No vax, no benefits, Samant tells teachers; Bhujbal warns Nashik
The Times of India Mumbai|November 13, 2021
Aurangabad/Nashik: In a bid to push inoculation, the authorities are widening the vaccine mandate and talking tough. On Friday, two ministers pitched in: higher and technical education minister Uday Samant said ‘benefits’ may be stopped for unvaccinated teachers and nonteaching staff while Nashik guardian minister Chhagan Bhujbal warned of no ration or LPG soon in the district for those who have not taken even one shot.

Speaking at Aurangabad, Samant said: “Vaccination has been made mandatory for all teachers, professors, principals or else all of their benefits will be stopped.” He reasoned that after “asking all the students to get vaccinated if they question about the teachers not being vaccinated, we will not have any answer”.

Asked if salaries too would be affected, Samant said vice-chancellors have been asked to take a call. The VCs have been asked to serve notice and give the staff 15 days to respond. “If they do not, the VC will take a call. We may have to take that decision too,” he said. “Citing that they are imparting online education, some teacher associations are unwilling to get vaccinated. All professors, academic staff, non-teaching staff, principals have to take both the doses,” said Samant.

BEYOND THE COOK SPACE

With the kitchen devoted solely to cooking having gone the way of the butter churn, it's no wonder that today's kitchen remodels are multifunctional, too. More and more they include adjacent spaces-mudrooms, laundry areas, storage-packed seating nooks-that workjust as hard. "With people spending more time than everat home, they're rethinking how their homes function and seeing new possibilities," says Airy Kitchens designer Sean Lewis. The resulting "kitchen-plus" renovations yield spaces that boost efficiency, sure, but are also more enjoyable to live with. Witness the projects on the following pages.
