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 paralysis.


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, others

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 Banks.

Personal information of a government employee

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.
