Gujarat information commission issued GR

Recommended Posts


The Commission has no such powers to issue GR for a specific format for second appeal.


The power to make Rules with respect to the RTI Act 2005 is with the Central/State Government (sec 27) or the Competent Authority (Sec 28).


The State Information Commission is neither the State Government nor the competent authority.

It is time to file RTI application to SPIO, GIC and seek information as follows:

Information solicited:

1)Please provide me the copy of such stipulations in RTI Act, by which GIC is empowered to prescribe a format for second appeal.


I personally feel that it is suggestive / recommendatory in nature and can not be a mandate.



(as the format is in Gujarati, members not knowing Gujarati can not mark head and tail to understand their authority in bringing such directive if any)

      Is RTI my fundamental rights? Is there a chance that Government can take away my fundamental rights? What I mean is if there is a change in Government can a new Government take away my fundamental rights like Right to Information.

      In the past during CIC hearing when I insisted that action be taken against FAA, I was told that RTI Act does not have such provision.
      But in the light of RTI Rules 2012 can the prayer that "action be taken against FAA" be ignored?
      I am referring to rule 11(iv) and 11(vi) of the RTI Rules 2012.
      Please elaborate with CIC decisions/ High court judgements.
      Thanks and Regards.
