they are not prone to blackmailor pressured by IOUs conceded People who can judge a caserun an electionprosecute a criminal politicianinvestigate a corrupt bureaucrat effectively and fairly But where do you find someone whoin addition to thiswould be willing to retire quietly into obscurity Our system is much too brutal and clever to let such rare people rise anywhere close to the top That is why it is only providentiallyrather than by choicethat one such is put in charge of an institution And then the institution changesand rises to its true power How many of our institutions do we really feel proud of today That we trust fully to protect our constitutional rights and liberty Your count will not go beyond twothe Supreme Court and the Election Commission In both caseswe were fortunate that just a couple of remarkable people came to lead them at some crucial junctures of our history Justice Verma himself picked up the thread from the great judges of the seventiesa remarkable handful led by late Justice HR Khanna in a cruel and crucial decade for our democracyto raise the Supreme Court to its true constitutional powerrespect and glory Verma then also took the weight of the same moral authority to the National Human Rights Commission TN Seshan showed the country and the Election Commission itself the power that the Constitution had intended to grant it but that his predecessors had never usedin the mistaken belief that they were merely another department of the government The EC was fortunate again to get an even more formidable and not a fraction as controversial or idiosyncratic chief in JM Lyngdohwho took its reputation and credibility even higherburying a tradition of state-sponsored rigging and terror threats in Kashmir and defying Narendra Modis loaded James Michael Lyngdoh chants to hold another election in Gujarat on his own terms Between the two of themthey built Brand EC to such a level that even the frailties of the odd lesser successor have not been able to dent it Seshan himself failed to pass the second part of Justice Vermas testby his delusional quest for Rashtrapati Bhavan But to his credithe had taken the image of the institution so high that the only stature his hubris damaged was his own Of courseEC was fortunate that Lyngdohone of our sharpest and cleanest civil servantsfollowed soon in his wake EC then survived many controversies and shenanigansand at least one CEC who completely flunked the Verma test Forget going into retired obscurityhe cadged a Rajya Sabha membership on a party ticket and then a ministry so insignificant that the only reason he is noticed is because of his unseemly turf wars with Suresh Kalmadi and a fellow Gillof the Indian Hockey Federation Today nobody dares to mess with either the EC or the SC One can still countermand an election in Bihar or Kashmir and the other can set the CBI on the Sohrabuddin case Both have survived sabotagesubterfugeallurements and vilification by the political class All because a fewjust a fewgood men came to lead these at some providential moments of time Can you imagine how much stronger we would have felt as a nation if just two other institutionsthe CBI and the CVChad also been similarly fortunate The sad fact is that the Supreme Court has repeatedly enhanced the powers and autonomy for both these institutions and the law places the CBI under the CVCs superintendenceto give one autonomy and the other investigative muscle But neither has been blessed with a leader who would be willing to embrace this power of institutional autonomy Insteadan entire succession of our CBI directors have only made news through rotten controversiesand have spent their tenures fixing cases politicallyone way or the other As for our CVCsdo you remember the names of any They have been so ineffectualsuch non-entitiesand so inadequate for the job that their office has mostly been reduced to a post office where claimants for public sector jobs and their lobbyists or rivals write endless complaints against each other and ensure that these are duly leaked A clean-up of the CBI is probably too much to ask for in todays political climate But maybewith some luckif only we could get a strong and wise CVC A formidable chief justice has taken over the Supreme Court A CECNavin Chawlahas retired today after a distinguished tenure and he has been succeeded by SY Quraishi Both have worked together to enhance the ECs reputation over the past five years And as that gathering last Saturday morning showedthis city still has many people who will risk their lives and future interests for as little as Rs 12000 a month (which is all that KJ Rao was paid when he cleaned up the Bihar election) and leave a brilliant legacy

Revenue Code 2006 “The decision has been taken after Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav informed the Governor in writing that the winter session of the state Assembly would be delayed and is likely to take place in the last week of January 2016 Thus seeing the urgency of the matter clearance has been given to it” an official spokesperson of the Raj Bhavan said The Revenue Code (Amendment) Ordinance 2015
