By Tricitynews
Chandigarh 30th May:- Freyr Energy, a Hyderabad based solar EPC company bagged the award for ‘Smart Village’ at the 4th Smart Cities India 2018 Expo by ITPO – Ministry of Commerce & Industry, Government of India. The event was jointly organized by India Trade Promotion Organisation (ITPO) and the NASSCOM Centre of Excellence – IoT.
The Smart Village Award recognizes village projects that integrate up-gradation and upliftment of various socio-economic, infrastructure and recreational facilities to make life productive, smooth and accessible for the villagers. Freyr was recognized for exemplary work done in electrification through 50 solar microgrids for tribal habitations in Andhra Pradesh. These microgrids are now powering more than 1500 homes and providing electricity to nearly 8000 tribals earlier living in darkness.
On receiving the award, Saurabh Marda, Co-Founder, Freyr Energy said that Freyr Energy has been addressing the electricity problem through one of the cleanest sources of power known solar power. Our work empowers entire communities and while doing so, ensures no negative impact on the environment, no baggage for future generations. We are proud and very humbled with what we have been able to achieve with the support of all stakeholders involved. The Smart Village Award will inspire us to continuously strive to create a bigger difference.
Microgrids power the entire village with sufficient battery backup for 3 days. It includes not only a solar power generating system but an entire electrical infrastructure of poles, low tension wires, energy meters, load limiters, service cables, lights, switch boards, etc. Most sites require on-foot transportation ranging from 5 km to 15 km in hilly terrain. Other challenges include dealing with naxalites, transporting material across rivers and streams in these areas.

पदोन्नति के मामले में पीडब्ल्यूडी में हो रहा एससी वर्ग से भेद‍भाव: फकीर चंद जस्सल

By Tricitynews
Chandigarh 30th May:- अनुसूचित जाति और पिछड़ी श्रेणियां फेडरेशन पंजाब के सूबा प्रधान अमरीक सिंह बंगड़ और पीएसईबीएससी पावर इंजीनियरिंग और आफिसर्स एसोसिएशन पंजाब के सूबा प्रधान इंजीनियर फकीर चंद जस्सल ने पंजाब की मौजूदा कांग्रेस सरकार पर एससी वर्ग की विरोधी होने का आरोप लगाया।
फकीर चंद जस्सल ने पंजाब की मौजूदा कांग्रेस सरकार पर एससी वर्ग की विरोधी होने के आरोप लगाए हैं। इन नेताओं ने प्रेस क्लब में पत्रकारों से बातचीत करते हुए कहा कि कैप्टन सरकार इस वर्ग के साथ धोखा कर रही है। जब सामान्य वर्ग को पदोन्नति देनी हो तो हाईकोर्ट के आदेशों को अनदेखा किया जाता है जबकि एससी वर्ग को पदोन्नति देते समय हाईकोर्ट के फैसलों का हवाला देकर पदोन्नति रोक ली जाती हैं। उदाहरण के तौर पर पीडब्ल्यूडी में र‌न‌िंग रोस्टर का गलत इस्तेमाल करके एससी अधिकारी को जून 2016 से पदोन्नति नहीं दी जा रही। सामान्य वर्ग से संबंधित इंजीनियर अरुण कुमार को अनुसूचित जाति के हक के विरुद्ध इसी माह मुख्य इंजीनियर बना दिया गया है। इस विभाग में 8 मुख्य इंजीनियर के पदों में 2 एससी वर्ग के पहले मुख्य इंजीनियर थे लेकिन अब एक भी मुख्य इंजीनियर नहीं। इन नेताओं ने कहा क‌ि पीडब्ल्यूडी में निगरान इंजीनियरों, कार्यकारी इंजीनियरों, उपमंडल इंजीनियरों के पदों पर भी एससी वर्ग को पदोन्नति नहीं दी गई, जिस कारण वह बिना तरक्की ही सेवामुक्त हो गए या हो रहे हैं।
पीएसपीसीएल और पीएसटीसीएल में कोई भी डायरेक्टर एससी वर्ग का नहीं है जबकि डायरेक्टर जेनरेशन का पद खाली है। इस समाज की बिजली के 200 यूनिट की रियायत भी पंजाब सरकार ने पत्र जारी करके बंद कर दी है। 20 फरवरी के पंजाब एवं हरियाणा हाईकोर्ट के फैसले को लेकर सरकार द्वारा कोई नोटिफिकेशन जारी नहीं किया गया। मुख्यमंत्री कैप्टन अमरिंदर सिंह कह रहे हैं कि पदोन्नतियों में आरक्षण लागू रहेगा।  इन नेताओं ने पंजाब सरकार से मांग की कि दो मुख्य इंजीनियर पीडब्ल्यूडी में तुरंत नियुक्त किए जाएं और इंजीनियर अरुण कुमार को तुरंत रिवर्ट किया जाए। पीएसपीसीएल में एससी वर्ग के डायरेक्टर जेनरेशन लगाए जाएं और कनेक्शन बंद करने वाला सर्कुलर वापस लिया जाए। माननीय सुप्रीम कोर्ट द्वारा एसएलसी 30621 आफ 2011 के फैसले दिनांक 15 मई 2018 के अनुसार आरक्षण जारी रखा जाए। इन नेताओं ने सरकार के चेतावनी दी कि अगर एससी वर्ग से भेदभाव नहीं रुका तो वे सड़कों पर आने पर मजबूर होंगे।

