Showcause notice to Sutlej Club PIO

A full Bench of the Punjab State Information Commission, comprising CIC R I Singh, SICs Lt Gen PK Grover (Retd) and Surinder Singh, served a showcause notice on the public information officer (PIO) of Ludhiana's Sutlej Club on Tuesday for failing to provide information to an applicant. The club was declared a public authority under the RTI Act over two months ago. S S Chana, the applicant, had sought information regarding establishment, organisation structure and accounts of the club. The bench served a show-cause notice, asking why penalty should not be imposed on the PIO for not providing information. "In addition to a written reply, which he may file, the PIO has also been given opportunity of a personal hearing before imposition of penalty on the next date of hearing," the bench said. In case he fails to file a reply and does not avail of the personal hearing opportunity, the commission will proceed against him ex
parte. The case will come up for hearing on September 27.
