One first appeal impleading 6 PIOs followed by one second appeal if necessitate is more than enough. In any case never expect a penalty of 6 x 25000. Our Commissions are quite capable to ordering anything, My concept is that one first/second appeal per case. Total penalty cannot exceed Rs,25000 per case.
    Really, at least the procedure for Second Appeal with CIC is exhausting, time consuming and costly. I have just finished preparing my 3 Second appeals for CIC for the First Time ever. Total time was about 8 hours, 278 pages (all three and 5 copies each), 476 rupees, not counting petrol expenses and time.

    If you feel it dificult to file a second appeal to CiC, what will be the fate of less fortunate section of WE THE PEOPLE OF INDIA?. I refuse TO file any fresh second appeal to CIC till he withraw his unlawful Management Regulation 2007

    I bet ,the penality in totality will not be more than Rs.25000/-,more like Rs 500/-,if at all awarded.
    But fight you must.

    And I still think,Sec6(3) is relevant and I quote for ready ref."the public authority,to which such application is made,shall transfer the application OR SUCH PART OF IT as may be appropriate to that other public authority and inform the applicant immediately about such transfer"And that is what more or less happened in this case.

    It seems that it is penalty per RTI Application. Penalty has to be shared by all.

    Please see:

    http://cic.gov.in/CIC-Orders/WB-07052008-01.pdf

    Under the circumstances SDM Hauz Khas and Tehsildar Hauz Khas, both
    having had the opportunity to be heard by us, are jointly liable for a penalty of Rs.
    25,000/-, with Rs 10,000/- being payable by SDM and the balance of Rs.
    15,000/- by Shri Saini, Tehsildar, Hauz Khas.

    All seven in this case become respondents in one single appeal ,and penality will have to be prayed for all,its a different matter that CIC in keeping with above orders may impose a maximum collective penality not exceeding Rs25000
