Indian Party for Development and Democracy

If Indian Party for Development and Democracy were in power,

i.there will be no need for Community(Caste) Certificates as there would be no discrimination for or against any caste while extending concessions, benefits etc.

ii. There will be no need for Income Certificates as schemes/benefits to people will not be based on the income

iii.There will be no need for certificates as to Small Farmers, as all farmers will be treated alike

iv.there will be no need for applying for separate patta for land as this will be done automatically by the revenue department on forwaring purchase/sale deed from the office of Sub-Registrar.

v. there will be no need for applying for name change for electricity servce as electricity board will automatically change the name on receipt of copy of sale/purchase deed from the office of Sub-Registrar

vi. There will be no need for ration cards as there will be no ration.. All able bodied people will be provided employment with decent salary. Those unable to do any work will be provided food, clothing, shelter in hostels financed by government.

vii. There will be no need for cooking gas cards, as everyone will be able to buy cooking gas in the open market. Since there is shortage of cooking gas, government itself in the initial stage produce and distribute biogas, solar cookers, solar heaters, etc.

viii.there will be no need for environment clearance, as government will itself prevent pollution on collection of fee from industries just as garbage is collected by local bodies.

ix.there will be no need for applicants for licences/permissions to obtain and forward to the licence/approval issuing authorities No Objection Certificates from various offices like fire department, thasildar’s office. Village Administrative Officer, health department, etc., as these will be obtained directly by licence/approval issuing office.

x. there will be no need for the public to visit any government office personally for any service, as applications can be sent by post or online and the approval/certificat will be sent by post or by email.

xi. there will be no need to go to government office or bank to make any payment to the government as cvomputer centres will make payments electronically after receiving cash/cheque etc from applicants

xii.there will be no corruption, as in most cases, applicants do not meet the officials and the possibilities of officials asking bribe is almost nil.

xiii.There will be no overloading in trains, buses, trucks etc, as additional trains,buses, trucks will be deployed and roads will be wider and thee will be additional rail lines.

xiv. there will be no need for reservation in government jobs for any community as there will be adequate jobs in the public and private sector and the salary level and other facilities in these sectors will be more or less same.

xv.there will be no need for government to extend subsidies to farmers,consumers etc as the prices will be allowed to be determined by market forces. Only in unusual circumstances,the government would interfere.

xvi.there will be no power-cuts as adequate power will be generated from non-conventional sources like sun, wind, waves, biomass, urban waste/garbage etc.

xvii.in all cities, towns and major panchayats, electric trains/buses will be run.


Local recruitment for lower government jobs

Indian Party for Development and Democracy is of the view that all lower posts in the state and central government should be filled locally through interview and/or examinations. Locally recruited staff will be able to handle the people better, know at least some of the people and hence easier to  decide on their requests etc. For example, local Village Administrative Officer(VAO) knows the communities of the people, knows the family details of the people, their approximate income etc and can issue community certificates, certificates for ration cards,  income certificates, certificates for old age pension, etc immediately. On the other hand an outsider VAO has make enquiries before issuing the certificates and this leads to delays and possibly to corruption. Besides this, there is no need for houses for the locally recruited VAOs in the places of posting. Outsider VAOs have to take leave to visit their home towns, adding to the transport requirement, absence from office at least for a few days in a year etc. The outsider staff also cannot be expected to be so much concerned about the local people, as the locally recruited staff. Local staff in general are satisfied even with low salary and hence as a satisfied staff their output is more and of better quality.

Class IV and Class III posts and some of the Class II posts can be filled up with locally recruited staff. Some of the posts in these categories are, Peons, Junior Assistants Junior Engineers, Police Constables, Sub Inspectors,  Health Assistants,Nurses, Asst.Agricultural Officers, Foresters, Teachers in the primary, middle and high schools etc.  When qualified staff are not available locally, outsiders can be appointed.

India- GDP Growth- 12%- 15% per year

India- GDP Growth.

The present  per capita GDP of India is very low. So it is easy to achieve very high growth rate. If Indian Party for Development and Democracy comes to power, the government will target and achieve annual GDP growth rate of 15% for the first 3 years and 12% for the next 2 years. The growth will be achieved as below.

1.procurement prices of  cereals will be increased by 50%. This will lead to an increase in agricultural production by  at least 50%. The target is to double agricultural production in 5 years.

