    The Public Authority must have maintained a register wherein they must have kept a record of all the employees who have filed the said declarations. If a particular employee has not filed his declaration then the Public Authority must have sent a written communication asking him to do so, and likewise there must be other such documents in this regard. Therefore ask for example: 1. A photocopy of the register wherein has been maintained the list of employees who have filed the said declarations under section XX of the XX Act. 2. A written communication made with the employees seeking their declarations. 3. Any written reminder communications made to the employees with respect to point no. 2 above. 4. Similarly point at other documents which you think may be available with the Public Authority in this regard.

    Sir, PIO's reject RTI seeking information regarding State Government Employees assets and declaration .They cite a Hon'ble Supreme Court decision for denial. Can we just file an RTI seeking information as follows 1. Please provide information from records to ascertain whether Corporation Employee XYZ has filed declaration of his immovable/movable assets and liabilities as well as those of their spouses and dependents for the last 10 yrs. Just asking the PIO a YES or No question.Is it permissible or invasion of privacy?

    This is the first time I am hearing the response from PIO, AIR. Yes it must be true as they have rights over their recordings as they might have incurred expenditure and it is an asset of commercial nature..But PIO must have stated such order in his reply that the recording is commercial in nature and rules do not permit sharing with others as per Order no........................(There is no guarantee that it will not be used commercially. In such case a religious leader in AP do not charge single paisa and recognised as the best Authentic speaker on religion. Some one has recorded the audio /Vedio discs and started selling for hefty sums and the sales were thousands in one day but not single rupee was given to him, and finally he was blamed for commercializing and earning crores on such sale of CDS) But at the same do not be disheartened and you will certainly search in YOU TUBE and can find the copy free of cost. If you want further confirmation file rti and seek information as follows: Information solicited: 1)Please provide me copy of your directive or circular or order about not sharing the Recordings with Public under RTI Act.

    You can do two things simultaneously: FIRSTLY DO AS FOLLOWS: 1. File a first appeal with the First Appellate Authority of the first PIO on the following ground: The PIO has transferred my RTI application to another PIO of his (i.e. the same) Public Authority. In this regard, I would hereby like to draw your Hon’ble Authority’s kind attention towards the provision of section 5(4) read with section 5(5) of the RTI Act, 2005, whereby: - As per section 5(4), if the information is not available with the PIO’s Office, nevertheless, it is available within his Public Authority then, the PIO is supposed to seek assistance of other officer as he or she considers necessary for proper discharge of his duties and thereby access the information from that other Office and provide it to a RTI applicant, and - As per section 5(5), for the purpose of any contraventions of the provisions of RTI Act, such other Officer shall be treated as the PIO. Therefore, given the provision of section 5(4) read with section 5(5) the PIO was supposed to have sought assistance of the Officer (if he is from the same Public Authority) in whose custody the information vide this RTI application, was available. In this regard, please also find the decision of Hon’ble Delhi High Court in CPIO Supreme Court v/s. Subhash Chandra Agarwal & Anr., the relevant except of which has been quoted below and is self explanatory: Quote: Para 23. In view of this, the question of transferring an application under Section 6(3) of the Right to Information Act by the CPIO of the Supreme Court cannot arise. It is the duty of the CPIO to obtain the information that is held by or available with the public authority. Each of the sections or department of a public Authority cannot be treated as a separate or distinct public authority. If any information is available with one section or the department, it shall be deemed to be available with the Public Authority as one single entity CPIO cannot take a view contrary to this. Unquote Thus, the PIO has disposed of the RTI application in violation of section 5(4) read with section 5(5) of the RTI Act. Prayers: 1. Kindly direct the PIO to dispose of my RTI application in accordance and in compliance with the provision of section 5(4) read with section 5(5) and further read with section including sub-sections of section 7 of the RTI Act. SECONDLY DO AS FOLLOWS: Wait for 30 days from the date of receipt of your RTI application by the second PIO and if the PIO does not reply or if you are not satisfied with his reply then file a first appeal with the First Appellate Authority of the second PIO within thirty days from the expiry of such period or from the receipt of such a decision. SO, DO THE ABOVE BOTH THE THINGS SIMULTANEOUSLY

