Re: appellant presence during 1st or 2nd Appeal not nessessary.
CIC / SIC are the backbone of the RTI Act. I am happy that despite the corrupt system, and difficult CIC / SIC the RTI Act has created waves in our country. The Act in itself is so simple and powerful.
But I feel that if we can somehow manage to persuade /pressurize or do something to get eminent, intellectual, honest persons to this posts, I can see a great future for this Act and our country.
I am sure the day is not far away.
