I would have changed the face of Indian Railways in five years

Dinesh Trivedi, former railway minister, spoke to a packed audience on his brief but highly eventful tenure as a the minister, when he tried to effect many fundamental changes but was stymied

“I am surprised that it took a Supreme Court to sack A Raja, who has shortchanged the country of billions of dollars and I was sacked in a few minutes when I have acted for the country, ” quipped Mr Dinesh Trivedi, former railway minister. He was speaking at a seminar titled ‘Country, Before Party and Self’, organized by Moneylife Foundation.

 “The Parliament may not represent real India and may be out of touch of reality. Indians out there know more about the state of affairs” said he.
In a short speech and highly inspiring speech, Mr Trivedi spoke on why his railway budget was important after presenting which, he had to resign. He said, “I don’t have any regrets or complaints. If I were to re-present my budget, I would present exactly the same one. I have, however, wondered what went wrong.”
 
He said, “I don’t know how it happened. Every state, every minister got something. The whole Union was happy. But when they talk about the Budget, everything but my proposals get discussed. No technical aspects, no safety measures, no financial concerns.”

He said, “The railways badly needs modernization, and I told the Planning Commission that I required Rs25 lakh crores for that purpose. One can raise the money through the following ways: public private partnerships, public funds and fare hikes.” In the short term the option was to raise fares.

Mr Trivedi said that he consulted all the top advisors and experts and they were unanimous that fares should be hiked. He said this budget started the say after he witnessed the horror of a train accident in Kanpur. He got in touch with two of India’s top nuclear scientists – Dr Anil Kakodkar and Dr K Kasturirangan. He also reached out to R Sreedharan, who set up the Delhi Metro against all odds on improving the operational aspects and Deepak Parekh on railway finances.

These experts presented their report, which showed that the Railways were in a huge mess. “After that what did you expect me to do? Throw that report out? I did whatever I had to do. I was confident that the railways would achieve its targets. And with that confidence, I prepared my speech.” He defended his decision to raise the fares, saying that people don’t travel long-distance every day, so the impact would have been minimal on the individual.

He said that there is an urgent need to modernize the railways for the people. “The way people travel in general class compartments is a human rights violation.

Everyday people lose their lives.” But this can be changed radically. After all young Indian scientists and engineers are innovating in the US which are used by foreign governments. Indian railways could have profited from their expertise too.

He also spoke about the consequences of coalition politics, where portfolios are distributed like fiefs to allies. Mr Trivedi said that now political compulsions and interests have taken precedence over the country, and that has to change. “My Budget was for India. It was not for any particular region or any state. That may have been my undoing,” he commented.

Mr Trivedi talked about his unrealized plans about Mumbai Railways. “I had plans about renovating the stations and integrating the three different lines.

Mumbai got the most from my Budget. But now, everything will be rolled back. I was rock and roll he quipped. I was rocking and they will roll. ”

He said that the felt that the media was wrong to highlight only on his ‘losing the chair’. “People die everyday, and they lay down their lives for their country. If I had done something which is good for the country, why should the focus be on a chair? Politics cannot become your profession,” he asked.

“We take a sacred oath of discharging our duties without fear, and to look at only my country and my people. Some of us have forgotten that. It was fear and favour behind my sacking. There was the fear of losing the government and someone had to be favoured,” he said.

He said “I have great respect for our Prime Minister but I think it is time for a generational change in our administration and politics. Now, people are scared of approaching the police or the authorities. Why should that be? The Vora committee report says that the country is now run by a parallel mafia administration, and general government has become irrelevant,” he said.

However, he said that he is overwhelmed by the response he got, and expressed his optimism. He said, “I know things are in a turmoil right now. But I believe that this is a great country, and things will look up.”

His talk was followed by a lively interaction with the members of the audience.

I have full confidence on Mr. Trivedi, ex-MR. After a long long time, one professionally attituded MR Indian Railways got. People or our dear customers and dedicated rail personnel perceived a ray of hope for sustainable development of IR in real sense. He presented a good budget. Just prior to him, no budget was presented except in a Election Campaigning Statement. IR lost a good MR. I hope his early come back by the people of India. In this, connection I sent a proposal to him. Please read at: http://defenceforumindia.com/blogs/pcmaj...

