    I doubt on your dream of going paperless. See ECB website was done when it is required the most see election results. The culprit seem to be ever sinking BT services.

    You should wake up this BT. They are failing in all respect. Since almost all our services need to route through their network government dream of going paperless will be far unreaching dream.

    I don’t it is right to blame top management, but entire system seems to be something wrong at BBS. No matther what type of management deputed to BBS, things seems to be not at all moving ahead. BBS need to move forward as profit centre not remain all the time as cost centre. Unless you start generating your revenue you will be always below the quality in all aspects. Something need to rehaul at BBS.

    I also agree that there are interference for freedom of media. I also agreed we need new heads there at BBS. Further, there seems to be financial difficulties which the management team has to come up with commercial options for generating revenues. For example. BBS pay roughly Nu. 55,000 to have private producers to produce 1 episode of TV serial/ series and it comes to total expense of Nu. 1,375,000 for 25 episodes. Most of the times these products lack entertainment values, poorly presented socal messages or no useful message at all. These products air twice and get archived forever in shelves. Similarly, there are several valuables documentaries and other medias just arichived and occupy BBS space. BBS management should do something to get return on investment (ROI) from these media resources. For examples:
    1) BBS may setup eShop for e-commerce where you maintain secure online library of your medai and customers buy your media online. Similar to B-Vallet, for each down money get credited to BBS account.
    2) We can have outlet where BBS media already broadcasted can be sold through CDs, copy to other medias on chargeable basis
    3) Once BBS completes their quota of 2 shows, the same media can be auction to Local TV line distributor with right show only or entire copy right or time based contract. These local channels are hungry without contents whereas BBS is finding too difficult to keep tract of their archieve.
    4) Some of the good materail can be sold to external broadcasters with englist sub titles.

    The whole objective of BBS is to create awareness to general public while at the same time entertaining viewers. Promote our culture, tradition and other values. At the same time we have to get some revenue rather than beeing fully dependant of RGoB.

    I think that way it is really WIN-WIN initiative for BBS, viewrs and other customers who are interested to pay fee and download from the computer. BBS generating revenues, promote Bhutanese contents and also able to disseminate message to viewers while viewers able to get important message across and at the sametime entertained on Bhutanese contents.

    Furtjer, the local channels are filled with repeated and irritating songs/ danaces shot at school concerts. That way, nobody watch local channels and switch on to other channell

    How transparent is DRC when comes to refund process? No point in talking about G2C. When most of governent websites are for formalities and down most of the time. For example Ministry of Labour and Human Resource website, it is either not functioning whole or partly. There are several job seeker who want to track jobs and status of their applications. It is depressing to note that their website are down most of the time. Look JDWNR website, which doesn’t have most required information like availability of doctors. Look at Thromde’s website they have either wrong forms or out dated forms and when about to download system crashes..

    PDP you need to do something please!

    I really agree on the post. The fat officers sitting on the desk now just to show temper on tax payers. They are not transparent, and friendly. They look as if some one forced them to work on free. Why don’t you keep good and approachable officers. Are we running out of such persons? There are several qualified graduates , replace them. PDP do you know that Governance if one of the fat pillar of GNH. What is use of being big buzz about G2C when the tax authority cannot send acknowledgement on the tax paid on time, when tax authority cannot refund the PIT excess on time and disseminate information on time, when Tax authority is unapproacheable and unwilling to clarify tax payers doubt.

    PDP your time is running out. You better do something about public servuecs.

    Unless similar initiatives organized by schools and institutions and take up on mass effort, we wouldn’t be able to eradicate from this land of Guru Rinpoche. Why don’t we do mass and prove that we can do. Relavent authorities, lease create awareness and let us all see engaged in positive actions before our younger generation become addict and deluded.

