Re: [IAC#RG] PAIN OF LISTENING TO ENGLISH NEWS T V MEDIA ANCHORS

I agree entirely with the views expressed. There is no gainsaying that the TV anchors assume that they are a law unto themselves and they do not care in the least about the time we waste listening to their dogfights. As one viewer suggested the only way is to cut off the arrogant and irresponsible shouters and allow the conduct of the debates in a civilised way.  I often wonder whether these gentlemen ever watch any of the programmes conducted by the BBC or CNN!   Maybe they don't worry about their TRP ratings!

I fully agree with the observations regarding the news channel debates.
 Atleast one of the drawbacks mentioned can be set aside immediately by controlling the volumes of the speakers so that only one person only is allowed to be heard clearly while others can be heard with much reduced volume. This option may be controlled by the anchor on the basis of the time allotted to each speaker.
It will be upto the speaker if he wishes to utilise the allotted time meaningfully towards the basic  issue or waste the time aimlessly towards unwanted shouting.
Public is not receptive to high db bickering.

                                                                    PAIN OF LISTENING TO  ENGLISH NEWS  T V MEDIA  ANCHORS

Obviously, the anchors in English news TV  media who conduct the debates have no in depth knowledge or specialisation in any field. However, they seem to think that they can talk on any subject whether it is economics, politics, science and technology, crime investigation, culture, foreign policy, sports, and what not. It is not an exaggeration to say that their knowledge is half baked , which is there for all to see but these anchors  do not seem to know.

They seem to have a set of people who are called to participate in debates  and they  seem to be available all the time at their beck and call. With many  participants , most of whom are directly or indirectly involved in politics  and not in any way better than the anchors in their  analytical ability, the debate is marked  by lung power rather than substance. The anchor often matches the participants in the lung power, showing  no mercy for the viewers. Certainly, intelligent people with facts and figures, who want to observe decorum ,cannot have their say in full in these debates, which viewers may be eager to listen.

Most of the viewers helplessly watch these debates and keep on changing from one channel to another, wondering whether one channel would be better than the other. This rarely happens.

Fortunately, only a fraction of Indian citizens understand English communication and amongst those who know English, only a small segment have the patience to watch entire debates but the anchors do not care. They seem to whimsically assume that the helpless viewers  will watch anything and everything.

Of course, the worst of the anchors in English  news TV media are  Arnab Goswami and Karan Thapar, who want to dominate the debate and assume that they know everything and exhibit streaks of arrogance and impoliteness. They put questions and when the participants  respond, they cut them and put more questions and shout so much that no one can hear what the participants  say.  These anchors do not seem to realise that they are so uncivilised in their behaviour.
With Indians putting up  with several inconvenience  in day today life, the pain of watching  English TV debates is one more pain that they have to endure .

Re: [IAC#RG] India against Corruption should expose farce in public life in the name of Gandhism

Dear Mr. Jain

IAC takes whatever steps it deems necessary.

For your information we took it up with The Hindu last year, that it
was being incorrectly stated that Gen VKS was a member of IAC along
with Anna Hazare.
http://www.thehindu.com/news/national/bjp-is-the-only-party-that-thinks-of-national-interest-says-vk-singh/article5739915.ece

" Clarification

Referring to an earlier version of the report above, Sarbajit Roy,
national convenor of India Against Corruption has pointed out that
BJP's candidate from Ghaziabad Gen (Retd.) V.K. Singh has never been
associated with India Against Corruption.

"Gen (Retd.) V.K.Singh was never associated with India Against
Corruption and neither was Mr. Anna Hazare a part of it. Referring to
them in the context of IAC is misleading especially in context of
political activity," Mr. Roy has said. "

Just yesterday Gen V K Singh has also clarified himself that he was
never a part of IAC.
http://www.dnaindia.com/india/report-vk-singh-claims-to-never-have-been-a-part-of-india-against-corruption-movement-2055188

IAC does not respond to lightweights like "Dr." Kumar Vishwaas

Insofar as Mr. Anna Hazare.ji is concerned, IAC has always
acknowledged his work in popularising our movement's name, and we
salute his decision to stay non-political.

