HAL Chief's five-point agenda for Indian R&D (UPDATED)

The "Make in India" concept in the Defence Sector has potential to raise defence manufacturing in the country from present 30% to 70% in the next few years. "This could be achieved by making India hub of MRO business, by investing in Research and Technology processes and by focusing on development of skills in 70 plus trades related to the aerospace industry", said Dr R K Tyagi, Chairman, HAL, at the Foundation Day Celebrations of Council of Scientific and Industrial (CSIR) here today. Speaking on the occasion, Dr Tyagi outlined a five point agenda for galvanising the Research and Development scenario in the country. The first step towards a better R&D set up is to increase the funding to the national research laboratories such as NAL significantly as they safeguard and protect the country's IP. The second point is to create an agency which is dedicated to disruptive research ideas within India on the lines of DARPA under Department of Defence in US, Phantom works in Boeing or Skunk works in Lockheed Martin. This agency would help us achieve the success that Atomic Energy or Space Sector has witnessed. He urged that a serious attempt needs to be made to establish a National Aeronautics Commission to synthesise the learnings of the aerospace sector. Dr Tyagi's third point reflected the point made by the Prime Minister yesterday at Madison square in New York. He stressed that a lot of Indian origin scientists would be more than willing to work in niche areas to prop up the country's capability. A policy framework for engagement of such persons of Indian origin needs to be formulated to fill up the critical technology gaps. Stressing on higher degree of participation from Industry in R&D, Dr Tyagi's fourth point brought out that one each of the 37 labs of CSIR needs to be adopted by a specific industry or the company so that the lab work gets easily commercialised and is relevant to the needs of the aerospace industry. He commended the role of CSIR and the National Aerospace Laboratories (NAL) and urged them to open their laboratories to the industries such as HAL and others to exploit the hidden advantages of this scientifically well-established infrastructure. "Such a step will also bring in much needed funds and give fillip to the on-going activities of CSIR-NAL", he added.

Whispers website Forum or CGHS Grievance Forum ?

Sadly, the whispers website Forum is becoming increasingly like a CGHS Grievance Forum. People may have their grievances but giving them so much space on the Forum daily, is not going to solve their problems. They need to go to the right authorities and take up the problems with them.

Dress code of our PM

I like too much about the dress code of Narendra Modi

K S Sebas

Withdrawal of staff from PSUs and CAPFs

Apart from other most damaging part of withdrawal of staff from PSUs and CAPFs is that the regular staff of Ministries are deprived of their entitled posts by posting these free staff who are ready to do anything just to remain in Ministries. This not only compromises the security in confidential matters but is always a compromised staff. This should be stopped immediately.

Officers misusing facilities

I have worked both in the Department of Heavy Industry and Ministry of Power. In fact I was additional PS to three Ministers and use to burn my own petrol. I have obtained a substantial number of information. Officers are burning the scarce petrol of the country at the nations cost, having personal attendant of PSUs and Stationery items of PSUs like costly furniture, stereo, fridge etc., which they never return on repatriation. A number of Officials both in the Departments on one hand are using PSUs vehicle (including hired ones) for commutation from residence to office & back but at the same time are taking transportation allowance. These misuses continues the feeling of feudalism. An inquiry in this regard should be conducted by CBI and CVC.

ICFRE misses Dr Negi

Posting of PSU staff in Ministries not good

I agree with posting of PSU staff in Ministries on loan basis is not good. Kya PSUs mein staff jyada hai ki unko loan basis par dusare vibhago mein bhej diya jata hai? To phir nayi recruitments nhi honi chahiye. Apne vibhag ka kam-kaj chodh kar dusare Office mein chale jate hai. Loan basis par aye sabhi staff ko unko apne vibhago/departments mein bhej diya jaye. Iss policy ko sudharne mein Senior Officers apna apna sahyog bhi de sakte hai.

Not surrendering govt accommodation

Many Ex-officers never surrender room in their offices and government accommodation allotted to them. Strictly action should be taken against them by Estate Office. Estate office has to verify from their offices that officers/staff are serving or not bi-monthly or half yearly.

DATE WITH RTI

All information about a government servant is private

The appellant sought certified copies of the documents of all the lecturers/HODs of a Polytechnic college relating to their names, appointment orders, promotion orders, pay fixation orders, pay fixation orders after 6th Pay Commission, enhancement orders, pay modification/alteration orders, etc. The matter came up before the Central Information Commission which ruled that except for information that can be disclosed u/s 4(1)(b), all other information about the employees would be personal information, which includes the service details, property returns, etc. The CIC directed the public authority to give only the information relating to the names of the lecturers working in the Polytechnic, along with their designations and pay scale.

Comments

Many public information officers are harassed by RTI applicants who seek information about a government servant through a series of RTI applications. This order provides a way to deal with such cases.
