Relevant Facts emerging during Hearing:
The following were present
Appellant: Mrs. Reena Sharma;
Respondent: Mrs. Daljeet Kaur, Public Information Officer ;
The PIO admits that no order has been given by the FAA Mrs. Rashmi Krishnan,
Director. The First Appellate Authority Mrs. Rashmi Krishnan appears to be guilty of
dereliction of duty since she does not appear to have passed any order in the matter.
The Respondent points out that the appellant herself was incharge of the
Administration Branch and was responsible for providing the information. This is a very
peculiar case where the holder of the information has sought information and is now raising
the matter that she did not herself provide the information. However, with a view to
facilitating her getting the information the Commission orders that the PIO will facilitate an
inspection of all the records by the Appellant so that the appellant can take the information
that she wants.
The appeal is disposed.
The PIO is directed to facilitate an inspection of the records by the
appellant on 01 June 2010 at 11.00AM. The PIO will give attested photocopies
of the records which the appellant wants free of cost upto 100 pages.
The First Appellate Authority Mrs. Rashmi Krishnan is directed to present herself
before the Commission with her explanation on 22 June 2010 at 4.30pm to showcause why
the Commission should not recommend disciplinary action against her for dereliction of duty.
This decision is announced in open chamber.
Notice of this decision be given free of cost to the parties.
