KARNATAKA GOVERNMENT DEPARTMENTS ARE VIOLATING KCSR IN RESPECT OF ALLOWING QUALIFYING SERVICE IN PENSION MATTERS
by Admin User - Thursday, 19 October 2017, 04:22 PM
 

By: M.S.Yatnatti: Editor and Video Journalist Bengaluru: Government Home department is requested to consider and Issue of Government order 3 years plus service in Indian Institute of science as qualifying service for pension in respect of Sri Rajendra Prasad Police Inspector (Retired) after considering non duty period as leave granted without pay as all kinds of leave shall count as service under all circumstances provided that the maximum period of leave without allowances to be so counted shall be restricted to 3 years in the entire service and his total service in Indian Institute of science as it is central government organization .As per citation of KAT order in application number 884/2009 dated 10-10-2012 you can consider his total non duty period as leave granted and consider it for qualifying service for pension. Persons, who are recruited after 30 years of age, are eligible for addition to the qualifying service in accordance with the provisions of Rule 247 A of KCSR.

Prior to the Decision of the Supreme Court in the case of DEOKINANDAN PRASAD v. STATE OF BIHAR , pension was considered as a bounty depending upon the will of the employer which could be withdrawn at any time. It is only after Deokinandan's case, the concept of pension changed since it is held to be a valuable right vesting in a Government servant. It is in the nature of a deferred payment of the amount which a Government employee has earned on account of his service to the State beyond a prescribed period.

Conditions of Qualifying Service - A government servant’s service does not qualify for pension till he has completed 18 years of age (Rule 220 of KCSR). The service must be under Government i.e. appointment done by the Government and duties and pay regulated by the Government. (Rule 223 of KCSR).Service does not qualify unless the Government servant holds a substantive office on a permanent establishment but temporary service forwarded by permanent service will count to the extent indicated in Rule 226. (Rule 224 of KCSR).Service must be paid for by the Government and does not include service in a non-pensionable establishment.

Rules for Reckoning Service: Leave - Time passed on all kinds of leave with allowances counts as service (Rule 244 of KCSR). Periods of overstayal of leave, joining time, suspension and unauthorized absence which remain unregularised till the time of retirement shall count for pension as qualifying service to a maximum of 3 years. However the periods treated as ‘Dies-non’ shall not be counted as qualifying service for pension(Rule 244-A of KCSR) .Training - Government may at its discretion, decide, in the case of a Government servant who is selected to undergo a course of training whether the period shall count as qualifying service for pension. (Rule 246 of KCSR) .Suspension - The period of suspension does not count unless the competent authority passes an order under Rule 99. Time passed under suspension pending enquiry into the conduct counts in full where, on conclusion of the enquiry, the Government servant has been fully exonerated or the suspension is held to be wholly unjustified. (Rule 250 of KCSR). Resignation, dismissal or removal entails forfeiture of past service (Rule 252 of KCSR).

Special Additions to Qualifying Service :· Addition to qualifying service to members of the Bar, who are appointed to judicial department, is permissible as per the provisions of Rule 247(1) of KCSR. · Persons, who are recruited after 30 years of age, are eligible for addition to the qualifying service in accordance with the provisions of Rule 247 A of KCSR.· Military/ War service counts for pension (Rule 219-A, 219-B of KCSR), if pension is not earned for this service separately. Employees of educational institutions recognized by government and subsequently getting into Government service in accordance with the rules of recruitment are entitled for additions to qualifying service in accordance with the provisions of the Rule 248 of KCSR. Employees of work charged establishment of Government subsequently absorbed into Government service are entitled for additions to qualifying service as per the provisions of 248 A of KCSR. Counting of additional years/ past service (under Rule 219, 224, 235, 247, 248, 252,416 & 417 as qualifying service for pension as per the above rules is subject to sanction from the appointing authority in accordance with the provisions of Rule 224-B of KCSRs. (Effective from 12-5-2006, vide GO No.FD 06 SRA 2004 dated:8/5/2006).

