Question

What is the procedure to look for some information pertaining to the BMC (Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation). I basically want to find out the kind of revenues the BMC makes from hoardings / outdoor advertising put up in the city

You have to do this by way of making an RTI application on BMC. Please go through the contents of the home page of our portal @ RTI INDIA - Your right to know - the Compete Right to Information Portal of India and get yourself acquainted with the basics of RTI first.

 

Ensure that you are following the Maharashtra rules before making the application. They are available at the Guide section of our portal: Mahrashtra RTI Rules - Guide

Dear Picshar,

As suggested by Ganpat Sir. Submit an application to the PIO, Office of the Commissioner, MCGM which is located on the first floor and the entry is from opposite CST behind the statue of Sir PM. Do not ask questions but ask for information for a particular period, say from 2001 till date. Affix a court fee stamp of Rs.10 on the application. Most likely they would say the information is voluminous and direct you to take inspection because no department in BMC has adhered to Section 4 provisions. Mention in your application that the PIO does not enjoy powers to enforce inspection and it is only your prerogative as the applicant to take information. Ask for information in catelogued and indexed format. If they do not respond or take umbrage of flimsy grounds, which happens quite often, be firm and also give them a notice in the application itself that you intend to use the response before a court of law. Share the info on this page. It would be interesting reading. Good luck and Happy information seeking.
