Senior teacher suspended for using RTI act

Kurukshetra: A senior teacher of Kurukshetra University, who had sought some information from the authorities under the RTI Act, has been suspended by the university administration


The reason for the suspension of the electronics teacher, Dushyant Kumar, has not been clarified in the suspension letter.


Kumar and the university administration have been locking horns for the last three years as he had made several representations to the vice chancellor and even to the Governor against "prejudicial actions of the college and university administration", university sources said.


He had also sought some information from the college under the RTI Act which was perhaps resented by the administration, the sources added.

This episode has created ripples among the teachers of the university and the academicians of the state and the rumours of many kinds are afloat about the tussle between the Vice chancellor Dr RP Hooda and Dr LC Gupta who were once close associates in the university but had antagonised their relations lately.

CIC takes a very very serious view of victimization of RTI applicants.

This person should complain to the SIC or CIC.

At least the CIC takes strong views on this...even launching enquiry.

Please see:

Please also see:

Appellant in his letter also mentioned that he would like to place on record the

fact that he was a frequent air traveller and was apprehensive that because of

his action under the RTI Act, his movements would be hindered or obstructed at

Airports in the country. The Commission would like to place this on record and

advise the authorities concerned that no citizen of the country should harbour

any such apprehension. There have been cases of victimization of persons who

had resorted to the RTI. The Commission asks the authorities concerned to

ensure that no such action is taken whereby the applicant of the RTI is made to

feel that he is either harmed or affected in any way because of his action

pertaining to the RTI application.

      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.

      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.
