    penalty is mandatory ?? ? ??

    disciplinary action under Section 20 (2) rti penalty is mandatory ?? ? ??
  2. Dear members (1). An appeal u/s 19(3) allowed and penalty(u/s 20(1) ) recovered and compensation( u/s 19(8)(b) ) was also paid. (2). The PIO had not complied the directions of the commission to furnish the information within 30 days. (3). For non-compliance of furnishing information disciplinary action u/s 20(2) recommended. (4). The appeal pending for compliance report to be filed by the authority and furnishing of information. (5). The PIO influential and so disciplinary action recommended not implemented and information sought is not yet issued by PIO. (6). What steps the RTI applicant should follow, now? as information not yet issued. (7). What is the procedure left for commissioner to ensure compliance of his recommendation of disciplinary action. Please post any Hon'ble High court /Supreme court decisions or the steps taken by any other SIC/CIC in such circumstances the learned members had come across.
  3. In a recent order, CIC has imposed the maximum penalty and also recommended disciplinary action on the PIO for misleading the commission. Full order is attached to this post. Further, Commission notes that Shri Rajinder Prasad Dagar was present for the hearing on 21 May 2013 and made false and misleading statements before the Commission which are recorded in order of even number dated 21 May 2013 in para 6 of the order. Shri RP Dagar falsely stated that he is in no way connected with the case whereas in fact it is Shri RP Dagar who has signed the original note dated 18 October 2012 which was forwarded to the appellant by the CPIO as noted above. It is also observed that Shri Rajinder Prasad Dagar signed his name as Rajinder (the word Prasad is not clearly written) even on the attendance sheet of the Commission on 21 May 2013 with a view to concealing his true identity and to mislead the Commission as his name could not be properly noted in the Commission’s order of that date.

  4. In a rare order, the CIC has recommended disciplinary action under Sec 20(2) against FAA of the NCPCR (National Commission for Protection of Child Rights), for repeatedly ignoring the order of the CIC for 14 months: 3. Appellant preferred appeal dated 24 February 2012 before the first appellate authority. On not receiving any response from the first appellate authority, appellant preferred second appeal before the Commission. Accordingly Commission remanded the matter back to the first appellate authority vide order dated 2 August 2012 with directions to dispose of the first appeal by passing a speaking order within two weeks of receipt of the Commission’s order. Also the first appellate authority was directed to endorse a copy of his order to the Commission clearly indicating the reason for delay if any in disposing of the first appeal. 4. Not receiving a response from the first appellate authority, appellant once again moved the Commission in complaint. 5. Matter was heard today. Appellant was heard via videoconferencing from Rewa. First appellate authority appeared in person. Appellant states that he is the paternal uncle of the child and that along with his first appeal he had enclosed consent letter from the parents of the child stating that they had no objection if the requested information was passed on to the appellant. In spite of that, the first appellate authority had not provided any information whatsoever to him. 6. First appellate authority states that subject matter of the RTI application pertains to the denial of admission in nursery class of Jyoti school, Rewa to MsKatyani. Shri B K Basu, in his explanation states that due to acute shortage of staff he was unable to provide information to the appellant/respond to him. Also that the delay was not intentional and that he was overburdened with administrative, legal and court matters without the support of a regular branch officer as also on account of coping with a large number of RTI applications. Shri Sahu has also provided an unsigned note on the current status of the complaint which is the subject matter of the RTI application to the Commission but states that a copy of the same has not been provided to the appellant. Decision notice 7. We have heard the submissions made by the first appellate authority. Shortage of staff and preoccupation with other matters are not legitimate or acceptable reasons for not having adhered to the provisions of the RTI Act which enjoins upon the first appellate authority under sections 19 (1) and 19 (6) of the Act to dispose of the matter within a period of 45 days from the date of filing of the appeal. In this case not only did the first appellate authority ignore these provisions by not disposing of the matter within this time frame but also chose to ignore the directions of the Commission in order dated 2 August 2012. Today also Shri Sahu has appeared before the Commission only to state that he has so far not provided any information to the appellant. This repeated violation of the Act for over 14 months is a serious matter and attracts the provisions of section 20 (2) of the Act. The officer has persistently failed to discharge his duties as prescribed under the Act and therefore Commission recommends to the disciplinary authority to take action against Shri Sahu as per the service rules applicable to him. Shri Sahu is warned to be more careful in future while discharging his responsibilities the onus of which have been placed upon him in the transparency Act. 8. First appellate authority will provide full and complete information as sought by the appellant to him within one week of receipt of the order. 9. Through the powers vested in this Commission vide Sec. 19(8)(a), we require the public authority through its Secretary to take appropriate steps to strengthen the infrastructure for implementing the RTI regime. A copy of this order is also marked to the Chairperson of NCPCR. Disciplinary action recommended on FAA.pdf
  5. The CIC has recommended disciplinary action against the PIO of Trade Marks & patents for repeated denial of information. Clearly, the Respondent CPIO has without any reasonable cause and persistently failed to provide information on various occasions, including the present case, under the RTI Act. The Commission is of the view that instead of levying any further penalty under Section 20 (1) of the RTI Act, it is better to recommend disciplinary action against the Respondent CPIO under the service rules applicable to her, in accordance with Section 20 (2) of the RTI Act. Therefore, disciplinary action against Mrs. Prem Lata, Assistant Registrar & CPIO, O/o Trade Marks Registry, Intellectual Property Office, New Delhi is recommended under section 20 (2) of the Right to Information Act, 2005. The Head of the Public Authority and the Controller General of Patents, Designs, & Trade Marks, Mumbai will initiate such action under the Service Rules applicable to her. Disciplinary action recommended for persistent deniasl of info.pdf
  6. In a recent order, CIC has recommended Disciplinary Action against the FAA of MCD. The FAA failed to conduct a hearing and pass orders in spite of specific directions of the CIC, within the mandated time limit of 30 days or maximum 45 days. The CIC ordered: http://cic.gov.in/CIC-Orders/SG-22022010-03.pdf The First Appellate Authority Mr. Krishan Kumar has provided no reasons for not having done his duty specified under the Act. His submission infact show that he does not appear to have any understanding of the duty cast upon him by Section 19(6) of the RTI Act which states that he shall dispose the first appeal with in 30 days. It is thus apparent that Mr. Krishan Kumar, Dy. Commissioner and First Appellate Authority has refused to do his duty under the RTI Act and has no reasons or explanation for this. All public officers are expected to do their duties as mandated by law and this is not a matter in which an officer can decide how he will discharge his duties. In view of this the Commission recommends to the Municipal Commissioner that appropriate disciplinary should be initiated against Mr. Krishan Kumar for dereliction of his duty as First Appellate Authority. The Municipal Commissioner is directed to inform the Commission about the action initiated against Mr. Krishan Kumar before 20 April 2010.
  7. As reported at timesofindia.indiatimes.com on 19 August 2009 PATNA: The State Information Commission (SIC) on Tuesday directed Madhubani district magistrate (DM) to take disciplinary action against district additional collector for not depositing the fine amount and not providing information to an applicant as directed by the commission earlier. The SIC also directed the DM to deduct the fine amount from the salary of erring official and inform the commission about it when the case would be taken on the next date of hearing on October 6. The erring additional collector had failed to provide relevant information to one Vishnudeo Bhandari who had sought certain information using the Right to Information (RTI) Act. Finding the additional collector on the wrong side of the Act, the SIC had imposed fine on him. In a separate case, the commission imposed fine on the water resource department chief engineer, Samastipur, for not providing information to one Girjananda Choudhary, the applicant. The chief engineer would have to cough up fine at the rate of Rs 250 per day with Rs 25,000 being the fine upper limit. The case would be taken up for next hearing on October 1.

