Petitioning President a click away

NEW DELHI: Rashtrapati Bhavan is coming closer to the common man with a little help from technology.
President Pratibha Patil launched a helpline portal that will not only allow citizens to register their grievances online but track them to various ministries as well. The portal will allow people to petition the President directly. The portal — — promises to process petitions and direct them to relevant departments within seven working days. "This portal is the beginning of a new chapter in Rashtrapati Bhavan. We receive an average 400 petitions per day from people. We have set up this portal so that people have a mechanism by which they know what is happening to their petition," said Christy Fernandez, secretary to the President.

Proceedings of the Circle Working Committee meeting held on 26.07.09

The proceedings of the Circle Working Committee meeting held on 26.07.2009 at Bhubaneswar are reproduced below for information of members.

The Circle Working Committee meeting of the Association was held in the Recreation Club of Bhubaneswar GPO to-day i.e. 26.07.2009. Sri Sreekant Kar, President of the Association was in the Chair. The Circle branch of the Association was privileged to have the presence of Sri S B Mohapatra, CHQ President in the CWC meeting.

The business of the CWC was held as per the scheduled programme. Discussions held and unanimous decisions taken in the CWC were as under:

  1. The members expressed their resentment regarding the Govt.’s apathy to accept the demand of the Association to upgrade the Pay scale of IPs who have been equated with BCR PAs who are drawing the same Grade Pay. The quantum and quality of work carried out by the IPs are much higher than the BCR PAs. The members were unanimous to take up the matter at the appropriate level through CHQ.
  2. The members felt that there should be reorganization of the Sub-Divisions. The number of inspection days especially that of BOs and NDTOs should be increased in view of the new items of work added to the BOs and other offices. More Sub-Divisions should be created to facilitate effective supervision by IPs/ASPs. Directorate should take immediate steps to create more posts of IPs and ASPs to manage the work of Technology and Business Development related work. Status quo of the Sub-Divisional Heads should continue as it is at present. Moreover, there should not be more than 50 offices under a Sub-Divisional Head.
  3. When members of our Association are officiating in PSS Gr.B cadre for more than one year, they are not allowed to draw their annual increment in the higher officiating post by DA(P). Members unanimously expressed their resentment over the matter and hence, it was decided to take up the matter at appropriate level by Circle Association.
  4. Incentives for procuring PLI business by IPs/ASPs in inordinately delayed. There is instance of non-drawal since 2006-07. This is to be taken up with Circle Administration.
  5. Abnormal delay in issue of Premium Bonds in respect of RPLI policies procured places the Sub-Divisional Heads in a very delicate position. They face the wrath of insurants when they tour different places in their Sub-Divisions. The matter needs to be addressed by the Administration. Circle Association will take up the matter with CPMG.
  6. All the vacant posts of IPs/ASPs should be filled up so that entrustment of additional unmanageable workload to the IPs /ASPs can be avoided. This type of forcible allocation of extra work has an adverse effect on the efficiency of the incumbent IP/ASP.
  7. The next biennial Circle Conference is decided to be held during the month of Januray 2010. Date and venue of the conference will be discussed and fixed during the next CWC.
  8. The August house is pleased to approve the expenditure already made and to be made for the activities of the Association.

The session was declared closed with thanks to the Chair and special thanks to the CHQ President-Sri S B Mahapatra.