Samsung Revolutionizes Movie Theatre Experience with World’s First Onyx Cinema LED Screen

By Tricitynews
Chandigarh 30th May:- Committed to offer the consumers with innovative and best-in class technologies, Samsung India, country’s most trusted consumer electronics brand, today reconceptualises the cinema experience by bringing in World’s first ONYX Cinema LED Screen in India.
Commenting on the launch Puneet Sethi, Vice President, Consumer Electronics Enterprise Business, Samsung India said that witnessing the growing demand for advanced theatre technology from movie experts and consumer alike, Samsung planned to make a radical shift from the theatre projection systems to the LED screen in India. He added further that we are introducing a game-changing technology which would showcase the work of our directors as intended and at optimal quality. In addition, it will also offer our movie-goers a new level of viewing environment, immersive in every aspect.
Inspired by the gemstone of the same name, the Onyx screen has the ability to deliver un-parallel picture quality with its true black colour bringing the content to life with higher vibrancy and accuracy. It comes with comprehensive solutions Onyx View, Onyx 3D and Onyx Sound.
Combined by an infinite contrast and specialized low-tone greyscale settings, Onyx VIEW delivers brighter and more detail-rich content. The screen delivers HDR (High Dynamic Range) to the cinema, showcasing on-screen contents at peak brightness level, nearly 10 times greater than that offered by standard cinema projectors (146fL versus 14fL) with improved uniformity and free of optical distortion and interference. It is industry’s first DCI-certified cinema screen available in various sizes. The technology delivers better visual quality, technical performance and reliability beyond that of traditional projector-based operations.
The screen maintains its advanced presentation capabilities in ambient lighting conditions regardless of the featured on-screen content and accommodate users who wish to utilize their theatres for corporate events, concert, sports event viewing & gaming competitions.
The 3D Onyx Cinema LED screen crafts 3D movie content more realistically, through enhanced brightness and consistent colour amplification. Glass-wearing viewers can now have the benefit of subtitle text, images and even minor visual details with unprecedented clarity and without the dark, blurry shadowing.
The screen also offers state-of-the-art Onyx surround sound from JBL by Harman International and Samsung’s Audio Lab, bringing scenes to life through clear and consistent audio. This integration eliminates rearward bias by expanding the audio “sweet spot” within Onyx theatres, and ensures that all attendees can enjoy the same presentation throughout, regardless of the seat location.
Samsung has collaborated with cinema content developers and cinema technology solution services provider to ensure that the display can optimize upcoming films as the theatres upgrade their screen to the Onyx screen.
