PSU's need professionalism
Professionalism is missing in PSU's for the last four decades.
People having leadership qualities, professional qualities
and honest and sincere are not reaching the top positions.
The basic reason is the selection procedure of PESB. Government
should abolish the PESB and constitute a new board by inviting
applications directly. It is the time for the government
to review all the appointments and replace the entire board
with honest professionals.
Maintain best traditions of services
This refers to the action taken by the State Government
in respect of religious propagation activities by an IAS
office who claims that it is his right to do so. Irrespective
of any service rules, it is felt that such type of activities
must not form part of an officer belonging to any of the
services. Of course, there is no bar on any officer simply
practicing his/her own faith as an individual. But the officer
community must build a consensus and pressure on any of
their colleagues undertaking activities which amount to
active propagation, whether during or even outside office
hours. Let every member of the services be seen also to
be secular. This is a call to all officers to prevail upon
their colleagues to maintain the best traditions of the
services, which go beyond the rule book.
The Applicant sought information regarding the details of
the properties of her estranged husband as per records of
the bank. The PIO denied the information under Section 8
(1) (d) of the RTI Act on the ground that it pertained to
a third party. The applicant submitted that she needs the
details of the properties of her estranged husband to get
a share in the same for herself and her child. The CIC referred
to the Supreme Court judgment in Girish Ramchandra Deshpande
vs. Central Information Commissioner and Ors. [Special Leave
Petition (Civil) No. 27734 of 2012] and held that the information
sought by the Applicant is exempted from disclosure under
Section 8 (1) (j) of the RTI Act.
Just because a public servant is in litigation with someone
in the course of a private dispute, the personal information
cannot be provided to establish the truth of allegations.
Such disclosure cannot be said to be in "public interest"
as the litigation is a private one.
