2.1 In view of the above, provisions of CPC could not be invoked for executing an order of CIC. Instead CIC has been empowered u/s 20(1) to impose penalty on the non-compliant Central PIO. Penalty leviable under this section is Rs.250 each day till the information is furnished to the applicant, subject to total penalty not exceeding Rs.25,000/-.
As so many members of forum informed me that my decision was in favour of me. It was proved by me in personal hearing that the PIO negligently not supplying the information in time. In view of provision in act if the CIC is not penalising the PIO`s how we expect effective implementation of RTI 2005. As mentioned eralier I am not suppose to react like this as this forum is for know how of RTI not for any activist activities. The similar problem existed in Advocates and Judiciary. It is my request to all the persons to react like a activist because knowledge of law is not difficult task but present the same to a person sitting on dias is very deifficult. The scope of information is so much vide in RTI 2005 but neither the executive nor CIC is interested to supply the information as asked by applicants. Please do not take other wise to my reactions as similar reactions I am sending so many times to Information Commissioners also. It is very hard to accept the governance of public to whom sitting behind red lights. In my opinion the act framed on a thirty years struggle must be implemented effectively. I hope that you will support to me.
