RTI reply reveals BMC receives 63 complaints about names missing on voter list 29.3.2017 DNA: India
The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) in a reply to an RTI application stated that they received 63 written complaints with respect to missing names in the voter list. Soon after the BMC elections, the Election Commission had stated that they deleted approximately 11 lakh names from the voter list to ensure that percentage of voter turnout is better reflected. There were 91.80 lakh voters this time around as compared to 102.86 lakh voters that existed in 2012. Post election, a number of people had complained about their names being  missing. Anil Galgali, who had put the application to the public information officer (PIO) of the election department in the BMC, was told that for all the names missing, only 63 written complaints were received.

MCI obtains stay against disclosure of info on Desai 28.3.2017 Deccan Herald - National
The Medical Council of India has obtained a stay from the Delhi High Court against a CIC ruling on the disclosure of records pertaining to its tainted former president Ketan Desai. The top medical education regulator received the stay on March 22 on the ground that petitioner seeking the information under the RTI Act is a US-citizen. The MCI also argued that since the information sought is spread over 2,800 files, it was not possible for the council to provide the information in the format as sought by the petitioner Kunal Saha, an Indian origin doctor settled in the USA. The Central Information Commission (CIC) in February directed the MCI to disclose information under the Right to Information Act on the legal proceedings against Desai, who is facing two cases on corruption and bribery charges. The transparency panel gave its ruling after hearing the lawyers from both sides. The MCI's counsels argued that neither Saha nor the non-governmental organisation (President for Better Treatment) he created are ...
