RTI to ask Govt. why it gives dates instead of justice ?

Question

tusharcosmic

We go to the courts for justice and they give us next dates of hearing.

Can we ask the Govt. through RTI that under which constitutional law they go on evading justice to its people?

If yes please tell me the procedure in details.

one cannot ask opinion from the Public Authority. You can ask if the information is retained with the PA

Dexter,But I asked that can not we ask the Govt. through RTI that under which constitutional law they go on evading justice to its people?

That is certainly not an opinion of the PIO we are asking ?

A officer can evade only 2, 3 or 4 times after that..... But a responsible public should make them work.

We have Citizens Charter available with every government organisation. you may refer with the standard time for redressel of grievances from the public. some organisation even pay compensation to the the effected party, punishment to the officer handling the grievance etc.

what ever be your grievance, better go in writing to the officer and ask for receipt of your complaint. If they give you next hearing dates, ask them to give in writing. Then file an RTI application with the PIO in his office asking the reasons for each delay. This will put the officer under the audit of vigilant public and in future he may prefer to handle any grievance in time instead of making you run around his office.

If they are Judicial Officers, you should complain to the controlling higher court.

You can get a free copy of the Citizens Charter at their Office which may be updated one than which you find on the website.

 

But my advice to you to take the help of a legal professional or person having sound knowledge on Law.

In fact this is about criminal delay in judiciary. Thus courts have become source of injustice to citizens. However, recently govt has woken-up, since it has realised that if judiciary does not deliver justice and gives only dates for decades, people have hence started taking law into their hands for justice and that internal terrorism [naxals etc] are its off-shoots. In Gujarat alone 700 courts are being established in next one year to expedite cases, Evening courts have been a success. Alternate Dispute resolution is being strengthened and principle of justice in administration [so that citizens are not required to go to court] is being implemented from central govt. There have been many PILs on delays and SC has passed strongly worded judgements. However, politicians are interested in delay in courts, so that they are not penalised for their misdeeds during their life time [warren anderson type- he is 92 and curative petition will take another 15 years !!!]. Consumer Protection Act mandates that cases should be disposed off in maximum 6 months, but cases pending for more than 6 years are abound all over India in consumer courts. Lakhs of undertrials are in jails for decades since their bail petitions are not being heard for decades. Our country will be in civil war in next 5-7 years if situation is not cured urgently. Half the districts of the country are under internal terrorism.

 

Hence trying to solve this deep rooted menance by few RTI applications will be waste of time, money and energy. Only united force of law abiding and civil society groups will force govts to expedite RIGHT TO JUSTICE. Today our courts are Kaydalayas and not Nyayalayas, as horrible delay defeats justice [bhopal, ruchika etc]

Jps,dear--as RTI is doing wonders,I think if we try and succeed in getting where to apply,whom to address and ask them how much time frame they have decided for what type of court cases,and ultimately who is responsible for making the arrangements that the justice be delivered in that time frame--perhaps we can do something positive in this direction.After all knowing the problem and solution does amount to almost nothing if someone does not do to reform the things.

      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.
