  2. Absolutely fine, but unless "we the people" start shouldering /contributing our bit in "Good Governance" things cannot change for Good. The Preamble in the RTI Act-2005 is a valid statement - (1) access information to promote transparency and accountability in working of public authority, (2) Democracy require informed citizenry, (3) transparency & accountabiliy to contain corruption, (4) hold Governments and the instrumentalities accountable.

    Informing about fee to applicant

    There was no such 'extra' clause in RTI. Any request for any information in the form of certified copies are maximum 30 days from the receipt of such application excluding the days in between demand receipt and receipt of such fees by PIO. As the amount is being paid is actual to our own Govt , one should not bother about few days delay and as information is the focus the demanded fees are being paid without arguments but pointing out the law and paying under protest for the sake of formality.

    Informing about fee to applicant

    What is the time limit to inform RTI applicant about the extra fee for extra pages.
  7. The mere mention of RTI Act or questioning on such quality triggers irritation among authorities. In India, we believe God , destiny etc., and those who are fortunate can find PIOs with good attitude.
  8. The citizen would not use the RTI Act-255 route to write to the Public Authority for taking actions against the PIO/FAA. He would write a normal letter accusing for deriliction of public duty
  9. It is not possible to sit on a carpet and count the strands. Like in a court, every one tries his luck to get information. Most of the information may help in personal problems and information on those of public interest matters denial is not real concern of the citizen. Those who are powerful, influential may use this as weapon on opponents, nothing else. The commission should think of the noble objective and the benefits to government with that information, rather than enjoying the benefits for their earlier favours to Government. You can count very few commissioners that have since
  10. Since senior officials of public authorities and officials are inclined to beat the provisions of RTI Act as their sins coming out on surface by way of disclosure of information. Further the role of Central Information commission and it's functories doing the role of catalyst by diluting the provisions of section 18 of the Act. 98% decisions pronounced pertaining to diluting the Act and in advisory to PIOs.
  11. There is no separate format for application for Inspection. The form of seeking information may vary. Ex Information solicited in the form of Inspection. 1.Please provide me opportunity of inspecting the files and I will be identifying and marking the documents required by me for issuing certified copies after such inspection. The following files are required for inspection. i ii
  12. There are several conflicting views. 1.The Madras High Court has ruled that irresponsible PIOs should be shown the door. 2.CIC and HC judgment states that a Citizen is entitled to information alone and he is confined only for prayers and other action against PIO are at the discretion of IC. 3.FAA is beyond all, and in one HC Judgment, the HC has withdrawn the strictures passed as there is no such clauses and responsibilities were entrusted in RTI Act. As our Great Guru Mr Karira has stated 5 years back, the Act is on Ventilator with artificial breathing, with some remote s
  13. (1)The PIO's and FAAs are public servants under their respective public authorities and they carry out out the functions of PIO and FAA as part of their assigned duties in addition to their prescribed functions as per their functional designation of the cadre. (2)As the PIO and/or FAA carry out these duties as part of their assigned responsibilities, whether such performance becomes part of their Annual Performance Record? (3)In case of poor performance of PIO/FAA ( abuse & violation of RTI-Act-2005, failure to provide info within prescribed time lines, provides info only after

    Obc certificate

    First of all PIO can not provide that information which is exempted under RTI. Caste is a personal information and this may amount to invasion on privacy. However there is no bar for a citizen in seeking information from public authorities under RTI Act. The applicant must go for such larger public interest involved and establish this to satisfaction of PIO. In other words you can seek such information.....Your query is answered. The query you have not asked is whether PIO can provide such information. The reply is NO, he can not provide such information and applies

    It seems you have raised further queries as a report to the aforesaid blog. I would request you to please raise your queries in this thread itself. Can you please inform as to which address did you file your RTI application?
  22. Kindly file a first appeal by citing section 6(1) of the RTI Act. Please find the relevant excerpt from section 6(1) quoted below (emphasis underlined): As one can see from the plain language of section 6(1) of the RTI Act, a RTI application can be filed either in English OR in Hindi OR in the official language of the area. Therefore, it is up to a RTI applicant as to in which, one out of these three language options, he would prefer to make the RTI application.

    Did you get a reply to your RTI application? If yes, then the reply should have the particulars of the First Appellate Authority. If No then please refer to the blog on the following link as to how to file your first appeal:
  24. You are mistaken, RBI is a controlling authority and the information with them will be Bank wise (Branch wise, Bank consolidation) He must be an income tax assessee, as only for tax exemptions PPF is opened.

  25. My father-in-law (expired since 2010) had at best left a paper trail of investments done, but nothing concrete. In the past 1 year (since I am recently married in the family) I've managed to trace Shares, Bank Accounts & Insurance; but the only thing left is PPF in my Mother-in-law's name. But due to no paper trail here, except a mention to my wife (his daughter) about the same in 2007, I do not know where to check, Post Office / SBI / Some other bank. So since I do not know which Organisation he made the investment in (let alone the branch), can I file a RTI directly with RBI since t
