    karira replied to a thread About corruption in Non RTI Issues
    Please read: http://www.rtiindia.org/forum/docs/court-judgements-rti-issues/277-meaning-allegations-corruption-sec-24-a As mentioned above, the expression pertaining to allegation of corruption cannot be exhaustively defined. The Act is to step-in-aid to establish the society governed by law in which corruption has no place. The Act envisages a transparent public office. Therefore, even in organizations which are exempt from the provisions of the Act, in terms of the notification issued under Section 24(4) of the Act, still information which relates to corruption or the information which excludes the allegation of corruption would be relevant information and cannot be denied for the reasons that the organization is exempted under the Act. The information sought in the present case is in respect of the number of vacancies which have fallen to the share of the specified category and whether such posts have been filled up from amongst the eligible candidates. If such information is disclosed, it will lead to transparent administration which is antithesis of corruption. If organization has nothing to hide or to cover a corrupt practice, the information should be made available. The information sought may help in dispelling favoritism, nepotism or arbitrariness. Such information is necessary for establishing the transparent administration. Therefore, we do not find any illegality in the order passed by the State Information Commissioner, Haryana and affirmed by learned Single Judge in the orders impugned in the present appeals.

    Govt departments ignore Vishaka guidelines on sexual harassment Sexual harassment at workplaces is a concern, but not for Delhi Police. An RTI query about the status of Complaints Committee under the Supreme Court's 1997 Vishaka guidelines has revealed that the North District of the Delhi Police has not even formed the committee. According to the guidelines every organisation has to form such a committee to deal with complaints of sexual harassment at workplaces. However, the RTI query filed by social activist Rajhans Bansal has revealed that no committee was formed by the North District of Delhi Police. While Delhi Police's inaction is shocking, RTI reply revealed that complaints committees in several Union ministries don't deal with many complaints. Most of the government departments have formed the committees in accordance with the guidelines, but interestingly they don't receive many complaints of sexual harassment, the RTI reply revealed. In their replies almost all the government departments have stated that they have received only one or two complaints.

    Technically, he cannot reject the request for information just because a envelope was not attached. The PIO should ask for the envelope to be sent OR demand the additional fees, if any.

    Govt advertises for appointment of new CIC | Business Standard News Giving up convention of appointing the senior-most Information Commissioner as the Chief of the Central Information Commission, the Centre today advertised the position inviting applications from the general public. The Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT), the nodal ministry for RTI matters, has invited applications from the people in a given format before November 24. According to the Act, the Chief Information Commissioner (CIC) shall be a person of eminence in public life with wide knowledge and experience in law, science and technology, social service, management, journalism, mass-media or administration and governance. All the CICs appointed so far have been retired bureaucrats. The position has been lying vacant after Rajiv Mathur, former Chief of Intelligence Bureau, retired on August 22. Read More: Govt advertises for appointment of new CIC | Business Standard News ================ NEW DELHI: Two months after the Central Information Commission was left headless, the government has sought applications for the post. The absence of a chief information commissioner not only leaves all decisions made by the commission up for challenge in a court of law but has also had an adverse impact on the pending backlog of cases. The notice issued by the department of personnel and training (DoPT) on Friday gives applicants time till November 24 to submit their resumes. The RTI act provides that the CIC must be a person of eminence in public life with wide knowledge and experience in law, science and technology, social service, management among other fields. The notice comes after activist Lokesh Batra had sought to know action being taken by the government on the appointment of the CIC and the information commissioners. Other activists and former information commissioners too had written to President Pranab Mukherjee and PM Narendra Modi seeking urgent appointments to the positions. The Central Information Commission has been headless since August 22, 2014. Expressing grave concern at the state of affairs activists including Aruna Roy, Nikhil Dey, former chief information commissioner Wajahat Habibullah and former information commissioner Deepak Sandhu Gandhi had pointed to the backlog of close to 25,000 appeals and complaints pending in the commission. "Often people have to wait for more than a year for their appeals and complaints to be heard. The lack of a chief information commissioner will cause the pendency in the commission to further increase," the letter to the President said.

