Keeping in view increasing numbers of cases of non-compliance of orders, the central information commission is working on an information management system (IMS) to keep a tab on the defaulting public information officer (PIO).
The IMS which is awaiting DoPT’s approval would enable officials to prepare list of defaulting PIOs and also status of other orders passed by the commission, which is the apex body for RTI complaints at the centre. This would help commission take action against frequent erring officials and help applicant get needed information. This apart, the system would send SMS alert to complainants as soon as their complaints gets registered. It would also keep them updated on the progress of the complaint.
