The Gujarat government provided appointment letters and apprenticeship contract letters to 1.49 lakh youths at employment appointment letter distribution programmes held in 33 districts and seven municipalities in the state on Monday.“Providing employment opportunities to 1.49 lakh youth is historic,” said Chief Minister Bhupendra Patel as handed over the letters to 17 youths in Ahmedabad.Attributing the development in Gujarat to the strong foundation laid by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the CM said that today Gujarat has become the growth engine of the country.“During the Covid pandemic, even major countries got tired. At that time, PM Modi gave the call of Atmanirbhar Bharat… through free vaccination, the PM got us out of Covid and made sure no one slept hungry during that time by providing free ration,” CM said.Describing the comprehensive development of the state, the CM said that Gujarat has become identical with strong development in every sector under the direction of PM Modi.“Two decades ago, the state was producing 99 MW of renewable energy that has reached 16,588 MW today and 8,750 MW power generation has reached 40,138 MW,” he said adding that 26 per cent of Narmada’s water that was taken for use has now reached 94.86 per cent.Two decades ago there were 2.74 lakh MSME industries in the state which has now increased to 8.66 lakh, he added. With the support of the state government and private institutions, 2.17 lakh students are being trained in 125 courses in the 600 ITIs in the state to create a skilled workforce, he added.Under the Mukhyamantri Apprentice Scheme, more than one lakh youth were trained in four years, he said.“More than three lakh employment have been provided to youths through rozgar melas. In the past five months, nearly 900 rozgar melas were organised. More than two lakh jobs were given through Anubandham portal that links employers and employees… and 13,000 vacancies are still available on the portal,” said principal secretary Labour, Skill Development and Employment Department Anju Sharma.

Post Covid pandemic and after a gap of two and half years, the Pune team of surgeons from Galaxy Care hospital flew to Gujarat over the weekend to carry out a record back to back uterine transplants in two women in their 20s. “Prior to the pandemic, nine uterine transplants – all in Maharashtra -were performed.Now with the Gujarat government giving permission for uterine transplant, our team decided to carry out the procedure for the women on Sunday (Sept 25),” Dr Shailesh Puntambekar, medical director at Galaxy care hospital told The Indian Express. The next state to invite the team is West Bengal where the team is already planning their next surgery.On Monday morning the entire 11 member team returned to Pune and according to Dr Puntambekar both uterine transplant procedures were completed in a span of nine hours. According to Dr Milind Telang, chief gynaecologist with Galaxy Care hospital, the two women who underwent uterine transplants are stable.“The first patient was a 28 year old woman who had a small uterus and was infertile. Her mother was 49 and as per the transplant norms were evaluated. The second woman had an absent uterus and suffered from a condition called Mayer-Rokitansky-Küster-Hauser (MRKH) syndrome and was married for three years. She was evaluated and her mother also agreed to donate her uterus. Both patients and their families were counselled,” Dr Telang said. The incidence of MRKH syndrome is one in 5000 girls that are born.“In our Indian scenario it would approximate to nearly 1.25 lakh girls who are born with this condition,” Dr Telang said. Both cases were of absolute uterine factor infertility. The entire procedure was completed in less than 12 hours. “Starting at 9 am we finished both operations by 7.45 pm,” Dr Telang said. Both donor and recipients are stable with no blood transfusion.Both women were earlier registered with the hospital in Pune for the transplant. Pune’s Galaxy Care hospital had conducted India’s first two successful uterine transplants in May 2017 with the third one in January 2018 being completed by the team in six hours.The womb transplants were performed through laparoscopic surgery that made the surgeries painless and helped in faster recovery. After nine uterine transplants the Covid pandemic brought about a temporary stop to the procedures.While the institute awaits a formal inspection and renewal of its license as a uterine transplant centre the Gujarat government in the meantime had invited Dr Puntambekar and his qualified team members to perform the transplant in Ahmedabad. The permission from the Gujarat government was like a bonus for the families of the transplant recipients as they could stay in their home state and undergo the procedure, Dr Puntambekar said.The transplants were performed at the Institute of Kidney Diseases and Research Centre at the Ahmedabad civil hospital campus.The state authorization committee, transplantation of human organ act, government of Gujarat had granted registration of uterus transplant centre to the institute and in a letter issued recently had stated that during the first year the uterus transplantation has to be done by Dr Shailesh Puntambekar and his qualified team members.Dr Vasanthi Ramesh, Director of National Organ and Tissue Transplant Organisation (NOTTO) when contacted told The Indian Express that the registry is in the process of being updated. “Uterine transplantation is not a life saving procedure. However one can live without a uterus and hence it can be a life enhancing or life giving procedure,” Dr Ramesh said.

The Indian Premier League (IPL) will return to its original, pre-COVID-19, home-and-away format from the 2023 season, BCCI President Sourav Ganguly has conveyed to the Board’s affiliated state units.The IPL has been held at only a few venues since the outbreak of COVID-19 in 2020 as the lucrative league unfolded behind close doors across three venues in UAE — Dubai, Sharjah and Abu Dhabi.In 2021 too, the tournament was held across four venues — Delhi, Ahmedabad, Mumbai and Chennai.However, with the pandemic under control, the cash-rich league will return to its old format in which each team plays one home and one away match.“The next season of men’s IPL will also go back to the home and away format with all ten teams playing their home matches at their designated venues,” read a Ganguly’s note to state units.The note gave them a “snapshot” of the ongoing domestic season.The BCCI is conducting a full-fledged domestic season for the first time since 2020 and all multi-day tournaments will also return to the traditional home and away format.Expecting Women’s IPL to to start early next yearThe BCCI is also working to host the inaugural edition of the much-anticipated Women’s IPL early next year.PTI had last month reported that the tournament is likely to take place in March after the Women’s T20 World Cup in South Africa.“The BCCI is currently working on the much-awaited Women’s IPL. We are expecting to start the first season early next year,” Ganguly wrote in the letter dated September 20.The Women’s IPL is expected to raise the standard of women’s cricket in India.Besides the the Women’s IPL, the BCCI is also launching a girls under-15 ODI tournament.“We are glad to introduce a girls U15 One Day tournament from this season. Women’s cricket has seen phenomenal growth across the world and our national team has been performing well. This new tournament will create a pathway for our young girls to play at the national and international level,” Ganguly wrote.The inaugural women’s under-15 event will be played from December 26 to January 12 across five venues — Bangalore, Ranchi, Rajkot, Indore, Raipur, Pune.
