    karira replied to a thread Article 356 in Ask for RTI Query
    I remember that the report sent by the AP Governor on the situation in AP (before the state split) was disclosed by the Home Ministry after a RTI was filed. Cant locate now. RTI was filed by Rakesh Reddy Dubuddu from Hyderabad/Warangal. Article 74 is about advise rendered by the Cabinet to the President. Article 356 is about the Governors report to president. The two are different.

    When practicing RTI OR reading orders/judgments like this........DO NOT think like Mahatma Gandhi. Think like a "devil". Prasadgaru, please read once again carefully ! Sometimes, 1 + 1 = 11 ! 1. Who is the petitioner in this case before the Madras HC ? 2. What type of information was asked ? (Many more things to be "noticed"....cant reveal all, but there are there in the judgment - in black and white. All you need to do is notice them between the lines) Things will be come crystal clear as to how such a judgment came about.

    Indrajit, The RTI Act 2005 has many more such inconsistencies, mistakes, shortcomings and plain blunders. This is what happens when the quality of drafting is poor, the quality of legislators is poorer and Acts are passed in a hurry - ultimately, you and me suffer ! Just reflect on the situation : if an ordinary citizen like you can find such inconsistencies in an Act passed by Parliament, what else must be the blunders which we haven't found as yet ! To lighten your mood (but on the same subject), please read: I am the Parliamentary Draftsman

    This is the common sense and logical approach. If you have been to the CIC and interacted with their officers and staff you would have realised that there is a deficiency of "sense" in the CIC - specially the "common" kind.

    PIO is supposed to provide information to a RTI applicant based on the request made in that application. If you did not receive the application filed by the applicant, you can obviously not do anything. If the applicant does not receive the information, he will file a first appeal and then also has a chance for a second appeal. If there is a mischief somewhere in your office, it will come out at that time.

    11 Problems with the New Consumer Protection Act The government is planning sweeping changes in the Act, most of which are highly regressive The Consumer Protection (Amendment) Act, 2014, as made available in the website of Department of Consumer Affairs, has certain serious flaws, which will neither benefit the consumer nor the hapless voluntary consumer organisations that work for consumers. The Act has proposed certain amendments to the Consumer Protection Act that would entrust the job of grievance redressal to a new body, Consumer Protection Authority. In this authority structure, there is neither any place for consumer organisations nor for consumers and activists. There is even a proposal to exclude the value of compensation from the pecuniary jurisdiction of the Forum and Commission, which would restrict consumer litigants to the lowest forums and prevent them from approaching higher bodies. How is this in the interests of the consumers or consumer activism? Here are 11 ways in which the new Act will be regressive step. 1 A. Changing the structure of Consumer Consultations Consumer Protection Act, 1986 envisages consultations through the Central and the State Councils consisting of different interest groups such as representatives of consumerorganizations, the government –State and Centre, trade and industry, consumer fora, especially, the National Commission and others. The proposed amendments will eliminate the Central and State Councils. This is a cynical ploy to keep out the consumer groups from the consultation process and in a way raises serious questions about their relevance and role in safeguarding the consumers. So the proposal to convert the Consumer Protection Councils as existing under section-4 to Consumer Protection Authority is ill conceived and should be dropped, to save whatever little consumer movement is prevalent at present. 1 B. Asking District Collectors / District Magistrates, to deal with theconsumer issues This proposal, on the basis of which the Central Consumer Protection Authority has been envisaged, is practically non-workable. The absurdity is all the more obvious when one considers that at the state and central levels, fully paid government officials are expected to discharge the functions of the Central Authority, while at the district level, where the problems are supposed to emanate and be addressed, an already over burdened District Collector is supposed to do it as a part of his routine.

    Yes there are two judgments from different HCs. That is why I am spending Rs. 15000 from my pocket and fly all the way to Delhi just for a day to attend the FA hearing in person. Wont let them off this time.... Losing one or two appeals/complaints can be condoned BUT losing a total of 67 from the same person over a period of 3 years - is TOTALLY unacceptable. They should be made to realise that, made to feel embarrassed and also suffer the consequences.

    CIC reserves its order after govt messes up procedure The state general administration department (GAD) has messed up with the right to information (RTI) procedure in regard to an application to get details of appointment process of chief secretary Anthony de Sa. In contravention of rules, the department conducted the first appeal hearing on the RTI application 11 months after the it was filed and six months after the applicant filed a complaint with State Information Commission (SIC) that the first appeal hearing was not being conducted. More interestingly, the first appeal hearing came three days after the first hearing date of the complaint at SIC was already over and the general administration department officials had failed to attend the hearing. After going through the matter and hearing out the applicant Ajay Dubey who took major objection to the violation of rules, the chief information commissioner (CIC) KD Khan reserved his order on the matter on Tuesday. According to rules, the reply of RTI application is to be given within a month. If the applicant does not receive this reply and files first appeal, this has to be disposed by the appellate authority within a month too. However, in this case, the RTI application was filed by Dubey at the GAD on September 19, 2013 and the first appeal was filed on October 24 the same year. After not receiving any response from the department for five months, Dubey filed a complaint under Section 18 of RTI with SIC on March 12 this year. Documents available with HT show that this complaint hearing at SIC came up on September 8, 2014 but the GAD public information officer failed to attend. Another hearing was then scheduled for Tuesday (September 16), when the GAD official submitted before the commission that the first appeal hearing was conducted by GAD appellate authority (principal secretary Ashwani Kumar Rai) on September 12, 2014 and it was decided that the information could not be provided to RTI applicant because it was not an issue of public interest.

    No stay on Shetty murder case closure proceedings MUMBAI: The Bombay high court on Wednesday directed the investigating officer in the Pune RTI activist Satish Shetty murder probe to explain an allegation that he was "pressurized by superiors'' to file a closure report in the case but did not stay the closure proceedings in a Pune court. The HC order by a bench of Justices V M Kanade and P D Kode was passed while hearing a petition filed by Shetty's brother Sandeep Shetty, who questioned the closure and wanted it set aside. He named Ranjeet Singh CBI director and other top officers including special director Anil Singh and joint director Keshav Kumar personally as respondents as well as the Investigating officer in the petition. The HC however after hearing preliminary objections raised by CBI counsel Hiten Venegaonkar did not issue notice to the CBI director and other officers. The closure report filed last month before a Maval magistrate is since pending for orders before a Pune sessions court. The directors did not act in their personal capacity and only the CBI must be named, the judges agreed. Read More: No stay on Shetty murder case closure proceedings - The Times of India

    Article has been published without doing any research or background info check...... As it is, Ex CIC RM was ONLY passing between 150 to 190 orders every month. With the kind of pendency , it will take 40 months ..... ie 3.5 years for the last appeal to be heard. In such a scenario what difference does one or two more months make. Better to select the most competent person as CIC with delay rather than suffer a incompetent person as CIC for the next few years ! ============= All the pressure being brought about by NCPRI and CHRI in the media, on this issue, is purely motivated.

Filed the first appeal for "misleading and incorrect" information. Will travel to Delhi for the FAA hearing and make it the most heated hearing ever faced by that FAA. 3. Have a CIC order on missing records and will ask FAA to implement the same directions in this case 4. If FAA order is not favourable, move Delhi HC 5. Will NOT resubmit any of them again. Whats the use...they will lose them again. 6. Create a ruckus during the next CIC convention
