ORDER

The complainant had addressed a RTI request dated 3.9.2010 to the PIO/B.A.M. Khalsa College, Garhshankar, District Hoshiarpur. He received a reply vide Principal’s No. 1844 dated 31.1.2011 that Shri Sansar Chand is an employee of the management of college under uncovered scheme and he is being paid salary by the Managing Committee from its own resources. It was, therefore, conveyed that information pertaining to Shri Sansar Chand would not fall within the ambit of Right to Information Act, 2005.

2. Aggrieved, the complainant moved the State Information Commission, Punjab and notice was issued to the respondent, which has not been returned by the postal authority un-served. However, the respondent has failed to file any written reply or appear today at the time of hearing. The complainant submits that information has still not been given to him. The plea of the complainant is that the argument of the principal in denying the information is erroneous as the college and the management are one legal entity. The college is receiving grant-in-aid from the Government. Therefore, the entire institution of BAM Khalsa College, Garhshankar falls within the ambit of Right to Information Act, 2005. Distinction drawn by the principal between the employees covered under the Grant-in-Aid scheme and those not covered under the grant-in-aid scheme is erroneous and has no relevance so far as the Right to Information Act, 2005 is concerned.

3. I have heard the complainant. Issue notice to the PIO/BAM Khalsa College, Garhshankar to show cause why information has not been furnished to the complainant within 30 days and why proceeding under Section 20 of the Right to Information Act should be initiated for imposition of penalty as also for award of compensation.

BABBAR AKALI MEMORIAL KHALSA COLLEGE GARHSHANKAR Vs STATE OF PUNJAB and OTHERS Civil Writ Petition 7626 of 2009

IN THE HIGH COURT OF PUNJAB and HARYANA, CHANDIGARH

Date of Decision: May 20, 2009

Babbar Akali Memorial Khalsa College, Garshankar, District Hoshiarpur ….PETITIONER(S)
VERSUS
State of Punjab and Others .....RESPONDENT(S)

CORAM:
HON'BLE MR. JUSTICE AJAI LAMBA

PRESENT: -
Mr. Sameer Sachdeva, Advocate, for the petitioner.

AJAI LAMBA, J (Oral)
The prayer made in this civil writ petition filed under Article 226/227 of the Constitution of India is for issuance of a writ in the nature of mandamus directing the respondents to comply with the directions given by Division Bench of this Court while dealing with Civil Writ Petition No.14340 of 2006 titled ‘Arya College, Ludhiana Vs. State of Punjab and Others’, decided on 18.12.2007.

It has been brought out that the petitioner is helping the State to achieve its welfare policies. The State of Punjab implemented a scheme known as `95% Deficit Grant in Aid Scheme’for granting financial assistance to non government aided colleges. The State Government took a conscious decision to provide financial assistance to private aided colleges to enable these colleges to pay the scales recommended by the UGC so as to maintain minimum standards in higher education on the basis of sanctioned strength of teaching and non teaching employees. Because the respondents are not
releasing the admissible grant in aid, the petitioner is unable to pay the teaching and non teaching staff which seriously hampers the working of the Institution.

Issue notice of motion.

Mr. Anil Sharma, Senior Deputy Advocate General, Punjab, on the asking of the
Court, accepts notice. Copy of the petition has been handed over.

Heard.
Learned counsel for the respondents has not been able to dispute that grant in aid is
required to be released in terms of the judgment relied upon on behalf of the petitioner.

I have considered the issue. The Division Bench in the case of Arya College, Ludhiana (supra), issued directions in the following terms:-

Accordingly, we direct the State to meet its liability as per its declared scheme within three months from today.

The State will be at liberty to rely upon the record already available or to have access to such other record of the petitioner-college as, may be necessary, but on this account, the State will not avoid its liability. We make it clear that Secretary, Higher Education, Punjab will be held personally liable in case of default in meeting the liability.

This Court has considered the very issue while dealing with Civil Writ Petition No.4464 of 2009 titled ‘BLM Girls College, Arya Samaj, Nawanshahr vs. State of Punjab and Others’, decided on 21.3.2009 and Civil Writ Petition No.5393 of 2008, titled ‘Ramgaria College of Education, Phagwara vs. State of Punjab and Others’, decided on 24.4.2008, in which also the respondent-State has been directed to release the grant in aid.

In Civil Writ Petition No.3191 of 2007 titled `The Managing Committee, Guru Gobind Singh College, Saghera, Barnala, District Sangrur vs. State of Punjab and Another’ decided on 19.2.2008, similar view has been taken and direction was issued to the respondents to release grant in aid. Special Leave Petition was filed by the State of Punjab, the same being SLP No.15798 of 2008 which was dismissed on 8.12.2008.

Considering the directions issued by this Court in various cases as noticed above, and in the facts and circumstances of this case, it is directed that the respondents shall pay 85% of the grant-in-aid due to the petitioner within a period of 4 months after clearance of objections by the petitioner. So far as balance 15% of the amount of grant-in-aid due is concerned, the petitioner may submit separate representation to the respondents.

Petition is allowed in the above terms.
