Save RTI Appoint Information Commissioners in A.P & Telangana. 16k+ Petitions pending.
This petition had 671 supporters
The common State Information Commission for both the Telugu States A.P & Telangana is without Information Commissioners and has become defunct. There are around 16,000 Petitions and Second Appeals pending with the State Information Commission for the disposal and same are increasing every day. To promote transparency and accountability in every Public Authority under the spirit of RTI Act of 2005, which is also a Fundamental Right, this is vital for a vibrant and functional Democracy.
The State Information Commission became defunct in both the Telugu States, with the decision of Hon. Supreme Court upholding the decision of Hon. High Court setting aside the appointments of four Information Commissioners. The remaining two Information Commissioners Sri M.R.Ratan retired on 22-04-2017 and Sri P.Vijaya Babu retired on 15-05-2017 respectively.
I appeal H.E.Governor and both the Honourable Chief Ministers to ensure the appointment of Information Commissioners at the earliest. I also urge you to Constitute separate Information Commissions for both the States of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana.
