Details available with Early Times reveal that an RTI application was filed by one Pritam Singh Saini, of Lower Muthi Jammu on 07.03.2018 with the PIO/Secretary, JMC seeking information related to grant of building permissions in Sainik Colony.
The PIO furnished information to the applicant vide his letter dated 11.04.2018. The applicant, however, filed First Appeal before the First Appellate Authority (FAA) JMC, Jammu on 26.04.2018. The FAA disposed of the First Appeal vide his order dated: 24.05.2018.
However, not satisfied with the information so provided, the applicant filed second appeal before the SIC on 11.06.2018 (admitted on 25.06.2018) praying therein that respondents be directed to provide the complete and accurate information to the appellant, free of cost.
The appeal came up for hearing before SIC on 24.09.2018. The appellant Pritam Singh Saini was present in person. The respondents were represented by Harinder Arora, Senior Town Planner, JMC, Jammu/PIO. The appellant submitted that reply to point 6 of his RTI request is not satisfactory and the respondents have suppressed the information. In point No. 6, the appellant has sought information regarding whether the JMC has sought NOCs in respect of House Nos. 215, 194, 214 of Sector-A, Sainik Colony, Jammu and Plot No. 142, Sector No. 4, Sanjay Nagar, Jammu.

SIC's order reads: "After hearing the parties and going through the documents submitted during the hearing, the Commission is of the considered view that the entire information has been furnished to the appellant except information relating to point No. 6 of his basic RTI application.
