IAS Officers to adopt Martyr’s Families

In a unique initiative, IAS officers will adopt families of security personnel, who lost their lives in Maoist combat, anti-terror operations or maintaining law and order.

The bureaucrats will approach such families within their area of posting and offer themselves as facilitators to help them (families) get their dues like pension, gratuity or allotment of services like petrol pump, jobs etc.

The officers, however, would not be providing any direct financial help to such families, it said.“

Their job would be to help the families get their dues from respective governments. They may also help the children in such families to get admission in a school,” Sanjay Bhoosreddy, honorary secretary of Indian Civil and Administrative Service (Central) Association, said.

The association represents all members of Indian Administrative Service (IAS).

Initially, about 700 young officers, of past four batches—2012 to 2015—will be asked to adopt at least one family in the area of their posting.

No need for NOC to apply for Passport for Govt. Servants, PSU/Autonomous body employees

Issuance of Ordinary Passport to Government Servants, PSU/Autonomous body employees

No.VI/40 1/01/05/2014
Government of India
Ministry of External Affairs
CPV Division

Patiala House Annexe, Tilak Marg
New Delhi, 26th May, 2015

OFFICE MEMORANDUM

Subject: Issuance of Ordinary Passport to Government Servants, PSU/Autonomous body employees, et al.
In tune with the Government’s objective of ‘Minimum Government, Maximum Governance’ and with a view to simplifying the procedure for issuance of Passport to Government Servants, PSU j Autonomous body employees, et al, the matter has been reviewed. In order to facilitate issuance of Passport to Government employees, et al;
who find difficulties to obtain Identity Certificate (IC)/No Objection Certificate (NOC) from their department, it has been decided to introduce a new feature which is termed as ‘Prior Intimation’ letter to the controlling authority by the Passport applicant before submission of a Passport application.

2. Basically, Prior Intimation is a letter from the Passport applicant giving intimation to his/her Controlling I Administrative Authority (employer) regarding submission of Passport application. This can be submitted by the
applicant in the format of ‘Annexure-N’. After submission of Passport application by such an employee, the copy of this Prior Intimation would be sent to the same Controlling/ Administrative Authority under which the employee is working. In case the employer has any objection regarding issuance of Passport to that employee, they may revert back to concerned Regional Passport Office mentioning the details of such objection. However, the final decision will be taken by the concerned Passport Issuing Authority. If Prior Intimation is submitted by the applicant, Passport
would be issued on the basis of Pre-Police Verification, however the provisions of Police Verification in reissue cases will remain applicable.

3. Henceforth, anyone of the following documents can be submitted by Government Servants, PSU/Autonomous body employees, et al. for submission of application for Passports:
(a) Copy of Prior Intimation to Controlling /Administrative Authority; or
(b) No Objection Certificate from Controlling/Administrative Authority; or
(c) Identity Certificate from Controlling /Administrative authority.

4. No Objection Certificate (NOC) is issued in the format of ‘Annexure-M’ by the Controlling /Administrative Authority of the employee working under them for obtaining Passport by any Government Servants, PSU/Autonomous body employees, et al. If NOC is submitted Passport will be issued on Post-Police Verification basis.

5. Identity Certificate (IC) is issued in the format of ‘Annexure-B’ by the Controlling /Administrative Authority of the employee working under them for obtaining Passport by any Government Servants, PSU j Autonomous body employees, et al. If IC is submitted Passport will be issued on No-Police Verification basis. The spouse of such employees, and dependent children up to the age of 18 years, has an option to submit IC for expeditious issue of passport. In case of IC, the applicant is also required to submit ‘Annexure-I’.

6. It may be noted that the following provisions will remain applicable as mentioned below:
a. While IC should be issued preferably on Official Stationery (letterhead); NOC onplain paper with signature/stamp can be accepted, on the assumption that such offices are using plain paper for day to day correspondence. Prior
Intimation (PI) is required to be submitted on plain paper by the Passport applicant.
b. Telephone, fax and e-mail id of the Controlling I Administrative Office (to the extent available) should be indicated in all the three documents for the purpose of confirmation.
c. Military personnel with cj o APO address (e.g. 56 APO /99 APO) may submit applications at their station of posting or at their permanent address, and write their permanent address in passport [against present address otherwise].
Spouse of such personnel [and adult children, when spouse has expired/divorced] may receive the passport, with authority letter, either by hand or by post. This would apply to similarly placed Air Force/Navy personnel as well.
d. If GovernmentjPSU employees, et al. are transferred after submission of the passport application or passport is returned undelivered due to such transfer, the same be re-dispatched, on request (along with copy of transfer order), at the new address, after correction/ endorsement of address. However, if police verification was required and was not completed, it will be done at the new place.
e. The validity of the documents mentioned at para-3 will be six months from date of issue.

