have to pay higher ground rents besides letting in more serving bureaucrats as members The state revenue department has formulated a new lease policy for clubs and gymkhanas existing on government land Sources said the policy would soon be tabled before the state cabinet for approval The ground rents for these facilities many of which came up in the pre-Independence era have not been revised since allotment Their rents are as low as Rs 25 per square foot annually On the other hand membership fees in some South Mumbai posh clubs which are now regarded as bastions of the elite range from Rs 1-3 lakh annually to over Rs 15 lakh for a lifetime membership An earlier attempt by the state government to increase lease rents for these facilities in 2003 was stayed by the Bombay High Court following objections raised by the managements of these clubs and gymkhanas However government sources said the court stay was subsequently lifted in 2008 The law department had opined there was no legal impediment to revise the lease rents by drafting a new lease policy said a senior official While a few clubs such as the Cricket Club of India and the Bombay Gymkhana have offered temporary or service memberships to serving bureaucrats the draft policy document has now proposed to make this a rule The department has proposed a five per cent quota in service membership for civil servants serving with the Centre or the state government While officials argued it was just a proposal at this stage and the final decision in this regard would rest with the cabinet some conceded the contentious clause could become a point of debate and criticism Sources said the initial draft had also recommended a membership quota for ministers and legislators but after apprehensions were raised by the finance department the idea was later dropped In justification of the retained membership quota proposed for civil servants a source said “The government owns the land Clubs have built recreational facilities on it and have enrolled members The government is well within its right to ask those running such facilities to admit some of the members whom it would want to be enrolled for enjoying the facilities” It was clarified that no concessional fee had been sought for enrolling them There are 18 such facilities in Mumbai — Cricket Club of India Bombay Gymkhana PG Hindu Gymkhana Parsi Gymkhana Islam Gymkhana Wodehouse Gymkhana Club Princess Victoria Mary Gymkhana Catholic Gymkhana Grand Medical College Gymkhana Police Gymkhana Western India Football Association (Cooperage grounds) Breach Candy Club (all South Mumbai); Golf Club Chembur Gymkhana Khar Gymkhana Arts Club and Willingdon Catholic Gymkhana (all Mumbai suburbs) The lease of nine gymkhanas had lapsed a decade ago said sources Some have secured lease renewal for 15 years in the absence of a policy Depending on the plot’s size the new policy has proposed three categories of clubs and gymkhanas Facilities spread over 20000 square metres have been clubbed in the ‘A’ category those in the 10000-20000 square metres in the ‘B’ category and smaller plots in the ‘C’ category The formula that has been proposed for the new ground rent is that all those facilities found in the ‘A’ class category would have to pay an annual lease rent equal to 1 per cent of the value arrived at by computing 10 per cent of the prevalent ready reckoner rates The ‘B’ class facilities would have to pay 05 per cent of the same value while those in the ‘C’ class category would be charged 025 per cent The department has also proposed a revision in rents every five years While retaining the condition that such facilities would be permitted to rent out the plot for non-sporting activity for 45 days in a year the government has also increased the rents payable to the government for such purposes The managements would have to inform the Collector’s office in advance about such functions A 10 per cent increase every three years in such government rentals has also been proposed Taking cognisance of the complaints that the grounds were being let out for private functions of its members only the new policy draft prohibits offline booking “Bookings will have to be done online and will be open to all” said a source The new draft also prohibits the managements from monopolising catering and event contracts at such facilities While open space activists have been demanding that a portion of all such facilities be mandatorily kept open for the general public it is still unclear if the government would

people who are in shackles metaphorically speaking Will they be unshackled Top News A decade ago as a student in Ghatsila I often travelled to my college in Jamshedpur by train At the Ghatsila station I would see some women in white sari and blouse They would be carrying huge plastic boxes besides handbags and a smaller cloth bag for tiffin box and water bottle There was another thing I noticed about them They didn’t look fit to carry the load: They looked that undernourished Four years ago when I came to Pakur to work as a doctor I understood that those women were auxiliary nurses and midwives (ANMs) They work with the Jharkhand government and are posted at primary health centres additional primary health centres and health sub-centres The health and medical care system in Jharkhand depends on them They go from village to village one tola to another often on foot carrying their bags and boxes doing ante-natal check-ups of pregnant women immunising pregnant women and newborn babies and children conducting deliveries prescribing and distributing medicines to various patients visiting homes that have reported childbirth weighing newborn babies working as supervisors in national programmes like the Pulse Polio identifying patients of malaria and kala azar identifying children suffering from AFP (acute flaccid paralysis a consequence of contracting polio) malnourished children organising health camps mobilising people in villages to attend health camps immunisation sessions and other health-related programmes co-ordinating with anganwadi sevikas and school teachers to distribute iron and albendazole tablets to school-going children calculating figures and compiling reports and doing hundred other work The ANMs I met in Pakur were not different from the ones I had seen in Ghatsila: Thin and sickly as malnourished as the pregnant women they advised The life of an ANM I saw was full of hardship I found out that the big plastic box is a vaccine carrier in which the nurses carry various vaccines stored at an appropriate temperature provided by cold frozen ice packs When I heard about the new diktat of the government that all artistic portraits of Birsa Munda be shown without shackles I wondered if it really made any difference How will shackling or unshackling affect Birsa There are real people who are in shackles metaphorically speaking Will they be unshackled For instance who will unshackle the ANMs With the limited means the government provides the ANMs in Jharkhand are trying to provide the public an approximation of all the facilities it has promised Calmly patiently despite their own poor health they keep the health department running working more than perhaps even doctors In addition to their professional capabilities they have to be social enough to deal with domineering anganwadi sevikas and sahiyas — or worse their husbands who often claim to have political clout They need to be fearless to face when the public gets unruly When the work on the field is over and they have to attend evening briefings in the headquarters these women have to be strong enough to face criticism A typical day of an ANM in Pakur is perhaps like this She must be up at 4:30am or 5am As Pakur has severe water crisis she needs to fill up water first from a hand pump or a municipal tap outside her house She must then cook for herself and family get children ready for school and catch a local train a Vikram or a bhutbhutiya to travel to her centre or immunisation site Many even have to walk a good distance with all their paraphernalia — stethoscope sphygmomanometer weighing machine and so on At the site if sevikas and sahiyas are good ANMs can breathe; otherwise they have to clean and ready the place and even call the beneficiaries themselves If these weren’t enough they are sent to faraway sites often without a mode of transport to fill in for absent ANMs Their faults are enumerated and they have to endure threats that their salaries would be stopped or they would be paid only half or a third of their salary) or their jobs will be terminated By the time they are ready to return home probably after sunset these women are unlikely to have even a gram of life left in them to spend time with their families watch TV serials like other ordinary women or just live their lives No wonder the blood pressure of many ANMs hangs at 100/60 mmHg One fainted during an evening briefing during the last Pulse Polio round Recently an ANM was threatened by the husband of the sahayika of an anganwadi that he would undress her in public Though that rogue apologised the woman knew she couldn’t press charges because that might lead to further trouble as she needs to visit that anganwadi regularly and alone Yet officers of the health department are always told to remind the ANMs that every programme is being personally monitored by Someone-Big-Up-There-In-Delhi and that if they don’t perform well they would have to face harsh consequences Does anyone bother if the ANMs many of them contract workers are paid in proportion to the work they do Why can’t those on contract be made regular and provided some job security In Jharkhand where more ANMs are needed why isn’t there fresh recruitment Birsa Munda is being unshackled in portraits When will these real women in real life and time be
