Are the Information Commissioners competent to adjudicate?
Penalty on the Karnataka Information Commissioner by the Supreme Court shows lack of legal knowledge on the part of many of the information commissioners in the country. It is a wonder how many of them have been selected for the post which appears to be in contravention of the requirements for the post's working. The quality of orders passed by the Information Commissioners is a casualty raising the doubt as to whether the Information Commissioners are competent to adjudicate. Ultimately, it is the citizen who suffers..... When will it change? Pradeep Sharma
