Respected sir,

While I was waiting for an acknowledgement of my earlier communication to the Commission, another interesting and remarkable thing came to my notice regarding the certification of the orders passed by the Hon’ble Tripura Information Commission (TIS).

Like Karnataka, Punjab is a very rich in its culture and administrative history. The procedure set by the Punjab Administration, even before the independence, are still adopted by many as a model.

But how this was amiss in the Punjab State Information Commission?

I ventured to surf the website of the Information Commission of a very small state – one of the seven sisters of the Northeast – The State of Tripura [http://rtitripura.nic.in] and went on to see the decisions of the Tripura Information Commissioners at [http://tripurarti.nic.in/CIC_Decisions.php].

    IRRESPONSIBLE AND CARELESS ACT OF INFORMATION COMMISSIONER SRI JAGADANANDA & TARUN KANTI MISHRA OF ODISHA INFORMATION COMMISSION.



    ---------- Forwarded message ----------

    Subject: [odishasoochanaadhikarabhiyan] IRRESPONSIBLE AND CARELESS ACT OF INFORMATION COMMISSIONER SRI JAGADANANDA & TARUN KANTI MISHRA OF ODISHA INFORMATION COMMISSION.
    To: odishasoochanaadhikarabhiyan-/JYPxA39Uh5TLH3MbocFFw@public.gmane.org



    Dear Friends, 

    I  have asked  Two Information in separate application Under RTI Act to the Public Information officer of Town Police Station, Puri on 21 July 2011 by Speed Post (As the PIO-cum-IIC  Inspector Bijayananda Mohanty refused to take the Application by hand) :-

    1.      RTI  Application No. 01-  Property statement of Inspector Bijayananda Mohanty of Town Police Station, Puri,

    2.      RTI  Application No. 02- Information regarding the FRI No. 189 of 2010.

    Both the Speed Post envelopes containing RTI Application returned to me with an endorsement by the Postman “Refused to Accept” on 26th Jul 2011( dear friends you can imagine the 

    daringness of the PIO-cum-IIC of one Police Station to do this 

    unlawful act  by refusing to accept one Speed Post Envelop, this

     Police Station is looking after the law and order of an area which is

     consisting more than Two Lakhs of Population,  Suppose instead of 

    RTI Application if it would have been a Complaint sent by Speed Post 

    by one Helpless  Rape Victim and the Inspector of that Police Station

     is refusing to accept the Speed Post Letter then what type of justice

     the rape victim can get from the Odisha Police!)

    Then I appealed to the First Appellate Authority of District Police Office, Puri (Superintendent of Police) on 29 Jul 2010, the Appellate Authority ordered the PIO Inspector Bijayananda Mohanty to provide information within Seven days & give explanation for refusing to accept the Speed Post RTI Application, but no action was taken by the PIO,

    Appeals and Complaint cases was filed with Information Commissioner on 17 Oct 2011 (C.C. NO 4381 & 4382 of 2011/ SA 411 & 422 of 2011),

    Both the complaint cases were heard carelessly on 12.12.2011 by Chief Information Commissioner Tarun Kanti Mishra (without giving intimation to both the parties), he has completed his formality  by asking explanation from the PIO for imposition of Penalty (Till date it is not known whether any explanation was given by the PIO or not, I am sure that no further action is being taken by Sri Tarun Kanti Mishra),


    Now it is the turn of Information Commissioner Sri Jagadananda

    31st Aug 2012 was fixed for hearing of Second Appeal  411 & 422 of 2011 by Information commissioner Sri Jagadananda, I was present (I have travelled a distance of Sixty Kms from Puri to Bhubaneswar for the hearing of this case) but the PIO Inspector Bijayananda Mohanty was absent without any intimation on the day of hearing hence another date for hearing was fixed to 19th Oct 2012 by Information Commissioner Sri Jagadananda, I returned to Puri without any result by killing my valuable time

    On 19th Oct 2012 again the PIO was absent hence once more the hearing was postponed to 03 Dec 2012 by Information Commissioner Sri Jagadananda,

     

    On 03rd Dec 2012, I was present (I have travelled from Puri to Bhubaneswar for the hearing of this case) but the PIO 

    Inspector Bijayananda Mohanty was absent without any intimation, 

    Hence the Information Commissioner Sri Jagadananda played the same role by fixing another date to 14th Jan 2012.


