On questions asked by the appellant pertaining to guidelines and time frames for taking action, the appellant was told that Building Bye-laws governing MCD are a priced publication and may be purchased from the market.
Hence the appeal on both counts.
The case was heard on March 6, Although the MCD had offered to seek the information sought by the applicant from the DDA, the process prescribed by Sec 6 3 of the Right to Information Act, was that the MCD should have transferred the relevant part of the application to the DDA, with a copy of the forwarding letter to the applicant to enable him to pursue the matter with DDA.
It was not necessary for the applicant to apply for this information afresh. MCD admit that they had asked the appellant to purchase the building bye-laws from the market, since this is a priced publication.
Since the appellant was not present at the hearing it is not possible to verify that he has received the copy of the letter to the DDA stated to have been sent to him. However, MCD could have also given him the building bye-laws for which, the publication being priced, they could have charged him the cost as per procedure laid down in Sec 7 3 of the Act.
They may now do so. Let a copy of this decision be sent free of cost to the parties.JAGO GRAHAK JAGO (please click display images below, from your email window to view the images) Consumer Velocity @ NCH Toll Free No.: (The monthly newsletter from National Consumer Helpline, Project of Union Ministry of Consumer Affairs, Food and Public Distribution).
