Dates, I am tracking on HC website, but interim order are not available on their web. So keep those informed to us. Further if possible get the PIL petition soft copy from Adv. Patwalia and upload here. Good luck.

I think rejoinder is not must, u can directly go for arguments for early disposal, see actually for what the date is fixed. The matter will go long way, the interim orders will give you much relieves from time to time.

Mr. Bali,

 

Taking cue from you, I have filed two writs in High court, which are currently on admission stage. They have pointed out few deficiencies which I am completing that. Shall update about progress as it reaches hearing.....

 

Big thanks to you for providing valued inputs and motivating others .......

 

Complete PIL format, please study it and file your own matter on these lines. Add photocopies of such documents about which you had added about Translation etc as vernacular documents. This is a complete writ petition. Please try it and sure file one matter in HC as a start, so that if some objection comes, you solve it and ones the matter is accepted by Registry, your one goal is achieved. Enter in court room, see the protocol, face the practical problems and become an expert. please do not feel dishearten if the PIL get one or two objections from registry, some time missing of date, hesitation to appear before the Judges and even dismissal of petition. The next time it will meat with success. Try again and again and achieve your goal, and hit the Bulls Eye. Come on and be a Lion of fighting against corruption.

Your message is so soothing for me as if I have found gem after dipping deep in ocean. My aim is actually now fulfilled and I am really thankful to almighty as well as you who have made me a tool for helping others to fight against evils. Go ahead, Sharma Ji and do also attach your PILs files in this thread or start your own thread, do update all dates, proceeding in short and the scans of the interim orders throughout the course of pleadings. This will help more people and a chain reaction will sure start.

 

I wish you all the success in the petition and God will always help you throughout as God help those who help themselves. Have my compliments ones again.

Bali Sir,

It is fact that tireless efforts made by you so fair result has been producing, CONGRATULATION...to set a good examples....

I want to share my views about Dr.Malhotra sir's advice that to be careful to avoid adverse result for taking in public domain about PIL pending in court. I agree that you should be cautious, BUT I believe that you share the productive result with Public about Public interest case admitted on ONLY base of RTI informations. I think there is no contempt of court to share this, it will be contempt of court if, you share your view against court orders / court hearings in public when matter is pending.

 

I want to share one more thing, I never been to high school, i studied upto SSC in Gujarati, therefore instead of filling PIL petition, i wrote simple letter to court, the brief fact is, In the year 2010 I got copy of RTI-reply from Railway department (Mumbai) that cash bail bond amount Rs.500/- was misappropriated by RPF constable instead of depositing in court, I wrote letter to Chief Justice of Bombay high court with set of RTI-replies, i request to set-up CBI inquiry to reveal the facts. Court suo-motu decided to treat my letter as Cr.PIL 29 of 2010, then court under its order dt,29-08-2011 appoint CBI to investigate the scam. CBI investigation reveal High degree scam committed by 27 RPF personnel, RPF created fake bail bonds, misappropriated its amount, constitute fake court at railway station. Now CBI demand to conduct scientific tests on 12 accused RPF personnel out of 27. On internet you can find numbers of articles by search RPF fake bail bond scam, RPF inspector dismiss into fake bail bond scam. RPF fake bail bond scam hearing at Bombay HC.

Salute to you, Mr. Zaveri, Academic Qualification and Education are both different. You are well educated when your submissions are got admitted in the Apex Courts and directions are being issued with so much effect, I give my "Bowing Salute" to you sir, and keep it up, someone has to bell the cat, you,he or me.

Further I personally do not think that putting updates, analyses, opinions on public domain amounts to any COC. Only derogatory remarks against any Honorable Court will Definitely attract Contempt and we should also not defame our sacred institutions.

 

Thanks, Sharma Ji, for the uploads, please do keep updating. I am obliged.

AND FURTHER THE SLOGAN CAN GO LIKE THIS: RTI TO PIL AND TO COCP-Hit THEM IN HEART

 

This is result of my hard efforts and like filing RTI applications, Inspecting Records of Public Authorities, filing Writ to High Court of Punjab & Haryana, and then filing COCP against the erring institutions that now the Municipal Corporation, Amritsar is in the trap. Rather all of the Local Government Institutions like all of Municipal Corporations, all of Municipal Committees and even all of Nagar Panchayats are to observe the law strictly. Especially to make regulations to invite public to witness, watch and observe the whole of business of House of Councillors. Fight and protest with this order of Hon’ble High Court to ask for your admission to Meetings of House at your own City, Town and Panchayat. Only then my efforts will be rewarded actually.

Dear Baliji,

 

Congrats, You are a source of inspiration for people fighting against corruption. I am too fighting against my corrupt organization. CIC is of not much help. So will have to approach the HC with a PIL.

 

Regards

 

Subir

 

 

 

Good news, the PIL 8801, fixed for restoration, (as very 1st case in cause list) was argued by me, and was allowed restored today. Rather Chief Justice was keen to hear the matter on merits too.

The matter was explained and court passed interim order as motion of notice to Government of Punjab, with very strict directions. The copy of order applied and on its receipt , will be uploaded on this thread.

A non advocate arguing and pleading PILs. You too do.

Dear Shri Bali,

 

Calling it PIL has been justified; the order of the Hon'ble High Court was for all Municipal Councils.

 

Starting with Amritsar, some other places can also be checked.

 

Great achievement.

 

Best wishes for more, Sincerely pkaditya

      RANCHI: A PIL was filed by one Surendra Sao of Bokaro in Jharkhand High Court demanding a CBI inquiry against SAIL chairman, BSL MD and former Union steel minister Ram Vilas Paswan in connection with the expenses incurred during Prime Minister Manmohan Singh's visit to the state last year. The PM had come to lay the foundation stone of BSL's modernization and expansion programme.
       
      Sao has challenged the Rs 1.92 crore expenditure incurred by BSL during the visit of the Prime Minister on April 22, 2008. The estimated expense to be incurred by BSL in this programme was around Rs 11,000 crore.
       
      The petition was filed on basis of information collected through RTI from SAIL. The report of alleged misuse of money during the Prime Minister's visit to the state was first published in TOI.

      MADURAI: The Right to Information (RTI) Act, 2005 has exposed the appalling conditions of a middle school in Tiruchi where 195 students were suffering from lack of basic facilities such as electricity, ventilation, toilets and structurally stable buildings.
       
      Disposing of a public interest litigation (PIL) petition filed on the strength of information obtained under the RTI Act, the Madras High Court Bench here on Friday directed the education officials to shift the students to other schools.
       
      The Tiruchi District Elementary Educational Officer (DEEO) was ordered to transfer immediately all 195 students studying in Standard Six to Eight in Sacred Heart Middle school at Pushpa Nagar, Sangiliandapuram, to two other nearby schools.
       
      A Division Bench comprising Justice V. Ramasubramanian and Justice D. Hariparanthaman held that the temporary recognition granted to the middle school, until October 31, 2009, was illegal.
       
      Mr. Justice Ramasubramanian directed the Collector and the Director of Elementary Education in Chennai to inspect the buildings where the school was accommodating students studying in Standards I to V and ascertain whether they had all necessary facilities.
