As far as TN info. commission is concerned, there are no audience during hearing. But accompanying person is permitted as I have accompanied my father, when one of his appeals was being heard.

Don't know about first appeal, but second appeals in the SIC and CIC are supposed to be pronounced in "open".

Therefore anyone can go and attend a hearing as an observer.

Some ICs ask for the observer to just submit a written application before allowing them to sit. (Actually the staff asks for it - Have never been asked by a IC).

 

Observer can only observe and cannot speak.

 

Assistance is allowed during both First and Second appeals.

 

Representation is also allowed during both first and second appeals with a letter from the appellant authorising the person to represent him. The representative can argue the matter on behalf of the appellant.

The SIC, Kerala hold its hearings IN CAMERA. No one other than the appellant is allowed anywhere near the closed door hearing. Of cource this is against laws of this land. But everything is allowed in Cucumber City and Kansiram's Palton.

Colnrkurup sir, please see Item 8 of Kerala Appeal Procedure Rules (notified in Gazette):

The SIC just does not obey these Rules. We know how they are not abiding with other provisions on Notice also. When the issue of hearing audi alteram partem was appealed blaming the PIO of SIC as a liar, the FAA dismissed with two line reply to the effect that she has nothing more to add to what the PIO has said. In case I go for second appeal, it will be added to my other cases pending since more than 3 years. If I file a writ petition before the HC, it will not come up for hearing in next 5 years. Really I am lost.

      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.
