Penalties imposed on PIO and disciplinary action against FAA should be disclosed
Ref: Tamil Nadu SIC plans for a system for tracking of second appeals
Comment: I am to inform that the delay in disposal of second appeal disposal at SIC Tamil Nadu, is due to large number of appeals filed annually forcing the appellants waiting for, most of the sometimes more than year, resulting in unbearable mental agony and distress to appellants. Had the PIOs & First Appeal Authority acted diligently in disposing RTI applications within the stipulated time, SIC would not have received such Second Appeals. My main grievance is information regarding penalties imposed on PIO & Disciplinary action recommended against First Appeal Authority is never disclosed to appellants. Hence, in order to enlighten appellants, RTI Act to be amended to make disclosing aforesaid details mandatory for CIC & SIC to appellants. Will the Govt accede to this demand to make RTI strong?
