Middle path by K.M.Chandrasekkhar
The new Cabinet Secretary K.M.Chandrasekhar seems to be following the middle path i.e. "neither too fast, nor slow." This is evident from the fact that unlike his predecessors he reaches office by 9 am daily. His immediate predecessor B.K.Chaturvedi never reached the office before 10 am. On the other hand Kamal Pande from whom Chaturvedi had taken over used to reach the office by 8 a.m.

This is Rajasthan where CR,s are spoiled
To what extent is the CR of IAS officials in Vasundhara Raje Scindia's Rajasthan is spoiled can be gauged from the fact that the officials of the state have not been empanelled in the GoI. Also, there are only 11 IAS officials from Rajasthan in the GoI as against the sanctioned deputation quota of 45.

Row over colour vehicles between MCGM & Army
A row between Municipal Corporation of Greater Mumbai (MCGM) and the Indian Army over colour of vehicles being used for disposal of solid waste in Mumbai has cropped up. Work of disposing off the waste has been outsourced to a private agency which is using olive colour painted vehicles. Objection of the Army is that since Army vehicles are of this colour so there was every possibility of vehicles meant for transporting solid waste could be used by anti social elements or terrorists for intruding into defence establishments.

Indian nuclear scientists have written to Indian President Dr.A.P.J.Kalam seeking his intervention in the proposed 123 Agreement.

Innovative habitat scheme by Bhopal civic body
A very unique & innovative scheme for slum dwellers of Bhopal has been started Bhopal Municipal Corporation(BMC) of which Mayor is Sunil Sood .Under the scheme which is being carried out as part of the Jawaharlal Nehru National Urban Renewal Mission (JNNURM) is witnessing community participation in Madhya Pradesh's capital city of Bhopal. According BMC Commissioner Manish Singh slum dwellers are being given free of cost newly constructed houses. Explaining the concept Singh said that slum dwellers are shifted from their existing land so that pucca houses could be built. Construction is being under their supervision, said Manish Singh adding other facilities like a community hall, a school proper sanitation besides a hospital will also be provided to inhabitants. Initially over 2200 houses with a room, kitchen, lat bath & a balcony are being constructed, informed Manish Singh.The JNNURM was launched in Bhopal by Congress chief Mrs.Sonia Gandhi on July 3,2006.
Why people leave army ?
While Karthikeya is entitled to his view point, greed (hunger for money) can hardly be the motivation for professionals to leave the Army. Perks, hardly any in actual substance, are more for supporting officers in their tasks, since they are 99% deployed in remote areas.
One of the major reasons for Karthikeya's (and perhaps many others like him) skewed perception of the military is, and has been, the non-accessibility of military stations to the general public and what they see in peace stations - only one tenure in four happens to be in a peace station for most units!!! The public therefore only sees peripheral activities, that of a very miniscule portion of the Army, and forms its opinion - they do not see the toughness or the hardship that Army officers, JCOs and men face in general - a posting move every two years, living in non-family stations (separation for children), lack of continuous education, 24x7 deployment, hardship & danger (including very strong challenges in Counter Insurgency) are just a few of the issues that may have escaped Karthikeya. Compare these with the stability of life in the civil.
I would recommend him to contact some Army friend of his, and visit J&K, the East, Kargil, or other areas where 90% of the Army is, to see life as it actually is. The fault in not sensitising the public of the difficult life of the Army is ours, and not that of the public; if their perceptions are awry their reasons are valid.
Army soldiers stand deployed as of this moment in temperature ranges of +50 degrees Centigrade (in Rajasthan) to -25 degrees Centigrade in Siachen - this beats the hardships faced by any Army in the world.
Maj Gen KS Sindhu, VSM (Retd )
I think nobody can grudge anything to defence officers. Their perks (which are quite commonplace nowadays in government, public and private sectors) and pay are no better than anyone else, their promotions are slower, the parity with the civil service is shameful, weeding out at young ages takes a toll, the working conditions that they endure, be it desert heat or glacial environs, or dense forests, all under hostile fire, often away from their families and loved ones; and above all, the call to duty that they answer with their lives, all these factors can not be lost sight of. Why is it that nobody is staging dharnas and morchas for reservations in the army? It kills, that is why.
Major Rajendra Singh
Private sector people are great motivators
It was reported-Civil servants are lobbying that their pay and perks must match what is available in the private sector. Those critical of the Civil Servants are scoffing at this preposterous demand. Those in IAS,IPS and other Central Services continue to live with the pre-independence mindset, always disdainful and condescending towards their junior collegues from subordinate services. Those in the private sector are just the reverse. They are great motivators ,inspiring team leaders and communicators par excellence says a wag, the bigwigs must first change their working ways before they ask for the moon that shines over the private sector.
If the salaries of Civil Servants are kept low then quality of intake will suffer as well as problems of retention of good staff will be more severe. Every problem can not be solved by reserving posts for selected or privileged few.
IRS should learn to say "NO"
It seems reporting to junior officers of IAS and IFS is in blood of IRS officers. Even chairman of CBDT, a 70 batch officers of IRS is reporting to 1973 batch IAS officers. For self respect, IRS has to learn to say NO for reporting to junior officers of other services and should not fight among themselves for reporting to a junior officers of other services.
No service is good or bad
I fully agree with the views expressed by Samir Chaturvedi that no service is good or bad. These are the individuals/incumbents who man the service and those who run the show. What we need is performance oriented civil service, uniformity in pay scales (lesser No of pay scales) in whole of India. Time has come IAS domination and corruption must go from India. Professionalization and specialization in service must be inducted. Security of job must go. Those who deliver may stay others may go. A hire and fire policy as in America. Permanency in the Government job must go. Time scale for those who really deliver, others must quit. As of today more you are corrupt, more you are close to politicians and more you prosper.
Harish Kumar Satija
Yes Government officials deserve a pay raise
Well Government officials deserve a pay raise.. What people are forgetting is that the nation is losing out the best to priavte sector as the the top minds are lured by fat pays. All of us have a duty towards the nation and if fatter pay ensures better governance, we shouldn't be opposed to it.
Pak army has a country
The Pak Army controls the country whether the Government is run by politicians or Army Generals. It is said that other countries have armies whereas Pak army has a country.
This kind of debate should be stopped
The IAS will always remain what it is for a long time in this country Whether all these people like it or not! As recommended by several others; this senseless, unproductive and nauseating debate should now be stopped immediately.
