Changing face of Government Corporations:
Competition changes everything by changing competitors so is scenario with Government revenue earning Departments. Weather it is Banking, Tele-Communication, and Insurance, Government sectors are facing stiff competition from their counterpart Private Players.
Government owned BSNL turned Corporate is coming up with whole new Avatar. The never heard Good Customer Service, new offerings and plans every fortnight makes customer more pleasant. Technology and IT revolution plays a key role here. We never saw BSNL conducting such massive advertisement campaign, customer support initiatives that we saw this year. You have an issue/ grievances unsolved with BSNL, just write an e-mail to its senior officers or may be ministers, your issue will for sure be resolved within 15 days or so.
So is the truth with Banking Sector. Nationalised Banks running on slow reform and revolution track are now fully charged. Good Customer services that too with pleasing office interior makes Banking more pleasant. ATM is becoming most common and days are not far away when every Bank Account holder will have 3-4 Debit Cards in his Pocket with his preference and choice. Our Local Co-operative Banks needs to take a lesson from this robust 'Q' factor in Competition and should improve their services and offerings to stay in the market.
Entry of New Generation in these services is one of key aspect of changing managerial aspects. The greater there is younger generation inflows, the larger would be preferences to offering the best of services.
The scenario ahead in a year in Banking, Telecom sector gives a pleasant feels and comfort sign. Government sectors like City Corporations, District Collectorate offices, Tahsildars offices still needs much improvement.

With Assembly Elections 2004 ending, the political turmoil has ended and politicians are back to their routine works.

Independents standing in large numbers throughout the region lost their Election deposits as well while some had good time winning around 5000 to 10,000 votes.
The Electronic Voting Machine giving Polling booth wise results has generated fear amongst voters. Every candidate can now analyse from which area he/ she lost confidence and can play accordingly. Vice Versa, the candidate winning the race may ignore areas not voting for him/ her and thus may result in big flaw in World's largest democratic system. At one stage where we acclaim to arrange for Free and Fair Elections, this chaos causes deep troubles to common citizen. Every year after Election vote counting, there are numerous cases registered and many settled mutually in each and every constituency.

Our Judiciary System and EC should take special attention to this issue and resolve it at earliest so as Voters can come out freely and cast their polls. Otherwise, by every elections we will see lowering voting percentile followed by formations of joint alliance Governments resulting more of politics rather workmanship.

Candidates have begun visiting area by area and convince their voters of best of their performance in coming period. Rulings blame opposition and opposition guilt rulers of bad administration while independents have just one slogan of giving the best of what they could do. This assembly elections mark another significant change in psychology of candidates appearing for elections. Every Assembly constituency has more than 5 (even more than 10 at many constituencies) opponents fighting the battle.
The 'Power game' seems drifted and candidates focussing more of their strengths rather taking out and minimising opposition. This plus is one of vital signal of healthy electoral competition and opportunity to newer willing social workers and will definitely lead us towards forming a new passion driven Ruling.
We still have to fight one tough issue that of 'Low Literacy' amongst rural sections. This lower literacy causes reflection of Electoral results dominated by thinking voters rather Logo voters. If we could reduce this low literacy disadvantage, candidates could not find any excuse rather than working hard to win confidence of their area voters and region.
Its great time for unemployed as there is bulk work opportunity from political parties in view of elections. Parties are hiring daily basis workers with perks that includes two times meal to go with them for campaigning.
