    Why all this, when it can make no difference with lethargic officials ?
  5. RTI anonymously

    Make a search either in Haryana SIC appeal decisions or CIC decisions and get his address and telephone no, and if any one is having apprehensions on seeking information on sensitive issues, he volunteers to seek such information in his name and passes it on to those who fears retaliation. This is not personal matters and strictly larger public interest matters.
  6. adding RTI note -

    is ok to add the below to the RTI- will it make it any offensive or irrelavant? Note - this RTI is being filed by a senior citizen. for NO reply received to this RTI with 45 days, a petition/appeal will be filed directly with the state info commission invoking section 18 and 19 of the RTI Act. ----the above is just a message that the information requirement is time critical matter will be moved directly to the SIC without having to go through the first appeal. this is for a local body govt office in tamilnadu to get some land records.

  10. Supreme court order against RTI fee.

    Unless you inform the name of the public authority, the prescribed fee, and fee that was remitted by you, one can not guide. However, if fee is the only reason for rejection, PIO must have rejected the application maximum within 15 days. Now that PIO has not responded within 30 days from date of receipt of your RTI, go for first appeal immediately on deemed denial of information, praying FAA to direct PIO to provide information as expeditiously as possible free of cost. In many of the cases, it was observed when fee is not sufficient, for returning the application it costs them Rs.22/- to get Rs.10/- as fee. Still PIOs do not care for such wastage of postage. While some PIOs provide the information, and write a polite letter asking for prescribed fees. Remember, fee is not mandatory as per DOPT directives, and PIO can provide the information even free of cost. But, the problem is unless RTI fee was paid, appellant can not seek remedy under RTI Act like first and second appeals.

  13. Information regarding NDMC DELHI

    The word 'Register" is being presumed as Information soliciting through RTI Application. Write down information being solicited point wise in brief and not more than A 4, avoid using why, where, when and commence with Please provide....First write on a draft paper as to exactly what you wanted to seek information, that is available in material form. Identify Public Authority Search in website to locate relevant Public Information officer, format of application and mode of remitting fee. Always send application by local speed post, and track the status of delivery and get a screen print and paste to your copy of application. The following is simple format. Application dt.22nd Mar,2018 seeking information under RTI Act filed Before: Public Information officer, New Delhi Municipal Corporation, New Delhi. RTI fee: Postal order No....for Rs.10/- fvg. Accounts officer , MCD payable at New Delhi. Applicant:.....................................................(full postal address) Information solicited. 1 2 3 Applicant.
  14. You can seek such information from Public Information officer, Gram Panchayat. Go through your state Panchayat Raj website to locate PIO, format of application and mode of remitting RTI fees of Rs.10/ First think as to what you wanted to do with that information for four years, as seeking information for RTI sake is not proper, and one should be in a position to use that data/information for arriving to a logical conclusion. Information solicited: 1.Please provide the year wise data from 1-4-2014 to 31-12-18 as follows Nature of work ..Budgeted amount Spent amount Present status ..due date for completion Action initiated
  15. Supreme court order against RTI fee.

    Unless the judgment is seen as to whether prospective or retrospective, it can not be stated. All such RTI rules and regulations come into force after implementation by Public Authority. To be honest, a genuine information seeker, never cares for such nominal expenses being demanded by our own Government. Information is the only focus.

  19. Supreme court order against RTI fee.

    The SC order is not against such Fee, but restricting to Rs.50/-maximum for application and Rs.5/- per copy. Now, the most affected applicants are against Railways where they are charging Rs.1000/- per page of chart and Rs.750/- per one PNR inquiry under RTI. It may take to officially for public authorities to declare such fees through website but applicants those who wish to obtain may pay fee prescribed by SC and can file RTI Applications. Infact, It is not that fee that matters, it is the speed and quality of information that is important perspective of applicants.
  20. land usury -tamilnadu - deed settled

