Re: 61 per cent dip in penalties imposed by CIC: Govt in Lok Sabha (Delhi)
It appears on record that all PIOs are honest in performing their duties, and they are prompt in performing their statutory obligations. The implementation level is superb in the country as there are just 54 of penalty cases in entire country for one year.
Even now, after a decade, there is no initiative to centralize the state information commission's data. Good Governance.
