Power of RTI – Special Audit of Jalgaon Municipal Corporation (JMC)

Posted by rtiact2005 on July 18, 2006

Due to several ongoing protests, PILs in court & finally the below RTI app (final nail in the coffin !), govt. has agreed to conduct a special audit of the JMC for the Gharkul scam. You may recall that this scam was blown by whistleblower, Shri Praveen Gedam (IAS officer) who registered an FIR against more than 90 corporators who are accused in this scam. Not surprisingly, he was transferred within 9 months from the post of Commissioner, JMC and posted as CEO, ZP, Latur.

The reply to this RTI app dated 11th July, 2006 is awaited, but action has been taken !

Kudos to RTI !

    Where is Whistleblowers’ Protection in India?
    Seeking Information under RTI led to termination of service

    On 28th December 2006 I had submitted an RTI application to CBSE Regional Office Panchkula to seek certain details on The Lawrence School Sanawar which is permanently affiliated to this Board. On the 5th day of my application, the School Headmaster terminated my services, with immediate effect. He got so scared from the information I had sought that he gave me three months salary in advance in lieu of notice period. CBSE-PIO too denied the information. The case was listed for hearing in the office of the CIC on 3rd of January 2008. Decision is awaited.
