The first question is as to whether the Lottery is having such permissions/approvals/sanctions etc.

Now that they have identified public authority, as the process has already started, wait for their response.

Depending on their response you can go for first appeal if possible.

It is still doubtful whether endowments/temples are Public authority or not.

You ought to have asked whether the temple is having such permissions to conduct such lotteries and entire set of documents submitted by them temple authorities while seeking permission if any for conducting such lottery and approvals with such conditions by authorities.

Sir, how the govt authority cannot take the cognizance of such matter, it meaning do the temple management fool the public anytime by printing such unaccountable lotteries and do the fraud with the public without maintaining the transparency in the lottery sale,

Please advise your best for solutions on such matters,

Thank you!

The Director of Small savings and lotteries are not the custodian of the information pertaining to temple, and treating that the information may be available with such Mamalatdar, they have rightly transferred to him.

The fact to be determined in this issue is "Who is the custodian of that information" ? 

Mamalatdar has not stated that information is not available with him but stated that Temple is not a public authority, when the RTI Application was not made to the temple but Mamlatdar.

If the application is made to temple directly, then they can ignore the application stating that they are not public authority.

But in this case, Mamalat dar is denying information stating that Temple is not a public authority, ignoring the fact of the custodian of the so called information and not stated that the information is not available with him but stated that Temple is not a public authority.

Even when temple is not a public authority, that information available with any Public Authority regarding such temple are Public record with that public authority.  A document filed and in custody of a public authority in performing of their functions is a public document.

Hence the denial of information stating that temple is not a public authority is not proper, when that information is not stated as not available with him as public record.   Mamalatdar must provide all the information on temple available with him as public record though it belongs to a private citizen or non public entity.

Go for First Appeal on the above grounds to FAA over Mamalatdar (He has not provided FAA details which are mandatory, include this also as grounds for first appeal)

You can also explore possibility of issuing notice under CP Act to temple and file a complaint against temple management for deficiency of service is not providing the valid information.

Sir,

Please help me to know more clarity on CP act of temple, to file a complaint.

Please help me to supply the content for first Appeal to be drafted under FAA, 

Thank you, 

Damodar Divkar.

The grounds for appeal duly numbered as i to vi and prayer was incorporated in the earlier reply.

In CP Act, there are two important issues involved.

1.You have to pay some kind of fee, consideration for availing a service/purchase a product. and must have promised or paid that consideration to opposite party.

2.The opposite party after receiving such consideration must have failed to perform his part of obligation that amounts to either negligence or deficiency of service and thus the complainant was deprived of the service assured by OP.

3.Then one has to approach to District forum stating as to what service was expected by complainant, what are the services provided generally by OP, what and when consideration was paid, how and when the OP failed to perform his obligation (deficiency of service), when a notice was issued showing such deficiency to OP, what was the reply by OP and what was required as remedy from OP by complainant.

In a forum dedicated to RTI, members are not supposed to expect secretarial services pertaining to all acts but has to expect only precise guidance.

 

Please do not quote all the replies as you are consuming most of the space for simple reply through the quotes.  The reply at the maximum should be in three or four meaningful sentences and it is not possible to write essays and make it a booklet.  Respect members time and levels of their patience.

Sir,

I have submitted the First Appeal to the Appellate Authority to dycollector at Mormugao Goa.

However Department of Consumer Affairs has disposed  my grievance stating lottery is not an product and its purchased for profit gains and its not covered under consumer protection act.

You are a regular member with 184 posts and practically grass root level activist.  Continue the same grounds showing different earlier reasons for denying information.  Once the information is not available , SIC can not do any thing.  If you recall the earlier lengthy posts, the first issue is who should issue such permission for such lottery..who is running the lottery is not relevant.

If the lottery is illegal and unauthorised , the authorities should probe into such illegal activity, when they had such knowledge on illegal lottery.
