Right to Information Appellate alleged that in a Medico-Legal case, the Doctor in the hospital had overwritten 'simple hurt' as 'Grievous hurt'. Because of this change, the appellate son was booked under 308 of IPC, a non-bailable offence. As it is a case of physical assault, nature of injury matters a lot, in deciding nature of crime & sentence. Appellant has questioned the credibility of the MLC because of this overwriting in it. On the basis of that overwriting in the MLC, investigation officer charged his son for causing grievous hurt. Making a plea that if doctors have different opinion, they should mention the same by issuing a new MLC instead of rewriting over MLC, the Appellate filed the RTI to know is there any guidelines for doctors in preparing and correcting the Medico Legal Reports. Despite several reminders, there was no reply to his RTI application. To know more about the RTI Act kindly visit our Right to Information Wiki.

US-based Indian doctor Kunal Saha, fighting a case of medical negligence in India over his wife's death, has moved a writ petition before the Calcutta High Court seeking action against the West Bengal Medical Council (WBMC) and its functionaries for their 'deliberate violation' of the Right to Information (RTI) Act, 2005. The petition filed on Jan 11 also named WBMC president Ashok Chowdhury, its registrar D.K. Ghosh as well as the West Bengal Information Commissioner, charging them with violating the act. Saha's wife Anuradha had died from alleged medical negligence during a trip to Kolkata in 1998. The WBMC acquitted all three doctors accused of medical negligence after an investigation, which Saha termed 'botched up' saying that the organisation had 'refused to provide any documents until now'. Since her death, Saha, an AIDS specialist, has been fighting legal battles in different courts, including the Supreme Court, against the three senior Kolkata doctors (Sukumar Mukherjee, Abani Roychowdhury and Baidyanath Halder) for their alleged wrongful treatment and against medical corruption in India. 'The Right to Information Act has ignited the battle for medical justice in West Bengal,' Saha told IANS over telephone from Columbus, Ohio, in the US. 'The WBMC has always shielded the errant doctors through sham 'investigation' behind closed doors. RTI Act has given ordinary people an extraordinary power to fight this corrupt practice by the medical council,' Saha said. 'While separate 'criminal' and 'compensation' cases are still pending before the Supreme Court against these doctors, the blatant violation of RTI Act by WBMC has been challenged this week before the Calcutta High Court,' Saha said. While Saha's appeal against the WBMC final order is pending before the apex court, he has sought all documents/materials related to the investigation of his complaint by virtue of the RTI. He said he had moved the high court because the WBMC remained non-responsive to his demand for documents. Besides the 'criminal' case against the three doctors, a 'civil' appeal for Rs.1.43 billion (Rs.777 million plus 12 percent interest since 1998) are pending in the Supreme Court. Saha in the course of his legal battle has formed an organisation called People for Better Treatment (PBT) after teaming up with other aggrieved patients in India.

Hi! I am interested in using RTI to make our government more transparent and accountable. I have personally filed two RTIs which resulted in vague replies but some action as well. I believe that if we, the people of India join together and ASK our government to be honest and efficient, then it IS possible. I am happy to help with discussions on RTIs. I am a doctor and any members with a need for information from medical establishements are welcome to discuss their RTI application with me. Thanks.
NEW DELHI: The Central Information Commission (CIC) has imposed a fine of Rs 13,000 on a doctor of a MCD hospital for delay in providing information on an RTI application. Chief Information Commissioner Wajahat Habibullah penalised Dr Madhu Jain, Public Information Officer (PIO) of Hindu Rao Hospital with the amount holding her liable for delay of 52 days in disclosing information sought by Navin Neeraj and Subroto Roy. Neeraj and Roy, both doctors at the hospital, had filed a RTI application on December 30, 2005 seeking certain information over a file related to harassment cases reported by junior officers of the health department of the Municipal Corporation of Delhi. Unsatisfied at the partial response, an appeal was filed before the CIC which in its order on February 2, asked for a written explanation from the Medical Superintendent of (MS) the hospital. The Commission, relying on the explanation put forth by the MS, found Jain responsible for delay in providing the information and imposed the fine amount.
