How RTI can be helpful to in case of RTO



Here are details of the case, Please let me know how RTI can be helpful to me.


One of my known person has went for driving license in Bangalore. Just check incidences -


  1. When he was in front of licensing authority, officer denied to speak in English and asked to speak him in Kannada only. When he said about not knowing Kannada and ask to speak in Hindi, officer shown him bitter face.
  2. Officer asked him to show PUC certificate for new car - new car doesn't require PUC certificate.
  3. During driving test, officer asked him where he belongs to, is he a software guy and for how much time he is in Bangalore - to probably inquire about his background.

  4. He was declared failed in driving test reason
    • He did not wear helmet for 2 wheeler test - he has asked officer whether he should wear or not before test and officer said, its ok not to wear
    • He did not put L sign board on bike as it was on his car. He asked officer whether he should transfer it from his car as it was on his car.
    • He has not shown sign of stop while taking turn on bike - how many Indian knows sign of stop ?


[*]At the end when he asked officer not to be unfair to him, officer replied to him only in Kannada ?

Clearly it looks that License was rejected because of prejudice.


I think RTI can't become useful here.


Alternatively, this can go to the head of department i.e. Commissioner of Police as a complaint but I suggested my friend not to go there as I fear going to police for any case.

I don't feel that RTI can be of much help to you in this case. As the officer has not done anything that is against the law.


Maybe he was not that much educated to speak/understand English and was not conversant in spoken Hindi.


You can seek details of requirements for passing a driving license test from that particular RTO either through RTI. Generally most of the RTOs have these instructions displayed on a notice board in their office.

      The person in the article below is me. I had a corporation official visit my house with the RTI and asking for my whereabouts. However the PIO has sent a reply on 8/5/19  stating that AE Div 170 is the person responsible for inspecting the banners on the particular stretch. It is after finalising this reply that I had got a call from AE Div 170 on 8/5/19 evening and a person visited my house on 9/5/19. The reply sent by PIO dated 8/5/19 was received on 11/5/19.
      Further The AE has stated that he has inspected the stretch and removed illegal banners immediately. However I have material evidence that the banners remained in the same place from afternoon till late night. Only the persons who kept the banner had removed them. So can I penalise the PIO for providing false and incorrect information.

      Chandigarh, February 20: A former teacher of Sanawar School, DR Rajinder Singla, today alleged that he was sacked after he demanded some information from the school under the Right To Information Act (RTI). Addressing a press conference at Press Club, Sector 27, Singla alleged that the school has a number of irregularities and the school authorities were not ready to confront it. Singla said, “When the school authorities were not ready to answer my queries I went through the RTI and submitted a 13 page application to the regional officer of CBSE at Panchkula.
      A few weeks later I received a letter from the headmaster of the school stating that my services had been terminated with immediate effect.”
      He further said, “ While I was denied the information the first time I had asked for it under the RTI act, the regional officer at the CBSE office in Panchkula, Kushal Singh later directed the headmaster of the school to provide me with the required information.”
      Singla also alleged that the school authorities direct the teachers to act and function as per their wishes, failing which they are harassed.
      He added, “ those who have been harassing the teachers include R P Aggarwal, Chairman of board of governors and education secretary to the Government of India, Jai Singh Gill, former chief secretary, Government of Punjab, Omar Abdullah, MP from Jammu and Kashmir and Lt General A N Aul, chief of staff, HQ Western Command, Chandimandir.
      Many teachers have been sacked by the school without serving any notice or explaining the reason of doing the same.”
      Meanwhile, refuting the allegation, Praveen Vasisht, Headmaster Sanawar School, said, “Singla had a poor record.
      He has been sacked as per the decision taken by the board of directors and not because he requested for information. He is making false allegations about the school because he himself is at fault.”
      Singla also said that he would be filing a case against the school authorities in the District Courts soon.
