Does anyone know where the Adarsh society inquiry report is?
An application was filed with the public information officer of Chief Minister’s Office of Maharashtra under the Right to Information (RTI) Act seeking to get a copy of the Adarsh cooperative society inquiry report.
The chief minister’s office forwarded the application to the Department of Urban Development. However, the department didn’t provide the information and rather held the application for 30 days after which it transferred the query to the General Administration Department.
The applicant has now filed a complaint with the State Information Commission contending that the CMO didn’t have a clue about the whereabouts of the report and it randomly transferred the application to the urban development department. He also mentioned that the urban development department should have forwarded the application within five days of its receipt if it didn’t possess the information. Instead the department held on to the application for 30 days without any reasonable cause. The appellant has expressed concerns that the inquiry report might have gone missing and that even GAD would not come up with a proper reply.
