NATIONAL DEFUNCT MGMNT AUTHORITY By Abhishek Bhalla & Bhuvan Bagga in New Delhi Fat cat members on panel enjoy perks of Union ministers Crisis management body did not meet between 2008 &2012 IT’S HEADQUARTERED in South Delhi’s plush Safdarjung Enclave. It holds press conferences about human tragedies in luxurious five- star hotels. The Prime Minister is its ex officio chairman, and its vice- chairman equals a Cabinet minister in status. Other members, mostly retired bureaucrats and police officers, can rub shoulders with ministers of state. Welcome to the National Disaster Management Authority ( NDMA). With its performance — or more accurately, the abysmal lack of it — in the rain- ravaged Himalayan state exposing its defunct status, the NDMA stands exposed for the great man- made tragedy it is. Its National Executive Committee has not met at all between 2008 and 2012. Seven years after it came into being, the authority doesn’t even have a working plan

Elderly turns sleuth to nab man who robbed his home

By Krishna Kumar in Mumbai BABA Ghatkar may look like just another senior citizen. But, the 69- year- old retired engineer is a man criminals ought to not mess with. Not one to take things lying down, Ghatkar beat the police in the pursuit of the man who robbed his house. On November 21 last year, notorious burglar Munna alias Salim Khan, with more than 100 cases against him in several states, broke into Ghatkar’s house while the latter was away, walking off with a kilo and a half of silver, some cash and his ATM card. While Ghatkar immediately reported the theft to the Worli police, he also began a probe of his own. His first breakthrough came when Munna used his card to withdraw ` 30,000 from an ATM in Vashi. Ghatkar alerted the police and with their help, got the bank to furnish CCTV footage from the ATM to identify the accused. “ The ATM card was stolen along with the document that had its PIN number,” Ghatkar explained. On a hunch that the burglar might be a histo

CBI unearths ` 40 cr scam in health scheme

By Piyush Srivastava in Lucknow A MULTI- CRORE scam has been unearthed in the Central Government Health Scheme ( CGHS), which is operational in 25 cities across the country. The CBI, which conducted a series of raids at offices and dispensaries across the country in connection with the scam, is estimating a swindle worth ` 40 crore in just five states — Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, Jharkhand, Madhya Pradesh and Maharashtra. CBI sources said ` 40 crore is only a conservative figure based on the documents seized in the raids being conducted since Wednesday. “ About ` 6 crore of the scheme money was embezzled in UP, ` 5 crore in Maharashtra, ` 4 crore in Bihar and ` 2 crore in Jharkhand. So far, it appears that the officers of CGHS siphoned off 60 per cent of the total funds granted by the Centre by awarding contracts to firms involved in supplying substandard medicines. A total ` 40 crore was misappropriated between 2011 and 2013,” a source in CGHS said. This CGHS promises

To (i). The Chief Executives of all Pension Paying Banks. (ii). The Chief General Manager, In-charge, Customer Service Department, Reserve Bank of India, Central Office, Mumbai. Sub.:  Delay in payment of pensionary benefits to the Ex-Servicemen.