    WHAT AFTER DECISION BY CENTRAL/STATE INFORMATION COMMISSIONER There are large number of instances, where the State Information Commissioners are passing orders contrary to the spirit and object of RTI Act and contradicting the laid down procedures. Another issue is the Public Authorities did not comply the decisions of CIC/SIC and the Information Commissions are not strict about enforcing penal provisions under section-20. The Information Seekers feel they were pushed to dead end. There is a common feeling that no appeal lies against decision of State Information Commissioner. Let us examine it. There is also a general notion that Courts have no jurisdiction to entertain challenges arising out of RTI Act. This is not correct. The bar provided under Sec.23 of the Act is specific to entertaining suit, application or other proceedings by lower courts. There is no bar in approaching Supreme Court under Article-32 and High Courts under Article-226 of the Constitution of India. Another aspect is the jurisdiction of individual Information Commissioners to pass binding orders. Sec-19(7) of the Act states that decision of Central Information Commission or State Information Commission, as the case may be, shall be binding. This does not mean that decision is not appelable. The wording of Sec-19(7) denote the decision of the Commission and not the Commissioner. The Commission consists of the Chief Information Commissioner and Central Information Commissioners or State Chief Information Commissioner and State Information Commissioners. The decision of the Central Information Commissioner or State Information Commissioner, as the case may be, cannot be said to be the decision of the Central Information Commission or State Information Commission. The constitution of the Central Information Commission and State Information Commission are defined u/s 12(2) and 15(2) respectively. Section-19(9) provides that Central Information Commission or State Information Commission, as the case may be, shall give notice of its decision, including any right of appeal, to the complainant and public authority. Thus, the legislative intent is amply clear that a right to appeal accrue in favour of Applicant and Public Authority against the decision of Central Information Commissioner / State Information Commissioner. It is pertinent to note that under section-15(4), the general superintendence, direction and management of the affairs of the SIC shall vest in the State Chief Information Commissioner.....etc. In this view this, if the order of the Central Information Commissioner / State Information Commissioner is patently illegal and not in conformity with the provisions of the Act, an appeal can be filed before the Central Information Commissioner / State Chief Information Commissioner for consideration and adjudication by the Central Information Commission / State Information Commission. Section-19(8)(b) provides that the CIC or SIC has powers to require the public authority to compensate the complainant for any loss or other detriment suffered. Consumer courts can also be moved to seek compensation. In addition, the Appellant can also file Complaint under Section-18 before the Commission with specific prayers. Delhi High Court vide decision dt: 28/10/13, distinguished Sec-18 and 19(3) and held that - it is expected that the Commission (CIC) henceforth will decide the complaints on merits instead of directing the CPIO to provide the information which the complainant had sought (see copy of judgment attached below) After disposal of Appeal u/s 19(3) and/or Complaint under sec-18(1) of the Act, the applicant can challenge the orders of the Information Commission by filing writ petition under Article 226 of the Constitution of India.

    When there is no confusion and crystal clear in Sec. 6 (3), you can be the first person to get such decision, if FAA also responds in the same manner. Remember, it is also the responsibility of applicant to file application to the concerned Public Information officer. Seec. 6 (3) Where an application is made to public authority requesting for an information (i)which is held by another public authority. . shall transfer the application or such part of it as may be appropriate to that other public authority and inform the applicant immediately about such transfer. First go through stipulations in RTI Act and then you can go for interpretations in such decisions, as it is not applicant's duty to educate PIO. When Collector has asked SP, it is SP that has to provide that information to Collector by collecting it from his subordinates and SP must be having such copies. Sorry, after reading the entire thread and replies, I am not able to understand exact problem.