KCSR: Service rendered in Government Aided Primary schools prior to joining Government schools and organizations cannot be discriminated and neglected in pension matters. Principal Secretary Primary Education Department and Karnataka AG officers and commissioners of public instructions are passing orders without reading KCSR on pension matters in respect primary schools teachers who have worked in Aided schools before joining government schools. As for as rule 248 KCSR is concerned it is applicable only to recognized private schools and it is not applicable to Government Aided educational organisation as there is no mention of it in 248 KCSR. They have done injustice in case of Sri Janardhan hatwar of Mysore by reversing the order after 14 years and several others despite Applicability of KCSR Rule 235 and 235(iii) 235(IV) and KCSR rule 223 and Karnataka education Act Section 87 which makes government servants and servants in Grant in aid Schools and institutions at par and making all services under government as per Karnataka education Act Section 87 whether temporary or permanent to count under 224-A KCSR. KCSR mandates to Consider service rendered in Government Aided educational organisation prior to joining government service along with Government rendered Service to be counted as qualifying service under KCSR Rule 224-A . As there is no difference in service rendered for the purpose of pension between the services rendered in Government & Government aided Institution as per KCSR .The Government aided Educational institutions functions under the Karnataka State Education Act 1995. In which section 87 clearly defines about qualifications, conditions of service of employees and which states clearly that “The State Government may after previous publication make rules regulating the recruitment and conditions of service (including rights as regards disciplinary matters) of the employees in recognised private educational institutions. Provided that the minimum qualifications for recruitment age of recruitment, and retirement and benefits of retirement to employees in educational institutions receiving maintenance grant from the State Government shall be the same as those applicable for the corresponding category of employees, if any in State Institutions unless otherwise prescribed.” The Karnataka education Act Section 49 States that “Government to set apart sum for giving grant-in-aid to certain recognised institution (1) The state Government shall within limits of its economic capacity,set apart a sum of money annually for being given as grant- in-aid (hereinafter in this act referred to as grant) to local authority institutions and private institution in the state recognised for this purpose in accordance with the rules made in this behalf” . Therefore the AG needs to admit service rendered in Government Aided educational organisation prior to joining government service along with Government rendered Service to be counted as qualifying service under KCSR.

THE “APARTMENT OWNERS ASSOCIATION” HAS TO BE NECESSARILY TO BE REGISTERED ONLY UNDER KARNATAKA APARTMENT OWNERSHIP ACT 1972
by Admin User - Wednesday, 18 October 2017, 03:59 PM
 

By: M.S.Yatnatti: Editor and Video Journalist Bengaluru: KRERA officials before registering the apartment projects must insist that apartment plan must be registered under Karnataka Apartment Ownership Act 1972 and The Deed of Declaration (DoD) is a document that describes the property, i.e., the building, all of its apartments, the common facilities such as lifts, generators, fire fighting equipment, pool, gym etc., along with the ownership scheme giving the percentage share of each apartment. Along with the DoD, copies of plan approvals from local authorities and bye-laws of the association of owners is to be registered.as The Karnataka Apartment Owners Act 1972 act deals exclusively with apartments that are residential in nature. Apartments are termed as transferable properties that are also heritable under this act. In order to register the apartment complex under this act, all apartment owners will need to come together and sign the particulars, which can be quite an ordeal but need to be done as per Act .It turns out the RERA and Urban Development Department is could we hope that the state will begin to ensure adherence to the law, educate its citizens as well as builders and maybe even amend these acts soon to make them modern and more functional? Can buyers get together and force the builders to do things in the right way?.

Facts of Karnataka Apartment Ownership Act 1972 and Association Registration process: KAOA (The Karnataka Apartment Ownership Act 1972) is not pertaining to Registration of Apartment Owners Association .KAOA completes the process of creating proper “title “of the flat by registering the Deed of Declaration in Form “A” by sole owners or by all Owners and execution of Form “B” by all Owners.It is the responsibility of the Builder to prepare and register the Deed of Declaration in form “A” with Sub Registrar office along with its bylaws. This deed of declaration need to be registered by the Builders much before conveying the sale deed to the individual home buyers and reference of this Registered Deed of declaration to be mentioned in the Sale deed .Subsequently every individual Owners need to submit a declaration in Form “B” upon registering the sale deed .The Builder hand over the Registered Deed of Declaration and Form “B” upon forming the Association of Owners, under Karnataka Co-operative Societies Act 1959 or under Company’s Act 2013. (Earlier 1959).The Association Committee submit the certified copies of Deed of Declaration, Byelaws and Form “B” to the competent authority, within 30 days* of its first General Body meeting , and this completes the process of KAOA.

