  1. Transferring Cancer ?

    Arvind Kejriwal’s order to transfer 800 officers of Delhi Jal Board to other departments , is like trying to cure cancer by transferring it from one part of the body to another part !

    At worst , these officers will end-up spreading their corrupt practices to those other departments

    At best , those other departments now will have , twice to thrice the number of tables to push the files around !

    Their current departmental efficiency / productivity of 10 % will further go down to 5 % !

    Perhaps , in the short term , Arvind had only this alternative to send out a message

    What should he do next ?

    Here is a suggestion :

    > Invite National Productivity Council to carry out TIME & MOTION studies
    and WORK-SAMPLING studies , to set STANDARD TIMES for all activities
    / processes

    > Get IIT -Delhi , to monitor the individual and departmental efficiencies
    ( Ratio of Actual Times / Standard times )

    > Publish findings on Delhi Government web site

    > Get IIM-A , to develop / install , a Performance Appraisal System based
    on ANNUAL OBJECTIVE SETTING exercise for each officer

    > Incorporate , elements of ” Self Appraisal ” / ” Superior Appraisal ” and
    ” Peer Appraisal ”

    > Serve ” Show Cause Notice ” to those officers whose productivity is less
    than 80 % of the standard in any quarter

    > In Service Rules incorporate a clause to terminate the service of a officer
    whose productivity falls below 50 % for two consecutive quarters

    Over the next 12 months , this exercise should be carried out for all the departments of Delhi government

    This is a pre-requisite to the introduction of Guaranteed Delivery of Services Bill


    Cancer cannot be cured by transferring it from one part of the body to another

    The affected part must be amputated !

  2. Wish he had a magic wand to answer the questions digitally……. Give him time ….support him…..his intentions are pious, his motives are straight and sure it will be in the interest of the common man like you and me who will be the ultimate gainer…

  3. We in the 21st century must look forward to progressive economic policies that helps India propel ahead. Unfortunately populism and populist schemes of subsidy does not really need great brains and is regressive by nature. Congress in the last 65 years have practiced the same and is primarily now facing music when they have no option but to partially withdraw it. Kejri & party have unfortunately stuck into it???? Corruption needs to be tackled at the root level and the cause needs to be addressed rather than the symptoms. AAP is only trying to use public emotions to its benefit and Kejri’s action on babu’s announces that. I take it as a smart move by AAP to find foothold on a highly emotional Indian physche.

  4. fully agree with Anoop Rihal, AAP is doing what congress and its associates have been doing VOTE BANK Politics, without really doing anything. With their Law minister coming in cloud, it seems nothing can be accepted, and we can expect real bad future, I expect and wish to be proven wrong.

  5. Rajiv ji, well said .. he has no magic wand …his intentions are certainly pious, his motives are in the interest of the common man and all he needs is everybody’s support ! Give him some time people for God’s sake, results will definitely follow ……

    Remember he can’t do it alone ……he does need your support !

    Excellent article with completely unbiased thoughts, Rajiv ji …. God bless you !
