section (18) complaint PIO


Recommended Posts

file a RTI with office A which had transferred the RTI to office B under it. but no response received inspite of 50 days wait period.
if i had to file a complaint with SIC against PIO, should i put office A or Bs PIO or both?

also, what is the time  limit for section (18) complaint to be heard?
will it be heard on merit or is my presence required like second appeal

the process involved in filing first appeal with the next higher authority of the PIO of B office since application was transferred under section-6(3) but not A office , secondly the section-18 does not come into picture as appeals / complaints are filed under section -19 of RTI act

There is no use of complaint, if your focus is on getting information.  Now there is no different queue system for hearing of appeals and complaints separately. (The complaint should get immediate hearing opportunty)

There is no guarantee that IC penalizes any PIO.

Going for first appeal to B's FAA praying for condoning the delay and then going for second appeal seeking all remedies under RTI including information, penalty, recommendation for disciplinary action is proper.
