Order of the FAA:
Ground of the Second Appeal:
Reply was unsatisfactory Relevant Facts emerging during Hearing: The following were present:
Respondent: Ms. Swatantar Bala, Public Information Officer & Additional Director;
The Appellant shows that the FAA had issued an order on 24/01/2011 directing the PIO to give appropriate answer for query-9 and also clarify the position on the seniority list sought in query-8. The PIO has provided this information to the Appellant by a letter of 30/01/2011. The PIO has already informed the Appellant seniority list is available only upto 31/12/1994 and the balance seniority list is likely to be prepared. The Commission realizes that the information available on the records have been given but finds it very disturbing that the department does not update its seniority lists with some regularity and is yet to prepare seniority list for teachers after 1994.
The Appeal is disposed.
The information available on the records had been provided. This decision is announced in open chamber. Notice of this decision be given free of cost to the parties. Any information in compliance with this Order will be provided free of cost as per Section 7(6) of RTI Act.
