make the most of the FIFA U17 World Cup coming to the country in 2017 “(It’s) Absolutely massive Everyone is looking forward to it everyone is excited and the guys are waiting to welcome the World Cup to India It’s going to be massive it’s good for India because people are appreciating ISL and FIFA coming to India is a big big thing” Tendulkar told Fifacom in an exclusive interview File photo of Sachin Tendulkar AFP Tendulkar’s Blasters were beaten in the final last year and finished bottom of the table this season but the Master Blaster is more worried about the brand of football they play than the results He also admitted that the popularity of the sport is nowhere close to what cricket enjoys in India but the process of idol-creation means that the sport and the ISL will steadily garner attention: “Football is getting popular – it’s nowhere near cricket but I don’t like comparisons It’s about appreciating each and every sport – the skills the hard work and the sacrifices the players make Each individual should be respected for that and Indian people are appreciating ISL in a big way I’m thrilled that their response has been special and people are following not only the foreign players but the domestic players too They are becoming heroes role models and overall that is how football in India is going to grow” he said The Blasters get record attendances in their stadium in Kochi (an average of around 60000 per match) but the national team’s performances are in huge contrast to the ISL extravaganza India won just one match in their preliminary World Cup Qualification group and Tendulkar’s suggestion to improve the national showing is to strengthen domestic football “I think the infrastructure of how football is run in India is going to become critical How the season is played also becomes very important – you want to try to make your domestic season as competitive as possible and then find the best talent who are part of the ISL With the exposure of having rubbed shoulders with some of the top footballers from all parts of the world the Indian team will eventually benefit as well” he said Click here to read the full interview The USOpen will experiment during its qualifying rounds this year with scoreboard clocks to limit how much time elapses between points and how long pre-match warmups or mid-match clothing changes can last Also set to be tried out at Flushing Meadows in August’s qualifying matches: letting coaches communicate with their players from the stands between points Depending on how the test runs go those changes could wind up being used during the US Open’s main draw in 2018 according to Stacey Allaster the US Tennis Association’s chief executive for professional tennis Representational image Reuters “We’re all interested in being relevant to . fans” Allaster said in a telephone interview Thursday “Sports have to change” During a meeting at the French Open she said the Grand Slam Board “supported trying out these initiatives” during qualifying junior and college invitational matches in New York this year The International Tennis Federation rules committee granted a waiver for the trials “We’ll gather all of the results and the data and then make a determination with how we go forward for 2018” Allaster said “The goal is to deliver our product to the fans when they tune in and to improve the flow of the competition while the fans are watching” The USTA’s plans to try time clocks and in-match coaching were first reported Thursday on the website of the British newspaper The Telegraph The serve clock — similar to a shot clock in basketball — would allow for 25 seconds between points Allaster said That’s how much time players are now given on the ATP Tour with 20 seconds the limit at Grand Slam tournaments but those restrictions are based on each chair umpire’s determination because there aren’t actually clocks visible to players or spectators on court The USTA took a step in this direction last year by using a 20-second serve clock on scoreboards for the US Open’s junior and college invitational tournaments Before the start of play the clocks in New York in 2017 will dole out an 8-minute limit split up this way: 2 minutes from when players step on court until the coin toss; 5 minutes for the warmup; 1 minute until the opening point There isn’t anything that strict governing that period now so fans watching on TV or a mobile device can be left wondering when exactly a match will begin “We know when we turn on the television at 4 o’clock on a Sunday afternoon that there will be a kickoff for an NFL game” she said “ESPN has asked us to have consistency with when ‘first ball’ is going to be” for tennis For breaks to return to the locker room for a change of clothing during a match the present rule simply allows “reasonable time” so Allaster said the intention is to pick a specific number For US Open qualifying she said “it’s probably going to be 5 to 7 or 8 minutes” with some flexibility based on how far a particular court is from a locker room Coaching has long been barred during matches at Grand Slam tournaments (the WTA does let coaches go to the sideline to speak to players during breaks in the action at tour events) but Allaster noted that it’s often clear that communication goes on anyway The idea is to bring it out into the open From their seats in the stands coaches will be allowed to speak or motion to their players when they’re on the same end of the court — so long as they don’t “interrupt the pace of play” she said “We know it already happens today through signals and so forth” she said “We know it’s part of the game and we wanted to test it” Written by Devendra Pandey | Mumbai | Updated: August 9 2016 10:21 am Anurag

left-right jan-dhan left-right…The purpose of this essay is to recall history And to ask how should we move One of the grievances against banks and one of the stated grounds for nationalisation of banks in 1969 was that they did not serve the poor The answer was ‘financial inclusion’ Many understood what it meant few could comprehend the enormous challenge it posed Not much was done towards financial inclusion for a long time after 1969 except that banks were directed to open more branches in rural areas Banks found it was quite profitable to open branches in small towns and large villages Customers were willing to deposit their money happy to make small withdrawals and demanded no other service Banking meant a pass book and withdrawal slips It was easy banking even lazy banking FINANCIAL INCLUSION BEGINS In 2005 the Government and the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) directed the banks to open “no frills accounts” Since the accounts were allowed even with zero balance they were also known as “zero balance accounts” Soon this programme too became target-driven Banks chased numbers The RBI took stock and in 2010 it asked the banks to prepare and implement a financial inclusion plan from 2010 to 2013 In 2012 the “no frills accounts” got a truly sarkari name — the Basic Savings Bank Deposit Account (BSBDA) In 2013 banks were directed to extend the financial inclusion plan to 2016 The results — rather the numbers — were impressive At the end of March 2014 the number of basic accounts that had been opened stood at 243 crore Blink again 243 crore There were no boasts no advertisements The biggest challenge was dormancy Most zero balance accounts had a zero balance and no activity whatsoever The first customers to take advantage of this achievement were the women’s self help groups They demanded credit from banks and got credit because of the thrust given to the SHG movement and because the women were non-defaulting customers However the big step forward was when the UPA government launched the Direct Benefit Transfer (DBT) scheme The Government directed that all persons who had enrolled for work under MGNREGA must have a bank account (or a post office account) and that the wages must be credited to those accounts Millions of bank accounts that had been lying dormant sprung to activity The next important step was the government’s decision to make cash transfers under 28 schemes to these accounts The low-hanging fruit were scholarships pensions payments to ASHA workers and the like AADHAAR-ENABLED TRANSFERS Alongside financial inclusion the UPA government had launched Aadhaar the Unique Identity Number programme We realised that if the bank account was seeded with the Aadhaar of the account holder it would open the door for better and more efficient management of the numerous subsidy schemes that were plagued by duplication falsification and leakages Practically everyone receives a subsidy — for the LPG cylinder food sugar kerosene fertilisers and so on Against opposition the UPA government decided to transfer the LPG subsidy to Aadhaar-seeded bank accounts It was rolled out quite smoothly in 121 districts and then extended to 291 districts but it ran into opposition instigated by those who had profited under the old system The government buckled under pressure put the transfers on hold and appointed a
