new conventional weapons Chinese aircrafttanks and ships are quite ordinary platforms Its successes in nuclearmissilelaserand cyberwar technologies are all unconventional The causes of Chinese successes in unconventional military technologies are manybut it is worth remembering that the Chinese government has used an extensive spying campaign in pursuit of commercial and military secrets This consequences of the campaign are now catching up with Beijing as the United States and other Western powers gear up to prevent Chinese infiltration As an emerging powerIndia is better off being seen as a benign force It is better off buying technology rather than stealing it It is better off inviting the world to participate in its rise than keeping the world outside and suspicious Better off acting transparently in the defence marketplace even at the cost of sacrificing secrecy Better off reforming its procurement systemrather than winnowing down the market India buys weapons from foreign suppliers not only to develop military capacity but also to build relationships with other key countries that facilitate its rise The key instrument of economic efficiency in any marketpricingis mind-bogglingly inefficient when it comes to armaments Weapons in the same category made by different manufacturers are not readily comparableespecially at the higher rungs of the technology ladder There are too few sellers and even fewer buyers to make a truly competitive market Furtherthe value of a particular weapon-system in the context of a national security strategy is hard to calculate Tryfor examplefiguring out whether missiles or attack aircraft have greater utility; practically every government faced with the decision went with boththe most expensive and least efficient option Indias defence market faces these challenges and more We argued in our book Arming without Aiming that Indian military procurement is disconnected from national objectives Indian grand strategy de-emphasises the use of force and consequentlythe military receives little strategic guidance from the political leaders Prime Minister Manmohan Singhfor examplehas repeatedly said at conferences with Indian military commanders that the countrys primary threats are internalwithout publicly clarifying the role of the armed forces in meeting internal security challenges Only the Indian army participates in internal security operationsthat tooin well defined areas such as Kashmir; what should the Indian Air Force and the Indian Navy do According to the Constitutionthe armed forces are not responsible for internal security The policewhich is responsible for domestic law and orderremains in the hands of the states and outside the ability of the Central government to reform On the military sidethe result is that the services are left to define the threats they believe the country faces and accordingly they appear to be preparing to fight three different wars against three different enemies Todaythe army thinks it needs an air force of its ownthe navy wants to acquire its own thermonuclear capabilityand the IAF appears to be planning for wars independent of the other two services India was one of the first countries in the world to integrate officer training at the NDA and the Staff College but everything else seems to be contributing to service rivalries Indias unified commands are feeble and there is no movement on a new combined defence chief Only actual wars and initial setbacks seem to produce inter-service cooperationsuch as between the army and the IAF in Kargil The problem is exacerbated by the lack of military expertise in the political and bureaucratic class Several retired defence secretaries we spoke with during the course of writing Arming without Aiming reported that it was not until their second or third postings in the ministry that they had acquired a sense of competence in the field Arun Singhone of the more respected defence ministers in Indian historyonce proposed keeping certain IAS and IFS officers in defence-related positions for much of their careers in effect creating a specialist cadre within the civilian bureaucracy Another option might be to bring in outside civilian experts from the academy or journalism into government for short-periods of time like in the American systembut the thought of lateral entry into the civil serviceor a defence cadre within the IASremains unthinkable The Indian defence industry is largely state-owned and has its own problems of bias and corruption that result in cost and quality losses for the armed forces The DRDO and the defence public sector units operate as a monopoly with attendant failures in innovationcostand accountability The scientific advisor to the defence ministerwho shapes procurement decisionsalso heads the military research labswhich puts him in the position of evaluating his own work in comparison with those of others This conflict of interest is not even seen as a source of corruption The continued absence of Indian firms in the defence marketplace reflects a deep-seated ideological bias against profit as a motive for productive action The expectation that Indian private industryif allowed entry into the military productionwill be less corrupt is misguided as well Doubtlessthe government will have greater control over an Indian seller than it does over a foreign supplierbut the actions of businesses alone do not cause corruption; government officials have to take bribes There is no reason to expect that Indian firms will not be asked to pay up to win contracts These dysfunctions persist behind the trope of secrecy Military-strategic