[h=1]Over 37,000 RTI appeals pending with CIC[/h]

New Delhi: Over 37,000 appeals under the RTI Act are pending with the Central Information Commission, the government on Wednesday said, indicating that a lack of time limit for disposal of 2nd appeals by the body is the reason behind the large pendency.

 

 

 

 

As on February 17, a total of 37,935 2nd appeals are pending with the CIC, Minister of State for Personnel Jitendra Singh informed the Lok Sabha in a written reply.

 

 

"As per the Right to Information Act, the RTI applications and first appeals are required to be mandatorily disposed off within 30 days of their receipt. However, no time limit has been prescribed for disposal of 2nd appeals pending with the CIC," he said.

 

 

As on December 31, 2013, 22,097 2nd appeals were pending before the information body. The number stood at 35,854 on December 31, 2014.

Whether it includes complaints and non compliance also is not known. Can any body workout the time approximately taken to dispose those cases with existing ICs at 20 cases per day on average.

Justice delayed is justice denied.

Only if the appeals can also be filed locally in normal courts, they may come down.

Karira Saab should also work out the cost per appeal disposed in the year 2014. How many are disposed in a year, and what is the action plan to bring appeal decision maximum for 6 months should be considered.

Sir,

Is there any grumbling in between them that one is over burdened and some are having very light work so that they can reflect their knowledge and intelligence more in decisions.

Example: IC VS pending are 6027, IC YA 4928 ---whereas IC SA were just 1534.

(This figures may not be correct, as there may be several hundreds diarised and waiting for numbers to be given)

      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.

      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?
