Unified Service in CPOs

Border Guarding Forces (BSF, ITBP and SSB) could be merged into BSF, while, CRPF, Delhi Police, CISF and NSG could all be merged into CRPF. These mergers must not be only for Officers but must include all ranks and be total mergers.

All India Central Medical Services (AMC, CGHS, CAPFMS and Railway Medical Services) too must be merged and Combatised Medical Service must be for only those doctors and paramedical staff below 40 years. Beyond 40 years the medical and paramedical staff may either serve in Secondary or Tertiary Care centres or at nation wide dispensaries and polyclinics which can serve as PMJAY registering and referral centres and also as surge capacity in times of Disasters or Pandemics. In fact merger of Central Medical Services must be the first priority

Injustice to technical community

As a senior technocrat myself, I feel very sorry for Mr Sharma who did not make it to the Central Regulatory Authority post. In technically oriented organizations, technocrats should be given the rightful credit and pride of place. I am of the strong opinion that the selection committee, whoever it may be, has done gross injustice to Mr Sharma in particular and the technical community in general. If the services of very talented technocrats are not recognised and utilised properly, the nation as a whole stands to lose on expertise. It is no wonder that thousands and thousands of our brightest engineers flock to outside countries as soon as they graduate because they know that their talents are better recognised and rewarded in those nations when compared to their motherland.

Possibility of unrest amongst unions

The appellant alleged that there were irregularities in the dividend distributed to the beneficiaries by the ITI Colony Welfare Committee (Gas Agency) and sought information about the dividend distribution. The PIO submitted that the information sought by the appellant cannot be given as the disclosure of the information sought may cause a breach of commercial confidence. He further submitted that the dividends are paid as per the decision of IOC and there is possibility of unrest among different unions if this information is made public. The CIC ruled that disclosure would not breach commercial confidence of respondents and the third parties.


Any process should be transparent to ensure fairness in the system. It is the responsibility of the public authorities to pro-actively disclose information to ensure faith of the citizens in the system.
