Retirement age
ICS officers retired at 55 or 33 years of service, whichever was earlier. This ensured that nobody had an age advantage after entry into service. In independent India, in the new IAS since 1948, retirement happened at 55. In 1962, during the Indo China conflict, retirement age was refixed at 58. Later, in the NDA raj, it became 60. The rise in retirement age was correct, seeing the rise in life expectancy and healthier workforce. But having no cap on serving number of years was counter-productive. It ensured that those who gave false dates of birth at the time of matriculation benefitted. It also ensured that the younger to join services reached the top, regardless of relative merit. The playing field was not level any more. An outstanding officer who joined at 25 (and whose age was correctly written) had no scope to reach the top. The possibly less outstanding who had joined at 23 (though actually aged 25, the beneficiary of his/ her parents' foresight in having given lower age at matriculation) hogged top posts. This is not to say that all who joined at later age were more meritorious or all who joined at younger ages had falsified their ages. However, the government had no option but to choose from among only those who had not retired, for the top posts. Say a batch had 10 officers. Four were outstanding, out of which one joined at 22, three joined at 25. Six were termed "very good" but not outstanding and all joined at 22. In this case, after 36 years, only one outstanding officer would be left for the government to choose from for the top posts. If the government is thinking of bringing back the ICS like retirement clause, it may be for the good. However, the issue needs debate whether merit based promotions or this kind of age cap could be the right kind of reform.

CMOs not clear?

I fully agree that CGHS is run very badly n its procedures need a total overhaul. However, to put the blame at the doors of Lady CMOs is absolutely unfair.
Surinder Pal

7th PC recommendations

It is good if retirement is either at 60 years or after 33 years of service. It would be better the retirement is either 62 years or 35 years of service. Secondly the age limit for jobs shall be 21 years to 35 years. This would help in eliminating fraud age affidavits and fraud certificates and early marriages, corruption, favouritism, casteism, regionalism, politics in government and PSUs. The country will develop and can retain the best who are migrating to USA.

Dictations still given

I do not understand the common refrain on this channel that no officer gives dictations nowadays. It is factually incorrect. Maybe where notes are very brief (in some posts, that can be so), such is the case. Wherever longer notes are to be drafted, minutes of meetings are to be taken, proceedings are to be drawn up, cabinet notes are to be drafted etc, dictations have to be given. One should not make absolute statements without studying the situation.

Steel sector revenue

Private Sector Steel magnates also pay income & and other taxes adding revenue to the government coffers. They are also indirectly the 'karta-darta of SAIL'. If they are appointed on the Board of SAIL, they could also provide essential inputs for the benefit of the company. China is facing crisis in the steel sector as whatever investment which had to be made within the country has already been made helping the steel sector. China is now dumping steel in other parts of the world. Time has come, when the Government started disinvesting in the steel sector PSUs one by one.

DATE WITH RTI

Filing of RTI Application to know the fate of earlier application

An application was under the RTI Act seeking information regarding action taken on an earlier RTI application and first appeal filed by the Complainant. A reply was sent to him on but the Complainant stated that he did not receive this reply. The Respondents volunteered to send another copy to him. While noting that no further action is due on this RTI application, the CIC observed that the right course of action for an RTI applicant, in the event of the PIO not responding to his RTI application, is to file an appeal to the First Appellate Authority and thereafter, if necessary, an appeal / complaint to the Commission. Instead, the Complainant took upon himself to enquire into the delay on the part of the Respondents in responding to his earlier RTI application by filing yet another RTI application. Filing of such applications is avoidable because the RTI Act provides for appeals / complaint process in the event of unsatisfactory action by Respondents on an RTI application. Such applications needlessly clog the system.

Comments

RTI act is a self contained act which provides for the mechanism to deal with cases where replies have not been received. An applicant should use the modalities provided under the Act which can provide him the best results.
