Mrs Kamla versus SGGS Khalsa College Mahilpur (Hoshiarpur)

STATE INFORMATION COMMISSION, PUNJAB
SCO No. 84-85, Sector 17-C, CHANDIGARH.

Mrs. Kamla w/o Shri Jagdish Lal,
123/2, Pragati Enclave, Backside DAV College,
Chandigarh Road, Hoshiarpur.
-------------Complainant.
Vs.

The Public Information Officer
o/o Shri Guru Gobind Singh Khalsa College,
Mahilpur, District Hoshiarpur. ------------Respondent.

CC No. 201 of 2011

Present:-
Mrs. Kamla complainant in person.
Dr. Surjit Singh Randhawa, Principal-cum-PIO on behalf of the respondent.

ORDER:

The respondent places on record letter No.777 dated 24.8.2011. The plea of the respondent is that the college had supplied copies of 464 pages (Legal Size) of Attendance Register to the complainant and photocopies of these 464 pages were retained in the office of the College. The plea of the respondent is that since two sets of 464 pages were made, the complainant has been charged for a total number of 928 pages at large size paper rate. In addition the postal charges of Rs.116/- have been levied. The respondent has also calculated that one employee of the colleges spent three full days to trace out the record and Xerox the copies. Therefore, this cost should also be compensated.

2. The complainant had deposited Rs.2600/- and excess amount charged from the complainant by the respondent beyond what is provided in the Rules shall be refunded to the complainant. The respondent cannot charge any money towards the cost of employees said to have been deployed to make the copies, nor can he charge money for second set of 464 pages, which were retained as office copy by the respondent-college. Only cost of copies of 464 pages supplied to the complainant shall be charged at the rate specified in the Rules and the rest of the amount shall immediately be refunded to the complainant.

3. Earlier, the respondent had paid compensation awarded to the complainant vide order dated 30.5.2011. The complainant has also raised the issue of penalty under Section 20 of the Right to Information Act, 2005. In my view, this is not a fit case for imposition of penalty for the reason that a legal issue was involved whether posts not covered under grant-in-aid scheme would fall within the ambit of Act ibid? Whether information held by Management Council, which was pleaded to be an independent institution, is also to be supplied by the PIO-Principal of the College? These issues needed to be settled and have been adequately addressed in the earlier orders of the Commission. After the Commission had held that the PIO-cum-Principal is liable to furnish the information and the Right to Information Act, 2005 applies alike to all posts in a college, irrespective of whether a particular post is covered under the Grant-in-Aid scheme of the Government or not, the information was furnished by the respondent. Excess fee charged has been refunded as also a compensation amount of Rs.2000/- was paid to the complainant for the delay and inconvenience caused. I do not consider it a fit case for penalty.

4. It is also worth-noting that the complainant is seeking her personal information. She has not brought on record what public purpose, if any, would be served by disclosure of this information. Normally such information may be treated exempt under Section 8(i)j) of the Right to Information Act, 2005. Nevertheless, the management has furnished the information by diverting its manpower and resources. The quantum of information sought by the complainant consisted of nearly 500 pages. The Hon’ble Supreme Court of India in recent decision in Civil Appeal No.6454 of 2011 in Central Board of Secondary Education vs. Aditya decided on 9.8.2011 has observed that the Act should not be converted into a tool of oppression or intimidation. The Hon’ble Supreme Court observed that the nation does not want a scenario where 75% of the staff of public authorities spends 75% of time in collecting and furnishing of the information to the applicants, instead of discharging their regular duties. Threat of penalties and pressure should not lead to employees prioritizing “information furnishing” at the cost of their normal duties.

5. Therefore, I order the closure of this case.

ORDER

Present: -
Shri Raghubir Singh,Complainant in person.
Shri Surjit Singh Randhawa,PIO-cum-Principal on behalf of Respondent.

Respondent appeared and submitted that as regards point No.6, no teacher’s profile has been submitted to the Chancellor (Vice President of India) of Panjab Unviersity, Chandigarh. This case was adjourned for today.

