  3. The employee can get such a copy as he is entitled to get that information. For his relatives and outsiders that is a personal record and in between employer and employee and there is no larger public interest involved. However, in case of a deceased employee, the nominee can seek such information. As a formality, if such a request is received PIO should seek comments from the concerned employee if a third party seeks such information.

  4. My suggestion is never file a complaint to IC under Sec.18 as you are not entitled for information. Wait for minimum 45 days from date of posting for FAA orders .Go for second appeal under Sec.19, In every case, one party should send a copy that was filed before authorities to opposite party, giving him an opportunity to know the Grounds for such appeal. Prepare the set, first send the second appeal copy only to PIO by Regd post. Paste that postal receipt on your office copy, Get it xeroxed and confirm in second appeal that copy of appeal was sent to PIO vide Registered post

  7. The answer to your question lies in the proviso to section 24. That is to say that, if you can sufficiently allege corruption and human rights violations then you can go in for a first appeal on that ground. I have quoted section 24 herein above for your immediate reference and perusal.

  8. Your Public Authority must be maintaining its records in some organized form, duly indexed and catalogued, otherwise all the available data becomes a mere garbage. You can invite the RTI applicant for an inspection and during the course of that inspection provide him with a copy of such index and catalogue, so that, he can go through it and identify the required information. Once the information is so identified during the course of inspection, you can provide the RTI applicant with a photocopy of the requested information.

  10. I am afraid that even before enactment of RTI, Bankers are bound by "secrecy of maintaining customer". The customer may be a person or organization. Instead make a complaint to RBI stating of funds lent are being diverted to real estate. Cash credit account funds has to be used mainly for the purpose for which such credit facility was sanctioned and certainly if such amount was diverted to unproductive and speculative real estate purpose it is certainly indiscipline. All this from NPA customer may be branded as harassment under RTI. Focus on issue and relief and not dis

  11. Grounds for Appeal: SPIO has not provided correct, complete and relevant information to any of the 6 queries, though the material must be available in the forum it is requested. Denial not justified. PRAYER: Appellant prays for inspection of the entire file and directions to SPIO to specifically state as to whether such records against query is really available in the form of material in custody of public authority, and for directing SPIO to provide information as expeditiously as possible.

  13. That is the reward for seeking information from RTI from SIC !!!!! Mere exposing some one is not a remedy as you do not derive any benefit except satisfying your ego. One can not ignore the enormous influence at the disposal of public authority that is at the disposal of BMC, who violates all rules and takes law into the hands. Unless there is a mistake apparent apparent on the face of it, IC can not review it. No IC admits such mistakes. The only option is going for a writ before High Court.

    • Instances that involve disclosure of sensitive information, it may be rationale for the CPIO to ask for citizenship proof
      Information Commissioner Divya Prakash Sinha held that seeking citizenship proof in case of demand of sensitive information is justified but seeking a signed copy of the application does not seem appropriate as the online portal does not mandate uploading of signatures.
      Sinha was hearing the plea of an Odisha-based RTI applicant who had sought from the Army information regarding implementation of rules under the Sexual Harassment of Women at Workplace (Prevention, Prohibition and Redressal) Act, 2013 in all defence establishments.
      The Army did not provide any information to the applicant, the CIC noted. Akhand approached the Commission with a complaint that the central public information officer (CPIO) of the Army has demanded a signed copy of his online RTI application as well as identity proof before providing him the records.
      “In this regard, it may be noted that as far as CPIO’s request for citizenship proof is concerned, the same is not questioned as Commission in its prior decision(s) has held the view that Armed Forces stand on a slightly different footing as there may be instances that involve disclosure of sensitive information, and for such reasons it may be rationale for the CPIO to ask for citizenship proof,” Sinha noted.

    • Some of you -- at least CJ Karira, who helped me years ago in one crucial step, getting SEBI to acknowledge its own circular! -- know of a 15-year quest among desi academics to get SEBI to release its stale masked FII data for academic research. At one point years ago a parliamentary query by Shyam Benegal, then Rajya Sabha MP, sought the release of this data for academic research. He then made a subsequent RTI query asking what had done about his complaint about the terrible answer he got to his parliamentary question. We thought we had succeeded when in response to that SEBI did put in public domain that FII data and promised to update. And to  their credit, they did update it from time to time, even if a bit fitfully. But thanks to a question by a curious IIT-Madras undergrad, we realized that what SEBI gave with one hand they took away with another. While the idea was that the FII IDs would be masked to preserve privacy, without telling anyone, SEBI changed the masks each month, drastically reducing the value for academic research (since you can't even tell how many distinct FIIs are there in the data base, and whether anyone traded over time). It also caused mistakes in academic research since no one imagined that SEBI would use changing masks, when no other regulator or exchange on the planet does so.

      To get SEBI to finally agree to not hide by changing masks, but to keep a stable mask, has taken many years. But at least per the ruling received yesterday, it has been achieved, with no violence to anyone. I attach the ruling. I can also post the various submissions made at the Second Appeal hearing if there is any interest (need to scrub email-IDs, per the policy of this site).

      Addendum_To_CIC_2nd_appeal_28th_February_2020.pdfThis RTI site, in particular Karira-ji, has been very helpful to me in the course of this long episode thru countless RTI queries. And I am grateful for that from the bottom of my heart. I am confident we will see quite a few PhD dissertations using this database within the next few years.
