IAS as CVO in CBDT - a welcome step
The officers who have been harassed by the present vigilance
set up will take a sigh of relief. At last some objectivity
in dealing with vigilance matter may percolate into the
The Govt may appoint IRS from CBDT as CVO of other services

Rate of commission in a leading Public construction Agency-
It is being told that any PSU can assign work to this famous
agency. The agency in turn assigns the work to a private
contractor. The contractor has to pass 6 to 10% commission
to the agency. The agency in turn passes 3 to 5% commission
to the PSU or the ministry which assigns the work to it.
The PM should look into this practice as it amounts to substandard
work and massive corruption running into hundreds of crores.
Stagnation - a serious problem
Stagnation is a serious problem that affects MORALE - it
affects self esteem, it affects performance, it affects
health even - and yet, bosses after bosses will come and
go, and yet the poor Railway PRO will continue to serve
and crib. Those who join with him will rise to become his
boss in some years - and yet, he is supposed to be happy.
Indian Railway PROs quest for dignity in the form of promotion
has met with no success in the past, and it is amazing that
such a glaring injustice is treated as if it does not exist.
After being in the same scale for decades, some PROs in
IR have given VRS and quit honourably. Some others continue
to stay on in the hope that there will be some light at
the end of the tunnel. But the damage, is already done.
The Image of Indian Railways, is in the hands of these stagnated
PROs - and unless and until they themselves are uplifted,
can they uplift the image of the organisation? this is a
simple question that has been overlooked for many years.
The NaMo govt has found solutions to so many problems -
will it also find a solution to end the pathetic plight
of Indian Railway PROs so that they find dignity in their
Plight of CSSS Officers
I agree with the article written by Shri V. P. Sharma Ji
on the plight of Stenographers Grade 'D' of CSSS, who were
appointed well before 1990. Even Stenographers of 1985 batch
are still working as Personal Assistants after rendering
29 years of their valuable service to the Govt. of India.
Is is not humiliation to these officials? I would like to
make a sincere appeal to Hon'ble Minister of DOP&T to
please look into this aspect and redress their problem once
and for all.
The appellant asked for the service details of a teacher
regarding her date of joining the service, her present residential
address and her salary certificates, etc. During hearing
before the CIC, the teacher submitted that the information
seeker is her husband who is harassing her. She raised objection
to the disclosure of information to the appellant, saying
that it is her personal information. The CIC held that information
about salary and official address of public servant is public
in nature and shall be disclosed to any person including
spouse. Salary details including deductions contained in
Salary slip or certificate and residential address of the
public servants is personal information, and also third
party information. Only after proof of larger public interest
such information also can be given. Filing of 50 RTI applications
reflects the personal animosity but not public interest.
Cases where spouses are seeking information about each other
are now increasingly coming to notice. They may be involved
in marital disputes and cases both civil and criminal, may
be filed mutually against each other. They can also seek
information to help them to prove or disprove the charges.
However, it must be born in mind that information unconnected
with the discharge of public duties should not be provided
unless the disclosure establishes a larger public interest.
