Ashneel Singh, PIO – cum – Panchayat Secretary, O/o BDPO, Nurpur Bedi for the significant delay in responding to the application.

Can IC impose lumpsum penalty, when Act stipulates per day penalty ?

I remember to have seen HC judgment that IC has to impose penalty as prescribed in Act only.

The Delhi High Court in case of Mr. -Dinesh Pande V/s C.I.C., New Delhi, observed that -----HOWEVER, ONCE THE COMMISSION CAME TO THE CONCLUSION  THAT THE PENALTY HAS TO BE IMPOSED, THEN THE SAME MUST BE @ 250/- per day AND NOT ANY OTHER RATE AT THE WHIMS AND FANCIES OF THE COMMISSION.

Now they are more smart, and stopped imposing penalties.  The latest statistics disclose that many State commissions have not even imposed even in one case in a year, and in other states it is very meager.   The commissions can be self sufficient and can earn if they judicially follow the laid down norms and impose penalties as per laid down law.
