To: Dhiraj Srivastava <>, "ritasharma.secy" <>, ritasharma <>, Cabinet Secretary to Government of India <>, chairperson <>,


1) Central Public Information Officer
National Advisory Council
New Delhi

2) Cabinet Secretary to Govt of India

Date: 29-May-2013

Kind Attn:
a) Mr Dhiraj Shrivastava (PS to Chairperson/NAC),

b) Mr Ajit Kumar Seth (Cabinet Secretary/GoI)



Sub: RTI request under section 4 of RTI Act 2005 to be complied immediately.

Kindly treat this as a "Life or Liberty" application

I have come to know from the below mentioned NDTV link that there are now some vacancies for post of "Member" in the National Advisory Council and which post(s) I would like to formally apply to be considered for.

I am given to understand that the published qualification for the post is "professionals with diverse experience" which I abundantly fulfill.

I would therefore be obliged to be urgently informed the procedure and application format (if any) to be considered.

I would also like to be urgently informed about the present prescribed salary and perquisites for the post, as I know for a fact that some corrupt members of NAC-I were misusing their posts (which was then an unpaid one) to lobby for foreign interests.

With best wishes

yours sincerely

Social activist Aruna Roy resigns from Sonia Gandhi-led National Advisory Council

Social activist Aruna Roy has decided not to continue in the National Advisory Council, led by UPA chairman Sonia Gandhi, after her term expires on Friday.

Ms Roy has written a letter to Mrs Gandhi requesting that she should not be considered for another term of NAC that sets the social agenda for the government and the UPA Chairperson has accepted the request.

On her way out, Ms Roy criticised the government for not taking up recommendations of the council on minimum wages to workers under Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Act (MGNREGA).