matters are national secrets no doubtbut the process of buying weapons (that are already owned by other countries) hardly needs to be conducted in secret Similarlythe DRDOwhich is not building any unheard of weapon-systemshould conduct itself in full public view and allow its scientists to join the peer review system Closed-off organisations generally fail to innovate; little wonder that only 3 per cent of DRDO scientists and engineers have PhDs Opening up the military research and weapons procurement process to public view would reduce the potential for corruptionand it would not be worse than the present glacial acquisition process Indian defence badly needs reformbut the recommendations of several high-powered committees including those headed by Arun SinghNaresh Chandra and the irreplaceable K Subrahmanyam (Kargil review) remain ignored by several governments India needs to begin at the beginningwith a clearer vision of the role of the military and use of force in the countrys rise as a great power This vision must balance between domestic and external threats to securityinclude non-military challengespush through difficult reforms to enhance harmony across government agencies and departments and welcome transparency With defence matters

all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App More Top NewsBy Deba R Mohanty Allocations for defence have been made a part of Union Budget 2016-17 An outlay of Rs 249099 crore has been proposed as budget estimates (BE) for the financial year 2016-17 which is more than Rs 3000 crore from last year’s BE of Rs 246727 crore but a modest increase from last year’s revised estimates (RE) of Rs 224636 crore A sum of Rs 162759 crore has been allocated as ‘revenue’ expenses while ‘capital’ account has received Rs 86340 crore Revenue has increased by nearly Rs 20000 crore against the revised estimates of Rs 143236 crore (which was revised against a BE of Rs 152139 crore while capital account has witnessed a modest increase of Rs 5000 crore from last year’s revised estimates of Rs 81400 crore (capital BE was Rs 94588 crore in FY 2015-16) Non-plan outlays for ‘defence pensions’ which is not included in the defence budget have accounted for nearly 65 percent of total pension liabilities of Rs 123368 crore while outlays for Defence (Miscellaneous) is Rs 118466 crore These broad categories of expenses are for ‘national defence’ purposes which only cater to armed forces and their needs If one enlarges the scope of national defence into larger ‘national security domain’ cumulative expenses (allocations for police paramilitary forces military related investments in atomic energy space etc) could account for nearly 27 percent of central government expenditure Items like ‘network for defence services (Rs 2710 crore) atomic energy industry (Rs 2778 crore) atomic energy research (Rs 3123 crore) border infrastructure and management (Rs 3560 crore) that have national security dimensions witnessed reasonable investments How does then one look at India’s defence budget Is it sufficient deficient or reasonable There are no easy answers Allocation of resources may provide certain clues in terms of trends and forecasting but it is a Herculean task to gauge the degree of effectiveness of investments on the armed forces If one looks at previous budgets for the last one decade or so one would really be disappointed Capital expenditure has witnessed massive ‘unspent syndrome’ Revenue expenses have increased Pensions and other liabilities thanks primarily to implementation of 7th pay commission as well as OROP have increased MoD has approved more than Rs 300000 crore worth of projects Technological and system obsolescence has put Indian arsenal in a difficult situation Needs of the armed forces both conventional systems as well as advanced ones are increasing Against such a backdrop the current defence allocations seem inadequate But Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar seems to be having other ideas Let’s consider the following: he has chided his armed forces as ‘erratic buyers’ instructed his service chiefs to review pending and existing projects and weed out the old and irrelevant proposals has emphasised more on indigenous projects argued that fighter and other big ticket items could save money through collaborative or domestic production And if this not all he made a definitive statement in Parliament just prior to budget day that if pensions are included in defence expenditure it can account for 22 percent of GDP hinting that budgetary jugglery can lead to confusing perceptions Parrikar’s assertions and arguments need to be placed in the larger context of resources allocations that need rationalization and re-orientation A pruned budget this year is indicative of three inter-related points: a) if the budget is used properly it can always be reasonable which otherwise means that demands from the forces will receive in-depth scrutiny from now on; b) unspent money from capital account need not witness a huge increase contrary to perceived demands which can be adjusted against purchases from within preferably through ‘Make in India’ and collaborative routes; and c) there could be further rationalization of resources allocations in time to come as there is an attempt to reduce import dependency Parrikar stated in Parliament that MoD has been able to reduce the import bill by Rs 1000 crore (from Rs 35000 crore in 2014-15 to Rs 34000 crore in 2015-16) This year’s budget appears inadequate for defence sector against perceived demands However there is an attempt by the current government to rationalize allocations a process that is likely to continue well into future What kind of results are we likely to see in future remains to be seen However a new approach to resources allocations through a realistic prism is what is indicated in this budget By: PTI | Mumbai | Published: April 19 2017 2:06 pm Priyanka Chopra was the first person to message Parineeti Chopra after the launch of Parineeti’s

