Govt official taking cover of security to deny info
<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p>
In a survey conducted by CHRI etc it was congregated that several RTI application in the Terror, Insurgency, and Naxal prone states are regularly delayed and often denied by the Government official under the swathe of Secret and Secured Information tag.
No doubt there are definition under RTI act about the informations those cannot be revealed due to Security etc raison d'être , but still the lack of awareness @ knowledge of the general public about such clauses and the initial dissuasion and discouragement by the Govt official is sufficient for him/her to withdraw any of his/her RTI application.
So besides imparting knowledge to such Laymen what are the penalties for such piercing and shroud officials who alibi terrorism, insurgency and naxalism etc to loiter revealing those information to the general public which are not part of any security intimidation.
….The Right Informed
