Editorial : COURT JUDGEMENTS FOR SALE & PARLIAMENTARY ACTS /
GOVERNMENT NOTIFICATIONS FOR SALE IN INDIA ?

In India criminalization of police , politics , judiciary , bar &
public service has taken place . the corruption  is rampant , in their
greed for money public servants are auctioning off their official
duties. These corrupt public servants are violating the
CONSTITUTIONALLY GUARANTEED FUNDAMENTAL / HUMAN RIGHTS OF CITIZENS OF
INDIA & are also obstructing the citizens from performing their
FUNDAMENTAL DUTIES  AS  PRESCRIBED BY CONSTITUTION OF INDIA.
 
Take for instance , our publication  has made numerous public appeals
to authorities for justice , concerning public welfare , no justice in
sight till date. We have made a police complaint to the honourable
director general of police on 10-12-2004  in a press meet at Mysore
journalist's association , no action was taken . however when I
demanded information under RTI act about this issue in mid 2007 , the
police authorities gave me half truth to cover-up their inaction. I do
once again hereby demand the honourable DGP of Karnataka , to initiate
action  based on my complaint dated 10-12-2004 & also request the
appropriate auhorities to provide justice in all other cases raised by
our publication . Hereby , I do once again offer my CONDITIONAL
SERVICES to the government in apprehending tax thieves & corrupt
public servants , anti-nationals , are you ready ?
 
Recently , during no confidence motion against  the present
government of India headed by prime minister shri.Manmohan singh , we
have seen the allegations by some members of parliament that they were
offered crores of rupees & more just to support the present
government. From where political parties get such huge money to
finance these activities , from big corporates by way of black money.
What is the benefit for these corporates ? they invest few crores to
bribe public servants , lobby for favourable parliamentary acts /
government rules . after the enactment of favourable government rules
, they reap in profits to the tune of crores of rupees. To top it up ,
various violations of law by these corporates are swept under the
carpet by authorities.
 
Take for instance , the recent government rule with  respect to
allotment of 3G SPECTRUM  to mobile telephone service providers & the
financial incentives to domestic manufacturers of petroleum products,
all of which benefits a few corporates but in turn drains our
exchequer by thousands of crores of rupees.
 
  We do have highest respect for our judiciary , parliament & all
public servants. But we don't have respect for the corrupt , we
despise the corrupt – the corrupt are parasites of our society , they
take oath as public servants to serve people , they take huge salary &
perks from the government , where as they ultimately serve the rich
criminals who give them bribe. Public respect  cann't be forcibly
taken by showing them the dagger of  privilege of contempt motion . if
the public servant is honest , of impeccable integrity , works for
public welfare , naturally public will show respect to him.
 
This is an appeal to honest few in public service – judiciary ,
politics , police , bar & public service , to catch their corrupt
colleagues. Thank you. JAI HIND . VANDE MATARAM.
 
Your's sincerely,
Nagaraj.M.R.
 

CAN JUDGEMENT BE MANIPULATED IN INDIAN COURTS OF JUSTICE ? - WHY NOT PRISON SENTENCE FOR GUILTY SUPREME COURT ADVOCATES ?
 
  New Delhi, August 21 The Delhi High Court imposed a four-month ban on
senior advocate R K Anand and colleague I U Khan on Thursday for
interfering with judicial proceedings in the high-profile BMW
hit-and-run case. A fine of Rs 2,000 was levied as well.
On May 30, 2007, television channel NDTV caught both lawyers in a
"sting" operation, conniving with key prosecution witness Suniel
Kulkarni to get main accused Sanjeev Nanda off the hook.
A High Court Bench comprising Justices Madan B Lokur and Manmohan
Sarin found the two guilty of criminal contempt.
"The entire material leaves a bitter taste in the mouth about the
goings-on in the BMW case. There is no manner of doubt whatsoever that
there was complicity between Mr Khan and Mr Anand... There can be
absolutely no doubt that Mr Khan and Mr Anand were, somehow or the
other, more than mixed up in the BMW case," observed the court, which
had taken suo motu cognizance of the expose the day after it was aired.
"Mr Anand and Mr Khan are prohibited from appearing in this court
(Delhi High Court) or courts subordinate to it for four months from
today. However, they are free to discharge their professional duties
in terms of consultation, advice, conferences, opinions, etc," said
the Bench.
The court desisted from commenting on the conduct of Kulkarni, saying
it would not be "proper" to do so.
Though the verdict comes solely on basis of the CDs and transcripts of
the sting operation, the Bench said, "the unshakeable truth is that Mr
Anand is guilty of criminal contempt of court".
Contemplating a fit punishment, the Bench wondered how many in the
legal fraternity had had been taken by surprise to find Anand
indulging in such "sharp practices". "Mr Anand has held many
prestigious elective positions in the legal fraternity, including the
Bar Council of Delhi. He has also been a Member of the Rajya Sabha,"
noted the Bench.
The court said it knew Khan for his legal acumen and forensic skills —
"perhaps the reason why he was appointed Special Public Prosecutor in
the BMW case". High expectations over Khan fell apart when his conduct
"betrayed the trust that prosecution reposed in him... what he did was
perhaps beyond the realm of contemplation of the prosecuting agency".
Chastising the two for their misconduct, the Bench said: "We are not
dealing with a young lawyer who, driven by ambition and desire...
transgresses the limits or unwittingly or unknowingly commits criminal
contempt. We are dealing with senior advocates, who are expected to
conduct themselves as gentlemen and role models for younger members of
the Bar."
The court forwarded a recommendation that the two be "stripped of
their designations as senior advocates". The High Court Registrar
General will put up the court's recommendation before Chief Justice AP
Shah within a month.
In response to the verdict, the Delhi Bar Association president,
advocate Rajiv Khosla, said about 20,000 lawyers from district courts
were going on strike on August 22 in protest.
R K Anand
Began legal career in Delhi's Tis Hazari Court as a civil lawyer in
1967. Appointed government counsel in 1976. In 2000, JMM nominated him
to Rajya Sabha from Jharkhand. Appointed AICC observer for Assembly
polls in Himachal Pradesh in February 2003.
High-profile cases:
* In 1980, represented the late Indira Gandhi in a property litigation
filed by Maneka Gandhi after Sanjay Gandhi's death
* Narasimha Rao in the JMM bribery and the St Kitts case
* Chandraswami in the FERA violation case
* H K L Bhagat in the 1984 anti-Sikh riots case
* Former external affairs minister Natwar Singh's son Jagat Singh in
the murder/suicide of his wife Natasha Singh
I U Khan
One of the top five criminal lawyers in Capital. He was charging a fee
of only Re 1 in the BMW case. Began his career in late 1960s, and came
intio spotlight in 1980s.
* Defended Sushil Sharma in the tandoor murder case, Subash Gupta in
the Personal Point triple murder, former Youth Congress President
Romesh Sharma in several cases and Tony Gill in Jessica Lall murder case
When prosecution & defence lawyer together team up along with corrupt
police / public servants and manipulate evidences / records , the
court is helpless and will acquit the accussed for lack of evidences
eventhough the presiding judge is of impeccable integrity , honesty ,
he is help less. Add to this , if the presiding judge happens to be
corrupt & teams up with the criminal nexus , the result is devastating
, the rich criminal will get away & the innocent will suffer
punishment in some cases even death sentence.
 
Who will bell these few corrupt among the judiciary , bar , police &
public service ? why  not prison sentence for two leading advocates
on criminal charges of contempt of court , destruction of evidences ?
are they above law ? why favouritism by court to the guilty in
awarding punishment to guilty two advocates as they happen to be
political influential ? will the court let a common man so leniently
for the same charges ? In the past cases dealt by these corrupt duo
advocates , there are possibilities that the same tactics of
manipulation of evidences , prosecution is done to win the cases , to
free the rich criminals , why not review of the cases dealt by these
corrupt advocates ?
 
The honest few among judiciary , bar  , police & public service must
uphold our constitution , rule of law & bring to book their corrupt
colleagues. JAI HIND. VANDE MATARAM.
 
Your's sincerely,
Nagaraj.m.r.
 

CASH FOR JUDGEMENT

 
Chandigarh, August 22: Punjab and Haryana High Court Judge Nirmal
Yadav who has gone on leave after her name is said to have figured in
the statements of the main accused in the case involving the delivery
of cash at another High Court Judge's house, said today that she was a
"victim of a vilification campaign."
Speaking to The Indian Express at her Sector 24 residence here today,
Justice Yadav said that "some influential persons were trying to shift
the focus on her to save the real accused."
Justice Yadav denied that former Haryana Additional Advocate General
Sanjeev Bansal had talked to her on phone on August 13 when Bansal's
clerk "mistakenly" delivered a bag containing Rs 15 lakh to the
residence of Justice Nirmaljit Kaur, another sitting Judge of the High
Court.
"Let any agency prove that I talked to Sanjeev Bansal on phone either
on that day or any day in the past one month," Justice Yadav said. "I
am ready to face all consequences if this allegation is found true. I
have had no dealings with Bansal. I have not received any money from
Bansal or any of his associates. I am sure I will get justice."
Justice Yadav said she had explained her position to High Court Chief
Justice T S Thakur and had "proceeded on leave." She said she would
not hear any case until her name is cleared.
Sources close to her said that during her meeting with Justice Thakur
yesterday evening, in which some other senior judges were also
present, Justice Yadav offered to proceed on leave to "maintain the
highest traditions of Indian judiciary." Justice Thakur told The
Indian Express that he had not asked Justice Yadav to proceed on leave
and that it was her own decision.
It is learnt that in her meeting with Justice Thakur, Yadav vehemently
denied any role in the entire role.
While acknowledging that she and some other members of her family had
bought a plot of 11.1 bighas of land (see accompanying story) at
village Rihun Pargana near Kumharhatti in Solan district of Himachal
Pradesh on August 14, Yadav is learnt to have denied that the money
for purchasing the land came from Bansal or Ravinder Singh, the Delhi
businessman, who is also named in the case.
"Can't a judge buy legal property? Let the police or any other
investigating agency prove that the money for the deal was provided by
Bansal or Singh," she is learnt to have told the Chief Justice. But
she is learnt to have acknowledged, in her meeting with the Chief
Justcie, that she knew Ravinder Singh. She is learnt to have said that
she came to know him through some other judges.
Meanwhile, highly placed sources in the High Court confirmed that
Chief Justice Thakur is awaiting the return of Chief Justice of India
KG Balakrishnan from Brazil to apprise him of the developments in the
case. The Chief Justice is learnt to have asked the administrative
committee, comprising senior judges, to monitor the case on a daily
basis.
The Rs 15-lakh delivery: Story So Far
•August 13: Parkash Ram, an assistant to Haryana's Additional Advocate
General Sanjeev Bansal, delivers a parcel containing Rs 15 lakh at the
residence of Justice Nirmaljit Kaur of the Punjab and Haryana High
Court. Justice Kaur calls the police.
•Rajeev Gupta, Bansal's friend and a property dealer, tells the police
that the money reached there by mistake and it was meant for Nirmal
Singh, another property dealer. Chandigarh Police decline to hand over
the cash. Bansal is questioned
•August 16: A case is registered against Bansal, Parkash Ram and
Delhi-based hotelier Ravinder Singh who allegedly organised the money
•Bansal resigns as Addl AG and surrenders on August 19
•August 21: Rajeev Gupta, the property dealer who claimed the money
was meant for Nirmal Singh, is arrested. The Inspector General of
Police sends a report to the Chief Justice of Punjab and Haryana High
Court. The report says that the money was meant for another judge.
•August 22: Justice Nirmal Yadav proceeds on leave
 
Caught in controversy is Solan plot that judge, 16 others purchased
CHANDIGARH, SOLAN, August 22: On August 14, according to revenue
records, a plot measuring 11.1 bighas in Solan was purchased by
Justice Nirmal Yadav and others for Rs 5, 52, 500. Details of the
transaction, obtained by The Indian Express, show that the land was
purchased by her and 16 others from six persons, all residents of
village Rihun Pargana, near Kumharhatti in the Solan district of
Himachal Pradesh.
 
