The Prime Minister Narendra Modi handed over an indigenous Advanced Light Helicopter (ALH) - Dhruv - built by Hindustan Aeronautics Limited to the Prime Minister of Nepal Sushil Koirala at Kathmandu. The copter will be used by Nepalese Army. HAL team lead by T Suvarna Raju, Managing Director, HAL (Helicopter Complex) was present on the occasion.

The Company's technical support team is positioned at Kathmandu to provide maintenance and logistics support. Earlier, India had provided two Dhruv helicopters to Nepalese Army in November last year, adds Dr Tyagi. Dhruv helicopter in Mark-III version with Shakti engines and advanced glass cockpit and avionics would immensely benefit Nepal, known for its mountainous terrain and adverse environmental conditions. The helicopter has a proven track record in both military and civil operations. It is designed to meet the requirement of both military and civil operators. Dhruv has also been exported to Ecuador, Mauritius and Maldives. The Ecuador Air Force (FAE) operates five Dhruv helicopters with their president choosing to fly in one of them. Dhruv is particularly useful in meeting the arduous tasks in difficult terrains. Dhruv helicopters played a key role in search and rescue operations during the 2004 tsunami, the 2010 flash floods at Leh, the 2011 earthquake in Sikkim, the biggest ever rescue operation by helicopters undertaken by IAF in flood and rain-hit areas of Uttarakhand in June-2013 and Jammu & Kashmir flood relief operation in September-2014. Dhruv is being operated by Indian Air Force, Indian Army, Indian Navy, Coast Guard, BSF and State governments since 2002. More than 140 Dhruv helicopters are in operation logging more than 1, 20,900 flight hours. Dhruv is a multi-role, multi-mission new generation helicopter in 5.5 tonne weight class and meets Federal Aviation Regulations (FAR) specifications. It has demonstrated its capability in long distance flights, vertical climb and manoeuvring. Dhruv is an all-weather helicopter which can carry 10-16 people at heights of 10,000 feet.

IRS happenings
Sunil's comment on plight of IRS is not comparable with IAS. Indirect tax is lower than direct tax, hardly any value addition by officers, GST will go to states for tax administration in due course, Customs will go to Home ministry immigration, all indirect taxes will be abolished then why crib for promotion.

S Bandhopadhyay

It is not a good idea!

On one side the new Railway Minister speaks of augmenting badly needed passenger comforts, on the other side comes the suggestion of replacing sleeper berths in trains with chaircars to increase the carrying capacity of trains where the travel time is overnight. Travelling 10 hours in a chaircar at night is far from comfortable for any human being specially elderly, women and children. Railways will also lose revenue as the difference in fare for a sleeper class and a chair car is certainly more than the revenue earned from additional seating capacity so generated. It is not a good idea, sir ji.

Aarti Khosla

Very critical observations
Very critical observation's but can't be ignored by the leadership which may be slipping into arrogance due to the powerful mandate received by them.

Personal information of a government employee

The appellant asked for the service details of a teacher regarding her date of joining the service, her present residential address and her salary certificates, etc. During hearing before the CIC, the teacher submitted that the information seeker is her husband who is harassing her. She raised objection to the disclosure of information to the appellant, saying that it is her personal information. The CIC held that information about salary and official address of public servant is public in nature and shall be disclosed to any person including spouse. Salary details including deductions contained in Salary slip or certificate and residential address of the public servants is personal information, and also third party information. Only after proof of larger public interest such information also can be given. Filing of 50 RTI applications reflects the personal animosity but not public interest.


Cases where spouses are seeking information about each other are now increasingly coming to notice. They may be involved in marital disputes and cases both civil and criminal, may be filed mutually against each other. They can also seek information to help them to prove or disprove the charges. However, it must be born in mind that information unconnected with the discharge of public duties should not be provided unless the disclosure establishes a larger public interest.