Summer League might be his last shot at the dream job Or in his case last shots “I’m giving the NBA one more shot while I’m still young I guess you could say” McKinney Jones said Most players in summer league spend their time with one franchise McKinney Jones is among a handful of players lucky enough to hook up with two teams for summer games this season He’s been with Indiana for the Orlando Pro Summer League that ends on Thursday then flies to Las Vegas to connect with San Antonio’s entry in the NBA Summer League that starts on Friday The way he sees it doubling up this summer doubles his chance of a training-camp invite this fall the next step he hopes toward reaching the NBA for real ‘Experience is very important” the 6-foot-5 McKinney Jones said “I feel like my first summer was such a blur It’s hard to even remember a lot of the games Now things have slowed down Everything kind of comes to you slower you can control the game better you have more control over yourself I think some guys are different but for me that first summer everything was moving 1000 mph” Plenty of guys are playing in two summer leagues heading to Las Vegas this week after participating in either Orlando or Salt Lake City But most of those will stay with one team that whole time McKinney Jones is among the few who will play for two teams as will Dylan Ennis who signed with Oklahoma City for Orlando then will meet up with Golden State for Las Vegas “Being around both organizations it’s great for me” Ennis said “OKC they’ve shown me a great time already They’ve taught me a lot of things already that I can take going forward And I’m sure Golden State will do the same” Naz Mitrou-Long is another player planning to double-up this summer: He’s been with Indiana this week and will play for Sacramento in Las Vegas “I know it’s a big opportunity” said Mitrou-Long a 6-4 guard undrafted out of Iowa State last month “I’ve gotten a lot of good feedback from the Pacers I worked out for them before the draft and I think they liked how I did” There will be others on the two-team list by the time play gets done in Las Vegas; inevitably one team will pluck someone from another like how Willie Reed started playing for Miami in 2015 and then got signed to a $650000 one-year NBA contract by Brooklyn Reed then played with the Heat last season and is a free agent again this summer And every team is studying every other team during the summer anyway looking for that hidden gem who has been overlooked and might be a potential training-camp invite or a possibility to fill an NBA G League roster where he could earn about $30000 But McKinney Jones knows these are critical auditions with the teams whose jerseys he will wear “You want to show them you can make the right plays take the open shot really grind on defense” McKinney Jones said “You try to make a statement on that front make the right play make the right reads and you’ve got to make the little plays I think that’s what teams are really looking for in this summer situation” McKinney Jones has been around the block a few times in his basketball life He was barely recruited out of high school and started his college career at Missouri-Kansas City before transferring to Miami where he helped the Hurricanes win an Atlantic Coast Conference title He appeared in two NBA preseason games with his hometown Milwaukee Bucks in 2013 spent the summer of 2014 with Miami and San Antonio returned to summer league with Atlanta in 2015 and is back this year with the Pacers and Spurs He’s won titles in what was then called the NBA Development League and in the Hungarian League He moved to Israel and played for a while moved to France and played there for a while If no camp invite or chance to even be on one of the league’s new two-way contracts comes this time he’ll likely go back overseas and play there instead of trying to get by on a meager G League salary “I feel like I get my foot in the door I’m the kind of player where if I do all the little stuff well enough I can stick” McKinney Jones said “So that’s what I’m looking for now just a chance to stick my foot in the door That’s what I want out of this summer I’ve got a family now to worry about It’s time” For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App More Top NewsKozhikode: Police officials on Saturday forcibly

was released by the film’s publicist on Twitter What is the issue and why is it important for Kollywood The story until now: The issue first came to the spotlight on the sets of Billa Pandi where production was halted as technicians stopped work over travel allowance payments Irked by the disruption in the shooting TFPC had asked FEFSI to reprimand the Technicians Union In response FEFSI pulled up the technician union for acting unilaterally and had also asked member Dhanapal to apologise for lashing out at TFPC president Vishal using inappropriate language However continuous disagreements over allowances ensued between the bodies TFPC had asked for TU to be derecognised a demand which FEFSI said they can not comply with “It is not possible for us to isolate one particular union The 24 unions have been united for almost forty years” said Angamuthu Shanmugam General Secretary FEFSI to Indianexpresscom