Dear Jeevan,

You will appreciate that CIC is not having all the information of all the public authorities. The role of CIC is just to ensure that the applicant bonafide request is address by the CPIOs.

In no judgement of CIC, information is provided only direction to CPIOs for providing information within a precribed time perios is provided.

It will also not make any economic sense of collecting and aggrgating information at one place with CIC. The information is always with the Public authorities which in turn dissemenated it.

Dear Sir,

 

I want to know if no reply is received from CPIO, can we directly write to Central Chief information commission, complaining the facts of non receipt of reply within the stipulated time.

 

Regards

 

Raj

Dear Sir,

 

Please do inform as to whether we can we directly approach the CIC, if no reply is received from the CPIO concerned on expiry of the stipulated time. If so whether it should be in the form of a complaint on the concerned CPIO or an appeal Please clalrify.

Yes. You may complain. Please read Sections 18(b) and 7(2) of the Right to Information Act 2005. However it is advisable to prefer a first appeal under Section 19(1) of the Act before preferring a complaint. After all you are loosing only one more month whereas it might take more than 6 months for the CIC to respond.

i think one can approach the CIC directly.

 

e.g. 1; in case any PA has not appionted the PIO nor he has appointed any AA then in such a case, the CIC can be approached.

 

e.g. 2; in case one has filed his RTI application and he does not want to wait for 30 days, he can approach the CIC directly after 48 hours (if in case he sucessfully proves that his demand for information relates to his life or libertly or both)

 

and there can be n no. of situations where we can approach the CIC directly

It is advisable to approach First Appellate Authority and then appeal/complain to CIC. If FAA is bypassed, CIC normally orders appellant to first approach FAA. Avoid going to CIC/SICs except as a last resort only, as U may not get justice or get it delayed by 10-12 months. Performance of CIC and most of SICs is much less than desirable. They are killing RTI spirit. People will be forced to "manage" to get the info as they were doing in pre-RTI times. U may visit my blogs on complaint and also how to file complaint/second appeal with CIC
