CIC directed for complimentary passes for hockey matches being put in public domain

Nov 09, 2018 : Dtf.in 
The excerpts from the Hon’ble Central Information Commission’s Decision dated 08.11.2018 on the Second Appeal filed by Shri Subhash Chandra Agrawal, are given below:- 
“14.  …. the Commission directs the respondent authority to put in public domain, every time when they permit the complimentary passes for the hockey matches, in the interest of transparency and prevention of corruption along with detailed break up of distribution of complementary passes. The people have a right to know for each match how many complimentaries are given, and whether anybody is making any money over distribution of those complimentary passes. The Commission feels that the HI has to give the break up and other details of the complimentary passes for each sponsorer in each match also. …
The Commission directs the respondent authority to provide complete and revised information pertaining to point no. 3 of RTI application and further directs the CPIO, Ministry of Law and Justice, Department of Legal Affairs to provide complete and revised information pertaining to rules/norms relating the fee to be paid by the public authority to their counsel, to the Appellant .…”

More: The excerpts from the Hon’ble Central Information Commission’s Decision dated 02.11.2018 are as under:-

  1. ….. “The Commission invoking its authority under Section 19(8) requires the RBI to review, revise and reform their section 4(1)(b) disclosures in tune with the RTI Act, as soon as possible but not later than 45 days. The Commission directs the CPIOs of the RBI, the PMO and office of the Finance Minister to explain the action taken on the alerting letter written by Former Governor of RBI Raghuram Rajan on February 5, 2015, before November 16, 2018.
  2. The Commission directs Mr. Panigrahy to file a compliance report along with proof that RBI has supplied the information to PP Kapoor and placed the list of defaulters on their official website as per orders of CIC as confirmed by the Supreme Court in Jayantilal case, within five days, failing which the Commission shall initiate penal proceedings against him.
  3. The Commission feels that there is no match between what RBI Governor and Deputy Governor say and their website regarding their RTI policy, and great secrecy of vigilance reports and inspection reports is being maintained with impunity in spite of Supreme Court confirming the orders of CIC in Jayantilal case. However the Commission considers that it does not serve any purpose in punishing the CPIO for this defiance, because he acts under the instructions of the top authorities. The Commission has no alternative except to hold the Governor Mr Urjit R Patel and other officers of top management of this esteemed institution for dis-hounoring the judgment and directions of Supreme Court. The Commission considers the Governor as deemed PIO responsible for non-disclosure and defiance of SC orders and CIC orders and directs him to show cause why maximum penalty should not be imposed on him for these reasons, before November 16, 2018. The Commission, considering that it is the duty and function of the Commission as a whole to secure compliance of its orders, directs the concerned administrative officers of the Central Information Commission to explore possibilities enforcing the orders of learned Information Commissioner Shailesh Gandhi taken in appeal up to Supreme Court by the RBI, who lost all their cases and contentions, taking appropriate legal measures including the action for contempt of Supreme Court against the top management of the RBI. If the banking regulatory like RBI will not honour the Constitutional Institutions directions, what will be the effect of Constitution on securing Rule of Law? The Commission recommends the RBI governor to remember once, at least one of the 3 lakh farmer dying in the field as he failed to sustain his crop or to sell his produce for appropriate price and hence could not pay of the debt before defying the transparency law and directions and discontinue the non-disclosure policy which will seriously harm of the economy of this nation, immediately.
  4. The Commission finds no merit in hiding the names of, details and action against willful defaulters of big bad loans worth hundreds of crores of rupees. The RBI shall disclose the bad debt details of defaulters worth more than 1000 crore at the beginning, of Rs 500 crore or less at later stage within five days and collect such information from the banks in due course to update their voluntary disclosures from time to time as a practice under Section 4(1)(b) of RTI Act. …..”

Differently-Abled Not To Be Deprived Of Benefits Of RTI Act: SC Directs Authorities To Explore Advanced Technology To Make Information Accessible To Them

Sep 30, 2018 : Dtf.in

Hon’ble Supreme Court, in its judgment dated 27.09.2018, has ruled as under:-

“… …. we are disposed to think that no further direction needs to be issued except granting liberty to the petitioner to submit a representation to the competent authority pointing out any other mode(s) available for getting information under the Act. If such a representation is submitted, the same shall be dealt not only with sympathy but also with concern and empathy. We say so as differently abled persons, which include visually impaired persons, should have the functional facility to receive such information as permissible under the Act. They should not be deprived of the benefit of such a utility. As indicated in the beginning, the information makes one empowered. Additionally, we think it appropriate to ask the authorities to explore any kind of advanced technology that has developed in the meantime so that other methods can be introduced. We are absolutely sure that if the petitioner would point out, the cognizance of the same shall be taken. We are also certain that the authority shall, with all sincerity and concern, explore further possibilities with the available on-line application/mechanism.”
