Property statement should be given AP.No.102/2007/SIC the word information under the RTI Act includes opinions, advices, press releases, circulars etc. But these are specific pieces of information held and available by the Public Authority and not information that is to be deducted or inferred or worked out by the PIO. The concept is to seek a definite information as readily available with the public authority. AP.No.104/2007/SIC there was continuous correspondence between the PIO, Industries Department and the requestor about the development of the enquiry and, the final reply was furnished on 2.5.2007. This practice is not contemplated under the Act. Information as available at the point of time of the request alone need to have been given. AP.No.600(4)/2008/SIC if a departmental statute prescribes certain fee for providing information like the copy of the document from the Sub Registrar Office or copy of the BTR register etc., that departmental fee will have to be remitted by the appellant.

Palat Mohandas, Chief Information Commissioner 2. P.N.Vijaya Kumar, State Information Commissioner AP.No.15/2007/SIC Shri.N.Premkumar, Nadukkeppurayil, Valiyakulam, Cherukulani.P.O.. Appellant Ranni-689673, Pathanamthitta. Vs Public Information Officer Food, Civil Supplies & Consumer Affairs Respondent Thiruvanathapuram. .ORDER This second appeal as stated by the Appellant is in protest against the order passed by the Public Information Officer, Food, Civil Supplies & Consumer Affairs Dept. In fact it is only a first appeal preferred against the Order of the PIO because the Appellant has not approached the Departmental Appellate Authority. However, the appeal was entertained. The request of the Appellant, originally, was for furnishing "“° ƒúܪ»³ª°µú ı“°ð¯oeÌ°Þ¸ ıÌoe¹˜°È ı°ß „ı¶¢¯ø˜Ü¾ ı¥°®¯¥ ¶ý¯¦Ì°µ§ µ£Ø¦¯¤° oe°¤£°¾¯Ï ¶¤¯‹»¥¯¤ª¥²µ“ ˆ¥² ı¯oeÞ µ-§ÀÏ ‰Ù°Ý° µ˜µ¥ µÇ“²Ì°¥²Ò˜¯—¸. “° ı¯oeÞ -°ª°Þ -ı¸µµ¨-¸ª‰²Ô°oe¸ µµ‰£¯¦°¤°È²á˜¯¶—¯? “° ı¯oe§°µ§½˜¶ı¥²Ê¸.? ıªÜ ‚µ¥ß¯¹ (¶ı¥²ª°ª¥¹) †Ò ª°ª¥Äà µµ‰£¯¦¯Ï ı¶ıÀ°¾²Ò² ". The Public Information Officer vide his letter dated 10.10.2006 had furnished the required information to the requestor. The names and addresses of the selected candidates were therefore informed of. The said report is before this Commission marked as Ext B1. The request was dated 5.10.2006 and the information was promptly furnished within five days. In the appeal, the Appellant had alleged that the information was incomplete and he required information "relating to interview for recommendation of a panel for consideration of appointment and requires the rank list prepared as per the interview". He has also requested for permission for inspection of records and concerned files. The PIO in his detailed report in obedience to a letter sent by this Commission had stated that the information requested was already furnished but now he had requested for the copy of the minutes of the committee who had interviewed him and also copy of the panel
  19. 19. prepared on the basis of the said interview and further permission to peruse the entire file. A scrutiny of the records would reveal the fact that the requestor had only asked for the panel and the same had already been supplied. He cannot now turn round and say that he intended to have certain other documents also. If he was in actual requirement of those documents he could have specified the details and descriptions of such documents in the application itself. There is no scope for change of requirement and thrusting in additional information in the appeal and that is outside the scope of the appeal. An appeal is only a continuation of the original proceedings and not the beginning of a new one. The appeal is, therefore, without merits and is therefore dismissed. Dated this the 22nd day of February 2007.
