RAG PICKKERS

Wednesday, December 30th, 2009

Rag packers are the real ambassador of climate change. They are working on their climate change agenda helping for recycling of waste material and earning their bread. Enhancing the economy of the country saving our forest and reducing emission of the green house gases but still they are not getting their recognitions in the society they should be involved in viable economy development projects of the government. Rag pickers are most eligible for carbon credit govt. should recognize them and give them benefits of carbon credit. While our local bodies’ particularly local bodies are constitutionally duty bound for waste management and allied services. But, they are not doing enough work in this direction. So we should reward these Rag Pickers.

Monday, December 28th, 2009

Recently economic advisor to the Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh proposed a new criteria for listing of BPL (below poverty line families) in which inspite of calorie based intake is changed with economy status of the each family. It is a drastic change and increase the below poverty line list for 37 crore to 40 crore. No doubt it is a more practical approach toward “aam admi”. Calorie based criteria is outdated now it will change all the data’s of development and developing schemes of the nations.

Wednesday, December 23rd, 2009

Still rising prices are alarming, common man still facing threat from price rise. Poors are unable to live graceful life. Inflation rates are above 17.47% while it was 15.58% last week, whole sale price index which declared by the govt. of India and actual prices are still above govt. declared price index. The mechanism of price index is irrelevant at present.

REVOLUTIONARY AND DRASTIC

The revolutionary and drastic change to improve public delivery system is a commendable job. The govt. of India bringing in “service level agreements” (SLA). Which will mandate time frames and identifying dealing officer responsible for delivering services which includes nine services such as: birth Certificate, Death Certificate, Ration Cards, Driving License, Voter Id, etc. Delay will cause penalty on official concerned to make him liable for delay. No doubt we needs better evolution schemes to grade its army of beaurocrates and improve the public delivery system, after RTI Act (right to information act). This bid to improve public delivery system is great idea of Dr. Manmohan Singh Prime Minister of India.
