Hyderabad set to showcase world class policing soon

Hyderabad set to showcase world class policing soon | Centre For Good Governance | Scoop.it
Hyderabad: In order to improve their response-time during emergencies and also to create hassle-free roads for the citizens of Hyderabad, the city police are adopting new, innovative technologies that are used across many highly-populated and developed cities, in the world. In the recent week-long tour of the United States by the senior officials of Telangana State Police Department, solutions were identified for irking issues such as parking, dissatisfactory-response during emergencies and lack of surveillance on anti-social elements. A team headed by Telangana Director General of Police Anurag Sharma accompanied by Principal Secretary (Home) Rajiv Trivedi, Hyderabad City Police Commissioner Mahender Reddy, Additional Commissioner (Traffic) Jitender and M Ramesh Reddy S P (Intelligence) visited New York and Washington to study the advanced technological interventions. The officials visited New York City Police Department (NYPD), Department of Transportation of New York State, Real Time Crime Centre and Fusion Technology Centre in New York apart from the Metropolitan Police headquarters at Washington D C. Traffic management As part of their study on traffic management, the officers visited some of the major streets and junctions in New York City to study and assimilate the technology implemented by the New York Police and Transport Department. The officers will soon be getting the automatic traffic enforcement vehicles to the city. The vehicles equipped with CC Cameras on the top, will automatically detect parking violations, over-speeding and irregular driving based on sensors, and generate e-challans. The automated parking machines that are to be brought to the city will give a send-off to the parking mafia and bring huge relief to the public. The systems will generate a ticket mentioning the price, time and validity for parking of a vehicle, based on the available space. “A commuter would have to chose the empty space available in the parking lot and obtain a ticket by entering the vehicle registration number and paying the money,” said IT Inspector T Srinath Reddy, who was also part of the tour. “In order to reduce traffic congestions, a pedestrian system for crossing at junctions and a ‘street and multilevel’ parking system would be implemented in Hyderabad, along the likes of New York and Washington D C,” said Srinath Reddy. Safety and Security In order to learn about the mechanism of the CC Cameras, the officers visited the well known Broadway Street and the highly popular Times Square, which has the highest footfall, round the clock. “By visiting the busy areas, we understood the CC Camera surveillance mechanism. A Real Time Crime Centre has to be established, where the field officers get 24/7 support regarding data of criminals and suspects. Though we already have the integrated software that allows our men to get details of the suspects, we have to integrate data pertaining to every department and citizen,” said the Inspector. http://www.thehansindia.com/posts/index/Telangana/2016-05-27/Hyderabad-set-to-showcase-world-class-policing-soon/230685

Support System Must to Protect Officers

Former home secretary K Padmanabaiah (left) releasing the Telugu version of book ‘Ethics on Governance’ penned by former chief secretary Mohan Kanda (right) in Hyderabad on Friday | Neeraj Murali

Centre for Good Governance's insight:

HYDERABAD:A support system is needed to protect upright officers in these days of declining ethics, believes former home secretary K Padmanabaiah.

Releasing the Telugu version of ‘Ethics in Governance’ penned by former chief secretary Mohan Kanda at the Centre for Good Governance here Friday,  Padmanabaiah observed that accountability and responsibility have to be brought in to ensure ethics ingovernance.

As the Union Public Service Commission has a separate paper of 300 marks on ethics, this book written by an experienced bureaucrat with practical insights will be of great help to students preparing for competitive exams, felt Padmanabaiah.

Former bureaucrat Phani Kumar said there cannot be a better book on ethics in governance at a time when politicians are hopping from one party to the other in quest of power by setting aside all ideals.

As Ethics in Governance, released a year ago, received a good response, it was translated into Telugu for the benefit of Telugu readers and students. CGG director general K Ramakrishna Rao,author MohanKanda, Telugu translator M Rajeshwar Rao, among others were present on the occasion.

Plan to urbanise rural areas

Plan to urbanise rural areas | Centre For Good Governance | Scoop.it
Centre for Good Governance's insight:

Minister for Information Technology and Panchayat Raj K.Taraka Rama Rao has on Friday, said that roof-top solar panels would be made mandatory for new buildings coming up in the city, and requested the GHMC to enforce the relevant regulation forcefully.

Speaking after inaugurating a workshop on the theme ‘Transforming Indian Cities to Smart Cities’, in the run-up to the 11th Metropolis World Congress-2014 to be held between October 6 and 10, he said the rule remains unimplemented thus far due to lack of enforcement. “Laws are wonderful. But enforcement is slack,” Mr.Rao said.

Mr. Rao also revealed the government’s intentions to provide urban facilities in rural areas too, towards improving quality of life. He said the challenge before the government is two-fold— to make cities smarter and to provide urban facilities in rural parts too.

Drawing a comparison with Kerala where, he said one cannot recognise the difference between rural and urban areas, he sought to remind that 39 per cent of Telangana State is in its urban parts. Better energy management, traffic management, sanitation, water supply, health and education are primary requirements for smart cities in India, he noted.

