Application No CIC/AT/A/2005/00004
Dated: December 27/1/’06
Right to Information Act – Section19
Name of Applicant: Shri Raj Kumar
Name of Public Authority: MCD
Shri Raj Kumar of Jhilmil, Delhi had made an application to Deputy
Commissioner, MCD (SHS) on June 5, 2005, requesting action taken on a
complaint on ongoing illegal construction in Dilshad Garden Delhi. Not satisfied
with the reply received from Deputy Commissioner (S), who is PIO,dated
18/11/’05 the appellant made an appeal to the Additional Commissioner (HQ),
Appellate Authority-1, MCD, who, in citing a subsequent letter from the PIO to the
appellant dated 29/11/’05, indicated that the property continues to vest with the
DDA from whom information had been sought, and not with the MCD. But in
response to the applicant’s request that a copy of the letter written to the DDA be
given him, he advised the appellant to make a fresh application for this. 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, 2006. CB Sharma and RK Gupta, Executive
engineer (Bldg) representing PIO MCD were present
The MCD and DDA are separate public authorities. 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, 2005 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. In any case, as per the comments received from the MCD
vide their letter No 423/DC/SHS/2006, the requisite copy has been supplied the
required copy on 23/01/’05 (sic). 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., but this falls
under Para 6 of the original application of the appellant to the PIO and the
information was not provided within the time limits specified under Section 7(1),
this shall be provided free of charge as per Sec 7(6).

Let a copy of this decision be sent free of cost to the parties.

Information Commissioner

application and payment of the charges prescribed under the Act to the CPIO of
