1. The draft of the proposed TCP (Transparent Complaint / Proposal Procedure, also known as TOG = Transparent Opinion Gathering) Gazette Notification law

 

The proposed TCP law, to be signed by PM (and printed in Gazette Notification) has only 2 clauses, as follows.

(Please note that # 3 is a mere declaration.)

Officer

Procedure

1

Collector

(or his clerk)

If ANY citizen-voter comes with voter ID, submits an affidavit having Right to Information application / complaint against corruption / proposal / any other affidavit to the Collector and demands it to be put on the Prime Minister’s website, the Collector (or his clerk) issues a serial number and puts Voter-ID number plus complete scanned copy of the complaint on PM’s website for a fee of Rs 20 per page.

2

Village Officer (V.O), Patwari, Talati

(or his clerk)

(2.1) If ANY citizen-voter comes with voter ID, and specifies YES/NO on an RTI application/complaint / any affidavit submitted in clause-1, the Talati (V.O) enters Citizen-Voter’s voter-ID number and his YES/NO on the PM’s website and gives a printed receipt for Rs 3 fee. The Talati will also allow citizen-voters to change his YES/NO for Rs 3 fee, ANYDAY. The fee will be Re 1 for BPL card holder.

(2.2) The V.O. will also allow citizen-voter to cancel his YES/NO without any charge, ANYDAY.

(2.3) The Collector may create a system of taking finger-print and picture of the citizen-voter and putting it on the receipt.

(2.4) PM may enable citizen-voters to register YES/NO via SMS for 10 paise

----

This is not a referendum procedure .The YES/NO count will not be binding on PM, CMs, officers, judges etc. Though if over 37 crores citizen-voters register Yes on a given affidavit, then the PM may or need not take necessary action on the RTI application affidavit; or the PM may or need not resign. PM’s decision will be final.

We summarize the TCP law as  

If a citizen wants, then by visiting Collector’s office, he can put his RTI application etc on PM’s website Rs 20 /page.

·   If a citizen wants to give his opinion on a TCP RTI application /complaint etc., then he visits Talati’s (Lekhpal, Patwari etc) office, registers his YES (to support if he thinks it is a good complaint) or NO (to reject an unproductive complaint) & displays it on PM’s website along with citizen`s Voter ID number for Rs 3 fee.

·   The YES-count is not a binding on PM Etc.

2. What is the meaning of TCP `Transparent` Complaint / Proposal procedure` & how will this work?

`Transparent` complaint/procedure is defined as a complaint which is VISIBLE and VERIFIABLE anywhere, anytime and by anyone, so that it cannot be suppressed by any politician, official (like Lokpal, etc), judge or media. Say, there is a corrupt minister in your area and you and lakhs of people want to complain that `This minister is corrupt and should be removed. ` Now, what are the present-day options for making a complaint? One option is dharna, but dharna is useless unless it is `fixed ` because today opposition to the government is met by lathis of the police etc. Another option is signature campaign but that also fails since there is no backup of signatures of citizens with the government in our country and thus signatures cannot be cross-verified and will be proclaimed `false` by the authorities and media.

Now, if this complaint is made via the above procedure whereby, any person can go to any collector office and give the complaint that `the minister is corrupt and should be replaced` and if lakhs of people will support the complaint, they can go to their nearby Patwari/Talati office and give Rs.3/1 and voter id details and finger print scan for verification and all that will come on PM website. Now, the media or any authority cannot claim these supporters are false since there is fool-proof verification done and cross-verification of a sample can be done anytime. The complaint cannot be manipulated since the complaint is VISIBLE always to lakhs and crores of people world-wide. The media will also have to take up this complaint or it will lose its credibility for not taking up a genuine, verified complaint which lakhs of people support. And this way via media the complaint will spread all over the country. Now, the lakhs and crores of people who have supported this complaint will put pressure on the MLAs, MPs, etc. of their area ‘Why do you not take any action against this complaint when it is clearly visible that lakhs and crores of people are supporting this? `This pressure will come on the higher authorities and even the PM and some suitable action has to be taken. So, this transparent system will work via public pressure and is an alternate media giving free, verifiable information.   

3. Is that all?

Yes, that’s all. Nothing more. So now the question is: how can such a mere three line law solve daunting problem of poverty? How can it solve equally tough problems like corruption in policemen/judges?

