? Legalised corruption in GOI?


Ministry of DOPT &ARPG is the nodal agency mandated to formulate policies, frame rules and guidelines for conduct of government business particularly in Service matters. Consider the ground realities. There are inconsistencies galore in actual practice. Same set of guidelines are misinterpreted by different ministries to suit their specific requirements. This results in avoidable litigations in the Central Administrative Tribunals (CATs) causing substantial loss to public exchequer running into crores of rupees. No wonder, about 44,000 cases are pending adjudication in seventeen benches of CAT.There is no monitoring or regulatory mechanism in the DOP&T in place to ascertain whether its guidelines are being followed in letters and spirit by different ministries.

The private lawyers and government counsels are the natural beneficiaries of this organized activity. Worse, (in almost) all cases, the GOI on the tutored advice of government counsels and the mandarins of Law ministry, prefer appeals against the judgments of CATs / lower courts etc.The babus also benefit from these nexus with the government counsels. How? It is anybody?s guess . The appointment of thousand of government counsels by Min of Law has all the ingradients of a mega scam. It involves quid pro quo deals. The credentials and success rates of private lawyers are never verified by the Law ministry before appointing them as government counsels.The Law minister must reform his own ministry before advising others.

What to do?There is a felt need to have an effective monitoring/ regulatory agency under the PMO to oversee the ground realities. The DOP&T is headed by the PM as the cabinet minister-in-charge. For facilitating appropriate action, the joint paper needs to be discussed by the Committee of Secretaries (COS).The joint paper could be drafted by getting inputs from all ministries as the corruption is spread across the board. This will be a step towards Good governance.

After learning about the affidavit filed by Sanjiv Bhatt an IPS officer of Gujrat cadre in the Supreme Court on electronic media today I want to salute him for his courage and truthfulness. Only if we had more officers like him , we would nether need any lokpal bill sarkari or Jan Lokpasl bill nor there would be any need for Anna Hazare to go on fast. What we need is officers with courage who can stand up to authorities and take the risk and not those can close their eyes to any type of wrong doing to earn promotion and post retirement employment. Salute to Mr sanjiv Bhatt .

There are examples of officers as Joint Secretary making recommendations in favour of consultancy organisations and then switching sides by joining the same organisation as head of a division. There is a consultancy organisation which regularly does this and has been favored many a times. Not only that ITDC has come out with tender document for selection of JV partner whose submission date is in a day or two and from the eligibility criteria and the haste with which things are being finalised, it is apparent that its a pre decided tender in favor of a particular consultancy organisation.

Dear Shri Krishnan/ Interested,

Absolute truth !

Nexus is very much correctly mentioned.

Today there is no ethical and good governance in the country!

"The private lawyers and government counsels are the natural beneficiaries of this organized activity. Worse, (in almost) all cases, the GOI on the tutored advice of government counsels and the mandarins of Law ministry, prefer appeals against the judgments of CATs / lower courts etc.The babus also benefit from these nexus with the government counsels. How? It is anybody?s guess . The appointment of thousand of government counsels by Min of Law has all the ingradients of a mega scam. It involves quid pro quo deals. The credentials and success rates of private lawyers are never verified by the Law ministry before appointing them as government counsels.The Law minister must reform his own ministry before advising others"

No more words can summarise the prevailing conditions today on litigations in CAT due to the lethargic/ inefficient/ rudderless/ ill- informed/ mediocre functioning of Departments like DOPPW (dealing with Pensioners & their welfare) and DOPT.

There are more than 46 cases of pre 2006 pensioners alone in the last one year due to denial of the CORRECT IMPLEMENTATION OF THE SIXTH CPC RECOS ON MODIFIED PARITY in revising the pre 2006 pensions as per the very much Cabinet Approved/ President sanctioned/ Gazette notified orders.

POOR WORKING KNOWLEDGE OF ENGLISH, LACK OF COMPREHENSION OF SIMPLE "EXPRESSIONS" OF ENGLISH (for eg not knowing the difference between MINIMUMN OF THE PAY BAND from MINIMUM OF THE PAY IN THE PAY BAND), TOTAL IGNORANCE OF FRs/ SRs/ PENSION RULES , REGULATIONS, PROCEDURES; INDIFFERENCE TO THE HON SUPREME COURT JUDGMENTS ON PAST CASES; DISRESPECT TO THE CONSTITUTIONAL PROVISIONS; NOT HEEDING TO THE PEER OPINIONS OF THE HON MINISTERS AND EVEN THE CAG OF INDIA; EVEN FAILING TO FOLLOW THE MEANINGFUL STEPS TAKEN IN SIMILAR SITUATIONS BY STAE GOVTD LIKE PUNJAB, UP, WB,HARYANA AND ALSO JUDICIAL OFFICERS' PAY COMMISSION ETC; PARTIAL TREATMENT TO THE ELITE GROUP IN AN EXPRESS MANNER TO RESOLVE SIMILAR GRIEVANCE ( CREATIN OF S30 SCALE ETC REVISION PENSION ONLY FOR THAT CATEGORY MUCH AFTER SCPC IMPLEMNTATIUON ORDERS ADOPTING A VERY "DEVIOUS ADMINISTRATIVE ROUTE" - ARE THE ACTS/ OMISSIONS/ COMMISSIONS OF DOPPW IN A NUT-SHELL and THESE ARE THE REASONS FOR THE PRE 2006 PENSIONERS' NUMEROUS LITIGATIONS-

Volumes can be written on this topic alone!
