The applicant who needed some information from the First Public Authourity filed an application (Exhibit - A). The First PIO duly forwarded the application to the other Public Authourity (Respondent) by marking a copy to the complainant (Ex -B) with directions to contact them. After due compliance, there was no response from the other (onward) Public Authourities, thus resulting in the First Appeal (Ex- C). Consequently, the other Public Authourity u/s 6(3) i.e. Respondent through a letter (Ex- D) refused to give access to the information asked, bluntly and categorically. He also arrogated to himself and his organization all the waivers, exemptions and immunities provided in RTI Act with a view to justify his non-disclosure. Hence this query
Reasons for rejection:
1). The Respondent, despite being declared a Public Authourity by concerned Regulatory body has repudiated his obligation and mis-informed about his status under RTI Law.
2). The Respondent, has wrongfully set aside my application for the reasons that it contained “a questionnaire”, without any application of mind.
3). The Respondent, has brought a dispute of Public Interest into the issue which is totally out of context and against the RTI Law.
4). The Respondent, without any basis for justification, declared his Organisation as immune to RTI Law.
5). In the same breath, he claimed exemption provided by RTI law without any basis or clarifications.
6). The Respondent, further, brought in irrelevant matters with a threat of “actions” if RTI procedure is repeated.
