  1. Even before waiting for the outcome in the RTI case seeking property details of IAS and IPS officers, the officials of Haryana government have weeded out the files concerned. A division bench of the commission has expressed its displeasure to the officers of government and police department for weeding out the files before the outcome of the cases pending before the Punjab and Haryana High Court and the panel. The division bench consisting State Information Commissioners Hemant Atri and Yoginder Paul Gupta, in their order pronounced on Friday, directed the State Public Information Officers (SPIOs) of the state government’s Personnel Department and Director General of Police office to re-construct the files with the help of the applicants as well as the commission’s secretariat. An RTI activist, PP Kapoor, had approached the Commission after the government did not share property details of the IAS and IPS officers. Apart from Kapoor, officers of Home Department were also present when the case was heard on June 26.. Speaking to The Indian Express on Saturday, Kapoor said, “A large number of IAS and IPS officers don’t submit their property returns to the governments, hence their details are not put up on the websites. The exercise of weeding out files even before completion of hearing into the matter shows that the government is not serious in disclosing property details of the IAS and IPS officers.” In response to Kapoor’s RTI application filed in 2009, the state government had sought consent of IAS officers to share the information but 33 IAS officers had refused for the same while 36 bureaucrats had given their consent.

  6. 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.

  8. [h=1]2 members face ire for attack on RTI activist[/h] Two newly elected councillors in Jaitu, one each of the SAD and BJP, today faced a massive protest for their alleged involvement in a brutal attack on a RTI activist. Seeking justice for Dr Harish Chander, attacked on January 31 in Jaitu, the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) supporters and workers from various parts of Punjab assembled here today. Accompanied by members of a local action committee, the AAP leaders and supporters took out a march in the town. They also staged a dharna in front of the police station, accusing the personnel of shielding the two prime accused. Dr Chander was an independent candidate in the Jaitu municipal council poll from Ward No. 14. He was attacked after he distributed posters among the residents citing alleged corruption in the civic body. He suffered multiple fractures, alleged Himmat Singh Shergill, an advocate who had contested the Lok Sabha elections on the AAP ticket from Anandpur Sahib. AAP spokesman Kultar Singh alleged that though Dr Harish had named the two accused for the attack, the police took no action due to their political links. The police claimed four persons had already been arrested, but the AAP contended a relatively mild and innocuous case was registered against unidentified culprits.

  9. [h=1]6 lakh tonnes of grain goes waste in Punjab[/h] A whopping 6 lakh metric tonnes of foodgrain has been rendered unfit for human consumption in Punjab. The foodgrain was rotting in open storage spaces and plinths at various places in the state for a long time. The grains' deteriorated significantly for want of adequate storage in warehouses. In fact, this stock has been certified as fit for cattle feed. Each year, Punjab faces a problem of plenty with excess foodgrain and limited storage space. The Supreme Court in August 2010 had observed that in a country where people were starving, it’s a crime to waste even a single grain of food. The Punjab government had covered some ground to check the problem. It has added 40 lakh tonnes of covered storage capacity over the past three years, and it is likely that the practice of open storage may end this year. The rapid movement of foodgrain from Punjab to other consumer states also provides hope for better storage of fresh stock. Foodgrain has moved out of state much faster—a jump of over 15 per cent—in the current year, which means warehouses are being cleared of existing stocks much more rapidly to accommodate fresh arrivals. In 2014-15, on a monthly average, nearly 20 lakh tonnes foodgrain was moving from Punjab to consumer states. The Punjab and Haryana High Court in Chandigarh on Monday took up a public interest litigation that sought a bar on the practice of storing foodgrain in the open and on plinths. The court has issued notices for March 26 to the Punjab government, the Food Corporation of India and five other procurement agencies. The petition, filed by advocate H C Arora, mentions the permission recently granted by the Central government to auction more than 6 tonnes of damaged wheat stocked with different agencies in Punjab. The petition seeks to do away with the unscientific and inappropriate system of foodgrain storage in open warehouses and plinths. Arora had sought information under the RTI Act from these agencies.

