RTI on 7th CPC arrears



I want to file an RTI in a university regarding non-payment of 7th pay arrears to the employees of its project Vidyalaya. Here, Kendriya Vidyalaya is a project vidyalaya. The MoU between University and Kendriya Vidyalaya Sangathan states that the expenditure of the Vidyalaya including salary of employees is paid by the university. KVS has issued orders regarding payment of 7CPC arrears which clearly states that the project will have to pay arrears immediately. It has been more than a month but university hasn't paid any arrears till date. I want to ask university-

1. that what are the reasons behind the delay.

2. Steps taken so far for payment of arrears to its project vidyalaya.

3. Norms of the university in respect of paying expenses to the employees of Vidyalaya.

4. Is university following the norms. Reasons for not following norms.

5. why is there always a shortage of funds for the employees of the vidyalaya.

Try and frame your RTI queries in such a way that they point towards documents rather than questions and answers. For example:

Kindly provide a photocopy of the following documents / information:

1. Reasons on record for delay in ....

2. Documents wherein has been noted the steps taken so far for payment of arrears to its project vidyalaya.

3. Documents wherein has been noted the norms of the university in respect of paying expenses to the employees of Vidyalaya.

4. If the said norms (ref. point no. 3 above) have not been followed, please provide the documents wherein has been noted the reasons on record for not following the said norms.

5. Reasons on record for shortage of funds for the employees of the vidyalaya.

6. Similarly ....


Please note that you can only ask for reason on record under RTI and not ask them to provide reasons to you, a PIO is merely a person who has access to all the files / information of the public authority, who will access such files / information and provide you with a photocopy / information. Please refer to the following link to learn more about it:

Now almost every employer has stream lined that calculation through a system and every employer is providing that calculations to employee in most of the cases.  You can seek information in one sentence.

Subject on information sought: Employee Name:        Designation:              No..          worked at..................Payment of arrears on 7th PC  arrears.

1)Please provide the entire arrears calculation sheet the basis on which total  arrears were  arrived.

Search website of University, locate public information officer, format of application and mode of paying Rs.10/- fee.  Experts in the forum always advise employees to get RTI Applications filed through friend or relative from outstation, as employer may not be that soft towards RTI applications from employees.

      As reported by Kunal Purohit at hindustantimes.com on July 30, 2010
      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."

      Hi All.
      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?
