Empty chairs at ministries irk Naidu
Union minister Venkaiah Naidu conducted a surprise check of his Urban Development and Housing and Urban Poverty Alleviation ministries located at Nirman Bhavan on Monday, and found many officials and employees absent. Naidu instructed senior officials to immediately install a biometric attendance system in the ministries which report to him. This was the second surprise check at the said ministries by Naidu, who has been focusing on the need for punctuality. On finding many empty chairs, the urban development minister ordered that the names of missing officials and employees be noted and an explanation be called from them for absenteeism. He was accompanied by Secretary (Urban Development) Shankar Aggarwal. Naidu wanted joint secretaries of the ministries to visit their respective offices every day for a week to monitor the attendance and find the "chronic offenders". Tough measures Attendance registers would be removed 15 minutes after "the due time of reporting" and latecomers would be marked absent while also facing a day's salary cut. A few weeks ago, Information and Broadcasting Minister Prakash Javadekar asked nearly 40 people in his department to apply for casual leave because they were not at work on time on a Monday morning. Sources close to Naidu said the effort was to enforce Prime Minister Narendra Modis directive to prioritise efficiency by reducing delays and cutting red tape. Bureaucrats have been ordered to focus on swift disposal of files.
Venkaiah Naidu surprise check turns shocker
Union minister Venkaiah Naidu on Monday conducted his second surprise visit to check punctuality of officials in his departments during which names of about 80 errant officials were noted down. The surprise check at Nirman Bhavan is also understood to have prompted the enforcement of a bio-metric attendance system. An official statement said a bio-metric attendance system will soon be installed to mark attendance in these ministries. Sources stated that the minister took a serious view of the tendency of absenteeism and coming late for work among the employees. The minister is learnt to have noted that cleanliness and maintenance at the Nirman Bhavan has improved since his last inspection on June 12. Starting at 9.10 am, the Union minister went around for an hour on various floors of the Nirman Bhavan, where the offices of the ministries of urban development and housing and urban poverty alleviation (HUPA) are located. The minister noted that a large number of personnel, like section heads and supporting staff, did not report for work on time. UD ministry officials said that nearly 80 names of employees who were late have been noted down. During the inspection, the minister was accompanied by Shankar Aggarwal, secretary (urban development) and other senior officials of both the ministries. Following the inspection, the minister issued directions as per which joint secretaries of the two ministries shall visit their respective offices to monitor attendance and find out about repeat offenders. Naidu also directed that necessary and immediate action be taken against those who report late for work. Attendance registers are to be withdrawn 15 minutes after the due time of reporting and late-comers are to be marked absent for the day and not paid for the same. Sources stated that Aggarwal assured Naidu that punctuality would be enforced in two weeks time.

Proteas hang on for a draw
South Africa reclaimed top spot in crickets Test rankings after grimly hanging on for a draw in the second and final Test against Sri Lanka on Monday to win the series 1-0. It was South Africas first series win under new captain Hashim Amla and only their second series victory in Sri Lanka in 21 years, and sees them overtake Australia as the worlds number one team. Set 369 for victory South Africa, who started the day at 38-1, finished on 159 for eight with Vernon Philander holding firm with an unbeaten 27. That was despite a marathon bowling effort from spinners Rangana Herath and Dilruwan Perera who sent down 89 overs between them, including 54 maidens, to claim all eight South African wickets. Sri Lanka had to fight not only against the strong defence put up by South Africa but also the weather that interrupted play three times during the day, including in the final session with South Africa on 118-6. However the sun came out strongly and Sri Lanka grabbed the wicket of JP Duminy in the first over of the final hour when Perera trapped him lbw for three. Herath picked up his 18th five wicket bag when he had Dale Steyn caught behind by Niroshan Dickwella for six. There was no further joy for the hosts, however, as Philander and Imran Tahir played out the remaining 27 minutes. Amla had led South Africas resistance when he scored a fighting 25 off 159 balls before falling to Perera in the fourth over after tea when he edged an attempted drive to Mahela Jayawardene. Herath also found the outside edge of Faf du Plessis bat on 10 to give Jayawardene his 200th test catch. Herath had also dismissed Quinton de Kock for 37 and AB de Villiers for 12 in the afternoon session, but the rain delays, which saw only 30 minutes play in the morning session, hindered Sri Lankas push to level the series. South Africa had lost the number one ranking to Australia in May.

