I had applied under RTI for some information from State Bank of India, due to rejection under section 8 (d) (e) & (j). I filed Ist appeal to their appellate authority. Again they rejected it u/s 8 (d) & (j).
I filed second appeal with CIC in Novemebr'10, the case may be listed in month or two for hearing.
What are the process of hearing with CIC under RTI?
Should I need to appoint a lawyer for it?
Kindly guide and advice me, My presence during hearing is importance and have any impact over the decision of CIC or the written submission which is filed at the time of appeal filling is sufficient for the case result.
Presently I am residing in Jaipur, should I need to attend hearing.
No need of appointing any lawyer. It is better you attend the matter personnally, though it is not a must. You will be heared and for sure you can make an impact, and lead the decesion making machinery.