  8. As reported at www.hindustantimes.com on 20 May 2009 You want information, right? So you exercise your democratic due and file an application under the Right to Information (RTI). And then your question is swallowed by the blank spaces of government registers. Two Labour Department officers were pulled up by the Central Information Commission (CIC) for precisely one such disappearing act. Mohammad Farruddin, a trade union leader, had sought information from the Labour Department. When Farruddin did not get the answer to his query, he approached the CIC, the body constituted to address complaints regarding the RTI. CIC officials went through the dispatch registers of the office and found the information had been marked as sent. But Farruddin had clearly not received any information. Where then was the answer? The solution to this puzzle lay in 13 lines which the CIC officials found left blank in another register. It was then CIC connected the dots and realised the officials in-charge had been leaving space for backdated entries in the register. “The findings reveal a systematically designed process to ensure backdating of documents,” said Shailesh Gandhi, CIC commissioner. "Such a practice evidences intentional dishonesty on the part of the concerned public officials," said Gandhi, in an order last week. Farruddin had filed an appeal with the Labour department's appellate authority, which asked the public information officers V.S. Arya and Suhash Chandra, to provide the information. Farruddin checked with the local post office about mail from the department after the officials told him the information had been sent. He filed a second appeal with the CIC, which issued a notice to the department's information officers. Farruddin then received only part of the information sought. Gandhi then decided to conduct an inquiry and made the shocking findings. “The commission had the opportunity to peruse only some pages of one register from 2007-08 and even within that limited time, it came across thirteen blank lines. It is likely this insidious practice must not be restricted to just one register,” Gandhi observed in his order. The CIC imposed a fine of Rs 25,000 on each of the two officials and asked the Delhi chief secretary to initiate disciplinary action against them and recover the fine immediately. Many RTI activists have complained to CIC of not receiving information, despite information officers' claims that they were sent. “In most cases, one has to collect information personally as dispatches from government offices don't reach," said RTI activist S.C.

  9. In a recent order, IC PB has ruled that a question by an applicant relating to "procedure" is also information. http://cic.gov.in/CIC-Orders/PB-21082008-01.pdf No doubt, information available in a material form alone could be sought for disclosure. Yet when a question relates to a procedure, then, it cannot be said that the same is not available in a material form and the CPIO should explain the procedure. In the present case, the appellant had sought for the procedure to be followed in case of allegations of corruption. The CPIO should have given answers to these queries. In the same order, the IC further ruled: I must record my strong displeasure for the observation in the comments that strong action would be taken against the husband of the appellant as no such threat could be made in respect of information sought through an RTI application nor any action taken in pursuance to such a threat. The AA who has sent the comments should note this not only in the present case but also in future cases that no penal or disciplinary action shall be initiated against an information seeker in connection with his/her RTI application.
