    1. But despite the said CIC decision, the SIC's in Maharashtra even as on today do allow second appeals pertaining to HC as a PA. 2. Moreover, it seems that in the said APHC decision, it has stayed the CIC decisions too!

    1. The first & second appeal is with respect to THE PIO and not A PIO, in other words no other PIO can appear on behalf of THE original (i.e. initial / first) PIO without his authorisation, And for the purpose of any contraventions under the RTI Act, it is the original PIO who is responsible and no other subsequent PIO who may be holding the designation of a PIO in the place of the original (i.e. initial / first) PIO can be held responsible for the same. Kindly bring this contravention to the notice of the SIC. 2. Kindly file a complaint under section 18 and pray the IC to invoke his powers under section 18(3)(a) to compel the attendance of the INITIAL PIO who is responsible for the purpose of contraventions under the RTI Act: 3. Also refer to the blogs on the following links: Non-Compliance of Orders of CIC or SICs Non-Compliance of Orders of CIC/SIC –Administrative Remedy.

    The first step would be to identify, which are the Public (Govt.) Authorities responsible for the subject matter? Once you have done that, you can file a RTI application with the Public Information Officer (PIO) of those Public Authorities to seek information about the subject matter.

    Kindly do not worry about the exemptions at the stage of filing a RTI application, as reasoned below: As per section 7(1): A PIO is supposed to either provide the information on payment of such fee as may be prescribed or reject the request for any of the reasons specified in sections 8 and 9. As per section 19(5): In any appeal proceedings, the onus to prove that a denial of a request was justified shall be on the PIO who denied the request. And furthermore as per section 6(2): An applicant making request for information shall not be required to give any reason for requesting the information or any other personal details except those that may be necessary for contacting him. Therefore given the provisions of section 7(1) read with section 19(5) and further read with section 6(2): The onus i.e. the burden of proof, for either providing or not providing the information is on the PIO who approves or declines a request for information, and, The onus is not on any RTI applicant to justify or give reasons for having sought an information, irrespective of whether such information is disclosable or exempt under RTI Act. Thus, for the above given reasons, you as a RTI applicant need worry about exemptions, at the stage of filing a RTI application itself. Kindly go ahead, file a RTI application and seek all the information that you may require, let the PIO decide as to whether the information is disclosable or exempt under RTI Act and reply accordingly, study the PIO's reply and if you are not satisfied with the PIO's response, you are always at the liberty to file a first appeal against a PIO's such a decision.

    Also, you may either try and Google search for a translator, or visit a nearby Court / High Court, and you will find them in and around the Court premises (people sitting with typewriters / computer desks / Xerox - Photocopying machines in the vicinity of Courts). You can employ their services, and they will do it for a very small charge. The reason being that, whenever one annexes any vernacular language documents in a petition before the Court, it is compulsory to file self-attested translations in English language along with it, and as such translations is matter of routine in court matters, and therefore this facility of translators subsists and is easily available in and around the Courts.
