CIC – RTI should not be used to harass public authority

CIC has held that RTI applicant should know that the Act is a means to promote public interest and should not be used as an instrument to harass the public authority. His repeated complaints have a grave impact on the functioning of CBSE, and if this is allowed, the public authority cannot focus on their core duties and their entire time will be devoted to such repeated/multiple RTI questions. This is misuse and it has to be checked.
