Recommended Posts

In a recent decision, the CIC agreed to compensate a appelant a compensation of Rs 500/- because:


Commission has been in violation of provision of the RTI

Act 2005 in notifying parties of the date of hearing which necessitated

adjournment. The appellant Maj. Ravindran is, therefore, entitled to

compensation. The demand for Rs. 500/- can indeed be deemed

reasonable. This amount will be paid by the Commission


In the same decision, the Registrar of the Delhi High Court has confirmed that the fee has been rationalized from Rs 500/- to a more reasonable Rs. 50/-.
