When honesty garners punishment


It is often said that corruption threatens the morale of an entire country. With the Ashok Khemka episode recently, the deep-seated corruption in the Indian bureaucracy has come to the forefront. More importantly, it has also exposed the inherent nexus between politicians and bureaucrats which often sees closeness to a certain minister being rewarded with fancy positions for a bureaucrat and honesty being dealt with frequent transfer orders and unpleasantness.  In today’s milieu when an honest officer tries to take a firm decision of going against the personal wishes of higher-ups, he has to face dire consequences.  In this issue of Bureaucracy Today, we bring to you the untold stories of five such honest officers who refused to bow down before the ‘system’. As a result, they encountered transfers and harassment throughout their careers. We speak to YP Singh, former Commandant of the Maharasthra Reserve Police Force, Manoje Nath, former DG (Home Guards), Bihar, Arun Bhatia, former Pune Municipal Commisioner, C Umashankar , Commissioner for Disciplinary Proceedings, Chennai and Sanjiv Chaturvedi , Deputy Secretary AIIMS, to give you insights into the struggle of sincere  civil servants in our country.  We strongly believe that episodes such as these can force all well-meaning Indians to introspect and take a stand on serious national issues like that of corruption. It was high time the Government of India paid heed to IAC leader Arvind Kejriwal and his movement which is gaining momentum primarily because of the common man’s frustration at the “failure” of our system.  The PMO, the DoPT and the Cabinet Secretary need to rethink service rules and come up with newer ways to encourage honesty among government officers so that no official has to pay a price for being honest in future.  Our BT event this month features the felicitation of Atul Chaturvedi, the newly appointed Chairman of the Public Enterprises Selection  Board,  who will play a significant role in deciding the direction of our PSUs in future. His task is very important and Bureaucracy Today, therefore, wishes him all the best for the future.      Suhaib A. Ilyasi  Editor-in-chief
