2000 central government organisations to accept online RTI applications

2000 central government organisations to accept online RTI applications

New Delhi: Around 2,000 Central government organisations will soon be accepting applications under the Right to Information (RTI) Act through online medium.

The move is based on the suggestion given by a group of secretaries before Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

The Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT) has started a massive exercise to train nodal officers of all such public authorities who have not yet started accepting the RTI pleas online.

In a stern directive, it has asked all the government departments to attend a workshop being organised by the DoPT in this regard  without fail. In case, the officers concerned fail to attend the workshop, a username will be created suo-motu and all these public authorities will be made live on the RTI portal.

As many as 690 public authorities have been aligned so far on the especially designed website www.rtionline.Gov.in  to enable online filing of the RTI applications.

The DoPT had during June and July this year conducted a workshop for 330 public authorities. Of these, 51 nodal officers did not attend the workshop.

Since all the public authorities (around 2,000) will have to be aligned in a time bound manner ( a target/timeline fixed and monitored at the highest level), DoPT is organising yet another training workshop as a special drive for those defaulted public authorities and nodal officers who did not attend the workshop

It requested that all nodal officers under 51 public authorities attend the workshop without fail on Tuesday, the DoPT said in the order.

It may be noted by all concerned that no further opportunity would be given to the nodal officers after this workshop, the order said.

In case the concerned nodal officer is unable to attend this training, the username will be created suo motu and the concerned public authority will be made live on the RTI online portal with effect from September 30, by DoPT, it said.

The RTI Act, 2005, enables a citizen to seek tome-bound reply on governance related matters. People can also make payment of RTI fee online.

On the occasion of completion of more than 10 years of implementation of the RTI Act, the Central Information Commission is going to hold annual convention in October, the DoPT said.

Increase in Retirement age to 65 for Doctors of OFB

Enhancement in the age of superannuation of Doctors of Ordnance Factory Board (Department of Defence Production, Ministry of Defence)

Dr. Jitendra Singh,
Minister of State, Government of India,
Ministry of Personnel, PG & Pension,
North Block, New Delhi 110001

Subject: Enhancement in the age of superannuation of Doctors of Ord Fy Board (Department of Defence Production, Min of Def).

Respected Sir,
With due regards, your attention is invited to the speech of Hon’ble Prime Minister of India Sri Narendra Modi which he delivered on 26th May, 2016 in Saharanpur (U.P.) in a rally to observe the second anniversary of his Government, which was as under:

There is a shortage of doctors. In government hospitals, their retirement is 60 years in some states, 62 in some others. If adequate number of medical institutes were there, then we would have more doctors and would not feel the shortage. It is difficult to make doctors in two years but poor families cannot be forced to live without doctors.
Therefore from Uttar Pradesh, I want to announce this to my countrymen that this week our government's Cabinet will take a decision within a week and the retirement age of our doctors, whether in states or Government of India, would be made 65 years instead of 60 or 62.

Honouring the promise of Prime Minister, the Department of Personnel & Training, MoP, PG & P, GOI issued Notification (GSR No. 567-E, Dated 31.05.2016) for amendment in FR 56 (bb) whereby the age of superannuation in respect of General Duty Medical Officers and Specialists included in Teaching, Non-Teaching and Public Health Sub-cadres of Centre Health Service has been enhanced to 65 yrs.

Considering the huge shortage of Specialists (75%) & GDMOs (25%) in Indian Ordnance & Ordnance Equipment Factories (Department of Defence Production, Min of Defence) this issue was brought to notice of Hon'ble Defence Minister, Shri Manohar Parrikar by this federation and requested him to take appropriate action to enhance the retirement age of IOFHS Cadre.

In turn Hon'ble Defence Minister assured for extension of coverage of FR 56(bb) in favour of IOFHS Cadre forthwith. Thereafter, in the month of August, 2016 MoD has sent a proposal to DoP&T for necessary approval / action and to expedite that the Secretary, Department of Defence Production also wrote a DO Letter to Secretary, DoP&T to expedite the matter but the file is moving from one Ministry / Department to another.

It is worth to mention here that Min of Railways, Home Affairs, Municipality Corporation of Delhi etc. have already enhanced the superannuation age of their Doctors and meanwhile Min of Health & Family Welfare has clarified vide F.No. Z.16024/11/2016-CHS.V Dated 30.08.2016 that Departments / Ministries may take decision, with the approval of their respective competent authorities on the enhancement of the age of superannuation of doctors.

