1-CPIO Should provide the reasons for not mentioning the registration number of the RTI applications as a right to reason is an indispensable part of the sound administrative system.
Reply of CPIO- Kindly refer to your online RTI application-Registration Number DGIND/R/T/23/00074, Name Yogi M P Singh, Received Date 07/11/2023
In this regard it is informed that registration number is allotted only to online RTI applications. Offline RTI applications are not allotted with any registration number. You had filed an offline RTI application therefore registration number was not mentioned in order under section 7 dated 20th October 2023 passed by CPIO.
Submission of the appellant- It must be noted that the appellant submitted an online RTI application in the matter. It may be concerning-public authority transferred the RTI application offline but the original registration number of the RTI application had to be mentioned in entire communications concerning my RTI application. For the convenience of the first appellate authority the appellant has attached the specific communication in which the original registration number of the online application was not mentioned to confuse the appellant. Under this point the central public information officer provided misleading information unrelated with the sought information of the appellant. Earlier and current acts of the public information officer are promoting corruption in the Department of income tax.
2- It is submitted before the honourable sir that the appellant sought Information under point 2,3 and 4 which was not entertained by the central public information officer. Consequently, the central public information officer provided incomplete misleading information so action must be taken against him under disciplinary proceedings of the department.
The appellant is seeking information concerning with the mismanagement and irregularities and rampant corruption in the department of income tax and public information officer is not providing information to conceal the corruption of the department so central public information officer must be directed to provide the information to the information seeker as the matter concerns with the deep rooted corruption in the Department of income tax.
