Chief Information Commissioner Satyananda Mishra had directed the ASI to either disclose its report of the disputed site or in case, the disclosure has been prohibited by the Allahabad High Court through its order, the copy of that directive must be provided to activist Subhash Agrawal.
In the decision dated February 29, Mishra had given 10 working days to the ASI, after receiving the order, to comply with the directives.
However, even after nearly 45 days, no response was received by Agrawal prompting him to file a non-compliance complaint with the transparency panel.
"Your honour vide your esteemed order dated 29.02.2012 in appeal number CIC/SM/C/2011/000112 was kind enough to direct Archaeological Survey of India to respond to queries of my RTI petition within 10 working days of receipt of your esteemed verdict.
"But despite the copy of verdict been received many days ago, the public-authority has not responded to queries of my RTI petition as directed by your honour," Agrawal complained.
The ASI is understood to have carried out the survey of the disputed site on the directions of the Allahabad High Court which was hearing the matter.
Through his RTI application Agrawal had sought the copy of the report submitted by the ASI. The ASI refused to give the document, saying the report was meant exclusively for the high court.
