firdaus posted a question in Ask for RTI SupportRTI was filed upon the State Education Board seeking a copy of the "Combined Marksheet" of Std-12 final Board exam results of a particular school. There is no doubt whatsoever that the information requested is maintained by the State Education Board. Despite this being so, to avoid giving information, the State Education Board transferred my RTI Application to the school. As the school has never ever furnished any information even in the past, there is no chance whatsoever that the school will furnish this information to me because it is going to expose a major scam. what recourse do I have in such a case where, the State Education Board "transfers" my application despite possessing the information themselves ? (1) should I file complaint with SIC U/s 18 against the PIO of the State Education Board ? (2) should I wait till the school replies/fails to supply the information and then go through the 1st Appeal and 2nd Appeal process and then upon still no info. Being supplied approach High court ? With the 2nd Appeals taking 18-24 months to come up for hearing, it appears that the authorities are abusing RTI Act to delay giving of information for at least 18-24 months !

To know some information I had applied to the PIO, department of school & mass education. but since i couldn't receive any reply within 30 days, I applied to FAA. The FAA on his judgement replied that my rti appeal had been transferred to PIO,Director of secondary education,hence I must go to FAA,Director of Secondary education, and thus rejected my appeal. But actually no intimation had been made to me regarding transfer of my application.Also if intimated also, why the FAA,Deptt of S&ME didn't transfer my 1st appeal to FAA,Director of secondary education ? In this case What'll be my next step ? Shall I move to Information commissioner for 2nd appeal ? I think I never go to FAA,Director of secondary education as I am not communicated about transfer of my appeal to PIO. Again in my knowledge there was no need to transfer my application. All information I were seeking about may be provided me by collecting data from its sub-ordinate offices.
[caption id=attachment_2823" align="alignright" width="400] RTI caught in Passing the Parcel Game[/caption] RTI Applicant had to finally get all the officials present before Central Information Commission by his second appeal and get the directions from CIC to ensure that PIO (Deptt. Of Urban Development), Delhi collects the information from all the concerned PIOs and provide reply. CIC directed that all the PIOs should look into the RTI application without making a claim that ‘they are not concerned with’, etc. and provide the information regarding their role with regard to the area mentioned in the RTI application. The Public Information Officers took the shelter of Section 6(3) of RTI Act in transferring the RTI application to one another. Do you also face the indiscriminate use of this section by PIO in transferring the applications? Please share with us at our forum here! If you have any questions our experts shall be glad to help you. RTI caught in Passing the Parcel Game Earlier, an RTI Applicant who sought information regarding the Unauthorised Regularised colonies relating to major consumer markets, malls, multiplexes, hotels, district centres, community centres and retail shopping centers etc. and facilities and services provided by the Government of NCT of Delhi of a particular area, went into tizzy as PIO went on passing the RTI application and each PIO stating that 'they are not concerned with RTI'. The Commission directed the concerned PIO, to show cause, why penalty cannot be imposed on them for transferring the RTI application without proper application of mind and not providing answers to the RTI applicant. The full case can be read and downloaded from here! Citation: Mr.K.Chand Vs. Dept.of Urban Development, GNCTD Date of decision 30-06-2014 This is an extract of the decision available on the CIC public website, and is meant for generating interest in our readers only.

parveensudarshan posted a question in Ask for RTI SupportWhat i understand from another public authority is that its PIO is separate even though it can pertain to same Ministry. Now, my query is --- suppose i send an application to a PIO. After somedays, it comes to my knowledge on telephonic enquiry that my application (or part thereof) has been transferred to some other Public Authority (PIO)...kindly note that it is not transfer under 6(3) which i know is transfer within the same public authority. My question is ----i) from when the 30days time period will be counted? --from the initial date of receipt of application or the date when the 'new' PIO (to whom the application has been transferred) receives the letter? Second question is --suppose i dont get any reply -- from the PIO whom my application was originally addressed (for the paras pertaining to him) nor do i get any reply within the mandated period from the second PIO (whom my application or part thereof has been transferred), then to whose Appellate Authority would i address the first appeal ---original PIO or the new PIO?
