Today, two news items on law and order in Dwarka have been published. In the item in Dainik Jagran City Plus under heading “Chain-snatchings down by 70%”, ACP Mr. M S Randhawa informed that chain-snatchings are down by 70%. According to other item in Hindustan Times under heading “Crime-infested–65-yr-old shot at in Dwarka car snatching: (page 4) while trying to snatch Maruti Zen car from one Ramesh Bareja, 3-bike borne snatchers shot at him when he resisted. He luckily he survived but got seriously injured. After that, snatchers fled with his wallet, mobile phone and car. The family alleges that the nursing home where the police took him was not equipped to treat patients with bullet injuries. Though, Mr. Rajan Bhagat, spokesman, Delhi Police claimed “There is no point where the question of police inaction has risen. It was the police which took him to the hospital and he is satisfied,"

On 15th last month, 3 bike-borne-snatchers also forced 62-yr-old to hand them over his chain and ring under compelling circumstances to save himself and his grand daughter. Initially, a complaint was taken from the victim, Allegedly, the FIRs was registered after initial reluctance when there was some hue and cry, FRI was promptly registered. In the first incident, the victim is the brother-in-law of a High Court judge Ramesh Bareja. "It took him 20 minutes in a rickshaw to reach the nearest police station with the bullet still in his hand," Even as he bled, the police insisted on taking his statement before considering whether to take him to hospital or not. It was only after he called some senior police officers that they took him to the nursing home."

One such incident of firing shot to snatch the car is equal to many incidents (if not 70) of chain-snatching or pretty crimes. The snatchers have now no fear of law enforcing agencies. Now, the time has come when high authority should do something drastic to restore sense of security among Dwarkaites.

Lets save precious WATER NOW

Diwan Singh

Summers are right next door. We have a short memory and the months of rain and winter lulls us into inaction on water conservation front. Let’s remember that the problem of scarcity of water would only increase with time. A macro view can help us understand why this problem will persist. A published study by Dr. Vikram Soni tells us that the water requirements of our co basin states i.e Punjab, Haryana and U.P exceeds the current availability, and, resultantly, the ground water table is falling in these areas. The report by NASA, released a few months back, attest the same fear of alarmingly falling water table. The efforts by farmers in Jhajjhar, Haryana , who breached canal taking water to Gurgaon, reflect on the potential conflicts ahead.

All of us, especially Dwarkaites, have been waiting for extra water through just completed Munak Channel. But, recent reports on Haryana refusing to release extra water are indicator of things to come. Maybe, Delhi, being the power capital gets away with its problems for some temporary phase. But not for long. When people are pushed to wall, only realism works.

Our own ground water table in Dwarka is falling down rapidly and the quality of water too is becoming unbelievably hard, almost unfit for domestic consumption. Can we still afford to sit quiet and wait for disaster to strike us?

Its better that we start living within the limits of resources available. It would be wise that we all adopt rain water harvesting at large scale, not only in our societies but also pursue it towards developing it in the vast expanse of parks available in Dwarka. We also need to control our water usage. For a start, let’s put some filled up water bottles in our toilet cisterns. At least, this will ensure that a few litres less of water will be flushed every day. Some people should set example by reusing the bath waste water in the toilets. Many innovative ideas can further be explored by people at ground level. Lets do it!

A meeting of the residents of Dwarka was organized on Sunday, 21st Febrary which was also attended by the ACP, and SHO, Dwarka. On law and order situation, M.S. Randhawa, ACP informed that the incidents like snatching has come down by about 70% and the Police is working on putting more pickets and increase patrolling. He informed that the FIR on the forced snatching of gold chain and ring on 15th February from a senior citizen has been registered. Naveen Kumar, informed him that his laptop was snatched some time back and the FIR was registered after 14 days on his continuous follow-up. To this, ACP assured all co-operations in terms of the registration of FIRs.
On the demand of removal of encroachment, SHO instructed the staff to remove all temporary and permanently encroachments. He was informed that the residents do not make purchases from the unauthorized vendors and tea-sellers on encroached land but it is the labourers. SHO asked the residents to inform the MCD regularly for the removal of such encroachment, as it has the power. He also informed that the complaint against encroachment could also be lodged at PCR phone No. 100. Some residents also raised the issue of some restaurants, which are running openly on public utility areas of Manish Global mall in violation of all provisions. They also raised the safety issue and unhygienic condition created by such restaurants as the area near some restaurants is used for open drinking in the evenings.

