Re: Implementation of CIC decision
When you are invoking the RTI Act as a citizen, it automatically means that like any other citizen, the facility to inspect the records is available to you at your own cost and time. In the instant case you happen to be an employee of BSNL and the PIO happens to a superior officer of your own employer. It does not mean that your PIO is deputing you to inspect the records at various places, because you are not discharging any official work of your employer in that process. Hence there is no scope for you to claim TA/DA for such inspection of documents, since they are not part of your official duties.