A complete proof that this 3 line proposed law is capable of solving EVERY problem that West has solved runs into some 300 pages and we have written this in form of various articles on www.rightorecall.info/301.pdf . But IMO, a reader will be able to understand only via a discussion over phone/meeting and not via written articles alone. Why a discussion is over phone /meeting is a must? So can we explain the proposed TCP & other laws by write-ups alone? No. Because when any new law is proposed described, a reader will almost always have valid questions about possible “adverse side effects” on other areas of society, and efficacy. E.g. Say one proposes POTA to reduce terrorism, one may have valid concerns on side effects such as “won’t this law increase corruption in police?” And one can also have questions on efficacy – “will this law really reduce terrorism by even 1%”? And unless these valid concerns on “side effects” are answered immediately, the reader will lose interest in reading the proposed laws further. In Math’s, theorems and equations don’t have “side effects” and strength. E.g. a theorem on Triangles is not 97% correct; it is always 100% correct. And theorem on Triangle won’t adversely impact Circles. And so questions on strength and side effects will seldom arise in the minds of readers while reading write-ups on Maths. So write-ups alone are sufficient when proposals are have no side effects like in Maths. But if a proposal is believed to have side-effects, write-ups alone won’t help no matter how much time we spend on making the write-ups. Interactive discussions are must at the forum/facebook, links mentioned above and by personal meetings.

4. Do all citizens in India have internet to use this law?

This is the most common “wrong question” we get. We call it wrong question, because the law does NOT at all require the citizen to have an internet connection begin with. Whether the citizen has internet or not, he must visit the Collector’s office in person to submit his complaint or RTI application. And whether he has internet or not, he must visit Talati’s (Lekhpal, Patwari, VO) office in person to register YES on a complaint or affidavit. So internet is not at all required to use this law, and even if a person has internet, it would make no difference. So the law can be used by all citizens of India above 18 years of age. If he has internet connection, he can read the affidavits with ease. But then so can someone without internet --- he only needs to ask someone who has net.

5. How does TCP law reduce poverty within 3-4 months?

The day PM signs this TCP law, we will be submitting about 200 affidavits. The first affidavit is what we call as MRCM – Mineral Royalties for Citizens and Military. The MRCM affidavit is a 7 page proposed law listed at chapter 5 of www.righttorecall.info/301.pdf . The proposed MRCM law creates an administrative system by which each citizen DIRECTLY gets mineral royalties and land rents from GoI plots. E.g. Say in Dec-2008, the mineral royalties and land rent from GoI plots was Rs 30000 cr. Then as per the proposed MRCM law, Rs 10000 will go towards Military. And for rest Rs 20000 cr, each citizen will get about Rs 200 deposited in his local SBI account or local post office bank account. If each of the adult citizen of India visits bank once a month to withdraw the cash, only about 100,000 clerks will be needed. Well, existing SBI has staff of over 300,000 and all PSU banks together have staff of over 600,000. So the staff needed to support MRCM is not very large.

As this point, we will ask question to the reader. Please read rest of the article only after answering this question.

Background information for the question:

1.    Say PM has been forced to sign TCP law when crores of people come to know about it and demand it.

2.    Say we have submitted MRCM affidavit which says that mineral royalties and land rent should directly go to citizens

3.    Now in some other article, we have explained how 10s of crores citizens of India will come to know about the proposed MRCM affidavit after it gets submitted.

4.    Of the 72 crore adult citizens of India, for the purpose of this question, please consider the economically bottom 80% Ie. economically bottom 58 crores adult citizens of India.

Our first question to the reader: How many of these 55 crores citizen-voters, who are at economic bottom, will say – we do not want this Rs 200 per person per month or whatever may be the amount and let this money go into GoI account?

Please read further ONLY after answering the above question. Our answer is – less than 5% will say that we do not want this Rs 200 per person per month.  So now most of the citizens in bottom 55 crores of the 72 crores adult citizens will have one main thought --- what do we lose? Only Rs 3/- and nothing more. A shot in dark, and what PM actually signs MRCM law, and then we may actually get Rs 200 per person per month.

Now we have another question to the reader.  The background information for the question is as follows:

1.      Say PM has been forced to sign TCP law.

2.      Say someone has submitted MRCM affidavit and 40 crores to 50 crores citizens have submitted YES on it

3.      Please re-read the clause-3 of the TCP law. The clause clearly says that even if all 72 crores citizens  submit YES on an affidavit, then also the PM is not at all required to sign the law proposed in the affidavit

Our 2nd question to the reader is: Do you think that PM will dare to say that “we will not sign MRCM law”? Ie. Will any PM dare to defy the YES from 40 crores or 50 crores or more citizens?

