Have an open survey in Whispers

It would be interesting to have an open survey in Whispers as to:

1. the ministers who are giving importance to competency amongst the officers.

2. the ministers who are emphasizing on honesty and integrity amongst officers.

(both are not mutually exclusive- some ministers may be giving importance to both)

Manu Ashar

There is no such rank as Marshal in the Air Force. The proper ranks are Air Vice Marshal, Air Marshal and Air Chief Marshal. You need to be particular about military ranks which are not to be taken lightly. In the past also I had pointed out your error about Army ranks.

" Ethics in Journalism "

Recall the alert of January night Raisina Hill mystery coup of 2012 in Delhi, reported by the Indian Express that later slapped a defamation suit against a magazine and a few journalists including Late Vinod Mehta (one of contemnors ) claiming damages of Rs 100 crores. It turned out to be a damp squib. The public called it a grave conspiracy hatched by the dirty tricks department of the earlier dispensation that impacted National Security. Caught on the wrong foot, the case was pushed under the carpet and given a quiet burial by the perpetrators. The present status of defamation case, is not known? Also, whether, the contemnors approached the court for legal redressal ?
Could the truth behind the "mysterious" coup be suppressed ? India is not a banana republic. It is curious to know about it . How did the "mysterious" coup escape notice of India's National Security Advisor, one wonders ? Records of India's contemporary history , must be set right for the posterity.
Will PM Modi order investigation and get at the bottom of the truth ?
A K Saxena ( A retd civil servant)







Proof of Dispatch

The Appellant had asked for certain information about a bank account. Before the CIC, he claimed that the PIO had not responded to the appellant within the time frame prescribed under the RTI Act. The CIC observed that the PIO had sent a point-wise response to the appellant within the stipulated period and directed the PIO to provide proof of dispatch to the appellant.


A PIO should not only provide the information to an applicant, but should also keep a record of the same lest a charge of not following the time limit is made against him. In case of failure to provide the proof of timely dispatch of information, penalty might be imposed on the PIO.
