    The PIO is quoting very old Judgment. It was held in CIC decisions that if the information is available on record in material form it has to be provided, as RTI Act never stipulated any form of seeking information. For example: Who is Prime Minister of india is interrogative form Please provide the name of the Prime Minister of India is a simple sentence. If PIO has in his records material form naming such PM, he can not reject the information on grounds that it is interrogative. PIO can only deny information as per exemptions stated in Sec.8 or Sec.9 of RTI Act. Either you can file simple RTI to same PIO or go for first appeal so that you can educate Public Authority PF who is not still knowing fundamentals even after 14 years after RTI came into force . Simple form: 1.Please inform the reasons for delay in transfer of PF from.................to................. 2.Please inform time frame fixed under citizen charter for making such transfers. 3.Inform the name of the employee, and his supervisor, designations, mobile numbers and full address that are purposefully delaying transfer and neglecting their duties.

    FAA's obligation is to direct his subordinate Public Information Officer suitably to follow such stipulations in RTI Act, if he finds from first appellant has stated any grounds of violation. Information should always be from Public Information officer. You can ask a friend or relative from different station to file RTI Application seeking information as follows: Information solicited: 1.Please provide the copy of office notes/directions that state the reasons for putting on hold the recruitment of Deputy Managers, Assistant Managers (desk top). 2.Please inform whether there is an obligation on public authority to inform developments to the aspiring candidates, without giving scope for each candidate filing individual RTI Applications. 3.Please provide the link if the matter is put on website about suspending such recruitment. 4.Inform further plan of action for recruitment in future if available on record if any.

    If a candidate seeks information under the provisions of the Right to Information Act, then payment has to be sought under the RTI Rules. The question before the Supreme Court was which Guidelines/Rules will govern the prescription of fee for copies of answer sheets and their inspection. The Court held that while the ICSI is governed by the Companies Secretaries Act, 1980 and the Examination Committee formed under the statute prescribes a certain fee, the RTI Rules also lay down a fee structure for procurement of answer sheets. The Court held, “In our opinion, the existence of these two avenues is not mutually exclusive and it is up to the candidate to choose either of the routes. Thus, if a candidate seeks information under the provisions of the Right to Information, then payment has to be sought under the Rules therein, however, if the information is sought under the Guidelines of the appellant, then the appellant is at liberty to charge the candidates as per its guidelines.” The decision was rendered by a Bench of Justices NV Ramana and S Abdul Nazeer, which made it clear that if there are other avenues to procure answer sheets, the applicant can choose which one to route her request through. The RTI Rules entitle a student to seek inspection and certified copies of their answer scripts. When this right is exercised, Rule 4 will govern the levy of the required charges. This Rule stipulates a fee of Rs. 2 for each page of the answer script. For inspection, no fee is prescribed for the first hour. For every subsequent hour of inspection, the fee is Rs. 5 per hour. The order came in an appeal filed by the Institute of Companies Secretaries of India (ICSI) against a decision of a Division Bench of the Delhi High Court. The respondent, Advocate Paras Jain, had sought from ICSI certified copies of answer sheets and their inspection under RTI. He was charged a fee for the same as per Guideline No. 3 notified by the Statutory Council of the ICSI. As per the ICSI Guidelines, the fee for the supply of certified copies was Rs. 500 per answer sheet, and the charge for inspection was Rs. 450 per answer book.

    Wait for say approximately 35 days from the date of filing of the RTI application and if you do not receive any response from the PIO, then file a first appeal with the concerned First Appellate Authority under section 19(1) of the RTI Act.

    This forum is dedicated community forum for guidance in seeking information from Public authorities under RTI Act. JIO being a private entity is beyond ambit of RTI Act. Make a registered notice to customer care , under copy to TRAI... Wait for a month and then file a complaint before District Consumer forum for deficiency of service claiming refund and compensation for harassment. You need not spend more than Rs.200/- for this complaint if you appear as party in person.

    Proper way is first to file RTI Application and seeking such copy of affidavits, and then file RTI Applications to the Supdt of Police enclosing the copy of the affidavit, seeking present status of the cases.

    Attendance to second appeal hearing by Appellant is not mandatory. However, Information Commission must clearly give atleast one week notice. Preserve the envelope and represent to IC for rehearing of the case immediately before orders are made and communicated. First send e mail and then follow it up with hard copy by Regd If you are lucky you may get another opportunity of hearing. Even if appellant is not present, IC has to deliver orders on facts appearing in the appeal. If orders are pronounced and communicated, you have no other remedy than approaching HC for justice.

    When PIO says that records are destroyed, one can not force PIO. I have not heard the term'frozen'. If you want to proceed further, ask FAA to direct SPIO to provide that column/entry in the destruction of records that state the destruction, and also the copy of extract manual that states of retention period. Please inform your specific query to PIO for clarity.

    There might be a mistake in your understanding. PWD is different and a separate state Government dept., Corporation is the local government body. However, when you are stating with confidence that both PIOs have one FAA, Public authority might have been only one. The PIO has to severe that information you have solicited and transfer that part of query only to second PIO of another public authority. There is a time limit of 5 days within which the transfer has to be effected. There is violation. As a citizen, just focus on information, always try to get from first two stages. You can wait for 35 days from date of your posting RTI Application and then file first appeal must be on grounds of deemed denial, and also late transfer of RTI Application. Wait for 35 days for that point transferred to second PIO and continue First appeal in that process depending on progress.

    I can see that SC judgement of 2009 (CIVIL APPEAL No.22 OF 2009) held that service record book between employer and employee is a private matter but CIC decisions CIC/AD/A/2012/00287 dated 13.05.2013 and CIC/AD/A/2012/00287 dated 03.02.2011 have ordered for service record book of a government employee sbe given. What is the present scenario in this case? I have sought the service record book of a police officer and I am filing second appeal Is there any other judgements or anything else that I need to know ?

    Dear Member a. This forum is for discussing issues connected with RTI only. b.First send a written Complaint to the local Municipal Corporation (NDMC or MCD). It is better if you involve more residents and send many complaints, one after the other.If there is no response from the authorities, then you can use RTI to follow up on the Complaint. Please refer post # 2 (just above your post) for details. regards Demerged post from another thread and merged here.
