The PM is Listening - Great Action

Friends:

In early January, we had submitted 3 Govt priorities for 2015 with "Making Bureaucracy Deliver" on the top. Our submission below:

http://tinyurl.com/GovtPriorities-2015-byCitizens

We are pleased to see this initiative by the PM yesterday. Please read through.

To ensure speedy execution of crucial projects, PM Narendra Modi gives secretaries more power

The Modi government has radically enhanced and transformed top bureaucracy's role in project implementation and potentially reduced ministerial involvement, secretaries from different, in some cases widely different, ministries have been teamed up into eight working groups and each group has been tasked with getting fast results on crucial projects.

There's no formal involvement of ministers in this arrangement and secretaries with very different remits have been put in the same group. Both are rare administrative steps in government.

These groups will directly submit their reports to the Cabinet Secretariat, which will pass them on to the PMO. Ministers are not formally involved at any stage. And the practice of keeping top babus wedded to their remits has been changed. For example, the defence and home secretaries, both heavyweight bureaucrats, are in the working group on financial services. And the culture secretary and school education secretary are in the working group on industry.

To ensure speedy execution of crucial projects, PM Narendra Modi gives secretaries more power This major change in how the top bureaucracy works was formalised through a Department of Personnel & Training order on April 16. ET has reviewed the DoPT order.

The eight working groups, with 9-11 members, will cover the following areas: industry; skill development; infrastructure relating to rail, road & air; urban development; rural infrastructure and human resource management; agriculture and agro processing; financial services; health and social issues.

The government's directive to these groups of top bureaucrats is that they must first identify two schemes that can be tailored for better delivery as quickly as in three months. The groups have also been told to identify two existing projects or schemes that can be transformed in the long term but with minimal budgetary support.

The order on this arrangement notes that this major restructuring is a followup action to the prime minister asking all secretaries to go back to their first posting and then submit reports on those districts. The work of these groups does not end with just identifying specific schemes and projects. According to the DoPT order, the working groups will further "assign responsibilities to concerned ministries" to implement specific steps. Not just that, they will assign "time limits for achievement" of milestones, devise methods of "periodic monitoring" and "final evaluation" followed by "ways of maintenance". While the idea was to have the schemes and projects identified by April-end itself, senior officials said, the process will take longer because these groups have just begun to hold meetings.

"This is a very interesting innovation by the PM because these officers in the last leg of their career are being challenged to come up with ideas based on their experience and the gaps they have noticed in their tours," said a senior official. These officials spoke to ET on the condition they not be identified.

| Save our Banks and Banking A freak phenomenon has taken over the Indian Economy. Thanks to the NPA phenomenon, there is Tax Free Looting of Banks, but there is neither Tax free saving, nor at least Tension free saving. People who owe banks crores and crores of rupees are going scot free. The little money in the banks is eyed by Political leaders for vote banking.
 But in the case of Fixed Deposits, which make banks actually exist, the rate of interest is usually less than the rate of inflation. The Senior citizens who want to live on the interest on Fixed Deposits are actually cheated by the non-income or false income. Year after year inflation reduces the principal value of the Fixed Deposits. Great leaps in the market value of the real estate properties, is making the true value of the fixed deposits very low. TO CAP THE INJUSTICE THE FALSE INCOME—INTEREST ON FIXED DEPOSITS IS ADDED TO THE TAXABLE INCOME,INCREASING THE INCOME TAX.THE PEOPLE ARE LEFT WITH NO ALTERNATIVE BUT TO ENTER THE BLACK MONEY DEALINGS.THE GOVERNMENT IS LOSING COMPLETELY.TO SAVE ITSELF INCOME TAX ON FIXED DEPOSITS SHALL BE ELIMINATED.OTHERWISE ALL BANKS WILL CLOSE. One of the slogans of Modi was there will be no tax terrorism. But the interest on Fixed Deposits which in fact is always neutralized by the rate of inflation which is always more is actually reduced and there is a big hunt for catching this white money, to see that the fake income interest on Fixed Deposits is included in the taxable income. |
