  1. RTI is not suitable to your problem. The collecting banker has the responsibility of presenting the cheque as immediately as possible to the paying banker and credit the proceeds after receiving such amounts. In case of local cheques the credit has to be given within 48 working hours and in case of outstation within maximum 7 days. If there is a delay of 15 days there is deficiency of service and you are a consumer. So file a complaint to bank in which you have presented the cheque on line immediately informing facts. EX: This is to bring to your kind attention that I have

  2. Remember, RTI is not a complaint or grievance redressal way. An Indian citizen can as a right can seek information from public authorities if that information is available in material form as public record and not exempted under RTI Act. In your case you can file RTI Application and seek laid down norms/orders/guidelines and free to use that document for remedy through HC (Writ mandamus) To my knowledge transport is treated as Public Utility and essential service and lockdown rules may not apply to certain employees performing such duties for COVID19.

  3. The first question is as to whether the Lottery is having such permissions/approvals/sanctions etc. Now that they have identified public authority, as the process has already started, wait for their response. Depending on their response you can go for first appeal if possible. It is still doubtful whether endowments/temples are Public authority or not. You ought to have asked whether the temple is having such permissions to conduct such lotteries and entire set of documents submitted by them temple authorities while seeking permission if any for conducting such lottery and

  4. You are welcome as members can get immense benefit out of your services, as you are a faculty in reputed institution teaching on RTI. Unfortunately experts like Mr.CJ Karira, Ms Raveena Oberoi are not visiting the site for more than a year and left a legacy to the forum. Be assured that many experts pay regular visits (Including law makers/ICs) to the Forum and your posts may catch their attention. You can also write blogs if the contents are large in volume.

  5. Do not be more concerned about the time frame during the present COVID19 uncertainity. Think yourself fortunate if you get the information. You may continue First appeal process after waiting for 35 days from receipt of your application by SPIO. You have informed that your application was received on 25th July, and agitated on 28th July,2020. Please wait upto 31st Aug,2020 and file first appeal on deemed denial of information, if you fail to get information from SPIO.

  6. Also you may apply under the provisions of the Indian Registration Act and the Rules made thereunder which would be much faster. But you need to have all details of the document particularly the registration number.

  7. I strongly condemn this attack. Such attacks have occurred in the past as well, and there is no way to ensure that it won't happen again with someone else. I feel its time India thinks on the following lines. 1. Create separate ministry of RTI in Central & all State Govts. 2. Ministry to be managed by a group of Public Body, not by any one Elected Representative. 3. Create a Spl Dept of RTI in office of every Public Authority. 4. This Dept be kept beyond Jurisdiction of concerned Public Authority 2 avoid bias. 5. Atta

    • WHAT AFTER DECISION BY CENTRAL/STATE INFORMATION COMMISSIONER

      There are a 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 the dead end. There is a common feeling that no appeal lies against the decision of State Information Commissioner. Let us examine it.

    • 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.

    • There can be no faith in government if our highest offices are excused from scrutiny - they should be setting the example of transparency.
