    Dear member,This Portal do not supply any information but only helps in getting information under RTI Act and dedicated to discussing issues related to the RTI Act 2005. so, you will not get any answers here to general doubts and requests for help in non RTI related matters. Yet, immediate file a complaint to police or in concerned court. Do not worry about 'backdoor job opportunity' matter because it is not concerned with a crime of cheating and criminal breach of trust committed by culprit.

    PATNA: Independence of judiciary and quality of judges should be maintained despite "stress and strain", said President Pranab Mukherjee at the Patna high court's centenary celebrations on Saturday. The President, who was the chief guest of the function, said the elected public representatives would have strong desire for populist measures which might affect individual rights, but the judiciary has the duty to show red flag to any infringement on a citizen's fundamental rights.

    The Statue of Unity seems to be on shaky ground, literally. For environmentalists have petitioned to the Pune Bench of the National Green Tribunal (NGT), alleging that the statue is being built on an eco-sensitive zone on the Narmada riverbed, which has geological faultlines. Besides, its closeness to the Shoolpaneshwar Sanctuary is bound to threaten the biodiversity there. The ambitious project by the Gujarat government to construct the 182-metre Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel statue — touted to be the tallest in the world — 3.2 km downstream of the Narmada Dam on an island in the middle of the Narmada river has been strongly condemned by activists on another count as well, the fact that no Environmental Clearance (EC) had been issued Read more at; Activists move NGT over Statue of Unity - Ahmedabad Mirror

    For the first time in the history of internet campaigns in India, a protest movement has successfully changed the course of a debate without having to take to the streets. The net neutrality movement is being fought almost totally in the virtual world. Hashtag activism isn't new in India. In recent times, several big campaigns have been bolstered by the internet which helped mobilize mass support and kept people constantly updated on events. Pink Chaddi, Jan Lokpal and the Nirbhaya movements were some examples of successful on-the-ground campaigns that were galvanized by social media. But they still needed public action — dharnas, candlelight vigils and actual pink undies — to make a difference. Read more at; Net neutrality: Net activism packs a punch - The Times of India

    CHANDIGARH: More than a decade old struggle demanding abolition of contract labour system at PGI, which started in 1996, came to an end after the central government issued gazette notification prohibiting engagement of contract labour."There has been unreasonable delay in issuing gazette notification. Therefore, on October last year, the PGI Contract Workers Union filed a RTI application to know its status. It was informed under RTI that after finalization of the case and publication of notification, the requisite information may be provided but in vain," said Ashwani Munjal, president of the PGI union.Read at: http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/city/chandigarh/No-more-contract-labour-at-Chandigarhs-PGI/articleshow/46974169.cms

    While left wing extremism (LWE) — the government's preferred phrase for Naxal-related violence — has caused over 20,000 deaths in the country since 1980, it is not the extremists or the security forces who have suffered the most. Data accessed by The Hindu shows that a majority of those killed were civilians.In fact, the ongoing conflict has claimed at least one life every single day over a 35-year period beginning 1980. The total body count, as on June 30, 2013, stood at 19,327, according to information obtained under the Right to Information Act.The information was provided by the Naxal Management Division of the Union Ministry of Home Affairs to Delhi-based RTI activist Ved Pal, under the Right to Information Act.Read at: Civilians biggest casualty of Naxal violence - The Hindu

    On September 30 last year, the Union home ministry, in an unprecedented move, issued show cause notices to 10,331 organizations receiving foreign aid in one go, asking why they had not filed their annual returns since 2009 and warning that their Foreign Contribution Regulation Act (FCRA) license stood in danger of being cancelled. The action impacted one fourth of all registered NGOs in the country, numbering 43,527 at last count. You could say the crackdown began that day.

    Observing that giving details of individual medical bills of Supreme Court judges under RTI would “amount to invasion of their privacy”, the Delhi High Court on Friday dismissed a plea seeking details of medical reimbursements of Supreme Court judges under the RTI Act. A bench of Chief Justice G Rohini and Justice Deepa Sharma in its judgment on a plea by RTI activist Subhash Chandra Aggarwal has held that there was no larger public interest involved in seeking details of medical facilities availed by individual judges and “no direction whatsoever” could be issued under the Right to Information Act.

