    My comments are only subjective based on my bitter experience of more than 50 applications and desired information received in only few cases due to lack of fear of penality among PIOs,replying in negligent and false.Rest are in follow up process in I,II appeals in central,state information commissions.

    Such voice needs to be immediately raised to impose penality on PIOs who are deliberately flouting the act.We indians donot satisfy with glass 90% full and enjoy it.
    If this available 90% enjoyed well by enforcing penality on guilty PIOs,there will be huge masses supporting for file notings.

  2. In my opinion,stress should only be on penality ,if it cannot be ,then what will we achieve ultimately.

    There is usual reply by most of the PIOs that information is confidential (without referring section 8&9),you can appeal our appellate authority(time pass of 1 month at AA,then very likely cic will
    uphold AA or rare cases instruct PIO to provide documents without any penality,disciplinary action,time pass of 4-5 months).

    Thus after waiting for average 6 months for ordinary information ,without imposing penality, in most of applications,expecting notesheet is futile and unnecessary.
