Somesh Tiwari, An officer of IRS (C&CE) antagonized a lot of senior officers because of his Honest Work. A scheme to neutralize him was cooked up and on flimsy grounds of inquiry he was transfered out. He fought his way with the help of RTI and won the fight.
One should take lessons from his courage and sticking to his beliefs at the times of ones odd.
Yes,things are encouraging.I have been issued two charge sheets during February and May 2008 as I have been writing RTI applications to my employer (an insurance company)since June 2007.I have got enough information to challenge their arbitrary decision to suspend me and I have learned the Rules of domestic enquiry overlooked by them. I think because of the RTI Act I have been able to survive and fight back,although I am aware I would have to struggle for years,but those who have self respect,have to make sacrifices.
