Court fixed responsibility for delay in providing information collectively on the CVC and not on its CPIO alone

   (0 reviews)

About This File

The explanation offered by the CVC is not sufficient to excuse the delay in furnishing the information. The CVC has not been able to show that it acted ‘reasonably or diligently’ in the circumstances outlined hereinbefore. However, this Court would lay the responsibility for this delay in providing information collectively on the CVC and not on its CPIO alone. The exercise that the Court is now undertaking should in the usual course have been performed by the CIC in the appeal filed before it by the Petitioner.

But for some reason, the CIC did not take up the appeal for a long time and this compelled the Petitioner to approach this Court. The Petitioner is right in contending that if the matter again goes back to the CIC only for the purpose of determining what should be the penalty and the compensation payable by the CVC, it would needlessly delay the matter further.
