[h=1]PMO declines information on people meeting Modi[/h] The Prime Minister's Office has refused to reveal to an RTI applicant the information about people who had sought an appointment to meet Prime Minister Narendra Modi, saying this would be prejudicial to the country's security and integrity. Rohit Kumar who had sought the information under the Right to Information Act termed the answer "ridiculous", and said he would appeal. The chief public information officer (CPIO) in the PMO in response to the RTI query by Rohit Kumar - a third-year student of Kalinga Institute of Industrial Technology in Odisha - cited concerns for the sovereignty, integrity, security and the strategic interest to hold back the information sought by him. The prime minister meets people both formally and informally in connection with the functioning of the government and other issues and revealing this information may have "prejudicial effect on the sovereignty and integrity of India, the security, strategic, scientific or economic interests of the state and relations with foreign states, as well as confidential third party information," the PMO said in its reply. Declining the information, it said, "...there may be instances of such meeting being exempt from disclosure of information under Sections 8(1) and 11 of the Right to Information Act." "Sometimes, persons meeting even request the very fact of the meeting having taken place be kept secret," it said in response to Rohit Kumar's query seeking details of individuals whose request for appointment was granted and who had met the prime minister and how many of those were from a business background. A disappointed Rohit Kumar said: "It is ridiculous. How the sovereignty, security, unity and integrity of the country is threatened by the disclosure of information about the people who had met or meet the prime minister upon the grant of the request for the same?" He told IANS in an email that he would file an appeal challenging the refusal of information. "This is indeed an unfortunate era going on for all the activists. All the rights-based laws are being questioned like MGNREGA, RTI Act, Land Acquisition Act etc." "The PMO has become the biggest rejector of RTI applications. So, this type of blatant opaqueness in the governance process is a huge threat to the democratic structure of the nation," he said. He also noted that it was not just the PMO which was declining requests for information sought under the RTI but all the departments under the present government were likewise stonewalling information.

sidmis posted a topic in RTI in MediaNational Convention on Right to Information and National Rural Employment Guarantee 9-10 September, 2009 Lucknow RTI and NREGA had generated tremendous hope among the people of this country. Some things have definitely changed for the better. But by and large people feel dissatisfied with the implementation of these two Acts. The initial enthusiasm is now giving room to some disillusionment. People are worried whether the spirit of these two Acts will meet the same fate and so many other wonderful laws and schemes in this country. A two day convention is being organized to take stock of the present status of implementation of these two Acts as well as to discuss ways of making intervention so that common people may benefit from them more than they are presently able to. Aruna Roy ji will participate on 10th September in this convention. Schedule: 9th September, First Session: 12 noon to 2 pm and Second Session: 3 pm to 6 pm; Issues to be presented: Problems faced at the level of PIOs and First Appellete Authority, Implementation of Section 4(1)b of the RTI Act, Problems faced at Information Commission, Appointment of Commissioners, Humiliation of applicants at the hands of Information Commissioners, Government’s attempt to tamper with the Act, Problems faced by the Information Commission. 10th September, First Session: 10 am to 12 noon: concluding session on RTI; Second Session: 2 pm to 5 pm: NREGA Organized by National Alliance of People’s Movements and National Campaign for People’s Right to Information Convenors team: [Originally Posted by Ms. URVASHI SHARMA in HJ Newsgroup] P.S.

sidmis posted a topic in RTI in MediaGovt officials using public money to challenge CIC order AS reported in The Hindu, Sunday, June 7, 2009 : 1300 Hrs New Delhi (PTI): The CIC will inform Comptroller and Auditor General (CAG) about the practice of government officials, who are slapped with penalties by it, of challenging such orders in the courts at the cost of public money. The decision was taken during a recent meeting of the Central Information Commission chaired by the Chief Information Commissioner Wajahat Habibullah. "The Commission observed that the penalty proceedings of the Commission are being challenged in the court of Law at the cost of Public exchequer, whereas the penalties are payable by the individual officials to the Consolidated Fund," it noted. Since its inception in 2005 the Commission had imposed 211 penalties, till September 2008, on erring officials, according to an official data. According to section 20 of the RTI Act, the CIC can impose penalty of Rs 250 per day, not exceeding Rs 25,000, on the Central Public Information Officers till the time the information is delayed beyond the stipulated date on which the information is to be given. "Such officials are trying to seek refuge from courts by filing cases on behalf of their departments whereas they are supposed to do it from their pocket," a member of the Commission, who did not want to be named, said.
