DDCA licence fee for Kotla just 1 pc of market rate?

 

DDCA pays a nominal licence fee of Rs 24.64 lakh per year for the Feroz Shah Kotla ground, which is just about 1.4 per cent of the presumptive fee of 16.74 crore per year if the value of the land is taken at commercial rates, the Central Information Commission has pointed out.

 

Refraining from passing an order declaring the Delhi and District Cricket Association (DDCA) a public authority under the RTI Act, the CIC agreed, however, that the cricketing body was receiving concessions on licence fee for the land which is of "material/of considerable value" and without which it would struggle to exist.

Neither Board of Cricket Control for India (BCCI) nor its franchises like Delhi District Cricket Association (DDCA) can claim to be above the law and deny accountability. When the government gives state land at concession to these bodies, they are public bodies. The rate of the land should be revived and its commercial value assessed from time to time and proportionate lease should be collected from the allottees.

      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.

      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.
