POST OF INFORMATION COMMISSIONERS SHOULD NOT BE OFFERED AS BONUS FOR BEING LOYAL TO POLITICIANS.
By November end, it is learnt that 22 posts of Information Commissioners at CIC and in different State Information Commissions will fall vacant. Before the appointment to these posts take place, there should be some transparent system of short-listing the candidates before placing their names to the three-member Committee headed by the Prime Minister. If we want fair and fearless working at the Commissions without any outside hidden interference, posts of Information Commissioners should not be doled out as a bonus to the persons for being loyal to one or other politician but should be given on the basis of merit. In the recent past, just before the last general election, Ms. Omita Pal was appointed as Central Information Commissioner and after the victory of the UPA again, she resigned, after working for few days and rejoined as an officer under Mr. Pranab Mukherjee, Union Minister.
