    bjsarawgi,

    There are many many decisions of the CIC and some SIC's, that after the contract is over (or the job is over) the contract conditions, etc should be in the public domain.
    Lets see what the court says.
    Clear implication is that the Government is trying to hide something.
    They will not only file the LPA (as you indicated) but will also appeal in front of the full bench. Mind you, all the money for these court cases comes from the taxpayers.

    i think this is the first case where the government has knocked the doors of the judiciary. in my opinion as per the today's progress in the case the court should give order in the favour of RTI and ask the government to give the information.

    the hon"ble high court dismissed the lpa of the urban development department. the detail order sheet will be given in two three days. the urban develop department submitted to the court that these information comes under claus 8(1)(d).

    this information has revealed the forgery by the consultant resulting they got order for 20 crores in conivence with state government officials

    Friend

    I think it is the last Kurukskhetra war between Citizen empowered with RTI ACT and the corrupt Govt Officials who now stand exposed due to RTI ACT.

    Division bench , by all probability, will not reverse single bench verdict.

    We , the RTI Activists , now should make our consolidated move to ensure that appeal from Central / State Information commission should lie only before Supreme court of India.This will bind the corrupt officials with the necessary restrain to make an applicant under RTI ACT to run in the corridors of courts for years !

    Cheers

    Your suggestion is indeed very good. I would just like to add, Supreme Court for "central issues" and High Courts for "state issues".

    But, Debashish, please do not be mistaken. This is not the last Kurushetra war. It is only the First Battle of Panipat. And, mind you, in this case, the matter will not end with the Third Battle. Citizens of this country will have to go on and on and on and on to change our "chalta hai attitude" and the much maligned "endemic system".

    What is needed, is more and more citizens like you and me, taking the RTI route and at the same time training, educating and encouraging others also to use the RTI Act. We might not be a Anna Hazare or Kejriwal or Sailesh Gandhi, but if we can just contribute our knowledge, our experience and spare some of our time, it will help in a small way to improve this so called "system".
