- . It is observed that the PIO/Director Medical Education
and Research has erred in not transferring the case under section 6 (3)
within 5 days of the receipt of the application. It has also not
explained as to why once the application had already been returned with
the fee to the applicant, for what reason the matter was reopened, and
another communication reportedly sent to the applicant dated 19.12.2007.
There is no proof of registry or receipt from the applicant for this
communication and neither is it mentioned by the applicant in his
complaint dated 05.04.2008, creating a doubt as to whether they were
issued at all. It is also observed that the stand of the Homoeopathic
Council that an amount of Rs. 250/- be deposited is wrong since
as per the provisions of the
section 7 (6) “the information shall be provided free of charge where a
public authority fails to comply with the time limits specified in
subsection 1” (30 days).
- The PIO/Director Medical Education is hereby directed to ensure that
the Homoeopathic Council gives the full information required to the
applicant free of charge within 10 days duly indexed, page numbered and
attested. Proof by way of
receipt from the complainant and a copy of the information supplied be
placed on the record of the Commission also without fail on the next
date of hearing.
