CIC and SIC

Question

GUNASELVAM_V

Sir, Is it mandatory to give decision by SIC only in line with other CICs order. I.e if RTI applicant quotes CIC's judgement, then SIC has to give decision only in that line?

CIC decisoons are not binding on SICs. SIC may decide on its own.

Taking the case as whole into consideration the SIC will give his decision and if need be he may use CIC/HC/SC decisions if they are relavent but it is not binding

Both the CIC as well as SIC are guided by the provisions of RTI Act, 2005, and as such they have to give their decisions in accordance with the provisions of the RTI Act.

 

Can you share with the forum as to what exact information has been sought vide the RTI application, so that the members can guide you further?

Remember, it is not just quoting of decision that Counts and it is material on record that helps appellant's cause. Appellant may quote for ready guidance and information of IC and argue during hearing of appeal on those positive aspects. But do not delay filing of appeal on the ground that you are not able to find citations. They may be taken as guidelines and not as directives.

As per principle of precedence, SIC should in all fairness take into account decisions of CIC on the same issue. You may refer to judgement dated 01-06-2012 of Hon’ble High Court of Delhi in W.P.© 11271/2009 –Registrar of Companies & ors v/s Dharmendra Kumar Garg & anr

      On 14.03.2018 a complaint was filed under RTI Act,2005 with CIC under section 20(1), on the grounds that the CPIO did not provide the information despite the orders of FAA.
      During the hearing the respondent CPIO of PMO office submitted that information had been provided to complainant vide letter dated 01.03.2018 through speed post.
      Whereas, the information wasn't received by me and after having hearing submission of both the parties and persuing the records the commission directs the respondent to resend the letter dated 01.03.2018 alongwith the proof of its dispatch including tracking number to the complainant within two weeks. Furthermore my complaint have been disposed of.
      The CPIO of PMO has coplience the orders of CIC and now I received the information alongwith proof of dispatch on 05.07.2019.
      Since the copy of reply furnished by CPIO of PMO is unprincipled and immature, & very much fishy. Therefore, expert advice is needed on the following issues
      1. Can I still file my appeal against the reply of CPIO of PMO in the event of disposed of my complaint in CIC orders.
      For your convenience I am enclosing the CIC orders.

      The life of Appointment Snails. In the absence of ICs the Chief Information Commissioner (CIC) Shatrughan Singh is not able to hold hearings of the commission.

      DEHRADUN: Delay in appointment of new ICs has resulted in piling up of appeals in Right to Information (RTI) cases at the SIC. The work in the SIC responsible for hearing the appeals in the RTI cases has stopped in the absence of ICs. The term of last remaining IC Surendra Singh Rawat ended in June this year.
      The long-pending appointment on the crucial position of Information Commissioner (IC) has got further delayed as the meeting of three-member committee, constituted to approve the names for ICs scheduled for Tuesday, was cancelled at the last moment. The meeting of the high-powered three-member committee, comprising the Chief Minister Trivendra Singh Rawat, leader of  the opposition ( LoP) Indira Hridayesh and senior Cabinet Minister Madan Kaushik was scheduled to be held at CM’s residence on Tuesday evening. The meeting was , however, cancelled as the CM left for Delhi in the afternoon to inquire about the health of former Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand Narayan Dutt Tiwari.
