CIC slaps fine of Rs 57,500 on Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee

 

 

NEW DELHI: The Central Information Commission (CIC) has slapped a fine of Rs 57,500 on the Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee for its failure to reply to three RTI applications.

 

Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Prabandh Sudhar Committee member Kuldip Singh Bhogal in a press conference on Saturday informed that the CIC has imposed a penalty of Rs 57,500 for non-furnishing of information under RTI Act in three different complaints by the Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee (DSGMC).

 

Bhogal said there were reports of illegal transfer of Guru Harkrishan Hospital, Bala Sahib, in Delhi to one Manipal Group by the office bearers of DSGMC. "An RTI application was filed by the Sudhar Committee seeking a copy of the agreement made with the said Manipal Group. But the information was not provided even after one year. In view of the delay, the CIC in its final hearing passed an order imposing a penalty of Rs 25,000,'' Bhogal said.

 

"Similarly, in another complaint, the CIC imposed a penalty of Rs 25,000 on DSGMC for not furnishing the details of the fee paid by it to lawyers to defend the case of illegal postponement of elections of the executive board due in February 2008. A fine of Rs 7,500 was also imposed for delay in providing information in another matter,'' Bhogal added.

 

When contacted, DSGMC chief PS Sarna rubbished the claims of Bhogal and on the RTI issue, he said, "Our lawyer has told us that we are not covered by the RTI Act as we are a religious body. Thus, we decided not to respond to the RTI applications.''.

      Delhi Sikh Gurudwara Management Committee comes under RTI :HC
       
      NEW DELHI: The Delhi high court has held that Delhi Sikh Gurudwara Management Committee (DSGMC) is a public authority making it mandatory to reveal information under the RTI Act.
       
      Justice S Muralidhar dismissed the plea of the committee for not bringing it within the ambit of the transparency law.
       
      The committee had approached the court after the Central Information Commission had directed it to reveal information sought under the RTI Act and set up the necessary infrastructure for the purpose.
       
      "This court concurs with the view expressed by the CIC that DSGMC is a public authority under Section 2(h) of the RTI Act,'' justice Muralidhar said.
       
      The committee contended that it should not be directed to comply with the provisions of RTI Act as it did not get any finance from government.
       
      Rejecting its contention, justice Muralidhar said the public authority under Section 2(h) (a) to (d) need not be necessarily, directly or indirectly, substantially financed by funds provided by the appropriate government.
