    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.

    One cannot argue with idiots. Go for second appeal as there is no justification for Public Authority's reason for such denial.

    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.

    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.

    You may file two such same RTI applications once again, one in your name, and another in the name of your friend. The one that is filed by you would be signed by you and the other which is filed in the name of your friend would be signed by him. The RTI applications would be exactly the same. Let the PIO pursue his point of view, at the same time, you too pursue your point of view (i.e. first appeal, second appeal, complaint etc.) for seeking the requested information.

    You have such burning in your heart and certainly, you can learn more lessons out of these dilatory tactics to evade the law. Next time take as many photographs as possible with all locations, send them through whats app to the commissioner. After a day search those banners and send photograph after such claim. Removing banner is a different thing, but taking action is the law. Insist and demand what action was taken for the erection of such banners illegally. For example, someone was caught while pickpocketing and that pickpocket returned the purse, can you say that there is no crime involved as money was returned. NO...Some action has to be taken for persistent violations. Next time prepare the complaint pucca and do not give scope for such evasive replies from MC. The next time file a PIL direct to HC. I know that your MADRAS HC is serious about these violations and came strong on such violations at Madhurai and other places.

    Now that you have become expert and commenced running do not look for support for walking. FAA orders as I understand is directing PIO to collect such information from EESL and not performing a post office job of sending FAA orders meant to him. Make further addendum to FAA stating the misfeasance of PIO who failed to collect the information and instead just passed on the buck as earlier, and continued to harass applicants. Invariably mention all your efforts in you final addendum right from step one, dates of visits, response etc. till PIOs postman job.

    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.

    Make a complaint by Regd post with such photographs and other proofs like receipts given by him etc. to Drugs inspector
  19. 1 point
    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.

    Please do not send attachments unless it is most essential, as many readers do not have time to open the attachments, download, read and give such advises to members. Post the facts in brief and up to the point instead of attaching pages and pages or pasting such large data of information which readers find it irritating to read in small mage type.

    Unless the matter is of corruption or some other offense they use this section, and the only remedy available is to establish larger public interest and going for the first appeal. If you have strong evidence that the investigation is not a proper report to Lokayukt.

    This is not unusual, but what are the reasons for posting this twice occupying so much space and what you wish to convey through this post- as information is 17 years old (19-4-2002) While making a post, look that someone gets knowledge or readers should learn something out of the post.

    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.

    Then the process must have been first to complain against that candidate to Railways, wait for a month, seek information on action taken against your complaint through RTI. Then depending on that quoting all the efforts so far stated seeking information in the larger public interest through RTI for such qualification certificate. There your role as Reporter to expose the disqualification after all your efforts through proper channel reflects. I am sorry as I do not know that qualification certificate copies are part of joining report and service book of Railways. That is the reason I suggested Ms.Raveena Oberoi reference as she is the most competent person on this judgment as she is representative of CPIOs and authority on Railway matters. The SC Judgment now quoted by Railways is based on the most controversial judgment that brought waves in RTI known as Girsh Deshpande case, and there are lakhs of denials stating this Girish Deshpande judgment of SC. Establish larger public interest and then seek such information. There were never exemptions in RTI Act for any larger public interest matters.

    Please do not quote in each post, as it increases the space in the thread and it serves no purpose and makes the posts appear longer without any value addition. At this age, you can only pity for poor knowledge of great authority like CVC and mention that CPIO is not providing information in laid down the format of DOPT and not providing mandatory appellate particulars as grounds for your first appeal. Focus only on information and avoid finding small mistakes/ errors though they are violations of DOPT directives. But, it is the applicant's duty as RTI Org member to point out such violation so that he can correct his mistake. While pointing out deviations confine such to mention and your appeal must be simple and directed to information only. it should not appear like pointing out a finger to CPIO. CVC website has given that CPIO and FAA particulars, take some trouble. At least you could bring their attention to such corruption, and the primary objective is already achieved and accountability remains. Good work. Now you are insulating against a port trust complaint that you are a disgruntled contractor, as you are dedicated to other depts., and bringing out larger public interest, which is certainly a plus point when you argue before CIC. You are in the right direction. If you can afford also seek inspection, they will gladly permit you, you will be learning more through their records and can more copies then you hoped for. I have attended CVC inspection,, people are cordial. Also attend CIC hearing, as it gives you the opportunity of knowing the functioning of CIC, and gives you more courage.

