Read the passage below:

Nannu is a daily wage earner. He lives in Welcome Mazdoor Colony, a slum habitation in East Delhi. He lost his ration. card and applied for a duplicate one in January 2004. He made several rounds to the local Food and Civil Supplies office for the next three months. But the clerks and officials would not even look at him, leave alone do his job or bother to tell him the status of his application. Ultimately, he filed, an application under the Right to Information Act asking for the daily progress made on his application, names of the officials, who were supposed to act on his application and what action taken against these officials for their inaction. Within a week of filing l:!,pplication under the Right to Information Act, he was visited by an. inspector from the Food Department, who informed him that the card had been made. and he could collect it from the office. When Nannu went to collect his card next day, he was given a very warm treatment by the Food and Supply Officer (FSO), who is the 4ead of a Circle. The FSO offered him tea and requested him to withdraw his application under the Right to Information, since his work had already been done.

What does Nannu's example show? What impact did Nannu's action ha!!e on officials? Ask your parents their experiences when they approach government officials to attend to their problems.

The example of Nannu given in the above passage shows that government’s officials only look for possible excuses to get rid of their work. This is because all the workers and oficials worked under government have security of their job and they only properly work when they get pressure from their seniors. They knew that in any case they are not going to loose their job or any action being taken against them and same thing happened in the case of Nannu mentioned above.
