    Unfortunately every citizen is having his own personal matters to be taken care of and hardly have personal time to spend with families at a place like Mumbai. In addition this goondaism and group fights , extortions and threatening are usual. BMC corporators are more powerful than MLAs of other districts. If any citizen is having such time, he should file RTI Application and seek information on full details of unauthorised construction, locational address, present status, action taken, pending in Court and the officials responsible for such negligence in duties. In this forum, I have seen such extra ordinary follow up through RTI and then bringing into logical conclusion through PIL by our esteemed member Mr.Bali and he has contributed more insights into tackling this problem. Because of his vast knowledge, perseverance, he could do that at his personal expenses in Punjab state, but in Mumbai we can never dream of that. Why only Mumbai, it is there in Thane, Kalyan and even in Dombvilli also.

    Certainly, you have done a crime. But your motive is not for any unlawful gain to you or unlawful loss to anyone. Though your friend's letter can not erase/wipe your crime, he is the affected person, and if he has no objection, nothing can happen to you. Do not fear and always use your own name. If you are worried about your safety, request your friend to sign his name as an applicant. Keep silent and nothing can happen. Never do that again.

    Make all attempts, do not assume things, let them state their objections if any. Continue your efforts and do not get doubts as you are not investing any huge amounts. It costs only Rs.22/- for a Registered post.

    The citizen has the right to seek information only, and the rest is left between PIO and SIC. The duty of a citizen is using first appeal and second appeal only and making representation to CIC. Represent material facts to IC and seek information. These are not loopholes and in fact, no PIO is caring for RTI sincere implementation. The penalty is left to the discretion of IC killing the spirit of RTI Act and the act is just a paper tiger. which PIO can just blow with his breadth.

    Just go ahead and file the first appeal on the following grounds (keep it short and simple): Grounds of the First Appeal: 1. That, the information sought against each of the points of request for information is unique and not a repetition. 2. That, the information sought against each of the points of request for information are all public documents and hence the exemption of section 8(1)(d) (commercial confidence) does not apply. Prayers: 1. Kindly direct the PIO to provide the requested information forthwith. 2. Kindly direct the PIO to provide the requested information free of cost in accordance with the letter and spirit of section 7(6) of the RTI Act.

    You have never stated about the incomplete inspection and their orders for completing the inspection on some other day. Unless you get a confirmation in writing about the day, time and contact officer, never visit public authority's office. The security is performing its duty. They have to contact the concerned officer over the phone, prepare a pass with the signature of such officer, mentioning the purpose of the work, duration, etc., and after inspection, the concerned officer has to sign the pass and it should be returned back. You can also register your visit in the Visit book kept at the security gate. When you are in RTI, do not think of saving on postage as personal visits frequently to a public authority is not advisable. You are fortunate. Once I went for inspection to a Ministry at New Delhi after receiving such written permission, the concerned Addl. Secretary left to Dehradun for training. After traveling 32 hours I returned back empty handed and reduced the ordeals in writing, but there is no response from Addl. Secretary. These harassments are usual with Public Sector Oil companies and those officers are located far from the city in outskirts where you do not find transportation and even drinking water. The security personnel permits a citizen only if he is having a valid pass. Focus on information, these are most common.

    Every vehicle that is permitted by RTO states the number of passengers, weight, checks carried out and must display in painting in the vehicle or outside the vehicle, etc. In case of violations, a complaint can be filed by RTO mentioning the Registration vehicle no.... There may be routine checks on high ways both by Police dept., and every year by RTO for fitness certificate. First, get the details from RTO through certified copies and then report violations.

    In this forum, both PIOs and citizens are treated the same and the spirit of RTI Act is important. Forum is always impartial and members are guiding only on precedents. I appreciate the sincerity of PIO member/FAA as they wish to know the correct position, without denying information on invented grounds and seeking clarification. These kinds of gestures to learn more reduces burden both at FAA and Second appeal level. 1. There are different forms of seeking information. ( like Information in letter form, inspection, copies, and certified copies ) If the information was sought in the form of certified copies, it should be given only in that form. In this specific case, website information downloading is not difficult, but the applicant can not get such certified copies as applications are never uploaded. There are several instances, whenever certain information is required on such card holders, Civil supplies department deleted such information from the website. Advising applicant to download is not improper but not correct without confirming himself whether all that information is really available in the website or not. In one sentence: When certified copies are solicited, PIO has to provide certified copies only. 2. Any document that is received by Public authority to avail welfare schemes becomes a Public record with authority and it is no more personal information. PIO must provide such information in the larger public interest as those citizens not deserving such benefits should not avail Govt subsidy schemes. (But in several cases filed by me they have never provided such information and the stock answer is records not traceable, name deleted) 2. Like any other public record, as the information is not exempted, the documents should be provided to the applicant.

