20 Joint Secretaries in Union Ministry of Home Affairs  have been delegated  substantial financial and administrative powers in matters of executing works , land purchases upto Rs 50 crores, full powers incurring administrative expenses, hiring accommodation, TA, LTC and related cases in the ministry.

A prudent step to responsibilise the army of JSs in MHA.

The decision must be replicated in all union ministries.

An effective mechanism of checks and balances by way of submitting monthly returns to respective Financial Advisors and union Secretaries must be evolved.

Now is the time to abolish posts of Special Secretaries and Addl Secretaries in GOI in a phased manner as these would become redundant.

This will result in huge savings in expenditure from public exchequer.

Let the State governments follow suit.

Give a good buy to top heavy structure of bureaucracy at the Centre and the States.

The next time I read a blog, I hope that it doesnt disappoint me as much as this one. I mean, I know it was my choice to read, but I actually thought youd have something interesting to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about something that you could fix if you werent too busy looking for attention.
