1 Name of State: UTTAR PRADESH
2. Whether Rules have been framed? NO. Using Central RTI Act
If yes, whether they are available in the local language?   – do -.
If possible please send the link with the website. http://righttoinformation.gov.in/RTIAct/RTI-ActInHindi.pdf
3. Whether format has been specified for application and appeals? If yes, please try and send it. No.
4. Fees:

5. Any significant problem in the rules: No proactive declaration by most PAs in the State. Even names of CPIOs/ PIOs/APIOs and Appellant Authorities not available
6. Name and email address of CIC of State. Sh. M.A. Khan
How many other Information Commissioners are there. None
7. If any data is available on the following:
a) Number of RTI applications in State
if no numbers are available, please give your impression of whether RTI is being used very little/reasonably/very actively. Very little. Besides public, even employees of PA are ignorant of the Act. Those designated to work for RTI are very uncooperative, try to misguide you and do not answer applications for months. The answer recd is never complete. Only one or two points of the application are answered.
b) Awareness of State Govt. Officials. Poor.
c) If report of Information Commission as required under Section 25 is ready. No idea

Total number of appeals and complaints in which final orders passed
Total number of appeals and complaints pending disposal

October to December 2005

January 2006

February 2006….

Upto July 2006.

If this information is not available please file a RTI application with the PIO of the Information Commission.

9. Your grading of the decisions by the Information Commission:  Bad/Fair/good.  (If possible get the opinion of a few others) He has been appointed only recently and no news so far.

10. Three major problems in the implementation of the Act.
Ignorance of the majority of population, lack of govt. publicity, absence of proactive declarations.

11. If available, three success stories of use of RTI.
I do not know if you will call them success stories. They revolve around two third parties (Ansal Housing and Constuction Ltd. and Delhi Towers Ltd), who have been the main beneficiaries of GDA and Ghaziabad Fire Dept.’s patronage, due to which  all flat owners of their complex “Neel Padam Kunj” in Vaishali are suffering.
Everyone knows that there are several stages which every builder has to go through before his building is certified to be fit for living. The two main organizations are GDA and Fire Dept. Both have been very benevolent to these third parties and have given them all approvals without any problems (natrually for some consideration). To get to the truth we filed 2 applications with the Fire Dept (one replied) and about 5 (only two replied with delay) with GDA.
Results: As a result of our application to the PIO of Gzbd Fire Dept., for the first time in past 10 yrs (this building exists), the Fire Dept. has not given the builder the “Fitness Certificate” for its fire fighting readiness in the building. They raised 12 objections, against which the builder has so far taken action only on one (putting “Fire Exit” signs).

In response to our RTI applications to GDA, for the first time we have come to know from the sanctioned map of the complex that GDA gave that unlike all housing societies, we can not have a boundary wall on one of our complex (security threat to property and life), because the builder was sanctioned to construct a group housing society on one big plot and instead, divided the plot into two parts and built a housing complex on one and a commercial mall on another.
Secondly, the commercial club, advertised as part of the complex is an unauthorised construction on Green Belt area outside our complex, where even the trees are not planted as per norm. The GDA issued orders for its demolition, but after palm greasing by the third party have not been implemented.

Thus, therefore there is  a long way to go and follow up these applications and take action to punish the people who have wronged us.

12. Any other questions you feel we should add; please add them with answers

Even if receive multiple answers come  from any State, it will help to understand the position better.
