Compliant against Central Information COmmissioner



To whom can I complain against central information commissioner for not imposing penalty against CPIO who responded after 100/200 days or did not respond at all?

Under RTI Act the only right a citizen is having is for information that is not exempted alone and for further appeals under RTI.

Imposing penalty against CPIO is absolute discretion of the Information Commissioner, a citizen has no right to demand for such penalty.

If the problem is with information writ is the final remedy against IC decision.   If for imposing penalty, HC may consider it but HC  can not take any action against IC.

Waiting since 14 years for correct interpretation of the penalty clause and if some one gets that imposing penalty  for violation  is mandatory to impose penalty, the enactment of RTI is most successful. 

No court accepts  suits on decisions/orders under RTI and all officials are immune under RTI for their legitimate actions taken in good faith.