7. While the revised prov1s10ns deal only with passport issuance, the requirement by the Government employees to obtain prior permission from his/her Department I Ministry for travelling abroad as per Conduct Rules will remain unchanged as per the instructions issued by the Department of Personnel & Training and respective authorities.

8. Ministries of the Central Government, and the State Governments/ Union Territories are requested to circulate these instructions to all the employees working under them, including those in attached and subordinate ~offices, and statutory bodies.

Clarification regarding last date for filing of Immovable Property Returns dated 13th January 2015

Dear All

Some colleagues have been enquiring about the need to file Immovable Property Return (IPR) in the old format as per AIS (Conduct) Rules (which is due on 31.01.2015) in view of the new format (which is due on 30.04.2015) devised as per Lokayukt Act. You may kindly find enclosed a circular issued by DoPT in this regard.

As many of you might be aware, vigilance clearance, which among other things is required for posting in GoI and empanelment at various levels, is denied if IPR is filed late or not filed at all. It is advisable to mention the date in IPR rather than leaving it blank.

Wish you all a very happy Pongal/Makar Sankranti/Lohri.

Regards
M.Devaraj

Early Sleep and Early Rise make You the Best Fit.


काममया एवायं पुरुष इति;
सा यथाकामो भवति तत्क्रतुर भवति I
यात्क्रतुर भवति तत कर्म कुरुते:
यत कर्म कुरुते तद अभिसम पद्यते II

(You are what your deep, driving desire is
As your desire is, so is your will
As your will is, so is your deed
As your deed is, so is your destiny)
– Brihadaranyaka Upnishad (4, 4.5)

Many friends and colleagues ask me, why I wake up so early? I just smile or sometime reply too. Let me share the reasons.

My Mother was my great teacher. She used to teach me lessons of life through “Subhashitas” (eloquent saying). As child I didn’t understood much but as I grew up, the messages were clear and became guiding force of my life.

She taught me,
“Vahela je sui rahe, Vahela uthe veer;
Bal Buddhi Dhan vadhe, Sukhma rage Sharir.”

During young age, I used to wake up early but used to extend sleeping hrs further in the bed. The freshness when woke up first and the dullness when get up in second attempt was puzzling me all the time. My US friend, a doctor, finally answered my query. The sleep is like a battery charger. When the body and mind are charged, we wake up and feel fully fresh. But if we try to take further sleep, the battery is used in pushing down the fresh body and mind, consume power. When we wake up in second attempt, the battery actually half discharged. Therefore, there is a feeling of dullness is wake up late.

You may have similar experience. Look at those, who wake up early. Their thoughts are fresh and efficiency very high.

I go to sleep at 9.30 PM and wake up after 6-7 hrs deep sound sleep. The morning hours give me great work time to meditate and write. Many a time, a puzzle difficult at night resolved in the morning.

Don’t say, “O bed! O bed! delicious bed!
That heaven upon earth to the weary head,” and sleep for long hours but remember:

“Sleep is the best meditation.”-Dalai Lama

“Man should forget his anger before he lies down to sleep.”-Mohandas Gandhi

“Your life is a reflection of how you sleep, and how you sleep is a reflection of your life.”-Dr. Rafael Pelayo

Not late at all, you may also follow the Subhashita:

“Vahela je sui rahe, Vahela uthe veer;
Bal Buddhi Dhan vadhe, Sukhma rage Sharir.”

ॐ Shubham Bhavatu.

Time Dilation of Livin World, All Live in Relativity

There are trillions of minds on earth and quadrillions in the Universe. Each mind is an “observer”, has time clock built inside, that gives feeling of the length of life. But this clock neither clicking the same all the time for all minds nor the same for each individual. Some times slower, sometimes faster. The events, environment make the clock slower or faster. Time dilate. And accordingly each life is ageing.

 

Late Vijay Sharma expressed his feelings about time in his farewell speech that his IAS career moved from 3 phases (10 Y each) of time speed. The first 10 Y were slower, the second 10Y were faster and the last 10Y were the fastest. The first 10 years of field posting was looking very long but the last went like an blink of an eye.

 

Isn’t it the same for all?

 

When we were children, the life was looking so long, and then the speed of time caught up as we grew older and older. Each individual’s clock may have different time speed depending upon the events and environment they live in.

 

My parents remembered their unhappy 10 years the most as they felt them the longest painful years of their life. (Clocks run slower in deeper gravitational wells. This is called gravitational time dilation. -General Relativity principle of Einstein).

 

Number of pleasant or unpleasant events make the clock faster or slower. In pleasing events (Sukh), time clock runs faster therefore, everyone wishes to extend the pleasure of that joy (like post retirement extension!!!). Unpleasant events (Dukh:) have more gravity to hurt deep inside, make the clock slower and therefore people do forget pleasant events-time but not the unpleasant events-time. Relatively Dukh clock is slower than the Sukh clock.

 

The living world is living in time dilation and relativity too.
