Appointment of PIO & FAA by Public Authority

  • Being Holder of OCC from DoPT, Govt. of India and have referred multiple judgement and CIC, State IC decisions wherein I came to analysis that elected representative can not be appointed as PIO or FAA under the provisions of RTI Act, 2005 it is only officers appointed under service rules of the concerned public authority can only be appointed PIO & senior in rank to pio can only be appointed as FAA ( as per section 5 and 19) , thus need opinion of such analysis and its satisfaction please elaborate and oblige.

    Secondly can FFA reply instead of PIO since act cast obligation on PIO and FAA can direct the PIO to provide the information in case of no response from PIO
