Honorable Sardar Manmohan Singh ji Vande Mantaram
As whistle blower I raised certain issues pertaining to misconducts, misinterpretation of rules, and misappropriation of precious tax payer’s money by directors of DRDO labs. As a result, as was expected the department gave me CRS and I in turn donated all my financial benefits to PM relief’s fund presuming that some sensitive officer in PMO will take note of this conditional donation and issued directives to Ministry of Defence (DRDO) for corrective measures. However in a country of 125 crores people when the corruption is touching all time high, we have left behind Romania this insensitiveness was not unusual.
I sought through RTI those scientists who are doing non scientific work in DRDO for years, how come the department has giving them special incentives as recommended by six pay commission for the scientific work. DRDO in turn replied that subject matter come under schedule-II and information denied.
Through RTI I sought the qualification of scientists F,G,H, Distinguished Scientist, Out Standing Scientist and how many international papers was published by them or any other significant contribution by them the reply given was same DRDO exempted in schedule-II of RTI Act 2005.
Showing such disrespect to Indian constitution and using certain decision of pay commission recommendation for personal benefits, ignoring certain decision which has been issued specially for them has become a practice.
It is very interesting to note that DoPT has issued fresh instructions as was given in news paper. Those scientists who are not doing scientific work and are engaged in admin, stores and allied work will not be given scientific incentives.
The news paper says six pay commission had recommended that for promotion from scientist E to further higher grade the essential requirement is to publication of scientific papers, patents, scientific invention and popper scientific contribution with 5 year field work experience with users.
It is my request to PMO is if pay commission recommendation were implemented in 2006 and people have availed the benefits. Extra money paid to ineligible scientists working as non scientific work like admin, stores and allied work should be recovered from them.
The news paper says that the scientists engaged in simple paper work and consuming 100 of crores rupees they are not delivering any product useful to the defence. Such scientific activity should banned, if certain items are available in international market then what is the use of investing 100 of crores, instead the Govt. can procure these items. As has been done in the case of Brahmos missiles which was procured on TOT (Technology Transfer) and today we are capable to sell it to the world market.
DRDO should work on these lines and take only those area where no super power spares the technology, like Cryogenic Engine, Generation of NON Nuclear EMP, Hardening of our own equipments against NEMP/NON NEMP (From 10 KHz – 5 GHz), Seizing & freezing the auto engine from a safe distance to counter fidayeen attack and at lat but not least Deep sea (400m-500m) submarine communication technology to strengthen of our Naval power.
With the passage of time DRDO scientist, administrators, directors of labs have become insensitive to the national cause and they are ignoring national security aspect. It is because there is no accountability; of course people are getting plus 1 lakh per month salary. The level of insensitiveness is such that the directors of DRDO labs do not see eye to eye, they do not have respect to each other, they do not support/exchange scientific information to each other. In fact for crucial national security aspect they bargain foreign trips even though his technical presence is not needed.
As you are aware that DRDO directors “bite more than they chew”. Only God or you can motivate them to do some useful work for the nation’s sake.