The ACP asked the SHO to call the owner of the restaurant and ask him for adhering to the legal provisions. ACP informed that to prevent the open drinking near the wine shop of sector 20, the contractor has deputed two private guards and the police has also deputed some staff in addition to stationing the PCR from time to time.
On the complaints of theft of grills and other items from the DDA parks, ACP said that this is mostly being done accomplished by the drug addicts and asked the SHO to look in to the specific cases. On this occasion, Mr. Rejimon C K, President, Dwarka Forum informed the participants about the outcome of the meeting recently held with the MCD Commissioner, Shri K S Mehra. The participants has a unanimous view that the horticulture staff of DDA is found wanting as this is often found sitting ideal, sleeping and gossiping and whatever little work is undertaken, it was by the staff of contractors only. The guards deputed to protect them are not visible and the residents decided to write to DDA for starting bio-metric attendance system for ensuring their presence. They also demanded that the broken service roads of sector 22 should be set right. The demand for play ground for children was also raised to stop the misuse of gardens.
Concern over the lack of proper streetlight was also expressed and it was demanded that the new streetlights should be funded from the MLA Fund.

Capitulating to terrorists

Joginder Singh ji
( Former Director - CBI)

India is under siege from several nefarious forces. In the north of the country, terrorists funded and supported by Pakistan are playing havoc, while in the North-East, forces such as the United Liberation Front of Asom and its ilk are leaving no stone unturned to separate that region from the motherland. Terrorism, in its various forms, is literally bleeding us dry.

US Defence Secretary Robert Gates has said on more than one occasion that the ISI is playing both sides. That though Pakistan has committed itself to be part of the US-led war on terrorism, it continues to maintain links with the jihadis. Further, Mr Gates has asserted that the relationship Islamabad shares with terrorist groups is a “strategic hedge” as it is unsure who is going to win in Afghanistan.

Pakistani President Asif Ali Zardari has confessed that the Taliban was jointly created by the Inter-Services Intelligence and the Central Intelligence Agency. He has been absolutely candid in telling the Americans, “I think it was part of your past and our past, and the ISI and the CIA created them (the Taliban) together. We got together, we created this cancer to fight the superpower (the Soviet Union) and then we went away, rather, you went away without finding a cure for it. And now we’ve both come together to find a cure for it, and we’re looking for one.”

A US Congressional report, titled ‘Al Qaeda and Affiliates: Historical Perspective, Global Presence, and Implications for US Policy,’ released in the first week of February says, “US officials remain concerned that Al Qaeda terrorists operate with impunity in Pakistani territory, and that the group appears to have increased its influence among the myriad militant groups operating along the Pak-Afghan border, as well as in the densely populated Punjab province. Al Qaeda is widely believed to maintain camps in western Pakistan where foreign extremists receive training in terrorist operations... By one account, up to 150 westerners (Muslims) went to western Pakistan to receive terrorism training in 2009.”

US Vice-President Joe Biden, when asked as to which country worries him the most among Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan, and Pakistan, forcefully said Pakistan. His reasoning was that Pakistan had nuclear weapons that could easily be deployed. That it had a real significant minority of radicalised people and its democratic institutions were weak. Pakistan’s policy, right from its birth, has been to show India down. It has tried several tricks, like the four wars it has fought against India, sponsoring terrorism, whipping up communal hysteria and inciting the Muslim population in our country, etc. Even the hand of friendship that has been extended by New Delhi to Islamabad in the form of the scheduled Foreign Secretary-level talks is being misconstrued by the latter as a sign of weakness. India’s biggest problem is that we have no consistent policy towards dealing with Pakistan, except for ad-hocism.

The principal issue, as far as India is concerned, is the export of Pakistani terrorism to this country. Incidentally, Islamabad is trying to convince the Americans that this is a good thing! As skewed as it is, the logic that the Pakistanis are dishing out is that by diverting terrorism to India, they are actually helping the US cause in Afghanistan.

