resolve the issue in judiciary when the RTI Act has no such provision enabling the SIC to give such direction.
The SIC, in his orders CP No.740/2007/SIC dated 29-3-2008 has ruled that
" RTI Act 2005 does not envisage including request for information made in the form information/ interpretations/
The SIC adds that the Commission was constrained to observe that many of the comments of the complainant fell in the categories as mentioned above which under no circumstances any public authority would have been able to entertain and provide information.
The Commission did not find anything wrong in directing the complainant to resolve the issue in judiciary when the RTI Act has no such provision enabling the SIC to give such direction..
I had specifically asked for information defined in ection 2(f) and 2(j) falling under the ambit of Section 4(1)(d). The PIO replied me to approach judiciary. The AA and District Collector opted to keep quite and not to reply.
The meaning of the word 'comments', interpretation etc.in my opinion should be, given as Opinion in the dictionery and Section 2(f) which SAYS THAT OPINION IS INFORMATION.