2. I have heard the parties at length and have gone through the record produced before me, it has been concluded that whatever complainant has asked for the information/ documents, he has got all the documents earlier with him. Respondent also submitted that he is having personal litigation with the complainant.

3. I feel there is no public interest involved in this case. RTI Act, 2005 is a beneficial piece of the legislation and it is not meant for to settle their scores/grouses for their vested interests and one should not make mockery of this Act.

4. As the information stands supplied to the complainant, no further action is required. Accordingly, the case is closed and disposed of.

5. Copies of the order be sent to the parties.

Order
In compliance with the directions dated 30.5.2011 of this Commission, the information pertaining to copies of the attendance register has been furnished free of cost to the complainant.

2. As regards payment of compensation, the respondent submits that he has brought cash to be given to the complainant. This, however, is not acceptable as the compensation should be paid by a crossed cheque in favour of the complainant from the account of the respondent-college. Therefore, the case is adjourned to 29.07.2011 at 10.30 A.M. for confirmation that the compensation has been paid to the complainant by a crossed cheque.

Present:-
Mrs. Kamla complainant in person.
Shri Surjit Singh, Randhawa, Principal on behalf of the respondent.

ORDER

The respondent submits letter No.689 dated 28.5.2011 alongwith a duly sworn affidavit of Sant Sadhu Singh, President, Sikh Education Council S.G.G.S. Khalsa College, Mahilpur confirming that no appointment of lecturers on regular basis was made against the sanctioned vacant posts during the period from 14.7.2005 to 30.9.2010. He further submits that only adhoc/temporary appointments were made on the vacant posts from its own sources by the Management Council.

2. In response to a query by the complainant, the principal further states that no appointment letters were issued to adhoc/temporary appointees. As per the principal, this is being done by all private colleges to avoid litigation from adhoc/temporary lecturers.

3. The respondent also submits letter No.690 dated 28.5.2011. He pleaded that there was no delay in furnishing of the information. The requisite fee was not deposited by the information-seeker, who was asked vide letter No.1005 dated 30.10.2010 to remove the deficiencies. The plea of the principal is that the information-seeker had asked for copies of the staff attendance register under 95% grant-in-aid. It consisted of nearly 464 pages. No fee was paid by the information-seeker. It was further averred that the complainant was repeatedly advised to apply to Sikh Educational Council, SGGS Khalsa College, Mahilpur for the required record which was available with the council.

4. I have heard the parties and gone through the record.

5. It is true that many private Management Committees do keep record with them. However, as already held on 18.4.2011, the Principal and the Management Committee together manage the affairs of the college and therefore, they together constitute public authority as defined under Section 2(h) of the Right to Information Act, 2005. The plea that the record is with the Management Committee is no excuse to deny the information. The PIO was under an obligation to requisition the information from the Management Committee under Section 5(4) of the Act ibid.

6. The fear of the management and also lack of knowledge of the Act has resulted in delay in this case. Considering the circumstances and facts, end of justice would be met if the balance information pertaining to copies of the attendance register is supplied free of cost by the Principal and a compensation of Rs. 2000/- is paid to the complainant by the respondent.

7. To come up on 1.7.2011 at 10.30 A.M.

Present:-
Mrs.Kamla complainant in person.
Dr. Surjit Singh Randhawa, Principal on behalf of the respondent.

ORDER
Dr. S.S.Randhawa, Principal of the respondent college has submitted a written reply vide No.546 dated 18.4.2011, which is taken on record. A copy of this has been given to the complainant. The plea of the respondent/PIO and also of the Principal, Shri Guru Gobind Singh Khalsa College, Mahilpur is that the record regarding adhoc appointments is not in the possession of the answering-respondents. It is pleaded that at the end of every academic session documents pertaining to such adhoc appointments are submitted to the Managing Committee of the College for the purpose of reconciliation of account as they have to pay salary from their own sources to adhoc appointees. The plea taken is that Management Committee is a third party under the Right to Information Act, 2005 and therefore, the respondent-PIO is not answerable to furnish the information. The complainant on the other hand submits that PIO never took this plea in the two replies sent to her and that the record is available with the Principal.