    Unfortunately, you have not approached the appropriate forum for issues regarding Voter ID card. First, call up 1950 or 1800111950 and ask for the status and then lodge a complaint at the Call Centre of ECI. Secondly, meet up the ERO (Electoral Roll Officer) who is incharge of issuing the Voter ID card. Take an appointment and explain to him Thirdly, if you are un-heard then contact the Chief Electoral officer of Delhi. You can write to him at ceo_delhi@eci.gov.in Fourthly, use an RTI to find out everything. The problem with the system is the new introduction of a centralised voter ID system called ERONET. The states are protesting as all their Agency hired by them have become defunct and the whole system is online. Be assured that you will get the response and your Voter ID for sure.

    RTI is being butchered at the doorstep of Information Commissions. And How! Vinita Deshmukh 14 March 2018 0 The report that has just been released by two NGOs – Satarka Nagrik Sangathan (SNS) and Centre for Equity Studies (CES) hits the nail on how the Central Information Commissions (CICs) and State Information Commissions (SICs) are mercilessly killing the Right to Information Act (RTI), in more ways than one. The study revolved around the performance of information commissions (ICs) in terms of the number of appeals and complaints registered and disposed of by the ICs; the number of pending appeals and complaints and imposition of penalty; the estimated waiting time for the disposal of an appeal; availability of annual reports of ICs; frequency of violations penalised by ICs and transparency in the functioning of ICs. {subscription_div} All these areas are in a dismal state. The report is based on 169 RTI applications at 29 SICs and the CIC. More details link https://www.moneylife.in/article/rti-is-being-butchered-at-the-doorstep-of-information-commissions-and-how/53385.html An eye opener who still thinks that going for second appeal gets penalties In the end applicant has no say for imposing penalties as Delhi HC ruled that levying penalty is at the discretion of IC and in between PIO and IC. So at the end, if such is the case, why Act says penalty is not known. Also study the recovery of even that 4% cases in which penalty was levied. It is hardly sufficient to pay the salaries of one IC. Now think, if the penalties are levied as per stipulations as to whether the second appeals will come down or not, and whether indiscriminate penalties at one time can make Information commission self sufficient ? and whether stipulation by DOPT for first appeal hearing and for delivering a speaking order further reduces second appeals or not. Who is bothered ? Even such butchered parts of animals can serve to feed to some. Imagine as to appellant has to wait for ten years for second appeal at CIC. It is just like running with the hare and hunting with the hound.

    You are a regular member, and experts several times advise members not to get worried or get doubts even before filing RTI application. First file RTI Application and seek any information you require as filing RTI application is a right and there are no bars in seeking information. Such exemptions apply only to Denial of information by PIO. Come back with such denial, then for proper guidance. Seek list of those employees that have not filed such returns and action contemplated against them for disobeying such stipulations. Do not focus on single one, and see that it reflects some larger public interest, so that you can establish larger public interest, that public authorities are using this mandatory directive as eyewash, ritual and not taking the stipulation seriously to arrest corruption.

    Hearing during second appeal was mandatory. There were no instances reported that a decision was taken without giving opportunity of hearing of second appeal . However, IC may not postpone the once fixed hearing date due to practical problems involved. Even when date is not postponed, written arguments, taking a decision on merits on records submitted by applicant must be considered and IC has to deliver a speaking order.

