Our obeisance to most beloved Prime Minister of India

We should all agree for indefatigable (person who never tires)nature of our most beloved Modi saheb worthiest prime minister of Bharat.

PM is always nations father then why his most of son/daughters in the form of Secretaries GoI are not contributing in the same way.

They should lead harmonious lives but instead they are not giving any value addition and are generally involved playing golf and fulfilling their passion of photography or writing books without making an effort to add new zeal in nation building.
The officers are just like kings and king should only draw passion by doing more and more towards its subjects as he always has more things undone .

So if pleasure is Drawn By doing more and more work towards nation like ,my seen God Modi ,is doing there is no perceived need for any other passion .

Let us all stand and follow the footsteps of Nation's father Modi to make our country número uno in the world ranking.

" Whither Good governance"

Inter-Services rivalry is getting increasingly accentuated, if, the posts regularly appearing in ( Forum) are any guide.

One is shocked at the manner in which the elite bureaucrats are managing to stay put in Delhi, holding important positions in succession, despite dubious credentials. Some get re-employed after superannuation - as reward to their loyalty and for keeping the lips sealed.

The message to the bureaucracy and the public-at-large, is loud and clear.

(i)The bureaucracy is not worth its salt, if, it is not manipulative, pliable , subservient and street-smart to manage the political class at the helm ;
(ii) While honesty incapacitates bureaucracy, merit and truthfulness smile at it;
(iii) Mediocrity thrives in the face of VIP racism in politics. The arrogance of the Sports minister at Rio Olympics and a central minister permitting his body guard to thrash security guards, are the cases in point;
(iv) No concrete steps taken to enhance the feel-good factor of the common man; (v) The public-at-large had high expectations from the present dispensation in areas like transparency, Services delivery mechanism, accountability and punishment for non-compliance of prescribed norms;
( vi)The Police and civic authorities do not respond without bribery. Complaints are not attended to, let alone acknowledged. These organizations are mentioned for having the largest public interfaces. This is the scenario in Delhi. Elsewhere, it is worse.
(vii) The brutal practices of UPA era, are returning with vengeance. At least, so it seems.

Public is feeling cheated. Was this kind of Good governance, promised to us by the NDA?

Theory of more marks is not sailable

Many officers opting for IRS and other services secured more marks than those officers who opted for IAS, so even this theory of more marks is not sailable for last 30 yrs atleast.

Action taken by Bar Council against Advocates

Information regarding the number of complaints against the advocates under section 35 of the Advocates Act for the past 10 years, the number of cases that were disposed of, the number of advocates alleged to have committed misconduct or unethical conduct as provisions of Advocates Act, 1961 etc was sought. The CIC directed the Bar Council of Punjab & Haryana, Chandigarh to furnish the information sought. The CIC further directed that the action taken under Section 35 by the Bar Council should be published under Section 4(1)(b) of the RTI Act on their own without anybody asking for it. The Commission also directed the First Appellate Authority of the Bar Council of Punjab & Haryana, Chandigarh to show cause why disciplinary action cannot be recommended against him for not taking up the first appeal of the appellant. The CIC observed that though the Bar Associations are different from Bar Councils, they are also constituted under a law made by Parliament, i.e., the Advocates Act, 1961. They too have a duty to inform the people about their activities.


The Bar Council is a statutory body constituted under Advocates Act 1961, to protect ethical standards of Advocates and admonish the members for misconduct. This order has implications for all similar bodies which oversee the professional conduct.