2. I have heard the parties and gone through their respective stands. Management Committee of a college receiving grant-in-aid from the State Government and the Principal of the College are not two different entities but together constitute “Public Authority” as defined in Section 2(h) of the Right to Information Act, 2005. Principal and the Managing Committee together manage the affairs of the College, to which Government gives grant-in-aid. The PIO appointed by the College authorities is only a nodal point to coordinate dissemination of information. Therefore, the letter written by the Principal vide No.PL/SPL/570 dated 10.3.2011 to the President of Sikh Education Council would be treated as a transfer of the RTI request under Section 5(4) of the Act. The President of the Council, Sant Sadhu Singh Kaharpuri of Shri Guru Gobind Singh Khalsa College, Mahilpur will be a deemed PIO under Section 5(5) of the Act. In exercise of powers conferred under Section 18(3) of the Right to Information Act, 2005, summons are hereby issued to Sant Sadhu Singh ji Kaharpuri to produce the relevant record on the next date of hearing which is fixed for 9.5.2011.

------------Respondent.

CC No. 201 of 2011
Present:-
Mrs. Kamla complainant in person.
Dr. S.S.Randhawa, Principal on behalf of the respondent.

ORDER
The written plea of the respondent submitted vide Reference No.277 dated 7.2.2011 is that only that part of the management of the College would be covered under the Right to Information Act which receives 95% deficit grant. It is averred that those parts of the institution which are not paid out of 95% deficit grant would not be covered under the Act.

2. This plea of the respondent is erroneous and is based on a wrong interpretation of the law. Since it is admitted that S.G.G.S. Khalsa College, Mahilpur is receiving 95% deficit grant from the Government, it would be a public authority within the meaning of Section 2(h) of the Right to Information Act, 2005 and all its activities/wings, irrespective of the fact whether any particular wing is funded by the State or not, would fall within the ambit of Act.

3. The second plea of the respondent is also based on a misinterpretation of law that an adhoc employee not receiving salary out of 95% grant cannot seek information under the Right to Information Act about Principal or any other details.

4. If record pertaining to adhoc appointments or attendance pertaining to old period of 2006 etc. is not available or the record has not been preserved, then the respondent should take that plea and file its written submissions. The respondent is given an opportunity to file his written reply, keeping in view the above observations.

5. To come up on 7.3.2011 at 11.00 A.M.

S G G S KHALSA COLLEGE MAHALPURVs EDUCATIONAL TRIBUNAL PUNJAB AND OTHERS Civil Writ Petition 23465 of 2010

Surya Kant, J. (Oral)
The petitioner-College is aggrieved by the order dated 9.11.2010 (Annexure P-1) passed by the Educational Tribunal, Punjab, whereby the claim of respondent No.2 for payment of wages till 14th
December, 2009, namely, the period for which he worked as Clerk with the petitioner-College, has been accepted but his further prayer for continuity in service has been turned down on the ground that he was over-age at the time of his appointment and there is no power to relax the said eligibility condition. While accepting the claim of 2nd respondent for payment of salary for the period he worked as Clerk, the Tribunal has held as follows:-

....As we have held above that office of DPI ( C ) is equally responsible with college authorities in granting the approval and confirmation to the petitioner, therefore, petitioner would be entitled to the wages till 14.12.2009.

The difference of salary shall be paid to the petitioner at the first instance by college authorities from its own resources and thereafter, it shall submit the claim to the office of D.P.I. (C) who will reimburse the amount to college authorities as we have held above that the petitioner was not serving gratuitously. Rather he has been restrained from performing his duties by college authorities and under the advice of office of D.P.I. (C). Both should share the blame.....

Keeping in view the facts and circumstances, it would, thus, be seen that the petitioner-management has been directed to pay the
arrears of salary at the first instance from its own resources and thereafter put its claim to the D.P.I. (C) who in turn is required to re-imburse the same to the petitioner-college.

