Government appointing Information Commissioners is in itself a contradiction
Ref: Karnataka appoints an information commissioner for the state information commission
Comment: Government appointing information commissioners is in itself an anachrony and contradiction because information has to be given by the Government and hence the struggle is against the ones who are handling the appointment process. Therefore if court is the appointing authority and funds to run RTI commission is allocated at the order of court, RTI commissioners can act independently. Also retired judges would be a better choice for the post of commissioners.
