My Neighbors

My neighbors. ..both sides and front...and me ...we meet once a month ....usually some Coffee Chai Matti at our local roadside Tea Vend...nice and sunny ... extra sweet elaichi cha...crisp matti ....and friends ...

Me: Jaa ko raakhe Sayeea maar na sakke koye... against all odds Lance Naik Hanumanthappa survived .. its still touch and go ...but to come out alive is a miracle in itself....God Bless him ...
Neighbor 1: True ..... Modi went to the R&R facility ... how come Rahul and Arvind and their types did not visit R&R facility ...usually be it Dadri or Hyderabad etc., they are first off the block..
Neighbour 2: Maybe because Hanumanthappa is not a Dalit ...nor is he a Muslim ...

M: And had he been from Punjab the entire top brass of AAP would be seated outside R&R facility. ...
Neighbor 3: Speaking of Dalit. .. reservation is getting bad to worse ....merit should have a say at some stage when it comes to employment ...
N2: I still say Financial Status should be the sole criteria for reservation ... and post education merit should be the criteria ....
N1: Keep volume down... lest you want Pseudos to land up at your place protesting ... Reservation is like their Dal Roti ..

M: Speaking of Pseudos .... I hear in JNU there was a Shok Sabha for Afzal Guru by a section of students ....
N1: Type Shok and spellcheck changes it to Shock.... this is what it was...
N2: I personally feel Government should come down on such Sabhas like a tonne of bricks ..... we have too much Democracy in India in Modi Raaj....
N3: Why don't BJP Leaders now give a rest on the Beef issue ...they've got what they wanted ..... why keep bring it up....
N2: Yes I saw the news...that a BJP Leader has demanded that Beef Eaters should not come to Haryana ..maybe he was saying if you have to beef stay away as eating Beef is a crime in Haryana...

M: Punjabi adage.... apni nibhed tainoo horr naal ki ghatri sambhal tainoo chor naal ki... and please they should discuss issues within the Party before going Public...this Leader is responding to another Leader saying Haryana Government can consider Foreigners being exempted from Beef Ban...
N2: After AAP now Telnagana wants a salary hike for MLAs...
N3: And they'll get it.....because they themselves are the deciding authority ...haa yes Guv has to sign Order ...and Guvs are usually Netas ....

M: How can they decide their own salaries... there should be a Committee comprising of luminaries from all walks of life which decides salaries ...and same salary for MLAs pan India ..and MPs....
N1: And if their attendance is below a certain percentage then heavy deduction in salary..
N3: I think there are some MPs and MLAs for whom the salary is like lose change ...they'd happily forgo salary to do ...dill jo chaahta hai...should I name some..

M: Shhh.... but oddly otherwise their mindset is ... dill maange more.....

Now it is time to act

The farmers fall in the category of low income group as it is proved by the farmers taking extreme steps in cases not able to return the loan. It can generally be recognised that most of the farmers fall in the income group below 2 lakhs or so. Can FM understand why agriculture income is not taxable when their income is below the tax limits? This is generally for particular section of people to take the benefit of this section and enjoy tax free income. Govt. is already supporting by giving various type of subsidies like fertilizers etc. This is Government job to find out who is availing the benefit of agriculture income and take appropriate action. This has already been recommended by Kelkar Committee. Now it is time to act on this.

Company must have regular CMD

I am of the view that whichever it is decided, oil in the best interest of the company must have a regular CMD soonest. Adhoc arrangement beyond a reasonable period may be detrimental for efficient running of the company.

Congratulations Sir. You have demonstrated exceptional qualities as a leader and we all AERA officers are proud of you and wish all the very best in your new position.

Rs 30,000 cr to go into Income Tax

People are talking Rs1, 00, 000/ crore will be involved in the implementation of the 7th Pay Commission. But people are not factoring into consideration the fact that out this amount 30% i.e. Rs.30,000/- crore will go into the Income Tax Kitty. Further, when the Government employee carry out expenditure, it will bring about fluidity in the market, they will be paying sales tax, excise duty etc. This will also be a revenue for the Government. It may also be realised that in the Government of India a Secretary is working on the salary of almost equivalent to the MTS employee. If he is made to retire he will be earning almost 70% of the amount of his current salary in the form of the interests, which will accrue to him out of the various retiral payments. In fact the Government will be loosing by shunting him out.


Heartiest congratulations to Siddhant Das

Seeking copy of Caste Certificate of an officer

Appellant sought a copy of Schedule Tribe (ST) certificate of a particular officer under the RTI Act, on the basis of an assumption that it might be fake. The PIO replied that SC certificate was not enclosed to the service book of the officer. The Central Information Commission (CIC) asked the appellant whether the appellant is having any basis to his suspicion about the ST certificate and about his interest in seeking these details, but the appellant could not convince the CIC. The CIC observed that the appellant had been heard earlier by it in several appeals. The CIC commented that the appellant is a cantankerous misuser of RTI and does not deserve any sympathy or information, as there is no public interest. The appellant is wrecking vengeance against the authority and officers for taking stern action against his misconduct. The CIC admonished him for misuse of RTI. The CIC ruled that the Public Authority can reject his RTI applications about inquiry and inquiry officers as that would impede the entire process of inquiry.


There is no specific provision in the RTI Act regarding rejection of an application for alleged misuse of the RTI Act. However, the CIC has repeatedly come to the aid of the PIOs in cases of harassment by repeated filing of applications.
