first_imgNEW DELHI: The government is in the process of preparing a list of Jammu and Kashmir politicians to be released as they are under “preventive detention” in the erstwhile state since the abrogation of Article 370, said sources. The move will be implemented in a phased manner and around 200 politicians, as well as activists, are likely to be released in the first phase in September, said a source.

The Ministry of Home Affairs has engaged its officials under close coordination with Home Secretary Ajay Kumar Bhalla and Additional Secretary (J&k Division) Gyanesh Kumar. The process started after a Central team comprising intelligence officials, including Intelligence Bureau Chief Arvind Kumar, returned from the state last week after meeting former chief ministers Omar Abdullah and Mehbooba Mufti in the state.

Sources said the team comprising senior Intelligence Bureau (IB) and Research and Analysis Wing (RAW) officials have sent a report to the Home Ministry after their meeting with Jammu and Kashmir leaders in the Valley. Advertise With Us The Central team had camped in Srinagar for two days and returned on August 23. As the special team largely focused on discussion over easing the leaders back into the Valley, the Ministry is planning how many leaders should be released in the first phase and whom to be released first, said the source. While Omar Abdullah is in Hari Niwas Palace, Mehbooba Mufti has been put up in Chashme Shahi. It is learnt that the leaders after their release from preventive detention might not be allowed to organize any public rally. The leaders are learnt to be allowed only to meet their relatives, political leaders and people in their areas, said the source. Since the abrogation of Article 370, thousands of people, including Jammu and Kashmir politicians and activists, were kept under preventive detention to maintain law and order and to avoid breach of peace in the region. When the decision was announced, the regional leaders had said that Jammu and Kashmir will face adverse consequences as a result of the abrogation. However, the state, according to the Home Ministry, has largely remained peaceful since the announcement. While the Centre has not allowed mainstream leaders to visit Kashmir, citing law and order situation and prohibitory orders, the decision to finally ease-out regional leaders has been taken keeping in view important international developments. Over a thousand people, including political leaders, separatists, activists and stone pelters, have been detained in Kashmir over fears of outbreaks of unrest after the BJP government removed the special status to the state. They were arrested and held under the Public Safety Act (PSA), a controversial law that allows authorities to imprison someone for up to two years without charge or trial.last_img

Be at the forefront of the value generation

first_imgBe at the forefront of the value generationOn 30 Oct 2001 in Personnel Today Comments are closed. Knowledgemanagement and value creation are always hot topics for debate among senior HRdirectors. At a recent human resources forum at Henley Management College thesesubjects were raised again. After much discussion the consensus was thatcompanies increasingly create profit and value in non-traditional ways, outsidenormal organisation structures. It occurs across complex relationship-based andemotional networks. Boardsare slowly waking up to the fact that knowledge assets can be valued on thebalance sheet like any other asset and HR can take a lead with this before ourfriends in finance and audit do it for us.Knowledge– simply a business’ store of information about its people, customers,marketplace and competitors – is a fundamental asset, but it is frightening howmuch companies do not know. They often cannot access the knowledge available tothem. They reinvent plans and activities and do not learn from life out in themarketplace. Organisations like this are flying in the dark. Data, experienceand knowledge resides in the company, but if it isn’t shared then it may aswell not exist.Thisis where knowledge managers or learning directors come in. Really good HRpeople can also help – they know where seams of activity are and they can tap intoand read the pulse of these new networks. It is here that value gets created;that loyalty, commitment and retention gets built or – if not managedeffectively and pro-actively – gets destroyed. Recentresearch suggests that far from organisations being held together from the top,they are actually held together across the middle – first-line and middle-levelpeople managers are critical to the formation and development of social capitaland they are the leaders of communities up, across and throughout the business.Giventhis, we have to be very careful when the call comes to downsize. Typically,done by taking out middle managers in departments or by extracting wholedepartments, this would damage the cross-functional communities within the newstructure.  Thisis an example of how traditional ways of working mitigate against sharingknowledge. A new HR acronym was created at the forum – MOTOC (Managing OutsideThe Organisation Chart) and this has major implications for the effectivenessof HR. Managers increasingly have to manage in the space outside of normalreporting relationships and we need to help them do this. Iam not a huge fan of outsourcing HR, but if it frees up personnel professionalsto get to grips with their new role then I support it, as I believe this iswhere HR can make a huge difference in this value generation.
