    Hon’ble Sir,
    A lot of thanks for enacting and framing public grievance redressal bill -2015 . The law will be very useful for the commoners but I fear the present English type BABU hierarchy will never allow to be successful.Starting from dealing clerk to the Ministers, every officers are comparing their salary package like Private sectors effectiveness of short hierarchy and honest working like them.The majority of the officers never go through the content of grievances and blindly put their signature on notes of subordinates.. The lower hierarchy up to Dy . Secretary, who knows how to raise irrelevant queries and objections till their own grievances are redressed even in case of issuing pay slips to very old and in bed pensioners.