Suffice it to say that respondent No.2 despite being over-age was appointed as Clerk by the petitioner-management only. In the light of the above, the petitioner-management appears to have neither any `locusstandi' nor `cause of action' to impugn the order passed by the Educational Tribunal.

Dismissed.

Surya Kant, J. (Oral)
One of the contentious issues raised on behalf of the respondent -retired Lecturers before the Educational Tribunal was with regard to their entitlement to the enhanced gratuity. The learned Tribunal took it as point No.1 and has held as follows:-
15. With regard to Point No.1 formulated above as to whether petitioners are entitled to enhanced gratuity or not, they are relying upon Panjab University letter dated 14.10.2009 and the Punjab Government Circular dated 17.8.2009. A reading of this would show that this enhancement has been made applicable in case of teachers and non-teaching employees of non-government affiliated colleges of Panjab University w.e.f. 1.1.2006. Respondent No.2 is an aided institution. It is a non government affiliated college which is affiliated with Panjab University. If we examine the case of the petitioner Nos.1
to 3 from both angles that the circular of Punjab Government has been adopted by Panjab University and that Punjab Government has already taken a decision to pay gratuity at the rate of Rs.10 lacs, petitioner Nos.1 to 3 who admittedly retired after 1.1.2006 would be entitled to this amount each. There is no rebuttal of the respondents
to this claim made by petitioner Nos.1 to 3. Therefore, the first point is decided in favour of petitioner Nos.1 to 3 against respondents who are directed to pay difference of the enhanced gratuity. If respondent No.2 pay the same from its personal resources, it may stake claim from the State Government in accordance with law which may examine the claim made by the respondent No.2 and dispose of the same according to Rules within three months from the date of receipt of any reference by respondent No.2. We are not included to give any interest on this amount as it is not the policy of the State Government to grant any interest.... There is no denial to the fact that in terms of the Government circular duly endorsed by the University and forwarded vide letter dated 14.7.1999, the enhanced amount of gratuity is payable w.e.f. 1.1.2006. The private respondents who retired on different dates but after 1.1.2006, have therefor, been rightly held entitled by the Tribunal for the enhanced gratuity. No interference with the Tribunals order dated 30.3.2010 (Annexure P-4) on its order dated 28.7.2010 (Annexure P-6) dismissing the review application moved by the petitioner-Management is called for by this Court in exercise of its writ jurisdiction.

Faced with this, learned counsel for the petitioner states that the State Government shall not release any aid to the petitioner-college under the grant-in-aid Scheme for payment of the arrears of the enhanced gratuity. Suffice it to observe that the petitioner-college after making payment to the private respondents, shall be at liberty to put-forth its claim before the State Government/DPI (Colleges) in accordance with the Grantin- Aid Scheme. The State Government/DPI (Colleges) are directed to consider the petitioner-colleges claim as and when put up and dispose of the same in accordance with law, within a period of two months of its receiving.
Ordered accordingly.
Dasti.

The grievance of the petitioner in this case is that despite the directions issued by this Court vide order dated 3.2.2009 in CWP No.5932 of 2008, the grant-in-aid was not being released to the petitioner-College.

In response to the show cause, in reply filed by Sh. Karan A. Singh, IAS, Principal Secretary to Govt. of Punjab, Department of Finance, it was submitted that a provision of Rs.230.08 crore has been made as additional fund for the financial year 2009-10 for payment of pending amount of grant-in-aid to the various colleges and the Department of Higher Education has already issued sanction vide letter dated 7.7.2009 for the payment to the petitioner.

Today, an affidavit of Ms. Maninder Dhillon, Director of Public Instruction(Colleges) Punjab, Chandigarh has been filed wherein it has been submitted that the respondents have released grant-in-aid amounting
to Rs.1,38,85,524/- to the petitioner vide draft No.369260 dated 19.8.2009.

In view of the aforesaid stand taken by the respondents, I am not inclined to proceed further in this contempt petition.

Rule discharged.
