  4. Sir? A convict prisoner asks for copies of certain records including judgment under Rti to prefer appeal. the application is received through the prison where he is serving his sentence. Out of the records requested a copy of judgment has already been furnished to him on the date of judgment. My question is whether copy charges should be collected from the applicant in this case or should he be treated as BPL and what about the judgement ? Interestingly applicant has affixed court fee of 10 on the application.

  6. CIC to visit Tihar, meet War Room Leak accused AS REPORTED by Mohit Sharma, July 07, 2008, Express India New Delhi, July 6 Chief Information Commissioner Wajahad Habibbullah will be visiting the Tihar Jail next week. The reason: Intelligence Bureau's denial to reply a Right To Information (RTI) query by two accused in the Navy War Room Leak case. The two are currently lodged in the jail, having been booked under the Official Secrets Act. According to sources in the jail, the matter came to light when the officers — Ravi Shankaran and Vijender Rana — filed the RTI application last month, seeking to know the basis of their arrest and the cases against them. The jail officials said after a month, they received a reply. “The Intelligence Bureau refused to present the documents,” an official said. “The applicants were reluctant to accept the reply given by the IB.” Following this, the two wrote to Habibbullah's office and it was decided last week that the CIC would visit Tihar. Confirming the visit, Habibbullah said: “A visit to Tihar Jail on July 16 is on our schedule. We have two to three matters, including the War Room Leak case pending for hearing. To avoid inconvenience to Tihar authorities in producing them before us, we have decided to pay a visit to the jail.” He said the two officers did indeed have queries about the Intelligence Bureau's denial. Tihar sources added that the CIC would be accompanied by a few officials of the Commission. Undertrials Shankaran and Rana are in jail number one. They, along with three other defence officers, were charged under the Officials Secret Act for allegedly entering into a conspiracy and “compromising” about 7,000 pages of defence information. The documents from the Naval war room and air defence headquarters had a direct bearing on national security. The CBI registered the case on March 20, 2006, following a reference from the Defence Ministry and a scrutiny of an inquiry conducted by the Indian Air Force.

  7. Thanks to babus, many land in jail for daring to use RTI Reported in Bihar Times Patna, (Bihar Times): The idea of Right to Information (RTI) may be too novel, romantic and even effective. But in Bihar bureaucrats have learnt the art to overcome it. They are implicating those who dare to seek information, in false and sometimes serious cases (such as rape) and putting them behind bars. There are innumerable cases of harassment at the hands of officials. For example, Shiv Prakash Rai, who is in mid-50s, was charged by a former district magistrate of Buxar, with demanding randhari tax (extortion money) from him. But can any person simply barged into the chamber of district magistrate to charge the amount? However, thanks to Paresh Saxena, the then Superintendent of Police of that district, he was released from the jail after 29 days. Rai's crime was that he, under the Right To Information, dared to ask the details of beneficiaries under Indira Awas Yojana. Purushottam Prasad of Nalanda district, who demanded details of land reforms, was implicated in the false case of stealing kerosene drums. Retired army personnel, Chandradeep Singh, was even more unlucky. He was charged with attempting to rape a woman in Maner. His crime was that he sought from the police the details of the murder of his son and daughter. Another person, Jaiprakash, who sought details of the construction of Chirayatand overbridge was charged with obstructing government servants in discharging duty and disrupting construction works. According to Parveen Amanullah, the co-ordinator of Bihar Right To Information Manch, the government officials had lodged false cases against those who dared to expose corruption. She further said that officers should be sensitized as they are unable to accept the fact that people are now in a position to demand information from them. She regretted that no action had been taken against the officials who levelled false charges against RTI activists. The irony is that Parveen herself is the wife of top bureaucrat of the state––home secretary Afzal Amanullah––yet she echoes the helpelessness of the RTI activists.

  8. Even Rs80 crore fails to bail out Taloja jail as reported by Kiran Tare & Poornima Swaminathan, October 10, 2008 DNA State’s biggest central prison in Navi Mumbai hasn’t taken in a prisoner since September. After spending Rs80 crore, the biggest central jail in the state — at Taloja in Navi Mumbai - is in complete mess, thanks to faulty and substandard construction. The jail, with an intake capacity of 2,427 prisoners, was commissioned in March this year and was to provide much-needed relief to Maharashtra’s other overcrowded jails. With leaking roofs, inadequate power supply and no electric fencing around the jail wall boundaries, shifting of prisoners to the Taloja jail - spread over 27 acres - has been put on hold for now. Only one of the five barracks in the jail is presently operational, and houses around 480 inmates. The jail authorities have refused to take in any more prisoners till the construction faults are rectified. Confirming this, jail superintendent Dhyaneshwar Bangar said, “We have stopped admission of prisoners since September as we want repairs to be carried out immediately and the work to be completed.” “In the present condition, the Taloja jail will be a haven for prisoners. Its walls are so hollow that the prisoners can easily break it and escape. Besides, the drainage system at the jail is not proper. It can create problems of hygiene,” said an official of the home department. RR Patil, deputy chief minister, in charge of home portfolio, admitted that there were some faults in the construction of the jail. “We have conveyed the details of the faults to the officials in the public works department,” he said. According to estimates, an additional Rs1.95 crore needs to be spent on the prison to make it fully operational. According to a reply to an RTI query, Arthur Road jail was built for 800 prisoners but there are more than 2,000 inmates at present.

