GURGAON: For over four years now, HUDA has not undertaken the routine cleaning of several overhead and underground drinking water reservoirs in various sectors, an RTI has revealed.



The RTI was filed by activist Aseem Takyar. The reply by HUDA's division-II, received on February 12, revealed water tanks in sectors 21, 22, 23 and 23A, have not been cleaned since 2011. They are normally expected to be cleaned once every year. Besides, an overhead tank in Sector 18, underground water storage tanks in sectors 3, 5, 6, 12, 12A, 21, 22, 23, 23A and Electronics City have not been maintained or cleaned since mid-2013.

Any PIL before HC on such failure harming the health of General Public as a sequel to such information ? This is the real lacuna in the process. Simply seeking and obtaining information is not the end and it should be further dragged till a logical conclusion/remedy is arrived . What is the use of such information if it serves no purpose ? Who is accountable for the lapse and accepts responsibility ? (Normally whever drinking water is being provided even in small water coolers, generally they mention date of cleaning and next due date of cleaning. Inspite of computerisation and getting the information through manual diary and supervision, even simple things are being neglected.)

      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.

      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.
