The Karnataka Information Commission is considering first-of-its-kind RTI adalats to clear the backlog.
- The State is staring at a backlog of close to 30,000 cases, which came before the commission after the 2-step appeal process.
- The two step includes hearing by the information officer and an appellate authority.
- If the larger picture is considered, there are a lot more cases in limbo across several govt. departments.
