Same shall be provided the photocopies of required documents after depositing the prescribed fee @ Rs.2/- per page.

  3. I did not expect to write about the Lalit Modi-Sushma Swaraj controversy again this week. But it is the issue that has dominated media space, public discourse and Parliament for a whole week. Irrespective of the wishes of the Prime Minister and the Government, it will not go away. A news channel broke the story on June 14, 2015. Three days later, I addressed a media conference and read out a statement containing seven questions to the government. The questions could have been answered in a pretty straight forward manner, but that is not the way guilty minds work. No answers were forthcoming and there was deafening silence. The RTI Request… Enter Mr Rayo, a citizen. He copied the seven questions and shot off an RTI Request on June 18, 2015. The Under Secretary (RTI), Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) sent a reply on June 26, 2015. - See more at: Across The Aisle: Sushma Swaraj, RTI and a Parliament question | The Indian Express

  8. I gather from your forum that ‘PIO is not responsible, if the documents asked in the RTI is “MISSING” for whatever reasons’, including his sheer negligence or corruption. Isn’t this provide the easiest way for PIO to escape from his duty and responsibility specially if it occurs due to his callousness negligence or corruption? Can the SIC/CIC accept this PIO’s stand without questioning? Does it not violate the Transparency and Accountability of RTI Preamble?

    Drafting RTI Question

    Hello Sir, My father is a Senior Citizen & a retired person from a private organisation. He has filed a complaint on 24.07.2013 against say' X' working in Ordnance Factory- Chennai for his misconduct against Code of Conduct of Central Government Employees, with his Employer along with reliable documentary evidences. His Employer has also taken up investigation by the Investigation Officer from their Vigilance Dept. Even their Investigation Officer has visited my father & enquired about complaint and asked for some more information which were given by my father. After a month about my father filed an Application under RTI Act-2005 with CPIO for the status of the complaint. CPIO replied that the matter is under consideration of the Competent Authority. Not satisfied with PIO's reply, my father made a First Appeal with FAA & FAA has replied that the matter is still under consideration of the Competent Authority & Final decision is yet to be taken. And also quoted that as per Sec. 8(h) of the Act any information which would impeded the process of Investigation or Apprehension or Prosecution of offenders, is exempted from disclosure.Based on the above Rule, the CPIO on his part has given the correct reply. No interference is called for in the reply of the CPIO. With these remarks the appeal is disposed of. Not satisfied with the FAA's reply my father gone for 2nd Appeal dt. 04.12.2013 with valid reasons such as he himself is the complainant, furnishing evidences to aid & expedite the investigation etc. with CIC. After about 7 months received an intimation from CIC about the hearing of 2nd Appeal on 02.07.2014. Due to age related problems, my father could not attend the hearing. The decision of the CIC vide File No: CIC/RM/A/2014/000103 dt. 02.07.2014 has been forwarded to him (A copy of the decision is enclosed with name & address of the Appellant & Offender blocked for privacy reasons) in which the CIC referred the Hon'ble Supreme Court Order in the case of Girish Ramachandra Deshpande dated October.3.2012 denied the information required by my father quoting that the disclosure of which has no relation ship to any public activity or public interest & disclosure would cause unwarranted invasion of privacy of that individual & the Appellant can not claim those details as a matter of right. Also stated that FAA is correct in his decision given for my father's First Appeal. (referring Sec.8(h)) CIC has not at all considered my father's plea that he himself is the complainant, furnishing documentary evidences in order to aid the Departmental Investigation & to expedite it. My father is not clear what is the case of Girish Ramachandra & the SC's order on that case & interested to know what that case is. My father felt that he could not go for further appeal with the Court. The following points (mainly time frame & Sec.8(h)) are in his mind & he is trying for possible approach with CPIO again with following points: 1. FAA order dated 19.11.2013 wherein he stated that final decision is yet to be taken. 2. As per the CVC notification No:8(1)g/99(3) dt.03.03.1999, the Departmental Investigations should be completed within 6 months from the date of appointment of inquiry Officer. And also against CVC notification No:000/VGL/18 Govt. of India Dt.23.05.2000 giving time frame for various state of investigation/inquiry, the Investigation of my father's complaint might have been completed & Final Report/ Charge Sheet might have been made by now.(My father's Complaint dated 24.07.2013 & it is more than a year now) 3. My father's interest is that the offender should get punishment for his offence. 4. With this point whether my father can approach CPIO afresh to get the information on the status of his complaint?( As Girish Ramachandra's Case is not clear to him). 5. Since my father is naturally aiding the Departmental investigation & helpful with documentary evidences & he himself is the Complainant & an outsider which means that he can't impede the process of investigation. 6. If so how he can frame his question now with the Time Frame given by CVC & Sec.8(h)? Can any of our friends help my father with the required input details for filing Application with CPIO afresh or any suggestion for an alternative solution for which we will be very much thankful. Regards, Deepthi Sudan PS. I am unable to upload the CIC decision dt.02.07.2014 as no option available right now in this Thread & try to do it in due course.

Applicant’s Name: Dr Saba e Fidaus 2. Address: Dr Saba e Fidaus C/O Mohd. Adil 20 State bank Colony, Hapur Road, Meerut. 3. Information required: 1. Why I have been misguided by NBE official by e-mail and personal communication that I should apply for Degree Certificate and I will receive it in two to three weeks? 2. What action will be taken against the concerned official who misguided me? 3. Please provide me copy of citizen charter or any other rule of your board why I cannot get my Degree Certificate before convocation when I have already cleared my exam and I need Degree Certificate for employment abroad (as Provisional Pass Certificate will not be applicable there)? 4.

Name, designation, address and phone no. / email ID of the officer who is responsible for the dispatch of my Degree Certificate. For your kind information, if my queries are not resolved, I add that in addition to RTI Act 2005, I can proceed against public authority and its officers under The Consumer Protection Act 1986 as decided by National Consumer Disputes Redressal Commission, New Delhi on 28-05-2009. Background: A] I received provisional pass Certificate on 18th June 2012 and applied for DNB Degree Certificate as per advice mentioned in e-mail from NBE dated Jun 28, 2012 at 9:40 AM and as advised by Mr. Chetan, NBE official at Facilitation Centre, National Board of Examinations, Medical Enclave, Ansari Nagar, New Delhi on 2nd July 2012 by an application along with Challan of Rs. 3500 and was told that I will receive the Degree Certificate by post within two to three weeks. Because I was assured that I will get Degree Certificate within three weeks I signed a contract for job abroad with salary SR 18000 (≈ Rs 2.5 lac), handed them over my other original Certificates and passport and assured them that I will give DNB Degree Certificate. I tried to enquire about the status after two weeks but there was no reply. When I personally went to the same office and enquired I was told that I will receive Degree Certificate only at convocation. They had no answer when I asked why they misguided me. Now I’m in severe mental agony, having heavy financial loss and my career is at stake. B] PR No: PR / UTHCH / 082170 OBG2 ROLL No. Practical: 1122252164 Passed in April 2012.
