1 pointPlease read Section 10 which provides for sever-ability:
1 pointIt should be sought under PRAYERS. THE GROUNDS FOR APPEAL SHOULD ALWAYS BE VIOLATIONS BY PIO IN NOT PROVIDING INFORMATION OR PROVIDING INCORRECT AND MISLEADING INFORMATION OR DENYING INFORMATION WITHOUT JUSTIFICATION.
1 pointTransparency and accountability involving larger public interest are the objectives of RTI Act. Once the application is filed before public authority, it is not a confidential document, but a public document and must be made available for scrutiny by citizen, as this is not personal information. By providing the copy of the application based on which a compassionate appointment was preferred over others the extent of deviations in actions of authority can be determined by the citizen. Any information which PIO thinks is personal information that may amount to invasion of privacy (AADHAR, MOBILE No etc) can be severed from application. PIO can provide that information by covering that personal information by covering with white liquid or through colouring it black etc., The simple guidance for PIO is that all information available in material form as a public record if not exempted under Sec.8 (1) must be provided. If PIO wishes to deny information, he is supposed to mention such clause and with justification for denial on such clause of exemption. Applications are not confidential documents or having a personal angle. The status of living or dead makes no difference in providing a public record in custody of the authority. (Honestly there are some clouds in giving such appointment either to father or daughter as father's caste is ST and daughter's caste is BC, one must have provided a fake certificate and it is certainly the father that must have provided such certificate. However once a bonafide certificate was submitted by applicant, unless that certificate is cancelled by appropriate orders, it amounts to a bonafide document. Compassionate appointment may be different and depends on practice and if a certain shop is reserved under ST Category, even appointing a BC in that category may amount to violation irrespective of relationship.)
1 pointFocus only on information. If you feel that information is urgent and important, do avail every opportunity thrown to you without further arguments. If you wanted to go for appeal go for first appeal stating the following grounds. First Appeal dt........................under RTI Act Before: Against: Brief facts: Appellant solicited information in the form of a letter for queries No.............and PIO instead of providing information vide his letter dt.............directed appellant for inspection. Grounds for Appeal: As per Sec. 7 (9) "information shall ordinarily be provided in the form in which it is sought unless it would disproportionately. divert the resources of public authority or would be detrimental to the safety of preservation of the record.". The same was reiterated in several CIC decisions.. As the information was not provided in the form it is requested, and PIO has chosen his own form and directed appellant to come for inspection, without caring for the convenience of appellant, the response of PIO is not proper and not satisfactory. PRAYER: Appellant prays for directions to PIO to provide that information as solicited in application. Appellant
1 pointYou are an expert, if you have not received proper response within 48 hours from CPIO, go for first appeal, and then to CIC under life or liberty clause. Make a written complaint to Central Ministry of Shipping and Home dept as grievance in their on line portal.
1 pointFocus on main issue. Rectify the deficiencies if any and seek pin pointed information that is available on record in the form of a material. In case of pensions, it amounts to life or liberty clause and both PIO and FAA must dispose the applications within 48 hours. It may be true that PIO has provided incorrect, false or misleading information on receipt of your application and mails. Just by pointing out the mistakes and going for second appeal at this age is not correct step. Focus on your own issue, forget deviations if any by PIO and FAA as ICs do not care much for those violations as it is usual practice of PIOs to suppress from material facts to save their skin. Ignoring their deviations, if you wish to go for second appeal make it much simple and submit duly tabulated annexure in following format with your second appeal. _________________________________________________________________________________________________ Query No.............Information solicited......................Provided by PIO.............Reasons for not finding response satisfactory __1__________________2______________________________3______________________________4________________ 1 2 thereon. If you want specific clarification in this forum for more guidance on your pension issue, before going to appeal post the same in above format for proper guidance by members.
1 pointIn Revenue Department all Certificates issued are public documents and it can't be denied on any ground. The question of 3rd party opinion, using Section 11 for taking consent does not at all arise.
1 pointGo for first appeal that in larger public interest those public records connected to welfare measures must be given to prevent abuse of the welfare measures going to undeserving applicants. Certainly you will get a favourable decision finally.
1 pointAs I understand 1)Your dad has retired from service . 2.Before three days to retire one person asked about funds 3.The applicant has not received information. 4.Should your father reply RTI Application. When your father has retired from services, and entrusted his responsibilities to incoming designated official, your father is no more responsible, as the other designated official that has taken your father's place must reply within 27 days.
