We are still colonial in our outlook is all that's proven once
again when we hear about the blame game in the face of the Commonwealth games!
Present is witness to it and future shall prove to be the same if the Engineering
fraternity as a whole does not respond to this identity crisis in our country.
If we cannot be awarded for all the good work shouldered, we are not to be punished
for the failures.
Kudos for raising the voice of Engg.
Kudos for raising the voice of the Engineering Professionals
of the country. What we miss to see is the ATR on mismanagement of many Govt.
establishments/ Institutions which are in the red or closed now AND which were
at one time headed by the Blue Eyed Boys of the Elite Services. I can remember
the fate of Super Bazar & DTC of Delhi. The readers will be able to identify
many more such cases across the country. Our country is perhaps yet to acknowledge
the contribution of the Engineers, which affect the daily life of a common man
at every step. Wish the voice is heard in the right quarters!
games2010...bureaucracy plays it again!
It is a fact that on and off Engineers
have been coroneted with the crowns for failures as the success is destined for
the bureaucrats as the fundamental law of justice!
It does not surprise any
of us any further that the credit and acclamation for any infrastructure breakthroughs
like the ones in Bihar also goes to the bureaucrats
though the engineers are
striving day and night for the same. We have just remained responsible for targets
or failures ...the success can never be owned by us!
Government considers them superior ?
Why does the Government consider
the IAAS, IPoS, IRTS, IRS (Customs) and IRS(Income tax) unworthy of getting what
the IPS and the Indian Forest Service (not recruited through the Civil Service
Exam but recruited through an exam which is limited to only science graduates
and hence limited competition)are getting? Many an officer in the IRS did not
opt for the IPS. Anyway, why should there be blatant discrimination with the "Central"
Services when they are recruited through the same exam especially since 1979 since
when the exam and the number of papers is the same and more so since 1994 when
half the officers in the IAS have ranks lower than half the officers in the IPS
and the IRS? What is sacrosanct about the "All India" Services (except
that the IAS tries to create an artificial boundary between itself and the rest-
which it cannot create any more so it has created an AIS instead of IAS!). The
"Central" Services should get what the IAS is getting. Period. Moreover
since this Brahmanism can not end otherwise, there should be a quota in Central
Staffing (which are open posts for all, but are almost exclusively manned by the
IAS in practice in violation of all Rules) for the IPS and Central Services for
posts of Joint Secretary and above. Without that, justice will never be done to
the Other Backward Services(OBS- non IAS services).
CAs to increase revenue
Chartered Accountants (CA) should have a job opportunity
in revenue services in government department. Many experienced CAs aged between
30 to 35 years have great practical experience as well as professional knowledge
which can serve better for the government to increase revenue. CA having 6 to
10 years of expertise in private sector or in practice have more knowledge than
a IRS appointed in Revenue department.
Malik has a great sense of humour or shall we say sarcasm when he praises Bhide.
Bhides contribution is unparallel
to lowering the morale of IRS, denying the revenue officers proper scale in pay
commission implementation is unparallel. The way he used to talk to officers in
the meetings only showed his arrogance.
