Re: [HumJanenge] FYI

1.Non compliance of Information Commissioner's Orders is not a contempt of Court !!!!!!
  One should approach again Information Commission to direct the PIO to comply Commission's orders and also demabd to impose penalty on PIO.
2. We are famous ( infamous ) either for nullifying any powerful legislation and / or for  misusing/ abusing legislations
3. Public awareness only create proper implementation and enforcement of any legslatiion and RTI act is not an exception.
4. Yes, Pen is mightier than sword only once upon a time. Now what is required is rallies, public functions / mass gatherings to move government machinary including our netas. Let us not only blame the Govt machinary. It is Netas who can bring in change in the attitude of govt machinary. Unless NETAS get the heat of RTI we cannnot expect proper enforcement of RTI act.
5. What is the program for  RTI activists group to take on netas. Let us discuss.

This is why I have all along been mentioning that the rti act has been put on ventilator by the information commissioners and judges. In fact this is not the only case of hc rules being anti-rti. The high courts-most of them- have prescribed exorbitant application fees, introduced illegal fee for 1st appeal, introduced formats for application, 1st appeal etc. In fact I am yet to come across anybody who has got any satisfactory reply to his/her application made to any court.

Dear All,

Greetings from AFD!

Pls find Attached is a RTI sent to the the Jharkhand High Court and a reply received from them. This is to inform you that the Jharkhand High Court (Right to Information) Rules,2007 are not in harmony with the provisions of the RTI Act, 2005 as seen in the reply received where they are asking for the applicant's motive behind obtaining such information - whether it is "proper and legal".

According to the RTI Act, 2005 Section 6(2) says ''an applicant making a request for information shall not be required to give any reason for requesting the information or any other personal details..........''
