Reason for delay in announcing the award under performance linked cash incentive scheme
The appellant filed an application under the Right to Information (RTI) Act with the Canara Bank seeking information pertaining to eligibility conditions for getting the cash award under performance linked cash incentive scheme; particulars of amendments and other related issues in the matter. The Public Information Officer (PIO) provided some of the information.
During the hearing before the Central Information Commission (CIC), the appellant stated that the deferral of the results of the performance linked cash incentive scheme was inappropriate. The respondent stated that as the appellant had taken VRS, he become ineligible for the scheme which may have prompted this RTI application. The respondent added that that it was a routine delay and nothing more than that and the scheme incidentally also did not earmark any cut-off date.
View of CIC
The Commission held that the respondent has already taken action under the RTI Act, and nothing further needs to be done on this RTI application.
