Dear Friends,

Hi,

Shri Subodh Jain, RTI activist asked a question to Delhi Police that how many mobiles were theft in one year. Delhi Polce asked for Rs. 1,68,000/- for this information (source Navbharat Times dated 15-11-2007).

Can any department asks fund for any question under RTI Act.

It is very funny situation with the Act.

Hello Chandra,

 

I liked you signature very much. :)

Very well said.

I've earlier said that out govt. system is junk for last 60years & can not make run in one or two years. Our continuos RTI Applciation efforts will make it run & will be a threat for newly coming govt. employees. So both parts will move, with time.

 

Lage Raho.

Dear Friends,

 

Hi,

 

Shri Subodh Jain, RTI activist asked a question to Delhi Police that how many mobiles were theft in one year. Delhi Polce asked for Rs. 1,68,000/- for this information (source Navbharat Times dated 15-11-2007).

As per Section 27 & 28 of the RTI Act 2005, Central or each State Govt. has framed "Rules" for the act. As per those rules, the Public Authority can charge for providing information.

 

For Delhi, the rules are available at:

http://persmin.nic.in/RTI/circulars/FeeCostRTI.pdf (original)

http://persmin.nic.in/RTI/notification-feerules.pdf (amendment)

 

If a Fee is to be charged as per Section 7(1), then, as per section 7(3) (a) and (b), the PIO should inform the applicant along with a reasoned order and calculations as to the basis of the fees to be charged.

 

Please check if the PIO of the Delhi Police has done that and on what basis has he calculated the amount of Rs. 1,68,000/-.

 

The figure is very high and there seems to be some mistake somewhere.

The basis of arriving the fee amount has to be provided with the request to deposit the fee. The same communication is also a decision which can also be appealed with the appellate authority.

In this case, as per the Act you have not much choice other than resorting to First appeal. However, it is advisable to resort to seeking from PIO inspection of the dicuments by filing an application for it.

      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.
