    Kindly do not worry about the exemptions at the stage of filing a RTI application.

    By Sunil Ahya

    Kindly do not worry about the exemptions at the stage of filing a RTI application, as reasoned below:   As per section 7(1): A PIO is supposed to either provide the information on payment of such fee as may be prescribed or reject the request for any of the reasons specified in sections 8 and 9   (Which means a PIO is supposed to either provide information or deny it under section 8 and 9). As per section 19(5): In any appeal proceedings, the onus to prove that a den

    NON-COMPLIANCE OF ORDERS OF CIC/SIC –Administrative Remedy

    By jps50

The only remedy with the information seeker is to lodge a complaint with Chief Information Commissioner, who routinely issues another order for compliance that too after a delay ranging from 6 to 36 months depending upon efficiency and pendency of CIC/SIC. Commissions hardly invoke powers of Civil Court vested in it u/s 18.3 to ensure speedy compliance with its own orders. Hence I suggest that if after two months of

Seeking Information In Rti A Costly Affair

The CIC (management) Regulations 2007 says that "Before submitting an appeal or complaint to the Commission, the appellant or the complainant shall cause a copy of the appeal or complaint, as the case may be, to be served on the CPIO/PIO and the Appellate Authorities and shall submit a proof of such service to the Commission".   Is is mandatory for the appellant to send the copies of the appeal or complaint to the PIO and the AA before submitting the appeal to the CIC. and also does one have

Upgradation and server change underway

I am upgrading and changing the server. This will cause downtime to varying degrees.   Unfortunately I could not inform prior to the task.   Kindly bear with me for some time till the upgrade is finished. Many of the features have been disabled and many are removed.   The full list would be online once the upgrade is finished.
