UNIVERSITY LECTURER RECEIVES PAYMENTS DUE USING RTI ACT
Mrs. Rucha Manju Phondge is a University lecturer at Symbiosis College, Pune. Her services at the college were first engaged on a part time basis up to 1998. Around the year 2000, she was converted to a permanent lecturer & her pay scale was increased. However, she did not begin to receive the increase in pay until after 4 years of being made permanent. Rucha decided to take this matter up with concerned departments & approached the Directorate of Education with a plea that arrears from her new pay scale be released. However she was unable to get the concerned officers to take any action. Then her father-in-law advised her to use Right to Information. Rucha filed an application & within a month she received a cheque of Rs.3 Lakh.
