3 years on, GIC yet to give final order on RTI dispute

Nearly three years ago, an appeal was made before the Gujarat Information Commission (GIC) on an RTI application seeking details of tie-up between Dow Chemicals and the state-owned Gujarat Alkalies and Chemicals Limited. Now the final order is likely to be out within a month. Appu Abraham, Administrative Consultant with GIC, said the reply has been delayed because there are many pending cases with the Commission. The last
hearing in the case was held on June 23, 2009. Abraham added: "The final hearing is pending. It will be over in a month." On July 2, 2007, GACL had notified the stock markets that it had signed an MoU with Dow Chemicals. A few days later, on July 13, 2007, Chennai-based environment activist Nityanand Jayaraman filed an RTI application with GACL, seeking details of the tie-up.