    I have lost faith in these irresponsible Information Commissioners, especially in Sri Jagadananda, he should have imposed Penalty of Rs 25,000/- in each Appeal (Total Rs 50,000/-)on the PIO Inspector Bijayananda Mohanty for refusing to accept my Speed Post RTI Application  and ordered Departmental Proceedings against the PIO for not attending the hearing, instead he has intentionally harassed me by killing valuable time and wasting my money, these types of harassment to the Appellant/Complainant is done by this Information Commissioner intentionally, on 12.12.2011 one RTI Activist expressed his dissatisfaction over the decision of Sri Jagadananda in a gentle manner and preferred to appeal in High Court, suddenly Sri Jagadananda called one Police Constable and ordered him to drag the RTI Activist and detain him till his further order and the Constable did the same, the RTI Activist was detained till 1:30 PM near the entrance of the Information Commission on that day.


    I am giving scan copy of all the relevant documents in attachment related to this allegation against the PIO and the 

    Information Commissioner Sri Jagadananda. Five Hundred and Twenty One (521) Days 

    passed, I have neither got information to my RTI Applications dated 26th July 2011 nor any legal action is being taken against the PIO. 

    With Regards,

    JAYANTA KUMAR DAS,

    SATYA NAGAR(SIDHAMAHABIR PATANA), PURI, ODISHA-752002, 9861770749(M)

    about hearing before CIC

    I was present for hearing of my second appeal before CIC Smt Sushama
    Singh
    She gave only 15 minutes time for hearing and when i told about
    provisions of RTI Act and specially provision of section 22 she told
    that there is judgment of supreme court on it without quoting
    reference of the judgment (citation of Supreme court including name of
    petition report like AIR etc)
    Even she was not interested to hear my view The hearing i feel is just
    completion of formality and CIC converted Right to information into
    right to deny information
    date of hearing 18 December2012 against company registrar

      Can We Stall Elections Under Bogus Representation of Peoples Act, 1950-51?

      Dear Friends,

      Namaste!

      Elections to Mumbai Hsg Fed stalled is significant victory.

      Can we have grand victory by stalling Elections under bogus Representation of Peoples Act, 1950-51 which speaks only of elections & nothing about representation process?

      If we can become victorious in stalling Elections under the above Act, which is conspiracy against Democracy since independence, we will have betters MPs & MLAs & every issue will start getting resolved fast in better, efficient and effective manner.

      We must take up this challenge. Awaiting your response.

      Best Regards,

      Navin Pandya

      RTI - CIC should have heard RIL in RTI insider trading case:HC

      CIC should have heard RIL in RTI insider trading case:HC

      Bombay High Court today said Reliance Industries ought to have been heard by the Chief Information Commissioner Satyendra Mishra before directing Sebi to disclose all details related to an insider trading case of 2007 involving Reliance Petroleum.

      Mishra, an appellate authority in Central Information Commission(CIC), had on November 6 passed an order directing capital market regulator Securities and Exchange Board of India (Sebi) to disclose all details about the case on an appeal filed by RTI activist A K Agarwal.

      The case relates to the merger of Reliance Petroleum with Reliance Industries and the short sale of shares in the former by entities related to the latter. The merger between the two companies took place in 2009 and the company has been charged of indulging in insider trading.

      The CIC, acting on a petition filed by Agarwal, ordered SEBI on November 6 to disclose the details of investigation in the case or consent order proceedings. However, Sebi approached the high court challenging the CIC order.

      A division bench of D Y Chandrachud and Amjad Sayed today, while directing Reliance Industries to file its reply affidavit to the petition by January 21, said,"Wasn't Reliance bound to be heard by CIC before disclosure order was passed?"

      "If the disclosure pertains to a third party, in this case Reliance, then the third party should be heard before order is passed. They (Reliance) are entitled to it," Justice Chandrachud said.

      Agarwal, however, told the court that as per section 8(2) of the RTI Act, if the information sought is in public interest, then it outweighs protection of the third party. "This is a case of insider trading worth Rs 500 crore. Penalty is up to Rs 1500 crore," Agarwal argued.