    Dear Dasho Thrompon,
    I know that you are trying to bring lots of changes. However, I don’t understand why there is no provision for dust bins at public places like open gyms. Some responsible citizens with civic sense have tried their best to but up a temporary bins (dalda tins, paper boxes and plastic bags). However, there seems to be no organized ways to collect on wastes being collected.

    In view of the above, I would suggest at least provision dust bins at important public places and ensure they are collected and dispose on time.

    Even though some senseless and uncivic public litter the places, it is now encouraging to see several responsible and civic individuals voluntarily trying to pick rubbish and dispose nearby dust bins.

    Dasho, we appreciate your frequent appearing in media – but lack in those simple areas.

    Dear Author,
    Well researched and written. Really valuable information which many including myself are ignorant about it. By the way I am really wondering why our government is not realizing such difficulties, risks, damages to life and properties while travelling through those Indian towns. These incidents and problems are not new. If they were/are really serious, concerned about the people of Bhutan and with proper vision, by now those roads infrastructure connecting our places within Bhutan should be ready. Where were they sleeping so long? Building their own houses? Every time, there is unfortunate incident, we never had nor have any concrete solution – just say ” As we have to pass through neighboring Indian towns we can’t help it”. How long we have to listen to such lame excuses? Whenever there is kidnapping cases – we just say ” We don’t have adequate security personnel” How long we have to listen to such rubbish? Several uniform personnel are misused in apple orchards, personal house constructions to name few. It is time we push those roads connecting P/Ling – Sarpang, Sarpang to Samdrupjongkhar, P/Ling to Samtse. If required we can delay other projects and concentrate on those really infrastructure building. Policy makers and VIPs don’t suffer much and it doesn’t mean that less importance to be given for such national importance.

    Really concerned citizen.

    This is live example of being very materialistic, deluded with wealth and power. This is proof of great Law of Karma (Leyjumdey). Every action has reaction or say consequences. Good/positive action bear fruits happiness/tranquility/peace. Bad/negative action bearing miseries, worries, anxiety, depression and slowly lead to hospital and untimely death. We can cheat and tell lies to others, but not to yourself – that is called guilt. Whatever possession, position/name/fame you accumulated will vanish finally. But this guilt will haunt you till death and even result into carrying forward to next life.

    When people like Chang Ugyen and sr. civil servant who got every opportunity at the cost of nation could do such inhuman, uncivic, immoral acts, I don’t know what will happen to this nation when handed over to deluded and more materialistic future leaders. These guys have everything they want. I don’t know what else you require more. With positive act and little restrain from going into these immoral acts would have caused them little pain. But see now amount of sleepless nights, anxiety and depression they are going through. They are just few example-peak of ice-berg. Slowly, ACC will come up with more greedy peoples. I really started to believe that we are really into Dharma Decling era (Kaliyog). Guru Padmasambhava please protect and bless Aum Neten and her team so that they fulfill our kings’s vision of corruption free Bhutan.

    Really concerned citizen of Bhutan.

    This is really touching news. We Bhutanese preach others but bad practitioners. Taking life directly or indirectly is one of the most unforgiveable sins according to Buddhist religion. We refrain from killing but enjoy meat – indirect killing. I watched BBS Serial – Rimdro Episode #9 encouraging to give up killing and eating meat. It is will devised episode. I wish several such serials are produced for well beings of sentient beings. Refraining from killing and devouring meat have following benefits (but not limited to):
    – Spiritually feeling clean – absence of guilt
    – Hygienic – healthy (it is clean and safe to consume veg and fruits rather than eating unknown and dirty meats. We don’t what types of meat we are consuming and what types of dangerous chemical fed inside meat to look fresh, fleshy, and weigh more)
    – Environment friendly – leaving to biodiversity to balance each other rather than imbalancing by killing ones we love eating.
    – Economic benefit – as we need to import from India at the cost of Rupee.

