Heroes of Local Bodies of Dwarka?

Vijay K. Saluja

Identification , Feting them & Telling their stories

Presently, our cities-colonies, markets, open spaces, traffic, transportation system, parking lots, basic services & other infrastructure etc etc are in a big mess. Mess is becoming bigger, day by day. Urban local bodies are the prime public bodies, whose duty/responsibility, is to take care of the state of our cities. But, unfortunately due to many reasons[some of these are, corruption, ineptitude, political interference, lack of motivation with the right qualified persons to join local bodies, wastage of already scarce municipal funds, non-accountability, non participation, lack of transparency, minimum scrutiny, presence of power groups resulting in inequitable resource[already scarce] allocation, due to self-interests, poor governance etc etc] , these[ULB`s] are not able to or not taking the needed actions to bring in efficiency & improve matters. The result is evident-Poor quality of life in most of the areas of our cities, metros in particular & non-inclusiveness, therein.

But, despite many constraints as described above, certain persons employed in the urban local bodies are producing good results/sticking their neck out, for optimum utilization of municipal funds.

To identify some of them annually, by a transparent process by assessing & grading their good performance, despite all odds, can be good morale-booster for them. After identification they may be feted at a public function. In the said function they can be feted in the following manner-
Giving a medal & a citation
Token prize money

After that, tell their stories at various fora & through various mode of media, so that they become `Role-Models`, for others, who may emulate their initiatives/actions. It is felt, it may/ will motivate the other local bodies & their personnels to improve their performance & thus obtain better quality of life for the inhabitants of the area under their jurisdiction. To start with we can consider persons from local bodies, operating in DWARKA.

This is one positive way[ though, there can be, as many other ways], to my mind, by which, we may be able to achieve the averred objectives of having better GOVERNANCE of DWARKA .

CAN WE AVERT THE ACCIDENTS? Answer is YES!

Vijay K. Saluja

Ram Nath was watching his favourite TV programme,` Laughter Show`, when he recd a call, on his mobile. Since that call, Ramnath is not the same person,happy-go-lucky?! His world has somersaulted towards HELL!? The caller informed that his only son, RAVI- seventeen years old, had been involved in a serious road-accident & was removed by the police to a hospital. He stayed in injured condition on the road for more than an hour, as no on-lookers, who were in plenty, did any thing to give him succour/help?!
Incidents, like the one above have become very common & normal features in our mega-cities. Accidents & deaths are on the increase. Two accidents. involving BMW cars, are very recent cases of deaths/serious injuries on roads.
As it causes massive miseries to, the affected parties, it is time, to do some thing concrete, by all the stake-holders.
Who are the stake holders?
You, me, the community & various wings of the Govt-local, state, central, its various organizations, civil society groups., educational/training institutions, media, international organisations, too.
Why do accidents occur? It does not need much explaining. But, the main reason is the negligence of human beings, itself. In the case of Ram Nath, he did not bother to ensure that his under-age son did not take, his newly car for a drive, to show off to his friends. He even did not bother that, his son did not possess the valid driving license. Fake driving license, he had helped his son, to obtain, using money-power & contacts`!Result of the same was there to see.
What were the authorities doing, when license was issued to untrained & under-age persons?
Collusion is the name of the game. Today, it is Ram Nath, tomorrow, it could be you, me or son of a license issuing official, or a powerful politician or a senior bureaucrat? Accidents do not recognize the protocol or influence?!
Compromising on principles, non-enforcement of laid down traffic rules, casualness, speed are some of the main reasons, for increase of accidents.
It is therefore very imperative, that persons of impeccable integrity are put on the sensitive jobs. Some may say, most of the govt jobs are sensitive .Yes, these are, but some are certainly, more than the others. Traffic policing falls in that category.
Let us also face it squarely ,there is corruption . This is one of the main cause of accidents. I personally consider, Corruption as the HIV/AIDS of our administrative system.
Compromising on the state of fitness of vehicles, issuing of licences, booking of traffic offenders, apathy in construction & maintenance of roads & attendant infrastructure-proper geometry, signages, lighting, by some of the concerned local authorities- officials/engineers are other reasons for accidents.
One can understand, if India was short of working hands, then there was no alternative but, to continue with the corrupt, careless, un-trained people in various organizations of the govt is not understandable.As, we in India, do not have problem of shortage of human resources
When will `sarkari`, means real no-nonsense business/profession? At the moment, it only means-one can even get away with murder, if one has contacts/money!? How sad for the country & aam admi?
The bureaucracy & the judiciary need to play very very vigilant & strict role, in the area of dealing with offenders-merchants of death.. Decisions have to be quick & un-biased.
Be-sides, community ,media, & civil society groups, will have to play pro-active positive role.
Thought provoking films need to be made & screened on TV to sensitise the citizens/community. In schools & in colleges, curricula should have space for imparting education, on need for values & ethics. Acquisition of money, by any means, need to be denigrated.
There need to be control on expanding numbers of vehicles on roads. Not, that no to Nano, but control?
Public transport need to be made efficient. In this connection, one really wonders, why it took so long to enforce fitting of governors in buses. Even now reports are there that the same are being manipulated/fiddled with, and authorities looking the other way?!

