Posts in the Chief Information Commissioner and Information Commissioners in Jammu and Kashmir Information Commisison have been vacant for quite some time now, and the commission has been defunct defacto since retirement of the Chief Information Commissioner (CIC), G.R Sufi on February 29, 2016.

Information Commissioner, Dr S.K Sharma completed his tenure on October 31, 2015.

Information Commissioner Er Nazir Ahmed completed his tenure on October 8 2016.

It is apalling and criminally negligent that the government has taken no initiative or interest to make the appointments so far. RTI itself in spirit and use, goes against the private interest of some Bureaucrats, government employees and their political bosses and looks like this is why the government is sitting lazy on the matter. We urge and appeal to the media and civil society to come together to build pressure on the government to immediately initiate the process of appointments so that the RTI apparatus in the state can become functional and usable at the earliest.
