Police filed FIR for filing RTI requesting information about in-laws income tax filing and govenrment welfare schemes

Question

narahari2020

Hello,

My wife filed false dowry cases on me and my parents. The case is in court and we are all participating in the trial. We filed RTI to get information about my in-laws income tax returns, various welfare schemes of Depart of Rural Development in which my in-laws are taking advantage of. We wanted to use this information to show the financial status of my in-laws family in the court when appropriate. The concerned PIOs replied to our RTIs in time with information requested.

 

My wife filed a complaint in police station saying that by filing RTIs to income tax department and Department of Rural development we are harassing her and her family. The police opened FIR.

 

RTI is a fundamental right and we used it to protect ourselves in the court. My wife who is looking for opportunities to file more false cases on us has been very persistent and successful in getting a FIR opened. Please advice whom should I write to help in this regard.

Dear member, you can only represent your difficulties before senior police officer with a request to investigate independently. If you feel that FIR is false and you can prove it then best way is to file W.P for quashing the FIR.

Now you can file RTI Application seeking information from SPIO of that police station as follows:

 

Brief facts: FIR No.........

 

"Please provide me the sections/Acts under which seeking information from Public Authorities amounts to Harassment"

Please inform as to the name of the persons that can be treated as harassed, when information was sought from Public Authorities independently without any link to that third party.

 

Please provide me copy of FIR enabling me to take up the case with appropriate forum.

 

 

Wait for reply and then report to Information Commission and as well to Dist. Supdt., of Police and as well to Human Rights Commission.

Learned Mr Karira Sir,

 

Most humbly beg to differ with you on this. T

 

The Police of India can file FIR (First Information Report) for anything and everything under the sun.

 

In Gurgaon, the Police is contemplating of filing FIR against undersigned for raising the issue of theft of electricity allegedly by Deputy Commissioner of Police (east), Gurgaon as for 28th months as the electricity connection of esteemed office of learned DCP East Gurgaon was without electricity connection but it worked with 4 AC/s, 7 Coolers, 18 fans 742 tube-lights and explanation given was that all of these appliances "worked" on Invertors. When asked how Invertors were charged, the reply was "alternate arrangements" but on reply to undersigned RTI, the learned SPIO cum ACP HQ, Gurgaon informs that there is nothing on record as far as making arrangements for charging the invertors.

 

I am waiting them to file FIR against undersigned for asking information under RTI and make fool of themselves.

 

harinder dhingra.

      Recently PIO of public authority, in a RTI application submitted u/s 6 of the RTI Act, responded to applicant after the stipulated time, you please visit the office of his junior and inspect the file/files, and after inspection of the files obtain the documents by depositing the money itself. Therefore, please provide expert opinions about the issue, as in my opinion no such provision do available to PIO to direct the information seekers under RTI Act. However if applicant desires himself to inspect the files, then option available to applicant to file the RTI application under section 2(j)(I) of the RTI act.

      Seeking information under the Right to Information (RTI) Act can be costly at times. Especially when you are asked to cough up as much as Rs 56,000 for some information, you would probably think again before using the Act.
      Advocate Vinod Sampat, too, was shocked when he was asked by the Andheri Land Records office to pay an amount of Rs 56, 268 to get information on the structures located on collector’s land across the city.
      Sampat had made an application on September 21 to inquire about it. He needed the accurate information to be part of the reference books he is writing on property matters. “I wanted information on such properties because buying properties situated on collector’s land costs an extra amount,” said Sampat.
      “However, I was shocked to see the amount asked by the Andheri office,” he said. And the amount was asked only for information on the properties situated under the jurisdiction of Andheri office.
      A shocked Sampat wrote to the Chief Information Commissioner Suresh Joshi, on Wednesday, asking him to ascertain the amount demanded from him. He also wrote to the Land Records Officer, Andheri, MT Ingle seeking a clarification on how the amount was arrived.
      As per RTI rules, Rs 2 per page is demanded to provide information. “That means they were giving me 28,000 pages as information,” said an amused Sampat.
      He said that if his queries were not answered, he would file an appeal with the appellate authority.
      When contacted, Ingle said he had charged Sampat according to the rates specified by the state government and the revenue department.
      Joshi said that in such cases, it is better for the applicants to ask for the inspection of the files so that they can pin-point the actual documents needed. They can also come in appeal to the commission, he said.
      “The information officers can charge rates only as prescribed by the state government and in this case, it is found that the concerned officer is trying to willfully mislead the people, strict action will be taken,” he added.
      However, Sampat said that the inspection point should have been mentioned in the letter, “instead of just frightening the applicant by demanding such an astronomical amount.”
      “Do you believe that the Land Records office must have counted all the 28,000 pages?”
