October 7 2014 3:22 am Although at face value the rules seem fairly rational the detailed explanation of each process is so convoluted that no officer would ever be able to understand much less implement them without some handholding ( Source PTI ) Related News It isgood that Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s penchant for clean surroundings has been taken seriously But it will take a lot more for the government’s Augean stables to be cleaned Here is why Not very long ago (in 2010 to be precise) I was in Delhi’s just-renovated Sarojini Nagar public library A well-maintained lawn gleaming windows glistening floor tiles cool air gliding from noise-free air conditioners were welcome additions to a building lined with books The library was chock-full of readers so I took the lift to the top floor which I expected would be empty It was in a manner of speaking My impression of the great transformation that I had seen in the floors below was instantly ruined Prime space had been used to store not library books but scores of rusted fan fittings which had probably been dismantled in the prelude to the renovation I was told without any embarrassment that these were the fans which had been installed when the building was first constructed in 1985 They were now waiting — and had been for over two years — for a three-person condemnation board to meet to certify their irretrievability “So let it be written so let it be done” The administrative officer of the library was confident that he had selected the most economical warehousing facility to store the 25-year-old fans Far from having done anything wrong he had simply followed the General Financial Rules 2005 (GFRs) The GFRs are sacrosanct and officials must ensure strict compliance Failure to do so could invite a sharp rap on the knuckles from the comptroller and auditor general This could be accompanied by the insinuation that there was negligence or worse that there was financial misconduct Given these possible consequences who on earth would want to stick her neck out to dispose of the government’s junk But more importantly who can remove this yoke from government servants Only the originator of the rules: the ministry of finance From the point of view of a clean-up drive of the 250-odd rules (they originated in 1963 and have been regularly updated since then) perhaps Rules 192 to 200 need to be overhauled first These are the rules that require the approval of a condemnation board (sometimes called a committee) prior to the disposal of government waste — equipment furniture raddi etc — beyond a certain value Every government office — Central or state autonomous attached or subordinate — must follow the GFRs Although at face value the rules seem fairly rational the detailed explanation of each process is so convoluted that no officer would ever be able to understand much less implement them without some handholding Take for instance the condemnation of government vehicles an epic saga thanks to the GFRs Junking a vehicle unless it is at least six and a half years old (10 according to some versions of the rules) or has at least 150000 km of mileage whichever is more is prohibited Since this conundrum can never be resolved old government vehicles are usually allowed to rust in peace until a death certificate can be obtained from a superior condemnation board The obvious solution would be to dispense with staff cars altogether — except for those used by individuals who need security — and replace them with outsourced transport services The need to first buy new vehicles and then fit them with the driver’s choice of plastic fan lace curtains macho-looking chrome fenders and never-to-be-used flagpoles would cease automatically To say nothing of maintaining a fleet of vehicles whose annual upkeep often exceeds the value of the vehicles themselves More than the lal batti mindset it is the culture of being driven around in a sarkari car that needs to change This way it will But back to the GFRs Much has been said about repealing antiquated laws; rightly so But more than changing statutes many of which have never been used or invoked there is a pressing need to change the GFRs Particularly those relating to the disposal of government junk Because of the way in which they have been written they actually shield officers from having to take responsibility and encourage the committee culture which contributes to delays in decision-making A new government can call the shots for a few months — until the bureaucracy becomes complacent again All that is needed is for it to be immediately specified that every divisional head of a ministry department or organisation would be responsible — by name — for ensuring that the unserviceable items belonging to her division are disposed of every two months This could be done by inviting online quotations and handing the accumulated junk over to the rubbish collector who bids the highest It is highly unlikely that any officer of the rank of a deputy secretary or lieutenant colonel would put her neck on the line in order to make a deal with kabadis Public watchdogs and RTI sleuths can of course access all the relevant documentation if they suspect hanky panky Making junk disposal time-bound and pinpointing responsibility would ensure cleanliness and additionally accountability Before long an impact would be felt in every government office across the country The Union finance ministry and state finance departments need to revisit this subject At stake is valuable space which could get freed up and of course clean surroundings The writer is a former secretary to the government of India and former chief secretary Delhi [email protected] For all the latest Opinion News download
