What people say about us!

I have been a regular visitor of your site. It only caters to minuscule section of society. Ours is a large country and there are many more institutions within the umbrella of power, it appears your site least care for them may be those institutions are not news makers. They also contribute substantially to the society and in the nation building as well. I can only appeal to you to allot space for happenings in those institutions as well.

DEBATE

What is the character of Narendra Modi ?

With Prime Minister Narendra Modi becoming the third most followed world leader on Twitter, next only to US President Barack Obama and the Pope, he is being discussed everywhere so much so that people have started comparing him with world leaders of the past. "Is Modi Stalin, Hitler, Mussolini, Roosevelt or Churchill" ?

DEBATE (1)

What is the character of Narendra Modi ?


As per my view, he is different from all the mentioned characters but closest would be Roosevelt. He can be a great revolutionist and can turn India growth story. I have read few books to understand his character and governing style . You can advice your followers to read this book to understand his character well "Centrestage - Inside The Narendra Modi Model Of Governance". Here author had done lot of ground work, other books are just in air.

DEBATE (2)


What is the character of Narendra Modi ?

Modi is a man of determination, having an urge to deliver his concept of Development. Man of actions to the core, a strict disciplinary. India is considered as one of the largest customer provider, hence people want to invest in India for mutual benefit. That is why he is third most tweeted personality.

Prabhakar N V K

Why senior bureaucrats failing to maintain discipline ?


It was reported in TV channels that Minister Venkaiah Naidu made a surprise visit to the ministry and found many staff absent. The main issue is why the senior bureaucrats are failing in their duty which includes maintaining discipline within the staff under them. It is clear that they are themselves partly responsible for tolerating such indiscipline. They should be dealt with accordingly and action be taken against them for their failure to do their job. Country has suffered too much due to the lackadaisical attitude.

" Need for Crystal-clear transparency by DoP&T "


DoP&T's orders No-- 12/3/2008-EO(SM-III) (Part-II) dated 24/07/2014, details empanelment guidelines for posts of Joint Secretaries and above at the Centre. Para I(e) is considered particularly dangerous as it gives sweeping powers to the Secretaries Committee/ GoI to reject any one's candidature without speaking orders. While, inter alia, considering the experience profile of eligible officers, the Screening Committee, is asked to evaluate qualities like: "General reputation" and " Flair for participating in policy making process ". Are these ethereal attributes quantifiable without having personal interactions with candidates? Why does DOP&T ,headed by PM himself , fight shy of interviewing candidates for top level appointments in GOI, in presence of their Annual performance appraisal reports ? The guidelines are out of sync with Modi's stated policy on Good governance and transparency. These are required to be amended, suitably so as to locate competent officers ,who are neither pliable nor politically committed.

DATE WITH RTI

RTI Act does not provide the right to supervise the day to day working

The appellant sought certain information including the weekly certificate. After receiving these documents, the appellant again wrote to the FAA to inspect records of weekly certificates signed by the officials and the dates when each of them was sent to the next officer to check their authenticity. The FAA did not reply to this communication. The case came up before the CIC where the question before the Commission was whether the appellant's request for inspection should have been allowed after the documents asked for had been provided to him, since the request for inspection was made to check the authenticity of the documents provided. The CIC held that the appellant's request virtually amounted to supervising and monitoring the day to day functions of the public authority and refused to grant any relief to the appellant. The CIC ruled that the RTI Act cannot be used for establishing an unending dialogue with a public authority about general concerns or apprehensions that an appellant may have in his mind.

Comments


Once the public authority had provided an information or complied with an order passed under the RTI Act, the obligation under the Act is fulfilled. The Section 2(j) of the RTI Act does not provide the right to supervise and monitor day to day working of a public authority.