Take it for granted, there are no miracles going to happen, to minimize accidents. The System, need/have to be [made] accountable, sensitive, responsible and responsive, on a sustainable basis.
There is no other way.
In my article, I have not quoted findings of national/international studies, on causes of accidents & remedial measures. Because, I personally feel, solution lies with all of us We all know it. The need is to implement the solutions rigorously. This is also true, for other areas of administration/governance.

Big talk, little action makes us scam-prone

Sh. Joginder Singh ji
(Former Director - C.B.I.)
Jan. 27 : In the Rs 7,000-crore Satyam scam the company's chairman B. Ramalinga Raju has admitted to a financial fraud that went on for several years. He has also disclosed that the company's balance-sheet is a fabrication. Mr Raju, his brother, as well as Satyam's chief financial officers, are now under arrest.
There has been a lot of glib talk about effective and transparent corporate governance and a system of institutionalised checks and balances. The role of checks and balances is best illustrated in the thriller Silver Blaze where Sherlock Holmes probes the theft of an expensive racehorse on the eve of an important race. Asked whether there is any point on which Holmes wants to draw the Scotland Yard detective's attention, Holmes points to "the curious incident of the dog in the night-time". The detective says the dog did nothing in the night, to which Holmes replies, "The dog made no noise because he knew the thieves well". Perhaps, this explains why Satyam's internal and external auditors didn't squeak.
The truth is that even government companies and organisations do not function as models of probity and efficiency because of continuous interferences, not only in taking decisions but also in awarding contracts and misuse of funds by those who remote-control them from their seats of power.
When the infamous Harshad Mehta scam took place, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, who was the finance minister at that time, described it as a failure of the system and had declared that steps would be taken to rectify the situation and plug loopholes. Then came the Ketan Parekh scam and now the Satyam scam. Each new scam seems to be overtaking the previous one and yet there is no single agency to deal with frauds in the corporate sector.
One problem is that enforcement is split — there's the serious fraud investigation office, department of company affairs, Sebi and the police. The police comes in only in the final scene and can take action only for the offences of cheating and fraud. A police case means a long-drawn affair which may take up to 10 years for the case to be tried, heard and the judgment passed.
There is hardly any worthwhile punishment for scamsters, their collaborators and the internal policeman — the auditor. The Companies Act lays down the auditor's duties and powers, but the penalty for non-performance is puny. If an auditor fails in his duties, the maximum penalty is a fine of Rs 10,000.
Incidentally, PricewaterhouseCoopers, the firm which audited Satyam's books, received a consolidated audit fee of Rs 4.3 crores for the financial year 2007-08 — almost twice of what Satyam's peers like TCS, Infosys and Wipro pay to their auditors. Satyam's promoters and others who have benefited could not have done so if there was fear of being found out by the auditors. According to one report, about Rs 800 crores was made by insider-trading and sale of shares.
Many Ketan Parekhs, Harshad Mehtas and Satyam scams which will surface if company auditors are willing to put their neck on the line and risk losing business. But it is doubtful if anybody in his business would commit harakiri.
According to the company law, there is a maximum fine of Rs 5,000 and imprisonment of upto two years for fudging accounts. The Companies Act provides for a special audit, investigation, reconstitution of the board of directors and even a "dawn raid". But the penalties for non-compliance are as good as non-existent. Besides, there is no mechanism even for checking corporate balance-sheets and account statements.
Those who do not learn from history are condemned to repeat it. The investigation into the Enron fraud had also shown its auditor, Arthur Andersen, of being as guilty as the Enron CEO.
The corporate scene is not as rosy as it is made out to be. No doubt there are a very good companies with impeccable record, but the same cannot be said for a majority of companies. Failures are bound to happen in any business, but any malfunctioning and crash based on a false rosy picture in which the shareholders are cheated is totally unacceptable.
While it is correct that the government has no business to interfere in how a private businessman conducts his business, the fact is that no business can become really big without the participation and investment of the public, government-supported financial schemes, institutions and banks.
Therefore, a mass of people, however gullible they may be, cannot be allowed to be taken for a ride by a few devious and unprincipled individuals. Too much government interference can kill the goose that lays golden eggs, but we must remember that conmen have existed from times immemorial and would continue to exist.
The loser in any scam is the common man and it is for the government to ensure that it is easier for the corporate sector to do what's right and difficult to do what's wrong. What is the point of having so many watchdogs and talk about good corporate governance when the country's fourth-largest IT company can easily defraud and take millions of people for a ride?
The government must decide what it needs do to end such occurrences in the future, and do it. It's as simple as that. The government should remember what Indira Gandhi once said: "My grandfather once told me that there are two kinds of people: those who work and those who take the credit. He told me to try to be in the first group; there was less competition there".

