Appointment to new Delhi C.P.
It seems that the Government's discretionary decision to appoint YS Dadwal as Delhi CP does not suits Kiran Bedi, who finds herself most suitable candidate for this job. Her behaviour on news channels, clearly showing defiance to the Government, was not expected from an officer of such senior level. She should remain in her limits and understand her responsibilities. She is already holding the rank of DG, BPR&D which is equivalent to Delhi CP. So there is no question of her suppression, as alleged. Her irresponsible attitude makes Government's decision more wise by not selecting her for the sensitive post. Some other women organisations are linking it with women's right, which is totally irrelevant and not sustainable in sensitive service matters. Ms. Bedi is believing in the phenomenon that if the Government keeps her happy, she will keep quite otherwise start crying through the media.

Country needs stuff like Kiran Bedi
I know neither Kiran Bedi nor YS Dadwal, to be able to informatively
comment on their professional capability, or the formers' supercession
for the post of DGP Delhi, and the latters acceptance by the Government.
I'm given to understand that Kiran Bedi lost out because she is outspoken
& not pliable!! But hasn't she been like this all through her career!
Indeed, that is the stuff the country needs now - not spine benders!!

It is disappointing
It is very disappointing and outrageous
It is very disappointing and outrageous. A very bright and straight forward officer and above all a women officer with caliber/merit was treated like an outcast. This kind of treatment makes an average Indian's head down with shame.
An injustice towards a competent but not adjustable women officer at this stage will invite criticism from all corners. Are the uniformed forces all male bastion?

It is time that the IRS learn to take responsibility
But Mrinal forgets that the Placement Committee is headed by the Chairman, Member (Personnel) and two other Members of the Board besides the JS as Member-Secretary. So suspicious are the Chairman and the three Members of the non-IAS member of the Placement Committee that they personally check each and every detail of each and every officer before taking a decision. In fact if the data base is seen it would show calculations worked out by the Chairman and the Members in their own handwriting especially in important and marginal cases. It is unfortunate indeed that the non-IRS have always been criticized when the real decisions (including the twists in the interpretation of the Transfer Policy) have always been taken by the Chairman and IRS Members of the Board. In fact, the anomalies in the transfers occur not because of wrong details or the called twists in interpretations but because the Chairman and IRS Members of the Board are ones who, given the short tenures that they are there for, are keen only on helping their own favourites or people from their own region. It is they who have always given twists to whatever leverage the Policy provides - the 'compassionate grounds being the most prominent one. It is time that the IRS learn to take responsibility for their own actions and decisions and not keep looking to blame others.
As for Sandeep's remarks, if the FM is not in favour of an IAS man as JS to look after the IRS cadre, how come the IRS could not get their own man on the post even after the last incumbent clearly argued on file that the post is best manned by an IRS officer? Why the file was kept pending for months even when the IRS key functionaries were allowed full access to it? And, where has the file vanished?
Not correct about LBSNAA
Quality of probationers going down
Well, with all due respect to the young 2002 batch officer, the fact remains that quality of probationers is going down in the recent batches. More Officers are seeking pastures that used to be taboo at one time!! Focus on ethics and values is going down and new officers are showing more practical attitude leading to overall fall in standards. Who is to blame is anyones guess?
Not correct to blame non-IAS Trainers in LBSNAA
This is regarding the Non IAS trainers at LBSNAA. It may be a sort of ignorance to many who say that standard has decreased due to non IAS there. There always have been few members of Allied services to provide salt and pepper to the food with their varied experiences. In 2002 an IRPS officer was the incharge of discipline there, which is not an easy job. Dalal, IPS, was a favourite of the lot. Actually, we should not forget that LBSNAA is also holding the FC course which is a generalised one for all kinds of services and above all it also holds various kinds of courses like Civil Military liaison conference, courses for various departments and also research work in the field of government policies(LBSNAA is under DoPT). Therefore, to have few officers of other cadres will always augment its competency.
IES and ISS should be in main stream of decision process

statistics Indian Economic Service (IES) and Indian Statistical Service

is really redundant,(whatever may be the reasons) and hence should be
Moorthy knows nothing about the work profile of IES
Sarvesh Moorthy's observation that IES Officer are doing only Secretarial
jobs are unfounded and irrational. He seems to know nothing about the
work profile of IES Officers. Let me ask him back some small questions

About-CBDT and CBEC
With reference to comments on CBDT/CBEC, I have to say the following
Commissioners orders still awaited
The Hon'ble Prime Minster has approved the names of 30 IRS Officers for promotion to Commissioner of Income Tax , almost 15 days back. However, the Ministry of Finance , it appears, does not give too much importance to the Prime Minister as the promotion orders of the officers have still not been effected.
Retirement age should be raised
Retirement age of Central Government employees needs to be raised to 62 years. This will help the Government save the money for at least two years which otherwise it would have release to its retiring employees.
With so many Rights Commissions, high time we had one DUTY commission as well.
