plz somebody give me answer to these questions

Question

dchugh

Satya purchases rice, sugar, atta and kerosene on his ration card from the Public Delivery System (Fair Price) shop in his colony. For the last 6 months, the shopkeeper wasn`t giving him his quota of sugar and kerosene citing scarcity of supply of those items. Satya found out that most of the allocated PDS items are pilfered and diverted to the open market. When he complained about this to the Food and Civil Supplies Department, they asked him to lodge a complaint with the Consumer forum. Satya requested for information from the PIO of Food and Civil Supplies Dept., under the RTI Act, 2005 about the details of the quantity of items provided by the government for distribution through the ration shops.

Question 1. (a) What are the remedies available to Ramaiah under the RTI Act, 2005? Why do you say so?

Question 2. (b) What points should he keep in mind if he decides to file a first appeal?

Dear Member

 

a. I couldnt understand how Ramaiah is affected?? In the story Satya is not getting PDS Ration.

 

b. RTI procedure is :Time limits specified in the RTI Act - RTI Guide

1. RTI Application with Fee to PIO

2. If no reply/ not satisfied with reply in 30 (or 35 days in case of submission to APIO or under Section 6(3)),

First Appeal to the First Appellate Authority (normally a officer higher than the PIO)

3. If no reply/ not satisfied with reply in 45 days to the First Appeal, then Second Appeal to the CIC/SIC (time period is 90 days)

 

c. Application needs to file First appeal (only) in case of no reply/not satisfied with reply. FA has to be as per the rules applicable.

 

d. Applicant can file RTI application for inspection of records of concerned PDS Shop.

This is a question from the OCC quiz.

Please answer it yourself.

It is unfair to take members opinions and then give them as answers in that quiz.

Anita has enrolled for the P.G. Diploma in management offered by XPDMI Institute affiliated to an University, which receives funds from the University Grants Commission. The final examination for the students in their second year is conducted by the University, even though the mid-term exams are the responsibility of the Institute - which is a privately funded entity. The institute has to submit all relevant records about the mid-term examinations to the University. Anita wants to know about the norms laid down for evaluating the answer sheets of one of her mid-term examination papers and submits an RTI application to the Principal. The Management tells her that the Institute is a private entity and is not bound by RTI Act, 2005. A friend suggests that she should apply to the PIO of the University and that there is a chance that she might get the relevant information. The friend also suggests that she should first find out if the information she is looking for is disclosed proactively by the University.Is Anita's friend's advice correct? What provisions of the RTI Act, 2005 apply?

Can the PIO reject Anita`s application on the grounds that even though the information is held by the University, it cannot be given since it pertains to a private entity?

Harleen,

 

This is a question from the OCC quiz.

 

DO NOT MAKE MULTIPLE POSTS/THREADS - more number of posts will never get you faster answers.

 

Please DO NOT ask members to answer OCC quiz questions.

It is like using unfair means to get good grades.

1) An applicant approached an organisation - notified by a State Government in the official Gazette as a "intelligence and security organisation" - with an RTI application. The applicant approached the designated PIO of that organisation and asked for information that he claimed pertained to violation of his human right. At first, the PIO responded saying that the Public Authority concerned is not bound to give the information. When told that even an exempted organisation has to give information pertaining to human rights`violation, the PIO argued that he was not convinced that the information involved human right violation. The applicant mentioned to the PIO that he is well-versed with the provisions of the RTI Act, 2005 and that he will not hesitate to pursue his case not just with the Information Commission concerned`, but if need be, he'd go all the way to the Supreme Court. Hearing this, the PIO felt that it would be o.k. to give information to the applicant right away to avoid any further hassles. In fact, the First Appellate Authority too had asked the PIO to do so.

1. (a) Is the applicant right in thinking that he can go all the way to the Supreme Court seeking a remedy if he is not satisfied, because he thinks that the information he is seeking pertains to a violation of his human right? Why do you think so?

 

2. (b) Is the PIO right in giving information to the applicant and taking the applicant`s or anybody else's word about it pertaining to the violation of is human right and giving information held by an organisation notified by the State Government as an `intelligence and security organisation`? Justify.

Abhishekguptaias,

 

This is called CHEATING !

 

It seems that you are either a IAS officer or an aspiring IAS Officer.

 

If citizens who aspire to be part of the governance process in this country - start their life with cheating - no wonder the situation in India is as it is.

 

Members,

 

Please do not assist any new member or give answers to any such queries.

These are all queries from the OCC Quiz.

Cheating in certificate exams for RTI is not honest.

In any case that certificate is a worthless piece of paper.

1) Ms. Prasanna complained about an illegal unauthorized construction on her property to the Municipal Corporation, Kottayam, but there was no response on her complaint. She decided to enquire about what action was taken on her complaint and / or whether she needs to make a representation to another authority to get her petition heard and resolved. To her dismay, however, she found out that the Corporation had not disclosed / displayed the name of the PIO concerned. Nobody in the Corporation knew who the PIO was.

1. What step(s) should Ms. Prasanna take in the exercise of her right to information so as to get the information she is looking for?

      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.
