  1. Dear Esteemed Members of this August Forum, The undersigned filed a application under RTI Act 2005 on 20th July 2014 seeking information from International Amusement Limited (Promoter of Appu Ghar) Gurgaon who have been substantially financed by HUDA (arm of state government) by way of getting land worth minimum Rs 826 Crores(as per Circle rate) at the cost of peanuts (Rs.94.5 Crore for thirty three years extendable by another 33 years). The Appu Ghar rejected undersigned RTI application and then Complaint was filed before Hon'ble SIC. The Hon'ble CIC of SIC heard the case in Dec 2014/Jan 2015 and referred the matter to larger bench. Yesterday, the undersigned made his oral submission which are reproduced below and three learned, famous advocates made their submissions on behalf of Respondents. They termed undersigned Complaint frivolous and made lengthy submission how they are not public authority because they are not substantially funded. My submission made orally are reproduced below: M/s International Amusement Ltd. wrote a letter dated26th June 2009, to CM Haryana suggesting setting up of an Urban EntertainmentCentre at Gurgaon, primarily an Amusement Park with total land requirement of70 acres. The Company also sent details like concept booklet, along with area,revenue and cost statement that subsequently turned out to be a blueprint forinviting EOI/BIDS. As per Gurgaon – Manesar Development Plan, 2021,notified in June 2006, Sector 29 /Gurgaon was designated as commercial sectorand the land use of Sector 29 had been frozen. The letter dated 26th June 2009written by International Amusement Limited to CM Haryana had its impact . Anofficial noting by State Town Planner (N) advocating the need of an AmusementPark, was put up on 1st July 2009. Thereafter, the proposal was endorsed on 1stJuly 2009 itself. Meetings were held in quick succession– on 7th July, 10thJuly and then recommendations finalized for inviting Request for Proposal (RFP)on 17th July 2009. An internal Committee was constituted for determiningthe procedure and recommending bid price and utilization of the area as under:- Bid Price of the land was calculated as under on thebasis of the report of LAO ,Gurgaon Sectors Area Land Cost (Per Acre) Administrative Charges External Cost(Per Acre) Total Cost (in Acres) Per Acre development charges in Lakh PerAcre 29 25 39.80Lakh 3.98 Lakh 249.92 Lakh 293.7 Lakh 7342.5 53-A 17 32.94 Lakh 3.29 Lakh 62.48 Lakh 98.71 Lakh 1678.07 52-A 16 32.94 Lakh 3.29 lakh 38.23 Lakh 62.48 Lakh 1579.36 Gross Total 10599.93 Ten percent of the area of Sector 29 allowed for retail/shopping facilities related to Amusement Park activities with FAR of 1.5.Total Available area for retail/shopping facilities comes to 3.75 acres. The Land Acquisition Officer’s (LAO) report was madethe basis for evaluating cost of land even though Collector Rates for the year2009-10 were available. The Collector Rates were Rs. 26.22 crore’s per acre forSector 29. The land cost for 25 acres in this sector thereby comes to Rs. 605/-crores. In Sector 52-A, Collector Rates were Rs. 13 crores per acre thus costof 17 acres would come to Rs. 221 crores. Therefore, valuation of the totalland of 42 acres at Collector Rates comes to the tune of Rs.826 crores which isalmost 8 times the valuation of Rs 106 crores recommended by the said Committee. Recommendations of the Committee were accepted by ChiefMinister, which were conveyed by Chief Administrator (CA), Haryana UrbanDevelopment Authority (HUDA) to Administrator, HUDA, Gurgaon on 6th Aug 2009,also thereby asking the Administrator to float Tenders. Tenders were floated on 11th Aug 2009 for 58 acres landthrough some leading newspapers and at the same time the said Committee startedworking on Request for Proposal (RFP) document. Meanwhile, it was discoveredthat 16 acres out of 33 acres in sector 52-A was under litigation, hence remaining17 acres was made part of the Amusement Park, by converting the land use fromopen space to Amusement Park. A pre-bid conference was held on 28th Aug 2009 whichwas attended by seven firms/companies. However, by the extended closing datei.e. 20th Oct 2009, only one bid – of M/S International Amusement Ltd wasreceived. After examining lone Technical bid, Committee recommended furtherextension by 45 days. However, this extension was restricted to the sevenfirms/companies who had participated in the pre-bid conference on 28th Aug2009. Last date was kept as 19th March 2010. On its request, M/S InternationalAmusement Ltd was allowed to revise its Technical & Financial Bids. By 19thMarch 2010 as extended date, one more Bid – of UNITECH Ltd was received, whichwas rejected due to non-fulfillment of technical criteria – (a) not possessingminimum 10 years experience in amusement park