Five hearings of CIC could not fetch Medanta Medicity hospital land allotment details

land-for-saleThe Commission in their five hearings had directed CPIO of  HUDA to produce the file notings of allotment of land, application of Medanta, and the prevailing market rate and circle rate of land in that area, at the time of allotment to Medanta Hospital. The best response till date has been “No Control of the Private Hospital” which the commission finds it to be incomplete and misleading information.

Earlier, Sh. Subhash Chandra Agrawal, the Appellant through his RTI application had sought for information in relation to news ­item “Probe medical lapse that killed former CJI” where former CJI Justice MN Venkatachaliah was amongst 34 eminent citizens who have demanded through their letter addressed to P.M to probe into the medical lapse which allegedly killed the former CJI Justice JS Verma.

Two questions in reference to Medanta Medicity which was asked:

Has the hospital referred in query (5) above been provided any other facility or control either from Union government or from the concerned State Government? 8) If yes, please provide details.

9) Has the hospital referred in query (5) above been altered land from Government at some subsidised/institutional either from Union Government or from the concerned State Government?

The commission on 4 earlier occasion had directed to provide the information but in vain. On the latest hearing, Directorate General, Health Services stated that there is no such control exercised by the government over private hospital. CIC reacted strongly stating that

“Such Information has to be furnished and the reply “No Control of the Private   Hospital” is incomplete and misleading information and is in contrary to the provisions of the Act which was enacted to bring about transparency in the working of the Government. The CPIO should act reasonably and diligently”.

Once again the commission directed PIO, Director General, Health Services, Govt. of Haryana and Union Government to explain whether any concession/subsidy/or any other facility was given to this private hospital, and directs HUDA to inform the circle rate of sector 38, at the time of allotment of the land to Medanta Medicity in that circle. The decision is available here!

    RTI is useless and of no use. All I can say is that when no action is taken even by 2nd Appellate Authority against any PIO / FAA for their extreme negligence towards this noble act, then no use of it all. It is just for showing purpose that Government have enacted RTI Act, but it is not at all useful in any manner.

  2. TODAY’S LIFE, RTI FILING IS NOT,SUPPORTED OR GIVEN REPLIED PROPERLY.?WHY.?100% CORRUPTIONS.

  3. TODAY’S WORLD, RTI FILING AS BECOME NO, USE IN OUR, CURRENT, GOVT.
    ONLY WE ARE FILING A CASE, BUT, GOVT IS NOT SUPPORTING US.
    WHO EVER SPEAKS OR WRITES BEEN KILLED OR THREATENED BY CURRENT PM MODI AND BJP GOVT.
