For the last couple of years, our country has been witnessing a major political upheaval and turmoil. It all started when crores of alert and upright citizens, angered with the corruption prevailing in all fields, rose and came onto the streets across the country to support the demand for passing a powerful anti corruption law in the form of the Jan Lokpal Bill.

 

Being a journalist who has always gone beyond the columns to support the cause and a Right To Information Act worker myself, I have always believed in transparent governance and committed myself to the cause of eradicating corruption from all walks of life. This belief of mine prompted me join the andolan and indeed I received an overwhelming support from Punekars, especially the youth. It was then that I realised that the citizenry strived for clean, non-corrupt politics and efficient, people friendly governance but such was the state of affairs that when it came to voting they were being forced to choose between the devil and the deep sea as dominance of existing political parties left little space for other alternatives. It was then that I decided to join Nav Bharat Democratic Party, a new generation political party launched by people who shared the same belief as mine.

 

It was this belief which resulted in announcement of my candidature for the 2014 Lok Sabha elections from Pune.

 

Ever since my candidature was announced, I have been campaigning to bring in political awareness among the people and canvassing for the need to vote for non-corrupt, clean, transparent and efficient governance. I have received mighty support from the media and many citizens in my endeavour.

 

However, lately, many a people and political outfits sharing the same beliefs that I hold are getting actively involved in the election process. If all such like-minded individuals and political parties were to come together, it would have been a formidable political force in the arena of elections. However, despite my efforts to bring in such unity, this possibility appears to be a distant dream. Therefore, in these elections, one can expect an increase in the number of parties and independent candidates contesting the elections. This is slated to defeat the cause of anti-corruption mission as large number of candidates professing same ideals will result in confusing people, dividing votes and thereby helping those people so despised by the citizenry, to win and come to rule again.

 

Considering this, I have decided not to contest the upcoming Lok Sabha election and instead concentrate on working on building pressure through my campaigns on those in power to utilise their powers in judicious and transparent manner and to give efficient governance and clean administration.

 

I take this opportunity to thank the leadership of Nav Bharat Party, my colleagues, the media and all those well wishers who invested their faith in me and stood by me and my belief. I am sure they would support my decision and continue to be with me in my continuing attempts to ensure transparency in governance and clean politics through my journalism and activism.

 

I would also life to make following appeal to the voters of Pune:


Please cast your vote. It is not only a matter of exercising your franchise but also a duty towards your nation. Failing to cast your vote is encouragement for plunderers of the country.


Use your good conscience to decide who to vote for. Remember in the present fluid political situation and days of politics of convenience, every vote cast for criminals, corrupt people who have no regard for you is a compromise with the future of the nation.

 

If you want your children to grow up in an economically developed, socially progressive, corruption free, communally integrated, harmonized, and strong nation, ensure that you exercise your franchise and vote for the right candidate.

आपल्या देशात गेली काही वर्षे राजकीय परिवर्तनाचे वारे वहात असून त्यामुळे अनेक महत्वाची स्थित्यंतरे घडून येत आहेत. देशात माजलेल्या सर्वव्यापी भ्रष्टाचाराला आळा बसण्यासाठी जनलोकपाल विधेयकासारखा कडक कायदा करावा या मागणीसाठी देशभरातील कोट्यावधी जागरूक आणि प्रामाणिक नागरिक रस्त्यावर उतरले ही भारतात येऊ घातलेल्या मोठ्या राजकीय बदलाची नांदीच होती हे आता स्पष्ट झालेले आहे.

