Sashi Bindhani- Most Inefficient and useless Information Commissioner in Odisha

Mrs. Sashiprava Bindhani, the most inefficient, incapable and useless Odisha Information Commissioner – why

Dear  friends
As  I recall, when  name of Sashi Prava Bindhani  was declared  for the post of  Information Commissioner, few  so-called NGOs  and  Activists rose  to  jubilation   writing mail  to congratulate  her.  We the RTI Activists were  observing silently  and eagerly  waiting  to see her  performance.  Her true character being most inefficient  Information Commissioner  was exposed   by Pradip Pradhan  after few months  of  her  performance  in Commission.    
 We were expecting that  she will improve herself   by the time.  But alas, she is as usual.  As she does not have  knowledge  about  English  and lack writing  skill  and  judicial acumen, she could not write  decisions  nor  heard  properly  the cases  during  hearing  which has been alleged several times  by RTI  Activists  and complaint filed  to Governor, Odisha  seeking action against her.
 On 14.02.2017, I have filed RTI application to the PIO, office of Odisha Information Commission  for inspection of relevant records of Order passed by Sashiprava Bindhani, State Information Commissioner during the Period from November 2016 to February 2017. Then subsequent communication received from OIC for permission of inspection on 31st March 2017. Accordingly, I  inspected  all the files, documents, case records  of the cases  disposed by Sashi Prava Bindhanai.
 This is the outcome from my inspection of her Order which will surprise to all of you and many more.
   I go through the inspection on pick and choose basis from order passed in 4 months.

 Even after final hearing /order passed, most of the Order couldn’t be sent after 4/5/6 months since it was not completed in final shape to be sent in as a hard copy. Hence Applicant has to   wait for more than 4 to 5 months to receive his/her Order. Before this kind of long waiting a applicant already waiting since 1.5 /2 years to get his date of hearing before the commission.  
 In many hearing cases where there is hard evidence and purposefully delay by PIO , Commissioner Bindhani has only simply disposed off the case by ordering to supply the information without serving fine and taking Disciplinary action against delinquent PIO who is working at the  behest of corrupt officer in their department .This is  the modus operandi of a commissioner who   deserves to be disqualified by Governor and condemned  by so-called NGOs  and activists  who congratulated  her.
