    Re: India less Corruption now


    As per my views so many persons in this forum complaining for unsatifactory working of CIC. We have to fix the way how we may improve the work of CIC. Citizens like ours may not be ideal on RTI other wise the usefull act provided to citizens will be withdrawn or public will feel harrashed.

    There are different forums and netizens fighting tooth and nail against CIC. The aim of this forum spelt out being entirely different, I feel that it is only appropriate for us to continue to function within the frame work of this forum forgetting occasional spill over of emotions.

    I think the Commissions have to improve their working, only then the officers will have the fear from the apex bodies under the Act. For this, first of all the commissions are required to be forced to do their duties of imposing penalties. This can be done either by approaching High Courts against the decisions of the Commissions or making large number of applications to the Governors to recommend inquiry agaist the particular information commissionor for his incapacity. We can also take help of media in putting pressure of the commissions to do their duties.

    You are right, the CIC, Ic's should impose penalties on the erring officials, and if they don't do it because beaurucratic affinity comes in the way, then they have to be forced to do it, and penalty should be an integral part of the decisions. Once penalties are imposed, the officials will be forced to give informations faster, and that will reduce the workload of the CIC, and SIc's, and they can then do other productive works. That will have a positive impact on reducing corruption too, which is now an accepted fact in all branches of Indian Govt. right from top to bottom.

    All the high courts of country are all ready over burdened with cases,


    The mind set of the public authority has formed over a period of more than 50 years. It will take some time to reach to the state of proactive disclosure.

    We cannot stop making efforts only because High Courts are overburdened. Although, people know that the courts are over-burdened, but they do not stop approaching the courts only due to this. I would also like to add here that the High Court can be approached under Article 226 only in case of RTI cases and the courts decides the matters under Article 226 at faster speed.

    Mr. Vashishthvivek,
    The judiciary is not overburdened but it only seems overburdened due to efforts of judiciary to propagate it. Only 25 percent cases needs decisions and 75 percent cases only available in high court records. [Moderated]

    Dear sngupta,
    Then you will agree that all the Information Commissions are required to be forced to do their duties of imposing penalties and this can be done by approaching High Courts against the decisions of the Commissions. Atleast the High Courts will get some genuine work to do.
