All Appeals, Complaints Pending Under RTI In J&K To Be Dealt By CIC

New Delhi, Dec 2: All second appeals and complaints pending with the Jammu and Kashmir State Information Commission under the erstwhile state’s Right to Information Act will be dealt with by the Central Information Commission.

A large number of applications and appeals filed under the Jammu and Kashmir Right to Information Act, 2009, would have been pending on the date of bifurcation.

Since the two new UTs were formed, citizens and transparency activists have been approaching RTI advocates and officials concerned seeking clarity on disposal of their applications, and first appeals pending before various public authorities and the second appeals and complaints pending before the State Information Commission.

Under the Central RTI Act, UTs do not have power to establish and constitute Information Commissions, so all appeals and complaints pending before the JK Information Commission were to be transferred to the CIC.
