Police filed FIR for filing RTI requesting information about in-laws income tax filing and govenrment welfare schemes
narahari2020 posted a question in Ask for RTI SupportHello, My wife filed false dowry cases on me and my parents. The case is in court and we are all participating in the trial. We filed RTI to get information about my in-laws income tax returns, various welfare schemes of Depart of Rural Development in which my in-laws are taking advantage of. We wanted to use this information to show the financial status of my in-laws family in the court when appropriate. The concerned PIOs replied to our RTIs in time with information requested. My wife filed a complaint in police station saying that by filing RTIs to income tax department and Department of Rural development we are harassing her and her family. The police opened FIR. RTI is a fundamental right and we used it to protect ourselves in the court. My wife who is looking for opportunities to file more false cases on us has been very persistent and successful in getting a FIR opened. Please advice whom should I write to help in this regard.

Above him are village administrative officers, revenue inspectors and tahsildars, who form the hierarchy,'' says Karpagam. K Ramamoorthy, a Coimbatore-based RTI activist, said 600-odd beneficiaries of free food processors and grinders were left out in Neelambur panchayat, allegedly after freebies meant for them were diverted. "Only green ration card holders are eligible. But the freebies were given to white card holders also. After I filed an RTI seeking the list of beneficiaries, they hurriedly distributed mixies and grinders to green card holders who were left out," he alleged.

Hi, Tamilnadu govt announced welfare schemes for the year 2012-13 for Adi-dravidar people http://www.tn.gov.in/citizen/adtw.pdf In that section 2.1 states that Adidravidars/tribes/converted christians are exempted from payment of Tution Fees. But students are asked to pay their tution fess in colleges, when asked to HM/principal they reply as if there are no communication to them even when the copy is shown and they cannot do anything unless they get some formal communication. When the problem is raised with some personnel in collector's office they said "NO fund is been allocated, so we cannot do anything". If an announced scheme doesn't exists they why it is there in the books of records of Tamilnadu government?

As reported at timesofindia.indiatimes.com on 4 September 2009 NEW DELHI: The Supreme Court on Friday issued notices to the country's top auditor Comptroller and Auditor General (CAG) and others on a petition accusing it of failure to recover "around Rs 10,000 crore" from banks and deploy it for welfare of the disabled. The petition filed by one Ravi Shankar Bhushan, a disabled person working in an NGO, said that CAG had not complied with the apex court's directions given in April 2004. CAG was to recover the money illegally collected by banks from individual borrowers by rounding-off interest rate and ensure that the money was used for welfare of disabled. A bench headed by Chief Justice K G Balakrishnan sought replies from the Ministries of Finance and Social Justice and Empowerment, CAG, RBI, the Indian Banks' Association and 26 public sector banks, including State Bank of India. The petition has sought a direction to the ministries to disclose details of disbursements made to disabled in accordance with the apex court decision's and also frame appropriate schemes for disabled like their rehabilitation, entrepreneurial activity, prevention and early detection. Bhushan claimed that only Rs 150 crore had been recovered so far against Rs 10,000 crore collected by banks by rounding-off interest rates. The petition noted that RBI had given approval to the system of rounding-off of the rate of interest to be levied by the banks by up to 0.25% and shift the burden of the same on to the borrowers. Bhushan alleged that CAG was not collecting the money expeditiously and the banks were also not giving full details about the dues in a time-bound manner. Though a Trust headed by CAG was set up, it appeared that apart from starting a scholarship scheme for disabled students envisaging a maximum expenditure of Rs one crore per year as late as August 2008, nothing further seems to have been done in the matter, the petition said. Further, the amount recovered was to be used for separate schemes and not for funding existing government programmes for disabled persons, it said, adding that the amount was to go into a fund which was over and above the sum spent by the Government of India for disabled persons. It is in the interest of justice and transparency that prominent NGOs working in this area and disabled persons should be involved in framing of schemes, the petition said. The apex court had in 2004 barred banks and the Centre from keeping the money, which was collected illegally by rounding-off interest rate, and had directed CAG to recover the excess amount from them and deposit the same in a corpus fund for the benefit of the disadvantaged. Bhushan, who had collected the information under the Right to Information Act, said that the apex court's decision in 2004 had not been implemented. The apex court, while deciding the PIL in 2004, had held that the fund managed by CAG should be collected for the benefit of disabled persons and the excess collection of Rs 723.79 crore collected annually since 1993 by the banks all over the country should be deposited in the fund.

karira posted a topic in RTI in MediaPosted on chennaionline.com on 25 May 2008: CIC unhappy over non-disclosure of welfare schemes to artisans CIC unhappy over non-disclosure of welfare schemes to artisans New Delhi, May 25 The Central Information Commission (CIC) has expressed displeasure over UP handicraft department's failure to provide information to an RTI applicant on Central schemes for artisans and craftsmen. "The department has erred as it has not cared to provide the information asked for. The details sought for have to be in the public domain so that an information seeker does not have to ask for it," Information Commissioner M M Ansari said. The person, who asked for information, is free to seek an inspection of the entire records relating to the implementation of various schemes meant for upliftment of the artisans and craftsmen including the handloom workers, Ansari said. In an RTI appeal before the CIC, Mohd Aasif Khan alleged that though the Centre has been providing financial support for artisans, craftsmen and weavers, the benefits were not reaching them. He had filed an RTI plea with the department, seeking details of various schemes under which financial assistance were provided to the artisans for education, health care, housing and other incentives. "He alleged that he has visited the CPIO's office on several occasions but of no avail. And thus he had been subjected to harassment in seeking information related to the reach of entitlements to the poorest of the poor under the Government's schemes," Ansari noted. The apex transparency panel said that the information -- to be furnished to the applicant -- should be utilised for ensuring the reach of entitlements to the beneficiaries under the Act.
