As reported at thehindu.com on November 14, 2010 The Central Information Commission has issued summons to Organising Committee of the Commonwealth Games, asking it to submit all documents related to alleged discrepancies in the ticketing, Queen’s Baton Relay and the conduct of the Games. The transparency watchdog also directed Indian Olympic Association to present all records pertaining to election of Suresh Kalmadi as its Chairperson. Issuing a common order to the IOA and the OC, Information Commissioner M.L. Sharma asked the Central Public Information Officer of both the bodies to “appear in person” on November 16 and present their case during the hearing of complaints and appeals against the bodies. The Commission also directed the officials to bring along all the officials whose help they have taken while processing of the RTI applications received in this regard. “In case of your non-appearance or that of the officer whose assistance has been taken under section 5(4) of the RTI Act, the matter will be heard and decided on the basis of the record,” the notice said. The Commission also warned the sports bodies that “no adjournment” will be given “in any circumstances” and they should provide their comments two days before the date of hearing. The cases relates to complaints received by the transparency panel from S.C. Agrawal against the non-disclosure of information by the OC about the alleged corruption issues regarding the Queen Baton’s Relay held in London last as part of Commonwealth Games and issues in passes and ticketing which allegedly resulted in poor attendance at the venues. He has also asked Organising Committee the details of election of Suresh Kalmadi as its Chairman. During the Queen’s Baton Relay in London, several alleged financial discrepancies surfaced when British authorities referred to the Indian High Commission a matter regarding A.M. Films, a little-known London-based company, to which a huge sum of money was transferred through the Royal Bank of Scotland. The Enforcement Directorate has registered a case under Foreign Exchange Management Act (FEMA) in this regard and questioned suspended Joint Director General T.S. Darbari, a close aide of OC chairman Suresh Kalmadi, and Deputy Director General Sanjay Mohindroo in this regard. The Organising Committee had suspended Mr. Darbari, Mr. Mohindroo and Joint Director General (Accounts and Finance) M. Jaychandran on August 5 for their alleged role in irregularities in the Queen’s Baton Relay in London.
Atul Patankar posted a topic in RTI in MediaAs reported at ndtv.com on August 20, 2010 New Delhi: An RTI query to know who was the coach and manager of the wrestling team that won the bronze medal at Beijing Olympics has provided contradictory replies, prompting authorities concerned to press for the correct information. The controversy concerns the identity of the coach and manager of the bronze-medal winning wrestling team at the Beijing Olympics in 2008 as sought by an RTI applicant. The reply, however, had contradictory information as government records and those of the Indian Olympic Association vary. In the RTI reply, Education Directorate of Delhi Government has said DE (Sports) Satpal and Additional DE (Sports) Ramphal went as wrestling coaches to Beijing. Whereas, according to IOA, Piara Ram Sondhi was the coach and Kartar Singh was the manager. Irked by the contradictory information provided by two sports bodies, Information Commissioner Shailesh Gandhi directed the Education Directorate to look at the records based on which this information was provided. "Confirm with the IOA about the names of the coach and the manager who had gone with the wrestling team to the Beijing Olympics. It is indeed a sad comment that trying to get information about the officials who go with the national team leads to such contradictory results," he said. The case relates to an RTI application filed by Ashok Bhasin of the The Delhi Sportsmen Association in which he had sought to know from Education Directorate the list of players, officials, coaches in international events like Olympic Games, Asian Games, Commonwealth Games and World Championships for the last three years. "Information obtained from IOA and from the Directorate of Education's sport branch show different coaches and managers as having gone with the wrestling team to the Beijing Olympics," the Commission noted. Bhasin claimed although Ramphal had gone as wrestling coach on behalf of the Delhi Government, the entire credit and rewards as coach for the bronze medal won by Sushil Kumar was given to Satpal.

sidmis posted a topic in RTI in MediaCommonwealth Games committee approaches HC against Centre as reported by Zee News New Delhi, Dec 09: The organising committee for 2010 Commonwealth Games and the Centre are at loggerheads in the Delhi High Court as the panel has challenged the government's decision of declaring it a public authority, liable to disclose information under Right to Information Act. The committee, which is charged with responsibility to conduct Commonwealth Games, has contended that it is an independent and autonomous body, not liable to reveal information under RTI Act. "Petitioner Society (the committee) does not fulfill the criteria of being declared a State under Article 12 of the Constitution and hence it could not be declared a Public Authority under the RTI Act," the organising committee pleaded before Justice G S Sistani. "It does not fulfill the criteria of being declared a State under Article 12 of the Constitution and hence it could not be declared a Public Authority under the RTI Act," it said. Additional Solicitor General P P Malhotra, however, said that almost whole budgetary support to the project is provided by the government and the Committee cannot take the plea that it is an independent body. "The Centre is providing not only substantial upfront funds but also has undertaken to meet the shortfall between its revenue and expenditure," Malhotra said. "The audit report of the body for the year 2005-06 shows that out of total receipt of Rs 52.72 crore, it received Rs 52.58 crore from government sources. This proves that the petitioner is receiving almost its entire funding from government sources," he said while justifying the government's decision.
