Now, RTI in school textbooks

Recommended Posts

Mumbai, October 19: It was Maharashtra’s law that served as a model for what is today the Right To Information Act. No wonder the state is now leading the way to introduce this sunshine legislation to the younger generation.

 

Come June 2007 and the Maharashtra State Board of Secondary and Higher Secondary Education will become the first to include RTI in the school curriculum. Civics textbooks for class VI will include a section on RTI, its uses and benefits, while class X students will get to familiarise themselves with the practical aspects of preparing RTI applications as a part of their annual project work.

In class VI, RTI will be a part of the section on citizens’ rights and not a full-fledged chapter unlike other Acts like the Consumer Protection Act, which is a separate chapter in the class X economics textbook.

 

“Today, everyone has the opportunity to use RTI. To help in greater awareness, it is important to begin at a young age,” said State Board Chairman Vasant Kalpande.

 

“There will be no technical jargon used and we will give the students a glimpse of the fundamental nature of the Act,” Kalpande said.

      Can the General Diary of the police station where particulars of "All the details in r/o criminals arrested and entry of arrival/departure of all enrolled police officers on duty with nature of their duties, duty performed and places visited etc."   are maintained be inspected and photo copies sought from a particular police station under RTI?
      Is there any particular clause/section that needs to be quoted for inspection under RTI? Any format available for inspection under RTI?

      The person in the article below is me. I had a corporation official visit my house with the RTI and asking for my whereabouts. However the PIO has sent a reply on 8/5/19  stating that AE Div 170 is the person responsible for inspecting the banners on the particular stretch. It is after finalising this reply that I had got a call from AE Div 170 on 8/5/19 evening and a person visited my house on 9/5/19. The reply sent by PIO dated 8/5/19 was received on 11/5/19.
      Further The AE has stated that he has inspected the stretch and removed illegal banners immediately. However I have material evidence that the banners remained in the same place from afternoon till late night. Only the persons who kept the banner had removed them. So can I penalise the PIO for providing false and incorrect information.
