Bhrashtabhanjan posted a question in Ask for RTI SupportI am an Engineer by qualification & a Contractor by profession. Till now I have carried out various types of contract works with various departments such as Indian Navy, Coast Guard, Railways, DRDOs, Refineries, IOCL, HPCL etc. with sincere efforts for carrying out works with utmost sincerity, honesty, quality and within given time frame. As I am work centric than avoider so never resorted to pay bribes to these departments and hence was never liked by the corrupt (more than 90% exists in all departments) officials and those were mostly harassing even without any reason. Hence neither opted for repeat work order nor participated for another tender. I mostly preferred to quit these corrupt departments in search of NON CORRUPTS. But till to date I have totally failed to find a single one! Anyway, now I am encountering with IOCL which is proving to be one of the most corrupt! Here after successful completion of Work Order and submitting my bills for final payments, with one or other reasons since last two years these corrupts are either losing submitted bills or even not replying to any email or letter and so I have not been able to get my payments! As I have not got the payments, I have close down my business also and now have to run behind these corrupts for getting payments!! But not yet succeeded. So to bring them at some legal point now I have to resort and opt for RTI. So I request to the forum/volunteers for any help on how to use RTI clause as I am new to this legal channel. I am ready to share my details without any reservation with anybody who desires to help me out in this regard.
betterlife posted a topic in Discussions on RTIYou will perhaps not believe it but recently Delhi High Court has imposed fine of Rs. 22,500/= on CPIO in CVC for 90 days delay in providing the information to an applicant under RTI Act. Read the judgement. In addition to the above, CVC as respondent, has been ordered to pay Rs. 30,000/= as compensation to the petitioner who had to approach the High Court to seek justice against the delay in providing information by CVC. High Court has imposed the fine itself as it agreed with the petitioner that if the matter again goes to the CIC only for the purpose of determining what should be the penalty and the compensation payble by the CVC, it would needlessly delay the matter further. This is a very interesting case. By reading the judgement you will see how IOCL, CVO, CVC and unintentionally CIC have acted chor-chor mausere bhai.
Atul Patankar posted a topic in RTI in MediaAs reported at timesofindia.indiatimes.com on 21 June 2009 NEW DELHI: Cash-rich public sector oil company Indian Oil has overcharged an RTI applicant and spent a sum of Rs 17,521 to unsuccessfully defend its stand while it could have resolved the matter for a meagre Rs 102. The case pertains to an RTI applicant, Rajesh Madhok, who asked for some information from Indian Oil Corporation Limited (IOCL), Chandigarh. The PIO of the oil company asked Madhok to pay Rs 10 per page for the 51-page information against the stipulated norm of Rs two per page under the RTI Act, which was challenged by him in the Central Information Commission. In an order of April 2009, the CIC asked the IOC to provide the information free of cost to Madhok after the two sides explained their sides of the story. To attend the CIC hearing, the IOC had deputed two senior officials-- DGM (Retail Sales), Chief Manager (LPG sales) of IOC -- along with the Law officer to Delhi from Chandigarh on a flight and train respectively, which incurred an expenditure of Rs 17,521. "I got the travel expenditure of these IOC officials after I submitted an RTI application to the oil company," Hyderabad-based RTI activist CJ Karira said.
