UP RTI chief fined for professional misconduct
The UP chief information commissioner, Ranjit Singh Pankaj has been penalised by Allahabad high court. The court has slapped a fine of Rs 50,000 on Singh for "misleading the court and extending favours to a lessee involved in illegal mining" during his previous tenure as the mining secretary in the state government. The court took a strict view of the role of Pankaj as the mining secretary and directed him to submit Rs 50,000 as fine to the registrar general of the high court from his salary through bank draft within four weeks for "concealing facts, telling lies" and favouring the wrong man instead of taking action against him.
