The Chairman, Capital Development Authority was directed to provide the Appellant following requested information:
- “Are the registered Private and Cooperative Housing Societies given NOC for land acquisition and development?
- Is there a requirement from CDA to such housing societies to allocate a piece of land from Government school and college (both and boys)?
- If not, then can these laws be amended to provide land for government schools and colleges in each area?
How many of these societies have allocated land for such purpose”.
The Commission observed that the Respondent, CDA has not been implementing Orders of the commission. The commission has no option but to fulfil its legal obligation and offset this trend of raising cost in terms of time and money for citizens, the commission and the superior judiciary.
If directions of the commission in this Order are not followed, it will be left with no option but to invoke Section 20 (f) of the Right of Access to Information Act 2017.