जनहिताशी बांधिलकी असलेली पत्रकार आणि माहिती अधिकार कार्यकर्ती या नात्याने मी नेहमीच वेगवेगळ्या समस्यांवर समाजातील वेगवेगळ्या समाजघटकांना एकत्र आणून तोडगा शोधण्याचे प्रयत्न केलेले आहेत. त्याखेरीज कारभार स्वच्छ असावा, सामाजिक तसेच राजकीय जीवनात पारदर्शकता असावी आणि भ्रष्टाचाराला आळा बसावा यासाठी मी सातत्याने प्रयत्न केले आहेत. सामाजिक मूल्यांशी असलेल्या माझ्या या बांधिलकीपोटीच मी स्वत: जनलोकपाल आंदोलनात सहभाग घेतला आणि सर्व थरातील पुणेकरांनी, विशेषतः तरुणांनी माझ्या या भूमिकेचे स्वागत करून मला भरघोस पाठिंबा देखील दिला. नागरिकांशी सातत्याने सुरु असलेल्या माझ्या संवादातून मला असे लक्षात आले कि कारभार लोकाभिमुख, भ्रष्टाचारमुक्त आणि कार्यक्षम असावा अशी कळकळ सर्वांनाच वाटत असली तरी प्रचलित राजकीय पद्धतीमध्ये लोकांना हवे असलेले स्वच्छ चारित्र्याचे आणि प्रामाणिक लोक राजकारणात प्रवेश करत नाहीत आणि त्यामुळे मतदारांना उडदामाजी काळे गोरे हा न्याय लावून मतदान करावे लागते. त्यामुळेच मी माझ्याशी समविचारी असलेल्या लोकांनी स्थापन केलेल्या नवभारत डेमोक्रॅटिक पार्टी या पक्षात प्रवेश केला. लोकांना हवा असलेला चांगला राजकीय पर्याय उभा करणे ही आपली जबाबदारी आहे या विचारातूनच मी नवभारत डेमोक्रॅटिक पार्टीच्या वतीने पुणे लोकसभा मतदारसंघातून २०१४ सालामध्ये होत असलेली लोकसभेची निवडणूक लढवण्याचा विचार केला.

माझी उमेदवारी जाहीर झाल्यापासून सातत्याने मी मतदारांमध्ये राजकीय जागृती निर्माण करण्याचा आणि जे स्वच्छ, पारदर्शक, भ्रष्टाचारमुक्त आणि कार्यक्षम कारभार करू शकतील अशा उमेदवारांनाच मते देण्याबाबत जनतेला प्रवृत्त करण्याचा जो प्रयत्न केला त्याला देखील माध्यमे, विविध संस्था आणि कार्यकर्ते तसेच समाजाच्या सर्वच थरातील लोकांकडून उत्स्फूर्त प्रतिसाद मिळाला. त्याबद्दल मी सर्वांचीच ऋणी आहे.

परंतु गेल्या काही महिन्यात परिस्थितीत अनेक बदल घडून आलेले आहेत. एका बाजूला सामान्य माणसांमध्ये राजकीय घडामोडींबाबत उत्सुकता निर्माण झालेली असून दुसऱ्या बाजूला माझ्याशी मिळतेजुळते विचार मांडणाऱ्या अनेक व्यक्ती आणि पक्षांनी निवडणुकांच्या राजकारणात उतरून काम करण्याची इच्छा व्यक्त केली आहे. वस्तुतः अशाप्रकारे विचार करण्याऱ्या सर्व व्यक्ती आणि पक्षांची एकजूट झाली तर खूपच कमी साधनसंपत्तीचा वापर करून ध्येय साध्य करणे सहज शक्य होईल. पण अशी एकजूट होण्याची चिन्हे सध्या दिसून येत नाहीत. परिणामी निवडणूक लढवणाऱ्या पक्ष आणि उमेदवारांच्या संख्येत वाढ होणे अपरिहार्य आहे. त्यामुळे सजग मतदारांच्या मतांची विभागणी होऊन लोकांना ज्यांच्या भ्रष्टाचाराचा वीट आला आहे असेच पक्ष आणि उमेदवार पुन्हा विजयी होण्याची शक्यता आहे.

