A File Too Far

India Today - - GLASS HOUSE -

Min­is­ter for Science and Tech­nol­ogy S. Jaipal Reddy doesn’t have it easy. His of­fice is in the Anu­sand­han Bhawan at Rafi Marg in Lu­tyens’ Delhi, while the en­tire science and tech­nol­ogy min­istry works out of Prodyo­giki Bhawan near Mehrauli. Depart­ment of biotech­nol­ogy has its of­fice in CGO Com­plex, Lodhi Road. So when­ever the min­is­ter wishes to meet the science and tech­nol­ogy sec­re­tary or wants to see a file or doc­u­ment, it takes any­thing be­tween 30 min­utes and an hour to reach him. It’s ei­ther a test of Reddy’s pa­tience or of the min­istry’s use of mod­ern com­mu­ni­ca­tions tech­nol­ogy.
