  1. The state government’s ambitious scheme to help micro and small entrepreneurs with loans for seed capital seems to have backfired as it has failed to recover loans. In answer to an RTI query filed by The Indian Express, the Directorate of Industry has revealed that as of 2013-14, the total outstanding amount is more than Rs 127 crore with an average recovery as low as 2.65 per cent Under this scheme, the state government provides seed capital to entrepreneurs as soft loans. Seed money assistance to educated unemployed, district industries centres (DIC) scheme and entrepreneur development training programme are the three components of the scheme.

  3. The Orders of the CIC are as under : The Commission observes that this is a case where file required was either not maintained or lost. The Commission felt that when the respondent authority lost certain records, filing of FIR will not serve any purpose. The authority should come up with policy and action in alternative. The Commission directs the respondent authority to report the same within one month from the date of receipt of this order. The appellant wanted to know the reasons why the file is not traceable. Thus Commission directs the respondent authority to furnish the reason, circumstances behind absence of file and also explain efforts to find same within 15 days from the date of receipt of order.

    SBI transfer policy

    Hello, I am working in SBI since 2007. Somewhere I have heard that there is supreme court directive to mandatorily transfer the employee to parent circle. My question is if Bank doesn't do this, what immediate steps I can have to effect the transfer at the earliest. Regards
  5. The new Email policy has been notified on 19th February, 2015. It is applicable currently to public servants under the Government of India and those States and Union Territories that use the email services of the Government of India. Some elements of the new Email Policy are difficult to understand in the absence of detailed guidelines. For example, para 5.6 of the policy requires that all emails be kept confidential by the users. In the absence of any reference to making emails accessible to a requestor under the provisions of The Information Act, 2005 (RTI Act), Public Information Officers (PIOs) could be confused about which instruction to follow. Of course a mere policy cannot override a statute, but in the absence of detailed guidelines, PIOs may err in favour of secrecy resulting in more litigation before the Central Information Commission. Section 2(f) of the RTI Act, includes emails within the definition of the term- "information". Read more at: Government of India notifies Email policy without ref to RTI - FacenFacts
  6. Bhubaneswar, Feb 26: The state government’s “anti-people policy with regard to RTI” has exposed activists to everyday threats and even made them vulnerable to murder. The concerns come in the wake of the recent attacks on RTI activists in the state. “To get information through RTI on affairs of the Rashtrapati Bhavan or the Central government we do not need to furnish a copy of our ID proof, name of spouse and other personal details. However, unfortunately Orissa is one of the few states where we have to submit our ID proof for getting information through RTI applications,” renowned RTI activist Chitta Behera said. - See more at: Nothing found for Rti Activists Protest Anti People Policy #sthash Xpegd2Lb Dpuf

  9. Hello,y My parents are covered by mediclaim policy of National Insurance Company. In Feb'14 they were admitted to Aryavaidya Sala , Kottakal for treatment.

  10. I was denied a promotion due to changes in the promotion policy of the Army ie it switched from a system of value judgement to that of quantification. In this new policy weightage is given to each achievement of an individual. Now I wish to know the logic/ reason for allotting a particular weightage to a particular achievement. How do I frame my RTI query? Also, can the PIO deny me this information citing defence and security of the country even though promotions and security of the country are unrelated? Lastly, if providing written information is prejudicial to national security than can I opt for inspection of the file notings vide which the policy was perused and approved? I will be grateful if early help is extended.

  12. Railway Minister Lalu Prasad's proud declaration, made while presenting the Railway Budget this February, that Indian Railways (IR) would generate a cash surplus before dividend of Rs 20,000 crore in 2006-07 has turned out to be inflated. An investigation by The Indian Express has revealed that the IR 'earned' Rs 2,690 crore - or 13.3 per cent of the declared surplus (Rs 20,153.49 crore) - not by transporting more people or goods, but by changing its accounting procedures. Replying to a right to information (RTI) application made by The Indian Express, the Railway Ministry has conceded that three accounting policy changes made by IR increased its surplus by Rs 2,689.97 crore in 2006-07. Excluding this amount, the 2006-07 cash surplus would fall to Rs 17,463.5 crore - a smaller increase over the 2005-06 figure of Rs 14,700 crore. While two of these changes got a line in Lalu's Budget speech, the third - the biggest contributor to the Rs 2,689.97 crore swell - didn't even get a mention. Railway Board financial commissioner Sudha Chobe did not respond to an appointment request or a questionnaire sent by us on the accounting changes relating to three entries:- Lease charges payable to IRFC (Rs 1,720.12 crore): IR leases rolling stock from Indian Railways Finance Corporation (IRFC) and pays lease charges. Earlier, IR used to book this amount to its working expenses. From 2005-06, though, it started booking the capital component of lease charges as capital expenditure sourced through a Capital Fund. Simply put, as an asset, rather than an expense. The Comptroller and Auditor General (CAG) of India hasn't agreed to this change. In its 2005-06 report, its latest, CAG said, "The charging of the capital component to revenue was not in order." Further, CAG noted, "Railways needed to appropriate funds to the Capital Fund, from which the capital portion of the lease charges are finally paid, from the surplus available with them." According to the report, the Railways is now considering doing that. Interest on IR fund balances (Rs 660.85 crore): The Finance Ministry pays interest on the closing balance of various IR funds (Depreciation Reserve Fund, Pension Fund, Development Fund and Capital Fund). Earlier, this interest was adjusted to IR funds through the year-end proforma adjustment with the Finance Ministry. From 2006-07, IR decided to first credit the interest income accruing on its fund balances to 'miscellaneous receipts' and subsequently debit an equal amount to the same funds. CAG hasn't agreed to this change either. "If the interest amount is received under miscellaneous receipts, the surplus would be enhanced artificially," says a CAG letter to IR. Losses on strategic lines (Rs 309 crore): The Centre compensates IR for the losses it incurs on strategic lines. Previously, IR used to deduct the compensatory grant from the annual dividend payable by it to the government. However, from 2006-07, IR decided to deduct the compensatory grant from its working expenditure, saying that "the reimbursement of losses should rightly go for reducing the excess expenditure". Simultaneously, it didn't make any deductions from the dividend payable. The Railway Convention Committee, in its latest report, has recommended that IR get CAG's views; CAG is yet to approve this change.

