A five-decade-old government document that allowed the current Nizam of Hyderabad to use the title despite monarchy being abolished has gone missing, PTI reported on Monday. Neither the Home Ministry nor the National Archives were able to trace the file when they got a Right to Information query.


In an order, the Central Information Commission said the Home Ministry was “expected to be much more diligent in their record keeping”. An “uncertain and ambiguous reply” cannot be accepted from the ministry, the order said, according to PTI.


The government should form a committee to identify such files of historical importance and hand them over to the National Archives, the order by Information Commissioner Yashovardhan Azad said.

      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.

      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.
