Question

bloodycool89

Hello,

hi sir i am a residence of rajapakar south, dist vaishali bihar 844124,..the pmgsy road that connects to our village to the town(hajipur) via bidupur(akshaywat rai nagar) has not been repaired since decade..we made many complains regarding this but there was no action taken. During rainy days water get stagnated which makes it difficult for us to even walk on the road. Sir i just want to know why this has been overlooked when other roads are being repaired and new roads being built.

 

Also I would like to know where to make complain regarding this.

 

thanks

Dear member,

Kindly file a RTI application to seek information on the action taken status of your complaint by referring to the blog on the following link (enclose along with such a RTI application, a photocopy of the complaint as well as the postal track report as a proof of delivery of your complaint.)

It would be advisable to make a joint complaint again to the DDO/Collector along with few other residents of the area, with copy to the R & B Ministry. In democracy numbers count.

Through filing of RTI Application, one can not find remedy, and at the most if any thing is available on record, that information will be provided. So select RTI for getting information for the following:

1)Please provide the information on budget allocated for repairs of the road since 2010 every year.

2.Please provide number of complaints made for proper upkeep and inform action taken against such complaints.

3.Please provide action plan if any proposed and available on record for proper maintenance of the road.

4.Please provide the names of committee and it's members who allocates budgets depending on importance of the roads every year.

5.Please inform as to number of times this proposal was discussed by the committee and action taken after such deliberations.

 

As you know every Govt is starved of the funds, and the focus is more on individual that can give vote and not for a community as a whole. Now it is time for all the stake holders,voters to join and unitedly bring pressures on proposed elected representatives/parties for proper infrastructure and mainly roads.

Also kindly refer to the following link:

 

Sample RTI application for road repairs.

 

 

RTI may not get the road done, but it will draw the attention of the concerned authorities towards a file that may have been gathering dust because no citizen is asking any questions about that particular road's file, and the fear of publication of information under RTI might get the work done.

 

Before filing the RTI application just go through the respective State Govt's RTI Rules for formats, fees and also check whether there is any limit on the number of words for the information sought.

This is what thread starter has informed in his post.

.'We made many complains regarding this but there was no action taken".

As we all know by now, that it is not the complaints but it is information sought through RTI on action taken on those complaints that moves the file, and there are several such success stories .. for instance:

 

How a road for Marhari village was built with just one RTI !

 

Finally in 2013, Mishra filed an RTI enquiring about all development projects in his village. This laid foundation to the building of roads to his village. The simple RTI that he filed woke up the local administration and put it in gear. Today Mishra is a happy man, having lived to see a road being built to his village 67 years after independence and laying a milestone on how future development works can be done through RTI.

Sir,

Exceptional / isolated incidents can not be generalized and every one of us are aware as to how Govt. Machinery move and the fuel that is required and political forces. I agree that RTI also contributed not alone and let us not hype the utility more than what is actually required.

I beg to differ, in my view, these are not exceptional / isolated incidents but as a matter of fact, this is one of the several several such incidents of success, which are slowly and steadily becoming a norm of an informed society ! We at our forum have a dedicated thread titled 'Success Stories' for the purpose.

 

I would urge you to please explore the following link:

 

RTI Success Stories.

 

 

Let us not discourage the citizens of India who have just begun their journey of experiencing the tremendous / humongous power of information (following are just a few of many such notable quotes on the subject of power of information & its publicity):

 

> “Publicity is justly commended as a remedy for social and industrial diseases. Sunlight is said to be the best of disinfectants; electric light the most efficient policeman.” -- Louis D. Brandeis.

 

> “Secrecy is the freedom zealots dream of:

no watchman to check the door, no accountant to check the books, no judge to check the law. The secret government has no constitution. The rules it follows are the rules it makes up.” -- Bill Moyers.

 

> “Governments that try to control information are fighting a losing battle and if they bother trying, will face exorbitant costs.” -- Thomas Friedman.

 

> “Publicity is one of the purifying elements of politics. Nothing checks all the bad practices of politics like pubic exposure.” Woodrow Wilson.

 

> “Without publicity, no good is permanent; under the auspices of publicity, no evil can continue.” Jeremy Bentham.
