Goa Information Commissioner submits resignation
The Information Commissioner of Goa State Information Commission (SIC), Mr. Pradeep Padwal, has submitted his resignation to Goa Governor. It is not clear whether his resignation was in the wake of the Supreme Court judgment on Thursday which inter alia stated that knowledge of law was crucial for Information Commissioners. His appointment was earlier challenged by Right to Information (RTI) activist and lawyer Aires Rodrigues. Following his resignation, the two-member Goa Information Commission has become headless as Chief Information Commissioner Motilal Savlo Keni had retired a few days back.