We are all aware that the biggest theatre of terror infiltration into India is the Kashmir Valley. Various hare-brained schemes have been tried by our Government to appease the terrorists and their supporters. Even compensation has been doled out to the relatives of slain terrorists. Needless to say, none of these schemes have worked. In yet another ridiculous move, the Government has endorsed a new surrender policy mooted by the Jammu & Kashmir Chief Minister. It is a sort of amnesty scheme under which Kashmiri terrorists in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir will be allowed to return home.

A former Chief Minister and the present Union Health Minister has raised objections to this policy on the ground that the decision, if implemented, will cause havoc if some people with ill motives came back to India. Indeed, attempts have been made even to use the bus service between Pakistan-occupied Kashmir and India to smuggle weapons.

On the other hand, no such scheme has been contemplated to rehabilitate the 3.7 lakh Hindus and Sikhs who were forced by the terrorists to leave the Kashmir Valley. Thus, in other words, our politicians are playing into Pakistani hands. There is no doubt that Islamabad’s main objective is to create a volatile communal situation in Jammu & Kashmir to the point that the voice of separatism in the State once again reaches fever pitch.

The Government prides itself in reiterating time and again that the principle of secularism is non-negotiable but has no qualms about following a policy of appeasing Pakistan and its agents fomenting trouble in India. Why can’t we be clear that those who do not accept the basic values enshrined in our Constitution and have voluntarily left the country to train themselves in anti-India activities have no place in our society? Meanwhile, over 200 Sikhs settled abroad are on the negative list and are regularly denied visas for visiting India on the ground that they protested against Operation Bluestar in 1984. The Government is ready to welcome dreaded terrorists who have settled in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir but refuses to give visas to NRIs whose action of peaceful protest 26 years ago it did not like.

Leaving all these issues aside, it should be clear to the Government of the day that one simply cannot deal with terrorism through a policy of appeasement. One has to break the backs of the terrorists and their masters before exploring negotiations. At present, the jihadis feel that they have the upper hand and that is why the Government of India is begging on bending knees for peace talks. There have been no takers for the Prime Minister’s offer of talks which was aimed at the separatist forces in Jammu & Kashmir.

When force is necessary, it must be applied boldly, decisively and completely. There is no better case and better time to apply it now. It is an undeniable truth that force rules the world, and not opinion; but opinion is that which enables use of force. Let the Government work on both.

Neighbourhood Ladies Get-Together for better Dwarka

NHLGT organized a meeting at Pragyajyotispur CGHS Plot 7 Sector 10 to discuss about the problems facing in sector 10, Dwarka. Along with the ladies senior citizens also took part in the discussion, one of the senior person requested for a two day a week vegetable and fruit market in a designated area given by the MCD so that they do not move from one street to another as the police drive them away due to security reason. The ladies also raised a point on the vacant plots infront of the YMCA and another in front of a school which has become a breeding places for all kinds of waste and garbage.,these places stink and become a breeding place for mosquitoes, flies and reptiles. In the evenings with no street lights these areas are used by all sorts of anti social and unwanted elements who keep passing filthy remarks on the passer by’s.

They also raised in problems of insufficient post office as there is only one post office in sector 6 for the whole of the subcity. They wanted to have more post offices and post boxes in every mall of each sector. The worst sufferers are women and senior citizen who come to the post office to draw their interest or deposit their savings as they have to bear the unending stressful wait and moreover there is also no proper parking place in sector 6 &10 and the cars are often taken away by the tow van .

Another issue was for a playground for children in every sector as it is essential for the growth of the children .

Mrs.Cicily Kodiyan the Chief Convenor and Mrs. RajiKurup Deputy Convener of NHLGT told that Dwarka is a well planned city with wide roads and plenty of parks. The government has also provided a number of offices like Horticulture, Electricity, Civil, MCD etc. If the people in theses offices do not work properly, we should remind them and make them to do the work for which we have to be like watch Dogs. We can make Dwarka a wonderful sub city should awaken the residents for community responsibility and social solidarity, and if we all join together we can make Dwarka a Paradise.