After dilly-dallying, state-owned housing development agencies, including the Bangalore Development Authority and Karnataka Housing Board, have agreed to register their projects under the Karnataka Real Estate Regulation Authority (KRERA).“Initially, there was confusion. Now that the Karnataka law department has cleared the air, we've decided to register our ongoing projects under KRERA,'' Reportedly BDA commissioner said .This gives hope to beneficiaries of houses and sites developed by government housing development authorities, especially those who were allotted sites in BDA layouts -Nadaprabha Kempe Gowda, and Arkavathy .“Once these layouts are registered, government agencies will have to complete their projects on time or face action. All property disputes would have to be addressed in 60 days or else the buyer will get compensation,“ Reportedly said a KRERA official .All private layouts appro ved by BDA, BBMP and Bangalore Metropolitan Regional Development Authority must register under KRERA.“We've identified 188 layouts approved by BDA in north Bengaluru and issued notices to get registered under KRERA at the earliest. So far, 12 have complied. We'll identify such layouts in other parts of Bengaluru,'' REPORTEDLY KRERA secretary said.The KHB has registered three ongoing projects in Bengaluru. “KHB projects and KHB-approved projects will come under RERA now and they have registered all ongoing projects,'' .The BDA and other housing development authorities were hoping for exemption from RERA since they are registered as nonprofits.These agencies had received relief after the Karnataka State Government Employees' House Building Cooperative Society and others had approached the high court, claiming RERA infringed on their rights under the Karnataka Co-operative Societies Act, 1959, as the power for making legislation for cooperative societies is the exclusive jurisdiction conferred upon the legislatures. The court is reportedly awaiting the order of the Bombay High Court where the hearing is on a similar petition. Quoting RERA, secretary said both private and public institutions which develop real estate projects for sale to the public must register under RERA .All housing projects including those developed by private builders as well as the Karnataka Housing Board and Bangalore Development Authority will come under the purview of real estate regulatory authority (RERA). .The Real Estate (Regulation & Development) Act, 2016, came into effect from May 1, ending the nine-year long wait. The Act provides for regulating the real estate sector involving over 76,000 companies across India. The law enables buyers to enforce their rights and seek redressal of grievances before the authority. The law stipulates (1) Depositing 70% of the funds collected from buyers in a separate bank account in case of new projects and 70% of unused funds in case of ongoing projects. (2) Projects with plot size of minimum 500 sq.mt or eight apartments shall be registered with regulatory authorities. (3) Both developers and buyers pay the same penal interest of SBI's Marginal Cost of Lending Rate plus 2% in case of delays (4) Liability of developers for structural defects for five years; and (5) Imprisonment of up to three years for developers and up to one year in case of agents and buyers for violation of orders of Appellate Tribunals and Regulatory Authorities.

The Registration Procedure: Given below are a few facets that you’ll need to know while getting your apartment registered under the Karnataka Government The Declaration should be registered properly under the Registration Act of 1908.The deeds involved with the house will also need to be registered with the Registration Act of 1908.The floor plan of the particular building should also be duly registered under the Registration Act of 1908.Along with the registration of the building’s Declaration, extensive details about the building should also be filed along.

Filing of the First Information Report (FIR) is of paramount importance as the process of justice begins with registration of an offence with the police station. The procedure for filing FIR has been given under Section 154 of Code of Criminal Procedure, 1973. The Constitution Bench of Supreme Court of India in its judgment dated 12.11.2013, in the W.P. (Criminal) No. 68 of 2008{Lalita Kumari Vs Govt. of Uttar Pradesh and Ors.} has, inter-alia, held that, “Registration of FIR is mandatory under Section 154 of the Code, if the information discloses commission of a cognizable offence and no preliminary inquiry is permissible in such a situation”. The offences under the PoA Act are cognizable. As such the affected person must file an First Information Report (FIR) in the Police Station of the area as per relevant provisions under Chapter II of the Scheduled Castes and the Scheduled Tribes (Prevention of Atrocities){PoA} Act, 1989, as amended by the Scheduled Castes and the Scheduled Tribes (Prevention of Atrocities) (Amendment) Act, 2015(No. 1 of 2016).

