Dear N K Agarwal,
I am reproducing my Para 9. It is very clear and I myself made contradictory statement. That what ever Mr. Wajahat habbibullah has said it will be difficult for the Appellant to satisfy PIO and FAA. So, the conclusion is that if we can't say it is not possible but we can say it will be next to impossible. Still we have not gone through such a decision that CIC had made in favour of Appellant.
9. Though Chief Information Commissioner Mr. Wajahat Habbibullah says that he is very clear that when there is a direct conflict between the OSA and RTI Act, it is the RTI which prevails. The OSA cannot be used in a manner in which it is inconsistent with provisions of the RTI Act. Though it is but we are sure that in practice it will be difficult to satisfy the PIO or FAA to seek ACR information .
Though it is a good move. If Mr. Habbibullah has having this opinion then why not the decision are being made in favour of the Appellant. The formula Man Proposes????????????disposes. Now we should come to the conclusion and the stress should be made with the help of discussion how to implement of RTI Act to get the vital information. With the disclosure of ACR most of our friends will be benefited. As you are an experienced RTI Activist your suggestions to improvement and the way out to get ACR will be highly solicited. Till date I could not find any such formula to extract the ACR informations.
