An Example
In Jan. 2008, as the Secretary of the Happy
Homes Housing Palace 'A' Flat Owners Association, not
satisfied with the explanation given by the Asst. Town
Planning Officer of GHMC Rajendranagar, Circle 6, I
questioned the issuance of notices to the flat owners
for regularisation of flats, instead of issuing the same to
the builder. The builder, earlier, had admitted in the RR
Dist court that there are deviations and ready to
regularise if the officials of the Rajendranagar allow him
to pay the applicable fees. The Rajendranagar circle
having won the case in the year 2006 and having the
power to penalise the builder, made, instead, the
resident-owners file the BPS application.
Regarding the indifferent attitude of the Town
Planning officials of the Rajendranagar Circle, I wrote
to the Appellate Committee for BPS. The Municipal
Administration department issued a Memo No. 13745/
M2/2008 on 29/8/2008 to the Commissioner, GHMC,
Tank Bund, Hyderabad to take necessary immediate
action, with a copy to the complainant.
Having not heard anything from the
Commissioner's office, I sent an e-mail on 9/10/2008
and 21/11/2008 reminding about the Memo. Again, I
wrote letter on 12/6/2009 and 11/8/2009. As there was
no information related to the Memo, I was forced to
use RTI act.
On Jan. 25, 2010, I sent an RTI application to
the Chief Public Information Officer, GHMC, on the status
of the memo and action taken. The CPIO forwarded
the letter to the Chief City Planner HO on 30/1/2010.
The Chief City Planner GHMC HO, issued a Most Urgent
letter - U. O. Note. No. R/75/RTI/CCP/SZ/GHMC/2010/
427 dt: 15/2/2010 to the Town Planning Officer, GHMC
Rajendranagar Circle 6 to provide the information
immediately. The Copy of the same I received it on 15/
3/2010.
Secondly, there is a President of India
Secretariat Helpline as well as DARPG (Department of
Public Grievances). For a complaint online, you should
get reference number and person to contact. But, the
officials never replied. There is no response to my
complaints DARPG/E/2008/0354, 31/5/2008 forwarded
to the Principal Secretary GAD, GovtoAP.

CASTE AND CENSUS :
A letter addressed to the Prime Minister, Union
Law minister, Home minister, and to the leader of the
Opposition in Parliament by Dr. Mamatosh Mandal on
behalf of Hum Sab Hindustani Trust and other civil
organizations on 28/12/09. Some excerpts:
Dear Sir,
Proposal to not to take up Caste enumeration in
Census of 2011.
1. Context: Identification of backward classes in
Hindu society other than SCs and STs or Other
Backward Classes ( OBCs) - As per a judgment of the
Supreme Court in the Indra Sawhney case , caste should
be the starting point in Hindu society for identifying
socially and educationally backward groups or Other
Backward Classes ( OBCs) . Once such groups have
been identified, the creamy layer there from should be
excluded and the residual section is termed as OBCs.
So, caste is the starting point, but not the determining
point for identifying OBCs. The exercise of identifying
BCs is so far done except in a few cases in the beginning
by State Government appointed B.C. Commissions,
as the relationship between designated castes and
social and educational backwardness varies widely from
state to state, region to region and even within different
parts of a state.
The rationale behind relating backwardness to
caste in Hindu society is that castes used to form some
occupational groups, which are often hereditary and
that these occupations were considered low in social
tatus.
In the case of the non-Hindu society, where, there
is no recognized caste system, occupation, place of
residence are considered for determiningOBCs after
eliminating from such groups the creamy layer.
So, the underlying definition of backwardness is
the same, only the methods of capturing the same are
different in Hindu and non-Hindu societies.
2. Caste as an indicator of Social and Educational
Backwardness in Hindu society i s pr ogr e s s i v e l y
ceasing to be valid for the following reasons :
There is more mobility of occupation across
castes and the professions are not confined to some
castes alone - many Brahmins work in shoe companies,
and yet do not face any social stigma. Traditionally
priests, particularly their children, no longer live on
priesthood alone but pursue other occupations also.
Thus many factors are removing the link between aste
and occupation. As an effort toward social progress
and elimination of caste system, which is our ultimate
aim, we should encourage forces in this direction and
not restore the mind set which discriminates on the
basis of caste, which a caste-based census will
generate. On the contrary, extending caste enumeration
in census with the avowed objective of more properly
targeting reservation to cover more and more or less
and less groups on grounds of caste affiliation will not
correct socio-economic imbalances or meet the ends
of social justice.
