 Case Digest

Right to Information Act 2005
Section 5(2)- Designation of Public Information Officers
Section 5(2)- Designation of Public Information Officers
APIO - It is only a PIO who is required to provide information TO THE REQUESTERS. When a request is received by an APIO he is required only to forward the same forthwith to a PIO of the public authority.
10/01/2005-CIC dated 25.2.2006 on complaint from Er. Sarbajit Roy
Section 5(2)- Designation of Public Information Officers
Can an APIO sign a response letter? - The Act has surely limited the APIO’s rule only to receiving applications for information and appeals and transmitting the same to their proper destination. His responsibilities are not co-extensive with the PIO. In the normal course an applicant for information has a right to receive the reply from the PIO and the PIO only. We, however, see no legal difficulty in the PIO using the services of an APIO to transmi6 the former’s decision on the application for information through the APIO. …any order issued by an APIO on behalf of PIO must clearly state that the former was only transmitting the orders of latter and should also state the name and the designation of the PIO on whose behalf the APIO might be acting.
CIC/AT/A/2006/00059 dated 5.5.2006 on appeal from Shri Ravinder Balwani