    I have already responded that there is no obligation on the CAPIO of the postal department to forward your appeal within a specific time period. That obligation is restricted to RTI applications seeking "information". =============== In any case, my opinion on using the designated Post Office route for submitting RTI applications has been expressed many times on the forum. This route and the Call centre route (like Bihar) are totally illegal....since none of the departments in the Centre have designated Post Office APIOs as their own APIOs. That is why I use only the "traditional" methods of submitting RTIs.

    Seven months on, Assam Information Commission has no Commissioner For seven months now, since the term of Mohan Chandra Malakar as State Information Commissioner came to an end, the Assam State Information Commission has been “functioning” without any Commissioner. And, appeals have been piling up, with officials in the Commission putting the latest figure at 4147. The last Chief Information Commissioner on the other hand had retired two years ago. The State Information Commission in Assam, which has provisions to appoint two Commissioners apart from the CIC, has been mostly functioning with just one Commissioner. The list of persons occupying that post comprises only of retired bureaucrats and IPS officers. Malakar however is a former PCCF (Wildlife). “While the State Information Commission has remained defunct for seven months now, public authorities are least bothered to provide information in response to RTI applications. They know that there is no appelate authority at the top, and nobody can pull them up for this,” said Saito Basumatary, coordinator of the People’s Rights Forum (PRF). “Common people at the grassroots level have been blatantly denied information related to PDS, food and other benefits for BPL families,” Basumatary said. Attempts by the Forum to seek the governor’s intervention to make the Commission functional has also found no response. The Forum is now contemplating filing a PIL. “It has been over six weeks that we applied for an appointment with the governor by specifically mentioning the status of the State Information Commission. But there has been no response,” Basumatary rued. IH Borbora, a regular RTI user however says he is not surprised that the Congress government kept the Information Commission defunct. “Though the chief minister often takes pride in saying that Assam was one of the first few states to have had its own RTI Act even before the central Act came, keeping the State Information Commission in a non-functioning state only makes it clear that the government either has things to hide or has no respect for law,” Borbora, also a State Resource Person for RTI, said. Nilima Chayengiya Mipun, recently appointed secretary of the State Information Commission admitted that the number of appeals has been accumulating. “As on date there are 4174 appeals lying with the Commission,” she said. When Malakar term ended in March, there were roughly 1500 appeals pending disposal. That the state government’s interest towards the Commission has been lackadaisical is also evident from the fact that officers were sent as Secretary to the Commission mostly on a temporary basis until Mipun took over recently. While Md Jiauddin Ahmed retired as Secretary in June 2013 after serving for seven years, three officers were posted on temporary charge one after the other, till Mipun joined. “It is very unfortunate that the state government has not bothered to let the Assam State Information Commission function smoothly. By depriving the citizens of information, the state government has done a criminal act,” said Debajit Goswami, secretary of the Assam RTI Forum. “RTI applicants are not just denied information, but are threatened, coerced, assaulted and even killed. But the government is not bothered,” complained Goswami. While former IPS officers like S Mooshahary, DN Dutt and retired bureaucrats like BK Gohain and MC Malakar have found post-retirement postings as State Information Commissioners in Assam, the name of another IAS officer on the verge of retirement is doing the rounds as the next SIC. “The selection committee has recently met and an announcement appointing a Commissioner will be made very soon,” Rajiv Kumar Bora, principal secretary, personnel, told The Indian Express today. Bora said though the state government had made its move to appoint a successor to Malakar in January itself, the announcement of Lok Sabha elections and subsequent election of Sirajuddin Ajmal, leader of AIUDF (the largest opposition group) to Lok Sabha had delayed the entire process. “The Committee comprising the chief minister, a senior cabinet minister and leader of the AIUDF has already made the selection, and a formal notification will be out soon,” Bora said. He however did not mention the name of the person selected. - See more at: Page not found | The Indian Express

    This is a classic case of "robbing Peter to pay Paul" The Banks use the common citizens money. It is either from the share capital (which belongs to the shareholders) or from lakhs of small depositors who keep the money in their savings accounts of FD's. A major portion of this money is then given to large corporates, which later become NPAs.

