D.T.RATHAVA posted a topic in RTI in MediaWith no airplane of its own since the past about a year, the Haryana government has sent three pilots and an aeronautical engineer, deployed in its civil aviation department, home. Its only 10-seater airplane — Super King Air B 200 — which the state government had bought in 2006 (insured for about `14 crore) was irreparably damaged after it caught fire while taking off from Chandigarh for New Delhi with the then governor Jagannath Pahadia on board on March 27, 2014. The recent official order relieving the pilots said that the state government was not inclined to purchase a new aircraft and that the state government was “making all out efforts towards financial prudence and there is a lot of emphasis on curbing non-plan expenditure.” It further said the state government was of view that it would be a waste of public funds to keep the posts and that the government had therefore considered the matter carefully and decided to abolish the posts. Relieving the pilots and the engineer of their duties with immediate effect, the letter, however, said they would be entitled to all retrial benefits as per rules. Those relieved are senior executive pilot Wg Cdr B Nanda (retd) and pilots capt Kapil Khatana, capt Dinesh Bansal and aeronautical mechanical engineer Harpreet S Saini. While Wg Cdr Nanda got a salary plus allowances of about Rs 2 lakh a month, the pilots got about Rs 1 lakh a month and the engineer about Rs 50,000.

[h=1]Information Commission panel sends wishlist to CM Devendra Fadnavis for better service[/h] In its bid to serve the citizens better, the State Information Commission (SIC) has sent a slew of demand to the Devendra Fadnavis government. The demands come in the backdrop of the meeting the CM had with four information commissioners – Ratnakar Gaikwad, A K Jain, T Thekkekakra and D B Deshpande – on January 16. Among the demands are request for a legal cell and inspection cell at the commission. In its letter, the SIC states that the legal cell will come handy while handling complicated cases. "A number of times there are high court orders that are conflicting. In such cases, we need some guidance and having some legal experts could help," said Ratnakar Gaikwad who wrote the letter. The other demands include filling up vacant posts, particularly that of the information commissioner of the Amravati bench. The bench as of now has close to 6,000 appeals pending. It also raised questions of "skeletal" staff strength in each of the benches. Inspection wing at each commission to check compliance of the panel's orders is also desired. The letter further talks of information officers (PIOs) not being fined. Training of PIOs and first appellate authority and disadvantaged persons is recommended to raise awareness of the RTI Act. The letter also suggests the government consider having the implementation of the Public Records Act and Services Act under one department. Bhaskar Prabhu of the Mahiti Adhikar Manch backed the demands. "If there is a legal cell, commission will be better informed. Contentions should be in front of the commissioner before hearing. In many cases, the complainant is not called, so compliance ends up becoming a one-sided affair. A number of times inquiries are not conducted properly which make orders of the commission redundant." Prabhu said as far as compliance is concerned, a network of citizens' groups can be of great help.
