Recruitment for Mughal Road Project: R&B, Chief Er conceals info
9/23/2017 11:00:24 PM
Early Times Report

Jammu, Sept 23: Both R&B Department and Chief Engineer for Mughal Road Project are concealing information sought under RTI Act regarding recruitment made for the project.
Advocate Monika Verma had filed an RTI application in March this year, seeking answer of queries. Astonishingly, even after a lapse of six months, the information sought has not been provided by the concerned Public Information Officer (PIO).
"What is the current status of employees of Mughal Road Project/whether they have been absorbed in R&B Department or agencies/societies/autonomous bodies etc. And which department is paying them salaries and other benefits and under which account head", reads the content of queries raised by Monika.
She had filed the RTI application on 27/03/2017, and as per stipulated time under the Act, the PIO has to provide the information within 30 days, that is, by April 26, 2017.
"But the PIO could not respect his/her mandate under the Act. Accordingly, I filed first appeal before First Appellant Authority (FAA), Public Works Department, Civil Secretariat on May 25, but the FAA too did not bother to provide the information", Advocate Monika said.
She said she received a letter from Deputy Secretary to Government in which she was asked to appear before FAA on June 8. "But being an advocate, I had engagement here too, so I requested to FFA through e-mail seeking postponement of the hearing," she said. "On my behalf, someone else appeared before FAA but the information was not provided to him", she added.
Paradoxically, the FAA could not reply on my request and nor provided the information, she said. "Finally, second appeal in this regard has been submitted to State Information Commission, and I expect that the commission will do justice with me", she said, asking that if the PIO and FAA can ignore an Advocate's plea, what can commoners expect from them.
