MP State Information Commission has no information commissioners
Commission Iqbal Ahmed has retired, the commission is rendered member-less as he was both the head and the only member of the commission.
Earlier also, in March 2012 after the retirement of the then CIC the commission continued to function without any head or any member till August 2012 when Mr. Iqbal Ahmed was appointed as the head of the commission.
As per the Right to Information (RTI) Act, the commission has a total strength of nine members apart from the CIC. However, the commission has never attained its full strength as the appointment of information commissioners has not been done.
Due to lack of members, the number of RTI cases pending before the commission has burgeoned to the tunes of 10,000.
