The next time you are told to park your car outside the building when you visit your friend's home, you don't have to obey. You can demand that the housing society allow you to park in the visitors' slot.
If it does not have provisions for visitors, you can go to the local municipal office and file a complaint against the society for violating rules.
In an instance that highlights a little-known aspect of the Development Control (DC) Regulations, 1991, the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) on July 15 ordered a society in Kandivli to mark parking spaces for visitors.
The reason: Section 36(2) of DC Regulations makes it a must for every residential building in the city to reserve space for parking visitors' vehicles.
In the island city, the reserved space is 25 per cent of the building's total parking area, while in the suburbs it is 10 per cent.
The BMC's order came after Sunil Ahya, who owns a flat in Gokul Nagari society, stumbled upon the rule following a parking dispute that led him to ask for his building's approved plans.
"The builder had claimed there were two parking lots for visitors as it was a must," he said.
Ahya filed a complaint with the BMC and made queries under the RTI Act after which the R-south ward directed the society to mark parking spaces for visitors. Ward officer Sanjog Kabre confirmed the BMC order.
Advocate Vinod Sampat, president of Co-operative Societies Residents & Users Association, said: "If a visitor is refused parking, the visitor can take the managing committee to court."
I live in "Mahendra Enclave" Colony which is in Ghaziabad UP. It is surrounded by two colonies called "chiranjeev vihar" and "shastri Nagar", These both colonies are GDA authorized colony. But my colony "mahendra enclave" is not authorized, its an unauthorized colony. Here in my colony the drainage system is very bad, road are having pathetic condition, bad electricity supply.
So my questions is can I use RTI for these problems in my city?
Can i file RTI against GDA or Nagar Nigam?

Dear Friends,One more success story of RTI.I came to know that One of the nationalize bank IS paying less Special Family Pension to widow of Army Major died in service in 1986. The widow of the late Major granted Special Family pension for life but the SFP has not been revised as per the guide lines issued by the PCDA(P) SINCE 1-1-1996 by Bank. I have taken up the matter with Bank branch and found that pensioner is getting one third of her entitlement. I have taken up the case with CGDA,PCDA(P) Allahabad and they clarified that bank is paying less pension and issued the letter for payment of correct pension w.e.f. 01-01-1996, meantime I filed RTI and asked the bank to provide the pension drawn statement of the pensioner w.e.f to 1-1-1996 to 1-1-2015 but it was surprised that bank inform under RTI that the pension record of the pensioner for the period 1-1-1996 to Feb 2004 is not traceable, I filed another RTI and asked some quarries with reference to PUBLIC RECORD ACT 1993. Now bank sent me the calculation sheet of due drawn statement of the pensioner, The total arrear comes out Rs. 15,80,000.00 ( Fifteen Lac Eighty Thousand ) but I found that bank calculations is wrong.In my RTI I also asked the Compensation policy of the Reserve bank Of India .If it proved that the bank fault then bank has to pay compensation @ 8% interest to the customer without asking the customer.I also thanks Mr.Karira, Raveena_O, S.K. Mishra for their help.I have also filed FAA of the bank.RTI Zindabad.SHARMA_PNB
