason. In schools too, teachers burden the students with tests & assignments, one after another, considering that multiple exposure would get them to learn a topic/ subject. While this may work for someone who is able to manage his or her own schedule, but for someone who is yet to learn to manage things, this poses a serious challenge. Not only do they fare miserably in the assessments, it impacts them in such a way that they may tend to feel demoralized and start believing themselves to be unable to cope with the rigour of studying.
self-reliant in studies

With the advent of the Internet, the online learning platforms have taken centerstage. There are numerous site to which provide e-learning solution to students. This helps people of all types since they can choose to study at their own time and at their own pace. It makes the student smarter and technologically sound. An e-learning solution is pocket friendly and is in accordance to the exam pattern of the school. More often than not, they are arranged in a structured fashion like NCERT study material class 9 for all subjects and other classes.

With e-learning, one can easily become self-reliant and not be dependent on others. Poor understanding, misplaced focus, lack of time and clear concepts are some of the other common issues faced by the students; and can be easily addressed by subscribing to some e-learning framework.

A good e learning solution is endowed with following attributes:
Free of cost: There are many high priced and expensive options that are generally out of reach to the poor. The pocket friendly nature of e-learning platforms is a boon for the student to shift from obsolete learning to online learning, thereby also making him self-reliant.

Simplicity: Online learning options are simple to use and more comprehensible. Since you can study multiple times till you understand the concept, it becomes a preferred option than a classroom teaching where the teacher has to move the class at a particular pace.

Clarity: The answer provided online are clear to the student. Finding the right study material like the NCERT study material class 9 makes us self-reliant and prepare us to take the exams without being dependent on others.

How is electrotherapy beneficial?

Electrotherapy is a type of treatment that uses electricity in deduction of pain and promotion of tissue healing. This is no new technology and has been in the trade since many years. It is believed that electrical stimulation was used for pain control in the ancient Rome at 63 A.D. The process was done by standing on an electrical fish found in seashores. In between 16th to 18th centuries several types of electrostatic devices were used to get rid of headaches, joint pains and other pains.
Electrotherapy

Electrotherapy is the use of electrical signals to obstruct the transmission of neural pain signals to the brain. The electric currents slow down or divert the message of pain from the nerve to the brain. When conventional medicines and treatments are not effective, electrotherapy is a boon to patients. The electric currents can also be used to speed tissue healing in necessary patients.
There are two types of electrotherapy – TENS (transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation)
The electrical device sends electrical impulses through the skin. The impulses travel through wires to sticky pad electrodes that are placed on the skin above the painful area. A low intensity electric charge passes across the area relieving the pain. TENS is not addictive like other pain reducing medicines and it also doesn’t have any side effects. But it should be avoided by epileptics, heart patients, and pregnant women if not in labour and people with certain skin disorders.
TENS is used for the healing of many painful conditions like -
  • Arthritis
  • Low back pain
  • Labor pain in women
  • Neurological pains like phantom pain
Interferential therapy
Interferential therapy (IFT) is a complicated form of TENS. High frequency currents are used are passed through the skin in a way that their paths cross and is created. This interference creates low frequency stimulation deep under the skin and helps in pain relief. damp sponges are placed on the body and these deliver a mild current like prick of needles. The current is manipulated to target the pain.
IFT is used for conditions like -
  • Pain relief
  • Muscle stimulation
  • Increase local blood flow
  • Reduction of chronic edema
  • Tissue repair
  • Improvement of joint mobility
The duration of the treatment depends on the patients. Generally the treatment is given in short time duration up to 5-10 minutes. In only certain cases it is given for longer duration for 20-30 minutes.
Electrotherapy is a part of physiotherapy treatments. Electrotherapy equipment physiotherapy is used extensively for treating musculoskeletal, neurological and soft tissue problems. It is a very reliable and fast way to get relief from pain without any side effects. You can find several devices for sale or hire and with the help your physiotherapist; you can use them to treat your condition.

