    Hi B srinath, WELCOME to RTI INDIA, the ocean of knowledge on RTI matters. If you need information on the Policy of IR regarding the subject mater, file RTI u/s 6(1) of the Act to the PIO, attaching a fee (say IPO) of Rupees 10/-, asking a copy of the same. Go through Guide section to know abc of RTI Rules & Fees. Centre & States have different Rules. In this august forum, feel free to clarify your doubt on RTI matters. You may encounter the following abbreviations during your search/observations, described in simple form without technical details. PA : Public Authority > The Organization/Department which possesses the information. PIO : Public Information Officer > to whom you may apply for information. Under section 6(1), apply with prescribed fees (Rules & Fees) & wait for 30(48 hrs for life & liberty) days + postal delay. FAA : First Appellate Authority > If you did not get any reply or the reply is not satisfactory, you may Appeal to FAA u/s 19(1). Wait for 30 (45 for other reasons) + postal delay. IC : Information Commission; CIC for central Govt/PSUs, SIC for State Govt/PSUs.> last step in the process, where you need to appeal u/s 19(3), within 90 days of decision of FAA. U/s 18(1), you may Complain directly to CIC/SIC, where you did not get any reply from PIO/ got misleading/False/Incomplete Information. Also you may complain where PA doesn’t have any PIO or never displays/updates RTI information on it’s website. The Act is in simple form. Just have a look to epitomize the sections. You may download various Orders of Information Commissions, High Courts & Supreme Court. Regards R K Mishra

    In addition to that, as said by karira Sir, file another RTI to get the copy of the said bill→ Also, in your 1st Appeal, pray for the information free of cost u/s 7(6) of the Act. No such fees for compilation have been prescribed under RTI Rule 2012. Even if they have already spent mony to compile information, they cannot take umbrage of any other section to shield information.

    It is very difficult to read into the minds of ICs. However, the IC as mentioned above, had decided FIVE years earlier than the famous Supreme Court Order, as quoted in the following CIC decision. @MANOJ B. PATEL ji, Pl go through the link provided by @RAVEENA_O ji to find the following post. http://www.rtiindia.org/forum/51819-disclosure-university-examination-answer-sheets-post310153.html#post310153 "FACTS Vide RTI dt 14.8.13, appellant had sought photocopy of his answer sheet for entrance exam 2013-14...... 6. The Commission is amazed to find that the Central Institute of Hindi, Agra are not complying with the directions of the Hon’ble Supreme Court in the case of Aditya Bandopadhyay Vs CBSE dt Aug 9, 2011. In this order, the Hon’ble Supreme Court had upheld the right of examinees to access their answer sheets. Denial of answer sheet to the appellant constitutes a contempt of the Supreme Court’s order. CPIO is directed to provide a copy of the answer sheet to the appellant within ten days from date of receipt of the order." Hence, the Later CIC order prevails; & is beneficial for information seekers, a blow to the vicious. R K Mishra

    Many thanks for the order Vidyaranya Gargeshwari ji The case(A K Goel Vs FAA) is an issue, where Mr Goel(former CPIO, appellant b4 CIC) has been cited as a "person" as well as a "PA". In the impugned order, it is clearly mentioned that a 1st Appeal may be filed by a "PA" as a "person".→ naturally against a PIO (no doubt, that PA as u/s 2(h), should not be the same PIO) So, I still have doubt whether or not, that case can be generalized for 1st Appeals by designated present PIO(as a person) against decision of a PIO(deemed). However, leaving the matter to get more complicated, the best option would be to go safe→ as advised earlier. R K Mishra

    Vidyaranya Gargeshwari Sir, i am interested in that order, where designated PIO can file 1st Appeal u/s 19(1) of the Act. However, as discussed, even without such appeal(or report), after receiving the forwarded application , the "delinquent officer" automatically becomes a deemed PIO u/s 5(5). Members are requested to upload/provide the link of the order. R K Mishra.

    Some of us are ignoring the statement made by the learned member. The member is not an applicant but a PIO, who has forwarded application in his department (Not to different PA). Any contradiction with the above can be corrected by the member ( vinod7674 ) himself. R K Mishra

    G.L.N. Prasad Saab, Maintaining silence cannot be the true spirit of the Act. The applicant should be communicated within thirty days. Let me tell about a notorious PA(you know better). I got reply for my RTI related to registry of IC ML after such communication. 1) i got a copy of reply(and a final reminder) from Nodal CPIO addressed to Mr. (obdurate) K L Das. This letter was sent just at the end of 30 days as defined in the Act & asked him to communicate with me directly. 2) Mr. K L Das woke up after the letter & provided information directly to me. If the Nodal CPIO would have maintained silence, no doubt, i would have gone for 1st appeal & would get reply after FAA order(happened in another case), a further delay & harassment. In my view, designated PIO should exonerate himself of all allegations by responding sincerely within specified time. In his last reminder letter(with a copy to the applicant), he should mention that the information should be provided directly to the applicant.

