Remittances to NDF

The Government of India have called for a report from the Indian High Commissioner in Ceylon on the reported refusal of the Ceylon Government to permit remittances to the National Defence Fund in India, Mr. Nehru told the Congress Parliamentary Party’s Standing Committee on External Affairs. Mr. Nehru said the Government had no information on this other than newspaper reports and the report of the Indian High Commissioner in Ceylon was awaited. Some members asked whether Indian support for the Malaysia move would not offend other South-East Asian countries like Indonesia. Mr. Nehru said he welcomed the Malaysia proposal mainly because it would mean two or three countries coming out of colonial rule.

Manning level-crossings

The question of manning unmanned level-crossings is still under consideration by the State Governments. Stating this in the Lok Sabha, the Union Railway Minister said that so far Madhya Pradesh and Maharashtra Governments had accepted the principle of sharing the costs between the Railways and the road authority, and the matter was being pursued with the other State Governments at a high level. To begin with, about 1,200 level-crossings have been proposed to be manned. In the light of periodic surveys of the volume of traffic, more level-crossings may be added to the list. The Minister said it would not be possible at this stage to indicate the total outlay on this for the remaining period of the Plan.

Siruvani waters

Mr. E.P. Poulose, Minister in charge of Irrigation, told a questioner in the Kerala Legislative Assembly that the Madras Government had asked for the supply of water from the Siruvani river to augment the water supply scheme in Coimbatore town. At present three million gallons were being given daily from the river for the Coimbatore town water supply scheme. The water requirements of the town were of the order of 12.5 million gallons daily, and accordingly the Madras Government had asked for the supply of more water from the Siruvani river in the Attappadi valley.