    I do not know how your Sunday post appeared in the forum suddenly to-day. The information sought for you is in the larger public interest and connected with welfare measures of Government. You can go for the first appeal, seek hearing of the appeal. Clearly state the facts that their income certificate references, amount, dates with more clarity. This amounts to falsification and corruption. Clearly inform that any application filed voluntarily by citizens becomes a public document and not third party information and SPIO is misinterpreting a well-laid norm. If FAA fails to give the opportunity of personal hearing, enclose copies and report the matter to collector and state as to how Government schemes are being misused, abused by those undeserving citizens and how officials are corrupt and issuing certificates as they like for reasons not known.

    Please think practically. There is no proof as to when the banners were displayed and PIO may state that the banners were displayed after his visit. You may be seeing in all Chennai streets, whenever some police officer visits, the shops on footpath shifts immediately and after their exit, they come back and settle at their original places. The query So can I penalize the PIO for providing false and incorrect information. appears as immature to me. Please go through Sec.19 and 20 of RTI Act in Tamil. Citizen's right is only for getting information through the application, first appeal, and the second appeal. Citizen is not having such powers for the penalty against PIO. You can only pray IC and as IC is a practical bureaucrat himself, understands the issue, and supports PIO and never penalize him. Ordering penalty is rarest of the rare case and the issue is between PIO and IC and the appellant has no right to rule.

    Send first appeal immediately as date of PIO response was 25-4-19 and including postal transit period it may exceed 30 days. As a formality just write single sentence in as Point No.3. 3. Please condone the minor delay of a few days as the appellant is preoccupied with some other family/work pressures.

    There may be several reasons including compromise in the form of Hafta. Once it is brought to the attention of drug inspector by a citizen with such proofs of photographs, receipts etc., Drug inspector must take action. The duty of a citizen is only to bring such lapses to higher authorities. The answer by any Government servant is simple, they are having other important works also. Once it is brought to the attention of authorities, not taking action is serious.

    First, file another complaint to DC stating that Collector has not complied/obeyed the orders of DC and request him to take necessary action for wilful disobedience of reasonable orders of superior. You can also point out that as it is a criminal offense, not taking action within limitation period may affect the criminal action. DC might have just forwarded the complaint about further investigation/inquiry in the matter. Wait for a month, file a complaint against all the concerned before Lokayukta. You can search website for the laid down process for filing such complaints/petitions against public authority.

    Never go explore without exhausting all options.

    Please provide clarification as to whether you have sought same information earlier and whether PIO has provided such information and reasons for such denial. After giving such clarification you can explore the possibility of going for the first appeal as CPIO has not justified reasons for the denial and just quoted a section and I do not personally think that CPIO has the information in a fiduciary capacity at any stretch of wild imagination. I am also shocked to know that APIO has denied the information when he is not having such powers under RTI Act. Only designated CPIO can provide or deny information and API's denial is most unjustified and illegal, his action is ultra vires.

    You have to go for appeal and in another post, such guidance was already given. PIO may invent and say a hundred things. But, whether those exemptions were as stipulated in RTI Act and whether CPIO has justified for denial must be decided by CIC. If that information is available in the office, file another RTI application and seek information through the form of inspection. or act over smart, If that information through the document is available in a certain file. Let that friend from another place seek certain other information in the form of inspection, let him mark that letter for providing certified copy and produce them before FAA and IC.

    The digital landscape is ever changing. It exists in a constant state of evolution and revolution, driven by new innovations. For consumers, this means more convenience, more choice and greater access. For businesses this means improved productivity, more efficient processes, faster problem-solving with greater accountability and a wealth of opportunity. Threats to your business’ cybersecurity are also in a constant state of change and evolution. With each year it seems that one business or another has been brought to its knees by malware, security breaches, and data theft. Just as legitimate software developers are constantly at work devising and refining efficient digital solutions, so are their criminal counterparts. Fortunately, for every digital malcontent trying to compromise the networks of legitimate businesses, there’s a cybersecurity engineer hard at work on pre-empting their malicious attacks. Nevertheless, it is important for business owners to make themselves knowledgeable about the issue of cybersecurity and the tools at their disposal as we head into a new year.

    Go for the first appeal to FAA. Read Sec.7 (1)in Telugu. The act stipulates rejection can be made only under reasons specified in Sec.8 or Sec.9. Sec.8 or Sec.9 never state that rejections can be made with such reasons as "the record has been searched but could not be traced" is a valid reason, every Public information officer can reject such application stating such invented reason for rejection. First Appal dt....under RTI Act Before: First Appellate Authority, State Archives and Research Institute, Telangana............. Against: State Public Information Officer, State Archives and Research Institute, Telangana.......... Appellant: Grounds for Appeal: SPIO has rejected the RTI application stating a reason unknown in RTI Act. Sec.7 (1) stipulates rejection can be made only under reasons specified in Sec.8 or Sec.9. SPIO has invented a reason for denial unknown in RTI Act. It appears that the concerned officer is not aware of fundamentals in RTI Act and DOPT prescribed a form of response/denial and SPIO failed to provide further appeal procedure as per Sec. 7 (8) SPIO is most irresponsible in his duties and acted negligently. PRAYER: Appellant prays for directions to SPIO for tracing the record and for providing it as expeditiously as possible without any fee. Appellant also prays for directions to PIO on Sec. 7 (8).

