Re: Can Information Officer direct to approach other authority
Right to information means the right to information accessible under this Act, which is held by or under the control of any public authority .... . Thus, your right is only to seek information held by that particular authority. You cannot file RTI Application with the PIO of Police Station and seek the List of BPL Card Holders of that area. The question of transfer comes when the public authority which receive the RTI application knows as to which other pubic authority hold the demanded information. If you file RTI Application with the District Employment Officer and seek - the list of employees retired from Thane District during 2010, what the PIO is expected to do?
Sir, I have asked information relating a GO that is mentioned in a proceedings(orders) issued by an office.
But they have sent that ," the information asked by you is not related to that department. and you have to ask information relating that department."
But , I have asked information on an orders issued by the same office.They didnt follow Sec 6 (3). And even they didnt direct me to approach another department.And that too information was provided after I filed my first appeal, that the PIO didnt gave me information.
What should I do now??Go for Second appeal in State Information commission or addendum to First appellate authority again??
Wait for 30 to 45 days from the date of submission of first appeal and thereafter file Second Appeal, if you do not receive any decision from him.
