  10. Delhi: Gurdwara Sri Bangla Sahib is all set to open a diagnostic facility for the poor and underprivileged people in the first week of December. For the MRI at Gurdwara Sri Bangla Sahib, the needy will have to pay Rs 50 while others will be required to pay Rs 800, while the dialysis will cost about Rs 600. The upcoming diagnostics center at Sri Bangla Sahib promises to provide tests at the “cheapest” rates for those who can’t afford them. It is being set up by the Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee (DSGMC) in the Gurdwara’s 50-year-old dispensary. Meanwhile, the DSGMC president Majinder Singh Sirsa said that they get a lot of people who are poor. As per the report, the committee has put together Rs 6 crore, besides donations from several individuals, with which it has bought four dialysis machines, an MRI, X-Ray, and an ultrasound machine. Normally, the MRI costs at Rs 6,000-8,000 but it will cost Rs 50 at Gurdwara Sri Bangla Sahib. Meanwhile, Pioneer Surgeon Dr. Arvinder Singh Soin said that “After a low-cost dispensary, Gurdwara Bangla Sahib is now slated to open a cheap diagnostic facility. An ultrasound will cost Rs. 150 & an MRI Scan Rs. 50!” However, the MRI at Rs 50 is just for needy people while for others it will cost Rs 800. This is not the first time that the Gurdwara has made headlines. During the nationwide lockdown, the Gurdwara had prepared meals for around 75,000 people. https://www.ptcnews.tv/indias-cheapest-diagnostic-facility-at-delhis-gurdwara-sri-bangla-sahib-en/

Toggle navigation Sun, 11 Oct, 2020|6:57 PM BREAKING NEWS i Project Management Unit to be set up for gurdwara at Kartarpur Font Size: A A A Internews/Lahore Saturday، 10 October 2020 11:59 PM The government of Pakistan has decided to set up Project Management Unit (PMU) for management and maintenance of Gurdwara Darbar Sahib Kartarpur (GDSK) constructed and outsourced by Frontier Works Organization (FWO), official sources revealed yesterday. The ETPB functions under Evacuee Trust Properties (Management and Disposal) Act No. XIII of 1975 and the schemes made thereunder. The present government decided to open the Corridor with Gurdwara Darbar Sahib Kartarpur with lead role to ETPB. The Government of Pakistan spent Rs16.280 billion on development of the Gurdwara. The project was formally approved under the Prime Minister’s directive given on March 19, 2019. Kartarpur Sahib Corridor was inaugurated by the prime minister on November 9, 2019, coinciding with 550 birthday anniversary of Baba Guru Nanak Dev, founder of Sikh religion. As per bilateral agreement between Pakistan and India held on October 24, 2019, 5000 Sikh pilgrims are allowed to visit GDSK through corridor, while local Pakistanis are also visiting the DKC in considerable numbers. Every yatree deposits $20 as “service charges” on arrival from Indian side which is credited into Federal Consolidated Fund. From November 2019 to March 2020, 63,000 (63,000x$20-$1,260,000) yatrees from India visited the Gurdwara. Visitors from Pakistani side pay Rs200 per head as “service charges” to Global Nobal Company (FWO). From November 2019 to March 2020, 422,000 (422,000 x Rs200 - Rs84,400,000) locals from within Pakistan visited the Gurdwara. Ministry of Religious Affairs and Interfaith Harmony argues that after remodelling the GDSK, it has become a huge complex and not easy to manage, as thousands of locals visit the complex on a daily basis. ETPB has made interim arrangements but existing staff is not sufficient to manage the affairs of Gurdwara including day to day operation of the Corridor. Therefore, regular, well trained and equipped staff is required to maintain and manage the project. The sources said, ETPB proposed that Project Management Unit should be established to run its management and to streamline the religious activities inside the Gurdwara Kartarpur Sahib and take its lead role by extending coordination with other agencies working in GDSK. The Ministry of Religious Affairs and Interfaith Harmony further noted that the Establishment Division (MS Wing) had agreed/recommended creation of 162 posts for PMU, however, Finance Division agreed to the creation of 126 posts for PMU. ETPB had proposed a Business Plan for the creation and self-financing of the PMU. The Ministry of RA and IFH sanctioned following business plan for establishment/self-financing of Project Management Unit to run the affairs of Gurdwara Kartarpur Sahib Corridor under the supervision of ETPB advice: (i) Business Plan to create PMU at Gurdwara Darbar Sahib Kartarpur along with creation of 126 posts and recurring budget and other costs to make PMU a self-financing body under the administrative control of ETPB. PMU/ETPB would be allowed to collect fees/rents and utilise the funds from local visitor’s service charges, rent of shops, parking fees and cultural activities, according to Sikh traditions. The ministry requested that an estimated amount of Rs90,300 million collected by the Global Nobel/FWO from service charges of Pakistani visitors and rent of shops may be allowed to be transferred to PMU on its creation to meet its immediate expenses. The Operation and Maintenance works for an initial period of two years, i.e. from Nov-2019 to Oct-2021 is being carried out by M/s Global Nobal Company outsourced by FWO. It will continue to be carried out under the supervision of PMU until Oct-2021, as the amount for this purpose has already been paid to FWO. The scheme for the management and disposal of Urban Evacuee Trust Properties, 1977 also empowers renting, leasing and its development. All rents, profit, income and other amounts received/realised would also be part of trust pool. This would be collected in PMU budget and may be spent on PMU as per the forward plan. https://m.gulf-times.com/story/675040/Project-Management-Unit-to-be-set-up-for-gurdwara-at-Kartarpur
  14. Total support for Sarbat da bhalla Bhai Jagraj Singh (Basics of Sikhi) said that RSS controls most if not all Sikh Organisations as per Sunny Hundal (his elder brother). So whose to blame for corruption
  15. That's true but what is Sikh Think Tank doing ! Do we have one or not ? Look at RSS they must have selected the above singers, paid for their training, used connections to get them on TV talent show or in limelight. Promoted them on social media. Don't get me wrong the singing group deserves all of it but what are Sikh organisations, charity, ngo doing !
  16. I mean the present day Sikh Youth should practice more. They should be encouraged, promoted & rewarded just like these singers. There should be a NGO to promote Kirtan & budding Kirtanis in schools & uni's. Talented candidates should be promoted on social media, Sikh TV & radio channels.