    मेरठ: मुन्नाभाई को 2 लाख में बना देते थे एमबीबीएस, बदल देते थे आंसरशीट...... मेरठ में व्यापमं की तर्ज पर मुन्नाभाइयों को एमबीबीएस बनाए जाने का गोरखधंधा सामने आया है. STF ने मोटी रकम लेकर एमबीबीएस पास कराने वाले गिरोह के चार सदस्यों को गिरफ्तार किया है. गिरोह चौधरी चरण सिंह यूनिवर्सिटी में चलने वाले एमबीबीएस पाठ्यक्रम में प्रवेश दिलाता था. एसटीएफ के मुताबिक, यह गिरोह एमबीबीएस पास कराने का प्रत्येक अभ्यर्थी से 1.5 से 2 लाख रुपये वसूलता था. एसटीएफ ने बताया कि गिरोह का मास्टरमाइंड चौधरी चरण सिंह यूनिवर्सिटी का पूर्व छात्र कविराज है. कविराज के पास से एमबीबीएस प्रवेश परीक्षा के दो आंसरशीट मिले हैं. कविराज के अलावा हरियाणा का रहने वाला संदीप भी गिरोह का अहम सदस्य बताया जा रहा है, जो एक्सपर्ट्स की मदद से ब्लैंक आंसरशीट में सही उत्तर लिखवाने का काम करता था. गिरोह के अन्य गिरफ्तार सदस्यों की पहचान पवन और कपिल के रूप में हुई है. एसटीएफ के मुताबिक, यह गिरोह 2014 से ही सक्रिय है. इस दौरान गिरोह ने करीब 600 अयोग्य कैंडिडेंट्स को फर्जीवाड़े के जरिए एमबीबीएस प्रवेश परीक्षा में पास करवा दाखिला दिलवाया. हालांकि एसटीएफ को आशंका है कि इस फर्जीवाड़े का लाभ उठाकर और बड़ी संख्या में अयोग्य कैंडिडेट्स एमबीबीएस बन गए. गिरफ्तार आरोपियों से पूछताछ कर पूरे मामले का पता लगाने की कोशिश की जा रही है. क्या हम इस केस को व्यापक उजागर करने के लिए एक कॉमन rti तैयार कर सकते है । ताकि स्केंडल को छुपाया नही जा सके..

    Try and frame your RTI queries in such a way that they point towards documents rather than questions and answers. For example: Kindly provide a photocopy of the following documents / information: 1. Reasons on record for delay in .... 2. Documents wherein has been noted the steps taken so far for payment of arrears to its project vidyalaya. 3. Documents wherein has been noted the norms of the university in respect of paying expenses to the employees of Vidyalaya. 4. If the said norms (ref. point no. 3 above) have not been followed, please provide the documents wherein has been noted the reasons on record for not following the said norms. 5. Reasons on record for shortage of funds for the employees of the vidyalaya. 6. Similarly .... Please note that you can only ask for reason on record under RTI and not ask them to provide reasons to you, a PIO is merely a person who has access to all the files / information of the public authority, who will access such files / information and provide you with a photocopy / information. Please refer to the following link to learn more about it: Drafting queries for seeking information.

    The policy belongs to some other deceased, the nominee or payee is different and a stranger. How can they say invasion on privacy when that a nominee a stranger's personal information belongs to deceased, and the action of a Public authority un settlement of a claim is the issue. How can they use Sec.11 when that party whose information was sought is no more . Make first appeal pointing out the non application of mind of PIO.

    Let some relatives of students or some politicians file a complaint to DEO and let them conduct inspection and test. You can also complain to Collector and ask him for a surprise visit and conducting standards of teachers and students. But the visit must be a surprise and before commencement of school. You may also request collector to introduce CCTV cameras and attendance through digital technology.

    Go for first appeal stating that Sec.8 (1) (j) can not be applied to deny the information, as information is concerning a fraud played on LIC of India and there is corruption in settlement of policy which is not in larger public interest. Accountability and transparency are the objects of RTI Act and when Public Authority, LIC is incurring huge loss due to corruption, as a citizen you can seek that information in larger public interest, and no exemptions can be applied on such information. If you are a legal heir of the deceased then no exemptions can be applied.

    The first step is writing on a paper what information you require and as to whether that information is available in material form as a record. The second step is identifying the custodian of the information (with whom such record is maintained) Then search the website of that Public authority's RTI rules and regulations a)to locate Public Information officer b) format prescribed for seeking information c)mode of remitting RTI fees. Always keep one side A4 page of RTI rules and regulations in your mother tongue with sections 2h, 5,6,7,8 --18,19,20 as permanent record to know stipulations in RTI Act. Before seeking information ensure that this information is not exempted under Sec.8. Even if it is exempted, if there is larger public interest, exemptions may not appy. Learning RTI is very simple and once you file one RTI Application and make a follow up, you can become expert. Members of this forum are always ready 24 x 7 to guide you further in case if you have doubts. All the best.

