Dear Members, I have to get an update about the construction of a Sainik School building in Rewari, Haryana. Sainik School Rewari . This school was inaugurated way back in 2008-09 and the construction for a new school building was also suppose to start during that session only. It has been almost 5 years there seems to be no sign of new building whereas school continues to run from another (temporary) premise in Rewari. Just want to check the exact status of construction work. These schools comes under Sainik School Society, when I visited their website (Sainik Schools Society) could not locate RTI section. Schools top functionaries i.e principal, head teacher, registrar etc comes from forces, so in that sense they are a govt organization. Want members support in finding out the PIO for concerned school or sainik school society Thanks, Yogesh

"We are not satisfied with the explanation sought to be given for the delay of 41 days in responding to the RTI application. The officer responsible in ministry of defence is directed to inquire into reasons for this delay," Chief Information Commissioner Wajahat Habibullah said. The commission's direction came in its decision on an appeal of Lt colonel (Rtd) Narendra Behl, who, in his Rti plea, sought to know from army headquarters the reasons for denial of allowance to him after his retirement in July, 2004. "A response to the appeal (BEHL'S) could have been straightforward, the public authority has complicated the issue by transferring it from one office to another," Habibullah noted. To Lt Col Behl's plea of July, 2006, a response was forwarded to him in September, 2006 -- about 41 days -- after it became due under the statutory provisions of the RTI act. During a hearing on the appeal filed by BEHL after being dissatisfied with the response from the ministry, the apex transparency panel said that it would have been appropriate, had the replies to him were specific and point wise. Noting that the response to the applicant was not in a satisfactory manner, Habibullah directed the ministry to identify the officers responsible for delay and submit a report with the CIC after seeking their replies on it.

karira posted a topic in RTI in MediaPublished: Friday, January 11, 2008 Court Martial proceedings a public activity,CIC to Defence Min Source: Agencies Court Martial proceedings a public activity,CIC to Defence Min New Delhi, Jan 11 Observing that defence court of inquiry could not be construed as a private activity, the Central Information Commission (CIC) has asked the Defence Ministry to consider revealing details of court martial proceedings against an army officer. In a recent order, the Commission has turned down the Ministry's plea to seek exemption from revealing to one Lt Col Harish Gulati information about inquiry proceedings initiated against him on the grounds that divulging such details would serve no public interest. "It is clear that the applicant is seeking an information concerning a disciplinary case against him and as such it is not an information about some other person so as to attract exemption clauses under RTI Act. The details sought is about a court of inquiry, which is public and not a private activity," Chief Information Commissioner Wajahat Habibullah said. In his Right to Information plea, Gulati had said that despite the court martial proceedings declaring him not guilty, his service was still under a threat. Claiming that he was not provided a hearing and witnesses were threatened during the inquiry proceedings, he said he needed the information to establish that there were no grounds to further proceed against him. The Ministry, however, took a plea that judgement of the court martial proceedings against Gulati was perverse and the case was still under process. Exclusion was also sought on the grounds that information sought by Gulati was held by it in a fiduciary capacity. The Ministry has been directed to re-examine the matter afresh and take a decision on providing the details to Gulati within 15 days. (Agencies)
