Can I sue PIO for not sending communication by registered post?

Recommended Posts

I asked PMC Engineer for some information. On RTI application, I clearly mentioned that I require reply by registered post. I did not receive any reply for a month. I filed first appeal and today had the hearing in PMC office. The Appeal officer seemed to be a good friend of the PIO. I told the appeal officer that I did not receive any communication from PIO. To which, PIO said that wrt my RTI application, he replied back (by normal post) that I need to pay some amount for photocopying documents. Fine. But this reply never reached me. They just made some entry in their outward reply that it was sent. No postal proof. When I asked the appeal officer, he said it is not required that the PIO replies by registered post. I feel this is not right. Appeal officer also said I could appeal to SIC about this.

So I need your opinion, can I appeal against the PIO for not sending communication through registered post? Any chances PIO will be punished? (I have no enemity with the PIO, but I know the PMC officials are extremely careless. That’s why I want to take this step).

Any remedy under RTI Act is as per stipulations in RTI Act.

Contact Advocate, even without RTI, there are hundreds of way to sue him but never on RTI.

RTI never stipulated communication to applicant by PIO, but kept burden of proof on him.

You can write to Superior authority, bringing his attention IC SG CIC Decision.

Let us not worry and spend time on petty things. We can not change all people. We can only tell them which is law and beneficial.

As per Delhi High Court Judgment an appellant is not concerned with penalty, and he is concerned with information alone. The issue of such penalty is between IC and Public Authority.

FAA has never any powers under RTI for imposing penalty.

Sending through ordinary post is not a violation of RTI Act.

Deliberate and malafide delay and denial are alone the reasons for imposing penalty.

      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.
