Question

rahulmahajan

Respected Senior Members,

 

I had file a RTI with the university for seeking the Plagiarism certificate for the thesis which is submitted in year 2015 . The PIO had Rejected to provide me the information under Section 8(1) (d & j) and i filed the first appeal . The FAA had also rejected to provide me the details stating the same section of RTI act mention by PIO. Stating " information regarding percentage of Plagiarism Checked for the PhD thesis of Women PhD scholar, is of Confidential nature and has no relation ship to any public activity or interest, there information cannot be provided under section 8(1) (d & j) of RTI act"

 

please guide me with the latest judgments to counter this in SIC. and need a format for the SECOND APPEAL too . and need help regarding any judgment related to Plagiarism in which SIC or CIC ordered to provide the copy of same to the applicant.

Go for second appeal whether that certificate required by your is yours or others, as there is larger public interest involved. The certificate was in no way third party information, as no third party provided that certificate, and University obtained such certificate, as per norms laid down and awarded the doctorate. The candidate is not involved

Even if both PIO and FAA think that it is third party information, they should explore the options given in Sec.11 first.

The denial is deliberate and not justified

Members may also explore the procedure being followed in other Universities, and the UGC norms on such disclosure.

      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.

      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?
