shrivar1212 posted a question in Ask for RTI SupportHI, I had filed a complaint with Dy. Registrar for gross violations in our society, even the redevelopment was carried out by blatantly ignoring Govt. Directives. In my letter I had exposed various deficiencies in the working of the society, and demanded inquiry under section 83 but no action was taken by Dy. Registrar. The complaint was filed on January 11, 2019. No Response till date. On 26th Feb, I escalated the matter to District Deputy Registrar, and filed the complaint who on March 7 issued an order directing Dy. Registrar of co-op societies to conduct an inquiry under section 83, but till date nothing has been done. I have copy of the order. I want to file an RTI in the office of District Deputy Registrar seeking information on the action taken on order issued by them to Dy. Registrar, I want to draft the application in most effective manner and probably in strong legal words. I want to seek following information: Status of the order dated ________ reference no _______ issued by them. The procedure/file noting/officer responsible to oversee the implementation of the order issued by District Dy. Registrar The procedure in District Dy. Registrar's office after issuing the order to Dy. Registrar to take action.

Registrar's office after issuing the order, if YES, what is procedure for follow up? If NO reasons for lack of procedure Timeframe for Dy Registrar to take action on order Can you please help me draft the RTI on above points in clear and concise manner so that it won't be rejected on flimsy grounds.

ispy posted a question in Ask for RTI SupportRecently I found the indiapost.nic.in website where you can supposedly apply for electronic posts etc. i.e; you can give text and they will print and send it to the specified address. But after registering account I'm unable to login. No error message is shown. I'm getting an error message when I type invalid user id or password, but I get no error when I use correct password and username, just the main page is shown as if nothing happened. Also there is the issue of https://www.epostoffice.gov.in/ on which any links don't work. Is this an attempt to stop Activists from filing RTIs online (To State govt)? Is anyone else able to file RTIs or send ePosts online?
Dear friends, I feel some more emphasis should be given on how to draft the Application requesting 'information' from the Public Authority, under RTI Act. A poorly drafted or technically defective Application is likely to defeat the very purpose - or at least delay it. It is true that there can be no generic proforma because circumstances would widely differ in individual case. However some guidelines can be be compiled, because a well drafted Application is half the job done. I feel in many cases the request for information is not clear enough or the CPIO/PIO take advantage of technical/procedural loopholes. I try to start the list: (1) 'Information' is distinct from 'Question', though a slight manipulation of language can turn the each into the other. RTI Act cover 'Information' but not 'Questions' or 'Opinions'. For example: Question: Whether is true that an amount of Rs. $$$ received under scheme XXX was fraudelently disbursed to some individuals. Information: Please provide me a list of all beneficiaries, along with the amount disbursed to each of them, of the funds received under scheme XXX. (2) Information should exist in some material form (on file, computer, etc) in the possession/control of Public Authority. It is in the interest of speedy response, applicant should indicate the probable holder of the information (concerned department/section/officer) in case of a large organisation. (3) There may be cases where the Public Authority do not maintain the information properly, though it is supposed to do so. For example, (a) total number of requests received (b) requests accepted for fulfilling the required criteria © reasons for rejecting the remaining requests. Such things generally happen in organisation engaged in large public dealings (for example a bank accepting or rejecting loan applications). (4) It may not be a good idea to request for unnecessarily volumenous information just because one can do so. However, this should not defeat the purpose of seeking information. (5) When that nature of information required or possible holder of information is not clear, inspection of records may be resorted to, to exactly identify what is required. (6) One should be prepared that not all CPIO/PIO would be willing to help and properly guide the applicant in obtaining the information, even though it is his/her duty. A typical officer in a govt. office (CPIO/PIO) will view a new application under RTI Act as an additional burden (for which he will not get any extra pay). As a result, he/she will try to discourage the applicant from filing the application (like the Police discourage filing of FIR), because it will add to his/her (already excess) 'workload' (?). So, be ready to insist on your right to file application under RTI Act. Threat to quote his/her name if refuse to receive the application. (7) One should not go by oral conversations that can not be proved. Under RTI Act, let everything be in writing. Govt. official is very expert in misleading you when he can not be held responsible, but when his name and handwriting is involved, he won't dare to lie. This is as true about CPIO/PIO as well. OK, let us improve this list together. N.K.Saini
kaivalyatech posted a question in Ask for RTI SupportDear Forum members, We are a small manufacturing unit (Private Limited co.) currently employing around 20 people. Prior to June 2007, our staff strength had been around a maximum of 16. In May 2007 and June 2007, our strength rose to 18 and then 21 and consequently we applied for coverage under the EPF act from the said month (done voluntarily). However, to our surprise, we received a coverage letter from the EPFO stating that we are liable to pay contributions from May 2006. No explanations were given, nor any information in addition to what was provided by us in our application sought from us prior to this. Now obviously, the liability being imposed on us is beyond our capacity and furthermore seems to be without any basis. Can I, either as an individual or as the Managing Director of the Company, file a request under the RTI Act requesting for information regarding the basis for coverage from May 2006 rather than June 2007 as requested by us? Can anybody help me draft a query? Thanks and regards, Deepak
