A crusade against corruption


“Hope begins in the dark; the stubborn hope that if you just show up and try to do the right thing, the dawn will come. You wait and watch and work: you dont give up.” In a commendable action, both the Centre and the Bihar Government are taking stringent action against the foodgrains mafia and corrupt officials, taking cognizance of a report published in Bureaucracy Today’s January 2014 issue where we exposed the alleged multi-crore subsidised foodgrains scam in Bihar’s Bhojpur district. In this issue, we bring to our readers the laudable attempt of the Government to clean the system at a time when corruption has become an unchallenged way of life. For the public that has witnessed for far too long non-delivery on the “zero tolerance” policy, the Government’s spontaneous and swift action after the Bureaucracy Today report, is seen as a ray of hope, embodying the type of leadership we desire from our leaders. A legislation that makes food a right for the downtrodden may not be bad in spirit but there are glitches galore. There is a need for the Government to put in place institutional and technical safeguards to reduce corruption within its own system.  In an arbitrary action, ignoring the candidate selected by the PESB after due diligence for the post of BHEL Chairman and Managing Director, the PMO has given incumbent B P Rao a two-year post-retirement extension just a day before his superannuation. The action has surprised many and equally enraged a few. Our Cover Story investigates the issue and comes out with an insight report of how the arbitrary action of the Government could undermine the laid-down procedures for PSU appointments and have its repercussions on other PSUs like ONGC and IOC whose CMDs are due to retire in the next few months. Aiming at checking political interference and giving more teeth to bureaucrats, the Government has framed rules under which officers of the three premier All India Services — IAS, IPS and IFoS — will now spend a minimum of two years at each posting and any exception in the form of transfer or new appointment will only be done on the recommendation of a Civil Services Board. Bureaucracy Today Special Report scans the issue and also focuses on more far-reaching changes in the All India Service rules which are on the anvil.  Good infrastructure is essential for the growth and sustenance of any economy but there is a shocking state of affairs in the Ministry of Civil Aviation. When Bureaucracy Today delves deep into the issue of recent abrupt removal of AAI CMD V P Agrawal, the slack attitude of the Indian aviation sector and how business is being conducted at the top level when it comes to managing the aviation infrastructure in this country unveiled. Bureaucracy Today’s Bureaucrat of the Month for February 2014 is Khurshid Ahmed Ganai. The 1982-batch IAS officer of the Jammu and Kashmir cadre, who has been promoted to the apex grade of the IAS in January, was till recently on central deputation and worked as Additional Secretary in the Ministry of Home Affairs. During his tenure in the MHA, overcoming various obstacles, New Delhi achieved many milestones in India-Pakistan, India-Bangladesh and tourist visa policies.