Appearing for hearing is not mandatory. It is a courtesy to inform FAA to report your inability for hearing.

    As per definition of CP Act, the RTI Applicant is a consumer, no doubt. Cases were also decided by District Consumer Forums & NCDRC. It is a fact that all efforts made and how SC has not even entertained RP against NCDRC decision. Finally the SC has rejected the Appellant's plea against NCDRC. But pending all this, it is surprising that the Karnataka State Information Commission and A.P. Information Commissions have issued instructions in the year 2011 and 2012 to the State Consumer Redressal Forms of Karnataka & A.P. "not to entertain RTI Petitions under CP Act' and on the basis of these instructions, the District Consumers Redressal forums in these States are not entertaining the RTI Petitions under CP Act, 1986. .

    In the post you have asked for "Strongly worded RTI Application" and in content, you have asked for strongly worded letter/complaint. I am not aware as why anyone wants such strongly worded correspondence to any Government official and to my knowledge such strongly worded creates bad relations with Govt. First, Officials are irritated by RTI Application that questions their actions and explanations, and if it is in strong words, they go into shells and never co-operates in the matter. In my experience, I have never found a favorable response for a strongly worded RTI Application and never heard that such strongly worded application gets an immediate response. Under RTI information should always be the focus and building up personal relations through simple, polite and pointed correspondence fetches respect. You have to file a simple grievance application through Regd post in simple A4 size paper. First step-Lodge grievance by Registered post. I have sought reconstructed property card for property no................................situated at....................in the name of ................from......................, submitted all documents required/demanded from the department and submitted the application on......................... There is no response from your department even after......days. Hence this grievance petition praying for providing the reconstructed property card as expeditiously as possible. 2. Seek information and create a record of your efforts. after 10 days from grievance petition In your case the two queries for RTI are simple 1. Please inform the time frame fixed for reconstructing of property card from date of receipt as per citizen charter. 2. Please inform the reasons for the inordinate delay in providing reconstructed property card to......................as per his application to...... 3. Please inform the list of further documents if any that are required in addition to already provided documents since 1940 According to me, this information is more than enough for your purpose. 3. A complaint before Consumer forum for deficiency of services by dept., even after collecting consideration of Rs....as fees. If you have paid any fees to Public authority you are entitled to get such property card, expenses incurred, complaint expenses and compensation for harassment. You have to send simple Registered notice under CP Act and after one-month file simple complaint enclosing the copy of Notice of CPAct notice and service proof. You need not to pay a single rupee for this exercise and may have to spend not more than Rs.200/- towards stationery, typing, and postage. The format is simple. To .......... office of...... Complaint under CP Act.dt......... I...................s/o.............aged........years resident of ...................do hereby issue this notice/File complaint against............dept., I have sought reconstructed property card in lieu of mutilated property card from.................., remitted Rs.......as consideration/fees and provided all such documents necessary and demanded by dept., The dept., has to provide such duplicate card within a time frame of .....days as per citizen charter. As dept., was negligent in not providing the card even after....days there is a deficiency of service. If the card is not provided within a month from the date of this notice, this complainant will be forced to file a complaint in District consumer Forum praying them for directions for issuing the card, reimbursement of costs incurred for travel and time spent and compensation of Rs.25,000/- for harassment. Complainant. Control your emotions, have patience while dealing with such lethargic officers and continue your perseverance as haste spoils the results.

    What is the present status of your RTI process? If your present query is on filing fresh application, you need no guidance as you have applied for such inspection in the past, and this time either you can request that representative to file RTI Application in his name or file application jointly signed by all three representatives. Please search in the forum as there is a beautiful and useful HC Judgment on such permitting representative in the forum (In previous replies) If I find the time, I will search it for you and provide the link. Please specify whether you wish to file a fresh application in the name of such representative or you wish to file an application to some other public authority as I remember that FAA has refused to provide inspection through a representative in the past and delivered such orders, closing that issue only for the second appeal before Commission. (My last response requesting you to post developments is on the progress in the advice of your HC advocate ON ECONOMIC CELL) This is the link that states HC ruling on permitting representatives.

