Mukunda and raj jee becos of the mistake of web designer the postings from 118 to 27 were deleted. There were nothing I should afraid of except the frank comments and observations from the people of relevant fields. I do definately feel some time that comments are made just for the sake of comments, some are direct blame without any factual basis, some may try to use this blog with their ulterior motive but almost all the postings were useful to me. I, after noticing the deletion of some of the postings without my response, asked web manager immediately to restore the portion but he could not restore the deleted portion and created this site for interactive forum. Still I am trying hard to afix problems time will tel the truth. Becos of my intervention in some of the cases things checked before they went wrong, in some of the areas staff are cautious on there duties. I should admit that things regarding improving CAAN in terms of its deliverables and air safety have not changed as I wished but I have not given up hopes. Both you may well aware that I am not only the sole decision amker, even in case of CAAN, i am strongly criticised accusing me as unnecessary intervention in an autonomous body where I even do not represent in board. It is equally true that decisions in CAAN are delayed these days and responsible persons are not taking decisions in time, At this stage of JOB, say DG/DDG no one can guarantee to afix a person in chair for indefinate period, it is upto the integraty of the person in chair. Although I can,t say I long I wil be in this position but I know for sure that I wil work with fulfledged strength until the last day of my office in this ministry. I have never asked NTB, CAAN NMA not to invite moctca officials just I have asked repeatidly to all organizations that minimize or even eliminate DAL BHAT KHANE program to irrelevant person. This instruction is general and across the oard not intended to any official of moctca.

to Vidya limbu vidya jee, i am really happy that the blog is visited by university students the only future of this country who can or wil lead this nation to a new height be it in the field of socioeconomic development or in the field of creating harmonious society with dignity and pride. I fully agree with you that CAAN even ministry is dominated by ATCs even ATCs, as you see the previous postings they too are under qualified/not well trained. Act needs to be ammended to bring chenges and introducing lateral entry provision in managerial positions but there wil be strong ressistance from within. It needs to create condusive environment for the ammendment of the ACT by the comming meeting of constituent assembly, let us wrok together towards that end

MOCTCA/CAAN a captive of ATC's
Content
I agree with the posting TIA ATC'S on May 8th, 2008 at 1:49 pm regarding unavailability of essential services/system of International Airport. Facts mentioned in his posting is almost realistic. No doubt The situation should be improved. But “Who is responsible for this situation ?” is important. I believe, we do not need any investigation. DG/DDG's are responsible and GM is responsible in particular. No doubt the mentioned systems equipments need to be improved/procured/managed by the “Management”. But in this organization interesting thing is the definition of “management”it self. If you ask with top ranking officials of CAAN, like DG/DDG/ Directors, they like to define management as “The people who writes the cheqes and who signs the cheques”. The outcome of such management mentality can not be expected more than “degradation” of existing facilities and “up gradation” of living standards(of DG/GM/...yours ? ) The mentioned pathetic situation of airport is not build up recently but is pile up indefinitely from the history. Issue is not limited within ministerial discussion but is also discussed in ICAO regional level. ICAO also was seriously concerned in this issue. The special mission of ICAO/APAC was deputed and initially suggested the areas of immediate improvement. DG ignored the report (Dhoti Lagayo). None of the suggestions came effective. After 3 years, again a special mission of ICAO/APAC was deputed to follow up previous suggestion. Situation is still static. ICAO expert returned by saying “Jai Pashupatinath”. History shows top/decision/executive posts like DG, DDG, GM of then DCA, present CAAN/Ministry, being occupied by “Air Traffic Controllers”. This clearly proves the fact that “ATC's are not qualified to hold the important posts like DG, DDG, GM who even does not know the management of very basic system equipments/ facilities that is required to perform their own professional duty. This proves the fact that ATC's are the most unsuccessful executives in the public sector of Nepal. It is relevant/interesting to look up Mr. Sanjeev Kr. Gautam's posting about ATC. After reading this posting, I have collected list of “ATC sector facility development/ maintenance/ improvement” TIA related “Swikrit Barshik Karyakram” within CAAN. Surprisingly, none of the listed approved yearly programs progressing beyond tippani. Every program is pending for decision either by GM or by DG. GM has approx 6 month service period remain/ DG god knows. So they want safe exit. . When none of yearly development/ maintenance programs reaches logical end how can we expect improvement in current situation of TIA ?. I urge you to ask for progress report on “Swikrit Barshik Karyakram” of TIA and CNS/ATM project and ask individual status of each program in their “tippani file ? ” I have seen the discussion regarding the “RCAG” system implementation program to improve Area Control Service. I have heard about this program since last 4 years. Till date program is not implemented ?? is shameful to So called “Management of CAAN”. This was expected to be in service for L262 route operational on 2005. Where India already have facilitated their airspace up to the boarder and asking Nepal since last 4 years. Till date we see the tender process is in progress ??. We have seen tender notice “three times” in the past also. Fourth times this tender seems to be in progress ?? also looks unnecessarily delayed and urged even for cancellation ?. Mr. Secretary, We have observed that this blog is unnecessarily hampering/delaying decision process within CAAN. Present DG is telling to sub ordinates, even with foreign delegates in his meeting, that he has to return to The ministry at any time and will be sub ordinate of yours. He will not take any decision in this situation (political liquidity), Specially which is not beneficial (financially) to him like RCAG(where Aerothai has clearly stated the fact.). He is in the mood of CAAN “Bhad ma Jawos, Phaida Nahune Kam Kin Garne ? ” “Jadoo” can not be done overnight. Public Procurement Act/ Regulations/ Directives are there. Every development/ maintenance/ or other organizational work should be in accordance with the applicable laws. Every decision should be timely, free and fair. If DG/ GM looks only for percentages of commission from “Thekedar” specifically from Civil Engineering works, and make “phata phat nirnaya” on Civil tenders(40% margin) only, while ignores the development/ improvement/ procurement of ATC facility system equipment (where hidden cost is almost none as seen on Aerothai's statement). So, Mr. Secretary if you want to radical improvement in the image of aviation in NEPAL, please be aware of high rank ATC's around you. DG at least should not be an ATC. BB Deoja was not an ATC, the aviation got prestigious shape in the past. GM was not an ATC in the early past, remarkable development was there. What ever degradation we see today after “ATC raaj”.

