Poll-reform of one-person
Dear Editor, It refers to unnecessary spent of valuable court-timings of Division Bench of Supreme Court presently hearing a petition requiring a person not to contest from more than one seat, or for both Lok Sabha and Vidhaan Sabha. It is indeed regretting that matter of such a simple poll-reform had to reach Apex Court because of reluctance of political rulers of successive regimes to implement it in name of never-to-be-achieved political consensus. Rather section 33(7) of the Representative Act, 1951 which earlier allowed a person to contest unlimited seats must have restricted for one seat when it was amended to restrict such contesting from two seats. Faulty provision benefitted misusers like the then Delhi Chief Minister Madanlal Khurana who while contesting simultaneously for bot...

Vehicles need to pass speed breakers test
Dear Editor, All the new Cars / vehicles need to pass Speed breakers test-without any jerk in India. Is that possible? As even Delhi High Court had directed agencies, civic bodies in June 2016 and further recently to remove all speed breakers that do not conform to regulation or are unauthorized……also said that plastic or PVC speed breakers must be removed if they fail to conform to the guidelines and if they haven’t been cleared by the Traffic Police. This order is not complied with in most of roads including inside roads of most colonies. There is no action on contempt of courts, which is a dangerous for law and order problem as many others will not follow court’s order on other issues too. Due to non- standardized speed breakers speed breakers aggravates one's back ache which is dang...

Erring private hospitals
Dear Editor, It is a known and bitter fact that private hospitals have become money-making industrial institutions through their negligent and inhuman attitude. There are reports that employed super-specialists are given daily targets of business for profiteering of hospitals when treatments are done irrespective of their actual needs. People going only for some tests etc are unnecessarily alarmed for some serious disease to ensure admission to hospital even without any need. Recent two cases of raising exorbitant bill of rupees sixteen lakhs by Fortis Hospital Gurugram also charging disproportionately for consumables like gloves and syringes, and giving body of a live child wrapped as dead child by Max Hospital (Shalimar Bagh) are two such media-highlighted examples even though such ex...

Corrective ways needed
Dear Editor, It refers to Union Minister for Personnel and Training (DoPT) in annual CIC-convention held on 06.12.2017 at Vigyan Bhawan (New Delhi) talking aggressively on misuse of RTI Act in an which was unfitting for the occasion. The minister was not even aware of present vacancies at post of Commissioners at Central Information Commission and delaying appointment of a Chief Information Commissioner for months while criticising the earlier government for the same. According to the minister even such unusual delay was not fit for an RTI application to grill the government, even linking god as subject-matter of some future RTI application. His argument for filing RTI applications only for self-interest could perhaps not unseated earlier government with RTI Act being instrumental in exp...

Politics of personal attacks
Dear Editor, It is shocking that Prime Minister Narendra Modi was called a "neech aadmi “by Mani Shankar Aiyar. The Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi asked Mr. Aiyar to apologies to the Prime Minister. My Aiyar apologized too. Rightly he is suspended from Congress. But question is how low our politicians have gone down. In March 2017 also political scene was the worse –dirtiest thing as personal attack were made in public by politician. There is no improvement on this low attitude. Politicians just do not have anything worth allegations / policy matter of political parties to make a comment / condemn! Such silly remarks lead to the controversy to the extent, never expected. In public ‘Sabhya bhasha ka istamall zaroori hai.’ Strangely the media particularly TV starts a debate on wor...

Advertisement on Haryana Health Minister
Dear Editor, Delhi Medical Association (DMA) has given advertisements in leading newspapers objecting to statement of Haryana Heath Minister Anil Vij calling death by medical negligence in a hospital as murder. DMA has also tried to justify its stand on declaring a live new-born child dead by giving argument that it was better if pre-matured child could not survive. But DMA is silent on many other important aspects of these private hospitals adopting every type of tactics for profiteering including not providing mandatory OPD facility for poor, and more importantly asking suppliers to print especially high Maximum-Retail-Price (MRP) which otherwise are available in the market on much-much less price. Even generic medicines available in market have some times MRP which provides exorbitan...

