RTI to Municipality for non replying of complaint letter / Mass petition

Question

AVIK2015

Hi,

 

Could anyone please help me to draft the RTI?

 

We have filed mass petition / objection letter to the concerned municipality chairman (Dum Dum Municipality) on 6th May 2015. But till now no action has been taken. Municipality Officers are not giving any information/ cooperating with us regarding this issue resolved. Also they are verbally saying that the construction is not authorized without checking their records. They are also not willing to give any written reply of our petition. So I would like to file RTI against them for seeking the information why they are not giving any information to us and not doing any investigation.

 

This is a open secret that the Municipality had taken bribe from the concerned party for the illegal construction. The construction is now at full swine and not a single person has come to investigate the issue.

 

Please help me to write the RTI.

Thank you so much Raveena mam.

 

Mam, I would like to add another point in the RTI application where I would like to ask the municipality why they have not replying to our joint complaint and why the building construction still continued after they received the complaint. Also would like to ask the municipality that if the building planned is sanctioned deviating the building rules, then how will be responsible for the loss if the building demolishes in any natural calamities like earthquake?

 

Please help me to drafting this two lines.

Sr.No. 6 of the suggested query in post no.5 shall take care of this.

 

Also would like to ask the municipality that if the building planned is sanctioned deviating the building rules, then how will be responsible for the loss if the building demolishes in any natural calamities like earthquake?

 

Sr.No. 7 of the suggested query is pointed to this aspect. You cannot, however, raise hypothetical queries to the PIO. Your right is to seek the information held by and under the control of the public authority. Even when the sanctioned buildings get damaged during disasters or natural calamities, the officials of Municipality shall not be responsible.
