An application was filed under the RTI Act by me
Ref: NGO demands dismissal of Information Commissioners of Odisha
I filed RTI with http://rtiodisha.gov.in/ on dated the 30/Jul/2013 with the reference no 18-300713-17629. Today is 2/Aug/2013, Until today received no information if the application is successful or not by the PIO. It is clear from the website that the relevant PIO will decide our RTI app is acceptable or not and we need to pay fees if it is acceptable.
In other word, they are not bound to answer the application, as we have not paid the fees. The http://rtiodisha.gov.in/ should accept the fees during the application process, so that it will be duty bound to answer the application. Looks like http://rtiodisha.gov.in/ is just eyes wash of the state govt to show that Orissa taken action to implement RTI which is not in reality. I had given call yesterday to the Deputy Chief Monitoring Officer) by mobile, answered that he is in meeting. Today I called him around 11:40 am , answered he is driving. Looks like he is marketing some products. Office Phone: +91-674-2391356 no one attending call during working hours. The bell only keeps on ringing.
So they are getting good salary and good life and we are paying in terms of tax for their life, but for nothing. We are not benefited out of it, we are harassed, cheated in the name of RTI.
Orissa governance is completely disconnected and very far from other part of the country and world. People in Orissa kept in the dark, Orissa became dark hole (where nothing is visible in naked eyes)
