Haryana Education Department Directed to Pay Rs.4000/- Compensation under RTI Act 2005.

Haryana Education Department Directed to Pay Rs.4000/- Compensation under RTI Act 2005-Taking the strong note of the detriment suffered by the Right to Information Applicant, The State Information Commission of Haryana has directed the Public Information Officer of the Haryana Education Department to Pay Rs.4000/- as a compensation under Section 19(8) (b) of the Right to Information Act, 2005.

The Education Activist Mr.Narender Munjal, resident of Faridabad had filed the application under the RTI Act 2005 on 26.05.2017 seeking the information regarding temporary recognition of some particular schools and correspondence in this regard with the Haryana Board of School Education between 2001 to 2016. However suffering the traditional ignorance of the education department to provide the information, Mr.Narender Gunjal filed the second appeal before the State Information Commissioner, Haryana.

Explaining this issue further Mr.Narender Munjal Said ‘Pursuant to filing of my second appeal, the SIC during the hearing passed the order on 11.10.2018 allowing me the inspection of the document. However when i went the office of the Public Information Officer located at Bhivani for the actual inspection, i was shockingly informed that the documents are not available for the inspection. Accordingly i filed the complaint before the SIC again which took the immediate cognizance and directed the compensation of Rs.4000/- to me’.

‘In this matter one respondent public information officer has thus been punished, yet i will be filing the  additional complaint against the another public information officer who is second respondent party in this matter.’ added Mr.Munjal.
