Did Ayushman Bharat-PMJAY scheme really help Covid patients?

TeamCitymapia | May 13, 2022

The Ayushman Bharat-PMJAY scheme was touted as an insurance scheme that will cover the cost of Covid-19 treatment in selected hospitals. However, RTI data suggests that less than 12% of hospitalised Covid-19 patients were treated for free under it. Many approached the hospitals empanelled under the scheme but were told: "If you want to use Ayushman card go to some other hospital." At least 40% of India’s population is eligible under PMJAY and the number of patients treated under the scheme was remarkably low.

Modern women are keen on driving a car as much as their male counterparts. But the automobile industry hasn’t caught up to this fact yet. None of the car manufacturers use a female dummy to crash test their vehicles. Some companies user smaller versions of male dummies to pass the government requirements. This puts women at 73% higher risk of dying or sustaining a serious injury. Many has pointed out that many cars are not primarily designed to keep women safe and are still given five star safety ratings.

The hijab ban is dividing the country, Here is why

TeamCitymapia | Apr 17, 2022

The Karnataka government and High Court have been adamant about stating that the hijab ban is about ensuring uniformity. Scroll.in columnist Sreedeep argue that it is yet another extension of India's majoritarian politics that claim the Hindu way of life is superior. This aggressive strategy of the homogenisation of religious pluralities is only dividing India. He asks to what extent can the state and society intervene when it comes to dressing in public. "And to what extent should the citizens tolerate it?"

Why India’s move to increase contract labour is bad

TeamCitymapia | Apr 12, 2022

The rate of unemployment in India reached 8.1% in February and it is a six-month high. At the peak of the second wave, it had hit 11.84% and the country is now increasing contract labour. Mahesh Vyas, chief executive officer of the Centre for Monitoring the Indian Economy, told IndiaSpend that it is a mistake. "India needs to create good quality jobs, with greater private investment." He added that in order to help families create savings for the future, large companies should be the biggest job providers.

It is no secret that the caste system is still thriving in India, and those who try to escape it are tortured. Students from marginalised communities who pursue higher education are often at the receiving end of the system. Many PhD students are dealing with delayed funds and vengeful guides. Many first-generation learners are oppressed to the point of experiencing anxiety attacks. Many realise in the first few weeks that they are not going to get mentorship but are also likely to face deliberate hindrance.