We don't know what you mean by "Gandhian". IAC is not Gandhian. I dont
think even Annaji himself claims to be a Gandhian - he also backs
IAC's ideology and is 100% committed to Bhagat Singh's revolutionary
path. It was only that traitor lady Kiran Bedi who was projecting Anna
as Gandhian and non-violent.

http://en.citizendium.org/wiki/File:Anna_pays_homage_HRA_Bhagat_Singh.jpg
.
IAC had objected to all those BJP moles as far back as  9 Dec 2010.

On 5 April 2011 I personally complained to the Police Commissioner of
Delhi against Kiran Bedi who had arranged for some anti-national
persons from VHP for Anna and who were raising anti-India slogans and
disrespecting the national flag.

[IAC#RG] Fwd: IAC and NCPRI international cooperation with YACC, Yemen anti-Corruption Committee

Dear Friends

Recently India Against Corruption "IAC" and National Campaign for Political Reform in India "NCPRI" were part of an anti-corruption conference along with CBI and CVC to meet delegates from Arab nations like Yemen.

IAC was shocked to observe that the US imperialists have managed to impose not only a horrible Freedom of Information "RTI" law on an economically weakened Yemen, but also imposed a Lokpal style "Ombudsman" Commission which they call as "SNACC". Like Lokpal, this "Supreme National anti-Corruption Commission" is made with retired judges, lawyers and some financial auditors to act like some sort of Spanish Inquisition Star Chamber.

Since the helpless citizens of war-torn Yemen are equally apprehensive about their deadly and Satanic World Bank agenda imposed RTI law, which even allows foreigners to apply for information, gives first preference to journalists to get info, imposes 3 months imprisonment on PIOs and also crippling financial penalties, and all the other usual World Bank claptrap, and has hardly any safeguards to protect govt. like our RTI law has in section 8 and 9,  they have organised themselves as YACC or "Yemen anti-Corruption Committee" to protest and were also granted a token World Bank grant.

So we independent IAC and RTI anti-coruption veterans like myself, Subhash Chandra Agrawal, Pradeep Gupta ie. pan-IIT, etc. had a very frank talk and explained all the plus and minuses of their deadly RTI law to them and shared all our own experiences, and shared how all our organisations like CBI, CVC were only an eyewash and muzzled agencies of Government. I also explained to them how certain foreign financed advocacy groups had self appointed themselves as guardians of India's RTI and claimed to represent the citizens and to be careful of such persons, who were encouraging widespread misuse of RTI to ensure that government cannot function and citizens "rise up in arms" to dismember our respective nations.

IAC, and especially Subhash, were so convincing that the other paid advocacy sections of the NCPRI movement and the CBI introduced to present the government side faced a rather sceptical YACC the next day.

IAC also had excellent interactions with the members of SNACC which is receiving millions of US dollars to somehow "show" the international community of nations that World Bank can reduce the massive corruption in Yemen which has caused civil war in many parts with sectarian, ie. Sunni-Shia violence like which had ripped Iraq earlier.

Recently Gujarat High Court has made a rule that Party In Person cannot appear in his case unless Special Committee takes interview and passes him to appear and competent to appear in the case.

I had seen one Advocate of one Justice loitering in the courts to canvass for doing favorable judgment !!!!
In one case Justice G T  Nanavati and other Justice made order immediately after abolition of Controller of Capital Issues office by Manmoihan Singh in Fianance Bill. in 1992. C C I Office was afraud and cash counter to Grant hefty premiums over the share public issue.
Since the office is abolished the petition is dismissed. No Affidavit filed by Controller of Capital Issues!!! How the flow of water gate flows!!!! To fight with this I had to appeal to Supreme Court of India by spending lacs of rupees!!!!

The Times of India report:
Court pendency behind India's low global ranking: World Bank.

NEW DELHI: Large pendency of cases in Indian courts and non-implementation of judicial reforms have been cited by the World Bank as one of the key reasons for India's low rank on the Bank's Index of 'Ease of Doing Business'. India was ranked 142 among 189 countries last year.

In a memorandum to the department of industrial policy and promotion (DIPP) under the commerce ministry, the World Bank suggested linking judges' appraisal with reduction of pendency in courts. Sources said the matter was discussed at a meeting organized by the DIPP recently to refine the performance evaluation system of judges to link their performance to the resolution of specific bottlenecks as suggested by the World Bank.

