United Forum for RTI Campaign has demanded the State Government to appoint information commissioners immediately to clear all the pending cases.
In a press release, district chairman of the forum P.C. Sai Babu pointed out that the Andhra Pradesh State Information Commission (APIC) has about 6,000 cases piled up before it.
The four-member commission is left only with the Chief Information Commissioner (CIC), Jannat Hussein, as the terms of three other commissioners expired in November 2010.
The single member of the commission is still handling appeals and complaints filed in early 2009. Currently, appeals and complaints pertaining to home, general administration finance and planning, energy, revenue and relief, infrastructure and investment, industries and commerce, and Law department are being looked into by the CIC, Dr. Sai Babu said.