    It is totally incorrect.... and an excuse to just get rid of the pending cases. The WBSIC should have decided the matter on the basis of available records. Please do the following: 1. What do the West Bengal RTI Rules state about the presence of appellant during the hearing ? Verify that first. 2. File a RTI with the PIO of SIC (or do the exercise yourself from the orders uploaded on the website) and get the total figures of complaints or second appeals. Compare that with the total number disposed. If it is abnormal, then make a noise in the media as well as file a WP in the High Court. Members also note that it has taken 6 years to get the second appeal for hearing.

    Political parties occupy prime land in Delhi Besides their central and state offices, political parties across the divide are occupying dozens of government-owned houses and properties in the national capital. In Lytens' Delhi both Congress and BJP occupy eight properties each in VP House, a stone's throw from Parliament House. All these houses in the heart of the capital come to these political parties at at throwaway prices. Despite getting them at cheap prices, the parties have failed to pay rents or clear dues. The Congress party alone has five bungalows which are being used as party offices. Besides the AICC, which operates from 26 Akbar Road, Congress has bungalows including 24 Ashok Road, 5 Raisina Road, 2 DDU Marg and CII/109 Chanakyapuri. From these bungalows, offices of the Youth Congress, Mahila Congress and the Delhi state unit operate. A reply to an RTI query filed by dna revealed that the Congress also has eight flats at VP House. When dna visited these flats, we found that these eight flats were occupied by the party workers, working either at party office or at the office of Sonia Gandhi in the parliament. "We have been living here for the past 14 years," said Lata Bariya, whose husband is a Congress worker, working as parliament staff of the UPA chairperson. Like the Congress, the BJP too has eight houses inside the VP House. While two houses have been occupied by the ABVP, which uses it as their office, the others are occupied by their party staff. Like the Congress, the BJP too has two bungalows. One being used as the national office and the other as BJP state office. When Rajiv Gandhi was the prime minister, the Congress party was given land, where today Jawahar Bhawan stands on Raisina Marg, to construct a party office. The construction of the building started while he was alive, but could not be completed in his life time. After his death, the party never moved to the building and continues to operate from 26 Akbar Road. The Jawahar Bhawan is now used by Rajiv Gandhi Foundation, the NGO run by the first family of the Congress.

    Looks as if it happens in USA too ! Government Could Hide Existence of Records under FOIA Rule Proposal A proposed rule to the Freedom of Information Act would allow federal agencies to tell people requesting certain law-enforcement or national security documents that records don’t exist – even when they do. Under current FOIA practice, the government may withhold information and issue what’s known as a Glomar denial that says it can neither confirm nor deny the existence of records. The new proposal – part of a lengthy rule revision by the Department of Justice – would direct government agencies to “respond to the request as if the excluded records did not exist." Open-government groups object. "We don’t believe the statute allows the government to lie to FOIA requesters,” said Mike German, senior policy counsel for the American Civil Liberties Union, which opposes the provision. The ACLU, along with Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington and OpenTheGovernment.org said the move would “dramatically undermine government integrity by allowing a law designed to provide public access to government to be twisted. The Glomar denial arose in the mid-1970s when a Los Angeles Times reporter requested information about the CIA’s Glomar Explorer, built to recover a sunken Soviet submarine and the CIA’s attempt to suppress stories about it. But the advocacy groups propose another response: You have requested “…records which, if they exist, would not be subject to the disclosure requirements of FOIA...” They prefer such language because a last resort is to sue to obtain the records, something people requesting information might not do if they assumed that no records existed. Open government groups also contend that the proposed rule could undermine judicial proceedings. In a recent case brought by the ACLU of Southern California, the FBI denied the existence of documents. But the court later discovered that the documents did exist. In an amended order, U.S. District Judge Cormac Carney wrote that the “Government cannot, under any circumstance, affirmatively mislead the Court.” DOJ’s draft FOIA rule was first published in March, but DOJ re-opened commentsubmissions in September at the request of open-government groups. The new comment period ended October 19. The DOJ did not immediately respond to a request for comment. We will update as soon as it does. http://www.propublica.org/article/government-could-hide-existence-of-records-under-foia-rule-proposal

