Bank of India says "No Saparate File Made"

Question

sharadphadke

During my one RTI on ATM issue asking details on action taken on RBI Circular dt. 17/7/2009 on "Failed Transactions" I was informed no separate file made on the subject issue.

The Record Act says,

(1) "file" means a collection of papers relating to the public records on a specific subject-matter consisting of correspondence, notes and appendix there to and assigned with a file number;

(2) "standing guard file" means a compilation of papers on a particular subject-matter consisting of copies of policy decision, orders, instructions or any another matter incidental thereto arranged in a chronological order;

 

In this case Bank also states:

1. Kindly note that the said RBI circular contains the guidelines to be followed by the Banks and based on the same our Bank has issued a circuIar to all Branches/Zones and there is no separate file or margin note on it.

2. The details of guidelines / instructions to be followed by the Bank are given in the said RBI circular dated l7/07/2009 and Bank is guided by those instructions.

3. It is informed that Bank has reproduced the provisions of the said RBI circular dated 17.07.2009 to all its branches and Zonal Office vide circular dated 29.08.2009

 

All this is generated from this circular and hence this becomes part and parcel of "That" subject i.e. "ATM". Then how Bank can say there is no separate file? Even the report sent to RBI based on this circular or instructions becomes the part and parcel of this file.

 

Day to day progress and movement report margin notes on application was asked and the reply is "This contains no Information" as per S.2 of the Act!

 

In this case how to determine if the statement made by Public Authority is correct.

 

Feed back is requested as this will be useful for Second Appeal/Complaint. Does this means "Record Act" is not followed in Banks?

If it is local, ask for:

 

inspection of all "information" (as defined in Sec 2(f) of the RTI Act).

Inspection in the RTI application denied in the sense not replied to.

Local inspection in one of the branch with this reply letter denied.

Then there seems to be no other way.
