CIC itself to pay Rs 500/- compensation

Recommended Posts

In a recent decision, the CIC agreed to compensate a appelant a compensation of Rs 500/- because:

 

Commission has been in violation of provision of the RTI

Act 2005 in notifying parties of the date of hearing which necessitated

adjournment. The appellant Maj. Ravindran is, therefore, entitled to

compensation. The demand for Rs. 500/- can indeed be deemed

reasonable. This amount will be paid by the Commission

 

In the same decision, the Registrar of the Delhi High Court has confirmed that the fee has been rationalized from Rs 500/- to a more reasonable Rs. 50/-.

      If we discontinue any course before completion in a private college should we pay the full course fee as demanded by the management? (Is it legally correct for the college to ask full course fee?)
