    RTI to Civil Supplies dept

    Hi, I'd like to file an RTI to AP state civil supplies dept for getting information on the some other person's ration card (including income details, address, date of birth). I am asking for a copy of ration card. Here's my application: ========== PETITION FILED U/S. 4(1)(b)(xii) of RIGHT TO INFORMATION ACT, 2005 To, Central Public Information Officer, Department of Consumer Affairs and Civil Supplies Civil Supplies Bhavan, Somajiguda, Hyderabad-500 082 Name of the applicant: Contact no. of the applicant: Address: Required Information: Details of the ration card (including a copy of the ration card) of D/o , R/o: Way of furnishing copies/information: Personal hand over to the applicant Applicant Fee paid: Rs. 10/- As far as my knowledge and belief, the information sought by me will not come under the purview of Sec. 8, 9 and schedule 2 of RTI Act - 2005. The information sought by me falls under Sec. 4(1)(b)(xii) and thus is not third party information. I am ready to pay the cost for the information sought by me provided the mode of payment is informed. If the information sought is not within the time or incomplete/false as prescribed in the RTI Act, then to whom I should apply for First Appeal and furnish the concerned authority name, designation and address. ========== Please let me know if this looks to be sent. I do not have the name/address of the CPIO of the department (there are several PIOs for various things like Administration&Vigilance, Public Distribution System, Marketing, Finance, Engineering etc) so is the address above fine? I am seeking for a copy of the ration card, is that fine? Will it have income details, address proof and date of birth? Is this information disclosable? Are you aware of any decision by CIC or anyone where this information is stated to be disclosable to third parties? If yes, I'll attach that decision so that the chances of rejecting are reduced. If you have any suggestions to make the application better and effective, please let me know. Thanks
  9. Hi to all, I am glad to share my experience in getting a new Ration card for me and my family in the Chennai city by spending not more than Rs.25/- ... Yes only Rupees Twenty Five with no bribe... within a period of 45 days. Almost everyone in Tamil Nadu would say as if all Government jobs can be fulfilled only by means of giving bribe to the government officials. But I want myself to differ from that statement. Only when we are not perfect enough in the required documents, there the bribe comes into picture. When we have all our documents in place with no holes in it then for sure you can achieve getting the Government job done without any bribe I believe (since I am Successful). Let me list out the steps that I have followed in order to get a Ration card on my name Step 1: I removed my name from my Father's Ration card and got a name deletion certificate (with in a period of 7 days), also I took a Xerox of the page in the original Ration card, where the information for deleting my name is mentioned. Step 2: I removed my Wife's name from her Father's Ration card and got her name deletion certificate, also took a Xerox of the page in the original Ration card, where the information for deleting my Wife's name is mentioned. Step 3: I took a Xerox copy of the Ration card of my house owner as the address proof of my stay in the rented house, along with a letter from my House owner Step 4: I took a Xerox copy of my Son's birth certificate Step 5: With all the above said proof I filled in the Ration card application form with the help of a person who writes it in the Civil supplies office. I gave Rs.20/- for the form as well as for filling in the application Step 6: With a passport size photograph pasted in the form I submitted all my documents along with my marriage certificate and invitation (only the name deletion certificate should be in original, take Xerox copy for your reference) Step 7: I submitted all the relevant documents on 3rd of December 2011 Step 8: With in a period of 2 weeks a person from Civil supplies office will come for verification to confirm whether you are staying in the mentioned address. Even if your house owner confirms that you stay there, then no issues. Step 9: If at all some documents are missing out, then the verifying officer will request you to provide those documents. Better do it immediately as and when the person reports you, if there is any delay from your side then there are chances of your documents to go missed out (if your original name deletion certificate is missed out, it is very difficult to get a duplicate of it ) Step 11: If there are no queries from the verification officer, then it means, your Ration card is all set to go for Printing (just give him a call and confirm). Step 12: After 2 weeks time of the Civil Supplies officer's visit at your home, you can directly go to the Civil Supplies office and inquire about your Card Status Step 13: They would ask you to call a number to confirm when will be your Card ready for collection Step 14: After the confirmation via Call you can go to Civil supplies office to collect your Ration Card by giving Rs.5/- as printing cost Step 15: Finally now the time comes… You have your most longed Ration Card on your hand with your Photo printed on top right corner…..hurrrrray……. Step 16: Final step is to take the Ration Card to the Ration shop in your area, (the shop number will be printed on your Ration Card with its address) for getting a seal from the manager of the Shop. It means your Card is ready to purchase commodities from that shop from the consecutive month onwards. Note: The manager in the shop might ask you to leave by giving the card to him saying that he is busy and will give the card with seal in an hour or so… Please don’t give your card to him and leave, as he will not give you any acknowledgement for the same. If he misses it out, then no way you can get a duplicate Card So these are my experience in getting a new Ration card on my Name. And I am successful without giving any bribe… Hope it would be useful for many like me. All the very best, get a New Ration Card with no bribe Jaihind!!

