    Re: RTI Act being misused, CIC directs probe


    The appellant also gives a declaration that he is not seeking the information for the purpose which is detrimental to the interest of the nation or otherwise. Less than one percent of Indians have started using RTI and if they are scared, what will happen to this law. In fact I am of the view that severe strict action is required against PIOs who provide misleading, incomplete, belated and distorted information.

    Re: RTI Act being misused, CIC directs probe


    Many times it is coming to my notice, that there is misuse of RTI. Right to information is a fundamental Right. Can any one clarify "where there is no misuse of powers? Is a bureaucrat, politician or press is not misusing the power conferred to them." The hue and cry of misuse of RTI Act is made by such persons only who are affected and are unable misuse there powers as they were doing before enactment of this act. If at all there is misuse, whts the problem? There is no problems to common citizen. IN MY OPINION THOSE WHO ARE MAKING HUE AND CRY OF MISUSE OF RTI SHOULD STOP IT. AT LEAST IN THIS FORUM.

    I agree with HK Dubey. Other fundamental rights are being misused, such as freedom of speech whish spreads hatred in the society but no one raises his voice against it. In fact RTI is in the interest of those people who do not know how to use it.

    RTI Act is misused by Info Comissioners /public authorities & Political leaders. They unwarrantedly ask the rti applicants to tell reasons of asking the informations; they appoint their beloved bureucrates in cic/ sic; theydeny the info on one pretext or other ; they are not respecting the written mandates of rti act 05 ; they are amending or deleting the rti (mgt) rules as & when wished as per their convenience; they hate to penalize the erring PIOs ; they hate to take disciplinary action on guilty officers; they provide the info after 20--36 months ; they ask Rs. 2 lakhs for a small info; & many more such misuses. Govt recruited bureucrates in info commissions ; who are found in 99 % cases to be misusing their positions to harrass the citizens. One & the strong example of misuse is that the CIC unwarrantedly amended the cic(mgt) rules 2007 to delete the clause of errors-removal in decision . Thus CIC now onwards shall not be responsible for its deficient ; defective; mindless decisions. If rti appellants are aggrieved on its decisions; they are free to spend Rs 1 lakh to get their cases Reviwed in High/ Supreme Court.

    Rightly pointed out The act is Misused by the persons who should interpret it properly. There improper interpretation causing problems to the citizens and they have to appeal various authority which is time consuming as well as they have to waste money. Those PIO/FAA who are interpreting it wrongly to save there colleagues should be punished heavily with monetary fine and disciplinary action as they are playing with the fundamental right of a citizen.

    Re: RTI Act being misused, CIC directs probe


    I have a case of misuse. A dismissed employee is again and again approaching through RTI seeking information on all disciplinary cases right from the inception of the company and tries to equate his case with others to gain reentry . It is a well settled law that each disciplinary case is unique and no comparison be made , Despite this he puts atleast 50 questions each time in different forms. Reply was given to him that questions have already been answered. Does RTI act need be amended to curb such practices.

    interesting episode (i was in a mood for gossip today).

    frankly, i'm not very well conversant with the ethics of this website but normally on such responsible websites, one doesn't discuss another's misdeeds quoting names in such graphic detail. the logic is simply that the other person doesn't have a chance to defend himself while his name gets maligned, rightly or wrongly.

    why blame the "caliber of young journalist"? it appears he is not the only one quoting his personal experience.
