In this issue

Karti Chidambaram has allegedly accumulated unprecedented and unaccounted wealth. His is an unabashed saga of the failings of Indian polity and governance. His rise and rise, and now may be a fall, and the lust to earn tainted money proves how a father-son nexus, especially if the father (P Chidambaram) was thrice the country’s Finance Minister, can plunder a nation. Imagine a nation, where leading businessmen paid $15,000 each, or thereabouts, to the son to fix a meeting with the latter’s father. And then send a “Thank you” email. Imagine a country, where Karti was paid huge amounts to urge his father to okay well-deserved clearances, and slightly dubious ones, from the FIPB for foreign investment inflows. Political leaders in the Congress didn’t dare to act against the father, despite this being common knowledge for years. Instead, Sonia Gandhi and her son, Rahul, nominated him for another Rajya Sabha term in June 2016. In the BJP regime, meanwhile, a senior cabinet minister has the audacity and courage to defy his Prime Minister’s efforts to attack corruption. He is busy with the ‘Save Karti’ operation. Alam Srinivas opens up Karti’s Pandora’s Box of illegal business activities related to INX Media, Aircel-Maxis, Vasan healthcare, and many more. More than 50 questions were sent to Karti but he did not respond.

gfiles Magazine Description:





gfiles is the country's first independent magazine written, designed and produced for India's civil services—the vast and formidable network of bureaucracies and public sector organisations that provides continuity and stability to this nation's governance.

Every month this niche market product reaches 56,000 individuals with a universe of more than 1,00,000 readers. Its exclusive audience consists of the men and women who lead the Indian Administrative Service (IAS), the Indian Foreign Service (IFS), the Indian Police Service (IPS), the Indian Revenue Service (IRS), Class I Union Services, as well as a host of Allied Services.

gfiles magazine edited by India's seniormost journalists who have made an intensive study of the reading preferences of decision makers and implementers in government services, the magazine—with substantial contributions from serving and retired officers—is uniquely designed to engage the bureaucrat's attention in the entire content. It has therefore been divided into sections according to the specific reading needs of this target audience. While these readers flip through newswpapers and general magazines, they read gfiles from page to page.

This is because gfiles magazine provides not only exclusive news unavailable anywhere else in the media or the Internet, but also focuses exclusively on the future, anticipating events and developments. It contains detailed, extensive, and accurate reports about transfers and postings. It features interviews, case studies, snippets, retirement profiles, financial planning advice, political changes, as well as birthdays and alumni tracking.

gfiles magazine cuts through rumour mills and hearsay and helps India's civil servants reach out to one another, share and become acquainted with their issues, practical problems, everyday challenges and the intricacies of their working environment.
