Dear friends,


I have just joined RTI India. Those of you have been following the recent articles by Veerappa Moily, A Suyra Prakash etc that have been posted may have read about me. I am a retired Army officer, who served in RAW for about 31/2 years. Last year I wrote a book titled INDIA'S EXTERNAL INTELLIGENCE - SECRET OF RESEARCH & ANALYSIS WING (RAW) in which I pointed out several anomalies such as lack of transparency and accountability, corruption, indiscipline and so on. For my efforts, I am being prosecuted under the infamous Official Secrets Act, 1923.


So much for the brief introduction. I will soon post a detailed brief giving the latest situation, especially the systematic manner in which the bureaucracy stone walls the use of the RTI Act to obtain 'uncomfortable' information.

      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.

      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.
