State Information Commissioner Ravinder Singh Nagi has issued a show-cause notice to the District Education Officer (Secondary) for not providing the information to the appellant Hardeep Singh, a resident of Dabwali Road area, sought under the Right to Information (RTI) Act.

The State Information Commissioner has also asked the DEO to explain reasons through a duly attested affidavit on the next date of hearing as to why a penalty at the rate of Rs 250 per day, subject to a maximum of Rs 25,000, should not be imposed upon him for the delay in the supply of information.

He has also stated that the DEO is also afforded an opportunity of personal hearing before imposing the penalty.

The appellant had sought suitable compensation for the loss and detriment he had suffered since April 24, 2015, as he had attended five hearings in the commission while travelling from Bathinda.

The SIC, exercising the powers conferred through section 19 (8)(b) of the RTI Act, 2005, has ordered a compensation of Rs 5,000 to Hardeep Singh, to be paid by the public authority.
