Details of delivery of foreign parcel under the RTI Act
The appellant sought the information related with an article which came from Australia and was meant for his son. The article was received in Foreign Post Office, Kolkata, for Custom’s assessment. The Public Information Officer (PIO) denied the information claiming non availability of the records.
View of CIC
The respondent submitted that as per record, an article was received from Australia for the appellant’s son and was duly received in Foreign Post Office for Custom’s assessment. However, as it was an unregistered article, no records are available to indicate whether it was delivered to the addressee or not. The Central Information Commission (CIC) analysed the whole matter and directed the PIO to provide the copies of all available records related to this article to the appellant within the stipulated time.