This purchase is said to have figured in the meeting between Justice
Yadav and the High Court Chief Justice yesterday. Justice Yadav is
said to have told the Chief Justice: "Can't a judge buy legal
property? Let the police or any other investigating agency prove that
the money for the deal was provided by (Sanjeev) Bansal or Ravinder
Singh."
The purchasers and sellers obtained permission from the Himachal
Pradesh Government under Section 118 of the Himachal Pradesh Tenancy
Act. Solan Naib Tehsildar N S Chauhan has confirmed on record that
that the deal had been registered as per the details we have.
The land was sold by residents of village including Baldev; Narinder
Kumar; Surinder Kumar; Rajinder Kumar; Bimla Devi and Amar Singh. The
sellers have given a General Power of Attorney to Surinder Kumar (one
of the partners among the sellers), who executed a sale agreement in
favour of the buyers.
Those named as purchasers (partners) in the land deal include Suruchi,
a resident of House no. 3, Sector 14, Gurgaon; Trisha Chaudhary; Ram
Niwas; Rajender Yadav; Chiranjeev; Latika; Deepak; Sunita; Vivek;
Capt. NT Puri; Devinder Singh; Shakuntla; Kuldip Singh Yadav; Ajay
Yadav; Sushank Puri; Mohit (all residents of house no. 1111, Sector
11, Panchkula) and Punjab and Haryana High Court Justice Nirmal Yadav.

Three booked in judge bribery case
Haryana Addl Advocate General among booked
 

Chandigarh, August 16: Three persons, including Additional Advocate
General of Haryana Sanjeev Bansal, were on Saturday booked for an
attempt to bribe a Punjab and Haryana High Court Judge.
The other two are Bansal's munshi Parkash, who had carried Rs 15 lakh
to the residence of High Court judge Nirmaljit Kaur on Wednesday
night, and Ravinder Singh, a Delhi-based businessman who has a hotel
in Karol Bagh.
The munshi was taken into custody while a police party has been
despatched to Delhi to nab Singh.
Assistant Superintendent of Police Madhur Verma said the amount was
supposed to be handed over to some other public servant but was
mistakenly delivered at Kaur's house.
An FIR was lodged after Kaur complained to the police. She also
reported the matter to the Chief Justice.
Police said Singh had allegedly paid Bansal a huge amount to get
settled a criminal case pending in the High Court. The case is due to
come up for hearing on Wednesday.
Earlier, Singh had claimed the amount was pertaining to a property
deal he had struck with a resident of Panchkula. The money was
supposed to be delivered to one Nirmal Singh and was mistakenly
delivered at the judge's house.
Verma, however, said the preliminary investigation had ruled out the
possibility of the amount being related to any property deal.
"Bansal failed to give a detailed account of the cash. He produced
some papers pertaining to some property in Panchkula but that did not
carry any weight. Our investigations caught him on the wrong foot and,
therefore, we booked him along with two others under the Prevention of
Corruption Act and criminal conspiracy," he added.
Bansal has been handling several high-profile cases. He is one of the
dozen-odd Additional Advocate Generals appointed by the Haryana
Government about two years ago.
 
Corrupt judge in Allahabad High Court
   Posted By: Rajeev
State: Uttar Pradesh   District: Allahabad   City: Allahabad
 
* Conversation with Vigilance Officer – Audio Wave File
* Conversation with Registrar General – Audio Wave File
* Letter that CBI has forwarded to Registrar General – Tif Format

If the Judges go corrupt, then it is GOD who will give one justice
when one go to heaven or hell. It is a Irony that I filed a complaint
against a District and Session Judge who later promoted to High Court
of Allahabad. I wish the God will serve HIS justice to Hon'ble Justice
Umeshware Pandey, now enjoying at High Court and selling (Mis)Justice
at Rs 100000 per page!!
 
Here I am elaborating what had happened. In 1994, two people name
Parashram Agarwal and Mohan Lal Agarwal wanted to grab my father's
property and in March 1994 they beat him and pulled his legs( just
imagine the pain) making him handicapped for life. Then in court those
guys were merely sentenced for 6 months in Jail, but they did not went
for the jail for single day or hour and appealed to Sessions Court and
then the corrupt Judge Umeshwar Pandey took the bribe of Rs 200000 in
Criminal Revision number 13/2000 from Parashram Agarwal and Mohan Lal.
It is a shame on Umeshwar Pandey that he cannot see a Handicapped man
suffering for last 9 years and even then not given the justice.
 
Umeshwar Pandey has taken this bribe via his Steno name some G. D. Gupta.
 
It is the habit of Parashram and MohanLal to record the conversation
while giving bribes on hidden audio recorder and the same cassette can
be recovered if the authority try. It is been 8 months since I have
informed various authorities by registered letters and phone calls
from USA for no action till date.
 
I have spoken to Mr Jagmohan Paliwal who was posted as Vigilance
Officer for no action till date and the recording attached is from
Sept 2002.
 
Similarly I have spoken with Mr. K. S. Rakhra who was posted as
Registrar General but no action till date, and the recoding shown is
from Sept 2002 too.
 
Even CBI has forwarded my letter to Registrar General, but no action
is taken on that one too.
 
I have emaild my plea to few High court Judges too for no response.
 
I just hope GOD is there who will give some justice. But the corrupt
Judges should stop imitating as GOD they are devil actually.
 
The only solution can be people make a limit. How much money a person
needs. I often think about a story that a saint refused to take the
food as he already got the food for today and he do not want to
collect for tomorrow. But I don't know why people want to generate
money for 7 generations. If a careful analysis and investigation is
done Umeshwar Pamdey has Black money worth 3 generations. I guess
instead of Lakhs and Carore now corruption should be measured in
generations.
 
Education is important. People need to understand the meaning of
freedom truly. IF I say boldly India is still not free. People have
mentality that they need to pay to Government officials for work. This
mentality has to be removed.
 
Thanks
Rajeev

 
HC suspends judge over corruption complaints
 
 
AHMEDABAD: The Gujarat High Court has suspended a fast track court
judge in Rajpipla after receiving several complaints of corruption and
favouritism against her.
 
Rajpipla fast track court Judge DL Desai was suspended on Thursday
evening after a primary inquiry held by the court's vigilance
department said that the complaints against her had substance. Further
inquiry against her will be conducted by the department. Besides the
complaint of favouritism in Rajpipla, where she was presently posted,
the Desai was also accused of similar charges and issuing certificates
without proper verification in Bharuch, where the she was discharging
her duty as a principal district judge, the High Court authorities said.
 
The HC administration seems to be seriously taking the issue of
corruption prevailing in Gujarat's judiciary, as Desai's is the fourth
suspension in last three months. Earlier in May, a judge in Surat's
court, AN Vinjhola was suspended after similar complaints against him.
The court administration also found him in possession of property out
of proportion considering his known sources of income. Last month, two
judges were suspended on charges of corruption. The Ahmedabad city
civil Judge NM Thakor and KV Kakkad were also suspended by the HC
after holding preliminary inquiry into complaints against them.
 
All the four suspended judges are now facing departmental inquiry.
 
  Honor  of Parliament for sale by few members
it is a shame that recently four members of parliament were caught red
handed on charges of human trafficking that too misusing their
official passports. We have seen in the past various crimes by M.Ps -
   questions for money , kickbacks , etc.  this present sorry state of
affairs is due to the caste consciousness of the electorate. The
public instead of seeing the honesty , integrity of electoral
candidates looks just at his caste , in this trend they elect persons
who belongs to their caste even though he is dishonest , untrustworthy
& a criminal . Now , the number of criminals , density of criminals  (
who are masterminds in evading conviction ) is more in elected houses
of people's representatives – parliament , state assemblies ,
panchayaths , corporations , etc than in the  jails , outside public
society . HRW is ready to prove this subject to conditions , in larger
public interest. Our people's representatives must learn classroom
discipline , punctuality of attendance , home work , from little kids
of primary school.
We have won the independence by the hard way , by the innumerable
sacrifices made by great martyrs like mahatma Gandhi , Nehru , bhagath
singh , etc. The criminals who have occupied constitutional positions
don't have any right to squander that hard won independence of
Indians. The disgrace , contempt to august house of people's
representatives is brought upon itself by the corrupt people's
representatives themselves.
We at HRW , have highest regards for the institution of parliament ,
this is an appeal to the honest few in the parliament to bring to book
their corrupt colleagues & to uphold the dignity of the house .  JAI
HIND. VANDE MATARAM.

WAKE-UP ELECTION COMMISSION OF INDIA
 
 
               Former chief election commissioner , mr.T.N.sheshan
brought respect to ECI by doing his duties sincerely against all
pressures . he didn't have any special powers , whatever  laws were
there since 1950 ie our constitution of India came into being , he
used it in letter & spirit efficiently and upholded the sanctity of
elections. You can just imagine what his predecessors & successors
were & are  doing ?
              Recently , in the media we have seen reports that a 3
time member of parliament & main fund contributor of a national
political party  - Mr. M.S.SUBBA is a foreigner ,  a nepali citizen .
how can a foreigner become a law maker of India ? we have seen media
reports  of MPs & MLAs  , cabinet ministers who are wanted by police
in serious crimes but absconders , not available to arrest as per
police records . but they are very much present in the government &
running the show ? what a mockery of law ? recently , we have seen
reports where certain MPs extracted money to raise questions in
parliament , to sanction money under MPLAD scheme , we have seen media
reports about union communications minister mr.pramod mahajan
receiving reliance company shares to the tune of crores in return for
favourable ruling to that company . In various ways people's
representatives misuse their office for personal gains.
              While joining government service in India , from peon's
job to gazetted officer's rank  police inquiry / confidential
reporting about the candidate's  antecedents is mandatory. In case of
sensitive departments like space , atomic energy , defence , etc,
apart from police enquiry  concurrent investigation is conducted by
Intelligence Bureau , before appointing a candidate  to  any rank in
government service whether as peon or as officer.  Whereas , in the
case of the people's representatives who get elected as MPs , MLAs ,
MLCs , etc, no investigation is conducted about their antecedents ,
the affidavits they file before ECI at the time of nomination (
eventhough full of lies ) is taken at it's face value. The ECI doesn't
bother to sincerely cross-check those affidavits . in  2004 general
elections , our publication requested for deatails about antecedents
of 4 VVIP candidates , the ECI replied that they don't have
information  about them. In this way , ELECTION COMMISSION OF INDIA is
favouring the criminals to get elected as MPs , MLAs and eventually to
become cabinet ministers. When a criminal becomes a law maker , the
first thing he does is to cover-up his own crimes & that of his
cronies. In the second step he permits officials to indulge in
criminal deeds for a cut in the deal. He formulates laws which are
favourable to his rich cronies , based on those inherently flawed
criminal intentioned biased laws the courts of justice judges over
cases before it. Can a common man hope for justice , what a shame ?
 
