As regards, the list of cases in which penalty has been imposed, the appellant was informed by the PIO that the said information was available on the website of the Commission. In response to point No. 4, seeking information is regarding cost per decision, the appellant was informed that the same was not assessed. Not satisfied with the information provided by the PIO, the appellant filed first appeal with Registrar JKSIC (FAA) on 19.05.2018 submitting thereunder that the information in respect of point No. 2 is incomplete and information asked for in point No. 3 was not available on the website.

Aggrieved by the said order of the First Appellate Authority, the appellant filed second appeal on 24.09.2018 with the State Information Commission (SIC) stating therein that the PIO has provided incomplete information to him. "Since the appellant did not appear on consecutive two hearings, his views could not be ascertained. By his continued absence, the Commission can presume he is not interested to pursuing his appeal any further. Be that it may , the information sought by the appellant through his RTI request has been furnished by the PIO. So far as information sought through point No.4 is concerned, the same being hypothetical does not fall within the definition of "information" under section 2(d) of the J&K RTI Act, 2009. Hence the decision of the First Appellate Authority in that regard is upheld. Nothing further remains to be adjudicated and the appeal is accordingly disposed of " reads the SIC order.
