    Vikram, basically, it relates to suo moto disclosure. 4 (1) (b) (iii) : the chain of officials, i.e. reporting, reviewing and accepting, are always known to the employees to be reported upon; and even if these names are not known, an employee can ask for it, which i dont think any PA can refuse. 4 (1) (d) : as far as the adverse entries in the ACRs are concerned, adverse entries cannot be made by any authority, if notes advising employee (to be reporte upon) to improve upon or memoranda of services calling for explanations, etc. are not issued to the employee. So, if an adverse entry is made, the employee can always ask for the reasons of such adverse entries.

    Sir

    sorry for not explaining it earlier.

    In a redress process, the complainant submits a complaint against a ACR or non emnallanement.

    the complainant provides reason of bias reporting against him in the submitted complaint. If he is a victim of a corrupt IO/RO, he submits the case and also proof.

    Now the administrative justice channel has officials who are suppose to verify the veracity of the issues. They also seek comments of IO/RO/SRO. Based on their own interpretations they draft comments for redress from the Competent Authority who has powers to give redress.

    Now the process gets diluted as the officials in administrative channel are bribed/ school/college mates/ course mates who can get influenced by IO /RO/SRO to give comments in their favour.

    The complainant is never made aware what comments were offered by IO/RO/SRO and also what further interpretations in file noting as made. It also allows immunity to all that they can suppress facts/corrupt issues to aid the corrupt IO/RO/SRO.

    The mockery is the complainant is never involved in the process of justice and he is given a plain speaking order that complaint is rejected.


    Now I have raised an issue that Under Section 4 (1) (b) (iii) i am entitled to know the process and file noting of the redress procedure that under went with copies of comments of IO/RO/SRO AND also copies of recommendation of the officials of administrative justice for the competent auth. That information will provide the information that a complaint redress has been addressed in the manner he wanted without any issues left out.

    Under Section 4 (1) (d) i am also entitled a file noting of reason of rejection as a mere speaking order of the competent auth is not giving transparency of the issues if that were ever addressed.

    Hence apart from ACR the redress of ACR is also important.

    That transparency will prevent lot of manipulation in hidden file noting of redress against well conneected powerful corrupt IO/RO/SRO. They know if thier misdeed are accepted as on record they will be also questioned. so they try level best to find links inside to modify the truth and make a complanant suffer as he is never mader aware of his redress documents under old OSA rules.

    Details under Sec 4 (1)(b)(iii) would only give you the bare 'procedure' followed in the decision making process, including channels of supervision and accountability. Information under this section will furnish you what you already know, that is the comments are taken from so and so etc. and a reasoned order is passed by an authority who is competent to do so. It reveals only the 'process'. Not the details of what actually happened in the process. Now this does not tell you what each person commented at any stage. That is not convered under Sec 4(1)(b)(iii). For that you have to apply for the file notings or the copies of the correspondence exchanged between the authority and the IO, RO, SRO etc. No need to invoke Sec 4(1)(b)(iii).

    They are mentioning fiduciary relationship plus ACR related document not under RTI Act as an excuse and hence not disclosing the file noting.

    I have used the real explanation of fiduciary relationship as discussed in thread of fiduciary relationship and also it will expose corruption / favouritism /nepotism.

    I am waiting for the reply by FAA.

    Since you have gone through the contents of fiduciary relationship in this thread and preferred and appeal to the FAA, wait for the disposal. If still aggrieved by the order of the FAA, prefer second appeal to CIC on the basis of inputs in the thread. We wish you good luck.

    Annual Confidential reports is prepared by the higher up's on their subordinates.If one officer says that his subordinate is good, the same subordinate is called bad by another officer.It depends on the subordinates adjustability towards the higher up's.Why should we bother? It's a pair show.

    Why cannot that pair show be transparent and that is the goal of eliminating corruption

    Dear Mr J Peter

    if one righteous officer were assessed by somebody with whom the righteous ratee disagreed on something dishonest with his superior and the superior has the audacity to rate a righteous junior lower as vengeance in hidden portion and not in visible portion, the superior is lacking in moral courage.

    If one were dishonest and a righteous reporting officer grades a dishonest officer as lower in visible portion, he is having moral courage of keeping his own house in order first and then grading the dishonest what he deserve .


    The basic concept of writing a CR must be based on truthful transparent reporting. It will have following inference for four categories of ratee officers.

    (aa) A dishonest ratee under a dishonest IO or RO has no problems. He is a party to all illogical activities and will in any case always get a good CR from a similar minded IO/ RO in a corrupt and double standard environment. He does not require any protection from any organzation rule but on the contrary organization must screen a dishonest ratee with his IO and RO for all shady deals if some complaint is reported against them.

    (ab) An honest and competent ratee under a competent and honest IO or RO also is not much concerned of hidden portion because of mutual faith and recognition of work. It is a pleasure to work in such an environment where nobody has apprehension of being made a pressurized sacrificial lamb but an urge to keep improving own competence under guidance of a good IO and RO. Most of my life I had the privilege to work under many such great men who were total team men approachable to all juniors and lived / rose in high ranks through ethics means only.

    (ac) It is protection to a honest ratee under a dishonest IO / RO / SRO who has to be protected by some rule before only. The respective IO and RO if they are forced with an open and transparent CR system and have to harm a ratee openly will perforce have to keep their own house in order lest it backfires. In that way it is also being ensured that a IO or RO are perforce clean themselves and the whole working environment as a result is clean with assessment now based solely on competence and not shady deals. The ratee is also aware that his competence only will be judged not personal favors.

    (ad) If a honest IO or RO are aware of a dishonest or incompetent ratee, they do not have to resort to an above avg grading in visible portion and average in non visible portion. I am sure they will have that courage of conviction to make a fool proof case to put the hard facts to a Ratee.
