Information regarding written test conducted by the public authority was sought under RTI
The appellant filed an application under the Right to Information (RTI) Act with the Chittaranjan Locomotive Works seeking information about a written test conducted by the public authority such as, the list of candidates with marks obtained by them and names of the officials who have set the question paper etc. The Public Information Officer (PIO) informed the applicant that his application was forwarded to the SPO (PC) but no information has been received from him. The PIO assured the applicant that as and when it is received the same would be supplied to him.
View of CIC
Neither the PIO nor the applicant attended the hearing before the Central Information Commission (CIC). The Commission observed that the appellant has not received any information from the SPO (PC) and directed that the SPO (PC) should furnish an appropriate reply to the appellant. The Commission also issued a show cause notice to the SPO (PC) to show cause as to why penalty should not be imposed upon him for not responding to the RTI application within the mandatory period.
