Thread: I happen to be a former civil servant who resigned from the IAS after 14 years of service

  1. Re: I happen to be a former civil servant who resigned from the IAS after 14 years of service


    I must confess, the whole incident and the life cycle of yours had filled me with grief and a long distant dream of 'within-system' transformation. Your narration well qualifies for the blog, kindly create one and post this one there.

    Im RTI there is Right to Information Act, 2005 applicable for Centeral Government and there are other similar Acts of various acts. In your case it will be Right to Information, Haryana.

    They do charge Rs 50 as fee.

    Yes, For RTI, 2005 the Central Govt. has prescribed these modes for payment of fee.

    As per Haryana RTI Act, an applicant can deposit the fee in cash. And he can deposit the fee with the CPIO,
    The fee shall be deposited with the State Public Information Officer/
    State Assistant Public Information Officer either in cash against proper receipt or by treasury challan.

    You can deposit the fee with the CPIO.

    We have plans to compile such information here at RTI India.

    As a beginner in RTI matters I would appreciate being enlightened on the following issues:

    [b][1] the Act seems to provide for a basic fee of Rs10.Is that right? If so, how is it that the office of the Administrator , HUDA Gurgaon charges Rs 50?

    [2] The modes of payment of fees seem to include [1] cash [2] DD [ 3] Pay Order [4] Postal Order . Is that right?

    Dear frnd,
    Intially I shall welcome you to this Forum. It is the need of hour that all misfit in this system join in a forum to prove that misfits are mostfit and fits are unfit to this system.
    There are many wrongs: I am stuggling about late running of trains in our Division. I am moving in circles and many times I find I am at the starting point again and again but I shall reach the goal. The circle may be vicious but I will find the end in the circle too. I hope you too will find this forum will be helpful for you too.

    I have gone through. You have suffered a lot but Suffering always pays. I appreciate your will power. we are surely lucky to get you in the forum. Still I hope misfits will prove they are most fit. I am of the opinion that two things never dies. 1. Truth which unfolds itself with time. 2. Soul it is real immortal. Truth will win at last.

  8. Re: I happen to be a former civil servant who resigned from the IAS after 14 years of service


    Dear Mr.Dubey,

    Many thanks for welcoming me to the RTI community. I look forward to an interesting and hopefully productive time.

    Good luck to you in your quest into the 'late-running trains' syndrome.

    Best regards,

    Rajat Narain
