Hi! Members, A friend of mine asked for information pertaining to Outer Ring Road proposed for Hyderabd from APPCB. He gets a reply as follows: "The Technical Committee of the Board is an advisory committee. Hence, it may not be possible to give the minutes of the technical committee as they are meant for internal purposes." ..... "The Board cannot give the information submitted by the HUDA as per the provisions of Sec. 8 of the Right to Information Act. You are requested to approach the authorities of HUDA/ORR directly and obtain the information." Is it right to reject the information on the grounds given above? HUDA is also a public body. Is there any provision in section 8 that prevents giving information from a third party concerning public welfare? Please give your comments. K. Babu Rao
ganpat1956 posted a topic in RTI in MediaThe government will come down heavily on officers who do not respond to applications seeking information under the Right to Information (RTI) Act regarding rural development work. 'We will not spare any officer found erring when it comes to giving information under the RTI Act,' Minister for Rural Development Raghuvansh Prasad Singh said here Wednesday. 'Such officials will go to jail.' The minister's comments came when it was pointed out to him that a politician-bureaucrat-contractor nexus in Assam was harassing people who sought information on rural development work under the RTI Act. He was addressing a press conference on his ministry's ongoing projects in Assam. When told that most of the District Rural Development Authority (DRDA) offices in Assam have got the reputation of being corrupt, the minister said, 'Whenever such cases come to our notice, we will take strict action against the officers concerned. We are also launching awareness campaigns in rural areas so that people know their rights.' To another question on contractors taking up work under the Indira Awaas Yojana (IAY), a government-housing scheme for people below the poverty line, he said, 'There is no provision whatsoever for IAY work to be allocated to contractors. Strict action will be taken against anybody found doing so.' He clarified that, under this scheme, the money goes straight to the beneficiary's bank account and there is no scope for middlemen to swindle money. 'Each family gets Rs.22,000 under IAY, and in the hill areas, the amount is Rs.27,000,' he added. Singh also stated that, to ensure transparency in rural development work at the grassroots level, the government is giving special attention to village level vigilance committees. 'Village level vigilance committees are being constituted and they are being imparted training so that corruption is totally eradicated,' he said.

New Delhi, July 20: The Central Information Commission (CIC) has pulled up the CBI for denying information to a right to information (RTI) applicant on cash-for-query TV sting operation in which MPs were accused of taking bribes for asking questions in Parliament. The panel headed by Chief Information Commissioner Wajahat Habibullah termed the denial of information as "symptomatic of a larger malaise which is an unsystematic servicing of the Right to Information by the CBI" and directed the agency to provide the details within 10 days. Chennai-based J Mohanraj, general secretary of Jebamani Janata Party, had filed as many as five applications with the CBI last year seeking details on various counts including action taken on his complaint relating to the TV expose. He had also asked for information on the constitution of Multi-disciplinary Management Authority (MDMA) to probe the Rajiv Gandhi assassination case and the officers who had been allegedly "globetrotting" to probe the case and the expenses involved in their foreign jaunts. The applicant sought details whether political leaders, including Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M Karunanidhi, Janata Party president Subramanian Swamy and Subbulakshmi Jagadeesan of the DMK, had been examined by the CBI in the case. The Chief Public Information officer of CBI refused to provide information on the ground that the disclosure "would impede the process of investigation or apprehension or prosecution of offenders". The agency said the matter on investigation being conducted by MDMA was before a TADA court in Chennai which was holding 'in camera' proceedings. However, the panel held that the agency had refused the information on "invalid grounds" and directed it to examine the matter afresh. "... He (CPIO) has failed to show how providing the information sought in the application on Rajiv Gandhi Assassination will impede the process of investigation," the CIC said. The Commission also asked the CBI Director to "immediately initiate a process of restructuring the organisation (on) processing RTI applications to make it user-friendly within a specific time frame."
