Information regarding the total expenses of railway officials for work visits was sought under the RTI Act, 2005, to which the reply from Public Information Officer was a denial.


Mansoor Darvesh, who is a member of Passengers and Traffic Relief Association (PATRA), Creative Thinkers (CT), Welfare Organization for Road Safety and Prevention of Accidents (WORSPA), Bombay Aman Committee (BAC) and The Halai Memon Social Welfare Association, posted a question on March this year to Public Information Officer (Union Railway Minister of India, New Delhi).


“The information is not maintained in the form it has been sought by the applicant. The collection of data from various files and records for the period from January 1, 2010 to December 31, 2014 and compilation thereof is a time consuming exercise and would disproportionately divert the resources at the disposal of the public authority. As such, the information is not warranted in terms of section 7(9) of the RTI Act,” said the reply, undersigned by S.K. Khanna (Section Officer, Railway Board).

Railway department is lazy in completing pending works. In last January top Central Railway officials had visited Thane station to instruct their men to expedite various pending works on station premises as Railway Minister was to visit the area. This is; ' It is too late to dig a well when the house is on fire'!.
