Re: [HumJanenge] Mah SIC wants state to limit RTI pleas

The real remedy to prevent more nos. of appeals to be filed is, to impose fines in all cases where information is denied by the Public Information Officer. Law should be amended to impose fine on 1st Appelate Authority also, if he did not order the PIO  to give the information, and the applicant has to file 2nd appeal
