akhilesh yadav posted a topic in RTI in MediaThe internal inquiry into the unauthorised stay of Ruby Choudhary - a woman posing as a civil services trainee - in the Mussoorie-based Lal Bahadur Shastri National Academy of Administration seems to be moving at a snail's pace. Three months after the incident came to light, the IAS academy is yet to take any action against a senior officer and other staff members who provided patronage to the fake lady probationer. The Lal Bahadur Shastri National Academy of Administration started its internal inquiry in March this year. In a RTI reply sent to Mail Today on June 22, the IAS academy's public information officer Satyabeer Singh said, "The inquiry is still going on.

Good governance cannot happen just like that. Where indiscipline, dishonesty and lethargy are ruling the roost, there can be no governance at all. People in government do not perform because they are not questioned by anybody. Top officers have to review the work of subordinates. If they are also lethargic, subordinates feel they need not work. The right of people’s access to information assumes significance in this backdrop and the proviso in Section 8 comes to rescue of the people. A vibrant citizen has to ask for information for the public purpose. It is not meant to seek personal information or to settle individual grievance. It may not be wrong to seek redressal of a grievance, but it is not right even. System of the governance within it should include the mechanism to redress grievance of the people. In the absence of an effective mechanism to solve the day to day problems of the people or the problems created by negligent or irresponsible functioning of the public employees, the citizen is compelled to seek information about ‘action taken’ on the petition he made about a problem. The RTI should be used for improving the governance and to make the government, department and MLAs or MPs accountable. Read at: RTI Works Where Legislature Fails - The Hans India
