    Re: Action by Govt.for over flooding of RTI appeals/petitions


    If our H'ble Ministers, MPs and MLAs are not willing to hear us, let us concentrate on the Leaders of the Opposition / Opposition Party MPs and MLAs. Let us now start floating at least our e-mails daily. I have already started chasing those in Kerala State. Since elections in Karnataka is fast approaching let us concentrate on them. State governments are to be made provide adequate staff to the Commission under any circumstances.

    Re: Action by Govt.for over flooding of RTI appeals/petitions


    Patience is what we need ,we have just started RTI and tasted a measure of our legitimate right and immense change and confidence it has brought in. Sixty odd years of entrenched system requires cajoling and punishments to ply open and its pioneers like you who have taken it as a mission inspite of daily humiliations and frustrations.And beauty of it ,still winning to write success stories.
    Important thing is to operate within laid down and acceptable parameters.
    Review your efforts after 5 years and see the changes you helped to usher in.

    No doubt RTI Act 05 essence is very good.But unfortunate part of overflooding of petitions when there is inadquate machinery to handle.
    One members view is computerisation with a systematic programming/software installed with networking which can co-relate grivances of similar nature club them for a common decision.Fact a decision can be proceesed out of past nature of cases by computer itself for the help and perusal of the CIC/SIC.What is basically required is data entry operators hardware like scanners,OCR to read/scan RTI petitions and software generation and implementation.What is better part of it is one software may be implemented through the length and breadth of the country with networking.The question is if the will is!

    Let us see if it catches eyes of SIC/CIC and implementing machinery

    If there is Will, there is a Way !

    I will just give two examples of what the Government itself can achieve, if it wants do do something:

    1. The STD/ISD booth revolution - I think sometime in the late Eighties.
    Before that, we had to wait 5 to 6 hours even for calling Pune from Mumbai.
    And then the operator would restrict you to 3 minutes.
    All this was much before privatisation of telecom.

    2. Railway reservation system.
    I am sure that number of RTI applications filed in India is much less than the bookings
    made on the CRIS railway reservation system.
    I do not know if the number of trains on that system are less or more than the number
    of PA's in India.
    But if rail reservations (with a plethora of classes, discounts, seasonal fares,
    warrants, etc) can be computerised, why not the RTI application and tracking process ?

    Re: Action by Govt.for over flooding of RTI appeals/petitions


    As for as RTI Act is concerned things are entiely diffferent.This Act as such does not suit our governmentS, some of the politicians , bureaucracy in general. Without their consent no improvements or even its implementation is not possible. If the whole lot of them unitely oppose how can anything could be done ? The only weapon WE THE POEPLE OF INDIA have is our adult franchise. If the the media come to our rescue we can encash it at the time of election. I don't think anything more is possible unless we realise this power of us and utilise it properly during elections To start with we can take Karnataka election as a test case. In every forum present to each political parties and each and every candidate as to what are they going to do to implement of the RTI Act ? Dictate terms. Of course this would be possible only if the media is kind enough to side with WE THE PEOPLE OF INDIA.

    It is only solution to punish such officer or department or company to whom so many complaint/appeal filled in CIC/Courts etc. A driver may be removed from service in the condition of three accident made by such driver like it there should be a system whenever there is so many complaints against anyone he must be punished for same. In our country people facing cases 20 or more are living without tension. Section 110 of IPC is also prevailingly not using by system. Present atmosphere not supported to law.

    Both the revolutionary changes(as we term them today), as mentioned in post 13 above ,have taken well over a decade to reach this stage and both were seemingly harmless as for as entrenched bureaucracy was concerned .And in both cases impetus was provided from inside the govt (Sam Pitrodas) and not by We The People, in RTI case it is We the People leading and winning inspite of deliberate and consistence resistance from powers within. There is a whole lot of differance.
