Information denied





Certified copies of the list of prisoners who are citizens of India and are lodged in foreign jails.

If you feel that above information does not pertain to your department then please forward the application to the designated authority, as per section 6(3) of RTI Act 2005.

If the information sought by me cannot be given to me please give me the certified copies of the laws/bylaws/order/circular etc. under which such information is forbidden to the public.


REPLY is :


Information is not available with CPV Division of Ministry of External Affairs. However, you may wish to contact various Indian Missions or Posts abroad for specific information as Indian Missions and Posts are independent CPIOs. Address of Indian Missions and Posts abroad is available at Ministry of External Affairs website at https:(slash)(slash)www.mea.gov.in(slash)indian-missions-abroad-new.htm.



What should be my next step??

Like "Migrant labour", the statistics of Indian prisoners abroad data is not available with Indian Government.

Now post this as grievance to Ministry of External affairs  through PGRMS grievance on line portal and ask Ministry to evolve a data of such Indian prisoners country wise and for uploading the same in a website as the problem is very serious.

Under RTI, one can get such information as available in the form of a material record and when there is no such record, further correspondence to me appears unproductive.

Write to all Opposition leaders requesting them to raise the issue in Parliament .

      Pawan Kumar Kaushal, a retired headmaster, has been running from pillar to post since four and a half months to get information from the DEO(S) about his unwarranted pensionary benefit. He had sought information under the right to information (RTI) Act about his 6-month ad hoc service.
      Kaushal says that his six-month ad hoc service had hitherto remained unaccounted for pension and pensionary benefits by the authorities concerned.
      As per a decision of the Punjab and Haryana High Court, the service rendered should be counted for pension and pensionary benefits. The office of the secretary, department of school education, through a letter dated May 29, 2006, had asked the authorities, including the district education officers, to count the service of employees rendered on an ad hoc basis for the purpose of pensionary benefits.
      Kaushal said the AG, through a letter dated August 7, had asked the DEOs of Ludhiana to send his revised pension case after including the service rendered on an ad hoc basis. To know about the status of his case Kaushal had applied then for information under the RTI Act on October 12, but even after the expiry of the stipulated time period of 30 days, the information eluded him.
      Kaushal had also informed the state information commissioner and the chief information commissioner about the callousness of DEO(S), demanding necessary action and an adequate reply.
      On December 1, 2006 that the state information commission (IC) Punjab made it mandatory for the DEO(S) to provide information within 15 days’ time period but the latter took no pains to supply any such information to the former.
      Ultimately, the state information commissioner fixed February 26, 2007, for hearing from the district education officer (S) or through an authorised representative, who should be well-conversant with the facts of the case but astonishingly the DEO(S) still paid no heed. Now the state information commissioner had issued a fresh notice of hearing to the DEO(S) the date for which has been fixed on be April 2, 2007.

      Mr Kushal
      Please let me know whether an employee opting for VRS asking for information regarding his terminal benefits, can he be denied the information or the PSU can keep mum and not pass on the information. Please clarify
