Public Authority Details :-

* Public Authority Department of Ex-Servicemen Welfare

* CPIO of Public Authority approached Nodal Officer
CPIO's Order/Decision Number Details not provided

* CPIO's Order/Decision Date

* Prayer or Relief Sought


I am aggrieved by the response of the CPIO dated 8.10.2014 (attached as supporting document) in response to my request dated 21.9.2014 that information cannot be provided because the file is under submission. This is not one of the grounds for not providing information under Section 7 of the RTI Act, 2005.

I therefore request that the information be provided or a categorical refusal and the grounds vide Section 7 (8) thereof be provided to me within the time frame provided by the RTI Act, 2005.

It appears that CPIO is disposing off my request for information summarily stating the file is under submission is contravening Section 18 Sub-sections (b), (c), (e) and (f).
