Asking questions in RTI


subhendu pattanayak

After depositing a fee I went several times to a public authority to get my certified copy of a case record.When I failed to get it ,i filed my RTI as below:

''What is the time limit fixed by this office for supply of Certified true copy of a case record to the applicant who has deposited fees for this?"

Reply of PIO :"No questions can be asked through the Right To Information Act 2005.This is for your information."

Instead of going to 1st appeal i filed my 2nd RTI :

"Please give me a copy of relevant provisions laid down in " The Odisha Right to Public services Rules-2012" which is applicable for communication to the person applying for any such service under this rule in the event a service is denied or delayed to him."

The PIO answered in the same manner :

"To get such information you should read the book-"Odisha Public Services Rules-2012".This is for your information ."

What is this?Can I accept that my problems are solved?Denial of both the information by PIO sought under RTI Act 2005 is a ipsofacto mockery of the provisions of the so-called transparency Act.

Should I keep silence or take any further steps?

Go for first appeal and expose the PIO to FAA.

As far as information is concerned, you can find in google that information with key words given by PIO.

Then issue a registered notice under CP Act, as you have paid consideration for such certified copies, and there is deficiency of services by authority in providing the services within a given time frame of....days.

Wait for one month and file consumer complaint.

There is NCDRC decision that providing certified copies for a fee is a service.

      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?
