Governance can be defined as the rule of the rulers within a given set of rules. It us simply the activities of the government of the day. The citizens'role has undergone a change in recent times. They are now demanding services rather than merely seeking them. Following are the platforms which ensure citizens' participation in developmental process.
1. CIVIL SOCIETY - It acts as watchdog of government ploicies. It mobilises public opinion for or against a programme, policy of the government. It educates the citizens on their rights and keep the government informed about the impulse of the people.
2. RTI - post RTI the veil of secrecy over the functioning off government stands removed and citizens now have legal right to know about the manner in which public funds are spent and public decisions are taken.
3. E-GOVERNANCE - It implies application of electronic means for interaction between Government and citizens. It has reduced red tapism and simplified procedures. People can make online queries.
The time based service delivery system such as Right to service act of punjav has also ensured active citizen participation in developmental processes.
Recent initiative of TRAI of inviting suggestions of general public on the issue of Net neutrality and the consequent order in sync with the public opinion is a resounding example of citizen participation in government and developmentl processes.

Citizen charter initiative in india was started in 1997 but has not produced desired results. The reasons are not too far to seek.
1. The citizens' charter was looked upon as merely an exercise that was to be carried out because there was a direction from top.
2. Service providers in india are not familliar with the phillosphy, goals, and main features of citizens' charter.
3. The workforce lacks proper training and orientation.
4. Lack of adequate publicity
5. No funds specifically earmarked for promotion of citizens' charters
5. Awareness campaigns to educate the clients about citizens' charter were not conducted systematically.
We need to invoke a sense of urgency, motivation among staff and make public aware in order to make citizens' charter a success in india. A hollistic approach in the need of the hour.

Work culture type of environment people work in and the way they interact with each other and service sekers. Work culture in government organizations is percieved to be unresponsive and insensitive and is marked by
1. Indifferent attitude of employees and corrupt mindsets
2. Abuse of authority
3. Lack of accountability and transparency
4. Lack of punctuality
5. Time based rather than performance based career progressions
6. Red tapism
Officers percieve themselves as dispensing favours to citizens rather than serving them.
All these factors result in poor quality of service delivery and consequent citizen dissatisfaction. To make work culture oriented towards service delivery following steps must be taken
1. The cumbersome procedures must be simplified si as to reduce red tapism.
2. Constant monitoring and evaluation of work done.
3. Regular forums for citizens-government interactions, suggestion boxes, citizen feedbacks
4. Workshops, seminars, awareness programs for change in attitudes of government employees to make them sensitive to citizens' needs.
A responsive administration is sine que non for efficient and effective implementation of plans and policies of government and achieving target of good governance.

Now provisionally entry by then the court has to decide about the fence sitters in the cases filed by Jaiswal and others 55 candidates . On 1 st March Dev Kumar not alone to be allowed to for main. We all persons who had marked right choice to the question no 38 will also move. Like bandi chor episode. If court does not allow fence sitters we will become writters. So all border line people who had marked question 38 as bhet rakhna should make a group and we will swim and sink like Dev kumar. Question 38 wale border liner unite and fight.

CWP No.1737 of 2016
3. Even assuming that the correct answer is “Bhet Rakhana” and not “Andar Khate Sahee Jana” even then to the mind of this Court, it would not materially alter or effect the result of the selection as the mistake would be universal to all candidates and would not vitiate the result. It is not such a flaw as would invite intervention of the writ Court persuading it to issue either a writ of certiorari or mandamus to interdict the answer and hold up the selection process.
4. In any case and without going into an autopsy of the idiom [Muhavara]: “Dhaki Rijey Koi Na Bujhey” it is left open to the Punjab Public Service Commission which is an autonomous constitutional body regulated by its own wisdom to consider whether Question No.38 should or should not be deleted from the count of questions required to be answered to draw merit. This is only a suggestion of the Court and is not to be treated as a direction.
5. With these observations this court is of opinion that no interference is called for in this petition on the fate of a single question. The other two disputed questions at serial No 4 and 57 thrashed out in Court are of no significance nor would they impact the result of the selection or the result of the petition and broadly the answer key is sustainable as assigning the appropriate answers to the questions, which even Mr. Arora was unable to wriggle out from.
6. Accordingly, the petition stands disposed of without any directions as to interference in the selection process as to the issue raised which process is making headway towards the final recommendations on merits for appointment to Register B [direct recruitment] etc. as may be

We should humbly request Punjab Govt to amend rules to allow every candidate 6 chances and keeping CSAT paper only qualifying. Vagueness in CSAT Questions is leading to a lot of confusions. So,the best way out is CSAT only as qualifying paper and Six chances as per UPSC pattern.

Just a heads up to all of you, this is going to be a lengthy read, so be prepared.