How to Verify WhatsApp end-to-end encryption Activation

WhatsApp is now end-to-end encrypted by default and at all times. Here's what the end-to-end encryption means and how it will work. WhatsApp end-to-end encryption is now live. Here’s what the feature means and how you can use it.

WhatsApp is now end-to-end encrypted at all times. This will ensure that a user’s messages, videos, photos sent over WhatsApp can’t be read by anyone else — not WhatsApp, not cyber-criminals, not law-enforcement agencies. Even calls and group chats will be encrypted. WhatsApp co-founder Jan Koum announced the update on his Facebook page, stating that the company has been working on the feature for the last two years.


Activate or Verify WhatsApp end-to-end Encryption Here

Click for Activate Whatsapp Encryption


Koum wrote, “We’ve been working for the past two years to give people better security over their conversations on WhatsApp… People deserve security. It makes it possible for us to connect with our loved ones. It gives us the confidence to speak our minds. It allows us to communicate sensitive information with colleagues, friends, and others. We’re glad to do our part in keeping people’s information out of the hands of hackers and cyber-criminals.”

So what is end-to-end encryption and how exactly does it work in WhatsApp?
WhatsApp is using “The Signal Protocol”, designed by Open Whisper Systems, for its encryption. In its White Paper, explaining the technical details of the end-to-end encryption, WhatsApp says that “once the session is established, clients do not need to rebuild a new session with each other until the existing session state is lost through an external event such as an app reinstall or device change.”

The paper explains how messages are encrypted as well. It reads, “clients exchange messages that are protected with a Message Key using AES256 in CBC mode for encryption and HMAC-SHA256 for authentication. The Message Key changes for each message transmitted, and is ephemeral, such that the Message Key used to encrypt a message cannot be reconstructed from the session.” It also says that calls, large file attachments are end-to-end encrypted as well. Note that the ever-changing message key can mean a delay in some messages getting delivered, according to the paper. It should be noted that feature is enabled by default in WhatsApp, which means that if you and your friends are on the latest version of the app, all chats will be end-to-end encrypted.

Unlike say Telegram where users have to start a secret chat to enable the feature, WhatsApp has the feature on at all times. Users don’t have the option of switching off end-to-end encryption. Users need to be on the same versions of WhatsApp to ensure that their chats get end-to-end encrypted. If you’ve recently updated the app, and you start a chat with someone else (also on the new version) you are likely to see a message saying, “Messages you send to this chat and calls are now secured with end-to-end encryption. Tap for more info.”

Once you tap on the message, WhatsApp has a pop-up menu explaining what end-to-end encryption means. Users can verify if the encryption is working as well. If a user taps on verify, they will be taken to a page with a QR code, followed by a string of 60 numbers. If your friend is nearby, take their phone scan the code from your phone (the option is there at the bottom of the same page) and if the QR code matches, then the chat is encrypted. When the codes match, a green tick appears; when it doesn’t there’s an exclamation mark in red alerting a user that the chat is not secure. So does the end-to-end encryption work all the time? We tried verifying some chats that had the message saying encryption was enabled. In some cases, the verification failed for us.

In the first case, we tried to verify a chat between an Android and iPhone 6s device (running iOS 9.3.1), and the QR codes didn’t match. We also tried matching QR codes on an two Android phones, and once again we got the red alert indicating no end-to-end encryption. Both Android phones are on the latest version of the app from the Google Play Store. However, a verification between a chat on two iOS devices, (iPhone 6s, iPhone 5s) worked for us and showed the green tick. We’re not sure why the verification failed, even though the chat says it is end-to-end encrypted. We might have to wait for another app update that could fix this issue. How to Verify WhatsApp end-to-end Encryption?, Activate WhatsApp End-to-End Encryption, What is WhatsApp End-to-End Encryption?, WhatsApp Encryption Verify 2016, WhatsApp End-to End Encryption Update 2016, How WhatsApp End-to-End Encryption Work, Did you want to know about WhatsApp End-to-End Encryption, WhatsApp end-to-end encryption means, WhatsApp end-to-end encryption meaning.
