  1. During this covid pendamic I moved application under life n liberty clause in a medical college regarding some. Important machine and other I got the same in 3 4 days. All can try.
  2. Absolutely true. They have made the Act a toothless tiger. Justice delayed is justice denied. In India, the officials are having attitude problems first and they do not like if some one questions their actions. When the hearing takes place after 2 years+, when information is important, and when the ICs are retired bureaucrats and wish to complete the tenure without any controversy, the result is partisan attitude and lenient view against PIOs. The Act is at present running on ventilator and there is no question of survival if the same situation continues. Applicants, PIOs, FAAs, ICs and
  3. File fresh RTI Application seeking inspection and specify those documents basing on which false information was provided according to you. Prepare minutes, handover the copy of such minutes after inspection stating that PIO has not produced the records for inspection basing on which he has provided information as per his letter dt........ File a complaint to IC.

  4. This was as per SC , CIC and Govt directions. Infact most of the information has to be disclosed voluntarily in their websites, as the follow up is very good and the system is streamlined with very efficient monitoring hourly basis.

  5. There are more interesting to learn out of the decision. The citizen/applicant may not be knowing the exact custodian of the information and made application to two Public Information officers. It appears from the queriest reply that because application was not made to single PIO, IC dismissed the appeal.

  6. According to you the PIO has filed a false affidavit. What was the occasion by which the PIO has filed an affidavit? Did the Information Commission pass an Order whereby the PIO was asked to file an affidavit? Can you provide the facts of case in more detail, so that the forum can guide you appropriately?

  8. Being an RTI Activist, you are supposed to know fundamentals. A.Your first query in this forum was on receipt of the second appeal by CIC. You were asked to provide duplicate set as the first set was purportedly missed/wrongly filed during shifting of CIC and CIC has admitted the mistake. You ought to have submitted the set with a request to give PRIORITY IN HEARING as your second appeal was missing after entry in their records. You have not stated whether you have made such request. If not immediately address a separate letter stating the following facts. 1.The second appeal dt.

  9. Though Appellant has submitted second appeal, it appears that he has not enclosed service proof of Application, first appeal, second appeal copy. . The decision is that application was not received from appellant. Without any doubt the SIC decision is not proper. When PIO has provided incorrect and deliberately false information that he has not received application, the only option left to PIO and FAA is stating that they have not received application with such fee and considering SIC notice, considering the application either calling applicant for application enabling the SPIO providing

  10. To me it appears that denial is justified, as such information was furnished by Intelligence and security organizations belonging to second Schedule to Home dept., and not related to corruption/Human rights violation, using such exemptions under Sec.8 (1) is not necessary by CPIO. You may continue your efforts if you wanted to learn more RTI.

  11. File a complaint u/s. 18 with the SCIC. Grounds of complaint: 1. The PIO has not complied with the directions of the SCIC to file an affidavit despite a lapse of ______ days after the SCIC's Order Dated: _________. The complainant therefore urges the Hon'ble Commission to exercise its powers u/s. 18(3) of the RTI Act read with Section 27 to 32 of the Civil Procedure Code, 1908 and thereby institute an inquiry with due regard to its powers as are vested in a civil court while trying a suit under the Code of Civil Procedure, 1908.

Under RTI Act, a citizen has a right to seek that information that is available in the form of a material with Public authority, the disclosure which is not exempted RTI from any Public authority.

  13. There is no specific period, unless the notice stipulates a period from 30 days to 90 days. In such cases, contractors/builders play delay tactics and approach court for injunction orders against implementation. Get a certified copy of such notices, and seek information from BMC B&F dept as follows: 1.Please provide me certified copies of notices issued to the unauthorized contractors. 2.Please inform the stipulated period if any for proceeding to demolition unauthorized construction after issuing notice, and in absence of response from them, with certified copy of such ru

    • 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.
