    Sorry, I could not understand his logic.
    Does he mean to say that no one can go to court, including Govt., if such decision is having flaws ?
    Why he is raising those issues known to all, and not consider those points against his decisions, even a common man has raised such objections of his transgressing endowed powers.

    Before a RTI applicant goes to any Court (for a RTI related matter), the case has to pass through something called a "Information Commission"

    If the Information Commissioners sitting in the Commission did their job properly, there would be NO NEED to approach a court !

    But, every IC can estimate with his experience either the appellant or CPIO is capable of going to Court or not, and he takes the weakness of the parties while imposing his decision.
    For example there are cases where appellant was fined Rs.1/- as fine by CIC, appellant thought that it is easy to suffer the decision rather than spending Rss50,000/- to feed the sharks.
