    Exclamation 2nd Appeal with Gujarat Information Commission

    Going through the website of the latest decisions of the Gujarat Information Commission, I observed that a few of the latest Appeal Decisions posted on the website relate to RTI applications filed recently, as late as 17th/20th Feb, while the decisions are made on 24th/25th Feb:

    GIC - Gujarat Information Commission

    GIC - Gujarat Information Commission

    while the decisions only direct the FAA to hear the matter immediately and decide, and not even made after hearing the complainant and respondent, it makes me wonder as to what is the procedure as regards hearing of appeals. are they dealt chronologically / randomly?

    for a appeal filed by me on 15th Feb, when can I possibly hope for a hearing?

    any guidance will be highly appreciated

    Possibly GIC is remanding matters of direct complain to FAA without any deliberation on the case. So it may have felt that there is no need to keep such matters in the normal queue. It is quite possible that such orders are being drafted by some clerical staff (using copy-paste) and signed by the IC.

    is there any way of knowing the status of our second appeal with Gujarat Information Commission. It has been three months since I filed my second appeal, and I havent heard anything from GIC...

    If the applicant has filed first appeal and he does not get decision within 30 [or 45 days for reasons to be recorded], it should be presumed that FAA has declined prayer of the appellant. In such a situation there is no point in remanding back to FAA. If appellant is not satisfied with FAA decision, he will have to refile second appeal-waste of time, money and energy. In fact FAA should be pulled up by GIC for failure to take decision, instead the applicant is being penalised.

    It takes each of us to make difference for all of us.

    Unfortunately the only way is to file another RTI application to the PIO of GIC asking for the status of your second appeal.
