  1. Meerut: After his wife met with an accident near Begum Bagh in 2014, professor S K Ghai filed a Right to Information query asking the Nagar Nigam why street lights in some of the city's oldest areas have still not been fixed. Though Ghai filed the application in June 2014 and the RTI Act stipulates that replies must come within 45 days, he received his reply on June 23 - almost a year later. While the Nagar Nigam said all dark spots mentioned in the query have been fixed since then, Ghai claims only one of them has been repaired. "Last year, my wife was riding her scooter at night along the dark Chakbandi Road. A passerby inadvertently spat betel juice at her. In trying to avoid being spattered, she swerved to the side and fell into a drain. After the accident, I filed an RTI query asking the Nagar Nigam why street lights in the area were not working. Even though I should have received a reply within 45 days, I received one after a full year," Ghai, a professor of commerce at NAS Degree College told TOI.

  2. Govt makes RTI test mandatory for officials To encourage government staffers get acquainted with provisions of the Right to Information Act (RTI), 2005, the Administrative Reforms (AR) department of the Delhi government has planned an RTI comprehension test for its employees. While the department has conducted similar tests earlier, efforts are being made this year to make the test mandatory for Public Information Officers (PIO) of all government departments. The test, which will have a “college-exam-like” roll-number system, will be held in September, a notification issued by the AR department said. Those who score 80 per cent and above in the 90-minute written test, will be awarded Rs 1,500. “The test would be confined to the provisions of the Right to Information Act and contain 100-marks objective/subjective type questions. The duration of the test would be one- and-half hours and separate papers would be set for each category — one for LDC (Lower Divisional Clerk), Group D and their equivalent, one for the UDCs, assistants and their equivalent and the third for superintendents and their equivalent and above,” the notification read.

  3. Right to Information (RTI) Act Commissioner Lam Tantia Kumari on Monday rapped the Chittoor officials for “poor” implementation of the Act in the district. Ms. Kumari, who was in the city as a part of her three-day tour to review the pending cases related to RTI Act, pointed out that pending cases were in the rise since January this year. “More than 700 cases were cleared in the beginning of the year. As many as 582 cases have been registered till date which shows an increase in awareness among people about official apathy,” she said. Referring to the status of pending cases, she said that most of the officials were trying to withhold the information sought under RTI Act. “The spirit of the Act has been tarnished with officials not striving for transparency and accountability,” she pointed out.

  8. Interlocking tiles: 3 officials to be chargesheeted LUDHIANA: Local bodies minister Anil Joshi has recommended chargesheeting of officials found guilty of using substandard interlocking tiles on Gill Road and for providing financial benefit to the contractor. This information has been procured by city resident Kuldeep Singh Khaira under RTI. Joshi had ordered Ludhiana municipal corporation to file a chargesheet against superintending engineer HS Khosa, executive engineer Rakesh Sharma and junior engineer Rakesh Singla. The inquiry report has also nailed these officials for providing financial benefit to contractor. Khaira in 2014 had filed a complaint in this regard to Punjab Vigilance Bureau, which further forwarded the complaint to local bodies department. During the inquiry, the interlocking tiles were found to be of inferior quality. The report further states that the contractor was paid Rs 35 per piece for 40mm tiles and Rs 50 per piece for 80mm tiles whereas the rate fixed for 40mm tile was just Rs 9 and 80mm tile was Rs 12. The minister has asked MC commissioner to take required action against the contractor in this case. After testing the sealed sample of tiles provided by the MC to RTI activist, the testing and consultancy cell of Guru Nanak Dev Engineering College, Ludhiana, found that sample of a 80 mm, was of less comprehensive strength than estimated. The document obtained under RTI from local bodies department also said MC had also sent samples of tiles for testing. Some more testing reports by the same college revealed that the tiles had compressive strength of 30.40, 34.10 and 50.90 MPa. Sources said the work to install tiles on this road started about four years ago, and was supposed to completed within six months, but the contractor had completed only 50% work so far.

  9. Though the ACB finally sent the details sought by C.J. Karira, the activist has questioned the delay of more than three years in furnishing the information. “The sad part is that this kind of information is available on the websites of the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) and the Central Vigilance Commission (CVC). I wonder why the ACB initially said it can’t give the information,” he wondered. As per the documents give by Mr. Karira, his Right to Information (RTI) application dated May 12, 2012, was initially rejected by the ACB in its response dated June 16, 2012, in which it stated that the details of the 91 cases were ‘exempted’ from disclosure under section 8(1) (h) of the RTI Act, 2005.’ “Only after three hearings, they finally gave the information. Delay in giving information under the RTI Act beats the whole point of having the Act itself,” lamented Mr. Karira. Read at: Highest number of ACB cases against revenue officials - The Hindu
  10. State information commissioners (SICs) seem reluctant to use one of the most potent tools that has been made available to them to make Public Information Officers (PIOs) and Appellate Authorities (AAs) comply with RTI guidelines. SICs have been granted the powers to impose fines on erring officials. The fines imposed is deducted from the salary of the officials. Data obtained by The Indian Express under the Right to Information (RTI) Act reveals that in 2014 fines were imposed in less than 10 per cent of the second appeals filed before SICs.

