karira posted a topic in RTI in MediaNow selection of drivers challenged before HC CHANDIGARH: Replies to queries using the RTI Act sought by an unsuccessful candidate has spilled the beans on the recruitment of drivers by the Haryana Staff Selection Commission during the Bhupinder Singh Hooda-led Congress government. The RTI queries revealed the recruiting agency not only selected candidates who did not possess the essential qualifications, but the commission also allowed aspirants having driving licences of two-wheelers as the drivers of officials vehicles. Supported with RTI queries procured over a year, candidate Satish has now challenged the appointments in the Punjab and Haryana high court. The matter will come up for hearing on January 22 as the court has sought a reply from the Haryana government in the matter. Satish has filed the case along with another aspirant Krishan. "It took us more than a year to collect the documents under the RTI Act to fight our case. There are certain candidates who don't fulfill the conditions related to essential qualifications like holding of valid driving licences," he said. In February 2008, HSSC had invited applications for the recruitment of 110 drivers to be posted in various departments, boards and corporations of the state government. According to advertisement, the candidates should have possessed valid driving licences of the light transport vehicle (LTV) in addition to experience of 3-5 years as drivers of transport vehicles. Information sought through the RTI Act revealed that there were 10 candidates who did not have valid driving licences. "Those 10 candidates had driving licences of light motor vehicles (LMVs) which entitled them to drive private or personal cars. Similarly, the experience certificates furnished by the selected drivers were found to have been issued after February 2008 after last date of submission of application forms," said Satish. Meanwhile, officials of Haryana transport department and HSSC refused to comment on the issue saying that the matter was pending before the court.

karira posted a topic in RTI in MediaAs reported in The Times of India, Hyderabad Edition, on 3 May 2010: ePaper Lite - Times of India Publications Selection of new CIC: Will Rosaiah govt,Opp deliver Hyderabad: When the Right to Information Act was enforced in the year 2005,citizen activists across the country lauded it as it would empower them to access information on various issues from government offices that were until then buried under the weight of bureaucracy and dust.The Acts primary aim was to promote transparency and accountability in every public department. Public Information Officers (PIOs) were appointed at each government office,their sole job being to receive RTI applications from citizens,direct them to the officer concerned and give a satisfactory reply. That the Act created a new segment of activistsRTI activists only indicates that much was lacking in the Acts implementation.Soon,citizens started questioning why the Act was not being implemented in its letter and spirit,at least as far as the information commission in Andhra Pradesh was concerned. From half-baked responses to delays in responding to RTI queries,there is much that plagues the information commission in AP,which has been ranked among the lowest among other information commissions in the country (as per reports brought out by activists). Now,with the current chief information commissioner (CIC) C D Arhas term getting over in July,activists are busy discussing who the new CIC would be.As per the rule book,any eminent person (not an MP or MLA) with wide knowledge and experience in law,science and technology,social service,management,journalism,mass media or administration and governance can become the CIC.Given the eligibility criteria,would the government and the opposition party (approval of the leader is needed in the CICs appointment) think out of the box and make an unlikely appointment better suited to the RTIs implementation in the state While this decision is pending,TOI scans the RTI office to unearth its dismal performance in the last five years.

karira posted a topic in RTI in MediaObserving that possibilities of nepotism and favouritism in public appointments should not be used as a reason to doubt in-house selection procedures of government offices, the Central Information Commission has turned down a request to disclose details on appointment of an official superseding another. "Certain amount of trust will have to be reposed in the institutional mechanism that has been in place or procedures that have been laid down by a public authority to enable it to make an informed judgment about choice of personnel," Information Commissioner A N Tiwari said. The CIC's observation came in light of an RTI plea by president of Kandla Port Karmachari Sangh Mohan K Aswani, who had sought from the Department of Shipping file notings pertaining to appointment of his colleague for the post of Labour Trustee, in preference over him. While noting that public offices might use "cloak of confidentiality" to cover up their "injudicious decision" coupled with "favouritism and nepotism", the commission, while turning down Aswani's plea, said that such a possibility should not raise doubts on the functioning of the offices. "I am not inclined to undo an established system on the basis of some hypothetical scenario about its possible abuse," Tiwari said in his order. The Commission, however, said in cases of specific allegations of abuses of authority by public offices, they could be asked to disclose the details under the provisions of RTI Act. Earlier, the information officer of Shipping Ministry had contended that selection process of officials had confidential details sourced from vigilance and intelligence agencies, which would be inappropriate to divulge.
