Srinagar, June 1: The Chief Information Commissioner (CIC) has issued a penalty notice against the Deputy Director (P&S) who is also the Public Information Officer (PIO) at Mission Director ICDS for failing to provide information under Right to Information Act to an applicant.

The CIC has also sought an explanation from the Mission Director ICDS as to why compensation may not be provided to he RTI applicant, hailing from Kupwara district of north Kashmir, for making him to wait for months to get simple information under RTI Act.

Details available with Early Times reveal that one Farooq Ahmed Lone had filed an RTI application before the PIO Mission Director, ICDS J&K on 11.11.2014 to seek some information about the schemes implemented by ICDS in Kupwara. Under the provisions of section 7 of the J&K RTI Act 2009, a response to the RTI application was to be given as expeditiously as possible as but not later than 30 days. That means the RTI application was to be decided in any case by December, 2014. As Farooq did not receive any response from the PIO, he filed first appeal before First Appellate Authority (FAA)--Mission Director ICDS--on 1.1.2015.

From all these posts, it appears that Kashmir CIC is using all his powers and not sparing PIOs. Why not others follow ?

Yes, he is very strict....maybe that is because his background is Chief Commissioner Income Tax

Sorry Hon.Karira..I do not agree that erstwhile position brings strength after reading about CVC and his past conduct.

      I learned that in RTI rule 20 only officers are liable for punishment under RTI. Then how those clerks can be held responsible?