    The authorities at CMC, Vellore Hospital suspect something drastic wrong in the diet we eat besides our careless life style. It is really disheartening to see big number of Bhutanese in CMC hospital failing kidneys, dying of stomach and other related cancers. The frequent pleas for kidney donation on BBS announcement really hurt me. I am not only preaching but also practicing – I have been diagnosed with high blood pressure (BP) in 2004 and was given choice of observing strict diet or life-long dependency on drug. I opted former (dieting). Accordingly, I have given up meat eating besides alcohol and smoking. I am fit as fiddle. I feel physically and spiritually fit and clean. Leave eating meat aside, even thinking of it makes me sick. When we see the flesh that you eat, you address as meat, but when you see dead bodies at cremation ground (duthroe) you address as “Dirty and smelling Corpse”. They are same and one– it is how your ignorant mind perceive.

    I am sure the above article would benefit general public at large and Buddhist in particular.

    Dear DPT,

    To gain support in 2018 you guys are pretending to be against pay revision. Why did you guys shouted that? Did anyone threatened you guys to keep quite? When comes to agenda you guys make noise, but when comes to your self interested you guys kept quite. If you really think that we should honour NA decision, there is chance to discuss in up coming assembly meeting.

    Please leave out your self interest and work in the interest nation at this hour of national crisis. If you guys work honestly for Tsa-Wa-Sum, money will come to you automatically with the virtue of selfless thinking. You guys are trying to kill a milking cow (robbing national coffer).

    Dear PM and team,
    I think you guys are digging your own graves. Despite seeing the plight of DPT in 2013, you guys are proving much worse than them. I can guarantee that you guys will surely loose 2018 election if you don’t correct/take smart decision on the following:
    i) Salary revision – very selfish plan for the benefit of you and ur team. This will surely backfire you in 2018.

    ii) Cancelling tobacco ban – Yes, it is not really effective and it will take time. However, I can feel the impacts (discouragement) particularly among rural population and youth. The ban is basically getting lifted because of ego of PDP smokers and NC smokers. Further, we have earned the name of “First Tobacco Free Country” in the world. How we are going to show our faces to outside world. This stubborn decision from your govt. really hurt our sentiment. You guys are setting negative precedence of down looking on the decisions/plans initiated by previous govt. You will have to face the nightmare in 2018.

    iii) Vehicle Allowances – You were the one who set example of foregoing with pool vehicle. That was purely white-washing general public faces. You are now acting otherwise. Other political parties are going to raise all these issues.

    Since I supported PDP in 2013 election, I am compel to remind you and your team. We have elected PDP for the better change – not for worst change. Please keep in mind.

    Dear PM,
    We really need to scrutinize recruiting agencies. It is really disturbing to hear that recruiting agencies are misusing power. My observations:
    – Most of the interviews/tests are just for formalities – candidates have been already identified. But those poor innocent candidates are being used for no fault of their.
    – Timing of the vacancy announcements are fashioned to fit the conveyance of their own candidates (I have personally witnessed that the head of the agency where I worked previously halted recruitment until graduation of his daughter from India despite our request to announce vacancy earlier)
    – Test paper leakage is quite common (please see recent Druk Air selection interview. Most of the participants know who will get selected)
    – Another loophole is Vi-va – only undeserving and with connection candidates score well. Please do something to stop this vi-va for new cruited. May be good for higher post.
    – Bigger companies just fool poor candidates ( recent vacancy announcement by Lhaki Cement was just formality. They were supposed to conduct interview here at Thimphu and changed to P/Ling at last minute)
    – Every agency mention experience as requirements and it is tailored to suit their own pre-selected candidates. Why don’t we recruit academically good candidates and train them, evaluate them during employment – hire/fire thereafter.

    – ACC and MoLHR need to really intervene. Otherwise, this frustrate group of youth will come up with something unpleasant. They are really loosing their patient and faith in whole system in Bhutan.

    I don’t denied poor job seekers going for drugs, robbery, gang fights, suicide out of frustration. They are being used/called here and there just to cover dust of those criminal, influential and people with connection. PM, please do something in this area.