Latest updates on allotment of flats

As you know that after a great battle, the draw of lots of Group Housing Societies has started taking place. But still we have to go a long way till all the societied are cleared. After the notification which came on 31st July, 2008, the Screeing Committee has cleared only 12 societes till date, whose draw have been conducted by the DDA. These societies are as under:-

1. JAWAHAR LAL CGHS LTD. PLOT NO 9, SECTOR 5, DWARKA
2. ENTREPRENEURS CGHS LTD. SECTOR -22 , DWARKA
3. SURANGANI CGHS LTD. GEETA COLONY
4. ASHOKA ENCLAVE CGHS LTD., PLOT NO. 8-A SECTOR 11 DWARKA
5. DDA ENGINEERS CGHS LTD. PLOT NO. 26 SECTOR - 4 ,DWARKA NEW DELHI-75
6. SWAMI DAYANAND CGHS LTD , SECTOR 6, DWARKA, NEW DELHI
7. THE GOLD CRAFT CGHS LTD. SECTOR-11, DWARKA, NEW DELHI
8. THE SANMATI CGHS LTD. , SECTOR 6 , DWARKA, NEW DELHI
9. THE GREAT LYALPUR CGHS LTD. . SECTOR 10, DWARKA, NEW DELHI
10. GANDHI ASHRAM CGHS LTD. , SECTOR 10, DWARKA, NEW DELHI
11. DELHI TRANSPORTERS CGHS LTD.,SECTOR 2, DWARKA, NEW DELHI
12. MANAGEMENT ALUMNI CGHS LTD. , SECTOR 5, DWARKA

There had been no meeting of Screening Committee for last 2 months and a number of societies (mainly Viswas CGHS, Nav Nirman CGHS, Bharat Petroleum, Saral etc etc) are waiting for the approval/clearance. The committee took four months to clear these 12 societies and you can well imagine that how long time it will take to clear all the societies.( around 15000 families of 110 societies are waiting for draw of lots) To expedite the process, a delegation of different societies, met the Chief Minister on 14th January, 2009.. She has assured that the process of clearance of societies will be expedited. She also spoke to the Chairman of the Committee and requested him to do the needful. Still we need to do a lot for the early allotment of our flats failing which the affected members will have to wait for a long long time to get their flats due the lethargic attitude on part of the RCS, Screening Committee and finally DDA.

Strengthen first line of defence


Sh. Joginder Singh ji
(Former Director - C.B.I.)

All illusions, if there were any, have been junked by the Prime Minister in his speech at the recent Conference of Chief Ministers about the source of terrorism in India and the support of the Government of Pakistan to the same. On January 6, he unambiguously said that the 26/11 terrorist attack on Mumbai was clearly carried out by Pakistan-based outfit Lashkar-e-Tayyeba. On the basis of the investigations carried out, which include inputs by intelligence agencies of foreign countries whose nationals were killed by the fidayeen, there is enough evidence to suggest that given the sophistication and military precision of the attacks, they must have had the support of some official agencies in Pakistan.

The Prime Minister added that we face a severe challenge from terrorist groups operating from outside the country, and that many of them act with the support of hostile foreign intelligence agencies. These terrorist forces have been trying to exploit our vulnerability, and at times they have succeeded in their goals, killing and maiming hundreds of innocent civilians.

