I note that the Public Authority had booked an advocate, funded from public funds, to defend the CPIO. What happened to the observation of Punjab & Haryana High Court asking the CPIO, if penalised, to approach the court in his personal capacity? Check link for news story

I argued this matter for CIC in the division bench. I think the negative attitude of the CJ of DHC is more to blame. At one point he said govt would have got the penalty amount of 25000 and now they are getting only 5000. if govt is not worried, why is the CIC worried. I told him it is not about the money, but the deterrent effect that penalty has on PIOs that is important.

Anyway, CIC has so far decided not to challenge this in SC.