  9. Life convict uses RTI to prove innocence As reported by Koride Mahesh, Times of India, 15 Aug 2008, TNN HYDERABAD: In a unique case, a life convict has sought information from the GHMC under the Right to Information Act (RTI) to defend himself in a murder case before the Supreme Court. Mohd Irfan Ali, a resident of Old Santoshnagar, has been convicted in the murder case of M A Qadeer, a former employee of Wakf Board. Currently lodged at the Cherlapally open air jail, he also sought school records from the education department in Nizamabad. "Generally, we forward letters to relatives and friends of inmates. But Irfan Ali is the only convict who sought information under the RTI that too to defend his case," K Kesava Naidu, superintendent of jails, Prisoners of Agriculture Colony, Cherlapally, told 'TOI'. Ali, who earlier worked at the Secretariat in the revenue department, was convicted by the additional metropolitan sessions judge on January 24, 2003, in the murder case. Subsequently, he moved the high court. His appeal was dismissed by the court on October 17, 2003. Then he filed a special leave petition in the Supreme Court through the secretary, Supreme Court Legal Aid Services Committee, New Delhi. Ali said he needed the voter's list pertaining to the addresses of four houses in Santosh Nagar, Old Santosh Nagar and Hafeezbaba Nagar, where he reportedly resided in the 1990s. He sent the request first to the zonal commissioner, south zone, but was informed he should approach the GHMC additional commissioner (elections) for voter's list. Then, Ali sent the letter to the election wing on July 28. "I have been implicated in the murder case. The copies of voter's list are important to prove my innocence in the case," Ali said in his RTI application. However, his efforts went down the drain as GHMC replied a couple of days ago that since the information sought was over 18 years old, records were sent to the state archives department. It advised him to approach the department. ... Life convict uses RTI to prove innocence-Hyderabad-Cities-The Times of India
  10. As reported by Sandeep Ashar and Poornima Swaminathan in dnaindia.com on 24 June 2008: DNA - Mumbai - 1,660 still in Arthur Rd jail when they can get bail - Daily News & Analysis 1,660 still in Arthur Rd jail when they can get bail MUMBAI: At least 1,660 undertrials are languishing in Arthur Road Prison when they should have been out on bail. A reply to a Right to Information (RTI) query revealed that of the 2,296 lodged at the prison, nearly 72% — or 1,660 – were booked for offences which were of bailable nature. These undertrials have been booked for petty crimes such as ticketless travel and theft to forgery, kidnapping and culpable homicide. According to a 2005 amendment to section 436 of the Criminal Procedure Code (CrPC), if a person arrested for a bailable offence is unable to meet the bail requirements (money and surety) and remains in custody for more than a week, it is mandatory for the courts to release him/her on a personal recognisance bond (personal guarantee of attending court). Yet, undertrials continue to languish in jail due to pending court formalities. If executed, the amendment will drastically help in clearing the crammed prison. “There seems to be a certain kind of lethargy in administration of justice resulting in a lackadaisical attitude to the law and the rights of the accused,” says advocate Shyam Keswani. Keswani adds: “Also the accused are often brought to court so late that it leaves the magistrate very little time to properly examine the numerous remands before him.” Also, there were cases of delay in the bail order being delivered to the accused after it had been granted. Advocate Sushan Kunjuraman said that there were cases where the accused had come to Mumbai in search of a job and lived alone in the city. “He may be arrested for a petty crime. But since he lives alone, he has nobody to look after him,” said Kunjuraman. This, he said, was because as per the jail manuals, no undertrial can carry any money with him while he was in prison. “There are cases where the accused cannot afford to hire an advocate. This cannot be held against them,” said advocate Kishor Joshi. He added that by spending long periods in prison, first-time offenders who were often innocent were exposed to hardened criminals, thereby getting drafted into a life of crime. The revelation was made by the public information officer or the Central Prison at Arthur Road in a reply to an RTI application filed by Sanjay Sharma of the National Anti-Corruption and Crime Preventive Council (NACCPC).
