Ministry refused to act as persec 6(3) of RTI Act saying that they can not do the Postman work of others.By p.esakkimuthu
The RTI Act provides for transfer of information u/s 6(3) if the information is/are held by other PIO/PIOs. I asked 15 infromations from the Ministry of Finance. Out of these 15 informations, 12 informations are to be answered by other ministries.Whether the Ministry of Finance is leagally liable to transfer the 12 informations to other PIOs u/s 6(3) of the RTI Act. The inance Ministry refused to act as persec 6(3) of RTI Act saying that they can not do the Postman work of others.What is the position with regard to this aspect.
My 2nd appeal with the CIC bearing F No. CIC/AT/A/2008/00437 dated 31.10.2008 was disposed off by upholding the decision of the AA in not furnishing information. The decision of the CIC is misplaced and facts have been ignored. I requested for a copy of the preliminary hearing held against me and a copy of file notings leading to my suspension from services. Enquiry was completed way back in July 2007. My application was kept pending 10 months despite reminders. An amount of Rs 100 was collected after revalidation of the Demand Draft. The first appeal was heard on 16.11.2007 and disposed off on 12.03.2008. So many lapses. But the Information commissioner relied on a judgement which is dissimilar to my circumstances viz., V K Gulati vs DG Vig, Customs and Central Excise; CIC/AT/2007/01508 has been relied upon by the Information Commissioner. In V K Gulati's case the disciplinary proceedings were underway, whereas in my case the Disciplinary Authority, on a sworn statement, in the Hon'ble High Court of AP has disclosed that the disciplinary proceedings were completed. So how can the IC depend on dissimilar instances. Further the respondents had filed a written submission to the CIC in reply to my 2nd appeal. Am i not entitled for a copy of the same before the actual hearing held. Therefore under such circumstances I want to appeal against this order. I dont want to go the Judicial Courts since they are time and money consuming. Can anyone of you enlighten me on this. What should i do now.
