Functional Benches After Six Months
After a gap of six months, the Central Information Commission has constituted benches of information commissioners to hear RTI cases that need more careful examination of the law. The benches had not been constituted and such cases had mounted to about 30. Only nine full-bench decisions had come in 2015 compared to 16 in 2014. With the new CIC RK Mathur in the chair, the benches are now functional.
