Meeting to discuss ArcelorMittal and SAIL automotive joint venture held (UPDATED)

ArcelorMittal welcomed Minister Chaudhary Birender Singh, Union Minister of Steel of the Government of India, P K Singh, Chairman, SAIL and the Indian Government's Joint Secretary Ministry of Steel, Sunil Barthwal, to its London offices for discussions regarding the proposed US$1 billion automotive steel joint venture ('JV') between ArcelorMittal and SAIL. Lakshmi Mittal, Chairman and CEO, Aditya Mittal, group CFO and CEO ArcelorMittal Europe and Brian Aranha, Executive Vice President and head of global automotive, who is leading the joint venture discussions on behalf of ArcelorMittal, attended the meeting along with other members of senior management. ArcelorMittal and SAIL signed a Memorandum of Understanding in May 2015 to explore the possibility of setting up a state-of-the-art automotive steel manufacturing facility under a JV arrangement in India. The proposed JV will construct world-class facilities for manufacturing automotive steel that will offer technologically advanced steel products for India's rapidly growing automotive sector. The hot rolled input products for the proposed facility would be supplied by SAIL's new state-of-the-art hot strip mill in Rourkela, Odisha, thus making the entire value chain indigenous. The project's Joint Working Group, which was established following the signing of the MoU, has completed the major part of the project's Feasibility Report. India is forecast to become the world's third largest automobile manufacturing nation by 2026, with passenger vehicles likely to grow from approximately 3 million units today to over 7 million units in the next 10 years. In response to the growing level of automotive demand, and supported by the Indian Government's 'Make In India' programme which has been designed to transform India into a global manufacturing hub, automotive manufacturers have been establishing an increased presence in the country.

Arguments are strange indeed !

I am shocked and surprised at the suggestion of Sivaraman - former Secy Revenue. He dismisses UPSC and wants political leaders and others to select. Perhaps written exam should be done away with and only a 30 minute interview should decide the fate of a candidate. Well he should know that even now the UPSC has academics from universities in the interview and the system is robust. If his suggestion is to be accepted then take people from the open market, in the name of experts, especially those who failed the civil service. How do you select experts from the market otherwise, among lakhs of professionals, by their proximity to the selectors.

Even today, the academics and judiciary have only interview, and the result is that both have relatives and friends , without any competition in the service, and become experts. On the other hand children of IAS have to go through competition, and are fools! Strange arguments indeed!

S Chatterjee

TIME TO PAUSE- Distinguishing characteristic of the premier service


Sivaraman - former Secy Revenue has very rightfully brought out the rot that has penetrated into once an elite and respected IAS-Civil Services. Unfortunately to a great extent the royalty of civil servants is missing. Good number of them consider the entry as an opportunity of facilitating his own limitless economic growth that can't happen without compromising the exchequers interests. The hallmarks - intellect, modesty and service - have been taken over by arrogance and greed in this service. Instead of happily devoting time on redressing public grievances and researching intellectual , painstaking innovative ways of policy formulations to right track and smooth-en the en- cumbersome systems in the interest of a common man, they find time and company of brokers and fixtures more meaningful. Some of them, if reminded of the rules against the "desire" go vindictive in framing the colleague and teaching him a lesson. To settle scores they even generate litigation at government costs. As a result of their vested and sycophancy attitude some of the corrupts even succeed in snatching post retirement positioning. Unfortunate it may be but this is undeniably a hard core reality. However, despite the rot this service still attracts the best of talents. Majority of them get into the service to serve the masses and practice the highest standards of morality throughout life .While over all deterioration of ethical values and standards in the society could be one of the reasons of this evil not sparing the IAS as they too belong to the Society the process of selection of Civil Servants, subsequent training, role of reputation/perception of IAS in progression ,sacred and secret dossiers on functioning deserve to be looked into. The IAS Association, need to play a more responsible role in strengthening the image of this service which is falling to its low with each passing day rather than wasting time in supporting retired bureaucrats riddled in scams. It will be more appropriate if the Courts pronounce their innocence.

Were all Sivaraman's colleagues honest to the core ?


