Tehsildar penalised for denying information

The state information commissioner has imposed a penalty of Rs 25,000 on a tehsildar for not providing information under the Right to Information (RTI) Act. The amount will be deducted from the salary of Tehsildar, Jalandhar-1, Rajiv Verma. Complainant Rabinder Singh had filed an application on February 10, 2009, seeking information on the tenure of Verma's predecessor Harminder Singh and the number of RTI applications receive and dispose of by him. With no reply in over three months, the complainant appealed to the deputy commissioner of Jalandhar on May 18, 2009. But despite orders from the DC, he was not provided with the information.
