  1. IMPHAL, March 26: Anomalies in selection and appointment of three college principals by the Government on November 14, 2014, have surfaced through RTI findings, a press release of the All Manipur College Teachers`™ Association, AMCTA, said.

  2. IMPHAL, March 17: The FCI regional officials and a contractor presented false data on the distance between Jagiroad to FCI FSD Sangaiporou route in a well organised fashion to siphon off huge amount of money from the government, the Transporter and Driver Council said today. .......... But an RTI application revealed that there have been atrocious misrepresentations of facts of the distance of the route used by the contractor. In their reply to the RTI application, they again mentioned that the distance between the two points is 631 km, and justified their rate of Rs. 5999 per trip. They claimed they did not use NH-37 for ferrying their goods and instead ferried the goods by the Jiribam route. Read at: Multi crores rupees misappropriated while ferrying FCI goods | KanglaOnline
  3. As reported by kanglaonline.com on January, 8 2009 The Imphal Free Press IMPHAL, Jan 7: A one day media workshop on "Right to Information Act, RTI 2005, was held at the State Guest House, Sanjenthong, by the State Academy of Training, SAT. The workshop was participated by representatives of various media organisations, apart from officials of the SAT. According to the organisers, the intent of the seminar was to familiarise the media about the features of the RTI, and how the media can help spread the message to the larger public that this was an empowering act meant for them. Moses Chalai and Th Raghumani, the chief guest and president of the function today, and authorities of the SAT, stressed on the need for the provisions of this act to be publicised to the public so as to empower them. They also emphasised on the fact that this act is meant to make government policies transparent and thus minimise the avenues for official corruption. Four resource persons, namely Irengbam Arun editor Ireibak, Yumnam Rupachandra news editor ISTV, Pradip Phanjoubam, editor Imphal Free Press, Manibabu Likmabam, of the DDK, besides the guest of honour, Ch. Narendra, advocate spoke. While agreeing with the organisers that the RTI is indeed an empowering act meant to draw the participation of the common people into the governance process at the highest level, the resource persons were also quick to point out the weaknesses or faulty implementation of the RTI in Manipur. Irengbam Arun said although Manipur has formed an information commission under the RTI Act, it still remains an incomplete body. It is also uncertain if public information officers, PIOs have been appointed in every government department as required by the act. Yumnam Rupachandra said the RTI is an empowering act for the common man, but while it is a potent weapon, it is already evident the act has also put those seeking to expose corrupt practices through its use, into new dangers from vested interests. Pradip Phanjoubam said the RTI still has many grey areas. As for instance, he said there is no effective way to enforce compliance of the provisions of the act when somebody seeks information. As for instance the act puts a penalty of Rs 200 a day on PIOs who unreasonably do not cooperate with information seekers, with a ceiling of Rs 25,000. This can be peanuts in a hypothetical situation when somebody seeks information on say a Rs. 5 crore scandal, for the PIO and accomplices can simply refuse and meet the penalty of Rs. 25,000 to save exposing scandal. Manibabu Likmabam felt the RTI would be much more effective if the media actively participated in its dissemination. He said it would also be extremely helpful if a handbook on the use of the RTI were to be published by the SAT. Ch. Narendra, summed up the proceedings saying that this was a priceless instrument to ensure policy transparency and to end a British colonial legacy of keeping official matters away from public eye with the help of acts such as the "Official Secret Act 1923" which continued as a legacy long after India became independent.

