Agenda organized by Indian Chamber of Commerce

the achievements and check readiness of PSEs
in global supply chain. Speaking on the occasion,
Dr Tyagi said,"Although Public Sector
Enterprises are a force to reckon with, there

new markets." He reiterated that HAL

With the BJP government
in Haryana lowering the retirement age of
state government employees from 60 to 58 years,
it is being rumoured that the next in line
will be Delhi government (after the polls)
before being implemented by the central government
in the months to come. How far is it fair

DEBATE (1) Retirement Age
Flip flop is certainly not the characteristic of promising,
visionary and development minded leadership. Again it is
not a good idea to reverse decision without going into merits
and demerits. After system is well entrenched and dust has
finally settled there is no use crying hoarse except when
you wish to indulge in exercise in futility or you are looking
for lame excuse for your indifference and lethargy. Frankly
there may not have been many takers of the decision of extending
age to sixty years for considerations inter alia longevity
experience and financial exigency in view of more pressing
woes of younger generation in regard to monstrous rising
unemployment and menacing deprivation those days specially
with anathema of global downturn looming large. But once
a decision has become reality fait accompli. No successive
government should take recourse to fickle mindedness, dilatory
or procrastinating tactics on a dead issue. In stead of
making political capital out of a non issue they should
devise ways and means to create avenues of employment, business
and enterprise for the teeming millions of this country
specially educated youth growing restive. Let new initiatives
in skill development, job oriented education and professional
training create a launching pad for new horizons of livelihood
with dignity. In fact govt sector employment is a minuscule
minority and no panacea for vast majority of this country.
The need of hour is full scale preparedness to take to new
ideas, innovations technology, ameliorate talent with skill,
attract investment in human resource, incentivise income
and employment generating sectors, extirpate corruption
and nepotism, reward honesty and sincerity. Instead of shifting
goalposts, government will do well to envisage, evolve and
implement multipronged strategy to overcome scourge of unemployment.
O.P. Garg DGP Retd.
DEBATE(2) Retirement Age
Retirement age should be at 58 years age or 35 years service
whichever earlier. No re employment at any level whatsoever
DEBATE (3) Retirement Age
I am sure government will base its decision on sound merit,
however would suggest that government should bring parity
in the retirement age of CAPF personnel with central government
employees. CAPF personnel minus a few retire at the age
of 57 years where as personnel of Assam rifle and CISF retire
at 60 years. Age of retirement must be same for all government
employees and there should be no discrimination. Whatever
decision government takes will be welcome but have one age
R C Sharma
DEBATE(4) Retirement Age
It is a right decision. Jobs are required for the youth.
Most of the Older people are not able cop up with technology.
Hence the retirement age should be reduced to 58.
M Srinivasulu Reddy
Is it not funny?
The politicians who are either not qualified or least qualified
and are making all the policies of the Country for running
the administration continue to hold the coveted posts of
Ministers, Governors, President, Vice Presidents, Speakers
of Lok Sabha/state assemblies, MPs/MLAs far beyond the age
of retirement prescribed for the Central & State Govt.
Employees. Some of these persons are in their seventies
and Eighties and still found to be fit by this politicians
class for SERVING /LOOTING THE COUNTRY? Some blue-eyed Central
& State government employees are also given extensions
beyond age of retirement and plush appointments as CVC and
other constitutional posts then why not take a holistic
approach to fix the age of retirement for all those Govt.
Servants including Central/State employees, politicians
uniformally allowing no discretions at all to anybody in
the Govt. This is the situation in all the successful democracies
abroad. The differential age of retirement for rulers/politicians
and Govt. Servants had been prescribed by the British Rulers
and need to be reviewed by the Modi government which is
advocating revolutionary reforms of the polity. Otherwise
it s perpetuation of the Old wine in a new Bottle concept
to fool the masses.
Ignorant place for the patients
The metro hospital, sector 11, Noida is an ignorant place
for the patients belonging to CGHS benefits. They avoid
and even spoil the case and patients die. There is no one
to speak against Dr Purushottam Lal who had been the Physican
attending Harkishan Singh Surjit and others.The ladies are
worst ignored. They do not have ultra sound machines. Only
one machine with rotten reception and doctors are there.
The MRI people are hardly trained for the job and the staff
are not as they themselves run nursing school and get lowly
paid nurses who are not trained to look after the patients.
Dr Banerjee dealing with the diabetes calls patients to
his own clinic and charges handsome amount. Is this the
way of handling the patients ? CGHS is not taking action
against Dr Purushottam. He should be blacklisted and his
hospitals the business shop should be closed.
Misuse of government funds
Misuse of government funds by IASs and IRSs in many offices.
They use Govt. Vehicles as well as Private vehicles but
not entitled for vehicle and draw Transport Allowance, organize
parties/farewels from govt funds, uncountable newspapers
and magazines at home and office, also avail ROYAL facilities.
They make rules only for Gr. B, C, & D and no rule for

by officials who do not have powers to do so .I understand
that this power vests only with Government of India .Even

It is Government of India only which can afford to promote
6 officers at DDG level in DGS&D and keep them without
work for more than a month. What a waste of resources and
tax payer money.
Destruction of records during the pendency of RTI application
An application was filed under the RTI Act seeking information
regarding appointment of Associate Professor. The Public
Information Officer (PIO) replied that no such information
was available. The CIC did not accept the claim of the respondents
that the record is weeded out without showing their Weeding
out Policy, especially when an RTI application is pending
in respect of that record. The CIC observed that if the
record is weeded out during the pendency of the RTI application,
they will be held responsible. Referring to the Public Records
Act, 1993, the CIC asked the PIO to submit a certified copy
of the record retention schedule followed by the public
authority and the file noting with respect to the appellants
file which had been weeded out, along with the date of destruction.
Even if the records have outlived the time prescribed under
weeding out policy, the same cannot be destroyed if an application
under the RTI Act is pending. If any such records are destroyed,
a demand can be made for imposition of penalty under Section
20 of RTI Act.
