    How to Stop Corruption ?

    By ashakantasharma

    How to Stop Corruption?  Corruption is one of the most disruptive problems faced by the world and it needs to stop without further damage to the humanity so as to have a better future for the coming generation. Corruption is a disease, a cancer that eats into the cultural, political and economic fabric of society, and destroys the functioning of vital organs. In the words of Transparency International, “Corruption is one of the greatest challenges of the contemporary world. It undermines

    What are some of the shocking, weirdest, silliest RTI requests made in India?

    By ashakantasharma

    What are some of the shocking, weirdest, silliest RTI requests made in India? As Abraham Lincoln said “Government is of the people, by the people, for the people” The government is our servant and we have no duty to explain why we seek information from them. The government holds all the information in our behalf, in trust. Like a banker can’t ask you why you want to see your bank account statement, similarly the government can’t deny if you ask them how they are governing our country.

    Four Biggest Mistakes you can avoid in your RTI Application

    By Priya De

    The Right to Information Act 2005 empowers every citizen to ask for information from Government Organisations. This information can be about your own personal case or more complex Government Policy. The Act also empowers us to take photocopies of the Government records and also online data in a form of CD. However, often PIO being Government Servant who perhaps is also the custodian of the information has a conflict of interest in giving out such information. Every Government Official at on

    PIO Acts that makes you hate RTI ACT

    By Priya De

    How many times have you been asked to inspect the document when you have never requested? Ideally, if you have not applied for inspection of the document and the information requested is not voluminous, PIO should not ask the applicant to come for inspection of the document. PIO Acts that makes you hate RTI ACT But naturally, it is not the way. It is an easy way for PIO to first Get to know who is an actual RTI Applicant Intimidate the applicant by various means E

    Kindly do not worry about the exemptions at the stage of filing a RTI application.

    By Sunil Ahya

    Kindly do not worry about the exemptions at the stage of filing a RTI application, as reasoned below:   As per section 7(1): A PIO is supposed to either provide the information on payment of such fee as may be prescribed or reject the request for any of the reasons specified in sections 8 and 9   (Which means a PIO is supposed to either provide information or deny it under section 8 and 9). As per section 19(5): In any appeal proceedings, the onus to prove that a den

    I have seen in XXXX from last 5 year that they do not pay for overtime. People even stretch from normal 9 hours work or sometime they come full day on Saturdays and Sundays but still they do not pay a single penny. while as per government rule an employer cant ask a employee to work more than 48 hours in a week. while asking company and other employees they says that it is company policies not to pay for overtime or in case you stretch for more than 9 hours. So my question is why such an MNC is not following government rule. Is it mandatory to follow this government guideline? Please provide me clarification. Thank you!

    Sir, In response to the above I have received today a letter from the Sarpanch, Gram Panchayat,Mahilawas which was posted on 16/07/2013 but they put the date of letter as 20/06/2013. they write that If any information or copies of documents I require I have to go to the office personally and I can see the required documents their. Where as I required the information by written letter or copies of documents. as per RTI is it right to call personally and not give copies by post even as I had send required charges by bank draft ? the information given is also unsatisfactory and they write only for formalities. now what should I do to get the information effectively.

  10. Solidarity with Rajan Ghate

    If CM Shri Manohar Parriker believed in his own words “Transparent and accountable corruption free administration” he would have had appointed Chief Information Commissioner and State Information Commissioner much earlier in July 2012 itself.

    CM’s approach to the issue is so careless that his last two appointees were mentally and morally so weak that silly blemish such as ‘passed SSC on second attempt’ or ‘no knowledge of law’, these people backed out even after strong backing from CM.

    When National RTI activist Shri Rajan Ghate announced in 1st Rural RTI Convention at Madkai on April 21, 2013 his intention go on indefinite hunger strike CM assured in Goa Assembly on April 23 to start process within a week and to appoint CIC and SIC within one month.

    As promised he invited application/recommendation for both post within a week but time given to submit was 25th May 2013, beyond one month from April 23. No procedure of selection was announced nor specified in advertisement. No transparency.

    Goa RTI Forum held Dharna on Revolution Day June 18, 2013 in protest of non appointment of CIC and SIC. CM announced 3 member pre selection committee headed by chief secretary and comprise principal secretary (PWD) and secretary (Information & Publicity) as members. This committee was notified on June 29, 2013.

    The mandate of the committee will be to go through the applications received for the two posts, shortlist the names and to present its report to the government within two weeks of its constitution. The names recommended by the pre-selection committee would then be forwarded to the selection committee, headed by the chief minister, which will decide the appointees.

     

    Shri Rajan Ghate started his indefinite hunger strike for appointment of CIC and SIC at the earliest on July 16, 2013 at Azad Maidan, Panaji.

     

    As per RTI Act three member team headed by The Chief Minister should recommend the names of SIC and SIC to Governor. Other two members are Opposition leader and one Cabinet Minister. CM in his reply to to a query in his press conference on Wednesday July 17 2013, for the first time announce Dy. CM Shri Francis D’souza is the third member of the top level committee. However, if name of the Cabinet Minister is required to be notified is not yet notified. He further announced the date for top level committee meet in such a manner that some news papers reported it as 26 July others reported as 29 July.

