1) You can get a soft copy if it is available with the CAG office or if the officer is willing to scan it for you. You can definitely get a hard copy.

2) You have to pay Rs 50/- for getting the report in CD. For hard copy, if any price has been fixed for the report then you will have to pay that or else you will have to pay Rs 2 per page for photocopying.

3) Generally you don't need any ID proof, but you can keep a copy of your passport, just in case.

4) They get a maximum of 30 days to provide you the information sought. This will be increased by the number of days you take to pay the cost of information after their intimation for the same.

5) You will need to file an RTI application with the PIO of CAG office. For details on how to draft and file an RTI application please read our RTI Guide section thoroughly. Since you will be personally visiting the office you can pay the application fee of Rs 10 in cash. Remember to take a receipt for the same.

 

However, I am assuming that the report is not so confidential as to have threats to India's security if divulged in public. If that is the case the report will not be given to you.

 

Feel free to revert in case of further queries.

These are part of C&AG's Audit Report. It is an absolutly public document in the public domain. It will be interesting to know how the report reached at this stage. When the audit objections vis-a-vis recommendations made by the audit authorities under C&AG to make good the loss by persons responsible is ignored despite repeated persuations, this comes up before the Public Accounts Committee chaired by the Leader of the Opposition. When they also fail to sort out the issue, the C&AG has only on choice .ie., to bring it to the notice of '" WE THE PEOPLE OF INDIA" telling us "Look chum ! this is what the government you chose to elect to Rule you has done with your hard earned money" This report is called Audit Report meant to be accessibile to public but we do n ot get their copies so easily unless try to get it. The media is suppossed to give wide publicity' but .....

Antony admits India's aerial vulnerability - Yahoo! India News

 

Now i want a copy of this report

A day after the Comptroller and Auditor General (CAG) pointed out that India's security was vulnerable to hostile aerial attacks, Defence Minister A.K. Antony has acknowledged that obsolete and insufficient number of radars held by the Indian Air Force constitute "a serious problem". Antony said, "The process of induction of radars began in 1991, but we were not able to provide the necessary air defence equipment due to diverse reasons.

 

So what say you guys?

These are not that critical at all as the C&AG consider.. Our Defence Forces are quite capable of tackling such cituations. They are much capable than the Auditors think to ensure defence preparedness, Submarine or No submarine. Man Behind the Weapon has always been the acme of Indan Armed Forces over others.

 

Mr.AK Antony still fail to realise the greatest damage he has caused with his inability to protect the Ezzat and breaking the morale of the backbone officers of the Defence Forces . 6 Pay Commission has achieved with a stroke what the Pakisthan Army could not achieve in 60 years, 3 wars and innumerable intrutions.. The Ezzat of the Officers are hurt when the Lt Col/Cmdr/Wg.Cmdr on pay scale No.25 is placed under Superintendenting Engineers in the lower pay scale No,24 by putting the juniors in PB-4 and the senior Lt Col etc on lower pay scale PB-3. The Indian Armed Forces have never bargained for more pay nor doing it now nor will do any time. What they are seeking is their IZZAT. The Lt Col/Cmdr/WgComdr are already drawing more than the maximum of the pay scales they are put.in by 6 PC Similarly the reduction in pension is made 25% to 50% in respect jawans who take civil employment in lateral absobtion. Will anyone pardon this harakiri done to the defence forces ?

Tejaswy,

Pardon me for being a bit of a politically affiliated man.

 

It not one man to blame .....its is the rulers for the past 50 years to blame for this state of the armed and navy forces.

 

Tejaswy,

Been there done that.

Not there.As a matter of fact there is no section called "Ministry of defence" So no point.

I am more interested in the scandal of clothing provided to jawans in saichen glacier.

 

 

One more thing i have been through the website of the Lok sabha and Rajya sabha.....nothing there too..These website are so ill manged.....A webmaster, like me,is having troubles navigating through the website and i can just guess what a normal man has to face.

 

One last help

Do i need to mention the name and the serial number of the bill in my RTI application, I don't know exactly the name and the thing it is called ...

