  5. In a well argued order, IC SA has ruled that salary details and official address are disclosable under RTI: Information about salary and official address of public servant is public in nature and shall be disclosed to any person including spouse. Salary details including deductions contained in Salary slip or certificate and residential address of the public servants is personal information, and also third party information. Only after proof of larger public interest such information also can be given…. The spouses do have right to get any information about each other though they are involved in marital disputes/civil, criminal cases filed mutually against them. They can also seek information if in public domain to help them to prove or disprove the charges. But the information about their person unconnected with the discharge of public duties cannot be sought unless they establish a larger public interest. Filing of 50 RTI applications reflects the personal animosity but not public interest. This decision is also important because iot analyses Sec 8(1)(j) threadbare ! Salary and official address are disclosable.pdf
  6. HI Please let me know if the FIR and any notice served to any one are public documents which can be received under RTI Act by applicant. I shall be grateful if relevent CIC decision can be provided in reply.
  7. There is no provision to withdraw an RTI application under RTI Act 2005. Why is that? An anecdote I came across in RTI discussions in a group yesterday: A person filed an RTI application for information from a public utility. Later on, he was made to realize that it would attract attention to some "suo moto" public initiative taken up by the utility to help the public (they were consciously flouting some restrictions imposed on them. It has been lobbying for the past 5 years with the higher authorities to see reason and relax the restrictions imposed in1968 when pressure on the utility was no so high). He tried to withdraw the applicationm but there seemed to be no way of doing it. Directly asking the SIC for directions also did not help. Eventually he received the reply. But meanwhile, the initiative taken by the Public Utility was withdrawn, so that now 30% less people can be serviced, waiting times for service have gone up from four days to seven days, private agents have sprung up to manage lubrication. An agitation is brewing up... The applicant's name is known to all concerned, and a lot of scorn and pity ("He has axed his own feet") is directed at him.... RTI has taken a step backwards. What went wrong here? The applicant's intention was not what things led to: he simply wanted to know the circular under which employees put up tables and chairs in a verandah outside the office and disbursed blank forms from the public half an hour before office opening time. (This was one part of the initiative to provide better service). Innocent query, was it not?
  8. Ensure regular water supply: Consumer court to civic body - The Times of India Ensure regular water supply: Consumer court to civic body Saeed Khan,TNN | Dec 11, 2013, 12.34 AM IST AHMEDABAD: A consumer court has asked Surendranagar-Dudhrej municipality, which is located in one of the water scarcity hit areas of Gujarat, to supply clean and potable water to the city on a regular basis. Besides directing the civic body to supply water on fixed timings, the court has also asked it to keep the city clean by keeping roads garbage free, maintaining streetlights and taking care of other basic amenities for which the municipality collects taxes from citizens. The Consumer Dispute Redressal Forum of Surendranagar district reminded the civic body of its responsibilities and directed it not to remain negligent and show "deficiency in its services", for the citizens paying it taxes have rights to complaint. The order came in response to a complaint filed by a retired person, Kalabhai Bharwad. He had sought cleaning of a waterlogged open plot beside his house, but the civic body officials did not work. After cleaning the plot full of contaminated rainwater on two occasions in July this year, he approached the court asserting his right as a consumer. He sought direction to the civic body to keep the area clean. He also demanded for regular supply of water and that too on fixed timings, a practice that is alien to this area. Bharwad sought compensation for the damage caused to his house due to waterlogging in a nearby plot and for the difficulty he faced due to inaction on part of the municipality. The civic body, on the other hand, blamed him of causing waterlogging by discharging water after domestic use and putting up a hand pump in common plot. It also told the consumer court that it cannot rush to solve Bharwad's problem by leaving other jobs aside. The court ascertained whether he paid taxes regularly. Then it concluded that inaction on part of the civic body to redress Bharwad's repeated complaints amounted to deficiency in service. It directed the municipality to reimburse the amount Bharwad had spent over cleaning the plot. Besides, the court asked the municipality to pay Rs 4,000 to Bharwad for litigation cost and harassment caused by officials' negligence. The court observed that since the issues raised by Bharwad are affecting 2.5 lakh city population, the civic body should be asked to supply clean water to the city on regular basis. (Is it possible that our dear friends can take up similar matter with public authorities since every rupee of "tax paid " then would amount to the "benefactor" becoming a "consumer". In fact combining this with the lucknow development authority judgement would also ensure that the officers responsible for derelection of duty may be held accountable and also the "compensation" paid to the victim may be "deducted" from their salaries). Any comments are welcome..

  12. The Full Bench Orders of the CIC are as below : 56. The respondent’s counsel has tenaciously argued that the appellant’s request for information is not in public interest and that he is seeking this information for extraneous considerations. The question is whether information is disclosable under the RTI Act only in public interest and not otherwise. Suffice to say that RTI Act does not draw a distinction between demand for information in public interest and private interest. The Act provides for disclosure of information to the citizens of India subject to the provisions of section 8, 9, 10 & 11 of the RTI Act. In other words, appellant is not required to establish any larger public interest in his search for all classes of information. He is required to establish public interest only in particular clauses of section 8(1) of the RTI Act. In view of the above, we hold that appellant need not establish public interest while seeking information for all classes of information. CIC_AD_A_2012_000570_M_110032.pdf

