A shameful incident from Rajasthan is going viral on the internet where a doctor tied a street...
The PM CARES Fund does not come under Government of India and the amount collected by it does not go to the said Fund of India, centre informed Delhi High Court
An affidavit filed by the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO), Under Secretary who is discharging his functions in the PM Cares Trust said the trust functions with transparency and its funds are kept account of by an auditor a chartered accountant drawn from the panel and prepared by Auditor General of India.
In return to a petition seeking to declare the PM CARES Fund a ‘State’ a petition was filed under the Constitution to make it transparent in its functioning. Chief Justice D. N. Patel and Justice Amit Bansal have fixed the date of September 27 for further hearing.
“The audited report is put on the official website of the fund with details to ensure transparency received by the trust,” says the affidavit by Pradeep Kumar Srivastava, Under Secretary PMO India.
Central Public Information Officer (CPIO), PMO, refuse to provide documents sought on the ground that PM Cares Fund is not a public authority under the RTI Act.
General Tushar Mehta, representative of PMO, opposed the petition, stating that PMO care fund is not a Indian Government Fund and thus these RTI can not be entertained.
According to the official website, during 2019-20, an amount of Rs. 3076.62 Crore was found under PM CARES Fund.
Let's See How People Are Reacting On Twitter:
Finally, the GOI accepted that #pmcares fund is not govt fund. Hence, it is under NO obligation to use it for the welfare of 'People of India'. But for donation, GOI used govt machineries & institutions to advertise PM CARES in #India & abroad. https://t.co/2oeXwvvRCq— Poonam Agarwal (@poonamjourno) September 23, 2021
Govt is absolutely right in telling the Delhi High Court that PM CARES is not a Govt of India fund and doesn't come under RTI as a public authority.— Srivatsa (@srivatsayb) September 23, 2021
PM CARES is Modi's Private Fixed Deposit (FD)
