PMO should check Personal Staff
of all Ministers
The PMO should check the Personal Staff of all the Ministers
as most of the time, the Personal Staff indulge in undesirable
activities without the knowledge of the Ministers concerned
which will damage the reputation of the Ministers. Similarly,
the PMO should identify diligent and honest officers working
as Personal Staff Members of Ministers and motivate them
through incentives such as hiring them for PMO or other
higher government bodies.
No informal staff with Ministers
No informal staff with Ministers but also for the Senior
Bureaucrats who arm twist the office and PSUs for it. There
are clear cut instructions of DOP&T in this regard.
Since long the DOP&T has not re-iterated its instructions.
The last one was sent long back by Arvind Verma former Secretary-DoP&T.
Even after retirement, LTC is must
7th pay commission should include LTC facility to the retired
officers of Central Secretariat and provide 75 % of pension

other benefits. Even after retirement, LTC is must.
Clean Service Tax Department
Can someone help to make service tax department clean and
corruption (alleged) free which comes under CBEC. It will
fulfill the aspiration of PM to make country corruption
free and stop generation of black money.
Instructions never followed in ICFRE
In Indian Council of Forestry Research and Education (ICFRE),
an autonomous council of MoEF, the instruction issued by
MOF's circulars of 2013 and 2014 : No -- 7(2) E (Coord)
/ 2013 ,dated 18 Sept 20 and 7(1) E (Coord) / 2014 ,dated
29th 0ct,2014 and also CVC are always violated and has no
meaning for Director General and Directors of the institutes.
More than 100 IFS officers are posted on deputation with
out the approval of Ministry of Finance in IGNFA, ICFRE
and its institutes and most have of them have been drawing
higher salary then their work and allowances. There is no
control of MoEF and MoF on these organisations. Therefore
the OM issued by MoF need to monitored seriously, otherwise
there is no meaning to issue such instructions. Most of
the officer on deputation in these organisations are drawing
excess salary and allowances.

The appellant asked for the service details of a teacher
regarding her date of joining the service, her present residential
address and her salary certificates, etc. During hearing
before the CIC, the teacher submitted that the information
seeker is her husband who is harassing her. She raised objection
to the disclosure of information to the appellant, saying
that it is her personal information. The CIC held that information
about salary and official address of public servant is public
in nature and shall be disclosed to any person including
spouse. Salary details including deductions contained in
Salary slip or certificate and residential address of the
public servants is personal information, and also third
party information. Only after proof of larger public interest
such information also can be given. Filing of 50 RTI applications
reflects the personal animosity but not public interest.
Cases where spouses are seeking information about each other
are now increasingly coming to notice. They may be involved
in marital disputes and cases both civil and criminal, may
be filed mutually against each other. They can also seek
information to help them to prove or disprove the charges.
However, it must be born in mind that information unconnected
with the discharge of public duties should not be provided
unless the disclosure establishes a larger public interest.
