Dear Shri Rai,
My web search reveals that for video conferencing facility, there is only one NIC studio for the whole of Karnataka based at Bangalore. The name of the contact person is given as Shri S M Shankar Raju with the telephone no. 080-25537123.
The address of the Karnataka State Centre of NIC is:
NIC State Centre, 6th & 7th Floor, Mini Tower, Visveshwaraya Building
Dr. Ambedkar Veedhi, Bangalore - 560001
I hope this information will be of some use to you.
I have got a communication from CIC. They have asked me to appear before IC on 29.11.07 at 2:00 pm at Delhi.
Now the point is I am a old man - 78 years, living on my savings. If I could go/come and stay in Delhi winter for just a hearing, I would have done it. But neither my health or finances permit me.
Is there a way out or should I drop my appeal?
As rightly said by mpai: "Mera Bharat Mahaan !"
1. Do not drop appeal.
2. New CIC management regulations has some provisions on compensating the outstation RTI Appellants in attending hearing. We should know the outcome by end of Sept. 2007
3. If not, the Video Conferencing facility would be a safe bet.
