Logic of continuing 0.75-percent discount on petrol diesel purchased through credit cards
Dear Editor, Union government post-demonetisation of currency on 08.11.2016 to encourage use of cashless transactions had started giving several discounts for promoting use of credit and debit cards which also included 0.75-percent discount on purchase of petrol and diesel through credit or debit cards. Due to inadequate publicity, it is not clear which discounts are still prevailing which also included on on-line payment of insurance premiums. With all such discounts having since lost relevance after normalisation of currency-position, Union government should not burden exchequer with subsidy-loss through such discounts any more. Instead steps should be taken to ensure banking to be made least expensive including in respect of credit and debit cards. Concept of minimum-balance-charge f...

Even seven-day-in-week banking feasible after merger
Dear Editor, It refers to presentation by State Bank of India (SBI) Chairman Rajneesh Kumar in a recent meeting of bankers, wherein he shared SBI-experience on merger of five associate banks of SBI that everything was settled after some initial teething problems. It is time that mega-merger plan of too many (21) public-sector banks in five named anchor-banks namely Punjab National Bank, Canara Bank, Union Bank of India, Bank of India and Bank of Baroda may be implemented in a time-bound period of say six months. Mega-merger will bring down overheads in running surplus bank-branches, where nearing bank-branches of merged banks with less business especially in urban area could then be merged with nearing big branches. Reducing number of banks will largely reduce need of clearing-operations...

Safeguards necessary for senior citizens
Dear Editor, Latest data released by Reserve Bank of India (RBI) shows a sharp decline in small savings in first eight months of financial year 2017-18 when small savings schemes amounted to just rupees 40,429 crore, a seven-fold dip from Rs 2,75,682 crore in the corresponding period of the previous year. Evidently it is at cost of more investment in mutual-fund schemes where political and other factors can suddenly harm the investors like happened in investment in properties. A sharp decline in interest-rate was anticipated post-demonetisation when Jeevan Akshay pension-plan of LIC of India for the reason witnessed maximum investment in that period. But with currency-circulation crossing what it was before demonetisation, fall in interest-rate is not appreciable with interest-rates of ...

One-child theory
Dear Editor, It refers to media-reports about elder son of a leading politician reportedly dissatisfied about his political career. Similar family-disputes have earlier been surfaced in past in other regional political parties of other states also. Those desiring dynastic tradition to be followed in their political parties, should adopt one-child theory to avoid any legacy disputes or dissatisfaction about their political heir. After all politics is family-business for politicians running political parties as their business-shops, and otherwise also disputes in business after division in families is quite common even with top industrial houses. —Madhu Agrawal, 1775 Kucha Lattushah Dariba, Chandni Chowk Delhi....

Priyanka Chopra true Indian
Dear Editor, Priyanka Chopra remains in the news with new of her achievements and her different views. Now she was in news for wrong reasons -uncalled for controversy -so called sentiments hurts by a section of people for her role in “The Blood of Romeo,” a recent episode of “Quantico”. Both PC and ABC production apologized for it. There was no way out for them but to apologized rightly or wrongly being a public figure and commercial artistes. Remember that films and TV serials /programmes are result of creativity and artistic thoughts and are work of fiction only. Priyanka Chopra rightly said without any doubt that “I’m a proud Indian and that will never change,” Also, in the recent past it was her the dress worn by her in the meeting with our Prime Minister Narendra Modi, which was ob...

MRP include packing material n Carry bags
Dear Editor, The use of plastic material especially one-time use is playing havoc with nature and human beings. It is fatal now. As per reports many birds and animals eat plastic waste and die. The same meat is consumed by human beings which goes into human blood -which results in various diseases even like cancer etc. and even to newly born through mothers. Then why a blanket ban on such plastic manufacture and use is not implemented in the human lives interest. Unfortunately, the ban on production and use of plastic bags has failed. Plastic is an environmental hazard. It also chokes the drainage system and takes a long time to degrade which in turn leads to pollution. Commercial use at the stake of human lives can never be justified. Heavy penalty with life imprisonment is needed for s...

