ii) CPIO Air HQ Reply vide No Air HQ/23401/204/4/17049/E/PS dated 12th June 2019
Sir, I’m disappointed with the reply of CPIO Air HQ. I hereby submit first appeal under Section 19 of RTI Act, 2005.
- Details of appellant: Name: Prabhu Dandriyal,
Address: 21 – Sunderwala, Raipur Dehradun, Uttarakhand, Pin – 248001

Address Room No. 160, Dte of PS, Air HQ (VB), Rafi Marg, New Delhi 110106
- Facts leading to appeal:
An application under Section 6(1) of RTI Act 2005 dated 3 May 2019 was submitted to CPIO Air Hq sought information on IACCS project executed by costing approx 7900 Cr as new series posted in various media regarding scam in IACCS project. Being a senior citizen and tax payer I have request for some facts which are not in nature of any strategic information. It is hard to believe that CPIO not denial nor gave requested information judiciously, send reply without application of mind. Copy of RTI application is attached as Enclosure-1.
2. Particulars of Decision/Order of CPIO against which appeal:-
Request information in Para 3 is not provide by CPIO Air Hq and mentioned – not held with this Public Authority, the IACCS directorate in same building and as per RTI act CPIO has to transfer under section 6 (3) of the RTI Act 2005 to concern CPIO of Air Hq who is responsible for IACCS Directorate.
Request information in Para 4 is not provide by CPIO Air Hq quoted that “not held with this Public Authority”, But CPIO has to transfer under section 6 (3) of the RTI Act 2005 to concern CPIO of Air Hq who is responsible for IACCS Directorate
Request information in Para 7 the CPIO, Air Hq not even denied or mention that information is not available with him, just ignored. Here a big question arise that the vision of RTI Act 2005 is to restrict the corrupt practices prevailing in the system should be checked by citizen of India. The CPIO act clearly shows that he want protect these corrupt practices running in Air force, because in Para 8 also CPIO even not mention any word just ignored the request of information.
The act of CPIO to ignore the request of Para 7 & 8 shows that CPIO, Air Hq does not believe the constitutional provision of India. The request of information from common citizen is nothing to CPIO, but CPIO want to save culprits..
3. Facts & Grounds leading to appeal:-
the information requested are purely related to corruption and for to take corrective measures to restrict prevailing corruption in defence sector which is very highly dangerous to our national security. Compromising with quality and quantity and encouraging the false documents in procurement and execution in such important project is not anyway appreciable by common country man.
Information not providing vide Para 7 & 8 itself prove that official sitting on seat are not thinking of our future Air Force officials who will going to work their duties in IAACS project centers, basically they are playing with the life of children may be some present Air Force official’s sons or daughters who wishes to join Air Force like their father.
The CVO reports shows that Air force deputed in these palaces not allowed the senior vigilance officer to visit site and other way they allowed to any tom dick harry of L&T subletting contractor to roam around. Secondly in IACCS Directorate are co-operting BEL corrupt offices in big way.
4, Prayer /relief sought for:-
Information sought vides RTI Application dated 03.05. 2019 by appellant has been not provided properly it is incomplete information given by CPIO, Air Hq. Therefore, appellant kindly prays to FAA, Air Hq to allow this appeal and issue instructions/orders to CPIO, Air HQ to provide the information sought as seek by appellant vide his RTI Application dated 03 05 2019. Hope FAA will prove that FAA with “Nabha Sprsham Deeptam” not with corrupt officials who are busy with minting money and compromising with national security and also playing with life of our future Air Force aspirants.
I hereby state that the information and particulars given above are true to the best of my knowledge and belief.
