Thread: Don’t accept RTI petitions, SIC tells Palakkad RDO

  1. Re: Don’t accept RTI petitions, SIC tells Palakkad RDO


    The observation of boarders are quite right that SIC has no right to stop any citizen from using his democratic rights unless such clause exist in the Act itself. In fact this attempt would be severe blow to the right to information campaign if it goes unchecked. Anyway the PA can use Section 7 if it takes away a substantial amount of fiscal resources...
    Keep it up Maj Ravindran.......
    In fact take this one step further...File a criminal case against SIC for violating the Act.

    sagginyou,

    Why waste time , effort and money in a criminal case which will just prolong matters.

    File a RTI Application with the SIC and ask then to give you the reasons under Sec 4(1)(d) for this "administrative or quasi-judicial" decision since he is a "affected party".

    Please have a heart Mr.Kaira. By now you may be well aware of the state of affairs with Kerala State Information Commission. The problem with him is he has no scruples. He just does not understand RTI Act especially Section 4(1)(d). I fully agree with you that filing a criminal case will be a waste of time and money.

    Putting the media on the trail will be more effective than getting into litigation.
    Maj Ravindran's seems to have been reported in the press but has there been any media follow up?
    The media normally do not take too much trouble with background research. We will have to do it for them in a sustained manner, punching holes in the SIC's arguments.
    Perhaps it is time to give a detailed, researched analysis regarding this to all the media to take issue & follow through.

    What I had observed is that the media in general is not interested much in RTI Act. Their interest often confined to reporting the utterances of VIPs on RTI. Mostly such reports were found to be disinformation like 'misuse of RTI Act' etc. RTI is an Act not welcomed bya few bureaucrates and some of the politicians. The media just cannot afford to invite their wrath. Even the most popular media just cannot afford to survive without the cooperation of bureaucrates. Outcome ? ke-zara-zara.

    I think, State Information Commission has become a "Rehablitation Centre" of retired Beurocrates, and due to this such type of order is comming in light. This is one face of our Democracy. Hon'ble Supreme Court has feel this situation and correctly ruled in CWP 2010 / 2012 (Namit Sharma Vs Union of India) decided on 13-9-2012.

    Another face is - Maximum misuser / user of law by Police, or any other authority is getting award for his best performance.

    Can any authority deny fundamental rights guaranteed in Constitution
    Even IC in CIC has made an observation in a CIC decision to that effect and stating that PIO of IT has refused to furnish information.
    The order challenges the validity of constitutional rights guaranteed to citizens.