The Scheduled Castes and the Scheduled Tribes (Prevention of Atrocities) Amendment Bill, 2015 was passed by the Lok Sabha on August 4, 2015 and by the Rajya Sabha on December 21, 2015. The amendment act received President’s assent on December 31, 2015.

Presently EWS (annual income not exceeding 3 lakh). PMAY was launched in June 2015. The Government envisages building affordable pucca houses with water facility, sanitation and electricity supply round-the-clock. The scheme originally was meant to cover people in the EWS (annual income not exceeding 3 lakh) and LIG (annual income not exceeding 6 lakh) sections, but now covers the mid-income group (MIG) as well. BDA should to stop exhibiting the style of functioning in a dictatorial manner either without understanding the statutory provisions, law laid down in a catena of decisions, violating rule of law or in utter ignorance of law. BDA cannot exercised powers illegally, arbitrarily and discriminately giving a go-bye to all norms, guidelines and principles required to be scrupulously followed.Quoting BDA Rules, the judge had said what is required to be considered is the income of the applicant and not that of her husband.

Observing that the government must revise the ceiling for all categories every year, the high court has said a beneficiary must not pay for government’s failure. “The Rs 11,800 ceiling was fixed long ago. The same is required to be enhanced from time to time. There is a failure on the part of the government in not enhancing the income to determine (if) a person is eligible for EWS (sites) or not,” a division bench observed, dismissing a writ appeal filed by the BDA“On account of the lapse committed by the government, a person cannot be penalized. Every year, the government is bound to fix the ceiling for all the categories. When there is a failure on the part of the government to do so, the authorities cannot set aside the order of allotment three years after the same was made” the bench has observed, upholding the order of a single-judge bench. Shakeerabi, from Ilyasnagar, had applied for an EWS site with a claim that her annual income is Rs 10,000. She was allotted a 20x30ft site, and paid Rs 56,000 for it. Three years later, the BDA issued a show-cause notice, saying she had concealed the family’s income. Her family’s annual earnings stood at Rs 21,000, factoring her husband’s income, it said. On June 8, 2007, the BDA revoked the site allotment. A single-judge bench had quashed the cancellation of the site. Quoting BDA Rules, the judge had said what is required to be considered is the income of the applicant and not that of her husband.

By : M.S.Yatnatti Editor and Video Journalist Bengaluru : The CM said he has been living in Bengaluru since 1983, and has never seen such heavy rain. “During the past 60 days, it has rained on 46 days. It was not ordinary rain, on most days, it rained heavily. Drains in Bengaluru do not have the capacity to withstand so much rain at a stretch,“Reportedly the Karnataka government proposes to develop Bengaluru's 850km stor m water drain (raja kaluve) network. Chief minister Siddaramaiah told reporters that storm water drains in Bengaluru were unable to bear the load of heavy rain lashing the city over the past two months, and blamed the previous government of its failure to fix the storm water drain network. He said he had already sanctioned Rs 800crore for the development of 350km of SWD network, where the problem is acute, to prevent rain-related mishaps. Development of the remaining 500km of drain network will be taken up next year, he said, adding that all encroachments, illegal buildings and silt will be removed in the process. It is evident that BBMP didn't give importance to the development of raja kaluve or to clear encroachments on drains, nor did they increase their capacity by removing silt and building retaining walls, leading to the problems dogging the city today .According to press reports the incessant rainfall over the past two months has made 2017 the wettest year for Bengaluru city. The annual rainfall for the city , 1,615.2mm as on Saturday morning, is the highest ever.It is 8.4mm more than the earlier record of 1,606.8 mm, in 2005. The Indian Meteorological Department has rainfall data for 115 years. A meteorological depart ment official said the city is facing a unique weather system wherein the south-west monsoon has extended its stint and soon the north-east monsoon will arrive. The combination of the weather system coupled by low pres sure situation created in the Arabian Sea is resulting in showers over interior Karnataka and Bengaluru falls in this region,“. “One has to analyse the possible relation to climate change as extreme weather events are related to it. Bengaluru is a growing city and has been experiencing heat island effect which further results in rainfall after a prolonged harsh summer or dry run,“.Improve Bengaluru need new drainage system with deep wide RCC box Drainage system which should take the total maximum load of down pour at maximum rains and it also need under ground pipe drainage system to drain out water from low lying areas to reach the natural gradient .The blunder committed by urban planners and BDA prepared CDP without reference to storm water drains and irs safe disposal .No wide and deep drainage systems is planned as per requirements of city growth and rain predictions .