  10. CWP No.11284 of 2014 (O&M) A bare combined reading of above said information sought by the petitioner vide Annexure P-1, Section 24(1) as well as Section 24(4) of the RTI Act would show that the information sought by the petitioner was not exempted and the Intelligence Wing of the respondent-State was duty bound to supply the information sought by the petitioner. Since, respondent No.1 has misdirected itself while completely ignoring the true import of provisions of Section 24 of RTI Act, therefore, the impugned order dated 22.05.2014 (Annexure P-8) is patently illegal and the same cannot be sustained In view of the above said provisions of the RTI Act, in case respondent No.2 was of the view that the information sought by the petitioner was pertaining to theIntelligence Wing, the Public Information Officer of respondent No.2 was dutybound to transfer the application of the petitioner to the concerned departmentunder intimation to the petitioner. Even this much was not done in the presentcase. Further, the respondents have been taking different stands at differentpoints of time as per their suitability. The only stand taken in Annexure P-3 dated 27.06.2013 was that the Intelligence Wing was exempted from the provisions of RTI Act under Section24(1) thereof. However, in the short reply filed by respondents No. 2 to 4, the stand taken was that information sought by the petitioner was not available on record of the Intelligence Wing. When a pointed question was put up to the State counsel in this regard, he had no answer and rightly so, because it was a matter of record. The respondents have taken contradictory stands at different points of time. No other argument was raised. Considering the peculiar facts and circumstances of the case noted above, coupled with the reasons aforementioned, this Court is of the considered view that since the impugned order (Annexure P-8) dated 22.05.2014 passed by respondent No.1 has been found to be patently illegal, the same is hereby set aside. The matter is remitted back to respondent No.1 to pass a fresh order in accordance with law. Let an appropriate order be passed within a period of three months from the date of receipt of a certified copy of this order. Resultantly,with the above said observations made and directions issued, the instantpetition stands allowed, however, with no order as to costs..

Govt staff leave info personal, can’t be disclosed: Punjab panel The Punjab State Information Commission has rejected a plea seeking details on ex-India leave of more than 30 days by government employees during the past 10 years of service. The rationale is that such leave, as per norms, constituted a personal matter and had no bearing on the state exchequer. The Right to Information (RTI) applicant from Sangrur, Prem Kumar Rattan — who had sought the employees’ applications for leave, the sanction, and copies of their passports and visa — also faces legal action as the commission has asked the senior superintendent of police (SSP) of Sangrur to register a case against him for furnishing a false undertaking after he had been refused information of the same nature earlier by the SIC. Information commissioner Surinder Awasthi pointed out that the applicant was aware of the case having been disposed of earlier by him, and had thus requested that the case now not be assigned to him this time. The latest decision refers to a 2012 judgment of the Supreme Court, which says that salary details, including deductions, copies of memos, show-cause notices, inquiry proceedings and income tax returns, fall in the category of personal information, because disclosure of these would amount to invasion of privacy. “The information sought qualifies to be far more personal than those mentioned in the case decided by the Supreme Court,” says Awasthi’s decision, reiterating that the public information officer (PIO) concerned was not expected to provide information exempted under section 8(1) of the RTI Act. While it must be mentioned here that the state vigilance bureau is investigating alleged misuse of ex-India leave by government employees, the SIC order says that if information related to ex-India leave were to be furnished, someone could even ask for leave availed within India, and the period thereof could be reduced or increased in the RTI pleas; resulting in no end to such requests and little time for the government departments to perform their core duties. Explaining its express rationale, the judgment says the employees had taken leave for personal visits and there was no resultant burden on the state exchequer. The availing of leave, whichever kind, due to an employee is governed by service rules which fall under the expression “personal information”, disclosure of which has no relationship with public activity or public interest, it says. The RTI Act, the apex court verdict says, should not be allowed to be misused or abused, nor be converted into a tool of oppression or intimidation of honest officers.

  20. ***** use Kargil relief funds for cars, ACs, nappies GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS running Indian Red Cross Society branches in Punjab used funds amounting to lakhs, meant for relief to people affected by war or natural disasters, to buy cars, ACs, cellphones, furniture - and even nappies for their babies. Documents of expenses between 1999 and 2006, obtained through the RTI Act by Ludhiana-based NGO Resurgence India, also show that funds were used to pay hotel and restaurant bills and newspaper bills. The documents suggested money collected for relief to those hit by the Kargil war, Orissa supercyclone and Gujarat earthquake never reached the victims. Grants from central ministries were also misused or diverted. Documents of just three districts - Ludhiana, Patiala and Sangrur - show a massive diversion of funds in what could be a statewide, perhaps nationwide, scandal. Deputy commissioners (DCs) who headed the Red Cross branches in these districts spent on things completely unrelated to Red Cross objectives. Some expenses, if at all, should have been met by the state government. Hitender Jain, general secretary of Resurgence India, said: "The DCs have made Red Cross their fiefdom... The misuse of Red Cross funds merits a thorough investigation...." The Hindustan Times's Chandigarh edition reported the scam on Sunday. Within hours, Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal ordered divisional commissioners to hold an inquiry and submit their reports within 15 days. Indian Red Cross Society secretary general S.P. Agarwal told HT on the phone from Delhi: "They (DCs) cannot spend Red Cross money for government or personal expenses... the governor should be informed." With branches throughout the country, the Indian Red Cross Society is managed under an Act of Parliament. At the national level, the President heads it while the Union health minister is its chairperson. At the state level, the governor heads it and the chief minister is the vice-president. The DC heads the branch at the district level. A former DC of Patiala, Tejveer Singh, said at times a DC is forced to meet government expenses by spending from Red Cross funds. "This is because of the lack of funds provided by the government to the districts. On a day-to-day basis, the DCs face this problem and the only way out is to use society's fund," he said. Right after Tejveer's tenure, for example, the Patiala Red Cross bought two rumalas for Rs 4,200 for Prince Charles and his wife to offer at Gurdwara Sahib. In 2002, the Sangrur branch spent Rs 45,000 as "donation for election purpose". The Ludhiana branch provided two cars to the DC and his wife. ***** use Kargil relief funds for cars, ACs, nappies - Yahoo! India News