Our problems are compounded by the fact that we have a highly unpredictable and uncertain security environment in our immediate neighbourhood. The Governments in some of our neighbouring countries are not very stable. The more fragile a Government, the more it tends to act in an irresponsible manner. Pakistan's responses to our various démarches are obvious examples.

This is not the first time that India has laid the blame for the malaise of terrorism at Pakistan's door. For almost every terrorist attack on our soil Pakistan is responsible one way or another, whether it be providing training or logistical support to the terrorists. The only solution, our hawks advocate, is war with Pakistan. But war is no solution to terrorism, as can be seen by the examples of Afghanistan and Iraq, and our own past wars with Pakistan. On the other hand, this doesn't mean that we cannot strengthen our country's security and intelligence-gathering infrastructure to combat terrorism. The Prime Minister has admitted that our defence mechanisms are inadequate and need to be overhauled.

There may be criticism that the range of instruments that we possess to deal with internal security threats is not sufficient. This may not be totally unjustified. There is a pressing need to review the effectiveness of our security set-up for the collection of communication intercepts and human intelligence. The training and equipment provided to our security forces also need careful review.

There is little doubt that our intelligence collection is deficient and so is our preparedness to deal with terror threats. I do not know whether it is due to ignorance or apathy, or a mixture of both. In 2008 the then Union Home Minister, while replying to a question in the Rajya Sabha, had admitted that there were 25 to 30 per cent vacancies in various police forces of the country. Look at Maharashtra, which has borne the brunt of terrorism. According to its then Home Minister, last year 11,000 police posts remained vacant. The current strength of the State Police force is 1,31,000 and there is a need for another 55,000 personnel. Assam, another State severely affected by terrorism, has as many as 7,776 vacancies in different police categories. Similarly, Chhattisgarh has about another 7,000 vacancies.

Not surprisingly, our country has one of the lowest police-to-population ratios in the world. As against a UN international norm of 222 policemen per lakh of population, India has just 143 policemen for the same number of people. This works out to just 14,000 police stations for more than 6.5 lakh villages. In most Western countries, the figure is between 250 and 500. Italy and Mexico, two countries with strong mafia and underworld presence, have 559 and 492 policemen per lakh of their population respectively. According to the latest figures compiled by the Centre, there were more than 1.3 lakh vacancies in the police all over our country. Even out of this nearly 15 to 20 per cent are diverted for VIP security.

New counter-terrorism mechanisms require more information, intelligence and technology, and latest sophisticated weapons. The State police forces, that are our first line of defence against the menace of terrorism, need to be strengthened in numbers as well as in equipment and training to meet the challenge.

The Comptroller and Auditor-General's report for 2006-07 tabled in the Andhra Pradesh State Assembly says: "Given the magnitude of extremist activity in the State, requirement of AK 47, 7.62 mm Self-Loaded Rifle, nine mm carbines, and 5.5 mm pistols for police stations were projected in the perspective plan 2001-05 to improve the striking capability of the police force and Rs 45.71 crore was sanctioned during 2002-07. Most of the equipment was procured only during 2005-06. In all the police stations of test checked districts it was observed that they continued to depend on outdated weapons like 0.410 muskets and 0.303 rifles, with majority of weapons being kept at the district headquarters. The State Government did not release its matching share (Rs 98.9 crore in 2002-03 to 2005-06). The percentage of utilisation of funds in the year of sanction was very low at 13 to 38 per cent".

The above report is only an illustration of prevails all over the country. The real problem that India faces in combating terrorism is our unprepared police force. Beyond doubt once a person joins the police force, after initial training it is rare for him to be exposed to a refresher course. But no overhauling of our security system will be effective without improving the capacities and capabilities of our police force.

Thus, instead of searching for elusive terror training camps in Pakistan, we should simply put our own house in order. Before we point finger at others, let us strengthen our own defence mechanisms and start at ground-level policing and then work our way up. We must put an end to terrorism, or terrorism will end us.

Loneliness

Why does this loneliness eat me up?
Why does it follow me
Everywhere-

To the divine city of Rome,
to ethereal and the most magnificent city of Lima and
to the most beautiful paradise city of San Francisco.

Why does one only wait
For the happiness to come?
Why do you and I wait
to be happy?

Isn't it all inside of us?

Then why not soak ourselves in it,
In its warmth and
In its glory?
