Iraqi villagers celebrate freedom from Islamic State, but still haunted by terror
By Michael Georgy | FADILIYA, Iraq FADILIYA, Iraq When Kurdish fighters cleared Islamic State from the northern Iraqi village of Fadiliya, some residents celebrated by passing around cigarettes - an act that would have earned them a public whipping under the group's reign of terror.Peshmerga forces took the village on Thursday as they advanced towards Mosul, Islamic State's last main stronghold in Iraq which lies about four km (2.5 miles) away.As the fighters moved through the streets and greeted villagers, there was no longer any sign of the jihadists, alive or dead. Their fear easing, local people began speaking openly for the first time about their two years under Islamic State occupation."If you are caught smoking you get whipped with a water hose 50 times in public," said Othman Mahmoud, as his friend handed around a pack of cigarettes with a smile.A teenager joined the gathering, describing a code imposed with ferocity on every aspect of personal life, right down to facial h..

2 per cent DA hike: Centre’s Diwali gift to 1 crore staff, pensioners
In a Diwali bonanza for more than 50 lakh government employees and 54 lakh pensioners, the Centre on Thursday approved 2 per cent dearness allowance (DA) and relief.
The decision to provide 2 per cent DA on basic pay was taken by the Union Cabinet and will be effective from July 1, 2016.
This will result in annual burden of Rs 5,622.1 crore, though for the period of eight months (July-February in 2016-17), it would be Rs 3,748.06 crore.
The Central government had increased the DA by 6 per cent to 125 per cent in March. Following the implementation of the 7th Pay Commission, it was merged with the basic pay.
“The Union Cabinet has given its approval to release an instalment of the DA to the Central government employees and Dearness Relief (DR) to pensioners from July 1, representing an increase of 2 per cent on the revised basic pay/pension, to compensate for price rise,” a press statement said.

The civil services preliminary examination, to select IAS and IPS officers among others, will be held in June instead of August 2017.
It is after a gap of three years that Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) will be conducting the examination in June, rather than August.
The civil services preliminary examination, 2017, is scheduled to be held on June 18, as per the Commissions’ calendar for the examination. The preliminary tests for 2016, 2015 and 2014 were held during the month of August, a senior UPSC official said. “The preliminary exam will be held early in June this year.