Introduce sponsored postal-stamps on lines of sponsored postal-stationery to increase revenue-earning for postal-department
Dear Editor, Department of posts should come up with idea of sponsored postal-stamps on sponsors paying some sponsorship-fees per printed stamp apart from mandating purchasing some stipulated percentage of total print-order to be sold on face-value of stamps. When department can accept commercial advertisements on postal-stationery, there is no reason that revenue may also be raised by introducing concept of sponsored postal-stamps. Design of sponsored stamps can be approved by a department committee to avoid controversial designs of such stamps. It will further raise revenue because sponsoring companies will be shifting to postal-service from private courier-service in order to use their sponsored postal-stamps on mailed articles. Only sponsored meghdoot postcards may be sold by posta...

Initiate proceedings for appointment of new CIC
Dear Editor, Central Information Commission (CIC) is presently working with partial strength of seven out of total eleven Central Information Commissioners (including Chief Central Information Commissioner). However pendency is reducing day-by-day even with partial strength due to reformative measures initiated. But problem will arise when four more Central Information Commissioners including present Chief Central Information Commission will retire in coming November 2018 either on competition of their 5-year tenure or attaining age of 65 years. It will be difficult to carry with just three Commissioners in case appointment-process is not now started. Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT) should start appointment-process of four more Commissioners including Chief Central Informat...

Ministers should have talent & experience
Dear Editor, It refers to central government approving direct appointment of non-IAS specialists from private sector for ten posts of Joint Secretaries in Indian government. The move will demoralise IAS officers and practically adversely affect the administration-work because of demoralised IAS officers. Those passing through tough-most competitive examinations and interviews for Indian Administrative Service (IAS) are naturally best talented ones sacrificing lucrative service-offers from private sector and foreign countries. Another factor is why those leaving highly-paid private jobs will like to be posted as Joint Secretaries with much low pay-scale. On the contrary all bureaucrats are governed by ministers (centre and states) which neither have administrative experience nor even edu...

Pranab Da is non political person now
Dear Editor, Unnecessary a political hue was raised by Congress on visit of Pranab Mukherjee -true Statesman, ex-President and ex-Congressman on an invitation by RSS in their function. When any person holds the post of the President of India he becomes a nonpolitical person and at any time one can change the loyalty to a political party too with his / her own changed scenario in the political party and situation and circumstances in the national interest and Pranab Da proved that he is true nationalist and patriot -much above politics of any party. Leaders and politicians like him are much needed in the country. Secularism in true sense and true spirit if the Indian Constitution Pranab Da understands well and follows them in life too. Views of other persons and political parties in natio...

Congress President further lowers party-dignity by trying to get political benefit in visiting ailing former PM
Dear Editor, Sonia Gandhi should once again think of giving priority to national interest by unfollowing dynastic tradition in the party by handing over party-command to some really capable and publicly acceptable talented youth which must not be difficult to be traced out of a country of 130 crores. When Prime Minister can take a bold decision of talent-hunt of ten talented non-IAS officers for efficient management as Joint Secretaries, it should not be difficult to find out one such single person which can replace Rahul Gandhi as Congress President to provide an alternative for healthy democracy of two-party system. With daily statements of Rahul Gandhi with latest one claiming credit to be number-one to visit the ailing former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee admitted at AIIMS (Ne...

RSS should export some leaders from BJP to Congress
Dear Editor, Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) has definitely a big unwritten role in managing political power in India. It is said that there have been occasions in past when BJP had to suffer big defeats in elections because RSS cadre was not directed for ensuring poll-win for BJP. Present trend of Indian politics creates apprehensions that the country may again be dragged into a system of opportunist alliance of regional parties which are mainly family-based taking politics like their family-business. All this will be at cost of downfall of a national party namely Congress which may even lose its status of second largest party under present unacceptable leadership of present party-President. Everyone knows that there are always undisclosed behind-the-curtain political games at behes...

Pranab Mukerji at RSS gathering
Dear Editor, It refers to real statesman-like address by former President Pranab Mukerji on 07.06.2018 at tri-annual gathering of RSS. Even RSS Chief Mohan Bhagwat deserves all praise for his address at the gathering for not raising any controversial issue. However while none of them recalled historical past, none of them talked on future reforms necessary for removing evils from the society or political system. Forum otherwise provided a unique opportunity to share views of fast degrading political system because of faulty poll-system which needs a massive and consolidated set of poll-reforms. Congress proved to be biggest advertiser of RSS by creating undesired controversy thus making RSS gathering a big success crossing global boundaries which can be proved through TRP ratings of va...
