Difficulties of Public Authorities.

Recommended Posts

MANOJ B. PATEL

Every PA wants to get out of the clutches of RTI Act. It is viewed by the personnel who are manning it is a cumbersome, inconvenient and unnecessary. As the efforts to get out of Access Law are mounted up, the people should understand the importance of information. In fact,the people did not start using the access right in a very efficient manner, as it should have been. If that begins the association of officers would come out with agitation and processions against the law terming that it was leading to harassment. When they are spending public money why not they are accountable and transparent about it is the moot question. Anybody trying to run away from answering this question should be deemed to be corrupt and interested in autocracy. They do not deserve to be entrusted with fiduciary responsibilities. The strict implementation of law and conscious exercise of the rights by active citizen will further expose the deep rooted interests of the public servants in safeguarding the public information. From this one can imagine how the administration is being run with these people all these years.

Your intention is not clear. Please enlighten us in view of Object of the Act as enumerated in Preamle of the Act itself:

 

An Act to provide for setting out the practical regime of right to information for citizens to secure access to information under the control of public authorities, in order to promote transparency and accountability in the working of every public authority, the constitution of a Central Information Commission and State Information Commissions and for matters connected therewith or incidental thereto

 

 

Whereas the Constitution of India has established democratic Republic;

 

 

And whereas democracy requires an informed citizenry and transparency of information which are vital to its functioning and also to contain corruption and to hold Governments and their instrumentalities accountable to the governed;

 

 

And whereas revelation of information in actual practice is likely to conflict with other public interests including efficient operations of the Governments, optimum use of limited fiscal resources and the preservation of confidentiality of sensitive information;

 

And whereas it is necessary to harmonize these conflicting interests while preserving the paramountcy of the democratic ideal;

      respected viewers and organizers, moderators and all supporters,
       
      i would like to suggest that on web page there should be a place
      "deficulties/harrashment faced while persuing for information through rti act 2005".
       
      the moderators have given a place for success stories, but there are many harrashments/tortures too to applicants and info warriers who want to eradicate corrupt practices using rti act.
       
      more over every success stories definately be having many difficulties and harrashments etc., which also should have equal importance like success.

      hence i request the moderators/organizers to give a place for difficulties/harrashments too on web page.

      Is RTI my fundamental rights? Is there a chance that Government can take away my fundamental rights? What I mean is if there is a change in Government can a new Government take away my fundamental rights like Right to Information.
