  1. Regarding small Udyog

    This forum is dedicated for guiding citizens in seeking information from Public Authorities under RTI Act. Your issue is simple and you can just register the unit either on line or in person and a certificate has to be provided within 24 hours on on spot. You can get several advantages like concession in Electric Tariff, dedicated lines, recommendation for bank loan with very very nominal interest, subsidy and marketing facilities. District Industries center is the implementing agency and they have coordinators to help you in each and every step. When there is a laid down procedure for promoting SSI, always use such Govt. scheme.
  2. PIO refused to accept RTI application

    We have been advising to avoid that type of offensive language and we do not have property disputes with PIOs. Send that application by local speed post and specifically write on top with Red Ink, submitted through post as PIO has on..............at............refused to accept the application when submitted in person without assigning any reason, and stated that a citizen can not question actions / duties / performance of public servants in democracy. One has to remember the Nursery Rhyme 'Pussy Cat..Pussy Cat where have you been" Pussy cat went to look at the queen but frightened a little mouse under her chair. Our focus is on information not conflicts with officials. Avoid personal visits and using such threatening or offending language. Go for further two appeals. Attitudes and understandings of the officials differ and remember that with RTI we can never threaten any body, but can irritate them. Focus on information. Ignore these trivial altercations and learn a lesson not to visit any body, and to seek that information that is really helpful to you, and that can bring a logical end with that information.
  3. RTI Complaint format before CIC

    They serve for two different purposes. Sec.18.Infact complaints should be given priority, as a mere show cause notice (Ritual uniform format) is enough and the things to be decided are whether complete, relevant and correct information was provided or not, but IC can never order for providing of information as per SC Judgment. Complainant can only pray for penalties and disciplinary action against PIO, which ICs rarely resort to, as it is left to their discretion and it is in between PIO and IC without interference from complainant. Sec.19. Coming to second appeal, the focus on information, and hearing may take place much late, and appellant can as usual seek all remedies under RTI Act I always go for second appeal only, as information is focus, and IC rarely imposes penalty. I avoid complaints, but experts in the forum say that it serve two different purposes and both complaint and second appeal can be combined in one format.
  4. No decision recd. from FAA

    That is duty and statutory obligation of FAA to provide speaking order on Grounds of First Appeal. The final remedy is immediately going for second appeal. Please search in website of that Information Commission for laid down procedure on sending second appeal. 1)There is no implication and inference Just quote Grounds of First appeal and in the next para graph state that first appeal was filed on ............and enclose copy of postal receipt (Service proof) and state that FAA remained silent to prayers and not responded. 2)It is duty and statutory obligation of FAA to give opportunity of personal hearing and deliver a speaking order. But unfortunately, RTI Act is silent on action against FAA, and as on date, IC can not take any action against FAA. If you have time and money file another RTI Application to FAA office and seek information as follows. Subject on information sought: FAA not performing his duty and statutory obligations and filing first appeals: EX: First appeal dt...filed by ........................ Information solicited: 1)Please provide any copy of stipulations / directives / orders that state that FAA can remain silent and need not deliver speaking orders on First Appeal within statutory stipulated period. 2)Please provide reasons for not delivering FAA orders though it is FAA's duty and statutory obligation. 3.Please provide total number of cases lodged by FAA for the last 3 financial years without delivering speaking orders. 4.Please provide the Name of the superior authority with whom a complaint can be made for negligence of duty by FAA with a request to designate some other responsible officer in place of errant FAA.
  5. No information from PIO even after 35 days ....

    Where a PIO has not replied it must be filed within thirty days from the last date on which one should have received the PIO's reply, To avoid confusion, to be precise this period should be counted from date of sending RTI Application to 60 days + postal transit 5 days.
  6. RTI SECTION U/S 7(1).

    It is certainly a Life or Liberty clause as held in case of Talkotra stadium case wherein Kirti Ajad then MP has filed such application to MCH and CIC has also heard the second appeal within one week, as a match has to take place, and that construction then may endanger the lives of several spectators. Immediately go for first appeal and also go for second appeal after 10 days from filing of First appeal and in second appeal clearly inform larger public interest endangering the lives of citizens for using Life or Liberty clause.
  7. RTI Complaint format before CIC

