Chhattisgarh is now role model for Uttar Pradesh too !

With many of the reforms introduced under the National Food Security Act being already modeled on PDS reforms implemented in Chhattisgarh, it is now the turn of Uttar Pradesh to follow suit with Yogi Adityanath having said in Gorakhpur the other day that they will follow Chhattisgarh pattern. They are sending a team to Chhattisgarh to study the ingredients of the system. Chhattisgarh government led by Chief Minister Raman Singh, it may be pointed out here, has introduced a series of major reforms to the delivery and procurement of PDS food grains. Chhattisgarh government's PDS reforms have been lauded time and again for effecting a dramatic improvement in PDS performance in the state so much so that even the Supreme Court has once observed that why Chhattisgarh could not serve as a model for the rest of the country.These reforms are widely believed to be responsible for the state's success in improving the distribution of food grains through PDS.

Democracy ?
While BJP won more seats in UP, but CM, A N Yogi did not contest and is not a MLA. So where is the question of People's Mandate ? He has been thrust upon the people by High Command of BJP .This is not democracy.
S Gopal

Democracy in real sense

Democracy in real sense as said by Lincoln is For the people, By the people and of the people. But never happens. It is a Dream Project which is never true and up to winning elections.
NGT and Pollution norms entering in petty issues like ban on slaughter house, Consumption of liquor etc. will slow down growth.
It was legal earlier and part of food and main attraction of tourism and employed crores citizen. Over dose of any thing is bad. Illegal could have been legalized.
Employment will be badly hit and rehabilitation will be another problem.







Service records for the period 1980 to 1986

The appellant sought information regarding his adhoc appointment in NDMC from 22.03.1980 to 16.03.1986. He appealed to CIC claiming that the records pertaining to his service on adhoc basis w.e.f. 22.03.1980 to 16.03.1986 were not made available to him, thereby causing impediments in grant of higher pay allowance/ terminal benefits, which are otherwise due to him. The PIO stated that no records prior to regular absorption of the appellant in year 1986 are available in his personal file. The appellant drew the attention of the Commission towards copies of orders of initial adhoc appointment and subsequent extensions thereafter. The CIC directed the PIO to certify as to whether the appellant worked with NDMC on adhoc basis from 1980-86 with/without break or not.


With the advent of the RTI Act, many public authorities are finding it difficult to respond to applications due to poor record keeping practice. With the increasing reliance of public and its own employees on the RTI Act to gather basic material for grievance redressal, improving the record maintenance should be high on priority of all public organisations.