Please read further ONLY after answering the above question. Our answer is – PM will sign the MRCM law. Why? Because each citizen who has registered YES knows that he has 50 crores fellow citizens supporting his demand, and so they will confront PM openly thru means they see legitimate. And PM knows that citizens will agitate and he also knows that his 15 lakh policemen can’t stop so many citizens. So PM out of fears will not dare to defy so many citizens.            So within 1-2 months after TCP law comes, the citizens will be able to force the PM to sign MRCM law. And within 1-2 months after MRCM law is signed, the citizens will start getting mineral royalties and land rent from GoI plots, and thus poverty will reduce. Later, the tax reforms suggested will increase industrial production and remove poverty completely. These tax reforms are enumerated in chapter 25, www.rightorecall.info/301.pdf

6. How does TCP law reduce corruption in police, judiciary, etc.?
Our 3rd question to the reader
: Why is corruption in US policemen low (except in drugs related cases)? The one and only one reason why corruption in US police is low is because citizens in US have procedure to expel District Police Commissioner of their district. So Police Commissioner in US takes very less bribes and also ensures that his staff doesn’t take much bribes. If Police Commissioner in US comes to know that his junior staff is taking bribes, he will immediately run a sting operation; gather evidences and gets them expelled. Because he fears that if corruption in junior staff increases, the citizens may expel him. The corruption in US police in drugs related cases is because most citizens in US do not have much aversion against drugs. But since in India, citizens have NO procedure to expel Police Chief, the Chief not only collects bribes, he asks his juniors to collect maximal bribes. A typical Police Commissioner keeps half of what he collects and passes the half to MLAs, Home Minister and CM. How come you, the reader, did not know that US citizens can expel their Police Chiefs? Because the EIIs, who control most of the media and the textbooks, (EII = Eminent Intellectuals of India) do not want citizens of India to know that “US citizens have procedure to expel District Police Chiefs” because EIIs don’t want citizens of India to demand such procedures.

            We have prepared the draft of law, which when signed by CM will create a procedure by which citizens of district can replace the District Police Commissioner. We call this draft as DPC-RP I.e. District Police Commissioner Replacement Procedure (see chapter 22, www.righttorecall.info/301.pdf ). The draft is 100% consistent with the each of the 33 dozen Articles of our Constitution and all existing laws.

Our 4th question to the reader is: Will any CM of India sign a law allowing citizens to replace DPC? Our answer is: NO. Because if citizens get procedure to expel Police Commissioner, then the Commissioner’s will have to reduce his monthly bribe collection from Rs 1 crores to mere Rs 1 lakh. And in that case, the monthly hafta Police Commissioner gives to MLAs, Home Minister and Chief Minister will also fall from Rs 50 lakh to mere Rs 50,000. And so MLA, Home Minister, CM etc. as of now will refuse to enact a law that would allow us commons to replace District Police Chief.

            But the game changes after PM is forced to sign TCP. Say PM has passed TCP. Then second affidavit we will be submitting will be DPC-RP affidavit. Most citizens will think “if this DCP-RP reduces the corruption in police even by 5%, Our Rs 3 is vasool”. And the biggest reason that will motivate citizens to register YES on DPC-RP is hatred against corrupt policemen, who make lakhs of rupees a months, while a common man barely makes a few thousand a month after hard labor. So again, if 70% to 80% of citizens of a State register YES using clause-2 of TCP, the CM out of fear will mellow down, lose all his bravado and will sign DPC-RP law. The fear of losing job is Supreme in a govt. officer or a judge. So within 14 days after citizens get procedure to expel District Police Commissioner, the corruption in Police Commissioner as well as other policemen will reduce by over 99%. Thus within 3 months after TCP passes, corruption in policemen will become near-zero.

            Right to Recall Police Chief is just beginning. Next comes by which citizens can replace PM, CM, MLAs, MPs, Supreme Court Chief judge, High Court Chief judges, Reserve Bank Governor, State Bank Chairman, District Education Office, Mayor and officials at 251 positions at National, State and District levels. Which recall law do you think citizens will oppose? Our answer is: NONE. So after TCP passes, chances are very high that within 6 months citizens will force PM to enact replacement procedures over 251 positions. And so corruption in all these positions will end for good.

7. Safeguard Clause

Please note the safeguard clause- ` (2.2) The V.O. will also allow citizen to cancel his/her Yes-No ANYDAY without any charge. ` This makes the procedure immune to money buyout, gangster power and media power.

8. Mass-campaign of solution-drafts via ads/pamphlets will bring immediate results

We have explained how mere 3 line TCP law will reduce poverty, corruption in policemen etc. 2-4 lakh activists can spread this info to crores via mass campaign in short time and they together can start a anti-Emergency type mass-movement (see chapter 10,13,14, www.righttorecall.info/301.pdf for details) and force the PM to print this law in Gazette Notification. Even before the procedures come, if few crores come to know about these procedures, they will start demanding these pro-common procedures and the public servants will fear that if they do not behave, the masses will demand these procedures and these procedures will come. These procedures enable the commons to punish/replace the corrupt. In other words, the threat of these procedures coming is also effective and will force the public servants to behave.

9. Why should I bother? I am quite well off. It may not affect me !

If INDIA SHIP sinks, we all will drown, we will be enslaved and looted by foreign countries and MNCs. Whether you are an elite group within captain’s circle or a common passenger or a poorest worker in the ship – ALL will drown. The best chance is to repair ship and move! We always had all resources to sail easily with all passengers. TCP is the step by step guide to how to repair!! We just need to repair the mis-managed ship!
