Bureaucrats do not go through manual office procedure
It is a tragedy of the nation that a number of bureaucrats
even the Secretaries have not bothered to go through the
Manual of Office Procedures. Recently, one of the Secretaries
because of his personal difference with the Minister got
angry with the Private Secretary of the Minister that why
has he written a note on the file and he is not entitled
to. The Private Secretary of the Minister once appointed
with the approval of ACC becomes a Government employee.
The paragraph Nos.38 and 162 of the CSMOP substantiates
the fact that the private staff of the Ministers can make
notings. Just look at the Secretary for trying to establish
his contention he had enclosed a copy of paper obtained
through google. It seems that the Secretary has no work
and hence he is following the same old method of policy
GoI facing space crunch for housing its offices in Delhi
The Central Government is facing severe space crunch for
housing its offices in New Delhi. In some of the Bhawans
like Shram Shakti Bhawan and Shastri Bhawans two more floors
can be added and underground parking created under the lawns.
In Shram Shakti Bhawan the offices of the Central Water
Commission and Central Electricity Authority could be located
in order to maintain better coordination with the Ministry
of Water Resources and Ministry of Power respectively. You
will get a lot of space in the Sewa Bhawan where at present
there are housed. The Sewa Bhawan could be used by the Central
Information Commission and Lokpal. A number of offices of
the Ministry of Tribal Affairs and Ministry of Human Resource
Development can be housed in the Shastri Bhawan. The I&B
Ministry in the Shastri Bhawan can be transferred to the
Soochna Bhawan in CGO complex.

Some officers in CBEC facing vigilance action
There are some officers in CBEC against whom vigilance
action is being taken by the Board. No doubt they would
like officers from outside with no expertise to become CVO
in CBEC so that they can get away scot free.
Modi should take prompt action in selecting heads in PSUs,
In continuation to this article, I feel that Narendra Modi
should have included Dr Manmohan Singh and some other leaders
of opposition parties in his entourage while addressing
success of "Mangal Yaan' because it was a success of
India and not of BJP. World would have viewed it that nation
comes always first in India. I am a big fan of Narendra
Modi and feel that he can do no wrong therefore urge him
to take prompt actions in selection of heads of various
institutions be it in PSUs, Universities like he did in

As per convention followed till now, the senior most Member
is appointed as Chairman. This is the first time an outsider
is directly appointed as Chairman.
The appellant asked for the service details of a teacher
regarding her date of joining the service, her present residential
address and her salary certificates, etc. During hearing
before the CIC, the teacher submitted that the information
seeker is her husband who is harassing her. She raised objection
to the disclosure of information to the appellant, saying
that it is her personal information. The CIC held that information
about salary and official address of public servant is public
in nature and shall be disclosed to any person including
spouse. Salary details including deductions contained in
Salary slip or certificate and residential address of the
public servants is personal information, and also third
party information. Only after proof of larger public interest
such information also can be given. Filing of 50 RTI applications
reflects the personal animosity but not public interest.
Cases where spouses are seeking information about each other
are now increasingly coming to notice. They may be involved
in marital disputes and cases both civil and criminal, may
be filed mutually against each other. They can also seek
information to help them to prove or disprove the charges.
However, it must be born in mind that information unconnected
with the discharge of public duties should not be provided
unless the disclosure establishes a larger public interest.