The DIPP is also coordinating implementation of the 'Make in India' campaign of the Modi government.

Interestingly, the World Bank suggested that there was an urgent need for reforms in the system of performance appraisal of judicial officers in the country to bring about uniformity and infuse objectivity and standardization.

The Bank cited an example from Malaysia where implementation of a reform index for judges improved case disposal rates and reduced backlog by 50% in less than three years. Another example was cited from the United Arab Emirates, where rewards were instituted for the best performers.

According to the memorandum, the liberal grant of adjournments was an often cited reason for delays in court proceedings in India. It recommended monitoring the number of times judges granted adjournments and the reasons for granting them. "This can be done through case management systems and linked to performance management evaluations," it said.

It asked the government to ensure that adjournments were not indefinite by setting a time limit.

Just a few weeks ago, the Modi government had written to chief justices of all 24 high courts to ensure speedier settlement of commercial and other disputes for creating a conducive investment climate and success of 'Make in India' campaign.

"One of the reforms introduced by Malaysia between 2009 and 2011 during the overhaul of the judicial system was the implementation of a reform index for judges," the Bank said, citing how this index, fixed by the judges themselves, was aimed at allowing them to assess and monitor their performance. As a result of this and other measures, case disposal rates in Malaysian courts improved and backlog was reduced by 50% in less than three years, it said.

Court pendency behind India's low global ranking: World Bank.


NEW DELHI: Large pendency of cases in Indian courts and non-implementation of judicial reforms have been cited by the World Bank as one of the key reasons for India's low rank on the Bank's Index of 'Ease of Doing Business'. India was ranked 142 among 189 countries last year.


In a memorandum to the department of industrial policy and promotion (DIPP) under the commerce ministry, the World Bank suggested linking judges' appraisal with reduction of pendency in courts. Sources said the matter was discussed at a meeting organized by the DIPP recently to refine the performance evaluation system of judges to link their performance to the resolution of specific bottlenecks as suggested by the World Bank.


The DIPP is also coordinating implementation of the 'Make in India' campaign of the Modi government.


Interestingly, the World Bank suggested that there was an urgent need for reforms in the system of performance appraisal of judicial officers in the country to bring about uniformity and infuse objectivity and standardization.


The Bank cited an example from Malaysia where implementation of a reform index for judges improved case disposal rates and reduced backlog by 50% in less than three years. Another example was cited from the United Arab Emirates, where rewards were instituted for the best performers.


According to the memorandum, the liberal grant of adjournments was an often cited reason for delays in court proceedings in India. It recommended monitoring the number of times judges granted adjournments and the reasons for granting them. "This can be done through case management systems and linked to performance management evaluations," it said.


It asked the government to ensure that adjournments were not indefinite by setting a time limit.


Just a few weeks ago, the Modi government had written to chief justices of all 24 high courts to ensure speedier settlement of commercial and other disputes for creating a conducive investment climate and success of 'Make in India' campaign.


"One of the reforms introduced by Malaysia between 2009 and 2011 during the overhaul of the judicial system was the implementation of a reform index for judges," the Bank said, citing how this index, fixed by the judges themselves, was aimed at allowing them to assess and monitor their performance. As a result of this and other measures, case disposal rates in Malaysian courts improved and backlog was reduced by 50% in less than three years, it said.

S.G.KORGAONKAR THE COMMISSIONER OF COMMERCIAL TAXES MUST BE SHOWN THE RED CARD

 

By Aires Rodrigues

 

The newly appointed Chief Secretary of Goa Kewal Sharma has been urged to immediately suspend the Commissioner of Commercial Taxes S.G.Korgaonkar for failing to file as directed a First Information Report (F.I.R) in the 2011 Commercial Tax Inspectors recruitment scam.

 

S.G.Korgaonkar has malafiedly failed to comply with the circular dated 14th March last year which had directed all heads of departments to file a F.I.R wherever illegality or fraud was committed in the staff recruitment process from 1st November 2011 to 30th March 2012.

