  1. In the Larger Public Interest, the Respondent Public Authority is advised to suo-motu disclose the policy/procedure and the guidelines adopted by it for the selection and empanelment of doctors. The Commission observed that in a service oriented company like the United India Insurance Co. Ltd., it was noted with concern the manner in which such public spirited matters was undertaken and would thus suggest its management to initiate adequate remedial measures to reorient its thinking, strategy and delivery in the larger public interest. It was felt that there is an urgent need therefore, to adopt a more efficient and robust suo motu disclosure policy within the Public Authority to ensure that available information is provided to the public at large in public domain under Section 4 of the RTI Act, 2005 without resorting to the tool of RTI application, expeditiously. CIC-UIICL-A-2017-186381-BJ--.pdf
  2. I was trying (unsuccessfully) to get my bank - State Bank of Mysore - to implement sec 4 of the RTI Act. I gave up after a DO in the CIC (instead of a Commissioner himself) responded to my Complaint with the following letter: http://dsscic.nic.in/cause-list-report-web/download?filename=MjAxNy0wNS0wNi0xMTIxMTIxMDAwMi5wZGY%3D Recently six State Banks were merged with SBI and I decided to have a look at the Sec 4 disclosure of Indias largest Bank (owned by you and me !). Have a look at their website's RTI page: https://www.sbi.co.in/portal/web/corporate-governance/right-to-information-act-2005 Have a hearty laugh.
  3. Implementation of suo motu disclosure under Section 4 of RTI Act, 2005 – Issue of guidelines regarding (OM attached here) Suo_moto_disclosure-15042013 (1).pdf
  4. As per Section 20(1), Where the Central Information Commission or the State Information Commission, as the case may be, at the time of deciding any complaint or appeal is of the opinion that the Central Public Information Officer or the State Public Information Officer, as the case may be, has, (i) without any reasonable cause, refused to receive an application for information or (ii) has not furnished information within the time specified under sub-section (1) of section 7 or (iii) malafidely denied the request for information or (iv) knowingly given incorrect, incomplete or misleading information or (v) destroyed information which was the subject of the request or (vi) obstructed in any manner in furnishing the information, it shall impose a penalty of two hundred and fifty rupees each day till application is received or information is furnished, so however, the total amount of such penalty shall not exceed twenty-five thousand rupees. I have broken the wordings into 6 points for easy reading but if we remove the numbering, the wordings are exact copy. In these six points, I cannot find any provision for penal action against a PIO for non-compliance of Section 4, i.e., suo-moto disclosure of information. So can CIC issue Show Cause Notice to a PIO or Head of Department, for non-compliance of Section 4?
  5. As reported by A Subramani at timesofindia.indiatimes.com on 11 November 2009 CHENNAI: By going public with details of his assets, civil servant U Sahayam has joined an elite clique of individuals who have waged a relentless battle from within, and made the system more accountable and transparent. Advocate and Right To Information (RTI) activist Subhash C Aggarwal set off a judicial snowball by submitting an innocuous query seeking to know whether judges of the Supreme Court were adhering to the May 7, 1997 Restatement of Values and declaring their assets regularly. When the apex court was still in the denial mode, with the Chief Justice of India KG Balakrishnan himself countering the pro-declaration arguments, Justice Shylendra Kumar of the Karnataka High Court stepped out of the ranks and declared his assets on August 24. Justice K Kannan of the Punjab and Haryana High Court did not take long thereafter to blog his asset details. The war from within had well and truly begun. That the Supreme Court refused to part with any asset-related information, that the Central Information Commission ruled that the office of CJI too was under the ambit of the RTI Act, that in an unprecedented act the apex court filed a writ petition before the Delhi High Court against the information panel's ruling and that the Delhi HC concluded that the CJI's office did come under the RTI umbrella, is history. The logical conclusion was reached when, on September 28, the Supreme Court officially announced that its judges would voluntarily' declare their assets. The disclosure was actually made on November 2. With the last word yet to be said in the appeal proceedings before the Delhi High Court, the journey has already proved to be long and eventful for Aggarwal. Sagayam's battle with babus seems to have just begun, given the fact that most of his colleagues in service are distinctly dismissive and reluctant to disclose. While the judiciary is done with its share of denials and protestations, the state bureaucrats have embarked on the journey only now. Just compare the situations in Tamil Nadu and Uttar Pradesh. The Tamil Nadu bureaucracy is not ready to join the transparency bandwagon, but the Madras High Court is all set to declare the assets and liability details of its judges on November 15. (In fact, Justice K Chandru submitted his details to Chief Justice HL Gokhale on Monday). In Uttar Pradesh, a section of IAS officers serving in the state have already made public their asset details, whereas the 100-odd judges of the Allahabad High Court have adopted a resolution not to make public their asset details !

    Nagaland tops national RTI charts

    As reported at morungexpress.com on …But ill-informed officers ‘embarrass’ Morung Express News: The full assessment report on the performance of states, in complying with the suo moto disclosures and provisions of the Right to Information Act 2005, has Nagaland topping the charts over all the other states in the country. Nagaland beat even infamous administrative nightmares like New Delhi and Information Technology capital Karnataka hands down. And the Union Territories fared even ‘worse’ in performance, the report of the Bangalore-based Public Affairs Center showed. The full report was obtained recently. The assessment covered twelve central government ministries or departments sixteen departments each of the 28 state governments and the six Union Territories, the Central Information Commission and the State Information Commissions of 27 state governments. According to the report, Nagaland led the top five with 62% and Delhi (56%), Bihar (55%), Punjab (51%) and Andhra Pradesh (49%) following in the top list. Of the low-ranked states Jharkhand, Assam and Arunachal Pradesh were at the nadir with 0%, while Uttarakhand secured 3% and Kerala 6%. The surprising result was that of India’s IT state Karnataka, whose performance was “below average” at 30.2% – ranked 15th among 28 states. According to the report, the “degree of compliance seems” to correlate with recent histories of administrative reforms – or Information Technology initiatives of the state governments in concern. The report cited the case of Nagaland – it was one of the first states to introduce administrative reforms with e-governance as the flagship drive. In contrast, for Delhi, it is mandatory for every department to allocate 2% of its total IT allocation “initiatives” within the department in concern. Bihar was commended for its innovative call-center system (or “Jaankaari”) to providing information under the RTI Act. The downside for Nagaland Now the damper before any celebrations commence: many departmental officers or Public Information Officers in Nagaland entrusted with providing demanded information are too “casual” and ill-informed on RTI. In fact, many officers are so inept at handling RTI applications that a case in January this year saw the Nagaland Information Commission lamenting that the officers are only “embarrassing themselves and their departments.” On January 28 in Kohima this year, the Information Commission rebuked senior officers of the department of Power for pleading ‘ignorance’ about the provisions of RTI. A citizen had sought information from the Power department but response was delayed over the claim of not being “conversant” with handling RTI applications and its provisions. This plea of the officer in concern – according to a copy of the commission’s proceeding obtained here – is neither reasonable nor acceptable, the commission stated. “The commission has raised this issue a number of times in meetings with heads of administrative departments and heads of departments and also with chief secretary and senior officers for the last two years,” the commission’s record quoted the information commissioners. “…in many cases officers take these matters casually, and do not apply their mind, thereby embarrassing themselves and their departments when they receive and have to handle RTI applications,” the commission lamented.