activity and (b) less thanbenchmarked Rs. 50 crores aggregate turnover during the last five years. Finally, again only single bid remained for competitivebidding – of M/S International Amusement Ltd, which was accepted and the EOIand Concession were awarded to them in May 2010. Entire exercise was thusmanipulated, twisted and tailor-made only to accommodate M/S InternationalAmusement Ltd. During the whole exercise no feasibility study wascarried out to ascertain the need for an Amusement Park, like where to belocated, components of the amusement park as such, land requirement, projectcost, whether to be set up in public, private or PPP regime, whether activitiescould be split into two or more parts on more than one location. The entireexercise is driven by pre-determination by Govt. to hand over the land to M/SInternational Amusement Ltd. Open space provided for and frozen as such inDevelopment Plan has been converted into Amusement Park, which has commercialcomponent as well, without following the procedure of amendment in theDevelopment Plan regulating sector 52-A. Same way, frozen commercial land usein sector 29 has been tampered with to convert into Amusement Park land use. Land earmarked for Bus stand over the 25 acres land insector 29 has been converted into Amusement Park land use, thereby ignoringlarger public interest. Land valued at least Rs. 826 crores approximately hasbeen handed over to the private party for pittance namely Rs 94.5 Crore, for along period of 33 years, including provisions favoring the Concessionaire toexit after five years besides off- loading stakes up to fifty percent.Therefore, there is a huge loss to the public exchequer. Representations by Citizens Council and ResidentWelfare Federation, pointing out the irregularities and illegalities beingcommitted by the Government causing huge losses to public exchequer for landvaluing Rs 3000 crores at market rate and even starred question raised inAssembly Session on the same, did not deter Government from committing this fraud. It is not a Concession under PPP mode granted by theGovernment to the Concessionaire rather it is a case of Government land handedover to private party for a long period on Lease, under the garb ofPPP/Concession. Such huge chunks of prime land have been delivered on the basisof single bid. In that case also UNITECH’s ineligible Bid was used as sham.Same modus-operandi was repeated in this case also to hand over Government landacquired for public purpose at public expense to private companies at apittance, causing huge financial losses to public exchequer. M/s International Amusement Ltd is a public authoritybecause land valuing at Rs 826 Crore has been given at Rs 94.5 Crores for 33years. Had the HUDA sold this land at circle rate (which ismuch lower than market value of Rs 3000 Crore) at Rs 826 Crore, it would haveearned interest @ 10% per year (Bank rate) Rs.826 Crore =Rs 8.26 Crore X 33years= Rs 272.58 which is 300% of license fee paid by the InternationalAmusement Ltd thus there is substantial funding to the tune of Rs 178 Crore. Thisqualifies to be a public authority under RTI Act 2005 as more than 200%subsidy/concession/grant has been provided and it meets the criteria of 95% mentionedin Thallapalam case by Hon’ble SC to make a “body” a public authority under RTIAct 2005. If the HUDA had not granted the land than this projectwould not “exist” and as such it qualifies to be public authority under RTI Act2005 (As per Hon’ble SC judgment in Thallapalam case) Public Purpose:This land was acquired for making a commercial space with open space provided for and frozen as such inDevelopment Plan has been converted into Amusement Park, which has commercialcomponent as well, without following the procedure of amendment in theDevelopment Plan regulating sector 52-A. Same way, frozen commercial land usein sector 29 has been tampered with to convert into Amusement Park land use. Land earmarked for Bus stand over the 25 acres land insector 29 has been converted into Amusement Park land use which was acquiredfor public function. This amusement park/facility is a public function and any“body” which is performing “public function” is an “other authority” asenvisaged under article 12 of the Constitution of India. Kindly refer toHon’ble SC judgment in Thalapalam case at para 13) in which it was held thatany instrumentality which is covered under Article 12 of the Constitution ofIndia is a public authority under RTI Act 2005. The land was handed over/given possession on 3rdMarch 2011 against payments in following manner: DATE AMOUNTRECEIVED FROM APPU GHAR, IAL 30.07.2010 236250000/- Approximately 30.08.2012 40000000/- Approximately 19.11.2012 101700000/- Approximately 21.12.2012 70875000/- Approximately 04.01.2013 70875000/- Approximately 