  11. Hi, I am trying to help my cook who is from Orissa and who is struggling to get BPL ration card in his name. It seems every time a officer comes to their place and gives some reason and refuses to give BPL ration card to him. I would like to know how should questions be framed in this case so that he gets to know the exact reason for the rejection of BPL card. Also how the authority takes decision to determine whether a particular family is BPL or not. I also saw that there exists a E Request which can be used to file an RTI application in Orissa which I am planning to use. I guess Food Supplies and Consumer Welfare is the appropriate PIO in this case.
  12. Dear All I have recently framed a RTI Application to one of my relative. I have attached the same in the attachment for other member use. This application can be used as standard Status information seeking application Thanks & Regards SS.THANURation_Card_Status_TN.doc Ration_Card_Status_TN.pdf

    Ration Card

    Myself Jatinder S Sahnan and belongs to Jalandhar, PUNJAB. Here I need your help about the renewal of Ration card. The SARPANCH of our native village (Munak Kalan, Distt: Hoshiarpur, Punjab) requested for the renewal of RATION CARDs for the all villagers on dated 17-10-10. Its general ration cards not BPL or others. After this he several times visits/ requested to the Foods and Civil supply department for the same. Initially the officer and inspector of related department told us that they are busy in the season of RICE and will continue the process in November end or in December. After this he told us that we don’t have the required Stationary and due this unable to make the Ration cards. We again submit the reminder on dated 01-06-2011. But this time he initially ignored and after several efforts told us that the department is not making any type of Ration card. Is it true? I just want to know the reality. So please guide me, so that I can help the persons of my village. So please guide me. Thanks, Jatinder S Sahnan (Posting of mail ids is against RTI India - Forum Rules - hence deleted)

  16. Hi, Owing to my father's career, we have never stayed in a city for more than 5 years and most of the places have been rural areas, up in North India. My parents are posted in delhi now, while I am studying in chennai. Our native is Tamil Nadu and my dad hails from a town near Kumbakonam. We own a house in Chennai but have never lived there. We have never owned a ration card in my dad's name either. My sister is about to join college and TNEA requires us to submit a nativity certificate, which in turn asks for a Ration card. How do I go about getting a ration card or the nativity certificate without using a ration card ?

