A loop hole in RTI Act for PIO to run .



Several application of RTI have been filed. 95 % of application have reached to second appeal but non of them has been impose fine by either CIC/SIC. PIO doesn't provide information on time. Most of time PIO get information from CIC/SIC that second appeal has been filed thus PIO send incomplete information by registered post before hearing. These tac-tic have been used now a days. And on hearing date PIO produce that information was given by registered post. After arguing by CIC/SIC and full evidence CIC/SIC doesn't impose fine simply order that information should be given in ..... Days. This make PIO strong that even after second appeal we doesn't have to bother. Now at present same thing has been happened for my second appeal. Somebody from CIC/SIC department have given information of fileing my 2 appeal and the PIO has sent me incomplete information by registered post. Please suggest what steps I have to take next before and on hearing. Thanks

The citizen has the right to seek information only, and the rest is left between PIO and SIC.

The duty of a citizen is using first appeal and second appeal only and making representation to CIC.

Represent material facts to IC and seek information.

These are not loopholes and in fact, no PIO is caring for RTI sincere implementation.

The penalty is left to the discretion of IC killing the spirit of RTI Act and the act is just a paper tiger. which PIO can just blow with his breadth.
