Thread: I submitted one RTI application but no response from Pio

  1. I submitted one RTI application but no response from Pio


    It's time after second appeal. pl. advice
    I submitted one RTI application on 10/05/07, but no response from PIO & A.A even after 1<SUP>st</SUP> appeal. Then after 2<SUP>nd</SUP> appeal SIC directed PIO to explain the matter within 15 days on 13<SUP>th</SUP> Sept, 2007. But till date nothing received from any body. What should be the procedure thereafter or how it should be drafted for submission to the SIC --- Abhijeet

    Dear Shri Abhijeet,
    The users of RTI are being given secondary treatment every where and there is no organisation to help against victimization. I am trying to make an association of RTI voluteers so that no one can dare to treat RTI users as secondary person. In some cases joint efforts are needed to implement the RTI. Actually till to day there is no body who is looking after the proper implementation of RTI. The position of indian judiciary is very poor and it is only reason we are help less every where.

    I had faced the same situation. I had filed a Complaint under Section 18(1) to SIC. Nothing happened subsequently; but the cituation of your SIC may not be as bad as that in Kerala. I suggest you to file a complaint before your SIC under Section 18(1). It will be better if you pray for imposition of the penalties under Section 20 in addition to other relevent prayers. You may endorce its copies to PIO and AA also which might compel them to act.

    Dear Shri colunkurup,
    As per my views after thorough study of RTI 2005 the CIC/SIC may award penalty only when the second appeal under section 19 of RTI act 2005.
    It is suggested to every one please submit first appeal to appeallate authority and then file the second appeal to CIC/SIC.

    After 3 years' experience of RTI activities,I am convinced that most of our ( if not all) POIs and FAAs don't bother at all to furnish proper information; they really think that this 'FALTU' RTI act is really a burden to them . And when PIO friendly SIC 'acts' properly(!), what is the necessity of providing any information at all? One of our friends recently received one letter from the concerned SPIO , who requested the applicant to submit the copy of one letter, which the applicant asked to provide and obviously that letter was issued from the concerned Public Authority. How one SPIO could write such type of letter with such an absurd request ?

    If applicant himself is not active and knowledgeable enough to proceed with the various stages of the RTI process, he cannot expect the desired results from the PIO/FAA/CIC/SIC.

    If you do not use the appealing mechanism properly and argue your case properly, you are about to face such problems. You cannot blame the RTI Act for your own failures and your half will to go by it. RTI has unearthed the major revelations and continue to do so.

    You cannot pierce a nail in the wall from its Head Side how much harder you hammer it. You have to point the Pointer side of the nail on the wall to have it fixed on the wall.

    Similar is the case with the RTI. Use it properly and knowledgeably and see for the results for your self.

    I had submitted my experince with 'truth' of RTI in some of my previous posts. I do admit that I don't have any that much knowledgeable RTI activist friendshere to act properly . But when the united effortof all those PIO-FAA and above all the SIC 'for the corrupt' only then how to proceed with ? I read many success stories in this forum , but in our case, revelation is that one PA was asked by the Govt. Secretary to take ' immediate'/ urgent action against certain corrupt persons ( 22 such instances) but even after 3-4 years of period of time no action was taken. Some persons advised to go to the media - but they are not 'interested with this type of 'stories' now a days. Though few years back they did help in many ways. Not now. Judiciary ? At least we have experience of two decades of legal activities in HC & SC. Most of the petitioners have died already , but the directives of HC & SC were nicely violated by the united stronger force of corrupts. In short I should mention here that only for implementation of one 'directive ' of HC We had to go to the HC & SC for atleast 10 times . But that directive is yet to be implemented by the concerned PA. I do admit , Sir, we are 'not active and knowledgeable enough to proceed with !

    If there are High Court Directives, why don't you file contempt proceedings against PA? It is as simple as that.
