Transparency and accountability is must for each public authority .

and accountability in the working of every public authority, the constitution of a Central
Information Commission and State Information Commissions and for matters connected therewith or incidental thereto.
WHEREAS the Constitution of India has established democratic Republic;
AND WHEREAS
democracy requires an informed citizenry and transparency of information which are vital to its
functioning and also to contain corruption and to hold Governments and their instrumentalities accountable to the governed;
AND WHEREAS
revelation of information in actual practice is likely to conflict with other public interests including
efficient operations of the Governments, optimum use of limited fiscal resources and the preservation of confidentiality of sensitive information;

Dear Sir/Madam,
I am enquiring about few things about the procedure to avail govt funding from DST for conducting sympisium in our college. But I couldn’t get proper reply so far.

Government must spend public fund not at the discretion of its ministers but after proper screening at various levels. History is witness that whenever more discretionary powers given to executives ,they always used such powers tyrannically which increased the corruption in the system. 

Undoubtedly the public fund collected by the staffs of government from citizenry in the name of taxes or in other forms must be utilised in proper way so that society may reap benefit of it.
