New Delhi: Municipal Corporation of Delhi is gripped under red-tapism that could be sensed with the fact that it dilly-dallies in furnishing information asked under the Right to Information.

Most of the time, MCD tries to shirk its responsibility by saying that the RTI application is not clear or does not fall in the work areas of the civic body.

What comes as a shock is that different MCD zones give different reactions to the same query asked under RTI application. One MCD zone provides immediate answer to a query whereas another zone finds it incomprehensive.

Notably, officials of MCD headquarters are not able to provide basic information related to roads and other areas. Several complaints against executive engineers for being negligent have been registered, sources said.
