Delhi High Court fines CVC and its CPIO for delay in providing information


Recommended Posts


You will perhaps not believe it but recently Delhi High Court has imposed fine of Rs. 22,500/= on CPIO in CVC for 90 days delay in providing the information to an applicant under RTI Act. Read the judgement.


In addition to the above, CVC as respondent, has been ordered to pay Rs. 30,000/= as compensation to the petitioner who had to approach the High Court to seek justice against the delay in providing information by CVC.


High Court has imposed the fine itself as it agreed with the petitioner that if the matter again goes to the CIC only for the purpose of determining what should be the penalty and the compensation payble by the CVC, it would needlessly delay the matter further.


This is a very interesting case. By reading the judgement you will see how IOCL, CVO, CVC and unintentionally CIC have acted chor-chor mausere bhai.
