Newspaper Ads are a real harassment

Sunday Times of India has 68 pages. Out of these, 50 pages worth space is only advertisements. I am not interested in these ads but I have to shell out Rs. 6.50. I am sure, other newspapers are also not lagging behind. Why should I pay for ads? People inserting these ads have already paid for them. It is nothing but harassment and that too in the morning.

Parliamentary Standing Committee on Personnel, Public Grievances, Law and Justice headed by Dr. E. M. Sudarsana Natchiappan, M.P., has taken up the subject “Public Grievances Redressal Mechanism” as a part of study of Administrative Reforms. Since the Government has already passed the Right to Information Act 2005, the Committee has decided to take up the subject “Public Grievances Redressal Mechanism”, as available in various Government Departments/Organizations/PSUs/Banking institutions/Trusts for detailed examination and report. The committee would also like to explore the necessity of a separate enactment on the Public Grievances Redressal Mechanism.

The committee has invited memoranda containing suggestions/views/comments of individuals/ institutions/ organizations interested in the above subject. The suggestions should confine to the policy matters procedures adopted for the purpose etc. only and not on personal grievances.
