    Recd. on: 24-08-2007
    Response:None
    First Appeal to: The CIC, West Bengal
    Mode of sending: DTDC Courier
    Date: 22nd September 2007

    2) To: The PIO, West Bengal Power Development Corporation
    (sent through the SIC, West Bengal)
    Mode of sending: Speed post
    Recd. by SIC on: 18-08-2007

    Firstly I am not sure why would you send the 1st appeal to CIC?

    And did you happen to read this FAQ here?

    I'm afraid I may have used a wrong abbreviation. However by CIC, West Bengal I meant State Chief Information Commission and I appealed him u/s 18(1)(c).

    I been informed by CIC now that all Appeal must be first endorsed by PIO and FAA before filing with CIC.

    This is making lot of inconvenience..

    In my opinion we must send only an intimation email or letter to PIO/FAA not that entire set of copy for PIO and one for FAA. Thats really weired...
    WDYT?

    the first appeal should go to the appeallant authority who is designated nodal officer under RTI act in the same borad/department where you have made your rti application. You will have to wait for 30 days according to sec7(1) of the act and further the SICs are insisting for additional 5 days for the postal transistion and then make your first appeal to the appeallant public information officer. if the information sought is of other department the PIO should forward your application to the right department, for which again 5 days are allowed.

    you can apporach the SIC only for the second appeal or for the reasons if the PIO has refused to accept application, has given a wrong information and so on.

    the time limit for making the 1st appeal is within 30 days from the date of the limitation as said above. in your case you still have time to make your first appeal.

    Not all PIOs truly accept courier in realty. it is always safe to send the information by RPAD/Speed post with AD for an authentic proof.

    I am talking about appeal with CIC after application then first appeal with FAA. (First two option already exercised.)

    In Delhi if FAA is not responding or the hearing is not satisfactory one goes directly to CIC.
