A Report by Global Financial Integrity, Washington-DC-
T
he total Illicit Financial Outflows from India between 2003 & 2013 were $439 Billion-$94.8Billion of that in 2012 alone. Now India ranks 4th in the world. To put the figure in perspective, the $439billion of outflows come to about 23% of India's GDP in 2013($1.87 billion). Alarming part is that an alarming Rate of 9.4% a year-twice as fast as Global GDP. Sources of Illicit Financial Outflows are-Deliberate trade mis-invoicing, and due to leakage in Balance of payment. Major consequences for developing Economies are-funds could have invested in local businesses, Healthcare, Education or infrastructure. Who is responsible? This menac must be investigated

MCI controls medical education
The MCI controls medical education in the country, 15,000 crores are generated every year by capitation fees ( Black Money). The country has seen shifting of a Health Secretary - Mr Desiraju in February 2014 and a Cabinet Minister In October 2014 from Health Department. Incidentally both of them had taken a stand to set things right in MCI. The working of Heath Ministry has witnessed 4 persons in past 6 months to the position of Director- Medical Education, yet another coincidence??

DATE WITH RTI

Destruction of records during the pendency of RTI application

An application was filed under the RTI Act seeking information regarding appointment of Associate Professor. The Public Information Officer (PIO) replied that no such information was available. The CIC did not accept the claim of the respondents that the record is weeded out without showing their Weeding out Policy, especially when an RTI application is pending in respect of that record. The CIC observed that if the record is weeded out during the pendency of the RTI application, they will be held responsible. Referring to the Public Records Act, 1993, the CIC asked the PIO to submit a certified copy of the record retention schedule followed by the public authority and the file noting with respect to the appellants file which had been weeded out, along with the date of destruction.

Comments

Even if the records have outlived the time prescribed under weeding out policy, the same cannot be destroyed if an application under the RTI Act is pending. If any such records are destroyed, a demand can be made for imposition of penalty under Section 20 of RTI Act.
