Our paper writers made their presentations and we conducted a review of the background studies starting at 10 am on 28.01.2016 at Commission of Inquiry Office, Hyderabad.
There was an engaged discussion facilated by Chairperson of the Commission of inquiry. The following major points emerged from the meeting.
1. There are some aspects like financial inclusion, women issues, amenities and facilities which require more data from primary sources as secondary data available are limited. For this we will need to circulate the detailed primary survey data to the all paper writers once Centre of Good Governance is able to make the same available to us. All the papers as far as possible will include both the secondary and primary data and bring coherence to the arguements being made.
2. The structure and writing style of the papers should be uniform and for that the paper writers need to keep the following points in mind:
a. The arguments as much as possible should be evidence based
b. The points or arguments drawn from data or logical process should be numbered.
c. All the papers besides stating thr conclusions drawn should also carry recommendations. The authors are requested to logically explain the recommendations, say, such interventions will result in such and such outcomes.
3. There may be a need for additional time for papers to be completed as data from primary survey is expected to be coming late.
4. All the draft papers need to be circulated among the authors so that wherever possible authors can cross reference the papers and avoid repetitions.
5. The commission will provide the needed letters to help the authors get required data from concerned departments and will facilitate the data acquisition process.
6. The draft papers have been already circulated among the advisory board members who would now make their comments on the 5 February meeting.
The meeting ended with vote of thanks from the Chairman.
