Can a FAA combine 3-4 different appeals by one appellant for disposing as fees are paid individually



One First Appellate Authority of Orissa State council for Technical Education & Vocational Training, Orissa was sent 4 different appeals for 4 different RTI applications not being provided to the appellant; was disposed up by saying that the appellant didn't turn up after 3 letters of summons .

Is it right on the part of First Appellate Authority to act in such a manner?

Can it be sent to the State Information Commission and will have merit ?

If the First Appellate Authority will be fined as per procedure ?

1. Yes he can decide 4 (or more) first appeals from the same appellant - as long as he addresses all the prayers in each of the first appeals.

2. It is the appellants choice whether to attend a hearing or not. If the appellant did not attend the hearing, the FAA should have disposed off the matter based on records available with him.

3. Did the order address the prayers that you raised in your first appeal ?

If yes, and if you are not satisfied, then you can file second appeal with the SIC.

If no, then also you cxan file a second appeal with SIC.


Please file 4 separate second appeals with the SIC. One each for each RTI application.
