Urban Indians and pollution

Fueled by fast economic growth, India's cities are getting more polluted and unhealthy by the day, said a TERI (The Energy and Resources Institute) report, stating the obvious.

TERI's researchers spoke to 4,039 people in India's six biggest cities for their perceptions and opinions on environment and green issues over the last five years for its report, which shows that urban Indians are becoming increasingly wary about the air they breath and the food they eat. It is clear why: "Air quality in these six cities has worsened or at best seen no change."

The survey has recorded increasingly anxious and angry voices from Bangalore, Chennai, Delhi and Hyderabad over the state of waste management in their cities. Only respondents from Kolkata and Mumbai said there had been an improvement, in this respect.

The growing urban angst over pollution shows that government and industry can no longer dither over striking a virtuous balance between environment and development, notes the survey.

No additional charges should be entrusted to Secretary, Planning

Dear Editor,

It’s a unique on the part of the State Govt that one person is allowed to hold the charges of the Secretary to Governor and Secretary (Planning) to the Govt of Arunachal Pradesh. It is surprising how one bureaucrat is allowed to act as the Secretary to two head of the State. As a stop gap arrangement it is OK, but what surprises me is that why and how outgoing secretary Ankur Garg was allowed to hold the charges of Secretary to Governor and Secretary (Planning) for more than 3 long years at a row.

The Governor is the constitutional head of the State and the Secretary (Planning) is supposed to be the right hand of the State government (Chief Minister). The Governor Secretariat is accountable to the Rashtrapati Bhawan but the State Government is directly linked with Prime Minister’s office. Under such circumstances, how a single person can be a reporting Officer for both the Supreme authority. It needs to be examined what type of reports were transmitted by the said Secretary to Prime Minister’s Office and Rashtrapti Bhawan during his tenure as Secretary to Governor and Secretary (Planning).

Better late than never, it is high time that the State Govt, allocates the portfolios to the Secretaries and Commissioners keeping all aspects in mind. As a layman, what we observe over the years is that Secretary (Planning) need to be a man having diverse experience on various planning process and that no additional charges should be entrusted to the Secretary (Planning) to enable him to dedicate his time and energy for planning process.

The best example of the effect for holding dual charges of most important departments is that many ambitious projects have not been able to kick off since last 4 years, especially the PM package and even if some advances have been made in some projects then also it is at snail pace. The Secretary (Planning) who is expected to be having eagle’s eye on all the on-going projects is either shuttling between meetings or flying around with governor thereby leaving the developmental projects at the mercy of contractors and agencies.

Please try to end the harassment

Dear Editor,

Through the columns of your esteemed daily I would like to draw the attention of the Capital DC towards the grievances mentioned below.

I had applied for mortgage and non-encumbrance certificate for our land on 28/02/2012. But even after more than one and half year I am still visiting the D.C office for the same. Since I wanted the certificate urgently I personally monitored the file movement within DC office Naharlagun and also carried the file to the office of Director of Land and brought it back after completing all the necessary formalities to the table of DC, but I don't know why they are taking so much time to issue the certificate.

Ever since the office was shifted to Itanagar, I have been travelling 40 km a day, fighting heavy traffic and investing time and money to reach DC office at Chandannagar, Itanagar. But , I am getting nothing except their endless excuses. When I met DC he said that he has other works also while the babus at DC office informed  me that  the DC has formed different groups for particular works. Finally when I found the group who are dealing with my application, they said that the DC is not responding to their report. Now I  just want to know is this a normal work cycle at DC office? How can be they so irresponsible? Govt. are not paying them for harassing the people. I am sure there are more such cases and people are wandering around DC office for getting simple work to be done. I request the officials at DC office and the DC to perform their duty efficiently and effectively. I also want to appeal my fellow Arunachalee to become aware about the RTI and Time Bound Service bill introduced by govt. of India and use it in practical.


Tara Babu
