Department with majority
of Women Officers
The Department of Expenditure of Government of
India has majority of Women Officers. It is not efficiency alone, but a prudent
and conscious choice by our Harvard Educated Finance Minister Thiru Chidambaram.
Expenditure is Ms. Sushma Nath (1974 MP). Additional Secretary is Ms Rita Pillai
(1975 UP); Additional Secretary (Budget) who also works closely with Secretary
Expenditure is Ms Loretta Vas (1977 UP); two out of three Joint Secretaries are
women, Ms Meena Agrawal (IRAS) and Ms Madhulika Prasad Sukul (IDAS); the third
JS Ms V S Senthil (Kerala 1984) may soon move to Washington DC hopefully making
way for another women officer !
And the Deputy Secretary and Director level
officers: Dakshia Das (IRAS), Jyotsna Verma Ray (1992 Jharkhand) Anuradha Mitra
(IDAS), Renu Jain, Bina Bahri, Babni Lal (IES), Reema Prakash, Dr Anuradha Balaram
(IES), and Parma Sen (IA&AS).
Even the new Director in Finance Wing of
Ministry of Finance is Rosy Sharma who replaced Dr Prafulla Kerketta.
of entrusting safety of expenditure at home to our mothers / sisters / wives is
replicated in Government of India also. That the Secretary Ms Sushma Nath, AS
Ms Rita Pillai, AS Ms Loretta Vas, and JS Ms Meena Agrawal can speak Tamil is
a mere coincidence.

Increase of Retirement age - 'NO'
If the whispers on this portal are
to be believed, the file regarding increase in retirement age is pending with
PM. May God give our PM the wisdom (for which he is known) to act according to
his super ability - and not to get pressurized by his 'supporters' and self-centered
bureaucrats. On the one hand Government is making all efforts to cut down wasteful
expenditure in Government departments and cutting down posts at lower level and
then such proposals attract peoples' popularity on the other. Is there somebody
who has the answer as to where the younger generation will go? If the government
servants at 60 feel that they still can work then why don't they seek employments
somewhere else and vacate the posts for others. There are enough opportunities
for capable officers to branch out to MNCs or elsewhere at any time. Then why
these officers want to stick to government offices. Their apprehension is understandable
- if they go to some MNCs they have to show their efficiency/productions to their
employers unlike in government offices where they are accountable to none. Most
of our officers misfit in other organizations for obvious reasons. Hon'ble CPC
has categorically stated that the age of retirement may be maintained at the present
level. In fact, the retirement age may be reduced to 58 so that young blood comes
in the government sector to improve the 'tarnished image' of bureaucracy in India.
PM should be bold enough to say 'NO' to increase in retirement age.
The 6th Pay Commission has made it clear with justification
that increasing the date of retirement to 62 is not a healthy sign. If they wish
to increase then the Government should instead of raising the retirement age,
it should make it as till death, so that the Government need not to given pensionary
benefit to any.
Dr S K Sharma
What is this retirement age ?
is this Retirement Age. Earlier 58 itself was correct. A blunder was committed
by making it 60 as it has reaped "0"percent result; only because employees
beyond 50 years and that too in stenography line are not able to stay late or
take dictation from very senior officers for which these posts of Sr.PPS/PPS was
created. Ultimately the lower staff who have been rubbed for more that 20 years
in the same grade is again exposed and exploited without any renumeration. These
officers do not realise this and they pretend as if they are not aware of this.
At present, the UDCs/Assistants/PAs/Steno'D" are already suffering because
of stagnation. With the introduction of Non-Functional Scale; though the SOs and
PS were benefitted; we the UDCs/Assistants; PAs and Steno'D" have been left
high and dry and exposed only for doing the work and staying late in office. Therefore;
in the interest of the employees; at least to prevent further exploitation; this
retirement age should not be increased. By doing so; the government will be only
paying more salary to these persons for another two years and apart from this
they will also get increased pension and other benefits free of cost and that
too at the expense of juniors. It would be better if the higher officials use
their brains on this issue rather than simply talking in favour of this.
favour to raise retirement age ?
Why there is so much favour for increasing
age of retirement. If these old employees are so much efficient and knowledgeable,
they shall definitely get some other jobs why to put break on employment opportunity
of young and efficient . These young persons shall be cheaper also since they
shall be inducted at entry level whereas all these persons at age of 60 are drawing
huge salary with minimum level of efficiency.
This is with reference to Raghurane's comments on CBDT orders. Utopia
may be the proper word to describe his optimism. Transparency and CBDT are antithetical
to each other. Orders may be transparent in arbitrariness and favoritism which
will be evident per se . Transfer policy has always been observed in violation
only and in bureaucratic system no one dares to divert from the laid down path.
Why the present (mis/dis)placement committee will be different, after all they
have been waiting for long for this opportunity to come. Will they allow it to
go waste just for the sake of sheer optimism shown by Raguranee and his likes.
