Information Commission has no authority to review and revise its order at all22 Feb, 2021
Ref: CIC withdraws its previous order under RTI Act granting compensation to appellant
There is no authority to Appellate Authority and the Information Commission to order an inspection under the provisions of the Act. The inspection is the right of information seeker and the PIO/ AA/ COMMISSION cannot force the applicant/ appellant to go in for inspection. It is the duty of the Commission to order the PIO to provide the information to the applicant if it is not exempted.
Moreover, the compensation has to be paid by the Public Authority and not PIO. Commission has no authority to review and revise its order at all. The act of commission is ultra-vires.
