certainties of the joint family and joint landholdings unravelled Migrants relocating to domestic and international job markets left behind elderly parents living alone The current official figure is close to 50 lakh and the burden of old age is compounded by a gender angle: almost three quarters of elderly people living alone are women most of them in rural areas These figures ignore the elderly who are grudgingly tolerated by their families and have poor access to alternative support structures including government schemes This data from the 2011 Census reveals the dark side of the demographic dividend which India counts on to break the cycle of poverty Lack of access to schemes and services may owe to purely physical constraints — the ability to collect state-sponsored pensions requires mobility which the elderly may not have Besides benefits are often insignificant For instance the schemes under the National Social Assistance Programme launched in 1995 are restricted to the elderly widows and the disabled below the poverty line Even if states offer matching sums benefits barely reach four figures Healthcare costs escalate by orders of magnitude with age and this amount is clearly insufficient Apart from economic implications ageing is associated with intangible damage — loss of status and peer community and estrangement from society Artificial communities of the elderly can replace the organic communities they were born into but they cannot be operated without material support from the youth who represent the demographic dividend via taxes voluntary action or philanthropy Senior communities assisted living and support groups for those who choose to live alone cannot meet even a fraction of future demand Besides given that the burden is rural the majority of elderly women would find them unaffordable or unreachable The elderly need a security net — a web of support and assistance in accessing it Though government started to weave that web long ago it is still full of holes and unless the real beneficiaries of development are involved — the demographic dividend that we like to hype at home and sell overseas — it cannot possibly be made whole For

towards a draw after a solid century stand by the visiting team’s openers here on the penultimate day After India were all out for 488 in their first innings thereby conceding a first innings lead of 49 runs England openers Alastair Cook (46 batting) and teenager Haseeb Hameed (62 batting) added 114 runs in 37 overs to take the lead to 163 runs With only a day’s play left and turn on offer being a slow one it will take a Herculean effort from Indian bowlers to enforce a result out of this match which is heading towards a tame draw England won’t mind as it would give them a necessary boost on a long tour that will end in the third week of next month Cook was unbeaten on 46 off 107 balls and debutant opener Hameed struck his maiden half-century on debut The 115-ball innings had five boundaries and a six With the pitch showing just the usual signs of wear and tear draw looks the most obvious result unless England make a challenging declaration and press for a victory tomorrow In the morning India resumed at the overnight 319 for four and lost wickets steadily barring a 64-run seventh wicket stand between Ravichandran Ashwin who made a steady 70 with seven fours off 139 balls and in 200 minutes and wicketkeeper Wriddhiman Saha (35) India lost the wickets of captain Virat Kohli who struck five fours in 95 balls and Ajinkya Rahane (13) in the pre-lunch session and the rest in the session before tea The last-wicket stand between Ashwin who was 49 when the ninth wicket fell and Mohammed Shami (not out 8) kept England on the field longer than they may have expected and helped India cut the lead to below 50 All the Indian wickets that fell today were claimed by the English spin trio of leggie Adil Rashid (4 for 114) off-spinner Moeen Ali (2 for 85) and left-arm spinner Zafar Ansari (2 for 77) The other two wickets were shared equally by pacers Stuart Broad (1 for 78) and Ben Stokes (1 for 52) Rahane and Kohli departed in the span of under 15 minutes and in the space of 17 balls in the first session to raise England’s hopes which were dashed by Ashwin and Saha with their diligent half century stand that lasted for 98 minutes Kohli became the first Indian skipper in over 65 years to be dismissed hit-wicket while Rahane was dismissed cheaply before Ashwin and Saha steadied the rocking boat with a half century stand Both Rahane and Kohli were out to pull shots on a wicketwhere the odd ball had started turning and jumping from the footmarks or widening cracks Rahane who joined Kohli straightaway this morning afterIndia had lost night watchman Amit Mishra to the third ball ofwhat was the final over of the extended day’s play was outwhen he misread a straight ball from left-arm spinner Ansari He tried to pull off the back foot and the ball hit thetop of the middle stump It was the first big blow of the day and an even biggerone followed when Kohli who looked well-set and had eschewed risky shots went back to pull the ball from leggie Rashid but trod on his wicket as his left leg touched the base of thestump and disturbed the bails Kohli thus became the second India captain to get out hitwicket after Lala Amarnath in 1948-49 at the Chepauk inChennai against Trevor Goddard’s West Indies It was also the 22nd time that an Indian batsman was outin this freak manner Lala’s son Mohinder heading the list having been out thrice in this

one stage last evening 318 fortwo before Vijay departed for 126 had dramatically slumped to361 for six Although India later lost the wickets of Saha Jadeja(12) Yadav (5) and Ashwin tea had approached and England’slead was cut considerably Ashwin who compiled his seventh half century in his 40th Test and third against the tourists was the last to departwhen he was caught in the deep off Moeen Ali after havingadded 29 runs for the last wicket with Shami who was not out 8 after a stay of half an hour England commenced their second innings and appeared in notrouble against either pace or spin although Cook on 7 was nearly caught hooking a short ball from Shami at long leg by Cheteshwar Pujara The Indian spinners will certainly come in for some flakas they bowled 26 out of 37 overs Ashwin (0/32 in 10 overs)and Ravindra Jadeja (0/33 in 10 overs) did get the ball toturn and jump but it wasn’t anything menacing Amit Mishra (0/19 in 6 overs) again looked slow through the air Debutant opener Hameed batted confidently in the companyof his captain Cook and the 50 came up quickly in the 15th over Only once did the 19-year-old batsman look in trouble just before he reached his maiden half century He offered no stroke when he went back to Ashwin and wasrapped on pads The appeal was rejected and the DRS call bythe Indians showed the ball was missing the off stump and he survived He

