Long handwritten seven RTI applications part of which is in Sanskrit - CIC: These are absolutely frivolous and nonserious applications - the CPIO cannot be blamed for not providing any substantive information - appeals rejected
1. In none of his seven RTI applications, the Appellant has sought any information within the meaning of section 2 (f) of the Right to Information (RTI) Act except in one or two instances where he has sought to know about the action taken on his letter/representation addressed to the Prime Minister of India. The CPIO concerned, in each of these cases, has provided an appropriate response /information befitting the queries. Wherever the Appellant had appealed against the decision of the CPIO, the Appellate Authority has also disposed of the appeals and upheld the stand taken by the CPIO.
2. We have gone through the long handwritten RTI applications part of which, in some cases, is in Sanskrit. These are absolutely frivolous and nonserious applications. The Appellant has been very often in the habit of making such frivolous applications. Since he has sought no information as defined under the Right to Information (RTI) Act, we cannot blame the CPIO for not providing him with any substantive information. His appeals to the CIC are also without any merit. We reject all those appeals as infructuous.
