Dear member,

Sarpanch does not get any salary to develop village area but village panchayat is being given fund/grant from government.

The developmental works of village are carried out from budgetary grants as well as tax / cess collected by the village. You can get information about such grants as well as the expenses incurred or the developmental works executed can be obtained by filing RTI Application.


Please file RTI Application with the PIO of Panchayat and seek following information -


For Budget grant :


[1] certified copy of the Head-wise budget grant sanctioned for the year 2013-14, 2014-15 etc.


For Work Expenses.

[1] certified copy of Letter of Acceptance of all works awarded from 1/4/2010 to 31/3/2014


(LoA shall contain exact description of work awarded on contract, name and address of contractor to whom the work awarded, accepted contract value, date of commencement, target date of completion.)


[2] certified copy of latest paid On-account bill (OR running bill) in respect of all on-going works.


(On-Account Bill/Running Bill shall contain details payments made in the past)


[3] certified copy of Final Bills of all contracts completed from 1/4/2010 and 31/3/2014


(Final bill will show all details of amount paid, recoveries due and made, escalation in rates or contract value allowed, final Completion Cost etc.)


(4) Details of Service Tax deducted form each of the contractor and remitted to Central Excise and Customs Department during the period 1/4/2010 and 31/3/2014


(The amount of Service Tax can be used to assess the correctness of payments released to the contractor ).


If you still have doubt about the quantum of physical work executed vis-a-vis the quantum of work awarded on contract, you can seek :


[4] certified copy of the 'Schedule of Work' in respect of Letter of acceptance No. ................. dated ................


(Schedule of work shall show quantity of each item included in a contract. With the schedule of work in hand, you can cross-verify physical quantum and assess discrepancy if any.)


You can cut-paste these items in your RTI Application after deleting bold bracketed portion.


Application Format (if any) and Fee shall be as per RTI Rules of your state, which can be viewed in this link: CENTRAL / STATE RTI RULES - GUIDE


You can also download and use samples from below links for panchayat related other issues:




Sample RTI application for Road maintenance


Sample RTI application for open manholes

Sample RTI application for maintenance of public Parks

You can follow the same procedure as given in Post No.3, if what you mean salary is "grant for surpanch" given by State Govt., for his discretionary spending for public interest.

      New Delhi, July 17: A woman, who is in a legal wrangle for maintenance, has been allowed by the Central Information Commission (CIC) details about salary of her husband, working for a public sector power company.
      Ritu Sharma, in an RTI application, had sought the salary certificate of Daya Sharma, her husband and a senior employee with power generation major NTPC, alleging that he had misled a family court hearing her maintenance petition.
      In response to the application, NTPC's chief Public Information Officer had denied the information stating that the disclosure, related to personal information of a third party, would cause "unwarranted incursion of the privacy".
      Terming the denial of information as "untenable", the CIC directed the CPIO to provide the details within 15 days to the applicant, a resident of Raipur in Chattisgarh.
      "All the public authorities are under the obligation under the Right to Information Act to disclose salaries of their employees," Information Commissioner M M Ansari said, while allowing Ritu's application.
      The Commission held that the monthly remuneration received by each of its (public authority) officers and employees, including the system of compensation as provided in its regulations should be published.

      The Imphal Free Press
      IMPHAL, Aug 22: A dead man was found drawing salary in the electricity department as assistant lineman sixteen years after his death.
      This faux pass came to light when L Tombi and L Rishikanta, wife and son of late L Ningthemjao of Kiyam Siphai, filed a complaint with the state chief information commissioner for service-related documents of Ningthemjao from the electricity department under the Right to Information Act on July 7, 2007.
      As told by Rishikanta at a press conference held today at the office of Human Rights Law Network, his father was serving as an assistant lineman with the electricity department from January 21, 1971. Later, on August 18, 1984, he joined as work charge. However, Rishikanta said, his father died on June 21, 1985 due to illness. He said that the representatives from the office employee union came for his shradha and provided monetary help.
      Rishikanta said that since he was very young and his mother was also illiterate, they did not have any idea about pension and other benefits procedures. He said, “It was only in 2004 that we sent an application to the electricity department to find out about my father’s pension when one of his friends enquired about it. Then we started to investigate and could not make much headway.”
      M Rakesh, state coordinator HRLN, said that after Rishikanta approached for help, he sent a legal notice to the chief engineer of the electricity department on January 17, 2007 on behalf of Tombi inquiring about the pension benefits of late Ningthemjao.
      Not being able to make much progress, two applications were sent by Tombi and Rishikanta under RTI to the electricity department. After 30 days lapsed with no action forthcoming, on July 7, 2007, the state information commission was approached.
      Thereafter, the state information commission directed the chief engineer of the electricity department to furnish the relevant service documents of Ningthemjao. In the service documents provided by the electricity department, it was found that Ningthemjao was promoted as lineman on January 16, 1998, thirteen years after his death, by the then chief engineer. Thereafter he retired on superannuation on August 31, 2001, more than 16 years after his death.
      Apart from having somebody withdrawing Ningthemjao’s salary for the past 16 years, Rakesh said that there were various false documentations. As per the family’s version, at the time of his death Ningthemjao was serving with the Thoubal electricity division whereas the official document mentioned that he was last serving with the Imphal Electrical Division No. 3, Lamphelpat.
      Rakesh said that a criminal case will be taken up at the earliest against the electricity department and the High Court will be approached to provide relief to the aggrieved family.
