    Information denied under 8(1)(d)

    I had sought details of loan and copies of agreement entered with World Bank, JICA etc. of IT Expressway Chennai (created in partnership with Govt of TN) However the PIO has replied that they have moved out of world bank loan and taken loan from other banks details of which cannot be disclosed under 8(1) d of RTI Act citing "commercial confidence". However the IT Expressway is a public limited company having entered into agreement with Govt of TN and others for developing and maintaining a particular stretch of road. Kindly help me frame a good first appeal. Sent from my SM-J510FN using RTI INDIA mobile app
  3. I had been taken to govt hospital to get report before being lodged in jail in a false case. Now my RTI to the govt hospital seeking copy of Accident Report/OP Ticket/Medical Examination report has been replied stating no such report available in my name on the date of occurance of the said incident. But I was lodged in prison only after submitting the report given by hospital to prison authorities. Now I would like to inspect the records available with the govt hospital on that day from 8 pm to 12 am. Can I go for first appeal seeking clarification as incorrect information is furnished and a report has been given by the hospital ? What Are Grounds clauses to be included? I have not asked for inspection in the original RTI. Now can I request inspection in the first appeal or should i file a new RTI for that?

    Treasury office Krishnagiri

    Dear Sir, I am from Bangalore. I am JBC. Madam Kavinayan is helping me write on my behalf as I am not so well versed using computer. I went to provide the death certificate to the Taluk Treasury office in Krishnagiri, Tamil Nadu in the last week of August after my sister's demise on August 10th 2018. We made an initial visit on August 17th to know the documents that to be submitted. My sister was working in a Govt School and Rtd as a Head Mistress and was a pensioner. We requested for freeze the pension a day after the death (one of our relatives personally went to Treasury office and informed) and also I being the sole nominee for my sister's account requested for the final rituals amount of 50,000/- to my account and also the pending pension and gave all the required papers. My sister was a State Govt Employee and an amount for final rights is given by the TN Govt we were told by the teacher's association. I am a resident of Bangalore, Karnataka and I was told that any MICR outside Tamil Nadu will not be agreed as adding a new MICR is not a process that is followed by our esteemed treasury office, Krishnagiri TN, which was a surprise to us. NEFT is all over India but to our surprise we were told that this department functions differently. When I am not a resident of Tamil Nadu how can I get a bank account there as I do not have a permanent address in that state or district. I am ajoin account holder in one of the Co Operative bank accounts in Krishnagiri along with my sister but they told me MICR of LVB, or Indian Bank or Karur Vysya Bank will be acceptable. With great difficulty we opened a bank account in Lakshmi Vilas Bank (LVB)in Krishnagiri, TN as Treasury office systems showed LVB was an acceptable bank and since I had an account in LVB Bangalore I requested to have a branch account in Krishnagiri and they agreed and opened a new account in LVB Krishnagiri, TN.and I have submitted the documents for the second time to the treasury office. Now, I am told that LVB is also not acceptable and only Indian Bank Tamil Nadu branches will be permitted and I have to open a bank account in Indian bank or the process will not be proceeded from Krishnagiri to Chennai. We spoke to so many people who have received this amount in my late sister's teacher's community, everyone has received even to Lakshmi Vilas Bank. Why is that I am being dragged up and down at this age of 82? If the MICR is not added intheir system is it not as easy as adding it Why is that Krishnagiri treasury office returning the documents to us without further processing to Chennai? Please let me know who to approach I have already traveled 3 times for this and I have an ill health and unable to go up and down for this over and again and I am 82. Who should I contact for this? The treasury office of Krishnagiri simply say they cannot process if is not Indian Bank or Karur Vysya bank of Tamil nadu and they cannot do NEFT to any other banks as NEFT registering is not a process that they follow and they do not encourage people to come up with new MICRs. I told then I will approach Collector or RTI, they said yes at this age be prepared to run and we will ensure you will run up and down. They also tell me, that send it by register post as we are sure we will not process it and you can go to a lawyer or a District Collector and have these documents for legal purposes or we will also see what RTI can do to us. Are they saying that do what ever I will not process your document and be prepared to pay for legal or run to Collector's offices? Please help me! Who should I contact is there an email ID or phone number. Thanks in advance, JBC

