    Write separate letter to FAA for not directing to follow the stipulations in RTI Act and that when a law officer is not knowing fundamentals what is his public authority and who is the other authority after 14 years of enactment shows lack of sincerity at various levels and ask him to direct PIOs on such transfers under 6 (3). Wait for a response and enclose this to second appeal. If you want you can file RTI Application to FAA as to the status of your letter on functioning of PIO.

    Definitely you can first bring this to attention of FAA first and then in second appeal as deliberate and malafide. If the PIO is ordinary officer it is different, but here in this case he is law officer and supposed to know fundamentals in RTI.

    Inspection is one form of seeking information, and the applicant must specifically state that form i.e in the means of letter, certified copies, xerox copies, inspection etc., File fresh application seeking inspection and always avoid doubtful denials/rejections. In case of no response from PIO within stipulated 30 days, the applicant should go for first appeal on deemed denial, and if he is not satisfied with that information provided after such appeal, then addendum can be filed. I am not getting your point on last sentence. Please do not send personal messages on regular queries and always seek guidance through forum, as you can receive response from many experts in the forum, and the guidance sought by you helps many members that may face similar situation. The purpose of the forum is not to guide single member but guidance should help many members. Replying to personal messages is against discipline of the forum, and I do not wish warnings from ADM. What I have feared happened as I could not reply from my messager and the option is deleted/removed from my replies.

    An applicant is having right to information alone, and the penalty is in between the PIO and IC and appellant has no role to play. That penalty can never come to appellant as wrongly perceived. Insisting for imposition of penalty may spoil the relations, when one expects smooth relations without hurting. It is very difficult to establish deliberate denial with fraudulent motives by PIO.

    Do not get distracted from query: 1)Please provide that part of the copy of record/statute /Circular/order/rule that states the number of deputy chief ministers that can be appointed in a state PIO Reply: this information is not available with their office Issue: If that information is not available in his office, is it not his duty to send the application to the concerned authority with whom the information is available under Sec. 6 (3) Simple information is that there is no such stipulation restriting total number of Deputy chief ministers to be appointed and it depends on discretion of CM (All this is only for academic interest, as Shri Saapataskhar has clarified that it depends on CM discretion, and they are not entitled to any special benefits. Atleast after hearing, you can educate facts to them so that they may provide correct information for future queries)

    Hearing in First Appeal is not mandatory. In Case No. CIC/AD/A/2013/000875-SA, orderes delivered on 14.6.2014 it is observed that there is not a whisper about hearing by FAA in RTI Act, 2005. There is also no provision under the Act to prescribe procedures with regard to the manner in which FAA has to conduct & decide the First Appeal. It is also mentioned in that Order that it is duty of the FAA to consider written appeal of the Appellant even if he is not present on the date of hearing and decide on the basis of the material available. Even appearance before the Second Appellate Authority i.e. SIC is not mandatory, as per State Information Commissioner(Appeal Rules), 2005 (Section 7 of the R.T.I. Rules) (Central Act 22 of 2005) ..

    As to how many Deputy Chief Ministers should be appointed, it is the prerogative of the C.M.. In Andhra Pradesh, the C.M. has appointed 5 Deputy Chief Ministers & in Telangana 2 Dy. C.Ms. When State was integrated, there was no Dy. C.M. for most of the period... Court has fixed the limits for Ministers in the Cabinet i.e. 10% of the Legislatures including C.M., but there is no restriction of Dy. C.M.. There is no change of salary and perks of Ministers and Deputy Chief Ministers. Hence the question of waste of public exchequer also may not arise..This is nothing but an attempt to please the disgruntle MLAs to keep the folk together. Politicians in power should have the sense of economics of the State so that public taxes may not be wasted. Hope good sense will prevail upon them one day or the other.
