As per Sec.20 of RTI Act, Information commission has powers to take penal action against Public Information Officers or such deemed public information officers who assisted PIO in providing that information.  Mostly IC proceeds on facts filed in Second appeal and address mentioned by appellant in second appeal of PIO.

If, there is an error, applicant should immediately write to PIO pointing out the discrepancy and providing the correct address of PIO under copy to concerned PIO as early as possible.

What is that notice has to be specified.  Whether it is show cause notice or hearing notice, and based on PIOs submission before IC pointing out lapse of another officer who is concerned with that issue ?