    Just read this news item and wanted to share. Dr Siby Mathews is the Chief Information Commissioner of Kerala and likely to face disciplinary action for his past wrongdoings. Karunakaran's kin press for action in Isro spy case - Hindustan Times Karunakaran's kin press for action in Isro spy case Kerala High Court's recent order in the Isro espionage case has prompted family members of former chief minister and late Congress stalwart K Karunakaran to revive their demand for action against the three police officials who had conducted the probe into the scandal. Karunakaran's son K Muraleedharan, a Congress MLA, and daughter Padmaja Venugopal, also active in the party, have demanded action by the Oommen Chandy government based on the high court order earlier this week quashing the decision to drop action against the three retired police officers. Both Muraleedharan and Padmaja hold that a section of leaders within Congress had used the Isro spy case to oust Karunakaran from the chief ministership in the mid-1990s. They maintain that the decision of the Chandy government to spare the three officials, one of them a former ADGP and currently Information Commissioner, amounted to denial of justice to Karunakaran. "Of course, we will raise the issue within the party and with the government. We expect that there would be action based on the high court order. We will also take up the matter within the party," Muraleedharan, a former KPCC president, told PTI. On Oct. 20, while allowing the petition filed by former Isro scientist Nambi Narayanan, the high court had remitted the matter back to the government for reconsideration and the issuing of formal orders within three months. The order said that the Kerala government, which was 'enthusiastic' in withdrawing the case from CBI and handing it over to state police, had not taken a serious note of the lapses in the probe by Kerala police. Narayanan had approached the court in December 2012 seeking initiation of criminal and disciplinary action against former ADGP Siby Mathews and two retired Superintendents of Police -- Joshua and S Vijayan, who were held responsible by CBI for the illegal arrest of the senior Isro scientist who was accused of being involved in the espionage case. The scientist was later discharged. Meanwhile, the government is learnt to be examining the legal issues involved in the order to decide on the steps required to be taken. According to government sources, although no follow-up action has so far been finalised in the matter, legal experts would be consulted on how to proceed in the case since the three police officers involved are no longer in service.

    Narendra Modi government takes RTI to another level: All replies to be put online NEW DELHI: Taking the UPA government's showpiece initiative, The Right to Information (RTI) Act, to another level, the Narendra Modi government has now decided that from next month, all replies given under RTI by all ministries will be posted online so that any member of public can access them. This basically means that anyone can now access online the replies given by each Ministry to all RTI applications it receives, rather than just the person filing the RTI. The Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT) has issued an Official Memorandum to all Ministries on Tuesday to this affect. "An immediate action is requested so that the facility to upload the reply to RTI application and first appeal on the website of the respective ministry or department may be started w.e.f. 31st October, 2014," the DoPT has said. It has been specified that some caution be exercised in the matter if the information being given under RTI relates to privacy of an individual. "It may be noted that RTI applications and appeals received and their responses relating to personal information of an individual may not be disclosed, if they do not serve any public interest," the DoPT has said. This is being done as an earlier instruction issued by the DoPT in UPA's tenure, on April 15, 2013, had said that public authorities have an obligation to proactively disclose RTI applications and appeals received by them and their responses on their websites. "The Modi government is now implementing it. Under the RTI Act, there is a specific provision for suo-moto disclosure of information and we are moving towards the Digital India plan," a senior DoPT official told ET. The DoPT has already added a new feature on its website on a pilot basis which gives an option to its officials to upload the reply to RTI application and the first appeal on its website. "This feature is now being extended to other Ministries/departments of Government of India," DOPT has now specified, asking all ministries to contact the National Informatics Centre (NIC) for this purpose. The Prime Minister's Office had recently led by example by disclosing on its website the details on the number of employees in the PMO as well as the PM's personal staff and had also assets of all BJP Ministers.