  11. [h=1]Mumbai: Corrupt officials did not spare even rape survivors, farmers[/h] The fact that those in power take bribes will not come as a surprise to anyone; however, what is shocking in the 83 cases mentioned in an Anti-Corruption Bureau list is the background of the victims. Here are some of the sinners. How low would a person have to sink to seek a 'cut' from the money being handed over to a rape survivor? Vinod Bhosale, an official from the Women and Child Welfare department, no less, could have the answer to that question. He was caught red-handed trying to extract Rs 20,000 from a rape survivor to hand over her Rs 50,000 cheque under a government scheme to aid victims of such crimes. What’s even worse is that Bhosale is just one of 83 government officials, figuring on a list compiled by the state Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB), who were caught red handed and arrested for taking bribes in 2014 from the poorest of the poor to give them the benefits they are entitled to under various government schemes. The list of shame includes doctors trying to fleece elderly women before giving them spectacles, health officers demanding money to release cheques for constructing toilets and even a school principal, who asked a cook making mid-day meals for children to fork out Rs 1,500 before releasing her salary cheque. Even poor farmers, many of whom have been driven to suicide because of their financial situation, were not spared. ACB officials say the details of these cases are meant to give a clearer picture of how the benefits from various government schemes meant for people living below the poverty line either fail to reach them in full or are made available to them after a long delay. The only silver lining in this sordid tale is that in 2014, the ACB saw a considerable increase in the number of people approaching it to complain. Amazed “It is the height of shamelessness. Whether it’s a rape survivor, a senior citizen or people looking for basic needs like toilets in their villages, the corrupt babus have not spared a single person coming to them for availing these benefits. We have also arrested a principal from a Latur-based school who asked for Rs 1,500 from a cook of a municipal school to release her cheque for providing mid-day meals for the students,” an ACB official said. According to ACB officials, there are around 38 different government schemes to give subsidies and other benefits to people living below the poverty line. Of these, the main schemes are Employment Generation Scheme, Indira Avas Yojana, Ekatmik Vikas Yojana, Rajeev Gandhi Health Scheme and others related to goat farming, water supply and tap connection. There are also schemes for rape victims, dalits, slum dwellers etc. To avail the benefits under the schemes, the villagers often have to go through the gram sevaks or their village head to get the amount. Many of the villagers are illiterate and usually give away a portion of what they are supposed to get as a cut or a bribe to speed up the payment process because they know that those who refuse to pay up are made to run from pillar to post. “The schemes are meant for very poor people that need the government’s help to improve their quality of life and these officers demand money even from them to get the benefits of the schemes. Some of the complainants have approached us from faraway places like Gadchiroli, Chandrapur, Washim, Yavatmal and Amravati, and we have arrested the accused,” said Pravin Dixit, Director General of Police, ACB, Maharashtra. Sparing no one ACB officials said they were shocked when they found doctors, health officers and even a school principal indulging in such activities. “One government officer demanded money to release cheques for building toilets in a village in Nashik. The gramsevak was arrested while taking Rs 600 from the complainant to release his cheques. A doctor was also arrested for demanding R400 from poor elderly women for giving them spectacles under the government’s health scheme,” said Dixit. Unemployed villagers work under the Employment Generation Scheme of the government, but when it comes to releasing their wages, the Panchayat Samiti officers demand a cut from them. “Some such villagers approached us and we trapped around 14 officers,” said an ACB official. Officers also arrested around 12 government employees who demanded money from poor people who had got fund for housing from the government. “The officers from the Zilla Parishad and Panchayat Samitis and Gramsevaks demanded money to release cheques under the Indira Vikas Yojana,” the official added. “They (corrupt babus) don’t understand that such schemes are meant for very poor people who don’t have food or employment and make do with the money they get for whatever days they can get employment through government schemes. The corrupt officials demand cuts even from them. We had published our numbers in such areas and that’s how the complainants approached us,” said the official.

  14. Wednesday, March 04, 2015 The New Indian Express VIJAYAWADA: Though the Right to Information (RTI) Act ensures transparency, the lack of awareness among government officials is causing a major concern for its successful implementation, said state information commissioner P Vijay Babu. Addressing mediapersons at the Sub-collector’s office here Tuesday, he said that inquiry was conducted into 50 cases booked under the RTI Act. Show-cause notices were issued concerned persons in eight cases and about 19 cases were dismissed. He said most of the cases were related to land and warned that stringent action would be taken against the officials if they were found lethargic in providing information to people. Earlier in the day, addressing an awareness programme for information officers and assistant information officers, he said employees should lead by example in effective implementation of the Right to Information Act. He said the RTI Act would help in building corruption-free society. He also advised the officials to bring the details of applicants found misusing the Act to the notice of the commission.

  17. The Central Information Commission may have ordered Supreme Court judges to declare their assets but it has shied away from disclosure of its own `movable assets'. Responding to a recent RTI application filed by Bengaluru-based activist Arun Agrawal seeking to know movable assets of the information commissioners, the CIC said, “No such information is maintained by it.“ CIC is the transparency watchdog for all central government ministries. The stand taken by the CIC is in contravention to the recently enacted Lokpal Act, which makes it mandatory to declare movable and immovable assets of every official working in the government. The website of the CIC has a column under which assets of all seven information commissioners have been given summarily mentioning only properties owned by them and do not mention cash and other movable assets held by them. Declaration of assets including cash is mandatory for MPs, candidates contesting elections and public servants including SC judges. After the orders of the CIC, the Supreme Court judges have started declaring both their movable and immovable assets which are updated every year and posted on the website of the apex court. The order was upheld by Delhi high court. The commission had recently also directed the Sebi chairman to disclose assets and liabilities. Agrawal in his appeal sought disclosure of movable assets of the information commissioners saying if the CIC does not declare their movable assets, then adverse conclusion may be drawn.