 

Ironically S.G.Korgaonkar who was also the Chairman of the Departmental Selection Committee has in a letter dated 9th January 2015 to the Government Advocate himself admitted that the recruitment of the Commercial Tax Inspectors was found to be a recruitment scam. S.G.Korgaonkar being the prime accused in the alleged scam, it was incumbent on his part to get the Finance Secretary or Joint Secretary to file the F.I.R in compliance with the government circular. He should now explain his gross dereliction of duty and dishonesty in discharge of his official duties.

 

Despite there being an Additional Commissioner of Commercial Taxes to take charge, the very tainted S.G.Korgaonkar known to bend and break the rules to the pleasure of his political masters is currently under his third extension in service. He has managed and manipulated to get these extensions although a probe against him is currently pending before the Anti-Corruption Branch of the Vigilance department and besides two other cases pending against him at the office of the Goa Lokayukta.

 

The Goa government repeatedly publicly vows on Zero tolerance to Corruption but this sordid state of affairs is there all over for all to see. Let us hope Chief Secretary Kewal Sharma intervenes to ensure that the functioning of the administration does not become a casualty and get derailed from the much needed aura of Good Governance.

[rti_india] Not job of the Commission to ensure recovery of penalties imposed

 

When the CIC and the SICs do not allow the appellant who prayed for penalty / disciplinary action to take part in the show cause / penalty proceedings, how can he take on the job of recovery of penalty / imposing disciplinary action.

If Commission cannot do it, then how can a ordinary citizen be expected to do it ?

Just bizarre !





The grievance appears to be that though in certain cases fines are being imposed on Public Information Officers by the Information Commission on account of violating the provisions of the Right to Information Act, no steps are taken to collect the same. Another complaint is that even though the fine collected, the same is not accounted for. It is alleged that no steps were taken either for recovering the fine amount or to punish the guilty officials.
On behalf of the respondents, no counter affidavit has been filed.

Heard Mr. Madhu Prasun, learned counsel for the petitioner, and Mr. Lalit Kishore, learned Principal Additional Advocate General, appearing for respondent Nos.4, 5 and 6.

Though the objective underlying the Right to Information Act is laudable, in certain areas, it has been pressed into service, for the purposes which are not at all contemplated by the legislature. The Act and the Rules are almost, a self-contained code. If a person, who is under obligation to furnish information, fails to do so, he is liable to be fined and/or subjected to disciplinary action.

Even where fine is imposed or disciplinary action is ordered, it is no part of the duty of the officials who passed the order to ensure that fine is recovered and disciplinary action is taken. At the most, it is a case for a person at whose instance fine was imposed; to insist on the recovery thereof; and third party has no right to seek a general direction for recovery of the fine. It is as good as a Civil Court being placed under obligation to recover the amount covered by a decree.

We do not find any merit in the writ petition. It is, accordingly, dismissed.
The interlocutory application, if any, shall stand disposed of. There shall be no order as to costs.

[IAC#RG] THE VERY SORRY STATE OF JUDICIARY IN GOA

Even a Judge would know which way the verdict will go only after hearing both sides. But the only person who can confidently assure you to extract a favorable judgment in any case is the flamboyant Advocate General of Goa Atmaram Nadkarni.


With all tricks and tantriks up his sleeve besides close contacts with the Judges, Atmaram Nadkarni can guarantee you the tilting of scales of Justice. It is no secret that Atmaram Nadkarni openly socializes and hobnobs with Judges. The others he intimidates and coerces into submission by misusing his position as the Advocate General.


Despite being the Advocate General and that too India’s highest paid while officially pocketing eight lakhs a month, Atmaram Nadkarni has been high-handedly indulging in private litigation against the State while digging deep into the mining lords, builders, Casino lobby and extracting the utmost from every possible beehive around.


While he has installed CCTV cameras to keep a check on his staff and movement of his clients, the same recordings could be examined, which would reveal faces of the litigants who come to meet him for his 'blessings'.


However grave be the illegality committed, Atmaram Nadkarni can sail you through safely and comfortably. But it all comes at a very hefty price. So if you have that load of moolah to shell out in cash or better still to pour it all into his Swiss Bank account your only stop after violating any law is at Panaji’s 18 June Road above the Titan showroom for an audience with King Atmaram.
