Information Is Power


This is History (53)

PMO is supreme !

Matt yaad karwao woh dinn..
Chupke chupke raat dinn kosna humme yaad hai!!
Barbaadi ko woh zamaana humme yaad hai!

Jabh Sarkaar tich Parwaa karti thi Desh ki!!
Jabh koyi kaam ke liya jao toh pehle denni padthi peshgi!!

But if you are chup as it's premature to judge!
Giving them some time to get India out of the UPA created sludge!!

Yes it would be right to start judging mid way!!!
This would be the intelligent way!!

Start judging from word go!!
Is for objectivity a big no no!!

Now Swiss Banks are advising Clients...compliance!!
They know they too would be liable in Client's defiance!!

Yes I am talking about the Discloure Scheme!!
Both offender and Banker would be taken as a Team!!

Gandhi died a hundred times when notes with his pic!!
When his pic notes before counting Ghooskhors would lick!!

What use is chanting Gandhi Gandhi???
And then using power to bring about ghoos ki aandhi!!

Abh Gandhi ko mill rahi hai asli shardaanjali!!
Ghoos khoro ki shardhanjli thi ek dumm jaali!!


Naare hai Naaro ka kya:

Again a non-IRS Revenue Secretary
It's really unjust that once more a non IRS officer is taking over as the Revenue Secretary. It's like making Sachin Tendulakar as the coach of football team. It is time that the IRS gets its due. In what respect is it inferior to the IAS ? Anyone can vouch that the IRS is far more sincere than the IAS with an imperial mind set.

7th Pay Commission !

Is government really pushing pay commission to delay the report submission. As per media report, Chairman 7th Pay Commission wanted one month extension for submission of report but Cabinet has reportedly approved four months extension. Can someone analyse the extension and know the mood of government. At least Pay Panel would have submitted its report, then it is up to government when to implement the recommendations. After submission of report a Committee will be constituted to examine the report and put up the recommendations for acceptance by the Govt. of India. Ministry of Finance will further do the impact analysis before implementation. It is long drawn process and will continue another eight to twelve months before it is really implemented.

Short-listing of candidates by PESB for maharatna PSUs

It is need of hour to change the rules .other wise honest sincere, qualified and dedicated candidates who do not have lobby, who do not have any godfather, who are not related to politicians and babus are not eligible. The rules are not framed for such candidates and they are belong to British Raj. PM may kindly look into it and scrap all the selections and bring the honest and sincere persons with high caliber for top positions of PSU's.

Relevant anonymous complaints should be investigated

Government not wanting to protect Whistle Blowers ,how can an insider make complaint about corruption in the organization ? If an anonymous complaint has verifiable facts, it should be investigated .Every organisation should have a committee of middle level officers to scrutinise all the complaints and recommend appropriate action .It is worth spending time and manpower for this work which would be beneficial to the organisation .

Having to pay to put your own signature!!

You never had to pay anyone to put your own signature in any document in the good old days.
In this digital age when emails are free, facebook and twitter are free, you have to pay from your pocket Rs 2745 for putting your own signature in your income tax return form. Why can't they introduce a simple way for everyone to put his signature on the IT form without having to approach a commercial firm and pay it year after year, or the involved and complicated methods of Aadhar verification which do not work for a large majority of taxpayers. That is why so many still resort to the comparatively easier method of sending the paper form of ITR-V which is the lesser of the ordeals in practice.

Do away with this caste based reservation

Patel agitation is more than that meets the eye.It is born out of frustration of the non-reserved class against present day caste based reservation.70 years of reservation has put a large number of citizens in an unequal playing field.This type of reservation is not going to stop as long as we have voting and democracy since no political party is going to stop it. This is inspite of the opinion of that doyen of SCs that reservation should be only for ten years. So the only way left for the non-reserved c;lasses is to get into reserved class by agitating. In the coming days more anmd more castes are going to carry out such agitations. If the nation has to remain strong there is an immediate necessity for doing away with this caste based reservation.

Recognition of institutions by AICTE

Information was fought by an applicant regarding the basis of according approval to B.Tech. Civil Engineering course by the All India Council of Technical Education (AICTE). The respondent officer explained that the Universities can start the technical courses without any prior approval of the AICTE, at their own risk as per Supreme Court's decision inBharatidasan case. However Universities are under obligation to conform to the standards and norms laid down by the AICTE. Being autonomous there is no bar for the Universities to start technical courses. Students have to check about the approval or standards of the course. If they face any difficulties because of lack of AICTE approval for the course, the AICTE will not be responsible. He said the UGC is the appropriate authority to give recognition to the Universities and to advise to seek approval of AICTE for their courses. The CIC noted that the AICTE is vested with statutory authority for planning, formulation and maintenance of norms and standards, quality assurance through accreditation, funding in priority areas, monitoring and evaluation, maintaining parity of certification and awards and ensuring coordinated and integrated development and management of technical education in the country. The CIC noted that the MK Kaw panel had recommended converting the AICTE into a statutory constitutional body and suggested ending the affiliation system of technical schools in the next 10 years. More than 11,000 professional schools, including engineering and management schools, fall under the purview of the AICTE. The CIC observed that there is a strong need for the AICTE to inspect the deemed universities and institutions offering technical courses and ascertain if they are maintaining standards, and if concluded they are not, their names should be published in official website, so that students are informed about courses and standards. AICTE can use its recommendatory power to inform the people about the standards of the courses in Universities. The CIC directed the AICTE to inform the appellant how many institutes are inspected by its teams and how many Universities/institutions are found to be conforming with the standards and norms laid down by AICTE, within one month from the date of receipt of this order.


There are many students who get duped by colleges who offer courses not recognised by the AICTE. There is an urgent need for segregating such institutions to prevent gullible students from falling into their trap.