2016 2:47 am A fresh survey of slum-dwellers is being conducted and will take about four months said officials Top News Responding to a question raised by Congress MP R Dhruvanarayana in the Lok Sabha the Ministry of Housing and Urban Poor Alleviation on May 11 submitted details of houses constructed all over the country under the Jawaharlal Nehru National Urban Renewal Mission (JNNURM) and the number of these that remain unoccupied Of the 1032443 houses constructed for economically weaker sections 27344 were in Delhi Of these 26228 remained unoccupied the ministry informed the House The story of the unoccupied homes leads to the story of Delhi’s political rollercoaster ride between 2013 and 2015 and the attempts of administrators revising eligibility cut-offs to make more and more slum-dweller eligible for rehabilitation and housing As much as providing housing for slum-dwellers makes for a shiny election manifesto its implementation has had administrators labouring to keep the allotments fair ensure genuineness of occupants and most importantly make more and more people eligible Share This Article Related Article Watch Video: What’s making news The Delhi Urban Shelter Improvement Board (DUSIB) and the Delhi State Industrial and Infrastructure Development Corporation (DSIIDC) have constructed these houses under the JNNURM The DUSIB the agency tasked with rehabilitation is also responsible for mapping of slums identifying eligible persons drawing lots allotting the houses and vacating plots with slums Since the DUSIB was set up in 2010 the cut-off for slum-dwellers eligible for housing under rehabilitation schemes has been revised four times A DUSIB official said “When the DUSIB was formed in 2010 it relied on a notification of March 31 2002 that stated a Jhuggi-Jhopri (JJ) cluster could not consist of less than 50 houses The cut-off date for eligibility of slum-dwellers to avail of rehabilitation housing was set in 2002 However with this cut-off date only 18 per cent of the slum-dwellers were found to be eligible for alternative housing” According to DUSIB officials surveys to determine the eligibility of the residents of JJ clusters were conducted each time the date was revised After 2002 the cut-off was set at 2007 and an evaluation was conducted once again This time officials said of the total slum-dwellers in Delhi about 35 to 38 per cent were found eligible for rehabilitation The then UPA government at the Centre announced its intention to create a slum-free India in five years after then President Pratibha Patil unveiled the Rajiv Awas Yojana on June 4 2009 “So this became the next cut-off date to determine the eligibility of slum-dwellers to avail of rehabilitation by the government” said a senior DUSIB official Between April and August 2013 DUSIB issued eligibility documents to 4100 slum-dwellers However after this round of evaluation only 47 per cent of the applicants were found eligible DUSIB CEO V K Jain said “There are in all 32 JJ bastis where an eligibility survey was conducted Of these eight were shifted to Bawana but there were a lot of unsettled claims of JJ dwellers who had to be rehabilitated In the remaining 24 the survey was done around 2013 with the cut-off date set in 2009 but they could not be shifted because more than 50 per cent were found ineligible” Another DUSIB official said “In 2013 Delhi was supposed to go to polls At a time that Delhi was preparing for elections no government wanted to announce a policy that denied 53 per cent of slum-dwellers rehabilitation The policy needed review but it was kept in abeyance during the election period” With the AAP’s debut in Delhi assembly elections in 2013 the Congress government was voted out of power While the AAP took charge of Delhi’s administration its first innings lasted 49 days too short a time to review or notify the slum rehabilitation policy of the DUSIB For the period between 2014-2015 when Delhi did not have an elected government and was governed by the Lieutenant Governor no further measures could be taken for the revision or implementation of the policy by the DUSIB The DUSIB is headed by the Chief Minister of Delhi After the AAP came to power in February 2015 the slum rehabilitation policy was revisited In December 2015 the Arvind Kejriwal government announced its new slum rehabilitation policy setting the cut-off for eligibility for alternative accommodation at January 1 2015 The ‘Delhi Slum and JJ Rehabilitation and Relocation Policy 2015’ was approved in a meeting chaired by Chief Minister Kejriwal Under the new policy the DUSIB will plan and implement in situ (natural or original position or place) rehabilitation/redevelopment of JJ clusters wherever it is technically feasible; in other cases DUSIB will resort to nearest possible relocation Meanwhile many of the houses constructed by the DUSIB and the DSIIDC were ready The construction of two JNNURM projects undertaken by the DUSIB in Dwarka Site-II and Dwarka Site-III were completed in September and February 2013 respectively Senior DUSIB officials said while the new rehabilitation policy of the government was yet to be notified it was tested in the rehabilitation of slums in Jwalapuri carried out as an exception in accordance with orders of the Delhi High Court “This was a case by the Virat co-operative housing society that had started during the Sheila Dikshit government However the DUSIB had to rehabilitate a JJ cluster in compliance with the orders of the high court The cut-off date of January 1 2015 was tested on these slums and more than 90 per cent of the people were then found eligible for rehabilitation” said a senior official Officials however said a fresh survey of slum-dwellers is being conducted using the new cut-off date This will take about four months before allocations begin the officials added DUSIB CEO Jain said “In 10 out of the 23 JJ clusters (excluding Jwalapuri) the fresh survey under the new policy is completed The work is going on in full swing By the end of this year we hope to relocate all the eligible slum dwellers in all the 32 JJ clusters” For all the latest Delhi News download Indian Express App More Top NewsWritten by Shubhangi Khapre | Nagpur | Published: December 15 2015 12:29 am Related News Chief Minister Devendra

fast-tracking projects Municipal corporations may have some financial constraints which often drag their market ratings and become a hurdle in fund borrowing” he told the state Assembly on Monday Some