 

Rest assured once i get my hands on it (Evil laughter,,,,,, Muaaahhhhhahahahhah) I will get a soft copy and upload it here and on my website

No Tejaswy. Now it is one man show only. When he was the CM of Kerala he used to threaten his resignation for the drop of a hat. This time despite, all the Chiefs together pleading him (unprecedental) what he has done ? If the FM and PM were not listening to him what stopped him to say that he is resigning ? This time he and he alone is responsible for the damage to reach at this stage. He failed and not seems doing anything to retrieve the cituation. It does not need any GoM as done. All he should have said is that there should not be any degradation of IZZAT or redutions .

Both of us know the hard restriction put by the GOI in accquiring mil tech,NO middle men ...and a tech purchase over a certain amount ...it comes under transfer of technology (TOT).Remember the Aero banglore show which took place a long time back fot the purchase of 128 MCRA ....what the hell happened to that ?

 

The jet still has not been chosen..I mean what the hell ...all of them are equally capable jets chose any one and get on with it. BUt noooooooooooooooooooooooo

Its been 3 years on and still a ******* jet has not been chosen.

 

Let me say a jet will be chose any time next year (that is the best answere a govt has ,next year) it will take another 10 years to bring the Technology here in india and another 5 years to get the jet out of the production line

 

 

What was the point i was trying to make here ...I forgot!!

 

O ya,I will agree with you if you agree with me [:D]

 

 

May be that is why?

      Recently I booked tickets on Air Deccan and Indigo for my mother.
      The tickets were booked on yatra.com and paid for by Credit Card.
       
      The cost of the ticket was shown as "Passenger Fare" and "Taxes". The taxes are approximately Rs. 1725.00 for each ticket.
       
      From experience, I know that these "Taxes" include Passenger Service Fee, Airport Tax, User Charges, Fuel Surcharge, Additional Fuel Surcharge, Security Charges, etc...."
       
      Due to health reasons, my mother could not make the trip.
      While cancelling the tickets, BOTH the airlines deducted the "passenger fare" part of the cost (which is correct, since the tickets were clearly non-refundable). However, BOTH the airlines told me that for the "taxes" part, they will only issue a voucher that can be used by the same passenger within 180 days and on the same airline.
       
      My thinking is that all these so called "taxes" become payable when a passenger actually travels. These "taxes" are collected by the airline, on behalf of the Government and to be paid to the Government when the passenger actually flies. They cannot collect taxes, not pay to the Government and moreover not refund to the passenger, but ask him to utilize this amount through a voucher which is non-transferable.
       
      Some research showed me that both Air Deccan and Indigo owe the Government huge amounts in taxes which they have not paid and also owe large amounts to the Airports Authority of India (AAI) for parking fees, navigation fees etc, which also they have not paid and are long overdue.
       
      I would like to know the following information through a RTI :
       
      1. When do these "taxes" actually become due ?
      That means , when are the airlines actually supposed to pay to the Government or the appropriate authority ? Are they supposed to pay the Government within a stipulated time period of collecting the amount OR only after a passenger flies ?
      2. Can someone collect taxes on behalf of the Government , not pay the Government and then also not pay back the passenger ?
      3. What are the relevant rules under which, someone who collects money on behalf of the Government and misuses the funds, can be penalised ?
      4. How much do these airlines (and others too) owe the Govt. on "taxes" and AAI on other charges ?
      Since how long are these payments overdue ?
      What action has the Govt. or AAI taken against these airlines ?
      If no action, why not ?
      When will action be taken ?
       
      Whom should I address my RTI application to ?
       
      Ministry Of Finance, Ministry of Civil Aviation, DGCA or AAI ?
       
      Can members please guide me.
       
      I was told that these procedures are in place by most airlines since mid October. Members and guests should bear this aspect in mind before booking tickets and check with the airline before paying for a ticket.

      How does one go about finding the breakup of the taxes on our tickets ? I read somewhere that airlines charge it as tax and pocket the money. I would like to know how to find out more about it !
