Bansi Lal BalwalThis refers to news item September 12, 2020 published in State Times in which Hon,ble Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha launched the Jammu & Kashmir Integrated Grievance Redress & Monitoring system ( JK- I-GRAMS ). The Revamped system shall decentralise the handling & redressal of public grievances by making District Collector/ Deputy Commissioners as the primary level of receiving, disposing & monitoring grievances & as such the existing Portal has now been integrated to downward to the District level & prime focus would be on quality of the reply. In this connection I would like to say that up to this time I have filed 197 complains/ on different subjects of public interest which were disposed / diluted by the concerned without redressal of even single grievance and also refer my complain No. 999001326965 dated 4/3/20 which clears whole position copy endorsed to the Lt. governor through E- mail on this date & only for example refer my 52 complains starting with complain No. 5423 dated 19/10/09 in regard to encroachment of 2 feet wide road on ground of Housing Colony in front of my residence & other violations including keeping of 2 shutters of shops , gate, raising gallery of 2.6 feet wide which is also encroachment in the air including other violations such as windows, ventilators, staircase etc. by one Sh. Jagdish Kumar through his illegal /unauthorized double story commercial structure as colony is meant purely for residential purpose & many other illegal commercial multi story structures built at such an important place on National Highway after August 2014 from where District Administration passes twice a day while going to office & back to residence & the Municipal council Udhampur in whose limit this area from Khasra No. 605 to 622 falls shut its eyes & instead facilitated all this for some pecuniary benefits & this shows how much love all the concerned in this behalf have with the defaulter that is why are determined to protect the guilty at any cost. These new said Kh. No. have been illegally converted form old Kh. No. 55, 93 and 97 for some consideration by the revenue Deptt. to make undue claim of beneficiaries’ on Housing Colony Road regarding which I have filed 9 complaints starting with complaint No. 59931 dt. 29-4-2016 but this Deptt. has no reply to justify all this done in the year 2007-2008 during settlement of land and my latest complaint No. 999001336076 dt. 10-3-2020 is still there. Another example is with regard to development works initiated in Udhampur town by the then DC Sh. Shahid Iqbal Chowdery as given in my write up published in State Times January 8,2018 & March 30, 2020 but this said DC belonging to J&K UT most professional & committed officer was unfortunately transferred prematurely or get done so by vested interest and his successors who were duty bound to push forward these works did nothing although I filed complain 64224,74735,75585,77396,999000835958,999000997189 to Govt. Grievance cell including numerous RTIs in the matter but of no affect.In view of these facts it is very clear that when Govt. itself failed to redress the grievances of commoner then what better is expected from lower level as this all depends on one’s aptitude who from the core of heart has spirit to serve the people without discrimination on any basis which unfortunately is not there anywhere because of rampart corruption as all from top to bottom are busy in collection of commission & corruption & only remedy is to eradicate inefficient & corrupt from the top & this way no one at the lower level will dare to indulge in corrupt practices thereby cleaning the whole administration to serve all peoples.
