How information is cunningly denied by PIO of Odisha State Cooperative Bank


How information sought under RTI is cunningly denied by PIO of Odisha State Cooperative Bank to cover up mega corruption in the Bank

Dear friends
On 21.3.18 while responding UDA Q No. 45 in Odisha Legislative assembly, Sri Surya Narayan Patro, Minister for Cooperation said that the Government  had given order for inquiry  into alleged huge corruption and irregularities in Odisha State Cooperative Bank  by  a committee headed by Auditor General-cum-additional secretary of the office of Registrar, Cooperatives.

 Keeping it in view, the following information was sought under RTI dated 23.3.18 from the Department of Cooperation, Govt. of Odisha , Secretariat, Bhubaneswar.

1.       Copy of the decision taken by the Government in respect of constitution of the inquiry Committee headed by   Auditor General and copy of the enquiry report submitted to Govt.
2.       Copy of the  decision taken  in respect of  filling  of defamation case  in   the court of Civil Judge, Bhubaneswar  by  Odisha State Cooperative Bank against  two persons for making false allegation (?) of corruption and irregularities  in the Bank . It needs to be mentioned here that since last three years, a number of complaints has been filed by a number of Social Activists seeking an inquiry  into corruption and irregularities in the Bank.  Two vigilance case has also been filed against OSCB  seeking inquiry  into it. But the vigilance has not conducted any inquiry into it , as the  big people are  involved in it.  This is a 500 crore scam in Odisha.
3.       Copy of the inquiry report  submitted  by a committee of  two deputy secretaries of Cooperation Department and Joint-Register  of  Directorate of  Cooperation  into alleged  corruption in computerisation of  Primary Agriculture Cooperative Societies.( PACS) in Odisha
4.       On 30.6.17, the State Government in its letter no. 10489 has appointed Deputy-Register  and Assistant- Register of of  Directorate of Cooperation to enquire  into number of allegations of corruption  in Odisha State Cooperative Bank.   Provide copy of the report submitted, if any  to Government.

My RTI Application was forwarded  to the PIO, office of Registrar, Cooperatives  and  PIO, office of Odisha State Cooperative Bank on 17.4.18.

The PIO, office of Register, Cooperatives has not supplied  any information.  But  the  PIO, OSCB has  made useless and ridiculous  response and with malafide intention has denied the information to keep the information secret.