ही शक्यता ध्यानात घेऊन जनतेचे हित डोळ्यासमोर ठेऊन मी येत्या लोकसभा निवडणुकीसाठी उमेदवारी अर्ज न भरण्याचा निर्णय घेतला आहे. अर्थातच सत्ताधाऱ्यांनी सत्तेचा वापर न्याय्य प्रकारे आणि जनतेच्या हितासाठीच करावा, कारभार भ्रष्टाचारमुक्त आणि कार्यक्षम असावा यासाठी माझे प्रयत्न यापुढेही सुरूच राहणार आहेत.

नवभारत डेमोक्रॅटिक पार्टीतील नेते आणि माझे सहकारी, माध्यमे तसेच माझ्यावर ज्यांनी अढळ विश्वास दर्शवला आणि मला सतत पाठिंबा दिला अशा सर्वांची मी सदैव ऋणी राहीन. माझ्या या निर्णयाचेही ते स्वागत करतील आणि यापुढील काळातही माझ्या कार्याला त्यांच्याकडून पाठिंबा मिळेल असा मला विश्वास आहे.

मी पुणेकर जनतेला पुढील आवाहन देखील करू इच्छिते:

कृपया आपल्या मतदानाच्या अधिकाराचा वापर करा. हा बहुमोल अधिकार वाया घालवू नका. मतदान करण्याचे टाळणे ही देशाला लुटणाऱ्या लोकांना अप्रत्यक्षपणे केलेली मदतच आहे. त्यामुळे आपल्या सदसदविवेकबुद्धीला पटेल त्या उमेदवारालाच मत द्या. गुन्हेगारी पार्श्वभूमी असलेल्या, भ्रष्ट, तुमच्याबद्दल कोणतीही आस्था असलेल्या उमेदवाराच्या विरोधात मतदान करणे हा तुमचा हक्क आहे याचे सदैव भान ठेवा. आपली पुढची पिढी आर्थिकदृष्ट्या प्रगत, सामाजिकदृष्ट्या पुरोगामी, भ्रष्टाचारमुक्त, सबळ देशात बंधुभावाने सौहार्दाच्या वातावरणात रहावी असे वाटत असेल तर सजगतेने आपला मतदानाचा अधिकार बजावा आणि योग्य त्या उमेदवारालाच आपले बहुमोल मत द्या!

DH: RTI activist shot dead for seeking information

 
 
 
RTI activist shot dead for seeking information
 
Lucknow, March 2, 2014, DHNS:
 
 
Zakir Siddique, an RTI activist, was allegedly shot dead by the supporters of panchyat chief of Lalbojhi village in Uttar Pradesh’s Shravasti district, about 250 kilometres from here, late on Saturday night.
The panchayat chief’s husband Jagdev Verma and other supporters have been charged with killing Zakir after the victim’s wife Kamanrunnisha lodged an FIR in this regard, police sources said.
 
 
According to reports, Zakir had sought details of development works being undertaken in the village by the panchayat chief and had filed an application under the RTI Act with the district development officer.
 
 
“He would often visit the district officials and complain about the lack of development works or misappropriation of funds by the panchayat office bearers and demand action,” Kamanrunnisha said.
 
 
He also reportedly threatened to approach the state information commission as district officials were reluctant to provide him the information. The panchayat chief’s husband and his supporters had warned Zakir of serious consequences and asked him to withdraw his RTI query but he had declined.
 
 
Jagdev Verma and his supporters intercepted Zakir near his home on Saturday night and allegedly opened fire at him after an altercation.
 
 
Zakir was rushed to the near by community health centre at Ikauna where he was declared brought dead.
 
 
Four people were taken into custody in connection with the killing while a main accused was absconding and a hunt has been launched to nab him, the police said.
 
 
RTI activists had been killed in the past for seeking information and threatening to expose corrupt public officials. An RTI activist had been killed in UP's Sonebhadra district earlier.

