RTI throws light on spending by Delhi & Uttarakhand CMs

Recommended Posts

Sajib Nandi

In an evidence of politicians inviting greater public scrutiny now than ever before, two applications under the Right to Information Act have surfaced regarding some miscellaneous expenditure by the chief ministers of Delhi and Uttarakhand.


Filed by RTI activists, the applications sought to know the expenditure incurred by the CMs on refreshment served at their offices and official residences. In the case of Delhi, expenditure on medical reimbursement and petrol/maintenance of the official vehicle was also sought.


The Delhi government has informed RTI activist Rohit Chaudhary that office of the Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal, spent a total of Rs 1.03 crore on refreshment across a period of 34 months. The time-line stretches from 14 February, 2015 – when Kejriwal assumed office – to December 2017.


In Uttarakhand, office of CM Trivendra Rawat has spent a total of Rs 68,59,865 on refreshments ever since Rawat assumed office on 18 March 2017. Thats an average of Rs 6.23 lakhs a month.

      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.
