New Delhi,11/01/18:Officers and staff of Central Information Commission CIC deserve full compliments for fulfilling commitment of Chief Information Commissioner towards successfully achieving almost a total paperless working as per ambitious government-plan for e-governance. It was nice presentation on 09.01.2019 by CIC-team at CIC-Bhawan New Delhi to explain in detail about the new paperless system with photographic comparison of old and new system where old system with full junk of files is now replaced by paperless working tables not only for Commissioners but for complete CIC-staff.
CIC should however make public on its website some of salient features of new paperless system which are presently available for their internal working only. Section-wise updated listing of decided court-cases and details of on-going court-cases challenging CIC-verdicts, updated section-wise compilation of DoPT circulars and complete case-files of listed cases at CIC should be put on regular CIC-website available for public-viewing. This will provide appellants, respondents and their representatives to put their cases more effectively during CIC-hearings. Making complete case-files at CIC public is of utmost necessity where presently co-respondents (public-authorities) cannot view case-files for getting themselves prepared for CIC-hearings.
