I am working as an Inspector in Income Tax department. It is tough being honest in a govt. organisation and so I have faced a lot of troubles and have earned enmity of many vested interests. But I am happy since none has been able to put me off from my chosen path. I treat my job as service to the nation and consider myself a servant of the public. This RTI Act has helped me many times to get my own as well as other's works done at lightening speed and without any sort of corruption. We ensure that any RTI application our office receives is replied promptly, within 7 days in most cases. This is our humble contribution toward this weapon of mass empowerment. My kudos to all people here using RTI Act for claiming our rights and exposing the corrupts. And my humble submission: All govt. servants are not corrupt or rude, there are many well mannered, upright and energetic employees, but they lack power, they are hapless before their higher authorities, against the vested interests of politicians, businessmen, media and even general public also. So, let's keep space in a small fraction of our heart for these silent voices also that are constantly suffering at the hands of many a vested interest. Let there be light!
Can a government servant facing disciplinary proceedings ask for files relevant to his case through RTI if the same files can be accessed by any one from public. If the files are denied to him by the Disciplinary authority without giving any reply, what should be the procedure to be followed?
mauryavip posted a topic in RTI in MediaAn RTI application filed by a government servant on an official letter head cannot be rejected merely on the ground that it has been filed by him in an official capacity, the CIC has held. Even assuming that a Government servant uses the letter head of the office for seeking information...Pays fee from out of his personal funds, an application submitted under such circumstances cannot be rejected on the ground that the application has been filed not by a citizen but by a Government servant in official capacity," full Bench of the Commission has said. Chief Commissioner of Income Tax in Ahmedabad, J D Sahay, had applied for empanelment to the post of member Central Board of Direct Taxes twice in the year 2006. But on both the occasions, her candidature was turned down. She filed two RTI applications next year, seeking information which could reveal the reasons for her non-selection. The Department of Revenue in their written submissions claimed that Sahay made all the communications relating to her case in her official capacity as Chief Commissioner of Income Tax on the official letter head of the department.
