  1. Hi All, I have few queries , kindly guide me for the same. 1. The website of certain Government departments do not have PIO details and in some cases it shows error message. What is the alternative way to find out the detail of PIO of any particular department. 2. In certain cases , PIO gets transferred or retired and the RTI application is rejected. I have few applications which were not accpeted by the concerned department mentioning that the concerned person has been transferred on my application envelope itself. 3. In few cases my RTI application was not accepted and was returned back without mentioning any reason. How to put someone liable in such case when the application itself was returned back? 4. I have sent a application to Kulti Municipal Corporation and in the response they mentioned that the concerned person has to be personally available at their office on the prescribed date and time to collect the information , are they authorised to do so???

  5. A column by Osama Manzar in livemint.com on 27 June 2011: http://www.livemint.com/2011/06/26205310/The-IT-Act-of-India-needs-to-m.html?h=D The IT Act of India needs to make provision for constituency websites Such websites can serve as online gateways to these constituencies, allowing representatives to showcase the work they are doing and interact with their voters without meeting them physically Union information technology (IT) and communication minister Kapil Sibal invited more than 200 people a couple of weeks ago to discuss a revised IT Act the government is working on. Amid the general flow of ideas, I had the chance to put forth a point as well. India has about 250,000 electoral constituencies at the parliamentary, assembly and panchayat levels, I said, and more than three million elected representatives. Under the Right to Information (RTI) Act, 2005, they are all supposed to provide all kinds of constituency-related information to voters. Yet, hardly anyone has an official website. The minister replied: “It is more a matter of adoption of technology or media rather than that of policy. For example, I have my own website and others could also develop theirs and their constituency’s websites.” I googled the minister’s name; the website he said he has does not show up on the first few search pages. There is, however, an up-to-date Wikipedia page on him, which carries a link to his website kapilsibalmp.com. I clicked on the link and came up with an error message. I similarly searched for the two junior IT and communication ministers—Sachin Pilot and Gurudas Kamat. Pilot, too, has a Wikipedia page, while his personal website, sachinpilot.com, shows it is under maintenance. Googling Kamat gave me his personal website, gurudaskamat.com, as the first link, but the site is still in 2009 election mode—appealing people to vote for him. Several other elected representatives, particularly young parliamentarians, also have websites, but they almost invariably have the dot-com extension, which is typically meant for commercial activities. I wonder why elected representatives will use such an extension. It indicates the websites are just personal initiatives, not the official websites of the constituencies or the representatives. It also shows why it is important to have a policy that obliges elected representatives to put online all official information that can be of use to their constituency members. Such websites can serve as online gateways to these constituencies, allowing representatives to showcase the work they are doing and interact with their voters without meeting them physically. Several years ago, I had said the same thing to Pilot. He agreed, but told me the member of Parliament local area development (MPLAD) fund—given to every MP for development work in their constituencies—does not have provisions for such expenditure. I offered to do it through the Digital Empowerment Foundation if he could help us get all the information. Pilot invited me to accompany him to his constituency, to collect information and witness the ground realities, so they could be reflected in the website. We built the parliamentary constituency website as an example for others. IT has changed the world over the past two decades and helped India come on a par with the developed world in a number of ways. But for the country to reap the benefits of IT optimally, it is imperative for the government to adapt to the information revolution and for elected representatives to make information easily available to people online. Experience shows this will only happen through changes in policy.
  6. Allmost all the other PSC are having there own websites but in Haryana Neither HPSC nor HSSC were having its own website and the state people were facing lot of difficulties as they had to run for smallest information to the head office of the HPSC or HSSC. I asked the HPSC and HSSC about the WEb Site through RTI , Both HPSC and HSSC replied that they are providing in near future . Now HPSC has started its web site and haryana people will not have to run to the head office for there work. HSSC has yet to start its own web site.

