my RTI - success - fly over completion

Recommended Posts

user9999

hello,

 

i have been getting lot of help from this forum.

 

thought i will take some time to write my success story.

 

-

we had this long pending flywor work going on in our neighbourhood for close to 3 yrs. it was handled the tamilnadu state highways dept.

filed a strong RTI with the state highways,with 20+ points,back in Jan 2016 and got a satified reply wtih all the details and expected completion by 19th Nov 2016 . guess what, it all happened as stated in RTI and the flyover is now functioning from Dec 2016.

sad part - this construction is in outskirts - and one of my questions was - how many RTI were filed in regards to this construction work - the reply was NONE in the last 3 yrs.

 

I personally feel this as a success, regardless of what impact that my RTI may have caused on the officials involved in the construction.

 

I now have 2 more RTI pending to be sent out - one for another flyover in chennai and the other for some corruption and menace that i could sense at a NATIONAL HIGHWAY TOLL closely to my location. I expect success in ths as well.

Great. Please share your original RTI application, so others can use the same. We never know how useful it can be others to file similar complaints

      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.

      Hello,
      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.