    पश्चिम बंगाल में आरटीआई के तहत रांगफल डिनायल के लिए 43 साल का इंतजार, केरल में 6 साल निधि शर्मा, कोलकाता आरटीआई के तहत रांगफल डिनायल के लिए पश्चिम बंगाल में हैं कम से कम 43 साल इंतजार का इंतजार करना पड़ेगा। इसके बाद ही शायद समस्या का निपटारा हो सके। यानी अगर आज आप कोई आरटीआई पश्चिम बंगाल में लगाते हैं तो उसका निपटारा 2061 से पहले होने की उम्मीद नहीं है। जी हां, एक स्टडी में यह चौंकाने वाले तथ्य सामने आए हैं जो बताते हैं कि देश में सूचना का अधिकार कानून (आरटीआई) की वर्तमान स्थिति कितनी दयनीय है और सरकारें इसके प्रति कितनी उदासीन हैं। सतर्क नागरिक संगठन और सेंटर फॉर इक्विटी स्टडीज की तरफ से देश के विभिन्न राज्यों में आरटीआई की स्थिति को लेकर यह संयुक्त स्टडी की गई है। इस स्टडी के मुताबिक पश्चिम बंगाल में फिलहाल सिर्फ दो सूचना आयुक्त हैं। स्टडी में यह बात सामने आई है कि पिछले वर्षों में सिर्फ एक सूचना आयुक्त होने के कारण करीब 12 महीने किसी आरटीआई पर कोई सुनवाई ही नहीं हुई। ओडिशा में भी स्थिति अच्छी नहीं पश्चिम बंगाल की तरह ही केरल की भी स्थिति है। केरल में अगर आप आज आरटीआई के तहत कोई सूचना चाहते हैं तो करीब 6 साल तक आपको इंतजार करना पड़ सकता है। ओडिशा में भी स्थिति अच्छी नहीं है। वहां भी आरटीआई के तहत जवाब के लिए 5 साल से अधिक इंतजार करना पड़ जाएगा। और इस दयनीय स्थिति के पीछे जो सबसे बड़ी वजह है वह है कि इन सभी प्रदेशों में सूचना आयुक्तों की बड़ी संख्या में कमी। आंध्र प्रदेश में आरटीआई की स्थिति और भी दयनीय है। यहां का सूचना आयोग आंध्र प्रदेश और तेलंगाना दोनों राज्यों के लिए काम करता है। मई 2017 में मुख्य सूचना आयुक्त और एक सूचना आयुक्त के रिटायर होने के बाद से ही यहां का सूचना आयोग मृतप्राय स्थिति में है। आम आदमी को मजबूत करने के लिए बने इस कानून की स्थिति राज्यों में इतनी कमजोर कर दी गई है कि ज्यादातर मामले पेंडिंग पड़े हुए हैं। सूचना का जवाब मिलना तो दूर आवेदन की वापसी के आंकड़े ज्यादा तेजी से बढ़ रहे हैं। सबसे अधिक मामले तो केंद्रीय सूचना आयोग की तरफ से लौटाए गए हैं। इसके बाद गुजरात, असम और उत्तराखंड हैं, जहां मामलों को निपटाने की जगह लौटाने की संख्या अधिक है। Navbharat Times Hindi Newspaper https://t.co/zuRZZwRTS4 Sent from my Aqua Y2 using RTI INDIA mobile app

    1.The Clause is in fact LIFE OR LIBERTY....not life and liberty. 2.If PIO do not consider the issue under this clause, he may not provide information within 48 hours 3.But the time frame fixed 30 days must be adhered without doubts. 5.He can never reject application on this ground, there is no such rejection of applications. 5)PIO can only deny information stating such Sec.8 or 9 with justification. Members of the forum can not judge or accept or guide on your perceptions. You have made application under the clause, explain such reason for delay and argue before FAA /IC as to how not providing information on Grievance redressal comes under LIFE OR LIBERTY.

