RTI to find out Welfare Schemes of TamilNadu





Tamilnadu govt announced welfare schemes for the year 2012-13 for Adi-dravidar people http://www.tn.gov.in/citizen/adtw.pdf

In that section 2.1 states that Adidravidars/tribes/converted christians are exempted from payment of Tution Fees. But students are asked to pay their tution fess in colleges, when asked to HM/principal they reply as if there are no communication to them even when the copy is shown and they cannot do anything unless they get some formal communication.

When the problem is raised with some personnel in collector's office they said "NO fund is been allocated, so we cannot do anything".


If an announced scheme doesn't exists they why it is there in the books of records of Tamilnadu government?

      Can the General Diary of the police station where particulars of "All the details in r/o criminals arrested and entry of arrival/departure of all enrolled police officers on duty with nature of their duties, duty performed and places visited etc."   are maintained be inspected and photo copies sought from a particular police station under RTI?
      Is there any particular clause/section that needs to be quoted for inspection under RTI? Any format available for inspection under RTI?

      The person in the article below is me. I had a corporation official visit my house with the RTI and asking for my whereabouts. However the PIO has sent a reply on 8/5/19  stating that AE Div 170 is the person responsible for inspecting the banners on the particular stretch. It is after finalising this reply that I had got a call from AE Div 170 on 8/5/19 evening and a person visited my house on 9/5/19. The reply sent by PIO dated 8/5/19 was received on 11/5/19.
      Further The AE has stated that he has inspected the stretch and removed illegal banners immediately. However I have material evidence that the banners remained in the same place from afternoon till late night. Only the persons who kept the banner had removed them. So can I penalise the PIO for providing false and incorrect information.
