Information regarding membership fee of the Congress Party
The appellant alleged that someone in the Congress Party was collecting higher membership fee. In this regard he filed an application under RTI with the Election Commission (EC) of India seeking about the action taken by them against the said candidate. The Public Information Officer (PIO) informed him that the query had no relation to the Election Commission and they did not have any such information to share.
View of CIC
The Central Information Commission (CIC) rejected the appeal observing that the sought information had nothing to do with the Election Commission.
