CIC- DMC should set up committee to monitor implementation of the cleaning schedule
The appellant filed an application under the Right to Information (RTI) Act with the South Delhi Municipal Corporation (DMC) seeking information in respect of the attendance schedule of Safai karamcharis of the South DMC. The Public Information Officer (PIO) did not provide any information even after the directions of the First Appellate Authority (FAA).
View of CIC
The Central Information Commission (CIC) observed that the matter raised by the appellant has larger public interest which pertains to maintenance of cleanliness and hygiene in the residential area within the Najafgarh Zone. The CIC directed the PIO to provide the complete Safai schedule along with the name of the Safai Karamchari in respect of the said area for every month / fortnight for the past six months; the copy of attendance register; time logged in by the Safai Karamcharis for the past three months and complete list of Safai Karamcharis as maintained by the public authority. The Commission recommended the Deputy Commissioner of South DMC to examine the possibility of setting up citizens committee of 3/4 members to monitor the implementation of the cleaning schedule and report the same to the control room of the South DMC in case some lacunae are observed.