              The same criminals who are in constitutional offices
become privy to very sensitive informations with respect  to national
security , economy , etc , it is the same criminals who decide over
the national policy matters relating to defence , economy , national
security , etc , don't that criminals sell our national security to
our enemies for a price ? are we truly safe under such leaders ?
  Hereby , we urge the election commission of India to give information
as per RTI ACT  with respect to following :
  1.        how many convicted persons , absconders as per police
records are there in present loksabha , rajya sabha & all state
legislatures as members of the house ?
        2.. how many convicted persons , absconders as per police
records were  there in   previous loksabhas , rajya sabhas & all state
legislatures as members of the house  since independence ?
  3.        how many foreigners , persons of foreign origin & persons
having foreigners as their spouses are there in present loksabha ,
rajyasabha & all state legislatures , as members of the house ?
  4.        how many foreigners , persons of foreign origin & persons
having foreigners as their spouses were  there in previous loksabhas ,
rajyasabhas & all state legislatures , as members of the house since
independence ?
  5.        give the  details like  the number of charges , cases
against  sitting  MPs , MLAs throught India & against ex-MPs & ex-MLAs.
  6.        are you cross-checking , verifying the affidavits filed by
candidates at the time of nomination for elections ? how ? is it
fool-proof , then how come some criminals have entered parliament &
state legislatures as members  ?
  7.        in some instances , when MPs or MLAs are found of some
wrong doings , they are just removed from  the membership of the house
, but no criminal prosecution against  such is proceeded , why ?
  bottom line : still there are are honest persons in politics , in
parliament & in state legislatures  striving for public welfare &
upholding the law. Our publication pays our whole hearted respects to
those honest few . However , criminalization of politics is an
acknowledged fact by vohra committee report , acknowledged by  cabinet
ministers themselves  & this is an appeal to the honest few MPs , MLAs
  to book their corrupt colleagues.
 
 
MEGA FRAUD BY GOVERNMENT OF INDIA – Rs 85 000 crore tax arrears waiver
+ non performing assets of banks to the tune of Rs. 200 000 crore
-       An appeal to Honourable Supreme Court of India
 
 
India has become an IT power , taken giant strides in the field of
science & technology. More & more MNCs are investing in India. However
due to our skewed , corrupt economic system , lack of accountability
on the part of corporates & public servants – a wide chasm has been
created between the ultra rich & the poor , the fruits of development
has all been usurped by the rich & mighty. This is the basic reason
for growth of black economy , growth of naxalism , terrorism &
underworld in India. As per a recent study by UN organization ,
majority of Indians ie more than 50 crore Indians are barely
sustaining on Rs.13 per day earnings , a whole family depends upon
Rs.13 , they are struggling to get just single meal per day. People
are starving to death , farmers are committing suicides , people are
selling their own children for a bag of grains. Whereas , corporate
biggies , public servants are leading luxurious lifestyles , having
big parties full of drinks , non-veg foods not at their papaa's
expense but at the expense of public exchequer , out of the tax dues ,
loan repayments cheated to the public exchequer.
The banks insist on matching collateral security even for self
employment / educational loans by poor for an amount of Rs.5000. if
the loans are not paid in time , rowdies / recovery agents are sent by
banks to collect the amount by muscle power. As a final step , banks
auction-off properties of collateral security to recover it's dues.
Even, the tax authorities mercilessly extract tax dues to the last
penny from the middle class.
The same banks, overestimate the project cost of corporates ,
overestimate the project feasibility & it's worth and coolly extend
hundreds of crores of rupees loans without matching collateral
security. The banks extend overdraft facilities without matching
collateral securities , to these corporates. When loans are not
repaid, no rowdies are sent by banks. The promoters , directors of
such tainted corporates drain – off the companies resources cunningly
through insider trading , finally making the company sick. Such
companies don't pay taxes , electricity bills , water bills , etc
properly to respective authorities. The authorities are deaf , dumb &
blind to all these actions of such corporates. At the end , banks
write-off such loans as non performing assets (NPA) & file case before
courts for recovery of dues. Even if the properties of collateral
security are auctioned-off dues cann't be fully realized. Finally
public money is swindled . ALL THIS IS POSSIBLE DUE TO THE CONNIVANCE
OF KEY BANK OFFICIALS , TAX OFFICIALS WITH CRIMINAL CORPORATES SINCE
THE INCEPTION OF SUCH COMPANIES . THIS ALSO POSES UNFAIR COMPETITION
TO HONEST CORPORATES. How to stop this ? by making corporate
accountability ,accountability of bank , tax officials more stringent
with penal provisions . afterall , they are playing with public money
not their papa's property.
Already , by the connivance of public servants , bank , tax officials
we have witnessed many scams like harshad Mehta , ketan parekh ,
hawala , etc and more than Rs. 2000000 crore NPAs are on the books of
the banks. Now, the government of India is planning to waive-off tax
arrears of corporates to the tune of Rs.85000 crore , why ? read
vijaya Karnataka kannada daily dated 04th January 2007. just look at
this in the backdrop of "QUESTIONS FOR MONEY BY SOME MPs" and "MP
LOCAL AREA DEVELOPMENT FUND ALLOCATION FOR A PRICE SCANDAL". The
government is always unresponsive , careless towards the sufferings of
poor , however it is always on toes to help out corporates that too
criminal ones but not honest corporates. Why ?
HRW has extended it's services to GOI months back itself , to
apprehend tax thieves , till date there is no reply from GOI , why ?
Hereby , HRW requests the Honourable Supreme Court of India to order GOI ,
1.         to make necessary amendments to companies act , to make the
promoters , directors of the corporates personally accountable for all
their actions.
2.         to constitute committees consisting of public persons with
powers to scrutinize & verify all the actions of corporates for
insider trading like – selling products , materials , shares to their
sister concerns at discounted prices or buying products , materials ,
shares from their sister concerns at inflated prices or lending loans
at discount rates to their sister concerns or taking loans from their
sister concerns at high rate of interest or loaning materials ,
machines to their sister concerns , etc.
3.         to constitute committees consisting of public persons , to
scrutinize & verify the annual personal tax returns filed by key bank
officials & tax officials , who have amassed riches & leading
luxurious life styles much beyond the scope of their legal known
sources of income.
4.         to recover all tax dues , loan dues , etc from the
corporates from the personal properties , wealth of promoters ,
directors of such companies.
5.         to put behind bar the key bank officials who have helped
the corporates in swindling public money by overestimating project
viability , worth and by overlooking the insider trading of promoters
and still extending loans to them.
6.         to put behind bars tax officials who have helped such
corporates in swindling public money.
7.         to take all the necessary help from public like as services
extended by HRW in apprehending tax thieves.
8.         to recover & protect public money at any cost.
9.         to confiscate all money , properties possessed by directors
of such criminal corporates & properties of corrupt bank , tax
officials , public servants.

QUESTIONS FOR MONEY – PARLIAMENTARY ACTS / LEGISLATIONS FOR ???? -
improper functioning of democracy in India
 
 
the vohra committee report has proved the criminalisation of politics
in india. There are many number of criminals in the parliament & state
legislatures. Some of those criminals are cabinet ministers as well as
members of vital parliamentary committees. Thereby, they are in a
position to manipulate , enact laws favouring , benefitting the
criminals their cronies.
Just see how the GOI gave export incentive of Rs.1800 crore to
reliance petroleum although it didn't even export a barrel. Reliance
infocom & tata teleservices were CDMA mobile service providers & have
paid license fee of few crores only equal to landline fees without any
competitive bidding . They were supposed to provide mobile service to
operate like fixed phones within a radius of 40k.m. however they were
providing service like mobile service from one state to another like
GSM mobile service providers. By this act of RIC & TTSL , the GSM
providers who have paid thousands of license fee in competitive
bidding were economically hurt , the dispute went to court. The court
was on the verge of pronouncing it's verdict awarding damages worth
Rs.18000 crore to GSM players & Rs. 3000 crore of license fees with
penalty to GOI. The government announced a unified telecom license
regime with retrospective effect. Thereby, the GOI lost thousands of
crores of rupees & the share holders of GSM players lost thousands of
crores. Onceagain the RIC was charged by PSU bsnl THAT RELIANCE IS
RE-ROUTING INTERNATIONAL CALLS AS LOCAL CALLS & SWINDLING THE GOI.
This time too, GOI bailed it out. during the dispute between ambani
brothers the younger ambani mr. Anil ambani director of reliance
himself has stated that for the favours received from the GOI , the
company gifted some shares to then IT &
COMMUNICATIONS MINISTER mr.Pramod mahajan. Various indian &
multinational companies are lootingindian exchequer to the tune of
thousands of crores of rupees , through lobbying / bribing.
 
In india, indirect democracy is the form of governance. In this form,
people's representatives are bound to raise the questions , issues
concerning their constituents on their behalf , on the floor of the
house. However the sad part in india even after 58 years of democracy
, is the lobbying is at it's peak. The lobbying is a gentleman's white
collared crook's way of forming favour seeker's group , creating a
corpus to pay lumpsum bribe & influencing decision making. The
people's representatives are bound to represent their people first ,
then their party & party think tanks. India has come to this sorry
state of affairs , widespread corruption , huge black economy &
rampant poverty, all due to inefficient legislations & enforcements.
These think tanks & IAS lobby, consider themselves as most super
brains on earth & gives out suggestions . the present state of affairs
is a barometer of their brilliance. These think tanks & IAS lobby are
the hand maidens of lobbyists / bribers.
 
Now consider the following example :
Mr.raj gandhi is a member of parliament from mandya constituency in
karnataka state. He is a MBA graduate & member of ruling indian
progressive party. The multinational giant M/S GREY HOUND CORPORATION
wants to enter into paper manufacturing business in india. It's sight
falls on the public sector paper giant mandya national paper mills (
MNPM) in mandya district of karnataka. The MNC effectively lobbies
with the government. The ruling party think tank & the cabinet
advisory group recommends to the government to make strategic
disinvestment in the PSU M/S MNPM. They bring out graph with full
power point presentation stating that it is good for the company as
well as the government. The lobbyists follows it up with media reports
on the positive aspect of strategic disinvestment. A favourable
impression is created in the minds of literate public. The cabinet
committee okays it.
 
The " strategic dis investment issue " comes before the parliament for
legislation / approval. The ruling party issues a party whip to it's
members to vote in favour of dis investment. However M.P mr.raj gandhi
who is an MBA in his own wisdom also favours the dis investment.
However ,most importantly the constituents – people in mandya
parliamentary constituency through protest marches , mass post card
campaigns lakhs in numbers expresses their disagreement with the dis
investment & urges their MP mr.gandhi to vote against the
disinvestment legislation.
 
On the D-day in parliament , mr. Raj gandhi as per his party whip &
his own wisdom votes in favour of strategic disinvestment legislation,
much against the wishes of his people , constituents & mis represents
them in parliament. the democracy has failed here. in This way
democracy is being derailed since 58 years in india. In democracy,
party whip , MP or MLA's own wisdom / brilliance, think tank & IAS
lobby recommendations are all secondary , the constituent's of his
constituency , people's wishes aspirations are of primary importance &
supreme. What people need is a honest representative, whosimply
delivers the people's aspirations on the floor of the house back &
forth , without superimposing it with his own ideas & party ideas. For
true democracy , the people's representatives must be true postmans.
 
Towards this end , the people must be educated about their democratic
rights & responsibilities. This is an appeal to the honest few in the
parliament & state legislatures to weed out their corrupt colleagues ,
lobbyists, to uphold the dignity of the house & to install democracy
in it's true form.
 
