Information regarding the total expenses of railway officials for work visits was sought under the RTI Act, 2005, to which the reply from Public Information Officer was a denial.


Mansoor Darvesh, who is a member of Passengers and Traffic Relief Association (PATRA), Creative Thinkers (CT), Welfare Organization for Road Safety and Prevention of Accidents (WORSPA), Bombay Aman Committee (BAC) and The Halai Memon Social Welfare Association, posted a question on March this year to Public Information Officer (Union Railway Minister of India, New Delhi).


“The information is not maintained in the form it has been sought by the applicant. The collection of data from various files and records for the period from January 1, 2010 to December 31, 2014 and compilation thereof is a time consuming exercise and would disproportionately divert the resources at the disposal of the public authority. As such, the information is not warranted in terms of section 7(9) of the RTI Act,” said the reply, undersigned by S.K. Khanna (Section Officer, Railway Board).

Railway department is lazy in completing pending works. In last January top Central Railway officials had visited Thane station to instruct their men to expedite various pending works on station premises as Railway Minister was to visit the area. This is; ' It is too late to dig a well when the house is on fire'!.

      This may not be good news for Vodafone, the company that acquired Hutch, from the Central Information Commission (CIC).
      The CIC on Friday got an assurance from the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) seeking an explanation from Hutch for not acting on the complaint of a RTI applicant ML Aggarwal. The CIC’s decision may open floodgates for RTI applications with TRAI against the mobile service providers.
      Aggarwal, who was being charged for add on services without his consent, filed an RTI application with TRAI seeking eight clarifications. He wanted to know whether Hutch was competent to add arbitrary any amount of charges without any written consent from the customers and number of consumers from whom the money is charged. He also sought information about Hutch officials responsible for collecting the charges.
      TRAI replied that they have issued direction to Cellular Mobile Access Providers that no chargeable value added service shall be provided to a customer without his explicit consent. TRAI also indicated that any value added service, which was earlier provided free of charge should not be made chargeable without the consent of the consumer. However, on information related to the company TRAI clarified that it does not maintain such details about the companies.
      During the hearing at CIC, the appellant Aggarwal informed that despite TRAI’s clarification he was still being charged for the service without his consent.
      The Central Public Information Officer of TRAI informed CIC that Hutch has to carry out the direction issued by TRAI and said they would ‘definitely; take up the appellant’s complaint with the company. "If the case is provide that Hutch has violated, they (TRAI) will take up matter in the court," the CPIO assured CIC, informing that the regulatory body also have a quasi-judicial function.

      In order to educate more and more persons in need of use of RTI 2005,
      I invite all the intellectuals associated with this site to ponder over following initiatives:
      To create an online solution panel of experts with a view to:
      1.Review unsuccessful applications of applicants in need and suggest or re_draft the same for fruitful results.
      2.Suggest social organizations in the reach of applicants who can raise voice on behalf of applicant.
      3.Publish own success stories on the site to encourage people to use RTI.
      4.Communicate with Govt. on the vague parts of the act and bring the result in Public for mass benefit.
