However the IT Expressway is a public limited company having entered into agreement with Govt of TN and others for developing and maintaining a particular stretch of road.

  6. Hello, I require help on co-operative issue. I had filed the RTI with the PIO, Dy registrar of co-op societies seeking information on affairs of society. The PIO has replied stating that the information I am seeking is available with co-operative society. My query is: 1] Can PIO direct an applicant to private body for information? 2] The society in question comes under the jurisdiction of the PIO, since PIO is public authority and co-operative society a private body, is it not duty of PIO to seek information from society and give it to me? How can PIO direct me back to society? This is RTI application, either I have to appeal or I have to forego. I cannot complaint against reply. So I want to approach FAA, under what grounds can I? 3] What kind of violation PIO has committed by directing me back to private society? 4] Does co-operative society come under the purview of RTI ACt? Your views are appreciated. I am fighting lone battle with corrupt system.

    PIO Sends a staff to my house

    The person in the article below is me. I had a corporation official visit my house with the RTI and asking for my whereabouts. However the PIO has sent a reply on 8/5/19 stating that AE Div 170 is the person responsible for inspecting the banners on the particular stretch. It is after finalising this reply that I had got a call from AE Div 170 on 8/5/19 evening and a person visited my house on 9/5/19. The reply sent by PIO dated 8/5/19 was received on 11/5/19. Further The AE has stated that he has inspected the stretch and removed illegal banners immediately. However I have material evidence that the banners remained in the same place from afternoon till late night. Only the persons who kept the banner had removed them. So can I penalise the PIO for providing false and incorrect information.
  10. I had been taken to govt hospital to get report before being lodged in jail in a false case. Now my RTI to the govt hospital seeking copy of Accident Report/OP Ticket/Medical Examination report has been replied stating no such report available in my name on the date of occurance of the said incident. But I was lodged in prison only after submitting the report given by hospital to prison authorities. Now I would like to inspect the records available with the govt hospital on that day from 8 pm to 12 am. Can I go for first appeal seeking clarification as incorrect information is furnished and a report has been given by the hospital ? What Are Grounds clauses to be included? I have not asked for inspection in the original RTI. Now can I request inspection in the first appeal or should i file a new RTI for that?

  17. Critical Analysis of Supreme Court Judgements on the RTI Act, 2005 By Shailesh Gandhi, Former Central Information Commissioner Judgment : Thalappalam Ser. Coop Bank Vs. State of Kerala (2013) 16 SCC 82 The issue before the Court: Whether a co-operative society falls within the definition of "public Authority" under Section 2(h) of the RTI Act and be bound by the obligations to provide information sought for by a citizen under the RTI Act. The observations of the Court: Para 37: “We often use the expressions “questions of law” and “substantial questions of law” and explain that any question of law affecting the right of parties would not by itself be a substantial question of law. In Black's Law Dictionary(6th Edn.), the word 'substantial' is defined as 'of real worth and importance; of considerable value; valuable. Belonging to substance; actually existing; real: not seeming or imaginary; not illusive; solid; true; veritable. Something worthwhile as distinguished from something without value or merely nominal. Synonymous with material.' The word 'substantially' has been defined to mean 'essentially; without material qualification; in the main; in substance; materially.' In the Shorter Oxford English Dictionary (5th Edn.), the word 'substantial' means 'of ample or considerable amount of size; sizeable, fairly large; having solid worth or value, of real significance; sold; weighty; important, worthwhile; of an act, measure etc. having force or effect, effective, thorough.' The word 'substantially' has been defined to mean 'in substance; as a substantial thing or being; essentially, intrinsically.' Therefore the word 'substantial' is not synonymous with 'dominant' or 'majority'. It is closer to 'material' or 'important' or 'of considerable value.' 'Substantially' is closer to 'essentially'. Both words can signify varying degrees depending on the context. Para 38. “Merely providing subsidiaries, grants, exemptions, privileges etc., as such, cannot be said to be providing funding to a substantial extent, unless the record shows that the funding was so substantial to the body which practically runs by such funding and but for such funding, it would struggle to exist. The State may also float many schemes generally for the betterment and welfare of the cooperative sector like deposit guarantee scheme, scheme of assistance from NABARD etc., but those facilities or assistance cannot be termed as “substantially financed” by the State Government to bring the body within the fold of “public authority” under Section 2(h)(d)(i) of the Act.” The Court held that: Cooperative Societies registered under the Kerala Co-operative Societies Act will not fall within the definition of "public Authority" as defined under Section 2(h) of the RTI Act unless they are substantially financed. The Court ruled that Cooperative Societies are not Public authorities covered in RTI unless they are substantially financed. It defined the word substantial finance thus: The Court after looking at the various dictionary meanings-‘material’, ‘important’, ‘of considerable value’, ‘not illusive’ decided that it means essential only, when it says, 'Substantially' is closer to 'essentially' . It further said at para 38. “Merely providing subsidiaries, grants, exemptions, privileges etc., as such, cannot be said to be providing funding to a substantial extent, unless the record shows that the funding was so substantial to the body which practically runs by such funding and but for such funding, it would struggle to exist. The State may also float many schemes generally for the betterment and welfare of the cooperative sector like deposit guarantee scheme, scheme of assistance from NABARD etc., but those facilities or assistance cannot be termed as “substantially financed” by the State Government to bring the body within the fold of “public authority” under Section 2(h)(d)(i) of the Act. But, there are instances, where private educational institutions getting ninety five per cent grant-in-aid from the appropriate government, may answer the definition of public authority under Section 2 (h)(d)(i)” Effectively this states that the finance must be essential to its functioning that it would struggle to exist without it. No Information provided. Our analysis of the judgment: The conclusion of the court that cooperative societies are not public authorities unless they are substantially financed is correct. However in defining the phrase ‘substantial finance’ it appears to have narrowed the scope of the RTI act by claiming that ‘substantial finance’ means ‘essential’ finance without which the body would struggle to exist. Thus even if a NGO or private body receives 100 crores annually it may not be deemed to be substantially financed if its total budget is around 500 crores and it argues that the amount from the Government is not essential for its working. The Court did not choose the words ‘material, important, of considerable value, not illusive’ which would have expanded the scope of the Act. Whereas its ruling that a Cooperative society does not automatically become a public authority appears right, its ruling on the words ‘substantial finance’ appears to constrict the ambit of the law, far more than what it should. satyamevajayate.info/wp-content/uploads/2017/08/Analysis-of-Supreme-Court-judgments-on-RTI.pdf

