  2. INDORE: In Shyam Benegal-directed 'Well Done Abba', a well dug by government 'goes missing' from a village. Closer home, Palia Haider, a village in Hatod tehsil of Indore district, has mysteriously 'gone missing' from government land records and maps. Unlike the movie, where villagers file an FIR to 'get the well back', It took an RTI activist to trace the missing village of 400-odd houses, laying bare skullduggery. It emerged from an RTI that officials of registrar office in Indore removed the village from land records to benefit few builders. The act, which sent district administration brass in a tizzy, came just before revision of guideline rate for 2014-15 and the exercise was meant to ensure that the rate did not surge upward. The village is 25 km from Indore city. Before revision of guideline rate for 2014-15, lands of patwari halka no. 41 and khasra number 677/1, 677/5, 677/9 and 678/1 went missing from land records. "Government suffered loss of revenue by way of sale and purchase of the land because of brazen act of unscrupulous elements," said Rajendra K Gupta, who had filed RTI. He said government suffered revenue loss in form of stamp duty and registry fee.

    supply of records.

    Hello, whether applications reced for vacant posts can be proviced or not by the p.i.o
  9. The orders of the CIC are as under : File No.CIC/SA/A/2014/000004 56. The Commission recommends the Government of India, states and Union Territories, besides the respondent authority in this case, to take necessary steps to enforce the right to information, i.e., forcing the private hospitals to give medical records of the patients on day to day basis, because this daily disclosure will prevent undesirable practices of altering records after damage caused to patient. Forcing the private hospitals to provide daily wise medical records will also act as a check on some hospitals from resorting to extortionist, inhuman and ruthless business of prescribing unnecessary diagnostic tests, unnecessary surgical operations, caesarean deliveries, unwarranted angioplasties, inserting stents, without need, or of substandard nature, or putting low quality stent while collecting price of high quality stent, and several such malpractices amounting to medical terrorism, etc. They should not be allowed to such malpractices with all impunity and get away without any legal consequences as if there is an absolute immunity. The Government, Medical Council of India and the health regulatory has to see that licence to practice medicine will not become licence to kill and extort and come to the rescue of helpless patients. CIC_SA_A_2014_000004_T_151517.pdf
  10. The orders of the CIC are as under : CIC/KY/A/2014/001348SA 3. This is a case where a wife is seeking the information about the medical records of her husband, who alleged to have physically tortured her due to his mental illness. The appellant and her brother alleged that husband and his relatives have suppressed the truth about his mental health to cheat her into marriage, which proved a hell for her thereafter. 4. It is a fact that husband was treated at respondent’s hospital as borne by medical record which she was asking for. Mrs Jyoti Jeena sought for copy of all the papers, documents, records, old reports, case history reports, opinions/advices, prescriptions etc., available in the file/folder maintained by the IHBAS in respect of about Sanjay Singh (husband). The PIO claimed that the information sought being psychiatric medical record of another person and hence exempted under Section 8(1)(e) of the RTI Act 2005. Similarly it is the duty of CPIO, First Appellate Authority and Information Commission to examine the right to life of the appellant and public interest in seeking the enforcement of her right to life which include right to divorce under legally permitted circumstances. If the record shows that appellant’s husband ‘has been incurably of unsound mind, or has been suffering continuously or intermittently from mental disorder of such a kind and to such an extent that the petitioner cannot reasonably be expected to live with the respondent’, she is entitled to relief from that kind of life through divorce. If the disease of her husband falls under any category mentioned in the Explanation under the clause of Section 13 of Hindu Marriage Act, she will be entitled to justice. Thus there is a larger public interest in demanding the information about medical record of her husband who is treated at respondent authority. The Right of Privacy of husband is an essential component of right to life envisaged by Article 21. The Supreme Court rightly said: The right however, is not absolute and may be lawfully restricted for the prevention of crime, disorder or protection of health or morals or protection of rights and freedom of others. Hence the appellant is entitled to know the disease her husband is suffering from to protect her right, prevention of crime of cruelty against her. The appellant being wife of the person whose medical reports she is seeking, makes the plea of privacy of the husband weak as she is legitimate family member whose consent will matter when husband cannot decide due to mental illness. the Commission holds that there is a larger public interest that require disclosure of medical records of a patient as mandated under Section 8(1)(j) and directs the respondent authority to furnish the information about the medical records of her husband to the extent she needed to establish the disease he was suffering from, its impact, continuity and incurability or curability, whatever it is along with necessary certified copies to protect her interest/right to secure divorce under the Hindu Marriage Act, to prevent crime of beating or cruelty against her allegedly being perpetrated or apprehended to have been perpetrated by her husband because of mental illness, shall be provided. CIC_KY_A_2014_001348-SA_M_151923.pdf
  11. The Orders of the CIC are as under : The Commission observes that this is a case where file required was either not maintained or lost. The Commission felt that when the respondent authority lost certain records, filing of FIR will not serve any purpose. The authority should come up with policy and action in alternative. The Commission directs the respondent authority to report the same within one month from the date of receipt of this order. The appellant wanted to know the reasons why the file is not traceable. Thus Commission directs the respondent authority to furnish the reason, circumstances behind absence of file and also explain efforts to find same within 15 days from the date of receipt of order. CIC_DS_A_2013_001858_T_151401.pdf
  12. During the course of inspection or before and after inspection, an applicant has every right to take notes and extracts from the documents or records. He can further ask for certified copies of any such documents or record (which includes manuscripts, file, microfilm, microfiche or facsimile copy of a document, any reproduction of image embodied in such microfilm, or any other material produced by a computer or any other device as per Section 2(i). Copies of unsigned documents shall be provided duly certified that these are unsigned documents. Ref decision – (Surya Prakash v Land and Building Deptt. DDA, CIC/WB/ (A)/2006/270 DT. 29.5.2006)

