    I believe that this could be a landmark judgement. So far as I can make out (I am not a Lawer - IANAL), the court has ruled that the CIC, once it concluded that the PIO is at fault for the delay caused, is obligated to impose a fine as stipulated in section 20 of the RTI act. Not doing so amounts to a "failure to exercise jurisdiction lawfully vested in it" by the CIC.

    I think I'll be attaching a copy to every second appeal where a fine is asked for.