    Hi vinod, welcome to RTIINDIA. It seems u/s 5(4) of the Act, you have forwarded the RTI application to the official who has the information. You have also sent reminders 5 times. For the spirit of RTI & for the benefit of the applicant, kindly inform the matter to the higher officials in writing. →Not required as per Act. Send a reply to the Applicant along with copy of all the reminders (or date of reminders), that the application has been forwarded to....., mentioning the Name & address of the FAA. This shoud be done within thirty days. The obdurate official is now a deemed PIO & will face all the music as per the Act. R K Mishra

    No, It can only decide on the 2nd appeals/complaints (for the appellants/complainants) on RTI matters related to seeking information. An individual can not get relief for grievances on service matters. Through RTI He/she may ask information to the concerned PIO relating to the Rules/Procedures adopted (related to the grievance) & the data(record for actual action report/log book etc) in conformity with the Rules. To get the above information, he/she may go till Information commission level. The discrepancy between the two, may be reported to the appropriate Authority or legal relief can be sought based on the documents obtained. Provided, the employer is a Public Authority(or under), where he/she works. There are internal grievance redressal mechanisms in each Public Authority; and should be tried first(though least meaningful).

    Visit the following page to find the list of PIOs & FAA. Check whether your application has been addressed properly or not. If the same has been addressed to other PIO, that will take time for transfers. In that case, add 5 to 7 more days; then go for 1st Appeal. Many a times applicants receive Unsatisfactory reply after sending 1st Appeal based on deemed refusal. Department of Food Civil Supplies and Consumer Affairs | Government of Punjab. R K Mishra

    Though Trade Unions(most of them) enjoy public fund indirectly, so far they have not been declared as Public Authorities. Lot of effort have been made to bring their bosses(Political Parties) under the ambit of RTI. But, that has been watered down by themselves. As per resolutions taken in National RTI Convention, RTI activist Aruna Roy expressed that effort will be made to bring Trade Unions under the ambit of RTI. Till then, motivate & gather public support to bring transparency & accountability in Netas' activity. R K Mishra.

    digal replied to a thread public authority in Ask for RTI Query
    So far as PA is considered, it should satisfy the criteria as in sec 2(h) of the Act. {(h) "public authority" means any authority or body or institution of selfgovernment established or constituted— (a) by or under the Constitution; (b) by any other law made by Parliament; (c) by any other law made by State Legislature; (d) by notification issued or order made by the appropriate Government, and includes any— (i) body owned, controlled or substantially financed; (ii) non-Government organisation substantially financed, directly or indirectly by funds provided by the appropriate Government;} Enquire how the company is being 1) controlled, 2) financed or 3) owned (49% in this case) by the Govt. Even if it is 1% less than 50%, it can not be termed as NON-SUBSTANTIAL. The amount of rupees or number of Directors by Govt is SUBSTANTIAL. The argument to be taken to the commission level(complaint through sec 18), to declare the company as a PA. ========= However, parallel effort may be made to get information through other Public Authority(Govt controlling body). The information (regarding the company) that can be accessed by a controlling body, can be accessed by a citizen too. R K Mishra

    Hi Bipradeep, WELCOME to RTI INDIA, the ocean of knowledge on RTI matters. Go through Guide section to know abc of RTI Rules & Fees. Centre & States have different Rules. As per central Rules 2012(for central Govt/central PSU), the Information request should be of 500 words. Ask information in precise and pointwise. Remember, information that is available in material form can only be provided. In this august forum, feel free to clarify your doubt on RTI matters.

    And the result is... Winds of change: Productivity of Lok Sabha climbs to 103% As reported by the Times of India | Himanshi Dhawan,TNN | Aug 2, 2014. Winds of change: Productivity of Lok Sabha climbs to 103% - The Times of India NEW DELHI: Much like in government, the winds of change are blowing in the corridors of Parliament. After a deadlock of nearly three years, there is a flurry of activity on the floor of the House. In the last three weeks, the 16th Lok Sabha recorded a productivity of 103%, in sharp contrast to the 15th Lok Sabha that worked for only 61% of the scheduled time. The remarkable jump can also be partly explained by the brute majority the NDA government enjoys in the lower House. It is the first-time lawmakers who are leading the charge. In 2014, participation of first-time MPs in the debate on demand for grants increased by 58% with 158 first-timers speaking on the subject as compared to 100 in 2009. Analysis by independent body PRS Legislative Research reveals an increase of 41% in participation by new MPs in discussing the railway budget. Interest in the general budget was also high with 26% more participation by legislators in 2014 as opposed to 2009. In all, participation by first time MPs has gone up by 38.5% as compared to veterans whose participation has increased by 27% between 2009 and 2014. There are 314 first-time MPs in this Parliament, up from 302 in 2009. While it is early days yet, there is reason to believe this is not a flash in the pan. Organizations such as PRS and Swaniti that work closely with parliamentarians say they find greater awareness and accountability among legislators. "Parliament is a forum for debate and discussion. These numbers indicate that MPs are reclaiming the deliberative space of Parliament," said Chakshu Roy, head of outreach at PRS Legislative Research. "The MPs' increased participation in this session is one indicator of the seriousness with which they are approaching their role as legislators. Their participation in budgetary discussions is a healthy sign of their intent to keep the government accountable to the people," Roy added. Swaniti CEO Rwitwika Bhattacharya described the transformation among parliamentarians and constituents as "dramatic". "Accountability was most apparent in this past election than ever before. I think that we are now starting to ask, 'What is the MP doing? Have they done anything for us that we can see?' And subsequently these are also the questions we hear from MPs. 'What can I do that you think will impact people? My constituents have told me they need a hospital. Can you assess and tell me how true it is? What have you done for other MPs that you would recommend to be replicated?' These are some of the questions we hear," she said.