The speech was thought and action provoking, but what the honorable minister could not do sitting inside, how are you expecting him to do something from the outside, even if he has a strong "SPINE." It is all very good that he says that he is ready to present the same budget again, then why did not Manmohan Singh keep him and let DIDI go. He should have done that. Also it is very easy to say that there is maximum allocation for Mumbai in the rail budget but the benefit would have come had the railway budget proposal been passed and implemented. You cannot do a fantastic preparation of a plan and them leave the execution to someone who knows nothing about it. Give Mr Trivedi the 2nd chance and let him execute and implement his plan. Let him get the cooperation of all the railway employees in India to be successful. That is more important than his mere speech giving in Mumbai. It takes courage to resign but it takes even more courage to challenge the "boss' when you are right.

The biggest & the most important quality a leader must have is he/she must have a spine . People who take tough decisions are ill fated , this is true even in Corporate India. I hope we get some more educated people into politics who have the guts & conviction to bite the bullet.

Any one who has studies the budget can confirm that he would have changed the face of the Railway. But, among the politicians, who needs it. Ours is a developing country. We do not want to be a developed country.

The comments about his being politician are absurd at this stage. One should take into consideration his budget, and his confidence in the budget, which he must have well studied, and his willingness to sacrifice the post. How can he be an opportunist. It was very easy for him to rectract and continue enjoying the benefits.

The entire program was webcast live. The whole nation saw and heard.
A new campaign by netizens who supported Hazare Movement is launched.
It is LOUD AND CLEAR.
The poor public is of India unaware that some ones are doing it all for them. They illiterate in many ways than one. They should be taught. Taught to use hand held affordable devices. Taught to understand the Language used by well meaning Netizens. They are too busy in making two ends meet. There is a big divide. Gap is widening. For example
The Mumbai 5 Star
campaign was a damp
squib. Not even beggars of Bandra were amused. Thats the apathy. Hopelessness. The divide is widening. They think its a Gimmic.
BAKING Rajnaitik Roti.
A STORM IN TEA CUP.
Everyone is taking us for a ride. The Railways down the Ricksawallaws are further pressing the hardpressed citizens.
Railways is a Monopoly. COMPETITION LAWS ARE SILENT. ITS A PARALLEL GOVERNMENT. WHY NO OPEN ACCESS. FDI. GLOBALISATION. CONCURRENT. LOCAL SELF GOVERNANCE.
Are we ready to be one voice Against Injustice. Are we not breading Naxalites. Kabir said Do patan ke beech me diya Kabira roy. Nothing has changed. It has certainly worsened. Everyone is washing there hands AND GANGA IS GETTING MURKIER. As if there is no tomorrow. From India's HEAD to Bottom
Can we Boycot the System. Can we go on Strike. Say No. NO AUTO. NO RAIL. NO TRAVEL. EVEN FOE A DAY AS MARK OF OUR PROTEST. We the citizens the Sovereign Citizens are ourselves to bottom.
We are rudderless.
No direction. We are Just existing. Like any other creature. Even the so called Bold ones who dare to take Bulls by its horns. Afraid to come under the boots of new Mai Baaps.

INDIAN RAILWAYS TRANSPORTS HUMAN CARGO - THE LARGEST IN THE WORLD - & NOT HUMAN BEINGS, WHO HAVE NEEDS & CONCERNS, NONE OF WHICH ARE EVER MET!

IT IS THE BAD QUALTIY, YES BAD, OF INDIANS WHO TOLERATE ANY CRAP, ESPECIALLY FROM GOVTS. OVER DECADES.

CHINA WAS BEHIND INDIA 50 YRS. AGO & TODAY THEY HAVE WORLD'S BEST TRAINS & TECHNOLOGY TO THE POINT OF GIVING HELP TO THE USA IN RESTORING ITS RAILROADS.

AN ENCYCLOPEDIA CAN BE WRITTEN ON THE DISGUSTING STATE OF IR.

SAMPLE: MILLIOINS OF PAX ARE FORCED TO GO UP & DOWN THOUSANDS OF STARICASES @ STATIONS PATHETICALLY WITH THEIR BAGGAGE! NO SANE COUNTRY WORTH ITS SENSIBILITY ALLOWS THIS!

RESERVATION SYSTEM, ESPECIALY TATKAL IS A FARCE & A HOAX! MANY OTHER FEATURES ARE LEFT TO THE IDIOSYNCRACIES OF THE MINISTER IN THE MUSICAL CHAIR!