3. Further, the wide diversity in the relation between
caste and occupation-cum social status across states /
regions makes purposeless any attempt to discover
such link valid for the entire country, through a
centralized census;
For example, the Nonias, a caste found in several
districts of U.P. are traditionally supposed to have been
salt-makers but now most of them are poor agriculturists
or engaged in making bricks, tiles, etc. However, some
of them have become quite prosperous as contractors
making roads, bridges, etc. They have gained
recognition as Nonia Chauhans (Rajputs). But the
majority of the Nonias are still low-caste. What the
Census would do in such cases? Would they be treated
as two castes or would there be a reversal for claiming
benefits of reservation?
4. Caste-based discrimination requires decentralized
study, for which a mechanism already exists through
state B.C. commissions. Why then go again for a
centralized mechanism? The present system should
continue. On the contrary, if notwithstanding such
variations from place to place, mere caste enumeration
is included in a centralized census, without
understanding the real ground material situation, mere
number counting will lead to incorrect / irrational
pressure for or against a particular caste(s).
In this connexion, it will not be irrelevant to quote
paragraph 25 of the Muslims Minorities reservation
Judgment dated 21.9.04 of the A.P. State Government:
"25. The Central Government ultimately took a
decision that no all Indialist of backward classes
should be drawn up, nor any reservation be made in
the Central Government Service for any group of
backward classes other than the Scheduled Castes and
Scheduled Tribes. Consequently, on 14th August, 1961,
the Ministry of Home Affairs addressed all the State
Governments stating, "While the State Governments
have the discretion to choose their own criteria for
defining backwardness, in the view of theGovernment
of India it would be better to apply economic tests
than to go by caste." Regarding the preparation of
backward classes list, it was observed, "even if the
Central Government were to specify under Article 338(3)
certain groups of people as belonging to other
backward classes', it will still be open to every State
Government to draw up its own lists for the purposes of
Articles 15 and 16. As, therefore, the State Governments
may adhere to their own lists, any all-India list drawn
up by the Central Government would have no practical
utility".
5. As of now, the Census format ( Census of India 2001
- Household
5 Tarnaka Times, June - 2010
Schedule, Appendix -IA and B contain columns
which can measure the material status of a household.
To measure such status, there is no need to introduce
a column for 'caste'.
On the contrary, the negative effects, contrary
to our desire for a caste-less society, are becoming
prominent by the day. (a) Caste is becoming an
instrument for perpetuation of certain privileges in
groups once recognized as backward. De-reservation
of groups after improvement is difficult to practice and
caste-based politics emerges. (b) Intra group, certain
'creamy layer' groups are monopolizing privileges to
the exclusion of less privileged groups or alternatively,
the pressure to increase the extent of reservation beyond
50% increases, which is opposed to Ambedkar's
concept of reservation for 'minority' ( Ambedkar, Volume
. pp 391 to 394, particularly, the observation in p 393
that " if the reservation is to be consistent with sub-
clause (1) of Article 10 " - now Art 16(1) re equality of
opportunity - "must be confined to a minority of seats").
(c)The conflict among 'higher' and 'lower' caste is being
accentuated; there is increasingly a sense of deprivation
among the less economically privileged upper caste
groups; for having same living conditions, why should
upper caste groups should be discriminated?; (d) if the
quota for reservation increases, where is the space for
merit-based candidates? This is a threat to India's
competitive ability in a globalized and globalizing world
from which no country has an escape.
Conclusion and recommendations :
1. Prima facie, the suggestion to include caste in
the categories to be enumerated in the forthcoming
Census may appear simple and straight forward in
view of the need for authentic data for implementing
the existing reservations for sociallyand educationally
backward classes in the context of the judicial
pronouncements. But, in fact it is not simple and
straight forward. It is good and necessary to recall the
two goals set by the founding fathers of our Republic.
They are (a) to promote and evolve as soon as possible
a society of equal citizens without caste inequalities
and with certain fundamental rights and duties; and (b)
to uplift for this purpose the weaker sections such as
backward classes, SCs and STs.Both goals are
important. It, therefore, appears necessary that nothing
is done for attaining the second goal does, in practice,
lead to frustrate the efforts for achieving the first goal.
A trend is noticed toward merging similar castes to form
a more powerful and numerically strong caste group in
order tohave a greater say in politics. For example,
Gwala,
Ahir, Gopa, Sadgopa and Ghasis are separate
castes in the sense that there is no intermarriage among
them. But now all of them call themselves as belonging
to the Yadav caste and have formed the All-India Yadav
Mahasabha.