    RTI on FIR in Police Station

    I have been falsely implicated in a case by police for removing illegal banners. They have remanded me under Sec506(II) Attempt to murder on complaint from ruling party men. Though the FIR is available online I want copy of other documents like complaint letter, confession letter in which they have forcibly made me sign. I also want the CCTV footage of the police station at that particular date and time. I have already filed RTI in this regard and have had the information denied under Article 8 1 (h) saying the case is under investigation. Is this correct? Will First appeal be of any help?

  9. Hello, Please find attached a copy of an RTI application I had sent to the Teacher in Charge of the college where I work as a teaching stuff. The undergraduate college is in West Bengal and all its stuff receive salary from the government (but it is not a Govt. College). The college also receives grants from the government (both State and Central). This type of college is often referred to as a 'Govt. Sponsored College'. I would remain much obliged if someone were to confirm if this format is still valid today. My queries to the forum: 1. The college does not have an RTI Cell. If I use a ten rupee value Indian Postal Order, how would I fill the order? What should I write in the sections 'PAY TO ...' and 'AT THE POST OFFICE AT' (the post office where I got the postal order from or the post office which will receive my application?). 2. While the court fee stamp is affixed to the RTI application, it may be difficult to do the same with the postal order. Is it possible for the other party to make false claims that the application was invalid because it did not come with a postal order? I am going to send by registered post. 3. I do not expect a reply to my application from the college. In which case, who should I send my first appeal to? The college comes under the Department / Directorate of Higher Education and is affiliated to the West Bengal State University. Thank you!
  10. I raised RTI to sports development authority of India on January 31st 2018 but still i didn't get any response, also i submitted first appeals, stilk same. Nothing happened via online portal. Do anyone have any idea what should i do next or i need to be silent until they reply?
  11. 1. The PIO has not provide information against point no. xx, xx etc. of the RTI application. 2. The PIO has declined information against point no. xx of the RTI application by merely quoting the exemption to information under section 8(1)(h) / 8(1)(j) of the RTI Act, 2005 without giving meaningful justification for arriving at that reason for denial. This is against letter and spirit of RTI Act. Please find the following persuasive precedents wherein the concerned authorities have ruled that merely quoting the bare clause of the Act does not imply that the reasons have been given: Decisions of CIC [Central Information Commission]: A] CIC/OK/A/2006/00163 dated 7 July, 2006: B] CIC/SG/A/2011/003607/17371 dated 10-03-2012: C] CIC/BS/A/2013/000681/4968 dated 24-04- 2014: COURT JUDGMENTS: D] Hon’ble HIGH COURT OF DELHI in W.

State of Kerala AIR 1970 Ker 65: F] Judgment of HON’BLE HIGH COURT OF DELHI in WP© No. 3114/2007 decided on 03.12.2007 : 3. Also, please find the following Case Laws / Persuasive Precedents wherein the concerned authorities have ruled disclosure of information pertaining to police investigation, Police Diary / Daily Diary / Case Diary: A] IN THE HIGH COURT OF DELHI AT NEW DELHI in W.P.© 12428/2009, DEPUTY COMMISSIONER OF POLICE ….. Petitioner versus D.K.SHARMA ….. Respondent In person. B] Smt. Jagvinder Kaur v/s. PIO,Senior Superintendent of Police, Bathinda: Following is the relevant excerpt from the Decision of the Hon’ble Punjab State Information Commission: C] Sri Virag R. Dhulia Versus (i) PIO & lnspector of Police, Mahadevapur Police Station, Bangalore (ii) FAA & Deputy police Commissioner, DCP East Zone, Ulsoor Police Station, Bangalore Following is the relevant excerpt from the Decision of the Hon’ble Karnataka State Information Commission: 4. Thus, non-disclosure of such information would be against the letter and spirit of the objectives to be achieved vide the enactment of the preamble of the Right to Information Act, 2005, which lays down as follows (emphasis added): Furthermore, with due respect to the police inspectors who are investigating these said incidents, it needs to be acknowledged that, in a democracy, it is the citizens who are the ultimate inspectors over and above their (police inspector's) work, and which is evident from the letter and spirit of section 2(j)(i) of the RTI Act, 2005, which lays down as follows:

