Appointment of Information Commissioners should be just and fair
Ref: AP High Court quashes the appointment of four Information Commissioners
It is a very good decision.
The Government of India and state Governments in India never like that this RTI Act or any other Act in India should be implemented in proper way. Acts & Rules are framed as per their choices to do the business of Votes at the cost of the Public Money of the Honest Tax Payers and not for proper implementation in public interest.
There is Land Mark Judgment of the Hon’ble SC of India with the Title of Secretary Karnatka V/s Uma Devi and other many judgments on the point of the Appointment but the Officers of the departments in India never bother for proper implementation. This RTI could not be implemented in proper way and RTI Activists are being harassed due to such appointments of the CIC/SIC/IC/CPIO/Appellate Authorities in the respective department
About 33 RTI Activists lost their lives at the cost of their families but the Governments do not bother or give any relief to their families.
Sir, I would request now that there should one 1st Appellate Authority for one state covering all the department so that this Act could be implemented in proper way as there is tendency to shield their CPIO of the same department and RTI Activist could be able to get the proper Information in time
