  1. Section 4 of the RTI Act says that every public authority shall maintain all its records duly catalogued and indexed and ensure that they get computerized so that all important details related to these public authorities get published within 120 days of enactment of this Act.

Read details: UP government's RTI record miserable: Study - The Times of India

  4. As reported by Danish Raza at governancenow.com on OCTOBER 06 2010 No civic agency in the national capital except the NCMC has complied with the Central Information Commission (CIC) order regarding the disclosure of Commonwealth Games-related information. On August 6, Shailesh Gandhi, Information Commissioner at the CIC had written to the NDMC and chief secretary, Delhi, on absence of proactive disclosure about Games related projects. Taking cognizance of media reports about the projects, it directed NDMC and the state government’s various agencies to put up all the important Games related information on the agencies’ websites. “It appears from the websites of the different departments of the Delhi Government (ex. MCD, NDMC, Urban Development, PWD, Rural Development, Irrigation and Flood Control, Delhi Jal Board, DSIIDC etc.) who are responsible for implementing these projects, that certain disclosures have not been made till date,” wrote Gandhi, giving a 15 September deadline for making public the information. Till date, no other agency except NDMC has disclosed the information so far, which, according to the CIC direction, should include nature of work, date of awarding tender, name of contractor and amount paid to the contractor. “Let me ask my staff. I believe they should have done it,” said B K Chugh, Director- General of works, CPWD. N C Joshi, Spokesperson of the Ministry of Urban Development said that the civic agencies and not the Ministry were directly involved with the Games. “But I heard about such directions being issued,” said he. According to MCD spokesperson Deep Mathur, details of the projects executed by the agency are available on the website, but not under the head ‘Commonwealth Games 2010’. “We are busy right now. Post Games, we will create a separate category on the website and put all Games related information under that.”
  5. In the attached order, IC AD has ordered that the Central Empowered Committee constituted by the Supreme Court is a Public Authority under the RTI act. http://cic.gov.in/CIC-Orders/AD-12032009-17.pdf The term “Public Authority” as defined u/s 2(h) of the Right to Information Act, 2005 therefore, means any authority or body or Institution established or constituted by or under the Constitution. The Supreme Court of India is an Institution created under provisions of the Article 124 of the Constitution and is, therefore, a Public Authority within the meaning of Section 2(h) of the Right to Information Act. Hence, any body or authority created under orders of a Public Authority; in this case, the Supreme Court of India, is also a Public Authority. The CEC being constituted by the Hon’ble Supreme Court by order dated 09.05.2002 and 09.09.2002 and formally constituted vide a notification dated 17.09.02 issued by the Ministry of Environment & Forests under sub-section (3) of Section 3 of the Environment Protection Act, 1986 is by all means a Public Authority as defined under provisions of the RTI Act, 2005. The foregoing discussion thus decides the First Issue and it is evident that the CEC being a body created and accountable to a Public Authority as also being wholly financed by a Public Authority, owes its origin and existence to a Public Authority viz the Supreme Court of India and is beyond doubt in itself also a Public Authority.
  6. Can audio-visual applications be made by or on behalf of illiterate persons? I don't think the RTI Act itself provides for it, but would RTI officers be faulted for taking cognizance of such applications? (In another context:There have been instances of High Court judges taking cognizance of complaints on post cards too.) Can audio-visual responses be sought? Can they be given? Thanks.
