Thread: playing with RTI

  1. Re: playing with RTI

    Col Kurup, things are not that simple as you have made it out. Though it greatly varies from office to office. And mainly it depends on the person on the spot.

    Please,I suggest not to address by individual names except for thanking or joking or appreciating.
    As for things being not that simple, it is a matter of perception.
    Generally,not always,matters can be solved amicably in majority of cases and offices,provided rigidity and ego are kept aside. Open mind is a great settler and sure medicine for any organisational success.

    This is in response to col kurup's post(#16) above.

    Col. Are you suggesting that seeking information under RTI is akin to confrontation with the establishment?

    Just by seeking information in a written format is no way construed to confronting the Establishment.

    But majority of bureaucracy thinks in that way. Once you start citing/using RTI, even a friendly officer becomes agitated, aggressive, uncommunicative and hostile.

    And if that is the case then so it be. We should confront/play them with our Ten Rupee Missiles.

    Col.Sir, In the state govt. office,in establishment section, it very difficult to verify ones own data. Hence after a normal request, if an employee could not get it , he should resort to the present Act.

Basically so long as the man-management system is satisfactory there should not be any reason for a government servant to resort to RTI though they are fully entitled as per the Act. But when one resort to RTI channel straight a way he is entering into confrontation with his superiors making the lives of both miserable. Ultimately the strongest of the lot wins causing problem to the other and his family.
    IT is a matter of fact that in Govt office the human resource and management is very poor. Govt is all going for liberalization but management within has not changed with the same pace. It appears some serious thought needs to be given to ensure that the services are professionally managed.

    I will give one simple instance in Central Govt Services for all those provident fund is maintain by Govt, with every transfer one has to get a new account no at new place and then ensure that all balances are properly accounted.
    There is an urgent need to improve management within as well
