What is the use ?

DDCA is having ample funds and can file writ against this decision before Delhi High Court.

But one must appreciate HON IC for coming out with such a good decision with very good analysis and undoubtedly decision is a very bold one.

Learned M/s Sabharwal Sir, G L N Prasad Sir & Manoj B Patel Sir,

 

Kindly do enlighten how it is a public authority when two members of three members Bench of Hon'ble CIC has not declared DDCA as a public authority under RTI Act 2005.

 

I am not aware of legal status in such cases where two members decline to take a decision and the third one takes the decision and "body" is declared as public authority under RTI Act 2005.

 

Throw some light with your most valuable insight Sirs.

Please do not misunderstand Hon.Hd.

Let us appreciate any one who takes a lead and support that IC and going into legalities is not our concern. Who ever decides in favour of RTI Applicants and take a bold step, that IC must deserve appreciation. The decision is from a professor of Law University, and when compared with his vast knowledge and understanding of constitution, we are less mortals (we means only myself, and Mr.Manoj alone as we are not well versed in law)

Then you can harp on decision in your favour, as decision has been delivered by most competent professor in law. You may quote/cite the case and to reconsider their decision, as decision was reserved in Nov,14, and they may change their decision/views against this background.

      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.