 
V.V.I.Ps in Government Of India backstabbing indian soldiers
- An appeal to supreme commander of indian armed forces H.E.PRESIDENT
OF INDIA & request for information as per RTI Act
 
 

 
Our indian armed forces is one of the best professional forces in the
world. They are guarding our borders on 365*24*7 basis , enabling we
the common indian people to live in peace. Where as , the soldiers
themselves are facing lot of hardships ,they are far removed from
their homely comforts and working in very adverse , hostile environs.
The indian soldiers are sacrificing their comforts , lives for
guarding the lives of us –crores of indians. However , now it seems
the threat to the lives of brave indian soldiers are not from the
pakistani or chinese bullets , it is from their own indian brother's.
 
In the recent past , a joint director of RAW – an intelligence agency
defected to USA , there were repeated thefts at defense HQ , war room
leak at naval HQ, the senior most naval officers were kicked out of
office for speaking out about illegal defense deals by higher-ups.
Recently, former union minister mr.jaswant singh has stated that , a
very highly placed person in the PMO was passing nuclear secrets to
USA. Just a few years back , former union minister mr. Subramaniam
swamy has stated that former prime minister rajiv gandhi's family has
received money from foreign intelligence agencies. A former KGB
officer mitrokhin , in his autobiography has stated that smt.indira
gandhi , former prime minister of india herself was a KGB agent.
 
VVIPs occupying constitutional positions are privy to defense ,
national & economic secrets. They are in a sound position to decide
over it , to manipulate it. Some VVIPs , film stars were hobnobbing
openly with terrorist leaders , underworld dons & attending dawood
ibrahim's parties , etc in gulf countries. Some VVIPs have even aided
terrorist outfits in other sovereign countries like LTTE in srilanka.
 
VVIPs strikes deals with arms dealers & awards them defense contracts.
As a result indian forces are flush with technologically obsolete
aeroplanes , war ships , artillery , etc bought by paying crores of
dollars.
 
If any defense personnel questions these actions , he is
court-martialled & put behind bars. If any ordinary citizens questions
them , he is silenced through the brute force of police. Even election
commission of india , didn't give information about criminal
antecedents of certain VVIP candidates tom an indian citizen on
request. The courts have suo motto powers to take action on news
reports , but they have not taken any even on appeal. The police don't
take action against such VVIPs & are not even registering complaints
against them. Most public servants are only bothered about their
position , favours , post-retirement postings , etc. In their scope of
things , national security is nowhere on their mind or actions.
 
On the public side , the same VVIPs condemn terrorism & other foreign
countries. They deploy indian soldiers on the borders , terrorist
infected areas , to contain the mafia . they send our soldiers with
3rd class arms & ammunition , riding 3rd class aeroplanes , ships &
artillery to contain violence , as a result our soldiers get killed
like flees , like sitting ducks to be shot at, by enemies who are
armed with latest weapons. As a result more number of soldiers are
dying in plane crashes , terrorist bullets than to pakistani or
chinese bullets.
 
Hereby , HRW appeals to your excellency to protect our brave soldiers
, by making public the following information & providing that
information to HRW as per RTI Act on the following questions :
 
1. how GOI is monitoring VVIPs of foreign origin , those with spouses
of foreign origin & those with ties , links to foreign nationals ?
2. how GOI is monitoring the activities of VVIPs , while on foreign tour ?
3. how GOI is monitoring activities of ex-VVIPs ?
4. how transparent are defense contract / tender procedures ?
5. how you protect whistle blowers / defense personnel who expose
illegal defense deals ?
6. why don't the Election Commission of India fully make public the
criminal antecedents of VVIP candidates ?
7. is former union minister mr.jaswanth singh's words true ? what
action ?
8. is former union minister mr.subramaniam swamy's words true ? what
action ?
9. did GOI aid & sponsor LTTE terrorists in srilanka ?
10. did GOI pay any compensation to victim's of LTTE's terrorism ?
11. are the charges made by former admiral mr.bhagawath & rear-admiral
mr. Arun true ? what action ?
12. how many MPs , MLAs , VVIPs have links with underworld , mafia &
terrorist outfits ?
13. how many film stars , sportsmen , politicians have attended the
parties hosted by dawood ibrahim & others in gulf & else where ? what
action ?
14. are the statements made by former KGB officer mr.mitrokhin true ?
what action ?
15. how you are ensuring the safety of whistleblowers ?
 
god save my country , our brave soldiers from traitors in the garb of
VVIPs.

 
FINANCE SCAMS IN INDIA & 5-STAR LEADERS WITH BEGGING BOWL

In " mysooru mithra" a kannada daily dated 15/06/2005, the
editor has written about a copy of the complaint made by Transparency
International India-Bangalore to central vigilance commission of
india.
In indian banks , there is a strange practice that whenever
a cheque is put before the clearing house by a bank, the clearing
house sends that cheque to the service branch of bank paying. The
service branch then sends that cheque to the appropriate bank branch
for deduction of cash from the cheque account. In this travel , if
the cheque is lost or misplaced midway, the service branch pays out
of it's suspense account to the cash collecting bank. Logically,
afterwards the service branch must initiate a thorough inquiry, get
authentication from both persons one who gave cheque & other who
collected cheque. Finally, the money must be transferred from the
account of cheque giver to the suspense account.
However , upto 1997 two branches of state bank of india in
bangalore & overseas branch sufferred from frequent loss of cheques
totally amounting to RUPEES THREE THOUSAND TWO HUNDRED CRORE. In all
cases of cheque loss the bank has paid out of suspense account,
totally amounting to Rs.3200 crore. However the bank has not
initiated any enquiry to recover that amount from the cheque givers.
In the 1997 internal audit report of the bank itself , this has been
clearly pointed out. Till date, even the central vigilance commission
has not initiated any action about it. A member of central vigilance
commission happens to be ex-chairman of state bank of india.
It is just an instance of two branches of SBI, what about
hundreds of branches of SBI, what about thousands of branches of
other public sector,private sector & co-operative banks. It is
fraud,fraud,fraud all the way. Few months back to cover-up the crimes
of global trust bank ( GTB) , it was taken over by oriental bank of
commerce ( OBC).
While sanctioning a loan of just Rs.10000 to a common
man , he has to comply with lengthy legalities. If he defaults,
bankers breath down his neck, bankers send rowdies in the form of
recovery agents to humiliate the common man & his properties are
auctioned-off, finally all dues to the last penny are recovered. In
most of the cases bankers even force the defaulters to committ
suicide. However influential persons easily gets loans amounting to
hundreds of crores of rupees, coolly defaults, siphons-off the funds
& shuts his shop. No recovery at all , just it becomes a non-
performing asset (NPA) in the bank ledger. The total NPAs of all
public sector banks is more than Rs.80000 crore. This burden is spead
over the crores of hapless indians.
The government takes pride in murdering forest brigand
veerappan. The ill-gotten wealth of veerappan is not even pea nuts
before this huge amount. Remember past finance scams – MS SHOES,
HAWALA, HARSHAD MEHTA SHARE SCAM, KETAN PAREKH SHARE SCAM, UTI, etc.
totally in all these scams billions of dollars of public money have
gone to the coffers of criminals. These scamsters put veerappan to
shame in their turnover. However the government is not even
exhibiting a fraction of it's ELIMINATE VEERAPPAN DRIVE against these
scamsters, why?
In india, both central & state government tax/ revenue
officials are neck deep in corruption. By, taking bribe they make
lower assessment of income, gains, etc & spare businessmen from the
tax payment. The government in return for favours received from
lobbies, gives tax exemptions to them at it's sweet will.
All these scams & it's cover-ups are insider jobs. The
government is not interested to collect, recover it's own monies
amounting to billions of billions of dollars every year. However our
5-star leaders living at the expense of tax-payers, go-on foreign
jaunts with a begging bowl for a few lakhs of dollars. What a shame?
More than 50 billion indians are barely surviving on a
single meal per day & hundreds are dying due to starvation, billions
don't even have basic necessities of life. If the government even
just collects a fraction of it's dues from scamsters, defaulting
industrialists – people won't die of hunger in india. Has this
enlightened our thick skinned netas ?
Jai hind. Vande mataram.

Your's sincerely,

Nagaraj.m.r.

AN APPEAL TO Mr.P.CHIDAMBARAM UNION FINANCE MINISTER GOVERNMENT OF
INDIA

An age old saying – AS THE KING SO DOES THE SUBJECTS.
In india various financial scams, crimes & it's cover-ups have taken
place amounting to billions of billions of dollars have taken place,
made possible , just due to the involvement of the king – the netas &
government officials themselves in the shameful act – the crime.
The tax officials are utterly corrupt, the wards of
these officials spend double their pappa's salary just during
weekends. Now, realise their financial might. These ill-gotten wealth
is destabilising our economy & might have even found it's way into
the hands of underworld, terorrists. INDIA WILL BE DEFEATED FROM
CRIMINAL FORCES WITHIN LIKE THIS NOT FROM THE EXTERNAL FORCES.
Hereby, the HRW urges you to make public:
1. the financial worth of finance minister to tax official at
circle level, on annual basis including his spouse's worth & property
details.
2. to make public the NPAs, losses & monies under litigation by
both private & public sector banks annually.
3. to make public measures taken to recover these monies.
4. to publish annual accounts with complete details of
discretionary funds allotted to the defence ministry, president,
prime minister, chief ministers , governors & intelligence agencies.
Public want to know whether proper discretion is being applied while
spending.

DID THE LAW BREAK THE LAW - ASKS KRISHNA IYER

KOCHI: Justice V R Krishna Iyer demanded a second look into the Coco
Cola judgment made by the High Court on Wednesday. Alleging that the
modified decision smacks of bench shopping by powerful litigant,
Justice Iyer said the circumstances of the case when fully disclosed
may suggest a `riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma'.

The strongly worded statement of Justice Iyer is as follows:

I have great respect for the judiciary of which I have been a member,
both in Kerala and in the apex court.

But criticism of judiciary pronouncements when one considers them as
aberrational is a failure of a jurist's duty to the Constitution and
the non-exercise of the fundamental right of freedom of _expression.
We are governed by the Constitution but it has been said that the
Constitution is what the judges say it is.

This does not mean that the `robed brethren' can go haywire reduce
the law to mere judicial ipse dixits. I suspect the wisdom and
constitutionality of the Coco Cola judgment pronounced by the
Division Bench of the Kerala High Court.

May be I am wrong or may be the concerned judges are in error. When
license has been refused for the Coco Cola by the local authority
which is necessary under the Municipal Law the court cannot hold
that, in certain circumstances, the license may be deemed to have
been granted, thus nullifying the statute.

The procedure of invoking the jurisdiction of that court for getting
an earlier decision modified smacks of `bench shopping' by a powerful
litigant.

The circumstances of the case when fully disclosed, may suggest a
`riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma'.

Coco Cola jurisprudence as laid down by the Court does require a
second look although I must say that our judges in the High Court
generally command my respect. I have not had the time to investigate
dialectically the many dimension of this pronouncement.

I must also confess that I have not fully investigated how, in the
face of earlier decision, a fresh case was instituted before a
different bench. This calls for a closer study of the procedure
adopted and the substantive law declared when I consider curious and
dubious.

