Hi Friends,

Even as I launch this today ( my 80th Birthday ), I realize that there is yet so much to say and do.

There is just no time to look back, no time to wonder,"Will anyone read these pages?"

With regards,

A Half-hearted Measure ?





Following report appeared in today's news papers :



[  The Reserve Bank of India will share FDI-related information with country's intelligence agencies -- IB and RAW -- to check black money from entering the country.


During the meeting of "Working Group on Intelligence Apparatus", representatives of Intelligence Bureau felt that it is important to have the information. It was decided that RBI should share with IB and Cabinet Secretariat, information on FDI which actually enters the country, the sources said.


"Hence, it was felt that they should form a database on it and share details with both IB and RAW," said a senior official in the Cabinet Secretariat, requesting anonymity.

The RBI has also been asked to consider displaying this information on its website, he said  ]


This is just not good enough to curb the menace of BLACK MONEY / CORRUPTION / MONEY LAUNDERING

I , once again request Shri Arun Jaitleyji to implement my following two year old suggestion ( 04 April 2014  ) :

E - Governance ?


Can e-Governance help eliminate corruption  ?


Most certainly


Look at the following , partial list of Central and State Agencies set up to fight fraud , money-laundering , corruption , tax-evasion , economic crimes etc :



*  Public Accounts Committee           (  PAC  )


*  Central Vigilance Commission        (  CVC  )


*  Central Information Commission     (  CIC  )


*  Research and Analysis Wing           (  RAW  )


*  Serious Fraud Investigation Office   (  SFIO  )


*  Information Bureau                        (  IB   )


*  Economic Offence Wing                   (  EOW  )


*  Central Bureau of Investigation        (  CBI  )


*  Department of Revenue Intelligence (  DIR  )


*  Comptroller and Auditor General       (  CAG  )


*  Anti Corruption Bureaus ( States ).... (  ACB  )


*  Enforcement Directorate                    (  ED   )


*  Lok  Ayukts    (  States   )


*  Lok Pal           ( Central  )




Despite such an army of Agencies , how do corrupt manage to get away  ?


Or , in case caught , manage to delay delivery of punishment for years  ?


No doubt , there must be several reasons , including , inter - agency rivalry to get credit - something difficult to eliminate altogether


But , I believe , the most important reason is :



Lack of a COMMON  / COMPUTERIZED database of all offences / cases / persons being investigated

And , which is readily " Accessible " to all of these Agencies , all over the country ( 24 * 365 )


Already , every Agency compiles huge dossiers on " Suspects " in its own " Departmental Database " , which is never shared with other Agencies , leading to ,



*   Huge amount of duplication of efforts / information


*   Fractured / scattered profiles of " Suspects "


*   Enormous waste of time / resources



What will help  ?



*    Dismantling of individual departmental databases


*    Merging of all Agency-wise databases into a SINGLE / UNIQUE database


*    All Agencies to enter their findings / data / info into this COMMON
      database , with nothing preserved on local computers


*    All data-entry FORMS to be ONLINE . No paper forms at all


*    All local computers connected to ultra-secure Network ( Encrypted )


*    " Access Rights " to individuals , based on Biometric Identification




Will BJP want to make this , a prominent promise in their Poll-Manifesto , likely to be released on 7th April  ? 

 ( Congress /  AAP missed this boat  ! )


It is high time political parties stop talking of motherhood in vague terms and start telling the voters ,


" If you vote us to power , this is precisely what we will do , to bring about E-GOVERNANCE  - and do it within 6 months of assuming power "