Deplorable condition of government schools
Dear Editor, Benjamin Franklin once said, “An investment in knowledge pays the best interest.” Despite the fundamental importance to education in Indian constitution under Art. 21-A and RTE Act 2009, which describes the modalities of the importance of free and compulsory education for children between 6 to 14 years of age, the state of Jammu and Kashmir is failing to set stage to provide basic amenities for erudition and quality education to nurture the students. Majority of the students in the state still depend on government schools but the lack of infrastructure is leading to sustainability in dropout rate especially the girl student. Inadequate infrastructure in schools is a big barrier to enrollment and participation. A female teacher while sharing her experience said: “forget cle...

Non-availability of water in Bhalwal
Dear Editor, The PHE department day in and day out are making tall claims of supplying water at door steps in every nook and corner of the state but on ground the situation is quite contrary to their claims, in many areas the water is not being supplied for days together due to which the people are suffering multiple types of problems. In village Bhalwal in particular the water is supplied from Pata (Barn) pumping station. The tap water is supplied in highly irregular manner, as of now in Bhalwal, Mandi in Jammu tehsil the water has not been supplied for more than fifteen days as such the people living there are being made to suffer undue hardships to meet their bare minimum daily needs so much so that they men, women and children have to go to answer the call of nature be the open fi...

Corrective ways needed but not as advocated by the minister

Noble move against dowry
Dear Editor, Bihar Chief Minister while attending marriages only without dowry, has rightly suggested to print on wedding-cards if marriage being without dowry. Bihar Deputy Chief Minister in a departure from tradition, organized marriage of his son in daytime without any pomp and show, ornate arrangements, musical bands or feasts. All guests were requested not to bring gifts. It may be recalled that the then Delhi Chief Minister Shiela Dixit pledged to boycott mega-budgeted functions. But otherwise marriages in political families in general are ugly show wealth with leading politicians cutting across party-lines attending such lavish marriage-functions. Since Supreme Court has taken extreme in public-interest to interfere in even most celebrated religious festival of Deepawali by bann...

Hearing on Ram Janmbhoomi at SC
Dear Editor, It refers to some parties through their counsels on 05.12.2017 at Supreme Court making plea to postpone on-going Ram Janmbhoomi case till next 2019-elections for Lok Sabha are over. Delaying tactics for postponing a court-case in itself is a self-confession for a lost case for those demanding such postponement. The bench hearing the case rightly turned down the plea. Likewise plea for intervention by some ones is also such delaying tactics to prolong arguments. It is time that such an important issue affecting political system in the country, may be finally decided at the earliest. —Madhu Agrawal, 1775 Kucha Lattushah Delhi....

Rewriting IT Laws
Dear Editor, As per reports The Income Tax Act is to be re-written for simplification and better compliance. The irony with the government is that to simplify tax matters it makes it most complicated perhaps keeping in view loss of revenue or thinking that all citizens are dishonest as regard to taxes! The fact is that the overall total tax burden of all the taxes- a citizen pays is perhaps highest in India. And in turn citizens do not get required / expected services from the government. The recent experience with GST implantation has proved that the government fails to achieve its objective at least at first instance. It should be introduced with due preparation and considerations for the changed times and Rupee worth in the market; and better to put it for some time open for publi...

RBI should altogether abolish concept of foreclosure charges
Dear Editor, Reserve Bank of India in an RTI response dated 03.09.2009 had mentioned that RBI does not approve policy of foreclosure-charges on pre-payment of loans, but keeping short of issuing any directives. But subsequently foreclosure-charges in respect of home-loans were abolished by an RBI directive dated 05.06.2012 but only in respect of banks and not for Non-Banking-Financial-Companies (NBFC). However NBFCs themselves abolished foreclosure-charges in respect of home-loans due to their competition with banks in loan-business. RBI through its circular dated 07.05.2014 abolished foreclosure-charges for all types of loans given by banks to individuals followed by another circular dated 14.07.2014 abolishing foreclosure charges being charged by NBFCs from individuals also but only o...
