FORUM

DEBATE(1)

Complete mismanagement and ordeal.

Harpal Singh

 

DEBATE (2)

This is like saying one nation one ministry

However merger of services with similar functions is the need of the hour.All India services should be merged. There is no ground for one particular service hogging all the limelight and promotions. Merger of 8 railway services is a laudable step. Similarly all accounts based services should be merged-defence, civil, audit and accounts, cost accounts service etc. Customs and income tax services should be merged. Indian Economic and Statistical services, postal and telecom services be merged etc. There is an urgent need for overhaul of recruitment process which is long, laborious and encourages rattu totas with average intelligence. A lot of the current lot of officers are under utilised, doing repetitive work, almost redundant and deadwood by the time they spend 10 years in service. A bunch of officers are kept engaged for a work item which can easily be delivered by one officer. The evaluation system of annual confidential reports does not give a correct evaluation of the officer. It is just a reflection of the buttering, back biting and scratch my back and I scratch yours. Officers have retired at very senior posts including FA in key infrastructure ministries with disastrous results in performance and revenue downslide in the ministry witnessed during their tenure, with no questions asked. In this kind of a comfortable scenario , lining your own pockets especially before retirement is a prime mover. Urgent overhaul of recruitment, training, merger and streamlining of services is the need of the hour without further delay.

DATE WITH RTI

Non - compliance of CIC order

Appellant filed RTI application seeking information about the status of Vigilance Enquiry against Shri Balraj for alleged filing of false affidavit and related information. The Respondent submitted that similar matter was heard and adjudicated by the Commission earlier in CIC/DELJB/C/2017/156869 dated 16.05.2019 and that the investigation in the case was completed as on date. On being queried regarding the compliance of the aforementioned order directing the PIO to send a reply afresh to the Complainant within 2 weeks, no satisfactory response was offered by the Respondent. The CIC instructed the Respondent to ensure the compliance of the earlier order pronounced by the CIC and provide a revised reply to the Appellant within a period of 02 weeks from the date of this order under intimation to the CIC failing which penal action u/s 20 (1) of the RTI Act may be initiated.

Comments

This case shows that the Information Commission does possess an independent mechanism to ensure compliance of its own orders. The number of cases where the PIO has not complied with the directions of the CIC is likely to increase in the absence of fear of penalty.
