Govt plans to reduce powers of CIC

NDTV Correspondent

Thursday, August 3, 2006 (New Delhi):


In another blow to the RTI act, the government plans to further reduce the powers of the Central Information Commission by now transferring the right to take a final decision on complaints against officers who do not give out information to citizens.

Till now the commission had the final say in most matters and enjoyed the powers of a civil court and could summon officers, ask for documents and even impose fines.

The proposed amendment may end up reducing the CIC to only giving recommendations to the state and central government, which would have the final say.

Campaigners are planning to launch a nationwide campaign next week in protest of the proposed amendments.
