In a stunning decision the CIC ruled in that even pvt. schools come under RTI ambit

Central information commission in its june 4 2014 judgement has ruled that even private schools are under the ambit of Right to Information irrespective of the fact that whether it is aided by the govt. or not..

In a landmark decision on 4th of June CIC has said that though RTE (Right to Free Education) Act 2009 children upto the age of 14 years are eligible to free education and private schools that are recognised by the Delhi govt. are not exception..
The CIC was acting on a petition seeking information about the information of a private school employee from its employer, where the applicant accused school administration of refusing to provide information giving excuses that school was a private entity..

The CIC clarified that though the school was a private entity but it was governed by the Delhi education rules and also by the cooperative societies act 1973 that enables a citizen to seek information pertaining to private entities therefore one can seek information from the Public authorities about the private schools relating to admission and appointment of qualified teachers for the successful implementation of chidrens’ Right to Education Act. 2009..

It has paved the way for people to seek information about the admissions of their kids.

RTI application for MGNREGA

Friends we often see that MGNREGA work is done in our villages and agents eat up the wages of labourers and also cover up by making false cash vouchers, while actual vouchers are not provided to the common men for inspection…

From my experience i have witnessed such misfeasance of NREGA funds..

Fake Job cards are made without the consent of workers, irony is that the actual worker doesn’t even know that a job card under NREGA has been made for him and the brokers draw money on behalf of such workers..

In such a situation if you have any doubt you simply file an RTI application for NREGA works addressed to the public information officer of the village panchayat concerned, and ask them the certified photocopy of master roll workers’ attendance register, list of job card holders of your village and panchayat..

Attach appropriate IPO for seeking information according to your state’s RTI rules

For Haryana RTI Fees is Rs 50, For Gujarat it is Rs-20, for Goa it is Rs-20, For Sikkim it is Rs-100,for almost all other states it is just Rs-10..

This will make them hand to mouth and they will provide you information however reluctantly, and in such a way you can bridle the corrupt people involved in NREGA scam..

NREGA is designed for the upliftment of the poor so it must reach to the right people…

Threfore it is our request to you not to sit idle if there is any scam going on; do help us to root it out by filing just an RTI, you can’t imagine how much it will help to eradicate corruption and thus bring prosperity to our poor common men…

Till now Onine RTI filing facility is not available in most part of the country barring a few states, like, Maharashtra, Bihar, and Odisha where online RTI can be filed.

MGNREGA also come under the ambit of RTI Act 2005..

Ordinary Postal stamps to be instrument of RTI Fees: CIC

People seeking information under RTI Act may now be able to use postal stamps as application fee if a recommendation of the Central Information Commission is accepted by the Centre.

Two Information Commissioners in two separate cases– R K Jain and Raghubir Singh– have made a common recommendation to the Department of Personnel and Training for implementing postal stamps as a mode of payment of RTI fee thus reducing hassles of applicants.

RTI users now have to pay a fee of Rs 10 either in cash, bank demand draft or Indian Postal Order to get information.

Some authorities like Army and Indian air force refuse to accept applications drawn in favour of Accounts Officer despite clear directives of the Department of Personnel and Training causing hassles to applicants.

“The appellant has submitted that the postal department’s recommendation for use of ordinary postal stamps for payment of RTI fee is both practical and user friendly. The Commission finds merit in the appellant’s submissions and would urge the DoPT to consider this at the earliest.

“In this connection it is noted that the government of Tamil Nadu has already allowed payment of RTI fee by affixing court fee stamps, Information Commissioner Basant Seth said in the matter of activist R K Jain.

Agreeing with Seth, Information Commissioner Sridhar Acharyulu also issued an exhaustive order on the issue recommending to DoPT to avail the opportunity of giving New Year Gift to the citizens by permitting and publicising the use of ordinary postal stamps for the payment of RTI fee.

Accepting postal stamps for RTI fee would resolve many difficulties in payment, besides preventing wastage of public money in returning or rejecting the IPOs or spending much larger amounts than Rs 10, for realising Rs 10, and avoidable litigation,” he said.

Acharyulu said returning the IPO to the appellant involves writing a letter on a white paper, covering in an envelop, spending public office’s time which could have been used for some other productive work besides spending Rs 25 or Rs 30 for speed post.

The case relates to applicant Raghubir Singh whose application was rejected an year ago as it was not correctly drawn in the favour of authority designated by the Directorate of Education, Government of Delhi.

“In all the public authority will be spending approximately Rs 35 to Rs 50. It will also cause unnecessary expenditure for the appellant, who has already spend Rs 20 to get a postal order for Rs 10. For returning and taking a different IPO he has to spend again the same amount,” Acharyulu said.

The Commissioner said spending Rs 50 to reject the IPO worth Rs 10 on silly grounds would amount to wastage of Rs 50 plus Rs 60.

For Filing RTIs in Banks, all you need to do is just write an application on a blank plain paper addressed to the PIO of the Bank branch concerned…In the subject column you simply write, ” to seek information under RTI Act 2005.

After that you simply write your application and mention query point-wise and ask them valid reason of refusal of loan to you. this will circumvent the corrupt officials who are always in the habit of bothering customers over petty points and want bribe to even sanction loans.

At the end of the application on bottom write of the application put your signature with date.

Attach an IPO of Rs 10 along with the application…take a photocopy of the same for your future references.
