COMPLAINT CASE NO.1941/2015

 

In the aforementioned findings the Hon’ble Supreme Court of India says that the funding has to be substantial to the extent that the body practically runs by such funds but for which the authority would struggle to exist. In the final lines of Para 38 it says that the private Educational Institution getting 95% Grant-in-Aid from the appropriate Government may answer the definition of Public Authority under Section 2(h) (d) (ii) of the Act. The Trust indisputably is availing the 95% grant towards the salary of the staff. It is also admitted a prime land on which the various Institutions are being run has been allotted on a nominal lease. We can foresee that but for the above grants-in-aid and other concessions towards land allotment respondents would not have been able to run the Institutions in its present form. It is thus manifestly clear that the respondents are substantially being financed by the State Government directly as well as indirectly. The Trust in its constituent units as such squarely fits in the definition of a Public Authority under Section 2(h) (d) (ii) of the Act. The respondent Trust, therefore, is hereby declared as a Public Authority under Section 2(h) of the Act and is directed to designate a Public Information Officer and First Appellate Authority besides taking all measures as enshrined under Section 4 of the RTI Act and arrange to furnish the information to the complainant as asked for within a month from the date of receipt of this order positively.

      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?
