False information under RTI lands NMPT PIO in soup
Public Information Officer (PIO) in the New Mangalore Port Trust (NMPT) was placed on the dock for furnishing false information. The Central Information Commission (CIC) issued summons directing PIO to attend a hearing for furnishing false information on pay package of Assistant Marine Surveyors in the NMPT. The notice was issued after CIC's attention was drawn to the information, submitted to Sarvottam Acharya from Bajpe, did not have the mandatory signature or seal of the officer concerned. In April 2005, the state High Court passed an order directing the NMPT chairman to revise the pay-scales of Assistant Marine surveyors retrospectively from 1980.
