Fix Time Limit For Response Under RTI

Chief information commissioner Wajahat Habibullah has advised the chief vigilance commissioner to fix time limits for getting responses from departments whose officials are being investigated by it.
"CVC may consider fixing time limits for responses by various departments to whom complaints are referred for investigation and report," Habibullah said in his order.
Habibullah offered the "advice" to Pratyush Sinha, chief vigilance commissioner, under section 25 (5) of the RTI Act "so as to bring the exercise of the functions of the CVC into greater conformity with the spirit of the RTI Act".
The CIC was hearing the plea of Anjani Bhushan who had sought to know from CVC the details of inquiries conducted against an employee of United India Insurance, but could not get them as the probe was still going on at the time of filing the application.
