Example - How CPIO avoid to provide information?


Recommended Posts


Appellant had sought information about action taken report on his father's complaint. CPIO denied u/s 8(1)(e). FAA directed the CPIO to follow procedure u/s 11. CPIO asked to the father of appellant about consent. Appellant's father gave his consent to provide information. But again the CPIO denied it u/s 8(a) stating that information relates to National Security.


Commission observed that; in providing the substance of inquiry, the allegation therein, its outcome and action taken, if any, do not impact National Security and directed the CPIO to provide the required information.


My question is why CIC even did not warn the CPIO? This is clear and fit case for imposing penalty but Commission remained silence. This is the main reason why offices of SICs/CICs are filled up with second appeals.

Exactly Manoj sir! this is real situtation of Sic and cic! Even after the directions of Sic learned spio s dont provide information and most of people in commission dont check whether the spios hv shown compliance to directions of commission or not? even in certain appeals where action against spio is desirable under 20(1)(2) hon'ble commissioners dont recomend such action!
