ISS: Better media management for better image building

The government is planning to enact a major changed in the list of IIS officers looking after the media management of the government. It has been realized that there is a major shortfall on part of the present officials in handling the media.

Sources said that some of the officers are overburdened with having been assigned five to six ministries while some are either not taking the work assigned to them seriously or unable to carry out the job expected from them. So the major change in the offing very soon with name and plan ready.

The government is under tremendous pressure except on the issues of PMO and home ministry which is better than other ministries and apparently having better performers. Sources said that the list has already been finalized with certain things to get approved before it is formally released.

There is also a lack of coordination between the bureaucracy and the political leadership where the role of these officials come but neither these official take any initiative nor appear active to suggest something. So the government decided to streamline media management of the government and that will start with placing capable officers at the right place.

FinMin may push for Rs 25-30K cr interim dividend from RBI

By IndianMandarins 21 hours ago

Union finance ministry is expected to push for Rs 25,000-30,000 crore interim dividend from the RBI for the third time in a row. Reportedly with the interim dividend from the RBI, the govt wants to put a check to 3.3 percent fiscal deficit target slippage. Reportedly, the Finance Minister may take up the matter in a post-Budget.

The RBI paid a total Rs 38,000 crore as an interim dividend in the past. The government has a Budget estimate of Rs 90,000 crore dividend from RBI in FY20. The RBI follows July-June as FY and usually distributes dividend in August after annual accounts are finalised and interim dividends if any, they are given around February to the government.

For 2018-19, the RBI transferred a total of Rs 1.76 trillion to the government, including a one-time transfer of Rs 52,637 crore which was deemed as excess reserves and comprising Rs 1,23,414 crore of surplus for the year 2018-19. The government is fighting a six-year low growth, subdued demand, and consumption leading to projections of 5 percent growth.

SAD’s utility factor for BJP in Delhi?

By IndianMandarins 22 hours ago

The way BJP has snapped its ties with SAD in Delhi and has chosen JD(U) and LJP instead makes two things very clear. First, utility of an alliance partner is more important than emotional quotient and second they will not buckle under the pressure of anyone on CAA. And this is reflected from the fact when the BJP parted ways from Shiv Sena in Maharashtra and SAD in Delhi. They had already dumped TDP before 2019 Lok Sabha elections.

Though the SAD and BJP are claiming that alliance was broken on the issue of CAA but the reality looks different. BJP is focusing more on Poorvanchali vote bank in Delhi. Joining JDU and LJP in Delhi will have its spillover effect in Bihar and West Bengal as well. The game plan of the BJP is apparently to use services of Nitish Kumar, Ram Vilas Paswan and Chirag Paswan to win over not so enthusiastic 45 per cent Poorvanchali voters who had voted Kejriwal last time.

Rashtriya Sikh Sangat is also working for the BJP to neutralize the impact of SAD in Delhi which has over 10 lakh Sikh votes. So the BJP snapping ties with SAD is a well thought out decision.

Ministers’ over indulgence in bureaucratic affairs?

By IndianMandarins 21 Jan 2020

Apparently Haryana Govt is at present facing a unique case. State Home Minister Anil Vij has sought disciplinary action against state CID chief by writing a letter to state Home Secretary. The minister has demanded that state CID chief Anil Kumar Rao (IPS:1984:HY) to be replaced by Shrikant Jadhav (IPS:1984:HY), which may happen. 

This is actually being looked upon as tug of war between Vij and CM Manohar Lal. Though Vij did not disclose what information he had sought but this was not the first time when he had shown his displeasure over working of CID.

He had announced setting up a three-member panel headed by state home secretary Vijai Vardhan to suggest ways to improve working of the department. The minister had also expressed his dismay for keeping him out of loop while CM’s flying squad undertook surprise checks at offices of the Regional Transport Authority offices.

Haryana CM recently said that CID remained under the CM’s charge during terms of Bansi Lal and Devi Lal, an assertion that appeared to counter the home minister's claim over the department.

Vij had taken exception to two state government websites that showed that the CID was held by Khattar. "Governments are not run by websites. They are run by the rule of law," Vij said.

On being asked if grounds were being prepared to take away the CID from him, Vij said, "The CM is supreme. If he wants to divide a department, he can do that; if he wants to take away a department, he can do that. I never raised any objection to this."
