Staff shortage at State Info Commission delays orders
V Madhav, an RTI activist in Porur, recently appealed to the Tamil Nadu Information Commission seeking a direction to the state public department to disclose the status of declaration of assets by IAS and IPS officials. On August 25, the Commission pronounced that the department provide the required information to the appellant within two weeks. Madhav is still waiting for the department to respond to the Commission's directive. Reason: The commission has not been able to deliver the order copy for want of adequate staff. Madhav is not alone. Several others who have filed appeals before the Commission have not got the copies of the orders even a month after they were pronounced.
