Deputy Registrar can be PUBLIC INFORMATION OFFICER under RTI Act, 2005

Kindly refer the attached notice/directive/circular issued from the office of Commissioner & Registrar of Co-Op Department, Government of Maharashtra dated 30th December 2011, in said notice/directive/circular, it has been clearly mentioned that only Deputy Registrar of Concerned ward of Co-operative societies can be PUBLIC INFORMATION OFFICER under RTI Act, 2005, WHEREAS in various offices at Mumbai, the responsibility has been passed to lower staffs.
We have raised our objection before Divisional Joint Registrar of Co-Operative Department, Mumbai Region and have urged him to implement the same on priority basis.

Thanks & Regards
