    Strange Decision by Uttarakhand Information Commission


    On a complaint under Section 18(1)(e) of the RTI Act-2005 with prayer for imposition of penalty under section 20(1) read with scetion 7(1) and section 20(2) the SIC has given an incongruent decision ignoring basic facts and grounds of the 2nd appeal, Can a review curative appeal be filed?

    A citizen has only the right to seek information alone, the citizen can not question the discretion of IC except by way of writ in High Court. Review is not possible by IC.

    Information Commissions do not have the power to review its own decisions, it can only correct clerical or arithmetical errors, therefore the only option available is to approach a High Court in WP.

    Could you pl. share the format for filing a Writ in High Court.

    What are your prayers for remedy through writ ?
    If it is action against PIO, you may not succeed as per Delhi HC Judgment.
    You can search website of your HC, as they might have uploaded such formats in their website.

    It is strange that every one is playing blind here and no one has called for the copy of the order of the commission and comments are being made just on the basis of the statement. Mr. N.K. Aggarwal is requested to post copy of the order here.

    In the meanwhile members are requested to see the provision of Section 19(9) which provides for an "Additional Appeal". This can be construed as an type of "Review" or "Curative" action to set right the wrong committed, perhaps!!

    SECTION 19(9)
    The Central Information Commission or State Information Commission, as the case may be, shall give notice
    of its decision, including any right of appeal, to the complainant and the public authority.

    Sir,
    So far any such precedent by any Information Commission on such reviews, and informing further right to appeal ?
    I have seen several posts in this forum wherein CIC has refused to review the decisions quoting Delhi HC Judgment.
