out maintenance works worth Rs 890 lakh on August 3 The Indian Express in its August 1 report published on the basis of details available through RTI application had highlighted 14 fire accidents at the lab in the last 15 years most of which were due to short-circuits In the process the public-funded lab had incurred loss of Rs 787 crore since 2002 Of these short-circuit alone dug a hole in the lab’s budget by Rs 748 crore Though the latest tender issued indicates urgent repair works that need to be initiated it does not specify the exact nature of works or areas where electrical repair

ensure China’s rise does not bring risks of instability or conflict Related News By: Rory Medcalf India and Australia are forging new ties through education and investment It is rare in diplomacy to witness the transformation of relations between two countries But that is what I have been privileged to see in Australia-India ties since I first went to Delhi as a diplomat 14 years ago We are no longer estranged democracies mutually indifferent and uncomprehending separated by much more than the Indian Ocean A set of candid and in-depth talks last week confirmed that Australia and India now have a firm foundation to advance together to face the challenges of an Indo-Pacific century The talks were the Australia-India Roundtable which has grown from an informal dialogue among scholars to a programme of events involving senior officials experts the media parliamentarians and business figures It is now supported by the external affairs ministries of both governments as well as prominent thinktanks The messages were clear Advancing relations between the two countries is a long game — Test cricket not Twenty20 — and a league of champions is forming on both sides to ensure that we get through the tough times Relations between democracies will always have rocky phases as the US-India experience reminds us Between Delhi and Canberra the current story is good Migration is building a bridge between our societies with 450000 Australians of Indian origin and Hinduism our fastest growing faith With India in an election year Australians are paying unprecedented attention to the workings of Indian democracy and the movement for change in Indian society Within Australia governments and businesses are ready to engage with whichever leadership the world’s biggest exercise in democracy anoints — as a recent visit to Gujarat by New South Wales Premier Barry O’Farrell reminds us Likewise Indians now take an interest in what happens in Australia’s corridors of power Many took an interest in the fate of former Australian Labor party leader Julia Gillard our first female prime minister overthrown in a fleeting comeback by Kevin Rudd before his defeat at the polls by conservative leader Tony Abbott last September Gillard had proven herself a friend to India by overturning her party’s ban on uranium sales as well as driving efforts to address the student crisis in 2009 and 2010 Abbott is promising to maintain such a focus on India Misunderstandings over the treatment of Indian students and the sale of uranium are behind us There is bipartisan support in Australia for uranium exports to India in line with the same standards we ask of other customers The safeguards agreement currently being negotiated should discriminate neither against India nor for it On the student issue Lowy Institute polling shows that most Indians respect Australian institutions and values even while many harbour concerns about whether Australia offers a welcoming environment Student numbers in Australia are growing again Along with improved societal relations comes the interchange of knowledge and money In the short term the economic relationship has hit a soft patch not least because of the struggling Indian economy and the high Australian dollar But the future remains bright Education innovation and business investment look set to be the pillars of Australia-India ties in the years ahead Top Australian universities such as the University of New South Wales are creating new knowledge in materials engineering renewable energy medicine water resources management space and defence technology Much of this could be applicable to Indian conditions though it is essential that both governments maintain the joint scientific research fund that has underwritten much of this research Roundtable delegates recognised the potential for Indian industry to commercialise and scale up ideas made in Australia And Indian investment is already making its mark in other ways: delegates noted that environmental approvals had been granted for Adani and GVK’s plans for massive coal-export infrastructure in the Australian state of Queensland This has implications for Indian energy security and new patterns of energy commerce through the sea lanes of Asia from mines in Australia to India China and beyond The two nations also share strategic problems: how to ensure China’s rise does not bring risks of instability or conflict and how to salvage some security hope and order from the next phase in Afghanistan’s painful history Just as Australians and Indians fought and died alongside each other in the Great War that began a hundred years ago Australia and India are well-placed to help each other deal with future security challenges Bilateral naval exercises due to begin in 2015 will train our militaries to work together A recent Chinese naval foray into the Indian Ocean suggests that India should work with Australia and Indonesia to create a shared operating picture of what happens in our contiguous maritime zones More broadly the dialogue made it clear that India and Australia have an interest in strengthening diplomatic forums where both are present — notably the East Asia Summit and the G20 due to bring leaders to Brisbane this November That date is the perfect chance for the next Indian prime minister to visit Australia No Indian leader has done so since Rajiv Gandhi in 1986 It was a disappointment and a lost opportunity that Prime Minister Manmohan Singh never managed it An Indian prime ministerial

October 24 2014 10:01 am Related News The Central Information Commission has been headless since August 22 and in the interim the Right to Information is being eroded A month ago the Madras High Court invited widespread criticism by ruling that an RTI applicant must state reasons for seeking information and that she must serve the public interest Now the office of the governor of Maharashtra has issued a government resolution empowering officers to ignore requests that do not serve any public interest The Madras High Court had moved suo motu to review its own order clarifying that it violated Section 6(2) of the RTI Act which states that an application does not have to disclose reasons However the resolution in Maharashtra remains to be reversed These moves appear to stem from impatience about frivolous and motivated requests As the Madras High Court had explained the legislatures had not intended that information was to be handed out “like pamphlets to any person unmindful of the object” In Mumbai the Raj Bhavan is particularly disinterested in providing personal information that may compromise privacy especially in matters which may serve a private interest However the authorities cannot ascribe motive or lack of it — which is frivolity by another name — to applicants with any degree of certainty until the information released is put to use Or not used as the case may be Besides to declare the motive of an RTI query in advance is self-defeating alerting the very authorities that it may be designed to catch out The mechanism came with automatism built in precisely to negate governmental discretion The prevention of misuse should not be the first concern in the working of a law Efficiency in use should routinely trump that argument specially in laws that effect fundamental changes in human behaviour and public practices A parallel may be drawn with the anti-dowry law which is turning the tide on a mainstream but ugly custom Its provisions are perceived to have been widely misused but the Supreme Court has nevertheless upheld Section 498A of the IPC which criminalises cruelty to women while warning that it should not be used to settle scores This year Lalitha Kumaramangalam the new chairperson of the National Commission of Women admitted that the law is misused but rejected this as a ground for dilution The parallel with the RTI controversy is remarkable and by the same logic the law that exposed the Adarsh scam and so many others must not be diluted For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Related
