The Central Information Commission (CIC) has directed the Union Law Ministry to furnish details of the reply sent by Additional Solicitor-General A.S. Chandiok in response to a show-cause issued for his appearance in the Delhi High Court on behalf of the North Delhi Power Ltd. (NDPL), a private company.

Rights activist Subash Chandra Agrawal, on the basis of media reports about Mr. Chandiok's appearance for a private party and the show-cause notice issued to him, approached the Law Ministry seeking to know whether the ASG had sent his reply, and if so, to furnish the same. Further, during the farewell of Justice S.N. Aggarwal, a sitting judge of the Delhi High Court, who was transferred to the Madhya Pradesh High Court, Mr. Chandiok had reportedly questioned the judges transfer policy.
