Consider the following statements.
1) The RTI Act 2005 declares the CIC to be a “Judicial authority”.
2) The Central Information Commission can order suo moto inquiry into matters related to RTI Act if there are reasonable grounds.
Which of the above is/are correct?
Both 1 and 2
CIC functions as a quasi-judicial authority. But, the RTI Act does not make it either a tribunal or a judicial authority. While inquiring, the Commission has the powers of a civil court in several matters. It can also order suo moto inquiry. During the inquiry of a complaint, the Commission may examine any record which is under the control of the public authority and no such record may be withheld from it on any grounds. In other words, all public records must be given to the Commission during inquiry for examination.