In short, `Coco Cola' as a law had made an imbroglio of our writ
jurisdiction and jurisprudence. Already, Prof Mohammed Ghouse long
ago, in a thoughtful article, felt that the highest court has at
times becomes a conscience-keeper of vested interests.

I am sure that in India today, the one high institution which holds
aloft people's confidence is the judiciary. `Ye, are the salt of the
earth; but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be
salted'. (Bible).
 

CORPORATE CRIMES & CORRUPT PUBLIC SERVANTS – Root cause of naxalism , terrorism in India

The corrupt public servants together with corporate criminals are looting the state exchequer , looting the resources which rightfully belongs to all the people , public. Thereby, making those public utterly poor. This has created a wide chasm between few utterly rich people & crores of utterly poor. This has generated lot of socio-economic problems in India. The ill-gotten money , black money thus generated is funding the organized crime. As a result , Some of these poor people are finding the solution to their poverty in the wrong way of naxalism , terrorism , religious fundamentalism , caste movements , etc. It is futile.

The government is trying to tackle the problem of naxalism , terrorism by violence , instant justice like fake encounters , 3rd degree tortures , lock-up deaths , etc. why not government meating out instant justice to corporate criminals & corrupt public servants ?

Both government & public must respect law & democratic norms . The government must aim at the root cause of these problems , like providing realistic displacement packages to project displaced persons , ensuring proper supply of ration through PDS in ration shops , ensuring proper implementation of food for work programmes , ensuring proper free medical care & free supply of medicines to poor in government hospitals , to strictly eradicate corruption in public service & to strictly enforce corporate accountability in India. However , the government is not sincere in it’s objectives or intentions.

Our publication HRW has appealed to the authorities numerous times seeking justice about following corporate crimes , still there is no word called justice , why this delay by authorities. I am reproducing some web pages of few cases of corporate crimes for justice. JAI HIND. VANDE MATARAM.

RPG CABLES LTD thy name FRAUD ? BEWARE BANKERS& SMALL INVESTORS

M/S RPG CABLES LTD , an industry located at mysore is promoted by the most influential congress M.P mr. R.P.Goenka. the senior executives of the company are looting the resources of the company in turn bringing bad name to the company &causing immense losses to all stakeholders.


Without due permission of the customers & in violation of customer contracts, these executives are effecting deviations in the process like using recycled products, processing at higher speeds & using the approved materials at the ends of the cable ie testing lengths only , in between the cable length non-conforming raw materials are used. Thereby, these executives are cheating the customers like BSNL, PGCIL, GAIL, MTNL, etc since years. Many cables are failing at fields , if thorough inspection is done many more will cometo light. The company is made to pay huge penalties , even suffered blacklisting all due to the greedy actions of senior executives. There is no proper tendering procedure while purchasing raw materials or disposal of machineries . The money is siphoned-off to sister companies by offering low interest loans,selling the shares at undervalue or by purchasing shares at inflated price , etc. There is no proper documentation or tax payments for the flow of goods between M/S RPG CABLES LTD, MYSORE & M/S CONCEPTA CABLES LTD, MYSORE. There is no word called TRANSPARENCY OR CORPORATE GOVERNANCE in their books.


These type of ill-gotten wealth of various industrialists & traders in india is fuelling the black economy, destabilising the economy, cheating the government of it’s tax dues, cheating the lending banks, funding the political parties,underworld & terrorist outfits. The senior executives of the company are leading the luxurious lifestyles much above their known sources of income. When mr. R.P.Goenka has failed to properly govern a small company, how can he govern our vast country India being a member of parliament ?

The shameful part is that inspite of so much of cheating by the said company ie by it’s executives , now the government through BIFR has given loans again to this company. Definitely this money to the tune of crores will disappear in the black hole too . God save my country.

RPG CABLES LTD & SUDARSHAN TELECOM MYSORE
-Are they adhering to environmental norms ?

These two private companies situated at mysore, karnataka state are in the business of manufacturing polythene insulated jelly filled cables & optic fibre cables for Tele- communication purposes. These two companies are burning off polythene wastes in the open releasing various toxins to the atmosphere . also , they are not properly disposing off non bio-degradable wastes like optic fibre & fibre reinforcement materials ,which poses a grave threat to the public at large. In addition they are not taking proper occupational safety measures in handling these materials posing a grave threat to the lives of employees. Karnataka pollution control board & labour department are you hearing ?

wake-up labour commissioner & chief inspector of factories,government of karnataka.
– illegal, unfair labour practices by M/S RPG CABLES LTD MYSORE , M/S VARSHACABLES LTD MYSORE , M/S FINECORE CABLES LTD , MYSORE.

In M/S RPG Cables Ltd , the workers are forced to work in hazardous atmosphere without proper safety gears , safety shoes & forced to lift/push heavier loads . They are forced to work throughout the night shift even without mandatory½ hour break. labour laws are flouted rampantly , some of the workers are suffering from health problems due to exposure to the fumes of hazardous chemicals like M.E.K , polythene compounds , petroleum jelly , optic fibre materials. The management has illegally retrenched number of workmen from the service &has appointed number of casual labourers in their place . to by-pass the law they have even outsourced some works.


In M/S VARSHA CABLES & M/S FINECORE CABLES and it’s sister concerns ,workers are subjected to work in hazardous conditions. First of all , the machine layout , the space for material movement, & storage space is so congested that the accidents are definite to happen. There are allegations that some of the workers are not even paid nominal wages & are not even covered by E.S.I , P.F. the workers are not even provided with appropriate safety gears . To escape from legal prosecution the names of workers are not maintained in muster rolls instead it is just entered in a note book. Provisions of drinking water , urinals , first aid , etc are poor. The workers are forced to inhale the fumes of polythene compounds ,petroleum jelly , etc and forced to lift/push heavier loads . even women workers are made to work for long hours. Are the factory inspectorate & labour department sleeping ?

RPG CABLES LIMITED MYSORE FIT TO BE BLACK LISTED BY THE GOVERNMENT FOR UNFAIR TRADE & LABOUR PRACTICES.

This is a company promoted by longtime supporter & congress M.P (member of parliament ), mr. R.P . GOENKA. the company was blacklisted by the supreme court of india in 1996.the company was subjected to inspection by department of telecommunications& tax authorities ,for various violations of contract ,tax laws , etc ,time & again ,however each time it was MANAGED WELL.

Due to various wrong decisions of the management like purchase of wrong raw materials(not up to customer requirements),changing process parameters and using reworked/recycled materials, all in violation of CONTRACTS WITH THE CUSTOMERS(like BSNL , MTNL , PGCIL , GAIL ) . thereby the customers were supplied with inferior quality products than those mentioned in the contract . as a result the company was forced to frequently pay-up penalties to the customers & to provide replacements to the customers ,all to the tune of crores of rupees .after opening up of CONCEPTA CABLES LTD in mysore beside the RPG CABLES LTD in mysore the materials used to be moved from one company to another without any documents or excise documents. the company has totally disregarded the safety & environmental norms. HOWEVER WHENEVERGOVERNMENT OFFICIALS CAME FOR INSPECTION THEY MANAGED IT SO WELL WITH THE AID OF FAKE DOCUMENTS.

The management frequently made large purchases from the market without calling for public bidding / tender. the management frequently gave loans/money advances to the sister concerns at low lending rates than the prevailing market rates. finally as a result the public –the Share holders , government , lending banks are cheated by the management.

MEGA FRAUD BY GOVERNMENT OF INDIA Rs 85 000 crore tax arrears waiver + non performing assets of banks to the tune of Rs. 200 000 crore

An appeal to Honourable Supreme Court of India

India has become an IT power , taken giant strides in the field of science & technology. More & more MNCs are investing in India. However due to our skewed , corrupt economic system , lack of accountability on the part of corporates & public servants a wide chasm has been created between the ultra rich & the poor , the fruits of development has all been usurped by the rich & mighty. This is the basic reason for growth of black economy , growth of naxalism , terrorism & underworld in India. As per a recent study by UN organization , majority of Indians ie more than 50 crore Indians are barely sustaining on Rs.13 per day earnings , a whole family depends upon Rs.13 , they are struggling to get just single meal per day. People are starving to death , farmers are committing suicides , people are selling their own children for a bag of grains. Whereas , corporate biggies , public servants are leading luxurious lifestyles , having big parties full of drinks , non-veg foods not at their papaa’s expense but at the expense of public exchequer , out of the tax dues , loan repayments cheated to the public exchequer.

The banks insist on matching collateral security even for self employment / educational loans by poor for an amount of Rs.5000. if the loans are not paid in time , rowdies / recovery agents are sent by banks to collect the amount by muscle power. As a final step , banks auction-off properties of collateral security to recover it’s dues. Even, the tax authorities mercilessly extract tax dues to the last penny from the middle class.

The same banks, overestimate the project cost of corporates , overestimate the project feasibility & it’s worth and coolly extend hundreds of crores of rupees loans without matching collateral security. The banks extend overdraft facilities without matching collateral securities , to these corporates. When loans are not repaid, no rowdies are sent by banks. The promoters , directors of such tainted corporates drain off the companies resources cunningly through insider trading , finally making the company sick. Such companies don’t pay taxes , electricity bills , water bills , etc properly to respective authorities. The authorities are deaf , dumb & blind to all these actions of such corporates. At the end , banks write-off such loans as non performing assets (NPA) & file case before courts for recovery of dues. Even if the properties of collateral security are auctioned-off dues cann’t be fully realized. Finally public money is swindled . ALL THIS IS POSSIBLE DUE TO THE CONNIVANCE OF KEY BANK OFFICIALS , TAX OFFICIALS WITH CRIMINAL CORPORATES SINCE THE INCEPTION OF SUCH COMPANIES . THIS ALSO POSES UNFAIR COMPETITION TO HONEST CORPORATES. How to stop this ? by making corporate accountability ,accountability of bank , tax officials more stringent with penal provisions . afterall , they are playing with public money not their papa’s property.

Already , by the connivance of public servants , bank , tax officials we have witnessed many scams like harshad Mehta , ketan parekh , hawala , etc and more than Rs. 2000000 crore NPAs are on the books of the banks. Now, the government of India is planning to waive-off tax arrears of corporates to the tune of Rs.85000 crore , why ? read vijaya Karnataka kannada daily dated 04th January 2007. just look at this in the backdrop of “QUESTIONS FOR MONEY BY SOME MPs” and “MP LOCAL AREA DEVELOPMENT FUND ALLOCATION FOR A PRICE SCANDAL”. The government is always unresponsive , careless towards the sufferings of poor , however it is always on toes to help out corporates that too criminal ones but not honest corporates. Why ?

HRW has extended it’s services to GOI months back itself , to apprehend tax thieves , till date there is no reply from GOI , why ?

Hereby , HRW requests the Honourable Supreme Court of India to order GOI ,

  1. to make necessary amendments to companies act , to make the promoters , directors of the corporates personally accountable for all their actions.
  2. to constitute committees consisting of public persons with powers to scrutinize & verify all the actions of corporates for insider trading like selling products , materials , shares to their sister concerns at discounted prices or buying products , materials , shares from their sister concerns at inflated prices or lending loans at discount rates to their sister concerns or taking loans from their sister concerns at high rate of interest or loaning materials , machines to their sister concerns , etc.
  3. to constitute committees consisting of public persons , to scrutinize & verify the annual personal tax returns filed by key bank officials & tax officials , who have amassed riches & leading luxurious life styles much beyond the scope of their legal known sources of income.
  4. to recover all tax dues , loan dues , etc from the corporates from the personal properties , wealth of promoters , directors of such companies.
  5. to put behind bar the key bank officials who have helped the corporates in swindling public money by overestimating project viability , worth and by overlooking the insider trading of promoters and still extending loans to them.
  6. to put behind bars tax officials who have helped such corporates in swindling public money.
  7. to take all the necessary help from public like as services extended by HRW in apprehending tax thieves.
  8. to recover & protect public money at any cost.
  9. to confiscate all money , properties possessed by directors of such criminal corporates & properties of corrupt bank , tax officials , public servants.

