Victimised for filing RTI applications in my department

Question

madhulotheti

Sir,

 

I am working as UDC in Income-tax Appellate tribunal (ministry of law and justice) till 27.05.2011 at Visakhapatnam. Since, I made 3 applications under RTI Act 2005, to our department requesting them to inform about the status of my representations made for Cadre review, copies of recruitment rules, rosters, etc., then all of a sudden, they transferred me to Pune by making me a victim (they picked me out of entire 100+ UDCs of ITAT), by relieving me from the duties at Visakhpatnam on 27.05.2011 (date of transfer order).

 

Sir, is there any thing I can do, to make a compliant against this injustice and attitude of our Head Office.

 

Kindly, suggest me the correct procedure and oblige.

 

Yours sincerely,

 

Madhu Kumar

You need to first make a representation about this victimization for seeking information to the head of your public authority, and if you do not get redressal of your greivance in a reasonable time limit (say 1 month), you will have to move to court.

 

You can use the attached decisions to strengthen your case, and share the results on this portal for the benefit of those similarly affected

Yes sir, I agree with you and also I asked about the transfers of other people and all other details for approaching appropriate forum.

If you have a strong case, you can file complaint with Central Information Commission, New Delhi u/s 18.1 of RTI Act. Victimizing for using RTI amounts to negating fundamental rights guaranteed under article 19.1.a and this is a serious matter for the victimising officers. Please visit:

Sir, with due respect, the CIC has already ruled (plz see attachment) that it has no jurisdiction in matters of victimization. So in my humble view, the remedy in this situation is to make the complaint to the Principal Secretary of the concerned department along with the Chief Secretary, and mark a copy to the CIC and CVC

      The person in the article below is me. I had a corporation official visit my house with the RTI and asking for my whereabouts. However the PIO has sent a reply on 8/5/19  stating that AE Div 170 is the person responsible for inspecting the banners on the particular stretch. It is after finalising this reply that I had got a call from AE Div 170 on 8/5/19 evening and a person visited my house on 9/5/19. The reply sent by PIO dated 8/5/19 was received on 11/5/19.
      Further The AE has stated that he has inspected the stretch and removed illegal banners immediately. However I have material evidence that the banners remained in the same place from afternoon till late night. Only the persons who kept the banner had removed them. So can I penalise the PIO for providing false and incorrect information.

      Chandigarh, February 20: A former teacher of Sanawar School, DR Rajinder Singla, today alleged that he was sacked after he demanded some information from the school under the Right To Information Act (RTI). Addressing a press conference at Press Club, Sector 27, Singla alleged that the school has a number of irregularities and the school authorities were not ready to confront it. Singla said, “When the school authorities were not ready to answer my queries I went through the RTI and submitted a 13 page application to the regional officer of CBSE at Panchkula.
      A few weeks later I received a letter from the headmaster of the school stating that my services had been terminated with immediate effect.”
       
      He further said, “ While I was denied the information the first time I had asked for it under the RTI act, the regional officer at the CBSE office in Panchkula, Kushal Singh later directed the headmaster of the school to provide me with the required information.”
       
       
      Singla also alleged that the school authorities direct the teachers to act and function as per their wishes, failing which they are harassed.
      He added, “ those who have been harassing the teachers include R P Aggarwal, Chairman of board of governors and education secretary to the Government of India, Jai Singh Gill, former chief secretary, Government of Punjab, Omar Abdullah, MP from Jammu and Kashmir and Lt General A N Aul, chief of staff, HQ Western Command, Chandimandir.
       
      Many teachers have been sacked by the school without serving any notice or explaining the reason of doing the same.”
       
      Meanwhile, refuting the allegation, Praveen Vasisht, Headmaster Sanawar School, said, “Singla had a poor record.
       
      He has been sacked as per the decision taken by the board of directors and not because he requested for information. He is making false allegations about the school because he himself is at fault.”
      Singla also said that he would be filing a case against the school authorities in the District Courts soon.
