CAB debate handled in an impressive manner

While one may not have any view for or against Citizen Amendment Bill one could not but be impressed the way Amit Shah handled the entire debate both in the LOK Sabha and Rajya Sabha. Watching him in Rajya Sabha one could not but be full of admiration for his superb defence of the bill. He had done so much of home work and answered each and every member who raised some or the other misgivings on this contentious bill.His superb floor management ,his articulation with factual details carried the day for the ruling party. He has shown all these skills even as party president. The way he manages elections and built up the party organisation leaves one dumbfounded. We may not agree with some of the policies propounded by this Government but one thing we can not deny that after a long time we have a very able and pro-active Home minister .

DATE WITH RTI
Disciplinary action for non- compliance of CIC order
 
Vide order dated 20.09.2017, the CIC had directed the CPIO, Geological Survey of India, Kolkata to provide certain information to the appellant, within a period of four weeks from the date of receipt of a copy of the order. However, no information was provided and the respondent admitted that, inadvertently, no reply in compliance with the order of the CIC could be furnished to the appellant. The respondent tendered his unconditional apology for this lapse and requested the CIC to condone the same. The CIC took an adverse view of the inaction on the part of the respondent in not responding to its letter dated 08.02.2019 regarding non-compliance of the Commission’s order. This shows that the respondent had deliberately not complied with the Commission’s order. The CIC directed the Director General, Geological Survey of India, Kolkata to take corrective action in the matter. The CIC also recommended disciplinary action against Shri S.C. Bose, the then Assistant Director (Personnel and Administration) and CPIO, RTI Cell, GSI, Kolkata under the service rules applicable to him for not complying with the order of the Commission dated 20.09.2017.
 
Comments
 
Under Section 20(2) of the RTI Act, disciplinary action can be taken against a CPIO for malafide denial of information.
