RTI Application to find out the cost related to changing the name of Bombay to Mumbai

Question

cuullifz

Hi, Can anyone please tell me how do I file a RTI application to find out the cost incurred to state government and centre for each name change of major cities or for start just Bombay/Mumbai...

 

Info I need is in which department do I file the application... (some answer in detail please) and is there a provision for staying anonymous so I dont have to give out my name or address so culprits dont catch hold of me.. Many people want this information but are afraid to get into trouble or some gangster trying to kill them as we have seen of the recent RTI activists.

Firstly why would a gangster try to kill you for seeking information about expenses incurred in a name change of a city ? Was the gangster involved in the name change or did he make money out of the name changing process ?

 

For Bombay/Mumbai you can start with the Chief Ministers office and the GAD - General Administration department.

 

 

You can file a RTI application with the PIO. Details of PIO will be available on the website of the organisation/department, under the "RTI" link. Or simply call that office and ask "Who is the PIO in your office under the RTI Act 2005. I want to file a RTI application." ?

 

Your RTI Application has to be as per the RTI Rules and Fees for Maharashtra.

These are available in the Guide section of the Portal: RTI Guide

 

Please read the other articles in the Guide section as well as the links given in the FAQ here: RTI FAQ

 

These will be of help to you during the RTI process.

      I had sought details of loan and copies of agreement entered with World Bank, JICA etc. of IT Expressway Chennai (created in partnership with Govt of TN) However the PIO has replied that they have moved out of world bank loan and taken loan from other banks details of which cannot be disclosed under 8(1) d of RTI Act citing "commercial confidence".
      However the IT Expressway is a public limited company having entered into agreement with Govt of TN and others for developing and maintaining a particular stretch of road.
       
      Kindly help me frame a good first appeal.

      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.
