Who is responsible for rectifying seepage problems in DDA flats?
The appellant filed an application under the Right to Information (RTI) Act with the Delhi Development Authority (DDA) seeking information regarding the responsibility for rectifying seepage problems in a particular DDA flat and the authority to be approached if the problem continues etc. The First Appellate Authority (FAA) transferred the application to the other wing of DDA.
View of CIC
The Central Information Commission (CIC) observed that appellant has sought information which the respondent must provide. The CIC directed the respondent to collect the information from the concerned wings of the DDA and provide the same to the appellant.
There are problems persisting in the system for which no one seems to be responsible. RTI Act has helped in pointing to the same and has been instrumental in finding solutions for it.
