The appellant submitted that he was satisfied with the said reply except on point no. 5. Later on, he submitted that after the receipt of the CIC notice, he received the reply on point no. 5 in March, 2017 but for this delay, he had undergone some suffering. The respondent CPIO stated that the same record was not available at Bilaspur but it was available at Raipur division. The respondent CPIO, Raipur had not transferred the said point as mentioned in the above stated RTI application u/s 6(3) of the RTI Act to Bilaspur Branch and hence he was unable to reply within the stipulated time. The respondent CPIO, Raipur is advised to be more careful while dealing with RTI matters in future.
Since the information provided now is just and proper and moreover as the appellant received all the requested information, nothing much remains in this case.
With the above direction and observation, the appeal is disposed of.
