Mumbai Police yet to receive money from Wankhde Stadium for the security provided in the last 17 matchesBy rohitab
Mumbai Cricket Association (MCA) is yet to pay their dues to Mumbai Police for the security provided in the last 17 matches played at the Wankhde Stadium in Mumbai.
Mumbai-based RTI activist Anil Galgali had filed the query under RTI to Mumbai Police asking how much MCA owes to them for utilizing their services. Information provided to Galgali by the police department, raised everyone's eyebrows as amount has crossed Rs 13 crore.
The Public Information Officer and Asst Police Commissioner (Coordination) Tanaji Surulkar provided the information compiled by the Bandobast Division that, including the 3 ICC World Twenty20, Women's World Cup, Test Match, Practice Match & One Day Match, 17 matches were played in Mumbai for which charged amounting to Rs 13,41,74,177, which is still pending for last 62 months.
On top of it, police department has not charged interest to them. The working style of police department not charging interest to MCA has raised several questions.
RBI sought exclusion from RTI: Govt. doesnot finance us!
The Right to Information Act (RTI) covers all bodies owned, controlled or â€˜substantially financedâ€™ by the government. Which should be clear enough, but the Reserve Bank of India didnâ€™t think so. It sought exclusion from the scanner, contending, â€œWe do not come under the Act, as we are the sole financier of the government; the government does not finance us!â€
In response, the Central Information Commission has firmly put the Bank in its place by reminding it that RBI was constituted by an Act of Parliament and was therefore squarely within the lawâ€™s purview.