  13. IITs skirt teacher quota policy Institutes claim exemption but ministry gropes for order New Delhi, Dec. 5: The Indian institutes of technology have revealed that they don’t follow the government’s decades-old reservation policy in hiring teachers and claim they were granted exemption from SC/ST and OBC quotas. But the human resource development ministry has told The Telegraph it has no knowledge of any such immunity granted to the IITs. The ministry, however, said it was “ascertaining” whether it ever granted exemption to the premier engineering colleges. “We are examining the case and ascertaining details about whether the IITs were granted exemption from reservation,” Ravi Mathur, the joint secretary in charge of technical institutes at the ministry, said. The government had introduced 22.5 per cent reservation in jobs for Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes following amendments to the Constitution in 1951. Based on the recommendations of the controversial Mandal commission report, the quota was extended by 27 per cent in the early nineties to cover the Other Backward Classes. Although the IITs claim they were exempt from implementing the policy, for over two years now they have been unable to provide the ministry documents required to establish that they had indeed been granted immunity. Responding to a Right to Information query, the IITs admitted they hadn’t received any exemption order from the HRD minister, which, officials said, was essential for not implementing reservation. The IITs cited an office memorandum (OM) No. 9/2/73, dated 23/6/1975, claiming exemption. The OM, issued by the department of personnel and training, allows for exemptions in “scientific and technical institutions” but clearly mentions that the “orders of the minister concerned are required”. An almost identical OM dated 13/5/1994, was also cited by the IITs. But once again, the OM made it clear that the minister’s order was needed. The OM was originally drafted keeping in mind jobs of a strategic nature, such as those in the Department of Atomic Energy or the Bhabha Atomic Research Centre, explained an official at the department of personnel and training. IIT Madras director M.S. Ananth conceded that the decision not to reserve posts for teachers from backward segments was based on IIT “interpretation” of the quota policy rather than on “written” clearance. “We have just an oral understanding, no written communication. The decision is based on our interpretation,” Ananth said. Ananth added that though the IITs don’t follow the reservation policy, people from the Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes are “taken good care of” at the institutes, and often get preference over general candidates if “their academic qualifications are the same”. “Teachers do not teach any one community... they teach everyone. So we cannot risk any dilution of quality,” Ananth said. The “hunt” for an exemption order began two years ago after K. Subbarayan, a CPI Lok Sabha member, asked in Parliament whether the IITs were following the reservation policy when it came to hiring teachers. Junior HRD minister M.A.A. Fatmi’s reply only said “there are faculty members of all communities, including SC/ST, serving” at the IITs. The IITs, however, said in their replies to the RTI applications that they were not implementing reservations for any teaching positions. The applications were filed by Dr Ethirajan Muralidharan, a biomedical engineer, and Dr K.N. Murukes, a member of Parliament from Karur, Tamil Nadu, from 1991 to 1996. “It is ridiculous that the HRD ministry and the IITs cannot sort this out between themselves. And in the meantime, lots of talented people from the SC, ST and OBC categories are losing out on jobs at the IITs,” Murukes said from Tamil Nadu. Muralidharan, who completed his masters and PhD from IIT Madras, applied for a job as a professor six times at his alma mater, but was turned down every time. He has alleged discrimination because he is from the OBC category, a charge the IIT has denied. The IITs, in a letter to the ministry, also alleged that Muralidharan was out to malign them since he was refused a job. The Telegraph - Calcutta : Frontpage
  14. Please Late Me Know The Current Recruitment Policy Of Group D Employee Under Govt. Of Wb?
  15. Privately-held reserved plots that the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) doesn’t acquire even after a decade will revert to the original owner. This recent Supreme Court order has been used by Citispace, a city-based NGO, to file a request under the RTI to ascertain how many plots there are of this kind in the city. “The BMC has no list of the number of privately-owned reserved plots or how many of them have been acquired,” says Nayana Kathpalia, co-convenor, Citispace. Under the 1998 Development Plan (DP), several tracts of privately-owned land across the city were reserved for acquisition by the BMC for the development of public services. These include bus terminals; recreational parks; playgrounds; health clinics as well as for widening of roads. But BMC hasn’t acquired most of them and the owners have begun selling them to developers. Take the 1,500 square metres of land earmarked for a truck terminus at BR Road, Mulund. “The owner has been trying to de-reserve the property as the BMC hadn’t yet acquired it but we have prodded the BMC to initiate acquisition procedures,”saysMulund-resident Mahabir Urf, who has been fighting to save the only open space in the area. Three months ago, residents of Carmichael Road rallied against the owner of a playground in the area who planned to sell the plot to a private developer. “The Carmichael Road instance is not isolated. We have been getting several such complaints from other parts in the city. The BMC says it has no money to acquire these plots but that is no excuse. Many of these plots are being used as playgrounds or open spaces,” adds Kathpalia. The DP stipulates that the BMC has to acquire the reserved plots from their owners at prevailing market rates. However, this hasn’t been the case. “The budget process for acquisition can take up to 8-9 years. Also, there is no specific amount earmarked, so lumpsum payments have to be made to the Special Land Acquisition Officer to buy it,” says Ashok Shintre, chief engineer, Development Plan. Pankaj Joshi of Urban Design Research Institute says, “The DP schemes look great on paper but are irrelevant given the city’s surging population. It was devised in the 1970s and ratified in 1991. Mumbai’s population has shot up by 25 per cent and so has its need for open spaces.” Experts also say that land acquisition procedures are tedious. Moreover, the Transfer of Development Rights isn’t an attractive proposition. “Most prefer to profit by selling the land rather than getting another plot in the suburbs in exchange,” says SS Tinaikar, former Municipal commissioner. The BMC now wants to revise the DP. But the DP gives the BMC no time frame for acquiring the land. “All it says that the property must be developed for some public utility service,” adds Shintre.