    MC website in need of updates

    As reported by Khushboo Sandhu at indianexpress.com on Sep 12 2010 Chandigarh : Outdated information pertaining to nodal officials for RTI queries on display The website of the Municipal Corporation has not been updated for a while now. The names of officials to be contacted for information under the Right to Information Act listed on the website are those who were transferred out from the civic body two years ago. The website mentions the names of Talwinder Dhingra and S K Chadha as Central Public Information Officers and H S Kandhola as the Appellate Officer. None of these officials are working with the civic body at present. While Kandhola was repatriated to his parent cadre around two years ago, S K Chadha and Talwinder Dhingra have not been with the civic body for almost three years now. An RTI activist R K Garg says the information provided on the website is obsolete. “It is against the spirit of RTI: the basic information itself is incorrect. The purpose of having the website is lost if people cannot rely on the information being provided. When a large amount of funds have been spent on revamping the website, the information being provided should also be updated,” he said. Sachin, a resident of Sector 21, says that while he has complained a number of times to the civic body, there has been no improvement in the system. “The website is an example of wastage of public money. People rely on the Internet as an important source of information. We expect such information to be correct. Not everyone can know that these officers are no longer with the Municipal Corporation. It is only when one visits the office of the civic body that he/she comes to know that these officials are not present. We feel harrassed when we do not know whom to contact with complaints in case information provided by the MC is not sufficient,” he said. The lists of the ward committees are also yet to be updated, despite these being formed a couple of months ago. The residents also complain that they rarely get replies to the e-mails they send to the officials. Councillor Pallav Mukherjee says the website has been a complete waste. “There is a need to update the information. The website is in a state of disarray. It should also be ensured that prompt replies are received when communication is sent through e-mails. This is not being done,” he adds. The officials meanwhile say the process of updating the website is going on. Joint Commissioner-II Kamlesh Kumar says: “We will update the information on the website. It has been decided that instead of giving names of officials concerned for getting information under RTI, their designations would be displayed on the website. The process of updating the website is going on. In the coming days the changes would come up.”

    MCD has no CPIO!

    As reported by SUBHASH CHANDRA AGRAWAL at merinews.com on May 08, 2010 EVER SINCE the competent authority at Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) under RTI Act has changed, all letters addressed to ‘Central Public Information Officer (CPIO)’ mailed through Speed Post or Registered Post at MCD headquarters at Town Hall, Chandni Chowk, Delhi-110006 are returned undelivered with remark ‘No such post at MCD Town Hall’. Earlier RTI petitions sent at this address were duly acknowledged by MCD. Interestingly even other government-departments sent transferred RTI petitions concerning MCD at this very address only. But only commoners sending RTI petitions to MCD are harassed deliberately. Central Information Commission and Department of Personnel & Training (DoPT) should look into the matter, and take action against Competent Authority and the Postal Receipt Executive at MCD so that users of RTI Act may not be harassed. It is significant to note that even MCD website does not have any details about CPIO and first Appellate Authorities at MCD despite the fact that Information Commissioner Shailesh Gandhi handling petitions against MCD at Central Information Commission gave an educative lecture to MCD officers for dealing RTI petitions as indicated at MCD website.