Organizational issues in CAAN
Content
We are management student of Kathmandu University. We have selected Civil Aviation Authority of Nepal (CAAN) as candidate organization to learn / study and research on the status of public sector in Nepal. This organization was selected on the assumption of being high tech /international nature with known responsibilities. However we were highly discouraged when we been there within the premises and asked for the functions, organizational structure and the people actually deputed to work in the post. We know this organization was established through the Civil Aviation Authority Act 2053 and formally came into operation after relevant rules and regulation made by the government. The way of the organization to be operated is well documented. The interesting fact is that even the organization structure need to be approved by the Government of Nepal and accordingly the recruitment/ deputation/ promotion etc personnel administration function came into its role. In CAAN, documented organization structure is there. Procurement/ Promotion process is there. Staffs are appointed accordingly. However in the actual work benches we haven't seen any organizational shape. This is known fact that even in a family house, there is known responsibilities of each member and they do accordingly. But in CAAN, we have not seen the minimum organizational norms in practice. Legal officer's work bench, an ATC is occupying the working seat. In Corporate/plannings officials workbenches ATC's are occupying the working seat. In airlines sections ATC's are occupying the working seats. Even for the dispatcher's ATC's are occupying the working seat. DG personal secretary/ administrative workbenches ATC's are occupying the seats. MIS/ IT information publication workbenches are occupied by ATC's. While all these ATC's are still holding the posts of Air Traffic Services. In procurement, promotion training etc the personnel management related paperworks, they are in ATC services while in workbenches, they occupy the unrelated posts. This seizes the opportunities for the freshers and violets norm of open competition and the public service laws. The permanent and top most post within CAAN is 12th level after the politically appointed DG. DG is from ATC profession. All 12th level officials are nominated from ATC's profession. CAAN has named this group as “management committee” . Each and every policy decision is implemented by this group. The organization structure The organization policy is determined by these people. The current organization structure has secured ATC's interest of migrating from ATC job, for which they are prepared. The major posts like Airport Manager, TDO, Cargo, airline affairs, safety offices, corporate offices etc are defined to suit only for ATC service staffs. A lot of complains from other service groups has compelled them to rethink on the organization structure. However, the existing management committee consists of all ATC's. Legal officer is ATC and other influencing groups are ATC's due their numerical strengths. DG is ATC, In the ministry, the joint-secretary's are from ATC, Thus every policy decision is captive of ATC's. They secure their interest to unlawful extent. In our observation, the ongoing organization restructure process is fully influenced by group specific interests. Thus instead of improvement, this group will secure ATC's unlawful interest more specifically. None of now is capable to break this lobbing. Minister has no time to spend on these non profit issues. While there is only hope on Secretary's. You knows organizational norms, Personnel Management norms, and existing rules and regulations applicable to the government owned public sectors. So please be strict on the issues specifically raised above. Being management student, we would like to see government owned public sector in Nepal as an equal opportunity employer, transparent non discrimination on applicable opportunities. In New Nepal, Govt owned organizations running efficiently with the management values and norms so that the student of Nepal can learn from here and let the world also takes an example of Nepal in the management. Thanks and hope for improvement. Vidya Limbu MBA KU

Missing postings???
Content
Dear Mr. Secretary, Greetings, It was interesting to see a new format of your blog. Your blog had commanded interest as you didnt selectively filter the postings and allowed frank posting of comments without any unnecessary moderation. Since your blog was unavailable for a few days, people heaved a sigha of relief as they thought that you had ordered its closure. However, recent postings, before the blog took a new format, havent appeared on the blog. This either means that you were unable to fix the issues raised and therefore decided to choke this source of embarrassment (shoot the messenger- an English adage) or the important postings vanished during the modification of the blog. Please inquire about it or you will lose faith and the postings on very important issue like civil aviation for ever. Regards, CAAN Staff