Why orders have not come till now, it is not very difficult to understand. The
simple reason is affording adequate opportunity to everybody so that one does
not complain later on. CBDT has already circulated officially the manner in which
it is to be approached for seeking transfer that is not through meeting in the
office. The message was loud and clear ,meeting in office with a mere representation
in hand is waste of time for both. Approach in the leisure of home, club, golf
course etc. etc... After transfer orders are issued, you will say Sir, "Sahi
kah Raha tha"
baseless comaprison with regard to comaprison of career prospects needing equitable
proprtion with CSS is loughable.The nature of job assigned to CSSS vis- a- vis
CSS is totally different in terms of element, quality& workload & in its
essence. CSS has the basic work to carry out like examination of cases on varying
matters almost every allocation of business in Government of India at the primary
stage to middle rung level with great deal of application of mind, formulation
of plan projects on plan to basis, complete knowledge of financial & budgetary
matters, implementation of each guidelines, its monitoring and appraisal and all
sorts of parliamentary matter work. On the other hand, CSSS has merely to discharge
duties of stenography/dictation & taking care the personal matters of his/her
boss in order to facilitate smooth discharge of his duties, which don't require
great deal of application of mind except bit of promptness and sincerity. It is
sad affair that DOPT & concerned Department has not appreciated the contributions
rendered by the CSS till now. As the General needs proper nurturing of front level
soldiers to safe guard the territory effectively so is CSS needs a proper career
prospects more than any other cadre who are posted in the central secretariat.
It seems that intention of DOPT that right mix of officers managed through central
staffing scheme up to Joint secretary level has not rendered any visible difference
in speedy delivery of service & quality output. However, this has caused demoralisation
of CSS cadre. Since has the inherent flair of discharge the duties in consonance
with proper manual procedure and as per existing parameters, the chances of any
deviation and disregard of rules has rare possibility. Given the proper career
prospects and time to time quality training CSS can be an icon of responsive administrative
establishment in the central secretariat.
A CSS Well wisher
not publish such comments
He may please be informed that Reservations were
introduced in the 90s and the officer he has referred to was recruited much earlier,
in the so-called 'merit-alone' period. His praise for the police dogs is welcome.
He may also understand the fact that India has developed more after 1990s (after
introduction of reservations in India, than it did before (when the higher castes
were ruling the roost). Privatisation was possible only because we had many first-generation
bureaucrats, thanks to the reservations. Moreover, Merit in CSE is a myth. A person
who secures very high rank to get even IAS/IPS fails in the Prelims next year.
Does it mean that he has lost his merit. Similarly, many people get their services
in second or third attempt. Does it mean that they were unfit earlier and suddenly
have attained Merit? It all depends to a great extent on the facilities available,
as well. Those in Delhi get access to many Private Coaching Centers and this is
not the case in Patna. So, a person who gets say, 200th rank, studying from Patna
is definitely superior in my view to the son of a Civil Servant in Delhi who attends
coaching centers and spends thousands of rupees to get 150th rank. So, let us
not get carried away by the myth of merit. It would be proper on the part of the
website to avoid publishing such comments, where someone writes with no application
of mind, just because he has access to internet and your site.
J K Yadav
agree with Saxena
I fully agree with the views of Saxena with reference
to the remarks made by Chauhan. I think that Chauhan has never focused his concentration
towards the officers and staff members working in the Govt. Offices beyond office
hours and most likely up to at least 8 PM, attending offices on closed days also.
About 10-20% officers/staff in the Government work for about 10 Hrs/day.
The agitation by Gujjar community of Rajasthan seeking ST status
has sharply highlighted duplicity of political class. For purposes of getting
votes and coming to power they will promise anything and everything. Once in power
political class will not hesitate to open firepower to kill and maim those demanding
what was promised to them. Making promises without any intention of delivering
on them is most cruel joke that can be played on the people of India especially
at a time when job opportunities are rapidly shrinking except for secretary rank
post retirement jobs. Asking for increase in retirement age when poor young people
are getting killed not for getting jobs but simply for getting ST status to marginally
improve their chances of finding govt. jobs. No one seems to be bothered about
overhauling the education system which churns out highly qualified and skilled
job seekers with almost nil entrepreneurial skills. How is it that majority of
IITians and MBAs want highly paid jobs preferably with MNCs but very few want
to set up their own enterprise which will create atleast few jobs.( Of course
inspector raj is so powerful that demands of bribe will drive many young entrepreneurs
away into seeking government jobs.
Surprisingly, how come there was hardly
any post on Gujjars agitation which has claimed 42 lives or even more during last
few days but many posts on pay raise , increase in retirement age etc.. Is it
because of notice served on Abhinav Kumar that no one wants to take any risk by
sharing his views. Who knows who will get annoyed when and hit out by invoking
conduct rules . After all getting a government job was never easy even if one
was an IAS or a clerk and or belonged to a privileged class or reserved category.