  9. As reported by Manish Umbrajkar at timesofindia.indiatimes.com on Apr 24, 2010 PUNE: For the last few months, the Pimpri-Chinchwad Municipal Corporation (PCMC) has stopped providing the details of decisions taken at the meetings of its four divisional ward committees. Earlier, the municipal corporation used to post the details of the proceedings of the meetings to its website on a regular basis, to inform citizens the decisions taken by the local area committees. The only details of meetings available on a regular basis are that of the meetings of general body and the standing committee, which takes all decisions related to policy and financial matters, the law committee, besides the slum development and women and child welfare committee. The website, pcmcindia.gov.in, started last November, allows citizens to easily access information about draft policies and development programmes to be implemented. While initially details of all the four divisional committees were being made available on a regular basis, for the last few months, no fresh updates have been made. It was only after enquiries made to officials that information of three ward committees was updated on Thursday. Currently, no details of any meetings held after December 2009 of the A ward committee are available. Similarly, no details are available of the meetings held after November last year of the D ward committee. The details of the C ward committee, though updated on Thursday, shows the last date of update as January 22, 2010. Similarly, the last date of update of the B ward committee is February 3. Asked about the reason why the details of the meetings of the ward committees are not posted on a regular basis, Neelkant Poman, head of the computers division, said he would seek the details, as the probable reason could be that the agenda and the minutes of the meetings are not made available immediately. According to civic officials, the meetings of all the four divisional ward committees are held once in a month. Each committee has fixed a certain day, usually the second Wednesday or Friday of that month. According to civic officials, it is mandatory to hold 12 meetings of the ward committees every year. Civic officials, however, added that the ward level offices have simply become complaint redressal centres, besides taking up works of routine maintenance, water supply and cleanliness. The ward committees have powers to approve only those works whose estimated expenditure is within Rs 10 lakh. Although the ward committee offices have an average budget up to Rs 10 crore, major expenditure of the ward committee offices is spent on salaries and office works. Each ward committee has about 700 to 800 civic employees. Incidentally, according to civic officials, providing information to citizens is part of the state level commitment under the administrative reforms of the JNNURM. The PCMC has been providing information about the 44 main civic departments, and another section titled Information' under RTI on the PCMC website has details of information officers, along with their office telephone numbers and email addresses. The PCMC has also posted the details of the annual budget on its website. Source: Details of ward committee meetings missing on PCMC website - Pune - City - The Times of India
  10. Can I access Any state Name change gazette onoline ? Is there any website for the same.
  11. On 18-11-2009 CIC has levied the penalty of Rs. 5000 on a school principal for violation of section 4 (proactive disclosure). Here is the link to the decision. http://cic.gov.in/CIC-Orders/SG-18112009-25.pdf The CIC said it had imposed maximum permissible penalty of Rs. 5000 under the Act.
  12. As reported by Manish Umbrajkar on 17 November 2009 at timesofindia.indiatimes.com PUNE: Citizens in Pimpri-Chinchwad can now access online the decisions taken by the standing commitee and the general body (GB) of the municipal corporation. The Pimpri-Chinchwad Municipal Corporation's (PCMC) facility will allow the public to easily access information about draft policies and development programmes to be implemented. The information is available on the civic body's website, pcmcindia.gov.in. Incidentally, the Pune Municipal Corporation began a similar practice a few months ago. At the click of a button, PCMC residents can now see the agendas for the monthly GB meetings and the weekly standing committee meetings. Minutes of earlier meetings are also being posted online. The details will be provided in Marathi. Besides, the agendas of the law, women and child welfare, sports and the four zonal committees are being made available since the last two months. In Pimpri-Chinchwad, the GB meetings are held around the 20th of every month, while the standing committee meets every Tuesday. The standing committee takes decisions on all policy issues, including financial matters. Municipal commissioner Ashish Sharma said: "The move is aimed at bringing in transparency in the functioning of the municipal corporation. Providing information to citizens is part of the state-level commitment under the administrative reforms of the JNNURM.'' The PCMC has also begun providing information about the 44 main civic departments. The section titled Information' under RTI on the PCMC website has details of information officers, along with their office telephone numbers and email addresses. Another section provides information about the annual civic budget, as well as information related to the town planning department. Welcoming the move, civic activist Vijay Kumbhar said the public would immensely benefit from the information. "Earlier, an application under the Right to Information (RTI) Act had to be filed to obtain these details, which was time-consuming," he said. Kumbhar, however, stressed that the information should be regularly updated and that citizens too should make the best of this facility. The PCMC, as part of its administrative reforms, had earlier introduced online facilities for payment of property and water tax, applying for building permissions, registration of complaints pertaining to civic services and submission of tenders. In addition, two innovative online services were also been rolled out one to inform the corporation about potholes, and another by which citizens can know whether garbage has been lifted from their neighbourhood bin that day.

  14. I visited the website of Central Drugs Standard Control Organization (CDSCO), Directorate General of Health Services, Ministry of Health and Family Welfare for knowing the details of PIO. I found that the only information posted on the website are the names of CPIO and Appellate Authority, but no other formation has been posted as required by Section 4 of RTI Act. Are Public Authorities not required to post all the information as required by Section 4 on its website?
  15. As reported at ptinews.com on 08 Sep 2009 New Delhi, Sep 8 (PTI) The Central Information Commission today launched its new disabled friendly dedicated website for lodging complaints and appeals. The new website 'www.rti.india.gov.in' has been designed in such a way by National Informatics Centre that even the visually challenged can hear the instructions and details on the portal through speakers in their computers. "With the help of screen reader, any visually challenged person can go through the entire web site. The system will prompt them to file the details and read out the instructions to them. It has been designed keeping the latest international guidelines for such web portals," Neeta Verma, Senior Technical Director with NIC said. The new website was the need of hour as it was difficult to find relevant information on the present website of Central Information Commission. Source: fullstory

    Is there some way to force all govt departments to publish all acts, rules, regulations and guidelines on websites to reduce harassment by bureaucrats? Is RTI the only solution for this ot something as basic as this should be done ab initio by all Govt arms (maybe this can be forced through PILs)? I was looking for information on property tax assessment in mumbai and could not find any definitive information.

