Gazetted Officers…….. Bye – Bye….
Govt may drop Attestation for
documents by gazetted
officers ( Stamps Walo Aapke Din Gaye)
You may no longer need a Gazetted officer or a
magistrate to attest
documents sought by
Prime Minister Narendra Modi has asked his bureaucrats to
repeal all laws and rules which come in the way of effective Governance. In a meeting with secretaries on Wednesday, the PM
departments should adopt the system of self-attestation of
certificates, photographs and marksheets, instead of asking for Attested Documents or filing
of affidavits. He also told
officials all Government application forms should be made short and
simple by doing away with unnecessary fields.
“The prime minister said self attestation should be enough because
it is a hassle for the common man to get it attested from Gazetted officers. Anyway, the original documents are
required to be produced at the final selection… (Courtesy BS)..
10. Mr. Modi has passed an epic resolution:
Only Scientist and Technical associate will participate and attend the Scientist Conferences in India and Abroad….No Minister or Bureaucrat is allowed as a part of this delegations
This is land mark decision as almost 50% participants were non technical Ministers and their cronies….who did not understand a thing on the subject…..they just uses to enjoy travel and hospitality at Govt expense
For last 67 years nobody had time n inclination to change this as there was no vision…
