HUDA officials do not attend RTI Workshops

Recommended Posts

HUDA Officers are not well versed with RTI Act 2005 thus causing lot of hardships to citizens of Gurgaon who access information under RTI Act 2005. The Hon'ble State Information Commission, Haryana has time and again passed orders for training/attend workshop being organized by HIPA (Haryana Government training institute) but in a reply to RTI query it has been found out that none of its (HUDA) official has attended the RTI Workshop or training.

 

Please find below the news clippings of Hindustan Times English daily dated 24th January 2015 on the same subject.

To me, it appears better if they do not attend workshops as they have some apprehensions about non compliance or on denials of information.

If they, attend, they become more smart and try to find more loopholes to deny information.

(All in lighter vein)

Learned Mr. G L N Prasad Sir,

 

Is it not better that they deny the information instead of non-reply of RTI application at all?

 

They deny the information when the matter is reached at HSIC which means going to Chandigarh and minimum 4-5 months wasted along with money.

 

Sir, it is better to be denied within 30 days than to be denied after 120 days.

 

We are faced with this kind of situation every now and then. With us it is all-right but with common man it is asking for too much and that is why these instructions were procured from HSIC by undersigned on behalf of Aseem Takyar (fellow RTI Activist) and undersigned.

 

I know you commented on lighter vein and I enjoyed it but thought it is my duty to clarify and that is why the above clarification.

 

Thanks for your time Sir,

Sir,

Perception and practices differ. Hyderabad is erstwhile (even now) the capital of AP and education center also. Most of the families of Govt. Officials are put up at Hyderabad. To go to Hyderabad, some PIOs simply deny information, and they can travel with Govt. expenditure, and not even 1% of the PIOs were penalised. I wish to submit that those who are having right attitude learns out of interest by going through books, visiting net and consulting also. I am not sounding negative, but PIOs hell bent that by seeking information that an ordinary citizen is invading their domain and making them answerable . I am stating this by and large. For attending a week workshop they express all personal problems and official responsibilities but they attend atleast one hearing per month of 3 days at Capital. This is general tendency. Further, without any further argument, they complete their submission before IC at Hyderabad, that they have brought the information now, and handing over to applicant before IC. IC is very happy to dispose. Why not the information was provided earlier ? IC never asked this question.

Learned Mr. G L N Prasad Sir,

 

The training is here in Gurgaon (As HIPA is based here) and for hearing the HUDA officials have to go to Chandigarh for which they have to get at 4 AM and start at 5 AM and they return the same day although they can get one day for travelling but during last four years of my RTI experience I have yet to find a case where an official of HUDA Gurgaon has availed that day off for travelling.

 

Unlike Hyderabad, most of the employees have their families here and posting in Gurgaon is very difficult to get and the officers of HUDA in Gurgaon do not want to miss even a day of office in Gurgaon for obvious reasons.

 

Here the situation in HUDA is different and that is why these directions were got issued because it is in HUDA official interest to avoid hearings if they provide information.

 

Hope you understand Sir

      I had sought details of loan and copies of agreement entered with World Bank, JICA etc. of IT Expressway Chennai (created in partnership with Govt of TN) However the PIO has replied that they have moved out of world bank loan and taken loan from other banks details of which cannot be disclosed under 8(1) d of RTI Act citing "commercial confidence".
      However the IT Expressway is a public limited company having entered into agreement with Govt of TN and others for developing and maintaining a particular stretch of road.
       
      Kindly help me frame a good first appeal.

      Hello,
      I require help on co-operative issue. I had filed the RTI with the PIO, Dy registrar of co-op societies seeking information on affairs of society.
      The PIO has replied stating that the information I am seeking is available with co-operative society. My query is:
      1] Can PIO direct an applicant to private body for information?
      2] The society in question comes under the jurisdiction of the PIO, since PIO is public authority and co-operative society a private body, is it not duty of PIO to seek information from society and give it to me? How can PIO direct me back to society? This is RTI application, either I have to appeal or I have to forego. I cannot complaint against reply. So I want to approach FAA, under what grounds can I?
      3] What kind of violation PIO has committed by directing me back to private society? 
      4] Does co-operative society come under the purview of RTI ACt?
      Your views are appreciated. I am fighting lone battle with corrupt system.
