Early Times Report

Srinagar, Nov 21: The Chief Information Commissioner (CIC) has directed Deputy Commissioner (DC) Budgam to streamline the process of RTI Act by training officers and creating RTI cells in district especially in Charar-i-Sharief tehsil. The order was issued after an appeal was filed before State Information Commission (SIC) over alleged mismanagement of revenue records in the tehsil and not revealing information to an information seeker about land transfers made under Roshini Act. Details available with Early Times reveal that one Shah Farooq S/o Ghulam Hassan Shah R/o Charar-i-Sharief Budgam filed the 2nd appeal before the State Information Commission (SIC) against the PIO/Tehsildar Charar-i-Sharief and Deputy Commissioner Budgam (First Appellate Authority -FAA) on 27.07.2017. The appellant alleged that he filed an application under the J&K RTI Act 2009 before the PIO/Tehsildar Charar-i-Sharief on 24.05.2017 and that the PIO failed to provide him the information. Thereafter, he filed the First Appeal before the FAA/Dy. Commissioner, Budgam and the FAA without providing him an opportunity of being heard passed an order dated 11.07.2017. The appellant has alleged that the FAA has passed the order in haste without application of mind and has ignored the relief sought. The appellant has requested the SIC to direct the concerned PIO/Tehsildar Charar-i-Sharief to now provide him the information sought free of cost as envisaged under the RTI Act. As per the records of the 2nd appeal, the appellant has sought the following information from the PIO/Tehsidlar Charar-i-Sharief: Attested copies of fresh Inthikhab-i-Jamabandi along with copies of Mutation which have been attested by the competent authority on the recommendations and sanction issued by District authorities under Roshni Act for town Chrar-iSharief 2. Details of deposition of fees deposited by the persons in whose favour landed property has been allotted and transferred by virtue of mutations.
The CIC observed that the appellant has sought information/attested copies of Revenue extracts from the PIO using the RTI route. On the other hand, the PIO has informed the appellant to deposit the charges for the copies of the Revenue extract as prescribed under the Land Revenue Act and Rules. The Tehsildar/ PIO has acted correctly. The appellant cannot bypass the prescribed procedure laid down by the Revenue Department in land Revenue Act and the Rules for getting the Revenue extracts by adopting the RTI route.
The Dy. Commissioner, Budgam as Head of the Public Authority is also directed to streamline the working of the RTI Cell of Tehsil Office, Charar-i-Sharief and for that he is advised to undertake a review of the handling of RTI applications by the office and of the instant RTI application which resulted in the 2nd appeal Sh. Shah Farooq V/s PIO/Tehsildar, Charar-i-Sharief before the SIC, and in respect of which the appellant has made certain allegations. With these directions, the 2nd appeal filed before the SIC is disposed of."