  19. As reported by PTI in dnaindia.com on 7 July 2008: DNA - India - Ration card scam in Delhi unearthed - Daily News & Analysis Ration card scam in Delhi unearthed NEW DELHI: Believe it or not. A woman in Badarpur area of south Delhi has a whopping 901 ration cards in her name and that too in the same address. The irony is that Manju, resident of Jasola village, herself does not know that she has got so many ration cards registered in her name. In fact, she is not the only one to have several ration cards in one particular name. There are many such cases which came to light recently after Food and Supplies Department of Delhi government undertook an exercise to match names and addresses of the entire list of ration cards holders here. "They have found that 1,70,598 bogus cards existed of which 1,41,978 are Above Poverty Line (APL) cards and about 28,620 are Below Poverty Line (BPL) and Antodhya cards," RTI activist Arvind Kejrewal said here while releasing documents in this regard here. Delhi has 15 lakh APL cards and about four lakh BPL cards. Of these 10 per cent cards have been found to be bogus. "As a result of this in the last four years nearly a subsidy smounting to almost Rs 257 crore has been siphoned off," said Kejrewal. In the last four years, subsidy amounting to Rs 176,84,77,968 on APL card holders, Rs 45,52,84,080 on BPL card holders and Rs 34,79,45,472 on those having AAY cards have been siphoned off too. Commenting on the issue, Delhi's Food and Civil Supplies Minister Haroon Yusuf said action will be taken against those found guilty, even if they are within the department. The Minister said the Delhi government had suspected this and had been working for the last four months to unearth details. For almost four years, rations have been regularly drawn on these cards. Each card holder gets 25 kg of wheat and 10 kgs of rice. "Altogether, about two lakh tonnes of wheat and 82,000 tonnes of rice have been diverted in four years on these bogus cards," said another RTI activist. The concentration of different bogus ration cards varies in different areas. In North west Delhi, 58,241 bogus cards were found in a population of 49,552, in west Delhi, a population of 35,847 people had 40,796 bogus ration cards followed by 21,257 bogus cards amongst 17,528 in south Delhi. In north east Delhi, 14,728 bogus ration cards were detected in a population of 12,499, in south Delhi 14,470 bogus ration cards were found in a population of 14,470, in east Delhi 10,479 ration cards existed in a population of 8,668, while in New Delhi area in central Delhi and north Delhi area 2099, 4713 and 3815 bogus ration cards had been issued for a population of about than 1000. Interestingly, these people in whose name the bogus cards existed, were not even aware about it. Santosh, an RTI activist who resided in Sundernagri, had more than one card in her name. "I have just one card but when the list came out, I was shocked that there was another card too," she said. "Investigations needs to be done immediately so that the benefits actually reach the poor. There should be a CBI inquiry into this," said Kejrewal. There can be two possible causes for such a state of affairs, said Kejrewal. "It is so that the food department officials are distributing the residential proofs of legitimate people to various shop owners at a price. The papers are then exploited by these shop owners to get multiple cards issued," he said "Or there is one person who owns so many shops. The shop owners in these record are merely friends of this person. It is this person who conspired to get so many cards issued in the same name and address for all these shops," Kejrewal said.

    RTI Ration card information

    Where can I apply for knowing about the ration card information. What is the procedure under the RTI Act? I stay in Pune and I am not aware about the aforesaid office for applying?
  22. Hi, We are in Chennai (Tamil Nadu) and want to know the procedure to change the address in the ration card within the same region
  23. As reported by Clara lewis in timesofindia.indiatimes.com on 8 February 2010: 29 lakh fake ration cards seized last year - Mumbai - City - The Times of India 29 lakh fake ration cards seized last year MUMBAI: The state government last year weeded out 29 lakh bogus ration cards across Maharashtra, according to information obtained under the Right to Information (RTI) Act. The highest number of bogus rations cards were found in Mumbai (6.5 lakh), followed by Pune (3 lakh), Nashik 1.5 lakh, Nagpur and Ahmednagar 1.1 lakh respectively. Following the huge number of bogus ration cards, the Election Commission had deleted it from the list of proofs that could be submitted to be allowed to vote. But after protests from political parties, it was re-introduced. Social activist Anil Galgali, who obtained the information, said the numbers showed how easy it was to obtain a ration card with false proof or none at all. “In the Kurla slums on the airport land, there are several touts offering to make pre-dated ration cards so that a person becomes eligible for a free house,’’ he said. Anil Deshmukh, minister for food and civil supplies, said the scrutiny of ration cards this year is likely to yield another 10 lakh bogus ration cards. “Along with the form that is to be submitted, we ask for the electoral roll number which is unique for every voter, a copy of the electricity bill, house rent bill and income tax receipt. It becomes easy to trace bogus ration card holders,’’ he said. With the huge number of bogus cards coming to light, the scrutiny will be made an annual feature. Lack of awareness on the documents required for obtaining a ration card was the key reason why people approach touts, said Vinita Singh of NGO Satark Nagrik Sangathana. Ration card is really a food card but is mixed up as an identity card, said Singh. This was the reason why even those who did not purchase foodgrains from the PDS obtain a ration card. “When there is a government resolution that allows homeless people to have a ration card, why should there be an insistence on proof of residence? The result is that in the slums, a lot of people are forced to approach a tout and hence the high rate of bogus cards. The current going rate for a ration card in the slums is Rs 7,000 to Rs 8,000 per card,’’ she said. Meanwhile, the state has extended the date for submission of ration cards for scrutiny up to February 15. The scrutiny is being done for below poverty line (yellow card holders) and above poverty line (orange card holders). White card holders or those who do not avail of foodgrains from the PDS have been excluded. According to the data obtained under RTI, nearly 22 lakh of the 29 lakh bogus cards were from above poverty line category. “We are also planning to introduce the Irish Biometric system, in which a person’s thumbprint is captured as proof for identity,” said Deshmukh.
