One should also seek information on larger public interest from SBI also about the encashment in larger public interest.

What is the say of PMO secretariat on treatment of cheque further to receipt by PM ?

 

Interesting. Disgusting. Sorrowful. DRAMA.

In a curious case, the army has said no contribution from the salary of any of its personnel has been donated to Prime Minister's Relief Fund, a statement that comes four months after Army Chief Dalbir Singh Suhag had handed over a cheque of Rs 100 crore to the fund. "It has been intimated by concerned agency that no amount on account of contributions from salary of any Army personnel has yet been donated to the Prime Minister's Relief Fund. "The matter is under consideration," army CPIO Lt Col Rajiv Guleria said in an RTI response to Dehradun-based Prabhu Dandriyal.Read more at;

NEW DELHI:Drawing flak for its decision to cut a day’s salary of all its staff for donations to the Prime Minister’s Relief Fund, the Army headquarters is now in the process of collecting consent letters for the same from each of its personnel.

 

Express was the first to report on January 18, 2015 that several of the officers were upset with the decision of Army chief General Dalbir Singh Suhag in ordering a day’s pay cut to contribute `100 crore to the PM’s Relief Fund to help the flood-affected people of Jammu and Kashmir.

The mystery of Rs100 crore donation by Army to PM Relief Fund

The mystery of Rs100 crore donation by Army to PM Relief Fund - Moneylife

PM Modi was seen as receiving Rs100 crore from Army as donation towards PM's Relief Fund. However, a reply received from Army HQ under RTI says no such money was donated

 

15 January 2015: Prime Minister Narendra Modi (was seen in a photo published by Press Information Bureau -PIB) received a cheque of Rs100 crore from Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar and Army Chief General Dalbir Singh towards Prime Minister's Relief Fund on the 67th Army Day. Interestingly, the photograph when enlarged by us shows that it was a mock cheque handed over by the Army Chief. It has no amount mentioned. Instead, it says, “One day’s pay of all ranks of Indian Army”.

 

So what happened to the donation? Was the money donated? Was it collected from Army officers and soldiers and handed over to the PM Relief Fund?

 

20 March 2015: A reply received Right to Information (RTI) Act says the Army has yet to donate Rs100 crore toward the PM Relief Fund!

 

According to a PIB release on 15 January 2015, the Indian Army donated Rs100 crore and the amount was raised by officers and soldiers donating a day's salary each. The cheque of Rs100 crore was handed over to PM Modi by General Dalbir Singh at the traditional 'At Home' at Army House on the 67th Army Day.

Dehradun-based Prabhu Dandriyal filed an RTI seeking details about the Rs100 crore donation given by the Army to PM Relief Fund. On 20 March 2015, he received a reply from the RTI Cell of the Army.

 

The reply sent by Lt Col Rajiv Guleria for Central Public Information Officer (CPIO) of Indian Army says, "It has been intimated by concerned agency that no amount on account of contributions from salary of any Army personnel has yet been donated to the Prime Minister Relief Fund. The matter is under consideration."

Therefore, the question remains as to whether the PM Relief Fund received Rs100 crore donation by Army or no. There could be three possible scenarios. One, the donation was given, but someone may have forgotten to collect/deposit the actual cheque. Second, the PIO from Army not have received correct information and hence gave incorrect information. Three, the PIO may have given wrong or misleading information.

 

According to Shailesh Gandhi, former Central Information Commissioner and RTI activist, it is impossible for the PIO to provide misleading or wrong information. "However, the PIO may not have realised the impact of this information," he said.
