State Information Commission has directed the Mahilpur block and development officer (BDPO) to pay a compensation of Rs 1,000 to a complainant for failing to provide required information.

In November 2012, senior citizen Joginder Pal had requested the BDPO to provide information on a development project, but failed to get the required information in time.

The BDPO failed to provide this information even after the state commission's directive.

The commission has now ordered the BDPO to compensate the complainant by June 27 and supply the information immediately or face penalty under the RTI Act.