Not one panacea is applicable to all cities, he averred, while recalling the influx of experts with smart city solutions into his office soon after the Central budget. “India is a complicated and heterogeneous country. Smart city applications which succeeded elsewhere would not apply here. We need smart citizens and smart citizen services for that,” he said.

Listing out the initiatives of the government for making city safe and green, he said technology would be leveraged to ensure quality of life and better living standards.

GHMC Commissioner Somesh Kumar said the congress would be a melting pot of various ideas of smart cities, and further enriches the discourse.

Better energy and traffic management, sanitation, water supply, health and education are primary requirements for smart cities, says KTR

‘Civil Servants play key role in nation building’

‘Civil Servants play key role in nation building’ | Centre For Good Governance | Scoop.it
Centre for Good Governance's insight:

 

Justice B Chandra Kumar of the High Court of Andhra Pradesh said ‘honest intellectuals’ and ‘purposeful persons’ who could influence society and help steer the nation in the right direction needed.

Recalling the sincerity and no-compromise-on-values attitude of officers in the Civil Services, even in the face of trying situations, he said they played a key role.

Broader perspective

They had a broader perspective of the world and tried to ferret out the truth following their instincts, he said. Decision-making at higher levels of the bureaucracy was influenced by several factors that necessitated the use of brains without being influenced by prejudice, he stated.

Releasing ‘Ethics in Governance - Resolution of Dilemmas’, written by former Indian Administrative Service officer Mohan Kanda, he pointed out examples of situations where honest officers faced challenges and appreciated them for not buckling under pressure and maintaining their stature.

From a young age, children should be taught the importance of values and parents and teachers were responsible for guiding them in their formative years, being role models, Mr. Chandra Kumar said.

‘Ultimate bosses’

Giving glimpses of the content in his book, Mr. Mohan Kanda said with ethics not being a static subject, he had focussed on typical, everyday problems faced by the administration.

The book was written on the perspective and premise that people were the ‘ultimate bosses’, he said.

Former IAS officer M. Gopala Krishna described governance as ‘stewardship’ that should set the direction and also fix the speed.

He termed the book as timely and said it responded to the needs of a democracy like India with challenges that included corruption, crime, communalism and casteism.

Decision-making at higher levels is influenced by several factors that necessitate the use of brains without being influenced by prejudice: Justice Chandra Kumar

GOOD DEEDS MAKE YOU FEEL BETTER

GOOD DEEDS MAKE YOU FEEL BETTER | Centre For Good Governance | Scoop.it
Centre for Good Governance's insight:

K Ramakrishna Rao /splSecretary, Finance, Telangana government:We often hearelders sayingthat whatever we do, we have to do it Manasaa,Wachaa, Karmana. It means, any work should be done by bringing mind, word and act together. We all have to strive to achieve a state where our thoughts, speech and actions coincide. As you sow, so you reap. The seeds of thought sown in our mind will be the same as we think. We all will do what they think. If we think badly about others, our actions will also be bad. 

 

If we think positively, then we also act positively. And if we have a clean thoughtand clean talk, whatever we do will only be good for others. And when we do good deeds, it makes people happy. When we talk good and do good deeds, there will be some sort of joy within our soul and our inner thoughts subconsciously tend to become pure. We feel we are making some positive contribution to the society and achieving something positive. And that makes us feel better and better. The positive aura will remain around us wherever we go. So, think, speak and do good things and you will see smiles on the faces of people around you and there will be one of yours as well. Positive deeds would kick start a positive cycle of activity that would help us. If people have negative thoughts, they would be worrying all the time. They would start not to believe others. This would end up in serious mess up. Ad whatever we do, we have to do it with all seriousness and of course, with a lot of sincerity. 

If one starts scheming for everything, it leads to developing negative attitude and people will see only negative traits in us. Former IAS officer Ugandhar is my role model. He taught me how to add value to the work. Former RBI Governor Dr Y V Reddy is also my role model. It is always better to help others and I feel it as the need of the hour.

 

It Takes many Good Deeds to build a good reputation and only one bad one to lose It – Benjamin Franklin

Releasing ‘Ethics in Governance - Resolution of Dilemmas’, written by former Indian Administrative Service officer Mohan Kanda

Releasing ‘Ethics in Governance - Resolution of Dilemmas’, written by former Indian Administrative Service officer Mohan Kanda | Centre For Good Governance | Scoop.it
Centre for Good Governance's insight:

Role of Honest Intellectuals in Society Important: Judge

Honesty is the best policy, especially for civil servants who are bound by oath to lead by example and discharge their duty with sincerity and honesty, observed High Court judge Justice B Chandra Kumar.

Addressing civil servants after releasing the book — Ethics in Governance Resolution of Dilemmas with Case Studies, authored by retired IAS officer and former chief secretary Mohan Kanda at the Centre for Good Governance here Sunday, Kumar said the role of honest intellectuals in society is very important and added that those who serve society without expecting anything in return are remembered more than those who are successful.

