A group of RTI activists representing “Right to Information Activists Social Welfare Society” held a meeting with Union Minister of State (Independent Charge) of the Ministry of Development of North Eastern Region (DoNER), MoS PMO, Personnel, Public Grievances & Pensions, Atomic Energy and Space, Dr Jitendra Singh here today and discussed issues regarding citizens’ right to information and related concerns.
During the meeting, Dr Jitendra Singh allayed fears and apprehensions appearing in a section of media that there was any move by Shri Narendra Modi Government to dilute or curtail the Right To Information. He said, on the contrary, the Government had, in the last four years, worked on the principle of increasing citizen participation in governance, with more accountability and transparency.
Dr Jitendra Singh said, it was during this Government that all the 11 vacancies of the Central Information Commission were sought to be filled by the government whereas, during the earlier times, there had been occasions when sometimes, Information Commission was functioning with just three or four members. Not only this, he said, the pendency of the RTI applications has been tremendously brought down and the time of disposal also curtailed.
Dr Jitendra Singh said, in the last four years, most of the public authorities numbering around 2000 have been brought under the purview of the RTI Act, which was not so before.
Among the various suggestions made by the members of the delegation were that through the RTIs filed through them, they are able to extract certain crucial pieces of information which can be of great importance from the point of view of administration and public service and therefore, there should be a proper institutionalized mechanism to be able to share the same at a wider level for a larger benefit.
The RTI activists shared Dr Jitendra Singh’s concern about frivolous RTI applications and even suggested to the Minister that some kind of a check mechanism could be evolved like, for example, imposing a fine on a frivolous RTI or making it mandatory for the RTI applicant to disclose his Aadhaar number in order to check the possibility of a fake RTI.
The RTI activists were in favour of having a continuous and aggressive awareness campaign to educate the general masses about the utility of RTI for ensuring transparency and at the same time, also cautioning them against the misuse of RTI for mala-fide motives. The Minister appreciated the suggestion and said this suggestion could be further worked upon more constructively.
Among the activists who comprised the delegation were Dr D.C. Prajapati, Dr M.C. Sharma, Iqbal Sanjhi, Pawan Rawat, Vikush Sharma, Anju Chowdhary, Avinash Shukla and others.

Where there's no phone there's no way of communication

New ticket confirmation process in Railways

Ministry of Railways
New ticket confirmation process in Railways
A tool has been developed to predict the probability of waitlisted ticket getting confirmed at the time of booking as well as during Passenger Name Record (PNR) enquiry of waitlisted ticket. The tool has been developed using the algorithm of Machine learning.
The machine learning model has been developed using the waitlisted PNR data of past 2 years. This model creates the pattern for the various waitlist scenarios and predicts the probability for the future date journey. Currently this feature is integrated with Indian Railway Catering & Tourism Corporation (IRCTC) website only. In IRCTC website this feature is operational w.e.f. 13 June, 2018 as under:-
When the user is doing the booking transaction, and if the status of accommodation availability of the inputted journey is waitlisted, then the user can check the probability of confirmation. At the time of PNR enquiry of waitlisted ticket, the user can check the probability of confirmation. As far as trends of confirmation chances and cancellation chances probability is concerned, it is informed that it varies depending upon peak and lean periods, type of trains like short distance trains, long journey trains, trains with limited stoppage, etc.
In the computerised Passenger Reservation System (PRS), confirmed berths/seats are allotted on first come first served basis till the availability and thereafter Reservation Against Cancellation (RAC)/Waiting List tickets are issued. The status of RAC/Waiting List tickets get automatically updated against the cancellation of confirmed berths/seats and also against release of unutilised reservation quotas.
To facilitate those passengers who have to undertake journey at short notice and to save such passengers from the clutches of unscrupulous elements/touts, Tatkal scheme of reservation is available where the accommodation becomes available for booking on the previous day of journey from train originating station. Further, with a view to providing confirmed accommodation to waiting list passengers and to ensure optimal utilisation of available accommodation, a scheme known as Alternate Train Accommodation (ATAS) known as “VIKALP” was introduced as a pilot project in November, 2015. This scheme has been expanded to cover all type of train on all sectors from 01.04.2017. For this facility, waiting list passenger has to give an option at the time of booking of ticket & passengers with waiting list status at the time of preparation of first reservation charts are shifted to other trains, subject to availability of vacant accommodation.
In the computerized PRS there is already a provision to permit cancer patients and their attendants travelling on concessional tickets issued in exchange of concession certificate, to directly access Emergency Quota at the time of booking itself. Maximum number of berths/seats out of the Emergency Quota in a train, which can be accessed by Cancer patients and their attendants in Sleeper, is 4 and 2 each in AC Chair Car, AC 3 tier, AC 2 tier and First Classes. In addition, separate Cancer Patient Quota has also been defined in some identified trains. Moreover, instructions are also there that in case requests are received for confirmation of berths out of emergency quota from patients who have to undertake journey for checkup like cancer treatment and dangerous ailments which cannot be postponed due to compelling circumstances, the same should be considered by quota controlling authority as per extant norms so as to accommodate to the extent feasible after satisfying themselves of the genuineness of travel.
This information was given by the Minister of State of Railways Shri Rajen Gohain in a written reply to a question in Rajya Sabha today.

UPU News:-UPU’s Extraordinary Congress can inspire beneficial change throughout the postal sector

Delivering continuous improvement is something of a mantra at the Universal Postal Union (UPU), one driven by the constant change experienced in the postal sector.

Our determination to support the sector has led to advances in the area of postal technology, and to UPU offering deep insights into the postal business.

In other words, in rain and in sunshine, whatever the situation, no matter the problem, UPU has been a permanent partner of the postal sector.

The relationship has been profoundly successful; however, there has been a growing realization at UPU that we need to be at our optimal best, if we are to truly help the sector during this period.

This is why September’s Extraordinary Congress in Addis Ababa is so important.

It offers an opportunity to fine-tune the organization, so it can continue to function as the cornerstone of the global postal industry. 

Decisions taken at the Congress will strengthen the organization’s financial security, streamline some of our processes, as well as support the postal network in areas such as remuneration rates. 

But being fit for purpose is also about having a purpose that fits. At UPU, we have a comprehensive understanding of our mission to help the postal sector.

First, in the area of international cooperation, our multilateral treaties are ensuring that the postal environment is geared for success.

Second, our unswerving commitment to providing access to affordable postal technology empowers operators and enables them to be cost-effective and to work at the leading edge.

Finally, our projects, aimed at the grassroots and regional levels, leverage e-commerce solutions, digitalization, financial inclusion and sustainable development to ensure postal operators contribute fully to their country’s economy.

Of course, working for the good of the sector places a great responsibility on our shoulders, but it is also a position of trust and confidence that we readily accept.

Our engagement with the industry has encouraged us to look deep into the organization and to continually evolve and improve. We owe the industry nothing less.

The agenda for Addis Ababa is one of the most important in UPU’s long history and the Congress can lay the foundation for a better future for the global postal network.
