Now It is being rumored that Central Govt., is giving a free hand to Municipalities (Like in Delhi Corporation) to legalise all structures as one time measure to augment the resources by levying huge fines depending on economic status of owner.

(In AP it is being callsed as Building Regularisation scheme. Buildings at a given point of time is being recorded through google and for those constructed as on that date will be approved after collecting hefty fines. Though they say it is one time measure, it is the third time in a decade)

High Court of Calcutta has ordered in 2014 that the Calcutta Municipal Corporation (CMC) has no authority to legalise unauthorised construction in exchange of a fine.

 

The court had added that any construction declared illegal should be pulled down within four weeks.

 

Referring to Section 400 of the Calcutta Municipal Corporation Act, 1980, Justice Saumitra Pal said the act stated that the civic authority “would have to demolish any construction made in violation of a plan sanctioned by it”.

 

The court added: “This act and the CMC Building Rules, 2009, do not authorise the civic authority to regularise an unauthorised construction against payment of a retention fee fixed by it.”

      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.