Mrs. Kodiyan requested them to organize a competition among children on Keeping Clean and Beautiful Dwarka . We should inculcate the habit and sense of cleanliness and beauty from the early age onwards. Mrs. Kodiyan also stated that in Pondicherry the government have given the poor farmers a permanent place to come and sell their wares and in return take small rents from them , so the middle person is not there to harass the poor farmer . We have a similar one at Dilli Haat , and we look forward to having a similar one in Dwarka too.

Mrs.Chakravarty, Dr.Mrs Kalita, Mrs.Meera Garg and Mrs. Anupama Bhatnagar came forward and thanked everyone who attended the meeting and offered their service towards the betterment of Dwarka.

 In the past, snatchers used to snatch cash and other costly items before running away but now they don’t snatch but stop you on the way on the pretext of asking some address. After forcing you to hand them over your belongings yourself, they run away. On 15th February, four miscreants robbed a senior citizen in Sector 22, Dwarka of his gold chain and ring in broad daylight. Initially, one offender on a scooter stopped 62-year-old Ajay Kumar, (name changed on request) a resident of Sector 22. His son, Amit (name changed) told that immediately after two more miscreants riding on the bike joined and one requested his father to buy the lottery ticket. When he expressed his inability stating that he does not have much cash, the robbers said ‘but you have gold chain and ring’ and forced him to hand these items to them.

The incident was brought to the knowledge of the Dwarka Forum and PCR by dialing 100, Forum President Rejimon CK immediately brought it to the notice of DCP and ACP by shooting emails. SHO, Dwarka, Bhagwan Singh sent an inspector on the same day to the victim’s house for taking the written complaint from the victim but now victim is waiting for the registration of FIR.

Now, it has been confirmed from the Police that an FIR has been registered and the it has also sent a copy of FIR at the residence of the victim. This indicates positive change of approach of the police.

The legal definition of dental malpractice varies from state to state. However, a general description of dental malpractice that is consistent from state to state would be described as medical malpractice for an injury due to negligent dental work, failure to diagnose or treat possible precarious oral conditions, delayed diagnosis or treatment of oral disease or other precarious oral conditions, false qualifications for marketing, as well as any malevolent or otherwise intentional misconduct on the dental professional's part.
Dentists, like other doctors, can face punitive and legal consequences if patients are not satisfied with the dental treatment. Like all other medical staff, dentists are under the obligation to comply with the legal rules in the country they practice. They also have to consider ethical principles as well as the acceptable standards and protocols of diagnosis and treatment.
Recently I came across a news clipping, which was printed in a famous dental journal and was authored by an eminent dentist in our field. A practicing dentist in Mumbai was issued an arrest warrant on the complaint of the patient. According to the patient, a housewife from Mumbai, the doctor’s claimed degrees as projected by him were misleading and were not recognized by the relevant authorities, in this case by the D.C.I. (Dental Council of India). The issue came to the forefront particularly since the promised treatment plan failed. The doctor had mentioned and flaunted international degrees in implantology and had used abbreviations of the same which as it turned out were not recognized by the council.
The case is reportedly a landmark case in the history of dentistry and law in India, but such has been the plight of the profession that such cases have been reported globally with an alarming rise with the increase in competition. In India it was the first time that a dentist was being pulled up for the use of abbreviations which are supposed to represent degrees or diplomas or even memberships but are not recognized by the dental council.
According to the dental council code of ethics it is binding for the dental professionals to refer to only those degrees which are from recognized universities and are approved by the DCI.
The mention of these memberships and affiliations on visiting cards, nameplates and boards or other material is specifically barred by the law, unless such degree is registered with the council. It is common today to see doctors mentioning a string of ‘degrees’ or other abbreviations, largely consisting of memberships of various dental organizations or bodies. If the word UK, USA or some other western country follow such abbreviations in brackets, the value of such abbreviation increases. In plain words dentists cannot write MIDA or FACD on their visiting cards, sign boards etc. as per DCI regulations. It is very important that our profession exercises self discipline in this regard.
The D.C.I. code of ethics 1976:

