Hearing of first appeal by FAA a must after issue of hearing notice

The CIC has ruled that it is mandatory for a FAA to conduct a proper hearing after issuing a Notice of Hearing to the appellant. Otherwise the order of the FAA can be set aside.

 

Summary:

 

1. Passing orders in first appeal without hearing or sending hearing notice is illegaland will render the order invalid. The Commission sets aside the order of FirstAppellate Authority for violating RTI Act and breach of natural justice by denying theappellant a chance of presenting his case and by raising entirely a new defencewhich was never claimed. Commission finds it deserves action though theconcerned officer retired from service and recommends Public Authority to initiatedisciplinary action against the concerned FAO for acting totally against the RTI Actin this case.

      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.
