Pune Municipal Corporation uses RTI Act to obtain info from ST Dept

Recommended Posts

maneesh

This is the literal translation of a news item that appeared in a local daily "Pudhari" dtd the 04th of July'06

 

Pune Municipal corporation "PMC" has used Right to Information act to obtain information from sales tax dept.

 

PMC's efforts to obtain information about turnover of some merchants failed. The Octroi dept of PMC knew that many merchants smuggle their goods into Pune without paying octroi. So the PMC wanted to ask about the sales tax paid by these merchants, but all their efforts failed, sales tax dept was not cooperating, so finally they used RTI to obtain such information.

 

Initially they filed a requisition asking information of sales tax paid by cloth merchants, and they got the information within 30 days and then they filed requisitions about plywood, hardware ,electrical merchants etc. And due to this information income of octroi dept has increased.

 

I hope all the municipal corporation in India will learn lesson from this example!!!!

      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.
