SIO Welcomes Maharashtra State government move to aid hailstorm affected farmers

SIO South Maharashtra welcomes the State government’s initiative for the relief packaged announced to the hailstorm affected farmers of Maharashtra and it suggest releasing the said amounts as soon as possible on priority basis. While releasing the amount state official should maintain transparency and as well as it must reach to the needy hand without creating any self made hurdles.

We also appreciate the move taken by Election commission of India that it considered the matter on humanitarian ground and allowed the state government to announce the relief package in spite election code of conduct. We also suggest the Election commission that it should keep watch on method and functionary adopted by the state official while aiding the needy affected areas so that no could take the political advantage of it before the Loksabha Election.

TCS involvement in Higher Education Curriculum will increase commercialization of education: SIO South Maharashtra

Aurangabad: Software major Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) said in Monday it would come out with a model of curriculum to impart a change in higher education syllabus to help educational institutions bring out quality students in line with the expectations of industry.
The step announced by TCS clearly showed that it will increase the commercialization of education. As TCS already said that it will designed it for the expectations of industries so the orientation of the education and students will be towards the industries’ requirements and not for the service and society.
Students Islamic organization of India (SIO) South Maharashtra strongly Believes that involvement of multinational companies like TCS, Reliance etc. will completely change the face of education and the actual & real responsibility of education. SIO believes that education is not only for money, it is for imparting morals and values in the human being to make him a good citizen of the society who always cares and prefers  the needs of society, who doesn’t  become selfish. But the involvement of TCS like companies in setting up the educational agenda will demolish the basic performance of education.
SIO demands that government must make sure that in setting up the educational agenda at any level will only involve academicians and social activists who will make educational preferences not for commercialization but for the betterment of the society.
Due to the involvement of MNCs firstly only those courses will survive in the market which will fulfill the needs of only companies and the other cources which helps society for betterment in terms of values, etc will be vanished.
Secondly this commercialization will make education much and more costly, making it away from the hands of common man and poor people. Recently the UNESCO report on Indian education gives the information that only 40% of poor children reaches to 5th std. in schools. So will decrease the overall level of education in the country.
Therefore Government must stop the commercialization of education.