MAMTA UNDID WHAT LALOO DID TO AN EXTENT!
THEY PLAY HAVOC WITH MILLONS OF PASSENGERS IN ALLWAYS @ THE FANCY OF THEIR SHORT CHANGED, POOR & LIMITED KNOWLEDGE & EXPERIENCE

People want improvement in the railways and not mere some cut in fare. Train travellers drink one bottle water for Rs.15/-. They can pay. What is important is that the the enhanced fare must not find its way to some scam. If proper use of funds is ensured people will be happy to contribute yet more because the progress will then be visible and pleasant.

* Like Mr. Sreedharan of Delhi-Metro-Train, #Dinesh Trivedi or any Rail-Minister for that matter should b given free-hand to complete his tenure, without any politics or interference, in NATIONS-interests...!
* Those who can PAY their fares should b HIKED by 50% (for AC-class) & those who can't their fares should b decreased by 50% ( for non-AC's)...!!
* Railways have to undergo n under-take Mordernisation & there can b no-security & safety lapses, which in no-way can b COMPROMISED ...!!!

what ever you have said for railways ministry is true for any other minsitry also.

For God's sake, do not compare Mr. Sreedharan with an opportunist like Trivedi.


Mr. Trivedi used to sing hymns for Didi, once he got the boot, he has started singing different tunes.

Our media has taken so much to him, that i am shocked that folks are inviting him to give lectures

HE DID NOT SAY 25 LAKH CRORE BUT 10% OF IT. RETURNABLE IN THREE YEARS.
Regarding funding freight was subsidising fares. But freight increase burden poor man who may hardly use trains for travel but for his daily needs. He offered Maruti cars delivery through special wagons.
The term generation change he referred was Railway Modernisation.
To a question I asked him that if Mamataji realises the sentiments of the public in this seminar which is webcast live and asks him to chair again will he consider, he said yes he will.
He agreed to be in any movement that will take country to value based politics in Gandhian peaceful way.
I wish Mamta comes to senses if she wants to come out from tunnel to holistic vision with wider horizon. Its a learning curve that has to be accelerated. Only if she keeps her cool and listens to the right advisors.
And for Kunika Lals suggestion clean the system he is prepared to do the dirty his hanfs. All the best Mr Trivedi. You may not be Gandhi who became Gandhi our Nations father due to his thrown of a Railway compartment but you arr blessed to be no less than being thrown out of the Railways itself. Let new history be in making. And this time by Mr Dinesh Trivedi yes YOU SIR. LET US REWRITE OUR CONSTITUTION TO WEED OUT WORMS. JAI HIND.

He actively encouraged and killed the proven Indian ACD project in favour of the Italian company . Then he talks of Indian scientists doing good work in USA. This gentleman is a dubious character. The experts he chose are the most irrelevant for the railway technologies. He is neither true to self nor to the country.It is not heroic to raise fares - just to make Rs 3500 cr. Then talk of Rs 5 lac cr etc to Planning Commission does not make sense. The numbers can be produced with pocket calculators. I feel sad many think this man is genuine on top his such a superficial Minister. Railway is a serious business and he dealt in a very casual manner.Then to act so righteous about his work is truly amazing. Media if taken in by this show, only shows the lack of depth and understanding of what is happening in our country.Modernisation is needed. But the approach is not to go out and open shops all over the world to buy off the shelf goods! It is amusing this gentleman saying country ,party and self and taking Bhagat Singh's name-- my God-- a non-performer with no personal achievements to show all these decades, suddenly wants to elevate himself, just by fighting with his party boss. Fighting party boss does not make him a great hero. It is intriguing why he chose to revive and clear the Italian project at huge cost to railways , dumping the Indian innovations, while glibly talking of Indian young scientists doing well in foreign countries.

