Details of the action taken against the architect for illegal construction
The appellant sought information regarding a construction not done as per sanctioned plan like the action taken against the architect, the name of officers who issued notice to the architect, reasons for non-issuance of the notice if any and the copy of inspection report by Junior Engineer (JE), Assistant Engineer (AE) and Senior Engineer (SE). The Public Information Officer (PIO) provided point wise reply but the appellant was not satisfied with the PIO reply. During the hearing the appellant pointed out that there is an office order which mandates that in case building is being constructed without supervision the construction should be stopped and a show cause should be issued to the architect.
View of CIC
The Central Information Commission (CIC) noted that the PIO has not given categorical reply and was therefore directed to give a specific reply to the appellant about the action taken against the architect and if no action has been taken against the architect this should be clearly stated. The Commission also directed the PIO to provide specific information related to the office order.