     

    Sue moto disclosure is the key to transparent administration. However, CM Parrikar is not ready to disclose information unless you hold his nose. S

     

    Show your solidarity with Rajan Ghate. Let us all put pressure on government. Join Rajan Ghate at Azad Maidan, Panaji.

    Looking for your suggestions and process..

     

    I had a BSNL broadband plan in Pune which I got it disconnected in August 2012.

    But after following-up, till date I'm unable to get any response from them on refund of security deposit.

     

    Pls. suggest how shall I proceed further. As I have another connection, again in pune at different house which I'm going to surrender soon.

     

    This will double the amount.. but don't know shall I pay the bill for this month or leave it.

    Or shall I file an RTI application, so what is the process.

     

    Regards

    Pankaj

    Hello sir!

    My Details as below

     

    Service Required

    Application Reference Number: 13-0007896608

    Applying For: FRESH

    Type of Application: TATKAAL

    Type of Passport Booklet: NORMAL

     

    I had applied for fresh passport in tatkal scheme and i got appointment date 12/07/13. I had all the documents as required in DOCUMENT ADVISER section for tatkal scheme.my reporting time was 9:15 am.

    when i reached to the officer who is third party employee(TCS) he reject my document only for 'Annexure-F' , but in the document list this document is in either or condition with 3 of 16 documents. (I have attached the list image please see it)

    Then i referred to his TL and he was also denying that list is updated on server, then he referred me to APO and APO told me that

    I am not wrong and I have all the documents but Annexure -F is required now.

    My question is, if such documents are required for this important identity proof then why should you have not updated over the server.

    I had traveled 500 km whole night and within 5 minutes i have to go back without my fault or for others mistake. APO suggested me to go and complaint about issue to the regional office, but why should now? and why are you seating their?

    Many persons applying online and getting frustrated. if TCS cant update any information time to time then why they are getting money from government?

    another thing is, if someone wants to complaint against passport division, where should he will complaint in their site. their is nothing any complaint section why? and who is monitoring such issues?

    We are the Central Government Branch Office in Chennai working under our HO at Kolkata. One of our officer in Group-A (HAG Level) had gone to CAT for withholding his promotion without issuing even a Charge-Sheet and finally got the verdict in his favour. A publication of this news had also appeared in one of the Daily English Newspaper.

     

    On seeing the newspaper article, an Applicant has approached our Chennai Office to give him the copy of the verdict along with connected documents under RTI Act.

     

    Whereas, our Chennai Office is not having any document as the case was dealt centrally by our HO.

     

    At this juncture, whether the requirement of the Applicant can be dealt as follows:-

     

    1. As no documents are available in Branch office, can we direct him to appeal to our HO;

    (or)

    2. Should we forward his application to our HO as in line with RTI Act?

    (or)

    3. Can we straightaway say that the documents are not available with us and hence cannnot

    be furnished?

    (or)

    4. Being the third party information, can we ask the Third Party for his concurrence? But,

    this being the Public Case and also published in the N/Paper - can we say it is a third

    party information? More so, judgements are appearing in the Compendium and hence

    cannot be said as a Third Party or personal information. Here, the third party is not

    willing to share the information.

     

    Kindly clarify please.

  16. My friend, who works in a State Government, complained to me that some people deliberately been filing RTI applications seeking about the personal information of several officers of his department. He is fed up with attaining such information seekers, which has no public interests. He listed out following questions:-

     

     

    i) Details of appointment of xyz.

    ii) How appointment was made.

    iii) educational qualification of an officers.

    iv) How promotion was given?

    v) Recruitment Rules?

    vi) Personal File and etc...

     

    I request the experts to kindly suggest, can above questions of RTI, is within the purview of the RTI Act.

    Secondly, the applicant's right is no where affected?

    Thirdly, can such information be denied under Section 8 of RTI Act 2005,

    I had an account with HDFC Bank Wagle Estate, Thane.

    They assured me that since they are newly opened they will waive all Cash Deposit Charges to me, and they did so for the month of Dec 2012.

     

    After that they (the manager there - Mr. Pradeep Mahor) has constantly verbally confirmed to me that the charges though charged will be reversed.

     

    Now that they have backed out from their commitment, I have asked them for all concerned calculations and my average balance, and what percentage has your bank charged me?

    To which I am getting no reply, and their grievance cell has replied that we will not be able to answer these details...

     

    Do i have to accept this ridiculous answer, or can i take this matter up and demand an answer through RTI from HDFC or RBI ?

     

    Await some guidance, as I am new to this Right to Informations Act and its methodologies.

     

    Thanks

    Chetan Dhowan.

    Section 2(f) of RTI Act 2005 provides for providing information held by the public authority.

    The public authorities through its PIO's can not create any information to their own liking.

    In a matter decided by IC VS to provide information, the PIO has denied the information from records but has created and provided his own version. Can this be considered as NON COMPLIANCE of the Order under RTI Act 2005.

    NEED GUIDANCE IN THE MATTER-- THANKS