ACD is anti collision device. IT IS COMMON WITH ANOTHER ELECTRIC TRACTION, THE VERTICAL TRANSPORTATION. TWO CABS IN THE SAME SHAFT. IT IS SAFETY BEFORE THE ELEVATORS. OTIS DID IT IN PARIS EXPO. NO CHANCES. ZERO TOLERANCE. FAIL SAFE MEANS LIFT STOPS IF SAFETY CHAIN IS BROKEN. MAY BE DIDNT WANT TAKE A CHANCE AND ITALIAN MAY HAVE CONVINCED HIM
NO COLLUSION OFCOURSE. BUTE I DOUBT ABOUT KASTURI OR KAKODKAR THE NUKE GUYS. TAKE IT FROM AN ELWVAROR MAN. IF RAILWAYS ARE SINCERE I CAN HELP AND HERE I AGREE WITH SHRI RAJARAMJI. I CAN JOIN IN EXAMINING INDIAN ACD BEING FROM ELEVATOTOR FIELD AND LET DT ARRANGE FOR OPEN ACCESS TO THE DECISION MAKING PROCESS. BUT IT ALL DEPENDS ON THE TOP BOSS.
I APPRECIATE DT ON CONSULTING ALL AND SUNDRY BUT I AGREE WITH RAJARAM TOO ON NOT CONSULTING ONE WHO MATTERED MOST HIS BOSS. SHE WAS ANGRY AND IT WAS MEANT BY DESIGN RATHER THAN BY DEFAULT.

Protest against President’s land grab set to spread countrywide

The Indian Ex-Servicemen Movement (ISEM) and related defence NGOs have begun galvanising support

On Saturday evening, around 150 citizens, mostly jawans and retired officers gathered at the National War Memorial in Pune Cantonment to protest against President Pratibha Patil’s land grab by lighting candles.

The Delhi headquarters of the Indian Ex-Servicemen Movement (IESM) has already amplified the protest. In an email to Col Suresh Patil (retired) and Comm Ravindra Pathak who are spearheading the campaign from Pune, Major Gen Adityajung Bahadur Jaini wrote that the IESM has started galvanising support at their end through their national and international network of members. IESM, Delhi is also staging a big rally at Jantar Mantar on 22nd April wherein besides their core issue of one rank-one pension, they would be protesting against the President’s post-retirement home issue. “Although we are not at the forefront of this protest as our mainstay is the pension issue, we are supporting the Justice of Jawans in its endeavour.”

The anger against President Patil’s brazen encroachment on 2,42,000 sq ft of defence land against the backdrop of Pune, which is the headquarters of the Southern Command, facing crisis of accommodation for its several thousands of its serving soldiers and officers, has echoed not only in all parts of the country, but around the world as well.

States Col Patil (retd), “We have received a communication from retired Air Force officers from Dubai who have joined this campaign. Retired defence personnel from Toronto have also joined it. Similarly, I have got calls from Vishakhapatnam, Jabalpur and Lucknow who are all fired up to join the protest until the President gives back the land. What tugged my heart most was when an 86 year old lady from Mhau, Ms Sohoni whose 93 year old husband (who recently died) has fought the World War II, called me up yesterday. She told me that she had approached President Patil in connection with a land that the government gave them but it was grabbed. Ms Patil did not address the issue. Hence, she has also joined our campaign.”

The two bungalows—No 38 and 26A—both of which have been illegally demolished to make way for President Pratibha Patil’s palatial bungalow were studded with more than 100-year old trees. These have been mercilessly cut down and are lying all around the construction area. Col Patil is taking up the issue with the Principal Director, Defence Estates. He states, “Despite merciless tree cutting, there seems to have been no legal action. We are going to first question him about what kind of permission was given to fell the stalwart trees. Secondly, as per the law, the local military authority has to auction them officially and deposit the revenue in the treasury. Has it done that?”

In a day or two, Col Patil and Comm Pathak  are dashing off a letter to Chief Justice of India, SH Kapadia asking him to intervene and consider this letter as a writ petition.

Clearly, the battle-lines are drawn until victory (who’s will it be?). Meanwhile,  enthused by the world wide outcry over the President’s brazenness in using defence land for her personal benefit, founder of Justice for Jawans (JFJ) Col (retd) Suresh Patil, Indian Ex-servicemen Movement’s (IESM) head of Pune Ravindra Pathak and former Navy officer and RTI activist Anup Awasti say they will not stop till the President backtracks from the land.

there is NO TRUE DEMOCRACY IN INDIA! IT IS A HOG WASH IN THE FORM OF FARCE-O-CRACY!

THE BEST TRUE DEMOCRATIC COUNTRY IS THE U.S.A. WHERE EVEN A PRESIDENT IS A PUPPET IN FRONT OF THE LAW & THE CONSTITUTION.

IN INDIA, EVEN MINIONS IN A CORPORATION & PANCHAYAT HAVE A CLOUT OF "UNTOUCHABLES", EVEN GOD CAN'T DARE TO BRUSH PAST THE HIGHEST & THE MIGHTIEST!

