Cleanliness of railway station taken up through RTI
The appellant sought point wise information with respect to the cleanliness of circulating areas of Gulbarga station and action taken on his letter sent six months back. The Public Information Officer (PIO) stated in a single line reply that the cleanliness work of Glulbarga station was being managed departmentally. The applicant filed second appeal before the Central Information Commission (CIC) stating that the PIO has provided incomplete information and the First Appellate Authority (FAA) has not disposed off the first appeal.
View of CIC
The Commission observed that point wise information had not been provided to the appellant and instead a one line answer has been furnished. The Commission directed the PIO to provide point wise information to the appellant, as available in the records along with copies of supporting documents and if information against any point is not available in the records the appellant should be informed accordingly. The Commission also awarded a compensation of Rs.2000/- for the detriment he suffered in terms of time and money.
