  2. Go through Sec.19 of RTI Act and continue further process of first and second appeal as expeditiously as possible remembering time frame. Wait for Information commissions' orders and if not satisfied go for Writ against University. Contact a local advocate and issue a Notice under CP Act claiming huge damages for not providing you the transcript if they have collected such fees. You can also explore possibility of filing writ mandamus in High Court after consulting your advocate.

  3. During First Appeal Hearing, you can not raise any fresh grounds - Adhere to the Grounds submitted in the First Appeal and establish larger public interest as to how the Temple in the name of lottery has collected such amounts from public. Conducting a lottery is a commercial activity and not connected with devotional aspect.

The following was the guidance and no advice was given to file grievance in consumer affairs pgrms portal. (as temple management may not be well versed, they my blur out is the hope) "You can also explore possibility of issuing notice under CP Act to temple and file a complaint against temple management for deficiency of service is not providing the valid information."

  7. Simple request for prioratizing hearing is not a crime. You can make such a request but it must be supported by genuine reason and they must feel such urgency and convinced of appellant's such necessity. Senior citizens, citizens with other abilities appeals require such advancement as per their rules. In some cases, appellants approached HC also for such advancement of dates explaining the need. There is no head at CIC and some other IC positions are vacant. There may be several appeals for which hearing is required urgently, when the information is having evidential value in on g

  10. There was no CIC decision yet. Second Appeal was registered once and the second time as issue is one and the same, the second appeal was rejected. This issue was posted and correctly interpreted by our moderator above. Unless the second appeal orders are received one can not approach to HC. The chances of getting such information is bleak as the information is on financial affairs of spouse which amounts to personal information and the earlier rulings are that it should be secured from the process of court itself.

Grounds for Appeal: PIO has provided incomplete, incorrect information, as the reply of the employee on such charges and decision of disciplinary authority discussing the charges vis a vis explanation are fundamentals in disciplinary proceeding. If the documents are not available, the PIO is supposed to severe that part of application and endorse to the concerned authority with whom such documents are available.

If a post is more than 2 or 3 replies/queries, due to time constraint, members may not care to read. You can never expect anything positive from CVC and always have Plan B, C , D and thereon.

  14. Please understand the operation of CVC. First there is a screening at CVC level and committee finds out whether there is a prima facie evidence. Then as CVC is just a post office and it transfers the complaint to Vigilance dept., of that organisation and finally the complaint goes to the very person against whom the complaint was made. CVC gives time of 90 days and after another two or three reminders, that organisation may send such report disagreeing and certifying that there is no vigilance angle in the complaint and make some more allegations attributing motives to complainant/ Th

  16. The grounds for appeal duly numbered as i to vi and prayer was incorporated in the earlier reply. In CP Act, there are two important issues involved. 1.You have to pay some kind of fee, consideration for availing a service/purchase a product. and must have promised or paid that consideration to opposite party. 2.The opposite party after receiving such consideration must have failed to perform his part of obligation that amounts to either negligence or deficiency of service and thus the complainant was deprived of the service assured by OP. 3.Then one has to approach to Dist

  17. 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

  18. How to Stop Corruption? Corruption is one of the most disruptive problems faced by the world and it needs to stop without further damage to the humanity so as to have a better future for the coming generation.

In the words of Transparency International, “Corruption is one of the greatest challenges of the contemporary world.

  19. Of late defiance of orders of Information Commissioners has become rampant. The only remedy with the information seeker is to lodge a complaint with Chief Information Commissioner, who routinely issues another order for compliance that too after a delay ranging from 6 to 36 months depending upon efficiency and pendency of CIC/SIC. Commissions hardly invoke powers of Civil Court vested in it u/s 18.3 to ensure speedy compliance with its own orders. Hence I suggest that if after two months of filing complaint of non-compliance [with copy to PIO, FAA, and Head of public authority], as sugges

    • 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.
