The Act prescribes that the CICs/SICs should come from the following;
"The Chief Information Commissioner and Information Commissioners shall be persons of eminence in public life with wide knowledge and experience in law, science and technology, social service, management, journalism, mass media or administration and governance."But most of the posts have been hijacked by bureaucrats so far.
Very few ICs are from non-government sector. Mr. Vijay Kuvalekar IC (Maharastra) is perhaps is only IC who was a journalist before.
Do we have any other ICs who is not a bureaucrat?
When the Central and State Govts start the next round of appointments, they must consider non-bureaucrats to balace the bias that has crept into the system.