      In its petition, Sebi said the order was passed by Mishra and not the CIC as a whole, makes it "bad in law" and therefore "null and void and of no effect". Apart from Mishra, the CIC has seven other members.

      Reliance Ind has approached Sebi to settle the case through mechanism of consent process where an entity being investigated pays a fine without admitting fault and the regulator drops the case.

      Legal queries -

      Whether the order issued by Chief IC is really bad in law and null as the same has not been passed by a larger bench.

      If the IC is convinced of the prayer made by the appellant without giving hearing to the respondent and issued order for providing information, whether such order is valid or not.

      What about the thousands of orders issued by single benches of Information Commissioners?

      Whether other public authorities will not challenge the other orders of CIC citing this order of the Hon'ble Bombay High Court.

      It is not strange that an autonomous body SEBI, is challenging the CIC, another autonomous body, both created to protect the interest of citizens, saying that the order passed by the Chief IC is bad in law and therefore null and void as CIC has seven other members. Can it be construed of taking side with the Reliance, a cash rich corporate house?

      Whether this order should be challenged in the Supreme Court.

      BMIC (NICE) Viruddha Janandolana
       
      Public Meeting to Rejuvenate Peoples’ Campaign  
       
      Thursday ­ December 20, 2012; 11:00 am to ­ 3:00 pm, Freedom Park ­ Bangalore 
       
      The Bangalore Mysore Infrastructure Corridor Project (BMIC) has been implemented by the Government of Karnataka (GoK) on a PPP basis with Nandi Infrastructure Corridor Enterprises Ltd. (NICEL) since 1995. Now in its 17th year of implementation, the BMIC project has made little progress. The social injustice meted out in the name of the project is too glaring to be ignored. There have been several campaigns and protests against the injustices of the BMIC project in the past. Now, even as the government shows little sign of support for the people, there is an urgent need to rejuvenate the campaign and continue the fight for justice. This public meeting is being called for to rejuvenate the campaign. Medha Patkar and other prominent leaders will address the gathering. Requesting all of you to attend the meeting in large numbers
       
      Here are the several injustices which are being committed due to this project – 
       
      a. Total extent of land required for the project: 20,193 acres, out of which private land required is 13,237 acres. But private land notified is 20,145 acres! This is in addition to 5,688 acres of government land already handed over to the company; more than 144 villages in full and 52 villages in part and lakhs of people stand to be and are in constant fear of displaced even though their land is not even required for the project
       
      b. Illegal demolitions of private property by henchmen of NICE with police protection is common place and false cases are foisted by NICEL against displaced persons and those opposing their illegal actions. Landowners are being prevented from cultivating or from putting up constructions on their own lands.  Violent attacks against displaced persons by henchmen of NICE leading loss of life & property are common place. 
       
      c. Small farmers, labourers, house owners and entrepreneurs have lost their homes as well as their only source of livelihood. Government has not taken up any measures to rehabilitate such persons. 
       
      d. Apart from the private land, 5688 acres of Government land already handed over to NICE. Forests such as BM kaval, Handigundi, lakes such as Gottigere, Begur, Madwara and 13 others, and community lands, not falling within the scope of the BMIC project are taken over and have been destroyed. This is in complete violation of the plans which were submitted for Environmental clearance
       
      e. Bangaloreans are deprived of a toll free peripheral road courtesy manipulations of official records by NICE and Government officers. Peripheral road is constructed by NICE on an alignment earmarked for the construction of a Peripheral Road by the BDA. Even though this road is now complete, lands on both sides of this alignment illegally usurped by NICEL are notified for large scale real estate development. Peripheral Road which was to be constructed by NICEL as a part of the BMIC project sanctioned by the Karnataka State Government is not at all constructed. 
       
      f. Expressway to Mysore is on paper while NICE engages in large scale real estate in & around Bangalore. 
       
      g. Lands of corporate houses and politicians are unlawfully excluded. They make windfall gains at public expense. Politicians across party lines, bureaucrats, industry leaders now face serious charges of corruption. 
       
      i. Lastly, the compensation amount fixed for notified lands is atrociously low
       
      h. Several public inquiries and debates on the issue have been thwarted by NICEL on one pretext or another
       
      In order to set right the social injustice, we now demand the following – 
       
      I. Immediate identification and publishing of the lands required for the BMIC project and dropping of acquisition proceedings in respect of lands falling outside the scope of the BMIC project. 
       