    I do not touch any issue unless I have some fundamental idea on that subject. There are hundreds of instances where Tehasildar's office, Railway stations, river beds, dry tank were sold and mortgaged to Nationalized Banks. One can not find any fault with Sub registrar as his duty is not verify legality and going into the transaction (which is of judicial nature) and his duty is restricted to format and collecting fees. Please do not waste time and money on which you can never proceed legally. Focus on main issue.
  21. File a first appeal on the following grounds: Grounds of First Appeal: With respect to the PIO's reply to the specific points that, Information is available with P & P Branch, IT Branch, Accounts Branch and Interview Cell (hereinafter called "the said Departments" for the sake of brevity). I would like to humbly submit for the kind consideration of the First Appellate Authority as follows: The PIO has informed that the information is not available with his Office / Department but is available with the said departments. In this regard, I would hereby like to draw your Hon’ble Authority’s kind attention to the provision of section 5(4) read with section 5(5) of the RTI Act, 2005, whereby: - As per section 5(4), if the information is not available with the PIO’s Office, nevertheless, it is available within his Public Authority then, the PIO is supposed to seek assistance of such other officer as he or she considers necessary for proper discharge of his duties and thereby access the information from that other Office and provide it to a RTI applicant, and - As per section 5(5), for the purpose of any contraventions of the provisions of RTI Act, such other Officer shall be treated as the PIO. Therefore, given the provision of section 5(4) read with section 5(5) the PIO was supposed to have sought assistance of the Officer of another department of your Public Authority in whose custody the information vide this RTI application, was available. In this regard, please also find the decision of Hon’ble Delhi High Court in CPIO Supreme Court v/s. Subhash Chandra Agarwal & Anr., the relevant except of which has been quoted below and is self explanatory: Quote: Para 23. In view of this, the question of transferring an application under Section 6(3) of the Right to Information Act by the CPIO of the Supreme Court cannot arise. It is the duty of the CPIO to obtain the information that is held by or available with the public authority. Each of the sections or department of a public Authority cannot be treated as a separate or distinct public authority. If any information is available with one section or the department, it shall be deemed to be available with the Public Authority as one single entity CPIO cannot take a view contrary to this. Unquote However the PIO has not invoked the provision of section 5(4) read with section 5(5) to discharge his duties under the RTI Act, as explained above, thus, the PIO has disposed of the RTI application in violation of section 5(4) read with section 5(5) of the RTI Act. 2. With respect to the PIO's reply to point no. 16 of my RTI application, I would like to humbly submit for the kind consideration of the Hon'ble First Appellate Authority as follows: I had sought the result status of the Music teacher post code 207 / 14 vide the advertisement under 02/14. The aforesaid information i.e. the result status, is an event in the past and therefore the information i.e. the result status ought to be available with your Public Authority in the form of documents wherein has been noted the said result status and therefore the information sought by me is very much within the ambit of the definition of information as given under section 2(f) of the RTI Act. Prayers: 1. Kindly direct the PIO to dispose of my RTI application in accordance and in compliance with the provisions of section 5(4) read with section 5(5) of the RTI Act. 2. Kindly direct the PIO to provide with a copy of document wherein has been noted the result status of Music teacher post code 207 / 14 vide the advertisement under 02/14 in the form of documents wherein has been noted such result status. 2. Kindly direct the PIO to provide the requested information free of cost in accordance and in compliance of the provision of section 7(6) of the RTI Act.
  22. Try filing your RTI application with the Public Information Officer of the office of the Chief Electoral Officer of your particular State Government.
  23. Information not provided u/s 8.1(d)

    Once the bid process is over, subject to intellectual property of the bidder, rest all the documents furnished in a tender process can always be disclosed. Please find quoted below the relevant excerpt from a CIC decision: Link to the above CIC decision: Tender Documents to be Disclosed under RTI Kindly file your first appeal with the concerned First Appellate Authority by citing the above CIC decision.
  24. @RoflRavish But the poor people r paying penalty for non-maintenance of minimum balance "" wt a system!!!!!… https://t.co/p6Psr7EbKt

  25. The Public Authority must have maintained a register wherein they must have kept a record of all the employees who have filed the said declarations. If a particular employee has not filed his declaration then the Public Authority must have sent a written communication asking him to do so, and likewise there must be other such documents in this regard. Therefore ask for example: 1. A photocopy of the register wherein has been maintained the list of employees who have filed the said declarations under section XX of the XX Act. 2. A written communication made with the employees seeking their declarations. 3. Any written reminder communications made to the employees with respect to point no. 2 above. 4. Similarly point at other documents which you think may be available with the Public Authority in this regard.

    prasad ji- thanks for the great advise as always but while you look at this n more of a legal perspective. i look this at more into how can this be prevented any further and bring that sub registrar questionable. fortunately, i am not the affected party.and the senior citizen has already been rightly advised to go to court.but the pain they had to gone thrugh,for no fault of hers, and just because of the collusion between the sub registrar and the fraud, makes me only think that i should escalate the matter and expose such officials in some way.
