नमस्ते

आर टी आई इंडिया मंच में स्वागत है WELCOME to RTI INDIA - Your right to know - the Compete Right to Information Portal of India . READ THIS http://www.rtiindia.org/guide/browsecategory.php?do=popentries

 

RTI GUIDE Guide

What INFORMATION you need about public toilets? In Mumbai these are under the control of the BMC. You can only seek information available in material form i.e. documents or samples etc. You cannot ask questions to them like "Why toilets are not cleaned daily?". Instead, you can seek information - supply me [1] certified copy of the contract awarded for cleaning and maintenance of Toilets in .................Square, ................... Road, ....................... area [2] List of staff responsible for supervision and certification of the work of cleaning and maintenance of Toilets in .................Square, ................... Road, ....................... area etc. You can pinpoint the toilet with structure (if written on that structure like building no, or toilet no. etc).

You should address the RTI Application to the Public Information Officer, BMC, DN Road, Mumbai 40001. You should not ask those questions, but seek information that contains answer to your questions. YOu can go to the PIO's Office and submit an application for inspection of records and find out much more details or documents that contain these information, if you are not able to identify the documents.

Hi.

Today i need help from you as this is my first time am using RTI as a weapon for my rights..so i need help from you in framing the questions in correct manner,so for that i would like to explain you the scenario.

In my locality there is one Public toilet which was constructed almost 8 years back with the help of BMC but the contract was given to a private contractor.it took almost 2 to 3(2002-2004) years for that toilet to be constructed completely and then again after 1 year(2005) its was opened for public use and this is not Pay and use toilet..that toilet is a 3 storey toilet which is divided in two parts A & B. A side was declared as male side and B as female. In A Side there are total 10 seats including 1st floor and ground floor and same is with B side 5 seats on ground floor and 5 seats on 1st floor..but as i told you that the toilet is opened up for public use in 2005 and within a month the B side which is the Female side started to leak from 1st floor as the connections of Pipes were from outside so the waste was flowing into the chawls near that toilet,so they stopped the use of it and never repaired that fault then after 1 more month the ground floor on B side(for Females) started to get choked up so that is also stopped from using but again never repaired. so after few days as women's were facing problems,so we decided to share A side(for males) and came to a decision that women will use 1st floor and only for sometime till that B side get repaired. but as we did this since then there is no any Repairing done and as there is one Sanstha who is responsible to take care of it when we asked them to get it repaired they told us that they dont have Funds to repair it but the truth is that every house in that locality pays the Monthly charge of RS 20 for the toilet use and there are almost 200 hundred family who using this toilet..and since 2005 till now we are using this toilet in same manner by sharing the 1st floor..and there is no cleanliness in that toilet, sometimes they don't even clean it for 2 or 3 months.and as i told you that it is been constructed by a private contractor so before the construction work starts RS 300 hundred is been collected from each house. so please help me how to frame questions and to whom should ask my queries..please help