  4. As reported by e-pao.net Hueiyen News Service on 21 December 2008 Imphal, December 21 2008: MANIPUR CHIEF Minister Okarm Ibobi today said that Right to Information Act, 2005 is like the steering of a vehicle moving on the roads, it steers a government off corruption and makes it transparent and accountable. The Chief Minister was speaking as the chief guest at the inaugural function of a seminar on the theme "Role of Legislators in the implementation of Right to Information Act" held at the state Legislative Assembly Complex here under the aegis of Former Presiding Officers' Forum, Manipur. O Ibobi further said that the real objective of the Act is to make a democratic form of government transparent and accountable by eradicating corruption. The trouble is that though people have appreciated the RTI Act so much, little is known about it to the people. He said, the seminar organised by the Former Presiding Officers' Forum would provide an opportunity for the legislators who are the representatives of the people to know more about the Act so that they would be able to go in the right way. If the Forum could spread better awareness about the Act through media to the people, it's hoped that the (present) government would have more transparency and accountability. "With this Act, let's make our society a society full of transparency and accountability without corruption," Chief Minister O Ibobi said. Delivering valedictory speech, Manipur Assembly Speaker Dr S Budhichandra, who presided over the inaugural function, opined that in making a democratic set up more perfect, Right to Information was very important. It was questionable whether the rules and regulations of the Act were properly functional, Dr Budhichandra said and added, nobody should misuse the Act and it should be used properly for the betterment of the society. President of the Former Presiding Officers' Forum, W Angou pointed outin his introductory speech of the seminar that inorder to facilitate transparency and accountability in a government and to eradicate the evils of corruption, all citizens must know the policies and programmes of the government and their objectives fully, The RTI Act provides that opportunity, he said. Angou further pointed out that making good use of the provisions of the RTI Act, the NGOs and civil society organisations could make the poor and weak sections of the people of the state avail of the benefits of the various social welfare schemes and development programmes. He expressed concern that the legislators of the state and the Centre, who themselves were the makers of law, haven't paid special attention to disseminating wide-spread awareness among the people to fulfill the objective of the Act. Former Speakers of Manipur Legislative Assembly, Y Yaima and W Angou chaired the seminar. Many ministers, MLAs, ex-MP, ex-MLAs and other experts took part in the seminar and discussed various issues relating to the RIT Act.

    RTI solace seeker faces threat

    As reported by The Sangai Express on 18/12/2008 Imphal, December 18 2008: A woman job card holder, who had filed an application to the BDO Imphal East seeking information on National Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme (NREGS) under the Rights to Information Act, has alleged she was threatened to withdraw the application by Panchayat members. According to information received by the press, on December 8, Moirangthem Ongbi Ibemchoubi Leima of Takhel Gram Panchayat in Imphal East district filed the application to the BDO under RTI Act seeking information on the number of NREGS job card holders in ward nos 6 and 7 of Takhel Gram Panchayat, their ages, addresses and names of parents/husbands. But the application has raised the hackles of some Panchayat members who insisting that she withdraw the application. In connection with this rare case, a team of media-persons had gone to Takhel today and met the Pradhan of Takhel Gram Panchayat Yumkhaibam Biren. Talking to mediapersons, the Pradhan said he came to know about the application when he went to the office of Imphal East DC a couple of days back to submit the bill of the works executed under the NREGS. While informing that staff of the office had told him not to allow filing of such applications as it disturb their work, Biren admitted that there might be some discrepancies with regard to ages of the job card holders in his Gram Panchayat. In all 938 job cards have been issued, the Pradhan added. Concerned over the filing of the application, a public meeting attended mostly by the job card holders was reportedly held at Takhel Lai Lampak yesterday. Apart from resolving that Ibemchoubi should withdraw her application, the complainant was reprimanded why she had gone to file the application directly at the DC office instead of first taking up the matter with the Panchayat. When contacted, Ibemchoubi said she had only wanted to know some informations, but 'they' are angry with her. In yesterday's meeting attended by the Pradhan himself, Ibemchoubi said, she heard over the PA system that she should be banished from the locality. After the meeting, three Panchayat members accompanied by some villagers also came to her house insisting that she withdraw the application.

    Right practice

    Right practice as reported Street Legal section, The Telegraph, September 24 , 2008 An individual who took the examination for recruitment as sub-inspector wanted to scrutinise his answer script later as he smelt corruption in the procedure. The Gauhati High Court upheld his right to see the script. The Manipur Police Department challenged the order saying that it would entitle all applicants to this right. The Gauhati High Court disagreed, saying that the right to know was a part of the right to freedom of speech and expression. The applicant did not have to give a reason for his request under the provisions of the Right to Information Act. The court also observed that this would ensure greater transparency and fairness.

