The Central Information Commission may have ordered Supreme Court judges to declare their assets but it has shied away from disclosure of its own `movable assets'. Responding to a recent RTI application filed by Bengaluru-based activist Arun Agrawal seeking to know movable assets of the information commissioners, the CIC said, “No such information is maintained by it.“ CIC is the transparency watchdog for all central government ministries. The stand taken by the CIC is in contravention to the recently enacted Lokpal Act, which makes it mandatory to declare movable and immovable assets of every official working in the government. The website of the CIC has a column under which assets of all seven information commissioners have been given summarily mentioning only properties owned by them and do not mention cash and other movable assets held by them. Declaration of assets including cash is mandatory for MPs, candidates contesting elections and public servants including SC judges. After the orders of the CIC, the Supreme Court judges have started declaring both their movable and immovable assets which are updated every year and posted on the website of the apex court. The order was upheld by Delhi high court. The commission had recently also directed the Sebi chairman to disclose assets and liabilities. Agrawal in his appeal sought disclosure of movable assets of the information commissioners saying if the CIC does not declare their movable assets, then adverse conclusion may be drawn.

Defence Estate denies info even after HC order Meerut: M A Zafar is yet to have a look at his answer sheets of Defense Estate Services examination 2011. Zafar, a PRO at Cantt Board office, was one of the 54 candidates who sat for the exam in 2011. Six of them cleared the paper, with Zafar scoring the highest marks. However, all the six were failed after a reevaluation of their answer sheets. Zafar then filed a RTI, seeking copies of answer sheets of all the exams conducted within five weeks, but his plea was turned down by Directorate General, Defence Estate, Delhi Cantt, citing "confidential norms". "The central information commission ordered the information officer DG, DEO, on April 23 to supply the copies of answer sheets of all the papers within five weeks, but it didn't happen," said Zafar. He then approached the Delhi High Court on the issue and the HC on September 24, 2014 passed an order in his favour and gave four weeks to the DG to provide the requested information to the petitioner. When Zafar didn't get the desired information after the HC deadline, he filed a contempt petition and the court issued a show cause notice to the respondents on December 12, 2014. It also gave a time period of four weeks till January 14, 2015 to file a reply but nothing has come yet. Zafar has already written a letter to Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar regarding the lackadaisical attitude of the officials. "Unfortunately, the HC order has been thrown in the dustbin deliberately by your officers of the DG, DEO. It is regretted that a high official of government of India is making a mockery of the HC and RTI. It shows that there was a big conspiracy in declaring deliberately all the candidates as failed. There is suspicion that some of the desired candidates couldn't be selected therefore, to accommodate them, a game of fresh examination had been designed," Zafar wrote.

Wednesday April 11 2007 00:00 IST KANNUR: The letters written by leaders of various political parties, extending support to Manmohan Singh for the formation of a government at the Centre, have become a matter of controversy with the refusal of the Presidentâ€™s Secretariat to issue photocopies of these letters under the Right to Information Act. Various political parties including the Karunanidhi-led DMK, CPM, CPI, RJD and other allies of the United Progressive Alliance (UPA) had handed over letters extending support to Manmohan Singh to the President before the formation of the Union Government. The reason cited for refusing to issue the copies of the letters by Nitin Wakankar, Central Public Information Officer, Rashtrapathi Bhavan, is that these letters were given under a â€˜â€˜fiduciary relationshipâ€™â€™ between the authors of the letter and the President and that this came under Section 8(e) of the RTI Act. The argument of the Central Public Information Officer of the Rashtrapati Bhavan is now being challenged by the Thalassery-based Peopleâ€™s Council for Civil Rights headed by T Asafali through an appeal petition filed with the Internal Financial Adiviser and Appellate Authority under the RTI Act at the Presidentâ€™s Secretariat. Asafaliâ€™s request seeking photocopies of the letters written by the leaders of the UPA allies had earlier been rejected by the Central Public Information Officer. In his appeal petition filed with Rasika Chaube, Appellate authority under the RTI Act at the Presidentâ€™s Secretariat, Asafali has contented that â€˜â€˜there is no question of existence of a fiduciary relationshipâ€™â€™ between President of India and the leaders of the parliamentary parties. â€˜â€˜Since some of the coalition partners who offered support to Manmohan Singh for forming government at the Centre are now speaking against it as if there is a change of circumstance, people are entitled to know the contents of the letters,â€™â€™ argues Asafali in his appeal petition. The Appellate authority at the Rashtrapati Bhavan is yet to respond to the appeal petition filed by Asafali. Welcome to Newindpress.com
ganpat1956 posted a topic in RTI in MediaNew Delhi, May. 13 (PTI): Turning down an RTI application seeking legal opinions as received by the Home Ministry in respect to a Delhi High Court decision, the Central Information Commission (CIC) has said divulging such details could compromise the government's position. "The government's interest or the interest of the public authority shall be irretrievably compromised if the communication between that authority and its counsel is made available to the very parties the government or the authority is contesting," said Information Commissioner A N Tiwari in a recent order. The CIC's comments came on an RTI appeal of one K G Bafana, who sought copies of legal opinion received by the Home Ministry after the Delhi High Court had directed the government to take a decision on an arbitration award over a particular issue. Denying such information on the legal opinion as had been received by the government, the commission noted that such a disclosure would be against the relationship between a counsel and his client which is customarily considered to be fiduciary and confidential. "If the legal advice received by the public authority is disclosed, then the next step would be to disclose even the material which it furnished to its counsel to the opinion. This relationship will, therefore, cease to remain either fiduciary or confidential," it observed. The Hindu News Update Service
ganpat1956 posted a topic in RTI in MediaNew Delhi, April 7 The Central Information Commission has rejected an RTI appeal seeking information on premature retirement of fighter pilots in the Indian Air Force (IAF) and said such disclosures were â€œsensitiveâ€ and could lead to unforeseen consequences. â€œAny hasty disclosure of seemingly innocuous statistical information, as in this case, can lead to consequences which may not be properly foreseen at a given point of timeâ€, Information Commissioner A.N. Tiwari said in a recent decision. Dismissing an appeal filed by one Wing Commander Alok Joshi seeking detailed records of the IAFâ€™s fighter pilots who were granted premature retirement from 2004 onwards, the CIC said there was need to exercise caution in divulging information on manpower planning in the armed forces.