    False Statement by FAA

    Respected Members, The FAA had submitted in written before SIC, that he had invited applicant for hearing and order passed in that hearing also. So, I want to know what can applicant do in this case. Thank You Sent from my Redmi Note 4 using RTI INDIA mobile app
  15. In the RTI Act-2005 no provision exists for any action against for not performing assigned quasi-judicial responsibility. He goes scot free. This additional duty performance must be getting recorded in his/her ACR/APAR by his / her superior officers. Now if he/she contravenes the provisions of RTI Act-2005. (1) why such poor performance should not get reflection in the ACR/APAR. (2) How to ensure his/her superior officers take cognizance of such poor performance? If this is done, the FAA would be compelled to fall in line with the provisions of RTI Act-2005
  16. I asked PMC Engineer for some information. On RTI application, I clearly mentioned that I require reply by registered post. I did not receive any reply for a month. I filed first appeal and today had the hearing in PMC office. The Appeal officer seemed to be a good friend of the PIO. I told the appeal officer that I did not receive any communication from PIO. To which, PIO said that wrt my RTI application, he replied back (by normal post) that I need to pay some amount for photocopying documents. Fine. But this reply never reached me. They just made some entry in their outward reply that it was sent. No postal proof. When I asked the appeal officer, he said it is not required that the PIO replies by registered post. I feel this is not right. Appeal officer also said I could appeal to SIC about this. So I need your opinion, can I appeal against the PIO for not sending communication through registered post? Any chances PIO will be punished? (I have no enemity with the PIO, but I know the PMC officials are extremely careless. That’s why I want to take this step).

  19. Case Brief: 498A FIR is filed against applicant. He gave statements at Police station and charge-sheet is pending since FIR is stayed by State HC Applicant filed RTI seeking 498A FIR copy, his own submitted statements, and other 2-3 more info. PIO / Police station asked permission from complainant (3rd party who filed FIR) and subsequently 3rd Party wrote a letter and instructed to PIO that no information should give given PIO denied to give information. subsequently applicant approached to FAA, but FAA also denied to give such info saying PIO is right.

