first_imgNEW DELHI: Delhi government’s Services department has issued directions for implementation of 10 percent reservation for economically weaker sections in all direct recruitment effective from February 1 this year. In January, ahead of Lok Sabha polls the Union Cabinet chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi cleared 10 percent quota in education and government jobs to Economically Weaker Sections (EWS), a key demand of upper castes. In a circular of Services department, dated May 28, issued by deputy Secretary (services) Biju Raj on behalf of the competent authority (Lieutenant- Governor), all the departments and other bodies of the Delhi government have been asked for compliance of the quota provision.

The office of Lt Governor presently exercises jurisdiction over the Services department. The dispute between the Lieutenant -Governor office and ruling Aam Aadmi Party dispensation, on control over Services matter in Delhi, is sub-judice. Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal had supported 10 percent reservation to EWS after the Modi government announced it in January and sought Constitutional amendment for its implementation. He had asked the Modi government to extend the Parliament session for passing a Constitutional Amendment Bill in this regard, saying AAP will support it.last_img read more

Agriculture Min. commits $6.4 million for Canadian beef promotion abroad CALGARY – Agriculture and Agri-Food Minister Lawrence MacAulay says the government has committed up to $6.4 million over three years to help promote Canadian beef abroad.Speaking in Calgary Wednesday, MacAulay said the investment will help strengthen the Canadian beef brand globally and lead to greater returns for farmers.The government says the strategic initiative will support a three-year plan to promote and develop markets for Canadian beef in Asia, Europe, North America and Latin America.The funding announcement comes after Canada recently reopened or expanded export markets after the fallout from a mad-cow disease scare in 2003.Earlier this month Taiwan lifted its ban on Canadian beef, while, in June, Mexico committed to lifting a restriction on cattle over 30 months later this year.In 2015, the Canadian beef industry exported $2.2-billion worth of meat to 58 countries. by The Canadian Press Posted Jul 20, 2016 12:48 pm MDT Last Updated Jul 20, 2016 at 1:40 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email read more

first_imgWeba Chute Systems’ global expansion is continuing with the appointment of FWS Bulk Material Handling as the official distributor of its technology in Canada.The signing of this latest licence agreement comes only a few months after the chute system specialist signed up Somex as a licensee in Russia.Mark Baller, Managing Director of Weba Chute Systems, says the synergy between the two companies bodes well for a successful long-term partnership.“FWS Bulk Material Handling has an equitable track record with its teams spread across western Canada, and the extensive design-build experience within the company as well the knowledge of project execution across a broad range of industries played a major role in our decision to enter into a formal agreement,” Baller says.Weba has previously supplied its custom engineered chute systems to the North American market where these have been used in the power generation and mining sectors. Baller says, while the company has a sound understanding of the needs of this region, it is also looking forward to working closely with FWS Bulk Material Handling in servicing other sectors including agriculture, bulk storage and export terminals, food processing and railways.He says: “Our transfer points are definitely not off-the-shelf products and, while anyone can do the basics when it come to the technical side of designing a transfer chute, it is not an exact science and there is simply no single solution for materials transfer.”Weba Chute Systems has more than 4,500 transfer point systems successfully operating in countries across the world. The company has a comprehensively equipped manufacturing facility at its South African based head office, and this is underpinned by its team of skilled and competent engineers, it says.last_img read more
