RTI whip on Tripura official

Tripura’s chief information commissioner B.K. Chakraborty today imposed a fine of Rs 24,000 on a block development officer for failing to provide information to an applicant under the Right to Information (RTI) Act, 2005. Krishna Gopal Saha, 43, a resident of Shibnagar in Sadar subdivision, had sought information about the utilisation of funds under the NREGA scheme in the block in the last fiscal in a letter to BDO (Mohanpur) Pradip Acharjee on March 27. The officer, however, took no initiative to disseminate the information. After Saha failed to obtain the information, he appealed to the state information commission and, having gone through the case, Chakraborty directed Acharjee on April 28 to provide the necessary information within 10 days, but the BDO did not comply with the order.
