Where will be first appeal after RTI transfer ?

Question

callcenjobs

I had sent an rti application to the central pension office at new delhi. However the matter was transferred to the state pio under section 6. The state pio however had already retired. Also the dept was gutted under the mantralya fire. It has been over thirty days now since it was transferred to the state. Do i file an first appeal to the state, or should i file a complaint to the central cpio for wrongly transferring the matter to a retired pio, or should i file a frsh appeal since the file might be destroyed in the fire.....? Please help

Retirement of PIO does not affect RTI. Some one else will be attending his duty. It is the responsibility of office head. You have to file first appeal with the FAA relevant to PIO to whom RTI is transferred [i.e. State govt PIO]. You may refer:

If the documents have been lost in fire (which is an assumption), let the First Appellate Authority say that in his Decision.

 

Kindly file a first appeal with the concerned First Appellate Authority (State PIO) and wait for the first appeal hearing notice of FAA, and if possible attend the hearing personally on the scheduled date.

      A RTI Application has been replied by an officer signing for PIO. To my understanding it is only the PIO who has to reply under his signature and name.

      Hi,
      Need some clarity on how to draft the RTI for the information asked; Alternatively, please advice what other course of action to pursue?
       
      Background:-
      Case of Illegal Recovery of Pension by Public Sector Bank  (thereafter referred as PSB)
      1) The PSB, the pension disbursal bank mistakenly overpaid the pension to the pensioner for 10 years;
      2) No connivance or misrepresentation from the Pensioner; solely a mistake done by the Bank. 
      The over payment was detected via a CAG Audit, and the mistake of the bank as well was pointed out in the same audit
      3)Now the PSB has started recovering the Pension since last 3 years, illegally.
      4)No recovery order or show cause notice has been ever issued to the Pensioner by the bank or any competent authority
      5)This recovery is illegal as per Apex Court judgement on Rafiq Masih's Case- 
      which states that no recovery can be done after 5 years of continual overpayment
      6) The Pensioner has been forced to go to the court to seek redressal. Case is stuck in the court for the last 3 years
      An RTI Was filed in May 2018/ Information sought and response received are as under:-
      Q-2) Provide the list of all officials and their designation who dealt with this pension matter during Dec 2006 to Dec 2007 at CPPC and PSB Branch
      Q-3) Name the officer who responsible for sanctioning the excess pension
      Q-5) Please provide number of cases in your bank wherein excess amount of pension is being recovered
      Response received (for all three questions, above) from CPIO: As informed by the Branch Manager of your branch : Information is not available
      Q-4) Name the officer who is recovering my excess pension
      Response received : The excess pension has been detected by the Performance Audit Team  under CAG and adviced via audit memo 36 dated XX 
                           to recover the amount of 10 Lakhs which is over paid since  1. 1. 2007. As such bank is recovering now and refunding the authority.
      My Comment on Q-4:
      It doesn't give the name of the officer who is recovering excess. Plus: The Audit Memo from CAG does not talk about recovery at- all. This has also
      been mentioned in the affidavit by the pension sanctioning authority in the court where it states that CAG has not issued any order of recovery. So this response is misleading.
      Unfortunately I was not able to file the First Appeal to the above response.
      Should I file another RTI ? Is re-drafting of the questions needed? The bank is hell bent on shielding its errant officials and protecting them.  Please feel free to advise me on any other course of action as deemed fit. 
      Thank You,
      Andy
