Hon'ble Sri ML Sharma in a path breaking decision over ruled both CPIO and First Appellate Auth Canteen Stores Department Adelphi, Mumbai GOI MoD ordered t on 27 Aug 2012 to provide the appellant information sought on 28 Jan 2011.on registration numbers issued to all URCs being run by the Regular Military Units as well as by the Non-Regular Military Establishments as per para 6 of Army Order 19/2003. The CPIO sought exemption under Section 8(1)j of the RTI Act 2005. The First Appellate Auth went a step further invoked an ION (Inter office order ) of the JAG Br of Army to claim that URCs are not under RTI Act 2005.
Hon'ble Sri ML Sharma was told during hearing on 27 Aug 2012 that Info was asked was always available and hence they are now ready to provide the details now to the appellant. They were not punished or penalised due to magnanimity of the concerned IC.Further the order dated 27 Aug 2012 came with a rider. They were to disclose the numbers of URCs thus registered and need not disclose the location of the URCs though never asked for. The appeallant asked for numbers of deepndency on each registered URCs being run by Non -Regular Military Est of the Defe as well Offence sorry Home Ministry which includes the Defence Audit Departments who are supposedly mandated to audit and question irrationality of the decision taken bleeding the exchequers.Canteen Stores department is one such white elephant where Govt of the Day spent crores only to build up crores of profit transferred onto the non-public cum private Funds of the military as well as department of Def as well as Offence Sorry Home establishments.
The CPIO CSD is unfazed. No info has since been provided against that order order of Hon'ble Sri ML Sharma, IC CIC on 27 Aug 2012. My mails both to Sri KL Das Dy Registrar at IC (LS),CIC and GM CSD are not even acknowledged.
What should be my next course of action?
