Disciplinary action for delay in providing information
A farmer Shri Ravindra Jawlekar from Wardha submitted an application under the RTI Act to Chief Engineer, Mahatransco, Nagpur Zone, seeking information regarding laying of towers etc. on November 30, 2010. As per provisions of RTI Act, the information was to be provided before January 2, 2011. But the Mahatransco officials provided it on March 8, 2011 which the applicant claimed as incomplete and incorrect. Dissatisfied with the information he filed a second appeal under Section 19 (3) of RTI Act before SIC, Nagpur Bench. Holding the delay in providing information as unacceptable, the SIC ordered disciplinary action against executive engineer Mr. Kishori Mitra of Maharashtra State Electricity Transmission Co Ltd (Mahatransco) for delay in providing information.