  20. I filed an RTI Application with a local Gujarat State University seeking details about number of CCTV cameras installed and the total expenditure on CCTV cameras in the past financial year. Reply from PIO was "University feels that divulgence of any information with regard to security may jeopardise its safety and security, hence we are unable to provide the information sought." Not much elaboration and no reference to the RTI Act. Also this reply was sent more than 70 days after receiving the RTI Application. I have 3 questions - 1. Can I still file First Appeal though more than 60days have passed since PIO receiving original RTI application? 2. What do I state in the first appeal? What grounds do I take? 3. Are there decisions which say that financial expenditure information must be disclosed even if it relates to security? Please help.
  21. Hello, Attached is my draft of first appeal that I need to send. Request you to please cross verify the same and suggest modifications, if any. Format for the same was downloaded from this website itself. I would also like to draw your attention to point number 13 and suggest if it is at all needed considering that this application is concerned with a state department. First Appellate Authority Name: Not Available. Neither was it mentioned in the RTI reply I received Background: I filed an RTI application in February this year asking for marks and answer sheet copies. However the information was then delayed saying that such information cannot be provided till completion of examination process and the same will be provided later without requiring any fresh RTI application. I quote below the exact reply (last paragraph) below Final result was declared on 12th May, 2015. So it is more than 30 days today and there is no communication from the RTI authority even asking for the cost of photocopies. Please verify the application and suggest. Thanks in advance. Attached is the draft of first appeal. Draft-FIRST_APPEAL.doc
  22. Hello, I sent RTI to GGSIP University in Sep 2014 for abnormal delay of my PhD result declaration (almost 3 years). I have just now received reply but incomplete and not to the point. They have tried to skip many question/facts requested. I can write to First Appellate Authority (in my case Registrar). What is the Procedure, Fee ? Appeal to Ist Appellate shopuld be made in one month from date of receipt of Reply by me or date written on Reply from PIO. I am now abroad. Can I write from abroad and courier from here. Another option suggested by one forum member GLN Prasad was to Consulmer court. My experience with District consumer court is bad. They took 5 years to decide the simple case. Can I approach directly to National Consumer Court as suggested by some member.
  23. Sirs, I had applied to the Block Land & Land Reforms Officer, Nalhati - I, Dist. Birbhum, W.B. & SAPIO asking for certain information regarding my ancestral land holding at Nalhati. The said SAPIO failed to give satisfactory information. So a First Appeal was lodged with the District Land & Land Reforms Officer (DL & LRO), Birbhum and First Appellate Authority.(FAA). Hearing took place on 29-05-2014(yesterday). The first question that the FAA asked was the reason for which I am seeking the information. When I pointed out to him that providing reason for seeking information is beyond the scope of the RTI Act, 2005, the FAA became angry and said that he was dismissing the case for not giving the reason for seeking the information. Friends, please advise, what steps should I take now. Regards. R Sinha

  25. Hi friends, My second appeals were not disposed of by DCP east for 3-4 months. I searched for some CIC 2013 decisions where CIC remanded back appeals to FAA because FAA had not passed any orders. Here are some: 1. CIC/SS/A/2012/002245 dated 16.01.2013 2. CIC/SS/A/2012/002856 dated 03.05.2013 3. CIC/SS/A/2012/003263 dated 18.02.2013 4. CIC/SS/A/2012/003641 dated 15.01.2013 5. CIC/SS/A/2012/000118 dated 26.03.2013 6. CIC/SS/A/2013/000738/VS/05839 dated 15.01.2014 7. CIC/SS/A/2012/001041 dated 11.09.2013 8. CIC/SS/A/2013/001281 dated 19.09.2013 9. CIC/SS/A/2013/002842/VS/05832 dated 19.09.2013 10. CIC/SS/C/2013/900013 dated 23.04.2013 I am sure, DCP-east has not been disposing second appeal wilfully. There must have been many more applicants who must have given up and did not even consider filing second appeal knowing the information would be of no use if got after one year. What can we do to stop such behavior? For my appeal, I will go to CIC, but CIC does not take notice of such irregularities. I am thinking of filing an RTI to get list of all first appeals which were not disposed off within 30 days. Please help me frame questions. Please furnish the list of all the first appeals received by the office of DCP-east since Jan 01, 2012 in tabular form with following information for each appeal. Title. Date of receipt. Date of Order Reason for not disposing within 30 days (if not disposed within 30 days as is mandatory per RTI ACT) Whether disposed within 45 days or not. [*]On which dates were the first appeals disposed for the appeals remanded back by CIC. (with the list as produced above) 1. How to make sure that correct information is given by police for above queries. 2. Can third person also complain to CIC about non-disposal of first appeals, of other persons, in time with data received from above RTI application?3. Can a complaint be made to public authority about not doing the duty as per service rule? Do they take such complaints seriously? 4. Will it help if may activists file RTI-application/complaints for above information? May serve as example? 5. Any other remedy? thoughts? 6. Icing on cake would be if I have to go for first appeal for this RTI, and even that appeal is not disposed by DCP-east:).
