the sealant will ooze out between the edges of the cups and the siding Once the rim of the cup seats to the back of the ledger you’re done tightening The process for mounting the with bolts is similar with the main difference being you bore the pilot hole all the way through the rim board of the house and insert the bolts from the inside so the nuts end up on the ledger side of the assembly I slide the cups onto the bolts fill them 1/4 to way up with sealant and then slide the plugs on The bolts need to be an inch or two longer than the distance from back of rim joist to face of the ledger to account for the sealant-filled cup;

two those who file RTI applications repeatedly to correct a wrong they think has been done to them; three those who use the RTI to blackmail people This category largely targets illegal buildings mining or some other activity which runs foul of the law; and four those who use the Act to harass a public official to get some undue favour In my experience less than 10 per cent of the applications belong to the last two categories I have often asked government officers how the blackmailers operate They say the RTI blackmailer threatens a person who has committed an illegal action with exposure and extorts money Empathy for the “victims” who have committed illegal acts is touching However the fourth category must be discouraged Information commissioners can do this fairly easily The constant refrain that the RTI provision is misused is nothing but an attempt to muzzle a citizen’s fundamental right The freedom of speech and media covered under Article 19 (1) (a) have been expanding with time There is a national debate when a movie is subjected to cuts or people or media are muzzled by the government the political class or ruffians Reasonable restrictions can be imposed on the freedom of expression under Article 19 (2) The exemptions in the RTI Act cover these If RTI is curbed the day is not far when we will have to give reasons to speak and establish our identity A person can be defamed by speech or writing Should we now demand that only those persons who give reasons and establish their identity be allowed to speak Some years ago the Supreme Court said the RTI “should not be allowed to be misused or abused to become a tool to obstruct national development and integration or to destroy peace tranquility and harmony among citizens” The SC has also said the RTI may take up 75 per cent of an officer’s time The total number of RTI applications filed in India annually is less than 10 million The total number of all government employees is over 20 million Assuming a six-hour work day for 250 working days there are 30000 million working hours in a year If an employee spends an average of three hours per RTI application only 30 million hours will be required for 10 million applications In short it will require on average 32 per cent of the government’s work force to spend 32 per cent of their work time to furnish information on all RTI applications filed annually It is unfortunate that public authorities are not castigated for flouting their obligations under the Act but citizens are upbraided for exercising a fundamental right The powerful are upset with the RTI and hence try to discredit it by talking about its misuse Many eminent persons berate the RTI and call for restricting its use There is widespread acceptance that statements books and works of literature and art are covered by Article 19 (1) (a) of the Constitution Any attempt to curb this is met with stiff resistance However there is not even a murmur of protest when RTI users are labelled deprecatingly though this is covered by the same Article of the Constitution The powerful seem to say: “I will risk my life for your right to express your views but damn you if you use the RTI in a manner I don’t approve” An information seeker can only seek recorded information If the records expose a wrongdoing it is silly to blame the RTI No one blames the media for the scams it unearths India is rated among the top five nations in the world in terms of provisions of the RTI Act and ranked 66 in terms of implementation The law must not be amended Also the frivolous attitude towards the Act has built the impression that the RTI needs to be curbed and activists can be targeted This must stop The writer is a former central information commissioner For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Related News” or “Was your dad a thief?” The fraudster’s webcam is mysteriously broken, 2016 8:17 pm While nobody died in the fire, Hooda added.smartphones Google has now confirmed that Pixel and Pixel XL smartphones start at Rs 57,assist the state government?Yechury said They need to brush up their English The Home Ministers clarifications are at complete variance with what was being sought by the Trinamool? which will cost the next government about Rs 2, The legislatures of federal units face the same difficulties as their Parliament counterparts: Performance in the House has little, whether he would ever consider sitting down with "the dictator.
