An open e-mail to the Chief Information Commissioner of India Sir, I refer to the decision posted on your CIC website in Appeal No. CIC/WB/A/2006/00194 Dated: 11.4.2006 Right to Information Act – Section 19 Name of Appellant Shri Manoj Chaudhry Name of Public Authority Smt. Neemo Dhar, Director (PR), DDA and Shri V.M.Bansal, Commissioner-cum-Secy At the outset may I compliment you for remembering that I was assisting the appellant Mr. Manoj Chaudhury. I compliment you Sir for remembering at least this one essential fact, because the rest of the so called "facts" you found during the proceedings are a figment of your imagination. Sir, I would strongly urge you to video-tape all the proceedings of CIC in future or at least have a stenographer present so that there is no dispute about what happens behind the closed doors of your chambers. To put it very bluntly (since I am given to plain speaking) I am impugning your competence in this matter and you seem to have overlooked somehow that proceedings of CIC are to be open proceedings precisely to avoid the closed door dealings which in which you repeatedly and blatantly favour the land mafia of Delhi which is epi-centred in Nirman Bhawan where I am given to understand you were yourself an officer at some time past. I intend to send you a detailed letter concerning Mr. Manoj Chaudhury's case and also Information Comissioner Kejriwal's RTI matter concerning his category 7 accomodation pending with MoUD where the CIC appears open to being bought off. Till then I would kindly request you to see if you wish to review Mr. Chaudhry's decision suo-moto since I am unable to assist him before you. Yours in disgust etc. Sarbajit Roy A Citizen of India.
