PAGEI0 Wednesday August 09,2017 From Indian Express: [Topic- GSM-2:Role of civil services in a democracy.] New system for rating bureaucrats open to bias: Parliamentary Standing Committee Personnel, Public Grievances The government's new system of rating officers on the basis of a 360-degree approach is opaque and susceptible to bias, manipulation and lacks fairness, a parliamentary standing committee has said The 360-degree approach is a new multi-source feedback system for performance appraisal of bureaucrats started by the current government for future postings.The system seeks to look beyond the ratings received in appraisal reports written by their bosses. It relies on feedback of juniors and other colleagues for an all-round view.The government has been showcasing the 360-degree approach as one of its major administrative reforms. Why? The report mentions that most central posts of joint-secretary level and upwards go to IAS officers and adds that the majority of top posts should not go to any one service leaving others services out in the Central Staffing Scheme.Feedback received from subordinates and stakeholders could be biased or lack objectivity, particularly if the officer had to discipline his subordinates or he was unable to meet the unjustified demands of stakeholders. 360-degree approach does not have any statutory backing,or supported by any Act. The report also mentions the report of the Second Administrative Reforms Commission set up by the government to say that the multi-source feedback system was not suitable for India.

Page-7: Food security: SC raps Centre, States [8th August Hindu] . We can only feel sorry for the people of Haryana, the Supreme Court noted in a judgment on how the State Food Commission, set up under the National Food Security Act in Haryana, sits jobless and without proper infrastructure owing to the State government's lacklustre response to the four- year-old welfare legislation. The judgment by a Bench listed nine other States who came under its scanner for their damp response to the food security law meant to quell the hunger pangs of millions of poor families, women and children living below the poverty line. The Supreme Court said the Centre cannot look the other way, passing the buck on to the States for not implementing the law Referring to Article 256 of the Constitution, the judgment said the "Government of India cannot plead helplessness in requiring State Governments to implement parliamentary laws." Article 256 256. Obligation of States and the Union: The executive power of every State shall be so exercised as to ensure compliance with the laws made by Parliament and any existing laws which apply in that State, and the executive power of the Union shall extend to the giving of such directions to a State as may appear to the Government of India to be necessary for that purpose
