Provisions for harsher penalties should be there in case of intentional denial of information
Ref: A short compendium of important decisions of Central Information Commission
Comment: Whenever information sought for is refused intentionally or with malafide intention, the provisions should be made for harsher penalties than the existing one. Most of the PIO’s happily pay the fine as the fine amount is peanut to them.
