Even the officers pass quasi-judical orders similar to CIC orders of RTI
With reference to the supreme court order on information commissioners, it is worthwhile to note that even the officers of many of the civil services pass quasi-judical orders similar to CIC orders of RTI. Income-Tax, Central Excise and Customs officers pass quasi-judicial orders all through their life and are better legal experts than many of the lawyers. Can they not be preffered over the lawyers for appointment as information commissioner? If not, should the post of commissoner (appeals) not be filled only in by lawyers if the argument of the SC are accepted?
