To 23 April 2015 Hon’ble Shri Narendra Modi, Prime Minister, PMO, Room No 152 South Block , New Delhi-110011
SUBJECT:- Misuse of Public Money by making Temporary Duty for personal work or visit native place to meet family member by Dr. Vijay Veer, Director, DRL, DRDO, Tezpur.
The office of PCDA (R&D) is public authority under purview of RTI Act 2005 and this office is having own independent CPIO and First Appellate Authority. PCDA (R&D) is not an exempted organisation under section 24 of RTI Act 2005, despite the CPIO, PCDA (R&D) deliberately denying the information related to Establishment Matters of DRDO officials like tour details, LTC details, procurement related information etc just to cover up the corrupt practices of DRDO officials. The main objective of PCDA (R&D) should be to minimise the corruption and save the public money.
In my several RTI’s , CPIO, PCDA(R&D) either denied the information under section 24 of the RTI Act 2005 or transferred the RTI’s to DRDO under section 6(3) of RTI Act 2005, which is unethical practice to promote corruption and non-transparency in the Government System.
Therefore, RTI for CPIO, PCDA (R&D) through PMO with kind request to give order to PCDA (R&D) to follow RTI Act 2005 with true & proper sprit and provide information by strictly following the provisions of RTI Act 2005.
PMO may explore tour details of Dr. Vijay Veer from 01 March 2012 to 31 March 2015 to verify Director misusing official powers for personal gain.
