Dear Advocate Siva
I have a fairly good idea about PIL. I am seized with a matter of public concern ( as par my self -over rated intelligence) regarding running of their own URCs( Unit Run Canteens selling CSD goods by the CAD Staff/Est (govt civilian employees of the Controllers of Defence Accounts) including host of others central govt as well as state govt Staff/Est who are outrightly in-eligible to even avail CSD facility.
To provide CSD facility which includes liquor at a rate cheaper than the prevailing market rates to the troops( CSD facility meant exclusively for them) more than 1.76 lakh crores( infamous 2G Scam presumptive amount of loss) goes down the drain from the govt excgequers in every three years.There are 34 CSD Depot and a Head office which besides provided with prime lands , govt employees and infrastructures from the consolidated funds of India is flushed with more and more funds as three service headquarters in direct collusion with the ministry of Defence is continuing to expand its clientles by including more and more govt as well as casual/ temp employees of the ministry of defence as well as employees of the CSD & URCs.
COAS is the perfect tool to expand the clientles by the milions simply by ordering him to bend like BECHAM and publish Army Orders relating to establishing URCs at REMOTE AREAS where Exservicemen concentration is considerable . And the COAS in the guise of welfare of Ex-servicemen add one paragraph out of context to allow CDA Est/Staff and almost all govt personnel in the ministry of Defence and Offence sorry Fin & Home to run their own URCs. The clientle in respect Troops is now less than half the clientle created by para 6(f) of Army Order 19/2003 & para 12 b of Army order 2/2006.
The advocates practising in the HC of AP are not well aware of the CSD business and havs discouraged me to file such petition stating Judges are not kind to the petitioners in the past.I have made honest efforts to convince some of them ( of course I can't afford likes of Ram , Arun or Abhiseks or ANAND who can buy verdict for me). Now I have decided to go full stream to file it online but finding it difficult to register in the SC site.
Pl clarify whether my case is within the scope of :-
Petitions pertaining to environmental pollution, disturbance of ecological balance, drugs, food adulteration, maintenance of heritage and culture, antiques, forest and wild life and other matters of public importance.
other matters of public importance.
An early reply is highly solicited.
