SVU in a fix over RTI Act implementation

Information Commissioner issues summons to Registrar

TIRUPATI: The top brass of Sri Venkateswara University is in a fix over providing information to an employee, who is presently under suspension.

The vacillation on the issue has landed Registrar N. Prabhakar Rao in trouble as the Information Commissioner has issued summons asking him to appear before the commission on July 28.

The authorities would have had the last word under normal circumstances, but university engineer Ravi Shankar, who is presently under suspension, sought vital information under Right to Information Act. The details pertained mostly to the alleged irregularities in his very department.

When the university did not act, he moved the appellate authority, who is the Vice-Chancellor himself. When there was still no action, he moved the Information Commissioner, who ultimately issued summons.
