Information under RTI extends to collection of samples of materials.

You have to file RTI Application and seek the work contact, quality inspection certified copies first.

Then collect samples through inspection under RTI, and give a packet of such samples with your signature and seal, and then the packet with you must be sent for Laboratory approved by Government for further tests.

Equipped with adequate evidence on such inferior quality, you can make a complaint, so that there can never be rejection / denial of the complaint.

Tender documents and work contracts must be given under RTI.   If Public Information officer refuses to provide, go for first and second appeals under Life and Liberty clause.  (The inferior quality of UG may endanger lives of residents).

Filing of RTI applications for satisfying ego or through abetment of insider politics or to threaten is different from larger public interest.  lot of perseverance is required in exposing such scams.  Only those with mental strength, power, money, time can only take up such fights and think of your skills before exposing such corruption.  Sacrifices are needed to become Activist and the threats may spread to family members also.

If you are genuinely concerned take it up as a group and never on individual basis.  Enlist support of insider and expert in Civil Engineering .

Sorry, I do not get the present position.  I am also not to competent to grasp any thing from the images.

Have you filed RTI Application ?  If the information provided is not saitsfactory, escalate  it to first appeal.

If you have filed complaint ,  then file RTI Application seeking information on action taken on your complaint.

If there is no response, give a detailed complaint to Vigilance dept., under copy to concerned Ministry.

Leap into some type of action.  Once it is decided that they are not going to open up, nothing can be done now.  By the time it comes up for second appeal hearing, it may take two years minimum and by that time, the entire work must have been completed and bills paid, then there is no further use.

Carefully consider what best can be done in limited time before the construction is completed.

Think of practicability and value other's time also.  Contact a local activist as this forum has given list of such activists.  Here expertise and the  correct process  to expose them is most important.  Always make a collective effort by forming a  local group and share such responsibilities.

      Hi
       
      We the resident of Charkop , want to know some things about RTI.
       
      We have made number of complaint to BMC , MHADA about bad road in our lane. The sewage water is overflowing due to lack of proper drainage system. There are no street lights.
       
      The street has approximately 12 buildings & almost 100 flats each.
       
      Appreciate how we can file RTI & to whom.
       
      Thanks

      hi dear all, I am a new arrival here. I have just had a glance of questions and your valuable answers. It is worthy of hundred dictioneries. Now I have a problem with my CHS, that's why I am here. In my upper floor apartment, the new member started renovation, complete marble flooring after removing the tiles, and alteration in the bathroom. Our bldg. is 30 years old and it does not look very healthy. Before this, the old member in the upper floor renovated the flat only 2 years ago by changing completely the tiles in the bath room where I had faced leakage problem. However, after the old members work, I had not faced any leakage problem from his toilet and bathroom, for which I paid 50 percent of the expenses and supervised the work. Now the new member is completely changed the flooring system, several cracks appeared in my ceiling as well as water dripping near the beam when they removed the tiles and started the work. I complained this to this upper floor flat owner, then he and his contractor promised me that the present leakage is a teporary affair and it will stop but his promise was without any guarantee. Since I plastered and painted my flat only two years ago, they have now defaced my ceiling with cracks and leakages and they are not willing to fill the cracks or ready to paint the ceiling. I have taken up this matter with my society, but the society is not willing to help me. They said the leakage problem inside, so these problems to be settled by parties concerned and society will not interfere into this, even after he made an alteration in the bathroom with the option of european closet and to this he made a big hole in the rear wall of the bldg. I made a complaint in writing to the society and secretary promised he will convene an emergency meeting. But in the meeting neither the members not even the secretary turned up. Now the secretary is asking me to complain individually either to police or municipality. As I fear damage to property and loss to life because of these newly developed cracks, it is an issue of the society as the new member had tampered with the original work. In this case, to whom should I complain for the redressal of my grievances, whether to the registrar or municipality.
