Modi needs to think out of the box on civil service reforms

While the government is taking a number of steps on the policy front, it is faced with a serious handicap in its inability to translate many of the policies into effective action. One critical factor hindering progress is the steel frame of civil service, the IAS and allied services that is not skilled enough in new age technology, project management, strategic thinking. Three things need to happen (a) Short term /online training of senior and mid career officials , getting them to acquire knowledge in specialized areas such as trade and law, IPRs, operational research, impact assessment frameworks etc. (b) make lateral recruitment at senior position in governments , including attracting the Indian diaspora? NRIs that have excelled in academia, working in UN and other intergovernmental organizations (c) Encourage govt officers to go on sabbatical/deputations including with universities, NGOs and identified private sector.

Wind up MoS & PI

I am sad to see people demanding winding-up of MOS&PI. A few months back, I too wanted PMO to be winded-up. Today, I want PMO first. Change the leadership and see the difference. Like UPA, MOS&PI has also suffered for last 8 years from inept leadership. The two institutions, NASA (now renamed as NSSTA) and NSE under MOS&PI were supposed to revolutionise the statistical system but they proved themselves counter-productive. A sound statistical system would have enabled our PM to make this country develop much faster but the inefficiency of the leadership has damaged us like anything. I hope, PM can provide a better leader to the system.

Information related to the vehicle which caused an accident

The son of the appellant suffered a serious road accident and became handicapped. The appellant sought information regarding registration details of a vehicle No.DL8C9080 which was involved in the road accident to help him to claiming compensation and other actions against the owner of the vehicle. The Central Information Commission (CIC) observed that such cases have to be treated as extraordinarily urgent and as the victim is alive, he needs to fight for survival and recover from the injuries. The CIC ruled that the information sought by the appellant is very vital and pertains to life and liberty of the victim, therefore, the answer has to be provided within 48 hours. The CIC issued show cause notice to PIO why penalty should not be imposed for not providing the information within the prescribed time period.


Many public authorities are unaware of the provision whereby an applicant can seek information under the "life and liberty" clause and the same has to be provided within 48 hours. A large number of organisations are ill equipped to deal such an application. This case law provides an idea of what may be covered under the definition of "life and liberty".
