Question

ispy

Recently I found the indiapost.nic.in website where you can supposedly apply for electronic posts etc. i.e; you can give text and they will print and send it to the specified address.

But after registering account I'm unable to login. No error message is shown.

I'm getting an error message when I type invalid user id or password, but I get no error when I use correct password and username, just the main page is shown as if nothing happened.

Also there is the issue of https://www.epostoffice.gov.in/ on which any links don't work.

 

Is this an attempt to stop Activists from filing RTIs online (To State govt)?

Is anyone else able to file RTIs or send ePosts online?

Update: I booted into my Windows and recheked with Firefox and Chrome and Internet Explorer.

 

Logging in using Internet Explorer works. Looks like they are checking user-agent and intentaionally blocking Firefox and Chrome.

 

So I can't use Linux and free software to access government websites. I have to buy a Windows license for 5000 rupees or download a virus or spywate or trojan infested pirated version of Windows from torrents.

 

Good job India Post.

Please file application to seek such information as to the reasons why they have not considered this operation through all browsers, and patronising only one brower, which may not be working for all browsers, complaints received if any, and steps take for reaching the facility to many.

I think that we can use the same through notified post offices also,

Please take up the matter in larger public interest and get some improvement, as you have commenced the process and technically competent.

This is regarding to the problem of ePost allowing login only through Internet Explorer. Firefox and Chrome are not working.

Here is the original post.

http://www.rtiindia.org/forum/171516-india-post-website-intentionally-not-allowing-log.html

 

So I've decided to file an RTI according to http://www.rtiindia.org/forum/members/g-l-n-prasad.html suggestion.

 

But I need help drafting it. Here is the application that I've drafted so far.

 

1) Please confirm if the indiapost.nic.in allows only Internet Explorer users to login.

2) Provide details on if the website was tested on various browsers like Firefox and Chrome.

3) If "1)" is true why is Internet Explorer is being patronised especially since it's available only for users who buy a Microsoft Windows license for at least 5000 rupees.

4) Have you received any complaints regarding the inability to login to the above mentioned site?

5) Please provide details of action taken in regards to complaints received about "inability to login to the above mentioned site"

6) Please provide me name and other contact details of the company or person who maintains the website.

      HI,
      I had filed a complaint with Dy. Registrar for gross violations in our society, even the redevelopment was carried out by blatantly ignoring Govt. Directives. In my letter I had exposed various deficiencies in the working of the society, and demanded inquiry under section 83 but no action was taken by Dy. Registrar. The complaint was filed on January 11, 2019. No Response till date.
      On 26th Feb, I escalated the matter to District Deputy Registrar, and filed the complaint who on March 7 issued an order directing Dy. Registrar of co-op societies to conduct an inquiry under section 83, but till date nothing has been done. I have copy of the order.
      I want to file an RTI in the office of District Deputy Registrar seeking information on the action taken on order issued by them to Dy. Registrar, I want to draft the application in most effective manner and probably in strong legal words.
       
      I want to seek following information:
      Status of the order dated ________ reference no _______ issued by them.
      The procedure/file noting/officer responsible to oversee the implementation of the order issued by District Dy. Registrar
      The procedure in District Dy. Registrar's office after issuing the order to Dy. Registrar to take action.
      If no such procedure is laid down to implement the said order, then guidelines/directions for implementation of the same.
      whether follow up is required from District Dy. Registrar's office after issuing the order, if YES, what is procedure for follow up? If NO reasons for lack of procedure
      Timeframe for Dy Registrar to take action on order
      Can you please help me draft the RTI on above points in clear and concise manner so that it won't be rejected on flimsy grounds.
