Representation of #RTI Applicant was not shown to the Prime Minister of India, Shri Narendra Modi

Recommended Posts


The appellant stated that the Prime Minister Office should inform him whether his representation dated 19.08.2016 relating to the constitution of ‘National Foundation’ in the memory of Mahatma Gandhi was shown to the Prime Minister of India, Shri Narendra Modi.


The Prime Minister Office replied that Normally the petitions are not placed before the Prime Minister, and are handled at the level

of senior officers in the PMO as per the delegated duties. In certain cases, the petitions are put up before the Prime Minister, as decided by the senior officers.


Besides, he stated that the appellant’s representation was not shown to the Prime Minister of India.

That is known to every one and appeared in the forum, and members were asked not to assume and make copies to PM and Copy to PS etc. A subordinate staff segregates the petitions ministry wise, and a uniform copy and page table will be filled by a clerk and the bunch of applications will be sent to that Ministry with individual copy to citizen who has filed the petition asking him to make further follow up with Ministry, and there petition is laid to rest.

Let us be practical and consider whether PM of India can go through each and every petition. One may be hearing news of one school student getting reply from PM etc., and they are just publicity stunts.

It is very difficult to any citizen to bring PM's attention to his petition.

However, in case of very important, and in very larger public interest petitions that touch / cater to the benefit of entire country are invariably brought to the attention of PM. But the selection process of not reading the petition is bringing these issues.

      The RTI application was filed in the Prime Minster's Office (PMO).
      1) The PMO transferred the RTI to the Cabinet Secretariat u/s 6(3). The CabSec replied that the said info is not in their records.
      2) The CPIO of the PMO also transferred it to the Union Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) u/s 6(3). The CPIO of the MHA then transferred it to the National Archives of India (NAI). No reply was received from either the MHA or the NAI
      3) After the refusal of info by the CabSec, a First Appeal was filed whose decision is pending.
      4) After the lapse of the 30 days deadline for the CPIOs. First Appeals were filed with both MHA and NAI.
      5) No reply has been received w.r.t. any First Appeal.
      Q.1) What should be done after the lapse of 45 days deadline for the Appellate Authorities?
      Q.2) The RTI application was transferred to multiple authorities. Who is the main CPIO and FAA now?
      Q.3) When the Second Appeal is filed, will all the four CPIOs and the four FAAs (i.e. PMO, CabSec, MHA and NAI) will be named in the Second Appeal?
