    The RTI Act has no provision to penalise an applicant. But I couldnot follow the logic behind your question. An applicant does not furnish information; but seek information. Often it is alleged about applicant settling score with PIOs by asking information inconvenient to the PIO or AA . I presume that your reference to PIA is PIO . In any case an applicant can only ask information and does not furnish any information. . Seeking any information irrespective of it settle score or not does not constitute any offence. If the information sought is provided by the PIO also the applicant has no role even if the information so disclosed cause undue injury to the PIO. The responsibility to provide or not provide the information and its consequences are to be faced by the PIO.

    If you come out with more spoecifics of the case, learned members of this forum may clear all your doubts.

    If the information has been sent to applicant by pio and still he writes to commission that he has not recd the information just to harass pio to settle the score then what to do.

    there is nothing to worry on the part of PIO as the applicant complaint or the appeal will be rejected at a very initial stage.

    Atul,
    Where you the applicant ? Did you make a false complaint to the Commission that you did not receive the information ? If so. it is not acceptable to law abiding honest members of this forum. If you are not the liar and it pertain to some one else, please ignore him. Such people are not worth keeping company with nor deserve any guidance from members of this forum. For your information, though the issue does not fall under the ambit of RTI Act, it amount to " framing a false report in a judicial proceedings " - a offence for which a capable PIO can arrange to book the culprit though people ignores it.

    The date is actually 11.02.03,sorry for printing mistake.
    No false complaint,8 different RTI applications were scrapped by the First appellate authority in one decision as "frivolous and vexatious...",When the applicant entered the CIC for hearing dt.11.02,the CIC was already biased that being an employee of the First appellate authority he was as per the CIC "misusing the RTI Act meant for poor persons"...