The drainage system is an essential part of living in a city or urban area, as it reduces flood damage by carrying water away. Fundamentally, the existing infrastructure and drainage system in the city cannot handle the excess water whenever there's a downpour. Originally, storm water drains in Bangalore were designed in keeping with the three valleys that run across the city Vrishabhavathy, Hebbal and Koramangala-Challaghatta. They served the purpose so long as the population of the city was within a certain limit. The unprecedented growth of Bangalore, unaccompanied by the necessary infrastructure, has precipitated problems of a large magnitude. The city drainage system comprises major drains which need to widened as you are widening roads , roadside drains and shoulder drains need to be widened , otherwise all of which get overburdened during the rainy season and city may submerged like Chennai disaster happened recently.As you widen the roads at the same time you need to widen the drains to drain out the water outside the city .

If BBMP wants to avoid Mumbai and Chennai like disasters it has to woke up and create new drainage systems to entire Benagaluru city.

 

Design New Drainage for Bengaluru: Flood risks and drainage are key considerations when planning all new suburbs. Today, underground drainage systems are generally designed to cope with frequent storms – those with a 20% chance of occurring in a year. Any excess water travels along planned overland flow paths that carry water away from properties. This prevents them from flooding in the majority of storms – up to those with a 1% chance of occurring in a year.We also look at other benefits when designing drainage systems, including the impact on rivers and creeks. For example, when building drainage in Bengaluru we also need to install gross pollutant traps, which capture large litter items like plastic bags, bottles, newspapers and cigarette butts to prevent them being washed into rivers and creeks. We need to create Basin to include a wetland to improve storm water quality, provide greater flood protection, and allow storm water to be harvested to water harvesting open spaces. You can construct big under ground water tanks to store rains waters at open grounds through out benagaluru .Entering storm water drains is dangerous and illegal, and could cost you your life or endanger others who rescue you. What's required is a comprehensive approach to the problem, which essentially involves putting in place a new widened sustainable drainage management system as in developed countries. A storm water drain renovation and widening and deepening and management project had to be prepared for Bangalore and implementation it without delay. In the meantime, risk assessment of vulnerable areas must be carried out and corrective measures taken to minimize them.According to reports reaching here ,The incessant rain in Bengaluru has got the education department worried .All schools have been asked to have a disaster management plan in place, and the 34 deputy directors of public instruction (DDPIs) have been told to monitor implementation.Bengaluru and other parts of Kar nataka have been receiving heavy rain which has impacted schools and the security of students. On October 11, in Kolar district, 70 people, including students, were rescued from a flooded school after a sixhour operation. The condition of some government and private schools situated in low-lying areas of Bengaluru also suffered the same problem after heavy showers.According to National Disaster Management Authority (NDMA) guidelines for Safe School Policy 2016, schools should have their own disaster management plan for every situation; capacity building of children, teachers, school personnel, state and district education machinery on school safety and disaster preparedness; implementing child-centered, community based disaster risk reduction in the local context; mainstreaming risk and safety education in the school curriculum; linking school safety in the existing government schemes and policies and coordination between district, state, and central government.

IT IS OFFICIAL ALL HOUSING PROJECTS DEVELOPED BY KHB AND BANGALORE DEVELOPMENT AUTHORITY COMES UNDER RERA
by Admin User - Friday, 13 October 2017, 11:35 AM
 