  16. I sought from CSIR, supposedly a premier national research organisation, its safety policy for employees. I also asked a few questions on what is the responsibility of CSIR towards the safety of its employees while at work, what is the budget allocated yearwise in the last 5 years and actually spent etc. I get a reply stating that as there is no document/instructions called safety policy in CSIR hence the questions 1-10 are not answered. What should be done when such attitude prevails in socalled elite institutions? Another sad experience is with respect to stores policy. In all CSIR institutions scientists are made to hold the apparatus/instruments/machinery etc as personal inventory. It means that most of the assets of the organisation exist as personal inventory of employees and they are made responsible to that property. CSIR in its accounting policy has a asset depreciation rate table and makes annual finance reports based on depreciated value of the assets. But the stores says there is no depreciation allowed in the stores policy and hence the original price of the asset is the price after any number years of use. If it is not traceable, the employee in whose personal inventory it is listed has responsibility to meet the original price. Can there be a dual policy in the same organisation? Is it not descriminatory? Can this matter be taken for second appeal or will it be treated as an internal policy matter? Baburaok
  17. hello. thanks. There are 40 orndanance factories under, Ordanance factroy board kolkatta.Min of defence (Production).Useually Non gazetted officers and group B gazetted officers are being tranfered within these factory.Up till now the transfers of these categories were on promotion basis And one use to enjoy the right to forgo the promotion if it is uncomfortable to any body to go on transfer. But now the OFB has changed the policy it seems. Now the OFB is useually promoting these cadre in same station. And after convinent time the tranfer list is ordered in existing grades. As such it seems there is no policy or criteria of transfers. there is lot of partiality and irregularities are observed while making these transfers. Some employees are enjoying soft stations more than 3o-35 years. and probably entire there service. And some of them are facing frequent transfers even they are worked in hard stations.Even transfer orders are published.some people manages cancel or postpone them forever by influencing the higher officers.And in this process inocents who had no influence are getting victimies even they have got valid reasons and excuses.I feel it is the same situation of tranfer policy in maharashtra state.for which Honorable Mr. Anna Hazare fought with govt. As there were frouduent behavier from State government official including courruption.The demand for Right to Information Act was uphelded by many people from such episodes.The same situation is developed in central govt organistion. like OFB .If some body wants to know the position of these tranfere orders being excuted factory wise by useing RTI what is the way to get informations. Now for example in some of the factories The employees under transfers have managed to cancel there orders by the way of useing ifluences or manages to postpone the orders years together in the name of Exigency of service. I request the members to understand this issue though i have explained it crudely. And guide me to get information from GMs of Three ordance factories situated in pune and tell me how to proceed. I am Victim of such situaton and When I was tranfered The situation was made such thatwhich enforced me to put up VR. and I am retired person now. thanks you. Hope to receive favourable guidance please.
