Artificial intelligence:

Artificial intelligence is becoming an integral part of smart ICT based apps targeted for digital learning.

For example, some of the smart learning analysis apps can analyse the past performance of the student, performance of similar students in similar categories, and the ongoing continuous monitoring of performance of the student and would predict the support the student would require in the next semesters.

Bihar suffered the most – with 650 deaths – due to various extreme weather conditions in the country last year, a compilation by the India Meteorological Department (IMD) from media and government reports showed.

An official statement issued by the IMD showed that almost 1,560 people died in 2019 due to unusual weather events.

These include heavy rain and floods, heat wave, lightning, thunderstorm and hailstorm.

The year 2019 was the seventh warmest recorded in the country since 1901, the statement showed. This was substantially lower than the highest warming observed over India during 2016, it added.

In 2019, the IMD statement said that eight cyclonic storms formed over the seas against the normal of five. “Heavy rain and flood-related incidents reportedly claimed over 850 lives from different parts of the country during the pre-monsoon, monsoon and post-monsoon periods. Of these, 306 lives were lost from Bihar alone,136 from Maharashtra, 107 from Uttar Pradesh, 88 from Kerala, 80 from Rajasthan and 43 from Karnataka,” the statement said.

Meanwhile, in a related event, the Centre on Monday approved the release of Rs 5,908.56 crore to seven states, including Uttar Pradesh, Karnataka and Assam, as assistance for the damage caused due to various calamities last year.

The home ministry, in a statement, said the decision was taken at a meeting of a high-level committee (HLC), chaired by Union home minister Amit Shah.

The HLC approved additional central assistance of Rs 5,908.56 crore to seven states from the National Disaster Response Fund (NDRF). Of this, Rs 616.63 crore will be given to Assam, Rs 284.93 crore to Himachal Pradesh, Rs 1,869.85 crore to Karnataka, Rs 1,749.73 crore to Madhya Pradesh, Rs 956.93 crore to Maharashtra, Rs 63.32 to Tripura and Rs 367.17 crore to Uttar Pradesh for floods, landslides or cloudburst during the monsoon season, the statement said.

BPSC officer on JNU violence: Saw JNUSU President Aishe Ghosh enter Periyar hostel, stone pelting by ‘Naxals’ continued for an hour.

Source –

Large-scale violence erupted in the JNU campus last night where hundreds of masked men entered the campus, attacked students and faculty members with sticks and rods. The university administration released a statement saying that the students who opposed the registration in the new semester attacked the students who were registering and wanted to study. It is alleged that Leftist students, protesting against the marginal fee hike in JNU were opposed to students registering for the new semester.

Now, BPSC officer who is studying in JNU has also taken to Facebook to narrate his harrowing experience after masked goons laid siege in the JNU campus. According to his account, it was the Leftists who indulged in largescale violence.

Bhaskar Jyoti says that around 8 PM, he escaped from the JNU hostel to take refuge in a friend’s house and he has no idea what would have happened had he stayed in the hostel. He says that his friend was on his way from the Kaveri hostel to the Periyar hostel to check up on him when his head was busted by Leftist goons.

He says that two days ago, the Naxalites (Leftist students, in all probability) had shut down the entire WiFi system and that masked goons had cut all the cables so the registration process cannot be carried out. He alleges that the students who wanted to register were making a list of the miscreants who were disrupting the registration process and it is in this backdrop that the violence took place.

He says that his friends were talking in his room and after they left, he heard loud noises under the Periyar hostel. While he was too tired and did not check what was happening, soon, 200 masked goons appeared in the hostel armed with sticks and rods and were entering every room, breaking down doors and windows.

Further, Bhaskar says that when the goons looked at him, they showered him with abuses and started chasing him down trying to enter his room. Bhaskar managed to run inside his room and lock the door, jamming it with the wooden furniture. After trying to break the door down with sticks and rods for a few minutes, they left and loud screaming noises could be heard by him from the hostel.

He then claims that he headed to his balcony where he could see 500 people beating on students of Godavari hostel. There were girls in masks too. After this, he could hear them saying that now they will proceed to beat up students staying in the Mahi Mandvi Hostel.

He then says that after 20-25 minutes, around 500 masked Naxalites were beating students of the Periyar students at the gate of the hostel. He says that at that time, around 50 people entered the hostel again and started trying to break down doors and windows.

He then makes two startling revelations. He says that he says JNUSU President Aishe Ghosh with his own eyes entering the Periyar hostel and when she entered the hostel, she was well and not hurt. He says he doesn’t know when Ghosh got hurt thereafter. He also claims that for about an hour, the stone pelting at the gate of Periyar hostel continued by the Leftists.

He then says that he was asked to leave the hostel by the administration because of the violence and was also told that the Leftist students might attack again. He says that he then escaped the hostel through the surrounding woods.

The claims of Bhaskar do not seem to be too off the mark as the JNU statement also mentions the violence breaking out due to the registration process. Further, a video had surfaced earlier as well, based on which, claims were made that JNUSU President, Leftist student Aishe Ghosh was seen leading the masked mob that attacked JNU students.

UPSC to hold exclusive Railway Service Exam from 2021 after merger of services.

Source –

New Delhi: With the Modi government having decided to merge all eight existing rail services into a single Indian Railways Management Service (IRMS), the UPSC will now be holding an exclusive railway service exam, ThePrint has learnt. 

The exclusive UPSC exam for the new Indian Railway Management Service (IRMS) will be first conducted in 2021. 

This year’s UPSC exam will follow the earlier pattern — in which officers for the Indian Railway Accounts Service, Indian Railway Traffic Service, Indian Railway and the Indian Railway Personnel Service will be recruited through the Civil Services Exam (CSE), while those for the other services will be recruited through the Indian Engineering Service (IES) exam. 

From next year onwards, however, there will be a common preliminary exam for the railway service but the main exam for engineers will be on their specialised domain expertise and not general studies, an official said on condition of anonymity. 

“It would follow the Indian Forest Service (IFS) exam pattern,” the official said. “IFS officers have the same preliminary exam as IAS, IPS among others but have a specialised mains paper exclusively designed for them.” 

UPSC will be intimated about the number of officers needed in the IRMS from 2021 onwards.

Senior UPSC officials, however, said the commission has received no such proposal.

“The government will decide how to go about it…We have not been informed or asked about anything yet,” an official said.

The commission also has no knowledge of whether the new IRMS will be considered a civil service or not. 

DoPT not consulted before Railways service merger

The Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT), which is the coordinating agency for all personnel matters, was not consulted by the Modi government before the controversial merger, ThePrint has learnt.

The DoPT looks after recruitment, regulation of service conditions, postings and transfers, deputation and training of civil servants, and comes directly under the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO).  

“They announced that they would consult the DoPT and UPSC after making the announcement,” said a DoPT official. “But despite the fact that the DoPT is the nodal agency for these matters, it was not consulted before the announcement was made.”

Officials are foreseeing a lot of problems in unifying the existing cadres of the eight services as well. “There will be issues of promotion, seniority, among others. All those need to be reconciled,” the official added.
