RTI petition filed by 5th Pillar to retrieve payment for service provided

The former Panchayat President of Tirupullani Panchayat in Alangulam Panchayat Union undertook an additional pipe line work connecting Alangulam and Kannangudi villages during the year 2005-2006 at an estimated cost of Rs. 40,000.The work has been successfully completed but the payment is yet to be settled even after four long years. Instead of making the payment to the Panchayat, the Panchayat Union has issued the cheque to a third person, and he has misplaced the cheque. The payment for the work completed in the year 2006 is yet to be settled. The then Panchayat President has submitted a Non- encashement certificate and has requested for payment,which was never taken note of. Representations have been sent to the Panchayat Union, Alangulam as well as the Project Officer, District Development Agency, Ramnad during February, 2010. There has been no response from any of these people. The then Panchayat President approached 5th Pillar for a possible relief. An RTI representation was made on 30th August 2010 to the Public Information Officer, Panchayat Union, Alangulam to provide information under the Right to Information Act, 2005.
