After a great deal of effort, we could get hold of the policy document that was being claimed as non-existent. What are the options available to us for dealing with the denial of information on false pretexts?
Also the answer given to the following queries:
Ans: Since the documents pertaining to the information sought in these paras are not available hence no information can be furnished on these matters.
- Who is responsible for safety of CSIR employees at the workplace? Is it not the responsibility of CSIR and its institutions to provide a safe working place to employees? What are the laws of Indian Union applicable to CSIR and its institutions that prescribe the health and safety of its employees?
- In case of work related injury or death at workplace of an employee, what is the responsibility of CSIR and its institutions towards the employee and his/her family? Are the employees eligible for any compensation for disablement or death caused at the workplace? If yes, how is the quantum of compensation arrived at?
- Provide a list of accidents, quantified loss of property, injuries and deaths that took place, at each of the CSIR institutions for the last 20 years year wise.
Every question can be denied answer under such a pretext. So how to get information under RTI if all questions could be denied answers in this manner. Members advice requested.
