response to emergencies like accident is equally sad.
Victims lie unattended since passersby are wary of getting
caught in a labyrinthine of police and legal systems. The
resulting delay in treatment converts injuries into deaths. Of
late, unique had free service to provide assistance in
emergency cases is operational. Emergency Management
and Research institute (EMRI) is a professionally managed
operation initiated by the vision and grant from Ramalinga
Raju. The service, which is a successful example of public
private partnership likely to become operational in a few
states in the near future. Given the sad failure of
conventional government organizations in handling

alternative without the government seeking in any way to

funding, private organizations will provide the drive,
professionalism, competent management and output linked
efficiency of a good corporate organization. Combining the
sensitivity and purpose of an NGO with private
entrepreneurial drive to handle disasters together is thus a
worthwhile challenge for both corporate and the
government.

and answer the questions given below it. Certain words have
been printed in bold to help you locate them while
answering some of the questions.
Giving loans to impoverished women to make ceramics or to
farmers to buy milk cows were not seen as a great business
Microfinance was an industry championed by antipoverty
activists. Today it is on the verge of a revolution, with billions
of dollars from big banks, private-equity shops and pension
funds pouring in, driving growth of 30% to 40% this year
alone. In 1998, a non-profit microfinance organization in
Peru, converted into bank (called Mibanco).This
demonstrated that the poor are good risks who repay loans
on time and getting them together, not only chips away at
poverty but also turns a profit. The success of Mibanco has
piqued the interest of commercial banks, which had
previously shunned the countrys poor. Now big banks are
going after Mibancos clients with low-rate loans and
realizing it takes special know-how to work with the
unbanked- are hiring away Mibancos staff.
But with the emergence of players who are only out for profit,
microfinance schemes could end up milking the poor. This