    Every one of us know that previous government just talked about importance of Tourism. Visited many countries for marketing/researching and paid lots of hard currency to McKinzy consultancy. Look at TCB officials just going out in the name of marketing/researching and very difficult to meet when really required. I hope that PDP would not repeat same superficial plans and lectures contributed by previous government. We had enough of such – we want you to walk the talk please. Let me present few observations in the chain of providing tourism services:

    I – Druk Air:
    (1) Ticketing system and counter staff:
    Comparing to past they have improved a lot. However, they need to relook at followings:
    (2) Flexibility in changing travel dates, flight class, minor spelling mistakes in names, refund process for cancellation. One e.g. refund of cancelled tickets are entertained only once the group exit the country – it is too late.
    (3) Reduce fund transfer process from Druk Air to TCB account being maintained at BNB: Present practice is Druk Air issues BOB cheque that need to deposit in TCB A/c being maintained in BNB which takes 2 -3 days while going through RMA chegue clearing system. How about TCB having account with BOB or Druk Air issuing BNB Cheques?
    (4) eMailing tickets automatically – Sometimes only summary of group’s tickets are sent. Sometimes, we need to request staff time and again.
    (5) Phone/email communication – Need to encourage use of/response to such communication. At present it is either ignored or receives irritating response.
    (6) Mentality of 9am-4/5pm (government organization mentality) – We should do something to change this mentality particularly at Druk Air and TCB.

    II – Tourism Council of Bhutan (TCB):
    (1) Phone/email communication – Need to encourage use of/response to such communication. At present it is either ignored or receives irritating response.
    (2) Mentality of 9am-4/5pm (government organization mentality) – We should do something to change this mentality particularly among Finance and Visa sections.
    (3) Slow services-Finance Section – We see only 1 lady staff loaded with papers to be cleared. She is all the time complaining of staff shortage, over loaded. We have so many youths with BCom degree. Please do something so that our invoices are updated on time, advance requested cleared on time and financial settlement done on time so that we can give efficient service to our guests.
    (4) Slow services-Visa Clearing Section – Same complain of over loaded work and staff shortage. Again, we have so many unemployed youths with degrees – do something please.
    (5) Please communicate promptly if visa has been rejected so that we can take necessary action at the earliest.

    III -Immigration Department
    We accept mentality of 9am-4/5pm working hours, not entertaining phones/email communication, angry and demanding faces. But don’t forget that you are also part of Tourism Service Chain. Therefore, we request:
    -At least be open enough to talk properly to customers
    -Communicate proper and prompt reply if visa has been rejected so that we can take necessary action at the earliest.
    -We also request for contingency arrangement visa processing for long stretching public holidays.
    – We expect some degree of transparency. Every question ends with security and sensitivity. We respect/honour security and sensitivity of our nation. But we need somebody to explain and convince us.

    IV – General Requests:
    (1) Please ensure that we have staff with Public Relation (PR) attitude. At least who are willing to clarify customers’ doubts and be resourceful. We are suffocated to see gloomy faces as if somebody is forcing them to face customers at gun point.
    (2) Services during long/continuous public holidays – Please have some contingency services on those periods as obtaining visa on time is very important for our guests.
    (3) Let me quote an example of good customer friendly and resourceful staff at BNB (Thimphu) Foreign Exchange counter. I have seen only one such person in Bhutan – He is really resourceful and approachable. I suggest those concerned officials at Druk Air, TCB and Immigration to learn from him.

    We are very grateful to DPT for coming up with such noble initiative -TOBACCO BAN. However, it seems that current government and NC are against the ban. Since it is degenerated age, there will be more supporter for free smoking than the ban.

    I was also chain smoker. I got out of it with so much difficulty. Please don’t let it happen again. There will be several who are benefited by this ban. Please don’t make fun of noble initiative by DPT.