Moneylife: Now pay RTI fees online for 2,496 Central govt offices

 
 
 
 
Now pay RTI fees online for 2,496 Central govt offices
 
Vinita Deshmukh | 27/02/2014 12:28 PM |
 
 
A six year tenacious battle by Delhi-based RTI activist Commodore (retd) Lokesh Batra has resulted in the government facilitating eIPO for payment of RTI fees in 2,496 central government offices
 
Since 22 March 2013, only Indians abroad had the facility of paying Right to Information (RTI) fee online, for their e-RTI applications. Since 13 February 2014, all of us living in India too can use online RTI by paying the fee through electronic Indian Postal Order (eIPO) in 2,496 central government’s public authorities. As for public authorities of state governments, you can pay your RTI fees online but you need to take out a print-out of the eIPO and attach it to your RTI application.
 
 
According to RTI activist Commodore (retd) Lokesh Batra, who single-handedly has pursued this campaign since the last six years, there is much enthusiasm for the eIPO facility, but a mass public awareness needs to be created through media and non-governmental organisations (NGOs) working in the field of RTI.
 
 
The eIPO facility is important in terms of national savings too. As per a costing exercise undertaken in 2011-2012, the operational cost of a postal order is Rs37.45. This information came as a response to an RTI filed by an activist to the Department of Posts on 18 October 2013. An eIPO now comes virtually free, besides relieving citizens of the inconvenience of standing in long queues at Post Offices to procure an IPO.
 
 
In order to purchase the eIPO online, go to the e-Post Office Portal https://www.epostoffice.gov.in or India Post web-site www.indiapost.gov.in. A link for e-Post Office has been provided to create his/ her profile for the first time. Both Debit and Credit cards of any Bank powered by Visa/ Master can be used.
 
 
The Department of Posts, which has created this facility, spells out the following salient features of eIPO:
 

  • The eIPO facility is extended to Indian Citizens living in India

  • Indian Postal Order can be purchased online in electronic form termed as ‘electronic Indian Postal Order(eIPO)

    All the requirements for filing an RTI application as well as other provisions regarding eligibility, time limit, exemptions etc., as provided in the RTI Act, 2005 will continue to apply

  • The applicant will have to get himself/herself registered at ePost office portal of India Post i.e. https://www.epostoffice.gov.in or through India Post web site www.indiapost.gov.in (where a link for ePostoffice has been provided) to avail this facility to pay RTI fee. Email ID, Mobile number, address, date of birth and gender etc. will be captured at the time of registration.

  • For the process of registration as at (iv) above, email id and mobile number are mandatory. The codes for verification would be sent by the system on email id as well as mobile number provided while registering

  • The applicant has to select the Ministry/Department from whom he/she desires to seek the information under the RTI Act and the eIPO so generated can be used to seek information from that Ministry/Department only

  • Payment of RTI fee can be made using Debit card or Credit card of any Bank powered by VISA/Master

  • The eIPO service will be available at the web address www.epostoffice.gov.in It can also be accessed through the link given on India Post website www.indiapost.gov.in
  • A unique number for each transaction would be generated by the system which is to be used as eIPO number

  • A printout of the eIPO is required to be attached with the RTI application. If the RTI application is being filed electronically, eIPO is required to be attached as an attachment
 
Calling this as true participatory governance, Cmde Batra says the government responded positively to suggestions made by a citizen. So, what did it take to make eIPO, a reality? Following is the chronology of Cmde Batra’s campaign, to whom, all Indians in India and abroad need to thank.
 

  • It all started in October 2008 when Cmde Batra was visiting his daughter in Boston (USA) and wanted to file follow up RTI in the Nithari case but could not do as there was no facility for payment of RTI fee/cost from abroad

  • Between 2008 to 2013, Cmde Batra filed 150 RTI applications to Indian Mission in the US, Department of Personnel & Training (DOPT), Ministry of External Affairs (MEA), Prime Minister's Office (PMO) and Reserve Bank of India (RBI), Secretariats of President and Vice President and Leaders of Opposition in Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha. A complaint was also filed in Central Information Commission (CIC).