ARE YOU SINCERELY READY TO CATCH TAX THEIVES ?

– AN APPEL TO UNION FINANCE MINISTER & KARNATAKA STATE FINANCE MINISTER

In india , tax compliance is worse. In our criminal justice system, there is rigorous imprisonment for a pick-pocketer stealing Rs.10. even the authorities spend thousands of rupees in legally prosecuting him & the thief spends a year or more as punishment behind bars. Where as there is no commensurate investigation nor legal prosecution nor punishment for corporate thieves , evading tax to the tune of crores of rupees. In contrast, those tax thieves pay a part of that booty to the ministers & political parties and get crores of rupees tax exemptions , incentives from the government. Government is rewarding corporate criminals.

The tax officials of central & state governments are hand in glove with these corporate criminals & traders. For a price, they are helping corporates & traders in evading tax. Most of the tax officials are wealthy & leading luxurious lifestyles , much beyond the scope of their legal income. The black money thus generated every year by tax evasion , is many times more than our total annual budget allocation. As a result, all our fiscal reforms fail & inflation is soaring. This black money is the source of illegal funding of political parties , terrorist outfits & underworld. It is a greater threat to national unity & integrity.

Both the central government & karnataka state government have failed to collect the full , actual tax dues from corporates & traders. As a result , the governments don’t have enough money in their coffers even to provide basic needs like health care , education , safe drinking water , etc to the poor & needy. For every Rs.100 tax evaded , one poor patient is dying without medical care , 10 poor persons lack education , 100 persons don’t get safe drinking water , 100 persons barely survive on a single piece meal per day , 20 persons starve. Most of The government officials , ministers & people’s representatives who have deliberately failed in their duties of tax collection & welfare of poor citizens , SHAMELESSLY indulge in luxurious lifestyle at the expense of poor tax payer . they live in paltial bungalows , chauffer driven AC cars , all living food expenses paid by exchequer , dine at 5-star hotels , only drink bottled mineral water , eat non-vegetarian dishes , drink alcohol sitting before mahatma gandhi’s photograph & preaching mahatma’s ideals. Mahatma preached & practiced simple living , vegetarianism & he was teto teller , he paid for his expenses from his earnings . these public servants are parasites , who are making merry at the expense of tax payer.

Some non government organisations ( NGO) have formed trusts and under the aegis of those trusts are running educational institutions , hospitals , community halls , etc , in the name of providing free / subsidised services like education , health care , etc to the poor. It is only in record books , they conduct fake medical camps , self employment training camps . in practice they are running these educational institutions , hospitals & community halls as commercial enterprises & collecting huge fees. they are not even remitting full fees collected to the trust account & swindling the money. no outsider is allowed to become a member of these NGOs , only their cronies & their family members are in these trusts.

Numerous NGOs promoted by religious bodies , mutts are swindling public & government money to the tune of crores of rupees. Nobody dares to question the heads , pontiffs of these mutts , as at his feet VVIPs , ministers fall down. These religious bodies are hot beds of fundamentalism , terrorism & mafia. Hwere is the accountability of religious bodies & political parties in in india ?

Inspite of bringing specific cases to the notice of authorities , they are mum ? hereby , HUMAN RIGHTS WATCH offers it’s services ( subject to conditions ) to the governments of india & karnataka , in apprehending the criminals tax evaders. Are you ready mr.Chidambaram sir & mr.Yediyurappa sir ? If you are ready to do your duty look into the following cases , take appropriate action & kindly inform me about the outcome.

SCANDALS OF MOBILE PHONES & IT’S CURRENCY SALES IN INDIA

IMEI No is the unique identification of each mobile phones. It has helped police in tracking criminals , terrorists , kidnappers , etc. however nokia India & tata indicom cos are selling mobile handsets without IMEI Nos, which is a good news for criminals , bad news for the public & the government. The authorities can refer the case details of case no: CD 49/05 before the honourable consumer disputes redressal forum , mysore. Also, without mention of IMEI No in the sales bill , phones cann’t be tracked. The mobile currencies are sold without bills. A part of that currency is tax payable to the government. Mobile cos are getting that tax money from customers but are not remitting the same to the government. As the currency sales are without bill government cann’t track it’s actual tax dues. This is a huge scandal 100 times bigger than bofors to the tune of hundreds of
crores. A part of this black money is funding criminals , underworld & terrorist outfits.What TRAI is doing , sleeping ?

REQUEST TO TRAI for following information


1. what are the total number of subscribers of each mobile phone service provider both CDMA & GSM yearwise since 1998 till date ?


2. what are the total number of handsets sold since 1998 till date yearwise ? give split figures for CDMA & GSM handsets
?


3. What is the total value of currencies sold by each mobile phone service provider yearwise since 1998 till date ? give split figures for each company?

REQUEST FOR INFORMATION AS PER PROVISIONS OF RTI ACT

– An appeal to tax authorities ABOUT MOBILE PHONE SCANDALS

Case no.1 : in the year 2004 , dealer for tata indicom mobile phone service M/S INTOTO COMMUNICATIONS , kalidasa road , vv mohalla , mysore sold a nokia 2280 mobile hand set to a customer for Rs.4000 along with mobile phone connection ( bill no.41 dt 25/09/2004 ). On the box of the mobile hand set , MRP is mentioned as Rs.5799 , so either the dealer is selling the handset at discount or there is over invoicing the cost of product during import. However there is no mention of discount in the sales bill. There was no mention of 15 digit IMEI number nor there was warranty card . all these proved that , the dealer is dealing in illegal handsets either smuggled , stolen or seconds and selling them to customers as brand new genuine ones.

The matter went before the honourable consumer disputes redressal forum , mysore and the honourable forum acknowledged the illegality of the handset & ordered the dealer to refund the money with costs to the customer. The dealer has complied with the order ie accepted his wrongdoing. ( Case no : CD 49/2005 ). The issue was brought up before the CBDT , CBEC & CCT , till date no action why ?

Case no.2 : on 18/06/2006 , M/S Rajhans Novelties , surya bakery circle , hebbal , mysore dealer for reliance mobile phones has sold a mobile connection together with handset for Rs.2060 . on the outer box of the handset cost is mentioned as MRP Rs.4000 , however he has sold it for Rs.1265 . also, the dealer has not stated the cost of lifetime voucher ie Rs.795 in the sales bill ( bill no : 1017 dt 18/06/2006 ) , there is no mention of discount in the sales bill . it is a clear case of either over invoicing of the product during import or sale of illegal handsets. The reliance infocom is not even responding to my queries & requests for written confirmation of 10 year validity. Why ? there is something amiss here .

Hereby , i do seek following information under the provisions of RTI ACT from ,the chairman of central board of excise & customs , chairman of central board of direct taxes , government of india & the commissioner , commercial taxes , government of karnataka :

1. is the handset sold through bill no:41 dt 25/09/2004 by m/s INTOTO communications , kalidasa road , vv mohalla mysore genuine one ? how much excise , customs duty & commercial taxes has been paid towards it’s import & sales ?

2. is the handset sold through bill no:1017 dt 18/06/2006 , by m/s Rajhans novelties , surya bakery circle , hebbal mysore , genuine one ? how much excise , customs duty & commercial taxes has been paid towards it’s import & sales ? specific figures needed.

3. Why the amount of life time voucher is not shown in sales bill ? why neither the company reliance infocom or it’s dealer is not giving written confirmation of 10 year incoming phone service validity inspite of collecting Rs. 795 ?

4. every business transaction needs a bill. Then why don’t the sellers of mobile phone currencies , life time cards , activation cards are not giving bills ?

5. also in these currencies , a part of currency ie money is deducted as tax by the mobile companies. Are they passing on those deducted tax amounts to the government ? when there is no track back on the sales of mobile currencies , how the government collects it’s rightful tax dues ?

6. how you are monitoring the growing riches of tax officials year after year ?

there is a huge scandal under the belly of mobile phone market , but the tax officials are mum . why ? HRW offers it’s services in apprehending tax thieves , are you ready ?

RELIANCE INDUSTRIES LIMITED – WHERE IS ACCOUNTABILITY?

Dear mukesh & anil ambani,

The reliance industries has always got a favourable treatment from the state & central governments.there are allegations that ,

1.years ago, the central government gave import concessions for import of certain raw materials of textile sector ,which hugely benefitted the P.F.Y & TEXTILE projects of your’s ie reliance industries.

2.the O.N.G.C which has painstakingly surveyed the oil & gas reserves & prepared a list of lists,gave that list & you got godavari basin oil & gas project from the government .O.N.G.C could have developed it & earned millions.

3.few months back you were charged both by the government & cellular operators (GSM) that you are giving S.T.D & ROAMING FACILITIES to your reliance phone subscribers.your’s was only a W.L.L. they even claimed that you are misusing a legal loophole & causing crores of losses to the government & other GSM operators. however while the issue was before the T.R.A.I, the trai legalized your actions by announcing unified licence for telecom operators.

4.now you are charged by the government of re-routing ISD CALLS as local calls,thereby causing crores of losses to the government & BSNL.this time also you may get the reprieve from the government. the government ,if a commonman does not pay his electric bills in time slaps interest & cuts down the electric supply immediately.

however the same government ,even if your company has been alleged of causing crores of rupees losses to the government & other players, always enacts favourable laws for you like a SANTA CLAUS.

WILL YOU PLEASE CLARIFY mr.mukesh ambani & mr.anil ambani?

the TRAI announced unified licence regime in haste that too with retrospective effects.so all the charges against reliance were dropped. in the same vein as unified licence got retrospective effect , why not the government re-imburse the differece amount out of hefty fees collected from other cellular operators ? take the reliance fees as bench mark.anyway , finally commonman is the looser.

Crimes at INFOSYS campus ?

wake-up government of Karnataka –  an open letter to mr.Narayan murthy

INFOSYS is an indian corporate which made india proud globally & made all it’s
employees prosper, become shareholders in the prosperity of the company. Infosys
has made & is making various humanitarian services/aid through it’s hard earned
resources. thereby bringing smile to the faces of numerous oppressed ,disadvantaged people. every indian is proud of responsible organisations like infosys & we do sincerely appreciate the company.

Recently , disrespect was shown to our sacred Indian National Anthem at your campus , aping Americans is not a big thing . Americans are what they are because they love their country. Every human being must love & respect  his motherland & mother first , everything matters later. This crime at your campus is inexcusable.

There are also allegations that at your campus , usage of illegal drugs  by inmates is rampant &  some inmates behave indecently with girls . how you are ensuring the safety of women at your campus ?

Recently , it has been reported that there are recurring  deaths of labourers at your construction site  due to lack of proper occupational safety measures . also, it has been reported many of the labourers are not even  covered by ESI & PF . from the day one how many persons have died & how many were injured , physically disabled till date ? what follow-up action has been taken by your organization ?  is it not the duty  of your organization to respect the law of the land with respect to labourer’s safety ?