    Election Commission of India had started a drive Aadhaar ceeling some 2 years ago. Many States had already done the Aadhaar ceeding with Voter ID card. This excercise was called as NERP National Electoral Roll Purification (2016). As the name implies, the dead voters, shifted voters were being corrected. But the most important feature of this excercise was that of linking Aadhaar with Voder ID card (now called EPIC). Why Aadhaar Ceeding Stopped The story goes that one of the State CEO (Chief Electoral Officer) who are actually encharge of the Electoral Voter Data introduced the form for Aadhaar ceeding by making it compulsory. A few Privacy concious citizen filed a Supreme court case. Sensing a big fiasco, Election Commission of India gave assurance to the Supreme Court that they will stop the ceeding and will never link Aadhaar with Voter Data. This affidavit completely stopped the process of Aadhaar ceeding abruptly and the NERP process which had collected so many database got waste. The Election Commission still have those Aadhaar data, but as they burned their bridges they just dumped this data. Recent Event with ECI Recenlty it was heard that Election Commission has revived the attempt by filing a revised petition to Supreme Court that now they would like to use the Aadhaar data for electoral purification purely on vlountariy basis. But as it appear, neither Election Commission nor spirited citizens are interested in any linkages between the two. What is the danger of linking Aadhaar with Voter ID card But there is a danger too. As the social media is abuzz with falcification and victimisation of EVM, so will a new ghost story will appear that now the Government has the control of the electoral database and they can manipulate the electoral data by linking it will Aadhaar. One thought is that ECI should have it's own biometric system for deduplication integrated with their IT system especially as ECI has integrated all State applications now for EPIC data management. This new initiative is through NVSP.in and ERONET application developed by CDAC Pune.

Lodged a complaint with pgportal.No response Customer Care of Home Branch and Acquiring Branch tried to dodge me stating that I transaction number was wrong etc. Immediately,filed RTI seeking copy of failed transactions and ATM video recordings from the ATM branch as per Prasad Sir's advice. Got my amount reversed within a day.I've shared the RTI format in the forum too Thank You RTI India forum

    One of our most renowned number of the Forum, Hon. Harinder Dhingra, of Haryana has made hundreds of RTI Applications and the most successful activist in the country. He never stops just by filing applications, appeals and getting a decision, he always brings it a point to reach a logical ending till the issue is finally settled. There is no department which he has not touched. Schools, Urban Development authority, Courts, Hospitals he has almost covered all departments and brought several others within ambit of RTI Act, and many times attend hearings personally both at SIC & CIC. To my knowledge he has saved crores of rupees for the State Government and helped several economically backward communities in getting admissions to premier institutions, and free treatment. Social Service is one of the activity, and under RTI is also one among such activity, and so far no person was given PADMASRI presidential award under RTI segment. When asked, as a senior citizen how the state government has recognised his services through awards or rewards for his contribution, this is the response given by him. Those who still think RTI is a cake walk and easy way to get public recognition need to share his experience. About Award from Govt., Yes I did get one in the shape of FIR lodged against me bearing number 0369 in Sadar Police Station under Section 184 & 506 of IPC on 14th June 2017 by Haryana Urban Development Authority (HUDA) for threatening a office peon & outsourced employee working as Data Operator. Got Anticipatory Bail from Hon'ble Punjab & Haryana High Court and this is how, the RTI Activists, are treated in this part of Country. I am continuing my struggle for transparent & Corruption free Society unmindful of tricks played by vested interests. It is not easy to become a Karira or Harinder Dhingra without perseverance and sacrifices. Hon CJ Karira prepares army of activists through training in RTI, whereas Hon.Harinder dhingra is one man army and fights himself like a soldier. True, a soldier do gets wounded but never stops to carry forward the struggle. Let us all wish this senior citizen more success.

    These types of "suggestions" were given several times in several decisions and even ICs bat for such FAAs and assume their practical difficulties and even justify FAAs not permitting personal hearing in those decisions. IC can not take any action against FAA for not permitting personal hearing. Almost all FAAs are aware that when requested FAA must provide hearing opportunity and still they are not interested, IC can not do anything except making such suggestions in their decisions regularly. Some FAA's even decide that "Hearing appellant is not necessary" in this case.
