Dear karira, and the others contributors to RTIINDIA.ORG have made it possible for the unimaginable response to this wonderful Portal/site.

 

The credit also goes to the Citizens who have within themselves a burning desire to FIGHT FOR THEIR RIGHTS and in this FIGHT HAVE FOUND A USEFUL TOOL, WEAPON the RTI Act of 2005 to fight with and make inroads into ensuring that if not now, down in the future there will be a DAY when Transparency, Accountability in Public Offices will become a part of everyday affair and will not be looked upon as a deterrent to growth and prosperity.

 

I shall always look upon this Portal/site as a place to learn and gather information for my fight against the Corrupt.

 

Regards

Extract from: Re-engaging with the world

 

 

..... RTI portal rtiindia.org has already got 100,000 registered users, a sign of just how popular the RTI has become.

 

It is unfortunate that this number 100,000 is masking two facts:

1. These users have come for different reasons: not many have come for RTI. It is not a sign of popularity of RTI.

 

2. The site is strong, relevant, active and useful irrespective of the numbers. It is the dedication, compassion, knowledge and the fighting spirit of about 20 active individuals espousing the cause of RTI, and the vision of the Dreamers and their kushal chief that give the site its strength.

Exactly! Very true.

Even those users who come purely for PF Balance, PF withdrawal, IT refund etc. must also be filing at least one RTI application to get the issue resolved.

"A brainchild of UPA Chairperson Sonia Gandhi, the RTI really flowed from the work of activists such as Aruna Roy who campaigned for the right to get muster roll data for various anti-poverty programmes"

How A brainchild of UPA Chairperson Sonia Gandhi flowed from the work of activists such as Aruna Roy who campaigned for the right to get muster roll data for various anti-poverty programmes?

I think entire credit should go to Aruna Roy and her team. If I am not wrong, there was already some RTI act in Rajasthan before RTI 2005

I will suugest let us stop blessing one or other political leaders. The would never use the RTI act due to their posttions in the Indian society.

 

Let us come with the ideas on how to make this site more usefull for the RTI user. One way is let us create the posting of the Public Information Officers' contact information from the key goverment offices on this web site.

Pramod Mishra, perhaps you have failed to observe that Karira's first post is only an extract and from a news report in another media. Karira has not added any name on his own.

 

Just to ensure that no fresh controversy is generated on account of your last query in the previous post, this thread stands closed.

      Times of India Report on 25th:
      NEW DELHI: In just one year of implementation of Right to Information (RTI) Act 2005, your right is already in trouble.
       
      An examination of appeals pending with Central Information Commission (CIC), the final appellate body for RTI Act, reveals that on an average an applicant has to wait at least seven months to be heard. And experts predict that at this rate within two months, this waiting time is all set to increase to two years.
       
      If this is shocking, then wait till you see how CIC has been disposing these cases. According to a survey conducted by Parivartan, an NGO, of 568 appeals before CIC, 309 cases were disposed of without even being heard.
       
      Neither the applicant nor the public information officer (PIO) was called in these cases. This means that over 54% of the applicant were not even heard.
       
      According to RTI Rules 2005, it is upto the appellant to decide whether he wants to heard in person or in writing or not heard at all. The appeal rules lay down that it is the duty of CIC to give them an opportunity to be heard.
       
      CIC, however, says that it is not possible to call all appellants. Chief Information Commissioner Wajahat Habibullah said: "The Commission cannot call everyone.
       
      If we start calling each appellant, we would not be able to dispose of appeals. We call people when we see the need for it." Legal experts, however, say that this is against the principle of natural justice.
      RTI expert and Magsaysay award winner Arvind Kejriwal said: "Their job is not to dispose appeals but to dispense justice. What would happen if Supreme Court starts saying this?" The disposal system is slowing down.
       
      The number of appeals are increasing at a very fast pace. On September 4 this year, CIC received 89 appeals in a single day. In the last one year till September 8, 2006, CIC had received 3,059 applications.
       
      Out of this number, it has disposed only 1,531 cases. The waiting period of applicants varies. While R P Jain, a Delhi resident, had to wait 195 days before his case was disposed, Piyush Mahapatra had to wait for 72 days.
       
      Habibullah said: "We set ourselves a two month target to dispose one case. I agree, this wait is much longer in many cases. But we are trying to improve our system. We have engaged data entry operators to get a system in order. As soon as a case comes to us, we would feed it in our system.
       
      We are trying to make some changes." Kejriwal, however, disagrees. "There is a need to impose penalties. Since CIC is not willing to impose penalties, the government officers are not scared to deny information and every case goes to CIC.
       
      At this rate, the waiting period of each appeal would increase manifold in just two months." Of the 1,531 cases disposed so far, CIC has given two orders issuing penalties against officers.
       
      While it has already withdrawn one order, it is in the process of withdrawing the second one as well.

      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."
