Re: When does one use a "review petition" to the CIC?
I have relied upon the following contention stated by Dr. Malhotra in his above post.
The Chief information commission is also in knowledge of the infirmities committed by him in his order dated 27 February 2012, and now wants an escape route to come out of it and set the things right. That's why he has accepted my application dated 01 March 2012 for review. Normally, the applications for review by appellants/complainants to the Commissionfind the way to dustbin without giving a thought. Only application of PIOs are entertained in the Commission and decisions reversed, for strange reasons best known to commission.
"The Order can not be APPEALED before High Court , it can only be challenged by way of a writ petition . So by inserting the word APPEAL , the legislature actually intended to give an opportunity to two parties to raise objections to decision of the IC before the matter was finally closed and disposed off . APPEAL can only be made to IC under RTI Act , it can not be made to courts .
