Downloads: A new file has been added by ambrish.p:


Appellate Authority under RTI Act can issue


Appellate authority under RTI Act can issue direction to such public authority to take any of those steps as are suitable to coerce the persons having information to abide by directions issued under the RTI Act


In paragraph 44, this Full Bench of Delhi High Court,

from the preamble of the RTI Act, also notes that it is passed

because 'democracy requires an informed citizenry and

transparency of information which are vital to its functioning and

also to contain corruption and hold Governments and their

instrumentalities accountable to the governed'. It restricts the

right to information to citizens vide Section 3. Citizen seeking


information need not give any reasons for such

information need not give any reasons for such demand & there

is no requirement of scrutiny into his locus standi. I find that

when the procedure to exercise the right to information is

statutorily prescribed & its breach is to be redressed exclusively

by the “forums” created thereunder, the “execution” of such

adjudicated entitlement against unwilling establishment by

invoking all available legal avenues is the deliberate measure &

an integral part of the scheme of RTI Act
