To do RTI or No to do..

Question

Nikhil_M

Recently, a Private Cinema ticketing agency has been denying me a prize citing that I could not connect to them as there was a technical failure on service provider and hence they are not going to do anything. While in fact, I had connected to them successful and I have call records of my phone and have noted their representative name.

 

So I want to know how can RTI help me in revealing the truth.

RTI is not applicable on Pvt concerns hence its of no use you can try consumer court after reqding the terms and conditions in fine print.

RTI is only applicable to "public authorities" - as defined in Sec 2(h) of the RTI Act: http://www.rtiindia.org/act/

It does not cover private bodies/entities.

Thanks a lot guys...

Out of blues, Can I ask the public authority under which company is registered. For e.g TRAI in case of Cellular operators. I have had heard you can seek information in a chain rather than directly asking the private company.

Dear Member

 

a. For call records you can approach your service provider.

 

b. TRAI doesnt maintain such records so it not be fruitful to approach TRAI in the case.

Dearest Ambrish,

Trai and cellular operator is used in terms with analogy of obtaining a information from a private channel.Moreover,your reply is redundant and inaccurate.

a. For call records you can approach your service provider.

a. I have all the call records from service provider. quote " I have call records of my phone"[refer my first post in the same thread].

b. TRAI doesnt maintain such records so it not be fruitful to approach TRAI in the case.

b. This thread is not about getting a call record.

 

Seems you misread my query.

See, If a private body is governed by Govt. body, you can ask Govt body for pieces of information regarding the private body.You can establish truth on basis of this information. Pieces of information requested under RTI to the government body for a private body must lie in public domain.

 

refer:U/s 2(f): " "information" means any material in any form, including records, documents, memos, e-mails, opinions, advices, press releases, circulars, orders, logbooks, contracts, reports, papers, samples, models, data material held in any electronic form and information relating to any private body which can be accessed by a public authority under any other law for the time being in force;.

      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.

      Can the General Diary of the police station where particulars of "All the details in r/o criminals arrested and entry of arrival/departure of all enrolled police officers on duty with nature of their duties, duty performed and places visited etc."   are maintained be inspected and photo copies sought from a particular police station under RTI?
      Is there any particular clause/section that needs to be quoted for inspection under RTI? Any format available for inspection under RTI?
