Thread: RTI Act being misused, CIC directs probe

  1. Re: RTI Act being misused, CIC directs probe


    Definitely a service. As very rightly pointed out by Col Kurup, "the cry of misuse of RTI Act whoever makes it is a farce."

    Re: RTI Act being misused, CIC directs probe


    With the "MEDIA" assuming the role of godfather of bureaucrates as regards RTI Act, allegation of miuse of RTI Act is gaining momentum. Firstly I still maintain that it is farce. Secondly, let us consider that what stop a ciyzen from misusing the RTI Act ? Yes it is misused. So what. Will any PIO or AA or SIC or CIC have the confidence to deny the information on a plea that it is miused ?

    Let us look at Section 6(2) of the Act .-An applicant making request for information shall not be required to give any reason for requesting the information .Hence nothing stops an applicant from requesting for information purely FOR MISUSING. The act imply that the information could be asked for any reasons and no reason is there to be given.

    All laws are misused. Dowery, domestic violence, CPC, Cr PC and even govt officials and police are misusing laws for decades. Even delay in judiciary is being misused by many. No one is crying. It is only so called misuse of RTI that there is hue and cry. What a double standard. Any change for good is painful.
    It takes each of us to make difference for all of us.

    what about custodian of information (public authorities) filing false affidavits in courts to deny justice to thousands of applicants. We should not forget the biggest litigant today is the Govt. using poublic money and time to deny justice. RTI ACt-2005 provides just a small oportunitiy to the applicants to obtain certified documents/records which otherwise remain out of reach.

    I have been asking the same question to everyone who associate 'misuse with RTI'. No answer. My reply to them was " SO WHAT ?"

    Obviously the govt officials 'misused' the gullibility of the media, who in turn are just looking for 'hot news' again to out smart the next reporter or in the case of the media, the competeing media.
    To hell with all responsibility of reporting seems to be the medias' attitude. How often do they follow up 'sensational' headlines of yesterday?
    So to make use or misuse of the media one has to give sensational news - never mind the accuracy.

    An human being having a body. Who made this? There is so many conventions on the birth of human being. The economy which was develped by human being himself for proper utilisation of natural resources can not be saved on the individual privacy. Every human being is bounded to provide the information of all economic activity. It is not a question that any information can be misused.

    Use or misuse is no subject for consideration to provide informations.
