    PGRMS (pgportal) is exclusively for Central Government and it's undertakings alone. If there is such PGR mechanism (Citizen charter) enacted in states, one can file that in State Govt. on line portal. If not sending the same once again by Registered post, and then filing RTI Application seeking information on action taken on your grievance can be made as follow up action. Even CPGRMS it is just ornamental now, as the Bill is gathering dust since many years in dungeons of Parliament. You can now file RTI Application to that Public authority on the basis of such communication received with such number if any . Information Solicited: 1.Please provide copies of Office notes, day to day action taken and present status of Grievance No..............filed through PGRMS portal in the name of...........................on.....................

    I you want to know, whether a permission has been granted for an already installed lift, then you will need to file a RTI application with the Public Information Officer of the Building Proposal Department of the Municipality. For Example: To, The Public Information Officer, Asst. Engineer, Building Proposal Department, XX Ward, Address of XX Ward.

    There is no bar in seeking such information. Only after receiving the reply from PIO one can decide whether record is retained as per retention schedule or not. Whether the records are available in material form either in front office or back office or records room or Central records is immaterial. Bank may charge such amounts as prescribed under their rules but if it is not destroyed and entry is not made in such destruction register evidencing of such destruction..record must be provided both under RTI and CP Act. (I remember well having provided guidance earlier on similar issue)

    File a complaint in on line grievance portal of AICTE. Wait for their reply. After one month seek information in a different style and ask number of complaints received against FPOP. There are hundreds of such institutions that can provide such certificates on receiving fees of Rs.500/- Let the Student / buyer take his own precautions, as these are new in India.

    Public Information officer has to collect such RTI fees prescribed for Copying under their Rules and regulations and not market rates. (Searching, spending man hours for providing copies is considered each copy may even cost more than Rs.50/- and public authorities can not earn through such copying amount) Rs.2/- is most reasonable for a copy. Information and utility of those documents is the focus and not petty amount of Rs.2/- per copy. It is the responsibility of PIO to send such calculation by way of intimation to Applicant while responding. Applicant can seek such clarification either in person or over phone or by writing simple letter. Information should always be the focus and not other ego issues. To avoid confusion, applicant can seek inspection of the record, select those documents required and can get those copies selected by him and pay copying charges per each copy Rs.2/- Please go through inspection blog in our website before seeking inspection and also go through RTI rules and regulations of Public authority PIO to know the fixed charges for copying under RTI.

    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

    A third party audit under the Central Information Commission is the need of the hour, as RTI statistics submitted by PSBs do not prove the “constraint theory” identified by the Nayak Committee. This committee identified the application of The Right to Information Act, 2005 to all PSBs as a “major constraint” affecting their governance amongst others. No statistics or anecdotal information was, however, furnished in support of this finding. However, as the CHRI report clearly shows citing CIC figures, there is no evidence of any undue burden on PSBs as the average load factor on each branch of a PSB was less than two RTI applications a year. There is, therefore, need for the CIC to urgently launch a third party audit of banks receiving the most number of RTI applications as well as those reporting a very high proportion of rejections in order to make an assessment of the manner in which banks are disposing RTI applications. In the matter of Reserve Bank of India vs Jayantilal N Mistry and related cases, the Supreme Court had directed the RBI to disclose information about NPAs to RTI applicants. Whether the court’s directives are being complied with or not can be ascertained only by examining the RTI applications and the responses of each bank. So a third party audit under the aegis of the CIC is the need of the hour. Link: https://thewire.in/banking/public-sector-banks-are-rejecting-more-rtis-than-ever-before For me it appears funny..as it is not lakhs of non performing assets that are bothering the PSB but less than two applications per branch is bothering PSB as a "major constraint'. If only Banks upload the appraisal after sanction in their websites, then these lakhs of NPAs may not be eating into depositor's money. They want money from depositors, but they do not wish to be accountable for any one. When PSBs have several types of regular audit like Surprise, regular, concurrent, statutory audit,-- now do they require external audit by CIC, when providing information is also a statutory obligation ? (It is a different matter that all those rituals can not arrest Non performing advances growth) PSBs want facials with public money ?

    If an organization is not a public authority there is not much you can do with the help of RTI. However through the Registrar you can access only those documents which are available or need to be filed with the Registrar. If you have filed RTI directly with society then there is no first appeal process but if you have filed RTI with Registrar then find out who is the First Appellate Authority of that office. Standard first appeal format can be used.

    The provision of supplying the information will apply if the liberty of a person is threatened, if she is going to, or is already incarcerated and the disclosure of the information may alter that situation. If the disclosure of the information would obviate the danger, then it may be considered under the proviso of Section 7(1). The imminent danger has to be demonstrably real.

    Do not expect RTI Act is remedy for your immediate actions. File contempt petition before HC and get suitable orders.

    Just go to a post office that issued IPO and ask the validity period or search in google about validity period of IPO or make a call to SBI and inquire with them...The validity period of postal order is two years from date of issue, which can be revalidated by pasting postal stamp at appropriate place for further period of two years. Avoid arguments with idiots and immediately send fresh IPO quoting validity period of postal order, the exact date on your IPO with such number reference circular to PIO. Even without RTI fee, they can provide information. Believe me that it can not stop First Appeal proceedings as PIO has not stated such reason in response to your application in writing.

    Practically speaking, you can wait for the second PIO to respond to your RTI Request. Technically / Legally speaking section 6(3) cannot be invoked for an inter-departmental transfer of a RTI application, but it can only be invoked where the requested information is available with another Public Authority. For example: Transfer of a RTI application from Municipality to say Police. But it cannot be invoked for transfer of a RTI application from one department of Municipality to another department of Municipality, it being one and the same public authority, but in that case the correct provisions to be invoked are section 5(4) read with section 5(5).