In case of doubts, if the state rules permit it is always proper to affix Rs.10/- adhesive court fee stamp on application to avoid confusion. (Members must atleast inform the state or place of Public Authority. Applicant can only purchase and send postal orders but can not pay postal orders--and as Ward was mentioned, it is presumed that information relates to Municipality or Corporation and a search in their website in RTI segment may provide more details on the issue)

    Just search in Google with key words "Applying for Ration card in Virugambakkam area, Tamil Nadu......state". You may personally meet Ration shop dealer in Virugambakam or contact your neighbor and learn about the procedure, which is much easier and speedy than to resort to RTI. Different states have different procedures, and some states have made this service available through E.Seva (electronic) which is much easier.

    If SPIO neither provides information nor denies information within 30 days from date of Receipt of RTI Application, First appeal has to be filed before First Appellate Authority, an official superior to SPIO with grounds of Appeal "deemed denial" praying FAA to direct SPIO to provide information as expeditiously as possible free of cost. Normally, every Public Authority maintains a website, where they have to provide particulars of SPIO & FAA in an uploaded information. In case of doubt, First Appeal can be sent to SPIO with a covering letter requesting him to send the appeal to FAA under copy to Appellant. Please send all appeals only by registered post and preserve postal receipts. Wait for 55 days from date of registering first appeal, and then file second appeal to Information Commission if FAA fails to give orders or if PIO fails to provide correct, complete and relevant information.

As Police is a state subject, application has to be filed before SPIO of that Police station by Regd., post with RTI fee prescribed for the state. A general format is being provided for information. Information can not be denied because it is not prescribed format alone. Application dt.....seeking information under RTI Act. Public Authority: SPIO,............Police Station,................

(It is likely that when there is no progress/attention paid for investigation, SPIO denies information stating Sec.8 exemption that investigation is not completed, and providing information may impede the progress of investigation. But applicant should make a first appeal against denial, as it PIO that has to specifically state as to how providing that information impede course of investigation.

    A concluded contract is in public domain. The contract agreement is entered into between the contracto5r and the department, much after the acceptance of the offer by the competent authority. Neither the contract agreement, nor the schedule of items are confidential. In fact, there is CVC Guidelines to upload all concluded contracts on web sites. Therefore there is no question of confidentiality in this case. FAA is wrong is making such a statement. PIO/FAA cannot deny any documents pertaining to a concluded contract. Moreover, mere classification of confidentiality is not enough, the PIO or FAA must bring out the reason as to how the concluded tender is confidential and how it is qualified for exemption and under which sub-clause of Section-8.

    Recruitment is a public activity and the applications invited for the recruitment involves public interest. Therefore the applications are in public domain and and do not qualify for exemption under sec-8(1)(j) and hence required to be supplied under RTI. Please remember, the information can be denied only if it is exempted under any of the clauses of Section-8 or under section-9, else the information must be denied.

The apex court also asked the secretary of the ministry to be present on the next date of hearing on May 1. The social justice bench of the apex court comprising Justice Madan B. Lokur and Justice Uday Umesh Lalit took umbrage over the insensitive approach of the ministry. - See more at: 404- Page not found. | The News Minute

    JAMMU, Apr 17: Despite misuse of the Right to Information Act to pursue hidden agenda, the State Government has adopted contemptuous approach towards High Court’s directions for revisiting of existing Rules of the Act during the past nearly eight months. Now, feeling handicapped in taking action on frivolous applications, the State Information Commission has made a fervent appeal to the State Government to have a serious look on the issue so that legislation doesn’t become a tool for putting unwarranted pressure on the public authorities.The Division Bench of State High Court comprising Justice Virender Singh and Justice Janak Raj Kotwal, in a Public Interest Litigation titled B R Manhas Versus State of J&K and Others, had directed the State Government to repeal the existing RTI Rules and frame fresh ones to make various provisions of the Act workable and achieve the very purpose envisaged in enacting of the legislation.Read at: Govt adopts contemptuous attitude towards HC’s directions for revisiting RTI Rules
