Had Nitish Kumar formed the Government on his own, he would have been a dictator.

Naveen Patnaik is dictator. Ask his ministers .

Anger against Javadekar unjustified

The anger of Navneeth Krishnan against Prakash Javadekar is unjustified and biased. He should be left in the company of Nilgais and monkeys for sometime to appreciate the plight of farmers and villagers. In the conflict between man and animal, the man will do whatever possible to survive. Culling of destructive animals is done all over the globe. Incidentally I am pure vegetarian and animal lover.

No officer is accountable

Apropos to the Nilkanth comments, MoEF&CC required complete change and reform. Whole Ministry is run by the IAS and the IFS who are on the deputation for a small period and the scientists/environmental engineers who are regular have no role and administrative power except supporting to the Secretaries. No officer is accountable in the MoEF&CC from top to bottom. Recall the Honorable Supreme Court direction, wherein it was said that State Pollution Control Board and CPCB should be headed by the professionals, but no directions are implemented so far. Same is the fate of forestry. States spent huge some on afforestation and other activities, but still our forest is degrading and productivity reducing. Its the time when Honorable PM should bring Professionals and Scientists in the main stream, otherwise the fate of Environment and Forests in the country will remain same or will further deteriorate.

DATE WITH RTI

Multiple RTI Applications seeking huge information

The applicant sought huge information pertaining to Income Tax offices. He also wanted to know the basis of conducting survey and search and the specific steps taken to stop tax evasion during the financial year 2013-14 etc. The PIO submitted that the appellant has filed as many as 30 appeals before the Central Information Commission seeking all and sundry information and despite heavy pressure they have made strenuous efforts to provide the information. He further stated that much of the information sought by the appellant is in the public domain and can be accessed by visiting the department's website www.incometaxindia.in. The appellant stated that he had lodged a TEP against a medical store in early 2015 and wants to know what action has been taken by the department. He further stated that he wants a copy of the scheme for payment of award to informants. He also requested for a note explaining the method adopted by the Income Tax Department for assessment and scrutiny. The PIO stated that he will supply the information as requested above by the appellant. The CIC observed that once a certain information is placed in the public domain accessible to the citizens either freely, or on payment of a predetermined price, that information cannot be said to be 'held' or 'under the control of' the public authority and, thus would cease to be an information accessible under the RTI Act. The Commission hoped the appellant will take a careful note of the above judicial observations and refrain from filing frivolous RTI applications in future


Comments

Whenever one is seeking information under the RTI Act, the RTI Application should be focused and specific. Asking for voluminous information through multiple applications may lead to a charge of abuse of the process of law.
