Refuting reports in a section of the media on the ambiguity regarding the applicability of the RTI Act in the UT of J&K, Dr Jitendra Singh said all provisions of the RTI Act will be enforced in the newly carved out UT. “At the lower level, – Public Information Officers (PIOs) and First Appellate Authority the procedure for disposing of RTI applications will remain the same; the CIC comes into picture when the applicant makes Second Appeal which can henceforth be filed with the CIC,” said Dr Jitendra Singh.