      II. Immediate recovery of public property from NICE which is falling outside the scope of the project
       
      III. Declaration of Peripheral Road and Link Road illegally constructed by NICE as a toll free public amenity
       
      IV. Investigation & prosecution of corrupt ministers, bureaucrats & industry leaders associated with the project 
       
      V. Dropping of false cases against displaced persons and payment of compensation to displaced persons for illegal demolitions and malicious prosecutions
       
      We request you all to raise your voice against this injustice and attend the public meeting on this issue.

        Plan to Prevent Corruption & other Democratic Evils

        Dear All,
         
        Namaste!
         

        My Plan to Prevent Corruption & all other Democratic Evils:

        1. Replace bogus Representation of Peoples Act, 1950-51 with new JanPratinidhi Act enacted with     public suggestions.
        2. Introduce Voters Education & Protection.
        3. Scrap UPSC/State PSCs & create more institutions to qualify Public Servants with Public Spirit.
        4. Reserve Rajya Sabha entirely for Civil Society to balance Politics Vs Civil Society.
        5. Create Regulator for Political Parties like Regulators for other organisations.
        6. Enact excellent Corporate Laws purely in national/public interest.
        7. Strengthening Right to Information Act, 2005 for excellent public accountability & transparency.

        8. Enacting & Enforcing Excellent Citizens Charter for Excellent Public Service.

        9. Reviewing & Scrapping present laws unsuitable to Democracy.

        10. Holding Constitutional Heads, ie, President & Governors of States responsible for better Governance.

        Are citizens ready and willing to work for this plan?

        Best regards,

        Navin Pandya

        Irresponsible Act of Information commissioner Sri Jagadananda towards Appellant/Complainant

         

        Dear friends 

        During appointing any person  as State Information Commissioner, the government  should arrange  proper training and conduct  examination of the Information Commissioners before their appointment to the post of Information Commissioner because it is being observed that the Information commissioner Sri Jagadananda is not at all aware of the rules, Act of the RTI, for example in Second Appeal 439 of 2011 dated 09th Feb 2012 , the commissioner has reflected my(Appellant) character  falsely that I am involved in court cases and criminal activities without any proof  because the PIO  of Health department has mentioned the same in his reply by showing some news papers cuttings (for your kind information On 28th Jun 2011 I have handed over one Sub-inspector Kashinath Dash of Town Police Station, Puri, Odisha to Vigilance Bhubaneswar as the Sub-Inspector was caught by vigilance  officers while taking bribe Rs 20,000/- from me near Hospital square, Puri at 10:30 AM on 28th June 2011 hence a lot corrupt police officer in Puri and some fake journalists are behind me to fix me in false cases).

         This type of immature, brainless, careless, irresponsible act is not at all expected from one matured, highly responsible and intelligent person who is appointed as Information Commissioner by the Governor of Odisha.

        Mr. Jagadananda ha got no right to do so, he is not being appointed by the Governor of Odisha to defame the complainant/ Appellant and reflect the same in his decision, instead of taking disciplinary action against the PIO for doing so. One Appellant / Complainant is appealing or registering a complaint / appeal to get information and to get justice from the Information Commissioner, if the complainant/ Appellant is being defamed and insulted by the Information commissioner himself then what we can expect from the Public Information officers and First appellate authorities! This type of activity of Information Commissioner Jagadananda will certainly discourage any RTI activist who is fighting against corruption and corrupt government servants.

        Hence after going through the decision on Appeal 439 of 2011, I have objected and wrote a letter to Sri Jagadananda on 19.5.2012 by Speed Post as well as by email by condemning his decision but so far I have not received any reply to my condemnation. If this type of irresponsible act has happened by mistake then Sri Jagadananda should have asked apology but he has not asked any apology to me after doing this blunder mistake. It shows that how serious he is towards the RTI Act!  

        I request all the citizens to go through the Appeal 439 of 2011 and my reply dated 19.5.2012 to Sri Jagadananda(Scan copy of the Appeal and the reply is given in Attachment) because this type of incident can happen with any citizen.   
        WITH REGARDS
