Use of A-4 paper-size in courts
Dear Editor, It refers to response from Department of Justice following a submission forwarded there through Lok Sabha Committee on Petitions that a meeting of Chairpersons of Computer Committees of High Courts chaired by Supreme Court judge Mr Justice Madan B Lokur held on 2/3.08.2014 to consider replacement of legal-size paper in courts by A-4 size paper for bringing uniformity has not yet finally decided on long-pending issue of larger consumer interest. Chairpersons of Computer Committees of High Courts should at least now finally decide on the aspect considered by them long back on 2/3.08.2014 in larger public interest. However colour-code of paper to be used in courts can be different like green is used in Madras High Court. Presently A-4 size paper (29.5 cms x 21 cms) is most com...

Begging menace on streets
Dear Editor Begging is banned in most of the countries including India but still this social crime is taking a deep root in our social setup as this menace is a byproduct of wrong social policies where the rich becomes richer and poor becomes the poorer. This huge haves and have nots gap gives birth to so many problems including begging before the fellow human being for survival. No sooner do you screech the brakes of your car on a traffic signal, a swarm of young children, women and men run towards the car with their folded hands to cry, clamor and beg before you. Despite of repeated denials, a principal which every responsible citizen should follow to eradicate this menace, these destitute and poor people make way from one commuter to another for coins and alms. They bang the windowp...

Need to update CIC website
Dear Editor, Central Information Commission (CIC) has introduced much-awaited new website. Its cover-page has a photo-slide where annual CIC-convention of the year 2015 is prominently covered through a series of photographs with over-prominence given to a former Chief Information Commissioner who left bitter remembrance because of his unpopular style of functioning. Otherwise also it is improper to place a photo of just one former Chief Information Commissioner with others not finding place on new CIC-website after retirement. It was even more surprising that existing Chief Information Commissioner does not appear in the series of photographs. CIC-website should have an altogether fresh set of photographs with prominence also given to oath-taking ceremony of present Chief Information Co...

All post offices should accept RTI petitions
Dear Editor, Presently about 4500 out of about one-and-half lakh post-offices in the country provide a user-friendly service of accepting RTI petitions addressed to central public authorities without requiring any postal charges to be paid by RTI petitioners. Following a CIC-verdict recommending increasing number of such post-offices to 27000, Department of Posts went even beyond by deciding to provide such facility to all about one-and-half lakh post-offices in the country. But unfortunately Department of Posts seems to have changed its mind when the facility is still not implemented in all post offices of the country. There are absolutely no practical problems in providing facility to accept RTI petitions addressed to central public-authorities without requiring postal charges at all ...

Candies in place of coins should be made offence
Dear Editor, Traders once adopted practice of giving unwanted items like candies and chocolates out of compulsion when there was shortage of coins. But experience reveals that now there is no such practical shortage of coins at least as observed in capital city of Delhi. Yardstick is present sufficient availability of coins with DTC conductors who also earlier faced shortage of coins. But clever traders even now continue with unhealthy practice of giving candies/chocolates in place of coins because they earn huge percentage-margins on these unwanted items forcibly ‘sold’ to consumers in place of coins. Traders even do not care to banks for procuring coin-bags. Department of Consumer Affairs used to give newspaper-advertisements advising consumers not to accept candies/chocolates in pla...

Explosive growth of unemployment: A serious problem
Dear Editor, The number of unemployed youth is growing alarmingly and it is reported that 11 per cent of the total population in India is unemployed. The rulers on the other hand claim that they have concrete plans of providing employment to the unemployed youth which appears to be on paper so far while as on ground the intensity of unemployment can be gauged from the grim picture that lakhs of unemployed people having Ph. D.M. Phil. post graduate graduation qualification or those who have undergone engineering and doctors’ courses are compelled by the circumstances have applied for a handful of certain menial jobs like Peons, Patwaris, Gram Adhikari, Safai Karamcharis etc. in U.P., Chhattisgarh, Gujarat and other states of India where minimum qualification for employment on such posts ...

Holding driving-license in Delhi for violation of traffic-rules
Dear Editor, Subsequent to the orders dated 18.08.2015 and 17.11.2015 of the Supreme Court Committee on Road Safety, driving-licences of violators of traffic-rules used to be held by police-authorities under suspension for three months. In Delhi, Traffic Police used to keep such suspended licences with it for the stipulated period of three months after which these were returned to the licensees. But suddenly system has been changed where Delhi Traffic Police is now supposed to send all suspended licenses to head-office of Delhi Transport Department which is supposed to send it to respective registering authorities having issued these driving-licenses. Whole system has resulted in concerned licensees running from one office to other wasting their time and that too not resulting in gettin...

Chikungunya threat
Dear Editor, Chikungunya is spreading at a jet speed .It makes a person immobile for a longer time. One reason is that most people in our country live in most unhygienic conditions- even metro and big cities are not clean as they should be. One can see garbage piling up at rubbish dumps across the city. One cannot only blame the authorities as people have unhygienic habits as they do not keep their surroundings clean. If our surroundings are hygienically clean, there shall be lesser number of fatal dieses like Dengue and Chikungunya etc. The Prime Minister's Swachch Bharat campaign must be implemented in letter and spirit throughout India-with some penal actions on both authorities and citizens- to remain healthier and improve our economy as output is more when citizens are healthie...

Uri attack and aftermath
Dear Editor, With Indian war cries getting louder, there is no doubt the Uri terror attack will make the already fraught relations between India and Pakistan even frostier. But the truth is this latest upsurge in violence has a distinctly home-grown flavour. The huge wave of protests against Indian rule that were prompted by the killing of a popular young militant on 8 July have been overwhelmingly by people from Kashmir. The attack is likely to mean normal life in the province will continue to be paralysed by the curfew imposed by the security forces for some time to come. The Indian government says it wants to reach out to the Kashmiris, but so far its overtures have been rejected by separatists who insist that the issue of Kashmiri independence must be on the table. —Tariq Ahmed, ...

Focusing on peace is imperative for our future
Dear Editor, 21st September is observed around the world as the International Day of Peace. The 'Peace' God means for us is not 'world peace' but it means completeness, soundness, prosperity at all levels of our lives. World peace is defined as an ideal of freedom, peace, and happiness among and within all nations and/or people. When we wake up in the morning and listen to the radio or read the newspaper, we are confronted with the same sad news: violence, crime, wars, and disasters. Today, peace has predominantly become political work towards settlement of issues between the nations through military involvement, cessation of arms and weapons and dialogue on less-violent, civilian matters. Peace has also included some humanitarian efforts that stretch its helping hands to the calamit...
