[rti_india] And IC MA aspires to be the CIC....


IC MA shouts from every roof top (besides during hearings, in oublic fora as well as in his orders) that RTI is not meant for "grievance redressal".

However when it comes to letting PIO's off the hook, nothing stops him from using the same "grievance redressal" excuse.


The appellant expressed satisfaction in respect of the action taken and in providing information asked for by him, which relate to redressal of grievances of the appellant, an employee of the respondent. Since the matter relates to redressal of grievances and that the respondent have taken appropriate action in this regard, the penalty proceedings is, therefore, dropped and the case is closed.

NOTE: This was after a show cause notice was issued and the hearing for imposing penalty was going on !

The aspiring CIC should know that Sec 20(1) does not mention any such grounds for dropping penalty proceedings.