Now the time has come for Bureaucratic System to respect, accept & adopt the Hon’ble Prime Minister's 3S Speed, Skill & Scale to resolve the issues of Government Employees.

Therefore, you are requested to issue necessary directives to the concerned authorities to extend the provisions of FR 56(bb) in respect of all the doctors of OFB so that the organization as well as the incumbents may also be benefitted with enhanced age of superannuation of 65 yrs with effect from 31.05.2016.

Thanking you.
Sincerely yours

Thereupon, for extension of coverage of FR 56(bb) in favour of IOFHS Cadre, in the month of August, 2016 MoD has sent a proposal to DoP&T for necessary approval / action and to expedite it, the Secretary, Department of Defence Production also wrote a ‘DO Letter’ to Secretary, DoP&T to expedite the matter but the file is moving from one Ministry / Department to another.

In such circumstances, being the competent authority of Min of Defence, you are requested to approve the proposal of enhancement of superannuation of doctors of OFB without obtaining the permission of DoP&T as the other Ministries like MHA, Railways etc. have already done.

Thanking you.

DO to PAs regarding RTIMIS workshop on 27.09.16 at CSOI

AND PENSIONS
NORTH BLOCK NEWDELHI 110001

D.O. NO.1/Misc.maters/2016-IR (Pt-II)
Dated: 20.09.2016
Dear Nodal Officer,
As you are aware that, one of the action points emerged out of the presentation made by group of secretaries before Hon'ble Prime Minister, is to expand Right to Information (RTI) Management Information System (MIS) web portal to cover all Public Authorities (PAs) under Central Government. Department of Personnel & training (DoPT) being the Nodal Agency for implementation of RTI Act, 2005 in India have been reiterating the importance and urgency of aligning Public Authorities with the DoPT's RTI Online Portal.
Since the inception of the portal, till date, 690 PAs have so far been aligned with this portal.

2. In this regard, DoPT took an initiative and conducted a series of training  workshops for each of the Nodal Officer (who is the focal point of the concerned Public Authority and who receives RTF applications/appeals and further distributes these to the concerned CPIOs/FAAs in the Organisation) under various Public Authorities, Ministry/Department wise during June July, 2016. This exercise was conducted for a month covering around 330 PAs under 10 Central Ministries/Department.

3. Out of 330 PAs invited for these training sessions, around 51 PAs/Nodal Officers neither did attend the workshops nor share their Nodal Officers details for creating Username and Password, a step required to be done before online alignment is made. Since, all the PAs (around 2000) will have to be aligned in a time bound manner (a target timeline fixed and monitored at the highest level), DoPT is organising yet another training workshop as a special drive for those defaulted PAs/Nodal Officers who did not attend the workshops conducted for them in June-July, 2016, as a last opportunity being provided to them.

4. It is therefore requested that all Nodal Officers under 51 PAs as per list attached to attend the workshop 'without fail' being organised by DoPT on 27th September, 2016 at CSOI, Vi nay Marg, New Delhi from 2:30 PM to 5:30PM.

5. Although this training schedule is primarily meant for the Nodal Officers only, it is suggested that in case there is only one or few CPIO and FAA each in any PA, they may also be asked to attend the training. However, in case of large no of CPIOs/FAAs under any PA, DoPT will organize separate training programmes for them upon receiving request from that PA.

6. The invited Nodal Officers may further note that they have to share mandatorily their details (i.e. Name, Designation, e-Mail 10 & Phone No.) for creation of user name and password by the Project Management Unit (PMU) members on the day of the training. After training of Nodal officers, the concerned PAs will be aligned with the Portal. The PMU will be providing all the necessary support to the PAs/Nodal Officers for their alignment with the portal. The PMU team is headed by:

Shri Piyush Kanal (Sr. Manager Associate/Head PMU)

7. It may be noted by all concerned that no further opportunity would be given to the Nodal Officers after this workshop. In case, the concerned Nodal Officer is unable to attend this training as per given schedule and fails to provide user name and password to the PMU team, the username will be created suo-muto and the concerned PAs will be made live on the RTI Online Portal w.e.f 30th September, 2016, by DoPT.
