DNA SPECIAL: Who signed Independence, partition docs? No clue 13.8.2018 DNA: Wide Angle
Who granted us freedom and what are the related documents? Did Mahatma Gandhi, Jawaharlal Nehru or Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel sign any papers? Is there any pact between Indian and Pakistan that documents the Independence and Partition of India? How was the power or sovereignty transferred from the British Queen to India? One would think that the government would have sound answers to these pertinent queries and one would be resoundingly wrong. In a shocking response to an RTI query by activist Madan Lal Narula, a resident of Ferozepur Punjab, the government's reply was: No clue. "There are no such documents are available with their office pertaining to partition of India on 14th and 15th of August 1947." Earlier this year, Syed Farid Ahmed, Assistant Director at National Archives of India (NAI), requested Ministry of External Affairs, Prime Minister's Office and Ministry of Home Affairs to provide the details of documents related to the Independence and partition. Further, in a letter to Narula, Ahmed ...

Gujarat man uses RTI to get refund of GST charged on earlier RTI plea! 12.8.2018 DNA: Popular News
Death and taxes might be the only certainty in the world, but not in Gujarat. A state body charged Goods and Services Tax (GST) on Right to Information queries, only to refund it later when the applicants filed another RTI query to ask why! Junagadh resident Haresh Chauhan, 50, had filed an RTI plea with the Gujarat Energy Transmission Corporation Limited (Getco) on May 22 to seek details of his alleged dismissal from a contract with the utility. He was stumped when he realised he had been charged GST of Rs 23 on his plea. "I did not want my application to be rejected, so I paid up, but on June 30, I filed another RTI to find out under what rule the GST had been charged on my first plea," Chauhan said. "I got Getco's reply on August 8, in which they told me that the GST on my RTI was being refunded due to changes in rules. Rs 23 was credited to my account through an online transfer," he said. Chauhan showed DNA the receipt for the GST charge as well as Getco's response that he would get a refund. Chauhan ...

Gujarat: Data Bill will make info out of reach for laymen 8.8.2018 DNA: Recent Columns
Civil society organisations have warned that the newly proposed data protection Bill may make public data even more inaccessible to common man. At a discussion held in the city, Pankti Jog, an RTI activist said the Bill allows for data to be given to organisations that needed it for research. "It stays mum on how do we determine how this data given to research organisations will be used. This means corporates will have access to data about demography and more for marketing purpose but at the same time a person who seeks information under RTI may be denied it on the pretext of data and privacy," said Jog. She said the provisions of the data protection Bill also proposed to punish Public Information Officers (PIOs) if the information they give is used to harass or abuse someone. "This would practically mean no public information officer will bother to give any data claiming that it has the potential to be misused," Jog said. She said at present it is difficult to get information even under RTI as the ...
