    RTI activist seeks action against PMC officials


    RTI activist seeks action against PMC officials

    Pune, November 28 Alleging that the the Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC) officers have failed to abide by the order of information commissioner to penalise two of its officers for delaying the information sought, the applicant has demanded strict action against the officers for the contempt of commission order.

    “The appeal authority in PMC have failed to execute the order of information commissioner and instead demanded Rs 300 fee for furnishing the photo copy of the information sought,” RTI applicant Shivdas Salunkhe said. He has urged the information commissioner Vijay Kuwalekar to initiate strict action against the officers concerned for contempt of commission by not executing the order.

    Salunkhe had filed a RTI application on March 8, 2006 urging the PMC to furnish him the map of a building in Erandwane along with the completion certificate. With no information provided within the stipulated 30 days, the applicant filed an appeal authority city engineer Prashant Waghmare. However, the applicant filed second appeal with the information commissioner after not receiving satisfactory reply.

    After conducting a public hearing, information commissioner Vijay Kuwalekar on July 7, 2007 penalised Rs 5,500 each to two PMC officers Shantaram Thorat and Suresh Kadu for not furnishing the information sought by the applicant in time.

    The information commissioner also directed the city engineer to deduct the penalty amount from the July salary of the two officers and deposit it to the commission while directing the information officer to furnish the information to applicant free of cost by July 20. It also urged the city engineer to execute the order and submit the report by August 5.

    So, now, applicants have to follow up not only after their application, their First Appeal, their Second Appeal, imposition of penalty, BUT also need to file RTI Application to see if the penalty was really recovered.
    One RTI Application leads to another......
