jai bajrangbali posted a question in Ask for RTI SupportDear Friends, Greeting for the day!! Since one year I am complaining against the illegal construction of a godown and the office with encroachment on my land to the Municipal Corporation and the Mayor to take measure step and action. The several application to The Mayor, The commissioner of Municipal Corporation, The ward Councillor, The FIR to the local police station did not turn up fruitful. The RTI report done says that the there is no LU CC and building plan sanctioned on the construction. At last I had sent a notice to the Commissioner of the Municipal Corporation with CC copy to all mentioned above to take measure step, which again seem to be unheard. Hence, request me to guide and help what measure step can I take, should I write RTI application addressed to the PIO of the office where matter is pending? or there is any other way to get answer of my pending unresolved work. Regards, Amit
File notifying slum on Moti Dongor missing Reported by Govind Kamat Maad in timesofindia.indiatimes.com on August 25,2012 File notifying slum on Moti Dongor missing - The Times of India MARGAO: While the South Goa district administration is bracing up to clear the Moti Dongor area of illegal encroachments as per the recent assurance given by the government to the high court of Bombay at Goa, it has now come to light that the state administration has been unable to trace the file pertaining to the 1985 notification declaring a certain area atop Monte hill as slum area under Slum Areas (Improvement and Clearance) Act, 1956. This was revealed in a reply given the deputy collector (revenue) of the South Goa collectorate to an RTI query filed by Aquem comunidade shareholder Savio Correia. Correia had sought inspection of the relevant file under RTI Act with the North Goa collector by application dated June 11. Since the file was not available at the North Goa collectorate and as the matter pertained to the South Goa district, the application was transferred to the South Goa collectorate. In a reply dated August 17, deputy collector (revenue) South Goa wrote to Correia informing that the file "is not available". "From the RTI replies given to me, it appears that the file has gone missing. The contents of the file are important as they would indicate the boundaries/plan of the notified slum area, besides notings and correspondence," Correia said. Records accessed by TOI reveal that then collector of Goa, Shakti Sinha, had issued a notification dated October 4, 1985, notifying a certain 7,000 sq m at Monte Hill, Tolsanzor, as "slum area" under Slum Areas (Improvement and Clearance) Act 1956. Sinha had issued the notification in exercise of powers vested in him under Section 3 of the Slum Areas (Improvement and Clearance) Act, 1956, on the grounds that hutments/buildings in the specified area "are not fit for human habitation and are detrimental to the safety, health and morals of the inhabitants". While the file pertaining to this notification has so far remained untraceable, a seemingly glaring discrepancy in the notification has also come to light. Though a substantial part of Moti Dongor belongs to the Aquem comunidade, the collector's notification specifying 7,000 sq m of land as slum area pertains to a property under chalta no. 40 of PT Sheet no. 228 which actually happens to be a private property measuring 558 sq m. As per Form D of the department of settlement and land records, the title holder of the said land is a private individual. BJP leader, Pandurang "Bhai" Naik, who has been persistently blaming the earlier Congressregime for allowing slums to proliferate in Margao, said the details pertaining to the notification were crucial as without that it would be difficult to ascertain the exact area which was then notified as slum area. "When the government intends to clear the area of all illegal structures, it is imperative that the area notified as slum area is properly identified. If that is done, 60 percent of the structures atop the hill beyond the notified area will have to go," Naik told TOI, while blaming Margao MLADigambar Kamat for using the slums as vote bank to further his political prospects. "Had the slum dwellers been rehabilitated immediately after the area was notified as the slums, Moti Dongor would not have achieved the notoriety that it has now got. From hardly a few houses in 1985 to over 550 now, and from less than 50 voters to nearly 2,000 now, one can see that the increase in slum dwellers has taken place by geometric proportion," Naik added. Kamat, who was a councillor representing Moti Dongor area in the Margao municipal council (MMC) when the slum area notification was issued, when contacted, said the rehabilitation plans failed largely owing to unavailability of adequate land for the purpose. "The government then was trying to identify land in the outskirts of the city, but as there was opposition from the locals, the acquisition of land could not happen. The state rehabilitation board had also tried to rehabilitate the slum dwellers in Moti Dongor itself. For some reasons it never happened. At that time there were some 200-300 houses which didn't have any sanitation facilities, water or electricity supply, and hence needed to be rehabilitated," the former chief minister told TOI. Moti Dongor area is known to be Kamat's vote bank. Infogrpahic October 4, 1985, notification demarcated 7,000 sq m at Monte Hill, Tolsanzor, as "slum area" under Slum Areas (Improvement and Clearance) Act 1956 Though substantial part of Moti Dongor belongs to Aquem comunidade, under chalta no. 40 of PT Sheet no. 228 demarcated land is private property measuring 558 sq m owned by an individual File pertaining to notification "not available" with South Goa collectorate
tsmurali1970 posted a question in Ask for RTI SupportHi, In chennai - Velachery, one of the prominent builders have encroached road apart from their plot and constructed buildings. In addition to they have also put a security gate in the middle of the dead-end road, otherwise would have been a public road. I want to know whom and How CMDA to be approached for knowing: 1. Whether building approval is given for the construction? 2. If any violation from builder, can road be reclaimed by CMDA intervention? 3. Whether the security gate put up without any permission on the road can be taken away? How RTI act can be effectively used to seek this information and clear the encroachments.
