When to file RCR(restitution of Conjugal rights) and can a wife file for the same on a husband ...???
kumarsvem posted a question in Ask for Non RTI SupportTeam, Pls help me getting a proper clarification on the below things... Can we file RCR(restitution of Conjugal rights) against husband who is not coming to take his wife to his home... There is one case in my family similar to this. Wife came for delivery to her parents house and was not taken to their in-laws for 3 years. As she came to her parents house when she was pregnant because her husband was torturing her during pregnant due to some reasons(compelled by his brother and also for not satisfying his desires). The parents were taking care of her,as her husband was not coming to take her home, where his elder brother(married) and parents visited 3 times to take her saying that they will look after her irrespective of her husband stating that they came without informing her husband, brides parents and relatives refused to send as they were afraid and felt insecure as her husband didn't came to see her & new born child since birth. Brides parents have reached mediators and "Kula pedda" to make the husband to take her home.In between they have made many tries to call her husband which yields no fruits. Instead the husband take her home he sent a divorce notice to a wrong address in view of taking a ex-party divorce mentioning that she was living with her parents and not coming with him since 3 years and many more lies including the marriage date. Knowing his cruel idea relatives forced her to file a 498A on her husband and his family, but she was not willing to do so as he want to stay with her husband and to be him the father for her child. When he was asked by some mediators he said simply that " I dont want her " without any reasons and he also says that I filed a case for divorce and lets see in court. In this case there are so many proofs that the woman was deceived by her husband and was tortured physically and mentally when she was pregnant and also she lost her first pregnancy because of hes husband's cruel behavior. Even though he was so she wants to live with him for her child's bright future. Pls clarify and provide me proper solution for below questions. 1. without any interference of wife can a husband take divorce for his own wrongs...?? 2. can we file a RCR on husband after he filed a divorce case against his wife..?? 3. Are weren't any laws to get back her rights a> to demand her husband to take her home as she was left abandoned. b> to get back the father's love to her child (who doesn't see the child for 2.5yrs since birth) c> to live with her husband who wants to take divorce for his own wrongs. PLS CLARIFY AND SUGGEST SOMETHING THAT MAKE THEM LIVE TOGETHER. WE DON"T WANT TO MISUSE 498A OR ANY OTHER LAWS. WE JUST WANT THE WOMAN GET BACK HER RIGHTS SUFFERING A LOT BEING A TRADITIONAL INDIAN WOMAN. Regards..
Hello friends... I am Bharat Chawla from Mumbai. I would appreciate if someone could tell me 'whether there is a time limit for restoration of dismissed cases by the High Courts' and whether the Bombay High Court and other Courts are governed by the RTI Act to give out this type of information. Thanks

karira posted a topic in RTI in MediaCitizens cannot invoke their right to information in seeking opinions and advices from government over interpretation of a law, the country's apex RTI body has held. This was said by the Central Information Commission (CIC) over a retired senior officer's plea seeking from the Centre an interpretation of an Income Tax Act provision over tax exemption limits on rent payable by an assessee. In his RTI application filed before Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT), Jaipur-resident L K Verma also sought a review of proposal by the Finance Ministry to increase such exemption limits. The matter was taken up with the Commission after CBDT said it was not obliged under the RTI law to provide an interpretation in respect to a provision of the I-T law. Upholding CBDT's view on the matter, Information Commissioner A N Tiwari said, "To try to force the department to change its line of thinking and its interpretation of a given set of laws through ingenious use of RTI Act cannot be supported." The Commission also rejected Verma's submission that the definition of "information," as entailed in section 2(f) of RTI Act, included the expression "opinions and advices." "It is important to note that the expressions 'opinions' and 'advices' in the section refer to opinions, advices which form part of material such as advices and opinion present on files, documents, records and so on," Tiwari said. "It would be wholly incorrect to read these expressions to mean that an information-seeker can demand from a public authority its opinion and seek advice in a matter of the petitioner's interest," the Commissioner added.

ganpat1956 posted a topic in RTI in MediaMinisters have slashed the amount of information they allow the public to know, a report has revealed. It showed that a string of Whitehall departments have tightened the secrecy surrounding their activities despite Tony Blair's promise that Labour would bring an era of open government. Among ministers whose civil servants are now refusing to answer more than half of all the questions put by the public under Labour's Freedom of Information Act are Home Secretary John Reid, Foreign Secretary Margaret Beckett, andTrade Secretary Alistair Darling. Even Lord Chancellor Lord Falconer - the minister in charge of the freedom of information system that Mr Blair once boasted would bring 'a dramatic difference to the way Britain is governed' - has given answers to fewer than four out of ten requests for information. The cutback in what Whitehall allows the public to find out comes in advance of Lord Falconer's planned new restrictions on freedom of information law. These would prevent MPs, lobby groups or journalists from putting more than one request in every three months, and which would also greatly increase the number of requests turned down on the grounds that they would cost too much in bureaucrats' time. Critics say the effect of Lord Falconer's new rules will be to ensure that the only people who would be allowed to get information out of Whitehall would be those who do not ask for it. But details of the requests already turned down even before Lord Falconer can bring in his new rules show that information released has been cut back by many ministries. The report from the Department for Constitutional Affairs showed that Lord Falconer's own office gave full answers in response to only 39 per cent of requests that might have been answered in the three months between July and September. The 39 per cent compared with 40 per cent in the last three months of 2005. Mrs Beckett's Foreign Office answered only 30 per cent of requests, compared with 33 per cent at the end of last year. Mr Reid's Home Office answered 40 per cent, up from 38 per cent at the end of last year but down from 49 per cent in the early part of this year. The Northern Ireland Office answered 47 per cent compared with 71 per cent at the end of 2005. Across all Government departments, 60 per cent of requests are now being met, a fall of two per cent on six months earlier. Of nearly 63,000 Freedom of Information requests made since the law came into force two years ago, more than 26,000 have been answered only with silence. The figures come as ministers prove reluctant to part with information while in Government that they said should be public when they were in opposition. Mr Blair declared in March 1996 that "we want to end the obsessive and unnecessary secrecy which surround Government activity and make Government information available to the public unless there are good reasons not to do so." But the Government has refused, for example, to release early drafts of the advice provided to Mr Blair by Attorney General Lord Goldsmith on the legality of the war with Iraq. It has declined to give new details of Tony and Cherie Blair's guests at Chequers since the couple were embarrassed by publication in 2004 of names of people they had officially entertained. Tories said that ministers were trying to shut the public out. Shadow Constitutional Affairs Secretary Oliver Heald said: "I fear that the Government may be attempting to close down public scrutiny by curtailing the public's right to know with this more restrictive regime."