Another bone of contention is the determination of ‘general conditions’ — the time period of work the number of people to be employed overtime wages etc Thus FEFSI instructed its members to not work from August 1 TFPC on the other hand has said that there is no change in their stand and that film shoots will continue as per schedule despite the strike In a statement released recently TFPC also has said that while they aren’t averse to working with FEFSI members producers can’t be expected to work exclusively with FEFSI members The effect: FEFSI which has around 24000 members is bound to be affected due to a shortage of work “Around 10000 jobs will be affected Livelihoods of thousands of members depend on this We don’t want to stop working but have been pushed to this situation This is an issue of rights We have agreed to a lot of their demands” said Shanmugam to Indianexpresscom On the other hand S R Prabhu Treasurer TFPC has said that they did not refuse to work with the Federation “We never reduced the salary We just want to regulate the allowances While they can work for ads and serials why should we work only with them” he asked “Whenever there is night travel they ask for an extra day wage for every 300 km travelled Say we travel 650 km we have to pay them additional wages of three days Also there are disagreements on the number of people we require For example even if the heroine doesn’t need makeup they expect us to have an assistant a costume person a makeup artist and hairdresser just because there is a girl in the frame This is not fair and adds to our costs” he said He further added “We have our own right to hire who is required for the job The only requisite is that we should pay them proper wages; that we are ready to We don’t want to hurt the workers We are ready to work with them They are not our enemies But at the same time producers should also not be harmed” Film production will face hurdles but we will figure a way out added Prabhu What’s next “What FEFSI might do next is appeal to the state government” says Film trade analyst Sreedhar Pillai “But that can prove to be tricky as the government already has issues like movie taxes pending with the industry So all of those will also come into focus if the government enters the picture” Pillai said But what if the deadlock continues We might have to wait “Many crews have taken a break as they want to be neutral and not offend both Vishal and FEFSI” he added For all the latest Entertainment News download Indian Express App IE Online Media Services Pvt Ltd More Related NewsWritten by Priyanka Sahoo | Mumbai | Published: March 22 2017 2:42 am Top News TEN DAYS after the Medical Council of India (MCI) instructed state governments to conduct admissions to all medical and dental colleges including private and deemed colleges have decided to challenge the central regulating authority According to the March 11 notification from MCI admissions to all medical and dental colleges will be based on the marks obtained by applicants in the National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test (NEET) and will be done through the state-held Common Admission Process (CAP) This means that private and deemed colleges will lose their autonomy over the counseling process “We have decided to file a petition in the Supreme Court challenging the MCI’s instruction It violates the fundamental rights of private institutes to conduct their own admissions” said Kamal Kishore Kadam president Association of Management of Unaided Private Medical and Dental colleges Meanwhile the state government which has decided to go ahead with the MCI order has issued notifications to all private and deemed medical colleges “Following the order from the Government of India the Directorate of Medical Education and Research (DMER) has issued notifications to colleges” said Rajagopal Devara secretary for medical education “(Private and deemed) Colleges have been asked for feedback We have made it very clear that we want to conduct our own counseling” said Kadam The state government has been trying to gain control over admissions in private and deemed colleges for two years In the academic year 2016-17 the DMER had issued a notice that it would conduct admissions to private and deemed institutes which was challenged by the colleges in the High Court While the court ruled in favour of the colleges the Supreme Court in September 2016 ordered that DMER conduct all admissions By then admissions to most seats had been conducted and while the apex court did not term those invalid it said that the around 350 seats still vacant would be filled by the state For the academic year 2017-18 it said the decision for deemed and private medical colleges would be taken by the Bombay High Court The high court is however yet to hear the matter “Private colleges can go to SC but since there is no stay order on last year’s SC order the DMER will conduct the admissions this year” said Devara The DMER has recommended that the state take a strong stand against the colleges that refuse to participate in the CAP “We will prepare a list of the colleges who refuse to admit students through CAP We will then seek advice from the law and judiciary department on what action we can take It may so happen that the admissions done bypassing the CAP will be deemed invalid” said DMER Director Pravin Shinghare “Unless the SC decides otherwise we will go ahead with last year’s order” he added For all the latest Mumbai News download Indian Express App More Top NewsWritten by Saritha Rai | Published: November 24 2014 12:25 am Zoho is India’s largest
