Gatherings, political, religious or any other kind at this time were not at all justified. Rise in number of Covid cases after this is an ample proof that the decision was wrong. Now the entire country is paying for one silly mistake of the government. 


Say ‘no’ to re-employment of retired personnels

There should be firm ‘no “ of deploying retired personals in various organizations while unemployed young qualified youths are staring for a job and should be given chance to reduce part of the unemployment. While , country is burning because of Gargantuan problem of unemployment ,qualified youths are yearning for even menial jobs ,publish the newspapers that BTech , MTechhave even applied for cleaner posts oxymoron to same various government organizations are still resorting to the employment of retired personals to escape the difficult process of recruitment There is no argument of thought that the retired people have had good exposure in government machinery but at the same time it cannot be ignored that they worked in an environment which has become primitive with every passing day and are not savvy with technological advancements. The youth on the other side are having preparedness, capacity and enthusiasm besides better connection with the electronic dispensation . It is not even justified in case of constitutional posts like UPSC, CIC CAT etc. and for others it is truly buffoonery to take retired people and not giving chance to better qualified youth to reduce a pinch in the serpentine queue of unemployment. The youth are available even at the lower financial compensation and can evaluate their strength and weakness in a more productive manner it will be good for the country if a strong missing is issued from PM office or from DOPT to allControlling institutions ,not to prefer reemployment of retired personnel who have become primitive ,vestigial ,forgive me to write so because with the technological advancements ,yesterday is always vestigial for tomorrow and even for temporary jobs, recruitment be done from plethora of energetic youth who are staring at govt for providing jobs to them.

Marital status mentioned by wife in the bank account opening form

The appellant requested for status mentioned by his wife in the bank account opening form regarding her marital status like whether Single/ Married/ Separated/ Divorcee as a matrimonial dispute between the appellant and his wife was pending before the Hon’ble Family Court. In the second appeal, he stated that he is husband of Mrs. Nisha and has every right to know about the marital status of his spouse which could be decisive factor in deciding the maintenance order. The CIC held that the basic protection afforded by virtue of the exemption from disclosure enacted under Section 8(1)(j) cannot be lifted or disturbed by a private dispute between husband and wife, unless the petitioner is able to justify how such disclosure would be in ‘public interest’.


A delicate balance has to be maintained between the transparency and the fundamental right to privacy. Whenever there is a conflict between two rights, the same have to be reconciled and harmony has to be maintained.
