CONTENTS OF LETTER TO CHIEF ENGINEER ON 0906.2017
We have filed an RTI application to the Superintending Engineer, PCC, Ahmedabad for which they have directed to deposit the cost of the documents to be supplied which we have complied. Now we got a letter along with enclosures from the office of the Superintending Engineer, PCC, Ahmedabad duly signed by the EA to SE in a form routine official communication copy of which is enclosed herewith for your ready reference which is against the letter and spirit of the RTI Act, 2005 and guidelines issued by the nodal ministries. The application should have been dealt by a notified officer as Public Information Officer in that office. The letter directed me if there is any appeal it should be submitted to the Superintending Engineer, PCC, Ahmedabad himself which is highly irregular.
On perusal of the documents it is clearly evident that the documents are recreation on back date dispatch numbers for which we will be separately filing complaint before the competent authorities for enquiry including the RTI Commission for non-compliance of instructions issued in the matter from time to time including the Hon’ble RTI Commission.
Further it is stated that on receipt of the RTI application from me, the officers have started to initiate humiliating attitude towards our members by issuing memos etc. Since, the RTI application is filed by me the reasons for official harassment against our members is unwarranted and we presume that it is because of the directions from some quarters at higher level.
It is for your information and necessary action.
