No pubic representation in NOIDA authority board: RTI by Ranjan Tomar

Recommended Posts

Noida authority comes with a response that no elected representatives (MLA/MP) nor a nominated member of the society (RWAs/residents) is allowed to sit in any board / internal meetings of the authority as there's no provision for the same in authority board. The authority's response came in reply to an RTI (a copy of which is with TOI) filed by advocate Ranjan Tomar, a local citizen asking whether public representative or nominated member can participate in authority meeting held to decide policies for the city.


Tomar filed the said RTI (number 21219) on Dec 28, 2017 to which authority replied on Jan 29, 2018 and received by Tomar on Thursday (Feb 8).


"The authority's response to my RTI (number 21219) clearly states that Noida citizens, be it elected representatives (MP/MLAs) nor a nominated member of the society (RWAs/residents), have any right to sit in meetings of Noida Authority wherein the future of Noida is discussed," said Tomar who adds that there are 81 villages in and around Noida, apart from its many residential sectors. "How can there be no public representatives, legislators, MPs' participation in authority board meeting?" questions Tomar.

      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.
