Early Times Report

Srinagar, Aug 16: Jammu & Kashmir State Information Commission (SIC) has started collecting data for compilation of its annual reports as the same was not prepared from 2014 onwards. SIC as per reliable sources, have started issuing letters to various administrative departments in this regard. Details available with ET reveal that taking cognizance of Early Times report published on August 14th about SICs failure to prepare its annual reports from 2014 onwards , the SIC have initiated the process of making these reports public. Sources have told Early Times that the delay has been caused due to non availability of the data which is to be supplied by different public authorities especially the administrative departments.
As per the section 22 of J&K RTI Act 2009 , the State Information Commission after the end of each year is supposed to prepare a report on the implementation of the provisions of the act during that year and forward the copy to the Government.
By not coming up with annual reports from 2013 on-wards the J&K State Information Commission (JKSIC) has failed to adhere to the provisions of J&K RTI Act 2009.The last annual report was uploaded by SIC for the year 2013-14 on its official websites from that year on-wards not a single report has been prepared by the Commission " SIC castigates senior Govt officers who are First Appellate Authorities (FAAs) and Public Information Officers (PIOs) during case hearings. The officers are reprimanded for not adhering to J&K RTI Act provisions. When the commission has itself failed to adhere to J&K RTI Act 2009 provisions, i believe it cannot enforce the RTI law with full authority. On the other hand this failure cannot be directly attributed to SIC also as public authorities/ administrative departments have failed to send the data to commission, they must also be held responsible for the delay" said Dr Raja Muzaffar Chairman JK RTI Movement. A delegation of RTI Movement had recently urged upon Commissioner SIC M A Mir to prepare all the annual reports of last 4 years during a meeting recently and an assurance was given to the delegation that fresh report will be made public soon.
