Comment - Acute scarcity of Electricity - Sector 7, Channi Himmat, Jammu

01:14 May 18 2011 Sector 7, Channi Himmat, Jammu

Dear Mam/Sir,

My name is Ajay, my residence is in Sector 7, Channi Himmat, Jammu.

I am forced to bring this in your kind notice that we are badly exhausted by the irregularties and fluctations we are encountring. There is no schedule of power cuts, anytime anywhere its uncertain. Fluctuation is awesome (it goes low up to 150 and up suddently up to 250).

Being a genuine citizens we always obeyed rules, always paid bills regularly and realized our duties towards our society (here i want to mention that a vast amount of people in Jammu don't have Electricity Meters in their house and they pay illegally. People have Air conditioners but they pay under the table and this is probably known to authorities also which is just shameful).
You please evaluate, is this justifiable that genuine people are being affected by culprits?

Mam/ Sir, i live outside this country, long time i left India as i work in UK. But believe me i haven't find much difference in so many years. I feel pity when compare ourselves and attitude of our people with the people live there. Can't we be a little bit genuine to our country to our own people? This is for the betterment of our own self, for our own children, isn't it?

Sir/mam, just feel this yourself that an ordinary person come back to home, whole day he has sustained lots of stress, workload, job pressures and he just want to relax in his home (which is his birthright i suppose) and suddenly he encounters with these problems, doesn't he feels that there is no ray of sunshine for him in his own home, in his own country.

With great hope i am putting this forward to you that my words will be taken seriously and some steps must be taken.

I agree entirely with the point rieasd by Costas. Among the two priorities rieasd it is the first one that needs the most urgent attention, that of refroming the judiciary. Without an efficiewnt court system all other reforms will become ineffective. The need for growth as a vehicle that would take Greece out of the current crisis is tautological. The debate about whether to remain or not in the euro zone is important, but it will remain academic unless there is a concerted effort (with the help of the EU in this case) to fight corruption. To do that most of the energy and effort has to be spent on reforming the judiciary. The rules of the game are such that whoever “screams the loudest” has better access to the media and the benefit of the judiciary system that is inherently incapable of ensuring a framework on which economic reforms can take place. Without contracts that are enforceable for all the parties involved, it will be futile to introduce reforms. The latter will be unravelled by the inability of the courts to enforce these contracts. For the new reality to become understood as something that requires new bold reforms to open up highly regulated markets and allow for productivity convergence between the public and private sectors, people need to be convinced that the rules of the game apply to all concerned. Until now as we speak, any attempt to bring individuals to justice who have either stolen public funds by not returning huge sums of collected VAT to the government, let alone the known income tax evaders, only results cases that are pushed into the future as these individuals are allowed to walk. The excuse here is that the judiciary is too overburdened to deal with these cases effectively and promptly. I am afraid that unless this government or any government deals with that aspect of the broken system, any reforms will never be implemented. To have any chance of success, let alone any chance to reach a climate for economic growth, there has to be a framework for enforcing contracts that is recognized and respected by all by imposing stiff penalties to all those who violate their side of the contract, whether public officials involved in corruption cases or entrepreneurs not returning the sums of VAT that they have collected on behalf of the government.One may counter, that Greece was growing until 2008 at reasonably healthy rates with the same judiciary and the same lack of contract enforceability system. Yet, even though we all recognize the reasons behind this consumption led growth engineered by easy credit, which led to the current crisis, it is the asymmetry between the upturn and downturn that obscured any need for reform. An expanding economic pie conferred benefits to all, even though these benefits also created “built in” destabilizers that now confront us all. I think, given the state of corruption as the result of lack of contract enforceability, the main reform that at this point that needs to take place, is the reform of the judiciary, for anything else to have any chance of success.