    In RTI we have to use the laid down process, If PIO has provided that information in writing, then go for first appeal seeking directions to PIO to provide the details of that work for which the funds were diverted, and the authority that sanctioned the amount, and the authorities that permitted for such diversion of funds and a copy of that approval/permission for diversion. I propose for another RTI if PIO has provided that information.
  28. 1 point
    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. We all missing the most valuable services of Super Moderator Raveena as she is the authority in Railway matters. Kindly search in her profile and send the query as a personal message, as she is the most competent person that can provide authentic guidance in matters relating to Railways.

    Janab, Think practically. I am a stranger and I am not aware what is that information and the document you have solicited. It is you that suspect that that information is available with PIO and he has provided incorrect information that the document sought is not available in the file. You are suspecting a PIO and you know where that document must have been if it is really available. Members can only provide general guidance and exploring such possibilities rests on the member.

    You can do both things. File Fresh application with that authority that may be having such medical report as they might have submitted the same either to Police or some dept., Ask your friend to file a fresh application seeking information as follows: Information solicited: 1. Please provide a copy of the Register that states the receipt/issue of Accident /OP Ticket/Medical examination on...... Continue the first appeal stating the facts known to you and pray for directions to PIO for providing the information and for inspection. In India, you have several touts and unofficial channels that work for a fee to get any information without any difficulty manage with them by personally contacting them.....

    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.

    Registration number is mandatory. Insurance is not. As you have filed the second appeal, let Commission say it is confidential information not to be shared. Providing information prior to such visit may be confidential. But providing it after the trip becomes an entry in a register and must be provided.

    Immediately send a confirmation if you wanted to appear for a hearing. "As per conversation with Shri.................on......................at...................., the appellant of First Appeal dt....... was asked to appear for the first appeal for hearing on....................at....................... Please send a written confirmation to the appellant by email to....... and ensure PIOs presence as the burden of providing information is on PIO" The experts in the forum always advised that attending personal hearing brightens the chances of getting information at the earliest and saves a lot of further steps in second appeal, time and money. Appearing for hearing is not mandatory. It is a courtesy to inform FAA to report your inability for hearing.

    The Chief Electoral Officer in the District is District Collector. You can file RTI Application to SPIO, District Collector's office and send it by Registered post. The authorities whoever receive your application is under obligation to transfer the same to that concerned Public Information officer. You can seek such information in one sentence. Information solicited: 1 Please provide the certified copy of the document, ID of applicant basing on which the following names were deleted in the election list. District. Constituency Ward No....Booth No Name of voter. No in card address. There were several notifications from Election commissioners to search in their website for their names and they have given time and accepted applications for voter registration well in advance. Even CM of a state could not get that information as informed by him in press conferences.

    Always adhere to the sound principle of focussing on information and making the second appeal as brief as possible. If PIO and FAA denied that information and not considered as Life or Liberty clause, then you can submit the same during arguments in personal hearing. If you have quoted the citation to PIO and FAA, then you can attach the same to your present second appeal. However, there is no bar or prescription for enclosures in the second appeal. In second appeal the mandatory documents to be shown as chronological index events at the beginning of the second appeal with self-attestation. (Attested true copy and below signature for all documents) 1.RTI Application dt...........with service proof Page No. 2. SPIO response dt........... Page No. 3.

    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 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.

    On numerous occassions government hospital staff stated that CT scan, MRI scan and other scan machines are not working,I thought that sub-standard machines must have been procured or technicians are lethargic in raising a repair request with maintenance company.However, your post reveals that they have colluded with private hospitals and not reparing the scan machines. My focus is on drafting a RTI application on scan machines and other medical equipments, their current working conditions, number of scans taken per year etc. Will draft an RTI application and post it here for review

    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.