EVEN MONARCHIAL GULF COUNTRIES HAVE SUBTLE DEMOCRACY NOT FOUND IN THE WORLD'S LARGEST FARCE-O-CRACY CALLED 'DEMOCRACY' - A TOOL FOR POLITICIANS @ ELEXION TIMES & THEN PUT IN COLD STORAGE UNTIL NEXT ONE! THEN, THEY CAN BE ANYTHING - AUTOCRACY TO DICTATORSHIP & ALL THE IN-BETWEENS!

its preety simple. They will fudge numbers, find some other cause of that land donation, may be erect a statue of shivaji or ambedkar on small part, find some law in the books. There are so many ways. then they will reduce the number to her allocated house area, which is perfectly legal. Case dismissed.

Please keep an eye, also, on this case involving the Vice COAS who was then also in charge of Pune as Southern Command headman:-

Dear Malq,
I wanted to do positive things for india, and not just keep fighting against negative things of people who are actually supposed to do positive things. That is the pain, as even after a lot of efforts these people find a work around and fighting people are made fools of. that is my point. Look at the bank robbery by Ajit Powar, How the cag report is hated so on and so forth. where all is the common man supposed to fight? and how is he supposed to survive too?

CIC fines own CPIO for delaying information

Central Information Commissioner Shailesh Gandhi ruled, “The award of compensation for harassment by public authorities not only compensates the individual and satisfies him personally, but also helps in curing a social evil”

In probably the first reflexive ruling, the Central Information Commission has issued a show-cause notice to its own CPIO (chief public information officer) and asked him to pay Rs3,000 as compensation to an appellant who was given piecemeal information, that too after much delay.

In a recent order, central information commissioner Shailesh Gandhi ruled, “Harassment of a common man by public authorities is socially abhorring and legally impermissible. It may harm him personally but the injury to society is far more grievous. The award of compensation for harassment by public authorities not only compensates the individual and satisfies him personally, but also helps in curing a social evil. It may result in improving the work culture and help in changing the outlook. The Commission in exercise of its power under Section 19(8)(b) of the RTI (Right to Information) Act awards a compensation of Rs3,000 to the appellant for the loss and detriment suffered by him in having to pursue the appeals and getting the information late. The Commission recommends that the secretary, CIC may consider recovering this amount from the salary of the persons responsible for this.”

The Commission also directed the PIO to provide the information before 10 May 2012 and the cheque be sent to the appellant before 1st June.

On 7th September, 2010, the appellant Haroon Siddiqui had filed a query with the CIC, asking for a copy of rules under which the deputy registrar authorized to return the second appeal and state the reasons on record for the return. He had earlier asked for information related to a CIC ruling involving the Indian Farmers Fertiliser Cooperative (IFFCO) and had asked for the company’s reply to the CIC. He received mostly evasive answers from the CPIO and deputy secretary S Padmanabha. Dissatisfied with the answers, Mr Siddiqui filed the first appeal, which was rejected.

The CIC deemed that the CPIO’s refusal to disclose IFFCO’s reply was ‘erroneous’. The ruling said, “This refusal was erroneous since Section 11 is only a procedure which requires the PIO to inform the third party of his intention to disclose the information if the information was received in confidence. After receiving any objection from the third party, if the information is exempt as per the provisions of Section 8(1) or 9, the information may be denied by the PIO after giving reasons. In the instant case the respondent states that there is no evidence of any letter having been sent to the third party seeking objection. Besides, the appellant has a right to get any counter statements or submission made by the opposite party. It appears that a completely unreasonable rejection was made and the appellant has not received the information so far at all.”

Mr Gandhi said that Mr Padmanabha is directed give his reasons to the Commission to show cause why penalty should not be levied on him. He will also send the information sent to the appellant as per this decision and submit the Speed Post receipt as proof of having sent the information to the appellant, along with the copy of the information.

it is an historic judgement given by Gandhi. Other IC's should also learn lesson from it, specially those who enter into close door meetings with respondents and even after noting repeated failures of PIO & AA refusing information or delaying to reach CIC, does not bother to pass order of penalty and compensation.

Thanks to Sri Shailesh Gandhi RTI is surviving even though on a ventilator. I do not know if there are any other information commissioners who have even run through the law that they are required to enforce! Even in the notorious judges assets case the bench headed by the then CIC Wajahat Habibullah failed to implement the law by refusing to impose the penalty under Sec 20 on the then CJI, K G Balakrishnan, who was the deemed PIO in the case!
