[वाशिंगटन]अमेरिका ने ग्रीन कार्ड पर लगी सीमा हटायी:भारतीय पेशेवरों को राहत
अमेरिकी सांसदों ने ग्रीन कार्ड जारी करने पर मौजूदा सात प्रतिशत की सीमा को हटाने के उद्देश्य से बुधवार को एक विधेयक पारित किया। इस विधेयक से भारत के हजारों उच्च कुशल आईटी पेशेवरों को लाभ मिलेगा।
ग्रीन कार्ड किसी व्यक्ति को अमेरिका में स्थायी रूप से रहने और काम करने की अनुमति देता है।
फेयरनेस ऑफ हाई स्किल्ड इमिग्रेंट्स एक्ट, 2019 या एचआर 1044 नाम का यह विधेयक 435 सदस्यीय सदन में 65 के मुकाबले 365 मतों से पारित हो गया।
नए विधेयक में इस सीमा को सात प्रतिशत से बढ़ाकर 15 प्रतिशत कर दिया गया है।
इसी तरह इसमें हर देश को रोजगार आधारित प्रवासी वीजा केवल सात प्रतिशत दिए जाने की सीमा को भी खत्म कर दिया गया है।

Hitting back, Patel said for the last 40-50 years, the Congress did nothing for the memorial. He said he would give a detailed response once the bill comes up for consideration and passage.
The amendment bill also paves way for the leader of the single largest opposition party in the Lok Sabha to be a member of the trust. As of now, only Leader of the Opposition in the Lok Sabha is a member of the trust.

[New Delhi] Capt Meets Gadkari And Demand Clearance Of Ring Roads In Punjab
Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh has sought early clearance of ring roads around the state’s major cities, while urging the Union Minister for Road Transport & Highways and Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises, Nitin Gadkari, to immediately release the third installment of GoI grant of Rs.3.72 crore for Mohali Hitech Metal Cluster and implementation of SFURTI in Wood Inlay Cluster, Hoshiarpur.
The Chief Minister called upon Gadkari on Thursday afternoon to press for his intervention to clear the state’s pending projects/approvals under his department. He invited the Union Minister to visit Punjab to help revive the MSMEs in the state.
Gadkari assured Captain Amarinder that all Punjab related issues pending with his ministries would be looked into and addressed at the earliest. He also assured of full support and cooperation to the state government in pursuance of their road infrastructure development projects, besides various initiatives in the field of MSMEs.
The Chief Minister also sought the Union Ministry’s immediate approval of funds to the tune of Rs. 636.45 lakh for appointment of technical consultant for the ring roads project to work out the alignments needed for the roads.
Captain Amarinder also urged Gadkari to facilitate expeditious clearance of the Delhi-Amritsar-Katra Expressway project, for which Government of India has already approved a plan for constructing 800 Km of Expressways under Bharatmala Scheme Phase-I. The state government had requested the Ministry time and again for early start of this project but so far even the alignment has not been frozen upon, he lamented.
The Chief Minister also impressed upon the Union Minister the need for immediate declaration of National Highway and approval to four laning of Patiala-Sirhind-Morinda road, which the Union Ministry was pressing for development as a Greenfield project while the state wanted it to be a brownfield project.
Captain Amarinder requested the Minister to declare Banga-Garhshankar-Anandpur Sahib-Naina Devi Road as a National Highways project in the current fiscal. He pointed out that this demand has also been raised by the Jathedar of Takhat Sri Keshgarh Sahib as the road in question was in extremely bad shape. It may be recalled that Gadkari had earlier laid the foundation stone for the upgradation of Banga-Garhshankar-Anandpur Sahib-Naina Devi Road.
The Chief Minister also touched upon several other related issues, setting up of technology centres & sub centres under Hub & Spoke Scheme, and Zero Effect Zero Defect Scheme.
He was accompanied by Punjab PWD Minister, Vijay Inder Singla, MPs, Preneet Kaur, Manish Tiwari and Gurjit Singh Aujla, his Media Advisor Raveen Principal Secretary Tejveer Singh and Secretary PWD Hussan Lal.