I’ll divide this into the following three sections:

1. The issue of errors in answer keys and its resolution (question 10, 31, 39)
2. The seemingly disparate judgements in Arashjit and Dev Kumar case
3. Which group of candidates will get relief from the Court and the strategy they should follow to get their just dues

At the outset I would like to point it out that I do not favour any one advocate over the other. As I said earlier any senor advocate will be fine as long as you follow my strategy. My other aim in this exercise is to explain the finer legal points involved in these judgements so that only the people who are going to get legal relief file a writ while those who aren’t going to benefit avoid going on any quixotic quest that will only waste their money as well as the time of us all.

Ok, coming to the issues at hand

1. 1. The issue of errors in answer keys and its resolution

For the record, my answers to the questions are as follows:

Ques 10: D
Ques 31: D
Ques 39: A

Some people on the blog have raised objections to some other question as well and have asked about getting relief from the court for these putative errors. However, it will not help them. The fact of the matter is that the court cannot do anything as far as the answer keys are concerned and rightly so, as the court is an authority on legal matters as well as matters of logical application of the law, but it is not a subject expert.

This is rightly stated by Justice Sandhawalia in his judgement where he mentions:

“Reliance was placed upon the judgments of this Court in CWP-14946-2013 titled Sahil Soni Vs. Central Board of Secondary Education, decided on 13.08.2013, CWP-7570-2013 titled Gurmehtab Singh & others Vs. State of Haryana & others, decided on 30.04.2013 and CWP-13624-2013 titled Tarun Walia & others Vs. State of Punjab, decided on 13.03.2013, to hold out that once the matter had been referred to the subject experts, case cannot be filed and the Courts are not to go into the said issue and re-examine the same.”

The reasoning for this has already provided in the above paragraph. Hence the most that the court can do is to look in to procedure in the preparation of the answer keys and if finds any ambiguity in that, then only the court can act. And this is exactly what Justice Sandhawalia did

On an aside note, you can approach the court questioning the formation and credentials of the subject expert committee, but as I mentioned earlier that would be a foolhardy and quixotic quest and will waste the time of all.

2. The seemingly disparate judgements in Arashjit and Dev Kumar case
On the whole I found the judgement passed by Justice Sandhawalia to be much well-reasoned as well as on a sound legal footing. As he mentions:

“Thus, the legal issue which arises for consideration of this Court is that on account of the matter having been referred to the subject experts, which has opined against the petitioners, the jurisdiction of this court is restricted or can this Court examine the questions and the answer keys and come to the conclusion contrary to the one which has been found by the subject experts.”

“It is not disputed that the Court will not go into this issue until there is a mistake in the answer key which is apparent on the face of the record and that the petitioner is to be given the benefit of ambiguity since they would make the cut. If the Court does not do so, it would be failing in its duties in not exercising its jurisdiction ”

“For the said question, as per the original records, which were also called for since the Commission had itself placed on record photocopy of the opinion of the subject experts, even the subject experts themselves, firstly, had written 'a' and then, crossed it out and made corrections and made it 'd'. It is, thus, apparent that what the Court has opined and what the candidates are also suggesting that the correct answer is option 'a', the experts themselves were of the same opinion, though necessary corrections had been made, thereafter. In such circumstances, it is apparent that the benefit of question no.10 reproduced above has to be given to the petitioners.”

It is because of this ambiguity in the preparation of the answer key that the court has decided to give the benefit of the doubt to those who have marked ‘A’ as the answer in ques 10. It is important to note that the court has not changed the answer key from ‘D’ to ‘A’

In contrast to this, and with all due respect to Hon’ble Justice Raina, I found his judgement lacking in both legal foundation as well as logical reasoning. The logical flaws in that judgement are more important from the petitioner’s viewpoint and have already been listed by me in earlier postings on this blog so I’ll not replicate them here. Interested candidates can search for the previous postings.

The legal lacuna that I observed in his judgement flows from the following para:

“2. There was some doubt with respect to question No.38 which searched for an answer to one of the questions posed at the combined PCS and Allied Services examination to the effect: “Dhaki Rijey Koi Na Bujhey”. The correct answer according to the petitioner is Bhet Rakhana” but the Punjab Public Service Commission prefers the answer closer to be “Andar Khate Sahee Jana”. It may be recorded in this order that the petitioner's view point found favour in court by lawyers well versed with the Punjabi language when requested help by the Court.”

In my view, any important legal point of contention, should be resolved by an established procedure as illustrated by the judgement of Justice Sandhawalia and not in an ad-hoc manner as suggested above

3. Which group of candidates will get relief from the Court and the strategy they should follow to get their just dues

From the all of the above it is patently clear that the only question that is under the judicial scanner is Question No. 10. And the only category of petitioners who stand to gain are those who have marked ‘A’ as the answer in ques 10 and have score a maximum of 2.5 marks below the respective cutoffs of their categories, for e.g. 264 – 266 for the General Category and so on. For this group of candidates, I can assure a 100% success for being allowed to write the mains examination.