  • 16 August 2010: Secretary or DoPT addressed two identical letters to the than Secretary (Post) and the than Foreign Secretary seeking solution

  • 6 September 2010: Secretary (Post) offered solution through their Virtual Post Office

  • 22 March 2013: Electronic Indian Postal Order (e-IPO) launched for Indian Citizens’ Abroad" After protracted efforts/deliberations within Government and RBI and Activists; the Department of Posts (DOP) came out with service of Electronic Indian Postal Order more known as e-IPO. This is a facility for ‘Indian Citizens’ abroad’ to be able to purchase Indian Postal Order electronically by paying RTI Fee on-line through e-Post Office Portal of the DOP.

  • 7 October 2013:On his proposal to Secretaries of MEA, DoPT and Department of Posts (DOP), the above e-IPO facility was extended on 7 October 2013 for “Indian Citizens’ abroad “ to include all 176 Indian Missions abroad in the above list making it to total 2,492. Central Public Authorities including Government of the National Capital Territory of Delhi (GNCTD) and union territories (UTs).

  • 22 October 2013: Cmde Batra sent a proposal to the secretaries of DoPT and DOP to “open the existing e-IPO facilities for our citizens’ living in India too”, for payment of RTI fee / cost consisting of 2,492 central public authorities, including 176 Indian Missions abroad, GNCTD and UTs).Polite Reminders were sent on 24 December 2013 and again on 02 January 2014.

  • 8 January 2014: The DOP sent confirmation to DoPT about acceptance of the proposal and DOP’s approval to now “Open existing e-IPO facility for our ‘Citizens’ living in India”

  • 9 January 2014: In response, DoPT welcomed the DOP’s acceptance

  • Launching : 13 February 2013 at 11AM : At Dak Bhawan

Result
:
Appeal allowed / disposed of
FACTS
    The appellant is present.  The Public Authority is absent. 
2.   The appellant submitted that he is seeking the information through his RTI application
dt.13­4­2012, a copy of the affidavit of marital status submitted by his wife   Ms. Swati
Kalgaonkar, whom he had married on 24
th
 Dec.,2003 and  registered before the  SDM on
29­12­2003.     The   appellant   further   submitted   that   Ms.   Swati   Kalgaonkar   was   already
married to one Mr. Abdul Aziz before his marriage with her.   But she submitted a false
affidavit   to   the   SDM   that   she   was   not   married.     The   appellant   has   shown   to   the
Commission, a copy of the certificate of marriage of Ms.Swati Kalgaonkar with Mr. Abdul
Aziz.  Subsequently, Ms. Swati Kalgaonkar obtained an ex­parte decree of divorce with the
appellant, from a court in USA.  After this divorce with the appellant, Ms.Swati Kalgaonkar
married another man,  Mr. Sachin Brahmi, which was also dissolved because she did not
disclose information about her previous marriages.  
3.    The appellant also submitted that the above affidavit is required in connection with the
criminal cases filed by Ms.Swati Kalgaonkar accusing him and his family members under
section 498A IPC.  The affidavit is the key document which would prove his innocence in
the criminal case.  
4.      The PIO/SDM(NW) replied to the appellant by his letter dated 21
st
 May, 2012 stating
that no records for the year 2003 are presently available in his office.  But  the FAA by his
order dated 5­7­2012 did not agree with the PIO and directed him to get the concerned file
located and provide the required documents to the appellant and furnish the reply to the
appellant within 15 days.     In spite of this FAA Order,   the appellant could not get the
required information from the PIO so far.
5.   In view of the above, the Commission views this matter seriously as the PIO has failed
to comply with the orders of FAA, which amounts to obstructing the delivery of information,
thereby breaching the provisions of section 20 of the RTI Act, 2005.  The Commission also
observes   that   whenever   the   Public   Authority   makes   a   claim   that   the   relevant   file   is
missing, it is expected to give detailed explanation as to when did they discover that the
file was missing, what action they had taken to trace the same and what could be done, if
the file is not traced, what is the policy, procedure and regulatory mechanism available in
the office when the files are missing or claimed to have been missing, etc.  In the absence
of detailed explanation, the Commission cannot accept the reply of PIO given in a casual
manner, amounting to denial of information under RTI Act, as nowhere in the Act, such a
defence  is available  to  the  Public  Authority.   Claiming  that a particular file is  missing,
establishes the fact that the file was with them, till it was found missing or mis­placed or
deliberately removed.   Hence, that information would fall in the category of information
held by the Public Authority and thus it is the responsibility of the Public Authority to share
that information with the appellant. 
6.   The Commission, therefore, directs the respondent authority as under:­
(a)
To show cause why penalty cannot be imposed on the PIO for obstructing the
delivery of information;   his explanation should reach the commission within 3 weeks
from the date of receipt of this order
(b)
To institute an internal enquiry immediately and take necessary action against
the persons found involved in the missing of the file;
(c)
To comply with the order dated 5­7­2012 of the FAA within one month. 
7. The Commission also recommends to the Secretary, Department of Revenue, Government
of NCT Delhi, for immediate enquiry into this matter involving the  obstruction of furnishing the
information to the appellant, as the said information is highly relevant for his life and liberty.
The Commission advises the Secretary, Deptt. Of Revenue, GNCTD to direct the concerned
officer to trace the information and furnish the same to the appellant.  A copy of this order shall
be given to the Secretary, Deptt. Of Revenue, GNCTD for information and necessary action. 
8.   The Commission ordered accordingly.

