Question

anjalipj

Hello! Everyone,

A problem with my domicile certificate has brought me to this forum.

I hope it can be solved here.

I need a domicile cert. at Mumbai but do not have a ration card.

the staff in that office just refuse to accept any papers without a copy of the ration card.

surely i can prove that i am residing in mumbai since my birth without having a ration card.

i now want to enquire with the office if they have ever issued domiciles to anyone without a ration card and if so to how many people in the last five years.

i do not know to whom this query is to be addressed, which form to use, where to submit it etc.

anyone with this information is requested to reply to my query.

thanks.

You can file a RTI Application with the SPIO of the Public Office which issues those domicile certificates.

 

Your application has to be as per the RTI Rules and Fees for Maharashtra. Thse are available in the Guide segment of the portal: RTI Guide

 

The guide segment also has some useful articles about how to draft a ppalication, how to submit, etc. Please go thorugh them.

 

Please also refer to some of the links under the "All about RTI" icon on the home page.

i have applied for domicile certificate for my daughter. I have been living in maharashtra since 1986. My daughter was born in pune in 1993 and has been studying in pune for the past 12 years. I have been staying in the government accommodation for the past 24 years in pune. But i have been denied the domicile certificate for my daughter by the tahsildar under pune district collector without assigning any reason whatsoever. Kindly let me know whether i can prefer an appeal. If so, to whom. So many exasperated parents like me shall immensely benefit from it.

      The representative of the union applied for the information in my office asking me as to why the incentive bill of the office was not passed under the signature of the Divisional Secretary.
       
      As has been decided previously by CIC and under the Act, only citizen has the right to information. Hence I rejected the application under this ground.
       
      The Divisional Secretary applied for First Appeal with Appellate Authority
       
      Meanwhile he filed yet another application asking me to give the copy of the decision under which I refused to give information to Union Secretary. This time again he wrote as Divisional Secretary in the Official union letter pad but this time he wrote his name too.
       
      There are three things:

      Under 1st application, the information was asked for was opinion as to why I did not pass the incentive bill which is out of purview of Right to Information Act.
      once he had preferred appeal over the matter, another application do not stand and is a waste of public resource.
      As has asked for information again as Union representative, another application also do not stand as valid. I had replied to the applicant:

      Asking for information as Union Secretary is not valid under the Act.
      Already the appeal to the same matter is pending the Appellate authority.
      Lastly as the information been asked is not held at this office, however as informed citizenry, it is informed that the information can be downloaded from the CIC website, and that the Section 3 of the Act states that Subject to the provisions of this Act, all citizens shall have the right to information.
