The Thane District Court Officers deny to give first appeal form in Maharashtra

Question

saifidcool

I have sought an information under the Right to Information Act, 2005 to the District Court at Thane in Maharashtra State, but, the court officials asked to furnish a new application under the Right to Information Act, Maharashtra Districts Court Right to Information Rules, 2009 and when I submitted the same, no information was provided and thereafter, I tried to seek an appeal form for filing an appeal, but, they denied the same by giving vague reply that they done have the copy of the appeal form and now, the last date for filing an appeal is getting closer and closer, which is giving me goosebumps. Kindly help with the appeal form under the Maharashtra Districts Court Right to Information Rules, 2009.:confused:

Good News: They are supposed to be available here: http://bombayhighcourt.nic.in/site/rtirules/infrule.html

 

Bad News: The specific link which you want does not open !

 

==============

 

Sometimes, to get information, we have to take a long walk.

Best would be to go to the HC, meet the PIO and get a copy from him.

While there, mention to him that links on their website do not work.

My experience with Bombay High Court is as per your comment.

PIO kept my unsigned application for 31 days and then replied Information is denied since the application is unsigned.

I have filed a First Appeal, there was a hearing on 17/10/2013. I had written an email to send the decision through email and then by register post.

Two days back PIO called me asking I have sent Rs. 45/- Stamps but fee is Rs.43/- how do I refund Rs2/- When asked about decision of FA he said he had not attended the hearing as he had urgent work.

The information asked was day to day progress to a letter written to Chief Justice and other justice of the court of Bombay High court some time back under powers to stop miscarriage of justice by lower courts by misuse of powers. The matter was related to ATM failed transaction Case where police have not given FIR and Magistrate [JMFC] refused to pass order under 156[3] stating I have to give full list of accused and it is not police business to go on finding the accused!!

In appeal I had mentioned that PIO is the mirror of PA and replies indicates the attitude towards RTI Act.

The appeal decision will be posted by normal post with Rs5/- stamp and I will get it in course of time as per post will.

I wish myself a best luck as my another application was returned on the plea "Sub judice" which was wrong and is wrong as no case was pending in any court.

Even if I go to second appeal they have High Court for stay to misuse of judicial powers.

God may save judiciary.Hon'ble Mr. Justice V.N.Khare Former CJI rightly said the judiciary is not corrupt but the judges are corrupt. I have belief any law cannot be implemented if judge is corrupt or complacent.

Pls tell him to deposit it with the High Court's fund for litigants' benefit. It will give him enough headache. Happy information seeking.

      The Bombay high court on Thursday issued a notice to state chief information commissioner and stayed his order which had brought all slum societies under the ambit of Right to Information Act (RTI).
      The State Chief Information Commissioner had while hearing one matter involving one such slum society passed an order on December 19, 2017 and declared that provisions of RTI Act shall apply to all the societies under SRA. In a significant interim order, the Bombay high court on Thursday issued a notice to state chief information commissioner and stayed his order which had brought all slum societies under the ambit of Right to Information Act (RTI). The HC was hearing a fresh challenge to an order of the State CIC which in one stroke brought thousands of slum societies under the provisions of RTI making them liable to share information akin to a public body.
      A slum society in Andheri had moved the HC against a December 2017 order passed by the state CIC and a subsequent order of April 2018 issued by a joint registrar Slum Rehabilitation Authority to it. Andheri Juhu Lane Nav Bharat Cooperative Housing society Limited in its petition questioned the legality and validity of these orders. The SC had in 2013 held that housing societies do not come under RTI and the state info commissioner’s order is contrary to it said, senior counsel Damle before a bench of Justices SS Kemkar and Nitin Sambre. The bench then adjourned the matter for further hearing and stayed the orders.
      Section 32 of the Maharashtra Cooperative Societies Act, 1960, is parallel to the provision of Sections 3 and 7 of the RTI Act, said the petition as it covers rights of members to inspect and see “free of cost’’ the society’s office, and is entitled to get, for a fee, copies of audited annual balance sheet, profit and loss account, its committee members’ list as well as list of members, minutes of general meetings and records of society’s transactions.
