Whispersinthecorridors

What people say about us !

Dr Saheb your contribution is exemplary. You were the first to innovate a special space in the internet media. You have been singularly responsible for predicting the unpredictable, when you won accolades across the country. Your genius in structuring the Whispers in the corridors magazine has been spectacular. Your missionary zeal in creating an extraordinary power in the Whispers corridors is a masterstroke. You have set an example for younger & older generation that how successfully any startup can be taken to Himalayan heights. Your simplicity, high integrity, innovative mind has made you an accomplished achiever.  Had you got support of the powers that you would have further revolutionized the Media spectrum? With a sense of great pride I wish you the very best. Regards.

Hard Luck....

Back in sweltering Delhi and my friend who works for a Foreign Policy Think Tank drops in for a chat. Over Muffins and Cold Coffees we get chatting.

 

Me: Really surprised by what Ms. Christine Lagarde....Head of IMF... has said..

Friend: Yes odd... because people in such positions don't reveal personal conversations..

M: Funny ... for her to expect at Davos that  PM Modi would  expound on what he's doing for empowering and protecting Women...

F: Sounds less like the Head of IMF and more like a Women's Lib activist..

M: And in my opinion...seems she's relied on what  a  Indian Economist and a Indian Origin Economist have written or informed her..

F: Absolutely...so the info she's got is totally biased....very improper for her to have said what all she has said...

M: Back home some Lawyer.... Journos are up in arms against the SC's Justice Loya Investigation verdict..

F: All you have to do is check their political affiliations...

M: So now the Impeachment move is back on the burner...

F: Just another hue and cry creating ploy... they know they don't have the numbers...2/3rd Majority required.... such moves are gross misuse of Democracy...I think Chairman RS will strike it down...

M: I hear MMS... PC.... Kursheed....Singhvi

 

.....Moiley....PC....Didi and DMK  had not signed the Petition in the first instance....and have not done so now too..

F: Its not about the numbers...its about creating a issue... whereby its freindly Media gets to spread canards...and they get to mouth sheer lies..if Chairman of RS rejects the Motion  Congress and others would go to SC... and demand CJI recuse himself from hearing this Case...

 

M: In fact could be their ultimate goal is CJI recuses himself from hearing Babri case...

 

anyway...disagreement with CJI on a judgement cannot be grounds for Impeachment....

 

F: Congress and friends have amply shown they don't trust..CJI... SC... EC.... EVMs...RBI... PMO... Official Economical Parameters...proverbial Disbelievers...

M: Loss in 2019 and there will be disbelief in Congress's ranks about the Leadership of Congress...

F: The same SC has given them relief in so many cases ... favorable verdicts... why the very same SC quashed the Sukanya case against RaGa....

M: Reminds me... Congress holds candle marches against rape... and at these very marches Females are molested....

F: Now the same lot who are questioning Justice Loya verdict are questioning HC's verdict in the Kodnani case..

M: Not a word from them...then and now..on Congress perpetrators of 1984 Genocide... at least Kodnani's case has reached HC... 1984 cases if not already closed...floundering  in Lower Courts ...still in evidentiary  stages!!

M: And now Kodnani acquital will be tested in SC....they need to check out the statistics of Lower Courts pronouncing guilty judgements...only to be struck down by HC ... 

F: See when Kodnani or Col Purohit or Sadhvi Pragya were allegedly  fixed by Congress.... BJP did not blame the Courts....it blamed Congress and Congis...and the Judgements had to be tested ....and results are for all to see..

M: Why even Sikhs did not blame Courts... blamed Congis and Congress..

F: Its lucky to have a patriotic and ethical adversary... so Congress is very lucky to have BJP as an adversary....however BJP is extremely unlucky to have Congress as an adversary..hard luck BJP...

Cash Crunch

Hyped by media houses there is no such cash crunch in the country today.  Only few people know about this adverse publicity.

Visa free entry

As reported in Whispers, soon Indian Diplomatic Passport holders will be allowed visa free entry to UK. Other countries try to gain ease of access for their businesspersons; it is they who bring prosperity to their country. Indian diplomats try to get visa-free entry for diplomatic passport holders and they have succeeded in many countries. All officers of Government of India in level 14 and above (there are thousands of them) and their families are entitled to diplomatic passports. Retired IFS officers (all regular recruits retire at the level of Secretary to Government of India) and their spouses are entitled to Diplomatic Passport for life. In addition influential non-officials are issued Diplomatic Passports under a discretionary quota with the Minister of External Affairs. Indian diplomatic missions abroad, drowned in protocol and alcohol, need to change their attitude towards promoting business and aim for visa free entry (or at least e-visa facility) for ordinary passport holders. Most readers of Whispers are senior Government officers; their self serving approach is not good for economic development of the country.

Data with RTI

Information regarding the assets disclosed by officers

The Appellant sought information regarding the assets disclosed by officers and staff in a certain Income Tax office, copy of the proactive disclosure made under section 4 (1) (b) of the RTI Act in Telugu Language and The IT Act in Tamil language. The PIO informed that the Act had not been printed in Telugu Language. The CIC ruled that the information with respect to the assets and liabilities of an employee qualifies as personal information within the meaning of Section 8(1)(j) of the Act. The Commission advised the Respondent to consider publishing the aforesaid information in Telugu Language for the benefit of the Public at large.

 

Comments

Many judicial fora have ruled that the information with respect to the assets and liabilities of an employee, which he discloses to his employer in compliance of the Service Rules applicable to him qualifies as personal information within the meaning of Section 8(1)(j) of the Act and such information cannot be directed to be disclosed unless the PIO is satisfied that larger public interest justifies disclosure of such information.
