    Is it possible to check quality of construction by using RTI


    Hi every body,

    A concrete road was built in my village about 7-8 yrs ago.The road was ok for cuouple of years ,now it is completely filled up with potholes.
    Is it possible to test the quality of construction now?
    I undestand there is a provision of sample collection in the RTI.

    How do you propose to collect the sample in respect of a road that was laid about 8 years back? However you can ask for a copy of the quality report and the name of the official who has approved it. The discussions in the following thread will give you some guidance:
    Can I ask for samples of building contract under RTI?

    Prabhakar,

    The following thread contains an article about "Youth Task Force"
    which is doing similar work regarding quality of roads in Delhi.

    http://www.rtiindia.org/forum/rti-ne...ation-act.html

    The home page of YTF is:

    Youth Task Force HomePage

    I am sure they can help you in drafting the application as well as guide you in the testing/inspection methodology. It will be worthwhile to contact them also, get help and their views.

    I am having similar query there is my bldg which is constructed some 1 year back I drafted an application stating "I want to inspect the stilt parking area, fire refugee area and basement of the Bldg, As per Section 2(j)(i)"

    But unfortunately Municipal Corporation refused to give information stating that the information does not falls under purview of RTI.

    I have made appeal against the same, but still it is pending.

    Kushal,

    I tried submitting the link for the YTF home page but there is no "add link" button anywhere on the links page. Maybe that add link privilege is only with the moderator....need to change the settings probably.
    Can you do the needful ?