However there are complaints of human rights violations in your own backyard. Infosys is building a vast campus in mysore since 2 years. The construction work has been given to contractors, who in turn has given out subcontracts . some of these sub-contractors are employing persons without E.S.I & P.F COVERAGE .these employees are forced to work at heights without any safety gears. some of these employees have suffered damages to their
limbs , hands ,fingers while performing their duties . in such events, the sub-contractor takes the injured to a private hospital, arranges for medical treatment for a day or two . afterwards , he is given a pittance as compensation ,dismissed from service & left to fend for himself . no further medical care at all. these sub-contractors are so cunning that they
don’t even leave a single shred of evidence to prove that the injured employee was working
on that site . the labourers attendance is just marked on a notebook , not any official register .as a result the injured is unable to legally prosecute the guilty . the end result fingers or hands or limbs lost to INFOSYS. Being the principal employer, is it not your duty to ensure proper E.S.I & P.F coverage of all contract labourers by their respective
contractors. Your organissation is not even responding to our queries , is it justified ?

CRIMES BY BANGALORE DEVELOPMENT AUTHORITY ( B.D.A)

AGAINST A POOR WOWAN

The B.D.A flouts it’s own rules & spreads red carpet for big land developers & land grabbers. B.D.A posting is a huge money spinner for corrupt officials. The corrupt B.D.A officials work hand in glove with criminal elements & rowdies. They illegally evict genuine allottees who are poor & without any connections from allotted prime lands & sell-off those prime land to the highest bidder of bribe. The poor fellow is re-alloted lands in backward areas & in some cases left in the lurch.

Now , take the following case. Mr. S.D. chandrashekaraiah a poor old man aged around 80 years was allotted with house no.185, kumaraswamy lay-out, first block, bangalore in 1978 vide letter no.

310/267/BDA/ADM/KMRSL(H)/78-79 dt 11/08/1978.

The chairman of B.D.A has allotted the built house on lease cum sale basis. The poor old man mr. S.D.chandrashekaraiah complied with all the rules & in accordance with it even deposited 25% of the house cost in B.D.A’S account. However when he went over to his allotted house for residing in it, he found out some rowdy elements were already residing there. He complained about this matter to the legal owner of the house ie B.D.A . the B.D.A officials didn’t take steps to evict the illegal encroachers nor did they make any complaint to the police. His appeals to B.D.A, chief minister of karnataka , etc fell on deaf ears. Hurt by this gross injustice & mounting financial burdens the poor old man died.

Subsequently, the poor man’s daughter smt. Nagalakshmi who was also very poor , appealed to the B.D.A authorities once again , to evict illegal encroachers from her father’s allotted house. This time the corrupt B.D.A officials played a different game. They showed her a vacant house, gave her oral instructions to live in that vacant house & told her that they will regularise it in due course. The hapless poor woman took huge loans & repaired the house fit for occupation.  Just before she was to occupy that house , corrupt B.D.A officials once again planted rowdy elements in that house. Once again the poor woman was cheated. She lost her house, on top of it her loan burden mounted.

Till date, that poor woman is suffering from these gross injustices of B.D.A . SHAMELESS B.D.A OFFICIALS who take thousands of rupees salary & perks every month, all at the expense of tax-payer has not even cared to rectify the injustice. Thereby, they are violating the poor woman’s fundamental & human rights.

Hereby, HUMAN RIGHTS WATCH urges the honourable chief minister of karnataka, honourable lokayuktha for karnataka , honourable chairman national human rights commission , honourable chairman national commission for women & honourable chairman state commission for women karnataka, to take the appropriate action & to speedily provide justice to this poor woman.

THEFTS IN RBI CURRENCY NOTE PRESS

R.B.I CURRENCY THEFT CASE – COVER-UP ACT BY C.B.I?
– AN APPEAL TO THE UNION FINANCE MINISTER & CENTRAL VIGILANCE
COMMISSION

Even in ordinary branches of banks , the safety locker room keys & currency chest room keys are with senior managers only. with advance of technology various electronic gadgets like burglar alarms, user id & palm readers are in use. It is quite shocking to know that , in high security RBI CURRENCY PRESS , mysore these gadgets were not in use & the keys were easily accessible to ordinary security guards. Also, in mysore press there is no proper accounting practices for blank papers issued for printing , after
printing is done accounts of accepted notes & rejected notes is not at all kept. CBI is putting the whole blame on an ordinary security guards & hurrying to close the case. The repeated thefts are not at all possible by security guards alone without the help of insiders / higher executives. CBI is trying to fool whom?

Even with respect to my complaint regarding recruitment scandal complaint no: DPG/B/2005/80049 (2) (RBI) new complaint no: DPG/Z/2005/90040, neither CBI nor secretary ( finance sector ) department of economic affairs government of india nor the RBI governor has taken any steps till date , why?
Hereby, HRW urges the honourable union finance minister & CENTRAL VIGILANCE COMMISSION to look into the matter & to provide speedy justice to all concerned.

C.B.I COVERING UP THEFTS IN R.B.I
Lie detector tests for C.B.I officers ?

Nowadays even free e-mail accounts need password to operate, to operate a bank locker there are multi level security settings. However , it is ridiculous, unbelievable to note that in the high security reserve bank of india currency note press mysore, there were no different key sets , palm readers, pass words, no different authorised persons, no troops of security guards, to access the area.


Just only one security guard- a constable. It is a cock & bull story of C.B.I, that all alone a single security guard stole the booty. There must be a crime syndicate. The C.B.I officers themselves must be subjected to polygraph, brain mapping tests to know why they are lying , to cover-up whom? The C.B.I has not answered previous questions raised by HRW. The C.B.I must answer the following questions :


1. who were responsible for selling the good printing machine at security press nasik to scamster karim lala telgi as scrap ?


2. who recruited the candidates below merit rankings in R.B.I for what criminal roles ?


3. how many irregularities have taken place in R.B.I till date ?


4. who is responsible for installing, operating & supervising the security set-up in R.B.I ?


5. how the raw materials ie number of paper sheets, ink, etc are accounted for in inward stores & while issuing for printing ?


6. how wastages, scrap of ink , papers , etc in the printing process are accounted for?


7. How the finished goods ie currency notes are accounted for ?


8. Who keeps physical figures & possession of goods, inventory of all the above?


9. How the scrap paper is disposed off ?


10. From security angle who keeps track from start till dispatch ?

ILLEGAL RECRUITMENT IN R.B.I CURRENCY NOTE PRESS RESULTING IN
FREQUENT THEFTS ???

Dear sir,


I have applied for the post of STORES ASSISTANT in 1995 & for the post of PROCESS ASSISTANT in 1996 for vaccancies at Bharatiya Reserve Bank Note Mudran Private Limited ( BRBNMPL) MYSORE & SALBONI. I didn’t even get the interview/written test call letter. However candidates with lesser merit ranking were selected. My requests for a copy of merit ranking list fell on deaf ears. In the end of 1996, i once again applied for the posts of PROCESS ASSISTANT & MAINTANANCE ASSISTANT at BRBNMPL. This time round i got written test call letters for both posts. I have successfully cleared the common written test for both posts.


Subsequently i got the interview call letters for both posts. I have successfully appeared for the common interview for both posts. However candidates of lesser merit were selected & i didn’t get any
communication at all. My repeated requests for MERIT RANKING LIST fell on deaf ears. It is the criminals in R.B.I MANAGEMENT who declared a good printing machine at nasik security press as scrap & sold it to fake stamp paper king pin karim lala telgi It may be possible that the criminals in the R.B.I MANAGEMENT selected candidates who suited their criminal objectives. As a result there is
frequent occurrence of currency thefts & related irregularities at R.B.I CURRENCY NOTE PRESS, mysore & salboni. Hereby, i call upon the C.B.I to look into this matter. Also, hereby i urge you to provide me justice by giving merit ranking lists of all recruitments made from 1995onwards till date.
Specifically, for the above mentioned 4 posts in accordance with the TRANSPARENCY /RIGHT TO INFORMATION ACT of government of india.

KILLER COLAS & KILLER MEDICINES OF INDIA
– Government officials murdering innocents in league with greedy industrialists


In india, & many other 3rd world countries , the larger corporations , MNCs & industry lobby is literally running the governments. They are grossly abusing human rights of people. Hereby, HRW calls upon GOI to rein in those corporations. It is not the first time that , the harmful effects of colas – food beverages are made public. The government is aiding the cola companies in covering-up their crimes , in hiding harmful ingradients of their products in the name of trade secrets. The government is yet to enact a new food legislation making it mandatory for all manufacturers of food items to specifgically
mention the type & quantity of ingradients on each food product. Even , under the present food Act itself the government officials can ban the harmful colas & other products in the interest of public health & lives. Then how will they get kickbacks ?


The cola companies are so cunning & ruthless that they have used muscle power – rowdies , corrupt police personnel & assaulted harmless peaceful protestors. The cola companies have purchased justice previously in kerala & got favourable judgement. Due to presence of cola companies , under water table has depleted in surrounding villages. The farmers are unable to grow their crops & are committing suicides. One of the senior executive of a cola company – BEJOIS , MADE MURDER THREATS , FIX-UPS IN FALSE CASES TO EDITOR OF HUMAN RIGHTS WATCH’S and even made false complaint to police , but repeatedly failed to turn-up for enquiry fearing that truth will come out. The police closed the case subsequently.


In India , many medicines / drugs manufacturing companies are silently murdering thousands of innocent patients. Some of these companies are manufacturing counterfeit drugs of popular brands. Some MNCs , big drug companies are in cheating business , they are just filling chalk powder in tablets where as on the outer cover they mention ingradients & quantities of it which are not at all their in the product. The patients who are taking these chalk powder tablets , hoping that they will get cured of diseases are dying due to lack of proper medication. These greedy , cheating drug companies are also exporting these counterfeit drugs to many third world countries like Nigeria. The drugs controller of Nigeria has caught hold of evidences about these illegal drugs & their import from India. These companies with the aid of mafia even tried to finish her off. The GOI is yet to take action on her complaint. Silence of GOI bought for a price by drug companies.


Just a few months back , there was a programme called “bad medicine” on BBC channel , where in the drugs controller for Nigeria  proved that 95% of drugs in nigeria are fake & 80% of them are being exported from india. These indian fake medicines are killing hundreds of innocents in nigeria & she is crusading to control to control it. She has survived murder attempts by the pharma drugs mafia linked to india. She came over to india along with BBC correspondent & under- cover they went to greedy industrialists. The said industrialists- FAKE SPECIALISTS boasted how they fake the holograms , labels of big MNCs , how they add chalk powder , paracetamol to all tablets , how they gifted imported car to a chief minister in return for protecting their crimes fake businesses , etc. At the end, the drugs controller for india , refused to give an interview, EVEN TO MEET the BBC correspondent, fearing that all his beans will spill out. just 2 years back in karnataka, honourable lokayukta justice N.Venkatachala raided certain pharmaceutical
companies & drugs control department officials and unearthed a huge scam of Rs.200 crore of fake medicines. However the government didn’t take any action as politicians were also part of the ring & threw the report on a back burner.

In india, how many are dying due to fake medicines – the corrupt officials are covering the numbers & shielding the murderers the greedy industrialists. Previously HRW has appealed to government authorities including supreme court of India , but to no avail. It is a sad pointer to the grim fact that in India there is no value for human lives & the long
arm of corruption has even reached the apex court. JAI HIND , VANDE MATARAM , GOD’ SAVE MY INDIA.

