[*]First appeal filed with FAA FAA orders SPIO to furnish records within 3 days of receiving FAA order. [*]SPIO did not respond within 3 days or standard RTI act stipulated time [*]Second appeal (SA) filed with State Information Commission (SIC) SIC - SA Hearing day #1 : [*]Records received 1 day before the 2nd hearing date [*]Perusal of records indicate partial, incomplete covering letter by SPIO doesn't indicate what records have been provided and which have not. There is no justification provided for the records not provided Only records for 1997, 2004, 2007, 2014 & 2015 provided as below(note: records asked from 1997 to till date) [*]Prepared a written statement to respected SIC, clearly stating that records furnished after SAA order are partial, incomplete & no justification provided for records not provided [*]SIC - SA Hearing day #2 (I did not get time to scrutinize the records properly due to shortage of time) Respected SIC states if records not provided then i should approach High court I submitted my prepared written statement to respected to SIC [*]Awaiting SIC orde [*]Yesterday while further scrutinizing the documents found below shocking facts Records of #4 listed above should be a record [*]but the records of #4 listed above provided in the SPIO response don't have the official seal of the District Registrar Name of the Secretory and Signature of the secretory don't match All 11 governing body members signatures are present on first page Other places where all 11 are required to put their signature only 3 members of the governing council out of 11 have signed. I talked to couple of people whose signature is present in the first page as directors of the society in 1997 and they categorically denied ever signing such document and stated that they were not even aware of being part of the society members( they had not even heard of the society name nor have ever even entered the school premises). They verified the signatures on these records and confirmed they don't match with their official signature and clearly stated that these are forged signatures. [*]This leads me to believe that records of #4 listed above are fake/fabricated/forged records [*]Record #6 listed above is 100% false as when I cross checked, i found that all members of the governing body are from same family(5 brothers and their respective wife(s), and their own children) and all reside in the same house (HUF). This leads me to believe that this is also a fabricated record. ...given my above situation...please advise what should be my next course of action for below 1. What if SIC closes the appeal and directs me to go to high court if records not provided by SPIO are still needed? (they are needed) Is this how it happens in reality? Does SIC close the appeal even if partial records are provided without justification provided by SPIO on why other records were not provided to the applicant. (this is my first ever second appeal and i have come so far by going through various articles/posting on this website) 2. what should i do about the fabricated/forged/false records provided by SPIO? Thanks in advance for your time and valuable advice. (sorry in advance for any typo above) Sincerely, VAN with District Registrar official seal...as the society needs to registered with District Registrar of Societies Should be signed by President of the society Should be signed by Secretary of the society Should be signed by all other members of the governing council (11 members) of the society (signed at multiple places in the set of 12 pages) Should be signed by witness during registration of society with District Registrar School recognition renewal certificate in 2004 School registration/recognition application form for high school in 2007 School registration/recognition renewal for high school in 2014,2015 Society memorandum & rules and recognition documents(12 pages) 1997 dated**** Society governing body members list for 2015 (different list of members compared to members listed in #4 above...this may have changed between 1997 to 2015) A letter, dated 2015, to department by Society secretary stating that members of the governing body are not related to each other and are not from same family. Other 4 records related to school property dated 2015 Representative of SPIO attended hearing and stated that RTI application has been transferred to School as it is private & unaided. SIC says that records from private school dont come under RTI. Myself provides clarification that RTI application clearly states records requested are those which should be present/held in the department and my application doesn't ask for a single record which needs to be got from the school. Hence my RTI application should be honored and records requested should be provided by the department. SAA raps the officer for misleading and orders to provide the records requested within 30 days

    RTI & PG Portal

    Dear Sir, I have sent a set of Questions through RTI Application and Subsequently to FAA(When i failed to get reply from PIO) to a Central Govt Agency based out of Delhi. However Both PIO and FAA refused to give the information. Hence now i am preparing myself to approach CIC with the same set of questions. In the mean time, i thought of approaching PG PORTAL with the same set of Questions. However, when i visited PG PORTAL i found that on the first page of the Portal it is written that "RTI Matter should not be raised in this portal". Now my Question is "Is it possible to ask same set of Questions in the PG PORTAL which i have asked in RTI Application"? Or it is not allowed. Can you explain me this issue?

  18. Information Officer is not required to furnish information which require drawing of inferences and/or making of assumptions. In the decision Kerala HC - Mohd Saiyad Vs State, decided that though RTI Act provides access to all information that is available and existing, if the information sought is not a part of the record, and where such information is not required to be maintained under any law or the rules or regulations of the public authority, the Act does not cast any obligation, to collect such non-available information and then furnish it to an applicant. The Information Officer is also not required to furnish information which require drawing of inferences and/or making of assumptions. PIO not to draw inferences or make assumptions to provide information The very scope of information as held by the Supreme Court in Central Board of Secondary Education and another v. Aditya Bandopadhyay and Others (rti_SC_CBSE) [(2011) 8SCC 497] is to seek the information which is available in a material form. The Decision is available here: Kerala HC - Mohd Saiyad Vs State
  19. If the information asked under RTI is available after the reply to RTI, the PIO should not wait for the second appeal to happen to give those documents, instead it should be provided to the RTI applicant immediately. The PIO has earlier furnished incomplete reply due to unavailability of the documents. However, subsequently he had the documents, but did not give to the RTI applicant for approximately a year. Instead it waited for the second appeal hearing at CIC for more than a year and then produced the documents in front of the CIC. If you have any question regarding RTI, please post at our forum here! Central Information Commission directed the PIO that he should not wait until he receives the hearing notice from the commission. The commission directed the PIO to stick to this principle that as and when he is able to collect the information sought by the applicant, it should be provided to the applicant immediately. Don't wait for the hearing Notice from CIC Earlier the applicant has filed RTI asking for copies of various orders issued by the respondent authority in 1997 and 1998 regarding recruitment of TGTs along with copies of panel of selected TGTs in 1997­98 and related details, etc. Claiming that the respondent authority i.e Directorate of Education Old Secretariat, GNCTD has not furnished complete information, the appellant filed 2nd appeal before the Commission. The respondent authority submitted that the information sought by the appellant was not available at the time of his RTI application. Now that the complete information is available, the respondent authority has presented a full set of information to the appellant during hearing, who has acknowledged the same. The citation can be read here: Sh. Dinesh Kumar Vs. Dte of Education You can discuss this decision at our forum here! This is an extract of the decision available on the CIC public website, and is meant for generating interest in our readers only. For the true detailed and authentic copy you must download the decision from the CIC website!

  21. RTI Act 2005 Success Story: I had submitted RTI application to Income Tax Department asking them to show me the documents I submitted, the form I had then filled in 2009 for PAN card application. But they made a mistake in my father's name in the PAN card, then, and I had to pay Rs 100 to make necessary changes. I had asked them through RTI to show me my original form and refund my money if not my mistake. And guess what? They have refunded my money. The question is not about money.
