    CIC direct Vice Chancellor to take action against Registrar Allahabad University


    rtiindia


    Registrar Allahabad UniversityIn yet another case of blatant disregard to RTI Act, Allahabad University Registrar has yet again made deliberate attempt to deny information to RTI Applicant. The Commission also observed during various hearings that the Registrar of the University who is designated as an Appellate Authority, does not respond to any of the appeals put up before him. In the light of his continued intransigence, the VC may like to initiate appropriate action against the Registrar.

    The CIC has recoded in the decision that "A copy of this order be marked to the Vice Chancellor, Allahabad University, Prof A.K.Singh with directions to ensure that the officials tasked with the responsibility of providing information under the RTI Act discharge their duties in accordance with the provisions of the Act. It seems that a deliberate attempt has been made in the instant case to deny information to the appellant, Shri Avinash Dube. The Commission also observed during various hearings that the Registrar of the University who is designated as an AA, does not respond to any of the appeals put up before him. In the light of his continued intransigence, the VC may like to initiate appropriate action against the Registrar. The Commission would like to have a report from the Vice Chancellor on the measures taken in regard to setting right the deficiencies observed in implementation of various provisions of the RTI Act, within thirty days from date of receipt of this order."

    Earlier Vide RTI dt 21.7.12, RTI Applicant had sought information on 3 points relating to purchase of utensils and chairs for 2010-11 for the hostels of Allahabad University. An appeal was filed on 14.2.13 as no information was provided. Appellant submitted that despite a lapse of over one and a half years, information sought has been deliberately denied to him. Moreover, the FAA Prof VP Singh has failed to hear his first appeal.

    CIC disposed of the appeal recording that "The Commission finds that various officials of the University are deliberately acting in a manner which is against the spirit of the RTI Act. " You should read the RTI Act Section 20 (2) in this reference which states

    "...recommend for disciplinary action against the Central 
    Public Information Officer
     or the State 
    Public Information Officer
    , as the case may be, under the service rules applicable to him."