    Members can guide on precedents alone. Supreme Court has categorically stated that a complaint under Sec.18 is not eligible for information. CIC might have considered the complaint after first appeal as second appeal which is their discretion. The hearing might have been out of turn depending on appellant's eligibility for priority hearing. The advice is not for filing first appeal, the advice is specifically for going to second appeal after exploring options of first appeal.
  8. This forum is dedicated for guiding citizens under RTI Act. Members in the forum are not competent and are not experts in providing guidance without knowing facts of medical history. It is believed that a qualified professional doctor recruited in Govt. service can decide on such treatment, and his discretion can not be challenged. However in case of grave negligence, a second opinion may be obtained and further recourse is through Consumer Protection Act, where the chances of getting such compensation are very difficult as treatment by an expert must be challenged with more authentic record and get supporting evidence of an expert more than the doctor that treated. Further getting free treatment may not always be covered under CP Act as you must incur some expenditure as fees, and there must be deficiency of service by that professional to establish a case under CP Act. You have not told as to the medicine doctor prescribed, and the qualification of that expert who has given opinion that the medicine prescribed was only for fever. You can search in google typing the name of the ingredients in the tablet and find it out your self. The doctor might have given symptomatic treatment as fever itself is not a disease by itself and there may be viral infection that goes away within 7 days.
  9. RTI SECTION U/S 7(1).

    Wait upto 20-5-17 and file first appeal if information is not provided by PIO then. Will you please inform the life or liberty clause basing on which you have submitted RTI Application enabling members to inform the possibility of filing first appeal immediately. Answers query wise. 1.If the PIO considers Life or Liberty Clause he has to provide information within 48 hours from date of receipt of your application ie it should be posted by him on 20-4-17 and it should have reached you by this time generally. Wait for another day. 2.Read Section 19 thoroughly. 30 days from receipt of PIO reply or Date of receipt by PIO (18-04-17) + 3o days period act has given to PIO +postal transit time from PIO.5 days 3.FAA has to deliver order within 30 days + postal transit 5 days in normal circumstances, he may take 45 days instead of 30 days for given circumstances recorded in writing. 4.Within 90 days from the date on which the decision should have been made or was actually received from FAA. Please go through sec.19 thoroughly and diarize the due dates and file appeals promptly so that you can get chances of hearing early.
  10. CPIO denied Inspection

    Go for First appeal bringing attention of FAA that CPIO has not stated any section or subsection of RTI (Sec.8 or 9) with such justification for denial of inspection and information is treated as deliberate and malafide denial and pray for permitting inspection form of information as expeditiously as possible free of cost.
  11. FIR copy not given

    1.The incharge of a police station is generally called Station House officer. 2.Simple format is provided below. Search website of Police of your state to locate Public Information officer, format of application and procedure for remitting RTI Fees. Application dt.23rd Apr,2018 seeking information under RTI Act filed Before: State Public Information officer,...................Police,.................. Fee: Rs.10/- Adhesive court fee stamp of Rs.10/- affixed herebelow Applicant:..................................... Information solicited: 1.Please provide a certified copy of complaint filed on....................by.......................reporting lost ...........................Make mobile at.......................... Applicant.
  12. FIR copy not given

    Even before enactment of RTI, Supreme Court directed officials to provide copy of FIR within reasonable time. Providing of FIR copy is mandatory of Station officer. In many states complainants are getting FIRs on such complaints through Kiosks/E Sewa. FIR is just a ritual/formality. The choice is left to you either to request SHO or to file RTI Application and seek such copy. As the phone has been lost due to negligence and no criminal offence is involved, they may give FIR and not traceable report and if the Police are really helpful they bring the attention of such missing mobile to CYBER CRIME and track the usage point through GPS, if a GPS no. was provided to them.
  13. RTI Complaint format before CIC

    There is no prescribed format for complaint to CIC. Normal format is as below. Before CENTRAL INFORMATION COMMISSION, New Delh. Complaint dt....................................................................No.../2018 Public Authority.:............................... Complainant:.................................................... 1.Brief facts: Complainant has filed RTI Application seeking information on.....................................there was no response, hence treating the information as deemed denial this first appeal. or PIO has responded on.................and PIO has not provided complete, correct and relevant information. Self attested copies of RTI Application with service proof and PIO response enclosed. 2.Grounds for complainant: CPIO has deliberately with malafide intentions not provided information thus failing in his duty and statutory obligation or provided incorrect, misleading and incomplete information. 3.PRAYER: Appellant prays for imposing penalty and recommendation for disciplinary action against CPIO in failing in his statutory obligations. Complainant. Please search CIC website for online procedure which is user friendly. Please do not think that complaint to CIC can bring information, and even complaint comes up for hearing only after 2 years, and IC can not order CPIO to provide information, and very rarely fines the CPIO. Instead go for first appeal and seek personal hearing opportunity and after FAA orders seek all remedies under RTI Act including providing of information.