COCA-COLA , PEPSI COLA & OTHER SOFT DRINK MANUFACTURERS
-Are you disclosing full information to the consumers about contents of your products ?

various soft drink manufacturers & bottled drinking water manufacturers draw their raw material- water from the tube wells . nowadays due to excessive usage of chemical fertilizers , pesticide , insecticides , the ground water table is polluted by these chemicals . these are very harmful for human beings. In some areas even the ground water is poisoned by arsenic & flouride . In addition the soft drink manufacturers use chemical flavours , food additives & preservatives in their products . these are also harmful to human beings above certain limits.


Some of the MNCs are practicing double standards , while in their home operations in the U.S.A they are strictly adhering to F.D.A norms as consumer safety is strictly enforced there by the government , while in India they have thrown to wind the consumer safety with respect to indian operations. The situation is so worse that it has been reported in the media that SOME FARMERS ARE USING THESE SOFT DRINKS AS PESTICIDES IN THEIR FARMS. Hereby, i want following questions answered by soft drink
manufacturers specifically coca-cola & pepsi,

1.how you are removing the harmful chemicals from the tube well water ie your raw material ?

2.how you are ensuring the proper mixture of food additives , preservatives & flavours within safe limits ?

3.why not you are giving the exact quantity of all contents in the soft drink of your’s on the product itself ?

4. are you exactly replicating your manufacturing & quality norms of your U.S.A operations in india ? if not why ?

5.are you strictly adhering to food norms of government of india ?

6. are you keeping the F.D.A NORMS OF U.S.A as benchmark for your operations in india ?

7. are you ready for the laboratory test of your product randomly selected by the consumer ?

8. Are they using genetically modified food ingredients ?

9. are they using ingredients sourced from animal origins ?.


RELIANCE INDUSTRIES LIMITED

-WHERE IS ACCOUNTABILITY?

Dear mukesh & anil ambani,

The reliance industries has always got a favourable treatment from the

state & central governments.there are allegations that ,

1.years ago, the central government gave import concessions for import of certain raw materials of textile sector ,which hugely benefitted the P.F.Y & TEXTILE projects of your’s ie reliance industries.

2.the O.N.G.C which has painstakingly surveyed the oil & gas reserves & prepared a list of lists,gave that list & you got godavari basin oil & gas project from the government .O.N.G.C could have developed it & earned millions.

3.few months back you were charged both by the government & cellular operators (GSM) that you are giving S.T.D & ROAMING FACILITIES to your reliance phone subscribers.your’s was only a W.L.L. they even claimed that you are misusing a legal loophole & causing crores of losses to the government & other GSM operators. however while the issue was before the T.R.A.I, the trai legalized your actions by announcing unified licence for telecom operators.

4.now you are charged by the government of re-routing ISD CALLS as local calls,thereby causing crores of losses to the government & BSNL.this time also you may get the reprieve from the government. the government ,if a commonman does not pay his electric bills in time

slaps interest & cuts down the electric supply immediately.

however the same government ,even if your company has been alleged of causing crores of rupees losses to the government & other players, always enacts favourable laws for you like

a SANTA CLAUS.

WILL YOU PLEASE CLARIFY mr.mukesh ambani & mr.anil ambani?

the TRAI announced unified licence regime in haste that too with retrospective effects.so all the charges against reliance were dropped. in the same vein as unified licence got retrospective effect , why not the government re-imburse the differece amount out of hefty fees collected from other cellular operators ? take the reliance fees as bench mark.anyway , finally commonman is the looser.

CASES OF RELIANCE INDUSTRIES LIMITED

RIL transported tonnes of steel on these!

Income Tax dept serves assessment notice exposing bogus transactions;vReliance says claims genuine, goes in appeal to tribunal

C Unnikrishnan

The income tax department has issued a showcause notice to Mukesh Ambani’s Reliance Industries’ Limited and then passed an assessment order pointing out that the company has made some bogus transactions to evade income tax for the assessment year 2003-2004.

These transactions relate to the purchase of tonnes of steel from various parties for their projects in Jamnagar. However I-T investigations reveal that these parties don’t exist, except on paper, or in some cases if the do, they don’t deal in steel. Further, the department’s  investigation wing also found out that the registration numbers of the vehicles that were allegedly used to transport tones of steel actually belonged to sundry motorcycles, scooters, one car and even an autorickshaw!

Of the 76 transport vehicles mentioned by the RIL suppliers three vehicles were not allotted the numbers by the transport officers and owners of most vehicles denied any delivery while others did not have the permit to enter Gujarat.

These details were then passed on to the assessment wing of the department which carried the probe further and issued the company a showcause notice. In response to that RIL denied any wrongdoing and said they had receipts of the steel delivered and claimed depreciation

worth Rs 32 lakhs. (See box) However, the I-T department refused to accept this claim and gave a detailed account of the way the case was cracked. The modus operandi is mentioned in the assessment order sent to RIL, a copy of which is with this newspaper.

This is how it goes: RIL claims to have made steel purchases from several companies  belonging to the Mumbai-based P K Agarwal group. This group had in turn reportedly purchased steel from three other concerns of Laxmi Exports, the proprietor of which is a certain

Vinayak Kokate. Kokate in his  statement to the department then admitted that there were no genuine transactions carried out. Kokate even said his role was to deposit cheque/demand draft issued by RIL in the bank account, withdraw the same in cash and hand it over to one man addressed as ‘Masa’. His identity is still secret. After some time, this account was closed and another one opened in a different name. Kokata was paid a remuneration of Rs 20,000 for this.

“Beacuse of these irregularities we are being extra-cautious this year and probing all suppliers,” said a senior I-T official on condition of anonymity. RIL has now gone in appeal to the tribunal against this assessment order. Their spokesperson refused to comment saying they would await the verdict of the tribunal.

WHY RIL DID IT

This has been done basically to claim depreciation on a non-existent asset. As the claim of depreciation increases, the incidence of tax proportionately goes down. According to I-T sources, use of bogus purchases also helps the corporate entity to generate cash. The person

who introduces the bogus purchases charges a small percentage usually 2% to 4% of the invoice/bill value and after routing the cheque through the bank account arranges for withdrawal of the cash after retaining his service charge of 2% to 4% as the case may be. This cash

then gets introduced into the system wherever unaccounted payments are to be made.Govt bails out Ambani

PRESS TRUST OF INDIA

Posted online: Thursday, March 09, 2006 at 1545 hours IST

Updated: Thursday, March 09, 2006 at 1609 hours IST

NEW DELHI, MARCH 9:  In a major relief to Reliance group firm IPCL, the government has ruled that state-run gas firm GAIL (India) Ltd cannot charge marketing margin on supply of natural gas.

“In terms of the gas pricing order dated June 20, 2005, GAIL is not entitled to levy any marketing margin on any category of consumers for supply of APM (government regulated) or JV gas,” a Ministry of Petroleum and Natural Gas order said.

The order comes after Mukesh Ambani-controlled Indian Petrochemicals Corp Ltd (IPCL) approached the ministry against GAIL’s notice to terminate gas supplies unless marketing margins were paid.

The ministry’s order states that “in the gas pricing order dated June 20, 2005 effective from July 1, 2005, the government has enunciated a dual pricing regime for different categories of consumers, which is Rs 3,200 per thousand cubic meters to power, fertiliser and court

mandated/small consumers and the market regulated price for all other consumers.”

“The said pricing order does not envisage marketing margin on supplies to any particular category of consumers. Furthermore, there are no new marketing efforts made by GAIL post-June 30, 2005 vis-a-vis any of these consumers,” it said.

GAIL had demanded from IPCL a marketing margin of Rs 222 per thousand cubic meters on the government-administered or APM gas, which it was supplying to IPCL’s plants at Baroda, Gandhar (Gujarat) and Nagathone (Maharashtra).

GAIL had last month stated that “IPCL has not signed the revised gas supply agreement with GAIL after the government pricing order which came into effect from July 1, 2005,” a ground enough to terminate gas supplies.

Another example of Reliance profiting at the cost of a PSU (read as people of India).

This has been happening so often that it is now evident to every educated person that Reliance Group is out to subjugate our beloved nation.

It is for the people to unite and defeat their evil intentions

RIL’s unfair trade practices with government connivance

Bade Telgi Ka Kamal Friends, You can see how Bada Telgi continues to Con Government And Public Of India. RIL had slight surplus LPG after using most of it for internal consumption and sales to PSUs. This 1,48,000 T is just 0.5% of over 30 Million Ton Jamnagar throughput.

Instead of selling it to PSUs at already contracted rates, it seeks GOI permission to export it but in actual practice wants to sell it PSUs at the import price these PSUs pay for exports, not the

contracted sale price for direct purchase. So many Bada and Chhota Telgis rob India in addition to tax concessions Rs. 1,56,000 crores which Business Standards termed as “Tax Dodges”. We should raise such vital issues at our meetings and groups and pass resolutions against such “Daylight Robbery”. Ravinder Singh Reliance seeks permission for LPG export New Delhi, May 5

http://www.tribuneindia.com/2006/20060506/biz.htm#6

Reliance Industries Ltd, which operates India’s largest refinery at Jamnagarin Gujarat, has sought government permission to export 148,000 tonnes of surplus LPG in May-July. Indian Oil Corp, on behalf of the industry, had last fiscal tied-up several tonnes of LPG imports from

suppliers, including Saudi Aramco of Saudi Arabia and Abu Dhabi National Oil Corp. Industry sources said Reliance wants the IOC, which had tied-up the imports for itself and on behalf of sister public sector oil firms Hindustan Petroleum and Bharat Petroleum, to import the contracted cargoes and the surplus LPG in the system could be exported by RIL from its Jamnagar refinery. “As RIL suffers losses in disposal of LPG import cargoes in the international market, it would be prudent for RIL to plan export of its own produced LPG,” the company wrote to the Petroleum Ministry. Currently, LPG cannot be exported without government nod.

RELIANCE LOOT OF Rs.95OO CRORE ?

Showcause notice for non-payment of additional duty.

The Central Excise and Customs Department today issued a showcause notice to Reliance Industries Ltd, asking the company to explain why action should not be taken against it for unpaid duty amounting to Rs 9,500 crore.

The notice has been issued for non-payment of duty on export of petrol, high-speed diesel and aviation turbine fuel from the company’s Jamnagar refinery during the five-year period from August 31, 2000 to August 31, 2005. The basis of the notice is an observation made by the Comptroller- and Auditor-General’s office in Gujarat.

The CAG has contended that though RIL was exempt from the payment of basic excise duty on export of petroleum products, it has to pay an additional duty on the same.

According to sources, RIL was to pay an additional excise duty at a rate of Re 1 per litre on the exports, which was later raised to Rs 1.50 per litre.

Central excise and Customs sources in Rajkot confirmed that the notice was issued by the department this morning.

“We have issued a notice to the company for the Rs 9,500-crore additional duty on exports made by the company from its Jamnagar refinery,” the sources said.

When contacted by Business Standard, an RIL spokesperson said he would not like to comment on the issue.

With good profit margins, RIL has been exporting a sizeable output of petroleum products from its Jamnagar refinery.

According to RIL’s annual report for the last financial year, the refining business had a net turnover of Rs 48,183 crore against Rs 39,258 crore in 2003-04. RIL exported 10.2 million tonnes of refining products to 30 countries in 2004-05. Iran in West Asia and Brazil in South America are some of RIL’s major markets for diesel and petrol.

The company’s exports of petroleum products are expected to jump significantly once the planned expansion of the Jamnagar refinery, to 60 million tonnes, is completed.