  8. Bishnupur DC served show cause for supplying forged documents under RTI As Reported in The Imphal Free Press IMPHAL, Jun 20: The Manipur information commissioner today served a show cause notice to the deputy commissioner of Bishnupur district asking why penalty should not be imposed on him for providing forged documents while providing information to an applicant under the RTI Act. Manipur chief information commissioner, RK Angousana gave the ruling in connection with a complaint filed by an individual named S Tomba Singh of Bishnupur ward no. 11 against the deputy commissioner, Bishnupur district and principal secretary (health), the appellate authority of the RTI alleging that the documents provided by the SPIO of the office to him were not genuine but forged ones. Apart from not providing the information well in time, the SPIO also delayed in providing the information to the complaintnant, the chief commissioner alleged in his ruling. The complainant was seeking information/documents regarding the implementation of rural health mission in Bishnupur district for the period from 2005-06 to 2007-08. As per the complaint of the applicant to the state information commissioner, the number of pages of the information package was mentioned as 160 in the forwarding letter, while it was only 154. Many pages of the information document were illegible and also all the pages were not authenticated as there was no signature on the relevant documents, the complainant alleged. He further revealed that the signatures of the SPIO were also different on each page of the documents. In his complaint, Tomba also expressed doubt on the signature of the contractor on the sanction orders and the APRs as they were not similar and suggested the need for a comparison. The names of the beneficiaries which the applicant desired to know were not given and only the name of the contractor was furnished. The photographs of the works as well as the information for the year 2005 are not provided by the SPIO. In the hearing of the case, the commission said that it had gone through the documents supplied by the SPIO to the complainant and found that the documents were not authenticated properly either by the SPIO or a gazetted officer. It also has no information about the beneficiary list as well as the photographs of the completed works. After observing the documents, the chief information commissioner issued the show cause to the deputy commissioner, Bishnupur district asking him why penalty as prescribed under section 20 of the RTI Act, 2005 which includes a maximum fine of Rs. 25,000 not be imposed on him for failure to furnish the authentic information to an applicant under Right to Information Act, 2005 well in time. The show cause notice which should be furnished to the state information commission within a week from the date of receipt of the order also asked him to explain why a compensation amount of Rs. 2,100 at the rate of Rs. 300 per day of attendance should not be paid to the complainant by the office of the deputy commissioner as compensation for the loss and other determent under section 19(8)(b) of the RTI Act, 2005 for failure to provide the information in time.

  9. As reported in The Sangai Express and reproduced in e-pao.net on 22 May 2008: CORE accuses Home Dept of defying RTI Act : 22nd may08 ~ E-Pao! Headlines CORE accuses Home Dept of defying RTI Act Imphal, May 21: The Centre for Organisation Research and Education (CORE) has accused the State Home Department of deliberately impeding enforcement of the Right To Information (RTI) Act in the State. CORE also asserted that there has been no reformation in Manipur Police. Speaking to media persons at its office here today, CORE programme co-ordinator Wahengbam Joykumar informed that he submitted an appeal to the State Public Information Officer (SPIO) of the Home Department as an appellant on August 31 last year seeking certain details under the RTI Act. The details sought under the RTI Act included names, addresses, educational qualifications, office addresses and functioning telephone numbers of the members of State Security Commission, State Level Police Complaint Authority and District Police Complaint Authority. The appeal also sought functioning telephone numbers of Superintendents of Police, police stations including mobile phone numbers if any and also the reason for non-functional telephone numbers of police stations, if there is any, Joykumar elaborated. However, the details sought were denied by the SPIO saying that Manipur Police Department is exempted from the purview of RTI Act 2005 excepting matters related to corruption and human rights violation. Subsequent upon the denial, another appeal was submitted to the Fast Appellate Authority on October 23.But there was no response within the stipulated time. This was followed by another appeal submitted to the Manipur Information Commission (MIC) on December 3 last year, Joykumar conveyed. Later, after hearing both the parties, the MIC issued a ruling on March 25 this year. The ruling directed the SPIO to provide the information sought by the appellant within two weeks. The SPIO was also served show cause notice seeking to impose a fine of Rs 1500 for not providing the sought after information in time, the CORE functionary said. On May 19, the SPIO finally provided a response to the appellant. But most of the details sought were missing in the response. It did not give the office addresses nor telephone numbers of State Level Police Complaint Authority and District Level Police Com-plaint Authority. It did not contain telephone numbers of SPs and police stations either, Joykumar disclosed. Against the affidavit submitted to the Supreme Court by the Chief Secretary of Manipur on March 31 last year, information provided by the SPIO said that District Police Complaint Authority of Imphal West will function in all the four valley districts while District Police Complaint Authority of Senapati will function in all the remaining districts. But in a connection with a writ petition, the Chief Secretary on April 7, 2007 submitted an affidavit to the Supreme Court stating that the State Government has already constituted the State Security Commission, State Level Police Complaint Authority and District Level Police complaint Authority in all districts, Joykumar quoted. As the response of the SPIO was far from satisfactory, another appeal has been submitted, informed Joykumar while alleging that the State police have done nothing for the security of the people. There is no helpline including for fire mishaps. The State has failed miserably to materialise its assurance to reform the Manipur Police Dept, Joykumar asserted. In fact, the Home Dept is making a mockery of the RTI Act, he said. Under the prevailing circumstances, human rights defenders in the State have reservations to make any criticism of the Government, he disclosed.

