Agra: In order to safeguard the relations with 25 million Indian diasporas, Uttar Pradesh government will soon make policies and schemes for them, state minister Balwant Singh Ramoowalia said on Tuesday.

On the penultimate day of the maiden ‘UP Pravasi Diwas’ underway here, the minister, who was in charge of the event said, “immediate and serious engagement with the NRIs was imperative to bring in investment, create business opportunities and guide India’s workforce.”

On initiatives of the Uttar Pradesh government, Sanjiv Sharan, principal secretary in the NRI department, talked about the newly formed department that would focus on solving grievances of NRIs and helping investors in the state.

A coffee table book was also being conceptualised for promoting the policies and familiarising NRIs with progress and opportunities in the state, he added.

Saran said the department would launch a new portal for NRIs to facilitate and resolve their issues.

FICCI secretary general A Didar Singh spoke about the importance of connecting the Indian diaspora both emotionally and through technology.
“Technology like creating forums for solving issues related to business establishments and showcasing the ease of doing business in the state would not only encourage investment opportunities but also connect the NRIs back to their roots,” he said.

Congratulating the Uttar Pradesh government for the great initiative of engaging NRIs with their roots, Charu Mathur, CEO of Overseas Indian Facilitation Centre at the ministry of overseas Indian affairs, focused on the joint responsibly of both state and the Centre to give a pleasant experience to the NRIs in their business ventures in India.(IANS)

The Yogi Adityanath Government has ordered all the madarsas across the states to take the classes in Hindi and English medium and not in Urdu. The decision came after the recommendations of the Arbi-Farsi Urdu Madarsa Board.

Madarsas have been at the forefront of criticism over the curriculum of their teachings. They are schools for Islamic instruction which deprives the students of the career-driven subjects like Mathematics, Science, English and Social Science. The government has also ordered to introduce all these subjects in the curriculum.

The order was one of the promises of CM Yogi Adityanath to make his vision of modern madarsa true. Earlier, he had rejected the demand of shutting down of Madarsas stating that it will not help eradicate the basic problems and he further gave a view of modernized madarsa by including modern subjects. The recommendation, made on 15th May, also stated to follow the syllabus and books of NCERT. The suggestions were accepted by the cabinet on 22 May.
