Re: Can I directly approach the CIC for relief?
It is advisable to approach First Appellate Authority and then appeal/complain to CIC. If FAA is bypassed, CIC normally orders appellant to first approach FAA. Avoid going to CIC/SICs except as a last resort only, as U may not get justice or get it delayed by 10-12 months. Performance of CIC and most of SICs is much less than desirable. They are killing RTI spirit. People will be forced to "manage" to get the info as they were doing in pre-RTI times. U may visit my blogs on complaint and also how to file complaint/second appeal with CIC
It takes each of us to make difference for all of us.
