In its reply,Iraqi forces cleared areas around Fallujah on Tuesday,after launching an assault to retake the city tightening their siege on Islamic State (IS) group fighters but also raising fears for civilians trapped inside With the jihadists surrounded and outnumbered the recapture of their iconic bastion looked ultimately inevitable especially after the IS suffered a string of losses in recent months But illustrating that even a diminished IS is still dangerous the group has struck back with a wave of bomb attacks including a series of blasts that left more than 160 dead in Syrian regime coastal strongholds on Monday Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi declared the start of the operation to retake Fallujah on Monday and less than a day into the battle Iraqi forces had secured the nearby town of Garma That cut off IS fighters in Fallujah from one of their last support areas and paved the way for more advances towards the city which lies only 50 kilometres west of Baghdad Representational image AFP "Federal forces advanced towards the east of Fallujah early Mondayfrom three directions" police Lieutenant General Raed Shakir Jawdat told AFP The Hashed al-Shaabi umbrella paramilitary organisation dominated by Tehran-backed Shiite militias that are heavily involved in the operation said ground was also gained south of Fallujah With forces converging on the city concerns mounted that the tens of thousands of civilians believed to still be inside had nowhere to go The Norwegian Refugee Council estimated the number at 50000 and urged efforts to get them out "Families who have been suffering food and medical shortages over the last months now risk being caught in the crossfire and it is absolutely vital that they are granted safe routes out of there so that we can assist them" NRC country director Nasr Muflahi said in a statement He told AFP that only 80 families appeared to have been able to flee the city in the hours before the fighting began and none since "We were expecting more to come out overnight this hasn’t happened" Muflahi said adding that plans by local authorities to open humanitarian corridors had not yet materialised Officials from Anbar the vast western province in which Fallujah is located reported that small numbers of civilians had managed to sneak out A Fallujah resident reached by telephone told AFP there was heavy shelling on the northern edge of the city today "Daesh (IS) is still imposing a curfew preventing people from coming out on the street Some of them are allowed to stand at their gates" said the man who gave his name as Abu Mohammed al-Dulaimi New Delhi: Making clear her willingness for an alliance of non-BJP parties Trinamool Congress PresidentMamata Banerjee on Monday said her party will join such a front for the "greater interest" of the country The West Bengal Chief Minister said "Whoever will work for the peace of this country I will be with them" Mamata Banerjee AFP She however hinted that the onus is on the Congress the biggest non-BJP party to make the move for an alliance of ‘secular’ parties "Let them decide. Let them invite" Banerjee told a news channel when asked if she would join such an alliance formed by the Congress "But I can tell you that from myself there will be no problem For the greater interest of the country for the peaceful situation of the country for the stability of the country. I will be with them" she said Banerjee had earlier attended a conference organised by the Congress to mark the 125th birth anniversary of Jawaharlal Nehru which saw coming together of a number of non-NDA parties including the Left BJP has emerged as a potent political force in West Bengal and Left parties today accused her of practicing "minority fundamentalism" which opened gate of the state to the saffron party In a veiled attack on BJP Banerjee said somebody is trying to create communal tension in her state but her government will tackle it PTI There is a famous couplet by Iqbal that if loosely translated goes like this: There must be something about us that ensures we are never destroyed or decimated even when the world has been our enemy for ages Now apply that to the current war on illegal cash by the Narendra Modi government: It seems there is really something about Indian cash that ensures its survival Note the figures On 8 November when the prime minister announced notes of higher denomination would be outlawed with immediate effect currency notes worth nearly Rs 145 lakh crore became illegal unless deposited in banks or used for select servicesPrime Minister Narendra Modi PTI When the government outlawed the notes it was said that the so-called demonetisation would help achieve three objectives: a) unearth black money stashed as cash b) curtail funding of terror networks and c) destroy counterfeit currency It was also assumed a large part of the stashed cash would not be deposited and would be destroyed Swept away by the euphoria there were boisterous claims that money was being thrown into the Ganges or dumped in roadside bins But on current evidence it seems most of the money may actually end up getting legally tendered in banks entering the system as white money Whither kala dhan According to the RBI since the 8 November announcement currency notes worth Rs 811 lakh crore have been deposited in banks and Rs 33498 crore (3 percent) have been exchanged So currency notes worth 60 percent of the total outlawed currency has already entered the system But this does not mean 40 percent cash is still with people Some portion of it was already with banks — in the form of cash held in ATM machines and in bank chests There is no readily available figure for money held in ATMs and banks on the night of 8 November But we can get a rough idea by looking at the average amount dispensed through the 2 lakh ATMs According to the RBI data there were 103651 on-site and 99150 off-site ATMs in India in August 2016 Collectively they dispensed Rs 2196575 crore in the month of August to customers (So far the RBI has been able to pump back just around 2 lakh crore back into circulation This incidentally is less than the amount withdrawn by Indians just through ATMs) So the average cash dispensed daily through ATMs was around Rs 7322 crore And that could roughly be the amount held in them on any given day ATM & Card Statistics for August 2016 by Firstpost on Scribd Similarly bank branches all across India may have been sitting on cash to be dispensed through counters the next morning Most of it would have been in notes of higher denomination Also as pointed out here a fourth of the cash in circulation may be with government agencies and thus accounted for and clean So the amount still left in the hands of Indians could be much less than 40 percent of ‘demonetisation’ And with 32 days still left and smart money still waiting for the queues to end the final deposit figures may stun the government What if most of the currency in circulation returns to the accounts What if as was presumed earlier not much of it remains unaccounted or gets thrown away in the Ganges One of course it would imply that people managed to find the means to bring most of their cash back into circulation derailing government’s dream of a windfall through a RBI write-off equivalent to the amount that doesn’t return And ta-ta to rumoured plans of depositing Rs 15000 cash in Jan Dhan accounts And two it would mean Indians have found innovative means in this war against kaala dhan As Iqbal said kuch baat hai ki hasti mit ti nahin hamari It seems the government is now wary of a situation where the ‘surgical strike’ on black money could just deliver loose change (And there is no guarantee that the money that doesn’t return would be of hoarders — the poor the old those without bank accounts those unaware of the government decision would also ed up losing their legitimately held cash) So it has now introduced a revised form of voluntary disclosure scheme where the penalty is just five percent more (and an added lock-in period) than the 45 per cent in the scheme that ended in September And the narrative has shifted to cash-less India a far-fetched idea But recovering tax from deposits would be a tricky task One tax disputes go on for years — seven years is the legitimate period for a file to remain open Two there are just around 6000 sanctioned positions of IT officers in India around 1000 of them are vacant How many deposits and accounts will they be able to verify and bring under the tax ambit So the gains may be few And even if they are something to sing and dance about making evaders cough up tax could take years The Modi government may have unfortunately rushed into a long war with illegal cash And there is no guarantee that it would be able to demolish and destroy illegal cash Iqbal may be smiling I won’t be shy, MS took the responsibility.
