    How can you say that the IC tried to protect the Public Authority? What was/were the information sought by you? What was/were the information supplied or denied? What was /were the grounds of your first appeal before FAA? What was the decision of FAA? What was the grounds for Second Appeal? What was the decision of IC?

    (1). You can make complaint against to CIC to the president of India. (2). Then you can seek the information of the status of your complaint by RTI application to the office of the president. (3). Do not forget to post the reply you get from the office of the president for the benefit of other members.

    (1). The CIC can only be removed by the President of India ( and in case SIC the governor of the state) (2). One need to make a strong complaint to the President against CIC. (3). Such that the president be convinced of, to make a reference to the Hon'ble Supreme court to inquire against CIC. (4). To make a complaint the CIC should contravene the grounds specified u/s 14(3) of the act ( and in case SIC s. 17(3) ). (5). The CIC not following the provisions of the RTI act is seen in isolation. So quick remedy against a adverse order of CIC would be Writ in High Court.

    The State Government has no such power to put a blanket ban on disclosure of such a class of information. When the matter is before the judicial forum, it is for that judicial forum to expressly forbidden to disclose any such class of information pertaining to the litigation. Even when an exemption under Sec-8 or 9 is applicable, it is for the PIO to take a decision on each request on case to case basis by recording reasons for denial. But even after that, the applicant has further right of appeal and review (2nd appeal). Material pertaining to the inter state water dispute shall not qualify exemption under Section-8 or 9. It shall not fit into any of the phrases of Sec-8(1)(a) of the Act. The Act do not confer any power to the State Governments to classify any information to belong to an exemption enumerated under Sec-8 or 9. The GR is an executive order, which cannot nullify the creation of a legislature. This GR cannot stand scrutiny of law.

    There is IC decision that repeated requests shall not be entertained, which is not correct. In fact the Public Authorities are required to reveal as many infomation as possible suo moto, to avoid repeated applications as also to avoid a situation where large (75%) resources of the public authorities are utilised for giving information. There is no dearth of citizens in this country. You can file separate RTI applications seeking same information through a few hundred citizens and the IC cannot say and establish that those are repeated applications. A citizen shall be exercising a right in the nature of a fundamental right by seeking an information under RTI from the public authority. IC is neither the authority to interpret the Right to Inforamtion Act nor the approrpiate government to clarify or amend the Act. IC has no power and authority to abridge this fundamental right of a citizen of India, merely on the ground that the citizen is repeatedly enjoying such a right. It is also not the duty of IC to evaluate the increase in wrok load of public authorities, but only required to ensure that the provisions of the Act are implemented in the right spirit. If the IC feels that the government machinery is ill equipped to fulfill the rightful aspirations flowing out of RTI Act, or required to strengthen it with men or other resources, it may give such recommendations to the appropriate government, but at any rate, the IC cannot prevent citizens from seeking information from public authorities, much less on the ground of repeated requests of information. You may now file fresh RTI Application and seek: certified copy of the note sheet indicaitng notings by various officials and decision of competent authroity on my complaint dated ................... certified copy of the report of investigation conducted by the department on my complaint dated ................ certified copy of the note sheet indicating notings by various officials and decision of competent authority on the report of investigation against my complaint dated .......... Section 8(1)(h) is that about information which would impede the process of investigation or apprehension or prosecution of offenders. Earlier denial under s.8(1)(h) clearly indicate that the department has initiated the process of investigation or prosecution on your complaint. What is now pending is the decision of the competent authority on the investigation report. Therefore there is no question of impeding the process of investigation or prosecution at this stage. Moreover, mere quoting of Section-8(1)(h) is not enough to deny the information. The PIO/FAA must give reasons as to how the disclosure of this information shall impede the process of investigation or apprehension or proseducation of offenders.

    Good work. Pensioner should have tried LIFE & LIBERTY CLAUSE with CIC demanding for information within 48 hours as pension benefits are sustenance of a family. But why should Govt., incur the expenditure for fault of Officials, The right approach must be to recover that sum from erring officials, then only officials feel accountable and act diligently towards his own colleagues.

    It is fact that no records are being maintained for village houses, as the process of seeking approvals etc., was ignored in initial days. Only if a land is registered then only one can find measurements. But if a land is divided, normally all transactions take place on Rs.20/- stamp paper, and taxation is uniform. Except asking for survey of land by paying prescribed fee before Tehasildar, the chance of getting facts is rare in villages.

    One can file appeal for all such decisions as a writ before HC. Unfortunately, ICs by seeing the standard of appellant concludes as to whether appellant goes for appeal or not, and understanding (rather taking undue advantage), may decide against appellant though facts are different. Many complaints have been made in the past against ICs to Governors. Except in one case (if i remember UP), all those complaints were simply lodged, even in that case, the removal is not on present position, but on past violations in his previous assignment.

If no action is taken, nothing is available on record (When investigation is going on) RTI Act applies for filing applications before Public Information Officer only. You have to think and modify your query suitably, seek present status, name of officer entrusted with task of investigation, time frame given, the Authority who has to take final decision, copy of the inquiry report etc.,

    The answer is only name change in Birth certificate only. If name change is done legally, that notification /order changing the name from to..... with effective date is enough and no further certificates are required. TP has not informed whether Birth certificate was obtained or not. In original birth certificate at the time of birth, when registration is done only parents name appear.

In reply to my First Appeal, the AA stated vide his letter dt. 19.11.2013 that the matter is still under consideration of the Competent Authority & a final decision is yet to be taken & hence denied the information u/s.8(1)(h). As to date it is more than 8 months have lapsed from the date of Order of AA,there should have been some improvement or may be the investigation might have completed & Report might have submitted by this time & if it is so,is it possible for me to file a fresh RTI application to know the status of my complaint & action taken by the Department against the offender? Can I directly apply to AA? Kindly reply me & will be much appreciated. Thanks in advance. Venugopal.S.
