Func­tional Benches Af­ter Six Months

The Economic Times - - Pure Politics -

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.
