Streamline the traffic signals in Jammu
Dear sir, The installation of traffic signal lights in the City of Jammu could not become result oriented due to absurd planning and execution of the project. A total number of more than 35 traffic signal lights are installed at different crossings across Jammu region including Jewel Chowk, Canal road, Bikram Chowk, University's main gate, Panama Chowk, Railway Crossing, Narwal, Bathindi Morh, Green Belt Park Gandhi Nagar, Ambphalla, Kachi Chawni and so on. Initially these lights were seen blinking precisely at every place of crossing but soon after most of them either stopped blinking, stuck on flash or not changing or showed lack of timing co-ordination in nexus with traffic flow, which ultimately results in congestions or blockade. Instead of repairing the defunct traffic signals, the...

Rapists should not go unpunished
Dear Editor, The husband and wife are two wheels of a cycle and both are equally needed to run a family. Rapists should not go unpunished but there is no concept of the word like 'rape' between the married couple in India. Making love, repeatedly, against the will of partner means one is abnormal. The couple should remember that with consent of other partner only one can enjoy the conjugal relations. For exceptional cases of such a repeat in-forced sex in marriage, there should effectively be no new law on this subject. Further if such a law is made where husband is allegedly tried in court of law for attempting rape of his wife then best course is to be separated with mutual consent. Remember that it is well said that in law no single person should be punished for not breaking the law...

Save Trees
Dear Editor, Trees are important because they provide oxygen for us in order to breathe. Without trees we wouldn’t have oxygen, so we probably wouldn’t be alive much longer after they all died. Trees provide shade for people in the summer when it’s really hot outside, and they help us save energy in the summer time. Trees beautify our surroundings and provide homes for wildlife. Without trees wild animals wouldn’t have anywhere to live. Trees block wind from our homes and provide a safe barrier. These are only a few important things stating why trees are important for us to live. It is a terrible thing to see trees destroyed in violent storms. It is also a tragedy when old or rotting trees fall or can no longer be saved. But the deliberate cutting down of strong, living trees is heartbr...

IT absurd asumptions all are tax defaulters
Dear Editor, As Press reports the Income tax authorities are now targeting thousands of individuals including senior citizens who have interest income from fixed deposits of Rupees 5 lakh or more- but probably not paying tax. This is most absurd thinking. There may be few of such persons but treating all tax payers including senior citizens as tax defaulters is a matter of shame for the government. Perhaps this is first time in the history of world on income tax where such a low thinking of government is found for its honest and tax abiding citizens. Recently it was made a policy matter that senior citizens will be well treated with respect and unnecessary notices of any kind will not be sent to them. Was it a sham? Also, as per tax provisions some of notices to enquire income escaped...

States vigil on cow vigilantes
Dear Editor, This refers to your editorial “Vigil on Cow vigilantes” (KT- Sept 9). India has been reeling from a spate of vigilante murders in recent months. Our PM Modi has criticised the vigilantes and urged a crackdown against groups using religion as a cover for committing crimes. Historically, the cause of cow-protection in colonial India has always led to violent vigilantism. There have been laws on cow slaughter in almost all the state of India for many years, but in the past many have not been enforced, especially for aging cows that stop producing milk. A series of incidents involving cow-protection activists attacking people transporting cattle in various parts of the country have shaken India, whose Hindu majority regards cows as sacred. The self-appointed gau-rakshaks (cow ...

Correct Info on IT returns
Dear Editor, It would be more convenient if all the information with income tax department about an assessee collected from various sources including AIR etc. -linked with PAN- is also made available in Form 26AS and automatically uploaded in the income tax “Pre-filled” forms at the time of e-filing, yes with the option to edit it, if assessee wish so-finds it wrong. And it would be much better if full of previous year I T return filed is being made available in - with those changes which are not relevant in the current assessment year is also made available in ‘Pre-filled’ form with of course editing facility to update and correct it. This facility would help the assessee to fill correct figures too as comparison with last year’s figures with editing would help in re-checking and conf...

Chain snatching
Dear Editor, Chain snatching, Rape, Molestation of women is on the increase. It seems Chain-snatching has become the easiest crime to commit and has turned out to be a highly profitable profession for the unemployed youth. As the ladies have the habit of wearing thick gold chains, it does not break easily when snatched resulting increase in the risk of neck trauma. Wearing of ornaments has now become out of the question, and women are teased and harassed as they go of their houses, or take a bus to go the place where they work. If citizens are alert and courageous, incidents of Chain snatching will come down sharply. It is experienced that the police dept. is woefully shortage of manpower to deal with complaints of all sorts. Most cases go unreported and even though cases are registe...

Rewriting I T Laws
Dear Editor, As per reports The Income Tax Act is to be re-written for simplification and better compliance. The irony with the government is that to simplify tax matters it makes it most complicated perhaps keeping in view loss of revenue or thinks all citizens are dishonest as regard to taxes! The fact is that the overall total tax burden of all the taxes- a citizen pays is perhaps highest in India. And in turn citizens do not get required / expected services from the government. Recall simplifying income tax -an attempt was being made by the previous government to simplify Income Tax by introduction of Direct Tax Code so that common income tax payers can easily understand it and comply with it. But the truth was otherwise. The Direct Tax Code, 2013 Bill had 325 clauses, 21 chapters...

Avoid Junk food
Dear Editor, Today the accessibility, cost and tasted has made Junk food more popular. But the people particularly youngsters are now aware that the hazards of junk food is very high and they just get addicted to these food. One of the reasons for the addiction of Junk food is the busy schedules of parents. The original producers of burgers, pizzas and other fast-food items were under tremendous influence of negative energies. Negative energies used these producers to create food that is easy to prepare, able to attract immediately, suitable for quick consumption, and enabling the spread of black energy through them easily into the body and mind of the individual who eats them. When school-college going young girls consume junk-food in excess, most of them can lose the hormonal balance...

Radio a history now so sad
Dear Editor, Refer to Opinion “The power of Radio” by A G Noorani (KT September 11, 2017). It recalls in 60s a toy Radio costing Rs. 5 was available to listen local Radio Stations Delhi A, Delhi B etc by attaching its one wire to any iron made product like windows, clothes line wire etc –it was through ear plugs to listen. There was no battery in it. To my memory it had some zinc material inside it with other materials and component. It was a very small in size fits in any small pocket. I wonder if such a toy can do miracles in mobiles world of FM listening. There is no substitute for Radio. While listening and enjoying Radio one can do many things simultaneously, which is not possible in case of TV, as one requires concentration to see it? Routine work is not suffered while listening...

Save Elephants
Dear Editor, In India, even though the elephant is venerated and is seen as a symbol of friendship, it is hunted for its tusks. Ivory, derived from elephant tusks, is the leading cause for the poaching of these animals. Over the past few decades, the overall elephant population has declined 76 per cent, all because of the demand for their tusks, which can be sold for $1,500 a pound on the global black market. Today ivory is mostly extracted from elephants in African and Asia. However, India cannot afford to relax its vigil, for the poaching for ivory has decimated the tusk bearing male elephant population. Report says as against 300,000 to 600,000 African elephants, there are just 35,000 to 50,000 Asian elephants, half of them in India. According to wildlife group, illicit trade in ivo...
