Routine transfer of RTI Application from head office
An application was under the RTI Act seeking certain information about termination of dealership. The appellant prayed for imposition of penalty under Section 20 (1) of the RTI Act and sought compensation alleging that the custodian of the information transferred the application to the Guwahati office. The CIC observed that the somewhat confused replies appear to have been the result of the system of dealing with the RTI applications filed to the Head Office, under which such applications are apparently sent in the first instance to the concerned state office even before checking whether the information in question is available with any of the departments at the Head Office. The CIC held that the Respondents need to streamline the system to ensure that the applications that can be disposed of at the Head Office are not sent needlessly to the state offices. Further, since malafide intent on the part of the Respondents was not established, no action was directed against the PIO under Section 20. Furthermore, as the Appellant did establish any loss or detriment caused to him because of the replies of the Respondents to his RTI application, he was not entitled to get the information.
In many public authorities, the complete RTI Application is routinely transferred to multiple subordinate offices without proper examination as to which office holds the information. Such a practice leads to delay and an unnecessary paper work which the officials should steer clear of.
