As Reported by Zee News July 22, 2008


New Delhi, July 22: The Central Information Commission (CIC) has

pulled up the MCD for not responding to a notice issued to it over a

petition seeking details on appointments made in the civic agency on

compassionate grounds.


"This Commission takes an adverse view of the MCD failing to respond

both to our appeal notice and summons for appearance in hearing,"

Central Information Commissioner Wajahat Habibullah said.


The Commission has decided to proceed with the hearing of a case

without the presence of MCD officials.


It's observation came while hearing a petition filed by Mahinder Kaur

of Haryana seeking information on MCD employees who were appointed on

the compassionate grounds.


She said that the full information has not been provided to her by MCD.


The Commission directed the MCD to give the petitioner information

pertaining to appointments made on compassionate grounds along with

the criteria adopted in the process.


The CIC also ordered the MCD to upload the information sought on its

website and kept it up-to-date every time such an appointment is made.


It asked the MCD to complete its updation within a period of 20 days.


The Commissioner ordered the Health Officer of the MCD to explain the

delay in furnishing the information and asked why a penalty of Rs

8,000 should not imposed on him.
