first_imgThe Maharashtra government is likely to move its banking services to the newly-launched India Post Payments Banks (IPPBs). The Central government has directed the State government to move the financial activities of all its marketing organisations and agricultural and fertiliser cooperatives to the 2,500 access points proposed by the Department of Posts, the nodal agency for the IPPBs.The launch of the IPPBs is likely to double the retail banking infrastructure and help Maharashtra facilitate and finance major projects better.Information technology will also reduce the State’s dependence on district and state cooperative banks. “We have recently received directives from A.N. Nanda, Secretary, Ministry of Communication, Government of India, in this regard. They (the Centre) are soon going to set up branches, while about 2,500 access points will be in Maharashtra,” said a senior State official.Maharashtra has 15,475 banking branches, including thousands of Primary Agriculture Credit Cooperative Societies controlled by the and District Central Cooperative Banks (DCCBs) and State Cooperative Banks (SCBs), which provide banking services through Bank Mitras and alternate business channels such as mobile and internet banking. The DCCB subscriber base in the State as on March 31, 2018 was 7,19,068. Earlier, for demonetisation to achieve its desired objective, a special investigation team of the Ministry of Finance had suggested better monitoring of DCCBs, which were feared to be involved in suspicious activities during the period.Prime Minister Narendra Modi had, on August 21, 2018, dedicated services of the IPPBs to the nation. The new platform will double the retail banking infrastructure in the country and provide an unprecedented impetus to digital payments, officials said. The IPPB’s access points will also help citizens make digital payments across multiple platforms. A total of 650 branches and approximately 1.55 lakh access points have been proposed by the Department of Posts across the country. Senior officials indicated that as per the State’s plans direct benefit transfers under various welfare schemes will also be moved to the IPPBs soon.last_img read more


first_img Comments YouTube encouraged users to flag questionable videos. The company also noted in a blog post that creators are allowed to discuss, report or educate people about the Momo Challenge or character. YouTube said that images of Momo won’t be allowed on YouTube Kids, however, and that it’s putting safeguards in place to exclude it from content.Police and schools this week issued warnings to parents about the challenge after reports that it has resurfaced in the UK on YouTube, according to CBS News. The supposed Momo Challenge reportedly originated on the WhatsApp messaging platform, went viral last year and then largely disappeared. The challenge involves Momo, a gruesome puppet-like creature that instructs kids to complete a series of challenges, including harming themselves and others. However, charities like the Samaritans and the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children have said the challenge is a malicious hoax, reported The Guardian on Thursday, and that there’s no confirmed evidence it poses a threat to children. The image of Momo, in fact, is a sculpture called “Mother Bird” by Japanese artist Keisuke Aisawa. There doesn’t appear to be any link between the artist and the challenge.First published Feb. 28 at 11:11 a.m. PT.Update, 1:07 p.m.: Adds more information from YouTube.
