    PIO can use services of an APIO to transmit the former's decision: CIC


    The Central Information Commission in one of the recent decision had held that APIO can transmit the PIO decision on the application for information through the APIO.

    The CIC said
    We agree with the appellant that in the normal course an applicant for information has a right to receive the reply from the PIO and the PIO only.

    We, however, see no legal difficulty in the PIO using the services of an APIO to transmit the former’s decision on the application for information through the APIO. In our understanding, this will not lead to any miscarriage of justice or place undue restriction on an information seeker’s rights under the RTI Act.

    We, however, like to caution that any order issued by a APIO on behalf of PIO must clearly state that the former was only transmitting the orders of latter and should also state the name and the designation of the PIO on whose behalf the APIO might be acting.

    This will enable the information seeker to bring against the PIO any charge of delay etc. if that happens to be the case.
    This means that an information seeker if applies for information through APIO under RTI Act can get the information from APIO and not from PIO.

    The decision of the CIC is attached here for reference. The main discussion thread for the issue is here and was originally reported by karira in the post.
