The Army is seriously doing its bit to help the government cut costs. After a recently held meeting, Army Chief General Bikram Singh passed orders that the use of video conferencing and IT tools should be enhanced to save costs. Starting from the top, the directive is that all Army Commanders should reduce travel and use video conferencing to hold meetings with officials in Army HQ. Not only that, all the Director Generals of the various departments as well as the Personal Staff Officers at Army HQ will be required to submit a monthly report, listing out the number of times IT tools were used to interact with Army Commanders, driving home the point that the rule would be enforced.
THE Railway Ministry has detected several instances of forged signatures of MPs in requests for reservations made on what appears to be the official letterheads of the parliamentarians. Latest to join the list are a few requests from actor-turned MP Raj Babbar, whose signature appeared to be photocopied impressions on all the four requests made on his letterhead. A few requests from MP Ananta Venkatarami Reddy's letterhead were also found to have the signatures colour-scanned to look like originals. Bansal is now planning to write letters to all MPs cautioning them about this practice.
