Why was not the conversion of old currency notes allowed till March 31, 2017 for Indians as assured by Prime Minister Narendra Modi in his speech on November 8 announcing demonetisation? The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) has refused to answer the question under the Right to Information (RTI) Act claiming the query does not come under the definition of "information" as per the transparency law. The Prime Minister in his speech on November 8, 2016, announcing demonetisation, had assured countrymen that they could convert the notes of Rs 1,000 and Rs 500 till March 31.

No rules laid down for missing mobiles 26.3.2017 DNA: Recent Columns
There are chances that if you file a complaint with the police about a missing item, for example, your mobile phone, the complaint may just remain as a record in their books. As per the police's own admission, there are no guidelines laid down as to what action the police is supposed to undertake when a complaint is filed about a missing item. The issue was brought to light when a reply was given by a Public Information Officer (PIO) to an RTI applicant and the State Information Commission (SIC). The commission, however, has directed the PIO to approach the police commissioner's office to get more clarity on the issue. DNA had earlier reported about SIC directing the police to provide details of the register that keeps track of missing items (mobile phones), police commissioner or DGP's letter on what the police is supposed to do when they receive such complaints, and the report that is prepared in such cases. The order was passed after the police failed to provide information to RTI applicant Mahendra ...

BDA appoints consultant to filter 'damaging' RTI queries 25.3.2017 deccanherald.com
That the Bangalore Development Authority (BDA) is not flush with money is known. It had to pledge some plots of land to return the initial deposits of applicants who did not get sites in Kempegowda Layout Phase 1. The BDA, however, is ready to spend some extra money to filter information to people under the Right to Information Act (RTI). It has appointed a retired official of the Karnataka Government Secretariat Training Institute as its RTI consultant on a contract basis. The post was created in August 2016 with the specific purpose of "advising" the agency in dealing with RTI applications. The BDA pays the consultant Rs 60,000 a month. RTI activists say that unlike in the past, the BDA has now been denying information swiftly without even going through the files. The appointment of the consultant came to the fore when many people found that the BDA had rejected their RTI applications citing random orders of the Supreme Court and the high court on RTI queries. "The BDA has several sections and each ...
