The undersigned sought information under RTI Act 2005 dated 31st July 2014 from Labour Commissioner, Haryana about the implementation of Majithia Wage Board Recommendations on journalists and employees of the Press which was constituted on 4th March 2009. The SPIO cum Deputy Labour Commissioner, Haryana provided the half baked, evasive reply on 23rd Jan 2015. No information about Gurgaon & Faridabad was provided.
ये है जवाब…
ये है आरटीआई…
It is was shocking to note that recommendations of Majithia Wage Board were not at all implemented by Dainik Bhaskar & Amar Ujala based at PANIPAT (224 Employees) which is major violation of law by these Newspapers. In Ambala, 40 & 28 employees of Punjab Kesari & Aaj Samaj were “being provided” the benefits of Majithia Wage Board recommendations.
As the information was not complete, I filed first appeal under Section 19(1) of RTI Act 2005 before Additional Labour Commissioner of Haryana who directed the SPIO cum Deputy Commissioner Labour to provide information but the same was not provided.
Aggrieved, I filed second appeal under Section 19(3) of RTI Act 2005 before Hon’ble SIC Haryana which in today’s hearing directed the SPIO cum Deputy Commissioner Labour, to provide the information completely.The Hon’ble Commission was pleased to issue Show Cause Notice to SPIO cum Deputy Commissioner Labour, Haryana under Section 20(1) of RTI Act 2005 for unnecessary delaying the information.
Let us see after the information is received whether the most respected fourth Pillar of democracy respects the law and there is no exploitation of journalists.
