Sir, 

Am sharing some relevant files with you as requested. All of them can be quoted.

Also sharing with you the draft of the RTI- you can refer to the life and liberty clause as stated below. This is for ready use.

Best Regards,

Andy

 

Public Information Officers, Please note:

If you wish to deny any of the above items or part thereof, please give reasons for such rejection citing the proper subsections of Section 8, 9 or 11. This is required as per Section 7 (8) of RTI Act.

Your Kind attention is invited to the following: -

1)      Clause 7(1) of the RTI Act wherein it has been clarified that the information concerning life and liberty is to be provided within 48 Hours.

 

2)      Recent decisions of the Central Information Commissioner in following cases wherein the CIC has decided that information on Pension Matters is to be treated as concerning Life & Liberty:

 

a.      CIC/BS/A/2016/001238, in case titled Amrika Bai v/o PIO, EPFO, Raipur decided on 30.03.2017 wherein it has been held as under: -

Para 9- The moment RTI Application on Pension Issue is received, there should be a mechanism at the entry stage to discover and identify it reflects a pension related grievance/issue and then should act immediately.

Para 10 – Not only the CPIO, even the other authorities under RTI Act like the first appeal /second appellate authorities also should dispose such appeals involving pension issues within 48 Hours.

Para 16 – The commission also requires as per section 19(8)(a) (I, III, IV) of RTI Act, the public authority to consider pension related information as life and liberty concerned information

b.      CIC/BS/A/2016/000307, in case titled V. Balaraman v/s PIO, EPFO, Thiruvananthapuram decided on 4.07.2017, wherein the above orders of CIC as at 2 (a) above have been reiterated that the information related to the pension matters must be provided within 48 hours as the same is concerning life and liberty.

 

c.       CIC/BS/C/2015/000157, in case titled V. Vaidyanathan  v/s PIO, EPFO, Mumbai decided on 17.07.2017, wherein the above orders of CIC as at 2(a) above have again been reiterated that the information relating to Pension matters must be provided within 48 hours as the same is concerning life and liberty.

 

You are therefore, requested to provide duly attested /certified photocopies (see Chapter 1, clause (2) (j) (ii) of the RTI act 2005) of the aforesaid documents on A-4 paper sheets under RTI Act 2005 within 48 Hours as decided by the CIC (see Sr. no. 2 above).

Simply great reply.  The forum is proud to have members like  Humhongeka..

The life or liberty clause is only for availing basic pension settlements and not for all issues related to pension.

`Members can only guide and those who want details must hunt on the lead.  Please search in google or CIC website . Someone might have preserved that record provides link., till then make your own  attempt.  If you are successful, kindly provide the link to help those who may need same information.  While making appeal, all those citations are needed, and during arguments surprise CPIO  by providing that authentic decisions in the past.

Namaskaram,

The original file - order of the CIC in the Amrika Bai case is attached in the response to your original post. (about  'RTI  PLEAS ON PENSION ISSUES SHOULD BE DECIDED IN 48 HOURS).

Am confused: is there anything else do you need please?

Thank You
