RTI Foundation of India is doing very good job to update the public
Ref: CIC: By practice ‘missing file’ cannot be read into as exception in addition to exceptions prescribed by RTI Act; It amounts to breach of Public Records Act, 1993 and is punishable with imprisonment up to a term of five years or with fine or both
Sir, RTI foundation of India is doing very good job to update the public with regard their rights through RTI Act, which is the need of the day. Sir, but it has been noticed that due to lack of knowledge about asking the information, information is not being supplied by the PIO. Sir, earlier, it has been noticed that initially when the proceedings under RTI act was started, Information Commissioners, in their orders were used to give the detail of information asked and the reply given by the PIO, which helped the information seekers to use the same format, but this is not being by the present Information Commissioners, which needs to be looked into. For reference, you may consult the decision of Sh. Kailash Gandhi, IC. Sir, moreover, information asked in the questionnaire manner is being denied on the plea that the same is not covered under 2f. Sir, this needs a solution.
Even, sir, information asked e.g. how many posts were vacant, what was the procedure, whether this has been done or not etc, except why, which has already clarified by the Bombay High court, is being denied, which needs to be looked into. Sir, I convey my sincere thanks to all the members of the RTI foundation of India for this common cause for the poor people of this country. Sir, if possible, kindly also supply me the copy of important decision of CIC or any court of law given in favour of the information seekers.
With kind regards,
Hoping to hear from you
