PIO - no reply to RTI s


Recommended Posts


how do we handle a Govt PIO office in tamilnadu contiuously rejects/who igores RTI or transfres it to a diff dept citing some reaons to shrug it of..

this PIO is of the attitude that he is not bothered about first appeal/second appeal that takes years to clear given the backlog.

what options do we as a public have on this?

can we take this to Dept of Personal Training as a complaint or write to State Info Commission?

The procedure as stipulated in RTI Act has to be followed in case of such denial / deemed denial of information individually application wise.

It is not possible to file a consolidated complaint against PIOs.

Each application has to be dragged to second appeal.

In every second appeal, appellant may discuss such denials in the past as passing remark.

It is left to IC to consider or not consider the prayer and past conduct of such PIO.

Now, the standard and knowledge of PIO is measured by FAA on the merit of his denials, the more denials, the more knowledge of him on RTI. Infact authorities encourage and treat PIOs more kindly for safeguarding the interest of their dept., through this denials.
