Workshop on RTI Act held in Kulgam


Voluntary disclosure of information of immediate relevance to the people under J&K RTI Act can go a long way in reducing the trust deficit between public and the Government, said former Chief Information Commissioner, Wajahat Habibullah at a capacity building workshop for representatives of public authorities and civil society organisations in Kulgam.


Participants recommended the development of schemes to incentivize public authorities, particularly panchayats to make information that is not exempted by the J&K RTI Act accessible to people in a voluntary manner. MLA Kulgam M Y Tarigami said RTI has the potential for empowering people to participate in governance and demand their rights.


Dr Syed Abid Rasheed Shah, DC Kulgam, urged the officers present to pay attention to the spirit of J&K RTI Act while implementing it instead of looking for ways to deny access to information.


Dr Shaikh Ghulam Rasool, chairman J&K RTI Movement and Venkatesh Nayak of CHRI gave a presentation on the guidelines.

      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.

      Can the General Diary of the police station where particulars of "All the details in r/o criminals arrested and entry of arrival/departure of all enrolled police officers on duty with nature of their duties, duty performed and places visited etc."   are maintained be inspected and photo copies sought from a particular police station under RTI?
      Is there any particular clause/section that needs to be quoted for inspection under RTI? Any format available for inspection under RTI?