  15. [h=1]CIC directs Delhi Women Commission to disclose rape records[/h] New Delhi: Amid outrage over the interview of a December 16 gangrape convict, CIC on Wednesday directed the Delhi Commission of Women to make public records of rapes committed in the national capital with stern conditions to ensure that identities of victims are not disclosed. "The Commission observes that the records relating to rape victims cannot be totally blocked from sharing for research purposes on the ground of personal information under Section 8(1)(j) of the RTI Act. "When it is possible to separate information that can be given from that cannot be given, the PIO has to invoke doctrine of severability to facilitate the information," The Commission observes that the records relating to rape victims cannot be totally blocked from sharing for research purposes on the ground of personal information under Section 8(1)(j) of the RTI Act. Information Commissioner Sridhar Acharyulu said. The case relates to Baladevan Rangaraju who claimed that he wanted information on rape victims for research purpose and personally requested the Secretary of the Department, who after knowing the purpose, refused to furnish the records. Rangaraju said information sought by him had to be maintained by the Department according to Delhi Commission for Women Act, 1994. The Commission expressed concern over the issue of the protection of privacy of the rape victims and contended that it was not possible to separate the names of the victims from various documents including medico-legal case reports. "Facilitate inspection of the records to the authorised female representative of the appellant with an assurance that they shall not bring any electronic device like video records, mobile, camera etc, block out the names and personal details of the victim and accused by whitener on the photostat copies," Sridhar said setting stern guidelines for disclosure of sensitive information. He said each paper shall be verified by the officials of Delhi Women Commission to ensure that nowhere victims' names and private details are revealed before certifying. "The appellant is directed to enter a non-disclosure agreement with an undertaking that he/his representative will not reveal information about the personal details of the victims and the accused and that they shall be responsible for any such revelation through the documents shared," he said. Acharyulu warned that any such disclosure would not only result in the breach of undertaking but also an offence under the Indian Penal Code. "It shall be responsibility of the respondent authority to secure records, and the appellant shall share the copy of the research report with the Women's Commission and this Commission," the Commissioner said in his order.

  19. [h=1]Coal Scam - CIC allows coal ministry to withhold records[/h] In a surprise argument, the coal ministry has said information related to minutes of screening committee meetings on coal block allocation cannot be made public as it will impede the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) probe, a plea allowed by the Central Information Commission (CIC) even though the record itself is available on the ministry’s website. An RTI applicant, Meenu, had approached the ministry seeking information regarding the minutes of screening committee meetings on coal block allocations. The ministry had replied that the CBI has registered a preliminary enquiry regarding alleged irregularities in the allocation of coal blocks and refused information citing Section 8(1)(h) of the RTI Act. The said section allows a public authority to withhold such information as may impede the process of investigation, apprehension and prosecution of an accused. However, the minutes of screening committee meetings on coal block allocations are available on the website of the coal ministry. Information commissioner Mr Yashovardhan Azad, an ex-Indian Police Service (IPS) officer, ruled in favour of coal ministry in the matter, saying, “The respondent stated that the files concerned have been seized by CBI for enquiry into the allocation of coal blocks and the same is pending, which is why information to the appellant cannot be provided.” Mr Azad said that “After hearing the respondents and on perusal of records, the commission accepts the plea of CPIO (Central Public Information Officer)/FAA (First Appellate Authority).” Recently, justice Vibhu Bakhru of Delhi high court had rejected a similar order by CIC allowing a public authority to withhold information under Section 8(1)(h) of the RTI Act without giving justification. Justice Bakhru had said that “merely citing that the information is exempted under Section 8(1)(h) would not absolve the public authority from discharging its onus.” In a stern order, he said “It is apparent from a bare perusal of the CIC’s order that it does not indicate the reasons that persuaded (it) to uphold the view of the public authority that the disclosure of information sought by the petitioner would impede the prosecution of the petitioner. He added that “Neither the FAA nor the CIC has questioned the public authority as to how the disclosure of information would impede the prosecution.” Read More: http://coal.steelguru.com/india/18892/coal_scam_cic_allows_coal_ministry_to_withhold_records
  20. EWS medical records aren't public info: SIC GURGAON: Ruling that medical records of patients belonging to the economically weaker section are "personal information", the state information commission has ordered HUDA and city-based private hospitals not to disclose them. "Medical records are personal information, exempt from disclosure under Section 8(1) (j) of the RTI Act," reads state information commissioner Urvashi Gulati's order on January 10. The info panel's order came in the wake of a complaint by a city-based RTI activist, Aseem Takyar, against "the half-baked and unconfirmed information" provided by the HUDA on his RTI query, seeking information on details pertaining to free beds in three city-based private hospitals. But, the state information commission has ruled, "In this case, no large public interest has been established by the complainant to warrant disclosure of information." Takyar had filed his RTI query on September 14, 2013, and got a response from HUDA about a year later. Dissatisfied with it, he had filed a complaint on September 15 last year before the commission, following which an inquiry was ordered on December 1. Takyar is now planning to move the Punjab and Haryana high court against the state info panel's order. "We will file a petition in the high court so that a mechanism can be established to ensure that the patient details provided by the hospitals can be verified. We don't want to access any identification number or invoices, but only want to check the authenticity of the info by the hospitals," he said.

  21. New Delhi, July 24 (PTI): The Central Information Commission has asked a health research institute to disclose details a former RAW official had sought, saying patients have a right to get their medical records from both public and private hospitals.