“Public servants should constantly ask themselves this question — who do we serve?” the High Court Judge opined and said, “Only free thinking can take one nearer to the truth.” Chandra Kumar dwelt at length on how material wealth, considered important by many, leads to corruption and other unethical practices.

Citing examples from his own life, he advised the gathering to follow good principles and lead the next generation in the right path. “This is the very essence of the book written by Mohan Kanda and I congratulate him for it,” he said.

Introducing the book, retired IAS officer M Gopal Krishna, who also presided over the programme, elaborated on the hallmarks of good governance.

Describing the book as a guide for aspiring and working civil servants, he said one should understand that ethics are the foundation on which better and able governance can be achieved. 

Explaining the dilemmas an officer could face while discharging his duty, Krishna opined that there should be no nexus between crime and politics and added that the book has all the parameters required to make it a good read.

Speaking on the occasion, Mohan Kanda explained his inspiration for the book and the relevance of the topic in the present situation.

School in the desert

LIVE MINT 

Centre for Good Governance's insight:

Go and visit government schools and you will realize how false the popular narrative of most of them being shoddy is

            Photo: MintHe is an imposing presence, the kind that will immediately put the lid on anyone’s road rage, even in Delhi. The white crown of hair on his head reinforces the intensity of his eyes. It’s almost as though he is continually glaring. Our exchange of pleasantries in his office was much shorter than the usual. He wanted to move to the classes.The March sun was also glaring on the sand dunes. Out of the sun, the shade was still pleasant. He took us to grade 2 which was sitting in the verandah on the floor. There were about 15 kids. There was no preamble, he stooped just a bit, and threw the words at the kids “yeBangalore se aaye hain”. His presence, his voice and his eyes, all told me that the kids will now wilt.The smallest girl in the group pounced up, eyes dancing from him to me. She screamed, “He has come from Bangalore.” He said, “wo aadmi sadak pe khadaa hai.” A boy responded, “that man is standing on the road.” He said, “wo ek gaay hai.” Another kid, “that is a cow.” This rapid fire continued between them. There was not the slightest change in his demeanour. The kids loved it; they were competing to respond. After witnessing this for 10 minutes, it was quite clear that the kids understood English, it was not some parrot-speak of rote memorized phrases.This was the government Upper Primary School in Hardoni-Meghwalon-Ki-Dhani; on thorny sand dunes, 50 km from Barmer in Rajasthan. Shyam Lal Sharma is his name. He is the head teacher of the school. There are 139 children in the school, which has five teachers. It’s a nice, neat building, with a walled, naturally sand filled, one acre playground. This seems to be quite the norm for government schools in Rajasthan, pleasant and spacious, especially in western Rajasthan.The location of the school is such that over 80% children are from the most disadvantaged communities, the other 20% only relatively less so. Outside the tourist settings of the desert, if you venture out it’s hard to figure out how (and why) people live in those conditions. But they do, with an equanimity which perhaps only living with an eternal natural foe can bring, and whom you befriend.A math class for grade 4 was in progress. Chotu Lal Meghwal was the teacher, he is very young. They were working on fractions. Sharma observed silently for a minute, and then he wrote on the black board: 23 23/27 + 63 17/8 + 97 15/33.Even before he had finished writing, a boy had volunteered to go to the board and simplify the number. I sat with the kids on the floor. The boy went about it slowly and methodically, writing every step on the black board. There were three girls around me; two of them were engrossed in the problem. The third kept looking up at the pace of the boy, trying to beat him. All of them were clear about the steps, and reached the solution. The girl, who was competing, made an error in one addition in the end. I pointed that to her, she instantly realized her error and corrected it. They continued with other fractions as we walked out.The next room had grade 1. Even before Sharma said anything, the kids started making a racket. It was obvious that they liked him. He asked whether anyone wanted to say the pahadaa i.e. multiplication tables. The din only increased. Finally he had to point at a kid to start; he said he will do 23. I thought I had misheard him. But he started and finished the table of 23 up to 10, in one breath. The class was uncontrollable after that; they were all reciting tables, and each of their own choice. It ranged from 2 to 30, and it seemed like they were playing a super exciting game.The level of learning in the school (with genuine comprehension and understanding) in math and in English, which is a third language for the students, is quite something. The easy confidence, engagement and energy of the kids, makes it a fun and exciting place. It deals with every conceivable disadvantage that the children have, and overcomes them. It’s a good school.The key is of course Sharma. We chatted as we were leaving. He said he doesn’t want to take any promotion. That’s because as you grow in the system, you become distanced from children.That was the third good government school I visited in the dunes that day. I am sure there are some in your vicinity. Go and visit them, and you will realize how false the popular narrative of most government schools being shoddy and teachers being absent is. India’s school education is not in good shape, but if we continue to hold on to superficial narratives, we will not be able to find real solutions. http://www.livemint.com/Opinion/BNJ74lzGwOBdNPObvtCIrO/School-in-the-desert.html?facet=print
