Information regarding unwanted message on mobile phone using RTI
The appellant filed an application under the Right to Information (RTI) Act with the BSNL seeking information pertaining to unwanted message delivered on his and his wife’s mobile along with a copy of permission letter, rules and regulations regarding messages services and complete description of balance which has been deducted. He also wanted the detailed description of the person who had sent the message. The Public Information Officer (PIO) provided some information.
During the hearing before the Central Information Commission (CIC), the appellant stated that he has not been provided complete and correct information requested in his RTI application. He further stated that certain cost has been demanded for supply of information though the PIO’s reply was received after the stipulated period and hence the information should now be given free of cost. The PIO stated that he will ensure that complete information is provided to the appellant.
View of CIC
The Commission directed the PIO to provide the information free of cost to the appellant.
