DRDO RTI cell doing propaganda that Honorable High Court declared DRDO 100% exempted organization from RTI Act-2005 and started giving denial to each and every RTI request without seeing the merit and facts that the request pertain to corruption. And best part of this now they are stop writing “except information pertaining to the allegations of corruption and human rights violations”
RTI cell including First appellate authority also cited the Delhi High Court Judgment passed in WP © 83/2014 DR. NEELAM BHALLA .. Petitioner Through: Mr. R. Sathish, Advocate. Versus UNION OF INDIA & ORS ..Respondents Through: Mr. Neeraj Chaudhari, Advocate for R-1 and 2.
In this judgment is nothing new every one clearly knows DRDO was an exempted organization under Section 24 of the Right to Information Act, 2005. In other words, the Act would apply to DRDO only to the extent of information pertaining to allegations of corruption and human rights violations.
In DR. NEELAM BHALLA case DR. NEELAM BHALLA prayer to honorable court that information supplied by then CPIO, DRDO Sh Bundella was incorrect and inaccurate and court says
“4. It is a matter of fact that Shri Bundela had provided inaccurate and incorrect information to the appellant but Shri Bundela’s contention that he had transmitted information as received by him from CPIO of RAC cannot be disregarded. It is important to bear in mind that Shri Bundela was not the holder of information. The holder of information was CPIO, RAC. Whatever information was W.P.(C) No. 83/2014 Page 1 of 4 forwarded to Shri Bundela by CPIO, RAC, he transmitted the same to the appellant.
6. Even so, before parting with this matter, I would like to caution Shri Bundela to exercise due diligence in responding to the RTI application in future.”
4. Having heard learned counsel for the petitioner, this Court is of the view that once the CIC has held that DRDO is an exempted organisation under Section 24 of RTI Act and the information sought does not pertain to corruption and/or human rights violation, it was not open to the CIC to carve out any further exemption.
But in whole judgment there is nothing new and not giving extra immunizing to DRDO from RTI act, if there is any extra facilitation in judgment than DRDO should quote specifically that.
- DRDO RTI cell also go through the judgment of CWP No. 12904 of 2009
In the High Court for the States of Punjab and Haryana at Chandigarh
HON’BLE MR. JUSTICE MEHINDER SINGH SULLAR
under Section 24(4) of the Act which envisaged that nothing contained in this Act shall apply to such intelligence and security organizations A combined reading of these provisions would reveal, only that information is exempted, which is directly effecting and co-related to the “Intelligence” and “Security” of that organization of the State and not otherwise.
The matters pertaining to recruitment/appointments and day to day administrative nature information, where it is also found that DRDO top officials did lot of irregularities. Therefore honorable defence minister approved CBI intervention against 10 top DRDO officials including 2 ex- DRDO chiefs one Dr V K Saraswat and other one Sh M Natrajan for their ugly acts.
It was establish facts till date all senior officials of DRDO who were fixed by CVC and CVO, MOD were exposed with the help of RTI’s only.
So DRDO officials are afraid of RTI’s if they are honest then why they worries from RTI’s . The Ex CPIO, DRDO Dr A K Tyagi who is facing charge sheet in corruption case was the big manipulator and protector of corrupt officials.