By: M.S.Yatnatti: Editor and Video Journalist Bengaluru: After dilly-dallying, state-owned housing development agencies, including the Bangalore Development Authority and Karnataka Housing Board, have agreed to register their projects under the Karnataka Real Estate Regulation Authority (KRERA).“Initially, there was confusion. Now that the Karnataka law department has cleared the air, we've decided to register our ongoing projects under KRERA,'' Reportedly BDA commissioner said .This gives hope to beneficiaries of houses and sites developed by government housing development authorities, especially those who were allotted sites in BDA layouts -Nadaprabha Kempe Gowda, and Arkavathy .“Once these layouts are registered, government agencies will have to complete their projects on time or face action. All property disputes would have to be addressed in 60 days or else the buyer will get compensation,“ Reportedly said a KRERA official.All private layouts appro ved by BDA, BBMP and Bangalore Metropolitan Regional Development Authority must register under KRERA.“We've identified 188 layouts approved by BDA in north Bengaluru and issued notices to get registered under KRERA at the earliest. So far, 12 have complied. We'll identify such layouts in other parts of Bengaluru,'' REPORTEDLY KRERA secretary said.The KHB has registered three ongoing projects in Bengaluru. “KHB projects and KHB-approved projects will come under RERA now and they have registered all ongoing projects,'' .The BDA and other housing development authorities were hoping for exemption from RERA since they are registered as nonprofits.These agencies had received relief after the Karnataka State Government Employees' House Building Cooperative Society and others had approached the high court, claiming RERA infringed on their rights under the Karnataka Co-operative Societies Act, 1959, as the power for making legislation for cooperative societies is the exclusive jurisdiction conferred upon the legislatures. The court is reportedly awaiting the order of the Bombay High Court where the hearing is on a similar petition. Quoting RERA, secretary said both private and public institutions which develop real estate projects for sale to the public must register under RERA.All housing projects including those developed by private builders as well as the Karnataka Housing Board and Bangalore Development Authority will come under the purview of real estate regulatory authority (RERA). .The Real Estate (Regulation & Development) Act, 2016, came into effect from May 1, ending the nine-year long wait.The Act provides for regulating the real estate sector involving over 76,000 companies across India. The law enables buyers to enforce their rights and seek redressal of grievances before the authority. The law stipulates (1) Depositing 70% of the funds collected from buyers in a separate bank account in case of new projects and 70% of unused funds in case of ongoing projects. (2) Projects with plot size of minimum 500 sq.mt or eight apartments shall be registered with regulatory authorities. (3) Both developers and buyers pay the same penal interest of SBI's Marginal Cost of Lending Rate plus 2% in case of delays (4) Liability of developers for structural defects for five years; and (5) Imprisonment of up to three years for developers and up to one year in case of agents and buyers for violation of orders of Appellate Tribunals and Regulatory Authorities.

My suggestion is, If you plan to buy a flat or plot always go for Bank loans (even if you have lots of money), when you take the loan route, the papers are legally checked by the bank and secondly, ensure there are minimum 4 - 5 banks offering loan for the apartment/residential colony. Look before you leap.Cons are everywhere . Beware of con artists: Con artists make money through deception. They lie, cheat and fool people into thinking they've happened onto a great deal or some easy money, when ­they're the ones who'll be making money. If that doesn't work, they'll take advantage of our weaknesses -- loneliness, insecurity, poor health or simple ignorance. The only thing more important to a con artist than perfecting a con is perfecting a total lack of conscience.What does the average con artist look like? Despite what you may think, he isn't always a shady-looking character. A con artist is an expert at looking however he needs to look. If the con involves banking or investments in properties, the con artist will wear a snappy suit. If it involves home improvement scams, he'll show up wearing well-worn work clothes. Even the basic assumption that the con is a "he" is incorrect: there are plenty of con women too.“Ensure papers are in order verify the builder's credentials”.

“SAFE DRIVING” VITAL IN RAIN TO AVOID “ACCIDENTS” THE BBMP DOES NOT CREATE POTHOLES “THEY HAPPENS IN “RAINY SEASON: “CREATE STF TO FIX THEM”
by Admin User - Thursday, 12 October 2017, 12:34 PM
 

By: M.S.Yatnatti: Editor and Video Journalist Bengaluru: Media reports tips for motorists to keep in mind when driving in the rain in order to lessen their chances of being involved in an accident. And note to drive slower and with more caution in rainy season. It is very important to drive at a slower and safer pace when driving in the rain. It takes longer to stop when the road is wet, so driving at an increased following distance will mitigate the chances of a collision. Take into account greater traveling time as it will take motorists longer to reach their destination. Drivers must also avoid hard or sudden braking, as this may cause the vehicle to slide across the road and cause an accident. Rather start braking earlier, less forcefully and take your foot off the accelerator to slow down little by little. This will also signal to any drivers behind the vehicle that you are slowing down.Turn on the headlights: Motorists should switch on headlights even in light rain, foggy or overcast conditions. This will help the motorists to see and be seen by other drivers and improve overall safety for all motorists on the road.Be sure to check tyre traction and wipers on a regular basis: Tyres with a low or illegal tread significantly reduces the vehicle’s traction on a wet road and offers very little resistance to hydroplaning It is also important that tyres are properly inflated and that the pressure is checked at least once a month. The correct air pressure for tyres is specified by the vehicle manufacturer and can usually be found on the door edge of the vehicle or in the owner’s manual.Replace old or brittle wipers as defective wipers will hinder visibility as the wipers will not clear water from the windshield properly. Keep a spare pair of wipers in your car to ensure that you can replace faulty wipers immediately.

