Odd Even

Odd Even

Rant

Anything and everything that comes out of Arvind Kejriwal and Aam Adami Party is shit as they have large intestine in place of their brains. He is the product and creation of English Main Stream Media. That means he is a total hype and absolutely no substance in terms policy, execution and governance.

In fact he is a big blot on brand IIT Kharagpur and IIT should seriously consider withdrawing the certificate given to him. I have zero sympathy for these Communist, Naxal and Anarchist Pigs. They are the brain tumor of humanity. Sooner this tumor is removed, preferably surgically, better for the humanity in general and India in particular.

Now that you know my view, opinion and bias against Arvind Kejriwal and AAP, I as a responsible citizen of India, I can not really allow my fellow citizens of India and residents of Delhi to suffer for their stupidity in electing the #AAPtards to Delhi Assembly.

As a duty to my nation I am proposing an alternative solution for Delhi’s “Odd-Even Scheme” and possibly other major cities and towns. They can adopt this scheme to improve the quality of life of the citizens.

Problem statement

Delhi is suffering from severe air pollution and vehicular emissions is one of the many contributors to the air pollution. The Delhi High Court has [pulled up][5] Delhi Government for their inaction in curbing the pollution and ordered it to take action.

The master troll and King of #AAPtards Arvind Kejriwal has come up with a hare brain Odd-Even formula to curb vehicular pollution. Under this “scheme” private cars running on Petrol or Diesel was not allowed to be used on odd days if the car’s registration number is Odd and on even days if the car’s registration number is Even.

The “scheme” was launched in January 2016 on pilot bases for 15 days and was prematurely announced a success by “alleged” journalists, editors and so-called "intellectuals" on day one!

I have not come across any scientific study done to measure the impact of the scheme in these areas.

  • Impact on air pollution and air quality [Report][6]
  • Impact on traffic and congestion.
  • Impact on public transport.
  • Impact on individual citizens affected.

[6]:  http://www.firstpost.com/india/odd-even-scheme-arrested-peak-pollution-level-delhi-govt-submits-in-high-court-2576392.html (As per Report)

Issues with existing scheme

The major issues with this scheme are

  • Only applies to privately owned cars running on petrol and diesel
  • Too many exclusions and exemptions
  • A small number of private car owners penalized disproportionately. They have to forgo convenience of commuting in their own personal vehicles for almost 40% of the month!

As per the various reports here the number of vehicles affected by this scheme range from 2% to 6% which is insignificant to resolve the air pollution issue.

A better scheme

A better formula should have at least the following qualities

  • Reduces total number of vehicles on the road on any given day.
  • Does not disproportionately penalize small set of only car owners.
  • Does not have too many exemptions and exclusions

  • Does not promote or force multiple car ownership and encourages true people’s participation.

  • Does not provide opportunity to law enforcement agencies and personnel to indulge in corruption.

  • Considering the above criteria for implementing the scheme should put the prohibition on vehicles on the road based on the last digit of the registration number. For example all vehicles which have registration number ending in 3 will not be allowed on the road on 3rd, 13th & 23rd of a given month. Same way a vehicle with registration number ending in 8 will be barred from plying on the road on 8th, 18th and 28th of the calendar month.

    If you look at the table bellow you will see that individual vehicle owner will be affected for between 2 to 4 days in a given month or better 35 to 43 days a year and citizens will be more than happy to comply as he/she sees much fairer and equitable treatment to all others vehicle owners.

    Number of days in month vehicle with given Reg. No. can not ply on the road

    Also the exemption given is only to the emergency and essential services and their numbers are a small percentage of total vehicles.

    This scheme will actually reduce vehicular traffic by close to 10% and should result in drastic reduction in traffic congestion and reduced air pollution without putting extreme stress on public utility like Delhi Metro System or other public transport.

    This scheme should be enforced on ALL Vehicles running on fossil fuel irrespective of their size or type of fossil fuel used.

    Letter to TRAI on Net Neutrality and threat posed by Facebook’s Free Basics

    Dear Sir/Madam,

    I would like to bring to your notice the scam/fraud campaign being run on Facebook website to force/hoodwink facebook users in supporting Free Basics.

    I would humbly request you to discard all those Free Basics Support mails generated and sent via facebook.com platform as the same is done using deception and arm twisting their users.

    AFA net neutrality is concerned, please de-link cost/price of the access to internet from the Freedom to access the content by the users.

    If any provider is willing to or offering the Internet access at gratis/free of cost they should be allowed to do so with following general guiding principles.