    Actually, it is the duty of public authority to upload in the website the marks of total candidates selected and marks scored in order of merit and cut of marks. I sincerely feel that seeking that information is not an invasion on personal issues. There are no restrictions in seeking information under RTI Act, and it is every citizen's right. It is the duty of the PIO either to provide the information or deny information stating such clause and justification for using that section and subsection of Sec.8, as to how informing the marks scored in employment test amounts to invasion on the privacy of such person. Sans that justification, simple denial is deliberately malafide. When transparency and accountability are objectives of RTI, it is the duty of public authority to upload these marks voluntarily. If anyone wants information, simply seek that information, if that information is not provided, then immediately come to the forum stating such reason and justification given. Experts then can guide members in filing first appeal and thereafter the second appeal.

    In general, there can never be substandard equipment in high-end products. Before purchasing such equipment, there are many exercises before placing an order. An expert committee makes inquiries, writes to already users about its functioning, calls references from successful bidder, gets opinions of other hospitals in writing, finally the expert committee sanctions while checking all parameters. They mainly take care of initial teething problems, insist for free maintenance during the first year, makes a condition for visit maximum within 24 hours, and even penalize for late functioning. They also maintain a list of those suppliers who are having bad reputation earlier and lists their names in a prohibited list. The second problem is corruption. As getting a break-even point for private hospitals is very difficult as they have to get 100 patients every day and they depend on outside work. Further, due to the change in technology, the latest machines have more features and cost-effective. Even here there are no experts and one technician prepares the report and sends the same to a qualified doctor for his signature. The collector is in charge and a mere reference is more than enough to inquire in the matter. Some hospitals must send email to all concerned and the expert should possibility come maximum within 24 hours and each visit may cost around Rs.10,000/- but for the first year, it is free. There is also lifetime contract say maximum 3 years. Without this equipment, it becomes an ordinary nursing home:, moving a serious patient to an outsider for all those checkups is itself a difficult task as getting ambulance services, waiting and abnormal costs are also posing more troubles to the patient. The proper course is seeking inspection and with a laptop and digital camera prepare a comprehensive report to submit it to the collector and release the report to media if the applicant is genuinely concerned of larger public interest and good use of public money. It takes a minimum of 60 hours for two persons to prepare the report.

    Immediately search the website of the Hospital and seek information on the most important aspects touching larger public interest. You have to locate correct Public Information officer, a format of application and amount of RTI fee to be remitted and such mode. If you have any difficulty to find those details, file RTI Application to Nodal PIO, Collector of the district and you will certainly get information, though it may be late by another 5 days. (Hon Collector is such committee member in running all Govt. Hospitals) Ask about the list of all electronic equipment, date of purchase, the amount spent, the source of funds, present position, expenses spent so far, Any service contract entered, machines not being used for such repairs, pending proposals of identified instruments. The most important aspect is whether equipment are being purchased with the maintenance contract, and the period within which company has to attend for repairs, number of cases being referred to outside hospitals, though the equipment is there but in working. (There is large corruption in these aspects, as some government servants neither due to ignorance or purposefully spoil the delicate equipment, and refer the cases to outside and get their unofficial commission on all such references)

    hello, i have been getting lot of help from this forum. thought i will take some time to write my success story. - we had this long pending flywor work going on in our neighbourhood for close to 3 yrs. it was handled the tamilnadu state highways dept. filed a strong RTI with the state highways,with 20+ points,back in Jan 2016 and got a satified reply wtih all the details and expected completion by 19th Nov 2016 . guess what, it all happened as stated in RTI and the flyover is now functioning from Dec 2016. sad part - this construction is in outskirts - and one of my questions was - how many RTI were filed in regards to this construction work - the reply was NONE in the last 3 yrs. I personally feel this as a success, regardless of what impact that my RTI may have caused on the officials involved in the construction. I now have 2 more RTI pending to be sent out - one for another flyover in chennai and the other for some corruption and menace that i could sense at a NATIONAL HIGHWAY TOLL closely to my location. I expect success in ths as well.

    You can file application seeking for information, inspection with assistance of an expert and for obtaining certified copies. Every information whether it is a policy or not has to be given if not rejected specifically quoting exemptions under Sec.8 or 9. But you can seek copy of file recordings, and report if any but not entitled to questions against of Public Authority through RTI. 1, It can be accepted by some and it depends on prominence of the news papers. Please try to file RTI application before a Public library and ask them to give certified copy of such and such matter in News paper of that day and Page.No. (just my idea) 2.Yes you can seek information on Budgeted projects, estimation etc., under RTI Act. 3.Depending on informatin solicited, PIO will provide you the file in which information sought by you is supposed to be available. If information is not available, then you can then and there make a gist of documents not available in the file and get ack of PIO on your office copy. 4.You can seek concerned file no by naming specific issue/information. Inspection meaning has to be construed that PIO has to provide information in files pertaining to the queries made by you before him.