  19. एक शहीद सैनिक के जान की कभी भी क्षतिपूर्ति नहीं हो सकती । फिर भी, शहीद सैनिकों के परिवारों के लिए किया हुआ ये एक छोटा सा प्रयास । A small effort for the families of martyred soldiers: Since last 2 years, I have been filing series of RTI applications related to Indian Armed Forces and Central Armed Police Forces (CAPF) for ensuring ex-Gratia etc. to families of martyred soldiers or soldiers declared as battle casualty from Central level. Also, filed different grievance applications for giving ex-Gratia to families of martyred soldiers from State level as required. Attached photo copies are just some of the responses received to the different applications. During above long process, responses and actions were taken by various departments like Ministry of Defense (Navy), Department of Ex-Servicemen Welfare (DESW) MoD, IHQ of MoD (Army), Air Head Quarters and many Zilla Sainik Welfare Offices and many District Collector offices and also Mantralaya at state level. Note: The RTI applications were primarily around Indian Armed Forces and Central Armed Police Forces (CAPF). 1) Indian Armed Forces: This includes below 3 professional uniformed services: i] Indian Army, ii] Indian Navy, and iii] Indian Air Force. 2) Central Armed Police Forces (CAPF): This includes forces like: i] Border Security Force (BSF), ii] Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF), iii] Central Industrial Security Force (CISF), iv] Indo-Tibetan Border Police (ITBP), and v] Sashastra Seema Bal (SSB). and others. Hope the world will reach to a civilization level wherein there won’t be any need of violence. उम्मीद है कि दुनिया एक दिन सभ्यता (civilization) के उस स्तर तक पहुंच जाएगी, जहां हिंसा या war की कोई आवश्यकता नहीं रह जायेगी । Abhijit Dabhekar.

  24. just another success story from RTI here we live in suburbs and had a very poor road condition that went from bad to worse due to the recent monsoon. inspite of all these,there were frequent road diggings by the BSNL/EB and metro water people. there were times where there appeared visible road cavings making it even tougher for 4 wheelers. filed RTI with each of these department - EB/metro water/nation highways/BSNL on the approval they had for carrying out the road digging work and each one ended up pointing finger at other departments in their replies and got a vague response that temporary patch will be done. finally filed a CM cell petition followed with few RTIs. and to my surprise,i could see glittering tar roads now and all this was done within a week's time with the vehicle involved in the road work having board as IMMEDIATE. as always, i dont take credit for my RTI but am sure my petitions and RTIs would have made a difference /had made someone questionable and triggered to get the work done.