    GOI Web sites

    The RTI Act madates that CPIO should suo moto mantain certain basic information on web sites and not force people to appy and await his response. But most CPIOs do not have any web sites, and those that do have either do not update it or are junk yards. So time people take the next step!!!
  19. As reported in merinews.com on 06 November 2008: Information Commission website not informative Information Commission website not informative The apex body under the provisions of the Right to Information Act in the state of Karnataka, the Karnataka Information Commission, violates the provisions of the Act by not disclosing the relevant public information. Nothing can be more ironic!. DESPITE BEING the apex body under the provisions of the Right to Information Act in the state, the Karnataka Information Commission violates the rules of the Act by not disclosing the relevant public information like its annual report, details of the right to information cases, the monthly remuneration of each of its officials and the Commission’s budget, among other things, on its website. Section 4(1) b of the Right to Information Act states that every public authority should take constant steps to provide as much information as possible to the public on its own through easily accessible means like notice boards, newspapers, public announcements, media broadcasts and websites, amongst other media. It especially calls for disclosure of information in an electronic form. “We have been amiss in this area,” says KK Misra, Chief Information Commissioner of the Karnataka Information Commission (KIC). He also blames the National Informatics Centre (NIC) for this lapse. “The NIC has been very busy lately,” he says, “It has not been helping us.” The National Informatics Centre is supposed to provide technical support to various government departments to facilitate e-governance. It also hosts the KIC website. KIC does not have any manpower to maintain the website. Misra says that two operators were appointed a few months back for maintaining data related to the order passed by KIC. One representative from NIC visits occasionally to collect this data and upload it. Apart from orders, there are many other pages on the website like recent decisions, landmark orders, monthly disposal of cases, RTI disclosure, terms and conditions of services of the Information Commissioners and links to central and state government departments and events. These pages either say that they are under construction or are not available. The Commissioner informs that these pages are also supposed to be taken care of by NIC. In addition, the website displays the annual report for 2005-06 only. Reports for 2006-07 and 2007-08 have still not been uploaded. On its part, the NIC says that it is responsible only for providing technical support and hosting the website on its server. All content is to be uploaded by KIC. “Most of our energy goes in hearing and solving cases,” says Misra, adding that they are left with no time to tend to the website. KIC is currently coping with a backlog of 3,000 cases. The Commissioner admitted that KIC needs to take instant steps to provide maximum information on its website. He has requested the Centre for Good Governance, an organisation of the Andhra Pradesh state government, which designed the website of the Information Commission there, to help the KIC out. “Suo moto principles apply to the KIC more than they apply to any other institution,” says Vivek NS, a law student from BMS College, Bangalore, who was associated with a survey on the Right to Information Act, conducted by Public Affairs Centre, a non-governmental organisation based in Bommasandra, Bangalore city. “No excuses can be tolerated,” he added. “The institution at the apex of the Act is faltering; so it definitely sets a bad example for other government organisations,” says Rohan Sachdeva, a law student from ILS Law College, Pune, who was associated with the same survey. He also complained of the inadequacy of information and the lack of an RTI portal on other government websites. According to the survey conducted by the Public Affairs Centre, only 44 per cent of the 39 state government websites studied by them were disclosing public information like details of expenditure and annual reports. “They can’t even fix a website; how are they going to protect the interests of the taxpayers?” asks Megha Gowda from the Public Affairs Centre, adding that ideally no government department should take more than a day or two to upload data on their website.

    Information on cic web site

    One area where the Central Information Commission still needs improvement is the use of technology. It takes days before the status of applicants gets updated on the web portal of CIC. Most of the time the information on the status of appeals/complaints on the web site remains unchanged even days after some action has been taken. Going by my personal experience the status of my appeal as on date on the CIC web site remains as received the appeal whereas the CIC has issued notice to the PIO and the AA to come out with comments on my appeal on 04 Jul 08. The CIC is still using conventional modes like sending a letter by Speed Post/Registry which at times take a lot of time. The letter dated 04 Jul 08 reached me on 10 Jul 08 at the local address. The Office of CIC could have provided this information over the e-mail address provided by me in my application.
  22. If someone visits the official Websites of different State Information Commissions and Central Information Commission one could find them quite dirverse. Some of the websites are very easy to navigate and full of information and some of are totally devoid of any usefull information. Though many of the websites are managed by a single agency called NIC. Members are requested to give their feed back on the best managed and worst managed website among the State Info Commissions including the Central Information Commission. e.g. Kerala SIC does not even publish it's decisions on it's official website. Maharastra SIC dishes out all the information is Chaste Marathi. Sidharth
  23. Chennai: The Central Information Commission has said that Tamil Nadu's State Information Commission will 'very soon' have a dedicated website. It may be recalled that the State Information Commissioner, Mr. S.Ramakrishnan had announced on July 14, 2006 that the SIC would soon have a website designed by the National Informatics Commission to host all important decisions. In response to an e-mailed question to the Chief Information Commissioner, Mr. Wajahat Habibullah last week, Mr. S.Paul, of the CIC said "As per the available information, the Tamil Nadu State Information Commission's website is already under the process of development. Very soon it is going to be launched". At present, the SIC does not have a full-fledged website of its own, and provides the contact information of the State Information Commissioner and two Information Commissioners on a page hosted on the Tamil Nadu Government's website. Several Government departments in Tamil Nadu have also not complied so far with the requirement under the RTI Act to provide information pro-actively on their administrative structure, procedures and powers.
