Question

In response to 2nd appeal the dept has provided misleading information: there are pages of information but they do not answer the query and are about a different area and the area name has been omitted .from the response.

I saw a 2016  post about making a complaint but I could not find more information on the process.

What should be done now? is there a time limit for filing complaint or any other action?

rgds,

naron

A very interesting query.  The ICs are too tired, too old and 99% never go through even Grounds of Appeal.

Some very smart authorities use tactful way of making a copy and paste, waste, not relevant, garbage and loads tonnes of it in more pages to give an impression to IC, they have taken lot of pains and still appellant is harassing them. (Hon Karira used to say, even one write Amzad Khan" dialogues in 'Sholay" they do not peep into facts).  Mostly PSUs where legal persons are designated as PIOs, they are aware of these tactics.

Can not help in such situations.  One has to learn the attitude and file applications issue wise and to seek information not more than 3 queries in one application and make it a point to seek inspection.

If the matter is important seek personal hearing and enclose Annexure also.

Grounds for Appeal:  CPIO has not provided correct, relevant and complete information and provided irrelevant mattter and the information provided is not as per public records and deliberately  incorrect. and misleading as stated in Annexure A.

Prayer: Appellant prays for personal hearing  and directions to CPIO to provide the information and for such penalty and recommendation for disciplinary action for deliberately providing incorrect information with a malafide motive of misleading.

Annexure A

What do you mean when you say that information has been provided in response to second appeal? Has the information been received against the SIC order in second appeal or has the information been received, merely on filing the second appeal and the hearing proceeding and SIC Order remains pending?

We are yet to receive order sheet. But this information came via a letter two days after hearing and had printout of email to SIC with case number as subject.

We only ask query about 1 subject in an RTI. So we have 2 more RTIs on the way to 2nd appeal. But now to avoid providing info on other RTIs this response references them all and just gives a bunch of pages making it look a bulky response

@Prasad

The funny thing is school kids are held to far greater accountability. So should'mt we change the law and impose penalties so that this does not happen?

In no other profession could you do this kind of thing and retain your job

The system is itself like that.  To get such law it has taken nearly 6 decades, and there is not sincerity in implementation, both citizens and designated officials are responsible for the sorry state, and ICs contributed for further deterioration of the objective.  

How shameful to get such rejections/denials to get CPIO after 16 years on those exemptions which attained finality at SC/HC/CIC decisions.  Even Govt may not be aware such lakhs of appeals pending in Commissions.  Only imposing penalties by ICs can bring back the lost glory of the Act.

This kind of misleading response has occured many times in the past although this is first time in 2nd appeal. A few examples|:

Based on the report from sub office dated: NIL there no entries for that period.

Name: XXX Address:95, NA, Blr-560001 Connection No:YYY

Area:   Boundaries:ZZZ

NIl, NA, blank all make the reply invalid since they do not identify anything
