The title of this post speaks for itself. I will only try to present some facts to corroborate the title.
The Management regulations cited in the notification allow for only 4 days of Vacation for Sankranti. Then how come the commission declared itself a vacation spanning 2 weeks? This is what Regulation 6 says,
The commission has had summer and dusshera holidays as per the regulation. Not sure where these extra holidays came from.
Probably these holidays include last year's sankranti vacation too !!!
1. Summer Holidays : 5th May to 6th June, 2008.
2. Dusshera Holidays: 3rd October to 10th October, 2008.
3. Sankranti Holidays: 2nd January to 16th January, 2009.
It took me a call and a little bit of anger to change a simple thing in the commission !!!
The AP Information Commission is now allotted 1 Acre Land in Gachibowli that is worth Rs 10 Crore. The commission has requested that land and will now construct its own building there.

Dont you think the title is fully justified now? Its getting worse by the day and we cannot just sit back and relax. Time to do some serious stuff against the commission and its working !!!
Use RTI !!!
