    A citizen should seek information available in material form as record from that authority with whom that record is available. You know where the panchnama is available as record. You have to file RTI Application in hard copy mode as per laid down rules and regulations of your state to that Public Information Officer, in whose office Panchanam is available and you will certainly get the same under RTI. It appears that you have filed on line RTI application to Central Government RTI portal and it is not to be used for seeking information from state government departments .

    One of our members tried to expose a fraud in Syndicate Bank , Nellore , AP and sought guidance in the forum in several queries. Thereafter never visited the forum. It was learnt from today's news paper that finally he could establish fraud prima facie and CBI has commenced investigation. The member should have atleast posted success story though he may not acknowledge support.

    Under the provisions of the RTI Act, a FAA does not have the power to impose a penalty on a PIO. The power to impose a penalty is available only to an Information Commission. Please refer to section 20 of the RTI Act.

    File a first appeal on the following ground: Grounds of First Appeal: 1. As per section 4(1)(b)(x) a public authority is supposed to suo-motu publish the following information: (x) the monthly remuneration received by each of its officers and employees, including the system of compensation as provided in its regulations; Thus, the PIO has disposed of my RTI application in violation of the provision of section 4(1)(b)(x). By the way, because of judgment of the Hon'ble Supreme Court in Girish Ramchandra Deshpande's case most the information that you have sought may be denied u/s. 8(1)(j) i.e. personal information ground. Nevertheless, you can cite section 4(1)(b)(x) and try and get some of this information.

    RTI is mainly about seeking certified photocopies of the documents. Just frame queries such that it points towards documents. For instance, please provide me a certified photocopy of the documents wherein has been noted specific details of liabilities of my project mentioned in the NDC form.

    After filing RTI Application through speed post or Registered post, after one week applicant should search in Indiapost website delivery status of the envelope by typing the number given to the envelope, note the delivery date, and get a screen print and enclose it to his office of RTI Application. The normal procedure is for going to First Appeal if information is not received from PIO within 35 days from date of posting the envelope. Then in First appeal one has to enclose copy of RTI Application and also the screen print showing delivery status and state in Grounds for first appeal as "Deemed denial' of information. If PIO says that he has not received, blame the luck and provide him a copy as immediately as possible with fees of Rs.10/- once again, as there is no use of arguing and proving in such cases.

    There is no such specific exemption and it is not a confidential record. File RTI Application , let PIO deny information stating such clause, then you can seek guidance while filing first appeal. At the stage of application, do not bother about the actions of PIO, just seek information, and let PIO deny such information with such section/sub section and justification for using that section, then one can go for first appeal (General guidance) General diary is not exempted and it is a public record.

    We in India have adopted a federal form of government, with a Union Government at the Center and then State Governments for each State. RTI Act is the same for both the Union Governments and the State Governments, however, the RTI Rules as well as Public Authorities are different for them. For Central Govt Public Authorities the Central Govt. Rules and its Online Portal will be applicable, however, for each of the State Govt's their respective RTI Rules and Online Portals if any will be applicable. Kindly refer to your particular State Govt. 'RTI Rules' and 'Online Portal if any' for the same.

    Go for second appeal on same grounds as in First Appeal. Frauds in Public institutions are not in larger public interest and there can never be exemptions under RTI or any other act. Even the statutory obligation of maintaining secrecy of customer account is having exemptions if their own interest is involved.

    Definitely the frauds are issues that involved larger public interest and those frauds after investigation must be disclosed to public. Please upload exact query and reason for precise guidance. FIle RTI Application to CPIO, DBOD, RBI, Mumbai seeking information as follows: 1.Please provide any guideline or directive issued to commercial banks against disclosing denial of information under RTI on information frauds investigated by banks and reported to RBI. 2.Please provide any decision of CIC on disclosure of information on such frauds. 3.Please provide controlling authority for receiving fraud investigation reports of RRB.

    1.A citizen has to file RTI Application to that authority, and in case of no response or if it is intimated that there is no PIO, citizen can make complaint to Information Commission (sec.18) 2.Sec. 8 (3) is the most abused section and even those PIOs who were trained in reputed institutions and attended workshops still use this sub section to deny information. This SS facilitates for disclosure of those information that was not within ambit of RTI like cabinet papers etc. Example: Netaji case, Various decisions during Emergency etc. If the information is available in physical form in material as record with public authority, it must be provided. For every record, depending on such importance, records has to be segregated and preserved for some time and some records permanently. For example the answer sheets are preserved only for 3 months from date of announcement of result. So, if some one asks after 6 months, as the records are destroyed, there is no obligation to PIO to provide the copy of the information. Some appellants even argued that because of this section, every authority must preserve the records for 20 years !!!!!!! 3.In case PIO fails to provide information within 30 days from date of receipt of such information, applicant should go for first appeal to higher authority in the same organization designated as First Appellate Authority stating the Grounds for appeal as 'Deemed denial". If PIO fails to respond and remains silent (neither providing information nor denying with such exemption section and justification) for 30 days from date of receipt it is treated as deemed denial. Please go through CBSE Vs.Aditya Bandhopadhya, 2011 SCC (497) as that decision is most authentic on exemptions and obligations of PIO and relevant to your query.

    In that case, RTI is not helpful, it is only through writ mandamus you can demand for your rights. (Even in Case of world famous Balaji Temple at Tirumala, though the Chairman and commissioners (IAS) are government authorities even after SIC declared them as public authorities there was no such judgment from AP High Court) For bring any such organisations, the first thing one has to establish is that without government assistance, the organization cease to exist. For this to file complaint you require Balance sheet or Income and expenditure statement for last three years and disclose as to what is contribution and extent of contribution from Govt. to establish substantial contribution. Without having such balance sheets and role of govt., it is not possible to frame any complaint.

    Make a complaint to State Information Commission, establish that temple as Public authority stating all such requisites and major contributions by Government. Get that appeal decision and study before once again going to IC.

    This was your post: " I recently filed an RTI asking for last five years copy of all self signed no liability certificate submitted by retired and tenure completed staffs, tenure completed sanctioned projects and waiting for the reply." Please come back with such response so that you can file meaningful first appeal. Be prepared that no one cares for RTI and you have to ultimately approach for Information Commission only. Hence abide by time frame and if there is no response from PIO within 35 days from date of filing your RTI, immediately go for first appeal without wasting time. One can seek information from Public Information officer, and he has to direct or take assistance from FAO. Be brief and post exactly what you require from Public Authority and how you wish to use that information for logical conclusion.

    "This route" words used by you presumed as RTI. Your impression may be correct or may not be correct as every thing depends on perseverance. Every route is directed to one destination. RTI is a road/journey to destination and never a destination..