Similarly Awadhias of Patna, the Dhanuks of north
Bihar and the Mahtos of Chota Nagpur are distinct
castes. But for political reasons they have come together
to form the large caste of 'Kurmi'. Caste is a very complex
phenomenon and our view is that caste enumeration
would only aggravate the 'politicization of caste', using
the words of Rajani Kothari.
If thus the reservation policy for OBCs is already
leading to enhance caste consciousness and
proliferation of castes and sub-castes, the goal of
casteless society will be put in jeopardy. That is why
the A.P. High Court has suggested in the Muslim
reservation case that emphasis needs to be shifted to
occupation and livelihoods. When the then government
refused to include caste in 1951 census it was felt that it
was inspired by the first goal identified earlier. This
brings us to the question how to know the number of
backward classes.
2. We, therefore, suggest measuring group
backwardness in Hindu society on basis of occupation,
income, residence, education level, etc, as in the case
of non-Hindu groups. For example, the following groups
may be considered as S & E backward if they follow
the following occupations :
(a) in agriculture, landless workers, small farmers and
marginal farmers.
(b) those engaged in traditional arts and crafts like
barber, dhobi, carpenter etc.
(c) those engaged in similar occupations as in (b)
with use of power and methods of producti on
and with income twice or thrice or any other times
of BPL income;
(d) those who have had no higher education in two
or three generations.
These categories may be defined further through
discussion with experts. Such enumeration will be
entirely legitimate and will enable the executive t o
understand the state of the population and help in
attaining both goals.
3. Simultaneously, Parliament may consider
legislation prohibiting caste surnames as done by Ata
Turk in Turkey immediately after the first world war.
4. Improve and refine present mechanisms of state
B.C, Commissions.
5. While the present provisions for enumeration of
S.Cs as per a Presidential Order ( art 330, 332) should
continue, we should not go for caste-based censusfor
OBCs, as this will be a step in the reverse direction of
eliminating caste discrimination.
6. Introduce Equal Opportunity Commission.
Yours Faithfully, ( M.Mandal),
Managing Trustee.

the Chief Electoral Officer for A.P., in the presence of
Shri. Sampath, the Central Election Commissioner and
Shri. Lyngdoh, the former Chief Election Commissioner
in a function held at Jubilee Hall, Public Garden ,
Hyderabad on 7th June,2010. On the occasion of
the Diamond jubilee year of the Central Election
Commission, the RWAs have committed to strive to
make the electoral list in GHMC area 100 % complete

A Dream For Ever ?
A dream project for Yerrakunta lake in Tarnaka
which could not, so far, be realized, is proposed to
serve as a model to inspire others to the attention of
the newly emerged Campaign for "Save Our Urban
Lakes (SOUL)", launched by Jasween Jairath, Umesh
Varma and others. Sri. B.P. Acharya, IAS, Vice-
Chairman, HMDA has whole-heartedly endorsed it.
The Concept of Uban Community Lake &
Appropriate Strategies
1. A local Monitoring Committee (M.C.) for each
ward consisting of senior citizens, school
teachers, youth, washermen, fishermen and
RWAs, etc. to get registered;
2. SOUL members, environmental NGOs, retired
policemen, lawyers from outside to join the M.C.
so as to increase the capacity to resist the
pressures from the present and future
encroachers;
3. To identify or de-limit or demark only one to two
hectares to claim for the community lake,
whereas, usually, the entire FTL area would be
under dispute, court litigation, etc.; Since the
catchment areas are greatly reduced, bigger
lakes cannot be filled with enough rain water or
nala water;
4. To get a model attractive community lake to be
designed by the architects, as a brochure with
indications of the services for the local
community;
5. After taking possession as a joint project with
either the Revenue dept, R & B. or GHMC or
HMDA, to undertake community participation or
shramdaan with local Mahila mandali, other
women, NSS or NCC for de-silting or dredging
and bunding;
6. Ensuring the inflow of cleaned water from the
nalas or the neighbouring water bodies and
outflow facilities; preventing sewage water or
ensuring the small scale sewage water treatment
plants (STP) or recycling the used water; or
digging high power bores;
7. To define and describe the community lake as a
multi-service centre for the ward, the basin
providing for bathing, swimming facilities, fishing
or reserved acquarium, washing facilities,
boating, eating facilities; the bund providing trees
and plants, track for jogging or walking or yoga
and benches for the senior citizens reading and
the green belt for harboring flora and fauna;
8. To make it economically self-sustaining in the
