Research Top News The Post Graduate Institute of Medical Education and Research (PGIMER) would soon install Aadhaar-enabled biometric attendance system on the campus The PGI administration would initially install the system in the Administration Block and later extend it to other parts of the hospital the institute’s spokesperson said on Thursday PGI officials said they invited quotations for 12 biometric attendance machines PGI spokeswomen Manju Wadwalkar confirmed that the administration has decided to install biometric attendance system at the institute “It will start from Kairon (administration) block followed by Nehru Hospital and then New OPD Block Gradually it would be extended to other areas as well” she said Sources said during a recent meeting held with the heads of departments most of the senior faculty said they did not have any problem with the new attendance system A source said only a few doctors were reluctant about the installation of the attendance machines at the institute The PGI administration has been receiving regular reports about doctors coming late to the new OPD Block which records a footfall of around 20000 people on a daily basis A PGI official said some of the doctors do not turn up at the OPD till 10 in the morning as the patients are kept waiting The official said PGI director Dr Jagat Ram has already conveyed to the heads of departments to ensure that the doctors reach on time to the OPDs PGIMER doctors said the biometric attendance system should be started to keep a check on the employees at the institute “It (biometric)

and who is leaving late from the institute” said a senior PGI faculty member However PGI faculty association head said some technical issues needed to be resolved before the biometric machines are installed in the OPDs “The job of the faculty at the institute is not fixed There are some doctors who check patients in the OPDs till 7pm There are some technical things that need to be sorted out We are not against the installation of biometric attendance system but some issues need to be sorted out first” said Dr T D Yadav head PGI Faculty Association Asked about the doctors who reach late to the OPDs Yadav said those doctors should be identified and the administration should take care of the matter For all the latest Chandigarh News download Indian Express App More Top NewsWritten by Ajay Gudavarthy | Published: February 19 2016 12:02 am JNU Students shout slogans against the issue of Anti National slogans came out in the new in New Delhi (Express Photo) Related News It is well known that not many Kashmiris are happy with the Indian Union for the way they are treated and due to the wanton human rights abuse that is an everyday reality in Kashmir In this light those students who raised slogans declaring Afzal Guru a martyr are not unusual For that matter the issue of the travesty of justice or “judicial killing” in Afzal Guru’s case has been raised by many writers and also a former high court judge In fact Mehbooba Mufti of the PDP has herself raised this issue and demanded that the body of Afzal Guru be returned to his family The BJP continues to explore options of forming government in Jammu and Kashmir with the PDP even as it clamps down on JNU and accuses the JNU students’ union president of sedition From openly debating why the Kashmiris’ demand for a plebiscite is legitimate today even uttering a doubt on the most brazen of human rights violations committed by security forces could count as anti-national activity Demanding rule of law and accountability from the police and armed and paramilitary forces has become sedition Raising slogans — however objectionable some of them might have been — is now being seen as an act of terror Universities have been perhaps the last public spaces to assert a right to express and debate which are utterly indispensable for holding a nation together The RSS in its mouthpiece had not long ago argued that JNU is a bastion of anti-national activities and a hub of terror What we are witnessing today in JNU is an outcome of that kind of an understanding of a place that is willing to penetrate the political nature of various problems including the nationality struggles in the Northeast socio-economic roots of the Maoist insurgency everyday humiliation suffered by Dalits wanton neglect and marginalisation of Muslims sexual harassment of women and stigmatisation of sexual minorities Not long ago demanding reservations for the OBCs and implementing the Mandal Commission report were described as anti-national and today the BJP-RSS that had vehemently opposed such demands proudly projects an OBC as its leader On the day of the public meeting in JNU on February 13 to protest the police clampdown and demand the release of Kanhaiya Kumar a handful of ABVP activists were waving black flags and raising slogans against the massive gathering They were allowed the space to protest In no small measure this reflects the spirit that JNU has stood for all these years A spirit that stands in complete opposition to the way the current political dispensation has handled students not in JNU alone but in the University of Hyderabad IIT Madras and FTII A spirit that refuses to be subsumed under the simple-minded mediocre nationalism of the current dispensation that wishes away every difference of opinion and perceives it as “Bharat Ma ka apman” Nations flourish when they instill a sense of belongingness and meaning to their diversity Universities play an important role in this by contributing towards extending the inclusive character and democratising social hierarchies Otherwise we often end up with “nationalism without a nation” The death of ideas is also the death of a nation In fact the persistent crisis of the present government is one of a lack of imagination and failure to create a new energy that often comes with fresh and innovative ideas in a democracy Growth is stuck and the government is not willing to innovate new welfare policies that can reinvigorate its social mobilisation Communal polarisation has failed both in Delhi and Bihar The only option now seems to be hyperbolic nationalism The unwillingness to look for new political strategies is also reflected in the way the dispensation is handling problems in universities Rohith Vemula’s case was striking in the way the HRD ministry got itself engulfed in a crisis that became cynical to the point of denying Rohith’s Dalit identity and the role of casteism on campuses Part of the problem is the utter disregard for the autonomy of universities and disallowing administrators from tuning in to the mood and aspirations on campuses The way ahead is to listen and see the way Rohith Vemula and Kanhaiya Kumar have become symbols of a simmering multitude that cannot simply be pushed away or cowed down through the use of force Even nationalism demands a dialogue Love for the nation has to be nurtured not shoved down throats Diversity has to be acknowledged not merely by recognising various social identities but the ideas that come with them Finally even to eventually resolve the Kashmir issue we need to empathise with why Kashmiris feel so distanced from India and wedge open a social narrative on the growing majoritarianism and radicalisation of the Kashmiri youth problems of Kashmiri Pundits and their resettlement unresolved issues of gender and religion among other not-so-agreeable features of Kashmiri society But in order to produce such a dialogue we need to look into ourselves Are we prepared for the social spaces such a political dialogue requires or are we filled with the fear of diversity The writer is assistant professor Centre for Political Studies JNU Delhi
