Hon Madams & Sirs,

CITIZENS' GRIEVANCE REDRESSAL BILL & WHISTLEBLOWERS' PROTECTION BILL:
PASS IN CURRENT PARLIAMENT SESSION ITSELF !

India is witnessing a very positive tone for corruption-free,citizen participatory,efficient public service delivery system and Good Governance after the notable impact of RTI.

The Passing of Lokpal bill another evidence in the process.

It is heartening that most of the major political parties have realised the importance of empowering citizenary.

Madams & Sirs, two of Most Important bills in this regard, which can certainly prove to be Game Changers in strengthening & maturing Indian  Democracy are Pending in the house.

We, the following signatories representing major activists from Pune & Pimpri Chinchwad metro cities earnestly request and demand that Citizens' Grievance Redressal & Whistleblowers' Protection Bills be passed in Current Session only.

In case, these are not passed in current session, it will be a missed opportunity with irrepairable loss to 125 crores citizens of India, since the pending bills will lapse with dissolution of current parliament.

Hon Madams & Hon Sirs please ensure that Citizens' Grievance Redressal Bill & Whistleblowers' Protection Bill are Passed in Current Session itself !

125 crores citizens of India will have new ray of hope that their leaders, irrespective party, care for common man's interest and welfare.

CITIZENS' GRIEVANCE REDRESSAL BILL & WHISTLEBLOWERS' PROTECTION BILL:
PASS IN CURRENT PARLIAMENT SESSION ITSELF !

Awaiting prompt positive action,

Make filing of affidavits on-line compulsory for candidates

Dear All,

We fully endorse the Demand made by MADHU GUINNESS to ELECTION COMMISSION for Make filing of affidavits on-line compulsory for candidates for GENERAL ELECTIONS OF LOKSABHA 2014.

This will make the Elections more transparent and Strengthen Democracy. Hence it MUST be made MANDATORY for all ELECTION CANDIDATES for Loksabha in first phase and extended in due course to ALL ELECTIONS , ALL OVER INDIA .

Make filing of affidavits on-line compulsory for candidates



It refers to compulsory filing of affidavits by candidates contesting elections regarding their assets and criminal records etc. But it takes time and spent of man-hours in getting these affidavits scanned and uploaded on website by Election Commission. It should be made compulsory to file these affidavits on-line by the candidates before a signed copy of such affidavits are filed before Election Officers. It should neither be difficult nor costly in present era of advanced Internet-system. Rather Election Commission should on its website incorporate an user-friendly portal where necessary details may be filled up and submitted giving a registration-number. Such on-line affidavits with incomplete data may be rejected. System will automatically take care of the aspect of many candidates fulfilling formality of filing such affidavits without complete details instead writing 'Nil' or 'Not Applicable (NA)' etc. Election Officers should not accept such affidavits where data is hided by writing words like 'NIL', Not Applicable (NA)' etc.



There can be no practical system for Election Commission to verify correctness of each of large number of affidavits filed by so many candidates contesting elections. But system should be to cancel election of elected representatives where complaints filed against their filing wrong and incorrect affidavits are found true.
