Can unhealthy and unsanitary condition be used as Life and Liberty matter ?

Recommended Posts

DineshK

The condition of road in a colony which is maintained by Municipal Corporation of Delhi is really pitiful. (See the picture).

 

People are forced to live in hell like unsanitary and unhygienic condition. Numerous letter to local conciliar, MLA and the MCD department have paid no results. The condition of this road is worsening day by day so much that it may lead to some epidemic. Resident are forced to leave the area as water has entered to their houses. There is knee deep dirty and stinking water on the road making the life of residents miserable.

 

Can a RTI application be filed under "Life and liberty" on this matter ?

Though there was no reply to my above post I filed an application on same day under Life or Liberty matters.

 

The effect could be seen on the next day itself. MCD has fixed three pumps to remove water from the colony. A JCB has arrived to dig up and clear the side drains and I received a personal call from authority that works has started.

That is real good work. I was sceptical that it may not evoke such quick reaction from the authorities. Well done. All the best.

Great job Dinesh. Why don't you upload a copy of your RTI application for the benefit of others. Please do attach another photo on completion of the work by the civic authorities. BTW, I am shifting this thread to success stories.

Resident are forced to leave the area as water has entered to their houses.

Definitely a matter affecting personal liberty. Also affects life since it may result in an epidemic.

Sorry that I could not reply in time. Do file a first appeal if you do not get reply within 48 hours.

Really great work. It would definitely be a grand success story. Best wishes from my side.

Dinesh ji great all these matters are covered by Life and librety . This is the condition of every city ,town. i want to tell one thing that only High officials and powerful politician passes of city and a town are enjoying the life at the cost of 99.9 percent people of the city or town. They are enjoying all the facilities i.e cleanliness sanitary etc. All the offical machinery work for them only those roads are maintained through which they passes .Rest of the public are living the life of hell. They do not have any money for all this but when some high politician come all the money comes and the things are corrected overnight . The officials responsible for all this must be taken to task. I suggest all the members to file RTI application in their cities in bulk.

Thanks Rajeshji for your appreciations. It was your post regarding open manholes that motivated me to file such RTI application.

 

Today it was Sunday but we could see JE, AE and even Executive Engineers of Municipality department personally supervising the work. The local councilor who was seen nowhere till now has suddenly appeared to take the credit of this work !!:)

Such actions motivate all of us ,however,it is seen that some government departments

(like my employer) take the plea that applicant is a habitual seeker of information.

A RTI Activist has to seek information in behalf of hundreds of peoples who dont want to come forward due to some reasons. So they are certainly habitual seeker of information.

 

I have faced the ire of some of the PIOs who blamed me for misusing the RTI Act. But few of them have also appreciated me for making the authorities aware.

Though I filed my RTI application under life or liberty, the PA replied me only after 7 days (That too after I filed first appeal after 3 days) but I am happy that at least they have reacted to my application.

 

The main cause of water logging was due to faulty laying out of water pipeline by Delhi Jal Board which passed through the drain thereby blocking its flow.

 

MCD tookup the matter with Jal Board on urgent basis and Rs. 4 lakhs were approved from MLA fund to layout the waterline at deeper level through trenching. Work is still in progress by MCD and Delhi Jal Board.

Congrats, Dineshji.

 

This proves that information is power.

 

And RTI is the source of equitable distribution of information power in society.

 

I believe this is more effective than 'equal' distribution of wealth.
