saiy2k posted a question in Ask for RTI SupportHi, I sent an RTI to Tamil Nadu Information Commission asking the following questions: a) With reference to Tamilnadu G.O.Ms.No.989, Public (Estt.I & Leg.) Dept., dated 7.10.2005 the applicant can remit the RTI fee through Demand Draft / Bankers cheque / Treasury / Pay and Accounts Office / State Bank of India / Reserve Bank of India. (i) Whether RTI fee can be remitted through District Treasury or not? If yes, What is the procedure to pay in District Treasury? (ii) What is the procedure to remit RTI fee through Sub-Treasury? Whether Sub - Treasury is obliged to give Treasury challan to pay RTI fee or not? (iii) What is the procedure to remit RTI fee through any branch of State Bank of India in Tamilnadu? What challan would be given by SBI to pay RTI fees and Whether it bound to give challan or not? (iv) What is the procedure to remit RTI fee through Pay and Accounts Office? (v) What is the procedure to remit RTI fee through Reserve Bank of India? (vi) The head “0075.00. Miscellaneous General Services – 800. Other receipts – BK. Collection of fees under Tamil Nadu Right to Information (Fees) Rules 2005” [DPC 0075 00 800 BK 0006] is too long to take Demand Draft / Bankers cheque. So many Bankers refuse to give DD and Bankers Cheque in above said Head. Then what action would be taken against Banker under RTI act for violating ART 21, RTI act, GO & e.t.c and what are other remedies to pay the RTI fee? Response The RTI was rejected stating "Procedure to be followed in remitting of fee does not come under the purview of information under section 2(f) of RTI Act, 2005." Can someone please advice me whether should I go first appeal for this reply or should I rephrase the questions in some other way?
smbhappy posted a topic in RTI in MediaThe Hindu : Tamil Nadu News : Report in land grab case need not be disclosed to public: Information panel Report in land grab case need not be disclosed to public: Information panel Shyam Ranganathan CHENNAI: The report submitted by the Tiruvallur Collector in the Justice P.D. Dinakaran land grab case need not be disclosed to the public, the Tamil Nadu Information Commission has ruled in a recent order. Ruling against petitioner V. Madhav, who had sought the documents under the Right to Information Act, the Commission accepted the Collector's affidavit that access need not be given to the documents under Sections 8(1)© and 8(1)(h) of the Act. Section 8(1)© provides exemption to “information, the disclosure of which will cause a breach of privilege of Parliament or the State legislature.” Section 8(1)(h) provides exemption to “information, which will impede the process of investigation or apprehension or prosecution of offenders.” Mr. Madhav, however, argued that both the Collector and the Commission had not explained where breach of privilege would be committed or how the process of investigation would be impeded. He pointed out that a 2007 Delhi High Court order had specifically stated that “the authority withholding information must show satisfactory reasons as to why the release of such information will hamper the investigation process.” The order had added further that “such reasons should be germane, and the opinion of the process being hampered should be reasonable and based on some material. Sans this consideration, Section 8 (1) (h) and other such provisions will become a haven for dodging demands for information.” Mr. Madhav added a media entity had obtained possession of the documents and it was only reasonable that the documents be also made available to the general public.
