This chapter is concerned with the different procedures on the disposal of first appeal by the Departmental Appellate Authority, as well as the disposal of a second appeal by the Information Commission. The proper content of these appeals, the points that should be considered when the Departmental Appellate Authority is making decisions, and what should be done in case the PIO does not comply with the instructions given by the Appellate Authority are studied. The discussion looks at the powers held by the Information Commissioners, along with important case laws. The First Appellate Authority is discussed as well. The last portion of the chapter focuses on the subsequent disciplinary actions and penalties that could be imposed on PIOs. The power of imposing penalties and disciplinary actions can only be exercised by the Information Commission.

Keywords:   disposal procedures, first appeal, second appeal, Departmental Appellate Authority, Information Commission, Appellate Authority, case laws, First Appellate Authority, penalties, disciplinary actions
