CBI has started publishing FIRs on its website, a step which comes in compliance with the Supreme Court order directing every police force to publish FIR records within 24 hours of registration. The agency, which had been citing exemption from RTI Act, whenever asked to provide FIRs of the case, has now started voluntarily putting these records on its website.

BMC pulls RTI down, puts junior officials on task 28.11.2016 DNA: Top News
The indifference on the part of the government servants may soon sound the death knell for the Right to Information (RTI) Act in Maharashtra, the very state where the RTI movement took roots. The RTI users, who have long been complaining about the delay in receiving information, now allege that the replies they are finally receiving are from junior-level officers and lacks in seriousness. Latest in case is the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC), which is giving Mumbaikars a plethora of reasons to file Right to Information petitions (RTIs) but finds it convenient to pass on the queries to junior officials. RTI activists claim that the BMC action of putting junior officials on the job of Public Information Officers in most of its departments is in violation of the spirit of the RTI Act as it leads to poor quality of replies. The BMC, in the past ten years, has released a number of circulars on dropping the designation of the Public Information Officers (PIOs) and the Appellate officers (the first ...

More BEST drivers break traffic rules, penalised 28.11.2016 DNA: Urban Tales
BEST bus drivers who were seen as ideal drivers earlier have lately been as impatient on roads as other motorists whose traffic offences have increased in the last three years. As per an RTI reply, the number of BEST bus drivers penalised for traffic related offences have increased in the last three years as compared to others like truck drivers, taxi drivers and auto-rickshaw drivers. The only segment that saw a similar increase in in traffic offences were the riders of two-wheelers. It jumped from 18 BEST drivers being penalised in 2014 to 47 in 2015 and already 75 as of September 2016. The traffic police, however, seemed to be taking a high ground when it came to categorising offences of their own. In another query on traffic offences like policemen, Regional Transport Officers or traffic police officials, the reply stated that offences are not categorised on the basis of a person’s profession. The details were sought for offences like jumping signal, rash driving, lane cutting, using cell phone while ...
