Open any newspaper and you see that it has almost 65-75% advertisements. Out of these 50 % of them are of the government. There are adds of tenders which are mostly useless to the commom readers as the readers do not qualify. The stringent conditions are more exclusion.oriented . There is an internet site for tenders. In the same way there can be a similiar site for filing up vacancies./posts
In todays times when there can be a specific site [and there is ] for tenders why spend the government revenue on these useless advertisments. Under RTI act each public body /corporation /government institution should be asked as to how much do they spend on these adds.
Large page adds having big photographs of political leaders for opening/inaugaration of even small things is seen. tHEY KEEP NAMING ROADS, INSTITUTIONS, PROJECTS SCHEMES AFTER THIER OWN KITH AND KIN. Bear in mind , it is all out of the money we pay as taxes.
Can a PIL be filed restraining the government bodies to do so? Political leaders act as if they have carried out development by spending money out of thier own pockets. Should not all this stop. Whopping amount is spent on such advertisements. What does a person residing in Maharashtra want to do by learning developement carried out by Mayawati in UP or Mr X at Y. What does a peron have to do about laying tracks or acquiring of land in Madras? Buying of goods in Chatisgarh by a person in Kerala?
BEAR IN MIND THAT THIS THING GOES ON AT A DAILY BASIS. IMAGINE THE DRAIN.