  7. As reported at assamtribune.com on 10 Nov 2009 Staff Reporter GUWAHATI, Nov 9 – The Assam Information Commission (AIC) has topped the list of 26 information commissions (ICs) across the country in terms of ‘Pro-disclosure Factor’, said the National RTI Awards Secretariat of the New Delhi-based NGO Public Cause Research Foundation (PCRF) in a statement. The PCRF was set up by Arvind Kejriwal. According to the organisation, pro-disclosure factor measures the tendency of an information commission to pass orders in favour of the information seekers. The rating has been done as per the results of a nationwide study of the performance of information commissions. The Awards Secretariat had conducted the study. Assam IC has a score of 98 per cent on this parameter, followed by Chhattisgarh (95 per cent), Arunachal Pradesh, Punjab (both 93 per cent), and Karnataka (91 per cent). Andhra Pradesh IC is at the bottom with pro-disclosure factor of just 32 per cent, said the statement issued by Kapil Bajaj of the RTI Awards Secretariat. Assam has also performed well on the parameter of overall public satisfaction (OPS). It has bagged the fifth spot in a list of 17 information commissions with a score of 36.7 per cent. It means that out of hundred people who filed appeals or complaints with the Assam IC, 36.7 people finally got the information requested for. Some of these interesting findings have already been covered by the media across India. But this is the first-ever study of the performance and functioning of information commissions across India, said the statement. Source: The Assam Tribune Online
  8. As reported at Non-implementation of RTI Act in India?s National Standards Body Qmsservices Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) is India’s National Standards Body. It prepares National Standards and represents India’s interest in international standardization organizations, such as, ISO and IEC. It is natural to expect from BIS that it will create standards in the field of information sharing. But the state of implementation of RTI Act in BIS is very disappointing. Shri Sharad Gupta, IAS is Director General of BIS. He does not seem to be interested in ensuring that information seekers get information in time and as per the provisions of BIS Act. Proactive disclosure of information as required by Section 4 of RTI Act is not complete and updated. There is no doubt a RTI link has been provided on BIS website (BIS Home Page), but it does contain information on all points. Details which have been posted are either incomplete or have not been updated. Some examples: a) Information with reference to Right to Information Act to be furnished to Central Information Commission has not been updated after 31 March 2006. b) List of CPIOs is not updated whenever there is a change. c) Budget estimates and revised budget estimates have been posted for years 2004-2005 & 2005-06 only. No updation has been done after that. d) All office procedures/manuals/guidelines have not been posted. e) Posting details of scientific cadre officers have only been posted, and many of these are incomplete and have not been updated. Like other activities of BIS, time schedule specified in RTI Act has also loss its sanctity in Manak Bhawan. True to its contempt for rules, BIS management has only contempt for RTI Act also. My first RTI was filed on 17 November 2008. I am not sure whether I will get the correct and complete information when I celebrate first anniversary of filing RTI in BIS. During this period, BIS Appellate Authority has given wrong information on one question. I have written to DG BIS about this but he has not even acknowledged my complaint. I have now submitted a complaint to CIC. So far, I have filed about 18 RTIs. In some cases statutory limit is over but no information has been provided. I have filed appeals to BIS Appellate Authority. I simply wonder what BIS, its management and other officers think about RTI Act? They are living a fools’ paradise. One day they will wake up and find themselves on hanging platform. By then it will be too late. Source: Non-implementation of RTI Act in India?s National Standards Body Qmsservices
  9. As reported at www.indianexpress.com on 22 April 2009 Chandigarh : RTI ACT The Central Information Commission (CIC) has directed the Chandigarh Administration to publish reasons for all its decisions that affect the public and ensure proper implementation of the Right to Information Act (RTI). The CIC also asked the Administration to convert all records in electronic format, catalogue, index and computerise them and then put them online for easy accessibility, according to the provisions of Section 4(1)(a) of the RTI Act. The UT has been given three months to comply with the directions. The commission referred to the instructions of the Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions, dated September 21, 2007, on the matter, which say: “The clause (Section 4) also requires the public authority to have its records computerised and connected through a network all over the country. The public authorities are expected to complete the requirements of this clause on top priority.” The directions were issued in response to 52 separate complaints — later clubbed by the CIC — filed against various UT departments by social activist Hemant Goswami and volunteers of the Society for Prevention of Crime and Corruption. In a 12-page order, Information Commissioner M L Sharma ordered: “While formulating important policies or announcing the decisions affecting the public, the public authorities are required to publish all relevant facts about such policies and decisions for the information of the public at large, as mandated under Section 4(1)© of the Act.” The order said such information should be provided free of cost. It read: “...the information disclosed by the public authorities is proactive disclosure and they are required to provide immediate access to this material as and when requested, without the requirement of filing any written request and charging any fee.” The CIC said all public authorities should also take immediate steps to publish detailed, complete and unambiguous information under the 16 categories of Section 4(1)(b) and thereafter update the information as and when necessary, but definitely every year. It ordered: “The notice board(s) in the office of all public authorities should provide as much information as possible and practicable about the disclosures. This information could also be placed in the library or reading room.” It added: “The names, room numbers, telephone numbers, e-mail address of the CPIOs/ACPIOs and appellate authorities may be prominently displaced in each office. If the complete disclosures are also available with any other officer(s) other than the CPIO, ACPIO, their names, designations, room numbers and telephone numbers must be prominently displayed.” Addressing the contentions of the complainant, regarding difficulty in submitting the fee for RTI in many offices, the commission said: “The CPIO should accept the requisite fee without delay and without causing any avoidable inconvenience. Such fee should be acceptable in any form as prescribed under the rules by way of cash against proper receipt or by demand draft or banker’s cheque or Indian postal order. The ‘payee’ or the name of the officer in whose favour payment is to be made should be displayed on the notice board of the public authority.” The commission held that no particular format was necessary to seek information under the RTI Act and no information request could be rejected because it was not made in a particular format.
