PM Issues 19 commandments for Bureaucrats

Regardless of what naysayers of AAP and Congress say, this is good governance!!

Prime Minister Narendra Modi has issued a revised list of 19 commandments for officers serving in the civil services.

The commandments issued by Modi require bureaucrats to be driven by merits as well as be courteous and responsive to the public, as per reports in leading dailies.

The PM further wants officers to be politically neutral, make a declaration of any private interests that they may have as regards their public duties, ensure any decision they take is not aimed to benefit family and friends, and also make efficient use of public resources.

"Every member of the service shall make choices, take decisions and make recommendations on merit alone," say the rules, as per a daily.

The rules require officers to maintain confidentiality in government matters, particularly those that relate to national security; concern strategic, scientific or economic interests of the nation; friendly ties with foreign countries etc.

The commandments also require bureaucrats to exhibit high degree of professionalism; follow the Constitution; uphold sovereignty and integrity of the country; maintain integrity in public service; be fair and impartial in their conduct, particularly with the poor and under-privileged, among others.

The government of PM Modi has incorporated these changes in the All India Services (Conduct) rules.

The commandments, for now, apply only to IAS, IPS and IFS officers. Later on, these would be made applicable to all officials. more

The bureaucrats have issued a revised charge sheet with same incomplete data as a vengeance for writing to PMO. This is the response of the bureaucrats to the 19 Commandments to bureaucrats.

The silence on the part of the PM is nothing different from the previous PM. more  
Dear Varaprasad ji, I agree with you. My experience is very similar. Till date I have not received response ( except automated acknowledgement) for any of my e-mails, or matters posted on websites of parties/departments from time to time, except in one case. The office of LG Delhi has not even acknowledged my email. It was only during Smt Sheila Dikshit as Delhi CM that a matter of public interest was followed up and positive outcome observed. However I have hope things will gradually change as Modi ji has taken over. The new initiative of mygov is very good and one can also register on the pmindia site. It takes time for results to show and I am hopeful for the future. more  
The 19 commandments are not yet made public but I hope they will bring improvement. more  
Whether the bureaucrats respond positively or not is to be seen. In the first week of June 2014 I lodged a grievance petition on the Government of India Grievance Portal and as per our beloved PM's assurances it has to be addressed by now. But there is no response from the concerned department. more
