    Treat the RTI application as a complaint- rules CIC


    Treat the RTI application as complaint

    CIC has directed to treat the RTI application as a complaint which sought to know the action being taken against those who register agreement to sell/Release deed after 5.00 pm in Sub-­registrar office. When the applicant went to First Appellate Authority (FAA),  has held that the information sought seems to be in the nature of grievance and advised the Appellant to file a complaint so that the case would be investigated and brought to its logical end.


    The Commission however, recommended to the public authority Revenue Department, GNCTD to treat the RTI application itself as a complaint and after completion of the enquiry, the action taken report to be shared with the Appellant.

    The appellant filed RTI application dated 19­09­2012, whereby he sought information as to the a Registered Release Deed, Copy of Perpetual Lease etc. PIO replied on 18­10­2012. Being unsatisfied with the reply of PIO, the appellant preferred First Appeal. FAA by his order dated 06­03­2013 directed PIO to provide modified reply as to Point No. 4 to 8 and 13. Having not received the information, the appellant has approached the commission in Second Appeal.

    The Commission directed the PIO to comply with the order of the Appellate Authority within two weeks and also to show cause as to why penalty u/s 20(1) should not be imposed upon him for not complying with the order of the Appellate Authority.
