Comment: CIC has given a right decision that no action is called for on the part of the Commission.
However, there are instances where RTI applications provide important feedback to Government of India. This is one such instance where a citizen has given feedback that there is confusion in the minds of citizens about the name of our country. Government should examine it and provide necessary clarification through an order. Such confusion should not be allowed to continue.