DNA 32 minutes ago

The collegium system for appointment of judges has failed and it needs to be replaced, eminent jurists and former chief justices have told the government during consultations on the issue....
Legal eagles, ministers on one page, want SC collegium junked
A high-level meeting of top jurists, academics, ministers and former chief justices of India supported scrapping of the present SC collegium system of appointing judges.
Jurists want change in collegium system
Several top jurists on Monday pushed for scrapping the existing collegium system where judges appoint judges at the first round of consultation process on the proposed Judicial Appointments Comm-ission Bill, which seeks to scrap the collegium system for appointment of judges. However, the Narendra Modi governments plan to bring a bill to make the process of appointments more transparent may take some more time. Attorney-General of India Mukul Rohatgi said that at Mondays consultation the predominant view was that the collegium system needs to be changed. He said those present in the meeting gave their point-of-view as to whether the collegium system should remain or not, but the debate has not ended and further discussion on how exactly it will be changed and what should be the composition, will be discussed. He pointed towards a second round of consultations on the issue. Union law and justice minister Ravi Shankar Prasad said, There was a consensus for improvement and the need for making it (appointment of judges) more transparent. He, however, refused to state whether there was a consensus to scrap the collegium system, saying it will not be appropriate for him to make a public statement in this regard. Sources stated that the NDA government plans to bring the Judicial Appointments Commi-ssion Bill in the ongoing session of Parliament. On the agenda was also other reforms related to the judiciary, including the Judicial Standards and Accountability Bill, proposed under the UPA regime. Prominent among those who attended consultations included former chief justices A.M. Ahmadi and V.N. Khare. The government was represented by Mr Prasad and finance minister Arun Jaitley. Former attorney-general and Rajya Sabha MP K. Parasaran, lawyers Soli Sorabjee, Fali Nariman, K.T.S. Tulsi and K.K. Venugopal were among the senior jurists who attended the consultations. Mr Rohatgi and solicitor-general Ranjit Kumar were also present. The law minister had on July 21 said the government is seeking the views of various political parties and eminent jurists for setting up a Judicial Appointments Commission which would scrap the present system of judges appointing judges. The bill, prepared during the UPA-2 regime, is set to be revived after the allegations of Justice Markandey Katju (Retd.) stating that the Central government and three Chief Justices of India had colluded in appointing a tainted judge to the Madras high court.

Govt consults jurists for scrapping collegium system of judges' appointment
Seeking to scrap the collegium system for appointment of judges, the government today consulted former chief justices of India and top jurists on the proposed Judicial Appointments Commission bill. Also on the agenda today was other reforms related to the judiciary including the Judicial Standards and Accountability Bill which the previous UPA government had brought. Prominent among those who attended todays consultations included former chief justices A M Ahmadi and V N Khare. The government was represented by Law Minister Ravishankar Prasad and Finance Minister Arun Jaitley. Former Attorney General and Rajya Sabha MP K Parasaran and eminent lawyers Soli Sorabjee, Fali Nariman, K T S Tulsi and K K Venugopal were among the senior jurists who attended the consultations. Attorney General Mukul Rohatgi and Solicitor General Ranjit Kumar were also present. The Law Minister had on July 21 said the government is seeking the views of various political parties and eminent jurists for setting up a Judicial Appointments Commission which would scrap the present system of judges appointing judges. The NDA government is not averse to the previous UPA governments plan to put the composition and functions of the proposed Judicial Appointments Commission Bill in the Constitution, sources said. By giving the composition and functions of the proposed commission Constitutional status, UPA had sought to allay fears of the judiciary that the composition and functions can be tweaked by government. The practice of judges appointing judges started after 1993, replacing the system of government picking judges for higher judiciary comprising the Supreme Court and high courts. The move to set aside the 1993 Supreme Court judgement, which led to the collegium system, requires a constitutional amendment.
