    I guess you had one discussion at our sister site here: http://www.bighelpers.org/forum/indi...-e-mla-mp.html

    I guess you want to use RTI Act to know about it more?

    I think from my understanding we cannot obtain information related to the security of the nation. Obtaining the information about MLA /MP's i think doesnt fall into this clause

    I would like to know whether we can use RTI to know about the professional duties of the elected representative such as MLA,MP ,Sarpanch,corporator etc.

    Dear Karhik,
    As I understand from your postings above you are mostly concerned with the applicability of RTI Act on People's representatives & how to seek information from them directly?

    Whether the Elected Representatives are coming under the purview of RTI Act is currently under debate. People's representatives are yet to declare themselves as Public Authorities. So direct access of information from them is not possible right now. Though a lot of information about their activities can be accessed from other sources.

    Similar cases are pending before the Central Commission on returned RTI application to Ms. Sonia Gandhi, MP, Shri Sahib Singh Chauhan, MLA, Smt. Sunita Sharma, Municipal Councillor, Shri Rahul Gandhi, MP.

    Some days back CIC invited comments from public on this issue. Plz have a look here http://www.cic.gov.in/PublicNotices/...g-31072008.pdf

    Once the hearing is over there will be clarity over this issue.

    Default Re: Regarding the duties of MLA and MP'S


    Hi. What i would like to know is, is there any thing written in the consititution that lists out the duties of the Elected representative. Why i am asking is, if we come to know that these are the duties of an elected representative then it would be possible for us to measure the work done by him and to come to know what else he could have done.

    Hello Karthik,

    Were you able to find the duties of M.L.A/M.P's anywhere ? I could find duties and responsibility of a Clerk or a Peon in a Municipality office but not our M.P's and M.L.A's. Isn't that interesting ?