6. Unethical practices---The following shall be the unethical practices for a dentist, namely:-

(p) mentioning after the dentist’s name any other abbreviations except those indicationg dental qualifications as earned by bim during his academic career in dentistry and which conform to the definition of ‘recognised dental qualification’ as defined in clause (j)of section 2 of the Act, or any other recognized academic qualifications;

(q) using of abbreviations like (i) R.D.P. for Registered Dental Practitioner, (ii)M.I. D. A. for Member, Indian Dental Association, (iii) F.I.C.D. for Fellow of International College of Dentists, (iv) M.I. C.D. for Fellow or American College of Dentist, (vi) M.R.S.H. for member of Royal Society of Hygiene, etc., etc., and the like, which are not academic qualifications.

Another drawback is the fact that there is no way of knowing whether the certificate was obtained in 2 days or 2 months or even just by paying & not attending. With such cases on the rise & people falling prey to such cheap marketing tactics on a daily basis, this article is just a piece of advice for the educated yet uninformed.

Victory of just cause, RCS fall have to fall in line!

M.K. Gupta

Unfazed by the threats of RCS, the Maha Sammelan on 7.2.2010 on self-draw has announced to conduct self-allotment this week also. After reading the writing on the walls, the Delhi Government has called a ‘workshop’. The workshop will be chaired by the Chief Minister, Sheila Dikshit and will be attended by Ministers, Registrar of Co-operative Societies, top govt. officials and members of the CGHS to untie the deadlock by discussing the issue threadbare and face to face.
Hope, the issue of draw in CBI cleared societies will be resolved soon and the harassed members may be able to celebrate this Holi, after over 5 years, in a less tense atmosphere. This has been possible by the stand taken by Members of Parliament, A B Bardhan, Mahabal Mishra, MLA Dharam Dev Solanki and Ashok Kumar and his team leading the movement against the injustice met to them. I was of the view from the very beginning that the self-allotment will prompt the allotment process by putting the RCS on the back foot. Need of the hour is to maintain unity. After these allotment is made and the members shifts to their flats, the Dwarka will be livelier and will buzz with activities.

PIL or Public Interest litigations have become the flavour of the season. It is probably rightly so, as when some concerned citizens, find that the Government for whatever reasons, is dragging its feet, on any issue of public importance, this is the only way left to prod it. A Public Interest Litigation has been filed in the Supreme Court, alleging inaction on the part of the Government for bringing back the black money stashed in the foreign banks. A Political Party had made it as an election issue before 2009, that if voted to power, it would bring back the black money stashed abroad. According to one report attributed to Swiss Banking Association report, of 2006 details bank deposit by the
TOP FIVE countries are as

If this report is to be believed India with $1,456 billion or $1.4 trillion has more money in Swiss banks than rest of the world combined. Incidentally the figure might have changed, as the figure quoted above are four years old. However, Dev Kar, lead author of 'Illicit Financial Flows from Developing Countries 2002-2006' says
"The range of illicit outflows from India is actually between $22.7 billion and $27.3 billion per year." The report by Global Financial Integrity - a Washington-based think tank - was released in December, 2008.

It is a global report and India is only a part of it," He also added that overall nobody knew for certain how much money from India was really being transferred abroad

His report is based on a five-year data from 2002 to 2006, while the figures quoted by a political party go back to the entire period of post-independent India, by multiplying the figure into the number of years. Even if the lower figure of 5 years is taken, it shows that the average amount stashed away from India annually during 2002-06 is $27.3 billion (about 136,466 crore). It means that during the five-year period the amount stashed away is 27.3x5=136.5 billion (about 692,328 crore).
It is not that all these amounts might have gone to Swiss banks. It might have gone to different tax and secret heavens. If we put the share of Swiss banks as a third of the global aggregate, some $45 billion out of the 136.5 billion stashed away from India would have been hoarded in these years in Swiss banks.

