Recommended Posts

For the benefit of the RTI community, I furnish hereunder extracts from a news report that appeared in the Chennai edition of Indian Express(16.11.2006):

 

"The RTI Act is gaining momentum with around 300 NGOs including consumer groups, pensioner associations, women's group and trade unions joining hands for the state-wide RTI campaign

 

The month long campaign is being headed by the Federation of Consumer Organisations-Tamilnadu & Pondicherry(FEDCOT) Besides conducting street corner meetings everyday, they have also been distributing phamplets in schools, colleges and among the general public on how they can utilise the RTI Act to get information from the public authorities."

      I had sought details of loan and copies of agreement entered with World Bank, JICA etc. of IT Expressway Chennai (created in partnership with Govt of TN) However the PIO has replied that they have moved out of world bank loan and taken loan from other banks details of which cannot be disclosed under 8(1) d of RTI Act citing "commercial confidence".
      However the IT Expressway is a public limited company having entered into agreement with Govt of TN and others for developing and maintaining a particular stretch of road.
       
      Kindly help me frame a good first appeal.

      Hello,
      I require help on co-operative issue. I had filed the RTI with the PIO, Dy registrar of co-op societies seeking information on affairs of society.
      The PIO has replied stating that the information I am seeking is available with co-operative society. My query is:
      1] Can PIO direct an applicant to private body for information?
      2] The society in question comes under the jurisdiction of the PIO, since PIO is public authority and co-operative society a private body, is it not duty of PIO to seek information from society and give it to me? How can PIO direct me back to society? This is RTI application, either I have to appeal or I have to forego. I cannot complaint against reply. So I want to approach FAA, under what grounds can I?
      3] What kind of violation PIO has committed by directing me back to private society? 
      4] Does co-operative society come under the purview of RTI ACt?
      Your views are appreciated. I am fighting lone battle with corrupt system.
