Land encroachment is a subject related to state government. Only if a land which is under control of central government is encroached then central govt. comes in picture.

In municipal areas it is Municipal Commissioner or Chief Officer of Municipality. You may also approach Chief Secretary of Urban Development Dept of the State.

Govt. Land encroachment is within RTI Purview and even PIL is direct remedy.

For private lands, only Courts can provide remedy.

If the temple belongs to a public trust, PIL can be filed. Generally such encroachment is done with cannivance of insiders.

 

For Encroachment in private land, you may consult a good lawyer and approach civil court.

 

The highest or lowest officers do nothing. You cannot evict encroachment using RTI.

thanks.

raveena - yes it is being done with connivance of a local sitting MLA as far as i understand..

filing a PIL is my eventual target..but want to gather some info and facts from the officilas in writing by way of RTI before i do that

this land falls under town panchayat that is soon becoming a corporation..at the outskirts of city.

so will it still be with the secretary of urban development or is there anything for rural..?

      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?
