SIC orders MSU to reply to query under RTI

Recommended Posts


State Information Commission (SIC) has ordered the MS University authorities reply to all the queries that one Ramesh Kadam had asked under the Right to Information Act (RTI) for the Faculty of Performing Arts in November 2006, within 15 days.


As per Kadam, he had applied for detail of electricity connections used for Play Box and open-air-theatre at performing arts faculty. Kadam sought information about why as per the cinema rules, the annual inspection has not been carried out for the two electricity connections between 1999 and 2006. And, what steps MSU took against errant employee and what steps the faculty authorities took when faults were detected in previous inspections carried out in earlier years. Kadam had also asked for copies of power load checking approved plan by assistant electricity inspector.

      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.

      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.
