I have experienced that PIOs often don't give specific reply to pertinent question. it entails further request of information and fees as well. It necessarily means more loss of time and money till we get specific reply or further appeal with similar results. Can we effectively get rid of this?
You are absolutely corect. Remember! Rome is not built in a day. Compare this with the cituation prevailed before 13 October 2005. In those days the reply was "Official Secrets Acts". Now at least we have broken the ice. If we succedin fighting it out together we are likely toget over the problem early. Keep on trying irrespective of various tactics usedbny PIOs and AAs
