use of Pressure tactics to get an noc and later transfer of property



Respected Members,


I am staying in a registered society which is also one of the earliest registered society in mumbai , fort area.


Last year we had one of our members a very very influential person to be named had sent a letter asking for NOC in regards to sale of his commercial premises.The NOC sent was very general in nature with no proper details as to whom did he INTEND to sell the property. i have mentioned the word intend bcoz that is what was exactly stated to us in the letter to the society. On verification made by the members of the society it came to knowledge that the names given were with fictitious addresses and that of non I.T.Payers and the transaction amount was much higher then the entire cost of their building which the buyers had provided. fearing shady and anti social element or dummy buyers the society informed the buyers to personally come and meet the members of the society but the buyers have failed to do so in the last whole year, plus now the influential seller has resorted to tactics of pressurization from the police,crime branch and latest by sending a notice through dep registrar of society for taking over the administration of the society. the reason has not been mentioned clearly in the said notice but a mention that the annual general meeting of our society which was delayed for a year has lead them to take this step. Respected members we were suppose to have our annual general meeting after 3 months of delay but the seller's lawyer prevented us from doing so by misguiding us about the rules.It is now observed that the said lawyer is hand in glove with the buyer and seller and is a liaison agent of the Dep.Registrars office. we have been pressurized time and again to part with the NOC and transfer the said property. The society has no objection with the same but our only concern is that the seller comes ahead and declare his intent..


Kindly help me draft an RTI query in regards to the same to the Deputy Registrar of societies, and the questions that i should ask him and documents to be taken from them, along with the other officials whom i should approach and preventive steps to stop this illegal conduct and pressure tactics of the influential people.Our society's financial position is not so strong and most of the members are middle class working people who are peace loving in nature.


Kindly reply my query as i have tremendous faith in guidance from the members here...

      The recent report of the CSE regarding the use of high levels of pesticides in soft drinks has now prompted a group of well-known names from various fields to go the RTI route.
      On Friday, several activists including Prof Yashpal (former chairman UGC), Aruna Roy (RTI activist), Arundhati Roy, Shanti Bhushan, Arvind Kejriwal and Sandeep Pande (both Magsaysay winners) were present at the inauguration of the RTI kiosk in Jantar Mantar.
      Prof Yashpal and Aruna Roy proceeded to file requests for information under the RTI Act to several government agencies on the occasion.
      The questions addressed to the Central Ground Water Board, Central Pollution Control Board, Ministry of Environment and Ministry of Food Processing, covered a gamut of issues, including how much water is being extracted by the soft drink bottling plants, whether the ministries had knowledge of sludge containing various chemicals in discharge of several soft drinks as well as if the government knew the amount of caffeine and aspartame being used in the colas.

      A Chennai based consumer activist has been waging a battle for more than six months to get information from the National Environmental Engineering Research Institute (NEERI), Nagpur, under the Right To Information Act.
      The petitioner, Dharmesh Shah of Besant Nagar, Chennai submitted his application to the NEERI, a Central Government Undertaking, on June 14, 2006, seeking information pertaining to the projects undertaken by the institute between 1998 and 2006.
      According to the petitioner, the NEERI failed to furnish the information much beyond the prescribed period of 30 days, following which he made an appeal to the Appellate Authority in the same organisation.
      Only later, the NEERI chose to reply, but that too, refusing to provide the information sought for.
      The institute also claimed that it had received the application only on September 1, while the application was actually submitted in June.
      In its reply, the NEERI said, "Any information pertaining to sponsored/consultancy projects is of confidential nature and is not to be disclosed from NE ERI's side." Aggrieved, the petitioner moved the Central Information Commission seeking to direct the NEERI to furnish the information he sought for under the RTI Act.
      "The NEERI denied me information quoting some rule of the Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR). But neither the public information officer of the NEERI nor the CSIR could clarify or explain the rule to me. It is a grave violation of the RTI Act," Dharmesh Shah said in his appeal before the Central Information Commission. The appeal is to yet to be heard by the Commission.
