Practise Filing One Application in Month under RTI

 

Mangalore, Nov 5: �For the betterment of your own, make a practice of filing at least one application in a month under the Right To Information (RTI) Act,� said renowned RTI activist Shailesh Gandhi.

 

He was addressing the Citizens at Lions Seva Mandir here on Saturday November 3.

 

He further said that by filing the application one can shake the government.

The entire administrative machinery can be reformed in three years, if 25 to 30 lac people, out of 100 crore population, file the application seeking information under the RTI Act, he informed.

 

In order to make effective use of the most powerful weapon, it is necessary that all should have a strong will in the form of the RTI Act, he added.

After a long, continued struggle the Act came into existence, said Gandhi. It was also an ideal democratic tool to realize the dream of Sampurna Swaraj, he added.

 

All these year the biggest democracy remained a participatory democracy and not functional democracy. So today with the RTI act in hand, we can make it function for the betterment of the country, he added.

 

RTI Act will help in getting rid of the habit of blaming the system and will give the strength to shake the system, he said.

This is very good idea. However, the people should raise the issues of public importance and not file an application for mere filing of the same.

Then, like Major Ravindran in Pallakad (Kerala), we all will also be "blacklisted" by our respective SIC's....

:) If SIC of HP took such step, I will definitely agitate this order. However, the SIC of HP have started recognising me, as I have already appeared before it in number of cases. In fact, last time the CIC asked me to take some classes to trains the PIOs of the State.

Very Nice Idea. Each member should file atleast one application under RTI Act. We will have the following benefits

 

1. The fear from Government officers will go out

 

2. We will know the lacuna in the act.

 

Further the information received must be used to eradicate the problems. Mere getting the information is not the solution. Suppose one knows the fate of issue of his passport but still he is unable to get it, is not the solution. This forum must educate to use the informations further too.

Major Ravindran (Palghat) has taken every step possible, including organising 'Dharna'. Nothing happened. You name any step. Major Ravindran has gone to the extreme. Most of the public servants in Kerala unlike HP are immunue to everything except deterant punishments, bribe, nepotism, political mileage etc. If one want to get anything done, presently one has to resort to any of these means.

yes i agree with u, because there are so many problems in our system, by filing a RTI we can put a pressure on the system.:)

I agree with you. Merely teaching and studying theory will not solve the problem. So best way either self filing RTI for our own cause or for public cause will educate us.

There may be some teething problem initially but it will be the only solution for both the ends (those seeking the information and those giving the information).

keep going.

Let us educate one to file one RTI application once a month or if not possible bimonthly once but we should start it. I have already started educating people. and last month one application has been filed I have taken railway as the target. Let each one of us take one office as target. This month I have to file the appeal for him to FAA. If each one of take one ofice as target then probably we can change the entire system. we will overcome any teething problem. Let us also have our frnds to be member to this forum.

If One is getting Black listed for this, It is of No worry. Just Remember how many freedom Fighters got Black listed By British Government.

Hats off to your way of thinking and concern for the nation. And if any SIC acts unreasonably we always have the option of approaching the High court.

Forget govt officrs, the govt will be on toes.....

today most of the govt is running on 50% of staff strength...

Delhi Govt is running on 44%

So, this will in effect divert most of the employees on providinng only the information not the solution...

if one file a complaint then he will see blank files only in RTI reply as no one will be there to make any file on it...

See there r one billion citizens...even if 10% use this weapon against govt then 10 crore applications...

see the scenario and think over it...

I dont think mere not asking the information will reduce the work load . The only solution is to post adequate staff.

On a lighter note, this may inspire someone to file an RTI query asking what is the shortfall in staff strength and what measures have been taken to fill the vacant posts.

:D
