I am glad to become a member of RTI movement. I have several successes to my credit. I shall post the details in the next few days. Meanwhile I have a query relating to denial of information by the Appellate Authority, LIC of India, Zonal Office,
I asked the Information Office, LIC, New Delhi for details on insurance training programs conducted by certain agencies for its agents on the criteria of their selection, their standing infrastructure available with them, if any of these institutions were involved in disciplinary action by the LIC or IRDA, cost per candidate and details of the faculty, the resources available at command of the institution. The Information Officer denied the same for all the 10 points under Section 8 (i)(d) thereby showing a bias in favor of certain institution. The Appellate Authority supplied some information but denied the same on most of the points. At the end, he stated that if the applicant did not feel satisfied with his order, he may appeal within 30 days to him again.
My question is:
01. Whether Section 8(i)(d) can allow non-disclosure of information on the points above?
02. Whether the Appellate Authority can seek another appeal in respect to its own order on the first appeal?
I shall be grateful for clarifications.