    You will not get any such information like passport number from the passport office. The departure/arrival dates and details are available with the Bureau of Immigration (BoI) and NOT with the passport office. The BoI is part of the Intelligence Bureau (IB) and hence exempted from the purview of the RTI Act - except for information related to allegations of corruption and Human Rights violations.

    सूचना आयोग में भाई-भतीजावाद रोकने की मांग त्तर प्रदेश में मुख्यमंत्री के भाई के ससुर को सूचना आयुक्त नियुक्त करने का उदाहरण देते हुए सूचना आयोगों में सूचना आयुक्तों की नियुक्ति में भाई-भतीजावाद रोकने के लिए नियमों में संशोधन करने की याचिका सुप्रीम कोर्ट में दायर की गई है। लोक प्रहरी संगठन ने याचिका में कहा है कि सूचना आयुक्तों की नियुक्ति के नियमों में उम्मीदवारों के लिए सार्वजनिक जीवन में ‘ख्यातिलब्ध हस्ती’ की परिभाषा स्पष्ट करनी चाहिए, क्योंकि इस श्रेणी के तहत सरकारें अपनी मर्जी के व्यक्तियों को सूचना आयुक्त बना रही हैं, जो न तो स्वतंत्र हैं और न ही निष्पक्ष। इस प्रक्रिया में पारदिर्शता है, क्योंकि शार्ट लिस्ट किए गए लोगों के नाम सार्वजनिक नहीं किए जाते। लोकप्रहरी के संगठन के संयोजक तथा पूर्व आईएएस एसएन शुक्ला ने कहा कि याचिका में यूपी में हाल ही में आठ सूचना आयुक्त नियुक्त किए गए हैं, जिन्हें हाईकोर्ट में चुनौती दी जा चुकी है। उन्होंने कहा कि सुप्रीम कोर्ट इस बारे में कानून बना सकता है, क्योंकि सूचना के अधिकार कानून के तहत नियुक्तियों के बारे में नियम अब तक नहीं बनाए गए हैं। सुप्रीम कोर्ट कई फैसलों में तय कर चुका है कि जहां विधायिका ने कानून नहीं बनाया है, वहां नागरिकों के मौलिक अधिकारों को संरक्षित करने के लिए न्यायिक हस्तक्षेप से कानून बनाए जा सकते हैं। याचिका में शुक्ला ने कहा कि सार्वजनिक जीवन में ‘ख्यातिलब्ध हस्ती’ में सामाजिक कार्यो में पद्मभूषण या पद्मविभूषण, राष्ट्रीय या अंतरराष्ट्रीय पुरस्कार प्राप्त व्यक्तियों को रखना चाहिए। साथ ही उन्हें व्यापक ज्ञान और अनुभव भी होना चाहिए। यह योग्यता ऐसी हो जिसकी पुष्टि की जा सके। मुख्य न्यायाधीश जस्टिस एचएल दत्तू की पीठ इस याचिका पर 15 दिसंबर को सुनवाई करेगी। लोकप्रहरी की याचिका पर ही सुप्रीम कोर्ट गत वर्ष आपराधिक मामलों में दंडित जनप्रतिनिधियों को तुरंत प्रभाव से अयोग्य घोषित करने का फैसला दिया था। Read More: ????? ???? ??? ???-???????? ????? ?? ???? - Desh - LiveHindustan.com

    Can you please explain your doubt with more clarity ? Section 6 is all about filing a RTI application and the process to be followed. Section 3 simply states that all citizens have the "Right to Information".

    If you want to file a RTI application by email, then for public authorities under the Central Government, you can pay the Rs 10.00 application fee by providing e-IPO number. The system of e-IPO still DOES NOT work for public authorities under the State Government. Please read: http://www.rtiindia.org/forum/122248-tutorial-purchase-e-ipo-payment-rti-fee.html Since you will have to give the reference number of e-IPO in your RTI application, 30 days will be counted from the date of receipt of email.