    Public Money and RTI

    Public Money and RTI By Dr U B Chaubey in post.jagran.com on Nov 02, 2012 Public Money and RTI Today’s economic world has become far more complex with the distinction between private and public sector getting blurred. Clear cases of private and public sector are becoming a rarity. There are a range of investors from public institutions to sovereign wealth funds in a large private sector company. Then there is also growing need for Public-Private Partnerships (PPPs) in infrastructure and socially relevant sectors. This transformation as well as growing incidences of corruption and misuse of public money calls for introducing relevant changes in the laws and regulations governing the industry sector. Since the public sector is already subject to public accountability and scrutiny, the same needs to be extended to the private sector. Besides promoting good governance ethics, public accountability would also ensure judicious use of public funds, thus bringing in efficiency and higher growth. Good corporate governance ethics including transparency, credibility and due diligence are far more important today than ever before. Large sums of public money have been invested in corporate houses through stock markets. The apprehension of such vast public money being used for extravagant and conspicuous expenditures by the owners of private corporate houses is no longer unfounded. Also, it has been observed that corruption is not a function of ownership. Rather, it is common to both public and private sectors. This definitely makes a case for introducing not only strong checks and balances but also for accountability. Since the public sector is subject to CAG scrutiny, parliamentary accountability and Right to Information (RTI) Act, it makes strong case for extending public accountability and scrutiny to private sector as well. Besides promoting good governance, ethics, increased transparency and accountability would ensure judicious use of public funds thus enhancing productivity and efficiency and would benefit industry as well as economy. Governments across the globe have been entering in a wide array of arrangements in private sector to utilize its capacities and resources in developing and operating some of the key facilities of public service and projects deem important for development of a country. For implementation of projects public money, assets, and critical functions are transferred to private sector/private hands for which privatization or Public Private Partnership (PPP) model is adopted. However, such a transfer needs proper checks and balances between costs and benefits as well as risks and opportunities between public and private partners lest it would result in failures and unmet social needs. Public regulations and accountability would still be relevant over unregulated privatizations and private profits, particularly in a developing country like India in order to make economic growth more inclusive and sustainable. Further for successfully running a PPP project, mutual coordination and cooperation of various government agencies is very important. Also proper regulatory mechanisms and checks and balances are required for sustenance of the project. For long-term sustainability of a project or service, it is very important that good corporate governance practices are followed religiously. Transparent decisions based on ethical practices ensure that the interests of all the stakeholders are protected along with efficient use of resources that results in better products and higher profits. The need for higher investments through PPPs and rising public participation in equity issues make a strong case for proper checks and balances through RTI and public auditing such as CAG regulations must for non-government corporate sector. At present, the RTI Act covers only the government sector, including public sector enterprises (PSEs), broadly based on the premise that the sector uses public money. RTI which was earlier looked at with skepticism for being a hurdle in strategic decision making has now become more acceptable for improving PSEs’ image and thus their functioning. Its role in strengthening corporate governance by promoting fairness, transparency, integrity and accountability are being appreciated. Corporate Decisions based on transparency and accountability and good ethics have become a hallmark of corporate governance all across the world. The public sector has always been subject to transparency and public accountability and RTI has helped it in becoming even more transparent and fair in its processes. High level of public accountability is helping the PSEs in achieving excellence in their fields of operations. The concept of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is closely linked to achieving sustainable and inclusive economic and social development. At the same time, CSR initiatives are a potent tool for goodwill and image building for corporates, thus increasing investors’ confidence in them. For this reason, CSR has become an integral part of corporate governance. The very basis of PSEs’ existence, namely, growth with equity and social justice conforms to the objectives of CSR. Public sector’s initiatives are in line with applicable rules and regulations and thus scope of wasteful expenditures and diversion of funds under CSR is negligible. However, now-a-days NGOs are involved in handling large public funds as agencies for carrying out social welfare programmes. These NGOs are not subject to either RTI or controlled through any statutory / regulatory norms and social audit. In such a case, it is of utmost importance to bring the privates sector and NGOs under public accountability and RTI. Similarly, social service providers, be it private sector undertaking investments under CSR or non-government organizations (NGOs) providing social service using large public funds, should also be brought under RTI. Extension of the RTI Act would bring greater transparency and accountability and also foster greater responsibility towards public welfare. And in case RTI Act is extended to projects having public money it will not be unprecedented as 19 countries have already brought their private sector in utility area under RTI like regulations. A recent Transparency International India Survey has observed that PSEs’ signing an Integrity Pact with the organization has helped in increasing transparency in their procurement process. It has also categorically mentioned that “bribery from the officials of private sector funds is rampant”, and has pointed out that government must bring a strong deterrent tool to curb corruption in private sector thus making a strong case for the private sector to adopt the Integrity Pact in order to bring transparency in procurement process. The idea of extending public accountability to the private and social service sector is to encourage judicious use of resources and enhancing efficiencies in the system, thereby promoting faster, sustainable and balanced economic growth.’

  17. M.P., Bihar, Punjab, Uttarakhand, Delhi, J & K, UP, Rajasthan, Jharkhand, Karnataka, Kerala, Himachal Pradesh have implemented Public Service Guarantee Act to guarantee time-bound delivery of services govt offices. Such a law of Central Govt is pending with Standing Committee of Parliament. These State Acts guarantee as a matter of right to get delivery of govt services in a time bound method by citizens or else concerned employee is penalized for per day delay beyond stipulated time limit. The citizen is also entitled to compensation in some states. I am sure State Information Commissions [sIC] being State entities should be within purview of this act. If this is so, RTI applicants should invoke this act to get decisions from SICs in a time frame declared under this act. I am trying to study some of these State Acts. I am requesting our members to explore this possibility in their states, where appeals/complaints are lingering with SIC for long time. State Acts would be on website of State Govt or can be googled. Feed back and experience of members will be useful to other members also
