Re: [rti_india] Re: What have we done to deserve such dumb ICs in the CIC ?


Mr Ashish,

A majority of the RTI applicants in this country are not bureaucrats trained in precise drafting or from Oxbridge. Show it to your next door (hopefully non babu) neighbor. Even he/she will understand what the applicant has asked for.

Maybe you might like to send the applicant to the World Bank too !

PS: BTW, you might like to train some of the ICs in the CIC in precise drafting of their orders too.

Dear Jam

If anyone is "dumb" it is the person who posted this message,

The CPIO's reply to query 1 was precise, as was the AA's.
Ms Singh in her capacity as second appellate has delivered an
unexceptionable decision upholding the department's view
(and highlighting the importance of precise.drafting by
RTI applicants).

Applicant asked for various information from BIS and the first one was:

Qus.1. Please send me your office newly published manual (17 points manual of booklet) belonging to the year 2008-09, according under section 4(1)(b) of the Right to Information Act. 2005.

To this, the PIO replied:

Ans. Your Query is not clear.

The First Appellate Authority (FAA)/Dy. Director General (South), Bureau of Indian
Standards (BIS) vide his order dated 16.10.2009 upheld the reply / decision of the CPIO.

And our IC SS in the CIC ruled:

During the hearing the Respondent submit, in respect to point no. 1 of the RTI
Application, that the Applicant has not mentioned the specific manual / booklet he is
referring to in his application. The BIS is using various manuals for the activities being
carried out and the manuals are already placed in Public Domain. The Commission
holds that since the Appellant not mentioned the specific information he has sought, the
Respondent have not been able to furnish the requisite documents to him.


Any more vacancies available in the World Bank please ?
