Information Commissioner is required to keep a balance in the matter placed before him
Ref: CIC expresses severe displeasure over the conduct of the then PIO for not providing timely reply
The above mentioned decision of learned Information Commissioner, is like a miscarriage decision and not as per provision of RTI Act. While before exercising his powers to adjudicate decision, the IC is required to keep balance in between matter placed before him either by Appellant/ Complainant and respective PIOs.
Thus, the arguments put forth by Appellant/ Complainant has not been taken into account and counter arguments put forth by IC in the case rather accepted the submitted by PIOs and no counter arguments are available in this decision.
Most probably in the grab of COVID-19 effect an opportunity being encashed to dispose of cases by Copy Paste.
