Damaged road repaired with RTI weapon

Recommended Posts

Hi,

y

The road condition was very bad in our area. So I made a complain at 155303 (toll free number of AMC) reagding that.

 

After 2or 3 days, I received an Sms in my mobile indicating that your complain number xxx has been closed. I was very surprised as there is no any work done by AMC. I called the customer care again and asked them why my complain closed ? The customer care lady replied me that the responsible person who had closed your complain has made a remark that "Work done" ! I requested the lady to reopen my complain and it was again closed without taking any action. The same thing happened 4 times. Even I met AMC officer personally. He told me that the road repairing work will be done after the next budget.

 

I posted the question in our RTI forum about filing an RTI for damaged road and got reply from Manoj Patel and somebody JP 50 with some useful links.

 

I filed an RTI and surprisingly I got a call from RTI officer saying that come to the AMC office, we'll sort out your problems. Now road repairing work has been done by them.

 

Now I think that RTI is only the useful tool to get our work done from any government Department.

Always use the RTI as a Tool to find useful information in public interest and not as weapon to settle scores.

Yes, you are exactly right sir. Now a days, in Himachal Pradesh RTI Act is fast turning into a weapon for government employees to settle professional scores.

      RTI has the potential to drive social change through collaborative, community-led and Data -informed public policies.

      In Sept 2013 two retired professors of Junagadh Agricultural University approached me for solution to their problem, as they were paid commutation of pension by applying wrong formula. Matter was lingering from 2007, despite various representations to University. I prepared RTI for University, which passed on the bucks to Directorate of Pension and Provident Fund, Gandhinagar, Gujarat for not providing guidance in the matter. I prepared another RTI to the said directorate, which then provided University with detailed guidelines and correct formula. By Feb 2014, University paid arrears not only to these two professors, but nearly 400 other staff ranging from Rs.25000/- to Rs.135000/-, based on correct formula