    The service provider

    1. Can not restrict the content that user wants access.
    2. Can not put artificial data or speed limits on the content.

    3. Should not demand that the content provider(s) has to register with them or take any kind of permission from the provider. (Such a move by provider is direct infringement of your (TRAI) powers as given to you by the Constitution of India. You sure don’t want to dilute / forego your powers)

    4. Can not collect and share the activity of the users other then as mandated by existing telecommunication laws.

    5. Can not force the users to sign up for a specific website, portal or platform to access the internet content.

    I am sure your policy will be in line with above listed points to make the Internet free (as in Freedom) and help India’s large young demography to gain the Demographic Dividand our respected Prime Minister Shree Narendra Modi Ji talks about.

    I have full faith in your ability to protect India’s political, geographical, economical & strategic interests.

    With warm regards,

    Ban on SMS Gateways: Idiocity of DoT and Indian Government

    Almost for more then a week now idiots at Department of Telecom, Govt. of India has banned Text Message Services (SMS) from SMS Gateways in the name of security!

    This idiots even don’t know what is security. The Indian Government has misurably failed in all accounts – threats from Terrorists and Naxals, Hyper Inflation, Food security, failure to deliver jobs, food, health and education and number of problems created by successive Congress Governments for last 60+ years.

    Now they want to censor the flow of information in the name of Security! This is direct attack on freedom of speech as given in our Constitution.

    Let is protest strongly against such high handed approach of Governent of India for such a huge constitutional breach of rights of the citizens of India.

    Citizen Identification System

    Many years ago I made this presentation in on of the FOSS event – FreeDel at JNU, New Delhi in hope that some decision makers will be there and will be able to catch the idea.

    My presentation was attended by huge audience of 6 people. 🙂

    Election Commission of Maharashtra Web site compromised?

    Today I went to check my voter roll entry at Election Commission of Maharashtra. However, Mozilla Firefox gave following warning.

    reported-attack-site-mozilla-firefox

    And here is the explanation given by Google

    google-safe-browsing-diagnostic-page-for-ceomaharashtragovin-mozilla-firefox

    I really wonder why our government can not run a simple web site securely? Is this a way by which our “talented” government servants sabotaging information technology for e-governance and Right to Information Act? Or am I reading too much from this incidence?

    Isn’t it quite an co-incidence that this happened when the new CEC is appointed?

    Criminals in Indian Politics

    Finally we got some good news. Honorable Supreme Court of India rejected the plea of Sanjay Dutt for contesting General Election 2009.

    I have no issue with Sanjay Dutt as person or as actor. I even liked some of his movies like “Naam”, Munnabhai I and II.

    However, he has erred and he was punished, however lightly, and he and all criminals should be stopped from entering Indian Parliament. That is in the best interest of the country.

    Sanjay Dutt’s case was and is very high profile. It has sent a clear signal to public at large that if you are high, powerful and connected, you can get away with anything. For him, even the law of the land was changed, in the form of repeal of the TADA. That has brought cynicism in the general public.

    I hope our politicians will respect the verdict of the SC and will not do, what they did with Shah Bano Case.

    Failed Indian Government

    I am no fan of cricket and do not watch, play or follow cricket avidly. I could not even name all 15 players in Indian Cricket Team. I just give a cursory glance to Indian Cricket to use it in routine conversations.

    The recent development in Indian Premier League matches relocation to outside India is a big blow to Indian Democracy and abject failure of current Indian Government to uphold my constitutional rights of freedom to do business, play and pursuits of happiness and wellbeing.

    The jihadists and terrorists have won the battle and this current incompetent Indian Government has lost all the rights to stay in power. This government should be sacked immediately and upcoming elections to Indian Parliament should be conducted under the President’s Rule. (I don’t know how good that will be considering our puppet president).

    What is even more shocking is the total surrender of our English Print Media by endorsing this government line. The English News paper I read is Hindustan Times and HT has endorsed or supported the government line in various views and editorials. (I have great respect for Vir Sanghavi and agree to most of his views and opinions of current state of affairs but in this one issue he has completely lost it). It is heartening to know that vernacular print media like Mumbai Samachar is correct in exposing the abject failure of this spineless and incompetent government.

    For now, as punitive action, all security should be withdrawn from all the ministers and office bearers of this government. This is the only way to make them empathize with the common citizens of this country.

    Do you think this government has failed to uphold the Constitution of India and taken away our freedom to do business, freedom play and freedom to the pursuits of happiness?
