Prajagale,

Before we are overtaken by great things that are happening on Praja front, it is time to share some progress update on BIAL-RTI efforts. Here is a summary of the progress so far:

  1. RTI Applications - A total of 11 RTI applications have been filed with various agencies that are part of BIAL Project. 5 with AAI, 2 with KSIIDC, 2 with GOK, 1 each with GDCA and MOCA. All these were filed around 2nd week of September .
  2. Information Requested - It covers a whole lot of details that govern BIAL project ranging from tender process, consortium selection process, CA agreement finalization, authorities who approved 150 Km rule, HAL closure approval, airport license process to non-compliance in facilities found before the operational license etc.
  3. Response - So far, DGCA, MoCA, and KSIIDC have acknowledged that they have received the application. Yet to hear from AAI and GOK.
  4. DGCA - Has asked for additional fees to be sent for providing the copies of info requested. This request have been responded with the requested additional fess paid thru a Postal order which was sent around 2nd week fo Oct, 08.
  5. MoCA - Has also asked for additional fees for providing the copies of information. Similarly this has been responded with the requested additional fees in 2nd week of October, 08.
  6. KSIIDC - Has requested the applicants to visit their office and get the copies of information we need. They are closed on 2nd and 4th Saturday. Therefore, we are tentatively planning for 3rd Saturday in November, i.e Nov 15th.

We need volunteers to accompany Rithesh Swamy to KSIIDC office and get the copies of BIAL information we all are looking for. Guys, here is our chance to dig that one truth everybody is trying to hide and dodge. The effort involved is, visiting KSIIDC office and scan their office records for the information. Make copies of the information we require. If you are interested please send a PM to Rithesh. Tentatively the visit has been planned for Nov 15. Rithesh is the contact person for this effort.

Devesh,

Very interesting. You seems to have the traffic data for past 8 years, but AAI officially claims it doesn't have the data readily available for 2001 and before.

Am I missing something here?

Published annually. The 2007-8 version should be ready. It has all the data. See this graph made by me almost a year ago. http://picasaweb.google.c.... Visit my Picasa or Flickr site. http://picasaweb.google.c.... What nonsense is AAI giving you.

I posted the data here http://bangalore.praja.in...

KSIIDC RTI Update

up
58 users have liked.
As mentioned we were planing for a visit to KSIIDC to look into the documents on Saturday the 15th. However it seams it is a government holiday on that day (Kanakadasa Jayanthi). And also the documents are still not ready :( but will be ready in a day or two (I dont understand the delay though). So if a few of guys are ok, we can plan a visit to KSIIDC on a Friday afternoon (either this week or next week). Rithesh Prajasevaka :)