RTI- Pol parties given Govt houses at throwaway rent

RTI- Pol parties given Govt houses at throwaway rent

Information provided by the Estate Department, Uttar Pradesh to my wife, RTI activist Nutan Thakur shows that the State government has allotted government houses to various political parties at almost throwaway rents.

As per the information, the Congress Office at 7, Mal Avenue has a per month rent, including water charges, of Rs. 2428. The Samajwadi Party office at 19A Vikramaditya Marg pays a monthly rent of Rs. 2425 while the Samajwadi Yuvajan Sabha office at 6A Lal Bahadur Shastri Marg pays rent of Rs. 2525 per month.

The Janata Dal office at 38D Major banks Road pays a monthly rent of Rs. 2026, the BJP office at Vidhan Sabha Marg pays a monthly rent of Rs. 4849, the Lok Dal office at 9B Triloki Nath Road pays Rs. 2046 and the CPI(M) office at Vidhan Sabha Marg pays a monthly rent of Rs. 2008.

The Loktantrik Congress occupies an office near Vidhan Sabha paying a monthly rent of Rs. 2425, despite the Estate department having cancelled its allotment.

As against these abysmally low rents, even a small 2 Bed-room apartment in these prime locations in Lucknow has a rent not less than Rs. 10-15 thousand per month while a small independent house of 2000 square feet has a rent more than one lakh per month.

Interesting information, isn't it? Ur comments please?

Serious complaints against Sahara India

Serious complaints against Sahara India

I, along with Nutan have demanded enquiry as regards money-collection scheme of Sahara India through Sahara Q shop and Sahara Credit society.

In the complaint to Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI) along with the Corporate Affairs Ministry, we have said that it is being widely alleged that along with Sahara Q shop scheme, Sahara India is collecting public money through a new entity, Sahara Credit cooperative society, having variety of schemes like Sahara E shine, Sahara A Select, Sahara Minor, Sahara M Benefit etc.

