Dear RTI friends, Recenlty I and my friend visited the Head Office of the Bank at Bangalore for submiision of RTI application. the reply we got from the Deemed CPIO (cpio was on leave) is very strange as he inisited that RTI application needs to be submitted within the cash hours of the Bank and asked us to deposit the CASH in the nearby Branch and then to come to office . He refused to take the application on the same day by saying that Head office of the Bank has no arrangement of receipt of cash towards the RTI applications and rejected the application sinch the working hours of the Branch where cash needs to be deposited is over. we had visited the Head office of the Bank around 4 pm yet due to the adamant attitude of the Officals we couldnot submit the application. they further refused to give the same in writing when insited. annoyed by the above I submiited a detailed comaplint to the DGM who is also the Appellate Autoirty(AA) in the Bank. After some days, the AA replied to us that the actions of the CPIO is in accordance with the Bank Rules of receipt of Cash though I specifically pointed out in my complaint that Receipt of RTI applications shoud be arranged over a Single Counter and referred the CIC ruleing in this connections. now can I approach the CIC or escalate the matteer to the Managing Director of the Bank whose duty is to implement the RTI Act in all its spirits? kindly advise and offer your suggestions.
