3. I filed First Appeal with a request to FAA, that I am unable to come for hearing personally, if required, you are requested to call me on my mobile and also informing him that this is not mandatory for me to attend hearing of First Appeal.

4. After this, FAA send me a letter informing the schedule for hearing clearly informing that in case of your absence, case will be decided on merit basis.

5. I did not attend the hearing. I waited for the order copy, but FAA again send me a notice that you have not attended the hearing and give another date for hearing.

7. This time also, I ignore the hearing, now again I receive a letter informing the schedule for hearing.

It is not manadatory for you to attend the first appeal hearing.


Maybe the letter you sent to the FAA informing him to decide the case on merits, never reached him. If you have his number, just call him and check if he received your letter ans clarify your position.


If he has a FAX, just fax it to him or resend that letter AFTER speaking to him.

Just write a letter by quoting references to:


> Your previous letter informing the FAA that you did not wish to attend the hearing proceeding,

> Each of the FAA's hearing notice,

> And reiterate afresh (once again) to politely inform the FAA that you do not wish to exercise the opportunity of availing the hearing proceeding and that the case be decided on the merits of written submissions made in the first appeal.

      About 30,000 applications were received by various departments of the government, including DTC, MCD and education wing, since RTI Act was enforced in October 2005.

      Among the pending 2,542 applications, a maximum of 550 is with registrar of cooperative societies, which earned the court's ire after a scam was detected in the group housing societies, people's action and Urja, umbrella organisations of RWAS in the capital, claimed today.
      "Registrar of co-operative societies has been the maximum defaulter in not providing the correct or complete details sought by applicants," a release issued by people's action and Urja said.
      The maximum applications were received by registrar of co-operative societies (1,569), followed by education department (1117) and Delhi Jal Board (518).
      The District Commissioners' offices in various zones have been receiving RTI applications related to land with maximum filed at civil lines zone (960) followed by Paharganj (620).
