Without naming any particular organisation, Mr. Siddaramaiah, while addressing a gathering at Surathkal before winding up his day-long tour on Thursday, said that the government was not appeasing any community. He said the State government believed in equality for all. “We believe in inclusive growth,” he said.

Mr. Siddaramaiah said that the socio-economic survey report would be released next month.

He also laid the foundation stone for three projects on the occasion. The projects are: Mangaluru City Corporation's zonal office building at Surathkal at a cost of Rs. 2.25 crore; upgrading Surathkal Junction-MRPL Road up to Surathkal railway bridge (240 metres) as a six-lane road at a cost of Rs. 2.75 crore and provide makeshift arrangement to 87 shops of Surathkal market at Kendra Maidan at a cost of Rs. 1.70 crore to facilitate the construction of a new building at the existing market place.

The chief minister also hailed the local MLA Mohiuddin Bava and said that representatives of the people should be active like him. Recalling the confusions while finalising a candidate for Mangaluru North constituency during last assembly polls, the CM said that he had trusted and supported Mr Bava.

“Today Mr Bava has won the hearts of the people of this constituency. He will continue his good works and win the next assembly polls too,” Mr Siddaramaiah said.

Earlier, the Chief Minister laid the foundation stone for a Konkani museum at Shakthi Nagar. The museum would be constructed at a cost of Rs. 30 crore.

Bengaluru, June 17: With 72 more students receiving 625 out of 625 marks after re-evaluation and re-totalling, the number of students securing full marks in the SSLC examinations has increased to 217.

Last month, when the SSLC results were announced, 145 students sprang a surprise by scoring 625 out of 625. This number has increased by 72 after the Karnataka Secondary Education Examination Board (KSEEB) released the revaluation results.

The Board has decided to initiate disciplinary action against teachers who evaluated the answer scripts.

KSEEB director Gopalakrishna H N said: “We are gathering information on the teachers who evaluated these answer scripts and the same will be forwarded to the deputy directors of respective districts for further action.”

According to the Board’s norms, such teachers will be penalised and also blacklisted from the list of eligible evaluators. “The action will depend on the reply they give to the notice they will be issued,” said another official of the Board.

Meanwhile, the Board is initiating measures to refund the revaluation fee to students. “If the difference in marks is six and above we will refund the revaluation fees. But in case the marks difference is below six, then the revised marks will be added to the marks card, but no refund will be initiated,” the KSEEB director explained.

The huge number of students notching up perfect top scores became a subject of discussion on various platforms. This is the first time since the inception of KSEEB that 217 students have scored full marks in all the subjects to emerge as toppers. 

The number of students achieving the perfect score was never more than 10 all these years. In 2020, six students scored a cent per cent. Also, the number of students securing second place has been jumped from 11 in 2020 to 309 this year with a total score of 624. A total of 472 students share the third place with 623 marks.

Hassan, June 23: An earthquake measuring 3.4 on the Richter scale shook parts of Hassan district and neighbouring regions in south Indian state of Karnataka in the wee hours of Thursday, a disaster management official said.

The earthquake was also felt in many villages near Somwarpet in Kodagu district. People ran out of their houses following the tremor.

According to Karnataka State Disaster Management Authority Commissioner, Manoj Rajan, the epicentre was Maluganahalli village under Nagaranahalli village panchayat in Holenarasipura Taluk of Hassan district.

He said as per the seismic intensity map of the said earthquake from the epicentre, the intensity observed is moderate and the tremor may be felt up to a maximum radial distance of 40-50 kms from the epicentre.

“This type of earthquake does not create any harm to the local community, although there might be slight shaking observed locally. As the epicentre falls in Seismic Zone-II, the chances of occurrence of earthquakes is very less and the possibility of damage is low.

"As the region is void of any structural discontinuities as per the tectonic map, the community need not panic as the intensity observed is moderate and not destructive,” the commissioner explained.
