How to File Complaint against Chief Information Commissioner and Registrar of Information Commission
(Querist) 21 December 2008
This query is : Resolved
I am a Senior Citizen anad I am having a Writ given by the Hon'ble High Court against a Registration Department regarding information about a Particular Document. Thru the writ I got some information, but the Vital Information is still held by the Registration Department.
In this connection I made neccessary RTI application to that Registration Department, they failed to furnish the vital information, I filed an Appeal before the Chief Information Commissioner.
What I find is to my utter surprise, The Chief Information Commissioner is favouring the Registration Department, inspite me having a writ granted by the Hon'ble High Court regarding information relating to a Document.
Now my two questions are as follows;
1. To whom to file a Complaint for the indifferent attitude of the Cheif Information Commissioner, for totally disrespecting the Hon'ble High Court Order and showing a Bias towards the Registartion Department. He thinks that he is the supremo and there is no one above him to correct.
2. If I make an RTI application to the PIO for want of explanation of grounds for not taking actions against the Registration Department for not furnishing information, The Registrar sincerely follows rules that Hypothetical questions need not be answered under RTI act. Is this Correct? and he also does not follow the same sincereity in Invoking Penal provisions of the RTI against the concerned,
Whom to Complain ?
In both the cases the Chief Information Commissioner and Registrar of the Information Commission are behaving like dictators, Is there a way to teach them a lesson ?

If the Writ had been issued against the CIC and Registrar of the CIC. You have an ample jurisdiction to file a contempt petition before the same High Court against the CIC and Registrar. If they had been impleaded as party in your Writ Petition before the High Court.
However the axact suggestions could be furnished if you supply me the copy of the Final Judgement / order passed by the Hon'ble High Court in Writ Petiton.
