1) Full name of the appellant : AFROZ ALAM SAHIL
2) Address : C/o:- Faiz Ahmad Faiz
F-56/23, Sir Syed Road,
Batla House, Okhla, New Delhi-25.
3) The grounds for appeal :
a) Vague, False and Incomplete Information from CPIO.
b) Required information as per the bullet points in my RTI Application not received from the CPIO.
I am aghast to read an RTI reply like this, that too from the PIO of a Central University. It is extremely disappointing that the PIO instead of furnishing information has rejected the information on the ground that this particular RTI application is 'to harass, unnecessary burden and tax the personnel of the university'.
From this RTI reply, it is clear that Jamia Millia Islamia does not want to be accountable and transparent to the public.
a. The 1st appellate authority should mention in his order recommending penal provision and direct strict disciplinary action to be taken against CPIO under Section 20 of the RTI Act for denying of information and dereliction of duty.
b. The CPIO be penalized and strict disciplinary action be taken against him under services conduct Rules and Discipline and Appeal rules 1968 and 1969.
c. The CPIO be directed to provide true and complete information sought by me in my RTI application.
d. Kindly provide the information point-wise and in Hindi or English language as far as possible as required under Section 6 (1), 4 (3) and 7 (9) of the RTI Act, 2005.
e. If any information is denied then please quote the exemption clause of Section 8 (1) and a brief reason as to how it applies. This is a requirement of the RTI Act, as per Section 7 (8) (i) read along with Section 19 (5).
