Inspection of records relating to the land where illegal shops stand
The applicant wanted information and action against illegal shops standing in the premises of the temple. The Public Information Officer (PIO) explained that a temple is situated outside the area of Singroli Station of National Thermal Power Corporation Limited (NTPC). The priest of the temple had opened a shop in the premises of the temple and a number of shops have come up within the premises of NTPC which has adversely affected the business of the priest’s shop. The PIO stated that the new shops are in the premises of NTPC and the appellant has been urging NTPC authorities to take action against these illegal constructions. He submitted that the Management has taken up the matter with the District Administration and the police authorities but no action has been taken so far as the matter is sub-judice in a District Court regarding these illegal constructions. He also submitted that the whole position has been explained to the appellant herein.
View of CIC
The Central Information Commission (CIC) noted that the matter is under litigation and so there is no need to pass any order. The CIC ruled that if the appellant wishes to see the records relating to the land where illegal shops stand, this inspection may be given.
