Norms for allotment of the community hall to the public
The appellant sought information regarding the completion of a construction of community hall/ marriage hall at Banda railway station along with the norms prescribed for ensuring that required facilities are provided to the employees. He also sought a copy of policy formulated to ensure that the Public Authority benefits from allotment of the hall to the public. Not satisfied by the reply given by the Public Information Officer (PIO), an appeal was filed to the First Appellate Authority (FAA) who held that part information has been provided to the appellant. He further informed that no such policy has been formulated till date.
The respondent submitted that while responding to the RTI application, the appellant was informed that the construction work of the marriage hall has almost been completed. Later, when the work was fully completed and the hall was ready, the appellant was informed about it. The respondent further stated that at the time the reply to the RTI application was given, no policy for allotment of the hall existed. However, now the policy is ready and the same was furnished to the appellant on a later date.
View of CIC
The Central Information Commission (CIC) rejected the appeal noting that the information has already been provided and no further action is required.
