Evasive response of RTI applications on related matters
There was allotment of plots by Meerut Development Authority (MDA) under Shatabdi Nagar Schemes. But there are confirmed reports that certain corrupt officials at MDA have prepared duplicate files under forged signatures in anticipation that genuine allottees might never return for taking possession of plots for which even sale-deeds are executed. RTI applications filed for confirmation on record and exposing the big scandal are responded in a deliberate evasive manner. It is significant that Prime Minister in his two speeches at CIC on 16.10.2015 and 07.03.2018 has asked officials to carefully go through aspects raised in RTI applications even after responding to RTI applications. Even UP Chief Minister has also stressed on zero-tolerance for corruption, and making guilty ones to their deserved place in prison.
UP government should order a thorough probe in the matter to nail the culprits including the corrupt officials and frauds having managed creating duplicate files through forgery ensuring stringent punishment including lodging FIR against the culprits.
