The decentralisation of administrative units under Revenue and Panchayat Raj Departments for good governance is the avowed policy of the Congress party. However, the diabolically opposite stand taken by it regarding formation of smaller States is an unjustifiable act. The party has been playing hide and seek with the sentiments of the people by not conceding to their demands regarding the bifurcation of the State.



Efforts appreciated

It gave great pleasure to the readers of the The Hindu that it bagged two awards from the State government. Photographer P.V. Siva Kumar and Warangal staffer G. Srinivas Rao are the winners of the awards. Most of the photographs of The Hindu are classic and natural unlike those in other newspapers. Hope the newspaper gets more awards.

Pensioners’ woes

Why do the banks insist on producing life certificates in a prescribed form certifying the existence of the individual to draw the monthly pension when the pensioner is en-cashing the cheque with the latest photograph affixed to the passbook for easy verification. This system should be dispensed with, as it is an ordeal to get the certificate signed by a gazetted officer.