I read Sivaraman's lamentation about the declining values among the younger officers in the IAS with great interest. Sivaraman laments the fact that some young IAS officers are being jailed for corruption. As a solution he suggests that age of intake be reduced and examination for the IAS and IFS should be a separate one, just as it was in his day.
Let us examine his thesis dispassionately. Firstly, if in a cadre of 5000 people, some are dishonest, does that make everyone fit for the same label? Are all judges dishonest, only because some have been found to be so? Are all politicians dishonest, just because a tiny majority have been found to be so?
As a matter of fact, for Sivaraman's recall, even some ICS officers during British times were dismissed for corruption. They were recruited at very young age and through a different examination. By his thesis, were all ICS officers dishonest.
Were Sivaraman's colleagues, all of them, honest to the core (recruited at a young age, through a separate examination)?
A cursory recall of many IAS officers' doings during the emergency would be enough to prove Sivaraman's thesis wrong.
The newspapers also have the names of retired IAS officers among those who had bank accounts abroad. Retired IAS officers are also facing charges of graft. The IAS officers jailed for graft during the last thirty years were not all junior officers, most of them were recruited through separate examination and recruited at a young age.
The UP IAS Association voted some IAS officers as most corrupt. Many IAS officers recruited through a separate examination and at a young age were searched by the CBI and Income tax and were found to be in possession of assets running into hundreds of crores. Were they not recruited young and through a separate examination?
Sivaraman and his colleagues served during the heyday of the licence, permit quota raj. The unscrupulous among the lot were subservient to some of the political masters, lined their pockets and left, their reputations intact, to rail at the corruption indulged in by some who were to join the service they had joined. They could do so because those were less transparent times, when IAS officers (and of course all other officers and politicians and judges) were mai baap and also enjoyed powers far wider than IAS officers of recent vintage. Nobody could point fingers at them, they were protected by law (till very recently, the CBI could not initiate proceedings against officers of Joint Secretary rank and above without sanction from the government) just like Judicial officers.
The truth is that Sivaraman's thesis is flawed. Under colour of a tirade against corruption among younger officers, he actually longs for the days of yore, when the IAS was an elitist preserve. What he finds unpalatable, is the older candidate, who might have suffered many inequalities of birth and upbringing, but joins the IAS despite those initial handicaps by overcoming all odds, due to the equality of opportunity provided by the Indian state to older candidates. Sivaraman would do well to recall that the beginnings of the freedom struggle were rooted in the struggle to get the age for the appearing candidates for the ICS examination increased !

Janab Nafri haini


In the police magistracy meeting being held at the police lines, in the aftermath of killing of two innocent citizens at the hands of the terrorists, more than three decades back, an elderly deputy commissioner said, ''Since such incidents have increased in the area, we should increase the patrolling and the number of barriers in the city, as well as in the rural areas. ''The SSP said that he had already taken up the matter with the DGP for providing 4 battalions of para-military forces and in whispers he also asked the deputy commissioner to speak to the Home Secretary about this for expediting the matter. The concerned SDM wanted more policemen to be deployed in a town by sparing from the other places, which was highly volatile communally and had also undergone curfew for a few days, only a month ago .The SSP looked at the DSP of that sub division, who seemed already prepared with the answer, ''Janab saade kol ttan nafri haini (sir, we do not have numbers).The SDM was a very outspoken person and would not be satisfied without going into the details. He wanted that very tall and heavily built DSP to give him the details of deployment of available police strength in the sub division.That triggered the bickering and deputy commissioner assured to look into the matter.
Quite substantial portion of that area situated in the foothills was suitable for plantation of fruit trees particularly Kinnus and the throw-away prices of the land had tempted many high-ups to purchase land there. SDM had seen police tents pitched at some places, but he had not made enquiries as to what some people living in police tents in the deserted areas, in such dangerous times were doing. He started to collect their details through the Nambardars, Chowkidars and some trust-worthy Patwaris. He was astonished to know that the DSP, who was very vociferous in saying that sufficient number of police force was not available had purchased 25 acres of land and kept ten policemen in that land for its levelling and plantation of orchard. High ranking Civil officers, some even posted at Delhi had also invested in land purchases and through their contacts had also got such tents pitched in their lands for the same purpose. It was surprising that when it was considered unsafe to invest in the state , so many people were investing here. SDM noted down the ownership details and the number of policemen and civilians working at 6 such places .
That SDM was perhaps the only one who did not have a gunman.In the next meeting of police and magistrates, it was proposed that at each police barrier a duty magistrate should be deployed. The deputy commissioner did not agree on the plea that number of magistrates was limited and a magistrate would be posted where DSP was performing law and order duty. Some police officers raised the issue of magistrates not being co-operative in detaining the accused under 107/151CrPC.Most vocal was the DSP, who had deployed his subordinate force at his newly acquired farm- house. The daring SDM then very politely explained that he had requested for a gunman for a number of times, but each time it was turned down with the excuse that there was no Nafri. Then he divulged the details of the Nafri, which had been deployed at the farm-houses. The number surprised many but not all.

DATE WITH RTI

Delay in clearance of Medical bills

A pensioner had submitted medical bills for reimbursement, which were kept pending by the respondent authority, for a long time. Hence, he sought information on the status of the same through the RTI application. The appellant submitted that he is the life member/beneficiary of the DGHS (Delhi Government Health Scheme) and as per the circular issued by them on 1.4.1997, he is entitled for 100% reimbursement of his medical bills. But the respondent authority has not taken cognizance of the same and he was made to wait for receiving the reimbursement for a long time. The respondent authority submitted that all his medical bills were settled and he has been paid all the medical dues in February, 2015. They also explained that the delay is due to the fact that the case of the appellant is the first of its kind, as he has retired from an aided school and as per the rules, the aided is required to bear 5% of the reimbursement and rest of the 95% will be borne by the Department of Education. But this rule is applicable only for serving employees of the aided schools. In this case, the appellant had retired and the bills are submitted after his retirement. Even the circular issued by the DGHS, which is being referred by the appellant, is not clear in the case of pensioners who had retired from aided schools. The CIC noted that the appellant is 76 year old senior citizen. The CIC directed the Rakesh Khadgam Senior Accounts Officer (deemed PIO) to show cause why maximum penalty should not be imposed on him for the delay in furnishing the information to the appellant.

Comments


This case depicts that the RTI Act, 2005 has not only emerged as a tool for obtaining information, but also for enforcing the rights.
