Who to follow...

I'm  in Dubai ....meet my school friend ...who is a Businessman...at a Cafe in The Burjuman Mall... over Americano Coffees and Baklavas we get chatting.

Me: You left India in 2016.. I know you felt that for expanding your Business  Dubai was the right place....

Friend: Still love my India...yes I felt Dubai was more suitable for my type of Business....my expansion plans.. for Commodities this is a fantastic place...

M: I asked you this question as a new Fib is being circulated... that in 2016 4000....and in 2017 7000 millionaires left India...the aim being to hit Ease of doing Business in India..

F: Nothing of the sort....why the other day I was reading that there are 245000 millionaires in India as of today...figure is expected to rise to 375000 by 2022...which means average of 30000 millionaires added every year..very healthy...

M: If you ask me the lot for who Modi's made it... difficult to do business...the businesses that thrive on 2 number...must be moving out..

F: Ha ha... I think Dubai would be getting a big share of these types..

M: Another fib ...document at the Congress Plenary aka Penury...on Agriculture, Employment and Poverty Allievation...says the wealth of richest 1% has gone up by 73% and bottom half of India's population gone up by just 1%..

F: Go on..

M: A document by Credit Suisse Wealth Data Books say from 2014 to 2017 wealth of 1% richest shrank...while it had increased during 2010-2014. In 2010, the share of the top 1% in the wealth of India was 40.3% , which increased to 49.0% in 2014 and then decreased to 45.1% in 2017. Thus, it goes to show that the rich had actually a better time during the rule of the Congress party, though the party is trying to paint Modi government as pro-rich. Furthermore, the share of wealth of the top 5% and 10% had increased during UPA-2 as well but decreased during the rule of the Modi government. Also, the wealth of the bottom 90%, which had a negative Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 3.75% during UPA-2, has grown at the rate of 12.43 CAGR since Modi came to power in 2014.

F: Gupp maarna comes naturally to Congress and they have the gall to call Modi Jumla Man.

M: So Congress back to what it does best.... divide... Gujarat it's the Patidars... in Haryana it's the Jats...in Maharashtra its the Marathas and now in Karnataka its the Lingayats.

F: So with his pen the CM of Karnataka creates a religion...

M: Though it could be an incomplete exercise as they say the recommendation states that Lingayats would not get Special Benefits or Minority Status...

F: Like Baklawa without ghee and sugar....what use is the seperate religion then to the Lingayats...

M: And the real funny part is just a day before this announcement RaGa was saying Congress works to uniting India...hypocrisy...

F: Actually just breaking Hindu votes to create Vote Banks for itself... why at one time this dolt Siddha wanted a seperate flag for Karnataka...

M: There is a saying by a Roman...ironically..... "When a bunch of known corrupt people go after one man and spare no effort to ridicule, blackmail and attempt to assasinate his character...blindly follow that one man"


My friend flashes Modi's pic on his Mobile Home Screen and gives a thumbs up. He settles the tab and we move out.

Passenger Traffic in Indian Railways - a loosing proposition

Why govt is not taking action against corrupted, falsified age affidavit holders who occupied top slots of govt, CPSE, PESB, UPSC, investigating agencies. These guys continued from UPA to NDA.Will PM take a note of It.. It is the need of hour. otherwise people will lose faith in Govt..



CGHS stops giving medicines from counter

CGHS has stopped giving medicines over their counter and all medicines have to be indented. The CGHS authorities do not have an idea as what trouble a pensioner has to go through if the medicines are not available in the Dispensary and they are indented everytime. This is nothing but harrasment to pensioners as they are required to go the dispensaries twice or thrice just to get their medicines which I am sure when the serving bureaucrats retire, will feel the pinch.Since now the shoe is on the other foot they just don't care. I hope better sense prevails at the earliest so that pensioners will feel relieved.

Data with RTI

Show cause notice for delay in providing the information

IThe complainant sought attested copies of his answer book, some confidential documents and other related information. The CIC noted that the RTI application was received on 03.01.2014 and it was transferred to the Electrical department on 16.01.2014. The evaluated answer sheets were in the custody of the Electrical Department and the same were provided by PIO (Electrical) finally on 18.06.2015. The custodian of the confidential documents was the gazetted section and the Electrical Department and both were asked to furnish the requisite information but the delay occurred due to their non-performance in furnishing the sought for information to the personnel branch. The CIC observed that complete information had since been furnished to the applicant but the delay in furnishing the requisite information was due to wrong return of the transferred RTI application by the PIO (Electrical) and due to the time taken for collecting details from gazetted section which was the custodian of the relevant records. The CIC directed them to submit an explanation for the resultant delays of 14 months and 17 months respectively for furnishing the requisite information at the next date of hearing before it which is scheduled on 04.04.2018 at 04.45 PM.


In case of any malafide denial of information, a penalty of Rs 250/- per day extending to a maximum of Rs 25,000/- may be imposed on the PIO under the provisions of the RTI Act. The onus that the denial of information has been in good faith lies on the PIO.