28.06.2013 30000000/- Approximately 11.07.2013 47130525/- Approximately 01.08.2013 156332859/- Approximately 19.08.2013 21458930/-Approximately 21.12.2014 100000000/- Approximately GROSS TOTAL 870000000/- INR Approximately Kindly refer to Subhash Chandra Agrawal Vs Delhi GolfClub wherin the Central Government leased out a huge chunk of land measuring179 acres in the heart of Delhi city to the club at hugely concessional rate.The Central Information Commission in its decision held the lease out of primelocation land as indirect financing to the club and declared the club a publicauthority in term of Section 2 (h) (d) (i) of the Act. I further submitted that on 08.10.2012, the Central Information Commission on complaint no. 001345of 2014 titled Sukhdev Singh V/s. Chandigarh Golf Club, Chandigarh has notedthat there is a vast difference between the monthly rent being paid by theChandigarh Golf Club and the commercial rent that the premises could fetch inthe open market, hence being indirectly financed and controlled by theChandigarh Administrator, the Chandigarh Golf Club is the public authorityunder Section 2 (h) (ii) of the Act. Similarly, the complainant• citeddecisions dated 16.09.2013 and 01.07.2013 of Karnataka Information Commissionwherein it has been decided that Mysore Race Club Ltd., Mysore and BangaloreTurf Club, to whom the Government has allotted land on concessional rates arepublic authorities. I also draw Hon’ble Division Bench of State InformationCommission, Haryana in case number 115 of 2014 titled Harinder dhingra Vs GreatIndia Nautanki Company (KoD) declaring Great India Nautanki Company (KoD) as apublic authority under RTI Act 2005 in which the facts and matrix of the caseis similar to the instant case and as such the International Amusement ltd isalso a public authority under RTI Act 2005. Accordingly, the complainant prayed the Commission thatthe Kindgom of Dreams be declared "Public Authority" as stipulatedunder Section 2 (h)(d) (i) (ii) of the RTI Act, 2005." UNQUOTE The Hon'ble Commission has reserved its order. I am looking for valuable comments/suggestions/shortcomings on the above submissions made by undersigned as I am told that M/S Appu Ghar is moving a application for "re-hearing" of the case. Harinder Dhingra

  3. Appellant had sought information on two points: (a) The assets and liabilities declared by Mr. U.K.Sinha, Chairman, SEBI. (b) The total present emoluments of Mr.Sinha. The CPIO denied for point (a) stating it a personal information and provided in fiduciary capacity hence exempted. For point (b) CPIO informed that this information is available in public domain. The appellant submitted that Mr.Sinha gave up a job of over Rs.3 crores per annum to become chairman of SEBI as emoluments of Rs. 36 lakhs per annum. It was done to dilute the cases of some of major offenders on the capital market. Hence information should be disclosed in public interest.

  5. Dear Sir, As per provisions under RTI, many public sector entities have nominated PIO/APIOs etc at various levels to address RTI related issues.

  13. Prime Minister Narendra Modi has rejected a proposal to set up statutory public grievance commissions at the Centre and states to hear appeals from people whose complaints to the government had remained unheard, or unresolved. Instead, the prime minister’s office (PMO) wants the responsibility to be passed on to information commissions set up under the RTI act or a new ombudsman created by an executive order rather than a law. RTI activists oppose the move to burden the information commissions with hearing public grievances too. Read at: CIC officers to play dual role?

  23. Every PA wants to get out of the clutches of RTI Act. It is viewed by the personnel who are manning it is a cumbersome, inconvenient and unnecessary. As the efforts to get out of Access Law are mounted up, the people should understand the importance of information. In fact,the people did not start using the access right in a very efficient manner, as it should have been. If that begins the association of officers would come out with agitation and processions against the law terming that it was leading to harassment. When they are spending public money why not they are accountable and transparent about it is the moot question. Anybody trying to run away from answering this question should be deemed to be corrupt and interested in autocracy. They do not deserve to be entrusted with fiduciary responsibilities. The strict implementation of law and conscious exercise of the rights by active citizen will further expose the deep rooted interests of the public servants in safeguarding the public information. From this one can imagine how the administration is being run with these people all these years.
