[HumJanenge] Requesting Information about Lokayukata

Dear Major Ravi and RTI Activists,
Wish you all a Very Very Happy, Healthy, Peaceful, Bright and prosperous NEW YEAR 2011. 
1.   What are the powers and Functions of a State Lokayukata?
2.   Can he seek information from the Chief Minister (CM) of the State?
3.   As per my knowledge, favourites of the CM are se3lecte3d for thiws post.
4.   Can any RTI activist seek information under RTI Act, 2005 from Lokayukata?
5.   When an officer of the State Government under CM says, if you want Fundamental Right of EQUALITY before Law and Equal Protection of Law 
      under Article 14 of the Indian Constitution, you go to the HIGH COURT or Supreme Court of India. Since I have been given 
      quasi-judicial functions under the Cooperative Societies Act. You cannot demand even NATURAL JUSTICE from me. You will have to go the HC or SC.for that.
Shall appreciate an early response,
Regards N bw     
Hari Goyal
Director,Right to Information- Centre

I fail to understand why the private sector banks are out of RTI ambit while they have been estabilished after getting permission from the Govt.and working under the government (RBI) norms.The same can be said about discoms viz BSES and Rajdhani Power Ltd in Delhi.

Thats a good advice, Adv Charly.
Incidently while both public sector banks and pvt sector banks do the same businessti dicriminatory for one set of banks to be subject to rti act while the others are not? In any case NO bank would give third party info to anybody except states' investigating agencies.

Here is more background on this:

My wife has filed Dowry harrassment charges. She alleges that her father got a loan from ICICI Bank, putting his home as collateral for dowry. I am seeking information from ICICI Bank in this regard to support my case and get justice. The police isn't taking the pain to enquire the same. If I can somehow get this information before the case goes to court, the police would be duty bound to not file a blind chargesheet based on allegations, rather do further investigations properly and give us a clean chit.

                I request U to put some more details of  the matter in question. People will understand better in case there is some feasibility in using RTI for a larger cause.

Re, the 2 previous posts

1) ACF_ANAND: should it be "hence you CANNOT directly seek the information from them" ?

2) R.K.Mukherjee: Most of the advise you have given is completely off the mark. The question is who HOLDS the info Mr Victor seeks. If it is ICICI Bank only, then chances are bleak using RTI. If it concerns his own grievance, he can use the RBI's mandated grievance (3 layer) redressal scheme which terminates in the Ombudsman,

ICICI Bank is a private bank. Hecne You can seek directly information
from them. But if govt bodies such as RBI if has any acess to these
information, then you can acess those information through the same
public authority.