    Petition taints MPSC image

    Petition taints MPSC image Source: The Sangai Express Imphal, August 11: No less than 27 candidates who appeared in the Manipur Civil Services Combined Examination, but did not make the grade, have approached legal redressal bodies for annulment of the examination results. While about 10 of the candidates had formally intimated their apprehension on mark allotment anomaly to the State's Right to Information court praying for production of their respective written test answer scripts and documents pertaining to viva voce, 17 of their colleagues have filed writ petitions before the gauhati High Court praying for quashing of the examination and for conducting a fresh one. Another new complaint landed before the RTI Commissioner yesterday where in father of a female candidate expressed awe regarding his ward's below-par performance in the examination. One Oinam Binodkumar of Purana Rajbari, complaining on behalf of her daughter Nomika Oinam, said the candidate's marks secured in both paper I and II of Zoology, her main subjects, 'are 'unbelievable as she did much better and was expected to score over 200'.Nomika reportedly got 98 and 128 marks out of 300 in both papers. According to the father, his unsuccessful daughter in the MPSC exams achieved first class first in her MSc examination under Dr ambedkar University (Agra) and had confided of doing well in the viva voce and was apparently unsatisfied that the final result showed her daughter score only 150 out of the total possible mark (300).Other candidates had also drawn the attention of the RTI Court on similar contentions. On the otherhand, following a writ petition filed by 17 unsuccessful candidates, Imphal Bench of the Gauhati High Court had on July 31 asked MPSC authorities to keep all answer scripts and interview documents of the same examination under seal cover. Passing the interim order, the Court also issued notice of motion to the respondents making them returnable within 3 weeks. The petitioners, who raised doubts over the allocation of marks in both the main and viva voce, prayed for quashing the exam and conduct a fresh one. In the MPSC examination, result of which was declared last month, 128 candidates were selected for different posts out of which 25 would be newly inducted for the Manipur Civil Service (MCS) and 32 for the post of Manipur Police Service (MPS).

The RTI Act, 2005 was enacted in the state with a gazette notification issued on July 12, 2005. Though it was delayed, the chief information commissioner of Manipur was appointed on September 12 this year. But for such a long time the departments have not published or put up their manuals to the commission. However, the much needed manuals of the departments or authority within the purview of the RTI are yet to be prepared and published to bring implementation of RTI into proper shape. Among others, information to be provided by the public authorities are detailed write ups of the powers and duties of its officers and employees. the procedures followed in the decision making process include channels of supervision and accountability and the norms set by the particular organization for the discharge of its functions, budget allocations etc. Apart from this, a particular public authority or department must maintain all the records duly catalogued and indexed in a manner and form which would facilitate the right to information under this Act and ensure that all records that are appropriate to be computerized are within a reasonable time and subject to availability of resources computerized and connected through a network all over the country on different systems so that access to such records is facilitated. The commission, through the state department of personnel and administrative reforms (administrative reforms division), had for the first time, directed the public authorities and departments of the state government within the purview of the RTI Act, 2005 to submit the action taken reports of heads of the administration on September 22. The department of personnel and administrative reforms had sent reminders on October 9 but the same could not be submitted to the commissioner as none of the departments prepared or published the manuals. Almost all the public authorities and departments under the Manipur government except department of personnel and administrative reforms are yet to submit the particulars of the organization, functions and duties along with other details to the state information commission as required under section 4 (1) (b) of the RTI Act, 2005.
