[rti_india] Re: Directions of AA or PIO


Dear Sh.Anuragji,

UNFORTUNATELY,ENTIRE PUBLIC IS AT THE MERCY OF VERY NEGLECTED/BAISED DECISIONS OF APPELLATE AUTHORITY OF ALL DEPTTS BY OPENLY FLOUTING RTI ACT. Most of the decisions are being given by PIO himself justifying PIO stand on the issue/ In few cases,hearing is conducted by calling appellant without ensuring PIO comments of first appeal at least one week before first appeal hearing.
Reproduced below para 38 of Guidelines for the Officers designated as first appellate authority under the RTI Act, 2005 issued by DoPT Dated the 25th April, 2008

With regards
Manoj K.Kamra

Disposal of Appeal as per DoPT circular para 38-NO.1/3/2008-IR
Government of India,Ministry of Personnel, P.G. and Pensions
Department of Personnel & Training

38. Deciding appeals under the RTI Act is a quasi-judicial function. It is,therefore, necessary that the appellate authority should see to it that the justice is not only done but it should also appear to have been done. In order to do so, the order passed by the appellate authority should be a speaking order giving justification for the decision arrived at.

Whether he can direct the PIO to provide information at the end of 45days to direct the PIO to provide information or AA can direct to provide to provide information  within 30 days  at the end of the time of 45 days at the disposal of e AA. Or AA  can provide information himself  information before 45 days of the appeal. I am confused.