Do not use cruise control: Cruise control might allow drivers to be less vigilant to take their foot off of the pedals, which is not a good idea when driving on a wet road. Driving on a wet road requires the full attention of the driver and cruise control will slow his or her reaction time to brake or accelerate.Driving in rainy weather conditions severely increase the chances of collisions. Therefore, it is imperative that motorists arm themselves with knowledge on how to ensure that they are being safe on the roads to avoid dangerous accidents from occurring.It is pertinent to note that potholes are not formed by BBMP or BDA as they happen every were in the world during rainy season in asphalt roads. A pothole is a type of failure in an asphalt pavement, caused by the presence of water in the underlying soil structure and the presence of traffic passing over the affected area .Despite hundreds of crores being spent annually and promises being made by the government, there is no noticeable difference in the state of Bangalore’s roads. With tens of thousands of potholes and regular accidents, public complaints and media coverage have continued to rise.

“MISSING FILES NO EXCUSE FOR DENYING INFORMATION” THE DC NEEDS TO PUBLISH EVERY THING THEY DO IN A YEAR UNDER RTI ACT
by Admin User - Wednesday, 11 October 2017, 12:02 PM
 

By: M.S.Yatnatti: Editor and Video Journalist Bengaluru: How effective is RTI act in India?. It's quite subjective question. But it's really very, very effective particularly in case of Central Government Dept. & Ministries as only through RTI Act many prominent & most debated cases of corruption unearthed . So certainly it has just given power & authority to common man to inquire about anything related to public at large.And I really appreciate your curiosity for Right to Information. In India, following a nationwide campaign led by grassroots and civil society organizations, the government passed a landmark Right to Information Act in 2005. Since then, social activists, civil society organizations, and ordinary citizens have effectively used the Act to tackle corruption and bring greater transparency and accountability in the government. Social activist Aruna Roy has described India’s RTI Act as “the most fundamental law this country has seen as it can be used from the local panchayat(a unit of local government) to parliament, from a nondescript village to posh Delhi, and from ration shops to the big scam.”

I have filed RTI Application to additional DC and PIO Bengaluru Urban District to provide me action taken report and copy of departmental enquiry conducted to fix the responsibility for loss of record and also provide copy of police complaint filed in respect of missing file of Revenue Commissioner order in RA 276/42-43 Dated 20-11-1944 and order of Deputy Commissioner Bangalore in RA 74/41-42 dated 2-06-1941 in respect of survey Number 66 of Kodigehalli Bangalore North Taluka as you have reported that file is not available in record room of DC office by your letter dated 12-01-2015 copy of which is enclosed with this RTI Application .DC need to look into citation of KIC order in 6745 COM 2008 PARA 4 of the order. Public authorities cannot take excuse of “missing files” for denying information under the RTI Act as such claims have no legality under the transparency law for withholding records, the Central Information Commission has held.“Unless proved the record was destroyed as per the prescribed rules of destruction/retention policy, it is deemed that record continues to be held by the public authority,” Information Commissioner Sridhar Acharyulu said in his order.The case came before the CIC after one Om Prakash sought to know information from Land and Building Department of Delhi Government regarding allotment of alternative plot in lieu of his land acquired by the Government.The Department admitted before the Commission that the relevant file is missing and it could not be traced even though the officers personally inspected room of the Land and Building Department after receiving the RTI application. The official representing the department said there is no possibility of retrieving the missing record .In a terse order, the Commissioner said loss of records that are required to be kept and maintained permanently, if considered as evidence in a case, should invite criminal complaint against officials under section 201 of Indian Penal Code (punishable with imprisonment which is directly proportional to seriousness of offence charged from seven years to 10 years and for life.) “Claim of file missing or not traceable has no legality as it is not recognised as exception by the RTI Act.
