Dalits and women both have been considered the most marginalized sections. The social history of India registers this side-lining, of undergoing the atrocities by them for centuries. Even after the different movements that took place not only in a verbal action, being in the books, but also a strong rejection had been seen of any authority. The Prime Minister, Narender Modi, has also now taken an initiative to add up to this. The question one needs to ask is what is actually the way out of this kind of submission which is internalized? The movements saw an overcome from these submissions but what really needs to be done is to give these people an assurance of self-development. This scheme of providing entrepreneurship to the side-lined is thus a huge step in the development of one and all irrespective of their gender or caste.

The PM launched this scheme in the Noida NCR region on Tuesday which will be converting “job-seekers into job-creators. This scheme is going to transform the lives of people from Dalit and tribal communities.” He asserted that “Dalits and poor people if given an opportunity can bring in various reforms in the country. That’s my vision for Stand up India”. The proposal provides a loan from 10 lakh to 1 crore, from over 1.25 lakhs branches of banks, to all these job-creators. This gives these people the liberty to work for their own. This scheme will give the entrepreneur tag to almost 2.5 lakh of the Indians.

With the air of Dalit empowerment, from a recent case of student Rohit Vemulla and the debates over the reservation system prevailing in the country, this event took place commemorating Jagjivan Ram, a former agriculture and defence minister, on his birth anniversary. Modi acknowledged his importance in the governance of India and said “It is unfortunate that contribution of such people is being ignored.”

The most interesting of this proposal was his flagging off of 5100 e-rickshaws that are provided by the Bhartiya Micro Credit (BMC) under the Pradhanmantri Mudra Yojna.  They will be given to non-owners of rickshaws and will be beneficial for the poor. He asserted the significance of such an action he stated “There were few autowalas who did not own their own rickshaws and half of what they earn were spend on rent.” He even booked the first e-rickshaw from Ola cabs. Modi’s vision was addressed in his Independence Day speech which will come into force from the 15th April, 2016. This launch programme observed presence of other ministers like Arun Jaitley (Finance Minister), Union Minister for Culture and Tourism and Union Minister of State for Finance.

 There has been a 26 per cent increase in Cyber Attacks in India and Mumbai, New Delhi and Bengaluru together accounted for roughly 38 per cent of all attacks in the July-September period, a new report said on Wednesday.

The report prepared by Bengaluru-headquartered telecom solutions provider Subex identified over 3,500 modular malware samples in the country, registering a whopping 37 per cent increase.

Smart cities, financial services and transportation sectors lead the rankings in terms of cyber attacks, said the “State of Internet of Things (IoT) Security Report” for the third quarter (July-September period).

“As the digital footprint of India increases through capital intensive projects, hackers are targeting data and large scale disruption like never before,” said said Vinod Kumar, Managing Director and CEO, Subex.

“The increase in cyber attacks against the country and the strong geopolitical correlation indicate high levels of interest in targeting our critical infrastructure. Hackers are working to improve their ability to monetize cyber attacks,” he warned.

Malware of varying degrees of sophistication are being reported from a variety of deployments, including new projects surrounding renewable energy.

Most malware detected (36 per cent) could be traced to sources on the Dark Web while as much as 14 per cent of malware couldn’t be traced to a known source pointing to the arrival of new actors and malware shops on the scene,” the findings showed.

The detection of malware connected with critical infrastructure projects has also registered an increase.

“This implies that hackers are targeting large scale disruption and are working to increase the cost associated with managing such projects as also negatively impact future investments in them,” the report added.

Independent hackers are increasingly feeling the need to monetize cyber attacks as the unit cost of malware has risen in the last quarter. Further, it is becoming increasingly difficult to source high-grade malware from multiple sources due to various factors, the report added. (IANS)