    Calamity in Punjab? Don’t donate to CM

    As reported by Manish Tiwari at hindustantimes.com on 13 June 2009 Several crores received as donations for the Punjab Chief Minister’s Relief Fund — set up to help victims of calamities like floods, fire and serious accidents in 1954 — were misused or embezzled over the last 25 years. Unspecified crores of rupees were disbursed by successive chief ministers as Diwali handouts for office staff, their office expenses, staff honorarium, grants for foreign tours, press clubs, bar associations, sangeet sammelans, medical treatment of MLAs, sports clubs, etc. Money was also loaned to individuals and clubs. Official records show that from 1984 to 1993, when terrorism was at its peak in Punjab, Rs 28.46 lakh was reportedly embezzled. Successive Punjab governments did nothing despite repeated objections from auditors. The Punjab Chief Minister’s Relief Fund was established in 1954, but functioned without rules for almost 55 years. Chief Secretary Ramesh Inder Singh said: “Since the money is disbursed directly under the signature of the chief ministers, I would not like to comment.” All this came to light recently after a Ludhiana-based NGO, Resurgence India, obtained records pertaining to the fund under the Right To Information (RTI) Act. This is the same NGO that exposed misappropriation of Red Cross funds by deputy commissioners in Punjab. After the Red Cross scandal was revealed by HT in December 2007, the Punjab government instituted a high-level probe. Unhappy with the subsequent inquiry report, the Punjab and Haryana High Court recently set up a committee of two former judges to probe the matter. The money with the Punjab CM’s Relief Fund was Rs 48.72 crore from 2002-03 to 2007-08, implying that on an average Rs 10 crore was collected and spent annually, records show. This money mostly came from individual donors. As per the minutes of a meeting on July 17, 1973, the fund was meant primarily for relief measures. But, in the absence of proper rules, these minutes were the only guiding force till January 14, 2009, when new guidelines were notified. On November 11, 1977, the government issued an order with the concurrence of the then chief minister Parkash Singh Badal (who happens to be in power now too) that prohibited grants from the fund to government employees as they “cannot be said to be persons in distress” and because it “smacks of favouritism”. RTI records show the Punjab government could not account for Rs 28.46 lakh received between April 1984 and March 1993 despite auditors raising objections for years. The auditors raised the matter in 10 reports between 1993 and 2006, but the government kept mum. It was only in 2004 when the government found itself cornered that it claimed that the records were destroyed in a fire, which broke out after a bomb blast at the Punjab Civil Secretariat on August 31, 1995. But, according to Chandigarh Assistant Superintendent of Police Madhur Verma in a reply to another RTI application on June 4, 2009, no first information report or daily diary report was registered about any fire or destruction of office records in 1995. The only police case registered was regarding the assassination of Chief Minister Sardar Beant Singh. A copy of the first information report obtained by Hindustan Times reveals the blast occurred outside the Secretariat when Beant Singh was getting into his car. There was no mention of any fire or destruction of records in the CM’s office. “The claim that records were destroyed appears to be an alibi. Moreover, why did the government not look into the issue in 1993 itself when auditors raised objections for the first time?” asked Hitender Jain, general secretary, Resurgence India. Former Punjab CM Rajinder Kaur Bhattal faced a vigilance case for almost seven years for allegedly embezzling Rs 20 lakh from the fund during her tenure in 1996. A Chandigarh court framed charges against her. However, after the Parkash Singh Badal government was formed in 2007, the state vigilance bureau last year withdrew the case against Bhattal, saying the receipts pertaining to the Rs 20 lakh had been found.
