Recommended Posts

For a reality check, TOI correspondent used the privilege of being a woman and sought an early hearing on November 21, 2014, on an appeal filed under section 18 © of RTI Act, 2005, with chief information commissioner. The request pertained to an inquiry on pending RTI queries on funds spend by general administration department (GAD) on RTI awareness in the state. TOI is yet to receive an early hearing.

If I am right, there is no such priority for women in hearing. The priority for Senior citizens and physically disabled is not being looked into by any Information Commissioners.

The news report is about MP SIC....maybe they have such an arrangement for priority hearing to women.

      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.
