Functioning of CIC

Unhappy with the functioning of the Chief Information Commissioner, volunteers from AID in the US, carried out extensive research and analysis of the decisions given by the CIC in the past few months, and petitioned the President to question the CIC about the implementation of the Act. Thereafter, the President met with a delegation of our Indian partners and listened to all their concerns. Since then, there has been a visible change in the functioning of the CIC, who for the first time imposed penalties on faulting officers.
