One of my friends submitted three diffrent RTI sapplications on 13.02.07, 10.05.07 and 24.05.07 on different subject matters and different queries. Again application dt 13.02 05 was written in Bengali script with three queries. on 10/05/07 there was four queries and was written in english script, whereas on 24/05/07 there was three queries and also written in Bengali script.
Part information was provided on 03.05.07 wrt application dt 13.02.07 .
On 08/10/07 as per ORDER of AA wrt application dt 10.05.07 It was mentioned -- It appears that the SPIO had sent information on 03.05.07. How a SPIO might sent reply of query dt 10/05/07 on a previous date of 03.05.07 that too on different subject matter and different set of queries and also written on diferent scripts ?
Once again wrt application 24/05/07 the same learned SPIO noted that information already sent on 08.10 07, in which lettr it was mentioned that ' information already sent on 03.05.07.
This is the way the same SPIO is dealing the RTI applications and providing misleading incorrect and evasive reply and avoiding punishment.
How long it will be continued and what is the remedy ?
Really there must be some punishment for such harrassing activities. RTI is not only the work of human being but this is a work of GOD and officers creating hurdles in this actually creating hurdle in the work of GOD.
Did you friend appeal for "incorrect", "misleading" and "deemed" refusal of information ?
Another ground for appeal could have been that they have answered in a different language than the language in the application.
In one of the pleas during First Appeal, he should have asked for "medical" examination of the PIO.
As per Section 17(3)(e), the Governor can even remove a SCIC or a SIC because he is "unfit to continue in office by reason of infirmity of mind or body". The First AA should have been asked to apply the same criteria for the PIO.
