  • An officer with a mission the real bond against corruption:Deepak Rawat

    It was just a fluke visit to Dev Bhoomi and I was waiting for my taxi to arrive. My friends in the other car went to various places for holy dip in the ganges.I did not disturb them.I was simply enjoying the cool breeze in Har Ki Pauri.I loved the songs played in the autos near by and the constant sound of the diesel motor that got fresh sugar cane juice for the pilgrims.Man women and kids were happy to be in this place that is full of blessings. I had my laptop so I started searching for the top officials in the district of Haridwar and to my utter surprise I found google tell me all crazy and inspiring stories of a man who is a role model for the youth of our country. Har Ki Pauri gave me an officer. I was eagerly looking for an honest officer who could convert my hard core journalism experienc into social work primarily educating the girl child and making them feel secure.

    Another Story that will amaze you goes as follows:

    On a weekday evening, a man walks into the Nainital district magistrate's office, after the DM has left instructions with his staff to let in anyone in need of urgent assistance. The man, in his forties with teeth turned brown from pan masala salutes the DM and says, "Neta-ji (a senior leader and MP) se baat ho gayi hai, gadiyaan chhor dijiye (we have talked to the MP, please release the vehicles)." The DM is visibly miffed, but tries to maintain his composure. "These vehicles have been seized because they were being used for illegal work and can't be released. And never ever give me these references again. I have been serving the public for a decade now," says the 38-year-old Deepak Rawat, of the 2012 IAS batch. The visitor leaves in a hurry and the DM returns to his work. It has been almost a year since Rawat took charge as DM of Nainital, the district once hailed as the summer capital of the pre-independence United Province during the Raj. Rawat's job today, as he describes it, is "fire-fighting 24x7 without rest."

    A brief profile of DM Deepak Rawat

    Originally from Mussoorie, a topper in History during graduation and postgraduation and ardent lover of philosophy, the officer gives credit to his Delhi University teacher and Jawaharlal Nehru University batchmates for his selection in the Indian Revenue Services in 2005 and then for securing 12th position in UPSC in 2012. His way of dealing with public and related affairs soon granted him a significant position in the public eye. "My idea of getting things right is fixing accountability. Without accountability there is no delivery," adds the IAS officer. Surprise inspections of hospitals, schools, government offices, meetings with experts and common people with grievances in order to rectify their problems defines his day. A typical workday sees him imposing fines, raiding school premises across town, inspecting hospitals, medical stores, and government parking lots and so on.In 2012, Rawat became managing director of Kumaon Mandal Vikas Nigam for 28 months, during which time the organization, which was making a loss of Rs 1.4 crore started making a profit of Rs 5.5 crore.Earlier he had hauled up officials of Haldwani tehsil for what he said were "major discrepancies" giving many of them adverse entries in their service records. While the public feels that he is voicing their concerns, Rawat takes all of these as part of his work. "See, as a bureaucrats we have to deal with all kinds of people. What keeps one going is the ability to deal with the situation and not crumble under any kind pressure," he says. Married for the past three years to Vijeta Singh, metropolitan magistrate at Patiala House court, the couple have a one-year-old daughter. Rawat's other passion is music from Bollywood classics. A bird watcher, Rawat also reads great philosophers like Camus and Nietzsche when he can spare the time.
