    In case any one of us attending the above conference, I suggest that following aspects be got clarified:
    (a) Why can't such sessions be conducted through CIC's web site so that rest of the 'WE THE PEOPLE OF INDIA" can also participate
    (b) In view of explicit provisions of Section 19(5) of the RTI Act what is the necessity of calling the appellant for hearing ?
    (c) What action taken on the observations of non-maintainabiility aspect of CIC's (Management) Regulation raised by various forums ?
    (d) What is the cource of action other than judiciary available to a cityzen against non-performance or dismal performance by the Commission especialluy the SICs
    (e) The RTI Act envisage accountability to everyone except the Commission. Why the Commission is not made accountable at all ?
    (f) Section 20 on penalty is very specific. As per this Section Penalty ' SHALL' be impossed. It is not at the descretion of the Commission. What is the clarification of the Commission ?
    (g) Is a First Appeal under Section 19(1) BAR a complaint under 18(1) to the Commission ?
    (h) Has the Commission any power to order the Sub Divisional Officer (RDO) not to abide with Section 5(2) of the Act ?
    (i) As per RTI Act has the CIC anyjurisdiction over the SICs ?

    Vijendra,

    This post was made on 9th January 2008 for a event to be held on 14th January 2008. There is nothing wrong with the date.

    But, I have realised that most of these events are jumboorees with the organisers trying to get some "photo-ops" and a few lines of "media space".
    I have been to only one in Hyderabad - walking out within an hour and vowing not to go to another one again.

    Every week, our guys dig up some old thread from the news/events section and try to resurrect it with a religious fervour. Is there any reduction in the current news feeds that we are providing?
