Re: CIC struggles to clear huge backlog of cases
I seems that I spoke too early .
As per my phone call with Mr Karira and as per his suggestion in one of the posts ( I do not how to find it in this huge ocean, nevertheless) , I had been to CIC Office in Old JNU Campus ( for a Hearing actually ) . But since I arrived 30 minutes before the Hearing at 10.00 AM leaving home at 8.00 AM to avoid the huge traffic that strats building up from 8.15 AM, I was able to get there in good time .
I used the interim period to good advantage sipping 2 cups of hot coffee arranged imaginatively by IC(SG) for the visitors .
And then Room 412
HORROR OF HORRORS !!
The main server at the August Krant Bhawan is reported to be down/behaving erratically since last few days, the woes compounded by frequent black outs .
I was told that the dak bags had not been opened for last 3 days , i.,e, since Monday 13April and the desks of the staff was full of unopened enevelopes and appeals/communications/yet to be read and processed . I saw three such bags for myself, and I was told that if I waited for another 3 hours or so, I will find yet another bag arriving .
CHAOS UNLIMITED .
The building is itself in a bad shape , being used earlier as students hostel . The plaster is peeling out at several places, and it has brown cello tape on it !!! And please dont use the toilet facilities for the visitors , the door wont close, and you would find any towel or soap inside .
PERHAPS the office will shift to Club Building nearby where IC(AD) sits, where I found woodwork going on at a frantic pace . But I am told that the problem of server /web site updates/ power outages will continue for long .
Can anyone suggest what ought to be done to rectify the situation. I feel thar RTIIndia
members should fill up CIC (WH) box with complaints . I have done enough already .
STAND UP AND FIGHT FOR YOUR RIGHTS .