There are more than 70 tax havens in the world, including Switzerland Liechtenstein/Luxemburg/ Channel Islands and many others. As per the USA Internal Revenue Intelligence, 40 tax heavens aggressively market themselves. While it is in order to take up the matter of bringing money stashed abroad to India, it is equally vital to make a study as to what has led to this phenomenon and whether our own laws are coming against getting the same back. It is true that India has no control over the countries, where such money has been stashed. We have to act within our own and other country’s legal frame work. Our own system has led to the generation of the black money.

The well known methods of generating and stashing money abroad or even in India include under invoicing/over invoicing of exports and imports and getting the balance stored abroad. Kickbacks from major defense/civilian contracts are not uncommon. They have been more than once exposed by our media. This is apart from the money hoarded from the old days, from the smuggling of gold and silver. Even the entertainment industry amasses the money earned by it abroad. This is apart from hundreds of other ways of earning illegal and accumulating money.
Nobody can fault with the objectives underlying the petition made to the Supreme Court. But the basic point, as to why no steps were taken or even now taken to end the menace has neither been reviewed nor examined nor pointed out the public interest litigation. The Government has still not taken any concrete steps ( Or if taken are weak and ineffective) to prevent the money from flying to tax heavens. The standards methods of under /over invoicing of exports and imports and getting the balance stored abroad have not been either improved or lapses therein rectified. Allegations of kickbacks from major defense/civilian contracts are still rampant.
Why go far off. Instead let us have a look at a recent kick back drama in a Government run organisation, National Thermal Power Corporation
The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has unearthed evidence of alleged kickbacks of $21.6 million (Rs 100 crore) and Rs 3.33 crore by a Russian company, Techno promo export (TPE), to Indian agents to secure a Rs 2,066 crore power project contract. Following the revelation, the ministries of power and external affairs have recommended termination of the contract, citing "fraudulent practice" and "delay in execution". It happened in November, 2009. "The CBI report is very clear that TPE paid illegal gratification to unknown officials of NTPC and others through their Indian agents to win this contract, thereby violating the contract and breaking the law of the land. No heads have rolled and the standard explanation would be that let the law its course and only after the court case is over, Or action will be taken against the guilty, in due course.
· In February, 2010, the Income Tax Department discovered that an IAS officer of Chattishgarh was found to have a staggering 220 bank accounts several of them opened on fake names and addresses, and a few in the names of his domestic helps. Total deposits in these accounts were Rs. 40 crore, independent from other assets worth millions of rupees. Others items found included Cash: Rs. 52 lakh Jewellery: Rs. 72 lakh.
· From another IAS, couple in Madhya Pradesh, the Income Tax Department recovered Rupees four cores in cash.
These are the representative and latest samples of neo rich bureaucrats, who have been encashing their offices and charging the public, for doing services to it, which should come free as a matter of right. Indeed, the laws, as they stand, are sleighted in favour of the corrupt, dishonest, cheats and fraudsters. The way, the laws provide one appeal after another, and take two to three decades for disposal of cases, due to heavy pendency, the Government and the public suffers double whammy.
Though article 311 of the Constitution provides for summary dismissal, not even in one case, an IAS or IAS Or other Government employee has been dismissed. Indeed after 6 to 9 months, some of the suspended government employees get as much as 90% of their salary. Most of them manage to persuade the powers that be, that instead of just paying them the salary, the Government should reinstate them and get some work from them. Once back, even to innocuous jobs, their cycle of making money starts again which is used to hire expensive counsels, to help them escape on technical grounds.
Another layer of protection to the senior officials is the law, which requires that prior sanction of the Government of India, is required for even starting an anti corruption inquiry against the officers of the level of the Joint Secretaries and above. This almost amounts to asking a thief, for permission, that whether his activities could be investigated.
Apart from that unpractical and unenforceable laws lead to the generation of the black money. For example no property deal can be completed, without a substantial portion as a black or unaccounted as a vital component. It is not a top secret, but a well known reality. But nothing has been done in this direction.

It is not that there is a dearth of money in the country and so we cannot alleviate poverty and ameliorate the life of the poor. It is because there is siphoning off at every level and the Government simply sitting and watching and exclaiming that the law will takes its own course. It has the power and authority to rid the country of the scourges of corruption and black money plaguing it. Only, it has to have the will, to do it and not seek for alibis, to put off the evil day.
