.एक रैंक एक भुगतान नीति पर शीघ्रता से कार्य करने के लिए रक्षा लेखा महानियंत्रक[ CGDA ] को ईएसडब्ल्यू,[ ESW ] रक्षा मंत्रालय के वित्त अनुभाग औऱ तीनों सैन्य सेवाओं के साथ विचार कर तत्काल आवश्यक कदम उठाने का निर्देश जारी किये गए | रक्षा मंत्री एके एंटोनी ने महत्कांक्षी ओआर ओ पी की योजना को लागू करने के लिए रक्षा लेखा महानियंत्रक को ईएसडब्ल्यू, रक्षा मंत्रालय के वित्त अनुभाग औऱ तीनों सैन्य सेवाओं के साथ विचार कर तत्काल आवश्यक कदम उठाने का निर्देश दिया है। उन्होंने परिवार पेंशनभोगियों और विकलांगता पेंशनभोगियों को भी इसमें शामिल किए जाने पर जोर दिया है। श्री एंटनी ने कहा कि इस सेवा में भूतपूर्व सैनिकों से भी उचित रूप से विचार-विमर्श किया जा सकता है।
केंद्रीय रक्षा मंत्री श्री .एंटनी ने कहा है कि सरकार ‘एक रैंक, एक भुगतान’ नीति (ओआरओपी) क्रियान्वित करने के लिए पूरी तरह प्रतिबद्ध है। इसके लिए आवश्यक धन सरकार हर हाल में मुहैया कराएगी। बुधवार को रक्षा मंत्रालय के वरिष्ठ और सैन्य सेवा के शीर्ष अधिकारियों की एक बैठक की अध्यक्षता करते हुए श्री एंटनी ने बताया कि इस नीति की क्रियान्वयन के लिए वित्त मंत्री ने 500 करोड़ रूपये की धनराशि उपलब्ध कराने का संकेत दिया है।
ओआरओपी नीति के क्रियान्वयन के तौर तरीकों पर चर्चा करने के लिए श्री एंटनी ने यह बैठक बुलाई थी। रक्षा राज्य मंत्री श्री जितेन्द्र सिंह, रक्षा सचिव श्री आर.के माथुर, भूतपूर्व सैनिक कल्याण (ईएसडब्ल्यू) सचिव श्रीमती संगीता गेरोला, सचिव रक्षा वित्त श्री अरूणव दत्त और तीनों सैन्य सेवाओं के उप प्रमुख और सैन्य मुख्यालय से एडजुटेंट जनरल भी इस बैठक में शामिल हुए। लेकिन इस बैठक में रक्षा लेखा महानियंत्रक की उपस्थिति का उल्लेख नहीं किया गया| गौरतलब है कि रक्षा पेंशन का कार्य रक्षा लेखा विभाग द्वारा किया जाता है और रक्षा लेखा महानियंत्रक इस विभाग के अध्यक्ष हैं| इस विभाग भी बरसों से स्टाफ की कमी से जूझ रहा है|
इसमें स्पष्ट किया गया कि ओआरओपी के तहत समान सेवाकाल औऱ समान रैंक वाले सशस्त्र सैन्य बल के सभी सेवानिवृत कर्मियों को एक समान पेंशन मिलेगी और इसी तरह पहले से ही पेंशनभोगी कर्मी भी स्वतः पेंशन की दर में भविष्य में किसी भी तरह के बदलाव से लाभान्वित होंगे। एक रैंक एक पेंशन नीति मौजूदा पेंशनभोगियों और पहले के पेंशनभोगियों की पेंशन दर के अंतराल को खत्म करेगी।
उल्लेखनीय है कि रक्षा सेवाओं में पेंशन सुधार के मुद्दे को सरकार वर्ष 2006, 2010 और 2013 में यानि तीन मौकों पर प्रभावित कर चुकी है। इन परिवर्तनों के परिणामस्वरूप वर्ष 2006 के पहले और इसके बाद सेवानिवृत्त कर्मियों का पेंशन अंतराल काफी हद तक खत्म हो चुका है। इस तरह अंततः सरकार ने लंबे समय से प्रतीक्षित रक्षा सेवाओं में ‘एक रैंक, एक भुगतान’ की मांग पर मुहर लगा दी है।

Civil Aviation Ministry To Invite Suggestions From stakeholders for an Ombudsman
Ministry of Civil Aviation (MOCA) has decided to consult stakeholders regarding setting up of an Ombudsman for Civil Aviation Sector in India as an alternative dispute settlement machinery.
The stakeholders are requested to give their comments on the subject by 15th April, 2014.
The Working Group constituted by MoCA earlier in this regard has in their report recommended setting up of an Aviation Ombudsman.The Indian civil aviation sector is one of the fastest growing civil aviation sectors in the world. In sectors where market forces play a lead role in providing services, such as the aviation sector in India, it becomes necessary to provide a window for grievance redressal of passengers and also an effective mechanism for dispute resolution. Considering the potential for future growth, and going by the experience of the service sectors and looking at international best practices, it appears logical to explore the possibility of creating an alternative dispute settlement mechanism for the sector in India. Sectors like banking, insurance, and electricity have already established an ombudsman for dispute settlement in service provision.
The U S Govt.Plans To Spend $140 million On Two Public Private Advanced Manufacturing Partnership one in
Chicago and one in the
 Detroit area — and a competition for the first of four additional institutes that will boost advanced manufacturing in the United States.
American manufacturers have created 622,000 jobs since early 2010, and President Obama is committed to building on that progress.
Obama Said “If we want to attract more good manufacturing jobs to America,” he said, “we’ve got to make sure we’re on the cutting edge of new manufacturing techniques and technologies.”
The President announced that the Department of Transportation is making available $600 million in Transportation Investment Generating Economic Recovery (TIGER) grants, a tremendously successful program investing in the nation’s infrastructure.
Obama Ensured that Those grants won’t just help repair crumbling roads and bridges — they’ll create more jobs
Lightweight and Modern Metals Manufacturing Innovation Institute Is Headquartered in the Detroit area, the LM3I Institute pairs the world’s leading aluminum, titanium, and high strength steel manufacturers with universities and laboratories pioneering new technology development and research. The institute will focus on expanding the market for and create new consumers of products and systems that utilize new, lightweight, high‑performing metals and alloys by removing technological barriers to their manufacture.
Autoworkers in Detroit are already using advanced, lightweight metals to build new cars that use less gas — just one example of what these materials can do, as President Obama explained.They can help us build lighter armored vehicles for our troops; planes and helicopters that can carry bigger payloads; wind turbines that generate more power at less cost; prosthetic limbs that help people walk again who never thought they could. We believe there’s going to be incredible demand for these metals, both from the military and the private sector, and we want them to be made right here in America. We want our workers to have those jobs.
Digital Manufacturing and Design Innovation Institute
President Obama also announced a new competition for an Advanced Composites Manufacturing Innovation Institute to improve our ability to manufacture materials that increase the energy efficiency of our cars, planes, windmills, and other products. This new competition is the first of the four the President will launch this year, building on his pledge in this year’s State of the Union and hitting the halfway point on his initial goal of creating 15 Manufacturing Innovation Institutes.
In May 2013, the Administration launched competitions for the three institutes with a Federal commitment of $200 million across five agencies – the Departments of Defense, Energy, Commerce, NASA, and the National Science Foundation, building off the success of a pilot institute headquartered in Youngstown, Ohio. In January 2014, the first of these three institutes was announced, the new Department of Energy-led Next Generation Power Electronics Manufacturing Innovation Institute in Raleigh, N.C.
