Need to clear animal carcass dispose off
Dear Editor It seems that the condition of relief camps in Jammu was pathetic and an epidemic threat was looming large over water logged Srinagar city. The absence of state’s administrative machinery from ground zero calls for brining in workers from neighbouring states to drain out water from Srinagar city, launch massive cleanliness operations, dispose off animal carcass scientifically and most importantly set up medical camps and hospitals so that people are saved from possible spread of an epidemic besides continuing with relief and rehabilitation operations. Though it’s going to take government months together to assess losses, yet the priority should be to locate missing persons and make sure that the saved ones are provided with adequate facilities before the onset of winters.

Parliamentary committee for tribunals
Dear Editor, It refers to "The Tribunals, Appellate Tribunals and Other Authorities (Condition of Service) Bill 2014" presently before a Parliamentary Standing Committee of for discussion. It is quite often that heads of such bodies misuse their posts by installing costly fixtures, equipments, gazettes, furniture etc at their official residences at cost of the body headed by them, when the limit set up by Central Public Works Department (CPWD) is exhausted. Even money is spent from bodies headed by them on further renovation and refurnishing official residences. Personal domestic staff is also quite often shown as staff of such bodies headed by them. Apart from this, they employ their favourites as official staff through manipulation. It is indeed regretting that such highly-posted pers...

Parliamentary Committee for Delhi HC Bill
Dear Editor, It refers to "The Delhi High Court (Amendment) Bill 2014" presently before a Parliamentary Standing Committee of for discussion, aimed to increase pecuniary jurisdiction of Delhi High Court from rupees twenty lakh as at present to rupees two crores for future. Firstly rules for all High Courts in the country should be common and same. As such the proposed Bill should be effective for all High Courts rather than only for Delhi High Court. Secondly, power to increase pecuniary jurisdiction of High Courts should rest with some specified body rather than requiring any Bill to amend to be legislated through Parliament. It will give regular increase in the pecuniary jurisdiction of High Courts with fall in value of money rather than giving sudden jerk of increase like at present ...

Handling RTI petitions
Dear Editor, It is quite often especially with departments of Delhi government and the three Municipal Corporations of Delhi that RTI responses do not carry some basis details like date of RTI petition, from where transferred and date of receipt of RTI petition by the responding officer. Instead their own created ID numbers for the RTI petitions is mentioned by public-authorities. It creates much difficulty for an RTI petitioner to match the response in case he/she might have filed more than one RTI petition that too when at times, RTI response is received after a gap of several months because of the RTI petition kept on transferring from one public-authority to the other. Non-providing of date of receipt of RTI petition by the responding officer also results in filing of petitions at In...

Lack of preparedness to fight natural calamities
Dear Editor, No doubt we are in the 21st century and often boost that we are marching ahead in development of the country and often we compete our nation with the development of other fast growing countries of the world but the question arises are we prepared to deal with the calamities which happen off and on in the century as compared to other countries. The countries like USA, Japan, China, Netherlands are more aware and are far ahead than India in case of dealing with the natural disasters successfully. These countries in the present era possess ultra modern scientific equipments which caution them in advance about the natural disasters to come and accordingly the authorities of these countries take precautionary measures and become successful as seen in many cases to save the live...

Inquiry in the conduct/inaction of Udhampur DC
Dear Editor Jammu and Kashmir state has been struck with a natural calamity with unprecedented scale and the Civil administration was caught napping. But the equally unprecedented measures taken by your Hon’ble self by deploying Army to rescue the marooned population is noteworthy. But the laxity by Deputy Commissioner, Udhampur, Yasha Mudgal has cost people of district Udhampur dearly, where more than 30 have lost life and 40-50 are still missing. Due to Criminal negligence of DC Udhampur, rescue measures couldn’t start on time resulting into loss of precious lives. People of Panjar Panchayat of Panchari Block rang many times to District Administration to provide helicopter to rescue trapped people but Deputy Commissioner Yasha Mudgil remained totally unconcerned. She remained incommu...

Welcome celebration of Teachers’ Day in first-ever unique style
Dear Editor, Prime Minister Narender Modi has set an exemplary trend to make birth-anniversary of late Dr Radhakrishnan on 5th September 2014 by celebrating ‘Teachers Day’ in a unique style for the first time by interacting directly with school-children across the country through video-conferencing. Otherwise the day was celebrated in earlier years by fulfilling normal formalities like giving newspaper-advertisements and honouring selected teachers, the events going unnoticed by most people. It is an irony that while Congress could not give due honour to its legendry party-heroes like Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel, Dr Radhakrishnan etc, Prime Minister Narender Modi has given due honour to such great personalities despite their being affiliation with the rival party. Unfortunately Congress has...

Floods the natural disaster in J&K
Dear Editor, A natural disaster is any catastrophic event that is caused by nature or the natural processes of the earth. The severity of a disaster is measured in lives lost, economic loss, and the ability of the population to rebuild. Events that occur in unpopulated areas are not considered disaster so a flood on the uninhabited place would not count as a disaster but a flood in a populated area is called a natural disaster. It is very painful to see Jammu and Kashmir nowadays in the grip of natural disasters i.e., floods which has broken all the previous records both in Kashmir and Jammu provinces. Worst sufferers are the poor people who reside in far flung hilly areas and due to continuous heavy rains many of them lost their precious lives and shelters. Their crops are totally van...

End outdated colonial laws
Dear Editor, Union government has rightly taken up review of all laws of British era to end those colonial laws which have of no relevance now. Already self-attested affidavits are set to replace old tradition of getting these attested by gazetted officers. Revenue-stamp is required for receipts of amounts over a specified limit which is now rupees 5000 even though payment is made through banks. This is also a useless colonial practice which needs to be altogether abolished. Rather signed receipts become useless in case gumming of revenue-stamps is not proper, because major portion of signature vanishes in case poorly gummed revenue-stamp is somehow removed from the signed receipt with signature made on a revenue-stamp. Union government should do away with requirement of revenue-stamps f...

Smart cities and corporate dreams
Dear Editor, With a new government in Delhi, India’s urban agenda is now focused on the creation of “Smart Cities” in industrial corridors. Such an initiative is driven by the demand of foreign investors to find sanitized spaces in developing countries in which they can operate easily – unhampered by politics. In the Union Budget of 2014-15, Finance Minister Arun Jaitely in his Budget speech announced that a sum of Rs. 70 billion (around $1.2 billion) will be provided to fulfil Modi’s vision of “developing ‘one hundred Smart Cities’, as satellite towns of larger cities and by modernizing the existing mid-sized cities.” In order to allow foreign investors to have a larger role in the development of Smart Cities, the entry requirements for Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) in terms of mi...