As per the complaint, this society is registered with the Ministry of Agriculture, Government of India and is collecting money against the rule of law as regards collection of public money. Thus just like what the Supreme Court said in its order as regards Sahara India Real Estate Corporation Limited (SIRECL) and Sahara Housing Investment Corporation Limited (SHICL), these money collection in Sahara Q shop and Sahara credit society seem to come within the definition of “securities” as defined under Section 2(h) of Securities Contracts (Regulation) Act, 1956 where Sahara India seems to be contravening the provisions of Sections 56, 73, 117A, 117B and 117C of the Companies Act along with the various clauses of the Securities and Exchange Board of India (Disclosure and Investor Protection) Guidelines, 2000 and the Securities and Exchange Board of India (Issue of Capital and Disclosure Requirements) Regulations, 2009.

We have said that we had previously sent their complaint on 02 January but no action has been taken so far and if these complaints are not enquired within time, it might prove extremely detrimental to interest of the helpless investors.

Hope u agree to our complaints

RTI query from 'activist' CM Kejriwal's office goes unanswered

RTI query from 'activist' CM Kejriwal's office goes unanswered


LUCKNOW: An RTI application seeking information from the Delhi chief minister's office generated no reply except that the said application has been transferred to the department concerned.

If RTI reply to activist Sanjay Sharma is to be believed, Arvind Kejriwal's claims on inquiries initiated by his short lived government in matters related to previous governments, cabinet approval of Delhi government's decision to grant 50% waiver on pending electricity bills and tabling of Jan Lokpal Bill in Delhi assembly could not generate even a single piece of document in chief minister's office.



  Sharma had sought department wise information of inquiries initiated by present government in matters related to irregularities of previous governments.

He had also asked for certified copies of all documents including note sheets contained in files related to cabinet approval of Delhi government's decision to grant 50% waiver on pending electricity bills of consumers, besides other information on February 13.

Delhi Police 'refuse' info on action taken in Justice Ganguly case

Delhi Police have declined to share information about any action taken against former Supreme Court judge Justice A K Ganguly in an alleged sexual harassment case of a law intern, Lucknow based RTI activist Urvashi Sharma said.

Sharma had sought information under the Right to Information Act from Delhi Police about action taken against Justice Ganguly. She sought to know if there was any provision that barred police from taking cognisance of the matter in the way Goa Police had done in the Tarun Tejpal case.

Sharma said that police in their reply said there was no such provision that..................read full deccan herald story at

Study report on status of RTI in UP government

Study report on status of RTI in UP government

While section 4 of the RTI Act says that every public authority shall maintain all its records duly catalogued and indexed and ensure that they get computerized so that all important details related to these public authorities get published within 120 days of enactment of this Act, the ground realities seem to be quite contrary to this mandate.

These facts were brought through a study conducted by me and wife Nutan.

We two studied the status of RTI in 81 Departments of the UP Government mentioned at the Home page of the website of Uttar Pradesh government (http://upgov.nic.in/allsites. asp), particularly as regards the mandatory information that needs to be provided under section 4(1)(b). The study found that almost none of them have provided the rules, regulations, instructions, manuals and records, held by them for discharging its functions in the electronic form.

It was also found that many of these information are quite old. Thus names of Nasimuddin Siddique in Cane development, Narayan Singh in Horticulture, Lalji Verma in Parliamentary Affairs and J N Rai in Handloom department remain on official records, while they left the office as way back as March 2012. Similarly, the names of such long retired officers like R K Sharma in the Horticulture, Sri Krishna in Handloom and S C Gupta in the IT Department is written.

Names of the PIOs and Appellate Authority of many departments are outdated while in many cases only the names and no other necessary details have been provided. Similarly in most cases, the years of the Budget presented on website has not been specified while in many other cases, the Budget of year as early as 2008-09 or 2009-10 have been provided.

Departments like Basic Education, Coordination, Culture, Finance, Fisheries, Infrastructure Development etc have provided almost negligible information. Samagra Gram Vikas, Small Scale Industries and Export Promotion Departments do not even mention about the RTI Act while Revenue and Vidhai departments have links to the RTI section but these links are not operational. The Governor office has information only in English while the Chief Minister office has limited information provided under RTI Act.

Yes, there seems to be an imminent need to pursue the matter to bring it to its logical end.
