What is creamy layer according to Supreme Court

Whether "Creamy Layer" is to be excluded from SEBCs? (Socially and Economically Backward Classes) "Creamy Layer" is to be excluded from SEBCs.

Procedure to issue income certificates

Supreme Court has come out with its landmark interpretation of rule on OBC. Now the issue of creamy and non-creamy layer will be crucial in getting reservations in higher educational institutes admissions. I have not any detailed procedure for issuing income certificates as is laid for caste certificates. Once upon a time some Rs. 4800 limit was for Durbal Ghatak Election in Co-Op sector and there was one GR authorising Tahasildars to issue of certificate of income to determine Durbal Ghatak. Thereafter, scholorships, EBC and for all other concessions, revenue officers used to issue certificates. Never thought of workload issue, procedure issue and the consequences analysis of issuing wrong certificates which ultimately defrades state by way of siphoning constitutionally guaranteed consessions and reservations. 1. Who to issue caste certificate. 2. What should be procedure- process. 3. Appeal remedy. 4. Staff support. etc. This is all about income certificate which latter forms basis of non-creamy layer certificate. If you feel this is also an important and crucial issue facing the cadres, then do not just read it and go browsing. Wait, think rationally, react and act pl.

Think Simple to Solve Complex Problems.

When NASA began launching astronauts into space, they found out that the astronauts' pens wouldn't work at zero gravity (ink wouldn't flow down to the writing surface). It took them one decade and $12 million to solve this problem. They developed a pen that worked at zero gravity, upside down, underwater, on practically any surface including crystal, and attemperatures ranging from below freezing to over 300 degrees C. And what did the Russians do? The Russians used a pencil. 2. One of the most memorable case studies on Japanese management techniques was the case of the empty soap box, which occurred in one of Japan's biggest cosmetics companies. The company received a complaint that a consumer had bought a soap box that was empty. Immediately the authorities isolated the problem to the assembly line, which transported all the packaged boxes of soap to the delivery department. For some reason, one soap box went through the assembly line empty. Management asked its engineers to solve the problem. Post-haste, the engineers worked hard to devise an X-ray machine with high-resolution monitors manned by two people to watchall the soap boxes that passed through the line, to make sure they were not empty. No doubt, they worked hard and they worked fast but they spent whoopee amount of time and money to do so. But when a rank-and-file employee in a small company was posed with the same problem, he did not get into the complications of X-rays, etc but instead came out with another solution. He bought a strong industrial electric fan and pointed it at the assembly line. He switched the fan on, and as each soap box passed the fan, it simply blew the empty boxes out of the line. 3. A 50 feet long trailer having 48" wheels got stuck while entering amidtown tunnel in New York because it was approximately 2.5 feet taller than the height of the tunnel. The fire department and the state department of transportation spent the whole day searching for a solution, to no avail. Then a child, aged about 9 years, asked his father, "Why can't they take out the air from the tyre tubes? The height will automatically come down." ____________ _________ _________ _________ _________ _________ _________ ______ Moral: Always look for simple solutions. And learn to focus on solutions, not on problems. If you look at what you do not have in life, you don't have anything. If youlook at what you have in life, you have everything.

Tahasildar Haveli digs out RTI Act being misused, CIC directs probe-

One person files 73 applications in different names **Pune, April 07:* If the Right to Information (RTI) Act empowered citizens by providing a weapon to keep a check on the administration and bring in transparency in Government functioning, the flip side is the misuse of the Act. An individual has been identified seeking information under the RTI for commercial use and Chief Information Commissioner (CIC) has asked for a report in the 73 cases filed by him on behalf of different applicants. "The possible misuse of the RTI Act came to light on a report submitted by tehslidar of Haveli taluka and Appeal Authority for Haveli taluka. It was revealed that 73 applicants with different names had filed appeal with the commission and handwriting in the applications also matched," ChiefInformation Commissioner (Pune division) Vijay Kuvalekar said.Doubts emerged after the Appeal Authority for Haveli taluka submitted during a hearing that an application has been filed with the common address not by the applicant, but a person, M N Patil, on behalf of the applicant, Kuvalekar said.The CIC directed the tehsildar Sanjeev Deshmukh to send notices to all the 73 applicants on the given address while requesting them to appear in person for the hearing and submit a detailed report.Deshmukh said he was receiving a lot of RTI appeals from the same address — in the name of various applicants, and that none of them appeared for the hearings.As per CIC's directions, Deshmukh said he served notice on the applicants on the common address.Only two of the 73 applicants replied. It was revealed that Patil offered services like providing documents related to 7-by-12 extract to the applicant for cash and took signatures of clients on blank paper.The signed papers have been converted into RTI applications by Patil without the knowledge of his clients. Deshmukh said the documents, information sought through RTI Act is given to the client and if they are incomplete, then an appeal is filed.The inquiry further revealed that Patil was involved in a similar activity in Mulshi taluka. The appeal authority and tehsildar of Mulshi Avinash Shinde said, "We were fed up with the number of applications coming in from a common address seeking various information." Suspecting foul play, Shinde asked the police to investigate the cases by verifying the identity of the applicants on the given address. The police have submitted a report that none of the applicants reside in the given address and a person named, M N Patil, is using the property. He has admitted to filing the RTI applications on behalf of various persons, he said.The CIC has expressed concern over the entire matter. "The commission is taking a serious note of it as the matter was serious and objectionable since it would encourage misuse of RTI Act," Kuvalekar said.

Support innocents who are likely to be victimised.

I do not know facts. But I hate " Sap Sap mhanun Bhui Dhopatane". Here is always chance of innocents getting victimised and we all should bear cardinal principle of law that " let 100 offenders scot free but see that no single innocent should be made to suffer. I have every sympathy and support for all innocents those who are subjected to suffer. And I am sure our revenue fraternity would also support all the innocents who are likely to suffer no fault of theirs. Never be under wrong pressure, may it be media or otherwise. Such tactices need to sorted out logically and rationally not emotionally. Unfortunately Sholapur is in trouble once for Sanjay Gandhi, then for EGS and now seems to be for Food & Civil Supply. One can imagine the stress and strain our revenue community in Sholapur district is living under. Nobody except those few in the helm of affair know what is fact, what is true and what is false. Let law take its own course, let scrutiny take place but in a lawful manner,but not under pressure. I know all share joy, happiness and laxury at the cost of others, but when the persons at helm of affair suffer, all cowards run away. Those who have enjoyed must be running away leaving poor chaps to suffer for knowingly or unknowingly committed wrongs or may be for right things being interpreted in wrong spirit. One thing we all should remember, when someone talks about Food and Civil Supply things, if we cry 100 times for true things people disbelive for the system is in mess and disrepute. But anyway, time has come like caste certificate we should ourself say take out this work which unncessarily brings disrepute to Reveune People. How many will agree with me? Mr. Wagmare, be bold enough to fight out this battle, do not feel alone and isolated. I am sure our intellignent revenue community would not leave you all alone. Do not be shaken by suspension, prosecution or whatever so called action, ask our innocent fraternity to take it and face it as professional hazard. But also do not plead anybody who is real offender, who he/she may be. We would like to support innocents who should not be victimised .
