Role of public in policing stressed

India's insulation from recession explained

BELLARY: Modern policing and the role of banks and finance management in economic growth were the two lectures organised for postgraduate students of Business Management and Commerce as part of The Hindu Business Line Club lecture series organised in association with Syndicate Bank here on Friday.

Superintendent of Police Seemant Kumar Singh, who gave a PowerPoint presentation on modern policing to students at Bellary Engineering College, felt that cooperation from the public by way of following rules and maintaining law and order would not only help the police maintain peace and tranquillity, but would also go a long way in the economic growth and development of the nation.

Mr. Singh dwelt at length about the new initiatives undertaken for the modernisation of the department, especially with regard to the prevention and detection of crime and cyber crime, and tackling naxalites, human trafficking and terrorism.

Mr. Singh expressed grave concern over the rise in road accidents, mostly fatal ones, and said that it was mainly due to the fact that people were not following road rules. Stating that life was safe when driving was safe, Mr. Singh underlined the need to take to car pooling, which would ultimately reduce increasing traffic.

Yeshwant Bhupal, Principal of the college, and Vastrad, Director of the Management Department were present.

Second lecture

Srinivas Mandan, Assistant General Manager of Syndicate Bank, while addressing Commerce students of the Postgraduate Centre of Gulbarga University here, explained the origin of the banking sector and how it came to be one of the main pillars of the economy, as well as an engine for growth.

Referring to the global meltdown that severely crippled the economies of various countries including the U.S., he said the impact was not that severe on India mainly because of the proper regulatory measures that governed lending. He called upon students to make use of opportunities and facilities provided to them and contribute to the growth of the country.

Special Officer of the Postgraduate Centre S. Jayanna and Deputy Regional Manager (Circulation) of The Hindu Babu Vijay were present.
