New Delhi: The Central Information Commission has directed the Delhi Government to publish all gazette notifications issued by its departments on its web site from August 15.

"All gazette notifications issued after August 15, 2011 by all the departments, autonomous bodies, corporations and local bodies under the Government of Delhi shall be displayed on the web site of the Government of Delhi," Information Commissioner Shailesh Gandhi said.

He was hearing a plea of RTI applicant Rejimon C K who complained before the Commission that "vital documents" gazette notifications are not available for public at large.

Agreeing with the applicant, the CIC said not only the notifications issued after August 15, but also previous ones will be placed on the web site in a time bound manner as per mandatory provisions of the section four of the RTI Act.

During the hearing, Delhi Government officials also agreed with the Commission and assured it that the instructions will be followed from August 15.
