Raaj-hath, the Royal Obstinacy

Redevelopment of Central Secretariat complex and Central Vista would mean demolition of Parliament House and other prestigious office buildings including Udyog, Krishi, Nirman, Shastri Bhawans and various ancillary structures Lutyens Zone — an integral part of the history of New Delhi.

In October 2019, CPWD awarded the project to a Gujarat-based company HCP Designs.

The same company had revamped Kashi Vishwanath corridor in Varanasi and the new BJP headquarters in Rouse Avenue Delhi.

All of us have grown watching these elegant buildings

Now, there will be a single triangular composite building to accommodate all ministries.

Security will be compromised by locating all ministries in a single building.  A separate Parliament house will be constructed. Work will start in May 2020 and completed in 2024.

The new structures will rob the area of much of its heritage importance. Public was not consulted despite being the largest stake-holders. Sheer waste of public resources that could be diverted to strengthen existing infrastructures.

There will be utter chaos ,dislocation during the period of construction roads, clogging with traffic congestions during the three years period of construction.

PM Modi is hell-bent on undertaking the project, come what may.

An instance of Raajhath, the Royal Obstinacy. A One-man show.

Disclosure of personal information by IIM, Ahmedabad

The appellant requested for information regarding Prof. Dheeraj Sharma’s recruitment in IIM, Ahmedabad including the academic background and documentary evidences of the same. The PIO submitted that whatever information was available was provided to the appellant. The appellant requested for inspection of the relevant documents. The CIC observed that the information sought by the appellant was regarding a third person namely Prof. Dheeraj Sharma which is purely in the nature of personal information of a third party and thus exempted from disclosure u/s 8(1)(j) of the RTI Act. The CIC cautioned the PIO to remain careful while handling the RTI applications and ensure that such kind of mistakes do not occur in future.


Disclosure of third party information without giving a third party notice indicates the pathetic level of knowledge of the provisions of the RTI Act, 2005. IIM, Ahmedabad, being the premier management institute of the country, is expected to set example in all fields. The irreparable loss caused to the third party by the disclosure of information which is beyond the scope of the RTI Act cannot be undone.
