    information supplied in language which the applicant does not understand is no information

    By jps50

    RTI applicants face the problem of language of reply, especially if the information is sought from other states.

However, I received a reply in Kannada and I had to email to my relative to translate it. I append below relevant extract from a judgment of High Court of Uttarakhand.

    32 Reasons why Information Commissioners do not impose penality

    By jps50

    WHY DO INFORMATION COMMISSIONERS NOT IMPOSE PENALTY? ICs are under the wrong impression that it is their discretion to levy or not to levy penalty at their will. In fact, once the breach of RTI Act is committed and not reasonably explained, the penalty must follow.  ICs are afraid because if they levy penalties, the serving govt officers may dig out their [ICs] misdoings when ICs were in service and ICs may have to face investigating agencies post-retirement. ICs want to fo
