On 6th May, 2015 had my 1st hearing for my right to information first appeal at session court Mumbai 35th court room at 4:30pm. I filed the appeal in favour of my RTI application twice time by CPIO at session court.
The CPIO (by prof. L.L.B ) scrutinized my application under section 2(f) as the information asked was not in the meaning of “Information” asked in my application even said the applicant should be filed the application through self-address with postal stamp.
As I was disappointed with the feedback of CPIO then I was left with no other choice so I filed the said appeal before Appeal authority at Session Court. During the hearing the CPIO said the information asked is not in the meaning of INFORMATION as per the act. After the CPIO hearing I was given the opportunity to present my say.
I objected their stance and said with understanding 2(F) of RTI any information which may be RECORDS is also mean of an information which is line-up with CPIO.
Than CPIO said I don’t have only one work, there are lots of work to do. I replied, I can understood you are busy with your work schedule, but you can’t deny the information for which you are appointed as CPIO by state Govt. Even though you are given with ample power, resources and technology within the limits of your zone as like man-power, computerization and other do perform your duties with the best means and as possible as well all state Govt. have to maintained their official documents as records for smooth functioning.
The CPIO just kept mum…in-front of Appeal Authority
He asked for next date before Appeal Authority which is granted to him next hearing on 14th of May, 2015. Hope more to come … Being Vaastav guy makes u strong & determined to success !!
Thanks & Regards
