Put information regarding appointment of Information Commissioners on website
An application was filed under the Right to Information (RTI) Act with the Ministry of Personnel seeking the details of the appointments of information commissioners at the Central Information Commission (CIC).
As there was delay in providing the information, the ministry official had, in the reply, said that the delay was due to being overburdened by the queries apart from administrative works.
Looking into the problem, the CIC has directed the Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT) to upload on its website as much information it can under suo motu disclosure clause of the RTI Act. The CIC contended that as not much files fall under the exemption clause of the transparency act, many files like those relating to the appointment of CIC/Information Commissioners, amendment to RTI Act and rules, staff strength, etc. can be uploaded on the website.
