We know during UPA days he had his way!

The circumstances have diametrically changed now!!
Now ED .. CBI... IT he can no longer cow!!

Of course like PC he will call this as pressure tactics to silence him!!!
Recall the old modified Bihari hymn!

Jabh takk rahe ga samose mein aloo!!
In Chalooness at number 1 position will be Laloo!

In Punjab power woes!!

Of course his 'nakli' concerns will be shown on the Telly!!

Media wants a share of his ad splurge!!!!
He can cause in their ad revenues a upsurge!!

Scindia is hopeful RaGa will lead Congress to victory in 2019 election!!

And straws too will disappear as nearer 2019 poll draws!!

Confucius says ...soon this National Party will become a Regional one!!
All because of a Mummy's Moh for her son!!

DEBATE

The conviction of three officers including former Coal Secretary H C Gupta and two serving IAS officers - K S Kropha, former Joint Secretary in the Coal Ministry and now Meghalaya Chief Secretary, and K C Samria, then Director in the Coal Ministry and now Joint Secretary in the Minority Affairs Ministry has sent shockwaves among bureaucrats. However the question that arises is that are the bureaucrats alone to be blamed for the mess or the political class should also be held responsible ?

Steel Minister highlights achievements of ministry (UPDATED)
The Union Steel Minister Chaudhary Birender Singh addressed a press conference on achievements of the Steel Ministry during 3 Years of NDA Government in New Delhi. He said that the Indian steel industry is at the cusp of another significant milestone by becoming the second largest stainless steel producer in the world, leaving behind Japan. Chaudhary Birender Singh said that the steel sector is only an example of all-round development in India under PM Modi ji's leadership. On May 3 this year the Cabinet under Prime Minister Modi approved two policies of the steel ministry and we are working on their implementation. We are very confident that steel sector will become more vibrant and dynamic after the 'National Steel Policy 2017' and 'Policy for preference to domestically manufactured iron & steel products in government procurement' becomes effective. The roadmap to implement the new policies will be finalized in the next six months to one year. Speaking of the SPU REVIVAL, he said that the three Steel Processing Units, Jagdishpur in UP, Bettiah in Bihar and Kangra in Himachal Pradesh are going to be operationalized within the next one year. This involves an investment of Rs. 500 crores. These units will produce value-added products like crash barriers, black pipes, TMT bars or GC sheets. Special Purpose Vehicle Route has been adopted by the Government of India for creation of Greenfield steel capacity in May 2015. The Process for the same was initiated in four states of Chhattisgarh, Odisha, Jharkhand and Karnataka. Talking of Zero Waste Production, the Steel Minister said that a 120 MW power plant was inaugurated in April 2017 at RINL Vishakhapatnam using the waste gases of the steel plant. The Huge Fine dumps, waste slag, slime etc. from steel plants need to be utilized by using innovative techniques for Pelletisation of fines, slag-cement for slag towards a Clean & Green Steel Sector in India. The Ministry of Steel & UNDP have worked for energy conservation in 300 secondary steel units. Plans are to upscale to 1000 secondary steel units. This would reduce CO2 emissions, roughly equal to taking all passenger cars off Delhi's roads, Chaudhary Singh added. Birender Singh said that Steel industry needs to go for a paradigm shift and move from semi-finished/crude steel to value-added steel. This will lead to better margins and improve competitiveness. "We are hopeful that SAIL & Arcelor Mittal would soon formalize the Joint Venture for production of automotive-grade steel. This will be a big step-forward under the Prime Minister's Make in India Programme" Singh added. Enlisting new Schemes for Secondary Steel Producers in 2017-18, he said that the steel ministry will rate the ranking of Top-50 Secondary Steel/Smart Producers and awards will for best performing plants in secondary steel sector solely on the criterion of their products of BIS standards and cost effectiveness. The Minister also announced the institution of Best Steel Structures Awards for best steel structures in PMAY (Rural and Urban), building projects, and roads made with steel reinforced cement concrete and other extraordinary structures using steel in abundance. Chaudhary Birender Singh said that the GST regime is good for Steel Team as Goods & Services Tax Rates and Slabs for raw materials like iron ore, manganese, coal etc. is in the bracket of 5 %. Semi-finished and unfinished goods is in 18 % bracket. Steel industry will see a reduction in the input cost for steel making with the GST implementation.


Call for Aerospace manufacturing policy for India (UPDATED)

Dr RK Tyagi, former chairman HAL and mentor - director Defence Innovators and industry Association (DIIA) called for a further effective Aerospace manufacturing policy for India. While welcoming the recent policy on 'Strategic Partnership' announced by Jaitly, the defence minister of India, he stated that allowing manufacturing of single - engine fighter aircraft and Helicopters under this category will lead to higher technological capabilities of Aerospace manufacturing sector.

Dr Tyagi was happy to note that already more than 150 Indian SME's are now part of global supply chain. Aerospace and defence sector in India as a whole and SMEs in particular will do better as long term visibility on strategic defence projects is now in place. He also called upon Ministry of Defence to now start work on development of regional Civil Aircraft (MOD responsibility now as per allocation of business rules of GOI) to give boost to the PM's vision of Make - in - India in Aerospace and defence sector. It is estimated that in next 10 years, more than 900 - 1000 commercial jets will be inducted in Indian skies as India prepares to be 3rd largest aviation market of the World. It is a high time that India develops its own homegrown aircraft for use in civil and defence applications. Besides developing cutting edge technologies for India, it will also create a huge employment potential for Indian youth.

Why Paki represented India in the ICJ ?


Enron was a scam of greater proportion than any other till the Coalgate got exposed. It was a case of mass bribing of all concerned. Those who acted against public interest were rewarded with appointment to institutions like the UPSC post retirement. Union Carbide/Anderson, Enron and the 2014 Lok Sabha election time media report of piles of money shown to the American diplomat are evidence of the American influence in running the government of India. How can American media and political class complain of Russia "influencing" American Presidential Election 2016 when they indulge in such acts in India. If the nation is to be told the whole truth about Enron/Dabhol business, nothing short of a Nation Commission of Inquiry will do justice to that loot. It was in that series that a Paki represented India in the ICJ.

Is the PM aware ?


This is amazing news. 1900 IAS officers have not submitted their Immovable Property Returns? That is almost 45% of Cadre strength ! Is the PM aware of this fact ? All of them must be sent a show cause legal notice now! No promotions , no increase in emoluments , no NFU , no VRS , no pension , and more till the returns are submitted and verified. In the Armed Forces of India this would result in strict disciplinary action .

DATE WITH RTI

Transfer of RTI Application to several PIOs

A complaint was filed with the CIC alleging that the information sought was not provided and the complainant’s RTI application was transferred to several CPIOs who did not revert in a positive way. The CIC advised the public authority to desist from these kinds of practices which defeats the very purpose and motive of the RTI Act.

Comments

It is a common practice in the headquarters of many organisations to transfer the RTI applications received at their end to different sub-ordinate offices carelessly. Such a blind redirection of the RTI applications needs to be curbed as the same is not envisaged under the Act.
