    Re: councillor spending funds only in particular area.


    Dinesh,

    Do Municipal Councilors also get funds ? I did not know that ! Thanks for pointing out.

    This can be addressed to the PIO of the MCD. Details of various PIO's are available at:

    http://www.mcdonline.gov.in/mcd/adds...nfOfficers.doc

    In the case of MP's and MPLAD funds, the full data is available on the Lok Sabha/Rajya Sabha website and also with the Planning Officer in the District Collectors office, which is the planning authority for MPLAD funds.

    There must be something similar in the MCD. Just check the following link:

    http://www.mcdonline.gov.in/mcd/adds/ritetoinfo.html

    The type of information you can ask for (for last 2 or 3 years , if you wish):

    What are the different areas represented by the councilor ?
    1. Total amount allocated to the Councilor for use in his area
    2. List of projects suggested by the councilor, details of projects, area/location details, etc...
    3. Cost estimate of each project, amount allocated from councilors funds, Total amount actually spent, Amount actually spent from the councilors funds
    4. Name, address, telephone numbers, etc. of the approving authority for these projects ?
    5. Whether under Section 4(1)(c) of the RTI Act, any public consultation was carried out before sanctioning the above projects.
    6. Total amount allocated to the councilor for each year, total amount spent, total amount lapsed

    You can add many more along the above lines and also delete any, if not applicable to your case.

    Dinesh,

    That is a very good application.
    Just one suggestion. You are asking for 2007-08 and 2008-09 in item 1 and 2.
    But then in Item 3, you are asking for projects from 01 Jan 2008 till date.

    Instead of that ask for year wise details for 2007-08 and 2008-09.

    Also please check when were the last MCD elections held ? If they were held in 2006 or before that, then better to ask information for 2006-07 and 2007-08 rather than 2008-09 because the current financial year has just started and you will only get partial information which will be of no use.

  5. Re: councillor spending funds only in particular area.


    Thanks for your support Karira.

    Though the last MCD elections were held in April 2007, I already have records of his projects till 31 Dec 2007.

    During this (Apr to Dec) he has spent Rupees 25 lakhs from his fund, out of which 23 lakhs were spend on a single colony in which he himself resides.

    Suptendu,

    This is only a discussion portal on the RTI Act 2005.
    Members here cannot provide you the the information you are seeking but only help you in using the RTI Act correctly and effectively to get the information you want.

    Why don't you file a RTI application ?

    Please read this whole thread.
