Chandigarh, July 17
Officials in the Estate Office of the Chandigarh Administration continue to violate provisions of the Right to Information Act, 2005, blatantly.

The Act clearly says information has to be supplied within a month of receiving an application on a plain paper with the requisite fee at the designated counter.

The Act empowers the information seeker to get a penalty imposed on the information officer.

The Administration had designated the Central Assistant Public Information Officer and the Central Public Information Officer to provide information under the Act.

Irritated at the indifference of the officials concerned towards giving information, the Forum for Public Affairs had moved the appellate authority under Sections 19 and 20 of the Act.

According to the forum, information regarding any building violation at the Fun Republic, floor-wise information of office use, recreational use and public use, allowing of commercial activity in corridors, prescribed conversion charges and charges deposited with the Estate Office had been sought.

In a separate application, the forum had sought information on building violation notices under Sections 8, 20 and 15 from January, 2004, to December, 2005.

Mr Chander Mukhi of the forum said they had been denied the information.

Information regarding sensitive posts in the building branch, the enforcement wing and the Estate Office had also been sought earlier.