2. vegetables and fruits also will be procured and  preserved to ensure that the prices do  not crash when production increases.

3.irrigation facilities will be expanded vastly to meet the requirements of agriculture. factories will be set up to prepare manure. lakes will be deepened to hold more water and draining rainwater into the lakes will be increased by removing obstacles. irrigating lands directly from canals will be discouraged and digging wells for storage of water and using well water for irrigation  will be encouraged so that the water can be used for longer period. draining of water into the sea will be reduced.

4.Inflation due to price rise of agricultural products will be met by increase in wages by about 60% to ensure that workers do not face any difficulties in buying  their  current  requirements and  new/additional items.

5.To ensure availability of jobs for all the people, a large number of infrastructural projects like railway lines, roads, non-conventional energy generating plants, inland river transport projects  coastal shipping projects , mining projects etc. will be undertaken.

6.Production of all  industrial goods will be increased by 15% every year by enhancing productivity, providing  additional shifts, and consumption will be increased by a combination of creation of jobs, increased wages etc.

6a.service industry will be expanded to meet the increased demand.

7.export of  iron ore will be banned to ensure supply for expanded steel plants.

8.Loans will be given liberally to encourage people to  build houses and to buy products

9.In addition to increase in production of cotton and other fibres, new fibres like banana fibre will be introduced to meet increased demand.

10.Printing of currency notes will be increased to commensurate with GDP growth so that there is no shortage of money for any project or for productive purposes

11.Every adult will be encouraged to have bank account and debit card and shops will be encouraged to accept debit cards so that need for currency notes is kept minimum.

12.wastage will be reduced by utilizing the wastes like garbage for generating electricity, leaves for manure, utilized & dirty water for irrigation after purifying the same etc.

13.To enable more people to come into workforce, employers will be encouraged wherever possible to allow flexible working hours to employees, to allow employees to work from homes etc.


atomic energy

Party for Development and Democracy-manifesto


Atomic energy will be used for forming canals which will be linked to rivers with a view to transfer surplus water from one river to a deficit river , thereby reducing possibility of floods and  droughts

Atomic energy will be used to increase agricultural production.

In the context of the agitations for stopping the work of Koodankulam Nuclear power plant in Tamilnadu and phasing out of other nuclear power plants and the views of experts on the safety of these plants, PDD government would carefully consider the pros and cons. The points in favour are:

1. India’s demand for power is increasing and the present supply is grossly inadequate.

2.India does not have sufficient coal reserves to meet requirements of existing and new thermal plants

3. The scope for new hydro-electric plants is limited

4. Nuclear power production does not pollute the atmosphere as thermal plants.

5. There are adequate safeguards to prevent any leakage of radio activity. The Japan power plants are about 40 years old and those did not have safeguards as the new ones.

6. Nuclear technology development cannot take place if we give up building nuclear power plants.

The points against the nuclear energy are:

1.If a developed safety conscious country like Japan could not ensure safety to the people from nuclear power plant, how will India do it

2.The alternatives to nuclear energy viz wind power, solar power, biogas/biomass power have not been fully utilised and exhausted. Solar and biomass energy alone can meet the exising and emerging need for energy

3. Sea waves have not been exploited for generating elecricity and the potential is said to be immense

4. Solar and biomass energy also do not contribute to pollution

5. Unlike nuclear energy, solar, wind and biomass energy plants can be dispersed across the country which would mean less transmission losses.

Both points of view are convincing. So a decision on new nuclear plants will be taken by PD government by putting the issue to referendum.

use of nuclear energy to build dams

India uses nuclear energy mainly to produce electricity, and in medicine, food processing and food preserving

In 1965, Soviet Union used nuclear energy to create across Chagan river, a dam,called Lake Chagan, 100  meter deep,400 meter in diameter and 20-35 meter in height. India at present needs lakes and canals badly, to irrigate the lands to increase the food grain production from around 250 million mt per year to about 400 million mt i.e 300kg Per capita, per year  which is the world average. The government to start with would use nuclear energy to build such a dam across  one of  the major rivers like Godavari, Krishna and Kaveri in the South. It would also try to dig canals with the help of nuclear energy to link  two of the above mentioned rivers.

Incidentally, these efforts would refine the nuclear technology available with us beside increasing the food grain production and eliminating or minimising floods..
