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.

Jhoote ka mooh kaala

 

RaGa's adopted jhoot as his model!

Jhoot ko karr raha hai mollycoddle!!

 

Like his promising Amethi electorate!

Will do so much that Amethi as Singapore you will rate!

 

That's a different issue that during 10 years of Ma's Raaj!

Development rahaa Amethi se naraaj!

 

Give him Singapore and he'll make it into Amethi in 2 days!!

In hell Lion City residents would stay!!

 

School girls asked him couple of questions!

And all he gave them was suggestions!

 

Ask Modi or ask Yogi as they run Nation and State!!

As questions were out of syllabus so met this fate!

 

Then he says cash crunch because Nirav ran away with money!!!

Any sane person would find his answers funny!!

 

He thinks what he says sticks in Public's mind!!

He literally kicks truth and logic in the hind!!

 

 

 

We hear what he says!!

 

Laugh and go our ways!!

 

As it is his credibility is low and it goes lower!!

In 2019 iss ka game will be over!!

 

Cash shortage because of New Years and Harvesting Season!

Karnataka election could also be a reason!!

 

 

 

In April ATM cash withdrawal 5.2 times of usual rate!!

 

Highest withdrawal rate to date!!

 

 

It'll normalize in max a week!!

Already achieved its peek!!

 

Now will ebb and situation will improve!!

As currency gets into its groove!

 

Then RaGa says let me talk 15 minutes in Lok Sabha!

And on Modi all will do hai tauba!!

 

Fact is if Modi just lets out some skeletons from their Cupboard!

Next flight to Italy they'll board!

 

No semen in balloons and no beef in Junaid's lynching!!

On both those alleging are now flinching!!

 

No Saffron in Mecca Masjid blast!!!

But RaGa is conveniently  forgetting the past!!

 

He had coined Hindu Terror for a Diplomat of USA!!

Abh Jhoota ji bollte hai this I did not say!!

 

Enumerating discrediting attempts that flopped!!

All discrediting balloons apne aap have popped!!

 

Intolerance, Award Wapsi, Church attacks and Leather Bag!

Were pulled out of Dirty Tricks bag!

 

Then Dalit atrocities , Ishrat, Modi suit cost and Qadri !

Nun rape, Vemula, JNU Condom count and Dadri!

 

FTII, JNU protests, Wani, Lynching of Junaid over beef!

Intolerance, Meat Ban and Semen balloons... in brief!

 

Like a factory churning out material to slander!!!

As 2019 approaches more  products on orders of demander!

 

Confucius says... Lets see jhoote ka hotha hai boll baala!

Ya Voter karta hai inn ka mooh kaala!!

Plight of early retirees of PSUs

"I wish our PM Narendra Modi to kindly look into the plight of Retirees of PSUs. Many of them of Ratna PSUs have contributed to exchequer substantially. This would not have been possible without dedicated & hard work of employees at all levels of such PSUs. But many major PSUs like SAIL have not implemented Pension Scheme under the false statement that they are not earning profit. If Public Sector Banks can be infused with crores of funds, can Govt not infuse some funds (out of contributions received from PSUs received earlier-such as Dividend, Excise Duty, Sales Tax etc)?

Pre-2007 retirees of PSUs are in worst condition. Their salary structure was very low. The gratuity was only Rs.3.5 lakhs from 1997.They have to survive with interest returns from the retirement benefits received which is dwindling down whereas cost of living is going up - a double hardship.

The condition of pre-1997 retirees of PSUs are very deplorable. They are in 75 plus, 80 plus age group. They face lot of hardship in all directions. Their health costs have gone multiple times due to age related problems. Their retirement benefits were mere in the range of Rs.5 lakhs-8 lakhs. How can any one expect them to survive? These are the persons who had joined ar earlier stages of PSUs-during 1950s & 1960s- in the 1st phase of Industrialisation concept as conceived by Pandit Nehru. We would not have been in such a industrially developed stage if not for this strong foundation. Do any of the higher ups know or realise the problems or hardship faced by the earlier retirees who worked in undeveloped/under-developed areas where such industries were established with foreign collaboration. I request PM to arrange to pay them atleast Rs. 10,000 pm so that they survive. After all, PSUs are only another arm of Govt & this amount is a pittance compared to all retirees get."

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.