N.B.: On an aside note, the question arises why the Hon’ble Judge didn’t give a blanket relief to all the affected candidates? The Judge has listed the following reasons for this:

“However, this Court is also restricting the said benefit only to the petitioners, since none others had approached this Court for the said benefits and if the answer key has to be changed, then the other candidates would be adversely affected as some have given the correct answer as option 'd' and it would lead to unsettling the whole issue. Reliance can be placed upon the judgment in Kanpur University's case (supra) and in CWP-24869-2013 titled Sonia Rattan & another Vs. State of Punjab & others, decided on 07.09.2015, wherein also, the relief was only restricted to the persons who had approached this Court and the benefits were not to be given to other candidates.”

and

“In such circumstances, it is made clear that the relief is only to be restricted to the petitioners. The Commission shall give benefit of question no.10 to the petitioners only, as referred above, since there is an ambiguity apparently on the face of the record.”

Answer given= A, Right Answer= Option C
Please give suggestions on this:
Question no. 64 ( Paper 2 )

In a dinner Party, both fish and meat were served. Some took only fish and some took only meat. There were some Vegetarians who did not accept either. The rest accepted both fish and meat. Which of the following diagrams correctly reflects the situation?
a)
b)
c)
d)
Can’t draw diagrams, Please refer to question paper.

See mistakes in Option A answer. Please see the reasons:
1) If the bigger circle shows that they are taking food. But, the vegetarians are also included in that circle, which means that they are taking food too. Which is opposite to the statement which says- Some vegetarians who did not accept either?

2) On the other side, if it is believed that the bigger circle represents Dinner party. Then it shows that some are fish eaters, some meat eaters and some both. In addition to that there is another group of some Vegetarians. The mistake in this Diagram is this that it does not show who ate and who did not. As here we see that we have a group of Vegetarians who did not eat any.

Right Answer= Option C
In the given Venn Diagram, Option C qualifies more as an as answer. Reasons for it are as follows:

1) All food takers are at one place (In bigger circle). In which some are meat taker, some fish taker and some both.

2) And another circle for non food taker is given (which represents Vegetarians, who did not eat any food.

3) All circles on the page show that they all categories have been represented. Two inside the bigger circle and one outside.

If option C is wrong, please tell how, will pay attention in future.

Re: Consider this 261.50 or more score

Posted by Sarbat da Bhala., (2016-02-08 18:18:19) /122.173.196.19

why is this blog becoming abusive?
be humble people!
i have a genuine point for 261.5 or more marks whom have marked A(EXHIBITION ) AS their answer..

lets illustrate:: a person earlier was scoring 266.50 and had marked D as his/her option
Now after JUSTICE SANDHAWALIA judgement A is the answer ..
his effective score should be 264 and your effective score is also 264..
But he is taking Mains and you are just enjoying on this blog..

You can get your roll number if you fight for it..
as what i illustrated is nothing but simple maths.

MAIN REASON of ARGUE:Sandhawalia judgement nowhere mentions that we are keeping 2 answers of q.no.10,he has just corrected and gave the benefit..
so its an open ended judgement which can be fought for..
but you need a very very experienced advocate to convince judge regarding this,,
moreover this same happened in CWP 25413 OF 2012. whererin 67 new people were admitted ..

Do you think that we are happy with the delay? Are we responsible for the delay? We got to know at the same time as everyone one else that the answer key for ques 10 is wrong after the judgements came and 8 petitioners have been allowed.

in view of this we are filing the writ. If this causes any delay it is because of the chootiyapa of PPSC and its "experts" who gave the wrong answer.

The 2013 writ in the Supreme Court is to be heard on the 8th February, te tu hunne khaarij kar ditti. Balle tere, I think you are an even higher authority than the Chief Justice of India.

Anyway there is no comparison between the 2013 writ in the SC and our writ.

In our case there are 8 people who marked A just as us and are now going to be allowed for the mains. I have 264 marks and also marked A, so why should I be denied the same right.

Tu chup ho ke beh ja bai te saanu salahan na de. Better prepare for your mains.

I think you scored 266.5 and marked D that is why you are afraid.

Re: No more writs

Posted by Genuine thoughts , (2016-02-08 14:06:17) /107.167.108.183

Guys be conscious. On this page agents of lawers are convincing u for writs. Today SC rejected SLP in pcs-2013 case. At the end who suffered in time nd money were aspirants and who gained were lawyers.
So don't be emotional, even if u get chance to write mains in pcs- 2015 by filing writs, you will not be in final selected list for sure!
Check history of writs in case of civil service recruitment process, you will find my words true nd sacrosanct. So don't waste the hard earned money of ur parents. Already, the most of civil services aspirants are not helping their families in financial matters. By filing writs you can at max generate false hopes in ur nd parents' minds but when at end some one losses ( like list-2 candidates who wasted a big amount of money) it's very hard to control situation.

Instead of wasting time, prepare for IAS-2016.
May god bless u all with success in that.
Thanks alot.
