Should I file an RTI or not? (RTI against Indian Council of Medical Research)



Dear All,


I am Dharmesh, I worked as a JRF in a research project at National AIDS Research Institute and my project was for 3 years and funded by Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR). the deadline for the project was April 2017. However, ICMR has not released 3rd-year research funds and we are constantly contacting ICMR about the same since November 2015. But, every time they find some bullshit issues and delays our funds. this process is in motion since the last one and half years and I have also not received my salary since then. My total pending salary is about 3 lakhs, and total fund pending is around 5 lakhs. I have all the communications in my email which were forwarded to ICMR by the Institution and by me.


Please give me suggestions, Filing an RTI will be helpful or not? As my institute and ICMR, both are government bodies should I file an RTI against both ICMR and NARI? Will that be useful?


Looking forward to all suggestions,


Thank you,


Dharmesh Samani
