    Re: information pertaining to details of all employees of an organisation


    Krishnakumar,

    The RTI Act provides for Penalty under Sec 20(1) and Disciplinary Action under Sec 20(2) against the PIO for various reasons listed therein.

    The PIO is not responsible for not implementing Sec 4 in a PA. He is only responsible for not providing information when asked about it. He will coolly reply "the information asked is not available on record".

    As per my understanding it is only the Administrative Head of a PA who is responsible for implementing Sec 4.

    And, as all of us know, there is no provision in the RTI Act for penalising or taking disciplinary action against the administrative head.

    Head of PA can be penalised by CIC/SIC by recommending to govt to initiate disciplinary or administrative action against Head for defying law passed by the parliament. Every PA has to mandatorily comply with section 4.1.b.IC can even order compensation to be paid to the complainant from salary of Head for non-availability of info under 4.1.b. IC can order diclosure under 4.1.b within 15 days.
    It takes each of us to make difference for all of us.
